About The B-52s: Selling over 20 million albums worldwide, The B-52s—Fred Schneider [vocals], Kate Pierson [vocals], Cindy Wilson [vocals], — have quietly impacted alternative music, fashion, and culture over the course of four-plus decades. They count John Lennon, Madonna, James Murphy, and Michael Stipe among their disciples. Panic! At The Disco, Blood Orange, The Offspring, Pitbull, Roger Sanchez, and DJ Shadow have sampled classics from the band’s discography as Seth MacFarlane’s FamilyGuyThe Simpsons, Sugarland, and more offered up covers of their own. They inched towards the forefront of the post-punk movement in America codified by 1979’s self-titled The B-52s. Not only did the record go gold, but it also placed at #152 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time” and #99 on VH1’s “Greatest Albums of All Time.” The gold-selling Wild Planet arrived hot on its heels in 1980. With Keith Strickland brilliantly filling the void in with music composition and live show guitar duties, 1989’s watershed Cosmic Thing elevated the B-52s to another galaxy altogether. It moved 5 million-plus units and spawned a string of Top 10 smashes in the form of the GRAMMY®-nominated “Roam” and “Love Shack”—which Rolling Stone lauded on the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”

4 Nerve-Wracking Moments We Endured While Watching The Invisible Man

Who doesn’t love a good thriller? 

Sometimes, we watch, and it’s okay, and other times, we catch a good one, and we’re tense and terrified the entire time!

That’s the effect The Invisible Man had on everyone. 

There were many moments in this film that left us on the edge of our seats with our hands buried in our hair—just stressed out. We desperately wanted to figure out how Cecilia was going to beat something she couldn’t see!

With that in mind, let’s get into the four most terrifying moments that left us cringing in suspense. 

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT!]

Cecilia Trying to Escape From Her Home

The movie starts with Cecilia trying to leave her husband and the extravagant fortress of a home they shared. We can tell she’s already planned this “escape”, but watching her try to get out of the house is enough to make the hair stand up on your body. 

Perhaps, the tensest moment in this scene is when she accidentally kicks the dog bowl and makes a lot of noise. Still, then as a viewer, you were probably annoyed that she almost got caught up trying to take the dog along with her. 

Leave the dog—save yourself!

Her attempt to save the dog allowed the husband (Adrian) to nearly catch up with her. Right as she hops in the car with her sister, he smashes his hand in the window as they drive off. 

She Finds Adrian’s Phone in the Attic with Recent Pics 

If you think your husband’s dead but you find his phone in the attic buzzing, it’s only natural to be a little creeped out!

There were already some strange occurrences that she didn’t pick up on like the handprint on the shower door, or his breath behind her when she was standing outdoors. 

When she locates the phone, she notices that it’s Adrian’s phone with a text message that reads “surprise.” This is a pivotal moment in the film because it’s the moment that she realizes that he’s around in some capacity.

Then, it only gets more insane when she ends up pouring the can of paint and sees the outline of a man!

The Infamous Restaurant Scene with Her Sister

At this point in the film, her sister has had it with her because she believes that Cecilia sent her a nasty email, but it was Adrian (of course). 

Suddenly, when she’s sitting at the table with her sister at the dinner table, a knife rises in mid-air and quickly slices her sister’s throat! Of course, Cecilia is terrified, shocked, and in a state of paralysis. There’s no way she can prove her innocence at this moment. 

The audience feels more for her because it seems like Adrian has won with all of his carefully pre-meditated antics. 

The Final Revenge

When Cecilia’s in the mental hospital because everyone thinks she’s completely lost her mind, she gets a visit from Adrian’s brother, who drops a bomb on her. He tells her that Adrian switched her placebo birth control pills and she could be pregnant!

At this point, could you imagine being pregnant with the seed of a psychotic, abusive man? 

His brother tells her that she should consider going back to Adrian because he’s not dead! Ultimately, she agrees to meet with him, only to give him a taste of his own medicine!

She plays the victim and cries a bit to excuse herself to the restroom where she secretly puts on the invisible suit. Can you believe she comes back out and slices his throat, goes back to take the suit off, and then perfectly positions herself to scream in disbelief in front of the cameras? 

Oh, and the police were outside. 

Smart girl. 

She got the money and her freedom, even though she lost her sister. 

Love Thrillers, But Hate the Anxiety It Brings? 

Some of us love scary movies of all sorts. However, the intense emotions that some films bestow is a little much for some people. 

Besides, who says your stomach has to be tied in knots the entire time?

Some people want to watch thrillers without the added anxiety that the jump scares bring to the table. 

We bet you didn’t know that CBD pairs exceptionally well with scary movies and thrillers because the compound encourages full-body relaxation—making it the perfect product that’ll lighten the mood when needed. 

Sure, specific product selection is up for debate because there are so many amazing products on the market, but CBD capsules give you all the CBD you need to kick back and enjoy whatever comes your way. 

Even if it’s a psycho, abusive husband who created an invisible suit to torture his wife!

4 Things We Can’t Wait to See in the Next Phase of the MCU

Superheroes may have been big business at the box office for a number of years now, but 2019 has the comic book movie genre undoubtedly reach all-new heights.

Avengers: Endgame eventually managed to unseat Avatar to become the highest-grossing movie of all-time at the end of July, with the moment undoubtedly highlighting how Marvel Studios has become an absolute blockbuster powerhouse. Of course, one obvious question has been raised by that level of success – just how do you go about topping it?

Plans for the future

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has certainly been left in an intriguing position.

After all, Endgame is likely to prove to be the swansong for a host of characters who have anchored Marvel Studios movies in recent years. Without getting into spoilers that includes Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, although Spider-Man: Far From Home certainly offered up a tantalising glimpse as to how the latter’s position as a genius inventor and one of the richest characters from fiction could mean he still has an influence on proceedings to come.

However, it is fair to say the departure of a few key players does open the MCU up to some fresh blood and the recent announcements made at Comic-Con in San Diego certainly highlight that there are plenty of plans for the future. Here, we look at just a few of the things we are most excited about.

1. Finally, a Black Widow movie

While Natasha Romanoff has featured in a raft of the MCU’s best-loved blockbusters, she has had to wait a long time for her own moment in the spotlight. Scarlett Johansson has been a lynchpin of the franchise and she thoroughly deserves to be put front and center in a standalone adventure.

2. A new Blade

Wesley Snipes has become synonymous with Blade through the years and it was always clear that a big name would be needed if the character was ever to be rebooted. Well, Marvel has really pulled it out of the bag in style with the casting of Mahershala Ali and even his predecessor can’t wait to see him in action.

3. Portman becomes Thor

Natalie Portman did not have a great deal to do in the first two Thor films and then she was overlooked entirely when the God of Thunder went cosmic in the brilliant Ragnarok. However, she looks set to play a pivotal role in the series’ fourth outing, as she is intriguingly set to become Mighty Thor in the movie.

4. Will The Eternals be a success?

Marvel has a strong history of introducing its lesser-known characters to the big screen with major success, but can they pull the trick off once again with The Eternals? The big-name cast including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry and Richard Madden could certainly help the movie’s cause.

Plenty to look forward to

There is so much to look forward to in the next phase of the MCU and we haven’t even touched upon the slate of TV shows that are being made or the big-screen debut of Shang-Chi and the eagerly anticipated Doctor Strange sequel.

Marvel Studios is arguably at the top of its game right now and it will be fascinating to see whether these adventures will help them keep it going for years to come.

Book Review “The Art of Toy Story 4”

“Toy Story” is a franchise that started Pixar and continues to win the hearts of audiences over 20 years. With the recent release of the latest installment, “Toy Story 4”, that means a new art of book has been released. I still have my “The Art of Toy Story 3” and was just looking through it recently, which is still one of my favorites. This book dives right into the movie and behind-the-scenes content including great concept art, landscapes and character development over the film’s development. If you are of fan of these book and the “Toy Story” franchise, I would definitely recommend checking this out!

Official Synopsis: With a story that’s spanned more than 20 years, the adventures of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the gang have captured the hearts of millions. The Art of Toy Story 4 invites readers to explore the next installment of Pixar’s beloved franchise through never-before-seen concept art, character studies, process animation, storyboards, colorscripts, and more. Featuring exclusive interviews with the production team on the making of the film and insights into their creative vision, The Art of Toy Story 4 reveals the vivid imagination that brought this story to life.

“The Art of Toy Story 4” kicks off with a solid introduction from Josh Cooley, who actually directed “Toy Story 4”. Josh also directed “Riley’s First Date”, which was a short film following the film “Inside Out”. He also worked as a story artist on the Academy Award®-winning films The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Up, and Golden Globe®-winning Cars, and served as the story supervisor on Academy Award®-winning Inside Out. I personally was a bigger fan of “Toy Story 3” in terms of favorite films in the franchise but I do feel like he gives a lot of heart to “Toy Story 4” and delivers a solid film.

Pages 108-109 John Lee, digital painting [Buzz at amusement park]

Closing out the book there is a great foreword from the incomparable Annie Potts, who voices ‘Bo Peep’ in “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2”, and returns in “Toy Story 4”. She has appeared in numerous feature films including the “Ghostbusters” franchise, Pretty in Pink, and Corvette Summer for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination. I enjoyed this foreword and it is a great ending to the book given great insight into the role and her involvement with the film. Overall the book is another hit for Chronicle Books, they have been extremely consistent with their “Art of” books and never disappoint.

4 Things You Need To Know About New Recreational Marijuana Trends In 2019

The cannabis industry is growing. In fact, many states have legalized cannabis and its bi-products because lawmakers have begun to understand its importance. Many are using it for medical or recreational reasons. However, due to the controversy that follows the substance, many more states are still deliberating on the issue. As a result, the cannabis business is booming, with companies innovating products from cannabis.

1) More Women Using Weed

Unlike in the previous years, the percentage of women taking marijuana is increasing rapidly. Research and countries legalizing cannabis have contributed to the increase. With companies like Badass Glass online headshop, smoking has become more fun. They have a variety of beautiful glassware like bongs and glass rigs that make smoking more comfortable. Unlike the traditional way of smoking, when using products like car carp, you look more elegant and fashionable. It is enticing for many people to try a new experience. Women understand the importance of CBD products and health effects. They are also buying the beauty products made up of the CBD. More women will start using weed.

2) Building Beverages Boom

As countries continue to legalize marijuana, there is quite some research on cannabis beverages. Some companies are using THC since it can dissolve easily in alcohol. Some are also trying it in other drinks like juice and soda. Last year the product was launched in the MJBIz conference. It was meant to allow people to use cannabis when taking the usual beverages. People are looking forward to having a new experience with cannabis. Currently, people smoke bhang, but soon, people will have more options. They will either smoke or use cannabis drinking. Because of the health benefits, many people might prefer cannabis beverage. They will take a break from caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco. The alcohol companies have an interest in cannabis. It is likely to outdo the alcohol business with the invention of cannabis liquid.

3) Use of CBD Product

CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. You can get the CBD chemical compound in marijuana. Unlike in the past, many companies are making products from CBD. Do not be shocked if you buy some chocolate and gums made from CBD. Companies are also using it to make beauty products such as creams, bathing soaps, and oil. Some use it in beverages such as coffee and beer. It is also used to treat some pets. The significant benefits of using CBD in products are the management of anxiety, depression, and pain. It helps to lessen the tension in the people who have schizophrenia or psychosis. It is also useful in the treatment of epilepsy. It is used in beauty products since it can heal acne.

4) Products That Target the Outcome

For so long, many countries have illegalized cannabis for long. Despite that, so many people are flocking in dispensaries seeking for cannabis products. Many people expect the youths to be the only people using weed. Currently, the old and most especially the women are the primary customers. Due to the increasing demand, marketers are busy looking for products that will give a specific sensation. The cannabis industry will continue growing as the sectors continue making more cannabis products.

You don’t want to hire a 50 seater bus and yet you’ll be carrying 20 people since the renting cost will be higher or hire a 33 seater bus yet you have a group of 50 people with you. Determine the right capacity before hiring the party bus.

2.    Know The Cost

The cost of hiring a party bus will cut across several areas. The company renting you the bus will most likely charge you on an hourly basis. It’s important therefore to know the total time span you’ll have the bus with you.

Other charges that you may incur include gratuity to the party bus driver, taxes, and other costs such as fuel or parking fees at your target destination depending on the terms of the agreement.

Defining these costs earlier in advance will help you raise the money to rent the bus more so if you are sharing the cost with the people who you’ll be going with to the celebration of life service.

3.    Know Your Destination

You’ll definitely be driving off on the party bus to a specified destination or several destinations. It is advisable that you map out these destinations earlier in advance and discuss them with the rental company.

They’ll be able to advise you on which bus best suits your needs in terms of flexibility moving around, comfort, safety, and speed in getting to the various destinations. It also helps the rental company to prepare the bus driver in advance on the routes which will be more convenient to use.

4.    Comfort And Entertainment

Your main purpose for renting the party bus is to celebrate a life. As such, entertainment is a necessity to crown the whole agenda of the day. You’ll want to rent a bus with good looks to start with. The bus should have some class and glamor with comfortable seats and enough room for everyone to pump up and have some fun.

Music is a must-have. You want a bus with a good music system. Satellite television is also a plus to have on the bus for those who would want to watch, say, a game. Entertainment also comes with refreshments such as drinks and snacks. You can organize for these with the rental company.

Conclusion

There you have it. These four tips will guide you as you seek to rent a good party bus. If you’re not sure which rental company to approach, here’s one with the best party bus rentals.
