Live without regret! Come to closing night!

Do you have any life regrets? Do you have more than one? If so this means you might be doing something wrong with your life.

Too many people put off something that brings them joy, or fail to see the opportunity to experience joy. They use reasoning like: they haven’t thought about it, don’t have it on their schedule, didn’t know it was coming or they decided to be a putz and stay home to watch Quantum Leap reruns.

Somebody once said “Each regret you die with ends up eating your soul”. I believe that was me. Pretty good, huh? So don’t end up 6 feet under in the “bye bye box” with these regrets chompin’ on your soul.

1. Finding out your spouse is a distant cousin.
2. Stepping on the crack that broke your mother’s back.
3. You never did get those magic posters that you stare at to work.
4. Wasted life savings on Hillary Nutcracker business.
5. Didn’t try hard enough to be pretty.
6. Realized far too late that everyone can tell you’re wearing a toupee.
7. The “Nick & Jessica” tattoo on the small of your back.
8. Discovering that cats don’t always land on their feet.
9. Reading this lame regret list.
10. Failure to see the closing night of the highly reviewed Hot Beans in Love, playing Wednesday, April 30th @ 8pm. (more details that will save your soul from being eaten alive)

Mustache Hall of Fame

Benji Nelson MustacheThe dictionary defines mustache as ” The hair growing on the human upper lip, especially when cultivated and groomed”. But it is so much more than that. It represents power, manliness, fashion and an attitude that screams “Look at this thing on my face!”

As you can see I, Benji Nelson, have been sporting a class A mustache (or moustache as the French would say) for a while now. But the question is why do I choose to grow this pushbroom, soupstrainer, cookieduster, nose neighbor, flavor saver or mouth brow as they call it? The simple answer is that I examined that greatest men on earth, and do you know what they had in common? Yes, that’s right, the famed mustache.

So I would now like to introduce you to my heroes. My Mustache Hall of Fame:

Dr. PhilWeird Al YankovicJohn OatesTom SelleckBurt ReynoldsMr. BelvedereNed FlandersWilford BrimleyErrol FlynnRon BurgundyClyde Lundgren Mustachefreddie mercurymonopoly guyhulk hoganmario brothers

For more information you can visit the American Mustache Institute.

As you are inspired, please add to this list of legendary mustache men. If you have a legendary mustache, let us know, we’ll add you to the list.


Digg!

TV’s Greatest Theme Songs

Family Ties Autographed PictureOver the past 250 years, there have been some great TV theme songs. Songs that sweep you up, and bring you back to the days of yester yore. Some of Frankie and my favorites are Growing Pains, MacGuyver, Dukes of Hazard, Gimme a Break and Family Ties. With Family Ties being king of the crop.

If you are a Family Ties fan like we are, you can get your fill at Family Ties Online. I’ve also posted the lyrics to the theme song below. So what about you? What are your favorite TV theme songs?

Without Us
Sung by: Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams
Music by: Tom Scott
Lyrics by: Jeff Barry

I bet we’ve been together for a million years
And I’ll bet we’ll be together for a million more
Oh, it’s like I started breathing on the night we kissed
And I can’t remember what I ever did before

What would we do, baby, without us?
What would we do, baby, without us?
And there ain’t no nothing we can’t love each other through
What would we do, baby, without us?
Sha-la-la-la

Hot Beans in Love, the blog

Benjamin NelsonHello, Chicago! Benji Nelson here. Yep, that’s me off to the right looking pretty snazzy. There’s nothing like tight fittin’ jeans, white tennies and a snappy shirt over a turtle-neck.

Anywho, welcome to Hot Beans in Love, the blog! This is my first time bloggering, so hang in there as I’m still getting used to the Interweb. Frankie, my lovely wife, and I will try and post here a couple of times a week. We’ve got oh so much to say!

Of course the reason you are here is to learn all about our new show “Hot Beans in Love”! If you happen to use the MySpaces, then you can check us out there as well. This show is going to be a saucy mix of song, story telling, audience banter and more. Not much more, but a little bit more.

We love to chat with the “everyday people”, so leave a comment or a thought, and we’ll be sure to try and figure out how to reply.

Well, that’ll do it for now. I’m off to buy a sweater-vest.
