Clueless (1995) w/ Long Nguyen and Damon Gross

Joy Luck Division members Long Nguyen and Damon Gross join the podcast to talk about Amy Heckerling’s 1995 classic film Clueless, which is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary! We chat about Alicia Silverstone’s career before she became a star, the running gag of the song “Fake Plastic Trees” and some parallels between Clueless and Amy Heckerling’s other iconic teen film, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Long also shares some stories about his time in Orange County ska band, the Nuckle Brothers, and how surreal it was to see ska taking off as his band was breaking up.
