Here is Flashback Fridays Chapter 29, a weekly series of entertaining flashbacks of blog posts I’ve written over the past 20 years of blogging. It’s surreal to consider that I’ve been blogging for 20 years.

Using the Wayback Machine to select a few old posts that we believe would be interesting and humorous and post them each week in this Flashback Fridays series. So, let’s look at what was going through my mind all those years ago.

When I was younger, I was such a nerd. Please use your discretion when reading these posts because I used profanity a lot.

Let’s get to Flashback Fridays Chapter 29!

Reality, Schmeality – Flashback Fridays Chapter 29

July 27th, 2005 by MacBros

What the hell is it with reality TV these days? Finding a decent TV show to watch now without having it bumped off by yet another reality show is nearly impossible. I have to admit that I am a Survivor watcher, but even that show is getting old, in fact, I feel the entire concept of reality TV has just gotten to the point of vomit.

Seriously! Some guy could walk down the street and puke all over the place and if it gets caught on camera, the nations watching it on TV the next day. Are we that hard up to see other people make asses out of themselves and get a break in life just because some network got you to watch the crap they force in your face?

Where the hell do they get these ratings? Who the hell is rating this crap? Whatever happened to a good old sitcom show?

So let’s see, what do we have now? We got, Survivor, American Idol, Canadian Idol, Average Joe, Who Wants to Marry a Millionair?, The Real Gilligan’s Island, Joe Smoe, Rock Star INXS, So You Think You Can Dance?, Fear Factor, I Wanna Be a Hilton, Hells Kitchen, Simple Life, Simple Life Interns, and there’s an upcoming one called Tommy Lee Goes to College. I know I missed some, but that’s just because there are just too damn many to remember!

Now you take all these shows and put them in a weekly lineup in the TV guide, and you have no more room for a half-decent show that you can just lay back and relax to. A show with a story. I’m sick of all this bullsh*t that forces you just to sit there gawking at the boob tube and drooling like a lobotomized zombie.

Even the comedy shows are making fun of all the tripe that’s on TV these days. Comedy Ink’s funny sketch, “Extreme Spelling Bee” is a cross between American Gladiator and a Spelling Bee.

This is a plea to the TV Networks, please start paying the writers a bit more so they can come up with some more interesting things to watch and get rid of the reality sh*t. Thank you.

That’s my opinion, and you’re entitled to it.

Oh, you caught me! It seems that the attention span of today’s TV watchers has taken a nosedive. It’s like trying to follow a squirrel on a sugar rush! And sadly, it appears that bingeing on mindless content might just be the path to our own extinction. Talk about a plot twist! But hey, let’s hope our brains can still find some stimulating shows or books to keep us going. Otherwise, we might need to invent an attention span booster—caffeinated brain snacks, anyone? 😄

This Theme Sucks – Flashback Fridays Chapter 29

July 28th, 2005 by MacBros

I’m actually starting to dislike this theme. I’m thinking about replacing it with a simple tables page and throwing out the DIV tags. I’m going back to KISS, (web designers know what that means) because I’m running the site from home and notice the loading times are a little slow and the server is running hard with all the PHP coding and CSS crap.

So, expect a new look soon.


Ah, the good ol’ days when DIV tags were as desirable as a snail on roller skates. Tables, on the other hand, were the cool cats that kept your browser groovin’ without breaking a sweat. But fear not, my friend, for times have changed, and DIV tags have finally caught up to the hippest trends.

They’re now the kings and queens of the web, capable of incredible feats that’ll make your head spin like a squirrel on a caffeine binge. Ain’t that a hoot? So bid adieu to the table domination of yesteryear and join the DIV tag party, where endless possibilities and a whole lot of HTML hilarity await!

New Look In Progress – Flashback Fridays Chapter 29

July 29th, 2005 by MacBros


I’m going to be making another change to get rid of this depressing blue theme. I’ve opted to use a table-type theme that has some warmer colours. I’ll be working on this until the Keiths get a hold of me.
Just bear with me while it’s up and the bugs are gone. You’ll see it switch back and forth.

Hmm, now where did I put that Beer Tower?

If you were a loyal follower of my ancient blog (yes, I’m that old), you’d probably remember my never-ending quest for the perfect theme. Ah, those were the days when designing themes was a piece of cake (sorry, no tables involved!). I mean, who needs sleep when you can spend hours tweaking colours and fonts, right? Well, let’s just say my creations were more like fleeting flings than long-term relationships. But hey, at least I got plenty of exercise swapping themes like a fashionista on a shopping spree! #ThemeAddict

Can’t Concentrate – Flashback Fridays Chapter 29

July 29th, 2005 by MacBros

Well, I’ve given up on the makeover of the site for now and switched it back to this blue moody one.
I’m headed back out to the same place I was last week. Can’t stand sitting around here in this box.

So it seems the guys from “The Labour Camp” are going to be out on the town. But maybe I’ll get lucky? Attn: Pretty Ladies! John’s off the leash. Corey is headed out to watch some noisy band called Obsidian Reign, personally, I don’t see what he sees in that stuff. I prefer the good ol’ TALTED Rock N’ Roll music.

I mean, when was the last time you tapped your foot to some guy screaming at you? If you want to know what good taste is, visit Diane’s site and listen to her radio blog, you’ll be subject to some good real talent in Rock N’ Roll History

Well, I got to go and get ready.
I wonder if I should close the windows? Is it gonna’ rain tonight?

Have a nice weekend Ya’ll

Well, well, well, the good old days of being a young, wild, and free bachelor! Ah, the thrill of hopping from bar to bar, charming the ladies with my irresistible wit. Oh, and let’s not forget the epic live entertainment that added that extra spice to the atmosphere! But hey, let’s face it, those youthful escapades require a level of energy that’s simply not available in the “adulting” stage. Oh, the joys of aging gracefully… or should I say, aging with a hint of suckiness! Cheers to the hilarious journey of life! 🍻

APO-DOMPERIDONE, DOMPERIDONE – Flashback Fridays Chapter 29

August 23rd, 2005 by MacBros

This is the medication that the doctor gave me. I was reading the information that came along with it and the side effects. Let’s just say my eyes popped right out of my head when I read certain side effects.

Here are the uses first just so you know what it is:

This medication increases movement through the digestive system. It is used to treat symptoms of stomach disorders. It may also be used toprevent nausea and vomiting caused by certain medications.

And now for the side effects. Hold on to something because this is going to be one hell of a ride!

Headache, dizziness, dry mouth, nervousness, flushing, or irritability may occure the first serveral days as your body adjusts to the medication. (I get that way when I’m hung over)

Trouble sleeping, stomach cramps, hot flashes and leg cramps have also been reported. (Isn’t this called the menstrual cycle in women? GAWD!) If any of these effects continue or become bothersome, inform your doctor. (Don’t worry, when I start b*tching like a chick having menstrual cramps with of a leg or stomach cramp, my Doctor will be the first on the phone.)

But wait, there’s more!

Notify your doctor immediately if you develop: chest pain, slow/fast/irregular heartbeat, (Now if I can remember correctly, wasn’t this the reason I went in, in the first place?), swelling of the feet or ankles, difficulty urinating, swelling of the breasts or discharge from the nipple in men or women.

(HOLD IT! Lets back up here! Discharge from the nipple in MEN or women? Do I even want to take this?), menstrual changes, sexual difficulties. (Sexual difficulties? Can’t get any more difficult than hardly any.)

But this drug is supposed to help right?
If I start lactating out of my nipples, I’m going to freak out!

Haha! I burst into laughter revisiting that one. It brings back memories of the time I ended up in the hospital with chest pains, only to find out it was just a pesky case of GERD. But seriously, can we all agree that the side effects were pretty hilarious? I couldn’t help but chuckle! 😄
