Phantogram, Green Day, Sum 41 Highlight a Week of New Album Releases!

  • 11:29 am Monday, October 10th, 2016 by Kyle Taylor

Fridays have become synonymous with new music releases, and last week was no different. Numerous new albums were released last Friday, but perhaps none more anticipated than Greenday’s Revolution Radio, Sum 41‘s 13 Voices, and Phantogram’s Three. To makes things even better, they all appear to be very good albums, based on my opinion, combined with early critical response. Even more good news is that one of these bands just so happens to be playing Next Big Thing this year (Phantogram!). Sum 41 just played St. Pete’s State Theatre as part of their Don’t Call It a Sum Back Tour. Green Day also just announced a [More]

Charlie is Danielle’s ‘Dog of the Week’ from the Humane Society of Pinellas

  • 7:56 am Friday, August 19th, 2016 by danielle97x

You know, not EVERY dog at the Humane Society of Pinellas lives on-site.

In fact, my dog this week is Charlie and he’s currently living with a foster family!!

Isn’t he the sweetest?! Charlie is a 7-year-old Retriever mix.

I hear he gets along great with other dogs as well as kids…and he’s even house trained and crate trained.

It breaks my heart when I hear stories – like Charlie’s – where his family was no longer able to take care of him….

But I KNOW one of you guys will give him an AMAZING forever home.

You can get all of Charlie’s info here!!

Ummmm I Don’t Think There’s a Gold Medal for That Belly Flop

  • 10:02 am Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 by danielle97x

I’ve been totally sucked into everything that’s going on in Rio…along with the rest of the world…over the past week and a half.

The other day, I watched a guy false-start his race during qualifying – which meant he wasn’t even allowed to compete in the actual event he’d been training YEARS for. As he literally laid crying on the sidelines, my stomach was in knots for him. I couldn’t imagine the disappointment he felt.

On the total opposite end of the spectrum, this EPIC diving fail yesterday by 2012 gold medalist Ilya Zakharov from Russia left me mildly amused (an emotion I [More]
