Female Population: Please Let Us Hit On You At Starbucks And The Gym.

Female Population: Please Let Us Hit On You At Starbucks And The Gym.

The Geneva Convention, The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the 10 Ten Commandments, the list goes on. All are extremely important documents that have shaped this great nation we call home. USA! USA! USA! I propose a new document. I present to you "The Male/Female Coffee + Gym Agreement." Or, the TMFCGA. Side note: 'hitting on you' has such a negative connotation. I'm not Floyd Mayweather (too soon?). I think it implies a sweaty dude walking up and saying incredibly stupid shit. For the sake of making my argument, let's just call it starting a conversation you didn't think you would have that day. Proceed. I'm sure you can guess what the agreement states for the most part. I'll provide the hard hitting facts of what led me to this groundbreaking document. I'm 28, single, and in that weird phase where some of my friends are getting married and having kids, some are still blacking out 2-3x a week, and some are floating around the ocean shooting lip...

I’m So Excited, I’m So Excited, I’m…Sooo…Scared

I feel really bad for kids growing up today. They don't have Saved By The Bell. I am a firm believer that SBTB is the greatest show of its kind ever made. I grew up feeling like Zack, Screech, AC, Kelly, Lisa, Jessie and Mr. B were my close personal friends.

Not only did it guide us through childhood, one 30-minute episode at a time, but it produced the most iconic, riveting, emotional & perfect scene of our youth. Let's have a look, shall we. I understand if you need a moment to compose yourself...be strong. So many great things about this scene. Zack's business casual rolled up sleeve blazer look almost steals the show. No real explanation necessary, dude had style. Elizabeth Berkley's performance is inspired. I laughed...I cried...and I bet you did too.  Jessie Spano is taking caffeine pills so she...

A Look Back at NOW! That’s What I Call Music

Wanna feel realllllllllly old for a second? We are embarking on the 46th edition of NOW That's What I Call Music. FORTY.....SIXTH! NOW That's What I Call depressing. They've gotta be one of the more successful franchises around, right? Even Girls Gone Wild is done, and they sold something everyone loves... cheap immoral pornography! Can I buy stock in the NOW franchise? NOW Vol. 1 is hands down the best collection of songs this franchise has ever put together. Everything after that has been downhill. Hanson's "Mmmbop" and K-Ci & JoJo's "All My Life" are arguably the 2 best songs ever written. Ya throw in Harvey Danger "Flagpole Sitta" and it doesn't really matter what else they put on the album. Am I right or am I right? NOW Vol. 5 dropped the hammer pretty hard with numerous club bangers as well. In my opinion, it is the 2nd best NOW CD in the franchise. **[Editor's Note] In case you're wondering, I aggressively skimmed every NOW...
