I am in love with this ensemble. I get an eighties prime-time soap vibe from it, even though it’s not sparkly with giant shoulder pads.

Rilo Kiley-Portions for Foxes

I <3 RK. I’m still sad that they broke up last summer. 

I’ve been saying that if I meet a Johnny Castle that looks like Matt Bomer or Joe Manganiello this weekend, I’d be so happy. However, if I meet a Johnny Castle with NPH’s face, that may be the coolest thing ever…

Andre3000—Hey Ya!

I remember thinking this was my high school’s unofficial class song for the class of 2004—it was played at EVERY event in 2003-04, and we all knew the dance and it was mad fun. 

This is what I’m listening to right now. I kinda wish I had, oh, I don’t know, lived in the district where I went to high school so I could have gone out more. My wild teenage rebellion didn’t happen until I was a sophomore in college. whomp whomp. 

I love Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton’s solo stuff. It’s so groovy. This video is groovy baby, shagadellic. 

Speaking of drunk lip-synching, here it is! 

I quote this more often than I should. Whenever I hear the words “sexy” “tuba” or “Billy Joel,” this is where my mind goes. I miss fat Seth Rogen.

I have been coveting these shoes since I first saw Carrie wear them in the sixth season SatC episode, &#8220;A Woman&#8217;s Right to Shoes.&#8221; I remember seeing the Steve Madden knockoff right around my senior prom, but alas, they didn&#8217;t match my dress. Cut to last summer, my friend finds the knockoffs at Marshalls while we&#8217;re looking for shoes to wear at a wedding. They don&#8217;t fit her, but they fit me and match my dress. Alas, my happiness was short lived as the wedding wrecked my shoes. I&#8217;ve been sad ever since, I saw that Manolo Blahnik still makes the &#8220;Carrie&#8221; version, and I was so psyched until I saw that they were $715. Boooooooooooo. A girl can still dream&#8230;

She also threw in this Kids Meal toy from 2001. I think Apu is too cute!

Oh my goodness. This is one of the cutest things I’ve seen on TV in a while. I love Weird Al. I want him and Pee-wee to collaborate on something together. <3 

Happy fifty-third birthday, Barbie! You look fantastic ;)

Speaking of Nick Lachey, anybody remember Jessica Simpson from that period between “I Wanna Love You Forever” and Newlyweds? Fun fact: because of this video, whenever I see someone trying to dance by just moving their arms and tossing in a few body rolls, I call it the “Jessica Simpson arm dance.”
