visitors to Blast from the Past. My name is
Scott and I am the webmaster of this
website. I am extremely proud of offering others
my age the ability to remember different aspects of
their childhood through the use of this website.
Therefore, I thought that I would explain a
little bit about who I am instead of just being some
webmaster hiding behind the information on his site.
I was born on June 24,
1985 about an hour after my fraternal twin brother,
Ryan. Ever since I can remember, kid's TV and
anything associated with these programs such as their
video games or action figures have always been an
important part of my life. Like any other kid from
my generation, I can remember playing Nintendo games
inspired by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or being
outside at recess pretending to be Jason the Red Ranger
and leading a group of my fellow friends on a fight
against others pretending to be Rita Repulsa and
her henchmen before the bell rang to signal that
playtime was over.
At a young age, I learned
how to use a VCR and ultimately how to record
programs off of TV. Consequently, I decided one
day to use my newly acquired ability and record my
favorite shows on tape. Being the perfectionist
that I am, I wasn't satisfied by just recording on
certain days; if I taped a show, I wanted every episode
on tape. Therefore, I was able to amass a pretty
good collection of shows. It is these tapes that I
have used to create the basis of the videos available
for download on this website.
I have always had a
special interest in the shows on air during the
90s. They seem
to stand out from the rest because they are a part of my
generation. In my opinion, kid's programs
produced today are lackluster and follow cookie-cutter
plots. There is nothing original and these shows
must follow even stricter guidelines given by the
FCC. I truly believe that the sometimes ridiculous
rules that programs have to follow have watered down
today's shows and have prevented them from reaching the
same greatness as those produced during the 90s.
Additionally, it seems like networks only care about
advertising and making money and not about the fans who
watch their programs. I mean, credits cannot be
shown without either a split screen ad or at least some
form of voice-over advertisement.
I am a huge Spider-Man
fan and have collected comics since 1995. In my
free time, I like to play cards, hang out with my
friends, and practice playing baseball.
