They did not stop there, however, and they then went to Made in Mexico, a nightclub and restaurant combo that is quite the hotspot on Inwood. They spent $9,000 on liquor.

They ended the night with a bang at Playroom Nightclub and racked up a $91,000 bill. They purchased 40 bottles of champagne, and they partied until the sun came up.

Chainsmokers, Music Converted Into Lessons

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are the collaborative duo which make up the entire sonically driven sound that is The Chainsmokers. They have been honestly one of the only bands who put out their hearts and souls out there into the world to hear when it comes down to electronic dance music and the expectations surrounding the genre as a whole. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are truth seekers and value the honesty of human intimacy rather than fraudulent, fake, and the insincere promises of Facebook and Twitter. They have worked viciously hard on what it is that they love to do and no doubt deserve the fame that they have been receiving from the masses at large. With over a billion streams of listeners who listen to their recorded songs such as Closer, Roses, and many others they have disclosed to the masses of what it is that is going on in today’s generation of artistry. They have recently gotten out of a nine month space where they put a new song called Sick Boy which describes the kind of madness that goes on in the heads of those who get sucked into the world of getting likes on Facebook and other such news feeds. They are described as being an art form in themselves because no other band speaks so blatantly about the truth of things when the subject of social media is brought up to the entire world. Their music has not fallen upon deaths ears when regarding their topic and insights about the craziness that happens in the people’s lives who fixate and overly get sucked into dependence upon something outside of themselves. The truth hurts but that is why the Chainsmokers took all of their anger and frustration to convert it creatively into a song that speaks volumes more than a lifeless and empty beat track that does nothing but make people’s heads nod. Yes, the Chainsmokers have acquired their unique take and view upon the digital world with their songwriting abilities and now the world is more understanding of it because of them.



Matt Damon’s Good Will Hunting by Lawrence Bender

Lawrence Bender is just a pure genius when it comes to producing films. The crazy things are that Bender wasn’t always into the arts growing up. In fact, he never started to really get interested in them until he was in college. When Lawrence Bender was growing up, his goal was to become a civil engineer. Why he had this goal I do not know. All I know is that great jobs in that field were one of the reasons that Lawrence Bender chose that path. He grew up in a Jewish household that lived in The Bronx, New York City, New York. Just as he planned, he graduated from high school and enrolled at the University of Maine to pursue his degree in civil engineering. He graduated with it four years later.

Bender picked up the activity of dancing while he was in college. In fact, it was an art rather than just an activity. It is what Lawrence Bender truly loved. Because of this, his new goal what to become a professional dancer. He, unfortunately, obtained an injury that permanently sidelined him from his love. This is when Bender entered into the film producing industry.

Bender has produced some really great films over the years, many of which were nominated for specific awards. In fact, some even won. My favorite movie out of all of his films would have to go to Good Will Hunting. I really just fell in love with the whole plot of the movie and how it moves along. I also love Matt Damon so that was another reason why I enjoyed it. Out of the whole movie, the thing that made me like it the most was the challenges that Will Hunting had to overcome to get where he wanted to go. It just really gave me a new perspective at looking at my own life and the things I come across that are challenges.

Another film that I liked of Bender’s was a documentary with Al Gore called An Inconvenient Truth. In the film, Gore goes into great detail on how humans are negatively impacting the planet.
