Valley Girls Week Kickoff & Totally Awesome Giveaway!

My favorite VG on the right: EG Daily!

If you’ve hung out around in the Agent Lover lair for awhile, you may have noticed how much I love valley girls and anything related to them. So this week is….ALL ABOUT VALLEY GIRLS!  That means we will be talking about valley girl-themed movies, favorite famous VG’s and other totally tubular stuff! In the meantime, why not take a trip back  to my posts on my fave movies, Valley Girl (duh) and Earth Girls Are Easy, as well as my interview with singer Josie Cotton from Valley Girl!

I have to say it always pissed me off that the poster for Valley Girl did NOT have the real girl Deborah Foreman on it! Who was this imposter??

But that’s not all dudes and dudettes… we are kickin’ this thang off with a totally awesome giveaway! The winner will receive Valley Girl on DVD (although I’m sure ALL OF YOU have it already!) and I’ve also paired up with We Love Colors to give away a couple of my favorite items: 2 pairs of their knee socks and 2 pairs of their Nylon/Lycra Microfiber Tights ( Styles #1053 or #1008) ! All you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll pick the winner on Friday! Gag me with a spoon you muthas!

EDIT: I ended up getting really sick this past week so we will resume VGW on Monday! I will keep comments open until Sunday night and I’ll choose the winner on Monday. Sorry for the delay everyone!

my entire office is decorated in framed 27×40 Nic Cage movie posters. give it to me, baby!

4 Rachael { 10.17.11 at 2:10 pm }

I LOVE EG Faily! I love how she was the REAL California queen in all the 80s movies ~ from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, to Valley Girl to Better Off Dead and Summer School, EG just scored big time.
Though Earth Girls Are Easy is my favorite, favorite VG movie ever <3 I hear Julie Brown is trying to get it made into a musical for the theater!

5 Emma { 10.17.11 at 2:12 pm }

I LOVE this movie! So glad someone’s finally bringing it back.

6 Bren { 10.17.11 at 2:13 pm }

i’m a born and bred valley girl. EIGHT ONE EIGHT UP IN HERE.

7 Anna Nio { 10.17.11 at 2:15 pm }

Like, OHMIGAWD, totally tubular! Like, for sure! I only have VG on hardcore, old skool VHS, so I really wouldn’t mind owning a DVD copy. Or flashy socks, for that matter. Wouldn’t mind one bit.

8 Gabi M. { 10.17.11 at 2:20 pm }

TOTALLY AWESOME! I should be ashamed of myself…as a Southern California girl I don’t have VG in my DVD collection. I would love to enter to win all these wonderful goodies!
<3 Gabi

9 Jenna { 10.17.11 at 2:22 pm }

10 Crystal { 10.17.11 at 2:26 pm }

Tommy Pickles!

11 Mary Kate { 10.17.11 at 2:30 pm }

Not really related, but, I’m on a semester abroad and am the only one in the group with any knowledge of cali, i keep talking about Chola’s and trying to make them watch clips from Selena but they just don’t understand. So I spend all of my time when I should be writing essays and shit reading your blog. Thanks for doin what ya do girl.

12 Alex { 10.17.11 at 2:32 pm }

EEEE Valley Girl is simply the best thing to ever brace a movie screen! I am so glad you mentioned that the poster didn’t have Deborah Foreman on it because that seriously bugs me. Nic was such a fox, too!

13 Nico { 10.17.11 at 2:41 pm }

I have a strange obsession with VGs, despite living, pretty much, on the other side of the world.

14 Miriam { 10.17.11 at 3:00 pm }

You got me boo! I’d love to see this totally radical DVD and hoisery set arrive at my doorstep.

15 Sarada { 10.17.11 at 3:02 pm }

i need this more xD

16 vanessa { 10.17.11 at 3:05 pm }

like, totally awesome, marie!

17 Reana Louise { 10.17.11 at 3:05 pm }

I have a shameful confession… I’ve never seen Valley Girl! I’ve never even heard of it. The shame, ammirite? Must be educated! RLx

18 Elena { 10.17.11 at 3:08 pm }

I’m so glad someone else noticed that she’s not the girl in the poster, that has always bothered me!

19 mary van note { 10.17.11 at 3:26 pm }

Yes! I could use all of these things in my life.

20 Kate { 10.17.11 at 3:45 pm }

Everything here. EVERYTHING.

…If you could also send young Nicolas Cage to my doorstep, that would be fantastic.

21 Mary { 10.17.11 at 3:58 pm }

I’d love to win. I’ve been admiring those tights forever. Nic Cage is so hot in that movie.

22 kelsey morgan { 10.17.11 at 4:05 pm }

“fuck you, like, fersher.”

23 Chelsea S. { 10.17.11 at 4:07 pm }

Being as I am a legitimate Valley Girl (Woodland Hills, what what!), I cannot NOT enter this, like, totally cool contest? And, um, I’ve, like, never seen this movie that’s probably about my life?? And now I live in, like, the Bay Area and shit, and, like, miss the sun and have to wear so many tights? So, really, I’m, like, the ultimate potential winner?

24 Dinah { 10.17.11 at 4:24 pm }

OMG I just recently saw this movie for the 1st time and I never knew Nick Cage was SO SESSY. His sleepy eyes were making me totally HORN. Too bad he looks like the crypt keeper now.

The movie did make me a little less ashamed of living in the valley tho. :)

25 Emily Britton { 10.17.11 at 4:47 pm }

I love this movie, classic!

26 CeeJay { 10.17.11 at 5:41 pm }

Maybe it’s quite unfortunate that I’ve never even heard of Valley Girl. I feel like I just committed a crime! Wouldn’t mind discovering a whole new, well, world. I am a film ADDICT.

27 Nina { 10.17.11 at 5:43 pm }

I’ve always looked at this movie cover and known it was the film for me

28 Crissy { 10.17.11 at 6:23 pm }

Would you bitch slap me if I said that I don’t know if I have ever seen this movie, but I have seen every movie that stars Art Garfunkel? Anyway, happy birthday week!

29 lydia { 10.17.11 at 6:24 pm }

AH MAH GAH!! the walls at the mall are totally totally tall!!!

30 Natalie { 10.17.11 at 6:28 pm }


31 Jens Werner { 10.17.11 at 7:42 pm }

32 Jem { 10.17.11 at 8:01 pm }


33 missmarisol { 10.17.11 at 8:35 pm }

happy birthday week! how awesome of you to do this giveaway.

34 Amy { 10.17.11 at 9:46 pm }

I’m pretty embarrassed to say I don’t think I’ve seen this movie either. Based on the cover alone I think I would love it. Those outfits are amazing.

35 Caterina { 10.17.11 at 10:24 pm }

Encino’s like so bitchin!

36 Leina { 10.17.11 at 10:38 pm }

37 Andrea { 10.17.11 at 10:52 pm }

I need knee socks sooo bad! And E G Dailey is also my fave. Swoon over that voice and big ass hair!

38 Collorious { 10.18.11 at 5:59 am }

Comment to the max! I actually don’t have The Valley Girl DVD, only the torrent, but I do play Earth Girls Are Easy whenever I need nail art inspiration!

39 Loulou { 10.18.11 at 6:43 am }

44 Mace Elaine { 10.18.11 at 3:05 pm }

Second time’s a charm!

57 Yennifurrr { 10.19.11 at 6:17 pm }

Oh nicolas how were you so absolutely, LIKE TOTALLY, dreamy then…and sooo like not dreamy now? What happened cage, what happened?!?!

I like, need those tights now to get over the OOOh Ma Gawhd horribleness that is Nicolas Cage’s hunky degradation… tears!

58 Annie { 10.19.11 at 8:23 pm }

Valley Girl is in my top 5 favorite movies…but man, the Plimsoles? Really? They could have picked a way radder scuzzy LA band for the punks.
I have a dream that somedaaay they will show it again at Hollywood Forever and you and I will both be there with a beautiful pizza.

59 Stephanie { 10.20.11 at 4:54 pm }

This giveaway is so cool! And Daily is my fave Valley Girl, too.

60 pippip { 10.21.11 at 10:25 am }

oh. em. gee!

61 ashley { 10.22.11 at 6:59 pm }

this is so great!

62 DianaPilar { 10.22.11 at 7:03 pm }

As a pre-teen wannabe chola in the late 80′s, I’d scream at the top of my lungs for five minutes straight from “Tar Beach” (my Queens NYC rooftop in the middle of the hood) just so I get get Daily’s trademark rasp. Word is born. Yuh know I need those tights too, Rie Rie.

63 Lorra { 10.23.11 at 2:04 pm }

Ha! I found this because I was looking up valley girls – I have also had a lifelong obsession with them, it’s sort of strange since I have been more inclined to obsess over bad-ass wild women, and am sort of gothy myself, but valley girls still steal my heart for some reason (and it is also strange that they do, since when people say “like” all the time, it drives me crazy…but in the context of a VG it doesn’t bother me!)

64 rachel { 10.23.11 at 3:25 pm }

i totally used to have some valley girl dolls when i was young, but as a 90′s baby i wasn’t around for the VG craze :(

65 Thea { 10.23.11 at 6:23 pm }

ahh, this is one of my all time fav movies! <3
