Summer Fun: It’s Not Just For Kids Anymore

By Becky Larson, Ah, those summer days when we were kids. Riding our bikes through the neighborhood, swimming all afternoon and playing baseball in the park.  It sometimes seems as we enter into the “real world” of adulthood those long summer days and nights are a thing of the past.  Jobs, family and trying […]

Confessions of a Reality TV Junkie

By Melissa Villarin, I’ll admit it, I love reality TV. All reality TV. From MTV to TLC, Bravo to E!, reality shows are my weakness. Just the other night I watched “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” and I didn’t hate it. I’m not really sure when this happened, but I’m going to blame MTV. “The Real […]

Mario’s New Year’s Resolutions

By Cory Hunt, 1)   Stop hanging out with girls who are constantly “getting kidnapped” for attention. 2)   Donkey Kong has caused far more damage behind the wheel than his cousin ever did climbing buildings and knocking down planes.  Never let DK drive on Rainbow Road again. 3)   I never thought there was a worse […]

Call of Duty: The Video Game Phenomenon Releases Its 7th Installment, “Black Ops”

By Andre Levesque, By the time you have read this, I will be long gone. My family will be left all alone and I will be going off to war in the Jungles of Vietnam, Russia or some other foreign nation. No. I’m not in the military, and I don’t get paid to do […]

Bravo (in) Sacramento

By Lindsey Arasmith, I don’t discriminate against TV. I try to watch any show at least twice before I pass judgment. That said, please try to postpone your judgment of my terrible programming choices.  (See? I know I am watching trash. That has to make it a little more acceptable… right?) My latest guilty […]
