In which my dream to do a group Heathers-themed Halloween costume is validated, Anaïs Nin continues to fascinate, and people have feelings about leggings. Plus much more!
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, […]
Happy Friday, Persephoneers!
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.
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 […]
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 […]
“There’s more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking.” Like being able to use movie quotes to properly express yourself! Today’s LTP: what quotes from movies or TV shows do you use on a regular basis?

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.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
