Star Wars: Episode IX Teaser and Title – The Rise of Skywalker

Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker

Earlier this afternoon we finally got our first look at the upcoming Star Wars movie which we now know will be called The Rise of Skywalker. To say I’m excited would be an understatement of pretty epic proportions. I’ll admit that the more I watch The Last Last Jedi but I’m not going to allow one sub par film ruin my love for the franchise. And I’m certainly not going to let it diminish my … Continue reading

Saint Lucia’s Finest – Chairman’s Reserve

Chairman's Reserve Rum

A few years back the Wife and I went to St. Lucia to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We went to a nice little all inclusive joint that I can’t for the life of me remember the name of but that I’d highly recommend. How’s that for a solid recommendation? Anyhow, When we checked in they met us in the lobby with drinks as we came off the bus and let us choose what booze we … Continue reading

Official WrestleMania 35 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 35 Logo 2019 Square

WrestleMania 35 will be held on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. As of this writing I’m not sure if Pip will be joining me this year. If I had to guess at this point I’d say no. That said for the second year in a row will be my brother Mark and I (and my kids) watching the show. I don’t even think I did a Beeramid recap … Continue reading

Mastercard and College… Priceless

Pip Mastercard

It’s been forever since I’ve done a Pic From 406 entry. Today’s entry for Throwback Thursday was originally posted to the site the week of March 2nd, 3 with the following caption: Putting a picture of you with your friend passed out behind you on your credit card…priceless. That’s brother Pip’s credit card. I’ll leave it to you to try and remember (figure out) who’s on the couch 😉 Do you have any other 406 related photos? … Continue reading

True Color – From Lauper to Trolls

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick

Ferris Bueller famously said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” I really hate to say how busy I am. We’re all busy. We’ve all got shit that we’re dealing with. When I’m dealing with… stuff… I turn to the world of music. There’s always something there that speaks to me. Today, I turned to what I’d consider a classic. I’ve known the words to this one for years, but … Continue reading

2018 – The Best of 406Northlane

Best of 2018

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. A down year for my activity here with only 27 posts (!). Terrible. Just terrible. This is already my fourth of this year and I’m making an effort to get back into it because I really miss it. It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years. The Top 10 … Continue reading

Think About It – The Great Dictator

The Great Dictator (1940)

The world we live in. It’s overwhelming. If you let yourself you can quickly be overwhelmed by noise and day to day activities that we all have. Hate. Anger. Prejudice. Social media trolls. Drama queens looking to stir trouble. If you’ve read my stuff here on the blog for any amount of time you know I’m generally talking pro wrestling, pop culture, movies, sarcasm or drinking. But there are times when I get a bit … Continue reading

Royal Rumble (2019) – The Road Begins

Royal Rumble 2019

Last Sunday night the WWE held its 32nd annual Royal Rumble event at  Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. For the second year in a row the event fell on the first day of my company’s national sales event so I wasn’t able to watch it live. I eventually ended up watching it Wednesday evening with my bro after spending a few days trying to stay away from social media and results. Overall I’d say it was a decent show but … Continue reading

Living in a Land of Confusion

As the kids say these days, it’s been about a minute since I’ve done any blogging. I could give you a bunch of excuses about how I’m so busy, how I’ve got too much going on, yada, yada, yada. And believe me… they’d all be true. But as I get older I realize that complaining about how busy I am is just sort of silly. Everyone’s busy. And no one wants to hear about it. … Continue reading

Survivor Series (2018) – Raw Domination

Survivor Series 2018 Feature

Sunday night the WWE held its 32nd annual Survivor Series event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.  For the third year in a row this show pitted Raw vs. Smackdown in a sort of brand supremacy battle which turned out to be no battle at all with Raw getting a win in every match (except for the kickoff match which we didn’t watch). I was glad to have my partner in crime (my brother) back with me … Continue reading
