I have been finding so many interesting things on the internet recently that I pretty much want to blog everything! I’d do that, but then you’d get 20 posts in one day and who has time for that? Very rarely has anyone watched me actually blog and even then I think it’s such a weird process. Maybe we can include that on the video blogs someday, Veronica? Anyways, today we’re already at 10 posts and I must confess to you all, I’ve got some blog projects I need to hit tonight! [More on that later] So laziness is about to occur and you’re gonna get a roundup of some of the best things that I came across on the internet today in one post!

4. Want to know all of the songs that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are rapping in their “History of Raps?” SPIN has got you covered. I am adding these to my Spotify playlists as we speak.
5. Mariners’ game attendees this season are going to dine well. [Source]
6. I took the Bring It On quiz and scored 10/12. Not bad!
7. Steve Buscemi will direct Vampire Weekend’s live stream. That’s a collaboration we didn’t see coming! [Source]
8. View a slideshow of Seattle’s notable empty buildings. My favorite is where Amazon used to live. [Source]

Last night Natina Reed of the girl group Blaque was killed in a hit-and-run accident as she was walking across the street in Atlanta, Georgia. Blaque was one of my favorite groups growing up and even had key roles in the cheerleading flick “Bring It On.” The girl group was said to be on the verge of making a comeback. Natina was 32 years old.

The summer premiere begins at 8PM and I cannot wait! And to prepare myself, I am holed up in one place watching the marathon until then. To celebrate the premiere, this post is dedicated to the lovely Pretty Little Liars and what they all were doing before they were cast in the hit show.
First off, today is Lucy Hale’s 22nd birthday! Before she was cast as the hip and artsy Aria, Lucy was dating Wizards of Waverly Place star David Henrie. She was also in the canceled show Privileged, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and performed as a young pre-teen on American Juniors.
Troian didn’t have too many notable roles before Pretty Little Liars, but she was in Billboard Dad with the Olsen twins!
Before Pretty Little Liars, I used to get Ashley Benson mixed up with Taylor Momsen – these days that won’t be a problem. Ashley played a mean girl in Lifetime’s Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal and a nice girl in one of the Bring It On movies, but I prefer her as the HBIC.
Shay Mitchell first breakout role was being cast as Emily Fields on Pretty Little Liars. There aren’t too many pictures of her from back in the day, but she has had a complete transformation since her first days on the set and is now a spokesperson for a line by Pantene.

I wasn’t alive in the 80’s, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know about Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink.
They were classics! Everyone loved them and everyone still loves them to this day.
From the time I was born up until… 2000, teenage hit movies were all the rage. They were funny, refreshing, and most of the time true. I didn’t know that yet because I was still probably eight and hadn’t lived through high school. Also, the actors and actresses in these movies sometimes overlapped and I swear, these kids all did the same movies together.
- Can’t Hardly Wait
- She’s All That
- Bring It On
- Cruel Intentions
- Never Been Kissed
- 10 Things I Hate About You
- American Pie
These had to be some of my favorite movies. A decade has passed and I want to know where they went. We had Mean Girls, yes, but that’s where it began and ended. Now that I’m ten years older, I wonder if I would still love these movies as much if they were to resurface again. Maybe it will just remain a part of my childhood.
So which was your favorite?
