1. Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.

What else could I possibly have first on the list? This drink is considered to be the “best drink in existence” by the Guide with effects that feel like having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick. I don’t know about you, but I certainly have days where I could use that exact feeling.

2. Buzz Beer. 

The Drew Carey Show has a special home in the nostalgic parts of my heart. Buzz Beer was a alcoholic beverage consisting of beer and coffee that Drew and his friends brewed right out of his garage. I always thought it would be something interesting to try in real life.

3. Sploosh.

Growing up my mom used to read me Louis Sachars books, such as Sideways Stories from Wayside School. Holes was the first one I read myself. In Holes, Zero hides out with nothing to sustain but jars of fermented peaches. Not knowing what he was eating he named the drinkable concoction “Sploosh”. This plays a humorous key role in the end of the story.

4. “Drink Me”.

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Disney. Alice in Wonderland is no exception. Before Alice can go through the door to wonderland she has to eat and drink her way to the appropriate size. This scene is so memorable!

5. Butterbeer.

This list wouldn’t be complete without Butterbeer. As fun as it was to read about in the Harry Potter books. This drink has become universally known (Pun Intended). People look forward to trying it in the real world now as well!

Honorable Mention: Lefou’s Brew.

Although not as well known, Lefou’s Brew is another drink you can try in the real world. If you ever go to Disney World be sure to stop by Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland to give it a try. I can’t wait to try it when I go to Disney next year!

I’m back, Jack!

Hey everyone, I’m ready to start blogging regularly again. For the time being I’m going to post something every Wednesday along with my Stream It Sunday posts and either Five Fandom, and/or Funko Fridays. With college classes, my upcoming Disney trip, and my blog back in full swing – 2017 is shaping up to be a great year.

1.  New York Comic Con. I put this one first on the list because as soon as tickets are available I am planning on purchasing a couple and attending NYCC this year! It will be my first MAJOR con and I couldn’t be more excited. I can’t believe I’ve never attended before seeing as the venue is only about a six hour drive from my house.  Continue reading 5 Fandom Friday: Conventions I Wish To Attend

Dean loves pie which means that he loves Thanksgiving by default. I imagine that after a stressful day of hunting he’d eat a large meal with massive amounts of dessert. He can bring Sam along if he’d like.

The topic of this weeks 5 Fandom Friday is favorite fictional aliens. Admittedly, I wasn’t very excited about this topic to begin with but after thinking about it I realized just how many aliens are in my favorite shows. I guess after you fall in love with a character you forget they are not human. I found it difficult to narrow down my list and had to leave out aliens like Gizmo, ALF, Groot, Gir and Zim.

1. Spock from Star Trek.
No list of extraterrestrials would be complete without Spock. His expertise and level-headedness is invaluable to the enterprise. (RIP Mr. Nimoy)

Poll Results! What are you a fan of?

Last week in lieu of Five Fandom Friday I set up a poll about what shows/entertainment is most popular and what everyone is a fan of. Today, the results are in!

Untitled

Write-In’s for “Other” include GOT/ASOIAF, Anime, Hannibal, X-Files, Twilight Zone, Avatar, Breaking Bad, OITNB, Westerns, My Little Pony, Scooby Doo, Orphan Black, and Firefly.

What do you think of the results?

I am surprised by how few Star Trek fans voted and excited about how many votes Harry Potter got!

See you tomorrow for another Five Fandom Friday!
