IT’S A GIVEN

That we talk slower to people who don’t speak English because we think it helps them understand!

NO HABLA WHAT?

What’s that, you can’t understand me because I’m from Jersey? Well what if I was from Armenia, then we’ve got some serious issues and obviously talking slower isn’t going to help.

TOP 10 SPOKEN LANGUAGES

While we’re on the subject of languages and after a few drinks and some research, I decided to do some digging and find what languages are widely used around the world. Compiling a list of the top 10 languages spoken around the world by population status was actually extremely surprising to me. Keep in mind that there are very close similarities between dialect and language.

  • 1. English (duh) 1.132 billion
  • 2. Mandarin 1.116 billion
  • 3. Hindi (Central) 615.4 million
  • 4. Spanish 534.3 million
  • 5. French 279.8 million
  • 6. Standard Arabic  273.6 million
  • 7. Bengali (what?) 265.0 million
  • 8. Russian (Slavic) 258.2 million
  • 9. Portuguese 234.1 million
  • 10. Indonesian 198.7 million

I LOVE LUCY!

British-American bombshell Lucy Diana Boynton born 1994 in NYC and raised in London, daughter of Graham Boynton is an actress we’ve really fallen in love with after seeing Bohemian Rhapsody. She made her film debut as the young Beatrix Potter in Miss Potter (2006). She went on to feature in the films such as Copperhead (2013),Sing Street (2016),Murder on the Orient Express (2017) and Apostle (2018). But playing the role of Mary in Queens movie was where she really became inspirational for many other actresses and actually some women in real life as well, given her situation in the movie. Lucy has been playing roles in TV series in London since 2007 till current 2019. But Bohemian Rhapsody earned her a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards. If you haven’t seen any of her films, get out of your parents basement and get involved!

TOP 5 LARGEST CONCERTS

Remember your first concert, I don’t! It was a time your parents felt you were responsible enough to go with friends and be home at a decent time after a night of precious entertainment. Well that was bullshit for most of us. Your very first concert was a time you screamed of excitement in the same tone as if a piece of seaweed touched your toe and you thought it was a shark. You got home so late and puked your brains out from sharing a bottle of JD! But after your first lesson you start to pick up a grove to be socially cool enough to hang. I sit and try to reminisce of the hundreds of shows that I’ve seen and been part of as well! There are magical, goose bump moments you’ll never forget. Here is a list composed of the top 5 biggest concerts on record. I feel the research could be argued by some, I felt Live Aid should have been in the line up but that was not under one roof. I was just as surprised as you will be!  (In chronological).

1. Love Parade, 2008 – 1.6 million Germany’s Love Parade festival was famous for attracting huge crowds, and in 2008 it was bigger than ever, with around 1.6 million partygoers joining the festivities in Dortmund. The world’s top DJs helped transform the city into the biggest free party Germany had ever seen.

2. The Rolling Stones, 2006 – 1.5 million The Rolling Stones’ 2006 performance on Copacabana beach in Rio, the name of the tour, ‘A Bigger Bang’. An audience of 1.5 million watched the rockers perform hits including Satisfaction and It’s Only Rock n Roll from a stage the height of a seven story building.

3. Jean Michel Jarre, 1997-3.5 million The king of big gigs is undoubtedly Jean Michel Jarre, performing a grand total of four concerts with an audience of over a million people each. Back in 1979 he set the world record for the biggest gig ever. His performance in Paris attracted a million fans. He then went on to break his own record twice. 1.5 million. In Houston in 1986, 2.5 million in Paris in 1990, and an astonishing 3.5 million in Moscow in 1997, equalizing Rod Stewart’s world record. No concert since has matched up to that scale, but who knows what’s to come.

4. Rod Stewart, 1994 – 3.5 million Music legend Rod Stewart holds the current world record for the biggest gig of all time — in 1994, he also performed on Copacabana Beach to a staggering 3.5 million people celebrating New Year’s Eve. Although 99% of the crowd probably couldn’t see a thing, being part of the world’s biggest concert at New Year must have made for a pretty amazing atmosphere and a night the gig-goers will never forget. Who would have thought?

5. Monsters of Rock, 1991 – 1.6 million There have been countless large-scale rock festivals throughout history, but none bigger than the Soviet Union’s one-off edition of Monsters of Rock. In 1991, the combination of Metallica, AC/DC , The Black Crowes and many more attracted 1.6 million rockers to Moscow. Monsters of Rock also took place around the same time in NJ as well.
