If you want to know people’s ages, just ask pal.

  1. Got together with the TV, innit.

#4

Voted 1990, in a clash of the titans with 2008, as both seemed mostly great and optimistic years for DiS friendly music and politics. Then again both happened during an economic downturn. I don’t know if there have been any truly great years as people every Christmas have to meet their racist nan


#5

In 2013 I had the fun of my first year at university, and the fun of starting second year living in a house with a bunch of people I really liked where we pretty much exclusively played FIFA and watched Netflix all day with no other responsibilities.

I’m not sure if this means it’s objectively the best year of the last 50 years though, but I had a good time at least.


#6

A lot of my favourite albums came out in 1997, and everything just seemed a lot rosier. Also I was 12, so everything was brilliant.


#7

Yeah, I was 11 in 1997 and every now and then I look back on that from my current advancing years and think, ‘Holy cow, the 90s really were just totally golden, weren’t they?’ But like you say, if I’d been 31 then I might not have felt the same way.


#8

Personally, 2013.

Politics, probably something between 1990 and 2001. Whichever one had the fewest genocides.

Culture is a tricky one… Wouldn’t know where to start!


#9

I went 89 but 90 also a good shout - Berlin Wall coming down, sense that maybe we weren’t all going to get nuked, before the Gulf War and the former Yugoslavia went off and ruined everything. Late 90s maybe worth a shout as well.
