One word: Plastics

Perhaps one of the best catch-phrases of all time, created even before the concept of a catch-phrase existed. The Graduate is a timeless classic I never tire of; from Dustin Hoffman's aimless drifting to the famous soundtrack, it's just so darn entertaining.

Buy it Now! Is California’s next savior the garage sale queen?

You have to hand it to Meg Whitman. Where most people saw old hats, used lingerie and moth-ball wigs, she envisioned a multi-billion dollar juggernaut called eBay. Who knew people would become so smitten with an online garage sale? Next broken subject: California. It turned out the Terminator did manage to...

How To: Hold a Loreto style Clam Bake

The next step is to place the clams, wide side down in the gravel, tightly spaced together.

‘Planet of the Apes’ classic movie moment: It’s a madhouse… a madhouse!

Human see, human do. Oh what a bummer when apes take away your former Playboy centerfold girlfriend 'Nova' and then proceed to relentlessly hose you down. To boot you just crashed your spaceship, lost your voice after being shot and discovered an odd upside-down planet where said Apes rule all. A madhouse....

‘When Harry Met Sally’, A favorite movie moment that makes every man cringe

I can't say a whole lot about this one. It has one of the best punch lines, "I'll have what she's having", in movie history. It's also enjoyable to watch Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal in their prime. Some great chemistry (I think)! WATCH: When Harry Met Sally... I'll Have What...

Another classic movie moment: Michael J. Fox an all American (well, Canadian) kid
