Those Were the Days

It hurts a little bit to look at these - because I had the whole Matchbox collectors suitcase of them (differentiated from the inferior Hot Wheels which had a radial tire style carrying case) all of which I sold at a garage sale. ERGH. Like everything else I loved as a kid, it's all gone - Death Star playset - Star Wars figures, cowboys and indians, do-nothing machine..). That's why I have so many toys today. Nonetheless it's nice to see 'em again.

Theme Restaurant Redux

Some are gone - some still exist - I remember Arthur Treacher's, Sambo's and MAYbe Golden Skillet - I'm not sure. There was something called Golden Bear around here too. Zantigo's and Rocky Rococo's should be on here as well - although there's still one of each open in the Twin Cities (which I have yet to visit..)

100 Most Annoying Things of 2005

My favorite I am familiar with:

Did I really lock my doors? I forgot to tell myself that I locked each door out loud so I will remember that I actually did it. Or maybe the memory of locking that door is just a dream and I really did not do it. Why am I wasting time writing this while my iron is burning my house down?

Top 50 Music Videos of 2005

If you refuse to pay for TV like me (thus saving $500 - $1000 per year) you may not have seen some of these videos. Beck's still makes me double-take - has technology actually progressed this far? Are robot backup dancers at concerts far behind?
