Time for a break...
The Why? List will be taking a break for about 2 weeks. I have to catch up a little bit on other things first. Then I’ll be able to think of some new post ideas. However, reader submissions will still be accepted. So if you have a little thing in life you want to post about, send it in!
That Moment When You Realize You Forgot Something
Whether it’s a vacation, a trip to a friend’s house, or even going to work, I feel this one is pretty self-explanatory.
Toast Popping Out of The Toaster
Horror movies? No problem. Gory movies? Easy. Someone sneaking up on me? Child’s play. Fireworks? They look amazing. Explosions? Neat. Toast popping out of the toaster? FUCK. EVERY DAMN TIME.
Friday Night Nostalgia: The Wonder of Hotels
Remember how great staying in a hotel as a kid was? It was one of the best parts of the vacation! It was so different, with its complimentary towels, soaps, and ice box. Beds were magically remade when you came back, along with a cleaner room. There was a swimming pool! There were vending machines! There was complimentary breakfast! Look at all of those fucking locks on the door! Holy shit, this...
The Fan Voice
Nothing like sounding like a bad-ass robot on the hottest days of the year. Or Black Sabbath. Or Darth Vader. Or an annoying little shit.
Ads, Ads, Everywhere
The other day I went to watch a video in Internet Explorer. Before it started playing I was forced to watch an ad. This actually kind of humbled me because I wonder how I ever got by without AdBlock in Firefox getting rid of all that shit. In this day and age, we are completely over-saturated with ads. The market is so fucking crowded that as the years go by, marketing geniuses keep finding new...
Friday Night Nostalgia: Your High School Album
I’m not sure how many of you can relate to this one, but it seems that when I ask most people which music album was the theme of their high school years, they always seem to have a good answer. Anything from Blink-182 to Linkin Park to The Offspring to Blur to Semisonic to Matchbox 20 to Oasis to Limp Bizkit to Radiohead to Ben Folds Five to 311 to Sublime to Stone Temple Pilots to...
The Car Radio Surprise
Don’t you love blaring one of your favorite songs in the car when it comes on the radio? Hell yeah! You’ve earned it. In fact, it’s so good, you decide to finish listening to it when you pull up to your destination. After all, you don’t hear it on the radio that often. Damn that song was good. Oh well, time to go. Then a few hours pass, you come back, start the...
The First Day of Work/School After Daylight...
Before: OH MY GOD THE SUN IS OUT!!! After: Ugh. Time for a nap.
Friday Night Nostalgia: The Prize in the Cereal...
Remember when you saw that cereal commercial on TV, where it mentioned the FREE PRIZE that came with every box? Remember how badly you begged your mom or dad for it the next time you went shopping? Remember how much you hoped that they would come back with it? Shit man, life was stressful as hell as a kid. But anyway, it seems like everyone can always recall some of their favorites ones when...
The Itch You Can't Scratch in Public
Very few annoyances can rival the magnitude of frustration of the Itch You Can’t Scratch in Public. And it’s not like you can ignore it, either. The itch just grows on you like some kind of freak fungus and gets worse as time progresses. But, don’t worry, I’m here to help with a few of my personal tips! This is all assuming that you don’t have a restroom nearby to...
Friday Night Nostalgia: The Weekend Rental
Oh how gratifying it was to come home from school on a Friday to pick up a brand new (or an old favorite) video game or movie rental for the weekend from your local video store. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted by that familiar video store smell of plastic and stale popcorn. And so much fucking candy! Shelves brimming with shit to rot your teeth! Of course, many times the rental itself...
