Did I Do That?: The Best (and Worst) of the ’90s – Toys, Games, Shows, and Other Stuff
An outrageously fun, tongue in cheek follow up to Just Can’t Get Enough; Abrams’s bestselling survey of ’80s pop culture, Did I Do That?: The Best (and Worst) of the ’90s relives the decade that brought the Power Rangers, Saved by the Bell and Beanie Babies to worldwide stardom. Celebrating the most sought after, wacky, ubiquitous and downright bizarre bits of 1990s pop culture, this chock full book looks back at everything kids begged their parents for and comments on what made all that stuff so irresistible. Each of the top forty pop culture phenomena of the era; from toys and games to television and film to books and music, gets its own short chapter discussing its rise and fall, spinoffs, favorite moments and more, along with running commentary on what was hot at the moment and what was suddenly “so five minutes ago.”
Amber Humphrey graduated from Northwestern University with an incredibly gorgeous but hitherto useless degree in Medieval European history. Since receiving an MFA in writing from the University of San Francisco, she has contributed to the San Francisco Bay Guardian, filmschoolrejects.com and Tavi Gevinson’s Rookie. Humphrey is the preeminent ’90s scholar in her neighborhood and is very enthusiastic about burritos. She blogs about the olden days at nostomanic.blogspot.com.
