There are a great many losses we experience over our lifetimes. We can lose out on small things in our lives and just completely come undone. I once lost my favourite coral, MAC lip moisturizer, and shed many a tear. A waste of salty sobs? Probably.
But there’s one thing in this world, that may not seem like a big deal, but I never quite recover from: The loss of a favourite television show.

There were lots of Bests last night (some more deserving than others), but I have my own list of superlatives going from the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Continue reading

Tonight is one of my favourite nights of the year, OSCAR NIGHT!!! I’ve always been completely enthralled by the whole thing. I can remember being allowed to stay up semi-late to watch the Awards with my parents, and then having to record what I missed once I went to bed. I would brush my teeth and rehearse in my head what my acceptance speech would one day be.
Although they have kind of lost some credibility in my mind over the years (Sandra Bullock Best Actress for The Blind Side, really Academy? Really!?), my enchantment with the Oscars has never wavered.

However, in high school the Family Channel aired re-runs late at night, and I instantly became hooked. There are countless reasons why I enjoyed the show, many of which having to do with Jared Leto’s character, Jordan Catalano (Jordan Catalano’s choker, Jordan Catalano’s hair, Jordan Catalano’s wall-leaning skills, Jordan Catalano’s dyslexia…), but also the cast’s wardrobe was pretty rad.
Claire Danes skulked around in loose fitted, burgundy babydoll tees, with plaid shirts tied around the waist, and her bestie, Rayanne Graff, was always sporting interesting getups that involved denim, daisies, macramé, and braids. The show acted as a time capsule of the 90’s, and with it the Seattle sound sub-genre. Continue reading
