See the Kids From ‘The Goonies’ Then and Now

A reoccurring theme of movies during the mid-’80s was that of scrappy kids beating the odds. Daniel-son had to defeat the Cobra Kai in ‘The Karate Kid’ and the teens of Calumet, Colorado had to fight off most of the communist block in ‘Red Dawn.’ But probably the biggest underdogs were ‘The Goonies,’ a band of misfits from the goon docks of Astoria, Oregon who had to outlast a fugitive family to find the amply booby-trapped treasury of 17th Century pirate “One-Eyed Willie” and prevent their parents’ homes from being turned into a golf course.

Not Cool, Elevator… NOT COOL! [Picture]

People are very health-focused these days and strange initiatives are thought up. There are smoke outs where nobody is supposed to smoke cigarettes and there is also this weird "Take The Stairs" day brought on by the jiggliness of most Americans. The only problem is that it's not just fat people that use elevators... seriously handicapped people might also need to use them. This elevator is being a dick.

Jackie Likes Geeky Dress Up

You all remember the movie "Avatar" I assume? Well I bet none of you went to the extreme I did when going to see it. Unfortunately for me your past is never really in your past.  With digital cameras, camera phones, and everything else that can capture an image your past can jump up on you at any moment

Busted Rock Stars: Marilyn Manson

I have never been arrested, thank the lord (because he knows I sure have been close...) but I love looking at mugshots when celebrities are arrested! They look so sad and angry all at the same time, like when your a kid and your mom yells at you for something... because isn't that what rock stars are, just some big kids who know how to have a good time?
