Hold the football

Many halftime performers are given a football and they have to (awkwardly) pose with it and try to make it look like they know what this foreign object is. Here are the results. 1992: Gloria Estefan awkward two handed hold on a football 1993: Michael Jackson seems to be questioning why this thing is in […]

1984: The Greatest Pop Culture Year

I’ll admit that I’m biased but as I look back 30 years it’s really hard to top 1984 in terms of Pop Culture influence. Television had the Thursday lineup of The Cosby Show, Family, Cheers, Night Court and Hill Street Blues.  It was the first year for Miami Vice.  It was also the year of this take […]

Rock Stars and Presidents

Herb Ritts

Like any great musician with a unique sound that can’t be duplicated, Herb Ritts has a unique style to his photographs.  Most of his photos contain one or more of the following styles, exaggerated physiques, elastic torsos that accentuate the human form and faces in the throes of ecstasy.  Like a great song, they’re fun […]

Coming Up

Unless you’re a Fanilow, there really isn’t anything new to get too excited about this week. There is a re-release of two Paul McCartney albums, McCartney from 1970 and McCartney II from 1980. McCartney is significant in that it signaled the end of the Beatles.  Paul even included his own Q&A with advance copies to the press […]
