Either way we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our readers! We really enjoy writing this blog and although we might not be putting out as much content as we have in the past (I mean what the hell happened to our Throwback Thursday videos?) we will keep on writing if you keep on reading. A special thanks to sites like The Credible Hulk who promote the shit out of our posts weekly. We really appreciate that. Thanks again for the all the support and please like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter and check out our YouTube page (before it gets shut down for another year and a half…that was fun).
Now this is some 90s Nostalgia people! Below is a clip from when Conan O’Brien (back in his Late Night days) visited Teen Beat Magazine (Oh yeah, Teen Beat Magazine!) too achieve his dream of being a Teen Idol. This video has all the 90s stuff you want: Posters of Leonardo DiCaprio, references to The Backstreet Boys, Hanson and Planet Hollywood, 90s style clothing and an interview with then teen idol David Gallagher! Yes David Gallagher! Formally of the hit TV show 7th Heaven and current guy who just served you your pumpkin latte at Starbucks. Enjoy!

This (short lived) magazine was published by Nintendo to target the woman demographic in the video game market. I have no idea why this failed, I mean, they made the consoles pink, they offered a game called “Cooking Mama 2” (apparently the first one was so successful they needed a second).

In this episode of The Nostalgia Blog we take a look back on Playboy Magazine and see if it still holds up. The results may surprise you…Enjoy!
