Adele just celebrated her 29th birthday, but she also thought she’d get a head start on her older years. Why not, right?

On Friday, the singer posted a delightful ‘old lady’ themed photoshoot to Twitter, in which she looks strikingly like Catherine Tate’s “Nan” character. We are sure this is not a coincidence.


Can’t wait to see what wonders are in store for her 30th.

The Hunger Saint – Historical Fiction

The Hunger Saint by Olivia Kate Cerroneis about Ntoni, a twelve-year-old boy forced to labor in Sicily’s sulfur mines to support his family after his father’s untimely death.

Starting this week, you’ll be able to play the original ‘StarCraft’ for free

Well that was unexpected.

StarCraft is coming back. Not as a sequel or as yet another expansion for StarCraft II. Instead, Blizzard Entertainment is cooking up a remaster of the 1998 original, with a spruced up 4K resolution sheen and an assortment of modern contrivances aimed at making it easier to play a 20-year-old game in 2017.

The re-release, titled StarCraft Remastered, will launch this summer. Functionally, it’s meant to be the game you remember none of the rules, mechanics, or any of the stuff that made StarCraft the gold standard of the real-time strategy genre will change.

It’s just going to look better. And sound better...

Why I (And So Many Other Moms) Suffer From Dinnerphobia

The time is usually around 4:45 in the afternoon, in cities and towns all across the country, when, almost like clockwork, theres a universal shift in consciousness that happens in the psyche of mothers in kitchens everywhere.

It usually starts sometime after our kids get home from school, as the afternoon starts to wane, and the high from their granola bar and string cheese has worn off.

Its then that we become acutely aware of the position of the sun in the sky, and start obsessing about the inevitability that is dinnertime.

This is when things get dicey and moms everywhere start feeling the telltale symptoms of the daily phobia that grips most of us every weekday afternoon...

How to make slime: The sticky world of teen slimers

As an early 2000s tween, I used to spend countless hours watching Nickelodeon’s Slime Time Live and dreaming fervently of the day I could bathe in fluorescent green goop on live television. There was something about the way the slime lookedharmless but almost glowing, untouched in a giant vatthat made you want to jump right in. Their noses may be buried in their phones, but teens and tweens today, it seems, are still reallyinto this idea. But theyve found a more sophisticated, profitable way to obsess over gooey substances: Welcome to the strange, internet drama-fueled world of DIY slime.

The 30 Day Challenge Each Zodiac Sign Needs To Take In Order To Live Beautifully

Aries: Watch a movie each day challenge

Netflix is great, but how about expanding your knowledge and inspiration for the next 30 days with a movie marathon? A friend of mine took this challenge while he was studying to become an actor and spent a couple minutes each morning reviewing the film he watched the night before. This proved an excellent exercise to access not only great art, but also to nurture his curiosity, to enhance his thinking and to learn amazing pick-up lines (my point exactly). Make a list of the films youve always wanted to watch and never had the chance to, subscribe to local cinemas to stay informed about premieres or offer to host some movie nights at your place for your friends and their cinema aficionado acquaintances...
