Interesting behind the scenes film about baseball and a different approach for building a team. Jonah Hill is great and Brad Pitt delivers a good performance. Read the book for more detail about the true story of Billy Beane and the Oakland A's.
This well written and beautifully drawn book shows a young girl asking various questions about whether princesses act or dress like she does. It demonstrates that princesses can be active and athletic and get dirty and wear hiking boots.
The Black Keys have a unique sound that is also reminiscient of classic 70s rock bands. Lots of great tracks on this CD especially Howlin' for You and Tighten Up.
This book is a good early introduction to ballet, showing the different types of clothes and shoes that are worn, getting dressed, the stretches, the 5 positions and the costumes. Nice illustrations
"Ripped in 30" kicks it up a notch from the "30 Day Shred" DVD. There are 4 workouts, intended to be used progressively as your conditioning gets better. Each workout includes cardio, strength training (using hand weights) and abs. These workouts move quicker than the 30 Day Shred (no activity is done for more than 30 seconds) which I liked. Jillian is a little more intense in this DVD. Level 1 is not quite as easy for beginners as level 1 in the "30 Day Shred." A great workout when you don't have a lot of time.
