Glitter Beards Flood Instagram as Latest Man Trend

by MARYAM OUTLAW

Hold on to those Movember manes for a little longer gentleman, because #glitterbeard is running rapid on social media.

First came the “beardstache,” then the “man bun” and now the glitter beard joins our elite list of hunky grooming trends gone viral. Coined by social media duo the Gay Beards, who decorate their beards with ornaments, flowers and paint, the glitter beard literally consists of just two things: facial fuzz and a whole lot of sparkle.

This week alone, the trend instantly became a popular Instagram and Twitter hashtag as plenty of men jumped on the bandwagon, posting merry photos of their bushy bristles.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Hits Big! (Review)

by BIBI AJAYI

Marvel nerd or not, one can’t help but to appreciate the gloriousness that is Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. First off, I have to give props to the movie’s director, Joss Whedon, who also directed The Avengers. Due to the success of The Avengers in 2012, some viewers would be a bit hesitant about the quality of the sequel (let’s be real, sequels are never as good as the original), but Avengers: Age of Ultron is a whole different Marvel beast.

When the bars get old and parties become scarce, UMD students might want to start looking for alternate venues for fun and memorable times.

Luckily, being less than an hour out of DC, Terp students have the opportunity to check out the plethora of artists coming through the city this Fall, ranging from international superstars like Usher and Stevie Wonder to A+ performers like Porter Robinson and Skrillex.

In order to make your lives a little easier, however, I put together my Top Five Must See Concerts of the Fall 2014 season, as well as a bunch of others I truly recommend. So please enjoy my biased advice and come out to a show this semester.
