This Friday is a big day for early-’90s nostalgia buffs, “Full House” fans, and John Stamos fangirls (and fanboys!), because Uncle Jesse’s fictional band, Jesse and the Rippers, is making a comeback.

It was soon confirmed that the band would be appearing on Friday’s episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” No word yet on whether they will be accompanied by Bob Saget and/or an Olsen Twin, but hey, we can dream.

Would we wear it now? Who says I’m not wearing one as I write this…
When I was 13, I didn’t have the option of purchasing my Units separates on Ebay or getting the new Red Hot Chili Peppers cassette tape on iTunes or finding a way to live stream the latest NC-17 film on my laptop. If I wanted a lava lamp or a new glamour shot or an Orange Julius, I had to convince one of my parents (or one of my friends’ parents) to drop me off at the damn mall for the day. It was an event which required strategic planning and ingenuity. And one that I was concerned that young people today might miss out on. Keep reading »
Who doesn’t love summoning up memories of those hideous, yet magnificent trends from our freckle-faced youth? Every week, we’ll muse over a fashion item that our former selves eagerly donned in order to sit with the cool kids at lunch. There’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia every now and then, right?
What it is: Power beads. the colored bracelets that determined who you were.
