top 9 TV theme songs from the 90’s

Home Improvement
I’m not so sure, Tim.

#9 (’91-’99) Home Improvement: I loved the construction equipment noises and the “Hhhhuuuuh?????”

————————-

Step By Step
Brady Bunch 2.0

#8 (’91-’98) Step-By-Step: The build up whilst climbing the roller-coaster always got to me.

————————-

Seinfeld
Hello, Jerry.

#7 (’89-’98) Seinfeld: Not really a theme song but gotta love the distinctive bass-synthesizer picking in between scenes.

————————-

Saved By the Bell sitcom
It’s all right!

#6 (’89-’93) Saved By The Bell: If only a high school could have been this much fun, maybe I would have gone.

Animaniacs Logo
They have pay-for-play contracts.

#5 (’93-’98)  Animaniacs: They’re known for their epic educational songs. Check em out on YouTube sometime.

Breaking Bad
Heisenberg.

#4 (’08-’13) Breaking Bad… wait just a minute… that’s not in the 90’s! Oops sorry! 😉

————————-

Full House
Everywhere you look….

#4 (’87-’95) Full House: I loved these guys. Interesting to see where they’ve all headed from here. On one hand the Olsen Twins, on the other Candace Cameron. Couldn’t be more different!

————————-

Duck Tales
You might solve a mystery, or re-write history!

#3 (’87-’90) Duck Tales: Barely making it into the 90’s, Scrooge and the ducklings have to make it on this list. The way Scrooge dives into his money-bin for a swim will always amaze me.

Baywatch Cast
Baywatch… don’t worry, I’ll be there for you.

#2 (’89-’01) Baywatch: Oh how I’ve missed you. We all learned so much about swimming, life-saving techniques and running on the beach.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
It all happened when a couple of guys…

#1 (’90-’96) The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: Thank you. I really used to think I could actually rap. And I could never figure out why everyone laughed at Carlton’s dancing…

The 25 things you should do before you…..

The heck I should!

You’ve seen those lists before too, right?

“100 things to do before you die, 25 exercises you should try today, the top-50 places to visit on your next long weekend, etc etc…”

Now, they can be motivating can’t they? If you’re at all like me you see those lists and your think “hot dang, I’m gonna do that NEXT year! Yeah, that’s going to be great!” Shiny objects or not, I’m.All.Over.That. Next year. (haha)

You know what I dislike most about those lists? I’ll tell you, it is that they are so appealing. I know I can’t hit the whole list any time soon, but I just can’t take a look and not google/wiki/map/research all of them anywaysss. You think DOING all of those things takes time? Try researching them. THAT takes time.

With all these things that seem to be demands on our time, we need to realize:

1) they are not demands, only suggestions – really nice suggestions – so don’t feel negative pressure.

2) they are someone else’s ideas – not yours – so keep in mind they may be wrong.

3) there are actually a million and one things to do – no such thing as a top-10, 50, or 100 – so feel free to write your own list.

Here are a few interesting list in the meantime:

  1. Top 10 things to do in 2012 (They say it’s ever too late lol)
  2. 22 Unbelievable places (Have to admit this is more than pretty cool)
  3. 35 Books you must read (Happy to report I’ve read 12 of them)
  4. Top Crossfit workout (I believe my score last year was 421)

List of Firsts

List of the first time you accomplish something each year
Start keeping a list… telling anyone the plans in advance is optional 🙂

I was speaking with a good friend of mine today. He’s a motivated guy… but kind of a “sleeper” who you might not know to be a go-getter. He’s a go-getter indeed, but under the radar. He’s done some pretty extraordinary things but doesn’t talk to much about “motivational mumbo-jumbo” and that like. He just does his thing. 

He shared something simple with me that I’m going to implement for 2013: start keeping a “firsts” for each year. Just write down the things that year that you did for the first time ever.  It got me thinking about 2012 and if there were any notable “firsts” in my life… there were, but not quite enough for my liking. 

If I’m really the go-getter that I picture myself to be, I need to get a few more firsts jotted down. What are your next firsts going to be??
