Dream A Little Teen Dream.

My heart just skipped a Tiger Beat! The photographer Stuart Sanford is releasing a limited edition line of t-shirts featuring the dreamy images of some of the '80s most posterific, baby-faced idols. So far you can sport a cotton ode to Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Noah Hathaway, or (my favorite) Chad Allen.

Knowing Stuart's work there is some underlying conversation here about the objectification of young boys in a homoerotic context, but I'm gonna ignore the slightly creepy aspects of these photos (especially the MPG one) and instead revel in the flood of teeny-bopper magazine memories this whole project sparked and leave it at that.
