Laura the Goth’s Holiday *Wish* List

It’s that time again…the holiday shopping season is upon us. {The horrors.} We thought we’d post a weekly blog about what the #OJBG kids would want from Santa – and hopefully give you some good ideas too. Hmmm..what to get Laura the Goth? She likes black, voodoo, post punk, dark chocolate ice cream and she plays the bass. Oh and she’s a Scorpio. Check out her Pinterest page for holiday gift ideas for your own moody goth.

OJBG Holiday Wish Lists


By Kathleen.

We made is to December. FINALLY.

In the spirit of the holidays, we’re releasing “Orange Juice in Bishop’s Garden” character-themed holiday wish lists. Perhaps they’ll serve as merely inspiration while you go & gather your gifts — or maybe you know someone who’s a hardcore Sarah (insert appropriate name of OJBG character here) fan & will want EVERYTHING on the list. No shame in that. We personally find it difficult to peel our eyes away from some of these finds. Thank god our wallet keeps our wishes in check.

We’ll make sure to link to each list below as it comes available.

90s Candy Nostalgia

By Kathleen.

Rarely does The 90s Life tweet something I find unrelatable because, as we all know, the 90s is hands down the best decade. In fact, one of their recent posts sent me on another trip down memory lane with its mentioning of Gushers as something that ticked us off in the 90s. At first, I thought The 90s Life had gone delusional.

How could Gushers, with their delicious bursts of sweet gel, tick anyone off?!?

But then I read the fine print… we were ticked off when moms stopped giving them to us for lunch after reading up on their sugar content. Apparently, my mom was ahead of the gang in this department because Gushers were always classified as candy in my household. So seeing their image again naturally got me to thinking about all the other 90s candy I miss; some of which made cameos in “Orange Juice in Bishop’s Garden”: Pop Rocks, Dots, Pez… the list goes on.

What 90s candy do you miss the most?

Halloween Costumes — OJBG Style!

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 1.25.20 PM

Here’s a crazy thought! Why not take a page from the stylebook of the wild 90s kids of “Orange Juice in Bishop’s Garden” ??? Sure, we’re always down for dressing in 90′s grunge, but we can’t say the same for everyone else. Now’s your chance to don the choker necklaces, Doc Martens, rainbow hair + more of decades past without having to worry about looking business prof (snore – thank God I’m not corporate:).

DC Web Fest Recap

By Kathleen.

Snapshot from the Opening Night Party, which was written up in the Post's Going Out Guide.

Snapshot from the Opening Night Party, which was written up in the Post’s Going Out Guide.

It’s been just over a month since 20/20 Productions held the 2nd Annual DC Web & Digital Media Festival, but that doesn’t mean we’ve put the event behind us. Quite the contrary, actually; we’ve been hard at work building an online portal for the festival. By creating space for it in the digital sphere, we hope to provide a way for people around the world to continually visit and revisit DC Web Fest. This way the festival doesn’t need to be simply an ephemeral moment.

Through this channel, we plan to showcase highlight reels from our panelists and key speakers, complete with exclusive behind-the-scenes’ interviews. Think of them as TED talks specifically focused on creating meaning digitally. But that’s not all. We’ll also feature all award-winning web series and games, providing you direct access to innovative entertainment. And the best part is that you don’t have to wait forever for access — though we’re building this portal piece by piece,  you can watch it grow and evolve right here.

TVs=so passé

By Kathleen.

I don’t own a TV. While that may have come as a shocker a few years back, lately it seems like few millennials actually possess a tubular box. Part of me wishes this was because my generation refused to be entertained by voices emanating from a screen (re, Fahrenheit 451) , but let’s be honest, many of us are products of the digital age — and so most of us simply watch TV from a smaller screen: our laptops. Come 2015, HBO is making that process all the more easy for us with an exclusively video-streaming package. And with Netflix streaming Gilmore Girls and, in the very near future, Friends, what more could we want? (Also, going to put a plug in for all those cool web series, hint: OJBG.)

But, really, it’s okay to stay in & watch GG. They can be our homies, right?
