Live Your Life: 22 Random Things To Do Instead Of Watching The Inauguration

Inauguration Day is here. Let us help you find other things to do.

Inauguration weekend is upon us. Thousands of the president-elect's supporters will make their way to the nation's Capitol Building to witness the swearing-in of the soon-to-be president of the United States. Musicians (both expected and unexpected) will perform patriotic or entertaining numbers before thousands of onlookers, standing together on the National Mall just to witness a historic moment. The elected candidate and his soon-to-be vice president will head down Pennsylvania Avenue with members of the armed forces for a parade ending at the White House. And, of course, two inaugural balls will happen in one night as supporters dance until the break of dawn at the National Building Museum.

But you already knew all of this. What you may have already also realized is that there are so many other productive and relaxing things to do by yourself and/or with family & friends during this year's inaugural celebration. To give you more ideas and inspiration, we, the VIBE Tribe, have decided to compile this list of activities you can do from about 11 am on Friday, January 20th until about 11:59 pm on Sunday, January 22nd. We hope you choose one of these things. If not, that is okay. Either way, you're welcome.

1. Take A Trip To The Spa
There's nothing like dedicating 24 hours to yourself, especially when your mental capacity might get bombarded by non-stop Trump headlines. The spa is a great way to kick your feet up and get pampered, or take a day off from the daily 9 to 5 routine and plan a staycation. Hopefully, it'll become a habit to make sure you pencil in a "me day" every once in a while and rejuvenate yourself not only from the outside, but within as well.

2. Work Out Like There’s No Tomorrow
Granted it’s if not unsafe to really go hard in the gym; you’d be more prone to injury. But take that same focus on getting your summer body in order, to your local gym or exercise facility. Instead of browsing through your Instagram or Facebook, waiting to see if Snoop Dogg has roasted any black musicians in attendance at the inauguration, add a challenge to your usual or new fitness routine. Pick up the pace, add more of any incline or move to whole new machine altogether.

3. Visit A Slew Of Museums for Free.99
No need to be a couch potato. Get dressed, get out and explore all the culturally enriching things your city or town has to offer. In New York specifically, at least 10 museums are opening their doors for the free-ski on Inauguration Day, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Queens Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum. Read more information here.

4. Fall Down the Rabbit Hole Of YouTube's Related Music Videos
Let's get one thing straight, in the midst of SoundCloud, Spotify and other streaming platforms, Pandora can still hold it's own. But when it comes to recommending a consistent stream of related songs that speak to my spirit and mood, YouTube is king. Let yourself start with D'Angelo's "Lady" and happily fall down the path of "Untitled," "Nothing Even Matters" with Lauryn Hill, Floetry's "Say Yes" to Musiq Soulchild's "Love" and beyond.

5. Listen to Peter Rosenberg Complain About Something
Is there a more hyper-sensitive person in radio these days? The Hot 97 radio personality seems to get upset over every little thing. Sometimes his commentary makes you want to change the radio dial, as the topic at hand usually doesn't apply or pertain to him. If you want to get energy or motivation to passionately speak your mind about something that bothers you — in this case, Donald Trump becoming the President — you may want to refer to one of his show for inspiration. Again, this is a random list. Keyword: random.

6. Take A Yoga Class
Yes, we already know you're stressed. You may or may not have already started activity number one of working out like there's no tomorrow. But in an effort to loosen up those tense muscles and limbs, taking a yoga class to work on your flexibility is just as important. Go fold yourself, deeply breathe in and out, and may or may not be able to exhale "Trump" from your entire vocabulary for the next four years; while simultaneously getting your zen. Honestly, we hear results may vary.

7. Go Grocery Shopping 
Everyone loves food, so why not stock up? There's no greater feeling than finding that lovely Truffle Salt from Trader Joe's or that delicious chocolate cake. Listen, food heals and we all know we're going to need some calories to withstand this Trump slim down.

8. Go Watch Hidden Fences
Hidden Fences, the critical darling that stole the hearts of many at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards, is a film that earned every accolade its received. Starring Octavia Davis and Denzel P. Henson, the film tells the story of three black women who work at NASA but dream of becoming baseball players...or is it about a sanitation worker who is excellent at math and engineering? Whatever Jenna Bush-Hager thinks the film's plot is, it's probably better than the reality we're about to face as Americans.

9. Find Near Women's Marches Close To Your Neighborood
If you're interested in walking with other like-minded, diverse individuals to protest the harmful rhetoric and ideas of Trump and his cabinet, the Women's March on Washington D.C. may be the place for you. However, if D.C. is not in close proximity to you, there are several "sister marches" happening on Jan. 21 all across the country and around the world. If you go to womensmarch.com, you'll be able to type in your zip code to find some marches in your area that you'll be able to participate in this Saturday.

10. Paint & Sip
This is the perfect time to grab a group of friends and head over to a local art studio to practice your painting skills. Let your inner Basquiat shine, while laughing off how much of a joke a Trump presidency really is. Plus, it’s BYOB, so you can get lit until you can no longer hold a paintbrush or until you forget that in a matter of days women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community will lose their rights (whichever comes first).

11. Continue To Try And Decipher Young Thug's Lyrics 
It'd be a sin not to include Young Thug on any top mumble rapper list, but you can't deny that the Jeffery artist has some hit songs. His latest video, "Wyclef Jean," is already causing quite the buzz on social media--considering he never showed up for the shoot. Oh, and remember when we asked 8 non-hip hop professionals to tells us the lyrics to "Lifestyle"?

12. Go To A Community Reiki Healing
Reiki, or “spiritually guided life force energy,” is a great practice that helps relax the mind, body, and soul. A session can run you $25 to $100 bucks, depending on your location. Check out a community Reiki healing instead that requires a simple donation of your choosing.

13. Live-Tweet The Wiz For #InguarationBlackout
Sure you’ve seen The Wiz, but you haven’t seen it with Black Twitter. Spearheaded by writer Jamilah Lemieux, turn on Netflix and enjoy two hours of magic brought to you by Motown Sounds, Diana Ross, and the one and only Michael Jackson.

 

14. Jam To Hits of Drizzy and Yeezy at a Drake vs. Kanye West Party
This Brooklyn shindig might be going down Friday evening, but Koala Tea Agency’s “Drake vs. Kanye” pop-up party will feature the best tunes from the most popular rappers around. Take time out of your morning to curate a 'getting ready' playlist for the jam. Admission is free!

15. Look At More Of George Bush's Paintings
The former president of the free world has remained under the radar but recent photos of George W.'s oil-based paintings have left everyone in awe. After all, the world knew Bush wasn't enjoying his job as POTUS. Perhaps his love for the arts was hidden under all that dry humor and criticized decisions. There's one painting that gives Vladamir Putin a Freddy Kruger vibe, while his self-portraits will make you want to give yourself or your dad a hug.

16. Watch A Golden Girls Marathon While Simultaneously Shading America Many still can't believe a man that has been publicly endorsed by the KKK, claimed congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis of being "all talk no action" mocked a disabled journalist, accused Barack Obama of birtherism, disparaged every minority group and admitted on tape to sexual assault, will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. So to avoid it all, randomly indulge in the throwback television show. While one of our writers has seen every episode at least 55 times (because reruns), it will definitely help take your mind off of the doom America will more than likely experience during the next four years.

17. Wonder Why The Winter Premiere of Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder Had To Be Pushed Back
Originally, ABC's “Thank God It's Thursday” line up was scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 19. However, due to today's inauguration, both show's premiere date has been pushed back. While many don't agree, nor like, nor respect Donald Trump, taking away Olivia Pope and Annalise Keating after months without them is just uncouth, uncalled for and cruel. Like, really?

18. Re-Watch Congresswoman Maxine Waters Read The President-Elect For Filth.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-California) has earned herself all the seats at the cookout, and we're even letting her bring the 'tata salad. Ms. Waters in the best auntie fashion, told MSNBC's Tamron Hall that she didn't like, honor nor respect the president-elect and wouldn't attend any inauguration festivities. She perfectly encapsulated how I'll be feeling about Trump for the next four years and did so with all the attitude of my ancestors. So to keep my vibrations high, my energy lifted and my spirit tickled, I'll re-watching Ms. Waters read Donald Trump to high heavens will get me through the day and quite possibly his term

19. Obama Dubs
With such a gloomy transition occurring at, arguably, the most famous address in the United States, what better way to spend your Inauguration Day than by gathering your friends for a Obama Dub party? Start off with this Obama-spun version of Justin Beiber’s “Sorry,” if you become sad and need some cheering up. Or listen to YG’s “”F*** Donald Trump,” if you’re feeling the same way as many Americans.

20. Go Hike On A Trail
All the days leading into, during and after this election season have riled up a slew of emotions in citizens of not just America, but worldwide. When news hit that it was possible--and came to fruition--that Trump would become president, a majority of emotions were anger, devastation, and disgust. But negative energy isn’t going to get us anywhere, and we’ve had more than enough time to scream, shout, cry and throw fits. Now is the time to fight back strategically. While expression of the negativity is good, we can’t stay down forever. So this Friday (Jan. 20), instead of sitting in front of a television screen watching anything but the Inauguration, go outside and take a hike--literally. Go by yourself, or grab some friends. But, go on a trek to clear your head. Take a hike to a secluded cliff, and instead of jumping, get your last screams, cries, hollers, and fits out, but come back ready to take positive action.

21. Start Prepping To File Your Taxes
Tax season is here and we’re hoping the income tax gods are working in your favor so that there’s some green in your future. With Trump’s administration being out of touch with the financial reality of the majority of Americans, and claiming that community colleges are “damn near free” and “almost anyone can afford” it, we need to stack up every spare coin that comes our way. If you made any purchases on behalf of your business, organize your receipts. Grab all of your W-2 and/or 1099 forms to see how much money or revenue you racked up. Might as well get ahead of the Uncle Sam before April 15th hits.

22. Curl Up And Read A Good Book By A Black Writer
Have you read Brit Bennett's The Mothers? How about BUCK: A Memoir by M.K. Asante? Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World And Me? No? It's totally fine. No judgement. You have an entire day to toss the TV remote aside and get started on some for-us-by-us literature and get your intellectual life. You also find more recommendations in our V Books series.

10 Most Memorable Episodes Of 'The Wayans Bros.'

If you're a product of hip-hop, the '90s was a glorious time for television, with a plethora of shows being introduced to the public that helped inform and reflect the culture, from music to fashion and every aspect in between. One program that embodied the raw essence of hip-hop was The Wayans Bros., which made its debut as the first sitcom to air on the newly launched network, The WB, on January 11, 1995. Created by Marlon and Shawn Wayans, Leslie Ray, and David Steven Simon, The Wayans Bros. put the focus on the two youngest brothers in the Wayans clan, both of whom had tasted fame alongside their elder brothers when their appearances on In Living Color and in films like Mo’ Money putting them on the radar. Set in Harlem, the show revolves around the Williams brothers' ill-advised attempts at turning a quick buck, maintaining their romantic relationships, helping out their father, Pops Williams (John Witherspoon), and assisting friends and family in their own times of need.

While Lela Rochon (Lisa Saunders), Paula Jai Parker (Monique), and Jill Tasker (Lou Malino) were all main cast members at some point during the show's first two seasons, the core cast was comprised of both Wayans brothers, Witherspoon, and Anna Maria Horsford as Deirdre "Dee" Baxter, the latter of whom made her debut appearance midway through the show's second season. Recurring characters included Thelonious "T.C." Capricornio (played by Phil Lewis), White Mike (Mitch Mullany), Dupree (Jermaine 'Huggy' Hopkins), and Grandma Ellington (Ja'net Dubois), all of who left their own imprint and were instrumental in some of the show's most memorable moments. In addition to the core cast, The Wayans Bros. also presented additional star power in the form of cameos, with athletes (John Starks, Kenny Lofton, Hector Camacho) actors (Bernie Mac, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Elise Neal, Shari Headley, Gary Coleman, Pam Grier, Antonio Fargas, Monica Calhoun, Garrett Morris, Garcelle Beauvais, Richard Roundtree, etc) and musicians (Busta Rhymes, Keith Sweat, En Vogue, Missy Elliott, Paula Abdul) all appearing on the show, as well.

The Wayans Bros. show's run would be cut short after five seasons, with its final episode airing on May 20, 1999, marking the end of an era. However, the show has continued to entertain a new generation of viewers through syndication and is one of the definitive television shows from the '90s that spoke to and for the culture. In celebration of the show's 25th anniversary, VIBE looks back at ten of the most hilarious and entertaining episodes of The Wayans Bros. Show that made it one of the most beloved sitcoms of the hip-hop generation.

Season 1, Episode 1 "Goop-Hair-It-Is"

Our introduction to the zany hijinks of The Wayans Bros. came via the show's pilot episode, which found Shawn and Marlon attempting to cash in on a half-baked foray into the world of cosmetics. After accepting a proposition to become the manufacturers of a new hair product called Goop, Hair It Is, Marlon creates a homemade concoction that appears to work wonders for his follicles, prompting Shawn to create a scheme to sell it via an infomercial. Enlisting the help of Gary Coleman, the brothers and their new pitch man go live on air to wax poetic about the goop, but their presentation goes awry when Coleman's new hairdo goes ablaze, resulting in an impromptu fire drill that gives "Stop, Drop & Roll" a whole new meaning.

Season 2, Episode 4 "Two Men and a Baby"

Brotherhood may be second nature to Shawn and Marlon, but fatherhood is a whole different story, which we find out during the course of this classic from the show's second season. After discovering an abandoned baby that's supposedly Shawn or Marlon's kin outside of the front door of their apartment, the bros get into a heated rivalry over who's the biological father of the child. With little background information other than a note from the child's mother to go off of, the Williams' take matters into their own hands, stepping up to the plate to provide a nurturing environment for the newest member of the clan. The responsibility of parental duties prove to be too much for either brother to handle on their own, but they’re bailed out when the mother returns to recover the child after realizing a mix-up in her delivery process.

Season 2, Episode 5 "Loot"

The fortunes of the Williams family are on the brink of changing for the better after Shawn, Marlon, Pops and the rest of the gang discover a garbage bag filled with $100,000 in cash. A police report is filed, but the Williams' keep their fingers crossed that they'll be deemed the rightful owners of the money when the goes unclaimed. This doesn't stop the members of the family from counting their chickens before they hatch, as extravagant plans and pricey purchases are made in the ensuing days. Greed nearly causes the Williams' to turn on one another, but when an elderly woman shows up to recover her belongings, their dreams at a come-up are quickly dashed, putting the family back at square one.

Season 2, Episode 8 "Head of State"

During the second season of The Wayans Bros., Dee Baxter (Anna Maria Horsford) replaces Lou (Jill Tasker) as the Neidemeyer Building's security guard for the remainder of the series. When the President of the United States comes to Harlem during his campaign trail, Pops' Diner is designated as the location where the prez can relieve himself, which the family considers an honor. With Pops eager to reap the benefits of having the leader of the free world pass through his establishment, and Marlon determined to shake the President's hand, the visit is a pretty big deal to the family However, the Williams' world is flipped upside down when the Secret Service lock down the diner due to safety concerns, infringing on their privacy. In the end, Pops' gets an uptick in business, Marlon gets to shake the President's hand, and Dee gets to experience a bit of sexual tension in her debut appearance.

Season 3, Episode 1 "Grandma's in the Hiz-House"

When Grandma Ellington (Ja'net Dubois) stops in town, Shawn and Marlon are ecstatic to see the family matriarch, even making room for her to stay in their apartment. The decision is one that the brothers will quickly regret, as Grandma Ellington begins to infiltrate their life, from ruining their clothing to chasing away their dates. Shawn and Marlon decide to make things uncomfortable in hopes that she will leave, but the plan backfires, with Grandma Ellington’s discovery of the ruse putting a wedge between her and her grandsons. Realizing the error in their ways, the brothers attempt to win their grandmother back over and get back in her good graces.

Season 3, Episode 9 "The Return of the Temptones"

Pops gets a blast from the past when Shawn and Marlon decide to round up the members of his old group The Temptones for an epic reunion after thirty years. While the gesture is well-intended, things fall apart when the members let bad blood get into the mix, which puts The Temptones' upcoming performance in jeopardy. As Pops and the crew struggle to find common ground, Shawn and Marlon stand-in for the missing members, resulting in a hilariously horrendous rendition of The Temptones' hit, "Bang, Bang Bang." However, the original members of the group decide to put their differences to the side for the sake of the group's legacy, tearing down the stage in one of the more memorable moments in The Wayans Bros. history.

Season 4, Episode 9 "Can I Get a Witness?"

After finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, Marlon becomes an eyewitness to a bank robbery and identifies the criminal in a police line-up. This results in the Williams' being put in protective custody until the case is resolved, but when word gets out that the culprit's brother is on the hunt for them, it appears as if they cannot avoid meeting their eventual fate. However, the criminals' thirst for vengeance gets thwarted just in the nick of time, keeping Marlon, Shawn and Pops in the clear and out of danger.

Season 4, Episode 19 "Talk is Cheap"

Shawn and Marlon are summoned to The Jerry Springer Show to see just how close their relationship is, which leads to a few secrets between the two being revealed. When Marlon finds out that Shawn had paid his girlfriend a visit at her apartment, the two begin to bicker with one another in front of the studio audience, with Pops and Dee getting involved from the comfort of the crowd. As things get heated between the two, the bros resort to throwing blows, hurling insults and embarrassing one another. While the pair eventually come to their senses and patch things up, their dust-up and Jerry Springer's appearance made for classic television.

Season 5, Episode 7 "The Kiss"

Dee Baxter catches up with old friend Missy Elliott, who gives her a pair of tickets to her concert later that night. Deciding to take Shawn as a guest, the two enjoy one another's company to the point that they wind up kissing after a long night of drinking before passing out. Waking up half-naked and in the same bed with one another, it appears as if the two had slept together, making for a string of awkward encounters between the two. However, the potential lovebirds discover that they were victims of a prank by Marlon, which brings Shawn and Dee's friendship back to normal.

Season 5, Episode 18 "Hip Hop Pops"

Shawn and Marlon gather Pops' closest friends and throw him a surprise party to celebrate his 50th birthday. However, while the brothers' efforts were meant to put Pops in good spirits, they actually put him in a depressive and reflective state due to his age and fear of death. Looking to infuse a little fun into their father's life, Shawn and Marlon takes Pops out to the club to help make him feel young again, but the experience inspires Pops to change his wardrobe and slang in an attempt to hold onto his youth. From engaging in freestyle battles to donning iced-out chains, Pops' new style rubs Shawn and Marlon the wrong way, forcing them to cook up a plan to get him to revert back to the man they used to know.

Everything You Need To Know About Tensions Between Iran And The U.S.

Tension between the U.S. and Iran came to a head on Friday (Jan. 3) after a U.S. drone killed the head of Iran's Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of Iran-backed militia organization, Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF).

The strain between Iran and the U.S. date back to the 1953 overthrow of Iran's Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, and has been ongoing, which resulted in Americans being held hostage at the U.S Embassy for 444 days by Tehran protestors.

In 2013, shortly after Iran's President Hassan Rouhani took office, former President Barack Obama extended an olive branch to Iran. After 30 years of tension, Iran and the U.S. agreed to have diplomatic relations with a long-term nuclear program. However, in 2018, President Donald Trump abandoned the nuclear deal and reinstated sanctions against Iran, including countries that trade with the Western Asia country.

Over the past few months, the tension between Iran and the U.S. continued to escalate. Below is a timeline of events leading to the death of Qassem Soleimani.

Saudi Arabia Oil Attack In September 2019, an oil facility in Saudi Arabia was attacked. Houthi rebels took responsibility for the charge while threatening more onslaught if the country fails to lift its blockade on Yemen.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the attack, and Trump instigated the situation by saying that the U.S. was "locked and loaded” and ready to respond with possible military action.

Saudi investigators said the weapons used in the attack came from Iran, but it remains unclear on where the weapons were launched from.

Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2019

Iran and U.S. Spies The attacks on the Saudi oil facility came shortly after Iran arrested 17 spies, who were allegedly recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

According to several news reports, spies had been taken into custody, sentencing some to death. Trump, and Pompeo (a former CIA director), said Iran’s claims were false.

The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!

The Launch Of Airstrikes Iraqi leaders claimed that the U.S. violated Iraqi sovereignty by killing 24 people in retaliation for the death of an American contractor. The airstrikes also wounded 50 people in addition to the 24 people killed.

The U.S. said the strikes were a response to the more than 30 rockets launched against an Iraqi military base, killing one American and wounding four others.

“In response to repeated Kata'ib Hizbollah attacks on Iraqi bases that host @CJTFOIR forces, U.S. forces conducted precision defensive strikes against 5 KH facilities in Iraq & Syria [to] degrade KH's ability to conduct future attacks against @coalition forces.” [email protected] pic.twitter.com/g2hmTD4Eqw

March on U.S. Embassy The airstrike came after Pro-Iranian militia members marched on the U.S. Embassy, holding American diplomats hostage for more than 24 hours. President Trump blamed Iran for the protest. The statement also said that "General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.”

"At the direction of the President, the U.S. military has taken decisive defensive action to protect U.S. personnel abroad by killing Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization," the statement reads.

Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!

The Killing of Qassem Soleimani An American drone hit two cars carrying Qassem Suleimani and other officials backed by Iranian militias as they were leaving the Baghdad International Airport.

The U.S. Department of Defense confirmed Soleimani's death in a statement by calling the murder "decisive defensive action." Trump tweeted a picture of the American flag, insinuating a victory for America.

25 Best Music Videos Of 2019

As major networks continue to phase out the practice of airing music videos, visuals for some of our favorite songs have found a platform through the internet. Just like last year, music videos this year have pushed the limits on how creative these artists can get. From the comedic relief in DaBaby’s “Pony” and “Suge” videos to the emotional weight in videos from Joyner Lucas (“Devil’s Work”) and IDK (“Digital”), there’s a little bit of something for everybody to take away from these clips.

Music videos are a gold mine for artists to team up with other creatives and bring to life the music they’ve worked so hard on. When an artist and director are able to perfectly intertwine their ideas and skills together, the end result is magical. The videos in 2018 proved that point but those in 2019 may give last year’s selection a run for its money.

VIBE takes a look at the videos released this year and compiles a list of the best and brightest visuals. These videos were selected for their vivid themes, breathtaking scenery and vibrant set-pieces which helped bring viewers into the world these artists and directors created. Take a look at the 25 best music videos of 2019.
