Feel the Byrne

With the 2020 elections right around the corner, I anticipate a lot of protests happening over the next several months.

The concept and execution of protesting is nothing new. In fact, it is the number one way social and political reform has ever been challenged – regardless of country, class, or creed. Protesting has been an effective means of creating change when done correctly and consistently.

Recently, lead singer of The Talking Heads (one of the best bands of all time – that’s not opinion, that’s just fact) created a “Protest Playlist” that attempts to unite a front and promote change in a world where we all feel like we have no control.

For inspiration (and just really good music) you can stream his playlist online.

Dancing 101

The movie Dirty Dancing came out more than 30 years ago and it’s still one of the most beloved and nostalgic love/dance movies of all time.

The dance part I kind of get. I mean, there’s only a handful of “dance” themed films and they’re all cheesy as f***, so it’s really not that hard to compete with.

The romance part I’m not sold on. The female character is literally named “Baby” and Patrick Swayze looks like a creepy opportunist at least twice her age.

But despite all of these points, Dirty Dancing is still a cult classic and one in which many women (and maybe a handful of men) base their fantasy relationships on.

So, if you are one of those people that idolizes the film, here are some epic dance moves you can practice to score your very own Patrick Swayze.


Alyson Stoner Returns After 17 Years

Alyson Stoner sat down with Ellen… 17 years after her first performance in Season 1, around the time she shot to fame as the featured kid dancer in Missy Elliott’s “Work It” music video. After rejoining Missy onstage at the recent 2019 MTV VMAs, Alyson stopped by to talk with Ellen about what it was like dancing at the awards show and how she’s greatly downsized her life.
