I’m a huge Jem fan. Maybe you watched the 80’s cartoon about a band using holograms to capture America’s heart and support a foster home for girls. I remember being completely into the complicated love triangle of Jem, Jerrica, and Rio and singing along to their catchy songs. Recently, I was able to join in the #jemlivetweet and learn just how many times The Misfits really should’ve been arrested and thrown under the jail(Shout out to @blackgirlsnerds, @reeltalker, and @reelsistas for some fun Saturdays).
You’ve probably heard about the fall theatrical release of Jem and the Holograms. Peep these tweets(1 & 2) to see how I feel about the movie.
I went to an 80’s party Saturday night and had a really good time. For future reference, if you’re going to require people to wear costumes for an event and it’s not Halloween, do it at someone’s house. There’s nothing like being among people you don’t know dressed ridiculously and in a public place. It can make you terribly self-conscious and detract from an otherwise good time.
