Coachella 2013: The Best Acts [infographic]

I’m one of those fortunate to know dozens of people going to Coachella this year, unfortunately I’m not one of them… As a two year Bonnaroo vet and a un-countable number of music fests under my belt I feel I have the authority to criticize this infographic.

First off, whoever wrote this graphic must have just stumbled upon Pitchfork’s “best acts of 2010″ and decided three years later its still applicable. Seriously, there isn’t one recent break-out performer on this list. Every act on this graphic has been through the festival gauntlet for years. What do you mean they’re a band that you want “to play a low-key house party”. The Lumineers won a grammy for christ’s sake.

Do not go see Bassnecter or Pretty Lights unless you want a bunch of rave crazy high-schoolers tripping on ecstasy to feel you up the whole time. The XX and Yeasayer are great, but why see bands that will frequent your city multiple times a year?

Want to know my “best of” picks for Coachella? You will not regret it. I’ll start off with Cloud Nothings and DIIV to wake you up with a little subdued moshing. Divine Fits for some rock & roll followed by Earl Sweatshirt for a bit of lyricism. James Blake will be a great show to calm down with, but hitting up Grimes will keep you blood flowing. Tame Impala for the 60′s vibe and The Postal Service for a bit of nostalgia. Then back to high energy with Trash Talk and I’d end it with an incredible set from Youth Lagoon.

Well those are my picks for Coachella, hope your don’t waste your time – it will be over before you know it. [Via]

High-Heel Hazards [infographic]

I’m a pretty small woman, I only measure in at 5’2, and that’s on a good day. Most days I wish I was taller so I wouldn’t have to hem up all of my pants or maxi dresses. However, whenever i go out I am thankful for my height because I can wear sky-high heels and not feel like a giant. I love heels! I can successfully walk in them for hours at a time, and I am proud to say that I can even run then them.

However, heels can be a extremely painful after a few hours. I remember spending most of my night in some beautiful red stilettos, only to hear a clicking noise coming from my ankle the next morning. Pain is beauty, but is the beauty of the show really worth an injury? How embarrassing would it be to admit you sprained an ankle from wearing high heels? Today’s infographic lists potential injuries women are risking when they wear heels. It’s a little sad to see that my feet will eventually suffer from all of the hours I’ve spent in high-heels. However, I am not sad enough to stop wearing my precious shoes. What about you? Will you limit your heel use? [via]

The World As 100 People [Infographic]

April 10, 2013 |  by  |  Mind-Blowing  |  No Comments

Today’s infographic shows a remarkable study in simplification. Jack Hagley’s design shows that if the entire world were conveniently simplified to 100 people (ie equating a percentage as a number of people). It will show how our world compares as a whole in different areas of life. As a person living in a free country with many rights and privileges, it gave me quite a lot of perspective.

Take, for instance, the fact that if the entire world were 100 people, 17 of you would not be able to read these words. In fact, only 22 of you would even have the access to a computer to read this, literacy or not! But even if you could read and had a computer to read this, only 5 of you would be able to read English-how’s that for a slim chance of making a difference! Thankfully, the world is not composed of just 100 people. There are billions of us which means that there are billions of times more than the numbers above! Though I would have loved some more categories – how many have access to cell phones, sexual preference etc. I think that this infographic simplifies a lot of information in a neat way! Let us know what you think! Were you surprised by any of the statistics?

The Pay Gap [infographic]

Did you know that today, April 9 2013 is Equal Pay Day? Happy Equal Pay Day! This day represents the strides towards equal pay that have been made already, and also the pay gap that currently exists between genders. In today’s infographic, NerdWallet details the history of the gender pay gap, the professions with the largest and smallest pay gaps, and lists the cities with the lowest pay gap. A lot of valuable information, so get reading!

Large strides have been made to minimize the pay gap, but we still aren’t at even just yet. According to today’s infographic, women working full time make 77% of what men earned. That statistic carries by location and profession, but as an average we have a bit of work to do.

As women, we should begin an effort to close this gap. Be informed of the average salary of your position, don’t be afraid to negotiate, and be confident. You deserve equal pay, so go get it! [Via]

The Most-Anticipated Superhero Movies [Infographic]

April 8, 2013 |  by  |  Entertainment, Movies  |  1 Comment

Thirty years ago it would probably be hard to imagine the explosion and success that superhero movies are having today across the world. Superhero movies were still popular and fairly frequent back then, but today they have become one of the most popular and collectively highest-grossing film genres of all time. With all of the advances we’ve made (and continue to make) in entertainment technology, these fantastic stories are finally starting to be able to come to life the way they were truly, originally imagined.

Today’s infographic from Business2Community gives us a look at some of the most-anticipated big-budget superhero movies slated to release within the next few years. In May we have Robert Downey Jr. donning his famous suit and becoming Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man) once again for the third installment in the Iron Man franchise, and from everything seen so far it looks to be Stark’s most challenging adventure yet. As for The Avengers, there is good news and bad news. The good news: Joss Whedon is set to take the helm again with everyone’s favorite band of mismatched superheroes with The Avengers 2, but the bad news is that we’re going to have to wait another two years for that one.

For more info on the next big superhero movies have a look at the infographic below and have a great day! [Via]

P.S. As of today I’ve been at DailyInfographic for exactly a year! Thanks for reading everyone!
