Station 19 March 22. ABC 9pm

The latest installation in Shondaland, Station 19 looks like the next big hit. Three blocks away from the beloved Grey Sloan Memorial hospital, setting to Grey’s Anatomy, is a fire house that is sure to bring the heat in every way possible. The ensemble cast brings the drama as we follow Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) through her adventures of being a young firefighter, while working under her father and mentor, Captain Pruitt Herrera (Miguel Sandoval).  For Grey’s fans, we will also see Dr. Ben Warren (Jason George) make the transition from resident surgeon to rookie firefighter.

A Wrinkle In Time March 9

Oprah. Need I say more? This fantasy film looks like a hit for the whole family. The story follows Meg Murry (Storm Reid), as she discovers her father, Alex (Chris Pine), is being held captive on a distant planet far into the universe. To save her dad, Meg teams up with her little brother, new bestie and three astral travelers played by Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey. The film looks visually stunning, wildly gripping and heartfelt! I feel the only appropriate snack to sneak into this movie is…BREAD!!!!

Ricky Gervais: Humanity March 13

Netflix offers some great comedy specials. The lack of censorship always allows for more creative freedom and bigger laughs. Ricky Gervais is a comedic icon and this special is being crowned his best. There are no official trailers from Netflix out yet, but this sales clip is enough to get a glimpse of what to expect!

Lil Yachty Lil Boat 2 March 2

Snoop Dogg  Bible of Love March 16

George Ezra Staying at Tamara’s March 23

*Editor’s Choice*

En Vogue Electric Cafe March 30

Now it’s time for a breakdown, because En Vogue is back! The legendary girl group is back and showing that they have not skipped a beat. Fans have waited for over a decade for new music from the group and it is finally here! Electric Cafe promises to be everything we have grown to love from the ladies. Their first single, Rocket, has really taken off (pun intended) and has brought even more excitement around this album.

 

Trends:

Gelato Hues for Women’s Fashion

Who knew that your spring wardrobe could be so delicious? The spring fashion shows have been flooded with major designers using pastel, “ice cream colors” for the 2018 lines. The color choices may not seem too revolutionary, but there is something to be said for fashion’s tried and true.

Hawaiian Shirts for Men’s Fashion

Remember how your dad would insist that his Hawaiian button down was his nice party shirt? Well apparently he was just ahead of his time. This season, Hawaiian print shirts are just the thing for guys. To really solidify the trend, remember the oversized fit is in. If your dad was on the fluffier side, you might be able to rummage through that closet and be the trendiest while rocking his vintage classic.

Fairy Bread for Food

Move over Mermaid Frappucino’s and Unicorn Cakes, it’s time for the Fairies to shine…or sparkle in this case. That’s right, Fairy Bread is the newest trend in the American food world, but has already fluttered it’s way through Australia. The recipe is less magical than it sounds as it is mostly bread smeared with butter then covered in colorful sprinkles. Either way, I expect to see this colorful carb popping up in every hipster gastropub this spring.

 

Don’t you feel better now that you have everything you need to get through the next month? March into March like the lion you are!

VIDEO:Rolled Ice Cream, Cheetos Bagels And Grasshoppers Are Just Some Of The Unusual Things Brian Balthazar Has Eaten On ‘The Wendy Williams Show’

Published

on

You’ve seen pop culture expert, Brian Balthazar, appear on The Wendy Williams Show quite a bit over the last few years. He even co-hosted the show on three separate occasions. It wasn’t until his last visit where he and Jason Biggs chowed down on a KFC Cheetos Chicken Sandwich that it hit me: Being on the daytime talk show makes Brian Balthazar hungry!

The proof is in the pudding…pun definitely intended. Carla Hall made sure to bring some snacks for Brian when they cohosted together.

Sure, Wendy is known for telling us to “grab a snack and come on back”…

But you’d have to be absolutely famished to want to eat fish sliders at 10am.

He’s gotten so hungry he resorted to eating GRASSHOPPER TACOS on the show!

Could it be that Brian isn’t actually hungry though? Could he just be a brave soul willing to be the taste tester so we don’t have to? Could my theory be flawed?!

I suddenly feel like maybe we owe Brian a big thanks…

Either way, it’s fun to watch! Click below to take a look at a compilation of all the fun stuff Brian Balthazar has eaten on The Wendy Williams Show!

Can’t Go Out? Here’s Six Ways You Can See The World Right From Your Very Own Home

Published

on

Turns out there are plenty of ways to beat the boredom blues!

Countries around the world are being asked to practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Most businesses, attractions, theaters and museums have been closed down to help prevent the spread of the virus. Just last night here in the U.S., it was announced that the self-quarantine guidelines are to remain in place until April 30th of this year. Another month at home doesn’t have to mean another month of carb-loading and channel flipping though! There are actually quite a few ways to keep your brain stimulated during these unprecedented, sedentary times. Below you will find six ways to experience the world from your very own house…and don’t worry, I wouldn’t put anything on this list that would require changing out of your comfy sweats.

Virtually experience the happiest place on Earth.

Safe to say we can all use a little happiness during these troubling times so why not turn to the home of happiness itself, DisneyWorld. YouTube channel, Virtual Disney World, offers dozens of 360 degree videos that allow you to virtually experience DisneyWorld attractions, shows, hotels, monorails, trains, boats, park areas and more. These videos are fully immersive meaning you simply pan your VR-headset, phone or tablet in any direction to experience all of the excitement happening around you. Now, you can relive the magic you’ve loved your whole life anytime from anywhere! *Giant turkey leg smell not included….unless you’re actually cooking turkey legs while watching these videos, in which case I applaud your commitment.

Tour a national park on Google Earth.

Take a hike…well sort of. Hiking is a fun activity that can be done alone or with very few others, remember we are in socially distant times, but making your way to a trail might be a challenge these days. Public transportation schedules have been drastically altered and even if they weren’t, a crowded train or a bus just sounds like the breeding ground for some heinous germs right now. You could try to carpool but again…germs! You can avoid any viral risk by simply checking out one of the 30+ virtual hikes on Google Earth. Last year, Google Earth released virtual tours of some of the most beautiful parks in the country. Grand Canyon National Park, Redwood National Park, Everglades National Park and so many others are featured in this exciting experience. On your “hike” you will see some of the most breathtaking trails and views these parks have to offer. Best part? You don’t need bug spray.

Check out some of NYC’s finest street art.

It’s hard to feel particularly cultured when you’re wiping the crumbs from your second lunch off your overly worn pajamas. With that being said, we should not let our love for the arts fade like our flannels have. Instead, check out some of New York’s coolest street art via Google Arts and Culture. Their online experience 9 Amazing Street Art Murals In New York provides a fully immersive, virtual tour of some amazing art. In this tour you will see stunning artwork from prolific artists such as Eduardo Kobra, Keith Haring, Banksy and more. No need for a MetroCard to see these murals which is great because now you can put that $2.75 towards your next Seamless order.

Sing along while streaming your favorite Broadway shows.

Broadway has taught us all how defy gravity but now it’s helping us defy boredom too! Theater has been the perfect vehicle for escapism since it’s inception and now you can escape without even leaving your home! BroadwayHD is a streaming service that began broadcasting beloved Broadway shows back in 2015. With over 300 shows in their catalog, you can belt along to all of your favorite shows without having to worry about being escorted out of a theater. The platform is currently offering a free 7-day trial along with a very affordable $8.99/month plan. A one-year subscription is still cheaper than tickets to just one broadway show!

Virtually wander through some of the most impressive museums.

Staring at the same four walls of your apartment for weeks on end definitely won’t keep your mind stimulated, trust me I know. Combat the brain laze by learning about some of the world’s most fascinating arts and histories. Many of the world’s finest museums are offering virtual tours that provide users with a fully immersive experience. Never made it to that dream trip to Paris? Tour the Lourve from your couch! Embarrassed by how out of breath you were when you finally climbed all of those stairs getting into The Met? Skip the stairs and see it all online! Never perfected that English accent? That’s ok, no one will hear you on this virtual tour of The National Gallery in London! There are dozens of museums providing these tours and you can find most of them through a quick internet search. I listed a few below because this is the most brain stimulation I plan on having today.

Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

Musei Vaticani, Vatican City

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Natural History Museum, London

Musée d’Orsay, Paris

Go to a house party.

NOT LITERALLY!!! We all know with the social distancing guidelines the last thing we should do is host a house party. To remedy our social urges is the new digital platform called HouseParty, which allows users to throw virtual parties with their friends. Like on many other live-streaming apps, HouseParty allows you and your friends to simultaneously FaceTime. What makes this app special, however, is its gaming feature. With HouseParty you and your friends can choose from a variety of party games to play all while maintaining a safe distance. The app is available for iOS, Android, macOS, and Chrome and is truly putting a new twist on classic pajama parties.

Be sure to try something new today otherwise you might just go crazy. We are living in unprecedented times so we might as well try some unprecedented ways of entertaining ourselves. Stay safe out there and stay socially distant…only physically of course!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!
