You May Not Know The Faim, But They Have Big Things Coming

The Faim is a band you may not have heard of before. But, let me tell you, this four-person alternative band from Perth, Australia is about to become well known. The Faim has big things coming.

From touring with bands such as Lower Than Atlantis to collaborating with some of the music industry's biggest artists, including 5 Seconds of Summer's own Ashton Irwin, this band already has many opportunities under its belt. The Faim has a bright future ahead.

During the weekend that just passed, The Faim had slots at one of the UK's biggest music festivals, Reading & Leeds. Playing to a crowd full of people, the band's energized performance failed to disappoint. Everyone was jumping along as lead singer Josh Raven poured his heart and soul into his singing.

Bassist Stephen Beerkens gave his all as he multi-tasked in his usual form, switching from piano to bass and vice versa. Drummer Sean Tighe always gives his best performance, evidently highlighting this at Leeds, when he posted on his Instagram story that he had made himself bleed while performing. This energized drummer duly demonstrates the drive these boys have.

Friend of the band, Sam Tye, stepped in for guitarist Michael Bono while he dealt with some personal issues. Sam also gave his all, demonstrating the passion that holds this band together — and he did this while rocking some seriously yellow socks!

When it comes to upbeat songs accompanied by flawless melodies, the members of The Faim definitely know what they are doing. Great tunes, including "A Million Stars," got the crowd amped up and ready to go, while slower songs, like "Make Believe," provided the crowd with a roller coaster of emotions and passion which is present in their Instagram post which can be seen below.

This band really does give their everything as they perform, providing an empathetic atmosphere surrounding their songs.

The Faim evidently enjoyed this experience, too, posting on their Instagram: "we can't wait to come back."

If you are interested in checking out these guys performance at Reading and what they got up to, check out their Instagram post below.

The passion this band has really is astounding. If you feel like checking them out, do not hesitate to do so. Their debut EP, "Summer Is A Curse," will be released on September 7, so mark your calendars. Big things are coming for this talented band!

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
