best-selling-albums-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

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

There are lots of ways to win an Academy Award – or rather, things that can increase your chances.  It helps if you’re talented, but if you’re in a serious drama, that helps even more.  It also helps if you cry, cry during a monologue, have cancer, have something to do with Nazis… or, if you’re a guy, you can lose a ton of weight.   Read the rest of this entry

Stop worrying about ebola, start worrying about heart disease, cancer and 8 other things that are killing Americans
