I would like to share something that happened to me on Facebook earlier this week, and no, it had nothing to do with cat videos or a political yelling match. Monday afternoon I came across this piece in Gizmodo. For the “too long, didn’t read” crowd, it is a case study in Facebook’s community standards. User Erin La Ninfa, who runs the blog “Just Another White Hoe,” created and posted the above image to Facebook to find that she and the friends who shared it were flagged and the imageRead More

If you’re the type of person who is always damaging your carpet, electronics, and furniture with spills, the Mighty Mug just might be the most important invention since the light bulb. I recently had the chance to test out some of Mighty Mug’s long line of products, and I must say, I was pretty impressed. While at first glance, Mighty Mug might appear to be an infomercial-ready gimmick that isn’t quite as cool once you get it out of the box and into your home, I can attest to the factRead More

With that spirit in mind, the Guinness brand is introducing Irish Wheat, the brewer’s newest beer. “When the weather’s warmer, people love crisp, refreshing-tasting wheat beers,” said Padraig Fox, the General Manager for the Open Gate Brewery in Dublin, where Guinness Irish Wheat was brewed. “So now is the perfect time to unveilRead More
National Beer Day is TOMORROW, April 7th, and the perfect way to celebrate is with a nice cold boilermaker. In case you haven’t heard of a boilermaker, it is the delicious pairing of a cold beer with a shot of whiskey. The popularity of the drink has come in ebbs and flows but recently, bartenders around the country have been hearing more and more orders for boilermakers. It is unclear where exactly this classic cocktail stems from but there are multiple claims of its origin. There are a few theories below for yourRead 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

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
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
