The Bee’s Knees – Hanson Plays Halifax

1 May

Just a days ago my long time friend Ben Boudreau (@yelphalifax / @Bboudreau) Tweeted me the best news I’ve been tweeted in a seriously long time, if not ever.

Hanson. Is coming. To Halifax.

When I moved to Nova Scotia in Grade 5 I recall a girl in my class with an orange CD that she’d bring to class. This was of course Hanson’s breakout album “Middle of Nowhere” that the smash hit “Mmmbop” came from. Then I remember hanging out at my older cousins that summer and they introduced me to the Much Music Countdown. Were they boys? Were they girls? Who cared. I was obsessed.

After a hugely successful Christmas album called “Snowed In” Hanson fell off the radar and quickly reemerged with “This Time Around” in 2000.

Then, my favourite Hanson album came out in 2004. Underneath. If you were to look at my iPod right now you would find about 5 different versions of “Penny & Me”. I listened to this album on repeat for almost an entire flight across Canada one time. I was angsty. I had a lot of emotions. (The way back I believe had me listening to Snow Patrol on repeat – surely whoever sat next to me on that flight dealt with a crying hot mess.)

I digress. I obviously don’t need to regurgitate Hanson’s discography to you, but it is INCREDIBLY important to note that HANSON IS COMING TO HALIFAX. This is not only important because finally I will get to see these boys that I loved so very much as a teeny bopper, but I will be one degree of separation closer to Gossip Girl. WTF you say? Well, Hanson had a track in the season Premiere of Gossip Girl last year. If they’re relevant enough for Gossip Girl they’re relevant enough for me.

So now begins my quest. Can I get Hanson to do a “Bee’s Knee’s” segment for This Needs to Stop? I’m sure as hell going to try my hardest.


Gossip Girl Flow Chart Time

20 Feb

**Spoiler Alert!** This episode of the RA discusses feminine hygiene products. That being said, I suggest you tune in to be sure you aren’t getting the wool pulled over your eyes by the female in your life who appears to have a particulary active…flow. You were warned.

As if you didn’t already know the cast of Gossip Girl is extremely incestuous. Viewers of The Reacharound were having a tough time keeping up so to keep the viewers happy, we took some time out of our busy Saturday to sit down and plot out exactly what has gone down thus far.

We also explore the confusing jargon surrounding the legal world, who is coming back to the show next week, and who will be the next one to add another complicated line to the flow chart.

Yours in gossip,

The RA

Two Hours Traffic takes over The Office

3 Feb

Just a friendly reminder to all TNTs readers that you should tune into tonight’s episode of The Office, not just for the laughs but to catch some sweet THT tunes. Word on the street is that tonight’s episode will feature “Better sorry than safe”, very exciting stuff, but THT is no stranger to this sort of thing, having been featured on the OC (back when it was in its hay day) and on Gossip Girl! So make sure to watch(and listen) – turn up the tv really loud and be on the listen for this song.

Gossip Girl Returns!!

Spotted. The cast of the blog formerly known as The Reacharound gathered on the couch once again. Looks like someone’s had a facelift…

The lovely other halves of The Reacharound joined us in studio to spread some holiday cheer, give us juicy gossip on Lily Bass and provide their thoughts on marriage.

We also address where all the hot girls will be. Where you ask? Better watch to find out.

Slumber Party! Who who who is the special guest?

29 Nov

Reacharound Episode 6 from Joel Kelly on Vimeo.

Spotted. The girls from The Reacharound having a pyjama party. Matters up for discussion. Does Amy have more to do with Gossip Girl then we think? Does Sarah have an abundance of experience with hookers in bus stations? And does Sylvia have a secret she needs to share with the group?

Looks like this slumber party is about to get exciting.

Just around the riverbend…

The Reacharound – Episode 3 from Joel Kelly on Vimeo.

Spotted. Holes in the stories from The Upper East Side. The gang from The Reacharound is on the case. Who is Juliette and why is her brother in jail, but able to use the phone so very often? Where does he keep his quarters? Are there such things as free pay phones?

Serena continues to get scammed by Juliette but no one seems to catch on. Likely because they’re too busy getting tested for STD’s all over campus.

The RA kids pick out the best and worst dressed, who Sarah wants to be for Halloween, who pulled a Vivian Banks, and a special plea to Vanessa.
