    If you are anything like me (and I’m sure many of you also own several cats and hope to God for a “Golden Girls” reunion) then you will LOVE this version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by Zach Braff and Donald Faison. Let’s just say, I love “Scrubs.” I love these guys, and the subtle… More ▸

  • Thursday Listicles!

  • First Matisyahu lost his beard, then he lost his manners

    Maybe he is the anti-Goliath, and the beard kept him meek and calm?

  • Another Winehouse track released

    Just like Tupac, Amy Winehouse hasn’t let death keep her from releasing more material. From her upcoming posthumous album, “Lioness: Hidden Treasures,” here is the soulful song, “Halftime.” Let’s just hope that her record label keeps a few tracks under wraps so there is something new to listen to when the album is released. More ▸
