LOEB - Top 10

http://coolandcollected.com/this-weeks-assignment-from-the-league-top-10/
This week the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is tasked with creating a top 10 list. The topic is wide open so I decided it would be fun to share my Top 10 favorite knick knacks/decorations in my man cave/collection room/Nerd Nook (as it's come to be called).

Day 28 - 80s Marathon Cont.

I've been covering quite a bit of ground on Netflix streaming this summer. It's kind of fun to just go through the movies and pick random titles. I like to think I've got a pretty comprehensive movie background. I've been a huge movie fan for decades and have seen most of the must see titles. While scrolling through I came across one movie I haven't seen, "The Witness".

Days 26-27 - 80s flicks, Outback and a Holy Grail!

So I finally watched an 80s favorite of mine "Lucas". If you haven't seen this it is definitely worth watching. I'm always impressed with Corey Haim's performance in this movie. He really nails it and conveys the emotions a kid in Lucas' position would be feeling. I don't want to spoil it so if you haven't seen it, WATCH IT!

Days 23-25 - The Shore

The wife and I made the drive to Rehoboth beach to visit my in-laws. I was pretty excited to finally be hitting up the beach and walking on the board walk. As a kid I spent loads of time in the summer down the shore. It's always a nice jolt of nostalgia to hear arcade sounds, eat ice cream and check out the amusement park.

Day 22 - Life Itself

Today was a fairly lazy day. I cleaned up the man cave and watched Roger Ebert's documentary "Life Itself". It was pretty hot and I've had very few lazy days so I embraced the hell out of it!

Days 20/21 - Trains, Frogs, and Country Drives

So I got out of the city a bit these past few days. Nothing super exciting. I'll let the photos do the talking...
I was reminded of a U2 favorite -  "In God's Country"
