To My Best Friends And Lollapalooza

I'm not really one for crowds. I'm not really one for hundreds of thousands of people in one place, pushing and shoving, screaming and sweating. I'm not even really one for spending tons of money for things, ever (thanks college budget). But I am one for my best friends. And I'm definitely one for my best friends and I spending time together, especially at one of the greatest music festivals America's had the pleasure of hosting: Lollapalooza. So here's a thank you letter to my best friends at Lollapalooza -- I wouldn't have had half as much fun, or have done it, without you people.

If you've never been to Lollapalooza, you're missing out. If you've never been to Lollapalooza with your best friends, you're doing it wrong. Not only do you get a glimpse of some great music while running from one stage to another, headliner after headliner, but you get the chance to explore something so alive. I've heard the old saying "It's not where but who you're with that really matters..." but I think if who you're with matters, where you are is a bonus -- especially if it's Lolla. It's something else.

So thank you, best friends.

Thank you for helping me pick out an outfit I wouldn't completely sweat through. Thank you for planning the transportation, the hotel and everything in between. Thank you for taking trillions of pictures with me despite the quality of them. Thank you for holding my hand through the crowds and calming my mind when I couldn't. Thank you for exploring Grant Park, and Chicago as a whole with me. Thank you for eating cheap food with me -- and tons of it. Thank you for helping clean off all the dirt (...even if it meant handing me another tissue because our snot was black). Thank you for sharing every experience with me there, good and great.

And lastly, thank you to my best friends for giving me one of the best days of my life -- and I'll see you all be with you all there again next year to do it all over again.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
