• AOL continues overhaul, announces more comedy content

    AOLAOL sure is working hard to overhaul their reputation! In addition to launching a late night video block featuring Adam Carolla, Kevin Pollak, and Kevin Smith, now comes news that AOL, Mark Burnett, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., and Coalition Films are collaborating to develop a series of comedy shorts based on the infamous CliffNotes literature study guides.

    The animated shorts will be available at AOL.com in the next year. I sure could have used this in high school – I’d certainly rather learn about Dickens from a comedy video than trudge through A Tale of Two Cities.

When not reading or writing in any official capacity, she spends her time playing the drums, watching crappy TV, and eating copious amounts of tacos and barbecue.
