New 'Smurfs 2' trailer shows Smurfette being seduced by the dark side -- VIDEO

In this summer’s Smurfs 2, evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) has come up with the ultimate plan to kidnap the Smurfs – lure them to the dark side, then steal their magic. His master plan involves making Smurf-like creature whose shape and size are comparable to the little blue guys… but their habits are quite different. Meet: the Naughties.

Look out, the Naughties have streaked hair, torture cats, and they burp without excusing themselves. But their worst offense is that they kidnap Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) and convince her that their particular brand of fun is her cup of tea. Check out the hijinks (including Brendan Gleeson being turned into a duck) in the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 2013: Your slime recap!

Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart, One Direction, The Hunger Games, Selena Gomez, Victorious, and Katy Perry were all winners at last night’s Kids’ Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. But that’s not why you were watching, was it? When it comes to the KCA, it’s all about the slime. We were promised a Slime Dunk, a Mega-Slime, and more — and Nick, along with host Josh Duhamel in an array of silly costumes, mostly delivered. EW.com social media goddess Nika Vagner and I Vine-capped the whole affair on EW’s Twitter. Below we present, uninterrupted, all the squishy, icky, green-and-gooey goodness. (UPDATE: Check out the full winner’s list.)


The Compromise: About those post-kids music tastes...

Krissy Mac has three kids ages 6, 3 1/2, and 1 1/2. If she did a tequila shot for every time she said “No,” “Stop” or “Why isn’t anyone listening to me?” she’d be one happy lady. Instead, she spends her days trying to avoid meltdowns–her own.  She writes about the completely uncontrolled chaos that is her life at www.whoneedsanap.me.

I would love to be able to tell you something super cool about myself like “I started listening to Led Zeppelin when I was 2 years old,” or “When the other 12-year-old girls had posters of the Coreys (the 80s…some of you remember. The rest of you… Google it), I had one of Bob Dylan.”

Unfortunately, those would be lies.

This is more than a bit embarrassing but… my very first musical purchase was a record called Original TV Soundtrack: The Jetsons. It included the greatest hit, “Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah” which made it well-worth the $6.99 that I spent on it.

There are other vague memories of music standouts throughout my childhood. I remember hearing the Styx album come out of my brother’s bedroom when I was eight. And listening to the Steve Miller Band in high school, while driving down to the Jersey Shore (this was pre-Snooki, but unfortunately not pre-Aqua Net). Once there, the Pretty in Pink soundtrack played on repeat. High school mix tapes included U2, Madonna, Sting, Peter Gabriel and it was Jersey, so of course, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen were on the playlists, long before they were ever called playlists.

Then I went to college and my horizons expanded a bit more into classic rock including Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones and the Grateful Dead. And it was 1993 when I first heard Phish. And started going to Phish shows. (Many, many Phish shows, but that’s another post entirely.)

In my most recent years, I have settled on a non-offensive mix of what some call adult alternative, classic rock, and jam band.

But in those same years, I have also had three kids. You can see where this is going, right? READ FULL STORY
