ArtPrize Is Coming; How Insane Are the Artists Going to Be This Year?

ArtPrize is coming, and it's a huge thing for Grand Rapids.  

Thousands of people wander around downtown, checking out all the art that comes to town and vote on the art they think should win the huge grand prize.

The grand prizes' payouts total $400,000, and there are smaller prizes all totaling $160,000. So, this is a pretty big freaking deal!

I will admit right now that I don't get art. I'm more of a music guy.

Surge Arrives at My Doorstep Today

Trying to recapture that feeling over the years was impossible, since one part has been missing. Finally, that old feeling could come true today.

The cult classic '90s beverage Surge will be arriving at my doorstep later today.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: You’re Going to Hate This Homeless Millennial [Video]

If you were to see this guy walking down the street, you probably wouldn't think twice about him. He just looks like an average guy.

But it turns out that 26-year-old Joe from Boston is actually homeless and lives on the streets of New York. And, if you want to get technical, he's really only homeless a couple of days a week.
