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

WWE Evolution (2018) – Ladies Night

WWE Evolution (2018)

I’m WAY behind on my PPV recaps but I really enjoy doing them so even though Survivor Series is right around the corner (this Sunday, November 18th) I’m going to go back and recap the last show WWE Evolution (2018). The event took place on October 28th, 2018, at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York. It was the WWE’s first ever all women’s PPV event and I have to say I really enjoyed the show. Mark was … 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

No Shave November 2018

Once again this year I am participating in No-Shave November. According to No-Shave.org, “No-Shave November is a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. Learn more about how you can get involved and start getting hairy!” Some people participate in Movember instead. The goal there is to grow a mustache during the month to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male … Continue reading

Halloween (2018) Review

Halloween (2018)

NOTE: This review was originally posted at ScareTissue.com the morning after I got to see a preview screening. Halloween (2018) was directed by David Gordon Green and was written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. It is the eleventh installment in the Halloween film series, and a direct sequel to the original 1978 film. It completely retcons the series as it ignores all other films in the franchise after the original. SPOILER ALERT: This review will talk openly about some plot points … Continue reading
