Best New York Based Television Shows
The greatest city in the world is New York; there’s no other place that could come close. As a film and culture junkie, some of my favorite films (and the greatest films of all time) take place in this great city. As someone who also lived and worked in this amazing city, I can confirm how it offers a variety of life, and every train ride in makes the new day feel like an adventure, even the grumpiest of Mondays somehow get better when I see the skyline as my train passes through the Meadowlands of New Jersey.

Funniest 'South Park' Randy Marsh Scenes
We should all thank the divine forces that led Trey Parker and Matt Stone to decide to further develop some of the characters that weren’t so involved in first few seasons of South Park, because that decision brought us the funniest Randy Marsh scenes. Before this happened, Randy was just Stan’s dad and not much more, having only the occasional screen time without catching the attention of the viewers. Thankfully, the creators of South Park realized the potential in Randy’s character and he quickly became an integral part of this hilarious animated TV show. South Park is still airing, so even though we tried our best to choose some of the funniest South Park Randy Marsh scenes, there sure are many that we just couldn’t include since Randy is one of the funniest characters in the show.

Geeky Weddings That You Won't Believe
I planned my wedding in two months, in a city I had never lived in, before Pinterest. So what I’m saying is that it was all generic fake floral centerpieces in a church gymnasium and everyone drank 15 cents a gallon red punch. What flavor was it? Red. I already said that. (There was no other flavor, sadly.) For those of you who have the good fortune to have a reasonable period of time to make wedding plans and a future spouse who’s just as nerdy as you are, here’s your inspiration. Whether you love video games like Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, book series like The Hunger Games, or pretty much everything geeky under the sun, here are some couples who really went the distance when it came to making their special day just THAT much more special. For the most part, the bride and groom made the detailed costume pieces, centerpieces, bouquets, shoes, favors, and much more, showing a whole lot of dedication as fans as well as to each other. And if you just can’t get enough of this nerdy magic, check out the incredible website When Geeks Wed, where you’ll find pages upon pages of every geeky wedding detail you could possibly dream of.

The Timeless Lessons of Captain EO
Some of you immediately remember your first experience seeing the science fiction classic Captain EO. You were either at a Disney park between 1986 and 1997 seeing the original short film, or you were there between 2010 and 2014 when the film was brought back to Disneyland and Disney World as the Captain EO Tribute. You may recollect being completely spellbound by the “4D” production, classified as such for its 3D effects and moving seats, smoke, and lights there in the room with you. Alternately, you may have unpleasant memories of being shaken up and down in your chair to the beat of some music you didn’t enjoy and the sight of some crazy, campy, 80s extended Michael Jackson music video that made zero sense. For me, Captain EO is a magical journey into space with a timeless message that deserves another watch, even if you’re just clicking a YouTube link and not there in the theatre (a place you can no longer go to see it, since it was replaced with less exalted 4D programming like Honey, I Shrunk the Audience).
