Hey all! So, good times with Ray and Charlotte (aka Sav and Holly J) in NY yesterday -- I still have a lot to transcribe and you'll see it all eventually but I wanted to drop two of their answers to your questions on them asap. 'Cause we're TEN DAYS from the Boiling Point y'all! That's like, an official countdown!
Facultybob asks: "Can you give me some shocking hints about what happens in Season 10? Is someone going to die? I'm really excited and can't wait."
Charlotte: Ok, what I'm most passionate about in all the story lines is sort of the gender identity situation which, we can't give too much away cause it's gonna unfold the way it will. But that topic I was really excited that they tackled.
There's also some other completely... like, even the most recent scripts we read, some of the areas they go to with Eli's character? I had no idea what was going on with Eli's character when I read the script. I was like, "Oh my god, this is something they sooo haven't tackled before."
And then just in general, everything has really been stepped up. Like right from the first episode -- Fiona's going through some really rough stuff. There's a lot of tension... I mean, that's why it's called the Boiling Point; there's tension building underneath the surface of every character. And it all comes to a head...
Charlotte: Cataclysmic is right.
Ray:: I like that word.
Chao asks: "Should I get a Mohawk?"
Charlotte (without hesitation): Yes.
Ray: Get what this... what is this called?
(Ray likes my haircut. We talked about it in Toronto. I have really asymmetrical hair, shaved and weird on one side and long on the other -- not totally unlike my avi hair -- which, Ray said earlier that as soon as they're done shooting this season he's going to do pretty much the same. - Mary)
Ray: I like it. Get that. If anybody's getting anything, get that.
Charlotte: Yeah, I like mohawks a lot. Is it a boy or a girl? Whether it's a boy or a girl, I think mohawks are really sexy so, go for it.

Remember "Against All Odds," the Season 3 Degrassi episode where Emma and Manny decide not to be friends anymore? (If not, check it out tonight @ 7:30pm.) Their "breakup" is pretty harsh.
It's hard to watch girls who've been best friends for years have a conversation like this:
Emma: You don't want to be friends?
Manny: Not with a stuck-up prude princess.
Emma: Good, because I don't want to be friends with the school slut.
Have you ever been through a friend breakup? (Feel free to share your story if it's not too painful.)
Did you and your ex-friend ever become friends again?

"Blow Outs are so rad. They actually inhale and exhale as you walk. And if I don't get these I'm going to be a total geek." That's D.J. from Full House, describing a pair of sneakers she's dying to own. (It happens in the "Working Girl" episode, which airs on TeenNick tonight @ 9pm.) I feel her pain, because I've been known to get a bit shoe-obsessed, too.
I get shoe-crushes on pretty much every pair that Irregular Choice makes, because I love bright-colored shoes that really stand out. I wish I owned them ALL... but that'd be pricey, and I'd need a bigger closet. I also have an adorable pair of ruffly pink Payless flats that I wear all the time. Colorful shoes just make me happy.
Do you have a favorite pair of shoes? Did you obsess for a while before you bought them?

Did you catch the video for Justin Bieber's "Somebody to Love" Remix with Usher on Obsess This?
No matter how you feel about Justin, you've got to admit the dancing in this video is pretty amazing. It includes a bunch of people you might've seen on America's Best Dance Crew, and their energy is infectious. (I love the part where Justin and some of the other dancers are stomping around in what looks like baby powder... it totally makes me want to throw some on the floor and dance in it.)
Have you seen it? What'd you think?

The last two posts have been kinda girly, so to balance things out, I'm gonna stick some cute Degrassi boys in your face.
I thought you might appreciate this super-serious Season 2 photo of Spinner, Marco, Sean, Jimmy, and Craig.
And here's a pic of J.T. looking like a total babe magnet. Does this one make you sigh and tear up a little? (Me, too.)

The Every Episode Ever marathon kicks off tonight at 6pm et, with the very first episodes of Degrassi! (Which, obscure trivia fact: those were not the first episodes of Degrassi we aired. I think we started with the third episode, then played the first two later on. Now you know!)
I just watched a little of the first episode, and three things stuck out immediately:
1) Everybody's voices were so high! JT literally squeaks at one point!
2) Manny used to look like this:
And 3) Cell phones used to look like this:

I'm sworn to secrecy, so maybe you should tell me what YOU think is up with these new Degrassi guys. What do you think their stories are, and which ones are you most excited to see in action on Degrassi: The Boiling Point... in July! So soon!
In alphabetical order...
One tiny bit of info: Adam and Drew are step-brothers.
One tiny bit of info: Drew's grades are not the best.
One tiny bit of info: Eli drives a hearse to school.
One tiny bit of info: Fitz might have a thing for smart girls.

Sittin' here, listening to Drake's first full-length album (out now!), remembering when he (or Jimmy, anyway) was a big ol' 8th grader on Degrassi, going out with Ashley, abusing Ritalin, fighting with Spinner over dance contests and mp3 players.
And all of that's gonna be on next week -- the Degrassi Every Episode Ever marathon starts Monday at 6pm et and rolls right on through for four weeks. Wash all your softest jammy pants, yr gonna need 'em.

Your T-shirt drawer is probably so crammed with crap T-shirts you never wear anymore. And there are all these new Degrassi shirts at Hot Topic, just waiting to be lovingly folded into your collection. It's unjust I say. UNJUST!
Unlame T-shirts, too, I swear! There's a Degrassi Panthers shirt, and even better there are RETRO Degrassi shirts, like this one. Yay life.
