Where Would I Be...

...without Landon Liboiron? :)

Heyy. We think you're awesome<3 Tell us, what do you think of Degrassi? (Sorry if I sound like a reporter lol) by DegrassiPwns

 I think Degrassi is amazing. haha.
Not just because I'm on it ;)

It just shows and reflects on some teenagers lives,
and if someone sees it, and there's a situation similar to theirs that they're going through,
if it would help them in any way,
that's the gratification, just knowing it's helped someone.

Formspring.me is definitely the new black ;) 

[EDIT 2:59 PM, 2/23/10] We also sent an anonymous message that said:

have you checked out www.degrassipwns.blogspot.com ? we obsess over you on occasion ;) 

And Landon said:

I see no one's figured out my birth date yet ;)


P.S. A special congratulation from us to Samantha Munro who's getting her braces off on the 9th!  (Presumably of March!)

Just so you all know, I got mine off yesterday :D Life=good.

What The Fish?

So, recently, Melinda Shankar said in a recent interview that there would be 48 episodes in season 10.  I thought she was either deranged or lying because that is A LOT of Degrassi.  And then Stephen Stohn (or "The Exec"). 

The Degrassi episodes this year will be half-hour episodes.. and will take place over a full year…

Now we are getting a possible 24 hours of Degrassi taking place over a full DCS school-year.  I have no idea what the fish is happening, so I figure as long as there is a season 10, I'm good. :)

In The Zone

That's right!  Another TWO Degrassi stars have tweeted us!  Check Scott Paterson and Melinda Shankar off the list ;)

In case you forgot or missed it, the following people have tweeted us:

Andrea Lewis (Hazel)
Judy Jiao (Leia)
Raymond Ablack (SAV!)
Melinda Shankar (Alli)
Scott Paterson (Johnny)


P.S. Word on the street is that JJ is going to post something soon ;)

P.P.S.  For your convenience, I'll just post what Melinda and Scott said:

From us to Melinda:

@melindashankar Heyy! Wanna tweet us just once?

@DegrassiPwns of course i do! thank you for the love and support xo

@melindashankar You're ah-mazing :D And in case you didn't get our tweet a few days back, happy birthday! much love<3

@ScayP Heyy what's up? We <3 you!

@DegrassiPwns well thanks! :) hope you kids are doing well :)

Sorry! I'm Back!

Okay, so some nonsense and blah has been going on and I have been unable to blog, but I'm backkk!  It's kinda late to post about LoveGames, and Mango's review is pretty good anyway, I wouldn't be able to do better.  So... give me a sec to think, I'll post something in a second, I promise.

Much love,

Friday, February 19, 2010


So I was on formspring.me and was feeling awesome so I (anonymously) sent this to Landon Liboiron:

i love you :) 

And he wrote back!!

I love you, too! :)

If he only knew who we were... 
I suppose that counts as him talking to us, so next comes Adamo Angelo Ruggiero... Look out ;)

Buon Compleanno

Happy Birthday to Melinda Shankar!


This is most definitely our shortest post ever :)  Feel special, Melinda.

The Raymond-Mango Alliance

Oh my goodness gracious, guys and dolls.

It happened.  Today!  Only a few hours ago!  (I was at swim practice!)

You ready for this?


See, I was inspired by Judy Jiao's tweet, so I was like:

@RayAblack You are ah-mazing and complete me :) Tweet us and I *might* leave you alone ;) ~Mango

@DegrassiPwns I'm only tweeting you because I don't want to be left alone. What's up?

Breaking News at Fort Twitter


No, not Raymond Ablack.


@DegrassiPwns I think so! That's pretty much how I spent V-day too. Olympics + movies, haha :)

Favorite Things

casting for Degrassi today. Should be fun. I know who my favorites are...

Sunday, February 14, 2010


Yeahh... I set up a Formspring for us, (1) because everyone seems to have one, (2) it's easier than Twitter, and (3) it's anonymous, so you can ask us anything!

On a side note... The guy who played that beef-jerky Dean on Degrassi is in I Love You, Beth Cooper!

TeenNick is clearly confused.

So I'm sitting here, seriously trying to write my Love Games review (it's coming, I promise) when my sister decides to take a Degrassi quiz on TeenNick, distracting me.  So anyway, she took a quiz about how big a fan of Degrassi you are and got the following result: 

Now, being a Degrassi blogger, I figured that counts as expressing myself.  I figured I'd take the quiz and see if I got similar results.  Unfortunately, I got as follows.

Um... hello?  Maybe the snow has confused TeenNick.com.  Really?  Do you really think I'm not a huge Degrassi fan?  Seriously?  I'm posting about Degrassi at 11:09 at night on my DegrassiPwns blog and if Twitter wasn't such a spaz I'd be tweeting about Degrassi on my Degrassi twitter and I got pissed about how my computer doesn't recognize Degrassi as a word so I put it in the computer dictionary!  If anything, I'm obsessed with Degrassi to an unhealthy degree.  I can probably type Degrassi in my sleep and spell it correctly.  I can name all the episodes of seasons 8 and 9 in sequential order and titles of the first and last episode of every other.  I know which season and in which episode each character was introduced and I know the names of all the actors if IMDb or TeenNick thinks they're important enough.  I know the name of that guy Marco was flirting with in "Moonlight Desires" who was only on screen for about two minutes (his name is Mike, by the way).  I know the name of every character listed in the closing credits, first and last name.  Last time I checked, that is a) probably not the healthiest thing ever and b) a clear indicator of a Degrassi fan.  TeenNick, I bite my thumb at you (its the nerdy way of giving someone the finger... oh, Shakespearean references, you make my heart sing... what?  At least I thrive in areas outside of Degrassi-related knowledge, right?)

Oh well.  Good night.

All new Degrassi, coming soon.

Only on TeenNick.

I'm using bold print and a different font so you can see my opinion versus the things in the promo.  So, yeah.  This is intense stuff, like Alli said.  They haven't announced a set date for the new episodes, so JJ and I are staring down our televisions and rapidly emailing Chairman Nick Cannon.

Update-o on the YouTube Front

Hey guys and dolls!  I completely forget to tell you guys this!

melindashankarTV became friends with [MY USERNAME HERE] (2 weeks ago)

Melinda Shankar friended me on YouTube! :)

Now all I need is Soundspeed and Landon Liboiron's acceptances...

We have a snow day today, so I'm about 95% sure JJ or I will whip up something before tonight.

Much love, more later. (MLML)

Let's Play a Love Game

Will love make the player... give up the game?

Sorry, I just find that pure genius :)

I also apologize for the lame-o title.  And for generating a review of this EP but JJ is away for the weekend so I guess it's up to me anyways.

I'm basically going to type up my notes from Waiting For a Girl Like You, then Somebody...

Waiting For a Girl Like You

Ooh, matchmaker forms!  Our school does those every year, except Degrassi's questions are probably more than "How do you like your eggs?".

One word... SAV!  Even with his hair messed up, he still looks ah-mazing :)

OMG! They took Kelly out of the credits! Poor Ashoona ;)

"Latin AP?  Killing me too."  I'm am SO going to start saying AP after the subject.  Where we live, everyone says "AP Spanish" or "AP Earth Science" (affectionately known as APES).  "Spanish AP" makes me sound awesome.

Earth to Declan, the Tessas?  So not Holly J.'s type.  And the famous, "You like low maintenance.  Date a Honda."  B R I L L I A N T !

Leia: Did you hear how Danny talks to me?
Chantay: I'm sure he's just stressed about the test.
^ Uh-huh.  Yeah right, Chantay.  I love your earrings, though.  Brownie points there.

"911 text?"  I really love Fiona.  Although she doesn't exactly have a purpose, she has the most ah-mazing sense of style (which you would think would rub off onto Declan).  Buh-yoo-tee-ful dress :)

"And that is what we call niche marketing." A niche market is a focused, targetable portion of a market.  Mr. Simpson made this connection because Declan asked very specific questions which he knew would lead only to Holly J.

One brownie point for Declan, I love his striped sweater ;) I wonder if he really did meet the Dalai Lama, because I really want to meet the Dalai Lama, and have a conversation over chai tea or crumpets or whatever he feasts upon.  And wait... k-a-r-m-a for Decs :) Sauce on the pants!!

"Maybe... talk to her, just tell her how you feel.  Girls love that."  Oh, Sav.  We do love that.  How'd you know?

Brownie points for Holly J., the silent treatment is the way to be.

Declan: Someone leave a sandwich in there?
Holly J.: Bloody Glee club.
^ GLEE!  I bet you someone from the Degrassi writers group saw JJ's Degrassi vs. Glee comparison post and put that in there.  YES!

"I wrote a poem called 'Melancholy Turtle'."  At least he writes poetry!  That's totally enough to go on!

Alright kids, it's time to kill Declan!!


"Behind every powerful woman is a man who... better be cool with it."  Way to twist "Behind every powerful man is a strong woman".  Girls rule :)

"Spontaneous meetings are fun."  Take a walk on the evil side of high school, Holly J.  Bask in it while you can.

^ This is just about the best way you can skip class ^

Leave it to Dave to humiliate Connor.  That kid really bothers me.  Dave, that is.

Mrs. Laura Coyne... portrayed by Joy Tanner, who I recognized right away as from (*drumroll*) Life With Derek!  Oh, the affiliates :)

Well, as if it couldn't get anymore awkward, that guy had to start snapping photos.  Smooth like broken glass.

"I've never seen you with a problem you can't solve!"  Okay, JJ, in this scenario, Jane does pwn over my Sav.

BURN FOR ETHAN!  I hated his hair anyways.  Numbers don't lie, man!!

Holly Jeanette!  That's what the J stands for!  Now all we need is for KC's parents to show up out of nowhere and tell us what his initials stand for!

And the episode ends with "We Are", performed by Tupelo Honey, written by Tyler Dionocky, Dan Davidson, Steve Vincent, Matt Landry, Greg Williamson, and Jeff Dalziel.  I'm going to go buy that on iTunes now.  (*Note as of 2/9/10: I searched over and o-v-e-r and o v e r on iTunes and they do not sell "We Are".  I cried - internally.  Sorry if I just popped anyone's balloon...)

After spending almost three hours on this post (I get distracted easily), I simply must go to teennick.com and watch this EP again.

Ciao, bellas!


P.S. I changed the title of this post (2/9/10) because JJ published one with the same title way back in December of '09.

Love Games = tonight :)

Degrassi, I'm sure, will surprise us as always.

Oh, it never gets old!

I'm not quite sure what else to write here...

El Primer

Of course it's the first day of the month, so you readers are at a new starting point in your times.  And undoubtedly, I have no decent ideas for a blog post. 

So yeah.

Guess what?


And then after that, we Americans must wait a while...

BUT NONETHELESS (awesome word), NEW DEGRASSI!!! :)

Now, if you'll all look at the insanely awesome photo:

Seriously, this is one of the only times I must say I love Anya.

Additionally, please proceed to swoon over Emma's ah-mazing shirt:

Chao for now, loves :)
