Legend or Lame Vol. 1 – Sting (Part 1)

We here at Forum Magnum are pretty much a family. In fact three of us are family and our other contributor is the closest thing you can find to family without the blood or legal designation. Like any good family we agree on many things, and we disagree on a fair amount as well. This idea is all about the disagreements. Legend or Lame is something that we will revisit from time to time in this space to settle, once and for all, the...

Old School Game Night

I love a good party. Even more, I love to host a good party. I think my love started when I was a kid and my parents would entertain.

Not that I really wanted to hang with the grownups, but I could tell from the sounds and smells coming from downstairs, they were having fun. Now that I am an adult, I have hosted...

Say Cheese

I could probably live on snack food, it is a fact. I am the queen of chips and dip, French onion, ranch, queso, guac, you name it I will eat it.

There have been reams and reams of print spent on the cultural impact of this program over the past 40 years, the stars produced from the show, how this is basically the Harvard for comedians, etc. I could...

Great Scott!

So if any of you out there are like me, you may be slightly obsessed with the technology that Robert Zemeckis promised us 2015 would hold in his 1989 sequel Back to the Future II: How Biff Got His Groove Back. You know the ideas…flying cars, pimp Nike’s that lace themselves, and the creme dela creme the Hoverboard. Well great news 2014, the Hoverboard may be closer to reality than we expected! There is a bad ass...

Pools Are Awesome, Am I Right?

Man, if there’s one thing I’m gonna miss about Arizona, it’s pools. Nothing beats floating around in the pool with a couple beers (no glass bottles of course), and enjoying the blazing hot desert sun. Even swimming at night rules, but don’t take my word for...
