While many of us love the HBO show True Blood and the books written by Charlaine Harris, no one else can say it like Snoop Dogg.

While the video might not be to everyone's tastes, it is sure to make any true fan cheer. I don't know about you, but I'd take a gin and juice at Merlotte's!

This melodic trio from Durham, North Carolina is best known for their raw sound and literary lyrics. Highly prolific, they have released 17 studio albums since 1991.

Good news for the opera-lover.... Encore showings of The Met's most popular HD broadcasts will be repeated this summer at select theaters beginning June 16 in the US and Canada.

I am overjoyed to find this out because I missed most of this past season's broadcasts.  In case you didn't know, The Metropolitan Opera brodcasts Live in HD performances at theaters around the world. I saw the opera Hamlet,  my first HD (high definition) broadcast,  at the Belmar theater last March. I was wowed from the start.

*WOW!*  No Seats!  First of all, we got there an hour beforehand and almost didn't find seats together for the three of us. It was that full! (*hint* get there early!)
