Twilight is back!

So netflix put all of the Twilight saga on it’s network and it’s going crazy.

Watching them over again brings me back I still can’t believe that they got approved for more after how cringy the first movie was but honestly going back to my pre-teen self the first one wasn’t cringy when I was 11.

However me being 20 now I’m still as in love with these movies as I was when I was younger.

I had some thoughts while watching the first movie again and here they are.

  1. I forgot how (literally) blue this movie is.
  2. I also forgot how bad Jacob’s wig is.
  3. I’m pretty sure Bella’s excitement over getting a shitty old truck is the most emotion she shows in the entire movie.
  4. Anna Kendrick is in this! Wow!
  5. I like how all of these dudes are immediately going after Bella and she’s spoken like . . . 4 words to them.
  6. The Cullens walking into the cafeteria is, hands down, the most Iconic scene in cinematic history.
  7. LMAO Edward’s reaction to Bella walking into Biology class. Subtle!
  8. The way Edward is looking at Bella is genuinely disturbing I am screaming.
  9. “I’ll just . . . have to ENDURE it.” Edward is so dramatic.
  10. OK, Bella is so dramatic too . . . a match made in heaven.
  11. Why is Emmett like hanging out of the top of the Jeep? Who casually rides in a car to school like that?
  12. I’d forgotten about the scene where they show someone getting killed by three mysterious figures. The vampire drama begins.
  13. Oh, finally a civil interaction between Edward and Bella!
  14. Edward’s brows are IMMACULATELY groomed.
  15. “It’s complicated.” “I’m sure I can keep up.” Maybe she just doesn’t want to talk to you about her personal life, Edward. Boundaries are important.
  16. I love Kristen Stewart as much as the next person but why is she so damn fidgety in this movie?
  17. “It’s the fluorescence . . . uh . . . ” Honestly Edward is my hero.
  18. THE ICONIC VAN CRASH SCENE YES YES YES.
  19. I know that Bella questions the logistics of this whole situation but how did no one see Edward run at vampire-speed to stop the van?
  20. Carlisle Cullen: an icon, a visionary — protect him at all costs.
  21. What are Rosalie, Carlisle, and Edward whispering about? God, I love the drama.
  22. Edward is straight up gaslighting Bella and I am not OK with it. This is emotional abuse, people!
  23. Bella waking up to Edward standing in her room . . . I once found this romantic, but I now realize it’s creepy as hell.
  24. Edward creepily asking Bella, “What’s in Jacksonville?” when he’s across the parking lot when she’s talking about that? Again, Edward is killing the subtlety game.
  25. And then he immediately gets angry at her when she trips. Can he relax?
  26. I love how they threw in Edward catching the apple to recreate the cover. So meta!
  27. “What if I’m not the superhero here . . . what if I’m . . . the BAD GUY.” The absolute D R A M A.
  28. I totally forgot how Jacob tells Bella the story about the Quileutes in this movie! Neither he nor Bella are aware that the legend is, well, true. “It’s just a story, Bella.” Nope, it’s not!
  29. Uh-oh, someone else is getting attacked by the three mystery figures. Except now we’re finally seeing who they are!
  30. Ugh, Bella getting cornered in an alley by those creeps. Awful.
  31. EDWARD AND HIS VOLVO SAVE THE DAY!
  32. Edward’s driving in this scene is me pulling into the McDonald’s drive-thru at 10:28 a.m. before they had all-day breakfast.
  33. I know that Edward is the hero in this scene, but the man was just casually following Bella around? It’s just as creepy!
  34. I used to swoon over this restaurant scene so much. Bella finally learns that Edward can read minds, but not hers. “Money, sex, money, sex . . . cat.” (The person thinking about cats was actually a personal cameo by me.)
  35. I used to think the pacing of this movie was perfection but now I realize they’ve only had three conversations.
  36. Bella is realizing some shit here.
  37. We’re finally to the forest scene! So good!
  38. “How old are you?” “17.” “How long have you been 17?” “A while.” CHILLS.
  39. “I know what you are: a vampire.” (But imagine if he wasn’t a vampire and now it’s just really awkward.)
  40. As much as I loved this scene, it’s striking me as kind of abusive now? He just grabs her arm and starts dragging her up the hill. Not cool.
  41. YOU BETTER SPARKLE!
  42. Edward talking about how much of a killer he is as he casually rips entire tree limbs off . . . Bella, sweetie, throw the whole man out.
  43. Imagine if Edward and his family weren’t “vegetarians”, though, and they did eat humans? Would Bella still go for him?
  44. I remember reading about how Twilight was inspired by a dream of Stephenie Meyer’s, which was the scene in which Edward and Bella lye together in the flower field. Ugh, so poignant.
  45. At this point the only real reason Edward is so attracted to Bella is because he loves her smell so much. He literally just wants to drink her blood. I feel like there should have been some more development here about them falling in love for like, normal reasons?
  46. “About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him — and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally, and irrevocably in love with him.” Um, really? You’re irrevocably in love with him? Sis, you’ve known him for two seconds. Also, you’re literally 17.
  47. Edward comparing his diet to humans living on tofu and that it’s not fulling satisfying is BS, sorry. Vegetarian and vegan diets are 100 percent sustainable Edward!
  48. Bella meeting Edward’s family for the first time is one of the funniest scenes of the whole movie.
  49. “Is she even Italian?” “Her name’s Bella”. LOL.
  50. Rosalie straight up shatters the glass bowl, so iconic.
  51. There’s constant commentary about how much the vampires all have to literally restrain themselves from killing Bella, and Bella seems chill with it.
  52. It just now dawned on me that since vampires don’t eat or drink anything, they can’t drink alcohol or get drunk. And, obviously, they don’t sleep either. What the hell do they do for fun?
  53. Oh, right. They listen to Debussy.
  54. “You better hold on tight, spider monkey.” What?
  55. When your date monkey-crawls up a 50-foot tree with you slung on their back . . .
  56. Edward busting in through Bella’s window when she’s talking to her mom, and then admitting that he’s been doing it for “the past couple of months.” OK???
  57. Edward can’t fully make out with Bella because he wants to kill her so bad. How did 12-year-old me not realize how bizarre this is?
  58. Also, how does Charlie never hear full-on conversations and shuffling around in the room literally right next to his?
  59. Edward watching Bella sleep when she willingly invites him to do so is 100 percent cuter than when he was creeping in. Glad we’re past that phase.
  60. Seriously, how did I never noticed how beautifully groomed Edward’s eyebrows were?
  61. I know I say this a lot, but the baseball scene is *peak* cinema. The storm. The cinematography. “Supermassive Black Hole” playing in the background. Iconic.
  62. Rosalie hates Bella’s guts so much.
  63. Oof, here come the bad vampires. I love this drama. Also I love how they come onto the field like they’re walking on one of those flat escalator things that are always in airports.
  64. Seriously, they weren’t able to smell Bella until there was a gust of wind? The Cullens could smell Bella from the moment she came into their home.
  65. God, Edward is so freaking aggressive with Bella sometimes. It’s not romantic.
  66. I’ve always really hated the whole fight scene Bella and Edward simulate to give her an excuse to leave. And when she insults poor Charlie so badly so he’ll let her leave . . . #justiceforcharlie
  67. Bella passing by the diner and seeing the normal kids just living life — so thought-provoking.
  68. “Bella, you ARE my life now.” Again, y’all are 17.
  69. I like how James threatens Bella and tells her that if she brings anyone to the ballet studio, he’ll kill her mom. Is going alone REALLY a better idea, Bella? He’s obviously still going to kill you both either way.
  70. Uh-oh, Bella got bamboozled.
  71. Pepper spray on a vampire. Good move, Bella.
  72. The whole movie, Edward is always like, “Vampires are INDESTRUCTIBLE. INVINCIBLE. NOTHING CAN KILL US.” And then they kill James in like, .0005 seconds.
  73. Edward sucking the venom out of Bella’s arm is . . . uncomfortably sexual.
  74. “Death is peaceful, easy. Life is harder.” So deep, Bella.
  75. They just accept that Bella simply fell down some stairs. Are y’all just going to ignore the gaping bite wound in her arm???
  76. Bella wears converse to prom. Ugh, she’s so quirky.
  77. Jacob just casually shows up to Bella’s prom to tell her that his dad wants her to break up with her boyfriend.
  78. Ohhh, Victoria is still alive — and she looks PISSED. The perfect set-up for New Moon.
  79. 🎶 “HOW DID WE GET HERE? I USED TO KNOW YOU SO WELL” 🎶 “Decode” is the song of the decade and that is simply objective.

Therefore I am now encouraging you to watch it again and relive it like you did before.

I only pose one question… Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Real Life Dumb and Dumber MiniBike to Aspen

Dumb & Dumber is one of the most infamous comedies of the last few decades and for good reason. Either idolized or despised by the viewing audience, the classic has stood the test of time and remains one of the most well known and quotes movies to date. Being able to quote the film seamlessly is almost commonplace in society now and days, what’s not however, is attempting the infamous mini bike trip… until now.

RevZilla’s Common Trend members Ari Henning and Zack Courts recreated the 350+ mile journey from Nebraska to Aspen on their very own custom built, scale mini bike replica! The pull-start bike complete with streamers and basket was just the start however, the whole journey wouldn’t have been worth it without bringing along a suitcase! The team researched the most probable rout the dynamic duo could’ve traveled, mapped it out, and headed for the Rockies!

The journey was not without its challenges as one may suspect, the team blowing out two back tires from the pressure of the trip. The small unstable frame of the bike made for a difficult time navigating through high wind speeds and curves while trying to remain stable. More issues the pair encountered can be found in their account of the trip and the process leading up to it here on RevZilla, where they also detail a few encounters with the law.

The guys made the long hull to Aspen, “Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano”, proving the ridiculous completely possible. Dressed head to toe in their best Harry and Lloyd attire, Briefcase in hand, and a “hog” that’ll get 70, or at least close to, miles to the gallon! Let’s just hope they didn’t do it all for a girl named Mary!

You can watch the full video of the trip below courtesy of RevZilla’s Youtube Page as well as get the full breakdown of the trip and all the stops along the way on their webpage!

We just have one more question, was John Denver a load of shit, man?

Cheap Fun

Concerts, vacations, activities can add up quickly, leaving you with an empty bank account. Even if you’re on a budget or saving up for a big expense, you can still have fun this summer for less.

Here are 41 fun, cheap, and free (minus the fuel costs) things you can do while it’s warm outside. There are plenty of ways to have fun without spending a lot.

Free Things to Do in the Summer

Most of these ideas are free, but some may require paying a small fee. Try a few or do them all and have a fun-filled summer for less.

1. Go to the Park

Explore what your city has to offer. Research the best playgrounds in your area. Make a goal to see all the parks in your area and swing on every swing set. You’re never too old to play on a playground just move out of the way of children don’t hog the playground.

2. Swim at Your Community Pool or Spray Park

Slather on the sunscreen and head out to the pool for a few hours. Many parks also have a water playground or splash pad for hours of fun in the sun. This is my favorite kind of summer fun.

3. Visit the Library

This place is awesome. The library can save you money. It is the perfect place to enjoy free air conditioning in the summer months. Many offer free lecture series or cheap classes where you can learn anything from pottery to genealogy.

Some libraries also have kids’ areas with free games and activities. Check out your library’s calendar to see what events are coming up.

4. Play in the Sprinklers

Throw on your bathing suit and run through the sprinklers. You know you want to.

5. Go for a Hike

Scout out a nearby state park for good hiking trails. Ask your friends and family for recommendations on their favorite outdoor hiking spots. Grab a backpack with water, snacks, a compass, and your map, and have fun.

6. Play a Board Game

Enjoy the cool air conditioner and gather around the kitchen table for a fun family board game. Play an old favorite or borrow a new one from friends or family.

7. Learn a New Skill

Learn to play an instrument, knit, etc. Look for free or cheap classes from your local library. You can also check out the free classes they have at Home Depot. They teach everything from building a bird house to laying tile. At the end of the summer, you’ll have “mad skillz.”

8. Take Pictures

Even if you’re not good with a camera, this can be a chance to get better. Get a book from the library on photography and use what you learn to get better with your camera.

Better yet, organize the pictures you already have to make it easier to enjoy them.

9. Make Popsicles

Pour some of that Kool-Aid in the ice trays, or in some small cups (juice works well too!). Add a spoon for a holder and pop them in the freezer. In a few short hours, you can enjoy delicious popsicles.

10. Watch a Movie

You can rent one from the library, watch it on an over-the-air channel, or go to a movie in the park event.

11. Read a Book

They have these things for free at your local library. Curl up next to the air conditioning vent and read to your heart’s content.

Many libraries also offer audiobooks and ebooks in addition to the paper kind. They can be great for reading on the go or listening in the car.

12. Play Online Games

Look up some free games on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. There are plenty of fun, free games. Angry Birds.

13. Visit a Free Zoo or Museum

Find out if there are any free zoos or museums (or at least free days) in your area. Show up and have a blast. Don’t forget to pack food and drinks so you don’t get tempted to buy snacks.

14. Learn to Cook Something New

Try out a new recipe. Summer is a great time to make something new such as gazpacho or Thai curry. Prefer spending time outdoors? Fire up the grill to cook a rare meat (i.e. ostrich burgers).

15. Start a Blog

WordPress.com is free. So is Blogger.com. Starting a blog is a blast. Use your creativity and build a following.

16. Write a Book

Don’t stop with a blog. Write your own book. Have you been putting off writing a novel or a book? Is writing a book something that has been on your bucket list? Self-publishing is easy these days. You could have your book on Amazon in a few days.

17. Play a Sport

Find a free basketball court and organize a game with a few friends. If it’s too hot outside, plan an evening game or look for a basketball court at a church or recreation center.

Basketball not your thing? How about frisbee, volleyball, or tennis? Look for free facilities at local parks or recreation centers. Don’t have a tennis racket or a volleyball? Ask to borrow it from family and friends. Better yet–invite them to join you in the fun!

18. Attend a Free Workout Class

Many gyms, boot camps, etc.; will let you try their facility or program at least once for free to see if you like it. This may be the perfect time to take a pilates class or try out CrossFit.

19. Blow Bubbles

Make some bubbles using dishwashing soap, water, and sugar (for consistency.) NO ONE IS TOO OLD FOR BUBBLES!

20. Have a Garage Sale

Have fun (and make money) getting rid of all of your unwanted stuff. Your house will feel so much cleaner and better organized after all the excess items are out of it. A successful garage sale helps you meet your neighbors too.

21. Start a Garden

Find some scrap lumber to make a square foot garden in your back yard. Seeds are cheap.

Check the library for books and other information about gardening. Some libraries also offer classes on gardening and may even have a seed library where you can get seeds for free.

22. Watch the Sunrise

Get up early. Find a good spot. Look east. There is nothing quite like watching the sun rise and basking in the cool morning air.

23. Go to the Beach

Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen, and snacks and have a fun, frugal outing. Bring a towel and take a dip.

24. Ride Your Bike

You can find some great trails through your state and local park services and even in your own neighborhood. Have fun and always wear a helmet.

25. Build a Fort

Pillow and blanket forts are awesome. Or go big with a fort made of scraps of lumber.

26. Write with Sidewalk Chalk

Unleash your inner artists and show the neighbors what you got. You can even use the chalk to draw a game such as hopscotch for hours of entertainment.

After it rains, do it again.

27. Start a Collection

Summer is the perfect time to start a collection of stamps, coins, rocks, or other freebies.

28. Have a Picnic

Instead of eating lunch at your kitchen table for the umpteenth time, break out the pic-a-nic basket and blanket. Get some sun while you eat.

29. Go to a Festival or County Fair

Check out your community calendar and find free events in your area. 

30. Volunteer

Find a local person or organization in need (it could be your older neighbor). Offer to help for an afternoon.

If you’re good in a sport, offer to coach a kids’ team. Many kids’ sports organizations rely on free coaching help from volunteers.

31. Go Fishing

Find an ocean, lake, river, pond, or puddle, and start fishing. Make sure fishing is allowed at that location. Borrow equipment or spend a little money to rent it from the bait shop.

32. Have a Parade (or at Least See One)

Find a Memorial Day, Independence Day, or any other day parade to attend. Many homeowners’ associations (HOA) also put together free parades for the neighborhood.

Or, start one yourself and lead the way.

33. See the Sights

There could be many things your town or state are well known for go see them.

34. Watch a Baseball Game

There are many minor league baseball teams all across the country.

Even if your town doesn’t have one affiliated with a major league baseball (MLB) franchise, there is often an independent league team in many small towns with guys who are still dreaming of earning a shot at an MLB team.

A day at the ballpark can be a great and cheap family event.

35. Spend Time with Your family

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it is worth mentioning again. Summer is the perfect time to reconnect with your family and make memories together.

36. Have a Cookout

Nothing screams summer like a cookout. It’s a fun way to hang out with friends and family, and enjoy the warm weather.

37. Go to an Outdoor Concert

During the summer, many parks offer free outdoor concert series. Grab a picnic blanket and some snacks and relax on the grass while enjoying live music.

38. Go See a Play

Many small communities still have a theater, playhouse, or an opera house where you can see local productions of plays and musicals. Seeing a locally produced play can be a thrilling experience, and many have discount nights.

39. Go Camping

If you already have camping gear, head for the great outdoors for a cheap and fun-filled way to enjoy summer.

Don’t want to drive anywhere or pay the campsite fees? Camp in your back yard. Pitch a tent, light a fire, and roast some marshmallows under the stars. If you have kids, they will love this idea!

40. Look at the Stars

There is nothing quite like enjoying the starry sky on a clear summer night. If you live in the city, it may be difficult to see the stars because of light pollution.

Hop in the car and drive away from the city. Find a spot near an open field and look up at the night sky. Try to identify different constellations or individual stars. Big Dipper anyone?

41. People Watch

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and head to a park or the downtown area of your city. Find a good spot and watch the world go by. It’s a great way to disconnect and enjoy the sights and sounds around you. Create a hypothetical life behind a stranger see where your creativity brings you.

Grey’s Anatomy secrets

If you read my last blog you know this is the second blog of a list of Grey’s Anatomy secrets that many people don’t know.

SERIES CREATOR SHONDA RHIMES GOT THE IDEA FOR GREY’S ANATOMY AFTER A DOCTOR TOLD HER HOW HARD IT IS TO SHAVE HER LEGS IN THE HOSPITAL SHOWER.

Rhimes told Oprah that although she had always loved shows about surgery and emergency rooms, the unique angle for her show was sparked after a doctor mentioned how hard it was to shave her legs in the tiny hospital shower. “At first that seemed like a silly detail,” Rhimes said. “But then I thought about the fact that it was the only time and place this woman might have to shave her legs. That’s how hard the work is.”null

THE SHOW IS NAMED AFTER A FAMOUS MEDICAL TEXTBOOK.

Grey’s Anatomy refers to the series’ main character, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), of course. But the character and show name were chosen as a nod to the medical textbook Gray’s Anatomy, penned by English anatomist Henry Gray and first published in 1858. The book is considered the seminal work on the human body and is in its 41st edition today—with a few updates from the first edition, of course.

GREY’S ANATOMY WASN’T THE ONLY TITLE CONSIDERED.

Kate Walsh, who played Addison Montgomery for three seasons in Grey’s Anatomy‘s early years, once revealed that other possible titles for the series included Doctors, Surgeons, and Complications.null

SHONDA RHIMES HAD VERY SPECIFIC IDEAS OF WHAT HER CHARACTERS WERE LIKE—RIGHT DOWN TO WHAT WOULD BE IN THEIR HOSPITAL LOCKERS.

Part of the main actors’ character descriptions included the contents of their lockers. Meredith: Stacks of old birthday cards that she never got around to mailing and three alarm clocks to prevent her from oversleeping. George O’Malley: Medical journals and old textbooks. Cristina Yang’s include “a Palm Pilot featured with the latest research articles … high heels to go out in after work, condoms because you never know.”

EVERY EPISODE OF GREY’S ANATOMY IS NAMED AFTER A SONG—EXCEPT ONE.

Since the very first episode, “A Hard Days’ Night,” named after the Beatles song, every episode has shared a name with a song title, including everything from Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” to Elmo & Patsy’s “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” The one exception, so far, was a season 14 episode titled “1-800-799-7233”—the real-life hotline to report domestic violence, which was the premise of the episode.

Songs that SHOULD Have been Wrestler’s Themes

If you’re more than the average fan, chances are you can go word for word or note for note with any litany of wrestler themes across a multitude of eras. The entrance theme is a vital part of any wrestlers persona and plays a major role in how they are received by the live audience. A great entrance theme can put a rising star on the average fans radar or propel an already established star to an unthinkable level, case in point, Chris Jericho’s Judas. However, many times wrestlers who aren’t particularly pinned by management for the main event scene are often saddled with any number of boring or reused stick music from the WWE library. While other companies such as AEW have shelled out some major bucks for song rights in the past year, we completely understand the sizable reason why this luxury cannot be afforded to everyone. That being said, some theme choices just seem too obvious to pass up!

Lunatic Fringe: Dean Ambrose

Now listen, Tony Khan’s recent Acquisition of Wild Thing for Moxley is a spot on fit, we’re not debating that. However, The WWE’s Dean Ambrose was a very different character entirely. Taking much of the hardcore and ruthless style Moxley was known for and toning it down, WWE startled the then Dean Ambrose with the monicker, Lunatic Fringe. Had this maybe just been “The Lunatic” maybe it would’ve had more legs, but I can honestly say I’ve never once heard the phrase “lunatic fringe” used outside of the 1981 Red Rider song of the same name. This was no one and done nickname either, it stuck with him his entire WWE career! You’d think at some point this would’ve been adapted to his entrance theme, maybe when he broke out from The Shield as a singles star, maybe after he won his first WWE Championship, or one of his big returns to the ring, but no. The opportunity was always there several times over, it would seem more than anything “The Fed” just didn’t want to spend the extra green on The Dean. This theme may have been the catalyst that took the Ambrose persona to a more serious and ruthless level, alas all we ever got were some awkwardly places sirens over the same old tune.

Be A Man: Randy Savage

Getting a little more specific on this one, Pomp and Circumstance is 100% the definitive Macho Man theme. The only song that could’ve possibly played the cream of the crop to the ring for all those glorious years, but we’re not talking WWF here, hell we aren’t even taking WCW. In a very unexpected turn of events The Macho King found himself signed to a TNA contract in 2004 just in time for his big debut at their Turning Point PPV. This wasn’t the robe wearing, colorful, catchphrase spouting Savage of old though. More reminiscent of his latter-day WCW gimmick, Savage was back in black, head-to-toe leather with a more serious demeanor than ever. This would’ve been the perfect time for Randy’s rap album Be A Man to be brought to the live wrestling audience. With the self titled track playing him too the ring, this much more grizzled and rough are kind the edges Savage would’ve been backed by his own fitting signature gravely voice, rather than some weird dance club inspired version of his classic theme.

Ziggy Stardust: Stardust

His name was Stardust. Stardust, how do you drop the ball on this. Presumably, the copyright for David Bowie must’ve been immaculate, however, if they planned to keep Cody in that silly little trash bag suit, which clearly they did, why not invest in it. There is a long standing theory in the wrestling world that Mr. McMahon has always forced the Rhodes family into ridiculous gimmicks and costumes in order to get back at Dusty and the NWA for opposing his product, be it yellow polka dots, the “Androgynous” Goldust, or … this thing, and we can’t help but believe that to be at least partially true. I mean for God sake, he even painted his face like Bowie upon the singers passing. Just imagine how much more of a presence, and less of a joke, this could’ve been with Cody walking to the ring as the Ziggy Stardust guitar riff blared behind him, you know the one.

Break On Through: John Morrison

This one legitimately bothers me to this day. The whole basis of the John Morrison gimmick is that he bares a striking resemblance to Doors front man Jim Morrison. Literally, look at his early presentation on WWECW, his attires, manner of speech, what he references, HIS DAMN FINISHING MOVE IS THE STARSHIP PAIN. He is a walking tribute to The Doors. So if someone could please explain to me what in the hell his entrance theme is suppose to sound like, because it damn sure ain’t Jim. The only thing I keep telling myself is that someone pitched the gimmick to the audio department and had to try and explain what The Doors sounded like without ever listening to them. “Yeah man, so it’s like, psychedelic 70s rock with heavy guitar influence then add some guy who sounds drugged out over it”. That’s the only logical explanation I have, and that’s no disrespect to Jim Johnston because he was a phenomenal asset to the company, by damn what the hell happened here. It doesn’t even have to be Break On Through, it could literally be ANY Doors song, Hell it could be a knock off instrumental cover of a Doors song. Something that makes sense is all I ask for, is that too much? Well, I’m WWE yes, yes it is.

Bonus Track

Things you didn’t know about Grey’s Anatomy

There have been so many seasons that it’s crazy how many things that nobody knows.

Bokhee is a real life scrub nurse.

She may not say much, but she’s been a staple background character of the show for years.

And according to a 2013 tweet from Sandra Oh, who played Cristina Yang, Bokhee really knows what she’s doing.

“The nurse in that scene, Bokhee, is a real surgical nurse,” Oh wrote. “She’s been with us since the beginning. She’s like my 2nd mom, she’s the best.”

The medical Jargan is all correct.

According to McKenna Princing, who wrote about being a medical advisor on the show for UW Medicine in 2017, the series employs real doctors to make sure the writers are getting some procedures and jargon right.

But until the advisors filled in the jargon, the writers just put “medical medical” as placeholder text in the script, according to show creator Shonda Rhimes’ book “Year of Yes.”

Rhimes wrote, “Meredith will say, ‘I need a medical medical to medical!’ And someone else will go, ‘Well I have medical medical.’ ‘Well hand me the medical!”

She also revealed that on the show “Scandal,” it’s “political political.”

Only three members remain from the original season.

After over 300 episodes, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) are the only original leads who are still on the series.  

Derek and Mer had a real wedding registry.

People reported in 2009 that the fictional couple had a real wedding registry on The Knot.

It encouraged fans to donate to research organizations that Derek and Meredith would have approved of, like the American Academy of Neurology Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

there are many more things that fans had no idea about stick around for next weeks list…

Grey’s Anatomy Scrub Colors?

Scrubs are the short sleeved shirts and pants or gowns worn by nurses, surgeons, and any other operating room personnel when “scrubbing in” for surgery, worn under sterile surgical gowns.

The wearing of scrubs has been extended outside of surgery in many hospitals. Scrubs are now worn by any hospital personnel in any clean environment, for cleanliness and hygiene issues, and are worn under lab coats.

Grey’s Anatomy

All staff at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a standardized set of scrubs that is usually worn by the staff, if some form of formal wear is not worn. Different colors in scrubs indicate which department and/or rank they are:

  • Surgical attendings/fellows wear navy scrubs
  • Surgical interns and residents wear light blue scrubs
  • ER residents wear brown scrubs
  • Psychiatry residents wear beige scrubs
  • Nursing staff generally wear green scrubs
  • Scrub nurses generally wear the same light blue scrubs as surgical interns and residents
  • Dermatology residents wear peach scrubs
  • Diagnostic staff (e.g., pathologists, radiologists, techs, etc.) wear gray scrubs
  • OB/GYN attendings and residents wear purple or light pink scrubs
  • Oncology residents and nurses in the oncology outpatient clinic wear red scrubs
  • Infectious disease staff wear yellow scrubs
  • Clinic staff wear turquoise scrubs

The standard scrub caps are light blue fabric scrub caps as worn by residents, and attendings have navy blue scrub caps although some have personalized scrub caps. Paper/plastic scrub caps are available as well, including hair nets available to non-medical personnel in the OR (more frequently the case in caesarean sections where the partner is present).

Private Practice

All staff at St. Ambrose have scrubs, and all medical staff on the show have been shown to wear purple scrubs, and the nursing staff appears to wear blue scrubs.

The female staff at Oceanside Wellness Group also have their own pink/purple scrubs, which are worn by both doctors and nurses. Dell has blue scrubs (similar to that of St. Ambrose nursing staff) as part of his conditions of working at the center and Pete has his own set of black scrubs. Most staff have their own personalized scrub caps.

Notes and Trivia

  • Visitors to Seattle Grace Hospital who perform surgeries or are present in the O.R. wear attending scrubs. However, Colin Marlow wore black scrubs, and Erica Hahn wore red scrubs when she was still employed by Seattle Presbyterian Hospital.
  • Personalized scrub caps can be enlarged and shaped to be more of a hair net to accommodate extra hair, as in the case of Margaret Campbell.
  • Mark Sloan was the only main character attending without a personalized scrub cap. This was later modeled by his protégé, Jackson Avery, who is the only other main character to have completed residency as of season nine not to have a personalized scrub cap.
  • In A Hard Day’s Night, Bailey wore a personalized scrub cap, but in every subsequent surgery until she finished her residency, she wore the plain light blue caps.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, although surgical attendings wear navy scrubs, OB/GYN attendings still wear pink scrubs.
    • Addison, though she was the OB/GYN head, most likely wore navy scrubs because she’s also the neonatal head, practicing neonatal surgeries.
    • Perinatologists and maternal-fetal medicine fellows do not wear pink scrubs, as they practice fetal surgeries and wear navy scrubs.
    • Some OB/GYN attendings opt to wear navy scrubs.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, no attending anesthesiologists have been shown to wear personalized scrub caps
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, Some hospitals use other colors for scrubs
    • Seattle Presbyterian Hospital uses red scrubs
    • Mercy West Medical Center used orange or gray scrubs
    • Mayo Clinic and Tufts Medical Center use dark green scrubs.
    • Dillard Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, and Bauer Army Medical Center used blue-green scrubs.
    • Columbia University Medical Center used turquoise scrubs.

Popular Songs with Lyrical Mistakes

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Notably one of the most notoriously famous songs for it’s interesting title and lyrics, Iron Butterfly’s In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was the product of a night of over-indulgence. Originally intended to be titled “In The Garden of Eden”, the story goes, Vocalist Doug Ingle wrote the title on the demo copy as we see it appear now while heavily under the influence. Ironically enough, the record company tasked with producing the 17 plus minute track decided to keep the name as it sounded, “Exotic” according to SongFacts, which would help them stand out to the public alongside The Beatles and Rolling Stones who had been drawing from Indian influence.

Uneasy Rider

There’s no doubt in our minds Charlie Daniels is a hell of a musician and one of, if not the best, to ever pick up the fiddle! Now as far as a mathematician goes, maybe not so much. Let’s break down the set up to the Uneasy Rider fight scene for a second, “Jes’ when I thought I’d get outta there with my skin
These five big dude come strollin’ in
With this one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth” so okay not five but… Six guys right? But hey, the benefit of the doubt, maybe one of those five just deserved some more explanation due to the natural color of his teeth. Now let’s fast-forward a few verses, “Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight
In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night
‘Specially when there were three of them and only one of me”, so now it’s three guys? Charlie, buddy, I don’t want to call you a liar here but your epic tale of how you escaped hillbilly hell maybe a bit of a stretch, seeing as there are so many inconsistencies. Then again, math was definitely my worst subject.

Wish You Were Here

While not exactly an unintended “lyric” this iconic piece of Pink Floyd history definitely deserves to make the list. If you’ve ever sat down and listened to the popular, Wish you were here, you may have noticed a pretty audible cough around the :44 marker. You’re not alone and you’re not crazy, the cough was left in the final track much to the disdain of the one responsible for it, front man David Gilmour. Allegedly, according to SonicScoop.com, this is what prompted Gilmour to give up smoking.

Hey Jude

Prepare your ears for this one! Near the 2:55 mark of The Beatles famous Hey Jude, should you listen closely you can audibly hear one Sir Paul McCartney, uttering “fucking hell” upon messing up a chord. Now while this clearly was unintentional, the decision to keep it in was not! The story goes that Lennon and the others found it so funny and being it was rather quiet under the music, just to leave it in the final cut. So, next time your local oldies station decides to spin the acclaimed track, keep your ears open to see if the station heads have caught on, or if you need to have a talk with the FCC.

Polly

Never the prototypical musician, Kurt Cobain was well documented for his unique approach to his music. From his throat-centric singing to his self-taught guitar techniques, Kurt could turn what some would call being “untrained” into pure gold. During the recording of Nirvana’s Polly, Cobain is audibly off on his timing coming into the third verse of the song resulting in him getting in a quick “Polly Said” before catching himself. While thia can easily be mistaken as a quick refrain before the final verse, it was completely unintentional. However, after recording fellow bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic allegedly liked how this little slip-up sounded so much they kept it in the final cut! Unintentional? Could’ve fooled us!
