October 2013 Events Image

It's a pretty great time of the year for sports, concerts, and theater, given that each category has a plethora of events to choose from.

On top of that, NBA has its pre-season while MLB heads into its postseason, and several shows — including one about legendary musician Janis Joplin — open on Broadway.

What People Are Talking About

This week, Batman will make his triumphant return as a kid from Bahston; 'NSync is messing with us; and Allen Iverson is ready to retire.

Ben Affleck is Batman

The internet has lots of opinions, and the no one can decide if Ben Affleck as Batman is the best or worst decision DC has made for its upcoming "Superman" sequel. All we know is we have a lot of feelings. Some are arguing that Ben Affleck as Batman is a horrible, awful, rotten, no-good choice — likely in part because Ben Affleck is known as a less-than-fantastic actor. On other parts of the internet, however, some are saying Ben as Batman is actually an excellent choice. He likes comics, he recently did well critically with "Argo," and similar hoopla surrounded Heath Ledger when he was cast as The Joker, which turned out to be one of the most well-acted roles of all time. So the jury's out, but it's still fun to fight about it. Let's keep in mind that Ben Affleck was in "Daredevil"... and we all know how that ended up.

What People Are Talking About

This week, I almost wrote about Lauren Conrad's new book coming out, but no one is talking about that except... well, me. And Lauren Conrad. So instead, let's discuss an 11-year-old's awesome National Anthem rendition, Kanye West's impeccable interview skills, and the return of HBO's "True Blood" for its season 6 premiere.

NBA Finals National Anthem

11-year-old Sebastien De La Cruz's performed the National Anthem at game 3 of the NBA Finals earlier this week. People immediately took to Twitter, angry that Cruz was the one selected to sing the National Anthem because apparently he didn't look "American" enough, whatever that means. Thankfully, those people were in the minority, and many rallied behind Sebastien not only because it's the right thing to do, but because his performance was awesome. Sebastien was invited back to sing at Game 4 of the finals — with an introduction by San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and his wife. Kudos to Sebastien for taking it all in stride. Also, how cute is his mariachi outfit?

June 2013 Events Image

Here in Connecticut, we can tell it's almost June because we're practically melting. After all, the general rule of thumb for New England weather is that if you're not shoveling your way out of several feet of snow, then you're probably baking in the sun.

That said, summer is totally the best time for events! Summer tours, sporting events, musical festivals, touring theater shows... it's a mecca, really. Here are a few things to look forward to in June.
