As if! Clueless turns 20 today!

Hello?! Today is the 20th anniversary of one of the most important, iconic, and quotable movies ever! So, OK, I'm, like, totally buggin'!!


Not to sound like some pretentious hipster or anything, but I've been a fan of Clueless waaay before Tumblr began revisiting it some 3 years ago. I was 5 when the movie was released, but it wasn't until I was probably 8 or 9 that I became totally obsessed with it. Back then, Cher Horowitz was my ultimate role model. I kept hoping someone would refer to me as the most beautiful girl in Beverly Hills—even though I didn't live in Beverly Hills. I would often try to incorporate quotes from the movie into everyday conversations (so that's where my pop-culture obsession began). Oh, I just loved to describe people as "full-on Monets."


Long before wanting a friendship like that of Gossip Girl's Blair and Serena, I aspired to have a friendship like Cher and Dionne's, so we could be the most popular girls in school and talk on our phones in the hallways.



Ugh, I would've killed to go to a party in Sun Valley. Putting on an Alaïa dress, playing suck and blow (yes, I realize now how dirty that sounded), sparking up a doobie to "Rollin' with My Homies," and of course, calling your nemesis out for wearing the same outfit you wore the day before. Do you prefer "fashion victim" or "ensemble-y challenged"?


Seriously, who wouldn't want Cher's outfit-generating computer program?? I know I did. Still do, to be honest. So ahead of its time.


Speaking of, don't even get me started on Cher's fabulous outfits! At least I wouldn't skin a collie to make my backpack.



I've also experienced some very similar struggles and insecurities as Cher. And I bet you have, too.




In conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty?

Let's all celebrate this cinematic masterpiece. May its legacy live on and never be forgotten.



Also, RIP Brittany Murphy. I'm still not over her death. :(

    1. I miss her too! She was such a babe in the '90s (still is). She looked hot in Batman & Robin, it's my second favorite Batman movie after Batman Returns - I regret nothing.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
