Interview With Alex Pall Of The Alternative Pop Duo The Chainsmokers

Posted on December 03, 2018

The Chainsmokers consist of New York DJ Alex Pall and Syracuse University graduate Andrew Taggart. The duo has had a number of hit songs in the EDM genre over the last few years, but is best known for the song Closer, which earned them a Grammy. They used a featured singer named Halsey on the popular song, and in an interview that Alex Pall did with, he stated that working with her was incredible, due to the fact that he saw her as being someone who is cool and unique with a strong voice and unapologetic style.

In the same interview, Alex Pall was asked about how he got his start in the music industry, and he replied that he had taken a big interest in the art of DJing when he was growing up. He said it started as a hobby, but after he showcased his skills around New York in the area where he lived, he turned it into a career. He was introduced to Andrew Taggart by a music manager, and shortly afterwards, the two became band partners and began writing songs and doing background vocals for other artists. It was Andrew who co-wrote the song Closer with another friend of theirs while they were all on a tour bus one day.

Other hit songs The Chainsmokers created are Selfie, Roses, Waterbed and Don’t Let Me Down. Alex Pall expressed that he writes songs for the band that he cares about and that relate to his passions, interests and political views. When he was asked about what major purchases the band had made after achieving financial success, he said that they were not the type of guys that would go out and buy expensive cars. But he revealed that he had bought a home in the Hollywood Hills that he let well-known eccentric interior designer Peti Lau design in her Aristo Freak style. He said he chose her because her style is closer to his own.

Before the interview ended, Alex Pall revealed that The Chainsmokers have tons of great new music that they are ready to put out to the public.

Bringing In The Holidays With Wengie

Posted on December 06, 2016

Make your own crystal stars that you can hang on your Christmas tree with the help of Wengie’s hacks for the holiday season. Bend a pipe cleaner into the shape of a star or any other shape that you want. Attach the shape to a Popsicle stick with a string. Add half a cup of Borax to two cups of boiling water. Mix until the Borax is melted before pouring into a mason jar. Hang the pipe cleaners inside. After six to 24 hours, crystals will begin to form on the cleaners.


Strawberries and whipped cream can be used to make cute Santas for any party or to enjoy at home. Cut the tip off of the strawberry, add cream between the berry and the top to make it look like a Santa face and hat. Add small buttons of cream and eyes with small chocolate chips. It might seem like storing wrapping paper is a headache, but if you use a toilet paper roll or a paper towel roll on the outside of the paper, it will hold everything in place so that it doesn’t unroll.


Bend a clothes hangar into a circle to create a wreath. Untwist the ends of the hangar with pliers. Thread ornaments of all colors and sizes onto the wire, making a beautiful wreath to hang on the wall or on the door. Position the ornaments so that there are two rows instead of one as this will make the wreath look as full as possible.
