Friends, 1996 is one of my all-time favorite years, and it was also a leap year. Pick out your favorite babydoll tee and gather round the wayback machine, because it’s time to say goodbye to Jessica Fletcher.
Ah, 1995. When a young PoM’s fancy turned to thoughts of giant flannel shirts and Doc Martens. 1995 was a big year in entertainment, world events, and technology. Let’s dive in. Read More P-Mag Nostalgia Project: 1995 with Pileofmonkeys
