This is really something. Guys (or ladies who grew up loving both Full House and Wu-Tang) purchase your Wu-Tanner tee here for $25.
Apparently John Stamos is kind of a musician in real life. Am I the only person who didn’t know this? I mean – don’t get me wrong – I was completely convinced during the Full House years, but after that series John Stamos and music never collided again. Imagine my surprise when I found out that he’d be collaborating with none other than The Black Keys on their latest album.
On their newest album, John Stamos will actually be playing the drums for the band. (MULTI-TALENTED!)
“We’re working with John Stamos,” Carney of the Keys said. “He’s actually performing the drums on our album.”
On an important related note, this HelloGiggles post about why people shouldn’t be okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammy’s is quite insightful. I’ve had a similar opinion for awhile, but usually when I talk about that I make jabs at his performance and the more obvious scandal. This writer, however, has got some pretty solid facts and it is worth reading. And not to start something controversial, but the reason why that HelloGiggles post is mentioned on Yow Yow is so we can avoid things like this. It’s important for all of us to remember that there’s a border between a play on words or a play off pop culture, but this is not one of those times. It’s not cute anymore especially when it involves Chris Brown. Typing things like this out as a tweet is not the same as feeling the same way or wanting to be in that situation. Not being able to tell the difference between these things frightens me and makes me fear for the safety of other young women that have this notion in their head that it is okay to say these things.
“We’ll solve any crime by dinnertime.” Remember that? That’s not from the series above. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had SO many movies. There were so many that the movies had their own series such as the detective mystery ones and the parties. They also still had Full House, Two of a Kind, So Little Time, and their movies. They’ve done it all.
This movie reminds me of the good ol’ times. Times when the two of them both spoke words and ate.
Seriously, when was the last time we heard them talk?
Growing up, I watched enough episodes of Step-By-Step, Full House, and Boy Meets World to learn that a dinner and a movie equaled a date. Then again, that was over a dozen years ago. So what is a date now? I’ve read enough blogs to learn that a date today is something completely spontaneous and adventurous something not in the books. In fact, The Frisky has advised me to stray away from both a dinner and a movie. Don’t do dinners because you might get yourself into a situation that is unbearable and you can’t run out on a meal. Alternative? Do drinks or dessert instead. Don’t do a movie because there’s no talking involved. Duh!
Then time came for me to go on my very first date. We had coffee tea and hot chocolate at Stumptown. It lasted about an hour – a perfect duration of time for me – he paid [aww that's nice!] We had conversations about school, our hobbies, why we chose to go to Seattle U, the usual. He was a gentleman and super sweet.
After the date ended, I came back to report to my friends.
“How was your date?!”
“We went out to coffee at Stumptown, it was fun.”
“K – A coffee date isn’t a real date!”
“But… but … he paid! Why isn’t it considered a date?”
I decided to pose this question to my friends.
Yes, you can grab coffee with your friends and family, but what are the actual traits of a date and who makes them up?
“Hmmm I wanna say no. I feel like you would go on that to get to know each other better, but I wouldn’t say that is a date…more to find out if you actually like the person.”
“Yes! but its an intro date, not completely serious.
What do you think the traits of a date are?
…Interest as more than just friends one-on-one”
“I would say yes and no. It’s a casual place to get to know someone rather than going straight to the fancy restaurants etc.”
“Coffee is not a date. Coffee is like buddy buddy. Lunch is friendship, but dinner is a date date.” – wise words from my mother.
“If it’s just you and a guy then it’s more like a date I think, but not as serious.”
“I feel like it depends on the relationship that you have with the person. If it is someone you have known for a long time, I think its more of a way to catch up. I think that coffee with someone you are just getting to know is a date date cause its much shorter than dinner and you can make up something easier if you don’t want to stay with them after coffee.”
“I think it could be considered a date – if the man pays and you’re chilling at the coffee shop for a long while, chatting it up”
“Ummmm no, but it can because to guys coffee is a neutral thing to test the waters [and for girls] it is a nice way of guys playing with ones heart.”
Conclusion: Coffee dates are pre-dates. Most of my friends started off their responses with an “umm,” “well…” or “I think…” which means we’re all in the same boat here! There’s not really a definitive answer, and there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s also a lot of “It depends on the person/relationship” meaning it’s different for everyone. I’m not exactly right in my thinking, but I’m not wrong either.
This is probably the first time I’ve ever decided to watch television during the day over listening to music.
Full House was a good choice.
It was the episode where DJ wanted to become a babysitter and her kid got his head stuck in between the bars of a staircase and her dad (yep! Bob Saget!) came to bail her out. DJ mentioned that she didn’t think she was cut out for babysitting, but she was still trying to save up for her phone.
CUE end of the episode – DJ gets her own PHONE LINE!
lolololol remember when cell phones didn’t exist and people were just asking for their own phone lines? How convenient. 1990′s…
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are two of my favorite style icons. They have practically been my fashion influences since Full House. Aside from watching them grow up in their television shows and their series of weirdly romantic comedies like Passport to Paris, I have witnessed their growth in the debut of their two lines The Row and Elizabeth and James.
Both are beautiful collections, but way outside of my range. When I heard that Mary-Kate and Ashley were releasing their new line Olsenboye at JC Penny, I got a little bit excited. In fact, it was the same kind of excitement I felt when I heard Charlotte Ronson was collaborating with JC Penny as well. The news release of Olsenboye was huge in New York. There was a video teaser of young girls wearing the collection, a cupcake truck advertising the brand and selling merchandise all over the city and BALLOONS! Olsenboye was looking promising. Finally, women everywhere will be able to dress like the classy Olsen twins.
1) This isn’t how Mary-Kate and Ashley dress typically. I understand that it is a juniors line, but many of these trends happen to be outdated. The Gossip Girl wannabe blazers are okay, but why the badge? Why not keep it simple like Ashley Olsen’s usual look? Is it necessary for the plaid skirt to be high-waisted and fuller at the bottom? Don’t even get me started on that graphic tee above with slime colored writing.
2) I just went onto the JC Penny website, out of curiousity, to see if there would be more pieces featured. None of the items featured in the look book even appear on the website. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing at this point. In addition to this, all of the prices for the items on the website have been slashed in half!
Looks like the line didn’t do so well after all…
