Truly Outrageous

My friend posted a link on facebook to the complete Jem and the Holograms series on DVD. Mimi then commented on how I would love it & she is right I do love it.
Obviously I grew up watching Jem & wanted to be the pink haired, awesome eye makeup rock star with magical star earrings. But I want to share a story that shows that I was also awesome as a teenager.
When I was a freshman in high school I had PE first hour, which sucked but what didn't suck was a girl in our class found her Jem cassette player & cassette tape from when she was a kid and she brought it in so we could not only listen, but sing along too as well. I know what you are thinking it is just like that Saved By the Bell episode with the girls singing I'm so Excited in the locker room. You are right it is almost exactly like that!

Yes I still do know the words to the theme song thanks to my freshmen physical educations class. 

While looking for a picture of the cassette player I found this picture online and it was crazy how suddenly I could remember exactly how the plastic felt and what the plastic mask smelt like. I can't remember if my mom bought me the costume or if I just wore it at a friends but I know I wore that costume. It is so crazy how I had no memory of that costume a few minuets ago but now I can tell you what it smelt like. 


  1. I loved watching Beverly Hills Teens. I found them on VHS on ebay and loved them, but now I don't have a VHS player:( Some day they are going to put it on DVD. Here's wishing.

  2. Marci, I just went to youtube I think I watched Beverly Hills Teens but I don't have much recollection. Debbie has a VHS and she always finds all these awesome movies on VHS. I am thinking about finding one.

  3. Oooo oooo ooo Jem, Jem is outrageous, truly truly truly outrageous, Jem is my name, no one else is the same, JEM!
    I remember dancing around to my Jem cassette tape that came with my Jem doll for hours and hours.
