There's something about the holidays that puts a lot of us here at TheFW into extra crafty moods. Maybe it's all those awesome Etsy decorations we so wish we could copy or just the fact we're feeling particularly festive this time of year. Either way, trying to get all creatively crafty is just plain old fun.
For most of us here in the good ol' USA, winter means cold, cold weather. While a lot of the time that can really stink, it can also mean the arrival of snow, and we all know that's the best part of the wintry months! Snow angels are possible, intense snowball fights happen and (probably most importantly) snowmen can be made.
Take any food, deep fry it or add some bacon, and you've got us hooked. There's really nothing better than a nasty, greasy mess or extra meat strips to really make our testosterone sing. Think about it-- would you eat raw turkey testicles? Probably not. What about fried turkey testicles? Solid maybe. There are rare moments, however, when these two perfect cooking tactics combine to make an insane creation. This is one of those moments.
Even though Santa has an awesome job, it can be super stressful at times. Sure he's a jolly ol' guy who gives out presents for a living, but when Christmas Eve rolls around, things can get really tricky. If you think about it, the guy has to pull off delivering like, millions and millions of presents to people all around the world, so of course Santa needs to relax a bit post-Christmas. You know-- hop in the jaccuzi, get a massage or down a couple dozen chocolate chip cookies while the elves give him a manicure.
However, there are times Santa goes a little overboard with this whole "relaxing" thing, and he knocks back a few too many drinks (and we're not talking about milk). Basically, the guy gets extra, extra tipsy. He ends up passing out on sidewalks, subways and even right next to the Christmas tree. Who know Saint Nick was such a party animal?
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to get into full-on turkey mode. After all, it's never too early to loosen up the ol' belt buckle to ready ourselves for Thursday's feasting. While we're getting totally hyped about eating tons of stuffing and gravy and pumpkin pie, we still feel like the holiday prep could use a little extra oomph, and that's where Turkey Day music comes in.
Ever since news broke that Disney purchased Lucasfilm, AKA the 'Star Wars' franchise, tons of Disney-meets-Star-Wars art has hit the net. It's not only really cool, the art also helps us to picture what it'll be like when the sci-fi franchise is immersed in cartoon land.
Happy Halloween all you Halloweeners! Aside from the whole boatloads of candy thing, there are two awesome things we're excited about today: it's socially acceptable to dress up like a disgustingly gruesome zombie in public, and we get to nerd out over jack-o-lanterns. Could it get much better?! Surprisingly, yes.
Covering Hurricane Sandy has proven to be quite a feat. It's difficult to keep up with all the information pouring into the newsrooms, but who gets to experience the brunt of it all? Reporters. Poor, poor reporters.
Whisky is a man’s game. Kicking back with a glass is a testament to our manhood, but it doesn’t seem like the stuff gets enough credit. That is until recently. It sounds like the testosterone-laced drink is finally gaining well-deserved attention these days, and we have some Scottish drunkards to thank.
