I grew up in South Haven, Michigan. Gotta love the Lake Michigan shore. I still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily. I moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College, fell in love with GR and have been here ever since! (Go Beer City, USA!)

I’m a big fan of crime TV, the ’90s (scrunchies! “Saved By the Bell!”), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really, really love it, OK?), reading, people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

"I've heard of Grand Theft Auto! It's a pretty big show!"

What’s New to Netflix in February and What’s Disappearing

I'm relatively new to the magic that is Netflix. When I think about my life before it, it just seems so empty.

And now, like all other Netflix addicts, my heart simultaneously swells when I hear of new shows and movies that are coming, and breaks when I hear what's leaving.

Are you ready? Here's what's coming and what's disappearing in February.

Bad Lip Reading Hilariously Takes on NFL, Again [Video]

Lately I've felt like I was missing something. Thank goodness Bad Lip Reading has a new video to bring the joy back into my life.

I freaking love this stuff. If you haven't seen the BLR series which dubs hysterical commentary over movies, music videos, TV shows, political ads and more, do yourself a favor and check it out on YouTube.

This time around, Bad Lip Reading tackles the 2014-2015 NFL season. Ever try to read the lips of a coach screaming on the sidelines? Or what did that pissed off quarterback just mumble? Now we know what they COULD have been saying. And it's damn funny. Watch Bad Lip Reading's NFL installment above-- just in time for the Super Bowl!

YouTube Prankster Turns Home into Giant Plastic Ball Pit [VIDEO]

YouTube prankster, Roman Atwood, is at it again.

Man, his poor wife.

In a previous video, and what might be the cruelest "prank" ever, Atwood had his wife believing he'd dropped their toddler over a balcony.

This time around, the situation is a lot less dire. But I can't imagine coming home and being happy to come home to find my residence turned into a giant ball pit.

Nikki Sixx is not a Justin Bieber fan? No way! And it turns out Vince Neil is no Belieber either? What??

Yeah, as you might have guessed, the guys in Motley Crue don't think too highly of the often shirtless, gym-selfie taking, soon-to-be Comedy Central roasted, pop star.

Sixx and Neil were being interviewed by WGN in Chicago about The Crue's Final Tour when the topic of Bieber came up.
