Zach Morris Is Trash

I’m probably late to the “Zach Morris Is Trash” party, but that just means there’s a backlog of these wonderfully narrated videos for me to enjoy. The premise? Zach Morris is actually a terrible character, and here is evidence. For the record, I was always more into Slater. [Kate Bernot]

French 75 cocktail

I’m one of those people who changes their cocktail order based on seasons. Red wine in the winter, white in the summer, brown liquor in the fall, lighter stuff in the spring. So today’s finally warm day here in Chicago got me to thinking about my favorite spring cocktail, the French 75. It basically combines a few of my favorite things, like champagne, lemon, and gin (my go-to warm-weather beverage). It’s fizzy, which I like, comes in a fancy glass with a twist, but is not so strong that I need to take a nap after the first one. Or even the second. I think we all feel like we’ve been waiting for spring forever this year, no matter where you live. So maybe try a French 75 the next time you’re out to celebrate. [Gwen Ihnat]


“Don’t Change Your Plans” by Ben Folds Five

Ben Folds Five was an important band in my life. I’ve written about it here for The A.V. Club, how it changed my relationship with the piano, an instrument forced upon to me and millions of Chinese children. “Don’t Change Your Plans” from their The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner album is my favorite song of their’s, and possibly my favorite song of all time. The Bacharach-esque flugelhorn solo gets me every time. [Kevin Pang]

Look, everyone — save for Mr. Belding and Screech — were terrible people in Saved by the Bell. Zack and Slater constantly at odds, cheating on significant others and trying to break each other up so they could date their respective girlfriends, money scams, Lisa being a materialistic spoiled brat, Jessie constantly being an emasculating power bitch in a poor excuse to illustrate feminism...all garbage people.

All Screech wanted was to be liked and Belding was trying to keep these sociopaths from burning down the school.
