We Love Bands With Accents!

There's something about those dreamy musicians with those cute little accents. Ever since the Beatles invaded the American scene, we've been craving the latest foreign musical phenomenon. Do you ever wonder why Justin Bieber's so popular? 'Cause he's small and cuddly? No! It's because he's Canadian! Somehow, those foreigners know exactly what we want to hear and they always deliver.

The Must-haves for a Middle Schools Dance

Ah, middle school dances. Remember those? Middle school was a time filled with girls who like boys but are taller than them and boys who like girls but are suffering through that awkward I might-be-going-through-puberty-soon stage.
