It's the April 1990 Slumber Party, which means we've gotten into our sleeping bags despite having had WAY too much Jolt Cola. After sharing our results in the Rate Your Movie Knowledge quiz, we're playing your 20+ calls, on subjects ranging from the sound of dot matrix printers, how Jason Priestley's cuteness defies pixelation, and what criteria you must meet to join Dave at The Olive Garden.

Is Tremors actually a better movie than its marketing would have you believe? Will new Young Guns make the Young Guns sequel more compelling than the original? Who exactly is ruining the scene outside Grateful Dead shows? And why didn't Jason Priestley talk to Christina -- surely Sister Kate couldn't be keeping him that busy?

The April 1990 issue may have fewer Teen Life features, but what they lack in number they make up for in discussion value. Mike counsels us on how not to talk to guys. A story on an anorexic girl basically leaves her out entirely. Christina is stunned to learn that dolphins...may not want to swim with humans? All this and more, from Gilda Marx to the family restaurant Dave is deprived from visiting, awaits you in our April 1990 Teen Life episode!

The March 1990 quiz dares readers to "Rate Your Self-Centeredness," and we dropped everything to do a deep analysis on life's main characters: us! In fact, because the voicemailbox was a bit empty this time around -- maybe the heat wave fried your phones? -- that we were able to focus on our responses to the quiz for twice as long as we normally do! Then, we flipped over to your calls on topics including Buns Of Steel, a Sassy cameo in Christmas Vacation, how far back our lives on the internet actually exist, among many other concerns.

Sassy's second birthday coincides with prom, and this issue is on it, showing you how to get ready (with...a bodybuilding magazine?) and one ad full of Merry Go Round's weirdest dresses. There's also a great spread on Audrey Hepburn as a fashion muse, and a weird spread on environmentally conscious fashion that doesn't quite think things through. We're also learning which natural beauty products passed Sassy editors' testing, what Climax Springs is, and how friggin' many soap stars had their own 900 numbers in this era. Put on your most diaphanous sleeves and get into it!

Sassy embarks upon its third year with a fun, kicky feature on a girl whose parents committed her to a mental institution for what sure seem like spurious reasons. Christina gets heteronormative about one-night-stands, starting with the assumption that you, a girl, might not want to have one. A list of the 20 coolest women hasn't aged well the whole way through (although "Mom" probably still rocks). All this plus another weird short story, Young MC abandoning his whole ethos to pretend he doesn't use pick-up lines, all the ginseng news you can handle, and much much more!

First off, we take February 1990 "Rate Your Willpower" quiz. If you think you may know what kind of tangents that leads us to, you are almost certainly wrong. Then we play your latest voicemails, in which you tell us about your own experiments with Sassy's beauty hacks, your musings about which kind of medical procedure would be least terrible if interrupted by an earthquake, what it's like to get scammed by a poetry contest, and so much more!

Canoodle with your boyfriend while you're both swathed in embroidery! Dump a bottle of cranberry juice on your head and see what happens!

The February 1990 What Now claims to be a "Low-Venom Edition," then lashes out at Combos and Child's Play for no good reason on the very same page, so we're not sure what to believe. (We aren't going to "bail" on it, though we now know that's a slang term we could use if we did!) After we learn about Alyssa Milano's Japanese pop album, illicit Norwegian skateboard imports, and so much more, it's on to Watch It, where Courage Mountain (a Heidi take with Charlie Sheen, of all people) and The War Of The Roses get surprisingly good reviews, and Steel Magnolias gets one that's surprisingly mid?! Neill renews his Australian passport with a rave about Max Q, the self-titled Michael Hutchence side project début; we play you some so that you know Neill is wrong, as usual. One To Watch notches another one for the W column, and then Mike makes up a person who hates rap, gets mad at them, and tries to get them on board by profiling four positive artists. Which one sideswipes Public Enemy? The answer may surprise you! Listen and enjoy!

Thirteen months have gone by since Sassy crowned Rinnan its first Sassiest Girl In America, so it's time to pick a new one from a notably smaller field of finalists. Did we agree with the judges' choice? (Would we bring it up here if we did?) Catherine reports on a woman who was divorced before she was old enough to vote. Kim France makes her debut with a confusing piece on "dude defects." Karen tries her hand at fiction again. All this, plus What He Said about fantasy women, an It Happened To Me that's more It Happened To Dad, a Stuff You Wrote that inspires musical interpretation, and much much more!

After the "Rate Your Ho-Ho-Ho-ness" quiz discussion takes a surprisingly contentious turn, we play some of your latest calls! Topics include but are not limited to: Cher, Tori Spelling, the redheaded guy from Workaholics, Comedy Central, Cher, chambray, Fuddrucker's, Skyline Chili, Hatchet, Belk, and how many eye puff tests one person can experience in a day and still live to tell about it.

One decade's ending and another one's starting: maybe your old aesthetic should end and you should try out a new one? The December 1989/January 1990 double issue has some ideas! What if you dressed like Lucille Ball, or a crow? What if you glued sequins to a t-shirt, or your face? What if you gave yourself dreadlocks??? ...Actually, don't do that one. Elsewhere, readers are calling out fur that turns out to be faux; a feature writer keeps her job thanks to fax machines; and the whole staff is giving you Christmas presents that cost them absolutely nothing and that they didn't even edit.

The pop culture topics of the December 1989/January 1990 issue fall into a few clear categories. Want to learn about age-appropriate boys? There are What Now items on Fred Savage and Jared Rushton. Want to get confused by feelings of horniness for unbelievably hot men? There's a shirtless Patrick Swayze and Billy Wirth, the latter apparently One To Watch. Want to be really mean about people who are wealthier and more powerful than you will ever be? There's a swipe at Cher for being old (at 43), and a WHOLE bunch of snark in the results of the entertainment poll -- including the magazine's editors snarking at YOU and your choices! We, however, think you're just great, so listen to what we have to say about all of the above, and more!

Sassy's first and only double issue kicks off with a classic bummer: the story of teenager Billy Rosebud, whose murder cops only bothered to look into after his own family spent years doing most of the investigating for them. From there, things lighten up, as Karen tells us what to expect from a gynecologist appointment, Christina walks us through a truly cathartic crying fit, and Mary Kaye attempts to help us save the planet. (Whoops.) Plus: a fiction story about a dad's hypocrisy (yes, we know, that's all fiction for teen girls); a stark warning about extended-wear contacts; the truth about hickeys, and much much more!

Then it's on to several months' worth of calls on such subjects as whether physical therapy is a scam, how to lord a birthstone ring over your haters, Crocs, tarot, Lady Gaga, and what is and isn't necessary when it comes to public pooping.

Having bid adieu to our dear guest co-hosts Kim and Megan, we welcome back Pam for the November 1989 Fashion Etc. episode. Fashion spreads tell us how to dress like a pilgrim, or a rodeo queen (?), or in a jacket. Karen does an exposé on how worthless your expensive modeling school education actually is. The lone beauty story tries to show us what...smells......look like. There's also beauty gadget trials, an update on how to wear your jeans, curly hair makeovers, some very emotional letters, and so much more!

Megan and Kim wind up their guest-co-hosting gigs with a bumper crop of pop culture topics. What Now takes us through The Keeper, "Bettys," acceptable crush objects Simon de la Brosse and Ethan Hawke, and Unacceptable crush object Leaf Phoenix. We attempt to understand the plot of Nightmare On Elm Street 5 and the appeal of Queen Of Hearts. We celebrate Mike's extremely correct five-star review of the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique, and why the youth still know Tears For Fears. Then it's on to another successful One To Watch pick, and a feature all about every cool late '80s girl's object of disdain: New Kids On The Block. Join us as we go through the issue Step By Step!

Megan and Kim return to help us cover all the Teen Life topics of the November 1989 issue! After racing through the lead bummer feature about the passes rich white criminals get, we discuss some solid advice from Christina on what to do -- and, more importantly, what NOT to do -- when you get dumped. The winners of a photography contest surprise us with their competence. Some guys DON'T surprise us with their shallow thinking about whether women should be subject to a military draft. There's also soup, Harvard, anemia, adoption, a bumper crop of Stuff You Wrote, and oh so very much more!
