Well today, after much fanfare, ok not really, Rocketboom 2.0 introduced its new “map” and a not- so-flattering hair style for Joanne Colan (sorry Joanne). After spending all of two seconds on the subject, they moved on to discuss Pluto and jumped to an on-the-scene report that captured the landmark vote that stripped it of its planetary status. For the record, Pluto is now considered a dwarf planet, which now makes Mercury the smallest planet in our galaxy.
Yesterday on Rocketboom, host Joanne Colan surprised us with her closing statement, or actions rather, by turning around and ripping down the famous wall map that has served as the backdrop faithfully since episode one. Yes, we knew that this was inevitable – especially since this is Rocketboom 2.0.
News? Hardly. Fun? Sure.
Just when the blogosphere was starting to question her future, Amanda Congdon reminds us that she’s still around (and talented) with an amusing, but sad reminder of her current reality.
With a clever twist however, we zoom in on Amanda wearing a business suit, eating breakfast in front of an audience comprised of stuffed dolls at her parent’s home.
Congdon picks up a familiar stack of papers and begins to read the news to her captive viewers.
In one of the best Mashups in vlog history, Rocketboom 2.0 met Tiki Bar TV celebrating its first “Casual Friday” with new host Joanne Colan.
Colan introduced the episode acknowledging that usually RocketBoom would not run its normal Casual Friday episode, because she was “dying” to jump into the news.
While reading the day’s top story about some ArchBishop (wasn’t really paying attention), Dr. Tiki from TikiBarTV, leans into view, stares into the camera, and states, “It’s Friday. And yes, it’s supposed to be a casual day.”
After much anticipation (or shall we say fanfare), Rocketboom 2.0 launched today with its new “interim” host, Joanne Colan. You may know Joanne as a former VJ for MTV Europe. To most of us however, she is an attractive woman with an English accent. I was unfamiliar with her work, so I approached today’s vlog with an open mind.
