5 Of the Most Scandalous Moments Caught by Paparazzi

By |2021-01-05T15:32:16+00:00November 11th, 2020|Entertain, Music|0 Comments

As a planet, we have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi. On one hand, we can’t really get on board with how invasive they are in the lives of celebrities, however, where would we be without all of their images exposing the lives of the rich and famous? Without the paparazzi, a lot of the most popular scandals that have formed our celebrity culture would only be hearsay without the proof that has been provided to us through the work of the Paparazzi. This makes it very difficult to condemn them. Here are our five favorite scandalous moments caught by the paparazzi.

 

Kristen Stewart Scandal

In 2012, the paparazzi released some pictures that shook millions of teenage fans to the core. The beloved actress, Kristen Stewart, was caught engaging in amorous activities with her Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The pictures that were released to the public showed Stewart and Sanders in a compromising position, which all but confirmed that they were engaging in a sexual relationship. This news was talked about everywhere for months and the images could be seen in every big magazine and all over social media. These images being released to the public meant the end of Stewart’s relationship with her boyfriend and co-star Robert Pattison and also meant that movie executives became hesitant to cast her for some time.

 

Lindsay Lohan Drug Reveal

Another image that really shocked the world was when we all saw the famous childhood star, Lindsay Lohan, with what looked like cocaine on her nose. The image was taken as Lindsay Lohan was leaving a party with a fellow star, Paris Hilton. She looked clearly disheveled and there was no doubt that she was indeed on a substance of some sort. This was a big surprise that later made a lot of sense as she was charged with driving under the influence in the following months.

 

Amy Winehouse’s Episode

One heartbreaking moment that paparazzi managed to get on camera was the unfortunate decline of the singer Amy Whinehouse. The picture shows her crying in the streets, clearly not in a very good mental position. This picture was taken amongst the darkest part of her addiction and truly showed the world just how much help Amy needed. For Amy, this picture served as somewhat of a wakeup call and helped her stay clean for some time before her unfortunate premature death.

 

Peaches Geldof’s Stumble

On a lighter note, another scandal that was picked up by the paparazzi was Peaches Geldof’s unfortunate pram incident. The picture showed the star distracted on her phone while her baby fell from the pram. There were a series of images that showed her quickly ensuring her baby was ok and then continuing with her walk. Though this could have been a more unfortunate story, the baby was absolutely fine and Peaches later went on to laugh about the situation, labeling it a ‘blonde moment’. Luckily for her, the images that were up were not very clear as the paparazzi member that saw it was using a poor quality camera. If you want to be a member of the paparazzi, make sure you always have different types of digital camera to hand so that you will get a clear image.

 

Princess Diana’s Final Moments

Lastly, one of the most haunting images that have ever been captured by the paparazzi was the final moments of Princess Diana. The picture shows a distressed Diana in the back of a vehicle, with her partner at the time. Minutes after the picture was taken, the princess was unfortunately involved in a crash that resulted in her death. To this day, the image only leaves us wondering what they could have been talking about in that car.

4 Quick and Tasty Meals You can Make While Tailgating

By |2020-11-03T17:01:27+00:00November 4th, 2020|Entertain, Music|0 Comments

Tailgating is great fun! And what’s even better is when you can bring some of your best meals along to share. All you’ll need for these recipes is a disposable barbeque, pre-chopped ingredients, and a chill bag for all your perishable foods. Don’t forget your fire-safety by bringing something to extinguish your barbeque in a hurry with, and a first aid kit complete with burn treatments. Now, without further ado, here are four quick and tasty meals you can make while tailgating.

 

Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are a tailgating staple; they’re simple, tasty, and great finger food to share. All you’ll need are hot dog rolls, hot dogs, onions, and ketchup! As long as you know how to cook hot dogs on a barbeque, you’ll be a hit at the tailgate.

 

Skewers

Veggie, skewers, meat skewers, halloumi skewers, all kinds of skewers! These are some of the easiest tailgating foods to make. You can even bring all the ingredients to make an assortment of skewers; pepper skewers, ham, pickled onion, and cheder cheese skewers, grape and feta cheese and so many more.

 

Burgers

Burgers are another tailgating go-to. Burgers make catering for all kinds of diet that much easier; from veggie burgers like bean and chickpea burgers to meat burgers like beef and even chicken fillet burgers! The main things you’ll need to keep churning out these delicious meals are a spread of condiments like ketchup, mayo, ranch, and mustard. Don’t forget those onions too!

 

Halloumi

Halloumi is brilliant for tailgating. It can be used for, and in, everything; from burgers to skewers, salads, and dipping sticks, even on its own, if you bring halloumi to your tailgate. But the recipe I’m suggesting for you is a halloumi and pomegranate salad.

 

Happy Tailgating!

Is Mobile Gaming Going to Enter the E-Sports Scene?

By |2020-10-21T12:55:10+00:00October 23rd, 2020|Entertain, Music|0 Comments

The E-Sports scene is one of the high-stakes actions and dedicated fans. It has slowly moved from being an unknown sport to attracting more viewers than some other major sports such as Golf or Tennis. And it’s not difficult to see why. E-Sports can cover any multiplayer game created. With such a large variety of games available, there is something for everyone. And let’s be honest, video games are always more exciting to watch than more traditional sports.

But even within the gaming community, there is still a lot of heated debates and rampant elitism over what should and shouldn’t be considered a sport. MOBA players will argue that FPS games can’t be a sport. Likewise, FPS gamers will argue that MOBA’s are not really competitive in the same way FPS games are.

But the one area of contention that most gamers seem to agree on is that mobile gaming isn’t really gaming. But we think this is just gatekeeping and elitism. But could mobile gaming ever become big enough to actually enter the E-Sports scene?

 

Is It Gaming

Mobile gaming, at its core, has always be seen as a more casual gaming experience. Designed to be played on the go and while away from your other consoles or PC. And we see the argument made all the time that it isn’t actual gaming.

This mentality comes from the fact that one of the most popular genres of mobile gaming is AFK games. These games are designed to function in the background, progressing while the player isn’t playing. Allowing casual gamers to make progress all hours of the day. But recently we have seen this genre move towards a more competitive environment. I have seen a lot of streamers providing an afk arena code for new players to try to boost the player base of these games.

And because of it, we are now seeing a lot more competitive tournaments happening within these games. Another great example of Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. Both very competitive games based entirely around PvP. It isn’t uncommon for cash prizes to be won from these games. So why isn’t mobile gaming already considered an E-Sport?

 

The Move to Sport

The biggest thing stopping mobile gaming from being considered an actual E-Sport is the player base. While a lot of people play mobile games, there are never enough concurrent users to really establish it as a fully-fledged sport. This is because people have often conflicting schedules. Also, when gamers do have a lot of free time they will primarily spend it on consoles or PC. This means the main gamer demographic isn’t actively taking part in the mobile gaming community.

But, we are seeing a surge in the younger generations using mobile gaming as their primary gaming platform. The advantage of mobile games being playable during school time and being all-around cheaper than other gaming formats. This means as this generation grows there will be more demand for a fully competitive E-Sports scene dedicated to Mobile Gaming

In fact, we are already seeing some companies push for it. Microsoft is considering investing in mobile gaming tournaments, with plans to set up the first official mobile gaming E-Sports teams. This would be a huge step towards solidifying the format as a sport and would allow Microsoft to secure themselves a nice footnote in the history of gaming as well.

But what do you think? Should mobile gaming be considered a fully-fledged sport like other gaming formats? Or do you think it isn’t proper gaming at all?

The Evolution of Jazz Music in the 1930s

By |2020-06-18T12:42:42+00:00June 18th, 2020|Entertain|0 Comments

Jazz is a melodic artistic expression that has extended well past its own type definition, changing with each time and bringing forth incalculable other mainstream present day kind structures all the while. As an aesthetic development of African American people group essentially in the Southern locale of the United States, jazz discovers its most punctual roots in New Orleans, where dark entertainers mixed Southern blues, the frightening varieties of Caribbean music, and a changed type of customary European instrumentation.

Protection from “hot jazz” in the mid twentieth century eventually added to the development of jazz music during the 1930s. During the 1920s, jazz music had spread toward the North, Chicago and New York, where groups gave their exhibitions on the edges of society. During the Prohibition period, jazz was frequently acted in unlawful speakeasies and the Red Light area, causing this “wild” music to be related with the wantonness of that time. Notwithstanding, with the beginning of the downturn the Dixieland jazz that had commanded up until the finish of the 1920s was step by step superseded.

The End of Dixieland

Jazz gradually started to sneak in at the edges of standard music in view of its ubiquity on school grounds, and as a rule, among American youth. The advancement of jazz music during the 1930s added up to a trade off between the music business and the more established age of white Americans, who were continuously tolerating the nearness of jazz music in mainstream society. In any case, this expanding promotion influenced an impressive weakening of the structure, shedding a significant part of the crude, unrehearsed nature of prior Dixieland jazz.

Dixieland was portrayed by the combination of numerous structures – polyrhythmic ragtimes, the low pitch of blue notes, French Quadrilles, and act of spontaneity, just as an enormous beat area of the trombone, trumpets, tuba, guitars, clarinet, the piano, drums, and banjo. It was unusual, and the individual entertainers exhibited their improvisational abilities, playing from their spirits not their notes.

The Rise of Big Band Swing

Toward the start of the decade white large band swing entertainers played “sweet” jazz, utilizing violins and organized sheet music. The explanations behind this specific development of jazz music during the 1930s were twofold. It was progressively made and less hostile to the more established white American crowd. Simultaneously, the beginning of the Depression made an across the board requirement for modest merriments, and jazz-propelled music step by step picked up balance in the recently blossoming radio industry.

The more conspicuous swing courses of action advanced when moving got connected to large band. Move styles, for example, the Lindy Hop, that had been advocated in dark networks during the 1920s were appropriated by white adolescents and presented in ballrooms. Swing ensembles expanded, with 20-25 pieces in an average band. Music was as yet organized, yet singular entertainers were given complex performances, and as was additionally run of the mill in sweet jazz, an artist performed vocals to the music. Well known entertainers of the period incorporate Shep Fields, Benny Goodman, and Glenn Miller.

The undomesticated “hot jazz” of dark entertainers – including Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Jimmie Lunceford – persevered all through the enormous band time, however never picked up the prevalence of its white partner. Large band without any help commanded media outlets, reaching out past radio to TV and film during the 1940s. The advancement of jazz music during the 1930s prompted its possible prominence over the mainland and later, universally. Jazz music has been adjusted all inclusive across social lines, however its modest roots stay in New Orleans, Louisiana.
