Music Mondays return with the band Friends

Posted in Music on January 21st, 2013 by Nick

friends-manifestA while back, I started a Monday thang called “Music Mondays.” In pure Winslow fashion, I posted a few times and it fell by the wayside for my TV rantings. Because I’m probably a bigger music addict than I am TV/Film, I want to give this blog space a little more balance, hence, the return of MUSIC MONDAYS!

Instead of posting reviews (which I’ll continue to do from time to time), I’m going to post a Song of the Week, Band of the Week, or whatever else rocks my boat. It could be a brand new band, a new-to-me band, or an old favorite, but I’ll offer up something fresh and fun for your Mondays to ease the pain of the new work week. Music helps. It’s a proven fact. I think I read it in Cliffs Notes or something.

This week’s music comes from the band Friends. Their album Manifest! hit stores in June of 2012, but they recently fell upon my virgin ears thanks to a buddy-ol’-pal o’mine, DoomCake. The album’s lead track “Friend Crush” and single “I’m His Girl” are a solid representation of what this Brooklyn outfit is about: indie pop, funk, disco, synths, yada yada yada. Just listen already!

I’m all about sharing! If you’ve got something everyone should hear that should be featured on Music Mondays, hit me up in the comments, on Twitter, or on Facebook. Til next time.

Top 10 Most Watched Series Finales Ever

Posted in TV on June 2nd, 2010 by Nick

As noted, we’ve had to say goodbye to two staple powerhouses this month: Lost and 24. Neither came even close to garnering the high ratings of these Top 10 classic finales. Let’s put this shit into perspective, shall we?

The top 10 most-watched series finales are:

1. M*A*S*H: 105.9 million
2. Cheers: 80.4 million
3. Seinfeld: 76.3 million
4. Friends: 52.5 million
5. Magnum, P.I.: 50.7 million
6. The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: 50 million
7. The Cosby Show: 44.4 million
8. All in the Family: 40.2 million
9. Family Ties: 36.3 million
10. Home Improvement: 35 million

Thoughts:

1. How does 105.9 million viewers even happen!? It’s also sort of unfair – DVR is clearly affecting numbers today. Too bad DVR is like crack and we’re all addicted. Also to note: I don’t think I’ve ever seen a full episode of M*A*S*H. Wah, wahhhh.

2. Friends is one of the most overrated shows ever. Lame that it’s #4.

3. How the shit is Home Improvement on this list? I liked it when it was on, but really? It was a show about a guy who grunts all the time while getting hurt on his cable access show. Nothing beat it for the 10-spot? Ooof.

4. I miss Family Ties.
