View Comments(0)


Remember “MmmBop”? Or maybe you do but you wish you didn’t? Whatever, Hanson is back, and it’s April 2 so you know I’m not joking.

The thing is, for Hanson fans, the band never left, as they’ve been releasing albums and touring since their “MmmBop” fame.They have ten albums under their belt, eleven tours, and this year marks their 21 year anniversary. Pretty impressive.

Yesterday, the band members announced they will be releasing another record, “Anthem,” on June 18, followed by a tour, which kicks off in June. Tickets will likely be available over the next few days, so keep checking back. Until then, if “MmmBop” was the last Hanson song you heard, there’s a lot of catching up to do. Or you can check out this Taylor Swift cover they recently did, because why not?

Athletes who have come back from career ending injuries


The following is a guest article by Annabelle.


Last season the NFL made fans, players, and medical experts redefine what is meant by the words "career ending injury." The top two MVP finalists, Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson, were both returning from injuries many considered would significantly cripple or even end their respective careers. Manning had undergone multiple neck operations, while Peterson tore both his ACL and MCL, both injuries that once spelled doom for playmakers at their positions. But, not only did both Peterson and Manning return, but both were unquestionably the best players at their respective positions in 2012, with Peterson coming within ten yards of the all time rushing record and winning the prestigious league MVP. The examples of Manning and Peterson may seem insignificant, outliers in the vast scope of the NFL, but when we also consider the returns of Terrell Suggs, Ray Lewis and Jamal Charles, or the continued play of Robert Griffin III, we have to consider the question: What has caused this dramatic shift in the landscape of injuries in the NFL?


Justin Timberlake plans solo tour for fall 2013


Justin Timberlake is pretty much on fire after selling nearly 1 million records his first week (almost unheard of these days) and planning what’s arguably one of the biggest tours of the summer with Jay-Z.

On the heels of his latest single, "Mirrors," he announced that following the Legends of Summer tour, he’ll head back out on the road, sans Jay-Z, for a fall tour.

His manager said, "Yeah. Probably he’ll go out sometime in the fall. We haven’t routed that yet or figured out what cities we’re going to play. I know we’ll start in North America first. But again, our focus is getting the album out and getting the Jay/Justin piece done. And I would say sometime in April/May we’ll announce when Justin is going to put his own solo tour out."

I take that "probably" and argue it's a "needs to happen, and likely will." I should totally be his manager.
