Top Ten Scottish TV Ads

Top Ten 80s Watches

Top Ten 80s Watches

This post is in response to the Pop Culture League’s Challenge on Listicular Fortitude. I’m a big fan of watches of all kinds. I’m still stunned that people can make those tiny intricate mechanisms in analogue watches now, let alone over 100 years ago. But…

Top Ten Cartoon Theme Tunes

Top Ten Cartoon Theme Tunes

Another difficult list here. If you ask me next week I might change the order of this list. And if I was focussing on best intro sequences I might order it a bit differently too. But for this one I was focussing on the music…

Top Ten 80s Actors

Top Ten 80s Actors

This Top Ten list was incredibly hard. So many great actors from so many great movies to choose from. I’ve tried to keep it to the 80s although to be honest some of the movies mentioned are from 1 or 2 years either side. Basically…
