And The Winner Of ‘Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Blood Vs. Water’ Is . . .

SPOILER ALERT WARNING

Back in August we got our first look at the season 29 cast of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water and last night, the sole surviving winner was revealed on live TV. After all these years, I am still a really big fan of the Surivor franchise and I watched every single episode of this season religiously. As per usual, this season entertained and annoyed me to no end but, thankfully, the most deserving players made it all the way to the end. I loved that the final 3 were all women because, truly, the ladies played the best game this season. And, of the last three ladies, only one truly stood apart as the ONLY player deserving of the million dollar prize. Click below to find out if Jaclyn, Natalie or Missy was voted the Sole Survivor of San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. More »

Joan Jett, Lou Reed & Green Day Have Been Inducted Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The Smiths and Nine Inch Nails have not

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Lou Reed, Ringo Starr and others — including Green Day — have been announced as inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame … which is great news for those acts. I really had my heart set on both (or at least one) The Smiths and NIN getting into the Rock Hall in their first year of eligibility but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. That said, I am beyond ecstatic that both Joan Jett and Lou Reed are finally in. More »
