Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

How Would a Real-Life Dad Deal When his Kid is ‘Taken’? (Video)

"I will find you, and I will kill you"-- is Liam Neeson's famous line in the movie "Taken". He then does some serious ass-kicking to save his kidnapped daughter. Entertaining and action-packed, but definitely not realistic, because of our dads... well, they aren't action movie stars. So how would a real dad do in that situation? Probably about as well as the dad in this video by sketch comedy group Captain Hippo. I mean, it's rough when your kid gets all taken when you're trying to enjoy some delicious meatballs. You might want to snack on some before you really start to worrry. Also,  you know rush hour traffic is going to be a real pain, so not watch some  TV and wait it out?

British Mag NME Says Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” is Best Song of Last 60 Years

To commemorate their 60th birthday, British Music Magazine NME put together a list of the top 100 songs in their "lifetime"-- so the best songs in the past 60 years. Even taking into account their leaning toward British artists, the list is likely to stir up controversy and get people talking. Their number one pick? Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart"-- beating out Michael Jackson, the Beach Boys, and The Beatles-- The Fab Four didn't even make the top ten!

Pine-Sol Lady’s Prank Scares the Crap out of Volunteers (Video)

When you think of the word scary, you might not immediately think of the Pine-Sol lady. She seems pretty nice right? Jolly and upbeat even. However, in a filmed product test back in April, spokesperson Diane Amos really horrifies the hell out of some volunteers. She's so effective, you get the idea there may have been some "accidents" that needed to cleaned up with some Pine-Sol.

Happy Mother’s Day! Michigan Momma Cat Adopts Baby Squirrel (Video)

A mother's love know no bounds... or species, it appears. 8-year-old Bailee Shultz was playing in his grandparents' backyard in Bangor, Michigan when he heard something crying. An investigation turned up a tiny squirrel, less than a week old, who had fallen from it's nest. They worried the little guy wouldn't make it. Bailee's mom, Stephanie, decided to try something. Her cat, Oreo, had just given birth to 5 kittens. What if they put the baby squirrel in with the litter?

Baby Makes Best Grossed-Out Faces Ever (Video)

Usually kids aren't the biggest fans of vegetables. This is why parents have to trick them with "airplane fork" or "choo-choo train spoon". For me, my dad's clever method of "daring" me-- I bet you won't eat that. I'm sure you can't finish your broccoli-- got me every time. Challenge accepted, Pops, I will absolutely kill all this broccoli! Well, the little one in this video is also not a fan of her greens. And you can tell by the absolutely horrendous faces she makes while choking them down.

Craigslist User Seeks ‘Bacon Dangler’

A gentleman on Craigslist is looking for someone who can really dangle some bacon. When I first heard this story, my mind went straight to the gutter-- I mean, 'dangle bacon'? C'mon. If that isn't sexual innuendo, I don't know what is. However, I was mistaken. Turns out the Craigslist poster is actually looking for someone to help him work out...Yep. Think of the whole carrot on a stick idea-- this guy is hoping the delicious breakfast meat will help get him to the gym.

“Finding Bigfoot” in Michigan

Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot" had me hooked with one commercial--  one of the show's "bigfoot hunters" whispers, "I do think there's a 'squatch in these woods..." all Blair Witch Project-y into the camera. ( "Squatch" being short for "sasquatch"-- of course.) If you're not familiar with the show, as you might have guessed, it centers around the search for the mystical creature known as "Bigfoot" in cites and towns across the US. Apparently there have been some  "sightings" here in Michigan, because "Finding Bigfoot" just wrapped shooting in areas around Gladwin State Forest, Houghton Lake, and West Branch.

80′s Classic ‘Back to the Future’ Gets Remade as Silent Film (Video)

What if  "Back to the Future III" had been made in the 1920's instead of the 80's? Well, Marty McFly would probably be time-traveling in a Model-T instead of a Dolorian... but, aside from that it might look a lot like the following clip.  Complete with title cards and old timey piano music, here's  the classic 80's flick as a short silent film.
