Culture Movies & TV In the month of August, summer blockbuster season begins to wind down. The 2018 calendar was filled with comedies from Ocean's 8 to TAG and jam-packed action pictures from Ant-Man and the Wasp to Mission: Impossible—Fallout. Lionsgate, however, isn’t ready to conclude summer movie season just yet as it unveiled The Spy Who Dumped Me on Friday. The Spy Who Dumped Me stars Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. Directed by Susanna Fogel, the film follows Audrey (Kunis) as she discovers her ex-boyfriend, Drew (Theroux), is a spy.

If you’re Facebook friends with me or follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’d know about my dog, Tag. Sometimes I think I’m annoying people with all of my dog posts, but then I think to myself, ‘Tag is the cutest dog in the world, who could possibly be annoyed by excessive posts?” Answer – nobody. We got Tag from Southern Pine Animal Shelter here in Hattiesburg, and I definitely recommend everybody should do the same. Tag-a-long was his name and he was a shy eight-month old pup who was already house trained. We got lucky with him. I grew up with a yellow lab named Emma who was one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. Tag gives Emma a run for her money, that’s for sure. Other than a few growing pains when he was a puppy, which should be expected with any puppy, he’s been nothing short of an awesome companion. A man’s best friend, you could say. He even hops on the paddleboard with me when I’m on the lake. He’s … [Read more...] about Column: Thankful for life lessons from Tag the dog

When Instagram started prioritizing one account’s content over another, users and businesses … [Read more...] about Instagram Has Answered Your Questions About How Its Algorithm Works
Jump to a studio SoulCycle Flywheel Body Cycle Studio Upcycle CycleBar Revel Ride Huffing and puffing on a bicycle, inside a dark, windowless room — this did not sound like my idea of fun. Who would ever spend $30 to endure that torture? Yet, many people do — so many that the number of spin studios in the Philadelphia area is too long to count, with brand-new locales like South Street’s Revel Ride continuing to add to the options. What is a spin class? It’s a high-intensity cycling workout that takes place on a stationary bike and includes different body positions and resistance levels designed to mimic the outdoor activity. So, what magic do these workout classes hold that have allowed them to garner such a cult-like following? After reading one too many multi-paragraph-long Facebook posts from friend-quaintences in their post-workout glee, curiosity got the best of me. And so began my mission: Hit six … [Read more...] about Which Philly-area spin studio classes are worth the hype and heavy price tag?
