Top 10 1980s Toys

Remember when you loved Christmas? I mean, when you really loved Christmas? Sure, we all love the holidays. Itís a time to reflect, to relax, to reminisce. But thatís not what Iím talking about. Go back to your childhood and try to conjure memories of the sweet anxiety and desire that ran season-long and culminated in a sleepless Christmas Eve. It was torture then; you can only wish that you could experience such a passionate longing now. Go ahead, tell me about the damages caused by materialism and excessive consumerism. I get it. But try to remember why you too went so ape-shit as a little kid. If you were, like I was, a child of the 1980s, the answer is obvious: the toys back then (like the sugary, brain-rotting cereals) were totally sweet.

The 10 Most Effective Horror Movie Killers

Horror movie villains love to kill people. Actually, that's a bit of an understatement. These guys enjoy murder as much as Grant Morrison enjoys causing readers to shoot blood out of their ears in confusion. Movie after movie, young, usually extremely sexually active teens practically line up to die in the most awesome and gruesome ways possible, whether by a heart-slicing stab from a machete or by a large object plowing through their innards like a fist through Jell-O. And from the safety of our couches or from sticky-floored movie theaters, we the audience get our own personal thrill from criticizing the seemingly mentally challenged victims of the kill-happy psycho as they fail at every possible decision in their attempt to escape their inevitable fate.

But we know our history: most of the Thanksgiving dishes we enjoy today werenít at the original Pilgrimsí feast in 1621, or at least not in the way we enjoy them.

Top 20 Science Fiction Movies of the 2000s

Considering the volume of releases, overall the 2000s have a dearth of truly good science-fiction films compared with the 1970s and 1980s. Many movies based on books that should have been better fell short: Planet of the Apes, The Time Traveler and The Hitchhikerís Guide to the Galaxy. Movies based on other source material that should have been better include Attack of the Clones, V for Vendetta, The Matrix sequels, Terminator Salvation, Transformers, and the 9th and 10th Star Trek flicks.

12 Reasons Why Youíll Be Happier in a Smaller Home

Recently, my parents bought a smaller house. And this past week, while on vacation in South Dakota (yeah, I vacation in South Dakota), I got to see it for the first time. During our stay, I was surprised at how often my mother commented that ďthey just love their smaller house.Ē I wasnít so much surprised that she felt that way (I am a minimalist after all), but I was surprised at the frequency. It was a comment that she repeated over and over again during our one-week stay. Toward the end of the week, I sat down with my mom and asked her to list all of the reasons why she is experiencing more happiness in her smaller house. And this post is the result.

The 5 Greatest and Worst Fictional Presidents

Our long national nightmare is almost overóand by that I mean after todday, there will finally be no more political ads, infinitely fewer political arguments and hopefully less people foisting their political views on you with the tiniest opening. With the nation neck-deep in today's real-life Presidential election, perhaps itís time we hearken back to those pop-culture presidents that either inspired us (not all that tough to do, in the vacuum of entertaining dramatic story arcs) or didnít (which is actually easier to do in the real world, but whatever). After all, helping to decide the leader of the free world is a stressful thing, but at least we can turn these ones off.
