deb- empire records

Deb is the girl who came in with hair, but after a short period in the bathroom, comes out with a new look. She keeps to herself about her problems until the rest of the gang shows how much they truly care about her more than just a co-worker; they're each other's family. "No revealing clothing, visible tattoos or piercings....we're screwed"

AJ- empire records

AJ is hopelessly in love with two things: Corey, and art. Well, and chunky cardigans. He is contemplating going to art school with Corey while she goes to Harvard, or does he stay at the store and wait for her to return the feelings he has for her. "Who glued this quarters down?" "I don't feel I have to explain my art to you, Warren"

Mark- empire records

Mark is the cute, child-like guy who just kind of keeps to himself and his various projects. Until the news reporters show up at the street in front of the store, he gets an idea of how to make the money back; he goes in front of the cameras and says: "We're having a get-together here at Empire tonight...DAMN THE MAN! SAVE THE EMPIRE!"

Lucas- empire records

 Lucas is the guy who takes the store's money and gambles it all at Atlantic City. He comes back and he is now a human fortune cookie, very insightful and saying things that don't make sense to anyone. "Lucas, what's with you today?" "What's with today, today?"

Corey-empire records

Empire Records is one of my favorite movies. It has an awesome soundtrack of 90s alternative music that you don't really hear that often anymore, and by the end of the movie, you wish you had a place like these kids have to go. They all work in a record store(another thing you never see anymore sadly) and its just about one day of work and all the support they have for each other, but also what situations cause that support to stop temporarily. Another thing I love is the way they all dress exactly how they want, something I think we have lost in the past decade. If Corey (played by Liv Tyler) wants to wear a plaid mini skirt and combat boots, she's going to wear a plaid mini skirt and combat boots! That's why over the next few posts you'll see not exact replicas of what they all wore that day, but things very similar and what you can buy today. So, if you see an item or style you like, by all means, go out and buy it! We need more people thinking outside the box and finding inspiration to make up for the hollister and american eagle and abercrombie robots we have running around on this earth.

Who's that girl? It's Jess!

So I am in love with the show new girl and suggest you all watch it! I love zooey deschanel and her style and how adorkable Jess is. Yes, adorkable. If you watch the show you will soon realize why she's adorkable.
The show gives Jess's wardrobe alot from modcloth. Which is unfortunate because I love modcloth but cannot afford it on my teen budget, and seeing it on tv makes me want the dresses and cute shoes more.
But yeah this is just a little something that made me think of Jess so enjoy!

Teenage Riot

I was walking through school today and a kid said "niiice" and pointed to my Beatles shirt. This kid is the classic rocker with his slim build, shaggy hair, and stereotypical diction of "man", "rock on", etc. spilling out of his mouth. And it made me think, why has rock seemed to have disappeared into the oblivion of pop and dub step. If you were to go back definitely to the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s you would see a substantial population of rockers, even in the 90s with the alt rock coming in, people still held fast to the rocker definition of not caring what people thought and doing what you want, wearing what you want, BEING what you want. Yet in the past ten years this way of life seems to have completely disappear. Today people only listen to what's on the top 40, and as one artist falls off the chart, they soon forget completely about the band or artist that they were totally in love with last week. With rockers, you find the band whose sound, lyrics, ideas, etc spoke to you and you stuck with that band even if they were no longer popular. As long as they didn't change their sound and the music still spoke to you, you went to their concerts, bought their albums (not just ONE song off iTunes, which is KILLING bands by the way, please by from record stores when you can, the people actually know what they're talking about). Just look at the dead heads, they are so loyal and followed the grateful dead from show to show because they wrote songs that spoke to those people ( as we see with Lindsey weir and Kim Kelly in freaks and geeks as the follow the dead with their new friends hitting shows all over the country in 2 weeks). Last time I checked, I could relate more to just having a bad day and it being okay like "I don't want to live today" by the ape hangers than these sugary pop songs about being in the club every night(and if you are a 17 year old like I am, I highly don't suggest unless you want to be a 17 year old with a beer gut...)
And when people start giving in to the conformity of pop, then record labels don't sign the rockers anymore, which is why we haven't seen a new rock band in a couple years. Luckily we have the classics keeping up and touring like the stones and Aerosmith, but we can't expect them to cover our asses forever. We need musicians who aren't afraid to challenge the pop artists and stand out!
So stop thinking like everyone else and think like yourself! Find yourself and find the music that will help you through the highs and lows through life.
Start a teenage riot!

These Shoes Are Made For Rock n Roll

I have always worn converse since I was a little girl. The blue, usually low top, converse that only get switched out when I grew out of the pair I had. I always wore my converse with jeans but I recently found a new pair of shoes that are just as rock n roll but a little more of a twist than the good ol converse. They're black flats with spikes all over and I'm in love. I definitely won't be forgetting my converse but these will definitely have equal wearing time as the old standbys.
