What ever happened to Shaggy?

Here was what I remembered about Shaggy: He shared the same name as Scooby-Doo’s best friend, he was once in the Marines, and it wasn’t him. Even though you thought it was him….it wasn’t him. Shaggy started his music career in the early 90s and had a minor hit with “Oh Carolina”, but didn’t burst onto the Top 20 charts until 95 with “Boombastic”. Shaggy’s biggest success came in 2000 with his 6x platinum album “Hot Shot”. The album featured the humongous radio hit “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel”. But unfortunately for Shaggy, after reaching the top of the charts, there only one way to go next and that was down. His follow up albums “Lucky Day” and “Clothes Drop” didn’t do well in North America, but had a strong showing in Europe. I had always thought that Shaggy had disappeared from the limelight and the music scene altogether, retired and living off his previous success. But, to my surprise Shaggy is still pumping out music. His newer releases are geared towards Reggae which is …

Why did I recycle!!!: Old Pop Cans Worth Big $$$

While the picture above is not the actual can I own, I do still have in my possession a 1992 Toronto Blue Jays Word Series Coke Can. Little did I know back in the day how valuable pop (or soda) cans could be in the future. The unopened cans are particularly valuable (especially if it is factory error), but like trying to keep an action figure in it’s original packaging, who can resist downing 24 cans of Pepsi in one sitting? It’s basically impossible. Had I resisted over the years, I could have made on mint on eBay selling these cans apparently. I mean think how much more Dr. Pepper I could have bought with $25,000! So, as dumb as it sounds, save your Twilight (or whatever terrible movie is on Coke cans these days) and World Cup 2014 Cans (unopened) because they could be worth something some day….and if they’re not? Hey, at least you’ll have 20 year old Coke to drink. It’s Win/Win!   Unopened Empty Coke Can (Factory Error): $25,000 Apparently there …

S Club 7 Reunited

Okay, this is actually old news. But it’s the first time I’m hearing of this, so I’m going to assume it’s the first time you’re hearing of this. Apparently S Club 7 is back together. Don’t remember S Club 7? S Club 7 was the British Pop group that was manufactured in 1998 by former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller. The group rose to fame through a BBC TV sitcom-like series (similar to the Monkies) which helped them sell over 10 million albums of cliche 90’s pop music. Girls liked them cause the guys were cute and music was bubble gum. Guys liked the show cause the girls were hot…and the guys were cute. The group disbanded in 2002, but have since returned in 2012. Not fully though, only 3 of the original members returned to form S Club 3. The best comment on YouTube for this video is…”They’re all fat now. Mind you, would still give Jo one ;)”. Good one. Some of the members have decided to try their fate at a singles …
