The Legend Continues to be Awesome

When my friend called me up and asked me to go see the second Anchorman movie, I was scared. Having perfected the art of lewd, crude, and rude, the original Anchorman is still to this day one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.


Justin Bieber's Music Mondays Revitalize Death of the Album Discussion

What's Happened to the Disney Channel?

Disney Channel Original Series’ are just not what they used to be. I remember coming home from elementary school and immediately occupying the couch to engage in my own mini marathon of fascinating TV shows such as That’s So Raven and Lizzie McGuire. Ah, those were the days. Now, all I ever come across on the once respectable Disney Channel are shows such as A.N.T. Farm and Dog With a Blog.
