My Top 10 TV Shows

Back before there were gazillions of television networks creating original series programming, May was one of the big ratings sweeps months. You’d see big episodes of shows leading up to big season finales, sometimes containing cliffhangers that you’d have to wait until the following fall to see resolved. On that note, I’m counting down my […]

My Top 10 “Weird Al” Yankovic Song Parodies

I’m doing another music related Top 10 list this month, and I figured April Fools’ Day would be the perfect day to celebrate one of my all-time favorite musical heroes. “Weird Al” Yankovic. I’ve seen him twice in concert, and I own all fourteen of his studio albums. Honestly, I think he deserves to be […]

My Top 10 Words

I apologize that this Top 10 list is a little later than expected. And I apologize for two weeks without a post. I’ve had quite a busy few weeks at school. I’m the after-school drama director, and we just hosted the first round of the state drama festival. My students were wonderful, gracious, friendly, supportive, […]

My Top 10 OK Go Music Videos

I’m a child of the MTV generation, so I appreciate fun or innovative music videos. Unfortunately, that channel no longer shows the volume of videos that they used to in the glory-day 1980s, but the videos are readily available on YouTube. One particular group has taken video making to a new art form, releasing them […]

My Top 10 Books Read in 2015

First off, Happy New Year! I hope you all have a wonderful year. Remember that mathematically, this year will be greater than last year: 2016 > 2015. A few days ago, I did a special year-end countdown of my Top 10 Songs of 2015. Now it’s New Year’s Day—the first of the month when I […]

Okay, it’s not the first day of a month, so why am I doing a Top 10 list? Well, it’s the end of the year, which is the perfect time for Top 10 lists! What follows are my favorite songs of the past year, continuing a tradition I started last year before I even did […]

My Top 10 TV Christmas Specials

It’s the first day of the month, so it’s time for a Top 10 list! Being December, my daughters convinced me that this month’s list needed to be Christmas-themed. I debated several possible lists, and I won’t mention the ones I passed aside because I can use them in future Decembers. You can see the […]

My Top 10 Pixar Films

Before The Good Dinosaur comes out, I thought I’d take the opportunity to rank the previous fifteen full-length films from Pixar. Remember, this is my opinion only, so feel free to disagree. I’m sure you all have your own favorites. I’ve given Honorable Mentions before or explanations why others didn’t make the Top 10. Since […]

My Top 10 2015 MLB Playoff Teams

I love baseball, and here comes the 2015 Postseason. I would have posted this on the first of the month like my previous top 10 lists, but not all playoff spots were locked up. It went down to the final day in the AL West and second Wild Card races. The ten teams in the […]

My Top 10 Doctors (from Doctor Who)

I had so much fun counting down my Top 10 Twilight Zone episodes a month ago that I decided to make this a monthly feature! In anticipation of the new season of Doctor Who starting in a few weeks (Sept. 19), I’m going to do a Top 10 list of the incarnations of the character. […]
