  • Random Hotness: Declan's Wardrobe

    Posted on 04/17/2010 by Mary

    Besides the fact that Landon Liboiron is the one wearing it, I feel like Declan's wardrobe deserves a hotness shout-out of its own. Last night's green sweater was great, but I will never ever forget this outfit from Love Games...

    The silver tie, loosely knotted around a clean but not too crispy white shirt. The green and grey striped hoodie that brings out his eyes, plus looks like it smells really good.

    Do any boys you know dress like Declan from Degrassi? Are you going to marry them?

  • Degrassi Breakdown: "Heart Like Mine, pt. 2"

    Posted on 04/16/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS BELOW... but if you saw the latest Degrassi episode, let's dish.

    1) It just occurred to me: Jenna's only real friends were Alli and Clare who basically hate her now; and K.C. barely has friends either. They are marooned on relationship island, and is it me or is it already tense on like, day 2? What' s going to happen with them?

    2) Fiona has issues. What was with that licking the coffee cup?

    3) Though, I did go "Aww" when Declan said "When you're not happy, I'm not happy." Are you that close to your brother(s) or sister(s)?

    4) Alli seems to want Clare to be more mad at K.C. than Clare actually is. She looked like she kinda wanted to be there for him when she realized he was going through such a hard time. Is that just the heartbreak talking, or do you think they can be real friends after what happened?

  • Five Questions for Landon Liboiron (aka Declan)

    Posted on 04/15/2010 by Mary

    This week, Landon Liboiron (aka Declan on Degrassi) gives us 5 answers.

    Landon Liboiron, Declan from Degrassi What was the first rock show/concert you ever went to, and what was the BEST rock show/concert you ever went to?
    The first official concert I went to was Corb Lund. I haven't been to a lot of concerts, so I would have to say Jason Mraz put on the best show I've seen.

    What makes you cranky? And what gets you un-cranky?
    I get cranky when a fly buzzes around your ear when you try and sleep. No matter how much you swat at the thing it doesn't get the point to leave.

    Watching a movie or playing guitar usually soothes me out if I'm in a bad mood.

    When you doodle, what do you draw?
    I don't know, whatever is in my mind at the time...

    What do you think makes a good Degrassi episode?
    I think kids going through what kids do makes a good Degrassi episode.

    And a user question from equinegal5: How have you changed since joining the show?
    I feel that I have. I feel like I'm more confident as an actor because being on a TV series forces you to work harder and be prepared. I also have a group of friends that have made my life different and more exciting. Good question.

    (Hey, btw, If you have a question suggestion for a Degrassi star, let me know, k? K!)

  • Degrassi Debate: Homewreckers vs. sluts.

    Posted on 04/14/2010 by Mary

    There's a pretty interesting Degrassi debate going on right now:

    "ughh!! I HATE JENNA! shes a sluut!" -icegirl111
    "I wouldn't say she's a slut, I'd say she's a homewrecker." - Sner2000
    "isnt a homewrecker a slut?" - junior08A
    "Uh no. Slut = has multiple partners. Homewrecker = Someone who intentionally ruins peoples relationships. I don't think she's either. Maybe she could be considered a homewrecker, but I think she genuinely liked KC." - ispinnerrr

    My personal contribution to the debate is fourfold.

    1) While I personally agree with ispinnerrr that the term "slut" is usually used to mean "promiscuous female", and that I can very easily picture a "homewrecker" who is not promiscuous...

    2) I'm not sure that "genuinely liking" the boyfriend you steal makes it not a homewrecker situation. What do you guys think?

    3) Also, I feel the overwhelming urge to quote Tina Fey in Mean Girls: "You all have got to stop calling each other sluts.... It just makes it ok for guys to call you sluts." Especially since people don't tend to call promiscuous guys "sluts", and definitely not with the same venom they reserve for promiscuous girls -- the ol' double standard. Which brings to mind...

    4) A question: can guys be "homewreckers", too? Would anyone call a guy who stole someone's bf/gf a "homewrecker"? I've never heard it done, but maybe you have? Or maybe you have another pet term for a guy who steals someone's bf/gf?

  • Marco Mini-marathon on today!

    Posted on 04/10/2010 by Mary

    All Marco all the time I just noticed in the Degrassi schedule, there's a little unofficial Marco-fest going on...

    • The one where he comes out and Spinner shuns him
    • the one where he battles Alex for student council
    • the one where he comes out to his dad in front of the whole school
    • the one where he and Ellie kiss
    • the one where he finds out Dylan's been cheating...

    Starting at 4 p.m. et, it's a very Marco kind of Saturday. Sooo many haircuts! Enjoy!

  • Degrassi: When is it time to break up?

    Posted on 04/10/2010 by Mary

    K.C. thinks he and Clare "can't be happy together" and were "just too different." Or maybe he was just more into Jenna, and 15 years old, and that was enough reason.

    If you've ever done the unenviable deed of ending a relationship... how did you know it was time? And did you make the right decision?

  • Degrassi Breakdown: "Heart Like Mine pt. 1"

    Posted on 04/09/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS BELOW for those who haven't watched the episode yet, so skip this until you've seen it.

    Everyone else, let's talk about Jenna behind her back:

    1) Show of hands... do you think Jenna and K.C. make a better couple than Clare and K.C.? And what should we call them... Kenna? J.C.?

    2) So, do you think Jenna stole K.C., or that he and Clare were going to break up anyway, or what? Where, if anywhere, do you think Jenna crossed the line?

    3) And should Clare be more mad at K.C. or Jenna?

    4) Dude. That coach creeps me out in the biggest possible way. What the hell.

    5) Poor Marco. Would you be scared to teach a high school class? Or do you think it would be fun?

    6) Hey Jenna. Your buttcrack's showing.

  • Five Questions for Jessica Tyler (Degrassi's Jenna)

    Posted on 04/08/2010 by Mary

    Jessica Tyler, Jenna from Degrassi What was the first rock show/concert you ever went to, and what was the BEST rock show/concert you ever went to?

    A bubble bath and lots of sleep lol.

    I draw hearts and stars.

    I think drama makes a great episode, it adds interest ;)

  • Johnny DiMarco: Old Hair vs. New Hair

    Posted on 04/07/2010 by Lisa

    One of my favorite things about Degrassi fans is that they (and I!) have an opinion on every aspect of the show. Up for discussion today: Johnny DiMarco's haircut. Are you for or against his new, shorter hair? It's kind of growing on me (no pun intended).

    Old Hair vs. New Hair!

    In a message board thread Li22ette says: "I hate it personally, I loved it long!"

    But SageSavage says: "I adore it. He's not so 'greasy' (in Sav's words) anymore. haha I liked him no matter what the length of his hair is, though. He just seems complex."

    Which side are you on in the great Johnny DiMarco hair battle?

  • Aislinn Paul's shoes in that Degrassi promo

    Posted on 04/06/2010 by Mary

    unemo asked: "Hey Mary I'm Catie and I was wondering, when they are shooting the TeenNick promos in the TeenNick office are you ever there?"

    So weird that you asked, because I was just looking through some pics I took at Aislinn's "I can be edgy! Rarr!" shoot. I wanted to make sure you saw her shoes because they weren't in frame in the promo, and they are some truly exceptional lavender suede high heel booties which should not go unheralded.

    Aislinn Paul in truly exceptional lavender suede high heel booties, for the record.

    And also here's a pic I took of the wardrobe spread that they laid out for her to choose from. So kinda like shopping in a giant walk-in closet for free. Her life, it's really really hard.

    Aislinn Paul's life is really, really hard.
