Another Jem Lover

Ever since I wrote about Jem and the Holograms back in September, I’ve gotten a steady trickle of Jem fans coming out of the closet and visting that page. I just received a fantastic, all-caps note from one ‘garagesalemary’. I don’t want to muddy my pretty page with all of those capital letters, but click on the ‘Continue reading’ link, because it’s worth it. Among others, it features the unlikely phrase ‘Jem check [sic] book cover’.

HI THERE I’M A BIG FAN OF JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS I STARTED WATCHING THE SHOW BACK IN 1985 WHEN I WAS 14 YEARS OLD NOW I’M 32 AN STELL LOVE JEM WHEN THE SHOW WENT OFF THE AIR IN 88 I WAS SO UPSET IT WAS LIKE HAVING YOUR CHILDHOOD TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU. BUT AS THE YEARS WENT BY AND I STARTED WORKING. I DID GET ALL THE JEM VIDEO,S FROM BLOCK BUSTER VIDEO STORE. AN THANK GOD I DID BECAUSE NOW THERE OUT OF PRINT.

    I saw the DVD set in the store this afternoon and giggled.

    No, I didn’t buy it. The PINK PANTHER boxed set and the third MATRIX movie were enough DVDs for me for one week. . .

    But a JEM Checkbook cover? I didn’t know many little girls growing up with their own checking account. Why did they make those?!?

    I bought the DVD set last week and just finished watching it last night! It was truly outrageous.

    Best. Letter. Ever! And I had never even heard of Jem and the Holograms before clicking my way over to your page today. Thank you for helping me caulk up this sad little knowledge gap (hey, I was a kid in the ’70s). Letter made my day, and for what it’s worth I find ALL CAP USERS to be the last safe target of (especially Web-savvy) ridiculers everywhere. ALL CAP USERS, unite!
