Obviously Valentine’s Day is happening this month and we have to talk about it. I, personally, have never had a Valentine, but I have seen the movie Valentine’s Day so I think I am pretty up to speed on what goes down. Though I am 21, single and have never had a Valentine, you will not find me bashing the holiday and referring to it as “Single Awareness Day”--like, that’s dramatic! I actually think it is very cute that America has a holiday specifically designated to celebrate love! I love love and genuinely believe that love is one of the best feelings in the world. I believe love is the reason your body feels warm after drinking Tequila, love is the reason Britney Spears survived the year 2007 and I believe love is what makes life worth it. So, if you have a Valentine this year, congrats--use a condom! If you do not, congrats because you can meet your soulmate any moment now, and that is what makes the future so exciting. Alright, I have to go now... I think I just heard a pebble being tossed at my window. Happy Valentine’s Day, love birds—whether you are flocking or not.

MEET THE REAL BABE RUTH
sean p xas Grub & te ntonio t san a 202 eas treet s
coME r U gET yo N! I ’s iris DraNK o h pub trick
what is your favorite thing about the bar?
My favorite thing about the pub is my coworkers. There is nothing better than coming to work and having a great night behind the bar with your friends...other than getting off work and having a beer with them.
what is the best night to come in and why?
The best night to come in is Thursday. The beginning of the college weekend. It’s our “Pint Night” which means a Sean Patrick’s pint glass will get you cheap beer.
what is the cheesiest pick-up line you’ve heard at the bar?
There have been a number of pick-up lines, most of which make me laugh uncontrollably, but the best was on Halloween. A guy was dressed as a picture perfect Johnny Bravo and he said, “I’m pretty. You’re pretty. Wanna go home and stare at each other?”
what was the craziest thing a person has done in hopes to get a free drink?
I’m not easily swayed. It’s going to take back flips and flowers. I love a good effort though.
If you were deserted on an island, what three things would you need?
Favorite Drink: Old Fashioned recipe:
This is tough. I’m not sure my cat would fare well on a deserted island, so other than her I would want a machete, an endless supply of Tobasco sauce and my favorite book, One Hundred Years of Solitude, which seems fit for the occasion.
If someone were to talk to you in a foreign language from across the bar, you’d want it to be?
1 1/2 oz. rye whiskey 1/2 oz. simple syrup 2 dashes of angostura bitters Add cherry and orange to taste Serve on the rocks
French. So beautiful. So romantic. I don’t know what you said, but please say that again.

What does the word love mean to you? Love means being yourself. What is your favorite love song? “I want to hold your hand” by The Beatles Do you have a wedding board on Pinterest? No, I feel like that’s buying a wedding dress without even having a boyfriend. What's a total deal breaker? A momma's boy 22FEBRUARY 2013| STUDYBREAKS.COM |
What song is the perfect sex song? Anything by The Weeknd What is your favorite thing about being single? Learning about myself--being independent... Beyonce has nothing on me. Would you rather have a relationship with incredible love or incredible sex? The two go hand in hand. You can’t have incredible love without incredible sex... That’s how you get divorced.
Your idea of the perfect date is: A night in...I’d like to show off my cooking skills. What is a total deal breaker? Bad hygiene and bad grammar. Negative points if yew txt lyke dis. What is your favorite pickup line? Anything BUT an Aladdin reference. I don’t need you to show me a whole new world nor do I want to go on a magic carpet ride. haha. (I heard that too many times.)

10 Things To Do On Valentine’s Day, If You Don’t Have A Valentine
pRovided By: ToTAlFrATMovE.coM
Rent a full-blown Cupid costume. Make a pledge wear it to class. hit the bars and mingle with the other single, drunk people, who are more fun than your friends in relationships anyway. snapchat dick pics to every chick you know. take the money you would’ve spent on flowers and candy to the gentleman’s club. throw it at strippers. say things like “your dad didn’t love you, but i do.” Get stoned and make a Match.com profile to cyber with cougars. Cook two steak dinners. eat both steak dinners. Remember that you’re in college, and people who engage in serious relationships in college are legally insane. Celebrate your freedom accordingly. hangout in a graveyard with roses, acting like you’re grieving over a lost lover, and then pick up some crying chick who’s doing the same. Get whiskey drunk and go do man stuff, like hunting, fishing, or building a powerful goddamn structure. stop being a bitch and pretending valentine’s day is a real holiday that matters.
9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
TFMs of the Month
Never living out a relationship past the honeymoon stage. TFM. Having brothers you can’t stand unless you can’t stand. TFM. Scrooge McDuck setting aside time from raising his nephews just to swim laps in his vault of money. TFM. Saying “This is why I drink” at even the slightest inconvenience. TFM.
TSMs of the Month
getting a rose right when you get out of the limo. TSM. loving attention, but being thoroughly disinterested in boys that give it to you. TSM. getting him to do whatever you want and making him think it was his idea. TSM. Secretly wanting to congratulate people when they have a breakup. TSM.

How did you make the transition from from opera to EDM?
We started learning piano from a young age and we did voice…we had singing lessons. You don’t learn electronic music when you’re young. The only way to go through the grades is to be classically trained, and as soon as we could branch into contemporary music, we did.
what was it like playing the main stage at Ultra in 2010?
different and wonderful in their own way. Working with Kiley Minogue was amazing because she’s from Melbourne. Ke$ha was also amazing because it was before she was signed and she would come stay at our house in London. And David Guetta, our big bro, he’s our mentor.
There aren’t a lot of female DJs in the EDM world. what does it feel to be in a music genre that sometimes can feel like a boys club?
what are y’all listening to right now?
I’m listening to Ellie Goulding and I love Jack Johnson—jack Johnson takes me to another place, which I love. We’re constantly broadening our horizons. We can zone out to it, it’s not what we do, so I can really enjoy it.
Are there any crazy moments that stand out since you’ve been performing?
We were totally tripping out. It was a big, big moment for us and ever year going back, it’s unreal.
of all the people you have worked with (Ke$ha, brittany Spears, Niki Minaj, etc.) who was the best to work with?
We never really concentrate on the fact that we’re girls—we’ve never been boys. It might be more male dominated, but we’re fine with that and we’ve found the guys have been very supportive.
what was like to be named the highestranked female DJs ever, at 46, on DJ MAg’s top 100 list?
“I feel like our fans, really, are crazy unreal. Last night a guy shaved Nervo into the back of his head. I think our fans are just the craziest and the best. We had someone tattoo the logo on their arm.
what would you be doing if you weren’t doing music?
We can’t say favorites because everyone’s so
Incredible again—another pinching ourselves moment. DJ MAG top 100 was a big surprise for us…we had no idea we would’ve made the top 50.
I don’t think we would be doing anything but music. I think we would keep doing it. Music is our lives, we love it. Maybe if I had to say one thing, I’d say chefs. Cooking for us is very therapeutic.

ScAN For AN AwESoME glIMPSE AT UME!
AgE: 17 HoMETowN: MADrID, SPAIN
what was the first show/concert you ever went to? It was a Fedde le
Grand show at Dreamers (Marbella, Spain) when I was 14 years old. I was so so so so impressed by the whole night, like reactions from the crowd, amazing show… after that I realized what I wanted to do in the future.
HoMETowN: cHIcAgo KrIS, 25; JAHAN, 23; yASMINE, 20
How would you describe your style?
who are your influences?
I have so many influences and so many DJs and producers that I love! I really like Wolfgang Gartner, Knife Party, Noisia, Skrillex…
If you weren’t an artist and doing this, what would you be doing?
Heavy. Sexy. Sweaty. Raging. Dirty. Emotional.
what’s the craziest thing that’s ever happened to you at show?
the theme song for the 2012 MVP basketball games and playing on national television. It was very fucking cool to experience that.
If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing?
I mean, I would never, never, never do anything that I don’t like. So, if I wasn’t a DJ, I’d probably be a wakeboard rider because that’s my second passion!
what are three fun facts about you?
Jahan was crowd surfing during our last song at Meltdown in Dallas, and she missed the crowd by the smallest amount and sliced into her leg on the barrier. She didn’t even notice and crowd surfed while her leg was gashed open. She had to get stitches after.
what has been the most memorable part of your career thusfar?
IF we had to answer, Rain Man used to want to be a soccer player, Yasmine would probably own a restaurant or probably be doing something else in the hospitality industry, and Jahan would have continued her studies at college.
what are three fun facts about Krewella?
Well, first of all, I hate vegetables. Secondly, I hate vegetables! Last but not least: I really HATE vegetables! I guess you can say I hate vegetables three times.

woRds: SAM SUMPTEr
feeling lonely and lover-less this feb the 14th? Never fear! in this crazed world of soul mate seekers, there’s sure to be someone as desperate for devotion—and just as scared of a future of frozen dinners and despair—as you are. the trick is simply finding ‘em. so invest in some advertising, take advantage of technology and, hell, harass the homeless! love is out there, kids; you just have to lower your standards.
craigslist the creepers
lonely? Class it up with a Craigslist classified. sure a solid 75% of your responses will be from convicted sex offenders, but that’s a risk you’re totally willing to take, right?!
buy a billboard
Nothing says sexy more than 60 square feet of your fabulous face pleading for a soul mate on the side of the highway.
photo: SIDEWALK FLYING
take advantage of technology to land a lover. Just @ randoms all over the place and # the hell out of ‘em. finding love in less than 140 characters is simple, swearzies.
bribe a bum
fond of beards, soup and shopping carts? score a down-on-their-luck lover and bang the night away in their box! Just don't light any candles under that cardboard roof.
Examine your Exes
the fatal flaw of every old flame fades away on the 14th, whether it’s clinginess, cavities, a criminal record or Chlamydia. (actually you might need antibiotics for that last one.)

• Divide ground turkey into 3 sections and make three different things for the week. meatballs, tacos, meatloaf…the possibilities are endless. • Don’t forget the freezer. When you cook, think about making enough for leftovers, not only for that week but to put in the freezer for later. • If your parents have a Costco membership, ask them to get you a few $10 gift cards.
