Because so many of you genuinely loved the best pics tagged 1992 on Tumblr, we’re at it again. This time, we’re jumping to 1995 …

In one day, SiriusXM’s “90s on 9″ aired the 1995 song “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” by the immortal Deep Blue Something three times. That’s three times more than I remember hearing it in the entire year of 1995.

This all got me to thinking — note, I’m a man with lots of free time on his hands — is it a silly pursuit, in the end, as I get older to be swept up in a wave of nostalgia for the ’90s? Is it just as dumb as people pretending, now in retrospect, to love hair bands from the 1980s (see: “Rock of Ages”)? Is what was dross in 1995 still dross in 2012? Or does, as the saying goes, tragedy plus time equal comedy? Or at least a new-found appreciation for it?

Enough time has passed that we’re, like it or not, going to soon be experiencing a wave of ’90s nostalgia. Go to a mall and see the scruffy, sniveling teenagers in skinny jeans and Kurt Cobain T-shirts and try to choke back the indignation or the urge to scream, “stay off my lawn.” In any event, a week ago, again out of boredom, I typed “1992″ into Tumblr and found some fantastic images, would the streak continue for 1995 or as the summer continues … the rest of the decade? Let’s find out.
