My Top 10 Artists That Aren’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but Should Be

During the final week of June, my daughters and I went on a really cool road trip. We went to Ithaca, NY for a college visit for my oldest and to explore the gorgeous gorges there. Then we went to Niagara Falls and rode The Maid of the Mist and viewed the falls from about […]

My Top 10 Episodes of Lost

A little over two years ago, I counted down my Top 10 Favorite Television Shows. Topping that list was Lost. I loved the story telling: the connections between the characters; the non-linear nature of the narrative with its flashbacks, flashforwards, and flashsideways; the depth of the characters; the genre mash-up of action, mystery, romance, science […]

My Top 10 Sesame Street Songs

It took me awhile not only to write this Top 10 list but to decide what it would be this month. I have a long list of future Top 10 lists, and I try to vary them up, but none of them were jumping out as the one to do. It was a conversation that […]

My Top 10 Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

In case you’ve been under a rock this past weekend, box office records were shattered by Marvel Studio’s release of the film Avengers: Infinity War. It had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever, breaking the record set by Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Why people were so drawn to Marvel’s movies is because of […]

My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Albums

For the past two April Fools’ Day, I devoted my Top 10 list “Weird Al” Yankovic, counting down his best parodies in 2016 and his best original songs in 2017. This year, I decided to count down his best albums, particularly the 14 studio albums (no compilations) he has released in his glorious Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Fame-worthy career. […]

My Top 10 TV Show to Movie Adaptations

Not sure when I came up with this idea for a Top 10 list, but once I did, I started researching and compiling because it was a strong one. Here’s the list that will forever connect television and movies—My Top 10 TV to Movie Adaptations. Here are the ground rules. To be eligible for this […]

My Top 10 Winter Olympic Events

This month, the twenty-third Winter Olympic Games are behind held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Whenever the Olympics come around, it’s always exciting, and just like most of the world, I tune in. I tend to see more of the Summer Olympics because I’m home most of the summer, but I tune into the Winter Olympics […]

My Top 10 Books Read in 2017

It’s time to kick in the New Year with not just any Top 10 list, but by annual tradition, it’s the Top 10 Books I read in 2017. Remember, the actual release date of the book doesn’t matter; all that matters is that I read the book in 2017. I read ten fewer books in […]

My Top 10 Songs of 2017

I’m gonna start this special year-end list by saying that 2017 was a wonderful year for pop music. This is my fourth year posting this countdown on the blog (and my 34th year doing it), and I don’t think I’ve had a more challenging time choosing the top song—or even narrowing it down to ten […]

My Top 10 Holiday Pop Songs

It’s the first day of the month, so it’s time for a Top 10 list! Being December, let’s go with something holiday themed again. Last year it was Christmas movies, and the year before that was Christmas TV specials. Let’s go with a music list this year, but let’s not limit it to Christmas. There […]
