Thank God for Seinfeld! Seriously, not only is it my favorite TV series of all time, it's also the greatest show to exit since the dawn of civilization. Facts!
Oh boy, Hong Kong—have you been? It’s been one of my favorite travel destinations ever since I packed my bags, moved to China to work as an ESL teacher, and began my trek across East Asia.

I remember like it was yesterday, whether racing home after school to catch its evening time slot on Cartoon Network or drawing all of my favorite characters, including Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Trunks, and Brolly, in a scrapbook.
There's nothing like kicking back, scarfing down some butter popcorn, and watching a great movie. Know what I mean? Me? I've loved watching movies since as I was ye' high. My dad always had access to popular films on VHS, and the local Magic Johnson Theater down the street from my house was where I'd catch all the major releases.
