I recently discovered that 90s club hits have spectacular music videos. My knowledge of these songs was mostly limited to hearing them during across the floor, jazz exercises at Miss Hamilton’s School of Dance. Thankfully Youtube exists, and we can rediscover these lost gems of the early 90s. Between the black leather, spaghetti straps, and […]
Taal (1999) is a bad movie. I remember seeing this movie when it was in theaters and thinking, “this is terrible.” I was 12.
You know what movie always passes the Bechdel test? Spice World.
Last time I did one of these, I encouraged everyone to revisit the ’80s through Girls Just Want to Have Fun. Now, if that Columbia undergrad rocking the Sketchers platform shoes on the subway was any indication, we have cycled through fashion and have hit the late ’90s, early ’00s. If I needed a refresher […]
If you’ve seen any of John Waters’ movies, you know to expect a certain breed of weird misfit comedy that is wonderful and dark and hilarious; Cry-Baby (1990) is one of those movies.
Sometimes we go on YouTube spirals of old movie soundtracks or club hits. Sometimes you just really want to relive those Pure Moods commercials.
I’ve been waiting for Prime Suspect to turn up on Netflix Instant for… oh, as long as I’ve had a subscription. I love Helen Mirren. How can you not love Helen Mirren, really?
At first, the only songs that popped into my head for this letter were bad ones like “Que Sera Sera” (sorry, Doris Day fans) or “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” (ditto Backstreet gals).
Songs that start with The Letter N (somewhat predictably) often have the words “Never” and “New York” in their titles. We’ve got that here, plus some ’90s classics. Get in.
That’s right, friends and lovers, I can pander to my audience. It’s 10 p.m., and I don’t know where my children are because I don’t have any.
Since last week’s roadside attraction trivia was so obscure, I have decided to go easy on you this week. I am a huge sucker for VH1’s “100 Greatest Songs” lists. The Mister and I have been known to kill a whole Saturday watching one of their marathons and bickering about who should have been higher/lower […]
I will be perfectly honest: I love Netflix Instant. Objectively, the Instant Queue is the entity I’ve spent the most time with in the last year or so. I love it, and for the most part I think it loves me back. Once, in the midst of my Worst Day Ever, I discovered that there […]
After last week’s episode, which I admittedly didn’t like, it was nice to get back to some more natural-seeming character development, even if it did have a decisive theme: beauty. Angela’s insecurity about her appearance comes to a head just as former best friend Sharon Cherski starts to get some attention for hers. Ricky decides […]
My So-Called Life is one of those shows that made a significant impact despite being on-air for an incredibly short time. It premiered in August 1994, and its last episode aired in January, 1995. That’s only five months. It was a victim of not only low ratings, but of the misfortune of being a bit […]
