True fax: My first boyfriend (whom I shall protect from the Googles in this tale) while in middle school in 1991 chose his college, his major, and his eventual career path based on the lyrics of Marky Mark’s Wildside.
Do you know who that is?
You make me want to weep sometimes.
Why, who is it?
Blossom. Of TV's Blossom.
Silence. (Jenna von OŸ, I'm so old.)
Adele, age 9.
Hi-tops flawless. (There are more. You know you want more.)
It’s a hacking double feature. War Games and Live Free or Die Hard. It’s part of The Net 101 curriculum.
Verdict so far? Ally Sheedy is no Tish.
“I watched a very provocative film last night about internet safety. It was called The Net.”
Because if you’ve only sat still for two films this year (The Great Justin Bieber Film Never Say Never ((HEY. John Waters liked it too)) and the Russell Brand Arthur, a historical 15th Anniversary viewing with a technology anthropologist is… well, it happened.

It’s like staring at two eras, destined for extinction but not yet. One clinging for life, leashing itself to a seemingly more viable host, hoping to hang on for just a little while longer.

Right: Exactly twice as old, just in a different costume, one that I will be wearing a week from today at the promotion board. Hence, part of the swamped.
Somehow side-by-side it’s like a photographic pitch for an updated Major Dad, one with a rebellious daughter in an 80s throwback band. That, or there’s really no good explanation.
Hoot at will.
Stop. Hammer time.
A very hard song to karaoke. Very hard.
Oh HECK yes. This could be the most important quiz you’ll take all day.
Election, Cruel Intentions, or Clueless? Reigning. Champion.
If I’ve only seen five movies and three of them are Home Alone, if I’ve only seen ten — eight of them are in this quiz. Oh yeah, PLUS the director commentary. Scholar, this kid.

In fact, let’s have a screening at my apartment. You can see Newsies for the “first time.” I’ll wear my Urban Outfitters newsboy cap and we’ll use my work computer to print out fake “newspapers” we made in Microsoft Office with a photo of you and an announcement of your change of heart.
Open the gates and seize the day…
