There’s so much to talk about here

high school social dynamics…so ridiculous, so useless… yet so pervasive.

There it is.

Debbie Allen’s “The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker” Wins 7th Annual Goldstar National Award

Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, which competed with nearly 60 other Nutcracker productions across the country, will receive a cash prize to benefit the organization’s educational programs, and bragging rights since it was declared ‘the best-loved Nutcracker in the U.S.’ This is another win for the Debbie Allen Dance Academy who took home The Nutty in 2010 as well.

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, starred Debbie Allen and Carlo Imperato, but also included Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-giang Thi Nguyen, James Ingram and Thump as part of the creative team. 

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Previous winners of “The Nutty” Statuette include: The Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2011 and 2012; Debbie Allen Dance Academy, The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker in 2010; Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2009; The Kirov Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2008; and The House Theater of Chicago’sThe Nutcracker at the Steppenwolf Theatre in 2007.

I wanna go!!


how does one see this?



How have you been a fan of P!nk, purchased her albums, and think this is a “new” sound?

  • Interviewer: Pink, you’re singing in tones that fans aren’t accustomed to hearing from you. Were you worried about alienating them?
  • P!nk: I don’t think about that stuff ever, ever. My fans are people that would follow me wherever I go. If I told them I was doing a f—ing jewelry line or a perfume, they’d go, “Come on!” But this feels like something I’d do anyway. Whether it’s Germany or Australia or Canada or South Africa or the U.S., they just want to feel something along with me.




Okay guys this is kinda important. GQ just came in the mail and for the first time in a long while it had a really important article…

I just sat here for like the last half hour reading this and I’m incredibly appalled at our justice system in regards to the military. The article interviews about 23 men who have all been sexually assaulted in some branch of the military. The PTSD from sexual assault in the military is more prevalent than PTSD from combat…

If you have a chance I suggest reading this article…and the title is a quote that one of the victims Doctor told him…

Hey guys! I’m very impressed and extremely happy to see this post gaining a lot of speed over the last few days! A few people have requested it, so i’ve gone ahead and scanned the pages of the article for those who want to read it, to read. 

So, here it is!

They released an online version of this article on their website a while back too. I think I cross-posted it to Facebook.




A few highlights from what has been called one of the worst interviews in recent history.

Good lord.
