There were many things we took for granted as kids that cause us to look back on our carefree lives and think “I wish I… READ MORE »

Now in most ways, I am thrilled to see the ’90s come back. I loved that, last year, both The Pixies and Pavement were on tour. I’m excited about rewatching both “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Hey Dude.” I watch the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” on SoapNet most afternoons, and get secretly excited… READ MORE »

Most of us recall the vague sense of pain accompanied by pining for a man who would never know we exist. Luckily, many of our crushes of yore seem much less intimidating now.

I was already convinced that the coolest of girls had red hair, thanks to Pippi Longstocking.

Listen, Gap, I know you’re calling this a “denim romper” to try to make it seem trendy and fresh, but the truth is, I had the exact same piece of clothing in 4th grade, and back then we called it by its rightful name: “shortalls,” aka jean short overalls.

Growing up, The Magic Schoolbus was one of my favorite series of books and TV shows. While my school’s budget was slashed to the point where our class field trips consisted of walking outside and looking for bugs in parking lot mud puddles, Ms. Frizzle was using her magic schoolbus to launch her class into… READ MORE »

Raise your hand if your armpits used to smell like Teen Spirit! My scent was Romantic Rose. As a grown woman, I am wondering how they specifically made deodorant just for teens’ bodies? What a pile of crap. We totally bought into the advertising scam. But we smelled great while doing so. [I’m Remembering] … READ MORE »

I am not the world’s biggest Good Charlotte fan. But, man, am I loving this video for their song “Last Night” because “Double Dare” was so awesome!

Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start… READ MORE »
