Throwback Thursday 1959

November 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

This is my 5th installment of Throwback Thursday and so far I’ve stuck with a theme of 9’s.  You know 1969, 1979, 1989, etc.  So because I’m a simple man, this week’s throwback is to 1959. As this was 10 years before I was born, I had to do some deep research on this year.  In doing my research is really does seem like a simpler time.  Anyway, on to 1959…. World Events 1.  Alaska and Hawaii admitted as states 2.  Buddy Holly dies in Day The Music Died plane ...Click for More

Throwback Thursday 1999

As I sit down to write this week’s Throwback Thursday, the Kansas City Royals are 1 game away from being World Champions.  It drives me insane as like 90 people live in Kansas City verses a bajillion in Chicago and the Cubs haven’t even played in the World Series since 1945. Well all that will change when the Cubs announce the signing of Joe Maddon to finally lead our team out of the wilderness.  Him even signing with the Cubs I believe was mentioned in Revelations as one of the ...Click for More

Throwback Thursday 1979

I’m not going to lie to you people, Throwback Thursday is one of my favorite articles of the week to write.  In my real life I’m both an attorney and a CPA so work is really kind of boring numbers and crap.  This article let’s me look back fondly to times when things were simpler. For no particular My first two posts covered 1969 & 1989, for no particular reason FYI.  So I guess I might as well knock out 1979 this week.  I don’t remember a lot from the 70’s ...Click for More

Throwback Thursday 1969

October 16, 2014 // 2 Comments

Last week was the inaugural Throwback Thursday and you guys seemed to like it.  As you guys are kind of pains in the ass with what you seem to like and not like, if we find something remotely popular we will beat it into the ground until you beg us to stop. We’re kind of like network TV that way. The year 1969 brought us a lot of things (namely me as it’s my birth year).  As I wasn’t around for the sixties, this is more of a book report than actual account. Anyway, ...Click for More

Throwback Thursday 1989

I cant believe none of us here have ever thought of doing a Throwback Thursday post over here at MWTVG. I got the idea myself while watching the Goldberg’s last night.  Man what a great show.  They always start the show with it was 1980 something… What I love most about the show is the songs.  Last night featured one of my favorite guilty pleasure songs from 1989 by The Bangles called Eternal Flame. It got me thinking back to 1989 and wondering what else was going on back then.  ...Click for More
