Thiessen’s introduction in Season 5 as Valerie Malone brought the drama on-screen. 
After Doherty’s exit from the Fox soap as Brenda Walsh

Costume designer for The Nanny talks fashion + C.C. Babcock update

-Brenda Cooper is the woman behind many of the iconic looks that Fran Fine wore during the shows first 4 seasons.

-She is the only person on the show to win an emmy

-Would have to pull 50 outfits per episode, 6 were just for Fran.

-Heavily inspired by the 40s, 50s, 60s

-In order to keep Fran stylish and not show to much skin while she was "working" she added the iconic turtleneck look that Fran would wear under many of her dresses.

-Took about 8-12 hrs a day just to shop for the show and about every piece would end up altered in some way.

-Would find clothes at Kmart and alter them, even found one of the CCs jackets in the trash (Niles would die to get a joke in)

-All 6 seasons are currently streaming on HBO Max

Twilightcore Is Now A Thing

The next evolution of the recent 2000s nostalgia resurgence is likely Twilightcore. What is that? It's everything related to "Twilight," the series of vampire novels by Stephanie Meyer.

Singer Tessa Violet just debuted a Twilight-themed music video styled after the baseball game in the first Twilight movie. Peter Faccinelli guest stars in the vid.

Did you like Twilight when it was a thing?

Sort of
I liked making fun of it. Does that count?

The Wall Street Journal talks about how kpop reinvented virtual concerts during covid (Ft SHINee)

In the video , WSJ goes behind the scenes to a SHINee concert and to see how kpop groups are reinventing the way to make virtual concerts .

- Global revenue by concerts last year dropped 70% because of the pandemic.

- Kpop companies are trying to find ways to reboot the concert industry in the middle of a pandemic that is still far from ending (at least in some countries)

- Dream Maker Entertainment works with SM Entertainment for their Beyond Live Concerts, they create stage designs using immersive technologies that enhance visual effects in online concerts.

- The Dream Maker CEO says they want to deliver a show that can't be pulled off at a live offline concert, so it's a different experience.

- DME has produced 11 of these shows for kpop bands like: TWICE, NCT , Super Junior, and others.

- This is also a good alternative for international fans of those kpop bands , that won't be able to see their favorite group in an offline concert because they don't go to their countries.

- There are new revenue opportunities because they sell cheaper tickets to a bigger audience (SHINee's Beyond Live concert sold 130k tickets)

- SME CEO didn't say how much were the profits but he said the venture has been economically viable.
