Top Five Favorite Films From 1984

Police Academy (1984)

It’s been a while but I’m back again with another top five list, this time 1984. I won’t bury the lead here… this was the most difficult list I’ve come up with yet! I thought 1982 was difficult but this one puts it to shame. WOW… so many amazing films were released in 84! So basically, the way I make these lists are go through every movie and narrow it down to a list of … Continue reading

Jimmy Fallon Is Knocking It Out Of The Park

Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel & The Roots

This post started out as a Current Favs On YouTube post but I quickly realized that there was a common bond between all 3 of these videos: Jimmy Fallon.  In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who Jimmy Fallon is he’s the 39 year old genius that recently took over hosting the Tonight Show.  Before taking the reigns from Jay Leno, Fallon was on Saturday Night Live and hosted his own … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Opening Day & WrestleMania 27

Pip & Chewie At The Indian's Home Opener

Once again this year, Pip made his yearly trek to the Cleveland area for a weekend of reliving memories and debauchery.  This year’s trip happened to coincide with Opening Day for the Indians so we headed down to the stadium to take in a game with my brother Marko and buddy Al.  Pip had never been to the stadium so it was super cool to have a “first timer” there though I can’t say the … Continue reading

You Really Can’t Go Wrong With Some Kenny Loggins

Kenny Loggins Album

I’ve said it time and time again… I’m a geek. 80’s movies are my wheelhouse ranging anywhere from science fiction to action movies to horror. Many times these movies come complete with some cheesy soundtrack and when we’re talking soundtracks no one does it better than the man… Kenny Loggins. I’m Alright – Caddyshack (1980) I can’t embed it here, but if you want THE edition of this song you’ve got to check it out … Continue reading

A Wedding Preview – Piploose!

Piploose!!!

So Pip’s getting married this weekend and I can’t fucking wait!  Sure he’s found himself a great girl to spend the rest of his life with.  Sure he’s living the dream he’s waited so long for.  But you know what I’m looking forward to? “Let’s DANCE!!!” (In my best Kevin Bacon voice).  If you don’t know what I’m referring to shame on you… Go rent Footloose. I was running through the hard drive this evening … Continue reading

Is My Childhood Being Raped?

Child Of The 80's

I was born in the mid 70’s. It was before we had hundreds of channels on TV and it was before there was a blockbuster a week in the theaters.  There are comic, cartoon and movie properties that are so ingrained into my being that they are a part of me… and they’re all being redone for the sake of the almighty dollar. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Halloween, Friday The 13th, Tron… I could … Continue reading
