Brothers gotta do a cool handshake

It is a little known fact that there is a THIRD Jonas brother. Actually, there is even a fourth Jonas brother. His name is Frankie and he's about a decade younger than his more famous older siblings. He is also a musician, however, unlike with some famous brothers, where they do not all follow the same path in life. Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, for example, are both musicians and actors, whereas Paul Wahlberg is a chef and owns a restaurant.

Who goes there?

There are lots of different things in life that we periodically replace or renew. Underwear, for example. There's probably no need to explain the rationale behind this practice.

'Tis the season!

Welcome to October! We can probably all agree that the most exciting thing about October is the prospect of eating a lot of cheap candy and staying up late to watch scary movies. There will be office Halloween parties, costumes for revelers both young and old, and pumpkins with crooked grins and glowing eyes as far as the eye can see. If Netflix were really on the ball there'd be an all new Stranger Things, like, now, instead of probably sometime in March or April.
