Image
Well, 2021 may have been a shitshow in a whole lot of other ways but it sure was an amazing time to be a wrestling fan. AEW has rekindled the passion for wrestling in so many of us not only with their ability to create amazing moments but also with some of the best wrestling the world has seen in years. Enjoy my picks for the top ten AEW matches of 2021...

D-Rock's Top 21 Albums of '21

Image
Photo by me at Shoreline Amphitheatre in California at a concert featuring Korn & Staind 2021 may not have been an especially good year in other ways but it was most certainly an amazing year for music. Not only did live music return (which I have complex but mostly joyful and grateful feelings about) but dozens upon dozens of fantastic albums were released this year. So I thought it only fitting to celebrate the year in music with this list of my top albums of 2021. Bearing in mind that rankings are always a little complex and these things are constantly shifting (my top three are honestly pretty much interchangeable based on my mood) blah blah blah all art is subjective, etc....enjoy my top 21 albums of 2021!

Image
Welcome to Day 29 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon  The 29th theme of the month is  "I Know What You Did in the 90's."  Bust out the flannel because today we're watching a movie from the 1990's (or the 1890's I guess but that's probably not as fun). We enjoyed our 80's day today is equally as special because we were alive for this whole decade. Here are a few recommendations from our childhood, taken from our own watchlists for today... Group Pick: Blair Witch Project (1999) directed by Eduardo Sanches, and Daniel Myrick is a once in a century type of horror movie and it ended the 90's and kicked off the last 20 years of horror. This film has been emulated by many but still remains a one of a kind original. What better way to celebrate spooky season by getting lost in the woods with this classic film.  D-Rock: - I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) directed by Jim Gillespie - 1h 41m - Amazon Prime, Peacock - The People Under the Stairs (1991) direc
