Ken Dolls Get A Makeover! They Now Have Man-Buns!

(PCM) We would very much like to file this story in the say it isn’t so category, however Mattel has revealed their new line of more modernized Ken dolls and they now feature everything from man-buns to dad bods! We hope Barbie enjoys the new looks a little better than we do, however we do agree that it was due time for her long-time boyfriend to get a little revamp. The Ken doll was first introduced back in 1961 and while the dolls have gone through a few changes over the years, none have been quite as drastic as this one. Well, maybe when he and Barbie broke-up back in 2004, but that is another story! The pair are definitely back on-again now and have been steady since 2011!

Mattel is trying to promote a more diverse look for Ken and the new dolls will be available in three different body types which are slim, broad and original and also feature seven different skin tones. Customers can also now choose between eight different hair colors, nine hair styles (including the dreaded man-bun) and clothing for the dolls ranges from athletic to business casual.

The newly redesigned Ken dolls are available now at toy retailers and the company claims that they will be unveiling five more Ken dolls before the end of the year. These new Ken dolls are part of Mattel’s Fashionistas line which also features redesigned Barbie dolls. The new line of Barbie dolls launched back in 2016 and feature more diverse body types, skin tones and hairstyles to further promote body positivity and inclusion for all young women.

In a statement regarding the new Ken dolls Mattel said, “We are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation”. What do you think of Ken’s new style? The internet is going crazy with comments with many just taking a few minutes to roast the “man-bun” Ken, but do you really blame them?

Ever Wonder What That Drawer Under Your Oven Is Really For?

(PCM) We seriously feel like the biggest idiots in the world right now! If you are anything like us then you have most likely noticed that large pull out drawer located under your kitchen oven and of course proceeded to fill it up with all the large baking sheets and pans that will not fit anywhere else the kitchen. Hey, more storage, right?  Wrong! That drawer actually serves a much more useful purpose that we didn’t even know!

Get ready for this ….

The drawer under your oven is actually a warming drawer! It is designed to keep your cooked hot foods at serving temperature until your guests arrive and you are ready to serve dinner. Well, who knew? We have seriously been using it for storage all this time! This is like a kitchen epiphany!

It is worth noting however that the warming drawer cannot be used to actually cook food, it is to be used with already hot food that came out of the cooking oven above. Cold or room-temperature food should not heated up or warmed in the drawer either.

Looks like we learn something new everyday! Go ahead and ask all your friends if they know that drawer is really used for, bet there will not be many who know the truth, but we have revealed it here! Happy warming, but we think we might just stick with the storage!

Parents Mistakenly Feed Their Children Dog Treats

(PCM) Parents who were shopping at the Pak n’ Save grocery store in New Zealand are freaking out because they mistakenly fed their children dog treats and are now blaming it on the packaging and store placement.

The parents, who were obviously in a hurry, ended up grabbing a box of Scooby Snacks, which are sausage flavored dog treats, without fully reading the box. The parents claim that the Scooby Snacks which are packaged in a brightly colored box with a picture of cartoon character Scooby Doo were places in the same aisle as the human snack food products.

We could see how this could get a little confusing, but seriously, it is clearly written on the bottom of the box “For Large Dogs”.  Guess they think that anything with bright packaging and cartoon character must certainly been for kids, right?

The parents ended up feeding the dog treats to their children and then posted on the Pak n’ Save Facebook page claiming they were mortified by the mistake and urged the store to please change the display. A spokesperson for Pak n’ Save commented saying, “On reflection, we can see how the cartoon characters on the packaging might be confusing. We apologize for any distress this has caused to anyone who bought the product by mistake and will happily offer a refund to any customer in this position.”

Word to the wise parents!  Read all packaging very carefully before just blinding handing out snacks to your children! Jinkies!

U2 Wow Philadelphia On The Joshua Tree Tour 2017

(TRR) After returning from such an epic live show experience it is hard to put into words just how amazing U2 are, especially when they are performing to a sold-out crowd at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. The band seriously never missed a beat from beginning to end and kept us completely captivated throughout their entire performance. Bono’s voice sounded amazing and The Edge, Larry and Adam were all perfectly on-point and sounding as fresh as ever.

It is hard to believe that it has been 30 years since the bands acclaimed album “The Joshua Tree” was released back in 1987. The songs that make up that album define a generation and still continue to speak volumes to listeners to this very day. When “The Joshua Tree” was first released it showcased the band’s fascination for the American landscape, its people, literature and myths. The band’s love affair with the continent still continues to ring true today. The band truly set out to showcase the journey of the American Dream and they more than succeeded.

To hear this album played live in it’s entirety from beginning to end was a dream come true for fans and it being paired with the stunning imagery from Dutch photographer, film-maker, and long term collaborator, Anton Corbijn was even more magical. Fans can recall that Corbijn’s iconic photography accompanied the original recording and he has now revisited Death Valley and Zabriskie Point – and other locations – to produce a new series of haunting and evocative films which feature in brilliant 8k resolution on a 200 x 45 ft cinematic screen behind the group in live performance. It is truly a sight to behold. In fact, the cinematic screen that U2 is using for this tour just so happens to be the largest hi-res LED video screen ever used in a touring show.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 will reach over 1.7 million fans with just 33 shows across North America and Europe throughout this summer and we were incredibly honored to be able to witness this incredible show in the City Of Brotherly Love! Hearing songs such as “Red Hill Mining Town” which has never been performed live prior to this tour was a real treat and “Bullet The Blue Sky” still continues to send shivers down my spine with The Edges searing guitar riffs and Bono’s haunting vocals.

U2 sandwiched the “Joshua Tree” album with a selection of other songs from their extensive catalog of hits as well. Fans were treated to an opening set which included “Sunday, Bloody Sunday”, “New Years Day”, “Bad” and “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” before the band launched into the “Joshua Tree” album. Then to close out the set, the band played an incredibly touching version of the song from Passengers “Miss Syria (Sarajevo)” which was paired with heart-wrenching video imagery captured by French artist J.R. at the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan, which is now the home of over 80,000 Syrians who were forced to flee their country.

Listening to the young, 15-year old, refugee speak about her hopes and dreams and ideas about America was enough to being tears to not only the eyes of this journalist, but the rest of the audience as well. While the band was performing the song a large satin sheet featuring the young girls image was passed hand to hand across the entire circumference of the stadium. It was truly one of the most beautiful concert moments we have ever had the pleasure to be a part of and something that will truly stay with us for quite some time.

Fans who have been paying close attention to the band’s setlist for the last several shows will note instead of playing “Ultra Violet (Light My Way), the band instead performed “Mysterious Ways” marking the current tour debut of the song.  Images of honorable and trail-blazing women were displayed across the video screen and showcased the ONE organizations on-going “Poverty is Sexist” campaign. The song and accompanying images drew cheers from the audience and before launching into the song Bono commented, “The world would be more balanced if women fulfilled our potential and theirs”. He praised both former Presidents Bush and Obama for their efforts to stop the AIDS crisis, however criticized President Trump for his budget cuts for AIDS relief funding saying, “I don’t know what party he is … he’s his own party, I guess.”

U2 ended their set with a string of hits including “One”, “Beautiful Day”, “Elevation” and “Vertigo” to close out this truly memorable evening with rock n’ roll royalty. Even if only for just one evening we were united as one and music’s unifying strength shone through brighter than ever.

Denver-based folk/pop band The Lumineers opened the show with their blend of catchy hum-worthy tunes. Their nearly hour long set included hit singles “Hey-Ho” and “Ophelia” which definitely got a rise out of the crowd many of who were still entering the stadium and by the end of their set front man Wesley Keith Schultz had the audience on their feet assisting him with singing along to the band’s latest single “Stubborn Love”.

Could You Work As A Nanny In A Supposedly Haunted House?

(PCM) A couple in Scotland who are in search of a nanny for their two young children ages five and seven are offering up an exorbitant salary for the position, however there is just one small catch! The house is allegedly haunted with some kind of poltergeist activity. In fact, the family has lost a whopping five nanny’s over the last year, who have all quit due to supernatural activity in the house. Don’t worry! None of them died as a result, but the house just freaked them out way too much.

The couple is offering to pay the brave new nanny $84,000 per year and currently have the position posted on a UK childcare job site. According to the posting the nanny would get to live in a “lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views” along with having her very own private bathroom and kitchen area. Her duties would include preparing breakfast, getting the children off to school and picking them back up, as well as, helping with homework and sending the children off to bed, and oh, yeah, dealing with some kind of supernatural entity that is allegedly residing in the home. You know, just the run of the mill nanny stuff!

The couple claims in the posting that they have lived in the house for nearly ten years and were told when they purchased the home that it was “haunted”. While the couple claims that they themselves haven’t experienced any supernatural phenomena, their five previous nanny’s quit saying they had experienced supernatural incidents in the home including furniture moving by itself, glasses breaking and odd noises.

The listing goes on to explain that the couple are incredibly busy professionals and work away from the home, sometimes for days at a time. During the time that the couple is away the nanny would have sole charge over running the household. Hmm.. being alone in a big house with only two children and a ghost, yeah, we will pass, but then again that paycheck does seem pretty good!

Bakery Creates Glow-in-the-Dark Donuts! The Perfect Late Night Snack!

Photo: Black Star Pastry

(PCM) An Australian bakery called Black Star Pastry has created the first glow-in-the-dark donuts, at least we have never seen anything quite like these before! And of course they have named them “glonuts” which is too perfect! When you first get a glimpse of these “glonuts” you may feel that they look like some kind of weird science experiment, however the folks at Black Star Pastry assure consumers that the donuts are 100% safe to eat.

It is vitamin B that gives the donuts their fluorescent color and the glaze is called yuzu glaze. The bakery claims that vitamin B itself can be a bit on the tart side, so the yuzu glaze has a bit of a tart taste as well.  For those that may not know, Yuzu is a type of citrus fruit.

We couldn’t even imagine waking up in the middle of the night and stumbling into our darkened kitchen in search of a midnight snacking and finding these glorious treats waiting for us! It would almost be too good to eat, key word almost! Unfortunately for us here in the U.S. these “glonuts” are only available in Australia, however many are already trying to copy the recipe at home and gives these bad boys a try!

Here’s to hoping we can get our hands on some soon!

New York Bar Sets Up A Self-Service Beer ATM

(PCM) The Randolph Beer located in Brooklyn has come up with an ingenious way to save bartenders a lot to time and aggravation by installing a Beer ATM. The bar which is located in Williamburg, will now feature a wall showcasing a variety of craft beers that will be all self-service. Customers can pour their own beers from a tap whenever they choose.

If you were wondering just how this works, and trust us, it is not by the honor system, the customer hands the bartender on duty their credit card and they are then provided with a another card that they swipe at the Beer ATM which logs in the number of beers they consume that evening. They would then cash out with the bartender at the end of the night. The beer wall even has a function that allows users to decided if they want a 1 ounce taste of the beer variety or a full 12 ounce beer to consume. You then hold the correct size glass to the dispenser and enjoy as much as you choose all evening. It’s that simple.

Randolph Beer has 24 different varieties of craft beer to choose from and half of them are from local New York City breweries. Each variety is properly labeled with name, brewer, country of origin, alcohol percentage, and flavor. You can watch a video of the Beer ATM in action below:

Concert Review: Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot! San Diego June 7, 2017

Words and photos by: Johnnie Crow

(TRR) Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot! kicked off on June 7, 2017 at the outdoor Humphrey’s By The Bay in San Diego, California. Set amongst the palm trees and sail boats of the San Diego Bay, Humphrey’s is the perfect intimate venue for experiencing high quality entertainment and this was no exception.

Brian Setzer is celebrating the 35th anniversary of hitting it big with the Stray Cats Built for Speed album, for which he is most famously known. But his catalog is so much more than that, filled with songs inspired from the 1950’s, as well as some well known covers.

On this tour, the orchestra is left behind, and in its place a tight 4 piece band featuring Mark Winchester on stand-up bass, Noah Levy on drums and Kevin McKendree on piano and guitar. This high energy band had the adoring crowd dancing and singing along the entire night. Everybody in the building spent the evening with a smile on their face.

Would You Believe Some People Really Think Chocolate Milk Comes From Brown Cows?

(PCM) As hard as it is to believe, a recent study sadly reveals that an alarming number of individuals still believe that chocolate milk comes from actual brown cows. Seriously! One thousand Americans were surveyed by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy and the results were absolutely shocking, as they learned that 48% of the individuals survey literally had no idea where or how chocolate milk is created.

Could we really be suffering from that much of a lack of solid education in this country? Perhaps people are just so distracted by technology, as well as, highly processed food that they fail to realize that what they are consuming is not natural and have forgotten all about actual nature. Now that is a truly terrifying thought!

The study was initially conducted to survey the ways in which American’s consume dairy products on a day to day basis, but many of the answers led to some quite surprising results and what was even more shocking is that this survey was conducted on adults, not children.

According to the study, a whopping 7% of those surveyed answered that they wholeheartedly believed that chocolate milk came directly from brown cows. It is hard to fathom where these adults were getting misinformed, but chances are pop culture had a lot to do with it, as brown cows are featured in the video game Farmville and when you search Google for ‘Where does chocolate milk come from’ the first suggestion is brown cows!

Scary stuff! But just to set the record straight, chocolate milk absolutely does not come from brown cows. Brown cows supply the same white milk as any other type of cow, which is then flavored with chocolate syrup or powder to give us our delicious chocolate-flavored milk.
