Hey Girl, You Like Ryans?

Since the dawn of Ryans there has been a precedent to compete them in an all out battle to win our collective hearts. First Name Ryans, Last name Ryans, Female Ryans, Fictional Ryans – doesn’t matter they are all going into the ring this week! Listen as Tuong and special guests Leslie Cserepy, Geoff McBride, and Desiree Connors Warmington grab their RY-ANd Gingers and rack their brains tRYAN’ to rank the Top 5 Ryans!

Pumpkin Spice and everything nice.

The days of lying on the beach, drinking Palm Bays on the patio, and cottage weekends at the lake are coming to an end but luckily Autumn is no slouch either when it comes to amazing things it has to offer. Join Tuong La and Unbe-Leaf-able guests Laura Gordon, Marc Quintaneiro, and Kristine Shadid as we rank the Best Things about Fall!

“Yessss my master” *kneels down cowering*

Fictional villains often seem to have unlimited resources to fund their evil plans. Even though we, the audience, are taught to despise these villains, sometimes it’s hard to resist their wealth of cash, their nefarious moral compass, or their smarmy accent. It’s times like these when we wonder “What would it be like to work for this villain?”. Would they treat me well? What’s the benefits package like? Will I die horribly? These are the questions we ask on this week’s Ranked as Tuong La and Underling Candidates Taylor Fleming, Alex Toth, and Josef Addleman rank the Top 5 Best Villains to Work For!

“I used to be with it, but they changed what it was”

Summer is finally coming to a close and responsibilities of being an adult are starting to set in. But remember our “glory days” of our youth when we didn’t have a care in the world? When did we go from wild partying every weekend to going to bed at a reasonable hour, on a Saturday night, just so we can have early morning brunch with our parents the next day? This week Tuong La and “Super Mature” special guests James Beattie, Lindsay Gordon, and Laura Gordon age themselves and talk about the Top 5 Ways to Feel Like A Grown Ass Adult!

Don’t make it weird.

Growing up in front of a television, it was hard not to admire some of the animated characters we saw on our favorite shows/movies. Something in the way these character talked, or the way they acted, or – yup – even the way they looked made us melt in a way that ‘Tommy’ or ‘Sally’ from school never would. This week Tuong La and Cartoon Crushers Angus MacDonald, Samantha Leggatt, and Meghan Murphy rank their favorite Cartoon Crushes that sparked their err..”awakening”.

Last year we ranked some dogs, so it only seemed right to finally put together a list of it’s fur-midable foe – the cat! Join Tuong La and cat lover paw-destrians Leslie Cserepy, Angus MacDonald, and Samantha Leggatt as we rank a purr-fect Top 5 List of the best Fictional Cats!

It’s getting hot in herre…

Do you feel that? Sun is out, Ray-Bans are on, and summer is in full swing! What better way to groove out to the nicest time of the year than to listen to some tunes while you’re hanging out the cottage, cruising down the highway with your windows down, or laying down in your 10ft sandcastle on a beach. Join Tuong La and Saucy Summertime Lovers Adam Jasim, Ryan Hueglin, and Laura Gordon as they rank the Top 5 best summer songs of ALL TIME!

Ground Rules

  • songs must invoke the spirit of summer rather than a multi-purpose song that is good at all times of the year
  • nostalgia can be a factor
  • has good vibes and makes you happy/content (ie relaxing, reminds of you of the beach, water)
  • we are talking about ALL TIME songs
  • doesn’t actually have to have the word “summer” in the song
