Do you believe in true love? Are you a romantic fool in constant search of the one thing that so many novels, poems, and films have been dedicated to, or are you one of those people who doesn’t have much faith in love, if any at all, and who mocks the bold “explorers” searching for their one true love?
Regardless of which group you belong to, here are ten love stories that will renew or even reinforce your faith in love.

Throughout the centuries myths and folktales have enjoyed immense popularity in society and although the phrase “urban legend” is synonymous in most people’s minds with “false belief,” the term actually indicates a more complex social phenomenon related to the production and transmission of folk narratives—narratives which are indeed usually false, but which can also, on rare occasions, prove to be true.

According to the academic definition of the term, “popular culture” is the entirety of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, images, and other phenomena that are within the mainstream of a given culture, especially Western culture of the early to mid-20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. However, here at TCmag we kind of disagree with the aforementioned definition since we tend to believe that “pop culture” dates back to antiquity and revolves around anything that can brainwash the masses to a particular extent for specific purposes, such as consumerism and cultural propaganda.

This is the main reason why many modern researchers and scientists believe that the secret to longevity and possibly to immortality is hidden in nature, to be more specific, in other living organisms that appear to live unrealistically long. Trust us, these organisms are much older than your grandma, and so, on today’s list we will take a closer look at these 25 living fossils….READ MORE
Many scandals marred Michael Jackson’s personal life, overshadowing his otherwise remarkable musical career. One such scandal was the obvious change in his appearance, especially his skin color, which started from the mid-eighties to slowly but surely turn from dark to white. By the mid-nineties when Jackson released his album History (1995), it was more than obvious even to his most dedicated fans that the man of Thriller (1982) looked nothing like the man who had recently married Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie…..READ MORE
