As far as groundbreaking and memorable cultural events go, only a handful have occurred in the same year as 1994. Some of today’s biggest stars made their debuts, and their musical and cinematic performances cemented their place in history as legendary performers. When the grandson in the future inquires as to when the good old days were, respond with the year 1994 as the year of the Lord.
For the same reason as any other idiot who was born after the fall of the Berlin Wall, I have a firm and unrealistic belief that I am special and unique. That my father is more powerful than the other fathers, and that my friends are more resilient than all of you.
I even go so far as to believe that the year of my birth should be commemorated in some way, shape, or form. Concerning my father’s strength, the jury is still out, and all I have are hints and incompetent testimony from my friends about how cool they are under pressure. But in exchange, I am now able to provide tangible and irrefutable proof that 1994 was the year when everything reached its zenith At the very least, culturally.
Because, despite the fact that hell on earth was taking place in the small Central African country of Rwanda, where a brutal genocide claimed the lives of up to 800,000 people, the West benefited from the newfound calm that had followed the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. On January 8, 1994, the drunken Boris signed the Kremlin chords with the suffering bass Bill Clinton, which were a series of agreements that made it clear that the United States and Russia no longer had an atomic target that was constantly tuned to the same frequency.
There is a possibility that not having to live in constant fear of being hit by an atomic bomb allowed the creative team to find the extra percentages because the level set for the day was unprecedented.
The members of the Academy Award jury must have had a terrible sense of injustice that neither ‘Pulp Fiction’ nor ‘A World Outside’ were able to take home the award for best picture of the year, but in their defense, it must have been like choosing between its children when the field included the two previous films as well as the eventual winner, ‘Forrest Gump.’ All three of these films are considered to be absolute classics in today’s world.
