The 30 Best Songs of 2016

No year in recent memory has brought with it as much turmoil and general fuckery as 2016. From the celebrity lives lost, to the spiraling of world events, to the dumpster fire that was the US presidential election, it seemed like this was the year that would never end. And of course it had to be a leap year too, extending our misery for an additional 24 hours. 2017 can’t get here soon enough. In these twilight days of this lemon year, there are a few things to look backRead More

Iconic Tide Ride Returns to NASCAR

Last week, P&G’s Tide brand announced its return as a sponsor in NASCAR, partnering with Joe Gibbs Racing and veteran Sprint Cup Series driver Matt Kenseth. As the iconic laundry detergent celebrates its 70th anniversary, the classic orange-and-yellow paint scheme will once again hit the track, reborn as the new powerful Tide PODS Toyota Camry, to showcase the evolution of the brand. Not only were Tide Brand Manager Amy Krehbiel, Coach Gibbs, and Matt Kenseth in attendance, Tide brought back all former “Tide Ride” drivers – including Darrell Waltrip, Ricky CravenRead More
Jason Redman Brickyard 400
Suffolk, Va., July 6, 2016 – In just a few short weeks, racing fans from across the country will flock to Indianapolis for one of NASCAR’s biggest events of the summer. And despite being named the winner of the annual Crown Royal “Your Hero’s Name Here” program, which renames the Brickyard 400 after a deserving hero, retired U.S. Navy SEAL Jason Redman’s name won’t be displayed around the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway – for good reason. Redman instead asked that the race bear the name of the charity he andRead More
Last year, I was lucky enough to go to Indianapolis to see the Your Hero’s Name Here 400 (formerly known as the Brickyard 400) in person. I was able to take in the race, and get to meet the heroes that had competed for the naming rights, including last year’s winner, Jeff Kyle. It was an amazing event, and one that I am proud to support. This year, the field has been narrowed down to five finalists, who you can learn more about here. Vote for your choice by JuneRead More
After months of hype, rumors, mudslinging, and conjecture… we are only at the starting line. But at least we finally know who our two major party candidates will be. So what’s next? A lot more chatter and hype. But eventually we WILL arrive at our first presidential debate. So in preparation for that epic September night, here is the official Trump/Clinton drinking game to get you through proceedings. Take ONE shot EVERY TIME the following occurs: – Hillary coughs or shows signs of illness – Trump mentions his wealth –Read More

The Bathroom Debate: One Man’s Take

I recently went to Six Flags Magic Mountain with my brother-in-law on a whim. Upon walking through security by the entrance plaza, I saw a scene all-too-familiar within high capacity events: long bathroom lines. Typically, the line for the men’s room is nothing to fret about. The line moves relatively quickly and one can get their business done without too much of a hassle. Popular culture has indicated to us that women use the restroom for much more than simple paperwork, if you catch my drift. For women, the restroomRead More
For all you LA devotees who like the occasional stroll down Hollywood Boulevard or shopping binge at the Grove, you might have spotted something out of the ordinary during the last couple months. Apart from the costumed performers, protestors, and all round weirdos that call these venues home (we’re really talking about any of the three at this point), a smattering of sign wavers have been making the sporadic appearance. Whether setting up shop on the Walk of Fame or taking up real estate on the trolley tracks, their propagandaRead More

Upside Down & Inside Out

You’ve probably seen them on treadmills. Maybe you haven’t, but you’ve seen them dancing in a backyard. It’s probably the treadmills, though, since that’s what the Chicago-based band, OK Go, is known for– their catchy music and incredible videos and stunts that accompany them in a long, single take– starting with their backyard dance to their song A Million Ways, the video that catapulted them from sophomore artists to the band with the most downloaded music video ever, and continuing with their viral video for Here It Goes Again. ThatRead More
Anonymity allows a certain degree of freedom, does it not? Free from the bounds and obligations of ego one can explore the whims of creativity apart from fear of criticism or judgment. It’s a dimension the internet age has afforded us. Behind usernames, proxies and guises our wildest fantasies come true. This liberation erases the boundaries whether they be personal, political, or in the amazing case of Soundcloud and other uploading services, sonic. Such an auditory liberation has given birth to a cornucopia of artists previously unheard by the massesRead More
Several notable black individuals in the world of Hollywood filmmaking have come out in protest against the 88th Academy Awards this upcoming February. Director Spike Lee will not be attending this year due to the fact that all 20 actors and actresses that have been nominated this year are white. “We cannot support it and [I] mean no disrespect to my friends, host Chris Rock and producer Reggie Hudlin, president [Cheryl Boone] Isaacs and the Academy,” Lee wrote. “But, how is it possible for the second consecutive year all 20 contenders underRead More
Decadence 2015
A hush fell right around 9:05 p.m. on night one of Decadence 2015 at the Spaceport stage. The anticipation in the air was palpable as eager ravers looked from the people in their groups to the stage, waiting. With the initial sound from the first song JackÜ played, came a roar that echoed through the massive hall on the top floor of the Colorado Convention Center. From that moment on, the set was a party. Heavyweight producers Skrillex and Diplo, who came together to form their massive side project JackÜ,Read More
The following article contains SPOILERS of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ Proceed only if you’ve already seen the movie, and if you haven’t what the heck is stopping you? If its $1 billion take is any indication, most of us have already witnessed the force awaken (maybe three times if you, like me, were alone this holiday season). For the most part, Star Wars: The Force Awakens seems to have done a great job washing out the bad taste left in our mouths from the much maligned prequels. The reviews have beenRead More
