Hobo Johnson & The Lovemakers is a band from California. You can describe their music as hip-hop, or maybe hip-hop mixed with folk-punk. But really, no labels can represent what their music truly is. It is inspiring and sad, hopeful and full of despair. Hobo Johnson's music is an amazing representation of true life.

Some people can be turned off by the yelling within their music, but I believe it makes it that much more authentic. No matter what you think about Hobo Johnson, they have proven they're not going away anytime soon. As their current tour continues to sell out at many venues and their videos on YouTube and Facebook keep climbing in views, Hobo Johnson continues to spread their truthfulness and positivity across the globe.

1. "Romeo & Juliet"

"I'm sure that I've prepared you for every guy you'll date, and every guy you'll marry, and every guy you'll hate."

"I brush the bangs behind her lovely little ear, as she describes in detail how the end is truly near. Wow, and I'm sure that we can do this for forever or until we drink the poison, 'cause she sees some cloudy weather."

"In my dreams, my kids are happy and I know that they won't mind one Christmas."

"In my memory, I can hear Chopin's nocturnes playing in the background. A slow trainwreck, you'll close your eyes but forever hear the sound, and boy, it's tough cause that's the sound of people falling out of love."

2. "Demarcus Cousins & Ashley"

"I love you like the stars love lonely eyes on seven consecutive Friday nights... I love you like my dad loved my mom before they realized they don't love each other at all!"

"I love you like the bird hates November or just really really rainy windy weather. I love you like America loves to f*** things up and cops love to do things, that is super unnecessary! Really look into the real history America has f****** caused a lot of problems for the general world."

3. "Father"

"He told me son beware, of the monsters that roam the depths of your head. Sometimes they'll make you real sad or real real mad, or real real jealous and that's real real bad."

"Boy breathe nicotine until you fall asleep like all of our family."

"My father's married to a shape-shifting monster who can sometimes take the form of a really really really nice woman and although it seems super f****** frightening sometimes this scary monster makes a really really great vanilla pudding."

4. "Creve Coeur 1"

"Hi, says the girl with the right eyes that pairs pretty well when she hits you with the soft smile. You can kind of tell that something's going on but she's like a Skrillex song that never drops, she'll never talk. She'll never talk about the feelings that she felt today, better kept it inside of a fence, inside of a cage, inside of a safe that's safe for her cause they, they just hurt and she don't know why that God has sauntered."

"Hold me closely, I don't think you should love me. I always feel so lonely knowing that nothing lasts forever."

5. "The Ending"

"She said, 'You're like the weird guy in all the movies, who turns into the hero at the end and gets the girl' and I was like, 'Shut your mouth.'"

"I'm gonna take over your heart as soon as I get the balls to try. Imma re-arrange the alphabet and then take 'U' and 'I' and put a bit of space between 'em and hope that nobody cries."

"Your life isn't fair. Life is like a fair that only lets in white people with blue eyes and blond hair and big tits and small waists. Let's cut-paste the same face, the same smile, the same type that's been stuck here for a while."

6. "Jesus Christ"

"Momma, I've been feeling so alone. Mommy said she's busy working, spending time with that other guy. But Momma, I just wanna come home. 'But home is where your heart is, boy, at least you've got a phone.'"

"And father, I just don't know what to make, you know of all these tiny specks with so much shit to f****** say. And father, I just hope that we don't fall apart and break it'd be great if we didn't relive 1938 to '45."

"Jesus Christ, you're super nice I'm sure that you could love me even if I don't go to church every Sunday. Jesus Christ, you're super nice, how could you let me burn?"

7. "Sex in the City"

"But if you're beautiful from birth, do you really have the courage of a woman picked on for her girth? Ever since she was a kid — and you know how kids work, up until she was a full-grown adult."

"So I'm not a baby maker looker, but maybe I am to a woman that really loves me for who I am."

"Hey missus, could you take me to a world where nothing else exists except the contents of our soul and there we'll talk... or y'know Instagram DM works too."

8. "3%"

"They said it's a three-percent chance that I'm gonna make it. That's a little bit less than what it is in my mind but it's ok, I think I can take it."

"But I think that they'll love me even if my soul is tainted and ugly. Tainted enough where no one should ever want stuff from me but I'm lucky, lovely people say such nice things for no reason."

9. "Peach Scone"

"Oh, you got a man? Are you in love? If so, what type? Is it just platonic, strictly just as friends or the type that ties you two together 'til tomorrow's end? If it is, disregard every time I call you pretty though it's meant sincerely it's just my imagination drifting. Brush me off like the dirt on Jay-Z's shoulders so I fall to ground, collect myself and get ready to take over your heart...or at least your spare time."

"Man, I love the thought of being with you or maybe it's the thought of not being so alone. I don't know, the second one's way sadder than the first one but, I don't know..."

When I first heard "Peach Scone," I was in a pretty rough place in my relationship. "Maybe it's the thought of not being so alone," helped me get through the craziness that I was in as well as my breakup afterward. As I continued to listen to his music, I used it to help heal. You can feel the pain in his voice, especially in the live sessions. I believe his music can also help start a conversation in mental health or general emotional health. These things that he discusses are either directly or indirectly truly issues in today's society, such as people not treating others as humans and general dismissal of other people's points of view. Hobo Johnson's music is honest in a kind way and something that this world really needs, especially nowadays when tension across the world is high.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

88641

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.

- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences.

7 Reasons 'Hubie Halloween' Is A Must-Watch Halloween Film For October Movie Nights

Just knowing it's an Adam Sandler movie, you can assume it's funny but very ridiculous.

2343
Netflix

"Hubie Halloween" was just released on October 7. It follows Hubie Dubois in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween. He patrols the town to make sure people are safe. He's the kindest and caring person in the town and also the most bullied.

This poor man is scared of everything. He screams when he sees scary decorations and when people prank him. Definitely a laugh, but when I watched it, I felt bad for him. The one person that pulled at my heartstrings is Violet Valentine, a woman he had a crush on since high school. She's super nice to him and stands up for him when she can. It was great seeing someone, other than his grandma, on Hubie's side.
