Todd & Erin 30 Day Gratitude Challenge

So, I’m coming out of Day 8 of a pneumonia so rotten I first feared it was going to kill me–then I was really getting concerned that the Sweet Embrace of Death might actually pass me by.  The first day of November is a great time to return to lucidity–the humble month between the dark madness of October and the…

There’s A WHAT In My Ear?

There’s A WHAT In My Ear?     Yeah, this shouldn’t traumatize Katie Melua for like, LIFE or anything…  Katie’s a big pop star in Britain (think Katie Perry-ish) and she endured a “scritching kind of sound” in her ear for a week or so until she caved and went to an audiologist.  When they ran the scope into her…

Awesome Pizza in SLC?!

I am not being paid to endorse this product. I’ve heard some co-workers and friends talk about how good the pizza at Pizza Studio is, so I just went out…

Benedict Cumberbatch Is Engaged – In The Most Charming, British Way Possible

Here’s the bad news: Benedict Cumberbatch is off the market. The good news?  He did it in the most charming, old-school, British way possible.  He very properly placed an announcement in the “The Times of London” announcing his engagement to Sophie Hunter, who’s a 36 year old, Oxford-educated theatre director.  She’s adorable.  Plus, now I have to love Benedict even…

Steve-O From “Jackass” – Unhinged, But Really Sort Of Adorable

I almost hate interviewing celebrities I like. If they’re whiney little Entitled Princesses (don’t get me started on a certain Big Action Star we interviewed who couldn’t stop complaining about a “substandard inflight meal”) you just want to cut the interview short and spend the rest of the air time mocking at them. So, we braced ourselves when Steve-O (from MTV…

Remember How Hot Spandau Ballet Was? They’re Back & They’re Still Hot

  I still remember my first slow dance with a cute boy in Junior High School–holding sweaty hands and rocking back and forth to “True” from Spandau Ballet. (Yes, Virginia, “True” was an actual hit before it turned into your Saturday night go-to Karaoke staple.)  So romantic!  And awkward, but most things are at that age. The guys in Spandau…

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 – The Review

Luke Hickman from The Reel Place here, with the review on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
