1993 Time Machine: An Ode To Evan Dando And Juliana Hatfield

In honor of my tickets to see Juliana Hatfield and Evan Dando in concert TOGETHER ... TONIGHT, I thought we could take a stroll down my memory lane, circa 1993. All I have to do is hear any song from Become What You Are by the Juliana Hatfield Three, especially "Spin the Bottle," which wa…

Florence + The Machine Get “Addicted To Love”

Florence + the Machine's cover of "Addicted to Love" has been a regular on, oh, pretty much every mix CD I've made in the past six months. Something about Florence Welch's voice just turns this classic '80s track inside out. And then today, PopWrap posted a photo showing Florence in front of the…

“The Breakfast Club” Turns 25

The cast of "The Breakfast Club," minus Emilio Estevez and John Hughes (who died recently), got together on Monday night for a screening to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary. Ally Sheedy even brought her 16-year-old daughter to watch it with her. Wait. Has it really been 25 years since "The Breakfast Club" came out?

R.I.P. The ’90s, We Miss You … Kind Of

I'll take 94 seconds of the '90s if that's all I can get. I can't believe I'm feeling even the littlest bit of nostalgia for the decade of my teen years. But let's be honest, I'm kind of glad it's over. It certainly is a bittersweet symphony, this life. [BuzzFeed]…

I’m Never Gonna Give You Up, Rick Astley

Guess who has a new single out after 17 years? My favorite trench coat-wearing, Ray-Ban-rocking, '80s crooner—Rick Astley. Check out his new single, "Lights Out," after the jump. He wasn't lying when he said he would never desert me. Well, I won't desert him either. xo Rick. [BuzzFeed]…

Tavi Delivers The Goods: Vintage Sassy Porn

Yeah, yeah, yeah—so apparently Tavi's blog got shut down for a hot second yesterday after she posted some racy fashion pics. She was back up and running in no time with an apology from Google explaining that she had triggered automatic filters. Nevertheless, the internets freaked out over the scandal. As for us, the…

Are We Too Nostalgic?

This week, New York Times writer David Browne argued that Generation Y is all about nostalgia—and that we develop sentimental feelings about things at a much more rapid pace than Baby Boomers. I fully admit that even at the young age of 21, I feel nostalgic for my childhood all the time. And…

Makeup: What’s With the Kid Stuff?

Most little girls (and even some boys!) have a moment where they play in mom's makeup, pretending to be a grown-up woman. But is the reverse true as well: do grown women like to play in makeup that looks to be for little girls? Barbie for Stila, featuring makeup mimicking Barbie's looks over…

10 Favorite Dolls From Our Childhood

I was kind of obsessed with Barbie dolls when I was younger. Although I had over 50 Barbies, my mom knew we couldn't leave a toy store without visiting the Barbie aisle. I didn't get a new doll most of the time, but sometimes she would buy me a new Barbie outfit, which is just…
