she didn't even last into the 2008ish trend of being "ASilv"-ed like robert pattinson and the like. anyway, i digress.
Let me start by saying that I LOVE Clueless (the film from 1995/6). I've seen it probably a billion times, and my love will never, ever, end. That being said, I think the one thing that always drew me to it (and maybe when I was in 6th grade I didn't realize this) was the culture of the mid-nineties it was set in. Satire or not, even beyond the characters, there are stereotypes dripping from the film. I had not yet hit high school, hadn't attempted to pass a driving test, and didn't know that the "Valley" was a city outside of LA thus prompting the crew to hit up the val party. So basically, I was unequipped to understand that I was right smack in the middle of the 1990s and was too young to really understand that decade that I admired so much from the movie. Sure, I could fashion my own black choker, and pretend that I knew old school Nirvana too (which I did pretend), but I could never understand the true meaning and social points that movie offered my older brethren. But maybe the reason why I'm so fascinated by that time is because I couldn't live in it. I couldn't live in it like I lived in 2002, or like I live in 2009. Is this where our fascination with past cultures comes from? I guess what I'm getting at is, if I "lived" (defined by growing up in) in the 1960s would I admire it any less?
sit on that bros.
