6 Hobbies to Pick Up During Quarantine

Although it feels like the COVID-19 pandemic has already lasted forever, realistically it is looking like it will last even longer. To avoid falling into a rut during the winter months, try to pick up a new hobby. Even if you only do it for a month and end up not liking it, there is no harm in trying new things. As a parent, it's important to show your kids that even adults can do things for fun, and the fun doesn't stop once you grow up. Here are six hobbies to pick up today (some of which you can even do with your kids).

PRODUCT OF HATE delivers an early Halloween treat with an epic rendition of LIVING COLOUR’s 1988 classic, “Cult of Personality” ahead of the U.S. Presidential election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. The timeless anthem is just as relevant now as it was upon its original release and the band pays tribute with a version that amps up the rage atop a crushing groove. The cover art is an homage to the original single while the video is an appropriately retro affair that recalls the VHS era of MTV in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s, capturing the band in its rehearsal space for the very first time.

The track was recorded in 2018 during the sessions that would become the band’s second full-length album, next year’s YOU BROUGHT THIS WAR. The band first performed the song live back in 2017.

“We’ve been holding onto this for a little while now,” says frontman Adam Gilley. “With this crazy election going on, it’s truly a year that will go down in history to say the least and with that being said, we felt that there is no better time to release this song than right now. I feel It speaks volumes.”

“I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it as a kid,” says lead guitarist Geno Rathbone. “I thought Vernon Reid was possessed. I could never understand how he made a guitar sound that way — I still don’t!”

Being a dad is one of the greatest jobs in the world. Unfortunately, being a dad doesn't pay the bills. If you're a busy working dad and you want to spend more time with your kids, you're not alone! Here are a few great activities you can do with your kids, even as a busy working dad.

The coronavirus has made it difficult for many to perform their jobs, but none have been hit quite as hard as small business owners catering to the local populace. Restaurants have had to close their doors and offer solely take-out options, hairdressers and salons have had to close indefinitely, and locally run shops have run out of ways to serve a needy community. While some of us are lucky enough to work from home, those who run a small business are struggling to make ends meet. As a result, many locations are already closing their doors for good.

After all, local businesses are the backbone of your community. It's important to keep their doors open since it's good for your city's economic system.

Juggling homework, friends, and after school activities can cause stress and anxiety which can lead to poor academic performance. In fact, 1 in 13 people around the world suffer from anxiety, according to the World Health Organization. Fortunately, there are things you can do as a parent to help relieve your child’s anxiety and help them really thrive in school. Here are eight ways to help you do just that.

This May, Dropkick Murphys and Rancid will hit the road together for the first time since 2017, for the co-headlining Boston To Berkeley II Tour with special guests Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon (on select dates) and Jesse Ahern supporting. Each night will culminate with Dropkick Murphys and Rancid on stage together for a joint encore.

As was the case on the original From Boston To Berkeley run in 2017, the final band of the night will vary by date, with either Dropkick Murphys or Rancid as the closing act.
