She’s trying to grow up on her own, desperately searching for a place to belong or some sort of sign that she’s on the right path, that where she is now is where she’s supposed to be.

Mathew Klickstein, the author of “Slimed!: An Oral History of Nickelodeon’s Golden Age”, has brought together over 250 of the creative forces that helped create Nickelodeon. Through a series of hundreds of interviews, he is able to detail just what made Nickelodeon’s Golden Age so golden.
Now, together with Nick legend Marc Summers, Mathew is bringing these people together for a one of a kind special event. On September 27th, creators, stars, writers, producers and musicians from classic Nick shows of the 80s and 90s, will appear for a once in a lifetime celebration.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Mathew about his new book and the Slimed! event. A couple of months in the making, I’m beyond thrilled to finally share it with you guys.
If you grew up on 90s Nickelodeon, this news is for you. Not only do you have flawless taste, but if you’re in the New York City area, you can now be apart of a special event 25 years in the making. It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since Nickelodeon began. The network changed the landscape of children’s television and helped mold a generation.
I am so grateful to be apart of that generation. It’s not the same nowadays.
Partly because the quality of television isn’t the same anymore. Things like iCarly, Hannah Montana, and One Direction are of no interest to me.
I loved growing up watching people like Marc Summers. Seriously, I love him. He’s my hero.
BIG NEWS for Stephen King’s fan. As today marks the debut of Under the Dome (adapted from his novel published in 2009), his next book Doctor Sleep gets a teaser.
Doctor Sleep is not just the simple new King’s book it’s also the sequel of one of his most popular novel: The Shining. The novel became not only a literary hit but also cinema classic with Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation featuring the incredible performance from Jack Nicholson.
Planned to go on sale September 24, the novel will follow Dan Torrance who is now a middle-aged man still haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel. Years after the events of The Shining, he is settled in a New Hampshire Town where he works in a nursing home using his remnant shining power to provide the final comfort to the dying. Over there, he becomes for the patient the “Doctor Sleep”.
