What Women Want Men to Notice

She walks in the door after a spa-and-shopping day, and asks you a loaded question: “Well…what do you think?”

It’s a trick! You start scanning her like she’s a Spot the Difference game. Did she get a haircut? A manicure? A new purse? Is she wearing a sexy dress? Heels? Red lipstick?

Admit it: Men aren’t exactly known for their ability to notice small (but critical!) details about women. But failing to pick up on what she considers to be a significant transformation—such as when she dyes her hair from black to red, or when she spends an hour putting on fake eyelashes—can land you in hot water. How can you avoid offending her without magically gaining observational superpowers?

Ever wonder how much it costs to book your favorite band?

Thanks to Degy Entertainment, a booking agency, we can give you a rough idea: an anonymous source passed along a list of the rates suggested by the artists’ agents per show, pre-expense.

(Note: as a reader pointed out, these are asking prices from a third-party booking agency that specializes in college shows; as such, the numbers are likely inflated. Actual prices negotiated by many of these performers are contingent on a variety of factors.)

Before you read these lists, a few things should be clarified. First of all, they aren’t perfect: a few acts are out of place, or suspiciously off — we’ll try to address these below. You’ll also notice that there are a few anomalies, and acts that aren’t music-related (i.e. Myth Busters, who you can rent for a mere $100k); Degy books speakers and corporate entertainment acts too, and a few slipped into these listings. Lastly, keep in mind that these lists aren’t comprehensive.

Below, we’ve organized the artists by purported booking fees from highest ($100k+) to lowest ($1,000).

You’re Not Ballin’ In Vegas Unless You Have A Drone Delivering Your Bottle

Bottle service by drone is the newest way to go VIP in Vegas, as revealed in a video by Marquee Las Vegas co-owner, Jason Strauss, over his Instagram this past Memorial Day Weekend.

In this unbelievable video, the drone drops off a bottle to the excited day-clubbers without a hitch. A Marquee waitress grabs the bottle, and the drone flies away.

Drone service is available at Marquee for a mere $20,000 spending fee and an advance request given at least 24 hours prior.

The price tag additionally includes a photo of the drone’s special delivery and one aerial picture of you and your group. All “perfect for social media posting,” according to a Marquee representative.

Extreme Wingsuit Stunt: Daredevil Flies Through Buildings

 

 

Remember all that talk about humans never being able to fly? You can forget about that! As long as wing suits exist, birds and planes won’t be the only flying objects in the sky.

In a recent video uploaded to YouTube, a daredevil named Sebastián Álvarez decided to put on one of those awesome suits and glided across the skies of Reñaca, Chile before flying his way between two high-rise buildings. It’s just as amazing as it sounds!

Glass Ledge on North America’s Tallest Functional Building, Willis Tower (Formerly Sears Tower), Cracks Beneath Family’s Feet

One family got the scare of their life Wednesday night when the glass ledge of the Willis Tower’s Skydeck started to crack beneath their feet.

At about 10:00 p.m. a family heard the glass cracking as they walked into the glass box, which is 103 floors above the ground’s surface.

“I walked them over so they could see and they were totally shocked and asked us to step away and then proceeded to start calling staff and techs and I don’t know who else. When we pulled our phones to start recording and take pictures they asked us to leave right away,” one of the family members told WMAQ-TV.

Disabled Vet Stranded on Broken Scooter a Mile From Home Gets a Big Push From Police

Gilbert Larocque was doing errands over Memorial Day weekend when the motorized scooter the 67-year-old Vietnam veteran uses to get around went on the fritz.

But when two San Diego police officers, Eric Cooper and Milo Shields, noticed the former Army door gunner struggling Sunday afternoon, they jumped in to help

“First we offered him a ride home,” Cooper told the Union-Tribune. “But his power chair was important to him. It was his independence and his mobility.”

Weed Coffee: There’s A New Legal Coffee Line That Will Get You Roasted

The legalization of marijuana in Washington is anticipated to bring with it a variety of new products and ways to get high. It’s even giving way for the budding entrepreneur. One aspiring marijuana mogul is giving new meaning to the conventional term “coffee pot.”

Adam Stites of Longview, Washington has come up with a line of cold-brewed coffee-infused drinks he has ingeniously named “Legal.” He says,

The coffee drinks give you an uplifting head high. We call it the wake and bake drink.

Stites says the cold-brewed cannabis beverage could be a first, and he’s experimented for quite some time to come up with the right combination.

Each bottle features about 20mg of THC, which Stites says is intended to be enough to give consumers a pleasant high without getting them completely blasted. Because, who doesn’t want to wake up completely blasted to start off the day?

The Awesome Glass House From ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Finally Sold After 5 Years On The Market

Remember watching “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” on your hooky days and thinking that you were Bueller? Well, the only way you could’ve actually been Bueller was if you had the awesome glass house from the movie. Unfortunately for you, the property finally sold for $1.06 million. It wasn’t a speedy process, though, as the asking prices constantly fluctuated.

It took about five years for the home to sell. The lucky buyer is Craig Hogan, who managed to scoop up the house and will now forever be able to say he has direct access to the very garage that Ferris’ friend Cameron kept that shiny 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder in. That’s what winning looks like!

Nutella French Toast Cinnamon Rolls Just Redefined What Breakfast Should Be Like

Not all of us are big fans of breakfast, which is normal, seeing as there aren’t many delicious, flavorful or socially acceptable things to eat at 9 am. God forbid you walk into your office with anything beyond a bagel or oatmeal!

Luckily, Nutella exists. It’s acceptable and welcome in the general breakfast sphere more than many other things. As a matter of fact, I’ll go ahead and put Nutella up there with coffee, orange juice and pancakes.

It’s delicious and it’s acceptable to devour during any meal. If you disagree, it’s probably just because you haven’t had the privilege of using Nutella like this recipe does:

Introducing [drumroll, please] Nutella french toast cinnamon rolls. They’re exactly what they sound like and they uphold the Pringles rule. You know, once you have one, you won’t be able to stop there.

10 Things That Make A Girl Beautiful Instead Of Hot

Beautiful. It’s a powerful word, one not thrown around as frivolously as hot, pretty or any of the hundreds of words we’ve come to describe women, debasing their worth to nothing more than the symmetry of their face and the fullness of their lips.

It’s a word that holds power and prestige far beyond that of any other adjective. It’s a sacred word, one kept for those who truly can’t be described any other way.

It’s a word that chases women to plastic surgery and extreme diets. It’s the base of all women’s desires and lifelong struggles.

But isn’t beautiful about so much more than looks? Isn’t it in that extra thing — that thing that makes a woman beautiful instead of hot?
