Little mix is a girl band from England that formed just for Uk's Xfactor and also became the first group to win the competition. The band consists of Jade Thirlwall (22), Perrie Edwards (22), Leigh-Anne Pinnock (24), and Jesy Nelson (24). I think that they have improved a lot since 2011 and definitely...

"Transpose" is Bad Suns' most recently-released album. It was released on August 7, 2015. Although there are just two songs on the album, "Transpose (Embody Remix)", and "Transpose (Leo Kalyan Remix)", the songs are very well thought-out. The band has played multiple times at Colorado Springs local...

I wouldn't classify myself as a "gamer". I don't play Call of Duty, or any typical "gamer" video game, for that matter. But there is one game that I have consistently played for the last three years, and have bought opening day every year: FIFA by Electronic Arts (EA). I wouldn't classify myself...

It was said that One Direction's career was over since member Zayn Malik (22) left the band. But Harry Styles (21), Liam Payne (22), Louis Tomlinson (23), and Niall Horan (22) are releasing their fifth album, called Made in the A.M. Its release date is November 13th. I knew when 1D stated that they...

I hardly ever go to the movies. Whether that is because Netflix and Hulu are sufficient enough that I can binge watch episodes from my bedroom and don't have drive twenty-five minutes to Tinseltown. Maybe it's because the overpriced movie tickets, drinks and popcorn don't live up to the hype. Nevertheless,...

Max Frost's recently-released EP, "Intoxication" is a pleasant surprise. It is the first material he has released since the 2013 album, "Low High Low", which features catchy beats like the hit, "White Lies". Intoxication is more of the same with percussion, guitar, electronic beats, and catchy vocals....

They are called legends for a reason. They're not only good at what they do, but they are irreplaceable and their shoes cannot be completely filled. They leave a legacy. Imagine trying to replace Seinfeld. It'd be impossible, the show wouldn't go on. Or try to substitute another character for Homer...

Marvels Avengers Age of Ultron (2015) is one of the greatest movies Marvel has produced. The Marvel universe began with the movie The Avengers: Avengers Assemble, which was just a battle against Loki (Tom Hiddleson), the God of mischief and lies.

The DUFF isn't just your stereotypical high school movie. No, it is so much more than that. Mae Whitman stars as Bianca Piper in this hilariously adorable film about a girl who's life gets completely turned around when she is labeled the Designated Ugly Fat Friend, or DUFF. Her mission from then on...
