The Music That Gets You Through Life’s Ups And Downs

I spent last weekend in Charlottesville, VA.

The trip was mostly to watch the Dave Matthews Band perform at the John Paul Jones Arena, but we also worked in a few detours, like visiting Dave's vineyard and Blenheim Vineyards, because I'm obsessed like that.

The show was pretty monumental, not only because it was in Charlottesville (DMB formed in Charlottesville and until last weekend I hadn't gotten to see them in that city yet, so...

POLL: How Well Did ‘Glee’ Cover Bullying?

Last night, the usually effervescent FOX hit Glee tackled the serious topic of bullying.

I don't want to put any Glee spoilers out there, but suffice it to say Kurt Hummel (played by Chris Colfer) deals with bullying, standing up for himself, and a has his first kiss.

(If you haven't yet seen it, you can catch the episode - "Never Been Kissed" - online courtesy of FOX.)

Of course, this isn't really the first...
