Summer is the time to kick back, relax… and watch Netflix. When you’re not outside enjoying the summer sun, check out these awesome TV shows that are available instantly on Netflix:
Hey, you can finally join in on the conversation when all of your friends are frantically discussing this show. “Breaking Bad,” a series about a high school chemistry teacher who starts making crystal meth, is one of the hottest TV shows right now. There are four seasons on Netflix, so get watchin’.
For all of the mystery lovers out there, this action-packed and witty series is definitely for you. There are two seasons on Netflix each with only three episodes, but the episodes are about an hour and a half long. Sherlock is perfect for when you want more than a measly 25-minute show, but less than a full-length movie. Each episode is its own suspenseful mystery. Continue reading
As college students, it seems as if we’re constantly being told how young we are – but there are certain things that remind us just how long we have actually been around:
1. When “Finding Dory” comes out, “Finding Nemo” will be 12 years old.
2. All of the Spice Girls are almost 40.
3. Your neighbor, who you remember as a toddler, is now in fifth grade. This is the first person you have actually watched grow from an infant into almost a real person. Remember how old you felt in fifth grade? Continue reading
If your general outlook on life abides by peace and love, head on over to the Eisenhower Auditorium at 7:30 on Friday when the musical “HAIR” brings its peace-loving story to the stage.
The rock musical centers on a group of young hippies (who could probably use some of Valley’s hair tips) living in the East Village in New York called the “tribe” in the wake of the Vietnam War.
“It’s true to that era of peace and love and the Vietnam War time,” says Laura Sullivan, marketing director for the Center for the Performing Arts. “It’s kind of Broadway’s historical look at that time frame.” Continue reading
With the summer season rapidly approaching, its time to stockpile a few books to read while soaking up the sun. Here are some of the most anticipated novels of Spring 2013, so keep an eye out for them.
“The Interestings” by Meg Wolitzer
The summer that president Nixon resigns, six teenagers at performing arts summer camp become best friends. Years later the bond remains influential and strong, but a lot can change in that time. In “The Interestings”, Wolitzer follows the characters through their lives, their achievements Continue reading
For a lot of us, reminiscing on our “true 90s kid” childhood always entails talking about our favorite TV shows – from the developmental shows like “Blue’s Clues” to the awesome mysteries of “Scooby Doo”, we had the best shows to watch growing up.
What’s even better than watching these shows when we were little, is watching them now and realizing all of the jokes we missed. The kicker – most of them were adult themed and aimed at our parents so they didn’t pull their hair out watching reruns of “The Powerpuff Girls.”
Regardless of whether any of these were purposeful or really strange coincidences, I thank all of the writers for giving me something to laugh at while I babysit (or you know, when I’m home for a break and there’s nothing else to do at 11 a.m.). Here are some things that will probably blow your mind. Caution: they might ruin your childhood. Continue reading
Most people hope to keep their young, good looks for as long as humanly possible. But in Hollywood, change can keep you relevant when your stardom starts to simmer—especially when that change comes in the form of an extreme makeover. These stars have taken huge steps to completely alter their physical appearance and judging from the publicity they’ve received, it seems like they’ve accomplished their goal.
The former Nickelodeon princess recently debuted a drastic new look complete with enlarged lips, big blonde curls and check piercings. But how can one forget how adorable she was on “The Amanda Show” and “All That”?
Way back when, 50 Cent was an icon of pure sexiness. He had an arsenal of abdominal muscles that made women swoon and men do hundreds of sit-ups at the gym. But take Continue reading

Remember when you were a kid and the best thing was popping your favorite VHS tape of “Cinderella” into the VCR? Well now those classic tales are just about everywhere. ABC’s hit drama “Once Upon a Time” has given classic characters ranging from Snow White to Red Riding Hood’s grandmother new lives. Plus, “The Wizard of Oz” just got his own movie, and a few princesses are in line to be turned from cartoon to live-action fairy tale fun.
Hollywood has caught a case of fairy tale fever. In addition to movies like “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” and “Jack the Giant Slayer”, which have already hit theatres, many other classic tales are getting the star treatment in the next few years.
One reason for the sudden interest in giving the classics some makeovers could be the aspect of familiarity. But while everyone knows the story of Belle and Aurora, what about the background of Maleficent and the Beast? Well, that’s exactly what Hollywood wants us to find out.
Ever watch Sleeping Beauty and wonder what Maleficent’s deal was? Well, all you have to do is wait another year to see Angelina Jolie step into the evil sorceress’s shoes. (Did she actually wear shoes?) The film Continue reading
