Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Can’t Believe It’s Been 20 Years Edition


It was pointed out to me recently that it had been two decades since Brandon Lee, star of ‘The Crow’, had died in an on-set accident during the production of that movie, a revelation that knocked me back a couple of metaphorical steps.  1994, after all, seems like not so very long ago, a time when I had a crappy red car, acted like a teenage idiot and was dating a nice young lady from Topeka.  Now, I have a slightly less crappy car of a more mature “Merlot” color, act like a slightly more seasoned teenage idiot, and have married that nice young lady and moved to Topeka.  In many ways, it’s clearly forever ago, but I still remember buying the O’Barr comic off the stands when issue #3 came out, remember the response of my fellow callow college folk to the film, and even vividly remember the bouncer at the Brass Rail whose Crow Halloween costume was eerily perfect, all of which begs today’s nostalgic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) refuses to believe that the Crisis On Infinite Earths was 30 years ago, asking: What favorite bits of pop culture can you not believe are as old as they actually are?
