Because, well, it’s the Beastie Boys, ya know? Also, I’m a big ol’ nerd of a Trekkie and they seem to fit Beastie Boys in there a lot. So… If you don’t what the heck I’m talking about, here’s a bit of Beyond:
I have colorful and odd dreams. Sometimes they’re funny. Sometimes they’re interesting. Sometimes they’re terrifying. Have you ever seen the movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Remember the scene at the end when the wall comes down and all the toons walk into the warehouse? This dream was set in that warehouse with those toons. They […]
I don’t know about you but I’ve always loved the Young Guns movies and Bon Jovi. To this day, you can catch me belting this song out while I’m tearing down the road on my way to wherever. These movies made me want to marry Lou Diamond Phillips when I was a kid. But eventually […]
I have always loved Christmas. I hope a time never comes round when I don’t. No matter how difficult life has been at times, nothing ever took the joy away. I’m not a religious person. I don’t celebrate Christmas as a Christian. I celebrate the season as a human being. I don’t do Christmas shopping. […]
My sister and I were barreling down the road in my POS Escort hatchback, singing this song at the top of our lungs. And it doesn’t matter where we were or where we were going. It just mattered that we were singing and making one of my favorite memories. Enjoy.
This song hits me in the feels every time I hear it. It is so easy to do something kind for another person and yet so many choose not to. They put their heads down and make silent excuses and convince themselves that it’s alright to not help fellow human beings. But it’s not. None […]
Once I met this boy. Well, he was 38 so not really a boy. We had the most fun I’ve had with anyone and even though I didn’t want to, I quickly fell crazy in love with him. Two years later, I was changing the locks and about to file a restraining order. Obviously a […]
Living in rural Pennsylvania as kiddos, my siblings and I partook in a never-ending selection of geographically appropriate past times. Building forest forts. Pissing off bees. Chasing fireflies. Mad dashes through puddles in our Radio Flyer. But one of my very favorites was snow angels. I’d lay on my back and stare up at the […]
I loved this song as a kid. Every time I heard “Shoot ’em down, turn around,” I’d drop to the ground and spin in a circle. And since I didn’t actually know most of the words to the song, there was a lot of dropping and spinning in the mornings as I sang to myself […]
1987. Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania. Our basement. And Guns ‘n’ Roses plays while my brother, sister, and I rock out. My brother was always Axl. Because, well, he was the oldest and that’s just the way it was. Enjoy.
