A Blessing for Jack Williams


Friday afternoon, Wise Guise founding members Joseph and Palmer Williams became parents. As with all substantial news in the social media era, the revelation of this birth came from a collage in my Instagram feed of two clearly exhausted young parents cradling a small baby in their arms.

Concert Review: Katy Perry - The Prismatic World Tour at the FedEx Forum, October 2014


Alex: Should you invest in tickets to see Katy Perry? I use the word “invest” because the act of purchasing tickets to most pop spectacles now go beyond “buying.” Attendance costs per person now are worth a heavy chunk of change, especially if you want premium seating and merchandising Read more

Can "Gone Girl" actually capture Oscar Gold?


Oscar season has arrived. Hard to believe, isn’t it? The summer was filled with mostly cinematic disappointments. The steep box office decline from years gone by put the industry in panic.

Feeny Friday: First Girl Meets World Teaser Trailer

GMW photo Feeny Friday: First Girl Meets World Teaser Trailer

Happy Feeny Friday, you Feeny Fanatics! Today’s post is as simple as it is wonderful – the first Girl Meets World teaser trailer is here.

We are also getting more GMW cast photos, as well as confirmations that Feeny will be back for the pilot (premiering sometime this summer), Minkus will be back at some point, and the Matthews parents (now grandparents) and Shawn Hunter will be back for a holiday episode.

But on this Feeny Friday, I simply present the teaser trailer. My only comment: I’m hopeful. I’ve been concerned that Girl Meets World would match the cynicism of our age, sacrificing the schmaltzy, feel-good 90s sitcom feel we loved so much and miss even more.

The first scene from the trailer reveals that the show is attempting to keep the same tone from its predecessor, with the narrator even calling it a new family sitcom instead of yet another one devoted to tweens.

Optimism continues to rise. Enjoy!

Feeny Friday on a Wednesday SPECIAL: Jimmy Fallon & Samuel L. Jackson’s Tribute

You may have seen the buzz already. But I wouldn’t be the Feeny Fanatic you’ve come to love and depend on if I didn’t share this wonderful treat from the brilliant minds of Jimmy Fallon and Samuel L. Jackson.

While Fallon continues to exceed already-high expectations as the latest host of The Tonight Show, this idea may cement him as my favorite for a long while.

There is not anything I can do to prepare you for the glory of this video. I’ll let Fallon and Jackson’s love of Boy Meets World and Feeny speak for itself.

minkus girl meets world Feeny Friday: Shawn and the Matthews and MINKUS… OH MY!

It’s been a while, Feeny Fanatics! When we last convened together on a Friday, we talked about Girl Meets World being picked up by The Disney Channel for a complete first season. While we’ve known Feeny would be back in some capacity and there has been some buzz about other returning favorites, all of it has remained pure speculation.

Until the last couple weeks! Twitter and Instagram has given us clues and shots from the show. We still wait for Girl Meets World to premiere and return us to that wonderful world of Cory Matthews and his ever-growing family… but our anticipation continues to build.

Ever since the first Feeny Fridays where we recapped Feeny’s wisdom from the first season, our main focus in rewinding to our childhood (and our young adulthood watching reruns, if we’re honest) has been to glean life wisdom from George Feeny.
