The softest rapper in the game has reached a new milestone.. As of last night he’s finally a High School Graduate! And not just from Degrassi.
As most everyone knows by now, Drake was a child actor on the TV show Degrassi. He also dropped out of high school to do so and just this past summer went back to finish.
Of course the streets are talking.. Many are giving him props for following through on his diploma, others are clowning that a 25 year old man is bragging about an average 18 year old’s accomplishment.
Facebook hit 1 Billion monthly users today, and also launched their first ad campaign. The video is basically an abstract 90 seconds of comparing Facebook to various inanimate objects (mostly chairs, though).
“Chairs. They’re made so people can sit down and take a break. Anyone can sit on a chair and if the chair is a large enough they can sit down together and tell jokes or make up stories or just listen. Chairs are for people and that’s why chairs are like Facebook.”
Did they get their intended message across? Would this make you sign up if you didn’t have an account? Speak on it, I need to find somewhere to sit down and think about this.
Remember all those kids who were last picked for everything in High School? Well, they need somewhere to party too…
Applebee’s is testing out a new model in many of their Tampa, locations.. calling it Bee’s Late Night or “Club Bee’s“. After the restaurant clears of their typical family-oriented customers, the tables clear and the strobe lights come out- as DJ Such & Such plays the hottest PG-Rated 80′s, 90s, and Carly Rae Jepson you’ve ever heard.
The idea is to attract more of their younger customers who come later to dine and drink, then go elsewhere to hang out and party. I mean, what better way to burn off that 1460 calorie Three-Cheese Chicken Penne you just had than to dance it off on Wednesday’s Girls Night Out at The Bee’s?
The concept doesn’t come without its (obvious) criticism- restaurant consultant Clark Wolf says, “People aren’t sure what Applebee’s is to begin with. An all-American family chain? What does that mean anymore? This is not where I want to go for cocktails later. It’s weird. It’s like dating a cousin.”
Can Applebee’s ever be cool? Who knows, but dammit, they’re giving it a shot. I just better not get a drunken high heel in my Triple Chocolate Meltdown.
The once prestigious title of “Coachella Attendee” is at risk of becoming as common as “DJ.”
Once upon a time patrons vied over extremely limited spots and paid exorbitant prices for secondhand tickets for that one cherished weekend in mid April out in the desert. The acclaim the show continues to receive lead event promoters Goldenvoice to the only logical conclusion…. Put on as many bastardized versions of Coachella possible throughout the year.
Last year, Holy Ship! expanded the performance scape to a 4 day cruise chock full of EDM heads and performers. Without fail, the S.S. Coachella sets sail later this fall. Carrying on this path of dilution, those at the helm announced the possibility of even more Coachella branded shows throughout the year, bringing the total to 5 festival weekends per year. Oh my!

Is this a matter of suppliers meeting demand? Or too much of a good thing? We want to know your thoughts..
Chris Breezy’s new neck tattoo is causing quite a fuss…
According to E! News, Brown’s publicist and tattoo artist stated its a sugar skull, associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. However critics are saying it looks like a beaten woman.. more specifically Rihanna.
Of course he denies the claim, and tweeted “I’m an artist and this is art. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).”
Either way the tattoo is hideous, and you’d think he would know he’d catch heat with assumptions. Ah well, look at him now.
