Good Morning, RVA: #TBT

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time to pull out all the old embarrassing photos you wished stay buried.

Good morning, RVA! It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for friends on social media to pull out all those old embarrassing photos you wished stay buried with your repressed high school memories!

Some awesome RVA folks made this video at the Coalition Theater to win a spot on the finale of Drunk History. This intoxicated history report focuses on the story of Sybil Ludington, who was famous for her night ride alerting American colonial forces of the approach of the British during the Revolutionary War. Vote for it!


Cats on Instagram vs. Cats in Reality. Hard investigative reporting by Buzzfeed that exposes cats for what they really are.



In honor of Throwback Thursday, I’m pulling out one of my favorite songs from my early college days when I fought the system by listening to mainstream pop punk. And the video features Rachel Leigh Cook. Remember her?
