For Halloween this year, I’m going to be Jem! As in, Jem and the Holograms! Don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about! Jem was this kick-ass cartoon from the late 80’s. I loved watching this show, although for the life of me, I can’t remember if I was already here in the U.S. or if I was still in the Philippines when I watched it. I was most likely here in the U.S. already...
In any case, Jem is about this chick named Jerrica Benton who runs half of Starlight Foundation (an organization that her parents left her and her sister Kimber after they died). Jerrica’s dad also left her this amazing computer program named Synergy who can project hundreds of holograms. Jerrica uses Synergy to create her alter-ego, Jem. By saying “It's showtime Synergy!”, Jerrica is transformed from a straight-laced business woman to hot rock star! Jem and her bandmates, the Holograms are truly outrageous! Their only rival is The Misfits, an evil rock band headed by Pizzazz and managed by a ruthless man named Eric Raymond (who owns the other half of Starlight Foundation). Jerrica’s boyfriend, Rio has the hots for Jem, not knowing that they are the same person! Talk about your crazy love triangle!
I just downloaded the opening theme song for Jem and it sure brings me back to my younger years. You too can download Jem and the Holograms' songs by clicking here. And to put icing on the cake, I just found out that Jem -The Complete Season 1 & 2 is out on DVD!
I'll post a pic of myself dressed up. If I can only find a hot pink dress, I'd be set!
