Like almost everyone else in the world Joanna and Chip Gaines are staying at home these days, but they’re sharing some great recipes and family fun for everyone to participate in. Jo has started Quarantine Cooking on YouTube and oldest son Drake is serving as a videographer, editor and director.
Of course, the first episode is a quarantine must-have: chocolate chip cookies.
Hopefully, if you’re at home with kids during social distancing, the weather is nice where you are and you can get outside a little. But, if not, try some crafts! Ellen DeGeneres has teamed up with Laura from Scotch to teach kids how to make DIY puffy paint, a festive watermelon piñata, and an Ellen-themed gorilla bookmark.
Have you ever gotten into an argument with your friends over the greatest TV show of all-time? Was it “M*A*S*H?” Or maybe “Seinfeld?” Well, numbers don’t lie. YouTuber, Data is Beautiful, has taken weekly statistics from 1986 to 2019 and compiled them into a video to show the most popular shows by the numbers.
Though Sam Elliott has never won a major acting award, he has been nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and an EMMY. Not to mention, he’s one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood and his voice is recognizable from miles away.
Most recently, Elliott has taken his talents to the small screen to help Doritos introduce an updated Cool Ranch recipe. But, Elliott does it without even mentioning the chips. Instead, he recites a section of the GRAMMY-nominated hit song, “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X.
Wait. What? Yes, you read that correctly. Elliott walks into a bar in the commercial and eventually ends his monologue by saying, “can’t nobody tell me nothin’.”
It’s not every day that a songwriter can sit down and pen a classic hit that lives on to generation after generation. Some would argue that it would be even rarer for a songwriter to pen an original Christmas classic. Haven’t we said and sang everything there is to sing and say about Christmas?
Mariah Carey didn’t think so, which is why her hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has become a holiday classic. Penned in 1994, the song has sold over 16 million copies and is the 12th best-selling single of all-time (ever). It’s also the best-selling Christmas single of all-time.
So, how much money has songwriter Carey made from the tune over the last 25 years? $60 million.
The song recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time in 25 years and is featured in an Amazon mini-documentary, “Mariah Carey is Christmas: The Story of ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’.”
‘Tis the season for Christmas movies and we’re not talking about those manufactured Hallmark classic. We’re talking old school, leaving your kids at home (alone), bell ringin’, Santa Claus visitin’ Christmas movies.
Recently, we asked Field Agents to share their favorite Christmas movie with us and the results were varied and fun!
We’ve all seen them– the commercials where the husband surprises the wife with a new car and a giant bow on top. The commercial with the fleet of cars driving through the snow all topped with giant bows. But, where do those bows come from?
Willie Geist and “Sunday TODAY” got the bottom and top of those bows and where they come from. Turns out, it’s a California company literally called King Size Bows.
As an adult, have you ever put your winter coat on a few minutes too early and wandered around your house looking for your keys only to have a mild panic attack because you’re so hot in your winter coat? Right? That is how kids are all the time in their fancy winter clothes and coats.
Recently, “Saturday Night Live” spoofed a Macy’s commercial and it’s just… gold.
Who do you think the most famous person from your state is? You could ask five different people sitting next to you and probably get a different answer from each of them. For Arkansas, it’s definitely Bill Clinton, right? And Walmart. But, Walmart isn’t a person. Condé Nast Traveler recently asked 50 people from all 50 states who the most famous person from there state is and well, the answers were pretty interesting.
