weekend mixtape (for the kelly kapowski in you)

I am inside a modest minority of people who had a quite happy childhood, spending most (if not all) of my time playing with He-Man/Sheena/Power Rangers/Ninja Turtles toys and Hot Wheels cars that were gone before I knew it. The TV was also my friend during those inocent and sex-free days. Most of my friends on the tube belonged to the fictional Bayside High School, where they shared normal teenage angst, fucked up and by the end of the episode, they resolved things and had a laugh while learning something useful (more like life itself). There were something for everybody: the popular boy, the hot jock, the geek, the geek-ette, the black girl and of course, Kelly Kapowski, magistrally played by Tiffani Amber-Thiessen. Whether she plays an award winning role or not, is her greatest achievement. Ever. The naive dark haired hot pot was somewhat of a kiddie's guide to sex and beyond without really trying hard for it. Kelly was the epitome of a teen beauty queen and for that, this post is for her. For her legacy and for the possibilities of the Kelly Kapowskis of the 21st century (at least, where music is concerned)
