The best summer concert event of all time is of course 98.9's annual Rockfest! This concert features 2 stages with several bands performing on each. Rockfest lasts all day and night long, so when going to this type of event, be prepared. I attend Rockfest every year, no matter who is on the line up. This year I went with my teenage children who were so happy when I logged onto the internet to purchase our tickets and to get more information.
This year at Rockfest, Papa Roach, Halestorm, Rev Theory, Seether, Drowning Pool, Godsmack, and Three Days Grace all performed on the main stage. The concert was absolutely amazing. Seether had a really good performance with their old and new songs. Papa Roach was another favorite of mine. That lead singer Jacoby sure knows how to sing. The boys preferred Three Days Grace, and said that they really knew how to rock.
I went to this concert because I wanted to take my teenage boys to their first concert ever. They had the time of their lives. The grass was so muddy that people were making mudslides and sliding down the hill. By the time the concert was finished, we looked like a bunch of pigs that had been rolling around in the mud. All that matters was that the boys had the time of their lives. I will attend this concert next year; however it is being debated whether or not it will be at Liberty Memorial next time due to the clean up. Either way if you are looking for the concert event of the season, try Rockfest for an amazing time!

The first person that comes to mind whenever I think of comedy, is Dave Chappelle. I have watched almost every outrageous performance he has ever done, and I absolutely love it! I even set my directtv to record it, just in case I cannot get home in time.
Chappelle really pushes the limits with his acts. Every week, he comes out on to the stage, prepared to go that extra mile to make the punch lines better, giving the crowd and the people watching from home what they want. Some people may argue that some of his shows are a bit extreme, but after all, it is marked as adult oriented material. There is even a disclaimer before the show ever begins, informing the audience that adult content may be included.
One of my favorite skits of his, and probably one of the most controversial, is his "Tyrone" character. Tyrone is a crack-head who constantly finds himself in ridiculous situations that would never occur in real life. My favorite Tyrone skit is when he meets the infamous rapper, "Snoop Doggy Dogg."
Snoop is in a musical studio when suddenly Tyrone busts through the door with some musical input of his own. His 'lyrics' consist of tales about his childhood and crack. The response he gets from Snoop, who apparently was unaware of the prank, was priceless.

I've just moved from the country to a large city and talk about culture shock! From living where you can really still leave your doors unlocked to where one of the first calls you make is to your home security provider to ask “Why ADT? “, well, suffice to say it's been quite a change. One thing I was missing that I never even considered before the move was not having my favorite produce stand right down the road.
Then last week I discovered a wonderful thing. The farmers market! It was like my homey little stand multiplied by one hundred. I loved it. Although I had planned ahead and checked out the school systems, investigated the public transit system and lots of other things, I am finding there is still a lot for me to learn about city life.
For one thing, it's the oddest thing but evidently city folk don't automatically wave at everyone who drives down the road. In fact lots of times the cashier at the grocery store doesn't make small talk when I'm in line. You know what though? I'll get used to all that. The availability of all the things a big city has to offer makes it all worthwhile. If I'm on my way to a symphony or a play, I don't have time to be waving at everybody anyway.

Lifetime is my favorite channel on my direct TV coverage package. I love to watch the TV shows and movies on Lifetime. They are entertaining and fun to watch.
Project Runway is one of my favorite series on Lifetime. The new season starts next month. I love to watch the design challenges and predict which design will bomb on the runway. Also, it's fun to predict who will be eliminated in each episode. You never know what the judges will say and do. Sometimes I agree with their decisions, but most of the time I don't.
Another series I watch on Lifetime is Grey's Anatomy. They play re-runs every afternoon Monday thru Friday. Grey's Anatomy is one of my all-time favorite shows. Christina Yang is my favorite character. She's hilarious.
Lifetime is also the channel that hosts Army Wives. I record the show every Sunday night. It's not my favorite show, but it keeps me sufficiently entertained. Most of the plots involve real-life situations rather than the far out plots and vampires featured on other shows and channels.
Most Lifetime movies are very predictable, but I've found several that were good as a source of escapism. I like that many lifetime movies aren't big-budget Hollywood movies. My favorites are the smaller-scaled movies that feature settings that are similar to the small town where I grew up.
