“Jane Pratt taps blogger Tavi Gevinson to revive â€˜Sassyâ€™.” As I said on Google Reader, this is one of the best gifts the universe could ever give me. Sassy was a huge, HUGE part of who I was (and who I wanted to be) in high school. I had a subscription and I read every issue voraciously. I thought Thurston Moore and Evan Dando were dreamy. I planned entries to the “Sassiest Girl in America” contest (but never followed through). I mocked Seventeen and YM. I even bought a hand-painted T-shirt (featuring a big female symbol) from the classifieds in the back and actually wore it to school.
I’ve got no idea what happened to my old magazines. They probably got chucked when I went off to college. It’s a huge source of regret. I really need to get that book.
