An Ode To “The Flintstones” On Their 50th Anniversary

It has been 50 years since “The Flintstones” first premiered on ABC in 1960. It’s easy to forget about what a huge influence the Yabba-Dabba-Doo had on our existence, but those boneheaded cave-dwellers were the original gangsters of prime-time cartoons.

9 Things I’ve Learned One Year Into A Relationship

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of “Dead Ringers” — the mega-awesomely creepy David Cronenberg movie which made us vow never to date identical twin gynecologists after we rented it on VHS one rainy day at Blockbuster.

One of my fondest memories from my youth is reading Anne of Green Gables and watching the PBS movie version with my childhood best friend Meika over and over and over again.
