Hold on… there's a reality show about WHAT?
McFly

Yeah. There is a reality show in Russia about cops hunting down car jackers! I don't know about you, but if the show is done right, that can be some quality shit…but it could be a flop. As my friends know, I love watching reality competition shows. I also hate a lot of reality competition shows. It all depends on the formula you use and how to keep the show fresh and interesting. For example: Dancing with the stars is not a good reality show IMHO. They have frequent commercial breaks, their show is judged by the audiences (yeah, I know they have their own judges too, but the audiences essentially choose the winner) and there is no real content to the show.

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well.

For rounds that sounded easy…
McFly

It wasn't that easy at all for you guys! Our first round was called Duh, and although we had a few 8s and many 7s, some of you were completely stumped by some of the answers. I'll admit, I have never heard of Etta James, but that was the only hard ball we threw at you. In round 4, we tried to make it sound as easy as a kindergarten. That didn't bode well either, considering we gave you the first letter to every answer. The average was somewhere around a 6… not bad, but it had potential to be so much better! Every once in a while, you guys need the challenge. It puts hair on your ass, or something like that. Round 8 was unusually strong for the teams out there. The average was almost

I guess you could say this crowd LOVES drugs.
McFly

I guess you could say this crowd LOVES drugs. Or at least that is what round 3 would reveal. It isn't often that we have a Sooner or Later round, and last night was a little different from what you're used to. Usually the clues would deal with something geeky or movie related. Last night? Drug nicknames. Maybe it's the square inside of me, but I probably would have received points for knowing just ONE of the "Sooner" clues. I had at least 9 of the 16 of you turn in the sheet early, and for a few of you, it truly paid off. I had 7 get double digits, although the eventual winners of the night played it safe and didn't turn it in early. They made up for it in the later rounds, obviously,

The end of an Era
McFly

I'm sure this will be a topic of many people's blogs, but it can't be said enough how much the world will miss the impact Jon Stewart has had on America. I remember when I watched the Daily Show when Craig Kilbourne was the host. He had his top 5 lists and I was just kind of "into it". Then Jon came on, and I remember my initial opinion was "that guy? From MTV? Hmm.." and I was completely skeptical of the show's success. I mean Craig Kilbourne went on to host his own late night program. Jon Stewart wasn't much back then, but he needed room to grow. Starting around 2004 was when I really started to hit my Daily Show stride. Their coverage of the election drew me in. I was in college and had

Pepsi! Pepsi perfect!
McFly

I am not sure what exactly Pepsi Perfect is or was (was it a thing?) but I know that is what Marty Jr. orders in Back to the Future 2. What could be so perfect about a Pepsi? We've had Pepsi Free (Free of calories and caffeine) and Crystal Pepsi… maybe Perfect is some sort of specially brewed clear Pepsi used with the water of melted glaciers sans caffeine and calories? Either way, I want to be able to order one in October (per the movie) and have it rise out of the counter top. Only delivered by a Max Headroom's version of Ronald Reagan. My god. What writers thought that the power of Max Headroom would have evolved into the 21st century? The foresight of our past writers/directors

I am the Pac-man of the house!
McFly

So, I have a very strong affinity for round 6 tonight. My two strengths as a simple person are video games and movies. So, to say the least, I wish I had been on the other side of the questions tonight. I also enjoy creating examples on things like this. Much like my Pacman of the House… although I wouldn't be able to choose which Man of the House movie to choose. The Chevy Chase and JTT classic or the Tommy Lee Jones and Cedric the Entertainer, uh, not-classic? Either way, they both contained the song Gonna make you Sweat by C and C music Factory. It is all practically the same movie, when you really look at it. Speaking of Pacman, I just got my Pacman up and working on Tuesday. When

Excitement like $25,000 pyramid
McFly

To me, the celebration and excitement of $25,000 Pyramid (and it's brother shows) is some of the most enthusiastic and genuine in the history of game shows. I would get just as excited to see people win the pyramid at the end. I think a small part of it has to deal with the fact that only one person on the team has anything invested. The celebrities that are helping them have no weight in the matter, other than a promise to do their best. To see people like Betty White and Billy Crystal completely killing it on the show. It was so much fun as a child to be a part of that excitement. Game shows don't exactly have the luster like they used to. Everything now seems to be centered around what

Well that was me yesterday until I actually got to Zio's and realized how awesome their staff and their quizzers are.

Fourthy of July-ey
McFly

Hey there, all you Americanos. How excited is everyone for the Fourth of July coming up, along with our country's best women soccer players and their pursuit of another World Cup title? I mean, how could we ask for a better weekend? I am flying out to Ohio tomorrow to celebrate all of these wonderful things with my family. First, the fourth of July has never been a big deal for me, but as a teacher, it is one of those days where I can embrace a day off with everyone I love. I have learned to embrace July 4, because when I was younger, it was a very complicated holiday. I am a vegetarian and I didn't drink back when. So, from what I understood, meat and beer were the two reasons anyone whose

At least he wasn't CUT with the axe.
McFly

It's always an easy shot to take when you're a liberal and Fox and Friends do something dumb. So I am going to take that shot, because I am no professional. I'm not sure what exactly happened, as internet comments are the best source, I am going to go with that. Apparently, one of the hosts on FnF thought he should take another crack at throwing an axe at a target, although he was advised not to. It was a commercial pause, and he went for it. As most of you know, he tossed it over the target and hit a West Point drummer behind it. Luckily, the drummer was barely hit on the arms and nothing vital. Just imagine that sight. You're drumming in a segment on national television, having the time

Fake Bjork cools our souls
McFly

I always get nervous when there is a curve ball of an audio round like Fake Bjork sings the hits, but everything seemed to go swimmingly tonight. I have to admit that I have a guilty pleasure for these fake singer rounds. We have seen the Fake Swedish chef and Chewbacca, but I think Fake Bjork is definitely on the rise. As for Bjork herself, I don't mind her music. One of my friends 6 years ago gave me one of her albums, and I enjoy it. Not that I am not allowed to like it or that a lot of other people out there wouldn't agree, however, liking Bjork seems to be akin to celebrating Tom Cruise's catalogue. Her poor image to the public, after attacking that news person (google it, if you didn't

You're not dying, you just can't think of anything better to do.
McFly

Easily my favorite movie to quote and in my top 10 all time favorites. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (FBDO) is easily one of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen. I find entertainment in good humor, great characters and not too complicated of a plot. Once it gets too complicated, I begin to lose hope for the plot. Some writers/directors can save the convoluted (Christopher Nolan, PTA, et al), but John Hughes created something so beautifully simple. He gave us someone to root for; someone to aspire to be. Not all of us can directly identify with Ferris' character, but man, do a lot of people want to be him. John Hughes also created some unforgettable scenes, including the scene where Ferris

Who the hell moved my vagina?

The other day in a conversation, I was told, “you are dating us” meaning I was making myself seem very old.  So I had a few cassette “singles” what’s the big deal?  You know what I am talking about right?  Those cassette tapes that only featured 2, maybe 4 songs from an artist or band.  Saved me from having to fast forward through all the songs I didn’t know, who wants to broaden their music exposure by listening to “B” sides? 4 Non Blondes didn’t even have other songs to release on an album did they? The singles also came in these awesome little cardboard sleeves that clearly were much better for the environment.

I like going places and doing things.  My top five movies of all time are: Clue, The Last Unicorn, Ghostbusters, Labyrinth and Babe: The Gallant Pig.

I read a lot. I drink beer. I hate children.  I work in an elementary school by day so this is something of a conflict.

I was the prom queen at my high school.  We only had about 30-something seniors in my graduating class, but it still counts bitches.  It still counts.

Where in the world is Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego?
McFly

I'm talking about the original computer game. That thing was like crack to a young Benji. Hell, so was that game show! I don't know how they got away with canceling the show, but I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Those sort of detective games are very popular in my brain. I was the kid who was waiting until the 5pm time slot for Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego? It was a habit I just didn't want to shake. I also have to thank my BFF Tyler for owning the computer game and letting me play it for hours at a time. Even when he didn't want to play it. I don't know why I am so addicted to those "solve" games. Maybe it is my logical mind. Or maybe it is the thrill of putting together

Why Jaden Smith is ruining our Society
McFly

By Benji BillmanLet's be honest. We can all agree that we have no feelings either way toward Jaden Smith (at least I didn't until he fucked up). I know what some of you are thinking: "Benji, back off. He is only a kid". As someone who works with kids, let me begin with saying: being a kid is not an excuse. Nor is being a celebrity's child. He has done very little to contribute to our society, and now he is attending his prom in an all white Batman costume. This is a cry for HELP, people. After all of the shitty work he has done for us, he is practically throwing himself to the public. Waiting for a super hero to rescue him. All symbolism aside (as I couldn't find the

Whatever Happened to Predictability?
McFly

Newsman, the paper, or evening TV?! Speaking of how predictable things are, I was out to brunch a few weeks ago, and I was caught up singing the Full House theme song. Immediately after, my friend started singing the Family Matters theme. Almost like clockwork, I stared up the Step by Step theme song (DAY BY DAY!!!). This ended us with the Perfect Strangers theme song. We all had a good laugh and settled down at brunch. Then one of us spoke up. They said "I wonder who wrote all of those songs". Luckily, we live in a generation where we are literally a second away from those answers. It came to our attention that IT WAS THE EXACT SAME GUY WHO WROTE ALL FOUR OF THOSE THEME SONGS! What are the
