Truly Outrageous

Jem and the Holograms, the complete first AND Second Season is on DVD.

Now all my life needs to be "truly truly outrageous" is He-Man and She-Ra on DVD. My inner eighties child screamed with delight with the discovery of Jem on DVD. What will she do if and when She-Ra makes the leap to DVD? (Princess of Power! grin!)

I know! I screamed, "Holy Crap" out loud at work when I saw the ad for Jem in the magazine I was reading. I was so freaking pleased

JEM!! Yes!!
That's possibly the best news I've heard all day, or all week for that matter!

It always surprises me how often I find myself reminiscing with some friend or other about Jem. It was truly a staple of my youth. And now it can be mine!
But the misfits had better songs, I always thought. Green and black, baby. Green and black.

No it's totally on my list, but I just haven't gotten it yet.

That's because Michele has had it for 6 months. You can't expect them to have more than one copy! ;-)
