Dear MTV,


In an announcement this week you mentioned that the "Jersey Shore" kids are going back to "the homeland" for season four. Are you really serious about Italy being their homeland? Shouldn’t Snooki be going to Chili instead of Italy? Do the Italian people have any idea tha… Read full post »

Losing the internet over the weekend made me seriously wonder what we did before Facebook and email. How did we honestly exist? Instead of calling someone now I email them and never think twice about not remembering a phone number. It is just one click away and everything you need is… Read full post »
