It is 2017 and it is just beginning, but the year of movies is ahead of us in a big way. From Marvel to DC to Indie films premiering at Sundance, it is only just beginning. Still, those are the films we are expected to see all over social media and Twitter. We, as watchers, are expecting all these films to come out; but, the ones we are not expecting are the gems we rarely see until they are buried in Netflix. At that moment is when we realize how wonderful they actually were and are gutted we missed the premiere of them.

Let’s not do that this time. The film, "An Addicting Picture" (CineProductions) is all the mystery, drama and twists you need from a singular film. There are no sequels, no brainwashing, they are real mystery, drama and twist plots. Something we do not genuinely see very often in film. They all came unquestionably natural to the big screen, that was no problem for this dynamic cast.

From the dynamic cast to the amazing make-up artists, to Jacob N. Stuart directing and writing the whole shindig with the help of Puja Pandey, what more could a film watcher want?

I suppose you might want some more information about why you should check this film out...

This film is the definition of minimalism; if you are looking for a simple setting with insane twists, you got it. This film takes place in one location, with only eight or nine characters and minimal, if at all, special effects. As much as we are fans of our action movies, it is about time a simple film with a solid plot was in the making. A film that will not require us to have a forced gasp moment, every second of every scene. That is getting tiring to foreshadow most of the gasp moments in a film. The placement is just perfect in An Addicting Picture, nothing is forced, nothing is misplaced.

What makes this film unlike any other is the use of having one setting in Chicago, one place in time, a downtown penthouse (top floor), and fantastic actors to rely on to make that one setting perfect.

Stars such as Sarah Jeanette Taylor and Michael Herman are starring in this film and cinematographer, Tom Dallis is also a part of this astonishing team.


If you are looking for a film that is excellent, with the fantastic work of actors who did perfectly then, once again, this is it. An Addicting Picture will have you addicted to a picture and by the time you know it, you might solve the twist at the end yourself. That is... if you look closely.

If you want to look closely at this film, they are all over the internet. You can check out Stuart and Pandey’s new film An Addicting Picture on Twitter, Facebook, and IMDB.

The film is currently in post-production and expected to premiere this spring. You can watch the trailer below for a sneak peak at the mysterious twisty drama instilled in An Addicting Picture.

But we still say Roll MF Tide!

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

media.giphy.com

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

media.giphy.com

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

media.giphy.com

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

media.giphy.com

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

media.giphy.com

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

media.giphy.com

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

media.giphy.com

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

media.giphy.com

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you. 

media.giphy.com

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
