You remember Daria Morgendorffer. If you don’t, she’s in high-school and she’s smarter than everybody else. What she is is just a normal reaction to the external environment. Oh and did I mention that she used to be on MTV?
Now, I know what you’re thinking: Beavis and Butthead. I have only two words for you: No Way! She was created to put those two into place. Witty, creative, cutting- edge rational; no wonder she’s an outcast.
People said she had issues. She didn’t dress up – precisely the reason for which she stood out – , she didn’t have any friends – except for a non- conventional artist, Jane – and make-up simply just didn’t fit with the whole Daria thing.
Oh, and the soundtrack was… (you know, I’m actually having trouble finding the most appropriate adjective for this context) I think I should let it fester for a while in my brain; it’ll come to me. Instead of an adjective how about I give you some proper nouns? Aerosmith, Daft Punk, Rage Against The Machine, Alice in Chains… and of course, Daria was all this and much more. But if you were looking for a fortunate compilation of the ’90s music, go no further!
Let’s sit back, relax, unwind and rewind some of the past MTV cartoon hits, some of the inspired music of the ’90s.
What I personally find amazing is the fact that this show does not cease to intrigue when the credits are unrolling. In fact, that’s when things get interesting. It may be just me, or those alter-egos make these vintage characters come alive (Alive I tell you!), sometimes even better than 3D.
Instead of a conclusion, I leave you with a poll to vote your favorite Daria moments.
P.S. Don’t forget that
There is no aspect, no facet and no moment of life that cannot be improved with pizza!
