Every culture has so many attributes in common. One of them is drinking. We, as nerd historians, felt obligated to share a brief, but insight look into the history of alcohol.

Those who know me (and some who don’t) know that the Academy Awards is the one annual ritual in which I hold the same level of esteem as religious events like Easter, Christmas, and watching a Batman or Superman movie. Ever since I was a kid, the Oscars were an event that I simply couldn’t “take or leave.” Would you “take or leave” your grandmother? Favorite uncle? First born child?
On our January 11th blog post, I posed a challenge to our readers and listeners to see 18 of the Oscar nominated films (check out the post to see the details and prizes!).
It seems this year, the Challenge has proven to be rather daunting. I myself have a mere 7 films to go prior to the big day. I was ahead of my pace, and then I skipped a week. So now I need to see 3 films this week to catch up. Thankfully, I will have plenty of time to sit and relax and watch movies because as you are reading this, I am having my wisdom teeth extracted.
