Married, Malibu, Man Taunt.

Drake and Josh star Josh Peck has tied the knot with his long time partner Paige O’Brien. No longer the overweight dorky teen he was during the show, he is now 30 years old, trimmed down, and madly in love.

The wedding was held in Malibu in front of friends and other celebrities. However, his famous co-star Drake Bell was not invited. Bell took to Twitter saying “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…”. He has since deleted the tweet, but then posted “I’ll miss you brotha”.

Quite sad for Drake and Josh fans, but also very exciting that the star has settled down.

Winner Winner, little spinner

Everyone has seen the crazy toys around they are being sold nearly everywhere, endless variants on the simple toy. For people living under a rock the fidget spinner is a toy that spins like a propeller on a persons finger on a bearing. They’ve become the hottest item to roll off the bandwagon. Depending on how you roll or spin. They are irritating or the best thing since sliced bread.

Although they were first invented in 1999 only now in 2017 have they taken off. They have been marketed as having health benefits. Some schools have banned the toys to help children concentrate in class.

Originally pitched as a toy for people with attention deficits. Experts are divided on this  and the toy has become the hottest item to have lately with no end in sitgh we have fidget spinner culture emerging, in the mean time until the next trend takes off.

Ikea Yeezys?

Yep, you heard right! ‘Mache 275’ as he is known on Instagram has made some of the craziest customs you’ve ever seen with an Ikea colourway. Ikea has been no stranger to hype recently with an Ikea face mask being made and also people taking the iconic Ikea bag and turning it into things like hats and tote bags.

Considering how good they look maybe Kanye and Adidas should officially collaborate with Ikea and Mache275 to make this happen because for a lot of people this would be a must cop.

2 Cancelled Girls

Season 6 of 2 Broke Girls, the once successful CBS sitcom, will be its last, as announced last week. The show focused on the working class struggles of two young women who dreamed of opening their own business, but after six seasons, the show has been cut short, apparently due to a lack of viewership. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the titular characters and IRL besties, posted their goodbyes on Instagram after the announcement of the cancellation.

The season six finale episode experienced a US viewership rating of 4.57 million on its air date on April 17th. The show had been previously aired in Australia via the Channel 9 network, however they had stopped airing the show back in December 2016. Some viewers have voiced their frustration online at the show being cancelled.

A Fond Farewell to a Royal Rogue

Following the announcement that Prince Phillip will be stepping down from attending royal duties and engagements we here at The Basement would like to send a fond farewell to the loveable and sometimes controversial Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh. After relinquishing his royal titles of Prince of Greece and Denmark after the second world war and marrying Queen Elizabeth II in 1947 Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth gave life to four children.  Not known for watching his tongue Prince Phillip has at times been the source of controversy but despite many trials and tribulations he has always maintained a mirth and sense of humour that although often not seen as proper for royalty and not always politically correct brought a more human and relate-able side to the royal family.

Prince phillip

We here at The Basement would like to wish him well and happiness in his future endeavours.

Drugs, hookers and other reasons to stay alive…

We’ve all been there…

You’re struggling to get to bed and with a jogging mind you find yourself perusing through Facebook in order to find nothing really but end up gaining a wealth of knowledge about something you weren’t particularly interested in a couple of hours prior.  Init? Well we thought we’d share one of our own finds with you all.

An article titled “Guy Goes to Mexico To Kill Himself, Spends Week Doing Coke and Bangjng Hookers, Decides to Keep Living” to add to the random 3AM finds.

At first we thought… what a silly article this is totally going to help us get through a day of college tomorrow with this no-sleep hangover right?! Wrong. In fact, as we saw the (very vague) purpose and value of this article. While The Basement absolutely does not condone the consumption of addictive illegal drugs and substances. We do value a good point. Even the darkest situations can lead to better times ahead.

Never give up “y’all”.

“A semicolon represents a sentence the author could have ended, but chose not to. The author is you and the semicolon is your life.”

Depression is a nasty, nasty burden that affects way more people than you’d expect. According to the World Health Organisation, depression is now the leading cause of illness and disability, affecting an estimated 332 million people worldwide. Thus, it is becoming more important than ever for us to grab it by the b*lls by reducing the stigma surrounding it and creating positive, fact based and hopeful messages about depression and other mental health illnesses. Having lost people very close and dear to us as a result of suicide and having suffered from depression and anxiety ourselves– this is a topic we feel very strongly about and we can assume anyone else reading this can also relate some way or another. Like any illness, mental illnesses require support and above all time to rectify. Take it easy.

Remember you are not alone and often all we need to do is take a step back and see the beauty that lies in the world around us — in learning, feelings, nature, people etc. At the bare minimum appreciating the people who appreciate you and appreciating as well as loving the facets in your own life that you are grateful for (for which we all have at least one thing *cough* life) are a few ways in which we can slowly attack our inner demons.

We all have a limited amount of time to enjoy ourselves so try and approach every opportunity with joy, gratitude and enthusiasm. Because even two negatives make a positive. Right?

Uhh drugs and hookers? Nah maybe not for us. But the point we are trying to make is drugs and sex didn’t save the man but deciding to find joy in life one last time as risky as it was saved the man. If you have the opportunity or ability to be happy, don’t squander it – embrace it. Don’t hesitate to take opportunities or love with all your heart. The joy that life will give back is more amazing than you can even imagine.
