Commercials have a way of popularizing songs that would otherwise only be heard by the respective fan base of the artist or group. The best commercials contain songs that can easily get stuck in your head and have you humming the tune for weeks, which will result in you googling the song. This was exactly the case for the Alaskan punk band Portugal. The Man, with their hit song “Feel it Still.” The song can be heard in many commercials including a 2017 iPad pro commercial, a 2017 VitaminWater commercial featuring Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, and a 2018 Cadillac commercial. I first heard the “Feel it Still” track on a commercial and after seeing it once, I couldn’t get the catchy tune out of my head all day.

When looking at art it’s easy to consider the evolution of creative expression. There are various forms, techniques, and periods. However, like most artistry, they are all influenced by one another. Subjective art has the ability to elicit emotions no matter if it is positively or negatively perceived. Many art traditions evolve and grow while still remaining as a medium among present-day creatives. This is applicable to the work of Georgia artist, Leigh Ann Culver, who has more than a decade of experience in creating distinctive pieces of art.

One of the biggest names in hip-hop for the last 25 years is one that you may not hear as often as you should. As long as I've been hearing his name, it wasn't until 2010 that I was able to put a face with the name. I had a roommate in college that was a Texas music head, and schooled me on some of the tall tales and the story behind who really ran the south. We're talking about a man who's partly responsible for finding such legendary acts as Scarface, UGK, and Do Or Die. That guy is J Prince, the godfather of the Houston rap scene.

Fashion is one of the simplest ways to introduce yourself. It makes a statement and leaves an impression whether you are wearing bold prints, muted shades, or dazzling jewels. It tells people who you are, or who you want to be. Actress Gabrielle Union utilized fashion in the same way—to make an introduction. While Union is already a well known celebrity for her numerous acting roles, she recently launched a fashion line with New York & Company called The Gabrielle Union Collection. Centered on everyday looks, Union told BET that she wanted to create something inspired by her “day to day life” and her “actual, real closet.” Union tailored a line around what she likes, what she wears, and what she genuinely uses, thus introducing herself as a designer who creates pieces that anyone can wear.

Sexual harassment, assault, and abuse happens everyday, thousands of times over. In America alone, someone is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds, according to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. Once thought of as a taboo topic, something to be whispered away and kept as a secret, is now being openly discussed between men and women who have been mistreated. At one time it was deemed weak to admit that one had been sexually assaulted, but just recently this idea has changed. It is now a bold declaration of courage. This is all thanks to two simple words—#MeToo.
