Lately I’ve really gotten back into all things 90s. Not really surprising because that was my era.

Pauly Shore
I’ve watched Encino Man many times over the years and it still holds up. I recently rented In The Army Now because of my whole military fetish and it wasn’t quite as good as I remember. Of course, Pauly Shore always was an acquired taste but I had a crush on him. I remember when I was at an Angel con a few years back and James Leary told us about him trying to trick girls into coming to his place by mentioning his dogs. I was like “It would work on me”.

Film
Netflix currently has some fun 90s movies on streaming including 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, Josie and the Pussycats, The First Wives Club, Scream, Spice World and Sugar & Spice. (You must already be logged into your Netflix account for those direct links to work.)

90s Style
I’ve even been looking back at the 90s makeup fondly while watching Untamed Heart and Threesome which is funny because I didn’t like it when some of my friends actually did their makeup like that back in Jr. High. Some of the fashion was fun and some was awful. Plus we even got bad advice. When I was in Jr. High I was in a teen book club. One month I got a book on beauty that featured a photo of the cast of 90210. It said if you want to look good try a white tee tucked into jeans (they were high waisted). You can see most of these are from TV shows but I’m not going into TV because I watched a lot of it back then and it would take forever. Some of it doesn’t stand the test of time. I did love SNICK though.

I just had a ball reading tons of articles about 90s fashion. Check them out.

Film
I have to admit that I love streaming Netflix over my blu ray player. Recently they added Woody Allen’s Whatever Works, Nine Dead starring Melissa Joan Hart and Weeds Season 5. I watched Whatever Works as soon as they added it and it was excellent. I haven’t watched Nine Dead but MJH has been tweeting about it for months. I watched about half of this season of Weeds on the net when it was airing and wasn’t getting into it as much as previous seasons but still want to catch up.

Veik makes DIY Lady GaGa Barbie Dolls. They are quite a sight to behold.

Music
Airborne is back on tour and they have a new album out on April 20th. I saw them live (for free, yay!) in Bmore a few years ago & they were so much fun. I’m pissed because I just looked all over for the photos I took at the show & can’t find them. They are similar in sound to AC/DC.

Yes, the movie looks bad, there’s no way they’re dating and she bitched about the shoot but I still like it.

Somewhat Offensive Leprechaun Joke

This used to be my all time favorite joke. I read it in Maxim years ago. P.S. I didn’t write this joke. If you aren’t of average height (some people prefer 1 term while others prefer another), I’m not trying to demean you.

A guy goes to the restroom in a bar. While at the urinal he looks next to him and sees a midget. He says “Wow, you have a big dick. I wish I had a dick that big.” “Well I’m a leprechaun. I can grant you one wish.” “Really? How?” “If you let me fuck you I’ll grant you that wish.” So while their having sex the guy yells out “I can’t believe I’m getting fucked by a leprechaun!” The midget says “I can’t believe you think I’m a leprechaun.”

Through the Years

2011-Laid Up, Writing About Weed Movies & Salivating Over Harrison Ford

(original tweet-Cuz it killed my back 2 b up 4 more than an hr earlier this is my lame #stpattys night, just 4 ford)

(original tweet-Yes, i bought it cuz of the shape n price. Xd. #whisky)-It's very important to buy Scottish whiskey on St. Patrick's Day, doh!

I was still in some muscle pain due to having recently moved a giant picnic table so I wouldn’t have to read in the rain during a sojourn (info on that in my Charlie Sheen style post). I was laid up for about a month. So I passed on going out on St. Patrick’s Day because I didn’t want to be jostled. While I was chilling I decided to do a Netflix post on my top drinking movies. I couldn’t find any aside from those that I’d written about in my Top Sex Comedies on Netflix Streaming post so I put together the choices/outline for my Top Stoner Comedies On Netflix Streaming for 4/20 post instead.

Plus I drank whiskey and watched Morning Glory for the first time.

2010-Bingo & Sarah Jessica Parker



Went to bingo in St Patty’s attire. There was a talent contest so I sang, Beer by Psychostick because I thought that it was funny. Plus I don’t know Irish songs. Not surprisingly the mostly elderly crowd was not amused. A 30+ seller in a band tee said she liked it though. My father told a joke. It went over well but he did not win. Our *completely unbiased* opinion is that he was robbed.

I didn’t go out drinking that Halloween as I hadn’t had fun solo on the previous St. Patty’s Day. When I got home I drank modified White Russians and watched Did You Heart About the Morgans? for the first time.

2009-Super Old Time Rock N Roll



That year I really wanted to go out so I dragged someone who doesn’t drink with me as a DD. I got super trashed and sang karaoke. I started out with Maroon 5’s Harder to Breathe (of course). I later moved on to Old Time Rock and Roll because I love it and thought that the over 60 karaoke DJ would enjoy it, he did. When I say super wasted I mean it. I had to prove to the bartender that I had a DD to order my first drink (yay, for having to get hammered to leave your house, thanks social anxiety!) and was later told by my DD “I’ve never seen someone so drunk” and she used to work in a bar. Yeah. Oh I also hit on and was rejected by ugly guys which is always a treat.

2008-Right To The Fell’s Point (the best one!)

That year I was living in Bmore and we had all decided to go out for St. Patty’s Day. Of course we decided to pregame before. Guitar Hero is obviously important to include in your pregaming activities. I didn’t have any money so I decided that I had to get as drunk as possible before we left since I couldn’t buy drinks at the bar.



I got pretty wasted (in a good way though) and barely remember the bar. We went to Rodos and even though they were at capacity they let us in because we were regulars.

Fuck, the list is in the back of this pic but is unreadable! If you ever partied at our place you know what I'm talking about.


After that we came home and drank some more. I remember drinking Natty Bohs and then making Jason eat a spoon of the icing I was eating which was really funny. BTW-Natty Bohs and icing don’t go well together.

Yo Boy Plumbers
The next day I was woken up by banging on the front door. There was a girl in bed next to me. I assumed it was Donna. At the door were 3 young guys who were yelling ‘Yo, let us in, it’s the plumbers”. I would later refer to them as the Yo Boy Plumbers. I let them in and 2 tall skinny guys and 1 tall fat guy entered. Our usual maintenance guy was an older short guy so that was unusual in itself. Two of our radiators had been broken for like a month and we kept calling and they had finally shown up. They kept telling me how it wasn’t even cold but we had been freezing our asses off. The thing was it was 9 or 10 in the morning and these guys were incredibly high. They kept hopping around and laughing and making jokes which is really annoying when you are hung over.

They saw the table full of cups and bottles and were like “Late night, huh?” and said they hadn’t gone out. Then I took them to my sister’s bedroom and they fixed that radiator. After they left I took care of the dog and got ready. My sister woke up and yelled at me. It turns out that my friend Jen was the one in bed with me because she didn’t want to drive home drunk. Donna had been in her room the whole time they were working on the radiator and she had been sleeping in very little clothing under her sheet.

2006-Death & Johnny Depp

Okay, according to my photo archives this is from 07 but we're at Baja & look adorable.

In 2006 my sister Donna called and invited me to visit her in Bmore (before I lived there I often visited) because she knew that I had never partied for St. Patty’s Day before (I’m a later bloomer). We went out to the now defunct Baja Beach Club. It was okay but not great that night. The next day my mother called and told me that my aunt Charlotte had been found dead the day before but hadn’t told me because she didn’t want to ruin St. Patrick’s Day for me. Donna and I wet to the carnival and to see The Libertine (great flick BTW) to take our minds off of it. Trying not to cry at a carnival isn’t fun. Another year my late brother called and asked for the above joke that I had told him when he was drying out for a week a month or two prior.

Unlike usual I actually did a few fun things earlier this month (03/05 & 03/06). I was originally gonna do one or more photo makeup tutorials but being completely inexperienced with that I found that I took the close pics at weird angles & bad lighting (thanks stupid bathroom) and I was in a hurry. So I’ve scrapped that in favor of making fashion & beauty polyvores.

Underland
I saw Time Burton’s Alice In Wonderland on opening day. I’d been anticipating it since I saw the trailer last summer and didn’t want it to get spoiled for me. I had already started receiving questions from ISs on ChaCha the night before because it opened at midnight in big cities. This is a hick town so I didn’t want to look to costumey. I thought that the film was fun and looked great. Some people seemed to be let down but I enjoyed it. I read a review that said they overdid it with the whole Eat Me, Drink Me thing but I’d always loved that part in the original so I dug it. The 3D was okay but probably unneeded.

Ireland
That night I had tickets to see Druid featuring the Three Irish Tenors at the State Theater. I had assumed it would be like the last time I saw it performed a few years ago. However instead of being a sedate classic show featuring 3 Serious Guys some of the members had left & more were added turning it into a Psuedo Boy Band. It was a very different show. They were a little cocky and the choreography was a little stiff but it was still a good time. Last time it was a more low key vibe and after the show I talked to all 3 guys and they volunteered to sign my playbill. This time they announced that they would be signing for people who bought their cd. I didn’t see myself listening to that very often so I just went up to the lead singer and told him that I had enjoyed the show both times I’d seen it.

China
Then on Saturday I went to a Chinese restaurant with my mother and brother. We had been trying to go for a month but all of those snowstorms kept happening and my brother lives right outside of town on a dangerous road. They had a nice selection of tasty sushi that day.

I recently did a photo post about hot actors when they were younger, “When They Were Young”, and was thinking well there have to be some actors who are young right now that I also have the hots for. It took me a little longer though because I’m not into the who Taylor Lautner/Zac Efron types. I like the oddballs or deeper guys. Yes, I know that 5 of them turn 30 sometime this year but tough cookies.

Shia LeBeouf (06/11/86)
Here’s the thing, I hated him back in the day. I used to be close to one of my nieces. We would always hang out for a week or two every summer. One summer she had me watching Even Stevens. So I thought of him as this annoying little kid when he popped up in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle & Constantine. Then he hosted SNL and I no longer worried that he would ruin the 4th Indy for me. I even own that Rear Window knockoff he’s in. I don’t think that the trailer for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps looks that hot but he does in his suits, yum.

I’ve had a thing for him since The 40 Year Old Virgin. He has also appeared in Freaks and Geeks, Superbad, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno & Observe and Report. He’s recently dropped some lbs to be the new Green Hornet. Check him out in these SNL sketches The Fast and the Bi-Curious & Like a Boss

Ben Foster (10/29/80)
It was very hard to find some good pics of Foster because he is known for his dark, disconcerting roles. As someone who was in high school during Columbine I watched and discovered him in the flick Bang Bang You’re Dead in 2002. You may have also caught him on Six Feet Under or in X-Men: The Last Stand or Pandorum.

Macaulay Culkin (08/26/80)
Blame the Oscars for reminding me of Culkin. He’s only a little older than me & I too watched Home Alone. But it was his turns in Party Monster & Will & Grace that gave me a little crush on him.

Jason Schwartzman (06/26/80)
Schwarztman burst onto the seen in Rushmore and then continued with roles in Slackers, Spun, Shopgirl, Marie Antoinette and The Darjeeling Limited. I knew I was crushing hard when I still wanted him even when he was completely creepy in Slackers. I also own a Phantom Planet CD and find the part where he fingers that chick in The Darjeeling Limited very hot.

Channing Tatum
(04/26/80)
I haven’t seen all of his films but I have to say he is totally hot in Step Up (where he met his future wife, aw) and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. He is sweet in interviews I’ve read about him. I will be renting Dear John when it comes out because I have an embarrassing penchant for romcoms. Oh and you know he’s totally ripped.
