Daria and Her One True Career Goal

"Cafe Disaffecto" aired for the first time 12 years ago today. "The Lost Girls" appeared 10 years ago today. What's interesting is that in both episodes, Daria attracts attention because of her writing skills. She creates a riot in one and gives Val conniptions in the other, but it was her writing that got everything going each time. Maybe she really is destined to be "a bitter, angry hack who starts fights fistfights at cocktail parties" (The Daria Diaries). That would be wild, wouldn't it?

In fact, this idea is so interesting that I think I will start an Iron Chef thread on PPMB about it, for all you creative writers and perverts out there. Click the link and make Daria proud.

I consider you to be equivalent to a minor deity for maintaining this sort of site long after the show's end.

Just wanted that to be known

Additionally, if you ever come upon an evil plan in the dankest, most awkward crevices of your mind to convince/effectively force Glenn Eichler and co. to make more shows, I'm a willing footsoldier. If at the very least you find a workable method to drum up public interest (up to and including the use of lurid threats and physical violence, as long as it's not entirely gratuitous), I'm once again ready for recruitment.


Honestly, great site. I'm glad to have found it and look forward to reading it in the future. Thanks!

Thanks. Who knows, maybe it will happen. We can always hope.

The fact that the flip books on the MTV site were brought back up would seem to indicate somebody over there gave an order that reflected a decision to resurrect. Maybe they got a deal worked out on the music rights problem. Then again, maybe somebody over there decided to mess with our heads again....
