Scream and the best ’90s movies to watch on Netflix right now

Someone asked me once to describe the ’90s in one word, and no matter how you string all 26 letters of the alphabet together, one word just isn’t enough. The ’90s was flannel shirts and Doc Martins, the Macarena and Beanie Babies, fanny packs and Skip-It. It was Keds and New Kids, sleepovers and puff paint, and more neon than anyone should ever wear. It was Naughty by Nature and Biggie, Nirvana and No Doubt, TGIF and Saturday morning cartoons. The ’90s was the best of times and the worst of times all rolled into one decade we didn’t fully appreciate until it was all over. Luckily for us, Netflix is currently streaming an impressive selection of 90s movies for our nostalgic viewing pleasure. Here’s a look at the Netflix movies you won’t want to miss.

Mountain Lion Found in Palisades Trailer Park

According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), a 50-pound female cougar, also known as a mountain lion, was spotted up a tree at the Tahitian Terrace Trailer Park in Pacific Palisades on Monday. According to a Facebook post released by the department, “The Los Angeles Police Department secured the scene and the lion was safely tranquilized and removed by CDFW wildlife officers and biologists.” The young cougar, now known as P-75, was outfitted with a GPS tracking collar and identification tag in her ear. She’s the 75th and newest member in the National Park Service’s (NPS) study on mountain lions in the 150,000 acres of hiking trails, beaches, and canyons that make up the Santa Monica Mountains. After her tranquilizer wore off, P-75 was released into the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation area.

California’s Largest Recycling Center Closes

P-61 Mountain Lion Crosses Freeway

For the first time throughout the course of a 17-year study of mountain lions in or around the Santa Monica Mountains, a GPS tracked lion has crossed the 405 freeway. The rare event was documented by the National Park Service (NPS) in the Sepulveda Pass area on July 19 between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. P-61, a four-year old mountain lion first captured and outfitted with a GPS collar in October 2017, was headed east according to NPS footage. “Although P-61 successfully crossed the 405, his feat is a re

Santa Monica and ‘Big One’ Preparedness

This article was originally published on February 11, 2019 but is being shared again in light of the two earthquakes that rattled the Southlands over Fourth of July weekend. All it took was 10-20 seconds for the 1994 Northridge earthquake to rattle Southern California in a way no earthquake had done before. Dozens of people lost their lives and thousands more were injured as the state reeled from a catastrophic event that cost billions in damages. As devastating as the Northridge earthquake was, seismologists warn that the hypothetical “Big One”- an earthquake magnitude of 8.0 or more- would be even more disastrous.
