• Drake and Josh's dream car.

    Posted on 05/13/2010 by Lisa

    Megan's outfit = adorbs.I'm going car shopping this weekend (Eeee!), so I've got cars on the brain. I just noticed that at 7:00 pm tonight, we're showing the Drake & Josh episode where the guys shop for a car, and their dad makes them take Megan along.

    They go to a used car lot and completely disagree about what kind of car to get. Megan falls in love with the bright yellow VW Beetle in this photo. Megan, I'm right there with you -- but I'd prefer it without the flowers. I love cute, bright-colored cars that are easy to spot in a parking lot.

    Drake wants a black '67 Mustang, but Josh wants a practical sedan. (Oh, Josh. Live a little!)

    If you could have any car in the world, what kind would you choose?

  • Complete Prom Looks for $150. True Story.

    Posted on 05/13/2010 by Mary

    Someone asked you last minute? Or you just found out some other girl is wearing your dress? You know, you can replace your entire prom look for under $150, like right now. 'Cause, real talk: the key to having an awesome prom is not how much you spend. (The real key is a complicated formula involving friends, dates, after-prom plans, and who's in charge of hiring the DJ.) Not to mention, prom tickets are expensive enough these days.

    With that in mind, we found -- and it wasn't even that hard! -- four different head to toe prom looks for less than $150. Except one that went $5 over, but... don't call the cops on us, OK?

  • Are you TOO jealous? Is Holly?

    Posted on 05/11/2010 by Mary

    Some people are so secure that no amount of hot exes constantly texting their bf/gf's can make them break a snarl; some, like Holly on What I Like About You, seem to think it's reasonable to ask their boyfriends to delete all females' numbers from their phone.

    Whereabouts do you fall on that continuum? On a scale from 1 - 5, one being "whatever, no big!" and five being "THIS MUST STOP NOW", rate how much the following scenarios would stir up that woogy jealous feeling in your gut. (And for extra credit, average all your numbers and let us kn ow your Overall Jealousy Score.)

    2) You see your bf/gf laughing and having fun with someone you know is just a friend:
    1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

  • Jordin Sparks' Nail Art. Discuss.

    Posted on 05/08/2010 by Mary

    Jordin Sparks' gold nails

    So... couldn't help but notice Jordin's epic nails -- operating some sort of touchscreen, no less -- in the "S.O.S. (Let the Music Play)" video. (It was on Obsess This this morning; you can see it in our Video Hub now or on Obsess This Sunday at noon et). Let's discuss:

    1) Like or dislike? Just as a concept ?

    2) Would/Could you wear them yourself?

  • Degrassi Breakdown: "Innocent When You Dream"

    Posted on 05/07/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS! BELOW! DO NOT READ unless you've already watched the episode OK? If your eyeballs slip, I'm sorry.

    Everyone else... we have much to discuss.

    1) I feel like Declan handled Clare um, kissing his neck (out of nowhere) pretty amazingly suavely. Most people have a hard time even handling people they're not into having a crush on them. Could you be that cool if someone you didn't really see in that way was acting so ga-ga over you? < /p>

    1b) Also, I think I might be starting to totally love Holly J. So, so big sisterly of her.

    2) I find it interesting that Clare's feelings of guilt about her perfectly normal feelings toward Declan turned her right back into "judgy Clare." It's like she's judging herself, and then she turned it out wards onto Alli... what did you guys think of that whole interaction?

    3) Have you ever had um "dreams" about someone you know that you were like "Whoa, what? Really? That person?" I know I have. I've heard that it's not really about the person in real life, it's just what they stand for in your mind. But that doesn't make it less freaky to wake up from one of those!

    4) So, now Sav is going to make cat videos for a hobby? Whatever it takes... but dude needs a new crush. Who should be next for Sav?

    5) So... real talk... do you think Anya really is a manipulative and dishonest person, and that Sav is right to be so pissed off at her?

    6) Ahhh, Seven Minutes in Heaven. I had my first kiss during a game of Seven Minutes. What's your kissing game history?

  • K.C. and Declan - Are they Aislinn Paul (Clare)'s type, too?

    Posted on 05/06/2010 by Mary

    One time, I cornered Aislinn Paul (Clare from Degrassi) and made her talk about boys. She was very accommodating to my nosiness, because she is SUPER nice. And pretty much exactly as smart and realistic as you'd think she is.

    Aislinn Paul, Clare from Degrassi Do you have a type? I always get to the point where I think I know my type, but then I like someone completely different and I don't know why. I think they just have to be someone who's willing to have conversations about the world... and just, think about stuff, as opposed to being rash and acting before thinking.

    Have you ever had a crush on someone who had like, never cracked open a book? Yup! So, I think I know what my type is, but then I just trick myself and like someone completely different.

    Do you and your friends have any rules about whether you can date ex-boyfriends, current crushes, anything like that? Well, the problem at my school -- I go to an arts school. So there's about one boy for every... twenty girls? So we don't even really worry about it. We just say, "Everyone, go for whoever."

    How 'bout you guys... do you have a type?
  • Could you make out with someone you just met? Stephanie could.

    Posted on 05/05/2010 by Lisa

    Oooh, Stephanie!Tonight we're showing the episode of Full House where Gia hooks Stephanie up with this guy Bobby. When Steph and Bobby meet, he tries to make out with her about two seconds later. She's a little freaked, but then she gives it a shot. If you like watching awkward makeout sessions, this one's a TV classic.

    Seriously, though... If a Bobby-ish person in your life (somebody you've noticed, but never talked to) said "Hi" and started kissing you, would you be into it?

    Are there any special circumstances that would affect your decision? (If the person is un-buh-lievably cute? If your favorite slow song is playing in the background?)

  • Clare: Mature or Immature?

    Posted on 05/03/2010 by Mary

    I was just thinking...

    On Degrassi, Clare can sometimes seem younger than some of her friends: less experienced, more "innocent" -- just buying a black bra was like whoa for her.

    But other times she seems older than everyone: less impulsive, a little wiser -- she's the kind of person who will give you the smart advice, not just the "omg, you're so right" treatment. And she's doing way-beyond-her-years academic work.

    Would you say Clare is more mature than the other students at Degrassi... or less mature?

  • Justin Bieber: Yay or nay?

    Posted on 05/01/2010 by Mary

    Did you see our new Obsess This thingy? It was on at 10 am et today (like cartoons, but with Taylor Swift and Big Time Rush) and it's on again at noon et on Sunday (cereal + music + sleeping in = weekend gold). You can see the videos over here, too, if ya like.

    Anyway, what with Justin Bieber's "Baby" being up there, I thought now was as good a time as any to have a Justin Bieber debate in the comments!

    1) Are you a fan, or are you rolling your eyes right now?

    2) Whether you'd buy his stuff or not... how talented do you think he is on a scale from 1 -10? One being "kind of like those first episodes of American Idol every season where they trot out the crazies" and 10 being "Basically Michael Jackson".

    3) And... would you kick him out of your car if he asked for a ride home?

  • Hey, drivers! Help a future driver out.

    Posted on 04/30/2010 by Lisa

    Josh can drive!If you've already taken your driver's test, what advice would you give someone who hasn't? If you passed, you're full of useful info -- but even if you failed your test, you might have a few tips that'd help somebody else pass.

    In the episode of Drake & Josh that's on right now, Drake doesn't get his license because he runs four stop signs (and does a bunch of other things wrong) during the test. Tip #1: Stop signs mean STOP. All the way. Take it from Drake.

    If you've ever taken a driver's test, please answer these:

    1) What are the most important things to know for the road test?
    2) What were the hardest questions on the written test?
    3) If you've ever taken a driver's test and failed, what did you do wrong?
    4) Got any other driver's test advice?
