Liam Gallagher's "As It Was" Was Everything It Should Have Been And More

Who loves to wear parkas, always sings with his arms behind his back, and excessively uses the phrase "do you know what I mean?" The one and only Liam Gallagher.

Liam Gallagher is a legendary front-man who first emerged to the music scene in the 90s in the revolutionary rock band, Oasis.

Gallagher recently released "As It Was." From bad headlines and heartbreak to family reconnections and new albums, the documentary gives fans a look into his life over the past 10 years through a microscopic lens.

"As It Was" kicks off with an emotional start, taking fans back to the exact moment that Oasis split. Shortly after the Oasis split, a band that he has been for nearly 20 years, Gallagher went through a divorce with his wife, Nicole Appleton. Gallagher fell into a dark place. The media did not make any of it easy for Gallagher as they kept making nasty headlines and didn't give him any personal space.

Hoping to find himself again, Gallagher returned to the music scene in his new band Beady Eye. Although the new English rock band had its fair share of success, Beady Eye was not the light Gallagher was desperately seeking through his dark times. In 2014, Gallagher announced that Beady Eye has disbanded.

Unable to find true happiness after the split of Oasis and the end of his marriage, Gallagher disappeared from the public eye.

Fast-forwarding to three years later, Gallagher releases his first solo album "As You Are" in 2017, and is able to find himself again.

One of the most admirable factors of "As It Was," is the portrayal of Gallagher. It shows a side of him that the have tabloids failed to acknowledge.

The film included the emotional moments of Gallagher's tribute performances for the Manchester Arena bombing victims. Gallagher lit a candle on his stage for each victim of the shooting and despite the fact that he had a concert in Germany earlier, he took a flight out on his private jet to make sure he was in attendance of the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

Gallagher's soft side was shown in his interactions with his family and his fans. Gallagher seemingly has a lot of love in his heart for his family, especially his mother, his wife, and his children.

Gallagher also has a soft spot for fans. Before his performance at a gig, Gallagher met a group of young fans and when he learned that they didn't have tickets to his show, he wrote down their names so they can see him perform.

Overall, "As It Was" is a raw film that makes you grow a deeper appreciation for Gallagher. You grow a deeper appreciation for his strength, his craft, his talent and who he is as a person.

One certainly does not have to be a die-hard Oasis fan to enjoy this film. It is a film that is enjoyable for all, even those who have never heard of Liam Gallagher before.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
