We all love a good Hollywood bad boy. It really doesn’t get much more 90s and bad than Christian Slater. In doing some internet research and immense digging I found out so much more about him than I ever thought possible. He had quite a few run ins with the law in the late 80s since moving to L.A. from New York City. Slater is best known for his roles in films like True Romance, Heathers, Interview with the Vampire, and Pump Up the Volume. That’s just for starters. Apart from his teen dol qualities he’s got such a great resume of classic cult films.
I just found out about “Gleaming the Cube” from 89 where he plays a skateboarder and his bleached tips are so on point. Definitely watching this one later. So let’s start of the week with a bit of 90s bad bou ‘tude in the form of Christian Slater.

I was talking to my mom this morning asking her about who I should profile for this Monday’s segment. Of course my mom suggested doing a post on Johnny Depp. I thought about it, and yeah I’ve mentioned him quite a lot throughout the years on the site but never have I devoted a post solely to him as a 90s retrospective.
He is truly one of my favorite actors ever. I love that he has kept his true “grunge” style well into his 40s. The man is truly perfect in every sense. I’ve tried to gather a crop of photos that I haven’t shown before but who can blame me if a few familiars snuck in.

Although I didn’t have a high school experience quite like the 80s cult flick Heathers, it had it’s similarities. There were multiple girls named Lauren in my elementary classes up until the 6th grade. Which prompted our class to either call us by our last names or some nickname. I chose to be my middle name, Melanie. Pretty rad, huh?
Heathers is a dark comedy with one of the best casts ever. Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, and Christian Slater cause havoc at Westerburg High. Aside from the brilliant story the fashion is ridic in the best way. Hopefully you all watch “Heathers” again today or see it for the first time.

When I was a teenager there weren’t too many actresses that I connected to. One of my earliest memories is relating to Tai from “Clueless” played by Brittany Murphy. She started out the grungy tomboy but eventually morphed into a true 90s girl. In my own life this transformation didn’t exactly happen, but I did love the fact that even through her new found “girlish ways” she still found love with the grunge stoner skater Travis. You can take the girl out of the grunge but you just can’t take the grunge out of the girl. Much like me.
In 2009 when I first found out that Brittany Murphy passed away, I was truly devastated. She was such an incredible actress and through much of my adolescence I followed her film career. From her roles in “Spun”, “The Dead Girl”, and “Girl, Interrupted” her range of personalities I felt always mirrored my own. Sometimes I can be crazy, a nerd, or just making jokes about anything. I thought for this Friday night while everyone is home in the rain or snow I could catch up and remember one of my favorite actresses who shaped so much of my persona in the 90s and just let me feel ok being me.

When I was a teenager I embarrassingly had a crazy amount of pictures from BOP Magazine on my wall. These included the likes of Andrew Keegan and various other celebs who have virtually dissapeared from view now. During those times there were so many girls who I thought were the bees knees. So since I’ve done a post on the 90s hearthrobs, here are the girls who I would have gladly switched places in when I was young.

there are so many more but we’ll save that for a future post!
