Don't see your favorite band? Keep looking! There are still bands working on getting in the lineup.
Just over ten years ago, there was this band at the Warped Tour. They weren't even playing, but they were walking around introducing themselves to everyone and selling their CD. They were the happiest, sweetest, most positive guys, and you couldn't help but fall in love with them and hand over your money.
When their debut album 'A Lesson in Romantics' hit the airwaves, it was literally like magic. Every person who heard them couldn't stop listening. Their gut-wrenching lyrics and intensely beautiful sound worked its way right into you, took hold, and ten years later still won't let go.
Last night, Mayday Parade hit the Portland stop of the ten year anniversary tour along with Knuckle Puck, a pop punk band from Chicago, and Milestones, a pop-punk band who joined the tour all the way from England, and not one of them disappointed.
Milestones walked out on that stage and warmed up the crowd with ease. Knuckle Puck...well, the crowd went wild, and I was in t…
Amazon is the go-to one-click-shopping site for many people all over the world, and if you're looking for that last minute one-of-a-kind gift, they have got you covered. You are just a few clicks away from having your own radioactive sample of uranium shipped right to your door.
Now, I don't know what actually comes in this little canister, or whether or not you should also order iodine tablets just in case, but I do know that I laughed until I nearly peed myself while reading the customer reviews.
It does come with its own certificate of authenticity, so I can only imagine that this isn't something you want to purchase for your toddler's teething pleasure, and according to the seller, you cannot use it to power your DeLorean to get back in time, but many people are using it to power submarines to look for extinct dinosaurs, and one buyer has created some sort of bird eating roses.
This one is for all you diabolical villains hell bent on taking over the world. Do ta…
