Ways To Improve Pro Wrestling

Hulk Hogan

I’ve had the idea for this post for quite a while now and I’m finally getting around to actually writing it.  I’m not quite sure where its headed, but I’m guessing it’s going to be a bit of a rant.  For those readers that aren’t in the mood to listen to me bitch about what’s wrong with the wrestling feel free to move along. Still with me?  OK… here goes.  In no particular order. Mandatory … Continue reading

The T5 Flaming Keg Shirt

The T5 Flaming Keg Shirt

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Pip’s sister letting me know that she was making him a quilt made out of t-shirts and was wondering if I had any input.  Not only did I have some input but I had what I thought was the perfect shirt to add to the mix… The T5 Flaming Keg shirt.  Back in our days in the dorm, Pip and I lived with a great group … Continue reading

Top 10 From The First 5

G At Age 5

Today’s the G-man’s 5th birthday!  The kid simply doesn’t sleep these days so even though he went to bed at near 10:00 PM last night, he was up this AM at around 6:30.  I figured I’d cut him some slack this morning cause hell… it’s his birthday!  As it’s his 5th birthday, today also happens to be the anniversary of our first day as parents.  To that end, I decided to put this quick list … Continue reading

The Best Of The 411 From 2010

Top 10 2010

These types of lists typically come out at the beginning of the year.  I’m all for giving convention the middle finger so I’m doing it in the day after St. Patrick’s Day.  Got a problem with that?  🙂  Part of why I keep this blog is as some sort of  “outlet” for my creative juices.  Another is that in this day and age this is about the only “cool” way for a guy to keep … Continue reading

Top Holiday Movies

Scrooged (1988)

Just as the fall is synonymous with horror movies, the winter is for holiday movies (it’d be kind of silly to have a bunch of Christmas movies in mid August wouldn’t it?)  So the first question we need to ask is how we’re defining a Christmas movie.  For the purposes of this list I’ll define them as movies that are either set at Christmas time or are “about” the concept of Christmas. HONORABLE MENTIONS Lethal … Continue reading

Let The Lyrics Speak To You

The Verve Pipe - Underneath

I’m a huge fan of lyrical music.  Sure a good beat and melody can get you moving on the dance floor, but for a song to truly “touch” me it’s got to have great lyrics.  I’m also something of a romantic and a family man as you’ll see from my choices.  There are quite certainly other songs that I love from a lyrical standpoint but these stood out as my favorites. Colorful – The Verve … Continue reading

Top 80’s Action Movies

First Blood (1982)

It’s been quite some time since I came up with any kind of a Top 10 list.  I was flipping through the channels the other night in a hotel room and ran across First Blood on AMC.  Naturally, I sat there and watched it till the end and it got me to thinking what a great era the 80’s was for action flicks. HONORABLE MENTIONS Revenge Of The Ninja (1983) – When I think of … Continue reading

Hockey Masks, Razor Blades & Impalements… Oh My

Scream

The fall seems to be synonymous with horror movies.  It might be due to a little flick called Halloween.  In any case I’m a HUGE fan of the genre (as evidenced by the fact that Pip and I started a horror movie review website called ScareTissue).  For my money I’d pick a horror/slasher flick any day of the week.  Sure they’re campy, gory and go for the surprise factor but I absolutely LOVE them.  For … Continue reading

Definitive Roles

Chewie & Han

There are some actors that can play many roles.  There are others who are typecast and can never quite get outside of their comfort zone and play another character.  There are still others that are forever linked to one particular character.  That’s what this list is… the top 10 (in no particular order) “what character you think of first” list.  For me, these are career defining roles for these actors.  This is the first 10 … Continue reading

Top 10 Movie Villains (Pt. 1)

John Doe

Greetings fellow blogheads.  Johnny Provo here recklessly chucking his first blog on the 406 site.  Long overdue, I know.  I’m sure my much devoted fan club  (comprised in it’s entirety of Chewie and my mom) had all but given up hope of ever getting slapped upside the head with my boomstick of witty banter.  Well fear not, both of you, here I am to share with you my top ten list of all time movie … Continue reading
