This afternoon, FIFA held the drawing for the 2011 Women’s World Cup: check out who the top-seeded Americans will be facing. Do you guys watch women’s soccer, or any women’s sports for that matter?

Another big announcement today, but from the film industry. The Academy just announced the hosts for February’s Academy Awards: James Franco and Anne Hathaway??

Sometimes, sports and music make a beautiful combination. For proof, watch Hannah Storm (of Sportscenter) interview Beyonce.

Speaking of music, this is an interesting feature on dancers who perform on the subway. Have you guys seen them around?

The Frisky shows how to wear knits and florals. Perfect for places where the weather isn’t freezing yet!

And finally, it’s never too early to start making D.I.Y. holiday gifts.

The new rules for couples and technology.

Are “hyper-texters” more likely to engage in risky behavior?

In the U.K. a straight couple has applied for a civil union, which may end up helping the push to legalizing gay marriage.

Guaranteed to make you feel old: the cast of Harry Potter grows up.

The most common Facebook profile pictures– hilarious and so true!

I’m not a fan of Scarlett Johansson fan, but I’ll admit her SNL Millionaire Matchmaker spoof is spot on!

Scientific reasons why you should be watching 30 Rock.

Video Love 

Speaking of 30 Rock, the show’s hilarious creator/writer/star Tina Fey recently won the Mark Twain Prize for comedy. I didn’t watch the ceremony at the Kennedy Center, but even her Q & A is entertaining.

I don’t watch Glee but I love the show’s take on Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”.

A short movie about life on Facebook, featuring music by the Rolling Stones.

P.S. I changed my blog’s theme, though it’s pretty similar to my last one. I’m looking for a new header though, and I’ll gladly take any suggestions!

This week’s Link Love is pretty extensive. It’s a collection of way too many articles and blogs that caught my attention during my hiatus. Enjoy!

A moving, introspective column by Roger Ebert on the internet and  all the lonely people.

Via Fashion Smashion, really cool things you didn’t know about sleep.

For my fellow New Yorkers, 50 reasons to love living in the City– perfect for those days when you miss the subway.

I’m not the biggest fan of fan, but this post made me re-evaluate autumn.

For all those techies out there, did Apple kill the CD?

The South and football: even debates over mascots get intense.

Really cool, creepy and beautiful abandoned ruins.

Life lessons we can learn from Thelma & Louise.

It’s only the second week of November, but it’s never too early to make Oscar predictions.

The election is over (and if you follow me on Twitter, you know not to get me started), but this statement about women and politics released by Congressional candidate Krystal Ball still resonates.

An ode to terrible school photos– awesome.

And finally, you can read my first-ever theater review on the Broadway musical Brief Encounters here.

Video Love 

“Falling Slowly” from the movie Once is just one of those mellow, melancholy songs I can listen to on repeat. Perfect for a rainy day. 

With all the recent press coverage on bullying, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made this video to remind people that “tomorrow will be better”.

It all started with a mouse, and an adorable one at that. (Side note: did anyone else see lots of Minnie Mouses this Halloween? Just me?)

What not to do during a live newscast. At least at Fordham Nightly News, we’re better than this!

I love the latest Sara Bareillis video, King of Anything. The song is fun and catchy, and her outfits are pretty awesome.
