Making her first appearance on this blog is Patricia “Tan Mom” Krentcil. For those who don’t know about Tan Mom, this overly tan New Jersey woman was accused of taking her daughter into a tanning both with her. While that has yet to be proven, one thing we know for sure is that she goes tanning a bit too much. But 20 years earlier, she was quite the looker.
After viewing these before and after pictures and seeing the drastic changes that excessive tanning has caused to this once attractive woman, it got me thinking about the cast of “Jersey Shore” and what they will look like in 20 years. Using the most advanced age progression technology (Google image search and Microsoft Paint), I have created some images of what I think Snooki and friends will look like after two decades of tanning and partying. Enjoy!

Pete & Elda’s in Neptune is a landmark bar and pizza joint at the Jersey Shore. The place is most famous for its pizza challenge, where if you eat a whole extra large pizza, you win a t-shirt. You can’t go anywhere along the shore in the summer without seeing at least a handful of people proudly wearing their Pete & Elda’s shirts.
Last week, the day finally came for me to earn my own Pete & Elda’s shirt. Though my friends who have completed the challenge told me it really isn’t that hard, I still expected it to be difficult. Eating a whole pizza definitely isn’t something I do every day. When the pizza came, I realized I had nothing to be worried about. The crust was paper thin, crispy, and slightly charred. Just like matzo! I knew I had this in the bag. Check out the video below to see how I fared.
The challenge was a lot easier than I ever expected. Despite the name “Double Extra Large” the pizza wasn’t big at all. Now for a real pizza eating challenge at the Jersey Shore, I suggest eating a whole large pie at Three Brothers in Belmar.
Like the slideshow above? I have more!
Celebrate an either late or really early Halloween by watching as I create a scale replica of Snooki out of pumpkins.

Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve updated. Deal with it.
I’ve successfully survived my first summer living at the Jersey Shore. Though that’s not to say there weren’t a few close calls – like a hurricane, a tornado, a slight altercation with a bouncer, etc. That being said, I’d like to share a few pictures.
Let’s start with this one:
I was lucky enough to attend a bonfire party on the beach. That really was quite an experience. The only bad part? I was under the impression that a fire at the beach would attract Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, but no such luck. Read the rest of this entry »

No shore traffic for me this summer - definitely looking forward to that!
Flowers are in bloom, the weather’s getting warmer, and girls all over New Jersey are visiting tanning booths and throwing up their meals in order to look good in a bikini. These are all signs that summer is coming to the Jersey Shore. And I couldn’t be happier, especially after the winter we had this year. So what am I looking forward to most about this summer in the Armpit of America? Keep reading to find out.
1. Finally being popular – As this will be my first summer living at the beach, I may finally know what it’s like to be popular! From what I’ve heard, when you have a beach house, people come out of the woodwork to come over. So even though I’ll probably be taken advantage of by some of my random acquaintances who want a place to chill before going to the beach or crash after going to the bars, it will feel like I have so many more friends!
2. Corn – Throughout the fall, winter, and spring, we’re stuck eating corn out of a can or from the freezer. Not in summer though. Come July, New Jersey provides its residents with the best, sweetest corn imaginable. It’s so unbelievably good, you don’t even have to cook it. Hell, you don’t heve have to husk it! Take that, Nebraska!
3. Outdoor Bars – The bars at the Jersey Shore are fun all year round. But they can get a little cramped and stuffy during the off-season. Once summer comes, they open up their outdoor sections, allowing guests the option to escape the guidos and crappy coverbands inside, and hang around outside. That being said, here’s a quick list of my favorite outdoor bars: Read the rest of this entry »

I had originally intended to recap each and every episode of MTV’s groundbreaking and highly influential show. However, I gave up half-way through the second season, which took place in Miami despite being called Jersey Shore. I apologize, but I’m sure you understand. As we all know, each episode was pretty much the same. Sammi and Ronnie fight and make up. Vinny, Pauly D, and Mike “The Situation” hook up with as many girls as possible. Angelina starts shit with everyone. J-WOWW dresses like a slut. Snooki does something adorable.
For the third season, the gang was back whoring it up in Seaside Heights. Though the season started out strong, it soon fizzled out. It’s sad, but these people have become caricatures of themselves and no longer seem that interesting. Even sadder, they are all celebrities now and make more in one year than I’ll probably make in my lifetime. All that aside, the show is still pretty entertaining. But if you haven’t been keeping up with it, let me fill you in on who/what went down this season (along with some great artwork by Jennifer Herd of bite.ca).
J-WOWW and Snooki
"Is that a lightsaber in your pocket, or are you just happy to see us?"
Everyone’s favorite pickle-loving best-selling author (check out her first draft!) is still on her quest to find the perfect guido. Though Snooki makes no attempt to hide her feelings for her cast-mate Vinnie, there’s always some kind of drama keeping those two apart. Aside from the early episode where she got arrested for being drunk at the beach, our girl Snooks was pretty low-key this season. Read the rest of this entry »
