Heartbreak happiness: make it Swift

Who doesn't love a Taylor Swift break up song? I want to break up with someone just so I can say, 'We are never ever getting back together' 5,000 times in a row legitimately. Unfortunately, I'm happily married and in my 30s, but man, if we weren't so stable, this one would be on my iPod 24/7 (if I had an iPod).

In fact, every one of Swift's songs makes me either want to skip through a meadow with my love beside me, or throw said love down a dark stairwell. I'm seriously considering taking up guitar just so I can spill a few teardrops on my glittering six-stringed instrument and call it a day. Actually, that sounds like a lot of work. Perhaps I'd feel better if I met someone named John, fell prey to Mr. Doe's devilish ways, and then wrote him a nasty note via song lyrics. How epic would that be? 'You played a twisted game with me. Now I'm dissin' you in my quadruple platinum album. Deal with it, Johnny.'

Dr. Seuss saves the Earth The Lorax'

Animated film offers laughs, environmental themes

The works of Dr. Seuss have been adapted to the big screen many times over the years with mixed results. For whatever reason, some of his stories translate well to film while others simply do not. However, his canon is so universally beloved that the movies just keep on coming.

The latest attempt is 'The Lorax,' from the same team that did 2010's excellent 'Despicable Me.' Chris Renaud and Ken Daurio are certainly talented, and there are some great moments here, but the movie never seems to quite live up to its potential.

The film tells the story of Ted (Zac Efron, 'New Year's Eve'), a 12-year-old boy who lives in the town of Thneedville. Thneedville is a town where nothing natural grows, everything is made out of metal and plastic and the air they breathe is sold to them by the tiny and tyrannical Mr. O'Hare (Rob Riggle, 'Big Miracle'). Ted is smitten with neighbor Audrey (Taylor Swift, 'Valentine's Day'), who tells him about her desire to see a real tree.
