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.

Paranormal Activity in Grand Rapids? (Video)

I've always been pretty quick to dismiss the idea of paranormal activity. Things that go bump in the night? Well, those aren't my sorts of things. There has to be a practical explanation-- an open window, a noisy neighbor, a dripping faucet... but certainly not ghosts. There are those who do believe in an active spirit world, however, and some are right here in Grand Rapids. I was surprised to find out about all the "haunted" places in GR. WZZM 13 did some digging -- check out the video after the jump.

Jack the Cat Found after 61 Days!

Money Bags doesn't travel well. There's yowling, hissing, general unrest. I've never flown with him, but I'd imagine it wouldn't be a treat. Aside from that, something new to worry about:  he could get out of his cage and get lost at the airport for 61 days!  Have you heard about Jack the Cat who got lost at JFK?  Well, amazingly, they found him!  Jack survived and is now in critical condition. Check out the video after the jump.

Lance Bass’ Heart2Heart Boy Band: For Real or For Fun? (Video)

Whoa, whoa, whoa-- are boy bands back?! The verdict still seems to be out as to whether Lance Bass' new group Heart2Heart is legit or intended as a parody. However,  after watching the video to their debut single "Facebook Official", I don't really see how there could be any questions-- it's a total hoax. That doesn't mean I don't love it.

15 Scariest Music Videos Ever (Video)

Halloween costume shopping this week has really put me in the mood for the holiday. While I do like the dressing up and celebrating part to Halloween, I'm not the hugest fan of the scary part-- horror movies, haunted houses, ghost stories. Hey, I'm kind of a wuss, OK? However, there is some fun to being just a little creeped out. The vids in Billboard's 15 Scariest Music Videos Ever list are definitely in the creepy category. Check out the Channel 957 artists' videos who made the list!

Kidd’s Kids: Make A Difference in a Sick Child’s Life

As a kid, I was lucky to be healthy. Getting my tonsils out was the most traumatic it got, and really, I just remember eating lots of popsicles. Good health was, and still kind of is, something I take for granted. Even now, I don't know what I'd do if I got really sick. I can't imagine being a child and having a terminal illness-- the tests and surgeries, the pain, worrying about your parents and siblings. Not to mention missing out on the fun--  the birthday parties, the school trips, even just going outside to play. And when I think about any possible way to help, I don't know where to start. Is there anything that I can do to help these kids? The answer is yes.

KISS Rocker Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed Finally Get Married!

I'll admit it, I'm a Gene Simmons fan. My mother doesn't understand this: "Janna, he's a disgusting womanizer. And what about that hair?" She is right on both accounts, but for some reason I still find him charming. Well, as a womanizer, of course charm would be one of his strong points. I don't even really like KISS, I just really really like reality TV and will absolutely get down on a "Gene Simmons' Family Jewels" marathon on AE. So, I'm pretty glad to hear news that Gene and Shannon finally got hitched!

Gisele Bündchen’s Half Naked Commercial is Sexist? Gasp! No Way! (Video)

A Brazillian goverment agency wants a Gisele Bündchen TV ad pulled for being "sexist". Maybe I'm so used to seeing half-naked women on TV that it doesn't really phase me. I'm like, duh, of course it's sexist-  most bikini, lingerie (and for that matter, feminine hygenie product) commercials are. Also, the ad not being in English didn't really help me out.
