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. Man, I miss Alicia Silverstone. She was hot. Probably still is.

    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.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
