Posted on November 17, 2011 | 1 CommentOn September 5th, a man dressed in a costume walked into a 7-11 and tried to rob the store. He failed to pull off his scheme: his gun was tucked away a little too well, and he ended up leaving twenty-seven cents of his own...
Posted on November 3, 2011 | No CommentsBreakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so the old saying goes. If you’re a natural morning person, it’s probably a piece of cake to get into the early-hour routine. But if you’re a night-owl like me, you’re going to have to...
Posted on October 27, 2011 | No CommentsAs a child of the 80′s, the knowledge that everything was slowly becoming digital (well, digital for the decade) was swallowed with my morning cereal. This movement would take over watches, coffee makers, and educational toys. I think you guys know which educational toy in...
Posted on August 16, 2011 | 2 CommentsOn August 6th, Google used its logo to pay tribute to what would have been the 100th birthday of Lucille Ball. The familiar “I Love Lucy” background with “Google” in the familiar sitcom’s font was set on an old school television set, complete with dials...
Posted on April 28, 2011 | No CommentsHands up if you remember Shareware games of the early 1990s? I do, and after a frustrating tussle with Professor Layton’s latest adventure, I went looking online for one of my favourites. Lo and behold, it still exists! Let me share my love affair with...
Posted on March 24, 2011 | 1 CommentWhen you think of 1980s rock, you’ll probably think of Motley Crue, KISS or Bon Jovi (or, thanks to Glee, maybe Journey). From sweeping power ballads written specifically to get lighters waved to down ‘n’ dirty party anthems that put many rappers to shame, glam...
Posted on February 20, 2011 | 4 CommentsWe’ve relived some good times from the Sesame Street of our generation through this feature. Things like “A Loaf of Bread…,” “Ladybug Picnic,” and Richard Pryor reciting the alphabet while he was off his motherf*cking kite are just some of the things that I relish...
Posted on January 30, 2011 | No CommentsI think that it is obvious that before a certain time, superhero movies and television shows focused more on the perceived campy side of the “comics” and worried very little about the deeper flip-side of superheroes that usually dealt with their motivation, internal demons, etc....
Posted on December 24, 2010 | No CommentsBack in 1988, my mom had the kindness to tape the “Pee-wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special” for me. Thank Zeus she did, because when I told others of its existence, people scoffed and thought I was crazy. And the plot is kind of crazy: receiving so...
Posted on November 25, 2010 | 3 CommentsWe’re all familiar with the Charlie Brown Holiday Specials, namely “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Much like the actual Thanksgiving holiday, the Peanuts’ Turkey Day special is overshadowed by those other two holidays. Back in the day, you knew...
