The 15 Best Comedies of the 1980s


If you grew up during the 1980s (or were simply alive) and you watched movies, you know that nobody makes comedies like that anymore.  I guess the threat of total nuclear annihilation is a good incentive to leave it all out on the field, because back then, people would commit!  As such, here today I humbly present to you my own picks for the 10 Best Comedies of the 1980s in no particular order.

6 things wrong with the new WordPress posting page


wordpress-logo

The new WordPress.com posting system is now the default; you can never go home again – or rather, back to the old posting form.  This has been an optional beta post page for a long time and it doesn’t seem like they’re ever going to change the things I thought they obviously needed to update, so now that we’re stuck with it, here’ my laundry list of complaints.  Read the rest of this entry

Ranking & Reviewing Kevin Smith Movies


I developed an interest in movies at an early age, but maybe my affinity for film would have flickered and died if not for Kevin Smith.  An everyman from my own New Jersey made movies I could connect with on so many levels… it’s hard to put into words, so instead, I’ll just go through his filmography and rank the movies from my favorite to the one I probably won’t watch again.  Read the rest of this entry

Try guessing the Top Ten Best Selling Albums of the 1990s

Having come of age in the 1990s, I thought I would be a champ at guessing the top ten best selling albums of the decade… and I failed miserably.  Pearl Jam is not in the top ten.  (Mind Blown!  They’re in the top 20.)  But when I sat back and took an objective look at the list, it all started to make sense.  Read the rest of this entry

3 Amazing Facts About American Presidents


american-presidents-facts There’s no subject I love more than U.S. Presidents… except for maybe Star Wars…  Star Wars is awesome.  But anyway, the American Presidents were (and still are) fascinating men.  Here are three facts I betcha didn’t know about George Washington, Lyndon Johnson and John Quincy Adams from “Oh, interesting,” to “Holy Potato Balls!” And just FYI, that reference to “balls” is foreshadowing.   Read the rest of this entry

5 Songs from the 1990s that are Subtly (or Obviously) about Doing IT


The 1990s… how I respect and fear you.  My formative years were… you know, probably like yours and if you’re still working your way through the teenage process, then I weep for you because social media must make it ten times harder.  With that in mind, join me for a look at a simpler time when songs would either subtly or obviously command us to take out our junk and bump the uglies.  Read the rest of this entry

“All right, Rubbermaid; you just made THE LIST!”


jamies-enemy-list

We got some of those temporary Rubbermaid storage containers, which we’ve had good experiences with in the past, but this time, it cracked the first time we tried to put the lid on.  Hence, Rubbermaid is now on my Enemy List, which is in no way affiliated with or inspired by Homer’s Revenge List in any way.  I don’t know why I even brought it up.
