Those Little Rodents

Today was my day off so I decided to head to the movies with my little brothers. They wanted to see the third installment of the Chipmunks.

It was funny...I laughed right along with the kids in the movie theater. It has a lot of pop music references that maybe some of the kids wont get, but the parents (older brothers) will love!

If you have to take a younger person to the movies, this is one to put on your list!

Bellamy Brothers #TwitterView

I had the pleasure of meeting this country group a few months ago when they came into the studio and did an interview for my TV Show. We put their music videos into our rotation and our fans absolutely loved them. I started doing these #TwitterViews and I knew that I had to get these entertaining gentlemen to do it!

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1

After work today, I went to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1,
It was okay. It started out a little slow for my taste but it had some great action scenes in it. It was funny that Jacob had his shirt off in the first 4 seconds of the movie. If you have already seen it, did you notice all of the little Easter Eggs in the movie? The Chess Board (Book Cover Reference) When Bella said she was going to put Jacob's face on a milk carton (Abduction Reference)

One thing that really kind of disturbed me was seeing Bella literally waste away due to the Fetus/Baby feeding off of her.

Final Thought....GO see the movie, it's worth the ticket price, if you have never seen the other films, I highly suggest you watch them first, just to be familiar with the story line.

Disclaimer: I have purposely not read the books, I did/do not want to know what happens when I go to see the movie....the only problem is, everyone I know has read the books and they insist on telling me what happens!

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@TeeJayToday) and Foursquare ( to find out when and where I am and what I am doing!

Movie Review

Yay! It's Christmas Time! I love the holidays and being able to go see Christmas movies at the theaters is a tradition of mine. I am normally a really happy person, but when the holidays get I get even MORE happier and other people usually get sick of me after a few minutes of being so HAPPY!

I recently took my little brother to see Arthur Christmas in 3D...he went because his Idol (Justin Bieber) has a music video that plays before the movie starts...but when that is over, the movie begins. It has the typical story lines of scrooges and that one person that always has the Christmas Spirit that shows the others the way. I liked all of the comedy aspects of the movie, the grumpy grandpa, the techie older brother (Me) the forgetful father, the loving mother, the proud elf. It is a must watch movie... It also does a good job of telling everyone how Santa is able to deliver all of the presents in one night. It has some sweet father/son interactions too. The theaters are going to be full this year, especially with the new Twilight out, so maybe you should choose Arthur Christmas instead, you will be happy that you did!
