Redo your hair

Ever feel like your hair looks like it needs a pick-me-up, but have no time to wash it? I found the best product by hairstylist Jonathan Antin that freshens up your hair and gives it a revived look called "Redo". It is perfect for when you leave a smoky bar and want to rid your hair of the odor without having to shampoo. Redo is a mist made with vegetable enzymes and natural extracts, which break down dirt and oil with no alcohol, which can cause dryness. After spritzing a little onto my hair it feels and looks clean with a hint of added shine. The bottle says it can also be used to hydrate skin, which I've never tried; but on my hair this product is tops for me - a must have!

Hip Hop honored

VH1 honored old-school hip hop on Tuesday in a celebratory ceremony in New York City. They gave legend awards to Beastie Boys, MC Lyte, Rakim, Ice Cube, Eazy-E, Russell Simmons, Afrika Bambaataa, and Wu-Tang Clan. The honorees were greeted by current hip hop artists where they paid tribute by performing some of their old-school hits. The show started with Diddy, Q-Tip, and Fabolous taking on the persona of the Beastie Boys by performing a few of their hits, followed by a cool performance from the Beasties Boys themselves. The fans in the audience were also excited to see appearances from Xzibit, Fat Joe, Young Jeezy, Common, and so forth. Like typical awards shows this one lasted for two hours, but the time flew by with every minute filled with a nostalgic act taking the stage. It was exciting to see the two generations on one stage entertaining us with ease. VH1 will re-air the show throughout the week and weekend. I cannot wait to watch again.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!

Comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has to be the funniest show on television today. It's about four twenty-something year old friends and an Irish bar. Three of the four of them own the bar in Philadelphia, while the fourth is a bartender/server. The cast contains three guys and a gal, of which prior to this show I've been unfamiliar with their work. The show just wrapped up its second season on network FX where they've added Danny DeVito to the cast. Danny Devito plays the father to one of the bar owners and the gal server, where he is divorcing their mother and needs something else to focus on.

Each character is very different and brings something unique to the table. Dennis is the narcissistic twin brother of Deandra a.k.a Dee who, being the only female, gives the guys a piece of her mind whenever she sees fit. Mac is lighthearted and immoral at the same time. Last but not least Charlie is the easy target they all pick on, and happens to be my favorite character. The show covers unconventional and controversial topics, but in a comedic manner. Show topics like "Charlie Has Cancer" where Charlie pretends to be sick with cancer in order to win the sympathy and heart of a girl. "The Gang Runs For Office" is where the four of them get involved in politics, knowing they cannot win their haphazard cause, just to make an extra buck. One of my personal favorites "Charlie Gets Molested" is where they mistakening think Charlie was molested by a teacher back in high school and have an intervention for him years later.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is a great show where the writing is wity and hilarious, and the characters are addictive. When in season the 30 minute comedy airs on FX, Thursdays at 10:00 pm. Currently the show is airing re-runs on FX, Sundays at 11:00 pm where there are usually back-to-back episodes.
