She sings karaoke a little bit in LIT, but it's Bill Murray singing "More Than This" that people actually remember.
My 1999 highlights while it was actually happening:
Dream Theater's Scenes From A Memory
Led Zeppelin - entire catalogue
R. E. M. - Green, Murmur
Rush - Most of their discography from 1975 to about 1984
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Metallica - Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, ...And Justice For All, Garage Inc.
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
American Pie (now THIS thing is an awkward time capsule by now)
The Blair Witch Project
Wild Wild West
The Sixth Sense
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Final Fantasy Tactics, GoldenEye 007 - I swear to God it was just those three games ALL YEAR. 1998 was when I did Final Fantasy IV, V and VII. Mostly on emulators of course.
Wasn't really doing a lot of reading and hadn't even started watching classic movies (never saw Pulp Fiction or Fight Club until 2005). TV highlights? I wasn't watching any, Buffy went through its supposedly best year then but I still the show wasn't actually solid until they made it out of high school, and X-Files went to crap starting that year. I have SP season 3 on DVD, that's 1999 I guess. Decent season, but 5 and 6 are way better, bleurghski.
Pop music hit songs from 1999? God only knows. Smash Mouth's "All Star"? Garg. Alt-rock in the toilet? Yeahhhh. Cher's "Believe"? Kill, kill. "Genie In A Bottle"? Britney Spears? "Livin' La Vica Loca"? That last one's hilarious, that and the lame Santana tune made all sorts of mainstream writers try to champion some sort of "Latin goes pop" revival, ending up on magazine covers and whatnot. Deurrrhh!!!
My 1999 highlights now:
The Soft Bulletin, Summerteeth, Terror Twilight, Apple Venus, Scenes From A Memory
Eyes Wide Shut, Fight Club, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, The Sixth Sense, Magnolia, Being John Malkovich. I don't HATE any of the other movies I listed above anymore (1999 is also responsible for Dogma and Boondock Saints, after all, two films on my zero-star list)
TV: The Sopranos (glorious first season....That Championship Year....also a HUGE time capsule of 1999-ness, don't kid yourself, go check out AJ's bull cut if you don't believe me. Oh wait, you never watched it.)
Columbine, also a huge time capsule.
"Ska": That movement seems so short lived and flimsy that all I can even remember from it are two or three Mighty Mighty Bosstones and one or two No Doubt songs. I didn't ever hear Reel Big Fish doing "Take On Me" until yesterday, my bleurgh.
Blue Ruin: Watched....probably sometime late last year? I remembered seeing a review on the Ebert site by whoever, that piqued my curiosity so I wrote it down. Will watch Green Room veddy veddy soon.
"Axl as bizarro Kurdt": I didn't know we'd actually had a discussion about that specifically, I also didn't know Klosterman had said anything about it.
