MJ still Reigns
5 years ago today, the world was shocked to learn that Michael Jackson, the King of Pop himself, passed away suddenly in his home here in LA. 5 years later, we remember that fateful day … and take some stock on what the late MJ has been up to in recent months. As I understand it, Michael Jackson has made more money in the years since he did than he did in the last 5 years that he was alive. Just this year, he released a new album titled Xscape and a new single with Justin Timberlake titled Love Never Felt So Good. At the Billboard Music Awards last month, a hologram version of MJ performed on stage … and kinda slayed everyone who laid eyes on the performance. Altho he’s been dead for half a decade now, Michael Jackson has been enjoying more success than he has in many, many years. More »

Hey, guess what! Pink is the new Blog is 10 years old today. It’s kinda hard for me to believe that it’s been a decade since I “officially” launched PITNB but … ’tis true. I have been blogging longer than PITNB‘s 10 years (I believe I started my first blog back in 2012 but my site on easyjournal.com was lost years ago when the site shut down) but it was back on June 1, 2004 that I decided to focus my random blogging into something more uniform, more focused … more pink. I’ve been thinking for the past couple of months about how to mark the occasion today and in the end, I decided to just write a simple blogpost about it. Back when I started blogging, there weren’t very many blogs on the Interwebs. I didn’t know what the Hell I was doing, I just wrote stuff and shared it online with whoever was out there who cared enough to bother. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to reach quite a lot of people and the course of my life was changed forever. Let’s go back 10 years to June of 2004 and remember a bit the way things were in the blogosphereTM a decade ago this month. More »
The one about the anniversary
It was 10 years ago last night that the series finale of Friends aired on NBC to an audience of 52 million people. Since that time, the various Friends actors — Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston — have all gone off to do their own projects on TV, film and/or on the theater stage, leaving fans clamoring for some sort of Friends reunion. As you may recall, Courteney reiterated, yet again, on The Late Show with David Letterman last month that the cast of Friends will never, ever get back together again so, sadly, today’s 10 year anniversary of the end of Friends will not be celebrated with any sort of reunion. I guess all we have to go by are our own memories of one of the greatest sitcoms of our generation. More »

Today is the 10th anniversary of the movie Mean Girls — one of the brightest high points in Lindsay Lohan‘s acting career — and to celebrate, Lindsay posted a fun photo on her official Instagram profile. As you may recall, we learned back in March that plans were in the works for a full-on Mean Girls reunion but since today is the actual anniversary and no reunion has taken place, it’s likely that the occasion will not be celebrated as it should. Irregardless, Lindsay felt like celebrating so see the photo she shared below. More »

April 21, 1989
25 years ago today, Nintendo released the Game Boy compact video game system and revolutionized the world of video gaming.

Homage to the Game Boy must be paid. More »
