GIVEAWAY AHOY! Win Free Bon Jovi Tickets!

Picture 11The first concert I ever saw live was Bon Jovi and Cinderella at the Bayfront Center in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1987. At that point in my life it was by far the coolest thing I had ever seen. When my 15 year old self saw Jon Bon Jovi strut out in the same jacket he wore in the "Livin' on a Prayer" video I thought I was going to pass out. I screamed like it was the Beatles. I knew then that I could die happy.

Friday Combo Platter: It Takes a Willage Edition

Friday_combo_platter It's time once again for the Friday Combo Platter, the weekly feature in which we highlight our favorite LOL-or-WTF-worthy comments and our favorite email thread from the past seven days.

This week's best email thread was actually born out of what was originally our comment of the week. But the ensuing snark was too funny and another comment came along to take its place. So, let's get to it, shall we?

Help MamaPop Kick Ass

Click here to vote for my blog ... early and often

ETA: Please remember you can VOTE ONCE PER DAY until 10/9, and keep those votes a-comin'! Might I also suggest an additional vote for MamaPop as BEST OVERALL BLOG, too?

MamaPop has been nominated for a BaltSun Mobbie Award in the Best Pop Culture Blog category (WOOT!), and it goes without saying (I hope) that we can and should win this thing, in the name of all that is right and good in the world... In the name of Mad Men, and True Blood, and NPH, in other words. cough.

Voting is open until 10/9, and you can vote once daily, so won't you please take a moment to vote for us? Your support keeps MamaPop strong, and means the unicorns and glitter will keep on flowing, unlike those shity gettho pop culture sites that FORCiBLY redirect your Sidekick LX to a crappy mobile site. WHICH WE WOULD NEVER DO, BY THE WAY.

. . . . .
PS: Sweetney is also up for a Mobbie, in the Family category, and obviously if you wanted to vote for me too I'd have NO PROBLEM WITH THAT WHATSOEVER.

Friday Combo Platter: Shity Gettho Edition


You are regularly treated to the wit of your beloved MamaPop writers here on the site. But did you know that behind the scenes we crack each other up via our email distro? At least once a week, an email thread brightens the days of your resident pop culture mavens through the cunning use of sarcasm and absurdity. Not too long ago, someone had the fantastic idea of picking the best thread of the week and letting the readers get a peek inside the insanity, er, brilliance that keeps this place going.

We also receive some very special comments from you, our dear readers. Comments that give us some insight into the quirky inner workings of the emotional roller coasters that you ride when reading about shark movies and Top Chef and Speidi.

So, as material permits, we're going to start bring the best of the distro and the comments in a new feature called the Friday Combo Platter.

OH NOES! Edward Kidnapped!

Those of you who were at Sparklecorn 2009 doubtless remember the presence of our friend Edward, who was featured prominently in many a party photo taken that night:

Edward2 Edward3Edward4 Edward6

Well at the end of the evening, we were startled to find that... we could not find him. He was GONE. *POOF!*


But wait. It gets better. MUCH better.


We Don't Want To Party All The Time. Just Most Of The Time.

Talking+HeadsTo be clear, we would love it if we could just party all the time - I think that we have demonstrated that amply - but we're so much more than that, really. Sure, we can dance up a storm and toss back the whiskey, but hey: we has thoughts, too. Also, ideas. And: more thoughts!

Because that was the other thing that we were doing at BlogHer, when we weren't dancing our asses off or carving up unicorns: we were holding forth with our thoughts. And it was awesome.


    The best of celebrity gossip and entertainment news, MamaPop.com is smart pop culture analysis, commentary, merciless fun-making and other
    sundry awesome, dished up daily by parents, for parents, and anyone else who understands that playtime is better with vodka. Please to enjoy.
