The holiday season is a perfect time to relax and not get any work done. It’s also a perfect time to fall into the bad habit of procrastinating. “I don’t need to get this done, it’s the holidays.” It’s hard not to think like that, but...Show More Summary
So, you're watching "Supernatural," and you think to yourself, "that doesn't look much like Pennsylvania... or Ohio... or wherever they are this week." Or maybe "Scandal's" Washington D.C. winter looks way too green and warm.That's because TV shows film in one primary location, 99% of the time, no matter what is going on in the story.

Did you like Guardians Of The Galaxy? Of course you did. It was superb. How do you feel about Christmas? Of course you love it. It's amazing. That being said, you'd think that the two colliding together would have produced something better than this rather unflattering sweater then, wouldn't you? Actually, that's a tad harsh.

Hey everyone! Happy thanksgiving (if you are in that part of the world). Being a Seattle native, I like to think of it as game day. Go Hawks! We just wanted to show you some new stuff. As we've mentioned before, we've been working on our first zone. Show More Summary
Sure, the physical size and stretchiness of your stomach has a lot to do with why you probably feel like a turkey-filled Macy's Day balloon right now. But the American Chemical Society's Reactions series wants you to know that a lot of it also has to do with chemicals—and not just the oft-demonized tryptophan, either. Unbutton your pants and join us for some science!
I know you're not thinking about fitting in to a little black New Year's Dress right now (you're probably more all about that second piece of pumpkin pie, right?), but you just need to think about your NYE plans for like 2 seconds right now and book your dress on Rent the Runway because they are having a big sale today.

Have you ever wished you had your own butler, like Bruce Wayne’s Alfred? Most people could use a little bit of help with their housework and chores now and again. But few have the money and resources to hire live-in help like Alfred....Show More Summary
You probably are not thinking of the price of oil as something for which we should give thanks today. But if like most people you are traveling by car, you notice and have been noticing the decreasing price of gasoline. According to the U.S. Show More Summary
"I’m not sure which. You should come to my house and eat cheeses with me. I love you and I lost a tooth last night. I think I would like to do a magic trick for you and then let you watch me battle robots."
While you roll around in a turkey daze, you should probably start thinking about how you are going to run around all weekend without looking like a giant turkey. Your puffers are great and all, but to avoid the Michelin Man vibe, why not try something a bit more chic and just as cozy. Show More Summary
Today, Aunt Jeanette writes: Okay, I have to confess, I am not really the one looking down. I do not like high places. I don’t think I am afraid, but I would rather have my feet on the ground. The one exception is that I love to fly. I am entranced by the view from an airplane window. I would... Read More

To me, this group sounds a bit like Tame Impala, St. Vincent, and Beck all rolled into one. I like all of those artists, so I can definitely get behind that. Although other styles are present in their sound, I think that UMO has done a good job of developing its sound over the past four years. What are you listening to tonight?
