carlotacranz asked: Are you going to scan all the Sassy magazines? Do you take contributors scans? I am positive I still have the Kurt and Courtney issue in a box somewhere.
I have the Kurt and Courtney issue. It’s one of my prize possessions!
I will definitely take contributor scans because I don’t have all the issues - and people are CLAMORING for the Twin Peaks fashion spread.
vuvuzelabutton asked: Did you know about Dirt magazine? It was Sassy for boys, and I remember it being really good, but short lived.
Spike Jonze was the editor but I never got my hands on an issue. Priceless 90s artifacts now!
dianne727 asked: i seriously geeked out when i saw this. somehow i think all my old mags are in a box in my hoarder mother's garage... any chance you have an issue where the "cute band alert" was toad the wet sprocket? i'd love to see that again.
I’ll look for that band alert! I should post more of those in general.
Full disclosure: the problem with some of my issues is sometimes pieces are missing from pages, I was probably doing some teenage scrapbooking (whee).
whataboutprom asked: Super cool blog! I was an intern at 'Sassy' during my sophomore year of college (fall 1993-summer 1994). I met so many of my heroes, including Jane, Christina, Diane, Margie, Mary Ann, etc. I was able to work with Jane to write her editor's letter, about the interns, including Chloe Sevigny. And while there, I read the first issue of 'Nickelodeon,' where I wound up working for several years. Needless to say, it was a dream come true in many many ways! Anyway! Keep up the good work! Stay Sassy!
Thank you so much for the note - and you are absolutely lucky to have had such an experience in the print industry. To say that I’m jealous is an understatement. I would love to take the T.A.R.D.I.S. to the Sassy Magazine office in those years.
I’ll try to post some scans from your time there if I have ‘em!
