Craziest Airbnb Rentals on the Market

The Internet has brought us a treasure trove of amazing things. The latest craze / way to make money/ way to save money is Airbnb. This is an online service (and not the only one!) that allows homeowners to put their spare rooms, condos and vacation homes up for rental. In some cases, these could be considered four-star properties. Others are quite a bit lower on the comfort scale. Still, it is the proverbial, “You get what you pay for.” In some cases, those Airbnb rentals are just downright crazy. Here are some perfect examples:

Break out the Wands: Hogwarts Opens in Hollywood

“You’re a wizard, Harry.” Those are the words that forever changed the life of the boy who lived under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive. Seven books and eight movies later, you would think the saga of Harry Potter would be at an end. Well, you would think wrong. A new film series that takes place in the Harry Potter universe is coming out later this year. For Muggles who want to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you’ll want to head over to Universal Studios, Hollywood. Much like their sister theme park in Orlando, the Hollywood Studios have opened a special attraction that is all things Harry Potter. Here’s what you can expect:

iPoll Roundup: Best Art Museums in the World

Art isn’t easy. Just ask any artist. Better yet, ask anyone trying to be an artist who hasn’t sold a painting. It’s rough out there. Of course, history is full of those artists who have been deemed “museum-worthy.” How can you tell? Well, their art is on display in a museum. Total qualifier. If you’re looking for things to fill out on your bucket list, then adding some museum tours is certainly the way to go. You might have to bust out the passport to hit some of the really special treasure troves of art but that’s what bucket lists are for, right? Let the roundup of the best art museums in the world begin!

Everything You Need to Know About Star Wars: The Force Awakens

History dictates that May 4th is Star Wars Day. As a classic designated but unofficial holiday, Star Wars Day is the one time of year when all attention must be paid to all things Star Wars. Why May 4th? Try saying it like this, “May the fourth be with you.” You get it, right? Well, this year May 4th will have competition for Star Wars Day and that will be April 5th. That is the Blu-Ray release day of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is the return to the Star Wars universe that shattered all kinds of box office records when it was released over the Christmas holidays. So much for summer blockbusters.

Mobile Army Monday: The More You Answer, the More You Win with iPoll

Hopefully, you came out of April Fool’s Day unscathed from a prankster. Of course, if you pulled a prank, then it would be super awesome to see the photo evidence! April is upon us and that means brand new opportunities to win with iPoll. Actually, winning is just a small part of the benefits of an iPoll account. The “bread and butter” of that account is actually making all the direct cash rewards you’ll get when you complete a Mobile Mission or take a new survey. However, it’s the “bonus bucks” that can make a huge difference. We’re talking really huge.

Epic April Fool’s Day Pranks

April 1st is the one day we get to be silly and all is forgiven by one little phrase: “April Fool’s Day.” Thanks to the interwebs, you’ll no doubt be assaulted by all kinds of merry pranksters who announce they are married, pregnant, or quitting their job. Then there are all the “You won a big prize” scams to be aware of. For the most part, those pranks are harmless and don’t take up a lot of time. However, if you want to achieve legendary April Fool’s Day status, then you’re going to have to go big or go home. Here are some prime examples of epic pranks.

Why You Should Love LA

In our never-ending quest to provide you with city snapshots from around the world, we’re proud to present Los Angeles. Home to Hollywood and neighbor to Mickey Mouse. This is a town that was once covered in orange groves. Today, we consider LA an industry town with the industry being TV, movies, and music. Of course, with a population hovering just over four million folks, not everyone is gainfully employed in “the business.” Still, there is a kind of magical vibe about the place. Why should you love LA for your next vacation? Count the ways…

A Brief History of Basketball

We’re in the middle of March Madness and you know what that means: we’re talking about basketball. Back in the day, I actually played a little hoops myself, but it didn’t stick. No regrets, but it’s still a great sport. March Madness is all about college b-ball. It’s a big betting season as teams work their way through the brackets. It’s also the perfect inspiration to answer the question that’s on everyone’s mind: “Just where did basketball come from?”

What the World Eats for Lunch

Anyone who knows me knows my favorite time of day is lunchtime. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of dinner and enjoy going out for breakfast, but for me, lunch is where it’s at. It helps break up the day, gives me something to look forward to in the morning, and fuels me to get through the afternoon. I have several routine “go-to” lunches that consist mostly of sandwiches made in mi casa. (Ironically, if I go out to lunch, I often like to have breakfast for my meal, but let’s not get complicated.) We’ve already explored what the world eats for breakfast. Perhaps it is time to see what’s on the menu for lunch.
