Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

destiny's child

There are some days where you come home from school, enter the world of pop culture, and have an overwhelming sense of magical, mystical, heartwarming deja vu.

Today was one of those days, people.

With everything you could possibly want from the late 1990s outside of TRL being on TV when you got home, the stars aligned today to give so many of us what we’ve wanted for so long. Or at least sophomore year of college.

Bruno Mars

If the modern-day prophets who swear by the Mayan calendar are correct, then we only have a few days remaining on this wonderful paradise of a planet called Earth. Sad I know, but you couldn’t have asked for a better year from a pop culture perspective to bring things to a close. Every aspect of the arts – from music, to theater, to film, to gaming – was firing on all cylinders throughout the year. Read more

Sufjan Stevens – November 28, 2012 – The Lyric Theatre – Oxford, MS

Expectations were high for me heading down to Oxford last week for this show. I had heard that Sufjan Stevens puts on memorable concerts that are both exciting and weird. For this particular performance it was advertised that he would only be playing Christmas music highlighted by sing-alongs chosen by the giant “Wheel of Christmas”. Makeshift “hymnals” were even handed out to each audience member in case they need a refresher on the lyrics to hits such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, “Jingle Bells”, “Joy to the World”, and “Auld Lang Syne”.

Kramer-Seinfeld-Portrait

Ah, 90’s entertainment. For today’s generation of youngsters, it’s probably an era akin to the digital Stone Age. Internet was dial-up, cell phones were attached to bulky bags in our cars and Google was some search engine weird people used (all the cool kids in computer lab were on Yahoo! or Netscape).

MTV Video Music Awards…?

9-9-99

For weeks leading up to September 9, 1999, this date was the tagline at the end of every commercial for the MTV Video Music Awards. And hearing this date on those ads got seventh grade me all jacked up because I was freaking excited to watch some of my favorite musical acts win prestigious awards for the music and videos they had put out over the previous year.

The Death of the Mix Tape/Mix CD

Posted on by Warner Russell in Featured, Misc. Posts, Music | 1 Comment

This past weekend my lovely wife was out of town. Naturally, I did what most men left home alone for a weekend would do. I ate many more peanut butter sandwiches than I should have, watched about 15 episodes of 30 Rock, and bought beer I knew she would never let me buy otherwise. And it all was great.

I also deep cleaned the house and had dinner ready for her when she got back home. If you are a man and want to get in good with the lady in your life, do those two things. You will instantly become the man she fell in love with again, instead of just being the guy she shares a house with.

But this isn’t about me touting what a good husband I am. Read more
