Bad pun, bad pun. I meant BOP the magazine and not the song popularized by Hanson. The picture I included here was my first and last issue of BOP, the teenage magazine in the nineties.
I used to go gaga over the free pinups of the teen stars. Of course back then in the mid-nineties when I was in the sixth or seventh grade the movies Clueless, Now and Then, Camp Nowhere, and Mighty Ducks were in VOGUE! Plus the TV shows Sabrina, Sweet Valley High, Moesha, and the Fresh Prince of Belair was deemed cool by the Cool Crowd. Wanting to be ‘in’ and not left behind, I rode the wave of watching foreign shows.
As a teen, I used to have daydreams that starred Devon Sawa, Andrew Keegan, Luis Mendoza (that kid who can’t stop in Mighty Ducks 2), and Jonathan Jackson. All of them at one point of the daydream, had to profess their undying love for me. And we lived *ulp* happily ever after! Tsk, tsk, cheesiness abounds.
I’m sure all you Kidswereus readers are smart enough to figure out why this magazine’s popularity waned. Won’t you join us in enumerating the why? The funniest and most creative wins!
