Format Things Correctly and Mind Your Manners, Even on the Web.

Do you ever get sick and tired of the countless formatting rules your professor requires for an assignment?  Have you ever “just turned it in” without checking to make sure you followed or read the directions?  That’s probably not the smartest move.  In fact, it could turn out that you just wasted a lot of your own time.  Here is an example of why it is ALWAYS a good idea to check the formatting requirements for anything you turn in, whether it is to a professor, a journal, or a judge.

Ever notice how people who run websites sometimes engage in cyber fights with the owners of other web sites?  If you said no then you are missing a huge piece of World Wide Web hilarity.  Get started with the recent developments from over at the oatmeal.com.  There is even a legal twist that involves defamation and intellectual property. There is something for everyone!

The Fun Keeps Rolling Along!

Pauly Shore is coming to The Comedy Zone, 3130 Hartley Road, Ramada Inn, Jacksonville on June 22 and 23 at 8 and 10 p.m. Tickets for the show are $23 and $28. “Hey buddy”- don’t miss out on the laughs. If Pauly doesn’t suit your interests, how about the Jacksonville Suns? The Suns have a full line-up of home games this weekend. On Saturday, June 23 (ARod Bobblehead Giveaway) at 6:05 p.m. and on Sunday, June 24 (Military Appreciation) at 3:05 p.m. Is anything hotter than the Jacksonville Suns? If these happenings don’t sound like what you’re looking for, then check Folio Weekly’s online list of events happening this weekend. You’re sure to find something you’ll like! Have a great weekend!

It Takes a Village… Person.

Some people find a calling In the Navy, others Go West in search of fortune, and still others find all they need at the YMCA. But perhaps no one has had as much success with that particular trifecta as Victor Willis, the original lead singer of the Village People.

Now, the man often known simply as the Motorcycle Cop has been given the green light to reclaim his copyright interests in those songs and others (at least in the U.S.). The Guardian (U.K.) has summed it up best with the headline - Village People’s policeman lays down the law on his right to royalties.

The Agony and the Ecstasy!!

Guts and Glory; or Blood, Sweat, and Tears? With sports, it always depends on if your side is winning or losing, or the level of violence involved. This is the perfect weekend to experience the highs and lows of organized sports; there is something for everyone! Some of the options are the Stanley Cup playoffs (Go Canucks!!), UFC, and the Roller Derby

If you are not into the agony and ecstasy of organized sports, maybe you want to check out all things Turkish at the Turkish Festival, or visit the Tour de Farm event, which showcases Northeast Florida farmers, free food, and more.

Whatever you choose to do, make sure you enjoy the penultimate weekend before finals.

Don’t say there’s nothing to do this weekend; check out these events!

As always, there are a lot of happenings going on around Jacksonville this weekend. How about heading out to the beach for the 22nd Annual George’s Music Springing the Blues Festival at Jax Beach. Make sure you check the schedule, so you don’t miss your favorite artist. Musicians will be playing all weekend, starting Friday night and ending Sunday evening. There is also a Running the Blues 5k on Saturday at 9:30am; race day registration is allowed. If visual art is more to your liking, then try the MOCA Jacksonville’s ArtFusion Sundays To Dye For event.  Finally, enjoy arts and crafts and plenty of exhibits and music in Orange Park at the third annual Art & About: Neighborhood Art and Music Event on Saturday.
