  • Big Time Rush: Behind the Scenes

    Posted on 11/20/2011 by Lisa

    Are you watching the Big Time Rush marathon on TeenNick today? The new Big Time Rush album comes out tomorrow, 11/21 -- pre-order it on iTunes.

    In the meantime, here's a behind-the-scenes video of BTR's acoustic performance at a radio station:

    And here's a cool pic my photographer friend, Shawn Corrigan, took while he was on tour with Big Time Rush.

    Don't miss the new Big Time Rush special, Music Sounds Better with U, tonight at 7:30 pm et on TeenNick!

  • Hey, Big Time Rush fans!

    The new Big Time Rush album Elevate comes out Monday 11/21, but you can pre-order it now on iTunes.

    In the meantime, here's their new video, "Music Sounds Better with U"

    It makes me want a swing chair for my apartment. (My aunt had one just like that in her basement when I was little, and it was the best thing about visiting her house.)

    If you ever run into a bunch of guys in a dark alley, I hope they turn out to be Big Time Rush.

  • House of Anubis: Who's the Snoggable-est?

    Posted on 10/01/2011 by Lisa

    I'm an Anubis newbie (I'm Anubie, haha!). I just started watching the show this week. Now I keep hoping I'll meet a cool old lady on the street and she'll give me a necklace with special powers.

    Today, I'd like to present a few Anubis cuties for your approval:

    Fabian from House of Anubis
    Fabian (played by Brad Kavanagh)

    Alfie from House of Anubis
    Alfie (played by Alex Sawyer)

    Mick from House of Anubis
    Mick (played by Bobby Lockwood)

    Hearing their British accents reminded me of this quiz Mary wrote a while back called What's Your Snogging Style? If you want to know what it'd be like to make out with one of those guys, go take the quiz!

    Whether you've seen the show yet or not, which of these guys do you consider the snoggable-est?

  • That one time Jake fed Eli a pear.

    So, in this video, Munro Chambers tells us all about his real-life Now or Never moment -- a moment that decided whether or not we would ever see him on Degrassi! -- and then Justin Kelly feeds him a pear.

    You should probably definitely watch it.

    And don't forget! After tonight's Degrassi: Now or Never finale, you only have a few days to catch up on all of the full episodes in HD right here. Because after Labor Day (which, by the way, will also be a 9a to midnight et Degrassi: Now or Never marathon), the full archive comes down.

    So do your eye stretches, get settled, and hit play.

  • Sweet Merciful Crap: It's Mr. Simpson

    Posted on 05/13/2011 by Mary

    We found this old picture of Archie "Snake" Simpson -- aka Principal Simpson, aka Degrassi director and producer Stefan Brogren -- as a teenager. (Those who don't know... he was on the Super Old School '80s version of Degrassi.)

    Um, we hope he forgives us?

  • Degrassi: Everybody Loves Zane

    Posted on 03/13/2011 by Mary

    Over on the boards, eliisagod asks:

    "Is there anyone that hates Zane? Because I simply can't think of any reason why someone would."

    I can't either, eliisagod. But it'll be interesting to see if anyone comes up with anything...

  • The 12 Boys of Degrassi: Wesley!

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    It's Day 3 of the Degrassi Boys celebration, time to celebrate...

    ♥Wesley♥!

    Anya described Wesley as "the type of guy that girls love." He's super-sweet, he's not fake, and if you win him at a bachelor auction, he'll save up his allowance till he can afford to rent a limo for your date. He's THAT nice.

    My favorite things about Wesley are that he's a really good friend (I still can't believe he forgave Dave after the taser incident) and he's really funny. Exhibit A: His election-themed rap:

    I love this Wesley quote from when Drew's trying to teach him about girls:

    Drew: "If you wanna impress Anya so she'll bid on you at the bachelor auction you're gonna need one thing."
    Wesley: "A bowtie!"

    What are your favorite Wesley moments, quotes, or election-themed rap lyrics? Post them in the comments. And check out our full Wesley Playlist for more chuckle-worthy and cringe-worthy Wesley videos.

    Oh, Wesley. You are proof that a boy can be awkward and awesome at the same time.

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    Day 2 of our celebration of the spirit of Degrassi Boys brings us....

    ♥Peter♥!

    Though he first came into our lives as the spoiled son-of-a-principal who showed everyone Manny's boobs and was preeetty much responsible for Sean going to jail, Peter has redeemed himself in fits and starts over the years. There was that time he emotionally supported Darcy through the aftermath of her rape, the way he was there for Emma when she struggled with an eating disorder... and of course, what one could argue was his most impressive act of selflessness: standing by Riley and keeping a secret after Riley misunderstood their friendship and tried to kiss him.

    Plus there was that whole thing where he met his little sister and kissed her little baby head:

    Look at him kiss that baby's head! He's such a sweet little baby-head-kisser! It's not fair that Peter kept losing girlfriends to other continents (and meth habits), but it's always nice to see him looking so contented and sage-like behind the counter at the Dot.

    What was your favorite Peter moment, quote, or button-down shirt? Drop it in the comments! And you can also check out our full Peter Playlist with a bounty of Peter-y episodes and clips. Enjoy!

  • The 12 Boys of Degrassi: Spinner!

    Posted on 12/13/2010 by Mary

    'Tis the season! Whatever holiday(s) are on your mind right now, we're adding one to the list: the joyful, boytastic, and utterly non-denominational celebration of Degrassi Manhood that is...

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    Every day for the next 12 days we'll be rhapsodizing about the specimens of Degrassi boyhood who made 2010 shine so brightly.

    Our first Boy of Degrassi is... ♥Spinner♥.

    In his own special, Spinner-y way, he's been an embodiment of what Degrassi is about. Remember when he was a homophobe... but learned to get over it for Marco's sake? The time he battled cancer and won? And all those times he messed up, but sought and found the forgiveness of his friends?

    And of course we mustn't forget his "health food" boners; his hair (and his other hair, and his other other hair); the way he said "She used me for my body"; ... and of course, that time he married Emma (!). What have been your favorite Spinner moments/quotes/storylines? Drop them in the comments... let's have a Spinner party!

    We leave you with this classic Spinner scene -- classic because it involves his charming candidness, an oh-so-Spinner reference to his junkular area, and a demonstration of that hard-won best buds forever bromance with Jimmy that always touched our hearts.

    Also, the part where he flexes those guns doesn't suck.

    Enjoy more Spinner-vision in our 12 Boys of Degrassi: Spinner playlist... chock full of Spinner moments and full episodes from the highlights of his tenure.

    Keep calm though, because excitement makes him fart.
