Nickelodeon Hints a New Network Dedicated to ’90’s Shows Named ‘The Splat’ [Video]

Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Doug, Cat Dog, Angry Beavers...so many great classic cartoons and shows that I used to watch as a kid back in the '90's.

Everyday I would come home from school, I would either play Super Nintendo, play outside, or watch Nicktoons.

Now, years later, I can watch all of my favorite kids shows again.

This Little Kid Could Not Care Less About Playing Basketball [Video]

I had parents who encouraged me to play sports when I was a kid, which was great, as long it was a sport I liked. When I insisted I did not like softball and did not want to play, my parents pulled this old mind trick on me: "How do you know you don't like it if you haven't tried it?"

So, when I was eight, I suffered through an entire softball season. It was hot, dirty, boring-- and to no surprise to me (I'd tried to tell them!), I hated it.

In retrospect, what I should have done was take a page out of this kid's book--  and just stand there, every single game, with my hands in my pockets.

If you were ever forced to play a sport you hated, you can probably relate to this little guy.

Kids Reacting to the First iPod Will Make You Feel Super Old [Video]

I had this same feeling the other day when I saw "Now That's What I Call Music: Volume 55". Fifty-Five!? I remember when the first CD came out (actually, it was probably a tape) in 1998 and Harvey Danger's "Flagpole Sitta" and Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy" were on it.

Anyway. I'm old. And this video proves it --  these young kids are just amazed and bewildered by the very first iPod, which came out in 2001.

Disney is Really Piling Up the Bodies With All the Death in Their Movies!

I know I'm late to the party, but I just go the chance to go see Big Hero 6 yesterday at the theater. I really liked it, the story was good, the lighting and graphics were freaking unbelievable and, of course, how could I not love Baymax? According to Free Beer and Hot Wings, that's me!

But something happened sort of early in the movie that reminded me of Disney's love for killing people off.
