If you're just now emerging from a deep slumber and have no idea what's going on in the world, here's an FYI: one of the greatest weeks of the year is upon us. (Cue the 'Jaws' theme song.) Happy Shark Week, shark fans!
The restaurant biz is super competitive, which is why standing out from every other place is a key compenent to success. Of course a good restaurant should have great food, but first impressions (aka the kind that happen before you even walk into an establishment) are often overlooked. This is where creative signs come into play.
Optical illusions can play some really weird tricks on our brains. We think we're looking at one thing and then... sike! It's something else. Honestly, what the heck. But you know the best type of illusions? The photograph kind, because they can be all sorts of awesome, strange and funny
We're all entitled to our own opinions, but food is arguably the best part of any holiday. See, eating our way through this sort of celebration is an automatic win-win-- we're happy, our stomach's are happy, everyone's happy.
When it comes to taking fashion risks, awards shows are the ideal time to just buck up and go for it. There are like, millions of people watching, after all. That being said, it does take a whole 'lotta guts to ere on the side of crazy couture, but this year's Oscars were bound to have some of those fashion risks, right? You betcha! Check out the craziest getups from the Red Carpet.
2012 was a fantastic year for pranks. Remember that awesomely sassy 'Psh' joke or the adorable Mistletoe setup? We'll say it til we're blue in the face-- we love pranks! They just make life a tad bit more interesting. Now that 2013 has rolled around, we think there's no better way to welcome the year than by bringing you a whole new set of hilarious shenanigans.
Welcome to the new year, y'all! We survived the Mayan Apocalypse, went to our office holiday parties without going totally nuts and witnessed Kathy Griffin trying to get in Anderson Cooper's pants. We're still trying to get that image out of our brains. Regardless, we made it to January, and that's pretty impressive.
Aww man! We've been sucked in again. It's another edition of animals in costumes, but we swear it's way worth your time. Why? Well, because there are few things more adorable than dressing up our dogs and cats in holiday garb and showing them off on the Web. We're positive they love it! (Maybe.)
With Christmas only two weeks away, Santa is a pretty busy guy these days. He has to double check all presents are made, organize final copies of the naughty and nice lists and do some last-minute reindeer grooming so they're in tip-top shape for Christmas. It's a stressful few weeks, but Santa's been doing it for like, hundreds of years, so he has the whole thing down pat.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to get into full-on turkey mode. After all, it's never too early to loosen up the ol' belt buckle to ready ourselves for Thursday's feasting. While we're getting totally hyped about eating tons of stuffing and gravy and pumpkin pie, we still feel like the holiday prep could use a little extra oomph, and that's where Turkey Day music comes in.
Veteran's Day is one of the greatest American holiday, because we get to celebrate those who have and are still serving our country. It's one of the greatest sacrifices; these men and women are leaving their loved ones to risk their lives for us. For that, we give them a sincere thank you.
With the presidential election less than a week away, candidates are bombarding us from all angles with ads, debates and last-minute pushes to secure votes. (Their efforts are pretty much pointless considering we joined The Pizza Party a while back, but that's besides the point.)
In all seriousness, all this presidential hoopla can be a little overwhelming and upsetting at times. This is especially true if you're a politically-aware four-year-old.
