Oh This Happened: Conan O’Brien Goes to Teen Beat Magazine

Now this is some 90s Nostalgia people! Below is a clip from when Conan O’Brien (back in his Late Night days) visited Teen Beat Magazine (Oh yeah, Teen Beat Magazine!) too achieve his dream of being a Teen Idol. This video has all the 90s stuff you want: Posters of Leonardo DiCaprio, references to The Backstreet Boys, Hanson and Planet Hollywood, 90s style clothing and an interview with then teen idol David Gallagher! Yes David Gallagher! Formally of the hit TV show 7th Heaven and current guy who just served you your pumpkin latte at Starbucks. Enjoy! Advertisements

The Evolution of Hockey Video Games

In my opinion, hockey video games are the greatest sports video games. Many people may disagree with that statement but keep in mind, people doubted me when I said that Mac and Me would be the highest grossing movie of all time (If I don’t look at the facts, I can’t be wrong! U-S-A! U-S-A!). Anywho, a gent by the name of Matt Larkin wrote an amazing piece on the history of hockey video games (you can read it in its entirety here). However, we know many of you just want the nuts and bolts of it along with some fun videos (that you won’t even sit through, god, how lazy are you?) to go along with it. So here is a summary of the article.

Never Forget: 90s photos of Marky Mark

Marky Mark, the man deemed so sexy that women wanted to have sex with him!

I’m pretty sure for 6 weeks back in 1992 if he even tried to put on a shirt his body would repel like a white blood cell would repel a virus (that’s right I know science stuff! Impressed?). So let’s take a trip down memory lane but in this case memory lane is paved with candy…eye candy! Enjoy the pictures while I really re-think my sexuality. Who wouldn’t want to date this guy…
