10 Day Influential Album Challenge

Mother Love Bone - Apple

I’m sure you’ve seen these things floating around Facebook. It’s a ‘challenge’ where you’re supposed to do something every day and then tag someone else to do to the same. Well, I got tagged recently. Here was the challenge: 10 Day Influential Album Challenge: I was challenged by [INSERT NAME] to post 10 albums that have influenced my musical taste – one record a day for 10 days. No explanation, no review, just the cover. … 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

Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos

Last year one of my friends tagged me in one of these Facebook challenges where I was supposed to, for seven days, post a new black and white photo every day. The photos were to contain no people and provide no explanation. One of these photos popped up in my timeline the other day and brought back some good memories. Here they are. Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos. No people and no explanation. … Continue reading

Well, I got tagged on one and have been moving right along. Here was the challenge: 10 day movie challenge: You are to post just an image, no explanation, from 10 movies that had an impact on you. 10 movies, 10 images, … Continue reading

The Best of 2017 From 406Northlane

Best of 2017

Since back in 2010 I’ve been doing these retrospective entries. Before we get too far into the year I wanted make sure I knocked this one out. As I said in my previous post I’ve been a terrible blogger recently and my yearly output of only 24 posts shows just how true that statement is. This is down from 79 posts in 2016 and 80 in 2016. I still plan on backdating a few movie reviews and … Continue reading

The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

Secret of My Success (1987)

It’s been quite a while (over six months!!!) but I’m back today with another favorite film list.

2015 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Best Of” since back in 2010.  I really upped my blogging output this past year but that doesn’t mean I’m happy. There’s still a lot I want to say… just look at my drafts folder! I’m sort of an analytics geek so I really look forward to writing these recap posts. It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1986

Three Amigos (1986)

Back again with another favorite list and this time the year is 1986. Going through the list of potential entries this is another tough year to rank.

You can check out my previous lists here: 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 As I’ve done previously, I’m sticking with my format of Five Honorable Mentions and a ranked … Continue reading
