Movie Review
PG-13

“Mama always said life is a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.“ Replace “life” with “PG-13 movies” and Mrs. Gump’s words ring with even more truth. Hold on, you may say, this theory doesn’t apply to Sept.

Ariana Grande
Pop

Star of 2 top rated Nickelodeon TV shows and now the hottest breakout, female artist of our time. Ariana Grande is without a doubt, this generation’s Christina Aguilera or Mariah Carey. Her voice is one-in-a-million – rivaled by no one else in her age class. Gen Z has dubbed Ariana a bona fide star.

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.

        

UPDATE: Congrats Jenn M! You are the winner of the Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy DVD! Incidentally, all the Scooby Snacks got our mouth watering - yum! The newest Scooby-Doo mystery is out and this time, it's personal!

        

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.

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.
