It’s 2016: Let’s All (Re)Decorate For Fuller House!

Originally posted on Cookies + Sangria:
So remember a couple months ago when Netflix (pause: I was typing this and a Fuller House commercial legit came on the TV – it’s weird this popular streaming service is advertising on network TV. ANYWAYS) released the first promo for Fuller House? If you don’t, maybe it’s because you blocked it out after CRYING SO MANY UNEXPECTED TEARS. https://youtu.be/uhInIOKwGXU It was the first look into the new era of a Tanner family, or rather “Fuller” family since that’s DJ’s married name now, and how things have changed since 1995. Specifically, it’s comprised of shots of an empty house, which looks all too familiar and different at the same time. For many of us, this home isn’t just the ‘house that built the tanners’, it’s the ‘house that built me’ as a viewer as well. But of course they can’t keep the exact same set from 20 years ago. It’s TV, things need to updated and shown that time has passed, so in conjunction with our ongoing series Let’s All Decorate,…

Interesting: Video trying to prove Daniel is the real bully in The Karate Kid

This is a fan made video by YouTuber J. Matthew Turner which attempts to prove that Daniel Russo is in fact the villain of the story and not Johnny. The video deems Daniel as a “violent sociopath” while it depicts Johnny simply as the “flawed hero”. I have to say, this video has convinced me wholeheartedly. Let’s just hope this guy doesn’t make any more videos going forward, because if he somehow convinces me that Maverick in Top Gun is the bad guy or that drinking 3 gallons of Pepsi a day is bad for you my life will be over as I know it. Enjoy the video!

Short Life Span: Website Offers Nostalgia Themed T-Shirts for 36 hours at a time

RIPT Apparel was a site recently brought to my attention and I have to say it has one of the coolest twists on a t-shirt website I’ve ever seen. To explain how cool it is, I will now present the next part of this post in song form: “Ohhhh, There is this site…” What’s that? No one can understand to tone of melody or a song through text? Fair point, maybe I’ll just explain the site then. RIPT apparel sells unique, limited edition pop culture designs every day on tees, hoodies, posters and more! Each design starts at $11.00 and lives for 36 hours before it’s laid to rest in our Graveyard forever. Not all the products are Nostalgically themed but all are really cool and original. The crazy part is that each item is unveiled daily at Midnight (CST) and is only available for 36 hours! What does that mean? First off it means they do a hell lot more work then I do on this blog and…

Wheaties Box Athletes

Originally posted on The Nostalgia Blog:
What is the ultimate goal of an athlete? To play professionally? To win a championship? To win an Olympic medal? To beat the domestic abuse/blood doping accusation? The answer is yes to everyone of those questions because athletes are greedy. However, while setting out to accomplish all of those goals they may end up on the cover of a Wheaties box and they will also pretend like that is the highlight of their career even though we know it isn’t. With that said, there was a time when being on a Wheaties box was a huge deal (at least to the kids who ate the cereal and wanted nothing more than to be that athlete on the box). I don’t think being on a Wheaties box carries the gravitas it once did back in the day, my breakfast is now a steady diet of left over pizza and diet Rockstar energy drinks (gotta keep the calories down somewhere). Frankly, I don’t really care, this is The Nostalgia Blog and…
