Yall should check out Culture Geek written by a STLer but mostly about TV, movies, books, generally fabulous geekdom.

I highly recommend it for all of your internet needs.

STOP SAYING YALL.

I DON'T CARE IF EVERY OTHER LANGUAGE HAS A SECOND PERSON PLURAL PRONOUN. ENGLISH DOESN'T!

Jo's absolutely right. "Yall" is ignorant. You should write y'all instead.

:-p

English does have a second-person plural pronoun- "you". The weird thing about it is that it must be clear enough from the context that you mean "you" to be plural for it to be so; it's ordinarily assumed to be singular.
