Let’s face it—athletes will do anything to promote their brands. Whether they’re creating a unisex perfume fragrance with their significant other or starring in lame Subway commercials, there’s not a lot off-limits when it comes to athlete self-promotion and marketing. While all of these ploys are undoubtedly dumb, the one that gets me the most is the reality shows these guys are willing to be on, sacrificing their careers and, dare I say, manhood.
Hello, Texas State!
The highly anticipated third studio album from Mother Monster has finally leaked. By Sunday afternoon, Twitter was abuzz with excitement, tweeting approval of ARTPOP with excessive punctuation and excited emojis. Many Little Monsters were faced with a dilemma: to download or not? Spoiler alert: I did.
Lady Gaga, queen of the gays and the avant-garde, has declared ARTPOP to be a marriage between music and art. And by that she meant she was about to produce a colorful cocktail of jewels, drugs, love and fashion. So, of course, we had to listen.
Though the second weekend of the Austin City Limits music festival was cut short by unexpected flooding at Zilker Park, the event was filled with local food, loud music and thousands of dedicated fans.
The festival’s second weekend kick-off featured performances by Vampire Weekend, Fun. and Arctic Monkeys last Friday. The Zilker park grounds did not start filling up with guests until around 7 p.m. that night.
The festival took steps to ensure the safety of the park and its surrounding area. Plastic water bottles were not available for purchase at the park. Instead, CamelBak filling stations dotted the grounds and paper boxes of water were for sale. The park was kept clean and free of trash by the event’s staff, volunteers and festival patrons.
