Keep Denton Festive.

Have you ever noticed how well Rage Against the Machine's 1999 music video for “Sleep Now in the Fire” holds up? Aside from much of the clip's political rhetoric — which still rings very much true — the video also predicted Donald Trump's run at the presidency.

It's true.

As it turns out, we're pretty good predictors ourselves. No, we can't necessarily tell you what you'll be up to 16 years from now — hey, we're not that good — but we can at least make a pretty good guess as to where you'll be spending the next seven days.
