This is a trailer for a fake Daria movie, but it is our responsibility to make the real thing happen. Not that Daria would give a shit, but still.
Surely everyone at your Halloween party found your Charlie Sheen costume terribly clever, but you should be kicking yourself for not dressing up as Daria. SoDespair's deviantart sets a high bar for Lawndale High cosplay with accurate outfits and appropriately cynical glares.
This week MTV celebrates its 30th anniversary, and over the course of three decades the network has done nothing short of redefining pop culture. And lucky for us, quite a few ladies helped push the network ahead along the way. Herewith, a celebration of the ladies of MTV.
- Meet Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom's 12-day-old son, Flynn! He weighed 9lbs 12oz at birth, and Kerr says passing that giant was "a long, arduous and difficult labour." She nonetheless said no thanks to pain meds. [Kerr's Blog]
Marisa Meltzer: Eight years after Daria, "the super-smart, dry, withering, righteously angry girls are largely absent from pop culture. For every sassy adolescent...our current teen cultural landscape is clogged with heroines whose principal interest...are status and men."

It's taken MTV eight years, but Daria is finally going to be released on DVD in 2010. We can all let out a collective, monotone "Yay." To celebrate, we've compiled some of our favorite moments of the apathetic teen antihero.
