Pop Culture League: House of Wax

This week’s assignment is in for the Pop Culture League and since it’s the first week of school (according to everyone ever on Facebook posting photos of their kids’ first day), we figured we’d better not eff this up. House of Wax: The local Wax Museum is having a fire sale and you have the opportunity to add a life-size,...

Pop Culture League: Olympic Hobbies

The assignment came in for this week’s League of Extraordinary Bloggers. Being the non-sports types that we are, we totally have this covered… “If _____ was an Olympic sport, I’d have a gold medal around my neck.  What’s something you are really, really good at doing?” Linz: I’ve written before on Pop Rewind on how I wasn’t a Nintendo kid...

Pop Culture League: Shelfie

Many of you may remember the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, ran by Brian over at Cool & Collected. The League retired a while back, but was rebooted Monday! The League has gone through some changes, including a name change to Cool & Collected’s Pop Culture League. Which means we can still call it the League and get away with it....

Compare and Contrast: YTV vs. Nickelodeon

This week’s assignment for the League asks us to “Compare and Contrast”. We can do this with a ton of things—for those that don’t know, Linz is Canadian while Lee is American. During our visits to each others’ countries, we inevitably notice many differences—Reese’s Cups are Reese Cups in Canada. Our Corn Pops are markedly dissimilar. And most important of...

When Television Takes Over

When you’re fourteen, you can’t imagine every voluntarily doing homework.  You count down to the second the day you graduate and never have to take on an assignment again.  It’s funny how your perspective can change as you age.  That said, here’s our assignment for this week’s League topic: “Don’t touch that dial! What shows and/or movies always make you...

Look What I Made: Ghostbusters Painting Edition

This week’s assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers asks us to show something we’ve made. Luckily Lee pays more attention to the things I make than I do because I totally blanked on this until he reminded me of the painting in my bathroom… the painting that watches everyone pee. One of my hobbies is painting with acrylics. I’m...

My Life in One Square Foot

For this week’s League assignment, we must take a photo to show our lives in one 12 x 12 square. That’s do-able. If we could have a slightly larger canvas, a shot of our messy offices would be even better, but we don’t want to scare anyone off. Lee: The original $5.00 sticky note price tag remains. Really… need I...

My Latest Obsession: Orange Drink

As you can tell from our many Obsession of the Day posts, we tend to have a lot of obsessions over here. When discussing the League post, we came to one ultimate conclusion: McDonald’s Orange Drink. Our obsessions run deeply, passionately, but also fleetingly around these parts. The cycle goes thusly: one of us comes across something random. That person...

Christmas Wish Lists

It’s been a few weeks, so we thought we’d better check in with The League of Extraordinary Bloggers and pull our weight. This week’s assignment is “What’s on your Christmas wish list this year?” Since we’re adults (allegedly) with little impulse control (this part is fact), we just buy all the fun gadgets we want throughout the year for the...

Video Game Regrets

We can tell by the old clock on the wall that, once again, it’s time for a League of Extraordinary Bloggers post. This week’s pop culture topic? “Why did I buy that?  Why did I sell that? My biggest regret is…” Lee: My mom once asked me to pitch in and contribute toward the garage sale pile.  I usually didn’t participate, but...
