For those of you who actually go out on Saturday nights instead of sitting in alone, watching TV with your arm elbow-deep in a bag of Doritos, catch up on the latest SNL spoof that's trending across the country. Everyone loves a playful jab at Disney now and again. Former WWE-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson makes a beautiful Bambi, don't you think?
Bored with running? Is the gym just not cutting it for you? Carson Dean recently showed the world that treadmill choreography is the best kind of postmodern exercise. Don't believe me? Just watch.
It's mid-March, and the NCAA madness has begun. Even though you're probably getting excited to root on your alma mater, as John Oliver notes, the games are so full of product placement and branding that the only thing left to be sponsored are the sponsorships themselves.
Despite college coaches getting paid millions while the hard-working athletes are getting paid nothing, the games are undeniably exciting, especially if you bet money on them. For more upcoming events to get the spring season r... [Read more]
Sleepy? Me too. Daylight Savings was this weekend, setting us all an hour forward in time, but an hour back mentally, and as John Oliver notes, the struggle to change the clock on your microwave is real.
We can only hope that such outdated practices will be eliminated in due time, but until then, check out the following event tickets to upcoming shows in your area that are sure to make you and your family a little less cranky:
Cirque du Soleil

As soon as the weather hits “sunny and 75”, Northeastern country music fans are itching to kick off the summer with Luke Bryan tickets, a Miranda Lambert concert, or Jason Aldean tour tickets. And, like most concert rituals, tailgating in the lot outside the venue is a given. Fans will post the obligatory status update to kick off the party, “It’s a smile, it’s a kiss. It’s a sip of wine, it’s summertime,” in honor of Kenny Chesney. Most of the not-originally-from-the-South redneck wannabes will... [Read more]
Lady Gaga gave Julie Andrews a run for her money last night at the Oscars when she performed a montage of songs from The Sound of Music and surprisingly nailed it. Shedding her typical shock pop accoutrements and donning an elegant white gown instead, Gaga showcased her vocal range for a pleasant, though long and perhaps unnecessary, musical number to commemorate the film's 50th anniversary.
Impressed? You can catch Lady Gaga on tour with the great Tony Bennett to hear jazzy standards, devoid o... [Read more]
Last night was the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, and it was an immense success full of sweet reunions, Taylor Swift's comedic fails, and the revival of my favorite Jeopardy bit.
If you missed SNL, there are plenty of other event tickets going on sale this week to comedians on tour, hilarious theater shows, and kid's entertainment. Add some laughter to your weekend to help get through this bitterly cold winter.

This week came with a very sad announcement: Jon Stewart will be leaving The Daily Show.
Rest assured, I'm sure he will find a more than adequate replacement. If you've never been a part of his live studio audience, then I highly recommend doing so before it's too late. It's free after all, and, if nothing else, is an excuse to take a sick day and romp around NYC. For more live comedy events, check out the following comedians who are touring the country soon:
Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen

Los Angeles Angels
