How many TV shows can you name in two minutes?

…I dare you, Bits and Bramblers. In fact, I double dare you. All you have to do is go here, and type as many TV shows as you can in two minutes.

As you can see, I could think of 46 TV shows in two minutes, which is equal parts impressive and sad. But here’s the question…do you think you can beat my number? Like I said, I dare you. Double dare. Triple even.

In fact, I’ll even give you a hint…think of all the TV shows that have one word titles, like Lost, House, and Chuck—not only are they super easy to type—you can type them that much faster. See, not only did I give you a hint? I gave you a head start.

So you’ve already got a grand total of three…start naming shows! And let us know how you did in the comments (especially if you beat my impressively sad total of 46!)



<3 Happy Valentine’s Day! <3


Happy (Early) Valentine’s Day, Bits and Bramblers!

Now, maybe Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing (and if it’s not, I totally understand. I mean, it seems like you can’t escape those horrible Cupid decorations, and let’s not even talk about those horrible conversation hearts. And the overly gooey romantic TV shows that seem to pop up all over the place this time of year. Really. Who has the time?
But then again…there’s always time for chocolate, right? Especially fancy chocolates in heart-shaped boxes. And come on…it won’t kill you to embrace the romantic goo for just a few minutes, right?

I mean, it only takes two minutes for Chuck and Sarah to unsuccessfully dismantle a bomb…


…And it only takes two minutes for Ted and Stella from How I Met Your Mother to go on a romantic date…


And The Office’s Jim doesn’t even need a full minute to come up with an impromptu romantic proposal for Pam


Now, if you’re a fan of Valentine’s Day, feel free to watch those clips as many times as you want. And if you’re not a Valentine’s person, you might have a disgusting taste in your mouth (you know…because of all the romantic goo.) But you know what’s good at getting rid of that? More chocolate.

HAPPY (early) VALENTINE’S DAY, BITS AND BRAMBLERS!!!!



“The Day The Music Died.”


 
Today’s one of those not-so-happy days in music history, Bits and Bramblers. See, fifty years ago today, three of the world’s biggest rock and roll stars—Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. Richardson ( aka “The Big Bopper”)—were killed in a plane crash.

It’s hard to imagine something so tragic…I mean, the three of them were sort of pioneers of rock and roll music, and some of the first real rock stars ever. That’s probably why Don McLean dubbed it “The Day the Music Died.” Because it was such a huge loss, and it left their fans feeling so…hopeless.

But if there’s anything positive about something so tragic, it’s the fact that fifty years after the accident, we’re still listening to their music (which, by the way, is made of awesome.) There have been movies made about the lives of Buddy Holly and Richie Valens, and all three musicians have influenced thousands of others—everyone from The Beatles to Weezer.

And just in case you didn’t know? Don McLean wrote American Pie all about his favorite musicians. So…you could say that Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and The Big Bopper also influenced The Jonas Brothers.

See for yourself..and feel free to sing along!
