Certain things in this world are an absolute certainty; you can't wear white after Labor Day, nobody likes the tax man, and you're always going to hear absurdly loud music when drinking at a bar, usually played by a tone-deaf white dude with an acoustic guitar. In particular, these 10 songs seem to be on every bar's perpetual playlist.
If I hear one more douchebag with an acoustic guitar playing "Wonderwall" I'm gonna lose my mind.
It's not a night out unless a group of girls are shrieking along to "Livin' On A Prayer."
Or a bunch of drunken morons ruining Journey's "Don't Stop Believing."
Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" is played so often by random dudes in bars that I honestly had to look up who it was originally by.
The songs get even more ridiculous from here...
Fun fact: "Closing Time" is actually about a birth, not about getting kicked out of a bar.
Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me" never fails to liven up a crowd, especially ones that were teens in the 80s...
Even if you're not in a country bar, you're almost guaranteed to hear Garth Brooks's "Friends In Low Places."
Does anyone actually still like Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" outside of Alabama?
Pretty sure I can recite AC/DC's "You Shook My All Night Long" despite never hearing it outside of a bar.
If I never hear "Home For A Rest" again it'll be too damn soon.
What ever happened to slapstick comedy?Slapstick comedy, sometimes referred to as physical comedy, was once a staple of both stage and the small and big screens. Prominent comedians like Chris Farley relied heavily upon slapstick comedy in order to get laughs out of their audiences, but they themselves were taking after physical comedians who traced their careers to the days of Old Hollywood. Perhaps one of the first onscreen physical comedians was Buster Keaton, a silent film star and former vaudeville performer who translated his remarkable knack of physical feats into deadpan comedy.Keaton was a huge success, with
Las Vegas might be enduring a tough time right now, but history says Sin City will bounce back.Vegas has gone through periods where its future appears to be in doubt before only to come out the other side a lot stronger, though it has been saddening to see it as a virtual ghost town.We love the 1980s here, so we decided to take a look at what Vegas casinos were like then - this story of reinvention could show the path forward for Sin City.A crisis of identityThe 1980s was a strange time for Vegas. The decade
Although the grunge look pervaded the 1990s street fashion, 90s TV and culture, and seeped into haute couture, the decade's amazing films provided fabulous alternatives that managed to draw people away from grunge back to more refined, fashionable attire. As the COVID-19 pandemic sequestered most individuals and has caused a casualization of our wardrobes (50% of managers interviewed in a survey said their workers wear less formal clothing than they did five years ago), we can look back to these fabulous 1990s films for inspiration to rebuild our wardrobes for the re-opening of society now that we have a vaccine.
If you love McDonald's, you're not alone; according to Wikipedia, McDonald's operates almost 40,000 stores in more than 120 countries. When you've got a hankering for a Big Mac, you'll likely be able to walk down the street to get your meal instead of driving to the next town over.With how popular the fast-food chain has become, it's no wonder that their prices have steadily risen since the 90s. But recent concerns over McDonald's ever-growing prices has meant that some consumers have gone elsewhere for their fast-food fix. The answer? Throwback Thursdays.And we don't just mean that
