    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?

    Judge yourself in the comments...

  • What's that "We Are" song?

    Posted on 02/26/2010 by Lisa

    Over on the message boards, Kyokugen22 asked "Anyone know the ending song that plays at the end of 'Love Games'?" I'm swinging my hand in the air wildly, because I totally know the answer. It's "We Are" by Tupelo Honey. Here's their MySpace.

  • Degrassi Breakdown: "Love Games"

    Posted on 02/05/2010 by Mary

    SPOILERS AHOY. Shut your eyes and turn away if you didn't watch Love Games yet. Otherwise....

    1. "You want low-maintenance. Date a Honda." Isn't it weird how, with the Declan's of this world (whether they're guys or girls)... so many people think that the way to get them is to be or do whatever The Declan's want. To roll over, basically. But The Declan's all want a challenge -- a Jane, a Holly J. Someone with their own independent ideas. Do you notice this to be true with people you know? Or do they all seem to want Hondas?
    2. Declan spilling his feelings through the door of the sound-proof booth was kind of genius. I know so many people who conduct their harder-to-have talks in moderated ways. Sometimes it's much easier to compose your thoughts in longform writing, or I remember reading about a couple who choose to only argue through a closed door. What's your favored medium for talking about things you have a hard time talking about? Phone, face to face, in person while holding each other, in the car, via txt, IM, long emails...?
    3. So.... Danny and Chantay, cute and all, and all's fair in love and war and all that buuuut... do you think Chantay should date her friend's recent ex right after they broke up like that? Or are these special circumstances?

  • Are you cool with old people?

    Posted on 12/23/2009 by Mary

    I mean like really old nursing home-aged people, like the ones D.J. volunteers with on Full House? This episode actually kinda reminds me of Say Anything, too (the movie, not the band)... anyway. Some people are great with old folks, some are totally freaked out by them. Which are you? And why?
