The Best Things Come to Those Who Wait, Especially Joey

When Friends premiered in 1994 (which is now so long ago it qualifies as retro), the cast became a media phenomenon and much was made of the fact they were all unknowns. But that’s only if you didn’t like obscure or throwaway pop culture. I actually recognized Matt Le Blanc from one of the greatest commercials of all time, for Heinz Ketchup, in which he put a bottle of ketchup on the roof of a building and caught it on his hot dog from the ground.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
