Is It Fall Yet?

Let me apologize for not having your daily dose of 90s in order per usual this morning. You see, in some sort of unforeseen* meteorological turn of events, my internet connection experienced some severe disturbances during peak blogging time. After my ever-helpful boyfriend spent extensive time proxy online live-chatting with the none-so-helpful Alvaro of Time Warner Cable, it was clear that you were just not going to get the incredibly outstanding post I'd originally planned on researching for lack of sufficient connectivity.

That is to say, I was this close to promising to name my firstborn Alvaro if only he would have reinstated my beloved interweb. Unfortunately, Alvaro did no such thing in saving me from certain cable outage. I was forced to shake my fist despairingly heavenward and intone "ALVARO!" Alvin and the Chipmunks style. My boyfriend (again, very helpfully) proceeded to play me the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas song over the phone while I waited for the reports back on Alvaro's snail-like progress, but that's really here nor there.

Where was I? Oh yes, excuses. So, that fabulously insightful post will have to wait, and I will leave you will a solid dose of 90s to get you through your weekend. This was what I'd brilliantly thought to post on Labor Day, only to spend the whole day being neglectful and vacation-prone and sending myself into successive barbecue food comas. Hence, you lucky so-and-sos get a shot at it today. I know, I know. You're welcome.

Via the magic of embeddable playlists, here is the full Daria inter-season movie Is It Fall Yet**? It seems very appropriate as we bid our summers adieu, plus it's one of my favorites here at Children of the 90s. Ask anyone who's been reading a few months and they'll assure you that it's in my secret plan to faithfully spread the gospel of Daria to all those who know not her truth and wisdom. Let me speak to you seriously here for a moment: it's one of the smartest shows to ever air, period, not to mention the most sage teen or cartoon series. Please, proceed with caution, as your watching this will hopefully lead to a lifelong relationship soon to be satiated by the supposedly impending DVD release.






Have a great weekend, 90s kids!


*Unforeseen by me, not by actual meteorologists. No, I'm sure those green-screen facing smug bastards knew all along.

**In this case, the unfortunately correct answer is yes, yes it is

What I want to know is how many seasons they will be releasing in 2010. Since we've been waiting so long, they should just go ahead and sell a box set of every episode rather than releasing each season separately.

oh Daria. I remember when our love affair first started, and I would sit and watch endless episodes of you after school. Then I watched more. And more. And finally I realized that MTV was playing you non-stop and as soon as I saw your cute bespectacled face with your Janeane Garafalo sounding voice, I would switch the channel. We had to have some time apart.

But NOW.....jesus christ, get with it MTV. You've denied us Daria for way too long. I miss her. I miss Jane. I miss Quinn. I miss crazy parents. I even miss Kevin and Brittany.

OH Daria! I can remember staying up late watching this with beavis and butthead because my brother would ALWAYS watch that.

Pop Champagne said...

haha nice! And oh I had a pair of overalls too I used to wear it ALL THE TIME! LOL!

and I agree, I guess American Idol has to go with someone everyone liked... I heard that Posh Spice didn't do too well when she guest starred on American Idol... hmmm

I LOVE Daria. <3 I quote that show all the time. Britney's "Don't fraternize me!" from one episode is like my catch phrase. I wish it was on DVD.
