10 Things I Hate About You
When I was 12, this is what I imagined high school parties to be like. "That must be Nigel with the brie!"
She's All That
She's All That
People need to start clearing dance floors to show off their moves more. I love when the mean girl in this movie dumps her drink on Rachael Leigh Cook and makes her cry. I love the Not Another Teen Movie parody of it even more.
This movie is the perfect reference for anything that ever happens in life. The party scene at the end of the movie is also a solid representation of a good party, but this scene brought us the classic line, "I'm a mouse! Duh."
Can't Hardly Wait
Can't Hardly Wait
I mean, this entire movie is a party. If my life was a movie, I'd pick this. And I'd cast myself as the hot girl walking in with fans blowing in her hair.
Everyone should scream "I'M A GOLDEN GOD!" at least once in their life.
Seinfeld character George Costanza is far from perfect. He's cheap, a total liar and can't be in a relationship longer than (what seems like) a day—which is why he's awesome! Here's some picks for what to get George if he was your Secret Santa, or something. - Hazel
A new (and normal sized) wallet to neatly store all of George's extremely important things like, you know, Irish money.
Perfect: a book of cards featuring people who hate their jobs for the man who always hates his job! I bet there aren't any architects or marine biologists in here...
George can never have too much flannel, right?
Give George a mustache so he can "take a vacation away from himself"
Because WHY NOT? And also I would love to see a Seinfeld episode where Kramer gives George a T-shirt of himself for Christmas.
One way to incorporate a little plaid is to play it safe with a nice red plaid tie, either the bow or neck variety depending on what works best for you. Just make sure you wear it on a solid color, or white, shirt to avoid pattern clashing.
If you're feeling confident in your formal plaid abilities go for the blazer! Again, avoid wearing a shirt that'll clash with the jacket and don't over do it by matching your tie. The key to pulling it off is playing down the pattern in the rest of your ensemble.
Oh, you fancy huh? These slippers should be reserved for the guy that prides himself as a classy dandy individual. I would if I could!
I have to say that I've fallen in love with this melancholy little 2013 planner, the Disappointments Diary. Designed by Hat-trick Design and published by Asbury & Asbury, this seriously demotivating planner is chock-full of depression, sorrow, and just downright terrible vibes. My favorite section is the contacts section, for "People Who Never Call." At least this planner is honest, right? The perfect gift for your most disappointing friend. - Hazel
Jing Yu can make a piñata of anyone and that sounds like the perfect addition to any party. - Hazel
As a lover of all things print, I would love to receive a subscription to any one of these beautiful publications as a gift. Digital subscriptions are great since it saves trees and bulk but it's just not as satisfying as opening up some thick printed pages. Give the gift of print with a subscription to Wilder Quarterly, Apartamento, Kinfolk, or Blind Spot. -Bob
The Valley Party
So, OK, Cher was at this party, and her designated driver tried to attack her, so she got out ‘cause they stopped, and then he drove off and deserted her, and then this guy with a gun held her up, took her money, and her phone and he yelled at her and he forced her to ruin her dress!!!! Nothing like a good sob story in your Alaïa to get your super cute former step-brother Josh to pick you up in the valley.
Hostess Gift: Cry About It Bandages. Just incase you find yourself facedown in a mini dress, you'll have some cute bandaids to wear when you're telling everyone at school about your near death experience.
LC's Black and White Party
It's only the first episode ever of Laguna Beach and Kristin is ALREADY starting some drama. At LC and Morgan's totally lame "Black and White Affair," Kristin arrives at the party and the eye rolling begins—cue the fighting, pouting, and whining over Stephen for the rest of the series. From this point on Lauren cries in like, EVERY SINGLE EPISODE, so watch all the DVDs for a crying extravaganza.
Hostess Gift: Stila Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Color. For a stain-free face, LC should waterproof everything she wears/owns.
Rayanne Graff's Birthday Party
Oops! Rayanne had a little too much to drink again at the party she throws with the $270 she gets from her dad on her birthday. The life and host of the party bounces around her mom's apartment, almost gets a tarot card tattoo, then gets saved by Angela's mother. (Side note: in my MSCL dreams, RG gets totally sober in Season 2, turns her life around and works as a stylist at Urban Outfitters.)
Hostess Gift: STAY SOBER. That and Bliss Baggage Handler Eye Gel so she doesn't look too awful leaving the hospital with the hangover of a lifetime.
DJ Tanner's 13th Birthday Party
In the Full House episode "13 Candles," DJ and Kimmy are scheming to get DJ her first kiss with Kevin at her boy and girl birthday party by playing spin the bottle. The kiss gets ruined by Danny, Joey and Jesse who are snooping (of course) and DJ is soooo embarrassed. Lucky for her, Kevin sneaks back for a after-party kiss and makes the night all worth it! Yay, tears of joy!
Hostess Gift: Some Kissing Elixirs Fresh Breath Mist for all the future smoochin' DJ's going to be doing.
Any Bluth Party Ever
I mean, COME ON! It seems like the Bluth family can never catch a break. Whether they're throwing a benefit party for TBA, a no-show birthday party, or ANY party on a boat, they're totally screwed. The family would probably cry if any of them had any emotions (except for Tobias) but they don't so, LOL.
Hostess Gift: An Awkward Family Photo Album for all of the past (and future) photos of the family that are stashed in that secret back room along with Tobias' bodybuilding magazines.
Yo dawg, I heard you like Family so I put some family in some Family so you can Family while you family.
eHarmony kind of way. Illustrator Kaori Mitsushima has created a Cats I Know wall calendar for 2013, based off her blog which is filled with, well, CATS. Thanks to her, every day of every month can now be filled with them too. Woooo! Cat party! -Ally
Filmmaker, artist, writer, and all around filthy dude John Waters would no doubt have a totally whacked-out Christmas gift list. The Pope of Trash loves all that is shocking, campy and generally ridiculous. For the holidays, here are just a few gift ideas for John Waters. - Hazel
As a die-hard prankster and a lover of, well, disgusting people, John Waters would love these fart bombs. Ugh, gross? Or sneaky and awesome? YOU DECIDE.
Waters takes a polaroid of every person that visits his house, so he might appreciate some of the Impossible Project's vintage film, like this Silver Shades set of film!
BABY WE WERE BORN TO DIE, right? I have this feeling that John Waters would love Lana del Rey in all her kooky campiness. Start him off with her debut, even though I swear "My P***y Tastes Like Pepsi Cola" is totally something Babs Johnson would snarl at tabloid photographers.
John Waters has an art collection that most modern art museums would drool over. Give him MORE art with the latest edition of Phaidon's Art Book. Does he need it? Probably not, but one can never have too many art books. I think J.W. would agree.
What do you buy a man who has fake food in every room of his house? Fake food for his Christmas tree, duh.
