January 2013 Events Image

So between planning this post and actually writing it, up to 12" of snow descended upon Connecticut, so I guess a good New England winter is finally here. What won't be here much longer is the year. We bid goodbye to 2012 tonight and welcome 2013 with celebrations galore.

As the new year starts, much is going on. Here's just some of it:


Justin Bieber: Biebs continues his Believe Tour on January 5, with several dates throughout the month, before heading to Europe.

Other Concerts in January:

  • Lady Gaga brings her Born This Way Ball Tour to North America beginning on January 11.
  • Luke Bryan begins a tour on January 17.
  • Muse begins a tour on January 21.

The three items I'll discuss this week are each huge in their own way. So let's get to it.

Girl Meets World

Yup, you read right. Corey and Topanga are back...and they have a daughter. The new series, which will air on The Disney Channel, will focus on the daughter, Riley. But I don't doubt that we'll see plenty of Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel. Now the question that people seem to be asking is: "What about Feeny?" There's been no word on if William Daniels will appear, but I think he'll show up at some point, even if only for an episode or two.

BCS: Notre Dame vs. ?

One team has been decided, but there is still one game to go before we know who will join Notre Dame in Miami for the BCS Championship game. Tomorrow the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs will face off for the SEC Championship game. Will Alabama get a chance to defend its title or lose their shot to Georgia? If you're itching to see the SEC final, there are still some tickets listed.

Brazilian elevator ghost prank

It's the video that's taken the world by storm this week. With over 24 million views in the last four days, this video shows what appears to be a Brazilian prank show and, well, just watch it. The looks on the victims' faces are hilarious.

That's it for this week. We'll see you back here in December!
