In my first post of a series, I want to introduce Roto-Rooter® to you as a brand I have used for over twenty years in every home I have ever lived in. I have really long hair, and it does not take long before it has caused a slow running drain in the shower or a complete clog. I trust that when I pour Roto-Rooter down my drain that it will unclog my drain in no time.

Why do I trust Roto-Rooter to unclog my drain?

For one, It works, plain and simple and it is safe for all pipes.

High Strung Movie Premiere and Twitter Party

High Strung Movie Premiere and Twitter Party

I recently had the opportunity to screen the movie High Strung before it premieres in theaters on April 8th.

High Strung Is rated PG and is a movie the whole family will love to watch. Dancing and Music go hand in hand, so it is natural that this movie wants to make you get up and dance. Now I definitely do not have the skills as the dancers in the movie, but who doesn’t like to dance now and then.

High Strung Movie Premiere and Twitter Party


About High Strung

In a city where only the best succeed, two amazingly talented people need to find harmony, to achieve their dreams. A dancer from the Midwest on scholarship to the Manhattan Conservatory of the Arts, Ruby Adams, discovers that competing in New York City isn’t so easy. Johnnie Blackwell is a British musician; that plays for money on the subway platforms. Ruby’s world is disciplined and classical. Johnnie’s is improvisational and street smarts. When a hip-hop dance battle, gone wrong throws these two artists from opposite worlds together, they clash from the start, but can’t deny that there are sparks between them.

Their lives quickly become entangled in the pitfalls that come with competing in New York City. With the help of an awesome dance crew called the SwitchSteps, Ruby and Johnnie must find a way to save her scholarship and keep Johnnie from being deported.

In an action packed dance extravaganza of cutting edge hip-hop, contemporary, and classical dance, Ruby and Johnnie must come together for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.

See the Music. Hear the Dance,

I would love to say so much more about the movie, but I will not spoil it for everyone else. I will say that High Strung is excellently choreographed and is full of non-stop dancing.  Just go see this movie for yourself. The High Strung Movie Premiere is April 8th.
