Misheard Lyrics

My work laptop died today. That would be the work laptop that has pretty much everything I need to do my job. In order to keep from going “postal”, I have found solitude in 80’s music all day (just ask the folks that follow me on twitter). That reminded me of this wonderful clip. Enjoy the weekend friends. I’ll be back Monday with a post called “What Hurts The Most” and it is NOT about my work laptop…. Continue reading Misheard Lyrics

Random 80's Item – Kangaroos

Have you been to the sporting goods store “Finish Line” recently? If so, you may have noted that their stock of “throwback” tennis shoes is beyond belief. It was while standing in this store that I found a pair of “Roos“. My mind instantly went back to the pocket on the side and spokesman for the shoes like Walter “sweetness” Payton and Clyde “The Glide” Drexler. While I personally never owned a pair of “Roos”, it doesn’t mean I didn’t want a pair. How about you? Did you have a pair of “Roos” and if so, what did you keep … Continue reading Random 80's Item – Kangaroos

Thanks Paul Blart!

“The Boy” and I went to see “Paul Blart Mall Cop” over the weekend. I won’t give a review one way or the other. I will tell you that in true Happy Madison Productions fashion, the soundtrack was filled with great 80’s tunes. As a matter of fact, I cannot get the song below out of my head. I’ve been singing it since the moment we walked of the theater.  Try getting this song out of your head today too… “Can’t Hold Back” by Survivor Continue reading Thanks Paul Blart!

An 80's Christmas

First off let me say that my commentary below takes nothing away from the heart of what this song was all about. Imagine what this world would be like if we all had the vision and heart of Bob Geldof. That being said…. See how many mullets you count was you watch this video. It’s got to be double digits. I included Phil Collins because it appeared that the “party in the back” was creeping over his shirt collar. I always thought it was cool that Sting got to sing a lyric with his name in it. Does Bono have … Continue reading An 80's Christmas

I Can Name That Tune In…

Sunday night, I had the priveledge of attending the Colts and Patriots game at Lucas Oil Stadium with several co-workers. The place was electric due to the Nationally Televised game and the rivalry between the two teams. As we were leaving the stadium, one of my co-workers turned on the radio which promptly played the last three notes of a Stryper song (it was a heavy metal station). Before I could even think about it, I blurted out: Wasn’t that “To Hell With the Devil” by Stryper? They both just looked at me like I was a freak. About two … Continue reading I Can Name That Tune In…

Happy Birthday MudPuppy!

One of the many benefits of Facebook is the “heads up” of a pending birthday for any “friends”. Well I’ve been looking forward to this one all week. Today (Wednesday) is my good buddy “The MudPuppy’s” birthday. I don’t know how or where we met up in the blogosphere, but I think we were linked in some former life as well. He’s on a sabbatical this summer from his blog but inspired my “A UNC Fan” site when he discovered the fun that is Tumblr. I searched and searched for the ultimate 80’s Youtube video for you buddy. This is … Continue reading Happy Birthday MudPuppy!

Yearbook Yourself

For years, people who have met me A.H. (after hair) have asked, begged and even bribed to see pictures of me with hair. Well, thanks to the fine folks at yearbookyourself.com, now you can. I gotta be honest and say that a few of these were “spot on” actual yearbook pictures. Below are a few that cracked me up. Let the commenting and ridicule begin… Thanks to my buddy Joel at CECWorship for the link as well. Continue reading Yearbook Yourself

Quotable:

The other day we were driving with the kiddies in the car. The soundtrack of the moment was 80’s music (I’ll give you one guess who picked that..and it wasn’t Heather). This song came on. While I was having flashbacks to the days of my “sweet mullet“, I did note the chorus. Inspiration in the most unlikely of places…. “Now I believe there comes a time when everything just falls in line We live and learn from our mistakes The deepest cuts are healed by faith” – Pat Benatar (All Fired Up) Continue reading Quotable:
