Best of P-Mag: Growing up X: From Heathers to Reality Bites

As a member of Generation X myself, I’ve often wondered why there’s so little discussion of us in popular discourse. PMag was one of the first places I came that talked about things that were important to my not-quite-Greatest Generation. And, come on, Heathers is awesome. – Slay As a teenager in the late eighties, […]

Paging Winona Ryder: “Heathers” is Coming to TV

We all know the movie studios are having difficulty coming up with original ideas – how else can you explain every other movie either being a reboot or a sequel – but now it seems to have spread to the Bravo network.

What I Watched While Sick

A couple of weeks ago, I got nasty cold. I had no energy to do anything but watch movies. Here’s my evaluation of each movie I watched in terms of its ability to make you not feel like crap but still catch the thread of the movie at the end by the time you’ve fallen […]

Persephone Movie Club: “Heathers”

Welcome to the second installment of the Persephone Movie Club. This week, we’ll be discussing Heathers. Somehow I’d never seen it until now and didn’t really know much about it, so I’m excited to have finally caught up with the rest of my generation. (I was 10 when it came out in 1988, so I […]

Gen. X Movies: Aging like Fine Wine or Crystal Pepsi?

Now here’s a category where my Gen. Y status will undoubtedly help rather than hinder–having seen none of these movies when they first came out, I can determine (subjectively, of course) whether these classics have held up well with age or deflated like so many high, scrunchy-wrapped ponytails.

Lunchtime Poll: 12/21

I love dates that are also palindromes.   I am a giant geek. How’s Tuesday treating you? Well, I hope.   Before I get to pollin’, I’d like to introduce our two brand new interns, Moderator Bee and Moderator Stephanie.  Both are over achieving college students we’re collectively sure will run the world one day.

Lunchtime Poll “” Be JJ Abrams Day

It’s that time again, and one of these days I’m totally going Heathers on your asses and asking about what you’d do if you won a million dollars the day before the end of the world. Today, however, is not that day.

Growing up X: From Heathers to Reality Bites

As a teenager in the late eighties, Winona Ryder was my hero.   An article in either Bop! or Tiger Beat once misidentified her birthday as the same as mine, so in my vapid teenage way I felt, you know, really connected to her.  I’m not sure if it was Dracula or finding out we were […]

The Sun is Up, the Sky is Blue

It’s beautiful, and so are you, dear readers.  Happy Wednesday morning! It’s National Bring A Teddy Bear to Work Day.  No, I’m not kidding.  We won’t judge you for bringing something fuzzy and full of stuffing to the office.  We’ve worked in the corporate world, having a teddy bear to snuggle while going into the […]
