1999 Party Like Its 1999
Compiled by fredthebear

This is a collection split. FTB's collection of games from the decade of the 1990s outgrew itself, so it's time for a shave. 1999 gets the call to do it's own thing.

There was a MASSIVE turn-of-the century celebration on New Year's Eve to usher in 2000. The celebrities, groupies, the drunks, the police, young adults, socialites, street peddlers, new waivers, old lovers, horoscopers, zesty adventurers, hazies and the crazies certainly were out in full force. The rest of us stayed glued to the television to watch unfolding events. The internet was not yet a preferred source of news and cell phones were just portable telephones yet to be mainstream.

Yellow journalism had returned with the numerous scandals and blatantly protective cover-ups of the crooked Clinton political machine of the 1990s (as well as the 1980s harkening back to days as governor of Arkansas). The tabloids had a field day. (The much traveled Barack Hussein Obama II was serving as a state senator in Illinois. Donald Trump was making millions in real estate, owned the Miss Universe Organization, and was married to his second wife Marla Maples from 1993-1999. The nucleus of the Bush family was in Texas, as usual.) The national news media had started down the path of partisan divide and sensationalism. Meaning, the average American could not count on hearing the real truth anymore -- political spin was in -- the top priority of the media -- not the actual truth. It is propaganda; lies by omission if not outright. Speculation and opinion was rampant. It was more important to be a sexy talking head than to insightfully understand the details of what you were talking about.

People were uncertain what might occur when the calendar flipped over from December 1999 to January 2000. Some thought the world would come to financial standstill/collapse as computers would not be able to "roll over" to the new century and all sorts of catastrophes would occur. There was enough advanced warning that nothing of the sort happened. The world kept spinning, the clocks kept ticking, the power stayed on, and computers kept whirling along. The uncertainty did cause some concern to FTB, though. FTB likes to be prepared in advance and avoid trouble, just like his chess game.

One doubts if the human race will be around to see the new 3000. Think how much things changed from the year 1000 to 2000. Mother Earth and Father Time will have much to say about that.

Song Lyrics:
I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin'
Could of sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple
There were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' to run from the destruction
You know I didn't even care
'Cause they say two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999
I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go to fast
But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant to last
War is all around us
My mind says prepare to fight
So if I gotta die
I'm gonna listen to my body tonight
Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999
Yeah, yeah
Lemme tell ya somethin'
If you didn't come to party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby he's ready to roar, yeah yeah
Everybody's got a bomb
We could all die here today, uhh
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away
They say two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight, we gonna, we gonna (tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999) Say it one more time
Two thousand zero zero
Party over, oops out of time
Yeah, yeah
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999) 1999 (1999)
Don't ya want to go (1999)
Don't ya want to go (1999)
We could all die here today (1999)
I don't want to die
I'd rather dance my life away
