I recently made the mistake of telling my so-called friend Kate Dries [Ed. Note: and the rest of the world] that, circa 1997-8, I heavily resembled Zac Hanson, the youngest member of the band Hanson.


Kate demanded side-by-side photographic proof and once I provided it, she—along with Emma Carmichael—asked me to blog about it. I said “uh” and they said I had to.

They also asked me to tell you that the summer before or after I looked like Zac, I cut my hair short and looked confusingly like Jonathan Taylor Thomas. A lot of people accidentally referred to me as “son,” which is fine because gender? It’s a construct, babe.

I never did.

All I ever wanted was to be Christina Ricci in Casper so I could make out with Devon Sawa.


Devon reports that he and co-star Christina Ricci were never romantically involved, despite playing opposite one another in two excellent kid/coming-of-age movies.
