PCNews Roundup

Submitted by on January 28, 2011 – 11:27 pm 10 Comments

You know something’s off when I don’t have time to read and react to Oscar nominations. The Academy Awards are my Super Bowl, my Olympics, my…oh, you get the idea. But I was buried under a couple of deadlines so am playing catch-up. There’s no point going over the nominations now but I did a create a slide show below of some other pop culture happenings this week.

First, I want to mention a couple things. Check out the new PCN header at the top of the page! In case you can’t make it out, that’s a nerdy ninja girl carrying a sack of her favorite tools—books, TV and movie clapboard. Katie at KD Designs created it, giving me exactly what I wanted. If you’re looking for someone to do graphics for your blog, bookmarks, business cards, etc., definitely check her out. You can’t beat her prices or fast turnaround. And no, I’m not saying this because she’s a friend, family member, or someone who paid me. I just found her on the web and am grateful for her work.

I also started a PCN Facebook page so if you’re interested in hanging out with me there, click here or on the button in the sidebar. Even though I didn’t have time to really blog this week, I was still tweeting pop culture tidbits and connecting with my cyber pals because tweets only take seconds to send. It occurred to me that many of you aren’t on Twitter so I created the FB page in case you’re interested in keeping up with my pop culture updates. But this is NOT a hard sell; I’m not suggesting you “Like” my page because I hate when people send me those suggestions. I’m simply making you aware of the page. I’d be as happy with two “Like”s as I would be with 100 because I love intimate parties.

But enough of the yada yada. Enjoy the slide show. I’ll be rehashing the SAG Awards on Sunday and should be back to normal next week with reviews, a video, and a giveaway.

And in case you missed it, here’s the video of Lauren Alaina’s audition on American Idol, after which Steven Tyler thought she might be “the one.” Do you agree?

What are you watching/reading this weekend? Hope you’re having a good one!
