    The Golden Archs are the symbol for McDonald’s.  No one is disputing that.  Almost just as recognizable as the giant M is Ronald McDonald.  I’ve always wondered how someone could be as fit as Ronald McDonald if he eats McDonald’s all the time.  If they were going to have a …

    Smoking No No


    Three of my favorite shows are “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Arrested Development,” and “Scrubs.”  The jokes are different but they all share the same sense of humor.  Sometimes I think how great it would be if they could all share a show together.  Who would enjoy JD’s fantasy worlds …

    Toys and Dolls

    Blink 182


    Blink 182 has been one of my favorite bands since high school.  I’ve always liked their music but also like the personality of the band.  They seem very fun and carefree. This really comes across in their music videos.  This little clip really sums up their attitude and approach to…

    Movie Trading Card


    Anybody living in Virginia last summer can relate to this episode of “The Twilight Zone.”  It was so hot that I would have believe the weatherman if he said it was caused by the sun coming closer for a visit.  The expression on the woman’s face in my gif was …

    If anybody ever met my dog they would understand why I did this.  She’s as high-fashion and …

    I Hate Spiders


    To this day, bugs are probably the one thing I hate the most.  Every time I see them I freak out.  I view spiders exactly the same if not worse.  They climb up walls, leave disgusting webs, and are everywhere.  I even have mixed feelings about Spiderman.  Take this GIF …

    The Silence of the Lambs


    I never saw the trailers for The Silence of the Lambs or how it was promoted, it came out in 1991 and  I was born in 1990.  However, I think that this would be an easy movie to sell with this movie picture in hand.  There’s so much emotion and …
