Little Discoveries

Fourteen years ago, this country faced a tragedy. Since then, we have come together in our love for our country to prevent that event from occurring again. Bless the souls who left this Earth too soon and THANK YOU to everyone who has served this country. We will never forget 9/11.

Okay, slight warning: this edition of Little Discoveries is a bit nerdier than normal.

Lip Sync Battle: Ellen on Fallon | I love Ellen. And Jimmy. And Lip Sync Battles. This is just pure awesomeness - if it hasn't already made its way on to your screen yet then you need to watch this pronto.

Big Bang Wedding | Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite TV shows - not being able to watch it regularly has made me feel pretty sad inside (hello, Netflix, please fix this - no DVD player means no rentals!). Spoiler alert: one of my fave couples is getting married in the upcoming season and I'm SO excited.

Criticizing the Wrong Dreams? | This is an Odyssey piece written by a friend of mine at Creighton. I love T-Swift's "Wildest Dreams" video and was disappointed at the types of criticism people were throwing at it. Nick's writing perfectly articulates how people are failing to see the video for what it really is, and instead are focusing on the wrong things.

New iPhone, New iPad | So Apple released info about the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus - but more people are talking about what's going on with the new iPad. Steve Jobs once said "If you see a stylus, they blew it." Erm, the new iPad is kind of huge and I think for now I'll stick to my Air.

Marvel's Jessica Jones Coming At Ya | Netflix, yes. Marvel, yes. Female main character, HECK YES. Once again Netflix and Marvel are doing something right and I am so excited to see how it turns out - the episodes will all be released at the same time, so binge session anyone?

Catch you next time.

  2. This is such a great one! Love love LOVE that lip sync battle, Ellen and Jimmy Fallon are my FAVORITE! And I definitely agree with that Taylor Swift Wildest Dreams post- they made it out to be something it wasn't.

  22. The Steve Jobs quote takes the cake. It seriously frustrated me that they brought out a stylus, totally lame! I'll stick to my normal iPad for now! But as for the new iPhone, I'm so sure I'll but jumping on that when my upgrade comes next month!
