The 90s


February is Black History Month, and each week, all month, World Cafe correspondent John Morrison will be taking you on a journey of R&B through the decades. In this session, we dig into the '90s, when groups like TLC were offering a modern take on styles that had taken root decades before.

"Vocal groups are a tradition in Black music, whether we are talking about the doo-wop era, Motown, the girl groups of the '60s," Morrison says. "It's like a key, defining characteristic of Black music."

The other crucial facet of nineties emotional intelligence, such as it was, was that while caring about things was not cool, caring about people was, so long as you displayed your care for them by being as damaged as possible and then letting them know that your damaged self had, out of all the other damaged selves in the world, chosen them. Hence, how, in Reality Bites, Troy gets to say this:

This is a truly dark-ass roast with just the right amount of roasty toasty marshmallow before it blows up like a burning asteroid at your kid-friendly bbq party. If you're looking for more of an Italian roast, this is your game. Not for the faint of heart.

His worldwide album sales are over 25 million and individual songs total over 160 million and are still selling.

With over 20 million records sold worldwide, Grammy award-winning and multi-platinum recording artist Coolio is an artist known around the world as a musical and cooking master of extraordinary reinvention.

2019 is sooo overrated, but you know what's ALL THAT? The SAVED BY THE 90s PARTY! Boo Ya! Hailing originally from New York City and now active all over the U.S., this party has tons of live 90s music from a totally fresh band (they're da bomb). Get ready for everything from Third Eye Blind to the Spice Girls, from The Backstreet Boys to The Beastie Boys. And after that, we're not leaving you hangin'! As if! Get jiggy with the DJ spinning dope tunes all night.

The term 'supermodel' became popular during the 1980s, when models started to become celebrities in their own right. By the 1990s, the supermodel was a prominent feature in the media and the title quickly became the model equivalent of a superstar. Suddenly models had a voice; they appeared on talk shows, were written about in gossip columns, partied in the trendiest nightspots, and landed movie roles.

This new period began in 1990, as trend-setting British Vogue brought out an era-defining cover in January 1990. The magazine displayed a black and white photograph of Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Tatjana Patitz.

The photograph was taken by Peter Lindbergh, whose fashion and beauty photography added a sense of realism in a time of excessive retouching. His humanist approach was inspired by documentary and street photography and he wanted to change the notion of perfection.

But the increased spotlight on guns does not reflect the overall gun violence trend in the country. Although most Americans think the number of gun crimes has risen, the U.S. gun homicide rate has actually stabilized somewhat in recent years, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of death certificate data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Between 1993 and 2000, the gun homicide rate dropped by nearly half, from 7.0 homicides to 3.8 homicides per 100,000 people. Since then, the gun homicide rate has remained relatively flat. From 2009 to 2014, the most recent year data are available, the number of gun homicides has hovered around 11,000 and 12,000 per year.

Despite these trends, most U.S. adults think gun crimes have increased. In our 2013 survey, more than half (56%) of Americans said the number of gun crimes had gone up compared with 20 years ago. Another 26% said the number of gun crimes had remained the same, and just 12% said gun crimes had declined.

The public has been divided on the issue of gun ownership in recent years. In our July survey, 50% said it is more important to control gun ownership and 47% said it is more important to protect the right of Americans to own guns. Support for controlling gun ownership has declined; throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, a majority of Americans said it was more important to control gun ownership.

The July survey also found that Americans strongly support a variety of specific gun control measures, including expanded background checks (85%), laws to prevent people with mental illness from purchasing guns (79%) and creation of a federal database to track all gun sales (70%). A smaller majority (57%) support a ban on assault-style weapons.

Call it the Zuckerberg paradox: The more the 21st century is dominated by smart devices and social media, the more there is a collective longing for the 1990s, the decade that trumpeted the end of the millennium and marked the final gasp of a global culture about to be completely rewired by Big Tech. Everywhere you look, across music, fashion, film, and television, there seems to be a postmodern pining for a less plugged-in era.
