SPOTTED: Ben & Jerry’s Change is Brewing Ice Cream

This flavor features cold brew coffee ice cream, marshmallow swirls, and fudge brownies. More specifically, its coffee comes from BLK & Bold, a black-owned coffee company in Des Moines, Iowa. The brownies come from Greyston Bakery, which has been baking brownies for Ben & Jerry’s for years.

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 2 NFL Predictions

Welcome to 2021 Week 2 of the NFL season as things kicked off with a bang. Last week was bad, but it could have been much worse with my predictions. My record was 5-4, which falls way short on my quest to have at least a 70% winning percentage. The big shockers on Sunday had to be the Saints dominate the Packers for starters. The other one saw the Arizona Cardinals decimate the Tennessee Titans. On Monday, we saw one of, if not the best game when the Raiders beat the Ravens in OT. We will kick...

Dear Evan Hansen Star Ben Platt On Donning The Blue Polo Again 6 Years Later [Interview]

When "Dear Evan Hansen" opened on Broadway in 2016, it was met with near-universal acclaim. The key word being "near," as the Tony-winning musical from Steven Levenson, and Benj Pasek and Justin Paul was also met with equally strong criticism about its handling of difficult issues like mental illness and suicide, and — most notably — with its depiction of its lead character, Evan Hansen.A teen suffering from severe social anxiety and a vaguely referenced mental illness, Evan Hansen is the accide...

Generation Canceled By HBO Max After Just One Season

Why can't we have nice things? Or at the very least, why can't they last longer? Earlier this year, we got a very nice thing in the form of the new HBO Max series "Generation" (stylized "Genera+ion"), an ensemble story about a group of high schoolers learning about life, love, and family in a conservative California community. For a grand total of 16 episodes (delivered in two eight-episode batches), "Generation" was pure, ambitious, chaotic fun. But now its time to bid the show an early goodbye...

Rockin’ The Suburbs Turns 20

The “Rockin’ The Suburbs” video was doing a lot. As the lead single and title track from Ben Folds’ debut solo album, the song established new parameters for Folds’ music following his three-album run at the head of North Carolina cult favorites Ben Folds Five. That band had been a strictly piano-bass-drums operation — an oddity within a ’90s alternative rock culture defined by guitars, though maybe less odd at a moment when shit like the swing revival was happening concurrently. (For further re...
