We are where nostalgia lives

Cassandra Peterson is better known as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She became famous after hosting Elvira’s Movie Macabre, where she hosted a special that showed horror movies each week. She dresses dark and vampy, but her voice is more valley girl and she is hilarious.

30 years since her first film debuted, Cassandra is definitely considering doing a sequel to Mistress of the Dark. During a recent Q&A on Instagram, many fans were asking about a sequel. She admitted that many fans ask about a sequel, so she is giving it some serious thought!

Do You Think She Should Do An Elvira Sequel?

Cassandra debuted the character in the early 1980s as a horror host who popped in with comedy bits. She became an icon in pop culture for her humor and her sex appeal, often wearing skimpy outfits. Elvira: Mistress of the Dark hit theaters in 1988. It was a comedy about Elvira inheriting an old mansion in a conservative town. Of course, the residents didn’t approve of Elvira. There was also a movie in 2001 called Elvira’s Haunted Hills, which was a prequel. We would love to see a sequel!

Fans also asked Cassandra if Elvira’s Movie Macabre would ever be available on Netflix. She said she was working on it! We hope it does get to Netflix so we can watch it again. She also confirmed that she is trying to sell a script she wrote about Elvira to Netflix or Hulu.

Cassandra Has Been Indecisive About The Idea

While she seems open to the idea of a sequel, Cassandra has admitted at past conventions that the Elvira movies have become cult classics. She said it would seem weird to make another one now. She worries that fans would compare the new movie to the classic and wouldn’t like it as much.

She compared it to Pee-Wee Herman movies. Pee-Wee Herman recently got a special on Netflix and many people compared it to the first one and criticized it. She doesn’t want that to happen to Elvira. No matter what she decides, we stand by Cassandra and still love Elvira!

Payless Files For Bankruptcy And Will Close All Stores

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Say it isn’t so! Another retailer is set to close all their stores as they file for bankruptcy. Lately, the term “bankruptcy” seems to be a common phrase when it comes to retail stores. Toys “R” Us was the biggest bankruptcy showdown, as they went completely out of business and closed all U.S. stores by the end of 2018.

Stores like Sears, Gymboree, and more have been filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy as they drown in millions of dollars of debt and being unable to stay afloat with the competition from other retailers and online. The Payless company has yet to comment with an official statement.

Payless currently has 3,600 stores worldwide and has employed more than 18,000 associates. With this being said, there’s no telling if any of them will receive severance pay as the company has yet to comment or provide additional details. They plan to properly file for bankruptcy later this month.

According to Reuters, the company has been seeking a buyer but is failing, prompting thoughts of liquidation. Of course, after declaring bankruptcy they can always continue seeking a buyer, but they have been riddled with debt since 2012. Similar to the Toys “R” Us fiasco, it’s not certain many vendors will want to do business with a company that owes so much money.

WBKB

The debt came from a 2012 buyout and the company originally declared bankruptcy back in 2017. The company re-emerged a few months later despite this.

Payless was founded in 1956 in Topeka, KS on the same basis that we know Payless to be now; selling quality shoes at reasonable prices. The company’s mission, according to the website, is “To be the Go To, Get More, Pay Less shoe store for our target customers.” The company is a private company owned by a group that includes Alden Global Capital, Invesco Senior Secured Management, and Octagon Credit Investors, according to Cleveland 19 News.

Should Payless declare bankruptcy and not be able to find a buyer, we can now say goodbye to another falling retailer. We don’t know about you, but we’ll miss getting our shoes for a seriously good deal. We wish the best for the company!

Tonight’s Episode Of ‘Last Man Standing’ Is Going To Be A Bit Different

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

If you saw one of our last articles about Last Man Standing, you know that it’s going to lose its Friday spot. If you’re still recovering from that blow, we actually have some good news that might help! Tonight’s episode is actually going to be a full hour long instead of the usual 30-minute segment.

The one-hour episode is actually due to quite the special occasion. Mike (Tim Allen) and his wife Vanessa’s (Nancy Travis) best friends are renewing their vows! The occasion will focus around Chuck (Jonathan Adams) and Carol (Tisha Campbell) who are renewing their vows in light of their 25th wedding anniversary and the whole gang is involved.

Fox

According to TV Guide, Vanessa secures a spot as the Matron of Honor, and from what we can see in Fox network’s preview of the episode, it looks like Mike may the officiant for the vow renewal. Here’s where the trouble comes in. TV Guide has the perfect preview for the episode:

As you’ll see in the clip above, Chuck and Carol have at least one Baxter on their mind for the ceremony: Vanessa (Nancy Travis). When she shares to her husband that their BFFs are thinking of recruiting them to participate in their new nuptials, Mike (Tim Allen) naturally jumps to the conclusion that this shindig is why Chuck has been trying to reach him lately. But could Mike be wrong? From the sounds of it, Vanessa’s not so sure their pals want to include both her and Mike, which could certainly make for a very awkward reception.

Fox

Yikes! Could you imagine how awkward it would be if your spouse was in the ceremony and you imposed as an officiant? Regardless of anything, it’s sure to be quite the interesting episode and we’re so excited to see how it turns out! As previously mentioned, the sneak preview for the episode via Fox’s YouTube channel gives us the idea that Mike actually turns out to be the officiant.

Only time will tell! And you can catch this episode of Last Man Standing during its usual Friday night time slot.

Fox

All of the show’s favorites, including Jay Leno (shown in the sneak preview as well) will be at the vow renewal ceremony. Will you?

Mom Writes A Warning About Horrible ‘Fish’ Smell In Son’s Room That Was Actually Melted Plastic

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Have you ever had a weird smell in your home? While sometimes these gross smells have a harmless cause like making fish for dinner or dirty gym socks, sometimes these smells point to something more dangerous. One mother found this out and shared the post to help others stay safe.

She posted that her son’s bedroom started smelling like fish. Put off by the smell, she deep cleaned his room and tried to figure out where the smell was coming from. Then suddenly, the smell was gone. She went on with her days but then was shocked when the fishy smell came back even stronger.

What Happened Next?

She decided to do some research to try to figure out what the smell was and where it was coming from. She found out that melting plastic from outlets can cause a fishy smell. Sure enough, she found an outlet in her son’s room that was hot and melting! Good thing she caught it before it started a fire. She had an electrician come out the same day to fix a bad wire in the outlet and replace the whole outlet.

What Smells Point To Something Dangerous?

So, fishy smells can mean that something electrical is wrong. If you smell fish and can’t figure out why, check all of the outlets and electric wires. If you start smelling rotten eggs, you could have a gas leak or a plumbing issue. Check if the smell is stronger from your drains or when the water is on. If so, it is likely a plumbing issue.

A gas leak is more dangerous. Since gas itself is odorless, the smell is a safety precaution so you know to exit the home and call a professional right away. As always, if you smell something gross and unusual in your home and can’t pinpoint it, call a professional for help. It could save you and your family.

Have you ever had an issue with a strange smell in your home that turned out to be something you would never expect? Have you ever had this same issue with your outlets? It is great that people post these things on social media so it can help someone else!

Michael Strahan Of ‘GMA’ Doesn’t Speak To Kelly Ripa Anymore

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Michael Strahan, who is now a full-time anchor on the show Good Morning America, is no longer on speaking terms with Kelly Ripa. The two worked together for four years on Live! With Kelly and Michael from 2012 to 2016. They had a very public fallout when Strahan announced that he was leaving the Live! team and would be moving onto GMA.

According to reports, Ripa was “blindsided” by the sudden announcement, which left her angry and confused. She missed a week of work to think about things with the show, a decision she claims she earned after having 26 years with the show. Ripa did return to the show with some stern words in reference to Strahan’s leaving.

ABC

“Toward the end of it all, we didn’t really communicate that much,” Ripa revealed directly after the fallout between her and Michael. “I kinda looked at it like, ‘It was what it was.’ I come from a business where you have to collaborate. The show was going well? We’re all winning. That’s all that matters to me.”

She then was on the hunt for a new co-host, which would end up being Ryan Seacrest, who is still her current co-host to this date.

ABC

Strahan did have some words of his own based on Ripa’s reaction to him leaving. “I wasn’t surprised by her reaction at all, but I can’t control somebody else’s actions,” he said at the time. “I was there four years, and it’s about more than just being in front of the camera.”

Despite all of this, Strahan still credits Ripa for helping him learn the ins and the outs of TV presenting, which in turn, helped build his skill set for eventually moving onto GMA. He does admit, though, that he hasn’t “spoken to her in a long time.”

ABC

Beginning in September 2016, Strahan became a full-time co-host for Good Morning America alongside Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, and Lara Spencer. Though Strahan wasn’t shocked by Ripa’s reaction, he did confirm, “I learned through all that went down with that, you can’t convince people to like you.”

Everything surely happens for a reason. Strahan has been excelling on his spot with GMA and Live! with Kelly and Ryan has also been doing exceptionally well. it was just meant to be that way!

Alan Alda Reveals The One Trick He Uses To Connect With People

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

When you’re accepting an award, the speech you give is everything. Some people are just too caught up in the excitement and their emotions to even get words out, while others are going off a list in their head of people to thank, hoping they don’t forget anyone. Alan Alda has his own plan to connect with his audience on a much larger basis than that.

He recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild, and people can’t stop talking about his speech. It was incredibly moving, thoughtful, and inclusive of his fellow actors and actresses all at the same time. With this being said, Alda recently revealed the one thing he uses to connect with people, especially during his speech.

YouTube

First, let’s start off with some key parts of Alan Alda’s speech that moved the audience. Upon accepting the award and, of course, thanking host Tom Hanks, he began his acceptance speech.

“You know, it’s really hard to describe to you what it feels like to look out and see my fellow actors, my colleagues, my heroes, to welcome me up here like this. It’s an extraordinary feeling,” he says. “The thing is this comes at a time when I’ve had a chance to look back on my life and to think about what it’s meant to be an actor. And I see more than ever now how proud I am to be a member of our brotherhood and sisterhood of actors.”

YouTube

“…To see life from another person’s point of view, another person’s vision of the world,” Alda further explains after stating that it’s an actor’s job to become another character and see the world from the character’s point of view. “And to let an audience experience that, it may never have been more urgent to see the world through another person’s eyes when a culture is divided so sharply. Actors can help. At least a little, just by doing what we do.”

By this point, Alda earns a round of applause from his fellow actors who agree with him. “And the nice part is, it’s fun to do!” he smiles, earning a few laughs from the audience as well.

YouTube

Alda actually did an interview with Inc.com and revealed his thoughts on the award and his acceptance speech. This is what he had to say in response:

“That award meant more to me than any award I’ve ever gotten, because it’s from fellow actors. You know, there’s a temptation to begin with a joke or something, and the more I thought about it, the more I thought, “I’m talking to people who are really going to see if I’m being authentic, if I’m saying something I care deeply about and really mean. And I’m not gonna be trivial. I’m gonna talk from the heart. I think they’ll appreciate it.”
