A Pizza Holiday for Daria Fandom!

It's National Pizza with Everything (except Anchovies) Day! Trufen of Our Awesome Heroine, Jane Lane, you know what to do. Even Daria would approve.

One hundred sixty-nine years ago, the greatest sculptor of the modern age, Auguste Rodin, was born. One of his most famous works was parodied in the final Daria movie, Is It College Yet? (It was the gorilla statue Daria was given as an award, posed in the manner of The Thinker.) Rodin has something to do with a certain fanfic, too. Great role model for Jane. For art, I mean, not for his personal life, which was whacked out.

Princess Grace of Monaco was also born this day in history, 80 years ago, but she is mentioned here only because her birthday appears on the Sick Sad Life Planner DVD with a relevant quote from Brittany, who is clearly not well versed in royalty issues.

  • Pinhead has posted two quite interesting views of Daria, if she had continued to wear the clothing she did while living in Highland (a la Beavis and Butt-head). Weird. Kinda makes you think. The black-and-red outfit works better than the yellow one, I must admit, but the green-and-black was better. Daria's an "Autumn" and pulls off the latter very well.
  • The great and wonderful Anne D. Bernstein has more artwork to display.
Stay tooned 4 moar. Still early yet.

I can't get to Angst Guy's fanfics, either! I'm starting to freak out here!
