In 2001, American grunge punk band L7 went on an indefinite hiatus. That hiatus is on its way to a close. That’s right, folks, On December 10th L7 took to their Facebook fan page to announce this:
ATTENTION! A personal message from the band:
Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we had been sifting through for an upcoming L7 documentary has turned into a wellspring of enthusiasm for the band. Read More

My inner 5-year-old is screaming. The Powerpuff Girls is coming back to TV in 2016! This is no joke. This is not a drill.
Yesterday, Cartoon Network confirmed that the Emmy award-winning show will be rebooted soon, bringing back one of the network’s top grossing shows of all time. This continues the trend of resurrecting many 90s classics for new audiences - Sailor Moon, Reading Rainbow, Girl Meets World, etc.
Pete Yoder of Cartoon Network has described Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup as “the original ambassadors of girl power. Read More

Baddiewinkle’s Instagram captures all of the social media lingo, poses, trends, and hashtags so well that it sometimes seems like satire. This sassy lady promises to “steal your man” and even strives to be on the Ellen show while posting psychedelic selfies and twerking.
It’s almost as thought she went through a teen girl’s Instagram and duplicated her wardrobe, poses, and captions.
Exhibit A: Baddiewinkle reppin a peace sign and a shirt that says "90’s child" with the caption: “sup. Read More

It does not surprise me that Jon Hamm sported a wispy middle part in the 90's, considering that it was the most popular haircut of the decade. However, because Hamm didn't reach the peak of his stardom until more than a decade later, as the part of debonair Don Draper on the show Mad Men, his hairdo has made viral waves after a video clip of his appearance on dating show, The Big Date, was exposed yesterday.

Like a fanzine come to life, "The Punk Singer," directed by Sini Anderson, is a tender and totally absorbing documentary portrait of Kathleen Hanna—beloved riot grrrl frontwoman of the bands Bikini Kill, The Julie Ruin and Le Tigre.
The film is brimming with expertly edited archival footage and behind-the-scenes glimpses of Hanna’s private life. Viewers not only get to watch her find her voice in the feminist art-punk scene of the early ’90s, but also bear witness to how she dealt with the misogynist backlash that ensued. Read More

Earlier this year, we talked about why the Left Eye is the shit: she advocated safe sex, she burned down her abusive boyfriend’s house, and she did charity work with children in underdeveloped communities.
Long live the '90s.
That’s why we’re psyched that VH1’s Mixtape Festival will be presenting TLC on stage as a trio once again. We hear that Left Eye will be appearing on stage - as a digital projection made of archival footage. Awesome, and awesome.
The late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. Read More

I honestly think The Baby-Sitters Club movie is one of the greatest films of all time. You may laugh, but consider the following points:
The soundtrack (which I own and listen to regularly) is brilliant. The fact that there are people out there who haven’t heard Girl (Girlfriend) kinda breaks my heart.
The “villain” of the film is named Cokie Mason, which is just the right level of ridiculous to be perfect.
The scene (spoiler alert, probably?) in which Kristy’s dad doesn’t show up to the carnival still makes me cry to this day. And not in an ironic way, either. Read More
