Dancin’ on Air! Plus a reason to watch TeenNick.
Ahh, Saturday! It’s been a long week for me. I returned this week from a visit home to Pennsylvania, sat down at my computer to get back to work and suddenly lost internet service…and my home phone…and (gasp!) my cable. Turns out, my neighbors are moving and the cable company came out and disconnected our service by accident! Whoops.
After a few days and many phone calls to our cable company, it’s all fixed. And not a moment too soon – there’s some good stuff I need to share with you guys this week! Starting with our Video of the Week.
If we may backtrack a moment – upon my arrival in Philadelphia I was picked up by my Mom and sister and whisked off to lunch. No sooner had we been seated then Susan turned to me and said “Did you hear they ran a ‘Dancin’ on Air’ marathon on TV?”
Sisters. They know to lead with the really important things! If you are not familiar with this Philadelphia based 80s era dance show, the above video will give you a taste of its charms.

• If you’re a child of the 90s, I’ve got something for you too. Did you know Teennick is now rerunning classic Nickelodeon shows “Kenan & Kel” and “All That” plus the cartoon “Doug” and even (yay!) “Clarissa Explains It All”! Get all the details here: The 90s Are All That
• And if you’re curious about current teen crazes, how about some Hunger Games news? On the return trip home I devoured the latest EW with a cover and new images from the set featuring leads Liam Hemsworth (Gale) and Josh Hutcherson (Peeta). I’m a bit mixed on my response: Peeta’s so bulky and Gale’s just…off. But I’ve got faith the movie will work out! See the pics: EW – The Hunger Games Central
• Finally, have you seen the video for New Romance from the actor/musician Miles Fisher? With the help of his Final Destination 5 cast mates, this clip pays homage to cheese fest Saved By The Bell in the best way possible ~ killing off all the characters in gory, yet campy style!
