What “30 Rock” Meant to Me

MaryPop Culture2 Comments


If you were a fan of 30 Rock, you know that last Thursday the series came to an end. For good. And while I know that it was time for the show to leave, I’m still sad that it won’t be on any more. You see, the show and Liz Lemon meant a lot to me.

Tina Fey is a “Bossypants”

Crystal ColemanBooks12 Comments


Read as an autobiography or memoir, Bossypants probably isn”™t very compelling.

The new Dreamworks animated film Megamind opened this past weekend, and encouraged by the delightfulness that was last year’s Monsters vs. Aliens, I decided to check it out. It turned out to be pretty enjoyable, sort of a Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog for the kid set. My review and a couple of mild spoilers below the jump.
