Last night, I was lucky enough to have, literally, a front row seat to a concert by the jazz group Jon Batiste and Stay Human. I’m not sure how that happened to little old me, but I’m sure glad it did. The concert was amaaaaazing and it was being filmed for PBS, so you’ll all get to enjoy it sometime soon.

It’s amazing how humans (and robots, apparently) can say things without actually speaking the words. Keep reading »
I’m so excited to see the new Pixar film, Wall-E, so it better not disappoint. That would be like having a crush on someone, and then finding out they’re not half as cool as you thought they were. I have a huge crush on Wall-E. [Wall-E Trailer] Keep reading »
