Finally, a site that is giving YouTube some competition! Say hello to VUBE.com, a new social video site that was created in January 2013 and allows users to post videos in a way that promotes more individualized control over how their content is viewed and received by the world. Unlike YouTube, VUBE presents user content to the world on a massive advertising platform, and in turn, collects user engagement data for the video during an initial test. How each video performs during its test will assign it values in its promotional system, as well as contribute to indexing on VUBE. This is basically an automated crowdsourcing mechanism that tries to make a video go viral, knowing instantly whether the video is gaining traction or not, and then begins to deal with the video accordingly, using the metrics collected.

The boys of Cash Cash came back to native NYC on Friday for one amazing kick ass night and Joonbug got to check it out!
Our feet hurt and we still hear the bass...that's gotta be a sign Joonbug had as great a night as everyone else at Pacha this Friday. The main floor was crowded with a mix of people ranging around 19-25. From hippie tops, eclectic band tees, Pacha gear and some just straight topless... people flooded in to see the trio.
Best friends and brothers Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf and Samuel Frisch recently killed it with top hit Take Me Home ft. Bebe Rexa. This amazing group has gained international success and recognition for their great dance remixes.
Let’s be honest, New York City is not at all a “cheap” place to dine, let alone go out for drinks. Sometimes, the price of two drinks can cost even more than your meal, and that’s not at all worth it. Luckily, if you’re willing to venture to the Upper East Side, you’ll find the perfect spot with drink specials galore to help soothe your aching wallet.
The Stumble Inn, located at 1454 2nd Ave., is ready and waiting with a drink menu containing beverage deals which change on a daily basis. Not only that, but you can throw in a couple of big TVs which are always playing that day’s sporting event, stuffed hamburgers and much more on their menu, and, wait for it… a beer pong table. Did we mention that Happy Hour runs from 11:30AM-7:00PM every single day? That’s right, every day except Sunday, in which it’s restricted to only beer, you can come in for Happy Hour and receive any drink for half the price.
Morse street in Rogers Park is one of Chicago's most underrated and under appreciated places to get loaded. There is a number of bars and restaurants all conveniently clustered around the Morse red line stop without all the woo girls and 28 year old softball fanatics you usually run into around Addison. Besides the reasonably priced low key watering holes and gyro restaurants, Morse street also has a fantastic venue that hosts not only some top notch musical acts, but also theater, and a mixed media gallery as well.
As if to match the cobble stone side streets around Morse street, the Mayne Stage has the appearance of one of America's early 20th century theaters. Everything from the massive sign out front with letters written with light bulbs, to the theater with its lounge tables and blue velvet curtains is reminiscent of a cabaret theater. It's a throw back to an age, an age which most people are from are most likely dead.
The votes are in on The Place and here is the rundown
SCENE : the bar is mostly occupied by college students and those from the younger side of the 20s spectrum, kicking back after a long day at the financial district. It's the perfect place to catch the game or as the night hits around 10pm hit the dancefloor and party the night away. If you like the atmosphere at a dive bar, this is a great scene.
MUSIC: During the day you can nod along to your fave classic rock songs, and then after 10pm you can yell requests at the DJ. The dancefloor is a little on the small side, however. The DJ spins Top 40, club mash-ups, and R&B hits after 10pm. PLUS all the flatscreens to catch sports! We also love the ineveitable seasonal theme nights on Wednesdays ! The bartenders get super festive!
