Take A Number Swift

Here's something for John Mayer to tweet about--if he even still has one. Looks like Taylor Swift's new album, Speak Now, won't just be lashing out at a Jonas brother.

A few lyrics from the song Dear John are pretty telling that a relationship may have bloomed and died out between the two musicians quicker than Mayer could make an uncomfortable singing face.

"Dear John/I see it all now that you're gone/Don't you think I was too young/To be messed with/The girl in the dress/Cried the whole way home/I should've known."

"It was wrong/Don't you think nineteen's too young/To be played/By your dark, twisted games/When I loved you so."

John, what'd you do?

Shatter Doubt, Get Determined

The working world is tough right now with a bad economy and a lack of job openings. Chicago bred and Duke alum Amanda Holt saw this reality from the start and decided to help by giving the younger generation a very much needed outlet. In 2009 Shatterbox was created to, "...give college students what I wish I'd had: a look into the lives and motivations of fascinating young professionals."

Shatterbox isn't just a site to read over what other's have accomplished. Its a way to get inspired. Holt herself got inspired to create Shatterbox by asking friends to connect her with people who had a story to tell. "Almost everyone knows someone who amazes them. So there started a thrilling, rolling snowball of damn cool people. Essentially, it was curiosity, turned passion turned real business," Holt explains. "Shatterbox was born to show college students and grads that happy careers happen by showcasing the stories of inspiring young professionals. It offers a vibrant social community and resource blog to help passion-hungry young people find their way."

HALLOWEEN 2010
The Sunny Coast Gets A Little Dark

What once went down in flames is now coming back to haunt. Griffith Park in L.A. comes back with a vengeance with an eerie hayride.

Griffith Park was built in the early 1900's and was once owned by the Clifton family. The land became a small zoo and most popular with the community. That is, until the animals became buck wild and neighbors went stir crazy. Animals started showing behavior changes and residents came together to discuss what was probably just animals getting frisky one day.

The church meeting ended with a mass of flames killing all in attendance. Now 100 years later, they are coming back for a hayride treat.
