Listen to “The Cup” By Relient K

Need something to get you in the holiday spirit? Check out Relient K’s Creepier EP, a collection of Halloween-themed songs. The goofiest song, “The Cup,” is all about Halloween candy, particularly Butterfinger Cups. Yes, it’s silly and ridiculous, but it’s a fun song that will definitely get you in the mood for some fun-size chocolate bars.

Watch Timeless

A historian, a soldier, and a computer programmer become an unlikely team when a top-secret time machine is stolen.

Watch Big Hero 6

Hiro Hamada is a prodigy when it comes to technology, but he’s not sure what to do with it. With the help of his brother, Tadashi, Hiro is introduced to a group of students at a local university and he fits right in. When he loses his brother in a fire, Hiro is determined to find out who caused it, so he enlists the help of his new friends and Tadashi’s robot, Baymax. Featuring a lovable robot and a cast of geeky, unique characters, Big Hero 6 is a fun, exciting, and thoughtful film.
