My iTunes is Depressed

We used to be so close. We would shut ourselves up in my dorm, and spend hours doodling on my homework, and catching up on reading. I would highlight the hell out of my books, and you, iTunes, would provide the soundtrack. In those days it was all Jet and Patrick Park. That’s when we […]

The Games We Don’t Play

Around Shore HQ, we’re fans of games.  Card games, mind games, drinking games…but there are three that we simply cannot play without someone throwing a fit. Game #1:  Monopoly Monopoly takes too long and generally loses its appeal after 3 or 4 loops of the board.  Megan and I may be able to stick out […]

Sports Bucket List

The concept of the bucket list is not a new one, though it seems to have gained some steam lately. Thank you Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. Deriving from the Old English phrase “kick the bucket”, this is a list of everything you want to do before you die. The idea is a nice one, […]

Why Do I Love Terrible Things: Alec Baldwin

I never cared all that much about Alec Baldwin before 30 Rock.  Frankly, I wouldn’t have known him if I saw him on the street.  Also, there are 4 Baldwin brothers who are all actors, so even if you’d said “that’s Alec Baldwin!” when he walked by, I wouldn’t have known the difference between him […]

What You’ve Missed In Reality TV This Summer

For some reason, no one I know has the same appetite for reality TV that I do.  I never thought of myself as one of “those” reality TV nuts, but recently more than one person has made a comment about how they’re just not as into it as me.  Megan and Heidi also both say […]

Guest Post: Loving Your Team — The Four Pillars of Fandom

As a college sophomore I witnessed one of the most ridiculous football games you will ever see. In 2005, The University of Oregon beat then 18th ranked Oklahoma in a game that left both sets of fans complaining about the refs after an historic comeback by my Ducks. Down 13 points, our quarterback threw his […]

Who Should Justin Timberlake REALLY Marry?

Justin Timberlake.  Singer, actor, dater of boring women.  I know his engagement to Jessica Biel isn’t new news, but I’m still upset about it.  There are much better choices he could make.  Let’s explore them! The terrible couple together in 2010. Kate Miucci.  She’s also a singer/actor/comedian.  She’s also cute and funny and quirky.  Sure, […]

Why Does Anyone Date John Mayer?

Taylor Swift is dating a Kennedy. Surely, this will end in heartbreak and a hit single about what a jerk he is. She will certainly mention his famous family name, and I doubt he’ll actually deserve it. I’ve already expressed my doubts on Taylor’s ability to tell a break up story fairly, but there was […]

How to Not Hike the Pacific Crest Trail

1) Don’t take any practice hikes. You grew up hiking,and it’s basically just walking anyway. 2) Read a book about deaths in Yellowstone. Focus especially on the people killed by bears. Become convinced that if you spill even a little bit of food on your clothes, or wear deoderant, a bear will literally drag you […]

Rank a Rapper!

Recently, Megan and I were discussing music and somehow devolved into ranking rappers.  The thing about this ranking is that it’s non-standard.  How so?  Check it out: 1.  Drake Drake, we decided is better than your ex boyfriend, who wrote raps on the toilet at work; but not as good as this video of singing […]
