    you're supposed to forget what it's like to be a teenager. it's supposed to slink off of you like a skin you shed once you turn 20 or get a job or decide you're a serious person that is ready for success and the upward drift of adulthood. you're supposed to leave it behind and let the memories mush into a muddy blob of half-understood greatest hits, and if the friction of your adolescence is mostly incidental, it's pretty easy…

    “orange era” nickelodeon looms so large in my age cohort’s media minds, that its presence is nearly inescapable. i feel like the iconography of its orange splat logo and products, rugrats, rocko’s modern life, all that, et. al. etc. overshadows the true meaning of why those television shows are so deeply connected to and meaningful to audiences that…

    the action happening on the margins of this movie is more interesting and engaging than what happens dead center frame in of 60% of other movies.
