TBT to TRL

Now that MTV has answered all our prayers by bringing back TRL, I thought I'd get nostalgic for a minute to remind all the youngins what the O.G. music matriarch of cable TV once was. This show paved the way for Carson Daly, it made photo booths cool, and once it even shut down Times Fucking Square when the Backstreet Boys showed up to release Black and Blue. They had to lower the shades, people!So please enjoy these photos that only ever graced things like Teen People Magazine and my binder. ...

Barbie’s Inspiring Women collection of dolls make the best gifts. (And not just for girls)

This awesome work of Dune super fandom comes courtesy of Matt Caron, who I previously wrote about here on BB after he collected and wrote about the complete set of Japanese Dune translations from Hayakawa Publishing. Clearly, he knows a thing or two about prophecies and Butlerian Jihads.

Netflix documentary looks at mob-affiliated minor league hockey club

Of course there's a tax crime connection. A defunct Connecticut minor league hockey club is the focus of a new Netflix documentary. The film's tales of the brawling Danbury Trashers offer this weekend's diversion, along with a bit of a tax connection. I fell in love with hockey when I went to my first game, a Washington Capitals match back in 1981 shortly after we moved to the National Capital area. Those early Capitals' teams sucked majorly. But they had some good individual players. ...

Drake Disses Kanye West on New Song “Betrayal” with Trippie Redd, Calls Him Old & Burned Out

Looks like the beef between Kanye West and Drake is far from over. Despite reports that the two rappers had patched things up and squashed their long-running beef, a new track from rapper Trippie Redd featuring Drake is stating otherwise. Last month, a Twitter user tweeted that Drake should release his new upcoming album Certified Lover Boy on the same day Kanye drops his highly anticipated album Donda that he continues to push back.
