So it begins anew...

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I do think 1994 would be a good choice.

I'm thinking about increasing the number of voters.  We're staying away from 2000 to 2006 because of the Best of Decade stuff we did?  Filmspots go back to 2007.  But I think a year from 2000 to 2006 or the 90s would bring in 30 to 50 participants.  Then, we can hope people get bit by the bug and then for the 3rd Retro we can do something from the 30s or 40s.

That's my thinking for 1994.
