My uncle taught and then was principal at the high school in West in the late 80s/early 90s. So I feel like I know West slightly better than just the Czech Stop (plus, we used to stop at the Dairy Queen far more often).
Thinking of you, West!
Wanderlust, “I Walked.”
I adored this song in high school. I’d listen to it over and over and over again, rewinding and fast-forwarding the tape on my walkman. My favorite moment is at 2:45, which even now makes me turn up my speakers a little louder.

We had to memorize this passage in my senior year AP English class. The first line is all I can still instantly recall.
Opening Sequence of Nickelodeon’s Doug (1991-1994)
My sister uses the theme music from this show as the ringtone for my calls.
Back in high school, I once had a faux argument with a friend in computer class about who had the biggest crush on Michael Stipe.
Although I no longer feel so strongly about Stipe or REM, I can definitely see where Ben’s coming from here.
Anyone else remember Long Ago and Far Away? That’s how I was first introduced to Mr. Jones.
TIMMY T, “One More Try.”
Don’t ask me why this song is currently stuck in my head, for I have no idea.

Asterix is French, not British! My dad used to check those comic books out (along with Tintin) from the library for my sis and I when we were little.
While my sister was in France this year she even went to the Asterix theme park!
