Did anyone else collect milk ads in middle school? My friends and I were obsessed. #wisconsinkids
This one would’ve been my crown jewel.

The video below has everything:
I spent pretty much every Saturday in 7th grade attending Bar/Bat Mitzvahs but none of them had kickass homemade music videos. You win at everything Zachary Freiman.
Mazel Tov, kid.
This morning, I purchased this beauty:
This noir-inspired work of genius comes courtesy of Mike Mitchell (you can also find him on twitter @sirmitchell). He did the piece for the Parks & Rec panel at Paley Fest. The poster is a limited edition so if you’re at all interested in purchasing one, I’d do it sooner than later.
If TV’s funniest comedy isn’t your style, Gallery 1988 also has a few other gorgeous pieces of boob-tube inspired art. Check out a few of them below.
You can purchase any of these for me. My birthday is in August. I promise to act surprised.
Even though she’s a gifted actress,
and even though she’ll probably net a few noms from this picture,
and even though she looks great in business casual clothes,
I don’t want her to do it. Not her, not anybody with actual talent. There are better stories, there are better roles, there are people more worthy of this budget, of our attention.
Let’s stop celebrating mediocrity for awhile.
It’s no secret that I jones hard for Pretty Little Liars. It doesn’t matter that I’ll be turning 24 this year or that PLL is an ABC Family (ugh) hit show. No sir. I defy conventions. Or rather, fall into them? Whatever. I like it and that’s that.
This week’s episode was especially superb. There are genuine reasons I love the show. And then, there are some less than genuine reasons, too. Tonight was all sorts of insincere.
Let me start by highlighting what worked for me that really shouldn’t have. 1) Hanna slapped a blind girl, then dissed her blindness. 2) The conflict with Aria and HER TEACHER remains to be how sad it is they must hide their love and NOT THE FACT THAT SHE BARELY HAS A LICENSE AND HE’S BEEN THROUGH COLLEGE. 3) Ian the likely murderer and deatheater-to-all-of-Spencer’s-happiness had a really stellar Got Milk? moment.
Now the things that worked and should work. 1) Emily’s still gay and getting play #doublewin. 2)Having realized Alison sucks, the girls are refocusing their emotions toward each other/ actual friendship. 3)the kid who needs a haircut left, putting an end, hopefully, to the awkwardly-addressed “foster child” situation.
This show is good because it has its’ moments.
Obviously, it’s silly. In fact, I often find myself uncontrollably snorting through lengthy segments of teen angst. But, it also has moments of importance. It’s a show about girls and their lives. I can count on one hand how many others shows exist on-air today sharing that same agenda.
Furthermore, the characters have a singular focus that addresses a social issue. They’re brought together by the murder plot line, but it oft breaches subplot status in comparison to their personal struggles. Each girl has her one story and it gets time and attention. This is big when the story is about a lesbian or about a girl suffering from an eating disorder or about an overachiever struggling for parental attention. The issues are as real as the sizable age differences between the actresses IRL and their characters.
So tune in you h8rs… Monday Night aka Teen Angst Night (see: PLL, Gossip Girl and Skins).
PS if you watched tonights episode (3/8/11) then you also noticed Spencer playing the role of Le Petit Prince, Hanna auditioning for Hocus Pocus and Emily officially going butch. #wardrobemalfunctions
