It seems that these days nothing is sacred. Anyone who's viewed MTV's hit show "Jersey
Shore" can tell you that. After near constant badgering from my cousins, I turned on that show.
After about five minutes it felt like my brain was melting out of my ears.
UNO Television presented a homemade documentary during the event "Relive the Journey: St. Cecilia's Cathedral through the Lens of UNO Television" on Nov. 30. About 45 people attended the event, which took place in the Community Service and Public Affairs Commons building's room 132 at 5:30 p.m.
Although the Oscars were last week, it feels like they just ended five minutes ago.

"Let's face it, the Golden Globes are just like the Oscars, but without any of that esteem," host Ricky Gervais said, opening the Golden Globes Sunday night. The awards show, put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, honors both film and television.
Last season of AMC's "The Killing" started with the murder of teenager Rosie Larsen and ended with the Darren Richmond (Billy Campbell), a much older conflicted politician, arrested for her murder.
"Mad Men," perhaps one of the best shows on TV, returned Sunday night after an agonizing 17-month hiatus.
Steve Buscemi has a long and accomplished acting career. He was disturbing as a serial killer in "Con Air," terrifying as a hit man in "Things To Do When You're Dead in Denver" and practical and smart as Mr. Pink in "Reservoir Dogs," but all were supporting roles. Despite this varied history, his career lacked a crown jewel, so it is fitting that his first major starring role is in an HBO series. In "Boardwalk Empire," he plays Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, an Irish gangster/city treasurer in 1920s Atlantic City.
