Dear listeners, we are well aware that we are middle-aged ladies, so we brought on young’un Kate Cornish from the North Star Roller Girls to discuss teen comedies!
(Okay, so we admit Kate is old enough to have PhD and we’re talking about teen comedies of the late 1990s, but hey! We’re trying!)
If you feel brave enough to drink along with two roller girls and Melissa, we suggest The Gaucho Club Oak Cask Malbec. It is tasty and its Argentinian ways pleased us greatly.

See Hear Party:
Chez Zee in Austin, TX:
Of all the movies I was subjected to because my wife wanted to see them, “Clueless” is among the best. The slang may not hold up, but in a weird sort of way that doesn’t really matter. The whole thing’s just adorable and full of heart and snark.
I have yet to subject myself to “Hackers,” mainly because I suspect I’d be cringing almost the entire time. Partly it would be, “oh gods, now I remember, that’s what technology was like back then, SO PRIMITIVE.” Mostly, I suspect, it would be “WHAT NO IT DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT ARE YOU PEOPLE MENTAL” and maybe occasionally I’d be distracted by Angelina Jolie but probably not often enough to make the movie bearable.
Helluva soundtrack, though. Or set of soundtracks. Whichever.
