editor's pick: we are all made of stars

the planet pin that's out of this world.

I'll always remember where I was the day that I found out that Pluto wasn't a planet anymore--because yes, it was a major bummer. Mostly because I could no longer use my favorite childhood mnemonic phrase: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas anymore. Later, I would come to find out that the new, Pluto-less version of it would be My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodles. How is that okay?! I'd take pizza over noodles any day.

I suppose it's possible that the fact that I even have a favorite mnemonic phrase should totally throw your "Nerd Alert" alarms into a chaotic set-off frenzy, but don’t we all have a little Katy Perry-style "Last Friday Night" cool nerd in us? I sure hope so, because it's that side of me that gets to obsess over supernatural mystery shows like Twin Peaks and still have my collection of books from the Goosebumps series. Not to mention the fact that I’m literally an expert at Guitar Hero (totally serious)--and I'm not sure about you, but I embrace my not-cool tendencies (and would challenge you to Fringe trivia any day of the week).

So besides my oversized Warby Parkers and amaze video game skills, you might not know how nerdy I am just by looking at me (okay, you might know). But it will definitely show once I start sporting this completely amazing Saturn Is The Color Of Your Energy Pin by Suzywan Deluxe.

To be honest, I was never really huge on the pins trend. Since Backstreet Boys didn’t really have any for me to buy at their merch table, I didn’t see the point. But a planet pin?! Now that’s something I’d be willing to stick onto my clothing and never take off. It’s both science-y and cool, and adds that cosmic vibe that’s pretty much everywhere these days.

So if you’re anything like me (AKA-have spray-painted dinosaur figurines in neon colors standing fiercely around your room), let it show. Get the seriously cool pin in the NYLON Shop right now, and I’ll see you at the next Harry Potter movie marathon.
