Currently watching “Slacker” to see if I recognize any of the filming locations from my Austin trip. My Very Productive Saturday is off to a great start.

Oh also, Austin = heaven.


For a certain type of girl wending her way through adolescence in the mid 1990s, the bible was a paperback novel with a hot pink spine. It was Blake Nelson’s debut and it was called, aptly, Girl. The cover bore a blurry black-and-white portrait of a girl in motion: in peasant blouse and pendant, she was flipping her dark hair over her shoulder in something between a head-bang and a shrug.

I’d like to name Bee Girl my spirit animal of the day because she was brave, beautiful and just didn’t give a fuck. Also because I’ve always wanted to learn how to tap dance.
I know it’s all about the Swan right now (Black Swan, that is), but I have a feeling bee tutus are going to have a big moment in the Oh-Leven.

This is obviously the greatest thing ever televised. A 1989 Sarah Michelle Gellar and Soleil Moon Frye host “Girl Talk.”

I think the one thing I’m more jealous of than having the name ‘Soleil Moon Frye’ is that business casual “Working Girl” meets “Annie Hall” fashion ensemble she’s working. Cut it out, Moon Frye.


This just in: Lily Kane read Sassy magazine. I had to be kind rewind my Netflix instant play to make sure I wasn’t hearing things.
From season 1, ep. 2: Credit Where Credit’s Due:
"Veronica, I suffer from too much pep. I needed a pep outlet. Plus Sassy says girls who join the clubs really get the fellas.” 
The question is not who killed Lily Kane, but who was supplying her with Sassy magazines in 2004? Probably eBay but we can’t be sure.

90s crush for your consideration: literally everyone in this video. I submit to you now the most important 90s video in existence:  Bree Sharp’s “David Duchovny,” which would’ve been the greatest fan made compilation video ever except for the fact that it was a REAL SONG paired with an unnofficial video with appearances by Janeane Garofalo (!!!), Ally McBeal, Rosie O, the Lone Gunmen, Melissa Etheridge, Brad Pitt, love of my life Charles Nelson Reilly and the Duchovs himself, among many others. Since I know no one else will say it, this makes my 7th grade X-Files fanfiction look WEAK. And that stuff was pretty solid.

It could be the fact that I just watched all of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” for the first time ever (I know, I KNOW) and I’m still fragile and considering suing Joss Whedon for emotional damage but the best 90s crush appearance in this has to be Sarah Michelle Gellar just hanging out in Giles’ library paying tribute to her fellow supernatural crime fighter. Can you feel it? The girl-90s just exploded and 10 zillion Lisa Frank dolphins and Dawson Leerys shot through the sky and blessed everyone with The Rachel supercut. I am crying! Love ya, SMG.

post scripties: You can now buy the studio version (as opposed to just the live version) on iTunes. Oh hi, BEST DAY EVER.


Just a quick reminder that there was a time in history when folks slam danced to “Dreams” by The Cranberries.

P.S. How beautiful is Dolores O’Riordan? Fashion inspiration.

P.P.S. Remember when this song was used during the My So-Called Life sex talk?


90s crush for your consideration: Big Pete Wrigley
Points:
1. Not afraid of romantic gestures
2. Strong ties to family, especially his younger brother Pete (bonus: his mom has a metal plate in her head and Debbie Harry is his neighbor)
3. A poetic soul who once said “If 1 is the loneliest number, then x + 1 over the circumference of a full moon = the square root of eternity. Us eating doughnuts together, beneath a willow tree”
4. refuses to cheat on history test, gets honorable C+
5. often seen talking to a camera like a more introspective Zack Morris, he shows that he’s not afraid to be vulnerable

Kids Launch The Darndest Magazines of the Day: So apparently precocious style rookie Tavi Gevinson (who, you may enjoy being reminded, is only 14 years old) is starting a magazine with Jane Pratt, the founding editor of defunct cult teen magazine Sassy.
“Of course, it won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be,” Gevinson writes on her blog. “For one, you can’t try to recreate something that good. For another, while I can read old issues of Sassy and relate, the world has changed a bit in the past 15 or so years, and that whole Internet thing happened, and this world calls for something different.”
Not-Sassy will have a “‘for the people, by the people’ kinda vibe,” Gevinson elaborates. “We want to find the best possible group of people for this project, and a wide range of ages, styles, etc.” That means you! Submission-resumes are currently being received through November 19th at MagazineSubmissionsAreFun@gmail.com.
“Exciting, right?”
[tsr.]

 I thought I would help spread the word about this wonderfulness!

Weeeeeeeeeee.

Um, wait. What? 
brb, writing my heart out.
Tavi, are you the one seeing all the submissions? Please don’t make fun of me on Tumblr once you’ve seen my piece and know all my secrets.
**retracts the drawbridge of my emotional intimacy**
**inspects moat for trespassers**

Ah! No judging here! And yes, I will be reading all the submissions.

Me right now:





 I can’t even tell you how excited I am. THIS IS AMAZING. Get it grrrl.
