No More Clowning Around

A British cruise saw quite a ruckus following a massive brawl reportedly provoked by a passenger dressed as a clown. The P&O cruise ship Britannia was on the final leg of a cruise to Norway's fjords from Southampton, in southeast England, when a violent confrontation erupted due to hard feelings over the attire of a passenger on the “no costume cruise.” Police have reported that three men and three women were assaulted during the fight and that there were a number of injuries including cuts and bruises.



No Country for Originals

Disney’s been a remake and reboot machine since 2010, and no wonder they aren’t slowing down, they’re making massive bank! More than seven billion dollars has been made by remakes alone in the past decade, with three remakes released in 2019 alone - “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” and “The Lion King” (all in live action! ...Well, live action and a ton of CGI). This string of remakes seems to have started with “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010, although there were two live-action films based on “101 Dalmatians” in 1996 and 2000.



Walk It All Off

Regular walking has benefits for your physical and mental health! Healthier, happier, and brainier are those who have walking as a part of their regular daily routines. Sitting at a desk all day, it’s easy to start feeling like a brainless polyp, whereas walking and talking, we are able to both view and experience the world as it changes and morphs, giving us time to ponder the wonders of life and all it has to offer.



TikTok Goes the Clock

TikTok has become the app of a generation - showing up on all forms of social media imaginable and spreading humorous videos of millions of users daily. “Call it guerrilla radio for the smartphone generation.” The app now shows up on Spotify and Apple Music, where TikTok-focused playlists have tens of thousands of followers, and even has a multitude of YouTube playlists, which have shined new light on previously discarded oldies.




Back on the Throne

Max Holloway has defended his featherweight championship status following an attempt to climb into the ranks of the lightweight bracket. Losing an interim title fight in April in the lightweight category, Holloway was able to beat Frankie Edgar to retain his title on Saturday night in the main event of UFC 240 at Rogers Place. A unanimous decision kept Holloway hollering away through the night as the victory was quite well-deserved following a slew of comments stating he wouldn’t stand a chance in the ring.




Once Upon a Time in Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time In Hollywood" exceeded all expectations, pushing past all previous works to become the highest box office opening Tarantino film yet. The film, which takes place in 1969 Hollywood and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, made an estimated $40.4 million between Friday and Sunday and took the number 2 spot at the domestic box office this weekend. "The Lion King" took the No. 1 spot for the second weekend in a row, but the Tarantino film did extremely well considering its lack of brand-partnership and it’s hard “R-rating.” 




That’s My Jam! 

If you need a coffee every morning to boost your mood, you should consider switching your routine to good ol’ jams! Nothing can flip a mood from bad to good like cranking up your favorite summer jam. Music can influence everything from how you feel to how you talk to even how you walk! If you need some recommendations, don’t forget some of these summer classics like Lizzo’s “Juice,” Georgia’s “About to Work the Dance Floor,” and Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down.”
