It was the late ’80s. Every guy was trying to affect the Don Johnson look, every girl had hair bigger than life, and I was dealing with some serious acne and an identity crisis of my own.

So I thought: what better way to end off my … Continue reading Sam’s Friday Top 5: “Friends” Quotes
Isn’t it funny how in so many TV shows, when the main character wants to chase a suspicious individual in a cab, the cabbie never wonders what’s going on? Just tip the guy a hundred bucks and he asks no questions. Have you ever thought about doing that in real life. I mean, not really … Continue reading Follow That Guy!
