50. There was absolutely no reason to run out and buy a Playstation 4. 49. American cheese is not a cheese, Gouda is. 48. We haven’t seen a cocksman like Derek Jeter since Ol’ Blue Eyes was still alive. 47. It is never not a good time to listen to Appetite for Destruction. 46. Instagram […]

The other day I dropped my Top 25 actors, but this list was actually tougher to finalize, hence me deciding to go to 30 on this one. This would have probably been a heck of  a lot easier years ago with Joe Pesci, Christopher Walken, Gene Hackman, Benicio Del Toro, Dustin Hoffman and John Malkovich […]

 The 25 Best Actors of Today I love making lists — we all do. They’re fun, subjective  and the very next day our rankings could easily change. But for today, this is what I’m riding with.

“Whatever you think is supposed to happen, I’m telling you, the exact, reverse opposite of that is going to happen.” No truer words can be said for Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. Nobody knows whats going to happen next. Nobody could have foreseen how the last few episodes went down, not even a little. Nobody […]

Obviously Howie doesn’t suck, but now that I have your attention allow me to elaborate on this continuing displeasure I’ve been having for some time. See, I grew up on Stern. I’d watch his channel 9 show religiously. I’d even order his pay-per-views a youngster. I’d tune in to the show as long as I […]

 Mickey Donovan It happens to the best of us, the realization of when your favorite character is about to vamoose.  It even happens when your favorite shows come to an end.  I’ve had that feeling a few times now; specifically with Seinfeld, The Sopranos and most recently The Wire.
