PBS Goes Social with GetGlue

I’ve been exploring a new social website called GetGlue. They have an interesting way of trying to put together community of users around TV Shows, Music, Videos, etc. So, obviously I’m interested in ways to improve the community that I’ve created around the Pure TV Network of websites. I’ll talk more about integrating GetGlue into the various Pure TV Network blogs later.

Today GetGlue is launching an interesting relationship with PBS. I’m a huge fan of PBS myself and you’ll often find me watching Front Line and Charlie Rose. I love them because they provide me a little bit more well rounded entertainment that informs me of things that I’m not that familiar with.

I must admit though that I’m regularly interested in discussing or reading discussions and reactions about what’s been shown on these PBS shows. With PBS’ partnership with GetGlue I’ll be able to have that chance. Plus, you can even get some free stickers for the shows too:

I also find it interesting that PBS plans to use GetGlue to promote their new PBS shows like: The Tenth Inning, God in America, Circus, and Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook. It’s really a great idea to promote these shows to people who’ve shown a liking to other related shows. Isn’t technology great?

Celtic Woman on PBS

I’ll admit that I’ve been watching a ton of PBS lately and enjoying so many of their late night programs. Well, tonight the introduced me to a group I’d never seen before. The program was called Celtic Woman. I really enjoyed the performance, the music, and the pure entertainment value of the show.

I found my favorite video of Celtic Woman on Youtube where they sing You Raise me UpCeltic Woman - Celtic Woman - You Raise Me Up(Download the MP3 of Celtic Woman on AmazonBuy Celtic Woman CD on Amazon). This video is a little bit different than the one they showed on PBS, but the arrangement of the song is the same. In fact, I think I like the following video even better than what they showed on PBS:

I really look forward to seeing the Celtic Woman performance again in the future.
