Film of the Day: Teen

Empire Records (1995)

Friday's Fable

Cherub Rock

Nostalgia Wave

THE '90S

Watching Re-runs of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch & Felicity.
Listening to Collective Soul, Live & Smashing Pumpkins.
The 90s were great.

Sabrina had a good run of celebrity guest stars on the show.
Some of these include: Britney Spears, Raquel Welch, Nicole Scherzinger (in then band Eden's Crush), Paula Abdul, Drew Carey, Penn & Teller (as recurring guest stars in the 1st series), Davy Jones from The Monkees, Daniel Bedingfield, Sally Jessie Raphael, Andy Roddick, Donald Faison, Brian Austin Green, Eddie Cibrian, Kenan & Kel, Carson Daly & Randy Travis.

There was also a lot of sports stars but I'm none too familiar with American sports names so I couldn't possibly say how high their level of fame is.

Whilst I've named a few musicians already, some other big names are:
Avril Lavigne
Sixpence non the Richer
Goo Goo Dolls

Also enjoy an early appearance of Ryan Reynolds in 1996 film Sabrina, the Teenage Witch film.

Mildly interesting Sabrina trivia: The actor who played her father (Robby Benson) is the voice of the Beast in Beauty & the Beast.

Stuck in the Head

When a song gets stuck in your head & you don't quite know how it got there.

Film of the Day: Classic

The Opposite Sex (1956)

June Allyson, Joan Collins, Leslie Nielsen, Dolores Gray, Agnes Moorehead. Although not considered particularly great at the time, I think it's started to gain more credibility, perhaps mainly due to nostalgia.

Not as good, however, as the original film adaptation, The Women (1939), with Joan Crawford, which featured an all-female cast, so much so that even all but a few props were also female, including animals.

Actress of the Day: ICON

June Allyson
October 7, 1917 - July 8th, 2006

A phenomenal actress, she will always be my 'Jo' from Little Women.
