FYE: A Cinderella Story: Playing it Safe

There have been countless versions of the tale of Cinderella. Just like Sherlock Holmes, there are alternate universes and stories where the Cinderella Story – rags to riches, torment to happiness – takes place. But Disney’s path to reinventing their own classic princess film has been leaving some red flags.  


DIY Vanity Tray

As I was thinking of what I should do for this week’s DIY project, I realized that my bathroom counter was a little too messy for my taste. While surfing the Internet, I came across this idea of making your own vanity tray that you can put whatever you like in them. The process is extremely easy and the final outcome is very nice.


FYE: Pirates of the Caribbean 5 plot details revealed

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has officially begun filming in Australia. Before you groan over the extension of another series, read up on the synopsis. This is not a Captain Jack Sparrow solo film like “On Stranger Tides.” This film gets back to where “At World’s End” left us – and we may see some beloved characters once more. 

At the VIP reception after the show Joshua Mazur and Kristina Manning high-five. Kristina Manning said, "We were both emotional that it was over because Josh and I got really close over the course of the show." Manning laughed, "we just didn't know what to say so we high-fived."

Whatever films you missed will have an extended theatrical release after scoring their coveted Academy Award nomination. But the top flicks in this year’s nomination list have exhibited peak levels of problematic storylines, something you should consider when brushing up on the nominees before the big day on Feb. 22.


“Til Signing Day Do Us Part: The Craziness—In a Mostly-Good Way—of College Football Recruiting and National Signing Day

This year, February 4th marked what some call college football’s national holiday. Yes, the much-revered and looked forward to National signing day came and went once again with the same pomp and circumstance to which it has become accustomed over the years. This year’s class, depending on which scouting service you listen to, had either Byron Cowart, Trent Thompson, or Kahlil McKenzie at the top of the list. All of them are defensive linemen, which was a theme that was certainly prevalent at the top of this year’s recruiting crop as the “big uglies” generally took up about five of the top ten spots.
