Whenever you hear Time Is On My Side by The Rolling Stones, you think of the Denzel Washington movie, Fallen.
During a power outage, you decide to listen to an album by Giant Squid on your iPod because you find the experience surreal and entertaining.
You are reading Schild’s Ladder, a science fiction novel by Greg Egan. Not only are you enthralled by this book, having never read his work before, but you are now anxious to read everything he has ever written.
The following Tweet makes you laugh: “I spilled quinoa out of my chinoise and sopped it up with a chamois. Say wha’???” — This Tweet was written by actor/ badass, @TheStevenWeber.

The words “Criterion Collection” make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Each time you finish reading a novel, you feel something akin to empty nest syndrome.
I find this to be a more entertaining Star Wars experience than watching those dreadful prequels.
Having to postpone returning to a Renaissance Faire makes you sad…
While seeing Your Highness in the movie theater, you get really excited when you notice that the actor Charles Dance plays the king (not to mention the fact that you recognize Charles Dance in the first place).
You haven’t watched Adventures in Babysitting in at least a decade, but still found yourself whistling the tune that is creepily whistled in the clip above.

This man may be most recognized by the general public as an actor from The King of Queens, United States of Tara, and as the voice of Remy the Rat in Ratatouille. However, he is perhaps one of the greatest and most honest stand-up comedians working today. Here is an example of his aforementioned comedic greatness.

You and someone you’ve dated had a conversation not unlike the following:
YOU: They’re showing Office Space right now.
YOUR DATE: I didn’t really like that movie, or the TV show version.
YOU: What are you talking about?
YOUR DATE: You know… The Office on NBC.
YOU: Those are two separate things. Office Space was created by Mike Judge in the late 1990s. The Office, on the other hand, was based on a British television series of the same name by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
YOUR DATE: They’re both about people in offices. It’s all the same thing.
