It’s with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix, full of songs that deftly capture that melancholy end of summer vibe. Take a listen, and share your favorite sad summer jams in the comments. Keep reading »

The 3 Most Excruciating Music Videos Of The Summer

A good music video can make a mediocre song tolerable, but a bad music video of an equally bad song creates an aural singularity of fart-stained terribleness. These are the worst we’ve seen so far this year — and 2013 is far from over. Consider the following your State of the Union address for “Things That Will Make Two of Your Five Senses Atrophy,” or perhaps a sonic Cerberus of “Shittiest Song of Summer 2013.” In any case, we’re sorry.

The 8 Most Awkward Ways To Beat The Heat

The 8 Most Awkward Ways To Beat The Heat

Until yesterday, I had been enjoying this summer from the comfort discomfort of my un-air conditioned, fourth floor walk-up apartment. In May I was all, “I can totally do this! It’s not even hot out yet!” but by July my tune turned to, “I just want to take a cold shower and sit in the dark in front of my fan. No one talk to me.” That’s when I hit rock bottom, as it were, and started looking for opportunities to cool down nearly every place I went.

I was the crazy lady asking for six cups of ice from Starbucks, the eager employee who would stay late just to enjoy extra time in front of an AC. And that was really just the tip of the quickly melting iceberg. Last night I knew I had to buy an air conditioning unit, because these awkward and absurd beat the heat techniques started sounding like heaven to me. Read more on College Candy…

mud day

Yesterday, the 26th annual Mud Day took place in Westland, Michigan. In case you missed it, Mud Day consists of children ages 12 and under getting down in a 75-by-100-foot mud pit. At the end of the day, the Mud King and Mud Queen for “most creative uses for mud” are crowned. The Western Wayne Hazmat team is involved in clean-off the kids. Needless to say, I am fascinated and more than a little hurt and disappointed that grownups are not allowed.

But despite these findings, I am still pretty confused about this day of mud. Here  is what I desperately need to know: Keep reading »

To play, you simply print out and cart with you to the beach. The first person to spot all the items in a row — horizontally, vertically or diagonally — wins a prize! The prize, aside from the ability to lord it over your friends in the observational skills category, can be of your choosing. But hey, you’re smart, so think big. In case you’re unsure, an explanation for each item is after the jump! Keep reading »

11 stages of surprise sunburn

We are all too familiar with the abusive nature of the sun. It’s like that snake cane Jafar carries around with him that makes you do whatever he wants. It’s alluring and inviting one minute, and just when you think you’re safe and call it quits, you can’t bend your knees without cringing in pain for a week. The first step is admitting you have a problem. Think of this, along with a healthy does of sunscreen, as your support group.
