The past several weeks have left me meandering down memory lane. I'm in the throes of an exciting new project which I will not talk about here (yet) but it involves some very nostalgic references, research, rehashing...
I grew up in the 90's. I came of age in cut-0ff shorts with the pockets showing and men's flannel shirts down to my knees. My-So-Called life was my show. My life. Angela's character was a year older than I was. Going through the same shit. Blah blah. Teen angst. Blah blah.
I own the box set and still watch it waaaaay more than I probably should. And now that the new box set is about to be released, you can bet I'll be all up in that bitch as well.
Tonight, while working on said-questionably secret project, I ran into the clip that "changed my life" or so it seemed at the time. Buffalo Tom quickly shot to the top of my favorite-bands-ever list and I'd sit in front of my parent's TV with my cassette taped (favorite) episode (Angela and Jordan in the Broiler Room. Remember this scene? Sigh...) and rewind so I could watch over and over as Jordan Catalano finally publicly acknowledged his relationship with Angela Chase and I hoped-- No-- PRAYED that my Jordan (his name was B.Jay and he enjoyed making out with me in his garage and ignoring me in the halls. Harsh) would come around and hold my hand, too.
Anyway, here is the clip that launched a thousand rewinds:
Speaking of nostalgia-- for all you children of the 80's, my friend Matthew Robinson published a brand new book about 80's toys/nostalgia called Just Can't Get Enough a la Depeche Mode. You can order on Amazon, here.
And if you have some awesome nostalgic clips to share, from 80's, 90's or beyond, feel free to link me up in the comments or wherever. I'm in the mood to take a trip down memory lane. That's kind of been my thing lately.
