The Return of Futurama

Attention all Futurama lovers and Futurama unknowers:

Coming soon to Comedy Central– the return of Futurama! Wow, after reading Futurama so many times it starts to sound silly. Let’s just say ‘Rama is returning to television this summer.

Very exciting to people who loved the show, and also exciting for people who never got into it. Now everyone has a chance to learn about it and love it. [Wow Jackie, I never knew you were  such a fan. Is it after we watched it in M. Langford’s class? I always cry at the series finale when Fry plays the holophone for Leila and it plays a picture of them holding hands, o god o god. – ab]

Pandora: Perfect for Your Christmas Cheer!

One of the best parts of the holiday season is the music. While I start listening to “The Muppets Christmas Carol” soundtrack in early November, others wait until after Thanksgiving to pop in the ol’ Christmas classics.

Sure- the old classics are great, but I like to add some new tunes into the mix. One of the best ways to discover new music is on the ultimate online radio station,

Eric Hutchinson is ‘Alright With Me’

I may be out of the music loop, because I just discovered singer/songwriter, Eric Hutchinson.  Thanks to Pandora I came across this young biddy and really liked what I heard.

His hit single “Alright With Me”, became stuck in my head, and after hearing a few more tunes off his album, “Sounds Like This”, I decided to buy the CD.

Hutchinson released his album, “Sounds Like This”, on his own in 2007, and the album soared to number 5 on the Itunes Store. Warner Bros. Records picked up the album in 2008, and now the 29-year-old is touring with Kelly Clarkson.

Michael Buble is Buble’ing up the Charts

Michael Bublé’s latest album, Crazy Love is number 1 on the Billboard charts for the second week in a row.


I have been a fan of Michael’s music since I was a freshman in college. (Thank you for introducing me to him William Cimino) This new album is by far my favorite yet.

He is known for covering classic jazz hits from Frank Sinatra to Dean Martin, and even Nat King Cole. Michael Buble takes each song and re works it to make it his own. He has also written numerous hit singles like, “Everything” and “Home”.

Balloon Incident in Colorado


Update #2/Jackie’s opinion: Ok, so does anyone else find it weird that this family has already been on TV before, and the father is this “self proclaimed” scientist, who builds this balloon thing.

What 6 year old stays hiding for over 3 hours?

OH, and last night on the news the reporter asked him, “why  did you stay hiding for so long?” The young boy’s response was something along the lines of, ” to get on a show”.


It’s a hoax baby!

Update: So, they found him alive hiding under a box in his attic. How anti-climactic.
Earlier today in Colorado, a 6-year-old boy was thought to have taken off in his parent’s experimental hot air balloon.

After almost two hours of floating (at times floating several hundred feet in the air) The balloon crashed down in a field, where authorities rushed to help the young boy, but there was no boy inside!

Authorities are searching through the boy’s neighborhood, home, and surrounding area. As of now, there is still no sign of him. They are unsure if the boy fell from the balloon, or was never in the balloon to begin with.

Apparently, this was a experiment the young boy and father were working on together.

Kanye West is Still an Asshole, Taylor Swift is Still Really Cool


The MTV Video Music Awards aired Sunday night.

I don’t think I’ve watched these awards since I was in middle school, but I am a huge Taylor Swift fan and I knew she was up for Best Female Video. It was the first award given out and Taylor won!

Not even three sentences into her acceptance speech our always sweet Taylor was rudely interrupted by none other than Kanye West.

He pulled the microphone out of her hand after storming onto the stage and said, “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, and I’m going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time,” he shouted. “One of the best videos of all time!”

My New Favorite Shows


Over the last couple of months, my life has revolved around a DVR and Netflix. That makes me sound like a huge loser who just watches TV and movies all day, but once you get into a good show you just don’t want to leave your house. The characters become your new friends. That is healthy right?

During a Hurricane You Should Probably Stay Away From Water


Acadia National Park’s Thunder Hole, located in Maine, is a place where many tourists are known for gathering to watch waves crash into a crevasse and make a thundering sound while splashing high in the air.

This past Sunday many tourists went to check out the waves caused by Hurricane Bill.

Now you would think that hurricane+waves would make you be a little cautious. I am sure it made a cool sound, but while there is a hurricane frolicking throughout the Atlantic Ocean it might be a tad dangerous.
