    RETURN OF THE JONAI

    Picture this: hundreds and hundreds of gawky, brace-faced, barely-there teenyboppers squealing with delight every time the Jonas Brothers are near, losing their voices from screaming out song lyrics at crowded concert venues, and getting into heated debates over which brother of the three is the best. We can all remember that part of our young lives, and for the past three years, the

    Pentatonix Sings Their Way To Stardom

    A cappella groups have been increasing in popularity over the last few years. America’s fascination with singing groups and reworked pop songs may have been piqued by Glee, but the interest has grown larger and more varied. The film Pitch Perfect, a movie about college a cappella groups, was released last fall, winning huge amounts of critical and popular praise. NBC has aired three seasons of The Sing-Off since 2009, with a fourth season slated to appear within a year. The show pits a wide range of a cappella groups against one another as they compete for a cash prize and a recording contract. The Sing-Off has featured talent from the United States and Puerto Rico, reaching from young teens to elderly, once-famous musicians hoping for a second chance in the industry. While all of the groups featured in the program have been extremely talented, one group in particular has really started to soar into popular consciousness. This group is Pentatonix.

    Where are they now? Cast of the O.C.

    The O.C., which was the big breakout show of the early 2000s, is still raved about by people of all ages. Fans of The O.C. have admitted to re-watching every season of the show because they cannot seem to get over their obsession. The hit show, which aired from late 2003 to early 2007, took place in the upscale community of the sunny, waterfront town of Newport Beach, Calif. The fictional series focused on teenagers and their families trying to survive the drama, scandals, constant rumors, love affairs, and troubles of Orange County. Benjamin McKenzie, who played Ryan Atwood, the bad boy from Chino who was taken in by lawyer Sandy Cohen, was loved by teenage girls everywhere for his harsh façade and kind heart. Ryan Atwood was immediately adored by viewers for meshing with his new family and new brother, Seth Cohen. McKenzie has since made a name for himself and won critical praise for his role as an L.A. cop in a more serious show, Southland. Mischa Barton, who played Marissa Cooper, the girl-next-door and on-and-off love interest of Ryan, was considered one of Hollywood’s “It Girls” after the premiere of the show. Marissa Cooper was dealing with the stresses of school and the divorce of her parents by battling with drugs and alcohol. Barton, who upset die-hard fans by quitting the show, went on to star in Ashton Kutcher’s television show, The Beautiful Life, and start up her own fashion line. With neither project being successful, Barton got into some DUI trouble and has laid low since then.

    Relay for Life: Because Everyone Loves a Birthday Party

    More birthdays. Longer life. Loved ones. Why do you Relay? This Friday, March 22, you will have the opportunity to show your support for those battling cancer, to celebrate cancer survivors, and to honor those who lost their lives to this disease. Providence College’s Relay for Life event, organized by the PC chapter of Colleges Against Cancer, will take place in Peterson Recreation Center and is open to all students. Relay teams have been formed, but individuals-even those who have not registered-are welcome. Relay will be a 24-hour event, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., signifying that “cancer never sleeps,” and teams are encouraged to have at least one member walking around the track at all times. PC’s Relay coordinators hope this year’s event, themed “Relay Around the World,” is as successful as the last. There will be activities going on throughout the night, and people can partake in everything from prize drawings to fitness and dance classes to Student Congress’ Pie-in-the-Face game to seeing a comedy show performed by Rejects on the Rise or Six Gents.
