If you missed it, that would be 'N Sync once more bringing down the house at last weekend's 2013 Video Music Awards, literally transforming fellow performers into 13-year-old girls as the likes of Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga freaked the fuck out, but not in their usual scary way.
"Ben Stiller Making Reality Bites!"
Anyone under 25 probably knows Ben Stiller best as that guy whose comedic peak involved having his balls stuck in a fancy pants zipper, but before that Ben was not only a pretty promising actor but also a director, as well. His debut was the twentysomething Gen-X comedy Reality Bites, a film so fucking '90s that it had Lisa Loeb on the soundtrack.
It couldn't be more '90s if it had blown an intern in the Oval Office.
It certainly was a great time for sarcastic young adults, and now almost a score later it looks as if Stiller is trying to reclaim that original spark with the announcement of a Reality Bites television show -- which once more follows lead character Lelaina Pierce in 1990s Houston sharing an apartment with slacker roommates. Because if there's one thing the kids today are into, it's '90s-era slackers sitting around an apartment in Texas.
"Jurassic Park a Worldwide Hit!"
The year is 1993, and paleontologists everywhere were getting wasted and going to see Jurassic Park, a film later declared as the biggest movie ever after completely dominating worldwide box office sales:
If you're wondering ... no, it wasn't released in 3D. That would be a headline about last month's re-release that declares yet again that a film from the same year as Beanie Babies is currently beating out every other movie for ticket sales. While great news for the film's staying power, it's probably not the best sign for Hollywood that the rest of the world would rather watch a movie they've already seen than risk it with bald Matt Damon.
