The Partier’s Guide to College

As August heats up, thousands of TauBu fans are headed to college. If you’re matriculating (big word, eh?) as an of-age drinker and new to the college party scene, the TauBu Girls have a few helpful tips.

  1. “Show up fashionably late,” says TauBu Girl Edita. “The college party scene doesn’t start jumping until after 10:30 p.m. And nothing screams ‘I’m a freshman’ like showing up all eager-beaver an hour ahead of time. At best, it’s awkward. At worst, you won’t be invited back for the next one.”
  2. “Ladies, leave your skinny jeans and Jimmy Choos locked away in your dorm,” says TauBu Girl Ginny. “Especially if you’re headed to a house party or basement party. If you’re partying right, you’re dancing all night and that gets hot. Plus, you can count on getting spilled upon on a pretty regular basis, so that high-dollar designer dress is not a good idea either. Instead, rock a pair of Daisy Dukes with a cute, flowy top or don a sexy-sweet sundress and sandals. Most college parties are pretty casual.”
  3. “Girls, don’t show up with your male entourage. Guys, make sure you don’t show up without a flock of females,” says TauBu Girl CeCe. “Yes – this is a straight-up double standard, but you just gotta work it, especially if your party hosts are guys. No guy wants to see a potential hook-up show up with a gaggle of other guys. So girls-only groups showing up at the door will get lots of attention. Of course, your guy friends will be welcome, ladies – just arrange for them to show up a half-hour later. Guys, you’ll be welcomed quicker if you show up with several ladies. One for you and a few fun-loving singles is your best-bet scenario.”
  4. “Get to know the hosts,” says TauBu Girl Eden. “At most college parties, 90 percent of the guests have no idea who’s doing the honors. Seek out your hosts and strike up a conversation with them. Making nice will help ensure you know when and where the next big throwdown is taking place.”

Above all, have a blast, but drink legally and responsibly. Your college years just might be your best yet, and you’ll want to be around to remember them 20 years from now.

TauBu Girls’ July Movie Picks

The summer blockbuster season is fully ablaze. Here are the TauBu Girls‘ picks for the best movies to see in July.

Savages, July 6: TauBu Girl CeCe was first in line to see Savages, the Oliver Stone-directed crime thriller starring Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson as Chon and Ben, two high-end pot growers who must face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend played by Blake Lively. The merciless head of the Baja Cartel, played by Salma Hayek, and her enforcer, played by Benicio Del Toro, think that forcing Chon and Ben to join them will be easy. Oh, but they sorely underestimate the two friends’ unbreakable bond and their love for the beautiful Ophelia. Add a dirty DEA agent played by John Travolta, and you’ve got a vicious, high stakes battle of wills. Just a warning – a few taboo torture scenes caused several women in the audience to walk out of the screening, CeCe says. But if you can stomach the violence, the story line and the strong cast make this a great cinematic experience.

Dark Knight Rises, July 20: You might not know it, but TauBu Girl Megan is a bit of a superhero geek. So you know she’ll be at the front of the line on opening night of Dark Knight Rises, the latest in the Batman series. The story picks up eight years after Batman took the fall for Two Face’s crimes and features Bane, a new terrorist played by Tom Hardy. Gotham’s finest is struggling to hold Bane and his plans to destroy the city at bay. So, despite his tarnished reputation, the caped crusader, again played by Christian Bale, resurfaces to help protect the city that has branded him an enemy. Also starring are Hollywood heavy-hitters Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Ann Hathaway and Michael Caine.

The Watch, July 27: TauBu Girl Nicole is a bit of a brainiac, but still loves a great, goofy spoof flick. She’s looking forward to the sci-fi comedy The Watch, starring Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade as four suburban dads-turned-neighborhood watch guys. They really just want an honorable excuse to ditch their boring day-to-day family routines one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they man up to save their neighborhood and the world from total annihilation.

TauBu Girls See Prometheus, Share their All Time Fave Alien Flicks

The TauBu Girls aren’t much for chick flicks. So they were stoked for a GNO to see Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s newest film about a team of scientists who head out into the far reaches of space to investigate alien life forms.

The crew boards the U.S.S. Prometheus in the year 2089 and hibernates with an android at the flight controls, arriving landing on a distant planet with a large, temple-like pyramid structure in 2093. A giant humanoid head statue, dead aliens, a crazy storm and ampoules of a weird black liquid all play a part in the near total destruction of the crew, the ship and, potentially, the human race.

We won’t spoil it for you, but suffice it to say that the TauBu Girls loved it. And apparently, so did the rest of the world. Prometheus grossed $141.5 million worldwide over the weekend, coming in second (behind Madagascar 3) in U.S. box office figures.

Since they’ve promised not to spill any spoilers on Prometheus, the TauBu Girls decided they’d share their other all-time favorite alien flicks…

  • TauBu Girl CeCe: “I’m a big fan of all three Alien movies, but Alien 3 is my personal favorite for one reason – any woman who can rock a fully shaven head like Sigourney Weaver has my respect. Bald, badass and beautiful!”
  • TauBu Girl Megan: “I’m a sucker for classic films, so the original The Day the Earth Stood Still from 1951 is one I can watch over and over again. It has a great, before-its-time twist in that the aliens are the good guys and the humans are the bad guys. The aliens basically tell us to grow up and get along or die.”
  • TauBu Girl Nicole:Who says alien movies have to be all seriousness and special effects? Mars Attacks! has the funniest story lines, obnoxious characters and hilarious sight gags. I love crazy Grandma – ”They blew up Congress! Hahaha!’ And I want that Martian girl outfit, hair and all.”

Grab an ice cold TauBu of your favorite flavor and watch the trailers for the TauBu Girls top alien flick picks. And let us know which alien movie you like best on the TauBu Facebook fan page.

 


Meet CeCe Rocker: May 2012 TauBu Girl

May 2012 TauBu Girl CeCe Rocker's gorgeous looks have landed her on runways, in music videos and on the silver screen.

“I’ve always had a pathological urge to succeed,” says CeCe Rocker, a 5’7″ exotic beauty from Tampa, Florida. We believe her. That’s why she’s the May 2012 TauBu Girl.

CeCe rocks a runway like no one else. She’s done multiple high-profile fashion shows including Rock the Runway III for Urban Vision and Universal Music; the Energy Vampire Fashion Show for Pierre International Models; and (our favorite) the Kae Couture Swimwear Showcase for Kae Couture and ITM Models.

CeCe also has done print modeling for publications like Urban Mainstream Magazine. She’s appeared in multiple music videos for hip hop and rap artists including Drizzo & MSMG, Montana Da Mac, Gucci Mane and Juvenile and Smack Water. And you might have caught a glimpse of her playing Diogo’s girlfriend in last year’s Fast Five starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris.

No doubt this “Pathological Vixen” is set headed for fame. And she’s a big fan of the new TauBu Strawberry Daiquiri. So, we’re stoked to have her on the TauBu team.
