Mark! Why Don't You Join THE BAND!

Written by
If you know what Rex Manning Day is then you are familiar with a little 90's movie called "Empire Records".  It is a cult classic.  After watching the movie I wanted to work at a record store so bad.  I think I am drawn to crazy characters like Kathy, Kris, Cherise and Pottsy.  Haha kidding my co-workers aren't crazy.. just characters! The movie starred Liv Tyler, Rene Zellweger and others... Toby McGuire and Gwar were even in it??  Oh and Rex Manning played by Maxwell Caulfield...  The story of a record store that was being bought out by a big…

What Movie or Show Creation Would You Use?

Written by
Serendipity Brands tapped Warner Bros. to do a collab of ice cream and television or movie themes? The ice cream will each be a creation that represents "Friends", "The Goonies", "Caddyshack" and most importantly to Cleveland "Christmas Story" it's called Oh, Fudge... My question is what show or movie would you spoof as an ice cream and what would the ingredients be? Three Amigos called El Guapo... made with salty toffee, crushed Whoppers and peanut butter swirl because everything was so dusty in that movie. Or Major League... call it Jobu a rum, coffee blend to wake up bats...  The…

Leprechauns

Written by
Well St. Patrick's Eve my son spent the evening making a Leprechaun Trap. At first, I thought he was just looking to catch one to say, he did it! I found out he was looking for the gold.  He used Lucky Charms (like the cereal) and fake coins of gold to draw the elusive characters. After all was said and done the traps were set and to no avail...  It was actually fun and impressive to see how the traps were made. Tell you the truth, maybe next year I will make one, that gold sounds pretty nice at this…

Kid90

Written by
I watched Kid90 the other night on Hulu.  It is the story of Punky Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye).  She ran tape of her life growing up with a group of 12 child stars that included... The Late Jonathan Brandis, Brian Austin Green and more.  It also delves into the friends they knew in Hollywood from Stephen Dorff, Perry Farrell, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Leonardo Dicaprio, Sara Gilbert, Mario Lopez, Joey Lawrence,  David Arquette, Charlie Sheen and a ton of others.   It was like a reality show which I thought was going to be an easy watch, but it turned out to…
