Smile for the birdie

Scenes from this weekend’s One Flight Up photo shoot. Enjoy.

Seen ’em?

Is this a meme yet? Roger Ebert claims that you really need to have seen these 102 films before you can have an informed discussion about movies. I’m listing them below. The ones I’ve seen are starred (for a total of 51). How many have you seen? * 2001: A Space Odyssey The 400 Blows […]

Ice cream alert

Don’t Touch Me There

Did you know that Reba McEntire recorded a song called “Don’t Touch Me There?” She did. I was not aware of this. A questionable song title, in my opinion, but who am I to question The Reba? Lyrics below. These hands You can hold them all night if you want to And these lips Won’t […]

Who says turtles are slow?

Wanted to give a shout-out to the women’s basketball team from Maryland—the Terps are the new NCAA Champions!! Although the Women’s NCAA Tournament doesn’t get the attention the men’s program does, their championship game was much more exciting than the Florida/UCLA men’s final on Monday night. There shouldn’t be a championship game or series without […]
