You know a movie is great when it is able to make the audience both cry and laugh in the same five minutes. The movie, â??Life As We Know It,â?? does just that. This film opened in theaters last weekend and is sure to be a hit with all kinds of audiences.
â??Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Gaâ??Hooleâ?? is based on the childrenâ??s book series Guardians of Gaâ??Hoole by Kathryn Lasky.

In Bill Brysonâ??s latest book â??At Homeâ?? (A Short History of Private Life), the seemingly mundane reality of domestic home life suddenly becomes amusing.
I have to admit that I am usually not one for anything concerning legal matters. I mean, I love my crime shows, but if it is a book concerning any of that you can forget it!
The Panhandle South Plains Fair is one of Lubbockâ??s most anticipated events of the year. Sure, there are the rides and concerts, but you canâ??t go to the fair without eating the food.
Within Lubbock lies a music organization that is worth the time to look at and lend your ears to. This is the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. It is composed of about 58 wonderful musicians and a grand conductor, Tomasz Golka, who has been with the LSO since their 2007-2008 season. The 2010-2011 season is entitled â??Darkness and Lightâ?? and features pieces from Tchaikovsky to Beethoven and many more.
Last Saturday night, I, along with eight other members of Kappa Phi Kappa, worked the concession stand in the Fair Park Coliseum at the South Plains Fair. It was a great night because we had free parking passes, free admission and as much free food from the concession stand as we wanted.
Even with only one season aired, the TV show â??Gleeâ?? has climbed the charts and has become one of the most talked about shows in America. With its combination of humor, musical numbers, and drama, â??Gleeâ?? has something for everyone. Last year the TV show took the title for Best Television Series â?? Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globe Awards as well as the Peopleâ??s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy in 2010.
I was recently able to get my hands on the OneRepublic album titled â??Waking Upâ?? and Iâ??m glad I did. I was always disappointed that they only hit the mainstream scene because Timbaland remixed it and added a little urban flare to it. Donâ??t get me wrong the remix was good, but the original was still good as well. The point is I guess I canâ??t get too upset about it considering he helped get some spotlight on a band that deserved it.
