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.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"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.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
