As we continue with the episodes of ANSWER ME 1997
, we also can't help but keep up the reminiscing (check out our BLAST TO THE PAST
post). This time I'm back with some more 1997-specific events from around the world, in honor of this awesome drama! Dundundun.......
Internet Explorer version 4 released:
Dial-up time! Does anybody still use Internet Explorer? Well, remember the days when you didn't have a choice?
The first book in the Harry Potter series is published:
In other parts of the world it's known as "The Philospher's Stone." Either way, it was the first in many more books to come in a 21st century wizarding revolution!
Films Titanic, Men in Black, and My Best Friend's Wedding :
You've probably seen all three of these Blockbuster hits, but did you know they all came out in 1997? Oh, young Leo!
A movie ticket cost about $4.59:
Speaking of movies, today a movie ticket cost about $12 on average. Can you believe that only 15 years ago it wasn't even half that amount?
Paul McCartney is knighted by Elizabeth II:
And so he became SIR Paul McCartney!
Spiceworld: The Movie:
Who has this at home on VHS? *raises hand* Yeah, and if you haven't seen it, YOU MUST! It's a rite of passage, seriously!
Bands “Destiny’s Child," “Death Cab for Cutie,” and “Coldplay” formed:
Yes, all three of these mega-bands started in '97! Can you even remember a time WITHOUT these game-changers? Yeah, neither can we.
Beanie Babies become the must-have toy for Christmas:
These are an investment, they said. They'll be worth thousands in the future, they said.
Kpop girl bands S.E.S. and Baby V.O.X. formed:
Aww, baby Yoon Eun Hye! And look at that hair! And those clothes. Ah, the beginning of kpop groups!
There were 151 Pokemon:
I don't even want to know how many there are now. Too many to catch 'em all, at least =/
Pluto was a planet:
It just doesn't seem right to only have 8 planets!! Poor Pluto. Don't worry, you'll always be a planet to us.
So how was 1997 for you? What's your favorite memory?
