Football season is in full swing and you want to gather up a few friends to go with, why not throw a pre-game party before the main event, right in the parking lot! It might sound overwhelming thinking of using only the tailgate of your truck or car, but with some tips and tricks we have you covered, from the menu down to the spot selection for your vehicle to make sure you host the perfect tailgate party!

For an easy and low-stress menu, bacon-wrapped cheese-stuffed hotdogs are the delicious way to go. This will be easy to pull off in a parking lot and most of the work can be done at home. Instead of having a boring hotdog, stuffing it with cheddar cheese and adding that extra meat (who doesn’t love bacon?) will keep it interesting. Make sure the hotdogs are prepared by slicing each down the center and inserting a cheddar cheese stick. You can then wrap the bacon around the hotdog to make sure the cheese stick stays inside the hotdog. Add a toothpick to hold the bacon in place to keep it looking put together. Store them in the fridge and take them with you on the day of the game!

For instructions on how to cook it on the grill during the party, follow these easy instructions:

Another nice side dish to accompany the hotdogs that can also be prepped easily at home the night before is macaroni and cheese! This version of mac n cheese will require even less time and effort because no baking is required.  The elbow macaroni should be cooked in a pot (follow instructions on infographic). While that is happening, you can cook the sauce in the mean time. In another pot, add oil and butter and cook over medium heat. For about 3 minutes, whisk in flour and stir. Then  you can add milk and cheddar cheese while whisking (make sure you mix until it turns into a light brown.) Lastly add salt, pepper, dry mustard and chili powder to the mixture and continue stirring. Once cooked, add the mac ‘n’ cheese into an aluminum tin and cover it. Store this in the fridge and you’re ready to pull it out the next day for your party.

So now that you have your meal prepared and ready to go, what about everything you must pack in your car? First, stay organized and make sure you don’t forget anything by creating a checklist! You will need a grill, some charcoal, lighter, folding tables/chairs, napkins, eating utensils, grilling utensils, cooler with ice for drinks, bottle opener, speakers for music, trash bags and finally, your game tickets!

 

Checklist For Tailgating

You should go early enough to get a good parking spot and in case you are expecting some rain, opt for parking next to a tree. Also, since you know people will be enjoying different drinks and beverages make sure you’re not parked too far or too close from a port-a-potty!

The first thing you should do to get started is turn on the grill when you’ve arrived. Make sure you bring some newspaper with you to put underneath a full charcoal chimney and light it up with a lighter. The coals can be dumped onto one of the grill after 10 minutes.

For directions on how to heat the macaroni and cheese, follow instructions on infographic below:

Once the food is off the grill, make sure the fire is out and close all the vents. Don’t wait until the last minute to roll your charcoal container over to the hot charcoal drum to dump them, because it takes around 25 minutes for the grill to cool off before you pack it back into your car or truck. You want to make sure you have enough time to pack and clean everything up before you go watch the game!

Hilary Clinton Meme

The Dude —  November 3, 2016

To paraphrase Charlie Chaplin, it’s either laugh or cry.

As America races breathlessly to the finish line of an election that has swung from disheartening to exhilarating to downright nausea inducing, the troubled nation has reached to the soothing balm of comedy to ease its electoral fever.

Late night and web comics have feasted off an embarrassment of comedy riches this cycle, with one candidate living up to his background in reality television, and the other tripping up on her own awkward secrecy, while attempting to become cool.

Setting aside the most famous orange haircut since carrot top, which has its own universe of dank fuel for chuckles, let’s take a look at some of the best funny memes surrounding the first woman nominated by a major party to run for president.

A fairly typical Hilary Clinton meme might consist of an unflattering, or borderline freakish, image of her face, combined with a blank slam of her or her supporters.

The vast majority of the Hilary meme market is intensely negative, which is, perhaps, to be expected from the internet in a free country holding a spicy election contest.

In a worse offense though, the attacks are often blunt and witless, lacking the nuance and slice of true satire. A Hilary Clinton meme that approaches genuine hilarity appears to be something of a rare bird.

In an effort to address this market failing, we have curated a selection of the top thirteen respectable entries in the Hillary Clinton meme genre. They range from supportive to apoplectic, but share a unifying theme in that they are actually funny in some way, and they get to the heart of what we think about our candidate.

1. The Terminator

 Image Source: www.i1.kym-cdn.com

Early in the campaign there was a side by side meme comparing Bernie Sanders to Clinton. This example from that subgenre speaks to our perception of Hillary as eerily controlled, much the way we saw Mitt Romney, or, for a brief, sputtery moment, Marco Rubio.

2. Textual Healing

hillary-clinton-meme-22
Image Source: www.fullredneck.com

Solid wordplay gets to the truth-bending soul-bond between Mr. and Mrs. Clinton that enrages opponents and makes even allies uncomfortable.

3. All In The Game

egp3jhetx6euwbhpcul0_unnamed-2

Image Source: www.p.fod4.com
This pic perfectly pings Hillary’s technological woes, while weaving in a contempo, urban patois that plays to the image of Hillary as a gangster, which is fun, once again, for both fans and detractors.4. Stonecuttershc6-w710-h473-2x
  Image Source: www.pixel.nymag.com

In Clinton world, it’s always about triangulation. A sensible method to promote technocracy? Or symbolic homage to the cult that rules the world?This meme pokes fun at the web of conspiracy theories surrounding Clinton and Obama, perhaps with an extra cheeky boost from the fact that Hillary herself once alluded to a vast conspiracy aligned against her.

5. Likable Enough?

 Image Source: www.pbs.twimg.com

A wordless wonder, this girl’s face says it all.Can she trust this loudly laughing person with five hundred rocks on her necklace? Is this lady for real?The glance of a child summed up the skepticism of a nation.

6. Your New Empire

Is the recent rise of Daenerys and Cercei completely a coincidence?

7. Gamegirl

Nothing changes, nothing stays the same.

8. Obama: Text Buddy

fdb848aa05125bab311322f28125b85b

Someday the Obama presidential library may display historic emoji chats.

9. Aunt Hillary Wants You

hillary-clinton-breakfast-club-interview-reactions-00

A great picture is a great picture. If you’re looking for a starting place for a meme of your own, consider this.

10. Baller And Chains

mmmh1

There’s no denying the Clinton foundation has saved and improved lives all over the world. Along the way, the Clintons have grown wealthy.This meme meet these ends neatly, with more awkward body language for comedic impact.

11. Is This Forever?

Image Source: www.i.imgflip.com

Playing to our hopes and fears of impending technological immortality, this meme asks the question: Could Hillary be the future of our race?

12. Tweeny Bopper

im-not-kidding-maddie-shining-meme

 Image Source: www.lolworthy.com
Hillary’s mojo with millennials has been famously mild. The day the candidate danced the “Nay Nay” on Ellen, she earned this meme like a badge.

13. You Can’t Handle The Truth

hillary-lies-750

This one wins.For the candidate who answered the question “Have you always told the truth?” with the words “I’ve always tried to,” this hits the nail on the head.Her gloriously uncomfortable posture, combined with her sharp, almost laser, eyes, sums up the Hillary experience: she may be effortlessly brilliant in many domains, but casual earnest immediacy is not among them.Perhaps it’s because she really is a sinister monster out to enslave humanity. Perhaps it’s the product of a lifetime in the public service spotlight, where every word is weighed and measured by millions.Entirely regardless, and quite aside from weighty questions concerning the future of Earth, Hillary has for thirty years been a focus of American conversation.The way things look right now, we might be laughing at her awkwardness, pondering her agenda, and, as we do with every public figure, seeing parts of ourselves in her persona for years yet to come.

As we gaze forward to the twenty twenties, let’s take a last glance back for nineties nostalgia, with one non Hillary Clinton meme:

What Is No Shave November ?

The Dude —  October 28, 2016
download
Image Source:www.no-shave.org

November is a masculine month of the year and not just because it’s football season and time for deer hunting. November 1st is when guys are supposed to stop shaving and let their facial hair grow! The No Shave November movement has caught on with men of all age groups and continues to grow every year.

What is No Shave November For?

No Shave November was developed as a way to raise money for men’s health awareness. The idea is that as men get hairier through the month of November, people will question why they aren’t shaving. The men will then be able to spread the word about the many organizations raising money for men’s health research. One such organization, No-Shave November, is working to raise money for cancer research in partnership with American Cancer Society, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. They suggest that men donate any money they are saving by not having to purchase shaving supplies to their organization.For most men, the best part about No Shave November is trying to outgrow their buddy’s beards. The challenge and the camaraderie associated with the movement is what motivates them to participate.

No Shave November Rules

The No Shave November rules are straightforward:

  • Shave your face on October 31.
  • Continue growing all facial hair through the month of November.
  • Depending on your social circle, trimming and touch-ups may not be allowed. Go for the backwoodsman look!

How to Grow A Beard

Image Source:www.quora.com

There are many methods you can try to help grow your beard faster. Much of hair growth depends on genetics but to try and hurry things along, keep these tips in mind:

  • Wash your face. Hair grows best on clean skin.
  • Use a moisturizer with eucalyptus. This oil is said to nourish hair and help with the itch that can accompany growing a beard.
  • Reduce stress as much as possible through exercise and getting enough sleep. According to Beardaholic, “exercising will improve the circulation of the blood in the body, which will help to promote facial hair growth.”
  • Eat your protein; it’s said to help encourage hair growth. It grows your muscles, so this has to be true!
  • Take a Biotin supplement. Also known as Vitamin H, it is known to keep your skin and hair healthy.
  • Don’t groom it! Resist the temptation to cut or trim it until 4-6 weeks so it has time to fully grow in. Then, you can play around with the shape and style to fill any patchiness or go for a different look.

Beard Styles

Not every style of beard will look great on every guy. Take into account the shape of your face, the features of your face that you want to stand out and any features you want to cover up or at least draw eyes away from. Razor manufacturer, Gillette, has some convenient videos to show men how to achieve the following different styles of beards based on their face shape.

For the square face:

4-week-beginner-workout-plan
Research indicates that regular short sessions of exercises make the perfect workout because they have numerous health benefits. Even if you cannot find time for a daily workout routine, there are several innovative and effective exercises including pushup workout and ab workouts that do not require much time to perform.

Neutral Back Exercises

You don’t need to get out of bed to try out back exercises. First, lie on your back and then heave your stomach in as you squeeze your abdominal muscles. Next, lean on your pelvis so that your back rests flat with no space between the back and the bed. Maintain this position until you start feeling some pain on your abdomen and then relax. This simple exercise can strengthen your back and relieve moderate back pain, especially if you feel tense, tired, and uncomfortable after work.

Get Fit At Work

Avoid sitting up in a straight posture and tightening your abs while sitting at the office. You will find that it is quite difficult to maintain the straight posture throughout the day. Consider using your core muscles to prevent slouching and reduce the risk of back muscle imbalance and pain. For more benefits and added challenge, swap your desk chair with an exercise ball for some time. The exercise ball will force you to sit up straight, which will encourage you to use your core muscles. This is one of the most effective ways to work out if you do not have time for regular visits to the gym. Always take the stairs.
Taking the stairs instead of the lift will give you the chance to work out while at work. It will also help improve your blood circulation. Focus on working your abdominal muscles by squeezing the muscles in your midsection and standing upright as you lift your knee in each step. Raising your legs higher with each step you take will help work your leg muscles more effectively. This exercise will not only work your leg muscles, but it will also work your abdominal muscles. It is important to keep your hands off the stair railing as you take the steps on the stairs. Make sure you balance with each step to maintain your stability.

Luggage and Suitcase Workout

Did you know that even traveling gives you a chance to work out? Well, carrying luggage is just one of the easiest ways to work out while traveling. However, it is important to maintain good posture, especially if you are carrying a messenger or duffel bag. Ensure that you wear the bag strap across your chest. This will help prevent you from leaning to either side. It will also ensure the stability of your body. Carrying luggage is one of the most effective shoulder workouts, back workouts, and leg workouts. Lifting luggage and putting them onto racks also helps to work out your abdominal and core muscles.

Spend Time with Your Kids

You are guaranteed a great deal of fun and opportunities for quick workouts as you play with your kid. Carry your child using both hands and then slightly bend your elbows. Gently swing his/her legs from side to side. This type of exercise will work your biceps and triceps and allow you to have some fun with your kid in the process.

Stand and Work

Believe it or not, your brain will work effectively and you will feel less fatigued if you stand as much as possible as you work or study. Take these “standing breaks” after short intervals. This exercise will help you burn 25% more calories. Ensure that you don’t lean over a desk or wall while standing. Activities that can give you an excuse to stand while working include writing notes using a clip board, reading, and answering phone calls. This type of exercise can help you burn significant amounts of calories with time.To get even more of a workout don’t drive to work.Park your car at a distant location from your workplace and walk all the way to work. The best distance will be a mile or two from your office. However, ensure that the location you choose is safe to walk and easy to find parking.

Phone Push Ups and Tricep Workouts

Try tricep and bicep workouts including, doing push-ups against your desk as you wait for an answer from the other end each time you make a phone call. If your phone does not have a speaker, use one hand to perform several one-armed push-ups. Alternate arms with each call you make.

Burn Calories

Avoid pastries during tea breaks and get out of the office to get some fresh air. Take a walk around the office block to refresh yourself mentally and physically. Walking at a speed of 4mph can help you burn 100 calories in just 15 minutes.

Pump Rubber

Have some resistance gym workout bands at work. These are stretchy resistance bands made of latex that work your muscles as if they are lifting weight. Step on the resistance bands and perform five minutes of lateral squats, shrugs, and upright rows while on an office break. Doing these small exercises will help re-energize your body.

Volunteer

Volunteer to carry or lift anything that needs to be moved. Move the old cartons filled with office supplies, the new printer, or change the water jug at the office cooler. Some of your colleagues might think you are wasting your time by carrying out duties that you are not supposed to perform, but in essence you will be helping yourself to workout.

Working out does not have to be a time consuming exercise. There are various ingenious ways to have the perfect workout without committing yourself to long workout sessions. However, be sure to warm down or stretch after your workouts.

 

new xbox

 

The new Xbox One S is finally here and already players are enjoying its boosted performance. It’s faster, slicker and bound to make all your current Xbox One gaming experiences feel a whole lot better. But what exactly is under the hood of the Xbox One S and how much better can this revised edition be for gamers?

 

SPEED & PERFORMANCE

 

It’s almost the flagship factor that’s talked about every time when the topic of the new boosted console is raised. There’s no doubt it’s quicker but in terms of actual spec the revamped console itself has managed to increase its GPU clock-speed from 853MHz up to 914MHz, a 7.1% increase. Coupled also with ESRAM bandwidth increases gamers can now enjoy 219GB/s up from its original 204GB/s. Now these might not seem like huge increases and sure there are certain games where you might not even notice the difference. But popular titles where graphic-intensive scenes of gaming action play out, such as in ‘Gears of War 4’, players are certainly noticing the improvements thanks to the bolstered hardware.

 

THE GAMING EXPERIENCE

 

With speed and power very much at the top of the agenda for this project from the Microsoft development team, it’s great to see that other elements of the gaming experience as a whole have been well considered. The new console supports both 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray™ and streaming which means that a lot of your existing Xbox games as well as downloadable content will be able to be up scaled to 4K resolution. There’s even a higher contrast ratio as well as the introduction of High Dynamic Range technology which helps improve the visual depth of the game you’re playing.

 

Games like Fallout 4 and Mortal Kombat will now look unreal! That is, if fans of the franchise, that features some of the coolest female fighters ever, buy the console. According to the results of the 14,000 strong poll initiated by Mortal Kombat X’s Director Ed Boon, only 7% will bother to pick up the console: Watch out Microsoft!

 

OPTIONS & ENHANCEMENTS


The new Xbox One S is available as a special edition 2TB model, with a lesser 500GB, 1TB edition to be released in the near future. The console comes in a new white coloured casing, although recent reports are stating that due to its popularity there could be quite a wait for a new batch of white consoles to be released. The console itself is 40% smaller than the standard One mostly thanks to some well-considered button moving and the dropping of the current external power supply. Even the Xbox One controller has had a bit of an overhaul which now features Bluetooth support as well as nice new and comfortable textured grips.

Real men know how to party well and they do not need a specific reason to do that either. Whether it is the big game tomorrow night or their bestie’s birthday, all they know is to have fun and party hard. Recently, I went to a birthday bash with my brother. It was his friend’s happy birthday party and one of the most happening night I have ever attended. From the ambiance to the cuisine and drinks, everything was just perfect to set you in the mood.

 

However, what did not understand was that the guys were not dressed for the occasion. They were dressed too casual for the event. These adrenaline-pumping moments take you away from the stress of your regular life and rejuvenate your body to face the world in a better way. I believe that the following men’s fashion articles are a must-have for all the party freaks.

 

  1. Graphic T-Shirt with denim: A bright colored graphic t-shirt with denim the simplest combination to be worn at any party. Well, every guy has a t-shirt which is bright, with a hearts or kisses or even floral print that will set the mood of the party. The best part about this combination is that you’ll feel comfortable and can enjoy to the best of your ability. You can wear accessories like a leather bracelet and casual shoes with the same. Make sure you wear low waist men’s underwear to prevent showing it to others.

 

  1. Coat suit and trousers: If you are someone who’s looking for a getaway from jeans pants, this is the best combination for you. A single-breasted coat will be able to keep you comfortable and looking different from the others. You can team it up with a contrast colored tee and a pair of Chino trousers or khakis. They are meant for the summer months and will not play any hindrance while you dance to the grooviest of the songs. This look will be your ideal one when you seek something casually formal.

  1. Floral Suit: Did someone just say that floral prints are for women? Hell no! If you are a fashion lover, you must know that floral prints are a must-have for every man this summer if you go with the trends. However, when it comes to incorporating something that is floral and very masculine (together), some men can go very wrong while doing it. Men who have a strong dressing sense with the ability to carry off the look with ease are the ones who should try them. Without going too loud and feminine, look up at a store with floral suits from which you can choose for yourself. One step wrong, the whole attire will come down, but if you take it right, you’ll be the fashion icon of the night my friend.

 

  1. Theme party looks: Well, this is my personal favorite and limited to the best friends group. When the mood is not to go anywhere and stay up all night having fun at home, themed parties are the best. You can dance till you drop and do whatever you want in those comfy and pieces. You can also have costumes like the ones available from brands like Candyman and Miami Jock. After all, it’s a guy party and you can have all the fun you want.

 

Are you planning a party with your friends? Do adopt a style from the above and you’d be rocking through the night.

Men’s fashion is definitely going places. From corporate powerhouse to street style, there are endless styles that they can adopt and totally nail them. The best part is that they don’t even have to be a pro in acing the fashion department. Inspired by these stylist men, these tips will give you a low-down on ‘looking like a million bucks’. Take a look:

  • Go through catalogs – Imagine buying an expensive shirt to work, only to find that the trend is straight out of last season! In a situation like this, your money gets wasted and you end up adding one more outfit to your wardrobe, in which you don’t want to be caught dead! A simple solution to this is to go through the latest catalogs of menswear. They are available easily and all you need to do, is to get hold of a few of them.

Another alternative is to browse through “lookbooks” available online, which will give you, your daily dose of the latest fashion trends for men. Make it a habit to go through the catalogs or lookbooks regularly to get an idea about various combinations to try, ways to wear different items of clothing and so on and so forth.

  • Don’t buy ill-fitting clothes (or shoes) – One of the basic mistakes that a lot of men make is to try and force-fit in jackets, suits, shirts, coats and even shoes. This is a strict no-no. Not only will the ill-fitting clothes make you feel uncomfortable, but also ruin the entire look.

If you are clueless about different kind of fits that you must try or how to buy an outfit that will fit you the best, you can always refer to fitting guides. Also, when you go shopping, don’t be in a hurry and make sure that you purchase clothes and shoes that are of the perfect size for you. Neither too small, nor too big.

  • Leave that comfort zone – Afraid to experiment with style? It is high time that you step out of your comfort zone and give your wardrobe a somewhat, if not complete, makeover. For instance, if you favor dark colored suits over light colored ones, then try buying the latter when you go shopping. In the same way, you can experiment with different prints and patterns, fabrics, cuts, colors and so on and so forth, which were never ‘your cup of tea’. With this step, you’ll realize that you too can carry off one of those looks that fashion models sport. Trust me, even a tiny change in your wardrobe is going to be worth it and you will be astonished at the results!
  • Never get rid of wardrobe essentials – Every guy should have some basic items of clothing in his wardrobe. In no particular order, these are –
  • Plain jeans, preferably dark in color.
  • A pair of khaki and olive green trousers.
  • A pair of gray, black and navy blue chinos.
  • White button-down shirts.
  • V-neck or crew neck sweaters.
  • A full suit.
  • Crew and V-neck t-shirts.
  • Leather shoes and belts.
  • A leather jacket.

On days when you are feeling particularly lazy and don’t want to spend much thought on what you are going to wear, these staples in your wardrobe will come to your rescue. After all, there is nothing that can beat classic style trends.

  • Wear the same thing differently – One of the most common tips that work for both men’s and women’s fashion is – wearing the same piece of the outfit in different ways. For instance, you can wear a well-fitted suit in more ways than you can imagine (and save some extra bucks). To begin with, choose from men’s bespoke suits and follow these pointers:
  • Wear the complete set of the suit and add a tie, a pocket square or both, to look dapper at any formal occasion.
  • Mix and match the suit with trouser from another suit. This way, you can wear all those expensive suits in your wardrobe on more than one occasion.
  • For a casual look, team up the suit with a crew cut t-shirt and sneakers.
  • A V-neck sweater over a button-down shirt is another combination that you can try with your favorite suit. Pair it up with Oxfords to complete the look.
  • A Polo shirt paired with your suit and a pair of jeans is the best outfit when you want to go for a semi-formal look.
  • Opt for a classic look with a white button-down shirt and jeans. Wear it with your suit and leather shoes. Don’t forget your favorite aviator sunglasses to complete the look!
  • Invest in good quality shoes – Shoes say a lot about your personality. This is the reason why, you need to invest in shoes that are of top-notch quality. Don’t settle for cheap fakes or rip-offs of top brands as they are made from materials that tend to wear and tear easily, leaving you in an embarrassing situation and making you buy more shoes year after year. Take your pick from some of the best shoes that should be a staple in your wardrobe.

  • Accessorize like a boss – Nothing speaks luxury like an elegant timepiece. It is a status symbol, and also, an heirloom. And because we are talking fashion here, investing in a wristwatch from one of the top watchmakers will make the outfit appear more elegant. The same can be said for other accessories, which may not be as expensive as the watch but are still an integral part of every man’s wardrobe. These include but are not limited to – ties, handkerchiefs, cufflinks, belts and even hats that complement the look.

To Conclude

Men’s fashion is getting the attention it deserves. This is a good time to experiment with your style and make the most of it and end up looking dapper every time. Cheers!
