I am a man. A man exploring the infinite possibilities of today's burning questions and topics... Or I'm a playwright and novelist who likes to write about random subjects or popular topics. Plus, it helps me at least write once in awhile, especially when writer's block sets in.

Jimmy Fallon Does it Again
In his time hosting The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon has found the best way to acquire and entertain viewers is his nostalgia for the 90's. Sure, he has the Lip Sync Battles, Epic Rap Battles, and a few other bits that have piqued my interest. It is his love for Saved by the Bell that keeps me following him on Twitter. A deep, passionate love for Saved by the Bell is probably the only thing Fallon and I have in common. Well, that and we're both handsome. Oh, and that scene in Fever Pitch where Fallon is watching the Buckner video is also a favorite of mine.
Without further adieu:

I, for one, love that so many episodes were crammed into this 8 min video. Not necessarily through dialogue, but also through posters on the wall. "No Hope with Dope" "Save the Max" and a poster for the rafting trip were my favorites.
It made me want to go watch all the episodes. I used to get my fix over at E! during the weekdays. Of course, they decided 4 hours or more a day of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (or a variation of) was much better to air. I guess their target audience doesn't consist of 36 year-old writers who still dream of going to Bayside High.
Hopefully they have seen the error of their ways and return Saved by the Bell to the airwaves immediately.
Oh yeah, five seconds in and this was already better than the movie they made on Lifetime.
Thanks Jimmy. Now, if you can get the original cast of Hang Time back together my life would be complete and I would promise to watch you every night. For at least a year.

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…
Nevada Day is fast approaching. Have you picked out your costume yet? Autumn is here. Leaves are doing their annual impressions of a chameleon, before dropping from the trees and collecting in piles on the ground. This is one of the many signals we are creeping ever closer to an important fall holiday: Nevada Day.
Nevada entered into an union with the United States on October 31, 1864. Since then, the day is marked nationwide by a celebration of candy, costumes, and general shenanigans and debauchery.
Each year, on October 31, millions of Americans--kids and adults alike--throw on a costume to celebrate this amazing day. Children even go door-to-door in their costumes, soliciting chocolate and licorice to honor the state of Nevada.
Adults have re-inserted themselves into the fun over the past ten years. Many have decided to partake in the celebration of Nevada by dressing the skimpiest costume they can find. These costumes are aptly titled "Sexy Pirate", "Sexy Cop"…
Years ago, in this galaxy and not too far away, the release of a new Star Wars movie was usually reserved for the month of May. Outside of the ill-fitted, little-seen Star Wars holiday special, the past three years have changed that.
New movies from the Star Wars galaxy have now turned into a Christmas-time affair, with The Last Jedi being the most recent of these films.
I grew up with the Star Wars universe and accompanying toys. Hours were spent playing with the toys, whether in my room or my grandpa's backyard. From Luke Skywalker to Jawas, these figures spent a fair amount of time buried in dirt and thrown into the grass. Many a weapon was lost this way, maybe even a head or two, and I like to believe a lost figure is buried in a yard in Bishop, California.
I still own a fair amount of toys from the original trilogy. Sure, the figures have no weapons or helmets and parts are missing on the Millennium Falcon, but I'm proud to say I still own them.
Over the years, I have p…
