The times when changing the channel on the television directly corresponded with moving the right side of the antenna approximately 4 inches to the left are nonexistent. The memories of only being able to...

The movie Fantasia is one that has captured the minds and hearts of many.

I had an embarrassingly narcissistic moment the other day. Let me explain. So, I was drinking my coffee and amaretto (it's OK; it was after noon . somewhere), when I caught sight of my reflection in the liquid's bubbles. I was mesmerized. I tilted my head back and forth and watched my likeness do the same. I bobbed my head like a pigeon, stuck out...
