Every year we say the same thing, “Nope, not spending money on a Halloween costume, just going to stay in, not a chance, harrumph, bah humbug” and all that. And every year, we inevitably end up at some Halloween party, looking like the one asshole who’s too cheap or too morose to wear a damn costume. So, this year, we’re cutting that off at the pass (and helping you out, if you’re anything like us) with ideas for 25 last minute homemade Halloween costumes, all assembled from stuff you probably have in your closet. You don’t even need a very interesting closet, either. More
I know we’re often apt to say Katy Perry resembles a bit of a woman-child with her cupcake bras, but I can’t fail to respect her nail art, here: More
What with all the nostalgia surrounding the rerelease of Titanic, Gloss EIC Jennifer Wright decided to revisit another cornerstone of her teen years: Daria. Unfortunately, the experience of watching now wasn’t quite how she remembered. Here, she and Deputy editor Ashley Cardiff discuss teen angst, Holden Caulfield and how the things you liked as a teenager were dumb. More
MTV is bringing Beavis and Butthead back, which I have never watched, but which still led me to moan to one of my friends “that’s so dumb. Why can’t they bring Daaaarrriiaa back?” I said it with this great nasal whine, as if I were a pre-teen again. Apparently, I am not the only one who feels that way, though hopefully the other fans of the show don’t moan about it in the Fran Drescher style as I did. It was cuter when I was 12.
Which is why they can’t bring Daria back. Because I’m not a pre-teen anymore, and neither are you. More
I don’t remember why I joined the prom committee. Maybe it was ironic. Possibly I was just trying to star in my own private episode of Daria. More
Jane Lane, a painter with bone dry wit and BFF to Daria Morgendorffer, has certainly been done as a style inspiration. Furthermore, we are certainly not above doing stuff that’s already been done. Lastly, Jane Lane is awesome. She’s pretty much the cool, deadpan friend in high school a lot of girls dreamed of having. She also has excellent style. And so… More
I got my first pair of Dr. Martens in sixth grade when I went as grunge-era Courtney Love for Halloween and, once the trick-or-treating was over, I never really took them off. They’ve served me well at rock shows and on rainy days, they add urban warrior cool to stovepipes and look amazing with pretty, feminine dresses. More
People aren’t watching Logo enough. They have Buffy episodes on there. They have The Robert Verdi Show. They have Daria. Screw “critically acclaimed” shows like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Logo knows what you need. And now, they have The A-List, which is set to premiere October 4th. More
You know what I remember from being young? Watching Daria 700 times and owning a pair of black Dr. Martens that were supposed to make me look like her. You know, like someone who read George Orwell’s lesser works inside … More
No….seriously…why….? I don’t understand this random use of the ellipsis that seems to be cropping up in every message I get. Ellipses are great. Really. I just don’t understand why people keep inserting them in the places of periods. As … More
Last week, we compiled a list of Disney Princes we didn’t particularly want to date (because some of them are lions). However, that’s not an indictment of all male cartoon characters. Here are some we’d totally date were they human.
Daria is out on DVD today! This means that kids will be able to appreciate the best television show MTV ever produced, if they weren’t already illegally downloading it off the Internet. We learnt a lot from that show. Aside … More
Tomorrow, May 12, is a day that I have been dreaming of since girlhood. Daria, my age-14-to-17-or-so life icon, style role model, and imaginary best friend, is having the entirety of her animated series put into one magical DVD collection. … More
