Back In My Day

Kids these days don’t know how good they have it. Back in my day, we had to walk to school, barefoot in the snow, uphill both ways…

Ok, that’s not true, but it sounds totally badass. It’s like when your great grandpa regales you with a story about how he got hit by a sniper in WWII then had to walk five miles to the nearest military base with one leg. And somehow he got gangrene and frostbite in the process.

Like, when I’m a great-grandparent, are all my really great stories going to start with, “So, this one time I was in a Twitter war with the President of The United States…”?

Technology has inarguably made our lives easier, but it has also made us soft and lazy with far less physical battles to test our fortitude and inner strength. Seriously, the only real struggle I had growing up was downloading music from Limewire.

If you don’t know what Limewire is, consider yourself lucky. If you DO remember what Limewire is, take a stroll down memory lane with this funny comedian.

It’ll make you thank your lucky, millennial stars for iTunes.



Lights, Camera, Antics

A movie is only as good as the actors, producers, and directors involved in making it. In other words, you can have a fantastic movie script, but if you decided to hire Keanu Reeves and Jessica Alba as your leading characters, I can pretty much guarantee you won’t win an Academy Award.

Unless the Academy Awards has a category for “Best Wearer of Bikini,” in which case, Jessica Alba may have a chance.

Part of what makes for a cinematic masterpiece is the ability to transport the viewer to another time and place. The audience suddenly forgets they are watching actors and actresses on a fixed stage, instead feeling like they are part of a real story unfolding.

This is why it’s entertaining to hear what happens behind the scenes of some of the most beloved and iconic movies of our time. From pranks to crushes to unique acting methods and impromptu speeches, learning what happens when the cameras aren’t rolling often gives us a deeper appreciation of our favorite movies and TV shows.

Here are 44 random facts about popular rom-coms that will have you looking at these films in a whole new light.
