OUT NOW: "Daria: The Complete Animated Series" on DVD!
A balm for droll, disaffected girls too smart for the moronicity of high school (and ergo, the rest of the world), the character of Daria Morgendorffer won my heart in the late 90s with her dry NPR-on-sarcasm voice, bitingly brainy point-of-view, and aggressive brand of apathy. No one could just refuse better than Daria, whether she was cutting down her popular sister Quinn or dealing with Beavis and Butt-head's shenanigans. "Daria" started as a spinoff of "Beavis and Butt-head" but quickly became a pop culture entity in its own right, and the show made caustic wit and ironic affect the true accessories for any self-respecting grrrl back in the day. (One of my favorite Daria quote: "Edgy and icky are so hard to tell apart these days." Dude, THAT IS STILL SO TRUE!) Now the complete "Daria" DVD series is finally out, and I'm just happy to be able to hang out with Daria and her best friend Jane Lane once more (and catch a glimpse of Jane's brother, Trent, lead singer of Mystik Spiral and Daria's mega-crush.) All I have to say is: LIFE IS AWESOME ONCE AGAIN.
The episode where the holidays hide out with Daria and she wonders if they're part of "an alternative lifestyles parade":
And of course, the video for Mystik Spiral's "Freakin' Friends"!
And more Mystik Spiral, because it's just too g-damn funny!
