Why Everything You Believe About The ’90s Is Wrong

Why Everything You Believe About The '90s Is Wrong

Whoomp there it is. There what is? My bad. Chill, home slice, because I am going to explain the situation — the ’90s were da bomb! Booya! Not.

If you were actually born in the ’90s, you don’t really remember the ’90s. Sorry. If it’s any consolation, I am closer to death than you are, because I am old. That said, you’re still wrong about the ’90s. Here are a few reasons why. Read more on Cracked…

Surge Is Making A Comeback And The World Is Strangely Enthusiastic About It

Surge

The good people at Coca-Cola are bringing Surge back into our lives because the internet made them. Get excited, I guess? The citrus-y 90′s soda, which was sold from 1997-2003, was marketed as a soda or a pseudo-energy drink depending on the day. It was kind of like a poseur version of Mountain Dew but “loaded with carbos” (whatever that means), and was apparently beloved enough to spark a Facebook campaign to bring it back. The Facebook page “SURGE Movement” revealed that the drink has a major cult following, and reps from the movement even flew to Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta to talk with the company. Surge’s revival will be facilitated through Amazon, and for $14, you’ll be able to have yourself a dozen cans of prepackaged 90′s nostalgia. I don’t remember much about what Surge tasted like, but if it’s deliciously sugar-filled enough to inspire all this, I wouldn’t exactly be opposed to trying some for old times’ sake. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about ordering a beverage through Amazon, though. If you’re still drawing a blank on what the hell this drink even is, allow me to jog your memory with this 90′s-tastic commercial: Keep reading »

Rejoice! The First “Girl Meets World” Trailer Is Here!

Girl Meets World Trailer
Cory & Topanga Are Parents!

Ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod, after months of anticipation and Instagram photos from the set that made me blubber like a baby at my desk, we finally have the first official preview of “Girl Meets World.” And it’s really good. I mean, it’s good in a corny kids’ show way, but still really good. E! Online released an exclusive sneak peek at the trailer today, which features Rowan Blanchard’s debut as mischievous Riley (AKA The Girl Who Meets World), and lets us see Cory and Topanga in action as her savvy, loving parents. More good news on the GMW front: Ryder Strong (Shawn), William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), and Lee Norris (MINKUS!!!!) are all set to make cameos in the first season. Uh oh, I’m crying again. [E! Online]

Oh My God: Samuel L. Jackson Performs A Slam Poem About “Boy Meets World”

Samuel L. Jackson Performs "Boy Meets World" Slam Poem
Topanga. Topanga. Topanga.

It’s a great day when you wake up and see the words “Samuel L. Jackson performs a slam poem about ‘Boy Meets World’” trending on your social media sites, click on it, and realize it’s not some cruel April Fool’s Joke. This spoken word ode to everyone’s favorite ’90s sitcom, facilitated by Jimmy Fallon, is as real as it fucking gets. Samuel L. Jackson’s delivery is flawless, and the last few lines legit gave me goosebumps. We love you too, Mr. Feeny. Class dismissed. [YouTube]

Be Still, My ’90s Fangirl Heart: Backstreet Boys Announce North American Tour With Avril Lavigne

Backstreet Boys Announce Tour With Avril Lavigne

Any day that the Backstreet Boys announce a new tour is a great day, but when they announce a North American tour to support one of their best albums ever, with Avril fucking Lavigne as a special guest, well, today just became the best day of my life. As awesome as the Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block tour was, my inner child (who is actually my inner teen, forever trapped in 1998, listening to “Complicated” on repeat, wishing she could fit into L.E.I. flare jeans) is way more stoked about this one. Tickets go on sale March 21st, and the tour kicks off in Canada on May 3rd, with the first American stop in Seattle on May 22nd. So far I’m not seeing any dates in Nashville, which is severely disappointing, but I guess that means a road trip to Chicago is in order. Check out the list of US tour dates after the jump!

Remember That Time Melissa Joan Hart Snuck Britney Spears Into A Club And Left Her There?

Melissa Joan Hart Britney Spears Underage Club

“[Britney] was young and I could see the stress on her face. I was like, ‘Do you want to go to lunch?’ and she was like, ‘Yes, yes. Let’s go to lunch,’ and then someone behind her would go, ‘No, no, no. You have interviews you have to go to vocal coaching, you have to go to the gym and then you have to go on your tour.’ And she was like, ‘Okay, maybe later.’ And I was like, ‘Let’s go to dinner tonight.’

So I went to her hotel and I invited her to come out with me and we went to a club. She was underage so I snuck her in the back door and we did a little dancing and then people sort of swarmed on top of her and then she got stuck at a table hanging out with people, chit chatting and I was like, ‘I’ve got to go to work tomorrow can I go?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, go I am good. They will get me home.’”

– Melissa Joan Hart, AKA Clarissa Darling and Sabrina Spellman, who is currently on a media blitz to promote her new memoir, Melissa Explains It All, shared this slightly disturbing little anecdote on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show this week. Hart, now 37, is 6 years older than Spears and apparently the two became pretty close friends in the mid 90s (although hello, Girl Code clearly states that you should never leave your underage friend with random people at a nightclub). MJH also revealed that she once made out with Nick Carter in a hotel room, and that she never found James Van Der Beek attractive. So there you go. [Daily Mail]
