In 1991 I turned six and was just starting to get into playing computer games and listening to more country music.


Rank Album Artist Title Label Impression
1 Michael J. Ilnicki The Treehouse Soundtrack Brøderbund

The Treehouse theme, probably my most played cassette of all time, plus it was pink.

2 Various Artists Beauty and the Beast: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Walt Disney

No one's slick as Gaston.

3 Garth Brooks Ropin' the Wind Capitol Nashville

I will sail my vessel 'til the river runs dry.

4 The Mighty Mighty Bosstones More Noise and Other Disturbances Taang!

Look at all that plaid. Where did you go?

5 Alan Jackson Don't Rock the Jukebox Arista

Play me a country song.



Rank Book Title Author Impression
1 Looking at the Moon Kit Pearson

The second book in the Guests of War trilogy.



Rank Movie Title Impression
1 The Silence of the Lambs

I remember being impressed with this movie when it first came out, but I really need to rewatch it.

2 Terminator 2: Judgment Day

James Cameron did have a knack for making great sequels. Let's hope Avatar 2 has the same fate.

3 Point Break

Bank robbing surfers, doesn't get much more 90's than this.

4 Beauty and the Beast

The Disney Renaissance dominance continues.

5 Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

The introduction of Death is a great one.


Video Games

Rank Game Title Developer Impression
1 Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge LucasArts

The second game in the Monkey Island series and arguably better.

2 The Treehouse Brøderbund

That opossum looks awesome. For an educational game, there sure was a lot of content in it and I was still playing it years later.

3 Commander Keen in Goodbye, Galaxy id Software

The pogo stick makes this the most pop punk platformer there is and also my introduction to the genre.

4 Hugo II, Whodunit? Gray Design Associates

The first video game I ever received as a present, which I think was just a shareware floppy disk. In retrospect it's not a very good game, but it teach me the meaning of befuddling.

5 Final Fantasy IV Square

My first Final Fantasy, which is probably why it is my favorite that I played on a SNES emulator as a teenager since I didn't have a SNES.
