"Two Ninas" marks a lively debut for writer-director Neil Turitz. The plot is boy-meets-babe basic — just double up on the babes. Dating loser Marty Sachs (a solid Ron Livingston) is ready to dump Gotham for less-competitive Maine when, boom, he meets two willing Ninas — Cohen (Cara Buono) and Harris (Amanda Peet) — and tries to juggle them both. Silly boy. Sassy movie. The performances are moonbeam-light. Peet is a scrappy pleasure, and "Law and Order" rerun freaks will be jazzed by Jill Hennessy as a Texas bartender. Turitz keeps it comic and romantic in just the right doses. Looking for a fun date flick? You found it.

    “Vans”

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
