A Guy's Guide on how to Help Prevent Sexual Harassment

A Guy's Guide on how to Help Prevent Sexual Harassment
After reading  so many articles about creeps like Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Louis CK, John Conyers, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, and Donald Trump (among others, and probably several more to come) giving men a bad name I  got frustrated with my gender. The apparently ceaseless trickle of new celebrity creeps being named every week is frustrating and disheartening... Read more »

6 Other Events Stephen Miller Should Crash to Prove His Testosterone-Laden Superiority

6 Other Events Stephen Miller Should Crash to Prove His Testosterone-Laden Superiority
Today The New York Times’s Matt Flegenheimer posted a lengthy bio on Donald Trump’s favorite Eunuch Vampire, impersonator, Stephen Miller. In the well-researched piece, one anecdote seemed to get the bulk of social media buzz, where it was noted about, then high schooler, Miller, “He jumped, uninvited, into the final stretch of a girls’ track...

Awarding Excellence in Andydom: The Andy Awards

Awarding Excellence in Andydom: The Andy Awards
I thought it was time to honor some famous Andys with the Andy Awards. At first it may seem like these are awards were arbitrarily made up and awarded to every famous I could think of, and that is exactly correct. So here are the 11 Best Andys I could think of.

Top 6 Randys of TV and Cinema

<strong>#6 Randy "The Macho Man" Savage</strong><br><br> Not only is he a randy savage, but he is also a macho man on top of that. <br><br>Mr. Savage was a household name in the early 90's and It's fair to say that every male between the ages of 25 and 36 has imitated the Macho Man in one way or another- possibly with a flying elbow, an "Oooh Oooh yee--uh", a "Snap into a Slim Jim!" or pointing to your cheek where you want the Lovely Elizabeth to kiss you. In a world filled with randy savages, he was truly a macho man.
While Randy is a pretty common name here in the States it is rarely used for TV and movie characters. It’s possible that producers avoid the name for fear it will alienate British audiences since Randy means something like “amorous” or “frisky” over there, or maybe they avoid naming anyone else Randy because they know...

Top 4 Vins in America

<strong>#4 Vin Diesel</strong><br><br> Even though his real name is Mark Sinclair, I still felt he earned a spot on this list.  It may also be worth noting that every Vin I could think of made this list.
How many Vins can you name? Not a Vince, Vincent or Vint, but Vin. I was able to come up with only four, so I ranked them.

Things Your Annoying Friends can do or Appreciate on a Deeper Level Than You

<strong>Sports</strong><br><br> Like most men, I enjoy talking about sports. But everyone has that one (or more) friend who speaks with a ridiculous amount of authority on the topic. Among their go-to moves:
- When you complain about your team's poor performance, they correct you about what their problem REALLY is. <br><br>
- When a problem is identified they assert they've been saying that for a while, and imply that they clearly see things the coach doesn't and they would make a better coach. <br><br>
-Argue vigorously in un-proveable hypotheticals, usually with a historical backdrop.  Would Sandy Koufax's fastball be effective in this era? Would Wilt Chamberlain be as dominant in today's NBA? Would the Steeler's Steel Curtain defense contain Joe Montana's offense in it's heyday? Only your friend can say for sure, and it's certainly worth debating because we may one day find out once and for all. <br><br> Ok, no it's not worth debating because it's impossible to ever ascertain the answer.
Some topics bring out the most annoying traits in people. For instance, if you were on an airplane and could select which topic NOT to discuss with the stranger sitting next to you and your choices were: Monkeys, sandwiches, politics, or movies; I bet most people would opt to omit politics from the discussion.

How to fail at music festivals (10 Things I Hate about You)
Cool recommended lists of expensive and generally poser outfits, internet.  Also, for teaching youngs how to act.  Thanks for the super advanced list of buzzwords to know when you’re standing at Kaskade pretending to know the words, realizing you don’t, and awkwardly just waiting for the drop with the basshead next to you… now you can say...

10 Best Baseball Seasons by a Player With a Jheri Curl

But before we get to the list, I had to present the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Medium of the Jheri Curl to Pascual Perez. The man has earned it. Thanks for you all you did, Pascual. <br><br> Ok, now on to the list.
Jheri! Jheri! Jheri! The rule for inclusion on this list is pretty easy: The player must have had a Jheri curl for most of that season as far as I could tell. To make this list a player needed to be in both his baseball prime and his plumage prime from about 1986-1989, when baseball... Read more »

11 Creepiest Celebrity Dudes

11. Wilmer Valderrama <br><br> The celebrity gossip site, is famous for it's Celebrity Blind Items. Every so often the blogger will reveal the identities of the people in the blind items. In my years reading that site I've discovered a lot of creeps, but two creepers tower over all the rest in their creepitude.

If you like scandalous celebrity gossip, I guarantee this link will entertain you for at least two hours.
Political philosophers love to pose the question, “Who watches the watchers?” Frankly, That’s a really good question and I have no idea. But what I do know is that we at Lists That Actually Matter do the exact opposite. We creep the creepers.

Happy Anniversary, Kup League Champion ChicagoNow Dirt Angels

Curtis is good enough to lead off for the Kup winning team, and he's good enough to lead off my list with his Jordan-after-his-first-title pose. <br><br>

Game 1 vs. Chicago Reader <br><br>

My lead off song is I'm Going In by Lil Wayne and Drake. After starting off well at the plate and fielding a not bad shortstop, I liked my performance so far and my team's  chances and felt confident we were going in. <br>

It was a exactly a week ago that we won the Kup, so I decided to chronicle our playoff run in song like I did when ChicagoNow won the 2012 AAJA Trivia Bowl. I feel like a rapper starting a mixtape with “this aint a diss track”.  For the record: this article is just for... Read more »
