They made a short-lived TV version of Look Who’s Talking called “Baby Talk.” Connie Sellecca quit after taping a few episodes because she thought it was crap. George Clooney hung around for the season, though.
Reminds me of some time in the mid-late ’90s when I asked my dad if our home PC “had internet.” Because I didn’t know what made the internet actually work or even how it worked — I just wanted it. He had to explain what a modem was and that no, we did not have internet. I would not send my first email until another 2 years after that.
We had a computer in the house in the ’80s and early ’90s. Every time they upgraded at my dad’s office he’d bring one of the older ones home. An Apple II, then an Apple IIC, and then a Macintosh the size of a coffeemaker with a screen the size of a make-up mirror. Whatever it was, it was always called “the word processor” in the house because no one knew what to do with it except type stuff. And play Pac-Man.
I keep trying to think of something clever to say about this ad, but I keep getting distracted by the beautiful, gamine Edie Sedgewick blonde on the left and how annoying it is that she looks like some rad little hipster girl. In fact, everyone is annoyingly attractive in this ad (yes, I know, because it’s an AD), but you know they never actually wore those kinds of clothes in real life. Except maybe Edie because she can pull anything off. She’s the only one giving any credibility to this entire shoot. Edie’s got this and she knows it.
Celebrating the best of the worst of the 1990s. Sometimes with snarky commentary.
Everyone likes to remember the good part of that decade -- the part with grunge and the evolution of hip-hop and hot supermodels. This blog is devoted to the tacky side effects of these scenes, namely, really fugly clothes and outdated products.

Welcome to the dark side -- where it's so bad it's good.
