DZ Fest is an amazing DIY festival held annually in Hickory Hills, a southwest suburb of Chicago. The two-day long music and arts festival features prominent bands from Chicago and the greater Midwest. The Fest is unlike any other, catering to local talent with 2 stages and 40 bands playing a backyard show in the wooded suburbs.

DZ Fest is the product of artist, musician, and audio engineer Ben Arguelles who runs the recording studio DZ Records out of his home. In addition to being a recording studio, DZ Records also functions as a music venue and home base for the podcast Friends with Music (a podcast featuring live music and interviews with local and international bands). Ben is assisted by a team of volunteers, from audio engineers to musicians, photographers, and videographers who passionately believe in promoting music and building a community.

DZ Fest is a musical event you do not want to miss! In addition to the live music, DZ Fest features an extensive merchandise tent where each band will have music for sale in addition to special, limited edition DZ merch. DZ also promotes the visual arts. Artists from all over will have their artwork available at DZ Fest and all profits will go directly to the selling artists. DZ Fest draws a crowd, so you can expect a visitation by Henry's Tacos available by food truck on the street. They have you covered for all-day comfort, free water bottles will be provided for everyone and porta-potties will be available for attendees to use.

This year is special in that the DZ film crew will be filming/photographing for the DZ Fest 2017 documentary.

(Please note by entering DZ Fest, you are allowing yourself to be filmed/photographed by the crew).

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

1. "AHH...Stahhp. I coulda dropped mah croissant"

2. "Nate how are those chicken strips?" "F%#K YA CHICKEN STRIPS.....F%#K ya chicken strips!"

15. "Two brooss chillin in a hot tub 5 feet apart cuz they're not gay"

15 Students You're Unfortunately Going To Run Into

This is one wild place.
211
views

High school is basically the weirdest place in the world. It's an influx of all of the humanity's best, worst, and in-between. And while there's no way to predict for sure all of the freaks you'll meet, here's just 15 you either know or will know.


1. The Stoners


Some of them are problematic; some of them aren't. They're quite the wide range, but they always have a dead look in their eyes, make a lot of inappropriate jokes and like to play card games.

2. The Geeks

Put your second generation Macbook Pro-Gameboy fusion away, Daniel. No one wants to watch Naruto with you.

3. Football Players

At my school, we used to have a dance studio. It's been turned into a weight room, but they kept the mirrors. So now every time you pass the room, it smells like sweat and testosterone while shirtless guys stare at themselves, flexing to prove their heterosexuality.

4. Every Other Sport

We get it, you're tired, and you hate your coach. If you hate it so much, quit. But you won't because if you do then you won't have anything to complain about to others.

5. Hype Beasts

No, I will not scream at this pep rally because I do not care about school spirit. Go away, I have a headache.

6. Vape Nation

While I thank you for smelling like candy or fruit as opposed to smelling like a chemical fire like the stoners, please stop juuling in the bathroom; I just want to pee.

7. AP Students

Sweetie, please take a nap and have some green tea, you're stressing me out. See number one for more help on relaxing.

8. Freshman

If you're a freshman and you're thinking, "Oh, I'm not that bad!" then trust me. You are. Someday you'll look back on yourself during these times and wish you were never born.

9. Phone Ninjas

Often football players or hype beasts, these people have their phones surgically attached to their hands and somehow never get caught.

10. Teacher's Pet

Buddy, literally everyone but the teacher is perfectly aware that you're just mooching for a better grade or for your phone back.

11. Kinky Kids

No, I would not like to hear about your weekend. Go sit with someone else before I catch something.

12. Theater Kids

Stop screaming at me to buy tickets to see you play the That One Background Character in the school play. I don't even know you.

13. The Orchestra Kids

They constantly feel like their under attack, and they're not entirely wrong. Need to see number one to relax as well.

14. Band Kids

Like orchestra Kids except way more annoying and permanently stuck in the freshman phase.

15. Has Their Own Car And Everyone Knows It

Hey buddy, you're 10 minutes late, and you have Chik-Fil-A. It doesn't take a genius to put two and two together.
