I was looking through the photos that go with this week's Dance Academy episodes, and I realized that two of them have something silly in common. Usually the episode photos include lots of beautiful dancing shots but this week, I also found these:
In this picture from "Growing Pains," Sammy is holding up a dance belt, even though he reaally-eally doesn't want to buy one. (Christian looks so happy to be there, doesn't he?
In this pic from "Heartbeat" (which airs tonight at 7:30pm et), Kat reacts to the short shorts she's expected to wear to dance in a music video.
I guess life as a dancer isn't always pretty?

We posted a bunch of sneak peek pics from "Can't Tell Me Nothing, pt. 2," but this one is my favorite, without a doubt.
I love Tristan and Tori, and I love their "half-hearted" pose. I also love that Tori wears capri-length khakis. Even in dress code, she's the definition of adorbs!

You guys seemed pretty psyched about the Degrassi pictures I posted last week, so here are a few more...
THIS is how Marisol dresses to hang out in the woods? I hope she's wearing bug spray.
At least Alli brought an air mattress. (Is every air mattress ever made that army green color? I'd rather have a pink one.)
I'm proud of Katie for wearing mismatched clothes and her hair in braids. This is how you dress for the woods, Marisol!
If this were a horror movie, that cooler would be full of body parts!!! Just sayin'.
What are you doing on Friday? Because I heard there's a party going on at Jake's cabin... Degrassi: Nowhere to Run. TeenNick. Friday. 9pm et.
p.s. Have you seen this Nowhere to Run flipbook? It's got even MORE photos!

Sometimes for work, I have to look through lots of pictures and pick out the cutest ones.
I found some VERY cute pictures of Aislinn Paul (Clare), Luke Bilyk (Drew), Alicia Josipovic (Bianca) and Munro Chambers (Eli) on the set of Nowhere to Run. Here they are, nice and big.
If Clare's mom marries the cabin's owner, does that mean Clare and the cabin can't date?
Drew looks happy to be at the cabin... at least while it's light out.
If I had a cabin, I would totally let Bianca visit. (I bet she could protect me from the bears.)
When you're in the country, it's important to always have a farm animal on your shirt. Right, Eli?
See all that cuteness in action next Friday! Degrassi: Nowhere to Run is coming to TeenNick, Friday, Nov. 18 at 9pm et.

Want to see some pictures from Degrassi's graduation? Here you go. (Possible visual spoilers if you haven't seen "Take a Bow, Pt. 2" yet.)
Holly J, you've come so far.
Anya and Riley, please stay friends forever.
Anya, Chantay, and Holly J -- thanks for the memories and the handprints.
Zane, it's so sad to see you go.
Sav, Chantay, and Holly J, please come back and visit!
I love this pic. Thank you ALL for everything you brought to Degrassi. *tears up*

Don't read any further unless you've already seen "Dirt Off Your Shoulder, Pt. 2."
I sometimes take notes as I watch Degrassi to keep track of the things I want to write about, and the main note from tonight's ep (aside from a few things about Eli and Imogen) was the word ZILEY written in giant letters. Giant sad letters.
I can't bring myself to rewatch that scene at the Dot. I'm tearing up just thinking about it. Ziley (or Rane, whatever you want to call them) are one of my all-time favorite Degrassi couples. I'm still using the present tense, because I'm not ready to accept that they're over. ...and now I'm tearing up as I type. Seriously. I'm a sad little blogger tonight, so instead of writing a thoughtful post about the whole episode, I'm going to post a bunch of pictures of Ziley in happier times.
Zane (aww, look at his messy hair) and Riley.
Ziley makes me sigh-ly.
Zane and Riley in suits... because they *suit* each other.
Think they'll ever reunite? (Just tell me yes. I'm crying here.)

Happy 4th of July...
Two more weeks 'til new Degrassi.

We have a new Ryan this summer (everyone should have a Ryan -- they're very good to have around) and he took some of the behind-the-scenes footage from the Degrassi: Now or Never teaser shoot (aka: the fireworks promo) and put this together for you.
Wasn't that thoughtful of him?
I like it. Particularly watching Munro, Jahmil, and Ray doing their little bonfire dance.
Oh, summer. I hope you have lots of bonfires in you this year, because I want to set off bottle rockets with my friends and feel nice nice like in the video.

Soon, Ashley Argota (aka Lulu from True Jackson) will be heading to NYU to study nursing -- her mom's a nurse, too. In the meantime, she talked to us about dress emergencies, books, and best friends. (There's a True Jackson marathon on right now! If you didn't know!)
I was just looking at your Kids' Choice Awards look... it was gorgeous. How do you pick a dress for an event like that?
Thank you! I'm not even gonna lie, I picked that dress the night before the Kids' Choice Awards! I had another dress picked out a few weeks before -- it was kind of a peachy orange, but I was not really wanting to wear orange because the carpet is orange. So the people who dressed me for my birthday party -- I had a big 18th birthday bash this year -- sent me dresses from NY literally the day before the show. My brother had to drive them from my house to the set; I tried them on on the set. And it was a little bit too big so I had to get it altered, and I didn't try it on again until the morning of the Kids' Choice Awards, like two seconds before we left. And I took my shoes and I ran out of the house.
Oh my God. That sounds like an anxiety dream I used to have about prom.
It felt like... it was a nightmare, I was so nervous. Because I wasn't there when the lady altered my dress! We had to pin it ourselves, and I'm not like a master wardrobe person. I was so scared that it was going to be botched but it turned out perfectly.
I saw somewhere that you love to read and you always have a book on set. Is that true? Very true. Right now I'm reading a poetry book by Billy Collins, called Horoscopes for the Dead.
What are your favorite books of all time?
The Great Gatsby -- I read it for school. And usually when you read a book for school you think it's going to be a little bit boring, but I talked to Greg Proops who plays Mr. Madigan -- he's a total bookworm. And when I mentioned that I had to read The Great Gatsby, he was like "No no no, you don't understand; that's a great book." And he was so right.
When you're picking out a book that school isn't making you read, what do you usually gravitate towards? I really like books by Sarah Dessen. I think she's a really good writer. And of course I'm a big Twilight and Harry Potter fan.
So, what do you like about Lulu on True Jackson? I love that she tries to find the positive in everything. Pretty much nothing can faze her, she can be having the worst day and still try to find something positive in it, which I love.
And I guess she and you have in common that you're both pretty good at school and enjoy it?
Yeah, I think that's where we're the most similar -- she's very booksmart. But she also gets so easily distracted, and that's where we totally part ways because I'm very, very focused in real life and she's very much... not.
Do you have a real-life best friend?
I do! She's been my best friend since we were 8 years old; my mom and her mom were best friends for years, and they lost contact. And I was singing in my hometown and they somehow got reconnected, and then I became best friends with my mom's best friend's daughter!
That's so cool! Did you just have stuff in common immediately?
Well, it took awhile because she was really shy. So I kinda had to pull it out of her. But now, I mean... she won't stop talking. It's all good now.
What do you consider the rules for best friendship? What keeps it together?
I think honesty and loyalty. One of the cool things about her is that, if something is going on, she won't even hesitate to tell me. And she also gives really, really good advice, which I appreciate. Because she's not in the business... and in the business there are so many people that you don't know if you can trust them. And I know that I can trust her and that she's really loyal.

We're showing lots of True Jackson this weekend (through Monday!) so we put up a shiny new quiz -- Which True Jackson, VP, Character Are You?
I took the quiz the other day to be sure it was working right, and I got Lulu, which made sense, since I was in a Lulu-ish mood.
Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope it's fun. YAY for the unofficial start of summer!
