If I Stay

The exceptional coaches get a lot of attention in When the Game Stands Tall, but one of De La Salle’s real-life Spartans gets the spotlight as well, and it will break your heart.

        

The newest Scooby-Doo mystery is out and this time, it's personal! In Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy, Velma and the Gang head to Transylvania (that would be Transylvania, Pennsylvania!) to claim the cursed castle she inherits.

        

University of Missouri’s esteemed School of Journalism seemingly taught me everything a budding journo would need to know: how to write, graphic design, even ad sales.

        

Winning is something Jim Caviezel and Michael Chiklis know a little something about. Besides their successful and noteworthy acting careers, both were student athletes.

        

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your college-age self? I would tell myself that it’s okay to dream big. Last week, I was a special guest correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight" covering The Expendables 3.

Taylor Swift
Pop

Yes, I write album reviews – but Taylor Swift’s new single, Shake It Off is bigger than a new album release – it’s an EVENT – and everyone's invited!!!

Yesterday, Taylor appeared before a handpicked audience to announce 3 huge surprises – for her fans and fans-to-be – which pretty much includes most of humanity.

First came the new single.

Next was the revelation of her new album, titled 1989 – coming in October – which Taylor suggests will take a totally new, pop music direction.

PG-13

The Giver is on my 13-year old’s must-see movie list because she loved the book her class read in 7th grade. My thought? It looks like required reading: the cover is so blah – just an old man, hunched over.

PG-13

The Expendables movies are rewarding for grown-ups: all our childhood heroes come out to play on one stage, while poking a little fun at their real lives and images.  For boys, though, it’s not the actors who hold value – it’s the appeal of real life

The Vamps
Rock

“Everybody try’na be a billionaire, but every time I look at you I just don’t care”. Up-and-comers, The Vamps new single, Somebody To You forever binds them with a fan base of millions – by voicing a simple, yet by all accounts evasive sentiment that’s soooo lacking in pop music today.
