I know what you are thinking, "Who cares, it's just an old video rental store."

Not so much my good friend. This wasn't your typical video rental store...this was my first video rental store where I discovered a love that I have kept with me for over 20 years.

Do You Know Why You’re Circumcised? It’s Really Dumb [Video]

Have you heard the saying, "A day spent without learning something is a day wasted"? (Umm, me neither.)  

Well, consider this day not wasted. It might not be something you ever wanted to learn, but it might be something to consider later.

Have you ever wondered why you're circumcised? (Assuming, of course, you are.)

Let’s Never Forget Tom Green’s ‘The Bum Bum Song’ [Video]

Back in the late '90s, there was a show on MTV that many still remember. But anyone that didn't live during that generation will never know.

It was a comedian named Tom Green, and he had a show that was shortlived titled "The Tom Green Show." This was before "Jackass" became increasingly popular and was based on the crazy antics of the Canadian comedian on the street.

At the time, though, he wrote a song that was No. 1 in the U.S. at one time.

GET-EM-N-GO!

I was sent this picture on Facebook recently, and I found it extremely ironic that this picture not only is awesomely old. It does also feature our Program Directors name! Which lead me to believe that he has been secretly working here for decades.

The First Video Game Console I Played Named Atari 2600 [Video]

I was born in 1987. Around this time in video gaming, the Nintendo Entertainment System was dominating the video game market and everyone at the time already forgot about that wood paneled console named Atari 2600. Bleeps and Boops on the screen, and squares battling squares. It was primitive, but for it's time, it was groundbreaking.

The Store That’s No More Named ‘Media Play’ [Video]

Well all gotta grow up, and can't be a Toys R' Us kid forever (or can we?) We eventually stop actually playing with action figures and end up wanting CD's, Guitars, Movies, etc! Media stuff! Sadly, due to online streaming and such, many record and movie stores have had to close their doors. Gone are the days of sifting through records and CD's for hours searching for something awesome. Media Play, was that type of store.

Those Odd Things Known as Pogs [Video]

We all have something that we remember growing up with.

Some things lasted for years. And there are a lot of things that we look back and and say, "Who came up with this?"

Effective marketing to the child mind grabbed our imaginations, and said that we had to have whatever it was they were advertising.

The HOTTEST TOYS.

CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO GAME!

One thing I remember from my childhood that was very popular for a minute was Pogs.
