This MTV Board Game Is Here to Test Your Musical Knowledge

This MTV Board Game Is Here to Test Your Musical Knowledge

If you’re patiently waiting for the MTV VMAs to air on August 30, we have something that might make the time pass faster and give you something to do with friends and family during quarantine.

Big Potato’s brand-new game for music lovers called “MTV, The Throwback Music Party Game” is here to test your musical knowledge. 

“Switch over to a music party game for adults and teens that’s filled with all the biggest hits from the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. It’s time for a blast from the past, specially made for the MTV generation,” the game description reads. 

In order to play, you must break up into to separate teams and get ready to go through your whole musical catalog! 

To win the game, you have to be the first team to collect all the awards from the eight categories: The Brits, Award-Winning Videos, Best of Unplugged, Pop Anthems, Hip Hop Hits, Headbangers, Teenage Angst, and Queens of MTV.

There are a few rounds including the “quick-fire buzzer round,” which requires one member from each team to face off head-to-head as they try to think of a song that fits the description of their specific category in 15-seconds.

The first person to run out of time loses this round, giving the winning team an advantage into the Artist Round.

There’s also an “artist round,” that requires your team to guess three songs in 30 seconds. You can give clues using one word, speaking the lyrics, or belting out the song at full volume. 

The game is suitable for all ages, but I think those who grew up watching MTV, Total Request Live, and all the award shows will strike gold! 

If you want your MTV, the game retails for $20 at Target, but you have to wait a bit because it’s currently “sold out.”

You’re Going to Want These Festive ‘Elf’ Coffee Creamers When the Holidays Roll Around

Published

Elf Inspired Coffee Creamer Coming to Sweeten the Holidays

If you think it’s too soon to talk about Christmas in July, you’re right. But how am I not supposed to talk about Christmas when International Delight just announced that’s its preparing to unleash the best new item for the holiday season: Elf-inspired coffee creamer!

The Instagram account @candyhunting gave followers a sneak peak at the new creamer. 

The Elf packaging envelops three different flavors.

The yellowish bottle will feature the new flavor, caramel waffle cookie. 

Seasonal favorite peppermint mocha will be available in the red bottle. 

And lastly, frosted sugar cookie will be at your disposable in the green bottle.

“These are already starting to hit shelves, so be on the lookout,” Candy Hunting wrote in the caption of the post: “Huge thanks to International Delight’s PR group for sending the creamers!”

You know it’s serious when we haven’t even passed Halloween and yet people are scavenging for holiday coffee creamers to add to their iced coffee. 

You would think that since the flavors are inspired by the 2003 hit film, the flavors would be a bit more on-par with Buddy’s taste buds. 

One comment even pointed out the huge oversight on the company’s part writing: “What an opportunity for maple syrup and they didn’t take it!” 

While it makes sense, I doubt the flavor would go over too well with the general public. Though, no judgement if you’re into that sorta thing.

Another user referenced a classic line in the film with the comment: “I wonder if these make the world’s best cup of coffee.” 

Which one do you want to try eventually when the holiday season rolls around?

And…. is it too early to curl up on the couch and watch Elf? Asking for a friend, obviously.

15 Shows That Give You Major Wanderlust

Published

on


During my trip to Mexico last year, a waiter at a Spanish restaurant started questioning me about my hometown of Chicago. From there, he began asking if I’d ever been to New York or Las Vegas and wanted to know what these cities were like because he’d “only seen them on TV.”
 
His statement struck me because, in an age where wanderlust is so real, it didn’t occur to me that some people never had the opportunity to venture outside of their hometowns. Some people weren’t as fortunate as I was to whip out a passport and go anywhere; some only saw the rest of the world through television shows.
 
In fact, I’ve traveled to many cities — DC, New Orleans, LA, to name a few — simply because I’d fallen in love with how they were portrayed on my favorite show. I loved feeling like I was on set with my favorite characters or experiencing a taste of their lifestyle. 
 
In the wake of coronavirus when traveling has become limited and almost impossible with many border closures, this list of show locations that have inspired me to travel hits a bit differently. It’s almost like a “bucket list” of places I’d love to check out once the pandemic is finally over and we can return to our normal lives.
 
Some locations and popular and immediately recognizable, so much so that they even have dedicated tours of their picturesque filming locations. Others fly a little more under the radar, but are so beautiful, you don’t even need the magic of films and television to fall in love!
 
Did you ever travel anywhere after finding inspiration from a TV show? Let us know in the comments!  

 

1. Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones

If you want to live like a Westerosi — without the gory battles, of course — listen up. Game of Thrones uses some of the most beautiful places in the world as their backdrop. The medieval look is very much alive in Europe.

Sure, many scenes are shot inside, but those exterior shots are 100% real and can be found in places like Northern Ireland (Pyke), Iceland, Croatia and Malta (King’s Landing, Dorne, or Slaver’s Bay). Since so many fans travel to these locations for this very reason, you can easily find a map and plan out a whole “GOT-inspired” trip and possibly even recreate your favorite scenes.

 

2. Sex and the City

Sex and the City
New York City is synonymous with Sex and the City, but so many other shows use the city’s bustling and lavish personality. Gossip Girl, Will & Grace, The Bold Type, and Broad City have all given us an idea of what the Big Apple, and surrounding neighborhoods like the Bronx and Brooklyn, are all about. Fans are so inspired, they often make pit stops in front of Carrie Bradshaw’s house and take fashionable photos on the Met Gala steps just like Blair Waldorf.

3. Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies
You’ve probably never even heard of Monterey, but after watching Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley sip on coffee at Old Fisherman’s Wharf (in reality, it is an Italian and Seafood restaurant called Paluca Trattoria) and run at Lovers Point Beach, it’s most likely on your list of “places to visit.” In fact, you were probably already convinced by the scenery from the Bixby Creek Bridge in the opening credits.

4. Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey
The period drama revolves around staff at Downtown Abbey in 20th century England. Though you can’t travel back in time, you can visit the UK to check out the family’s Georgian Country House and the lush grounds and gardens. Grab some crumpets and tea while you are there, and maybe even bring a fancy umbrella to shield you from the scorching sun!
 
Mediavine

5. Portlandia

Portlandia
If you are after a quirky and cool city, look no further than Portlandia. The series highlights and then underlines the eccentricity of the city by focusing on the charming intricacies like bookstores, concert venues, and chic eateries. I bet you can get some delicious hipster coffee and take some wicked Instagram photos during your trip, so add don’t exclude this one from your bucket list.

6. Outlander

Outlander
Though you can’t travel to 18th century Scotland, you can still travel present-day Scotland, which is just as picturesque thanks to all of the historical buildings. Add 14-century Doune Castle (Castle Leoch), 15th-century Blackness Castle (Fort William), and Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison) to your itinerary, and you’ll feel like you’re a main character in the supernatural historical romance.
 
Mediavine

7. The Originals

The Originals

The Original vampires call New Orleans home and utilize every corner of the ancient city. The backdrop plays an important role in supernatural terms, but it’s also visually stunning. I traveled to NOLA because I fell in love with it as it was portrayed on the series, and as I was walking through the French Quarter, I felt the spirit of the ancestors taking hold and vampires breathing down my neck. True story.

Sadly, it wasn’t a pristinely dressed Mikealson. To really get the full experience, stay at The Hotel Royal (Marcel’s place of residence), stop by St. Louis Cathedral (known as St. Anne’s on the series), visit Lafayette Cemetary, and hit up a voodoo shop with hopes of casually running into Freya.

 

8. Hawaii Five-0

Hawaii Five-0
If you have to fight crime, why not do it on the sunny beaches of Hawaii? Let’s just hope your vacation is more relaxing than what you often see on the show. If you’re a super fan, there’s actually a guided tour that leads you to iconic attractions from the series like the Hawaii Five-O headquarters and Punchbowl. They even recreate some memorable scenes!
 

9. The Affair

The Affair

Montauk is labeled as the Hamptons without the crowd which makes it the perfect place for an affair. The scenery in this show is so vivid, you can almost taste the water and you’ve probably found yourself looking at hotels on multiple occasions.

It’s a good thing it’s also a fantastic beach getaway with plenty of water activities, boutique shops and restaurants. Affair fans can specifically check out Turtle Cove, The Montauk Playhouse Community Center and the Viking Dock.

10. The Chicago Trilogy

The Chicago Triology
Dick Wolf brought a whole series of Chicago shows to NBC, and if that isn’t enough to make you want to travel to the Windy City, I don’t know what is. You have to look past all the crime highlighted in the episodes to find the real beauty in the bustling city lined with skyscrapers! If you ever roll through, you can check out Cinespace which is the lot where all the shows, including Empire, are filmed. Also add Grant Park, Navy Pier, Molly’s Bar (Lottie’s Pub in real life), and PD’s District 21 (UIC Police Headquarters).
 
 

11. Scandal

Scandal
If you are a fan of Scandal, you’ve probably wanted to power strut all over DC in a peacoat and Louboutins like power player Olivia Pope. Yes, I know most of it is filmed in LA, but I’ll shamelessly admit that the ABC show inspired me to take a weekend getaway to DC. And in the midst of emulating Liv’s power prance all over town, I actually fell in love with the city and all of its political history.

12. Timeless

Timeless
Sadly, you cannot actually travel back in time, but this series really makes you want to build your own time machine and see history unravel before your eyes. Just remember, you can always travel to all of the destinations the Lifeboat takes them to, just in the present day. Don’t forget to check out some of the historical monuments and sights that have been preserved throughout time!
