Cold and flu season is upon us -- hopefully, you're as prepared as possible. But getting the flu shot, washing your hands, and using sanitizing wipes can only go so far, especially with flu viruses being able to survive on surfaces for up to 48 hours. One of the best ways to keep your body healthy and strong enough to fight off viruses is by strengthening it from the inside. To do this, you should consume foods and drinks that have immune-boosting qualities. So to keep you healthy this cold and flu season, here are a few foods and drinks that can help give your immune system a much-needed boost.
2018 has been a pretty good year for holiday music thus far, but one thing we haven't heard much of is stuff on the heavier, more bizarre side of the spectrum. That should change on December 7th when <PIG> mastermind RAYMOND WATTS and regular collaborator EDEN release BLACK MASS - what they're calling "an unholy trinity of festive filth" - covers of holiday classics by John Lennon, Elvis Presley and WHAM!
Watts said the following: "I wanted to pay homage to the great Christmas songs, have fun with them but also take a stand against the ever rising tide of toxic bigotry in this increasingly brutal world while remembering there is a better part of ourselves. 'Happy Christmas (War Is Over)' in particular represents this whatever your beliefs may or may not be. 'Last Christmas' while being a great song from the irreplaceable George Michael (who left us two years ago this Christmas) also represents the fleeting nature of 'the season of goodwill'. 'Blue Christmas' resonates with anyone who is separated from a loved one at this time of year, whatever the reason, war zone or weather (and who doesn't want a go at being the King?) To that end these songs stand as an honour guard from the Lord of Lard."
BLACK MASS will be available for free download via Bandcamp, though a minimum donation is appreciated, with all proceeds going to INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE.
<PIG> most recently lit up the internet this past summer with a cover of KC & The Sunshine Band's 1975 hit, "That's the Way (I Like It)" featuring Sasha Grey.
SpongeBob, Sandy and their “Science Scout” troop take a trip to the moon in a brand-new holiday special of SpongeBob SquarePants, premiering Sunday, Nov. 25, at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
In “SpaceBob MerryPants,” Sandy leads the scouts through space for scientific exploration, where SpongeBob finds life exists in the form of a krabby patty, Sandy studies the moon’s gravitational effect on nuts and Squidward goes to the dark side. After an explosive mishap with a Jack-in-the-Box, the troop is left in an astronomical situation, where they luckily find the one person who can help them out, the big man himself…Santa Claus! Check out a preview below!
This week, news hit the wires that General Mills has launched a search for talent in hopes of bringing their famed "Monster Cereals" characters to life on-screen. The cereals have been a breakfast staple for decades, and as the new "Work With the Monsters" website points out, they've been on the fringes of Hollywood since the 60s - but they've never had a big break of their own. Recent years have seen the Monsters enter the toy departments through licensing agreements with Mattel's Hot Wheels brand, Funko, and even Big G Creative for this year's excellent Monster Crunch Game. Now it's finally time to take things to the next level, and that means that I need to remind the folks at General Mills about something: I have the winning pitch. In fact, back in 2015, General Mills' Kevin Hunt invited me to call in and record a bit for the Monster Cereals episode of the A Taste of General Mills Podcast, and in this 2012 article I first mentioned publicly that I'd been sitting on a treatment for a General Mills Monsters movie - one that could easily be adapted into a binge-worthy television series.
