Top Five Favorite Films From 1982

The Beastmaster (1982)

Back again with another top five list, this time the year is 1982. Things are really getting difficult. No, that’s not even accurate. Things are getting downright impossible. 1982 is chock full of films that I consider top notch awesome. I’ve started this post several times. The first draft I had about 26 honorable mentions. But I won’t take the easy way out. With the 1980 and 1981 lists I had five honorable mentions and a … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1981

Stripes (1981)

Back again with another top 5 list, this time 1981. Before I get started I wanted to point out something about these lists. The years for each movie is determined by the US theatrical release. I’m using a website called The Numbers – www.the-numbers.com. This issue came to light after I posted my Top 5 Films From 1980 list. If you look at IMDB for say, Superman II it lists it as a 1980 movie. However, … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1980

Flash Gordon

I’m a big list guy. If you’ve read my stuff here you know I love putting them together and debating them. I’m starting a new, hopefully regular, series here on the site where I’ll be looking at my favorite films through the years. I got the idea for this when one of my favorite podcasts StarJoes did the same thing. I’m what they call a “child of the 80’s” as I was born in 1976 so … Continue reading

15 Albums That Changed My Life – Part 3

Secret World Live (1994)

This is the 3rd and final part in a series about 15 Albums That Changed My Life. This list originally came from a Facebook post where one of your friends would tag you and you’d have to chime in. Here was the original “question” that was posed: “Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you that they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in … Continue reading

2013 – A Retrospective Look Back At The Best Of 406

The Top 10 Of 2013

I started doing these “Best Of” recaps back in 2010.  I don’t blog nearly as often as I’d like to but I really do enjoy looking back at these year-in-review posts.  It’s always interesting to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years. For 3 years running, my list of Top 80?s Action Movies has held the top spot on this list.  Will it hold onto … Continue reading

15 Albums That Changed My Life – Part 2

Appetite For Destruction (1987)

This is Part 2 in a series about 15 Albums That Changed My Life.  This list originally came from a Facebook post where one of your friends would tag you and you’d have to chime in.

15 Albums That Changed My Life – Part 1

OU812 - Van Halen (1988)

I’m a huge music fan.  I don’t know about you, but when I hear certain songs / albums, I can magically be taken back to a specific time and place in my life.  I’m an especially big fan of song lyrics (which you’ll see plain as day as you continue to read). This list originally came from a Facebook post where one of your friends would tag you and you’d have to chime in.  I … Continue reading

A Look Back At 2012 – The Best Of 406 Northlane

The Top 10 From 2012

For the last couple of years, I’ve done a yearly recap post taking a look back at my blogging for the year and looking at the “best” posts based on how many views they received.  On the 2010 list, the Top 80’s Action Movies post took top honors.  That same post was at the top of the 2011 list.  What will be in the top spot this year?  Without further fan fair .. let’s get into it. … Continue reading
