There’s actually nothing better than a good house party. Provided it’s done correctly, a kegger is a great way to meet people or even get the attention of that special someone. This week’s episode of Talking Sh*t is a how to guide that will help anyone who’s daring enough to throw their own party. Watch our very own staff give pointers on how to party proof your house, scare off douchey guitar players and share their own experiences.
Note: “We’re not encouraging excessive drinking and please make sure you check I.D.” -our lawyers wanted us to post that…

Today we talk about our favourite house party movies for you to indulge in this March Break! Superbad is undoubtably our fave. Then we move on to a new ad with a slew of Internet memes and a Hunger Games parody appropriately called Hunger Pains!
In honour of Project X, our resident columnist Cassandra Gallo put together a top five list of the best house party movies to watch this March Break. Who knows? Maybe the movies will serve as inspiration for your own March Break bash.
Want to know what the key to becoming legendary is? It’s simple. Just throw an epic house party, one that people will talk about for months after.
For your mission to be successful, you need more than a basement with the latest Top 20 tracks playing on your iPod’s speakers. And you need more than a few of your friends gathered around discussing the latest Justin Bieber songs. To become legendary, you need an empty house, a few hundred people, and Bieber not only to be talked about at the party but to actually be there.
Okay, the standards are high but the outcome is usually sensational. Many have tried to throw a class A bash and many have failed. To those who only wish they could throw a bash like this, I invite them to take inspiration from this list of top five teen party movies, created in honour of the theatrical release of Project X.
1) Superbad (2007)
Here’s the movie that coined the name McLovin. It follows three friends (Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse) as they try to fulfill their promise to buy alcohol for a hot girl’s party. Oh, and they want to jump-start their sex life too. This movie is hilarity at it’s best, as these three friends want to end their high school career with a “bang.”
2) American Pie (1999)
Apple pie never looked the same after the release of this teen favourite. It follows a group of guys who make a pact to get laid by their senior prom… specifically at Stifler’s after-party. This movie has it all; beautiful girls, raunchy humor, and an unforgettable post prom party. It wouldn’t hurt to catch up on all the American Pie films (even the bad ones) in preparation for their upcoming reunion.
3) Can’t Hardly Wait (1998)
There’s one thing we party goers have learnt through the years … parties are messy! Either your so called best friend hooks up with your ex-boyfriend or you want to finally land a special night with your longtime crush. This movie gives us faith that parties make the unexpected possible. The film follows different students from separate cliques as they try and make the seemingly impossible possible.
4) House Party (1990)
Sneaking out, getting arrested, and dancing with hot girls/guys is the typical formula to follow when you decide to attend any rager — at least it is in the movie world. House Party is just the type of movie to prove you can get away with these things. When Peter (Christopher Martin) announces that his parents are going out of town and that he’s having a party, his house becomes the destination of the year. No matter what life throws at them the characters in this movie strive to make it to this party. RSVP at the door.
5) Risky Business (1984)
Dancing in your underwear alone at home is something we all secretly do
(just me?) and Tom Cruise made it socially acceptable. In the movie Risky Business, Joel Goodsen miraculously throws a house party co-hosted with a prostitute, all while conducting his college interview. Win!
When your party is over and morning light starts to trickle through your window you can begin to nurse that hangover. Wait, who are we kidding? Still craving more? Here are three runner-up movies that nearly made the cut: Animal House (the classic!), Sixteen Candles, Weird Science.
Today we talk about crashing the real life Project X blowout, Nickelodeon star Amanda Bynes bolting from the cops and drunken Facebook snaps being preserved with embroidery.
Two Calgary students probably don’t need to see the Project X movie this weekend because they’re basically living it.
Hunter Mills went on Twitter on Monday night to tell his friends about a house party with the hashtag #projectkris. Next thing he knows, the party is trending in Calgary, then across Canada and finally THE WORLD — as far as Australia, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
Mills told the Toronto Star: “I don’t even know what happened.” “The original party was supposed to be for about 60 people. But when I started tweeting, well, now it’s going to be thousands.”
Mills said police have visited him twice and warned him that the event will be shut down at the first sign of trouble.The original tweet has so far generated about 5,500 tweets, re-tweets or replies with his hashtag.
Do you think it will be this epic?
Let’s call this the Variety Post of andPOP. Even we miss a couple stories every week that we wish we could cover. Here are some quick hits from the past couple days.
1) Highlights from Project X premiere party
Project X is being labeled the party movie of the year and the premiere blowout certainly verifies that. The party included performances by Tyler, The Creator, A-Trak, The Hundred In The Hands, Drop The Lime, Jesse Marco and Kid Cudi. Okay, I’m hooked.
2) Baby Snooki
As we know, Snooki is probably going to turn her supposed pregnancy into a Jersey Shore spin-off. Jimmy Kimmel envisions the show as more of a Rugrats style cartoon, but it still has plenty of spit-ups, burps and baby herpes to go around.
3) Grimes’ premieres “Oblivion”
This airy video, directed by Emily Kai Bok, is for a track from Grimes’ first album “Visions.” The quirky pink-haired singer dances awkwardly in a football stadium. It’s definitely a chill track to replay over the weekend.
4) Jingle Punks
The Jingle Punks are a hipster orchestra that created an Oscar mashup of all the best songs over history. The live performance includes shoutouts to Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, James Bond and Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard.
5) New scene from The Hunger Games
With all the trailers and scenes being released for The Hunger Games, I feel like I’ve pretty much seen the whole movie. What’s left? Today they released yet another new seen to torment you. The short clip features Katniss’s mean archery skills.
6) Justin Bieber’s dad posts a birthday video
When I first saw this video I thought it was some sort of parody or spoof… but no, it’s really Justin Bieber’s dad, Jeremy Bieber. What do you get the boy with everything for his birthday? How about a tattoo of the initials “JB,” for Justin Bieber, though it conveniently stands for his initials too. The worst part is when his dad picks up his phone and says: “Hello Weezy, what’s popping?” Cringe!
In the latest instalment of Vice Magazine’s “Project X”, Snoop confesses that he was drugged at one of Hugh Hefner’s parties.
He was walking around with a “big ol’ pimp cup” filled with the world’s biggest Mimosa when a couple of playboy bunnies kidnapped his drink. Snoop wasn’t paying attention and that’s when he suspects someone dropped a roofie into his pimp cup. Luckily, the scumbag that slipped them the pill ended up sedating Snoop instead of the playmates.
He eventually blacked out and fell down a flight of stairs but thankfully had some bunnies to nurse him back to health. The story ends much like how any Snoop Dogg story should, he gets high with a bunch of people and shows some girls his magic stick (remix).
Moral of the story: the playboy mansion lives up to its reputation. So if you’re lucky enough to get an invite, keep your eyes on your “big ol’ pimp cup”.
