I was 15 I guess at the time, I remember walking with my parents up to my Grandma's house.  She lived at the end of our lane, probably about 150 yards away or so.  When we left it was pretty much white-out conditions and we had a somewhat difficult time finding our house on the way back.  Never got really hairy, but there were definitely a few moments where we weren't sure which direction to go.

You couldn't even really go outside and play in the snow because if you stepped down you'd sink about a foot into the ground.

 

I do recall getting a bit of cabin fever after day 3 or so.  I never really WANTED to go to school, but it was nice to be able to leave the house and not feel like you weren't sure if you were going to make it back.

 

Then, of course, I went to Buffalo for three years, and they would have laughed at us.

Must've played about 5 seasons of Tecmo Super Bowl that week with friends.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I listened the shit out of Sixteen Stone then too. I associate the blizzard with Glycerine.

The Rock

Eraser

A Time to Kill is one of my all time favorites but a lot of really good movies there.

A Time to Kill: for people who look at To Kill A Mockingbird and think, "Meh. This needs a little McConaughey to be good." :D

 

I always enjoy watching a bit when it comes on TNT. Same with The Rock.

 

In high-school English our teacher showed us that version of Romeo and Juliet when we were studying the play.

 

By the way, will Independence Day set some sort of record for longest time between original movie and sequel?

I saw Independence Day about 6 times in theaters. My favorite of the movies Sean listed.  Fargo clearly the best, though.

I saw Fargo and it blew my mind.  I wasn't allowed to see Pulp Fiction but by the time 1996 rolled around and I was 14 my mom pretty much gave up trying to shelter me from "bad" movies.

 

It's an unreal movie, I'd probably rank it second by the Coen Bros after Big Lebowski.  No Country for Old Men might be better also, but I'd still take Fargo.

Yeah Fargo is their best, then No Country, then Big Lebowski.

 

Hard to compare them, though.

Just another pop culture opinion of yours that is wrong.

 

No biggie, sorta used to it by now, ya know?

Lebowski, Fargo, O Brother, No Country for me.

 

Haven't seen any of the new ones since Burn After Read, though.  Their early ones don't really do it for me very much.

 

I have, sadly, seen both Ladykillers and Intolerably Cruelty.

No Country, Lebowski, Fargo, True Grit.

True Grit is a great movie.

I have to watch Fargo again.  When I watched it years ago, I thought it was a slow, boring movie.

See Scream is a movie that makes me say 20 yrs flies so fast. I remember vividly planning and then going and watching that movie.

Yep.  I saw it with some friends, including Stoney.  Still a good movie an one of my favorite "horror" movies.

I do remember getting pretty sick in early '96 and thinking I was going to die and not get to see Alomar play. I was so stoked for that signing and just the winter the Os had in general. Davey, Surhoff, Myers, Wells.

I said it in the 1995 thread. The moves they made in December 1995 were insane. I remember coming close to getting Cone too. Should have ponied up the extra cash for him and we probably win a WS in 96 or 97.
