• Degrassi at the KCAs!

    Posted on 03/24/2010 by Mary

    I am in the mood for sharing. Can we share? Ok. I'll go first:

    I just heard that Sam Earle (K.C.) and Melinda Shankar (Alli) will both be going to the KCAs on Saturday night!

    Ok now you share: Make up a KCA you would give to Sam and Melinda! 'Cause they sure as poop deserve 'em even if they weren't nominated harrumph. Who cares, they don't need no boring old favorite TV actor and actress awards. (I'm gonna give Melinda "Favorite performance of the word 'awesome'." And Sam gets... "Most Believable Cute-Yet-Smart boy.)

  • Uncle Jesse's last name change.

    Posted on 03/21/2010 by Mary

    Did you know Uncle Jesse's last name changes between season 1 and season 2 of Full House? I didn't until I read one of our message board threads... apparently John Stamos wanted it to be more Greek so they changed it from Cochran to Katsopolis.

    If you could change your last name to anything, anything at all... what would it be? ( Points deducted for just using your crush's last name, sorry.) Create your new identity in the comments...

  • Off like a Degrassi prom dress?

    Posted on 03/21/2010 by Mary

    Maybe it's the uniqueness of the night, the fact that everyone smells so darn good, or that little extra leeway on curfew people get... but why does prom night have this air of "let's make this night special, and by special, I mean SPECIAL"? Do you and/or your friends think there's any reason to go further on prom night than you would on any other night?

    (Looks like Anya and Sav might, though I guess there are other factors at work there, too.)

    I know, right, QV? WE SAW HER FIRST. But whatevs, if you love someone set them free.

  • School Gyrls coming soon!

    Posted on 03/17/2010 by Chairman Nick Cannon

    Chairman Nick Friends! Romans! What's poppin', it's been a minute! A chairman is a busy thing, lemme tell you. My calendar reminders are going off like popcorn kernels. But I wanted to drop in real quick and remind y'all that my girls (...or should I say my gyrls...) the School Gyrls, will be on TeenNick this Friday night at 9p et.

    I'm proud of that movie... it's one of my own special projects. So you'll see me hangin' with those ladies, probing their minds with my incisive questions during the breaks.

    And uh... you've already been told Justin Bieber and Soulja Boy are up in that masterpiece, right? Well, you've been told now. So it's your duty... your responsibility to yourSELF... to make sure your butt is on that couch Friday night. We straight? Good.

    Keep it locked! I miss you, boos! I'll be back soon!

    - Chairman Nick

  • Would you want your uncle at your prom?

    Posted on 03/15/2010 by Lisa

    Is it weird that I feel bad for D.J. from Full House that her Uncle Jesse's band played at her prom and her Aunt Becky was a chaperone? (That episode is on tonight @ 8pm, fyi.) My friend Dan would probably tell me not to feel bad for a fictional character, but I can't help it.

    I feel like D.J. would have a lot more fun with a different band and other chaperones. I'm a pretty private person, though. Maybe I'm overthinking it.

    Would it bother you if your aunt and uncle (or other adult relatives) were hanging out at your prom?

    On a sillier note, my favorite thing about the Prom Night episode is this exchange:
    "Why is D.J. putting perfume on her ears?" - Michelle
    "Must I explain everything? It's so she won't smell like ear sweat." - Stephanie

    Ear sweat. Haha.

  • Sav and Anya Bickerson

    Posted on 03/12/2010 by Mary

    Sav and Anya can find pretty much anything to bicker about...or, maybe more accurately, Anya can find anything to pick a fight about with Sav, and Sav can back down and put his tail between his legs on almost any topic.

    Do you know any couples like that? ARE you any couples like that?

  • Good Michelle vs. Bad Michelle

    Posted on 03/09/2010 by Lisa

    Good Michelle vs. Bad MichelleAnyone out there remember the Full House episode where "Good Michelle" and "Bad Michelle" both offer Michelle advice?

    Good Michelle wiggles her finger in a snobby way and says stuff like "Good girls always follow the rules."

    Bad Michelle wears a tiny biker jacket and says "Stick a sock in it, goody-pants." Of course I like Bad Michelle better. I seriously wish they'd wrestled it out though. Olsen twin vs. Olsen twin... that'd be better than WrestleMania.

    I just asked my inner voices for advice, and here's what they said:
    Good Lisa: "You've got lots of work to do. No time for distractions."
    Bad Lisa: "Stick a sock in it, worky-pants. Let's go to the park and look for cute boys with cute dogs."

    What do your conflicting inner voices say?

  • Join the Spinner Debate

    Posted on 03/06/2010 by Lisa

    Spinnersunsoaker3 got a big debate started on the message boards. She says, "Spinner is way too old to still be chillin around the high school crowd."

    Some of the people posting seem to agree:

    "I know I definitely think he should hang around with a crowd that's more his age." - krisl

    "I think its quite sad that Spinner hasn't moved along like everyone else. Darcy left for Africa, Manny and Emma are in college, Paige and them are fully grown adults with their own lives and successes. Everyone is gone and I feel Spinner will be there in Toronto forever, even after Peter and them leave." - tweenkid

    But others are sticking up for Spin:

    "Well, he is dating a girl in high school, his band is still in high school, his best friend moved far away right after graduation, and he runs the Dot. What is supposed to do? Give up on everything and everyone he loves because they are all younger?" - jsi959

    "I think you all must be forgetting that not everyone moves away after school. Not everyone goes off to college/joins a band/goes to Africa/etc. Spinner's situation is common, to be honest. I graduated in 07 and I haven't left my hometown. If all of your friends move away to do whatever it is that they're movin away to do, you'll eventually make new friends." - MrLWeegee

    I didn't have anyone like Spinner around when I was in high school, but I sort of wish I had. It makes me wonder how many people are in that situation.

    If you're in high school, are any of your good friends a few years older than you?

    If you've graduated already, do you have any friends who are still in high school?

  • Are you the Clare friend or the Jenna friend?

    Posted on 03/04/2010 by Mary

    When your friend wants to get back together with the guy who fwded her naked pics and lied about being a virgin but she still loves him and he maybe still loves her and it's all very confusing and she wants advice (tonight, Degrassi, 10p et), are you the Clare friend, or the Jenna friend?

    As in, are you the one who gives the reality checks and solid advice and tries to keep your friends out of trouble, but sometimes might come off as judgy?

    Or the one who cheerleads for romantic ideals and experimenting with life and not being judgy, but sometimes maybe fails to avoid trouble?

    Or somethin' else entirely?
