With party season almost upon us, there’s nothing worse than having to wait your turn for the bottle opener. This torturous wait has forced many a genius to find new and creative ways to open their beer bottle. From using the edge of a desk to a door lock or even one’s eye (actually saw this happen once), those old ways pale in comparison knowing that you and 23 of your closest pals can enjoy the fruits of your labour all at once with this 24-bottle opener. While imperfect (listen to those cheers), it’s still better than nothing and should be your next party staple.
The website Food Beast recently spotted this beer pong arcade games in Las Vegas. To that, all I have to say is: IS NOTHING SACRED THESE DAYS?!
Considering the game doesn’t provide you with alcohol, what’s the point of playing beer pong if you’re not getting drunk? Half the fun is knowing that your ability to aim gets worse (or better, considering how much more confident you become) with each drink. Then there’s knowing that there’s no one at the other end to heckle at. What about re-racking? Guarding rules?! WHY HAS THE FUN BEEN SUCKED OUT OF BEER PONG?
Basically, this the game for people who’ve seen too many college movies and don’t have any friends to play beer pong with.
Depending how you look at it, vending machines are either really amazing or the bane of your exist. They’re amazing because they pretty much hold the answer to your hunger/junk food craving dilemmas, but they’re the worst when you don’t have any change in your pockets to purchase those oh so sweet delights.
It would be much easier to remember to carry some cash on me if these vending machines sold the following in our hoods (they exist but not near me):

After years of failed experimenting and pre-drinking, there comes a time in every young person’s life when they finally learn how to make the perfect cocktail while sober. Not only is the achievement a rite of passage on the path to full adulthood, it’s a feat of restraint and refinement that screams, “Yes, I can enjoy a nice glass of alcohol without downing five other afterwards.”
It’ll also be the reason why you’ll ask your future spouse for mini-bar when you finally get around to finishing your basement. (You got to show off your skills somehow, right?)
Thanks to YouTube user HowToBasic, this rite of passage may be even closer than you think. The YouTube guru was nice enough to share a party favourite cocktail.
After you have finally mastered the art of bartending, make sure to take a look at HowToBasic’s other helpful tips on how to make sushi and how to change a nappy!
Warning: Too much fun may get you kicked out of any good party and a scolding from aforementioned future spouse.
The taste testers at Olde Pay Phone weren’t impressed after their fans voted they perform their next laboratory on absinthe. The comedy group allowed YouTubers to comment and upvote the alcohol they wanted the trio to test and of course, they chose the most disgusting drink ever. The historic, highly alcoholic, anise-flavoured alcohol derived from botanicals is said to give you hallucinations but mostly it just made the testers drunk.
After round four, Miles, Alexis and Nick were singing and dancing and by round nine they were puking in the toilet. While they didn’t see any green fairies (that we know of) it looks like the drink did inspire them to write some deep, artistic poetry.
Don’t worry, as far as we know they were all okay in the end and as always, the whole laboratory was medically supervised by Nurse Brittany. It was probably still a lot worse than their chipper wine garden party.
What’s the deadliest alcohol you’ve ever had?

During the day, Lucy Spraggan is that pesky salesperson on the street with a clipboard that you try to avoid. She hates her day job and auditioned for The X-Factor knowing it could change her whole life.
I wasn’t sure what to expect after she announced she’d be singing a song she personally wrote about “Beer Fear” — you know, when you go to the bar, have a few too many Tequila shots or Flaming Sambucas and end up proposing to your everlasting love (who’s actually just the greasy dude you met on the dance floor).
Her rendition ended up being one of the wittiest performances I’ve seen on the show. It wasn’t necessarily that she had the best voice (though she did have a nice Lily Allen flare), but her lyrics were intelligent and incredibly hilarious. Everyone can relate to beer fear, am I right?
Watch it here:
Here’s the context: this guy decides to shotgun six cruisers because he feels like it. Yea, you know this isn’t going to end well. This is an example of what not to do in life.
19-year-old actor Josh Hutcherson tricked a Ralph’s Grocery store clerk into selling him an expensive bottle of whiskey.
According to TMZ, Josh posed as over 21 and used a fake ID to purchase the alcohol.
“We strictly enforce all laws relating to the sale of alcohol to minors. We will investigate these allegations and take any steps necessary,” said a spokesperson for Ralph’s.
Josh could be prosecuted and the maximum punishment is 6 months in jail, although in reality he would probably not be spending any time behind bars. The police could also go after Ralph’s for selling to a minor.
Not that we condone underage drinking, this seems like a light situation considering that a lot of people buy alcohol with fake I.Ds. If he wanted to be a bit more stealth (now that he’s pretty famous), he could have asked someone else to buy it for him.
It’s interesting because Josh once said on camera,”I think the age to go to war is 18 … so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well.”
Well in that case, Josh should move to Canada. Here, we can drink when we turn 19. (Except for Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec, the drinking age is 18!)
This is why you shouldn’t do drugs or drink alcohol kids. The next morning you too might find a YouTube video of yourself kissing and humping a tree.
This girl apparently really appreciates nature and wanted to show everyone at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
Today TMZ reported that Mike “The Situation” checked into
an inpatient treatment program rehab. Although his rep wouldn’t confirm it, he apparently told TMZ that Mike “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.” TMZ went further by saying Mike is in Utah’s Cirque Lodge for prescription meds.
About 50 percent of the cast mates in Jersey Shore could benefit from rehab (including Mike). Still, using that statement as a metaphor for rehab seems like a stretch.
On the Situation’s website, it says TMZ created “ridiculous embellishments” and “This is just like the childhood game of “telephone” – someone hears a small rumor and blows it out of proportion.”
Mike also denied the rumors on Twitter: ”Do NOT Believe Everything You Hear, Especially from TMZ.”
We’ve seen some pretty erratic behaviour from Mike on the most recent season of Jersey Shore — well on all the seasons, really. His random paranoid outbursts have resulted in him getting a concussion for headbutting a wall during a fight with Ronnie.
The verdict? For now it looks like Mike is denying the rehab rumors so we can’t assume anything. For all we know, this undisclosed location is some remote beach where he’s soaking in the sun and recovering from the self-inflicted scars of the Jersey Shore house. But still, it really wouldn’t hurt if he were in rehab.
London coroner Suzanne Greenaway has finally revealed Amy Winehouse was 4.5 over the legal alcohol level when her body was found at home in July.
Amy’s parents have released a statement saying “It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy…It underlines how important our work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation is to us, to help as many young people and children as we can in her name.”
The foundation was set up by the Winehouses in their daughter’s memory to help young people dealing with addiction.
The singer had been battled substance abuse for many years before she died at the age of 27.
If you’ve got a bad case of the Mondays and want a little pep to your morning, nibble on some vodka gummy bears! Or not.
There’s been reports of high school students using the candy to get drunk according to a California school board. This dangerously delicious trend is surfacing all over North America.
“It’s kind of scary, because I like gummy bears, and I’m kind of scared because it’s something you have to really keep an eye on,” one student said in an interview.
While it’s understandable most parents and teachers want to prevent underage drinking, it’s cruel to forbid or ban one type of candy for the whole school.
Okay, we all know teens today love to drink and can do mean keg stands. But not every student has the intention of getting drunk before math class on these vodka bears. I’m sure Katy Perry’s gummy bear ring, seen above, is completely sober! Lay off the paranoia, folks, we’ve got bigger issues to deal with (you know, like learning to read and write!).
TMZ reports they have not determined if alcohol played a role in her death.
This is understandably shocking as it was common knowledge that Amy had a drug problem, and everyone assumed drugs played a role in her death.
Amy Winehouse’s family believes that the singer might have died from alcohol withdrawal. The singer was advised by a doctor to cut back her alcohol consumption, and in the last three weeks of her life, she cut alcohol out completely.
People reports that doctors recommended a gradual cutback, and not to quit cold turkey. A friend of the Winehouse family told the Sun, “Abstinence gave her body such a fright they thought it was eventually the cause of her death,” said the source. People has confirmed that this is the family’s belief.
The autopsy came back inconclusive. It will take some time to learn how exactly Amy died. However, a very valuable lesson for anybody trying to quit drinking.
A source from the tour tells TMZ that the “I Am Still Music” tour will have a “dry backstage as we are committed to keeping a safe and professional atmosphere to ensure a smoothly running tour.” This is only for backstage areas, and regular fans are free to do as they wish in general areas.
Expect this policy to last until 2013, which is the length of his probation. However this hasn’t affected his performance. He just dropped another mixtape recently and it’s amazing.
The Jackass star, who had a high blood alcohol level of .196 when he crashed his Porsche in rural Pennsylvania, was driving at least 130 miles an hour.
According to a toxicology report released by West Gosh Township Police Wednesday, Dunn, 34, was driving drunk when he and passenger Zachary Hartwell passed away in the crash. Dunn’s blood-alcohol level, which was one-fifth of his total blood supply, was twice the legal limit for Pennsylvania drivers.
Dunn’s Jackass pal and co-star Bam Margera, visited the crash site on Tuesday and broke into tears when he spoke to a news a crew.
“I’ve never lost anybody that I care about,” Margera, 31, said. “And it’s my best friend.”
“He was the happiest person ever,” Margera continued. “He was the smartest guy. He had so much talent. He had so many things going for him. It’s just not right.”
Ryan Dunn was always one of my favourites from the Jackass series. It’s unfortunate he had to die this way. May he rest in peace and may all of us take this as a lesson to not drink and drive in the future.
MTV has canceled the controversial teen drama ‘Skins,’ reports CTV.
The show won’t be back for another season, so says the network, because it “didn’t connect with a U.S. audience as much as we had hoped,” MTV spokesman Nathaniel Brown says.
The short-lived show received heavy criticism for its racy nature and use of drug, alcohol and sex that were prominent on the show. Many groups felt the young actors violated child pornography laws and advertisers began pulling their commercials from the series.
‘Skins’ premiered in January as an American version of the British hit, but an initial audience of 3.3 million viewers sank to 1.2 million viewers for the season finale.
Another one bites the dust – will you miss it? I never got into the show, but I heard that the American version was never as good as the British series.
Whitney Houston is set to return to the big screen for the first time in 15 years, reports CTV.
The 47-year-old singer-and-actress will be reuniting with her former ‘Waiting To Exhale’ castmates to create a sequel to the 1995 hit movie, in which she played unlucky-in-love television producer Savannah Jackson.
Actress Angela Bassett, who portrayed Bernadine Harris in the film, explained director Forest Whitaker is in the process of altering author-and-screenwriter Terry McMillan’s follow-up to the movie.
“It’s preliminary, but it’s going to happen, ‘Waiting to Exhale 2′. McMillan wrote ‘Getting to Happy’ and she’s written the screenplay … Loretta Devine, Lela Rochon, Whitney, Forest. Forest is working on the script now.”
In others news, a representative for the superstar singer confirmed today that Houston is undergoing treatment. Kristen Foster says Houston is in an out-patient program for drug and alcohol treatment. She says it is a voluntary measure and part of Houston’s “long-standing” recovery process.
Houston has battled problems with drug addiction for years. But in 2009, as she released a comeback album, she declared herself healthy and clean.
However, her 2010 tour overseas was trouble. Houston cancelled some dates due to illness and received negative reviews from fans who were disappointed in the quality of her voice and performance.
It’s unclear how long Houston will be in rehab or where she’s being treated. But before she takes on the stress of doing huge films, it’s good she clears her mind and focuses on herself first.
Tallulah Belle Willis, the 17-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, has been arrested for underage possession, reports TMZ.
Law enforcement sources say cops spotted three girls getting out of a car in Hollywood at around 11:00 PM, carrying what appeared to be two bottles of alcohol. The officers probed further and determined it was indeed alcohol. Problem is, all three girls are underage.
Tallulah Belle and her friends were then cited at the scene for underage possession, but since Tallulah Belle is a minor, cops couldn’t just release her. They needed to find an adult to pick her up, so Tallulah Belle called Bruce , where Demi ended up picking her up. I bet she wasn’t happy.
Tallulah has appeared in “The Scarlet Letter” and “The Whole Ten Yards,” and seems to be well on her way to the troubled path of many other child actors. Just kidding, all youngsters go through a partying stage, so hopefully hers is short-lived and doesn’t continue on into her twenties (A-la-Lohan.) Bruce and Demi seem like cool parents, so I’m sure Tallulah will get a good talking to and smarten up.
