OK, we're baaaack! And after a 1000 mile drive back from a great vacation in Panama City Beach we've got a lot planned for this week. As always, don't forget that, in addition to this blog, you can find us on  Twitter, on Facebook and our Yahoo group

Per usual, expect the unexpected to alter our course as needed but, at the moment, here's how the basic game plan looks ....


Our New Music Monday magic laser spotlights "True Blood," the soundtrack album from the HBO series. Now don't jump to any conclusions ... just because we've just returned from a vacation in the South ... and we only come out at night to enjoy "Life After Dark" ... and we've been doing our show for almost a quarter of a century ... Trust us ... this album does NOT suck .....


Getting enchanted by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? Taking the kids to see G-Force? Will you spend one of your days of summer seeing 500 Days of Summer? Maybe you're thinking of checking out the latest rom-com, The Ugly Truth. What about Judd Apatow's foray into dramedy with Funny People? We'll talk about all these big screen options for the month of July and more when we welcome Hank Sartin, Film Editor for Time Out Chicago.


The New GM and the passage of Cash for Clunkers are just a few of things we'll discuss with our friends from Consumer Guide. Plus your new and used car questions! Joining us tonight are Consumer Guide's Associate Publisher, Tom Appel and Online Managing Editor, Jennifer Geiger.

If you call in with a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) for that used car you're thinking about buying, you'll get a free vehicle history report so you'll know the car's condition before you sign on the dotted line.


A Google Chrome operating system?!? What the?!? We'll talk about that and try to solve your computer problems on Website Wednesday Night with the Cybersquad all back in full force ....
