POP CULTURE blow off of the day: i just feel like we've crossed this imaginary line.

In honor of 90210 day, here's an encore post.

Back in the early 90s, girls were divided into two categories: those who loved Dylan and those who loved Brendan. I sort of went back and forth between the two. Despite my indecisiveness, i can't listen to losing my religion by REM, without thinking about Brenda breaking Dylan's heart in his porsche.

I think i was about eleven years old when i watched the break up scene on TV and I balled my eyes out and screamed "don't do it, brenda." I mean, it didn't make sense. She wasn't even pregnant. I still resent the fact that Dylan pursued Kelly and that on the new 90210 they have a child together. Uh-uh, no way. Brenda and Dylan 4-eva.


  1. I am so pro Dylan and Brenda it's unbelievable. Dylan and Brenda are soulmates, Kelly and Dylan were just fuckbuddies. That said, how could she break up with a guy who looks that good taking off his motorcycle helmet. Swoon.

  2. Oh Sara,
    I REMEMBER you crying! I think you are right about the Dylan/Brandon thing...However, as square as it is...I was a Brandon girl.

  3. Brenda: "I have an announcement to make... I guess at the moment I'm just not ready for a sexual relationship."

    WHO are the writers for this show???

  4. Oh my god, yes! I forgot about those two categories of girls (Dylan all the way!). I feel like I've entered a very strange and disturbing stage of my life where there are, now, two categories of women: those that love Bill and those that want to be bitten by Eric. You know what I'm talking about.

  5. oh, man anonymous. I've never watched an episode of true blood, but i seriously need to start!
