Everybody Loves Raymond; But We Love Nitpicking More

I’ve watched and re-watched Everybody Loves Raymond so many times that I can probably quote every single episode. And yet, I still manage to find more and more inconsistencies every single time I re-visit it. I’m sure there are many more than the following, but these are the things I stumbled upon during my latest re-run. Enjoy getting your minds blown, folks. Debra claims that she said ‘No’ three times […]

8 TIPS ON HOW TO BE A BETTER BARTENDER

There isn’t a bartender out there that thinks, let alone says out loud that he/she is not a good bartender; especially not the ones that undeniably consider themselves ‘the industry’ folk. Proclaiming that you are in the industry instead of just brushing off your bartending days as something you do to pass the time and pay the bills until your acting career takes off or whatever carries with it a […]

RESTLESS MIND, BODY & SOUL

Psychologists often like to point out that your self-destructive nature isn’t doing you any favors; however subtle they are about it in between of all the ‘how do you feel about that’ inquiries. They say it’s up to you to change things if you for things to be different. They’re not wrong. For one, they don’t want to fix you entirely, nor can they. It’s not beneficial to them due […]

“I Hate People. I Wish I Was Drunk”

Anyone that’s ever stepped foot into the restaurant industry has at one point or another uttered the words “I love people”. The amount of truth that lies in that statement is equivalent to the amount of health that is contained in a tub or Ranch dressing. I do however believe that we, the hospitality industry folk weren’t always this jaded. I do believe that ‘I love people’ wasn’t always just […]

Russian Snow Angels in Los Angeles

Living in Los Angeles has been an endless stream of questions like “So where do you like it better, here or Russia?” and “Don’t you miss the snow?” Truth be told, while I like snow and I think it’s beautiful, I don’t want it around me for longer than a span of 48 hours. That’s precisely why living in LA is so great. If you wanna take your winter parka […]

Valentine’s Day – A Social Mindf*ck

Like a broken heart, the nation splits into two pieces – the hopeless romantics/believers and the skeptical pessimists. I myself am leaning towards the latter, but I must admit, the hopeless romantic rears its ugly smug little head every now and then. A lot of stereotypes come out to play on Valentine’s Day, and unlike the curly haired fat baby with wings and arrows, who happens to be the culprit […]

CRASHING – A TV Show that Desperately Needs to Get Renewed for Season 2

I discovered this show completely by accident after coming home one night at 3AM and instead of just going to sleep like a normal person, turning on Netflix for the sake of background noise. Crashing was a random pick – the first thing that popped up on my ‘Suggested’ list. I wasn’t planning on even paying attention to it as I was already pretty tired. Next thing I knew, episode […]

Pizza & Beer – My Kind of Party.

I’m a firm believer in the fact that there’s no such thing as a bad beer, unless the beer is actually bad as in spoiled. Otherwise, all beer is good in its form; it just needs to be paired properly to an occasion and mood. Beer like Corona for example is considered “bad” because the bottle is made out of glass that’s much lighter than say that of Dos Equis […]

One of Those Stereotypes that Proves to be True

Out of all the stereotypes out there I often find the ones about Asian people to be most entertaining; mostly because they have an extensive record of being precisely on point. Not only are they usually the smartest ones in the room, and with Indians by their side they will probably rule the world one day, but they’re also pretty consistently terrible behind the wheel. Most importantly though, as business […]

SAD REALITY ABOUT REALITY TV

What is reality TV? First and foremost let’s face the fact that there’s not a fine line between reality and reality TV, but a very thick, almost solid black line between the two. There’s nothing ‘real’ about reality TV and everyone knows it; and those who don’t know it, need to face the sad reality, get their noses out of their television sets and get their minds back into reality […]
