Coca-Cola has answered the prayers of many, many 90's kids. USA Today reports that Surge is back on the market. Sort of. For a (possibly) limited time. A listing popped up on Amazon Monday for a limited supply of the liquid gold … er green, and the soda quickly sold out.

In the process, he won season 11’s title of “America’s Favorite Dancer.”“To know that so many people love what you do is the most special feeling in the world,” Ubeda said in studio on “Ralphie Tonight.” “It was inc...

GIRL TALK: Are you up for the job?

Let’s talk about sex, more specifically, hand jobs. Every girl thinks she is a master of the male anatomy and that all we need to do is glance in its general direction to make our guy happy, but it is actually more complicated than it looks. When it comes down to getting ready to do the mattress mambo, do we really know what we are doing or are we just making up the steps as we go along?

JUST FOR THE HEALTH OF IT:

I see nonsense lifting and useless exercises being done all the time. But then I always get the backlash statement, “well, at least I’m doing something and not sitting around.” A fair statement I suppose.However, I think there’s a certain type of person that always comes back with a statement like that and in my 20 years experience I’ve concluded that it’s the people that usually get no where with their training.I’ve alwa...

Counterspy will infiltrate your heart

Summer is called the game drought because there is a distinct lack of big blockbuster games. That is where the smaller indie games really stand out and thrive. The last few weeks have marked the release of some great indie games and one of the stand out titles of this season is the espionage thriller, “Counterspy”. One thing that makes spy thrillers so exciting is the high steaks, and what can be higher then stopping the United States and the Soviet Union from going to war by sabo...

B Movie Corner:

While the zombie theme has spread into popular culture thanks to show like The Walking Dead and large Hollywood blockbusters such as World War Z, the true heart of these films lies in those which established the genre a number of years ago.Films such as George Romero’s classic Night of the Living Dead and of course the sequel Dawn of the Dead laid much of the groundwork and rules for what many regard as the modern zombie movie. There was certainly a great deal of other direct...
