Latest Travis Scott ‘JACKBOYS’ Merch Drop Includes Fire Extinguisher and Other Car Tools

While the first initial drop for Travis Scott and Cactus Jack Record’s compilation album JACKBOYS included an array of T-shirts, hats, accessories and a helmet, the next drop has been revealed and caters much more to the niche automotive youth culture.

The drop in question highlights even further the rapper’s association with car culture, specifically the previously referenced classic BMW M3 E30. Two new T-shirt designs are revealed, both of which feature car culture shenanigans like stereo theft and cop-car rampaging, while the former thief character is solidified in a keychain and also on a pair of black sweatpants.

More notably however are the new inclusions of a fire extinguisher, toolbox and even a steering wheel lock, made famous in the late 80s/early 90s as the go-to theft deterrent known simply as «The Club.» The device which would prevent car jackers from turning the car full-lock when attached and was a symbol of the automotive culture in the late 20th century. All three car tools highlight the JACKBOYS logo and are bundled with digital downloads of the album, as do the rest of the merch.

In addition to the items available, a customized 1998 BMW M3 E30 is also available. The car, which features the JACKBOYS album art vinyl-plastered all over the vehicle, would be won via auction — the website asks for you to sign up with your email address for more information to come.

All items are now available on the JACKBOYS merch website and ship within 4-5 weeks of ordering. Prices range from $12 USD for the keychain to $195 USD for the fire extinguisher. In case you haven’t already, stream JACKBOYS now.

Мы можем многое!

Это был очень несправедливый год. Я думаю, у любого из вас есть повод для гнева и возмущения. Многие столкнулись с беспределом. По всей стране люди выходили на митинги по самым разным причинам. И я рад, если вы в 2019 году не стали терпеть несправедливость.

Это был вовсе не безнадёжный год. Я не сторонник теории, что ничего нельзя поменять и нет никакого смысла бороться. В Екатеринбурге люди вышли и отстояли свой сквер! В Москве удалось отбить журналиста Ивана Голунова. Силовики подбросили ему наркотики, но даже, казалось бы, безнадёжное дело развалилось, а последующее давление вынудило возбудить уголовное дело против преступников в погонах. Удалось отбить некоторых задержанных по так называемому «московскому делу», кто-то из них смог избежать реальных сроков. И я рад, если именно вы были неравнодушны и внесли свой вклад в эти истории.

Уважение. Такое простое и понятное слово – оно крепко вплетено в нашу жизнь. Мы формально подписываем этим словом каждое письмо, мы бросаем его другу в знак поддержки. Даже последний алкаш, собрав остатки сил, спрашивает собутыльника, уважает ли он его. Но вокруг стало так мало настоящего, искреннего уважения.

Мы перестали уважать себя. Можно ли уважать себя, когда ты закрываешь глаза на несправедливость? Нет. Но всегда проще найти оправдание несправедливости и беспределу. И мы делаем этот выбор. Я часто слышу пафосные речи и читаю комментарии, в которых звучат слова «Родина» и «патриотизм». Но чаще всего это пустые слова. Мы перестали любить свою землю, потому что смирение и равнодушие несовместимы с любовью.

Я много езжу по стране и давно заметил, что чем требовательнее жители, тем лучше город, тем больше порядка. Чем активнее люди критикуют, протестуют, участвуют в жизни своего города, тем быстрее что-то меняется к лучшему. Настоящий патриотизм начинается, когда вам действительно не безразлично ваше будущее и вы готовы его строить.

Если бы в Екатеринбурге люди смирились с тем, что без их ведома мэрия решила воткнуть в парке храм, то сейчас там уже заканчивали бы отливать фундамент. Иван Голунов сидел бы полгода в СИЗО, а мы бы равнодушно читали редкие новости с заседаний судов, если бы мы поверили, что раз за дело взялись ФСБшники, раз государственная машина наехала на простого журналиста, то уже точно ничего нельзя сделать. Если бы люди поверили, что на выборах всё решено, что невозможно что-то поменять, невозможно выиграть у государства, то Даша Беседина не стала бы депутатом Мосгордумы, а в Петербурге не выбрали бы 100 оппозиционных депутатов. Потому что смирение и равнодушие – это в первую очередь потеря уважения к себе.

Вы сильные и прекрасные, вы даже не представляете, на что способны. Ваш голос реально может всё изменить. Вам же не сложно иногда делать выбор? Хорошо, я приведу ещё пример. Ваш звонок или сообщение могут сделать счастливым близкого вам или совершенно незнакомого человека. Это же так просто, так легко, а результат будет кратно превосходить затраченные усилия. Ваше участие нужно многим людям, и вы даже не представляете, сколько людей помогут вам, когда вам будет нужна помощь.

Когда я запускал фонд «Внимание», я думал, что никому это будет не интересно. Но тысячи людей со всей России начали перечислять деньги, и мы смогли восстановить уже 16 объектов по всей стране. Кто-то перечисляет совсем небольшие суммы, 50 или 100 рублей в месяц. Но именно такие пожертвования позволяют работать и менять мир вокруг к лучшему. Когда мы объявили о том, что участвуем в выборах в Москве и Петербурге, сотни волонтёров пошли помогать. Люди начали жертвовать деньги, и благодаря им мы смогли победить.

А вы знаете, что если всего 15% жителей России будут жертвовать всего 1 рубль в день, у нас не будет детей-сирот? Всего один рубль в день! Вы же даже не наклонитесь, чтобы поднять его с пыльного тротуара. И все сироты, которые сейчас находятся в детских домах, будут устроены в семьи. Не будет горя и искалеченных судеб. Так мало надо вложить и такой может быть результат.

Если бы каждый из тех, кто смотрит сейчас этот ролик, поддержал фигурантов «московского дела», то сейчас они встречали бы Новый год не в тюрьмах, а, как и вы, за новогодним столом, со своими родными. Так мало надо сделать, чтобы сотворить чудо!

Этот год показал, что всё возможно, что нет ни одного повода опускать руки.

Каким будет следующий год, зависит только от вас.

Я поздравляю вас с Новым годом. Я желаю вам не быть равнодушными.

Я желаю вам в новом году уважения и справедливости.

Я желаю вам много чудес. Они не произойдут сами собой, но именно вы можете стать человеком, благодаря которому чудо свершится.

С Новым годом!

Hackers Took Over Mariah Carey’s Twitter Account, Poked Fun at Eminem

On New Year’s Eve, hackers infiltrated singer Mariah Carey‘s official Twitter account and took the opportunity to drop some disses towards rapper Eminem.

The account @mariahcarey was hacked yesterday afternoon with multiple tweets emerging, most of which pointing at Eminem directly. The tweets took advantage of the opportunity to continue the beef he is having with fellow entertainer Nick Cannon; the feud was brought up only a few weeks prior in Fat Joe’s track «Lord Above» where Em sparked the relationship rumors between him and Mariah, while Cannon retorted with his own diss track «The Invitation.»

Within the hacked tweets, one in particular denotes Chuckling Squad is responsible for the hack, stating «.. zzz we running everyone 2020.» The tirade ends with Mariah returning to her feed, claiming she was resting while this transpired; «I take a freaking nap and this happens?» she writes.

The tweets have since been deleted and her account re-secured.

The long-time songstress recently broke three Guinness World Records for her world-renowned song «All I Want for Christmas Is You,» securing awards for highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Hot 100 by a solo artist, the most streamed track on Spotify within 24 hours, and the most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song.

There’s more to the adorable Archie and his hat than meets the eye. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a video to their Instagram the day before the New Year which included a photo of their almost 8-month-old son wearing a pom-pom hat as he snuggles with his father. 

The photo was reportedly taken during the recent Thanksgiving holiday.

Free New Year’s resolution idea: Learn to cook one new thing

Free New Year's resolution idea: Learn to cook one new thing

New Year’s resolutions are generally a scourge, but if you must make one it’s best to choose something quantifiable

You could dream up a super broad goal with multiple phases, micro-goals to achieve your desired end. That would be fine. Or you could do something extremely easy, with only one step. You could cook one (1) new recipe.

Even experienced cooks have kitchen hang-ups. Some people are afraid to cook fish. Some have never mustered up the patience for soft scrambled eggs. Others are always jealous of their coworker’s expertly designed lunch salads but haven’t taken the plunge themselves. (Who has time to chop all that stuff, anyway?) A New Year’s resolution is the perfect opportunity to get rid of these hang-ups.  Read more…

5 Techniques to increase memory retention for $2

When it comes to upgrading our brain power, too many of us think in terms of wholesale improvement. We want to increase our IQ or our attention and generally, we seek to ‘level up’ as though we were a Pokemon or a Dragon Ball Z character. “It… it’s over 9,000!”With nootropics and brain training, it’s certainly possible to add a couple of IQ points for what that’s worth. And perhaps with enough brain training, we might be able to slightly increase our attention.

Новогодние поздравления президентов. Суровые годы уходят, за ними другие придут


В этом ролике поздравления с Новым годом от 3-х президентов.

По-моему, самое лучшее получилось у Путина, потому что оно – самое короткое. Чем короче поздравление, тем лучше – люди уже хотят начать выпивать и закусывать. Но все равно можно было бы и короче, хотя бы на 30 секунд.
Кое-кто осудил внешний вид Путина, что, мол, у него слишком большая голова для ширины его плеч. Ну, не знаю. В принципе, большая голова – это, скорее, достоинство, чем недостаток, но мне кажется, что такой эффект получился от того, что темное пальто слилось с темным фоном.
Вообще, фон был слишком темным, и мрачноватым: получилось похожим на выступление Темного Властелина. В другой раз надо сделать поздравление на ярком фоне, что-нибудь придумать такое праздничное.

Сам Путин был грустным, предупредил о грядущих тяжелых временах вспомнил о Победе, а всю надежду на хоть какой-то просвет возложил на старые елочные игрушки, которые должны заставить нас вспомнить об общем прошлом.

Общее прошлое – это прекрасно. Но что же все же общего у меня с гражданами, которые на моих глазах обзавелись миллиардами долларов и каждый год умножают свой доход? За год 110 российских миллиардеров стали богаче на 21% и обладают 51 миллиардом долларов. 3120 человек в РФ смогли довести свое состояние до отметки $100 млн. В России насчитывается 246 тыс. долларовых миллионеров.

А всего у нас – 146 млн. человек. Кстати, ходят упорные слухи, что граждане, получающие меньше МРОТ – это 15,2% работников, не будут платить подоходный налог. А вот всем остальным его повысят на 3%, и вот здесь мы будем в одной лодке с миллиардерами и долларовыми миллионерами. Так что нас объединяют не только игрушки, а еще и плоская шкала подоходного налога. Пока подоходный налог
• 9% с суммы доходов в виде процентов по облигациям с ипотечным покрытием, эмитированным до 01.01.2007. Такая же ставка установлена с сумм доходов учредителей доверительного управления ипотечным покрытием, полученных на основании приобретения ипотечных сертификатов участия, выданных до 01.01.2007.
• 13% НДФЛ с суммы доходов физических лиц (заработной платы, вознаграждений по гражданско-правовым договорам, доходов от продажи имущества и др.). С 2015 года такая же ставка действует для дивидендов. Базу для налога с дивидендов необходимо рассчитывать, отделяя ее от других доходов, облагаемых по ставке 13%.
• 15% с сумм дивидендов, полученных физическими лицами — нерезидентами от долевого участия в российских организациях.
• 30% с сумм всех прочих доходов, полученных физическими лицами — нерезидентами.
• 35% с сумм выигрышей, призов и участия в любых конкурсах, сумм процентов от вкладов в банках (в части превышения установленных размеров ставки ЦБ РФ), сумм экономии на процентах с полученных кредитов и др.

Лукашенко в своем выступление тоже был мрачен и напирал на то, что у белорусов впервые в истории появилось суверенное государство, и как они гордятся этим обстоятельством. Вспомнил он и о 75-летии окончания войны.
Да, а как у них с подоходным налогом?
• на доходы, получаемые в качестве дивидендов – 13%;
• на доходы от предпринимательской, адвокатской, нотариальной деятельности – 16%;
• на доходы физических лиц и индивидуальных предпринимателей, связанные с парком высоких технологий – 9%;
• на доходы от сдачи недвижимости, для физических лиц (в случае, если доходы не превышают 5 555 рублей за 2017 год, 6 116 рублей – за 2018 год) – устанавливаются фиксированные суммы налога, их размер определяется областным и Минским городским Советами депутатов.
• для физических лиц на все иные доходы – 13%.
В Беларуси насчитывается около 20 тыс. человек с личным состоянием свыше $1 млн. Такова оценка управляющего минского «А-Клуба» ЗАО «Альфа-Банк» Алексея Мацукина, сообщает коммуникационное агентство АГТ.
Долларовые миллионеры в Беларуси составляют всего 0,2% населения страны. «Это практически совпадает со среднемировым показателем.
За последние два года число миллионеров в Беларуси выросло в 1,5—2 раза.

Наконец, выступление Зеленского. Это его первое поздравление в роли президента. Возможно, поэтому в голосе его звучало счастье. Выступление Зеленского было очень-очень длинное для новогоднего поздравления. Текст был написан в русле традиционных КВНовских «Домашних заданий», что-то типа того, что надо жить дружно. Зеленским были высказаны и крамольные тезисы: оказывается, нет разницы, как называется улица – главное, чтобы по ней можно было ходить (А когда все это начиналось, то говорили: «Зачем улица, если она не ведет к храму?»), оказывается, взгляды людей, род их занятий и место проживания не важны: важно, что они все украинцы. Более того, после речи президента пошли поздравления из разных регионов Украины, и кое-где говорили по-русски!

На Украине 7 долларовых миллиардеров. Британо-американская консалтинговая компания Wealth-X спрогнозировала на Украине один из самых высоких в мире темпов роста числа долларовых миллионеров. Кроме того, было зарегистрировано более тысячи гривенных миллионеров.

В общем, нормальные люди понимали бы, что в их интересах не грызся друг с другом, а поискать, в чем их общий интерес. Но вот уже 28 лет это не получается.

Но почему-то он говорил о картонных игрушках. У вас такие были? У нас были немецкие, трофейные. Прекрасные были шарики, но, увы, в бог знает каком году наш кот решил залезть на елку… Вот ведь вредное животное! Этот кот имел возможность гулять на улице, и мог лазить по любым деревьям (Любил залезть и начать орать так, что его вызволял весь двор), а вот ему еще и наша елка понадобилась! А до трагического падения елки кот разбил несколько шаров, сбивая их лапой, пока мы спали.
В итоге у меня осталось всего несколько таких шаров. Еще на елке есть

2020 iOS predictions: iPad Pro and so many iPhones (Macworld)

All told, 2019 was a relatively quiet year for the iPhone and iPad. Apple brought back some old favorites to round out the iPad product line, and a new batch of incrementally improved iPhones was released in the fall, as anyone could have predicted.

But quiet years aren’t really quiet. They generally mean that at Apple Park, there are projects coming to fruition, only to be sprung on an unsuspecting public the next year. And so, once again, I present one man’s attempt to guess what projects will finally become products in 2020.

7 Mistakes Beginning Video Editors Make

So you’re excited about editing and you’ve got all of your programs ready to go, you ave your raw footage, but whenever you go to edit, you can’t create what you actually visualized in your head. You’ve learned the basics of your editing program (Adobe Premiere, Avid, Final Cut X etc.), but it’s still not enough to really make the best video you know you could make.

Well if you are new to the editing it’s easy to make mistakes that may cost you in the long run. So to help you out we are going to give you tips to help you avoid 7 Mistakes Beginning Video Editors Make.

These tips will collectively help you become a more thoughtful video editor and will help you to create a personalized workflow for your own projects!

1. Being Unorganized

Gathering all your media into one organized area is key. Final Cut and Avid have their own way of organizing media. In other editors you’ll want to make sure to keep all your media in one place. The problem with having clips in various places on your computer is that if you ever change a folder name or move something it will make the media offline in your project.

MOVING A FILE FROM A PROJECT CAN MAKE IT OFFLINE

Even if you have to duplicate a copy of it to put in a folder to edit with it may be worth it. Also to speed up the time you take to look for media separate your media by type. Music and audio can be put in one folder. Photos can go in another. Graphic and text can go in other. You may have another folder for overlays and stock footage as well.

2. Not Preparing Files for Editing

If you have a photo or graphics that are 300 dpi or in CMYK mode it may give you errors or issues in editing. At the very least it may slow down your renders. It may be worth lowering the resolution to between 72 to 150 and changing image to RGB.

LARGE IMAGES WITH HIGH RESOLUTION AND IN CMYK MODE CAN GIVE YOU ISSUES

You can keep a master that is full resolution but often it’s best to edit with the file formatted for video. If you have videos that are very large files taking up multiple gigabytes it may be worth compressing them in program like Adobe Media Encoder. Compressing your videos is worth it if your final product is going to be compressed anyway. Sometimes editing large gigabyte files can really slow down your editing. If you do want an uncompressed file for your final edit you may still want to create a low res file to edit with and replace it with the full res before exporting.

3. Not Naming & Logging

It’s really easy to get in a rush and not want to name your clips or make your sequence names original. But when you are looking for a clip and you are looking through thousands of clips called 5966, 5977, 5970.mp4 it can really slow down your edits and make it easy for you to make mistakes. Also name your sequences unique names that will make it clear what they are.

Final Draft 1,2,3 don’t tell you much later on. Also use the notes option in the meta data that many of the editing programs have. Adding notes about clips and sequence can save you time later especially if you are looking for something specific. So you can give more specific info about the sequences and videos.

4. Not Saving Drafts and Versions

CREATE VERSIONS OR DRAFTS SO YOU USE IF YOU MAKE MISTAKE

It’s not enough to just save your edits. You should also save and make duplicate your versions. You may do two hours of editing and realize something got accidentally deleted 45 edits ago but don’t know what. Or you may have realized your first version was better. Having various versions lets you go back to previous edits and borrow from them. Another benefit of doing this is that sometimes a sequence gets corrupted or has errors. Having a previous version will help. Also make sure your auto save is set to save often.

5. Creating Accidental Jump Cuts

BE CAREFUL OF BLACK FRAMES AND JUMPCUTS

It’s really easy to edit from a zoomed out timeline when you do this you may not see two clips that have one frame of black or a frame from a previous cut in it. So, make sure to keep an eye out for those extra frames you didn’t mean to have. Many editing programs have a magnet/snap tool option that makes two clips lock together when they are close and thus removing black frames.

6. Not Leaving Up Clip For Long Enough

Sometimes you want the edit to be fast, but sometimes it’s too fast. Was the clip up long enough for people to tell what’s happening. If there’s a lot going on in-clip, you’ll need to be mindful of people’s vision. They will need to scan the image with their eyes and that will take some time – especially text. If you can’t read it out loud in the time the clip is up then it’s probably too short to read.

7. Not Focusing on the End Product

Your video will need to look different depending on how it’s watched. For a big screen you probably want slightly slower cuts because it takes a second for your eyes to scan the image. If you video is for a smaller screen you probably want the graphic and text to be bigger so people can read it. There are different ways you’ll want your final product to look depending on who’s watching it. If it’s going to be seen in different places you may want to create different versions for each venue. 

You’ll also need to be thinking about the whole project while you are working on small sections. This pertains to longer length projects especially. Always remember that your editing in one section will affect the overall project, so try to remain consistent and with a certain theme & direction.

Hopefully these tips will help you avoid some common beginning editor mistakes and become a more efficient and well-equipped video editor.

‘Friends’ is off Netflix. Here’s where you can still watch.

'Friends' is off Netflix. Here's where you can still watch.

Welcome to a New Year and … no Friends on Netflix? 

Starting Jan. 1, if you’re in the U.S. you can no longer watch New York City’s most beloved fictitious friend group and listen to Phoebe’s smelly cat songs on Netflix. 

Instead you’ll have to buy (online or IRL) Friends DVDs and Blue-rays from sellers like Amazon, Walmart, and Target. You can also catch up (or let’s be honest, re-watch your favorite 10 episodes of Friends on loop) through online platforms like Amazon Video, Apple TV, Google Play, and Vudu.

Or (gasp!) you can actually watch episodes as they air regularly on networks such as TBS and Nickelodeon. It’s like going back in time! Read more…

Why the Levi’s 501 Remains the Ultimate Pair of Jeans

In his 2003 novel Pattern Recognition, William Gibson creates the coolest character ever to grace the pages of a book. Cayce Pollard is the world’s best coolhunter, and her highly astute ability to judge brands is largely due to the fact that she’s literally allergic to corporate logos and mascots.

She wears a series of uniforms referred to as “Cayce Pollard Units,” or CPUs. Gibson describes these as “things that could have been worn, to a general lack of comment, during any year between 1945 and 2000.” Her go-to items include shrunken Fruit of the Loom T-shirts, a Buzz Rickson MA-1 bomber jacket, and black Levi’s 501s with the arcuates on the back picked out and the branding on the buttons filed off.

It’s just one of many testaments to the humble jean’s ability to transcend trends. Its straight leg, regular waist, and enduring appeal will truly never go out of style. Of course, the main leg up Levi’s has on its competitors is a big differentiation point: They literally invented the modern jean.

During the Gold Rush of the 1800s, numerous people flocked to the wild west in hopes of striking it rich through digging through the dirt. Among them was Levi Strauss, who worked at his family’s dry goods business in New York, called J. Strauss Brother & Co.

Seeing opportunity in California, he packed his bags for San Francisco, selling items like clothes, tents, handkerchiefs, combs, bedding, and bags. One of his customers, a guy named Jacob Davis, co-invented a pair of rugged work pants made from a tough denim fabric, adding rivets to reinforce the construction. That’s the Levi’s story in a nutshell. But according to Jonathan Cheung, SVP of Levi’s® Design, the 501 actually didn’t become “jeans” as we know them today until the 1960s.

“The 501, the actual, I guess, lot number, as we refer to the Levi’s, is dated from around 1890 and that is a fair bit of time after the 501 as a jean was invented, and that was in the 1870s,” says Cheung. “Another interesting anecdote is Levi’s didn’t call them jeans themselves until the 1960s. That’s really when jeans crossed over into popular culture, so moved from purely blue-collar workwear into leisure-wear and casual-wear.”

There are stories upon stories about how Levi’s became a commonly accepted part of the modern wardrobe. Among the most famous is how singer Bing Crosby once couldn’t check into a Vancouver five-star hotel in 1951 because he arrived in head-to-toe denim. He got in when a hotel bellhop recognized him, but Levi’s took the opportunity to make him a custom denim tuxedo jacket from the same fabric used in the 501. In 2014, Levi’s Vintage Clothing—the label’s imprint specializing in archival reproductions—re-released a version of this jacket. As far as Canadian tuxedos go, it’s probably the best in its class.

The same could be said for the 501. In addition to its reputation for craftsmanship and a democratic fit, denim expert and trend forecaster Samuel Trotman thinks that it’s stories like Bing Crosby’s that have made the jeans so much more than just a sturdy pair of pants.

“It is the ultimate original jean, I guess. I guess if you close your eyes and imagine Levis, most people will probably think if the 501,” says Trotman. “I think from an industrial point of view, that it’s the most user tested piece of human clothing ever worn.”

As much as leather biker jackets have been part of the rebel uniform—well-worn 501s are probably what the badasses of yesterday, today, and tomorrow are wearing underneath them. From rockers like Eddie Cochrane and The Ramones to rap stars like Run DMC, N.W.A., and Snoop Dogg, denim has shaped the style of several subcultures throughout the years. Couple that with Levi’s provenance as the OG denim brand, and you have a recipe that, according to Seth Weiser, CEO and co-founder of vintage boutique What Comes Around Goes Around, makes for some untouchable staying power.

“It’s become the must-have of anyone who cares about fashion and denim, and ultimately I think that consumers always feel a comfort level with the 501 because it’s the known commodity. You know what it’s going to be like,”  he says.

Levi’s is no stranger to collaborating with high-end fashion designers. Its frequent collabs with Japanese designer Junya Watanabe featuring everything from poetic prints to artful patchwork, can fetch over $600 a pair. Meanwhile, its collabs with labels like VETEMENTS can be almost $2,000. But among its most consistent collaborators is streetwear pioneer Supreme.

“I actually think Supreme with Junya Watanabe are our longest-running collaborations,” says Cheung. “I think that’s also increased with the influence of streetwear into mainstream fashion and popular culture.  We’re mutual authenticators each in our own space. The collaborator on the other side gets is this absolute authenticity. Lots of people can do denim and lots of people can make jeans, but there’s only one Levi’s.”

Highsnobiety Style Editors Argue For & Against the Decade’s Most Hyped Items

For and Against is Highsnobiety’s reoccurring series where editors debate the style world’s issues of the day. In this installment, style editors Graeme Campbell, Max Grobe, and Noah Thomas sound off on some of the most hyped products of the last 10 years.

GC: I’m pretty sure ALYX was still a womenswear brand when hype around the Rollercoaster belt began bubbling up. Between it and the chest rig, it’s easy to forget the role Matthew Williams has played when it comes to guys experimenting with more outré clothing. Without him, I wonder if funky accessories like the Louis Vuitton harness would have become a thing. (FOR)

MG: I still find the ALYX buckle to be kind of genius. The strongest and most enduring brands have always found a way to signal themselves without egregious logos. Similar to Tiffany & Co. and robin egg blue, or Christian Louboutin’s red-bottomed heels, the silver buckle fastening — now found on caps, necklaces, and boots — is a perfect visual to tell people what ALYX label is about: sleek hardware, clean lines, utility, and sincerity. The humble inspiration from a rollercoaster ride at Six Flags makes it even better. (FOR)

NT: This was a nice change from the designer buckle belt that was the star of most outfits. The tucked in shirt to make sure we all saw what brand your belt was needed to end, and this rollercoaster belt helped make that happen. (FOR)

GC: I remember thinking “WTF” when we were first sent these a few years ago. They looked so beat up that someone called up Balenciaga to check whether they had accidentally given us used samples by mistake. Turns out, that was exactly how they were supposed to look.

At the time, never in a million years did I think these would reach the mainstream. Now I don’t bat an eyelid when I see someone walking down the street in a (usually fake) pair. Given that “ugly sneakers” are now the new normal — the Triple S being one of the driving forces behind that — it’s easy to take for granted just how avant-garde the design actually is. I’ve never, and would never, wear them, but the impact they’ve had upon the wider fashion sphere never fails to amaze me. They’re the reason you see FILA Disruptors on, like, every third person, and why your little sister wants those weird Alexander McQueen Stan Smiths with the monolithic midsole. (FOR)

MG: What a moment. The Balenciaga Triple S sums up so much of what this decade was pushing in terms of style: luxury, ugly, big, branded, ironic, and of course, maximalism — I mean, it’s a sneaker with three soles, hence the name.

The Triple S’ exaggerated shape could be interpreted as a reference to the large silhouettes that were favored by the brand’s founder and namesake Cristóbal Balenciaga, but yes, this was very much a “let’s give the people what they want” type of release. (FOR)

NT: The Triple S was the icing on the cake for the dad sneaker trend. It was the first time someone really took it there. It is said to have been influenced by the wave runner, but Demna decided to give the people what they ultimately wanted, which is for sure the king of chunky sneaks. (FOR)

GC: Before The Ten, Nike was kinda floundering on the sneakers collabs front. This didn’t half put them back on the map. If you asked a group of millennials prior to this release whether they’d rather wear Nike or adidas, I bet they’d go with the latter. In 2020, it would be the former. (FOR)

MG: This and the rest of “The Ten” reflect what Abloh does best: adopting the aesthetics of street culture, idiosyncratic product design, and generating unprecedented levels of sustained hype. (FOR)

NT: This is STILL shaking the world. Since Pyrex, Virgil has been sprinting to the top, and a massive part of that was because of how impactful his Off-White™ Jordans were when they came out. It was the first time anyone had seen a Jordan so deconstructed, looking better than the originals. (FOR)

GC: “Hey guys, I’m a luxury consumer — but also an idiot!” Seriously, I can think of, like, 250,000,000 better ways to spend $250. (AGAINST)

MG: I kind of like how corny this is and how it riffs off Bernie Sanders’ 2017 campaign — I am literally the idiot Graeme is quoting above who doesn’t know how to spend money. (FOR)

While the Balenciaga cap is not a political endorsement in itself (Gvasalia and his team were simply looking for “corporate” typefaces), I think it’s an accurate comment on the way politicians are now marketed in the same way brands and celebrities are. Case in point: Donald Glover being announced as Presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s creative consultant. (FOR)

GC: This trunk is ghastly. It is tasteless. It is, quite literally, painful to look at. But it is also a piece of history that will probably end up in a museum someday. Serious question, though — do any of the rich kids who bought it still even like Supreme? (FOR)

MG: The Louis Vuitton x Supreme trunk feels like a bizarre meta art piece now, a kind of literal pandora’s box that released some of the biggest evils of contemporary fashion — cash-grab collaborations, tactless design, and exorbitant pricing — into the world today. If I saw this in someone’s bedroom I would expect bodies inside it. (AGAINST)

NT: Although I was personally not at all into this collection, the homage paid to Dapper Dan was more than important, and opened the floodgates for high-end brands and streetwear brands to collaborate properly and effectively. (FOR)

GC: At this point, I feel the whole maximalist trend is a bit washed, especially when it comes to camp shirts. Loud (even ugly) design seems to have been trumped by gauzy materials and a more effeminate sensibility; think less Frankenstein’s monster and more Snow White. Miuccia burst the dam on this front, though, taking shirting to freaky new heights. As the New Yorker boldly declared, this is not clothing, this is performance art(FOR)

MG: This was probably one of Prada’s first big “hits” since the luxury streetwear aesthetic subsumed the mainstream. I remember earlier in the decade when editors used to describe Prada as lagging behind its millennial-friendly competitors, such as Gucci and Balenciaga, due to the lack of brash logos and reluctance to “pivot to internet.”

As if to combat this, the half-and-half graphic shirt is almost made for the internet and Instagram, and although it doesn’t really have a great shelf-life, I think it was a great product that re-surfaced a classic “ugly” Prada print from SS11. (FOR)

NT: Prada’s camp shirts became like Pokémon’s. You wanted to collect them all. The prints and fabrics have made these a street style must. (FOR)

GC: In 20 years from now, when global economies crumble and we regress into a hunter-gatherer society, I will sit in my cave listlessly, roasting an emaciated squirrel over a small campfire, reminiscing about the time I once considered spending $258 on a tiny coin holder. (FOR)

MG: The tiny colorful coin purse brings to light what Jacquemus excels at: well-designed products with a playful sense of proportion. In general, there were lots of decent unisex bags being released towards the end of the decade, and I suppose this hyperbolically small coin purse sums up a new demand for non-traditional men’s accessories. (FOR)

NT: Men have finally realized the undeniable practicality of carrying around a bag, and have then decided to have to run with this. Simon Jacquemus has made one of the hottest bags of the decade with his mini bag. Both men and women have swarmed to the sweet little accessory that comes in every color imaginable. (FOR)

GC: It’s easy to shit on Vetements these days, but some of its earlier stuff was genuinely cool — the hoodies and jeans in particular. If I were to associate any silhouette with the last 10 years, it would definitely be Demna’s oversized aesthetic. Paying $900 for this, though? Imagine how distraught you’d be after it ended up in Urban Outfitters(FOR)

MG: I’m still laughing at the original price. I can’t wait until we can all look back at Vetements for the social experiment it really was. (AGAINST)

NT: When this heavy cotton oversized Snoop tee was on racks for a $1,000, the internet went crazy. It was so hard for people to understand why and who would pay for such a thing. Since then, the prices of clothes in general have skyrocketed, and a $1,000 dollar tee is still nuts, but not as wild as it was back in 2016. Demna definitely made the first meme-friendly high fashion brand. (FOR)

GC: Stripped of hype and without any exclusivity, you realize these shoes are pretty flimsy and the colorways are rubbish. Crazy to think they were one of the most sought-after sneakers ever. Kanye can and has done so much better.

MG: Looks cozy, but wouldn’t wear them myself. (AGAINST)

NT: I will never understand the appeal in this shoe, I’m sorry. (AGAINST)

GC: It’s kinda hilarious that an item by Dries Van Noten — traditionally seen as the thinking man’s designer — has made this list. Still, no one can deny that these Verner Panton shirts were a sensation in the summer, worn by everyone from Beyoncé to Swae Lee to one of the Jonas Brothers whose name I forget. Without veering into oral sodomy, this collection was honestly so good.

I’m kind of against art being transposed to clothing — it almost feels too obvious, telegraphed like a song in a Quentin Tarantino movie — but these prints just hit differently; like a cool, retro-inspired wallpaper you’d use to decorate your house, if wallpaper were still a thing. (FOR)

MG: I loved this collection and it strikes me as one of the better, more considered collaborations of the decade. I tried it on in brown/yellow and felt like a different person — like someone who buys art. And if you’re copping a piece from Dries Van Noten, maybe you kind of are? (FOR)

GC: Coolest skate brand of the last 10 years. By miles. Everything about this collab was great — from the David Sims-shot lookbook to the kickflipping Polo Bear on this sweater. (FOR)

MG: Why did this resonate so much better than the very comparable Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration? As Gregk Foley writes in his defense of the collaboration, it’s because of how different the two brands are: “Ralph Lauren is rooted in notions of the American gentry: new money, country clubs, the Ivy League, and so on — a far cry from a London skate brand started by a bunch of guys living in a Waterloo squat.”

Collaborations must offer something completely surprising to be valid, and Palace’s cheeky British sense of humor mixing with the Ivy League haughtiness of Ralph Lauren was a perfect combo. (FOR)

NT: Palace working with Ralph Lauren was a collab no one saw coming. The execution was even better. It was the first time Polo has ever done something like this, and as strong and iconic as Ralph is, they have really been able to hold their own and continue to reinvent themselves, keep a very loyal following, and drop strong product. (FOR)

GC: It seems crazy to think Riccardo Tisci was the hottest designer on the planet going into 2010. At the time, the Rottweiler print was seen as bad ass, worn by every celebrity around, kicking off luxury’s obsession with graphics. That has not been a good thing. (AGAINST)

MG: Full credit to Riccardo Tisci for pushing raw and frightening graphics to the forefront of a luxury fashion house like Givenchy for the 2010s. However, I think this stuff is best left behind in this decade. As a side note, the iconic image of Sky Ferreira in this oversized tee is seared into my brain forever. (AGAINST)

NT: Riccardo is one of the first menswear designers to make high-end pieces that really spoke to the relevance of what was happening in menswear at that time. This shirt pretty much acts as a shift in the way men’s fashion changed. (FOR)

GC: The stars aligned to make this the most perfect kit release of all time. Without the Nigeria shirt, you probably don’t have the “bruised banana” revival or anything like that. It helped sportswear brands reconnect with young football fans. Clubs are now thinking outside the box when it comes to launching new shirts, whether that’s through cool editorials, collaborations, or celebrity endorsements. I’m really intrigued to see where this all ends up. (FOR)

MG: As far as soccer kits go, I think it looks great. I don’t know why it’s a fashion item, but again, maybe it speaks to the meteoric rise and established legitimacy of sportswear. (FOR)

NT: When Nike first showcased the design for the last World Cup’s Nigeria shirts, the world lost it. It became the kit to have, no matter where you are from or what country you’re rooting for. The design stands out so much, it’s still a coveted jersey to have. (FOR)

GC: These are well past the point of saturation by now, but god, I doubt I’ll ever find another pair of track pants that fit so nicely. The only sportswear that’s acceptable to wear with loafers. (FOR)

MG: Sometimes it feels like millennials killed every industry except loungewear. The fact that track pants almost replaced jeans as the go-to pant option for 2010-2019 reflects a change in our attitudes towards work, leisure, and going to the gym. Namely, that you can now do all three one after the other without changing your outfit. This option from Needles was surely one of the best pairs of track pants out there. (FOR)

NT: Although track pants were popping off before Needles was on everyone’s radar, Needles was the first to be known for high-end tracks, so no matter what brand comes after, they will have to bow down to Needles. (FOR)

GC: The type of sunglasses a person would wear, with a hint of naughty irony, while on drugs at an afterparty 10 years ago, are now the coolest shades around. What a time to be alive! I love the design, but hate how street style set these quickly became. (AGAINST)

MG: This decade saw sunglasses being embraced for their ridiculousness (light-up LED frames from Balenciaga, minuscule Matrix shades, etc), which I think is a bad move for something you need to wear on your face. Pass. (AGAINST)

MG: I hate suede so I cannot claim to have been a fan of the visvim FBT, which I remember being an acronym for Fucc Boi Trainer, which I still think they are. (AGAINST)

NT: Before high-end designers knew how to make a sneaker that actually looked good, there was visvim. They separated the guys that cared about dressing from the guys that didn’t. (FOR)

MG: It’s a hard pass for me. Jeremy Scott — and by extension MOSCHINO — is recognized for its gaudiness, so if that’s your bag, by all means get the shoes with wings on them. (AGAINST)

NT: Before there was the Off-White™ Jordan 1, there was Jeremy Scott’s Adidas Wings 2.0. This was a very hype shoe that was one of the first times when a designer collaborating with a sportswear brand was still a fairly new concept. (FOR)

GC: For most people, Hood By Air was never about the clothing. It was about the subversiveness, the weirdness, the crazy runway shows. That rebellious spirit lives on in brands like Telfar. (FOR)

MG: Hood By Air was very of its time and injected some much needed freshness (including prescient gender neutral items) and abstraction into the fashion industry and should be applauded for refusing outside investment. This tee inspired a million copy-cat brands, which, along with HBA, should all be left in the 2010s. (AGAINST)

NT: Shayne Oliver can be credited as one of the godfathers behind the logomania rebirth. He also started a new movement in New York, helping streetwear find its way to the runways. The demand for HBA skyrocketed after A$AP Rocky became an early adopter. (FOR)

Ollech & Wajs Updates Its Watches With a New Unique Steel Bracelet

After just being relaunched recently, Swiss watchmaker Ollech & Wajs has updated its roster of timepieces with a newly-designed ‘beads of rice’ steel bracelet, elevating its tool watch aesthetic.

Inspired by some of the brand’s very own bracelet designs back in the ’60s — such as the Caribbean 1000 — the new band is constructed of a series of links each of which are individually machined from a solid block of 316L stainless steel. Each steel link is then carefully brushed, assembled, and screwed by hand with the utmost care and precision. According to O&W, this painstaking process prevents the bracelet from the usual stretching common among its pressed counterparts. With divers in mind, the steel bracelet is finished with a double lock deployant clasp for both ease of use and extra security.

The new Ollech & Wajs stainless steel bracelets are now available and come with most watches offered by the Swiss brand. Head over to its website for a look at their collection now.

In other watch-related news, Garmin has released a $10,000 USD «MARQ» watch set.

‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Official Trailer Shows the Monsters’ Arrival

After a wildly successful first chapter, John Krasinki‘s «silent horror» film returns with A Quiet Place Part II, this time with a full theatrical trailer.

According to the trailer, the film will piece together both a backstory and a continuation of the events in A Quiet Place, where the survivors Evelyn (played by Emily Blunt), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Regan (Millicent Simmonds) continue on their journey through a ravished America in silence to avoid the aural-sensitive monsters. The preview reveals their task of finding other survivors along their path, running into scavengers played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou. The trio realize the newcomers’ positive intentions, but are reminded of post-apocalyptical basics: besides the impending doom, it’s humans who you’ll have to fight off as well.

Prequel-wise, the 2:31 trailer reveals the movie will contain information on the monster’s arrival, as they wreck havoc and chaos in their small hometown. While Part I didn’t explain much of their origins, it seems Part II will answer a lot of burning questions from fans who were curious of the monsters’ beginnings.

John Krasinki returns as director for this sequel. A Quiet Place Part II hits theaters March 20, 2020. In the meantime, be sure to read our list of the best movies and TV shows to watch in January.

The Beginners Guide to Online Investing

At one time, my idea of investing involved purchasing as many Beanie Baby collectibles as I could find and then let them appreciate in value. Terrible idea on so many levels.

Now I understand that the best way to invest for the future is through old-fashioned securities, like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

And these days, the best method of online investing is easy AND cheap.

I’m used to paying for performance but that’s not true with investing. The best services often have the lowest fees. We’re in the golden age of online investing.

Learn everything you need to know with our beginners guide to online investing.

What Kinds of Returns to Shoot For

As with any kind of investing, risk exists in online investing. You have no guarantee the investment will appreciate in value.

There’s a saying in the investing rule: “average returns are hardly average.” Take stocks for example which have an average of 8% per year. What this means is while you’ll average 8% in returns over time, you’ll hardly see a year with an 8% return. One year will be 23%, then 2%, then 14%, then -10%, and so on. It bounces around a lot.

The returns you expect will depend on the type of investment that you’re considering

Determine Your Willingness for Risk

No one can predict what the markets will do in the future. Instead of trying to hit a precise return over time, I like to bucket my investments into three groups.

  1. Low risk investments
  • Average annual return: 1% to 2%
  • Poor return: 0%
  • Strong return: 3%
  • Risk of initial principal: Little to none
  • Investment examples: Municipal bonds, savings bonds, CDs, money market funds, bank savings accounts
  1. Average risk investments
  • Average annual return: 3% to 8%
  • Poor return: 0% or worse
  • Strong return: 12% or better
  • Risk of initial principal: Partial
  • Investment examples: Stocks, index funds, ETFs, corporate bonds
  1. High risk investments
  • Average annual return: minus-5% to 10%
  • Poor return: minus-15% or worse
  • Strong return: 20% or better
  • Risk of initial principal: High
  • Investment examples: Real estate, commodities, penny stocks, high-yield bonds, venture capital, private equity, cryptocurrency

Those who have a longer time horizon for investing and can afford a loss of principal can stomach the ups and downs of average risk investment. That’s why younger folks should be putting the bulk of their portfolio into stocks.

Those who need to protect the principal and who have a short time horizon will appreciate the peace of mind with a low risk investment. As you age, you’ll weight more of your portfolio into bonds and CDs.

Options For Investing Online

When you’re just starting with investing online, you have quite a few options. Some have been around for a few decades, while others have become available in the past few years.

Online Brokerages

An online brokerage works like the traditional in-person broker, except you pay far fewer fees.

Online brokerages will allow you to purchase all of the traditional types of investments, including individual stocks, target date funds, mutual funds, index funds, ETFs, money market funds, bonds, and others.

Through their web sites and apps, online brokerages will give you plenty of research data. This helps you learn more about investing in general or about individual investments you want to make.

Online brokerages will have different levels of personalized help available to you. Some are full service brokerages, where a live person helps at every step. Others only provide a live person for help when you request it.

Mutual Funds

If you only want to invest in mutual funds, you can do so online through a mutual fund family online account. Mutual funds are considered “active investing” where a fund manager picks and chooses investments in an attempt to beat a benchmark. They usually charge higher fees for that service.

But in proactive, performance from mutual funds lags the overall market. In other words, you pay more for less.

Instead of using a mutual fund, put your money into a basic index fund or a target date fund. Both are super simple, have really low fees, and will make you more money over time.

Robo-Advisors

Robo-advisors have gotten popular over the last few years and works nicely for beginners.

When you open an account with a robo-advisor, you’ll just answer a few questions to determine your risk tolerance and time horizon for investing. The robo-advisor then will invest your money for you, based on your answers. Annual fees are extremely low.

It’s perfect for the person who wants to invest effectively without having to think about it.

Non-Traditional

Online investing can involve things like REITs (real estate investment trusts) or loan making (where you receive interest payments). Sites like Fundrise and LendingClub allow you to invest using peer-to-peer technology.

These are new ways to invest online, so the long term risks and benefits aren’t clear. But they may appeal to someone who dislikes traditional stock market investing or who wants an option for diversification.

Things to Invest Into

Here are the main choices for what to invest into:

  • Stocks: With individual stocks, you purchase a piece of ownership in a company, like Apple. It’s a tiny, tiny, tiny piece, but, still, a piece.
  • Mutual funds: Mutual funds are a collection of several to hundreds of related individual investments. Mutual funds exist for stocks or bonds, as well as for related company categories, like restaurants or entertainment companies. These are actively managed in an attempt to beat the market.
  • Index funds: These are passively managed funds, meaning they have lower fees than a traditional mutual fund and less volatility (both less upside and downside). They don’t try to beat their market, they merely match it.
  • Target date funds: Think of these as a basket of index funds based on your age. You’ll pick a target date fund based on when you expect to retire (hence the name “target date”) and that fund will shift it’s allocation between safe and riskier investments as you get closer to the final date. The fees are slightly higher than index funds but you never have to worry about allocation, rebalancing your portfolio, or anything. For simplicity, these are your best option.
  • ETFs: Exchange traded funds work like mutual or index funds but they trade easily like stocks. You can buy and trade them during the day.
  • Bonds: A bond is a debt security for a business or municipality. Bonds have a face value for trading, but they also pay interest.
  • Treasuries: A treasury is a type of bond backed by the federal government, like treasury bills or savings bonds.
  • Savings accounts: Savings accounts pay a minimal amount of interest, but you risk no principal. Certificates of deposit (CDs) or money market accounts work in a similar manner.

Opening an Investment Account

Here are five of the most popular sites for opening an online investment account for the average beginning investor. All have mobile apps.

TD Ameritrade

TD Ameritrade is an online brokerage, so it has quite a few features and services. You can use as many or as few of them as you want.

  • Offers stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, and more
  • Retirement and education savings account options
  • Full service help if desired
  • May confuse some new investors

Wealthfront

This robo-advisor has low fees. New investors only need a few hundred dollars to start using Wealthfront.

  • Chooses from multiple investments for you
  • Hands-off investing
  • Retirement and education savings account options
  • Limited full service help options

Betterment

Betterment is another robo-advisor with low fees that’s perfect for new investors. But it does have some hands-on advice options too.

  • Chooses from multiple investments for you
  • Hands-off investing or full service help available
  • Retirement and education savings account options
  • Fees are a little higher than some other robo-advisors

Acorns

Acorns is perhaps the most hands-free robo-advisor around. It allows you to round up purchases linked to credit or debit cards to fund your account.

  • Chooses from multiple investments for you
  • Hands-off investing
  • Allows for automatic deposits less than $1 at a time
  • No retirement savings account options

Vanguard

Vanguard offers dozens of mutual fund options through your online investing account, simplifying portfolio diversification.

  • Full suite of index funds with some of the lowest fees available
  • Retirement and education savings account options
  • Self service or full service help if desired
  • Requires large initial deposits (typically $3,000 per fund)

Developing Your Plan and Strategy

In developing a strategy to use for online investing, note that multiple plans can work for you. It just depends on your goals, your risk tolerance, the amount you have to invest, and your time span for investing. Here are a few tips to help you create a strategy.

Do: Invest in What You Understand

If options trading is confusing to you, you almost certainly will not make smart choices when investing while using it. Stick with what makes sense to you. If you want to invest in a particular vehicle but don’t understand how it works, do research before investing.

If this investment stuff sounds like a horrible chore, get a target date fund at an online brokerage, put all that money into that fund, and never worry about it ever again. It’s as safe as it gets, you’ll have solid returns over the long-run, and the fees are very reasonable. And you never have to make a single decision ever again once you set up your account. The simplicity, performance, and fees can’t be beat.

Do: Pay Yourself Regularly

When paying your bills, always pay yourself too. Place some money in your online investing account. Even if you start with $50 per month, it will add up over time. Try to keep your personal spending as your income increases, then put the extra growth into your investments.

Do: Diversify Your Investments

Don’t place all of your online investing money in one thing, like a favorite company’s stock. Purchase a variety of investments. If one type of investment has a dip, another type may increase, balancing your gains and losses. (Mutual funds and index funds are an easy way to diversify.)

The one exception to this is a target date fund, it’ll do all the diversification for you.

Don’t: Panic

When online investing with a long term time horizon in mind, don’t panic if the stock market has a few days or months of poor returns. Through decades of data, the general direction of the stock market is up. If you’re diversified properly, you can wait out any downturns rather than panicking and selling off your investments.

Don’t: Invest What You Cannot Afford to Lose

When investing online, you could lose some or all of your principal. Don’t place money you’re going to need in a year or two for school or a wedding in a mid or high risk investment. Stick with low risk investments for money you’ll need soon within the next 5 years. Stocks are pretty safe as long as you don’t need that money within the next 10 years.

Don’t: Put Off Starting to Invest

Perhaps the best advice is to start investing as soon as you can in life. With the way compounding interest works, the sooner you start investing, the more success you’ll have.

  • Invest $100 per year at a 7% annual return when you’re 20, and you’ll have $22,859 when you’re 60.
  • Invest $200 per year at a 10% annual return when you’re 40, and you’ll have $13,946 when you’re 60.

Time crushes everything else when it comes to growing your money. There’s nothing more important than starting as early as possible. Even if you waited in the past, start now. Today is better than tomorrow.

Женя Лукашин

История о том, как рапан поймал золотую рыбку.

Вот как домохозяйки любят истории о том, как миллионер преследует продавщицу на вертолете, так все онегины-рапаны и мамы онегиных-рапанов мечтают о судьбе Жени Лукашина.

Жил он всю жизнь с мамой, был дрыщом и задротом, а потом его алкогольной волной вынесло к принцессе в кровать, словно Емелю — печка.

Он вломился в ее дом, принцесса сначала возмутилась, но потом пригляделась и, конечно же, влюбилась.

Барбара Брыльска настолько хороша собой, что это приз для любого мужчины, даже самого успешного.

В фильме «Ирония судьбы или с легким паром» хорошие актеры и очень хорошая музыка.

Но несмотря на то, что Женю Лукашина играет хороший актер и он поет отличные песни, образ получился удивительно мерзким.

Пьяный Женя ведет себя ужасно, а трезвый Женя — еще хуже.

Пьяный он просто жалко бормочет, ползая по чужой квартире без штанов, а протрезвев, начинает хамить, но тупить не перестает.

Вот диалоги протрезвевшего Жени с Надей.

К этому моменту он уже наговорил ее жениху какой-то чуши, жених бросил Надю от ревности, а Женя вытянул из нее денег на самолет, а потом уговорил дать ему позвонить в Москву по междугородней линии невесте. Надя уступила ему, словно стесняясь своей к нему брезгливости.

Галя не захотела выслушивать длинную историю Оправдашки про традицию посещения бани. Женя много раз за фильм начинает рассказывать эту историю с самого начала и очень веселит этим зрителей, поскольку его эгоцентризм больше, чем даже у них.

Галя бросила трубку и Женя в печали.

— Ну вот, кажется, все. У меня нет невесты.

Это он жалуется Наде, которая по его вине потеряла жениха. В ссоре Нади с женихом виноват Женя, а в ссоре Жени с невестой — его собственное пьянство.

— Ничего, найдете другую, — отвечает Надя.
— Другую? Что вы в этом понимаете?! Я всю жизнь искал. Никогда не был женат. И вот, кажется, нашел…
— Почему вы на меня кричите? — удивляется Надя.
— Хватит! Не давайте идиотских советов, — резко отвечает Женя, сжав в кулачке деньги Нади.
— Не забывайте, что вы у меня в квартире.
— Провались пропадом ваша квартира! Вместе с вами и вашим Отелло.
— Хам! Просто хам.
— Я хам, а вы…
— Ну что я?! Пошел вон!
— А вот никуда я не пойду! Идти мне некуда. Самолет мой в 7 утра.
— Тогда уйду я.
— Скатертью дорога. А я есть хочу.
— Этот номер не пройдет!
— Я есть хочу!

Ну и здесь этот герой, которого почему-то принято считать интеллигентным, добрым и трогательным, начинает пожирать еду Нади, набивая свои щечки.

Надя пытается выгнать его силой, но здесь приходят ее коллеги с работы и она вынуждена притвориться, что это ее друг, чтобы две эти сплетницы не обсуждали на работе ее странную личную жизнь.

Женя уминает за обе щеки еду Нади, но когда подруги просят ее спеть, требует не делать этого, потому что он не любит самодеятельности.

Корона Сокровища на голове Жени упирается в потолок, у него могли бы поучиться самые отчаянные Штурманы и Училки из писем в рубрику.

Потом к короне Сокровища добавляется корона Спасателя. Затем еще Победителя.

Но сначала он исключительно Сокровище, он упорно не хочет сочувствовать Наде, которой причинил столько бед, и требует, чтобы она сочувствовала ему.

— Почему я все время должен вас утешать? Почему меня-то никто не утешает? Мне в тысячу раз хуже, вы хоть у себя дома.

Беженцы всегда так считают. Им хуже, потому что они в чужом доме жрут чужую еду. Поэтому не они должен извиняться, а хозяева. И если беженцам хотя бы было от чего бежать, спасая жизнь, а Женя просто напился как свинья, он все равно требует сочувствия и заботы.

— Но ведь вы виноваты, не я! — резонно отвечает Надя.
— Но я же ненарочно. Я же тоже жертва обстоятельств. Можно я поем?
— Ешьте, вон сколько всего. Не выбрасывать же.
— С прошлого года ничего не ел. Вкусно! Это вы сами готовили?
— Конечно, сама. Хотелось похвастаться.
— И это вам удалось. В том смысле, что я обожаю вкусно поесть.

Надя хотела похвастаться перед Ипполитом, но Женя утешил ее, что ей удалось ему угодить.

Потом возвращается Ипполит, Женя, как всегда бывает в мечтах задротов, легко побеждает в драке нормального мужика в два раза его крупней и солидней.

А дальше он дополняет корону Сокровища короной Спасателя. Его Училка и Штурман идут в наступление.

— Я вас хочу попросить… У меня к вам просьба, может быть, немножко дерзкая.
— Но какая?
— Вы не рассердитесь?
— Постараюсь.
— И не прогоните меня?
— Ну, если я до сих пор этого не сделала… Вы хотите, чтобы я еще спела?
— Нет. Позвольте, я выну из шкафа фотографию Ипполита и порву ее?
— Нет, нельзя.
— Вы очень огорчены, что он ушел?
— Зачем вам это знать?
— Надо, раз спрашиваю.
— Да, огорчена.
— Вы в этом уверены? Сколько вам лет? 32?
— Тридцать три?
— Тридцать четыре. Тридцать четыре? А семьи все, ну, не получилось. Не повезло, это бывает. И вдруг появляется он. Вот такой… Серьезный, положительный. Красивый. С ним удобно. Надежно. За ним, как за каменной стеной. Да и жених, наверно, выгодный, и подруги советуют…»Смотри, не упусти».
— А вы, оказывается, жестокий.
— Простите. Я хирург, мне часто приходится делать людям больно, чтобы потом им жилось хорошо.

Просто он хирург. Он умеет спасать людей. И от неудач в личной жизни тоже. Хотя сам до сих пор не женат в 36, живет с мамой, а Галя, с которой он «встречается» два года, до сих пор ему ни разу не дала.

Ну и дальше он лечит и учит жизни Надю, а когда она начинает его выгонять за хамство, надевает корону Победителя.

Зациклившись, как все рапаны, на идее порвать фотографию Ипполита, Женя то и дело порывается воплотить свою задумку.

— Я так не могу, у меня такое ощущение, что нас трое.
— Не смей его трогать.
— Я ему ничего не сделаю, только засуну между книгами. Ладно, пусть подслушивает, но давай повернем его спиной. Лучше, когда его не видно.
— Оставь его в покое! — Надя пытается отобрать фотографию жениха у разбушевавшегося мачо.
— Ты за него так заступаешься, будто он тебе дорог, как память.
— Тебя не касается.
— «Любимой Наденьке»? Ну знаете! Это уже переходит всякие границы!
— Что ты делаешь?
— Пусть подышит воздухом! Это ему полезно.

Ну и он выбрасывает фотографию в окно, а чуть позже, когда Надя принесет ее назад, порвет на кусочки, совершив символический акт расправы с соперником. Так обычно юные девушки расправляются с обидчиками.

— Пойди и подними Ипполита, — требует Надя.
— И не подумаю.
— Я тебе повторяю.
— Не надо мне повторять!
— Лети-ка ты первым рейсом.
— И полечу!
— И полетишь!
— И полечу! Полечу! Вот только сейчас побреюсь. Бритвой! И полечу. Самолетом… — Женя в чужой квартире хватает чужую бритву.
— Это тебе не парикмахерская.
— Не мешай мне бриться. Я зарос. Я не могу лететь к невесте небритым.
— Я совсем забыла, что у тебя была невеста.

Как всегда опять в дверь звонит Ипполит, который шарахается туда-сюда и ни разу не смог набить этому хулигану морду.

В мечтах рапанов все мачо подыгрывают им всегда.

— Беги открывай. Это наверняка Ипполит, что-то его давно не было, — это Женя командует Наде.

— Он уже бреется моей бритвой! — это вошедший Ипполит возмущен.

И опять уходит, чтобы вернуться чуть позже, как клоун.

— Теперь, я надеюсь, он навсегда ушел? Слава Богу! — это распоясовшийся Женя. — Кстати, почему здесь находится его бритва?
— Ты летишь к своей невесте, ну и лети! А эта бритва моего жениха.
— Бывшего жениха. Нет Ипполита, был и сплыл. Где он? Ипполит! Нету! А если он еще раз сюда явится, я спущу его с лестницы. Вверх тормашками.
— По какому праву ты со мной так разговариваешь? Почему ты вмешиваешься в мою жизнь? Тебе давно уже пора на аэродром.
— Нет, мой поезд уходит поздно вечером.

И здесь Женя совсем слетает с катушек и начинает вести себя как террорист.

— Так!.. Ну что ж, хватит! Есть не хочу, пить тоже не хочу. Отдохнуть хочу. Устал я сегодня. «Утро туманное»… — заваливается в кровать Нади и поет на весь дом.
— Тогда уйду я! — говорит Надя.
— Скатертью дорога. «Утро туманное»…
— «Скатертью дорога»? Я приду, но с милиционером.
— Приводи все отделение!

Корона Победителя выросла так высоко, что Жене море по колено, он уже давно не пьян, но отважней самого пьяного рапана.

И в итоге все его баги и короны вознаграждаются сполна. Не то что в жизни.

Красавица Надя влюбляется в него по уши, вешается ему на шею и мечтает понравиться его маме.

Так любой онегин-рапан может жить в своем зеленом винограднике в полной уверенности, что если когда-нибудь однажды он по-настоящему кого-то захочет, он раздухарится, обнаглеет, выйдет из границ и нахрапом возьмет любую крепость.

И эта крепость сама за ним потом побежит.

Как Надя поехала за Женей в Москву, а могла бы и босиком побежать, дав сто очков вперед декабристкам.

Разбирайте диалоги, друзья. Как мы рапанов в эволюциолаб разбираем.

С тем лишь отличием, что в реальных письмах рапанам всегда закономерно не везет, а в сказках-для-рапанов они везунчики и баловни судьбы.

2019 год на Хабре в цифрах: постов больше, минусуют так же, комментируют активнее


Команда Хабра почти в полном составе

Мы можем только догадываться, как всё выглядело снаружи, но изнутри Хабра 2019-й показался чертовски насыщенным. Мы по чуть-чуть меняли подход то тут, то там, и все вместе эти мелочи сделали проект более открытым и дружелюбным. Мы «раскрутили гайки» — теперь на Хабр можно репостить из личных блогов, а за посты голосовать дольше; новых авторов встречает специальная страница, заряженная на успех; мы постоянно улучшаем мобильную версию и потихоньку готовимся к релизу PWA. В начале года мы запустили англоязычную версию, и 12 месяцев спустя на нее заходят уже 400 тысяч человек ежемесячно. А в конце года мы сделали ребрендинг и теперь наши проекты-сателлиты по-настоящему стали частью Хабра и доступны по говорящим адресам career.habr.com, freelance.habr.com и qna.habr.com. Заодно в декабре немного видоизменили и навигацию, подчеркнув, что тут есть не только потоки о разработке и администрировании, но и сравнимый по масштабу раздел с научно-популярными статьями, а еще потоки о дизайне, менеджменте и маркетинге. Но что бы мы там ни меняли, главное осталось на месте — во главе угла стоит контент, которые создают участники сообщества. Об этом сейчас расскажем подробнее. Читать дальше →

Шутка про Путина на ТНТ

Правда сразу после шутки конкурс остановили, вышел Павел Воля и объявил, что победителя в музыкальном конкурсе не будет и что мол победили все.


Скрин с экрана, Камеди клаб

В финале новогоднего конкурса осталось два финалиста, Роман Попов и Андрей Бебуришвили. Задание было простым нужно было произвольно продолжить слова на песню (Леприконсов, Хали-Гали)

— Когда мне было 10 лет …

Роман Попов продолжил: -…был у меня всё тот же президент.

В зале раздался хохот и сценка оборвалась, после чего вышел Павел Воля и сообщил, что победили все.


Скрин с экрана, Камеди клаб

По всей видимости смелую шутку решили оставить, а вот финальную часть пришлось переснять или это такая импровизационная концовка.

Сейчас попытался найти этот момент в записи и не нашел его, возможно плохо искал.

How to make your New Year’s tech resolutions stick (for real)

How to make your New Year's tech resolutions stick (for real)

As your friend who shops for expensive calendars at Paper Source knows, New Year’s resolutions are mostly a scam by Big Planner. Still, if you’re going to make one, may we humbly suggest you turn your attention to your relationship with technology.

Technology can make our lives easier and more fun. However, it has also damaged our relationships, our country, our planet, and our sense of self

At this point, we all know that resolutions aren’t necessarily the best way to make changes in our lives. So how do we alter our relationship with technology? We asked BJ Fogg, who founded the Behavior Design Lab at Stanford University, for his advice.  Read more…

[Из песочницы] Как использовать несколько языков программирования и не сойти с ума

Привет, Хабр! Представляю вашему вниманию перевод статьи «How to use multiple programming languages without losing your mind» автора Bart Copeland.

Сопливое нытьё про FSF и Red Hat

Кароч, тема такая: я им написал, а они не ответили. Ну ладно бы Массивсофт, который вообще никому ничего не обязан, а то — Шляпа! Так что без их позволения публикую без разрешения. Запретят — удалю. (Постил на одном форуме, но кеша гугла почему-то не сохранил мой пост, так что сделаю вид, что он как будто свежий, года полтора ему всего.)

Перевод авторской рекламной статьи о каком-то Серебряном Пуле.

Преамбула

Это перевод статьи. В статье объясняется, почему полиглотство — очень опасный вещь.

Текст статьи

Многоязычная среда — это обоюдоострый меч, дающий преимущества вместе со сложностями, которые могут угрожать организации.

В России задумали забирать органы умерших без спроса

В России может появиться презумпция согласия на донорство органов после смерти человека. Такой законопроект, разработанный Минздравом совместно с профессиональным сообществом, уже готов к обсуждению в Госдуме.

Речь идёт о том, что любой человек может стать донором после своей смерти, если при жизни он не выразил письменного или, при определённых условиях, устного отказа от этой процедуры. Таким образом, разрешение на то, чтобы забирать органы умершего, будет выдаваться фактически без спроса.

Отказ также могут дать родственники в течение трёх часов после констатации смерти мозга, пояснил один из авторов инициативы, председатель комитета Госдумы по охране здоровья Дмитрий Морозов.

При этом медики, согласно этому закону, обязаны будут сообщать родственникам пациента о намерении изъять у него органы. Однако если родственников нет или связаться с ними невозможно, вопрос о донорстве будет решаться с помощью медицинских консилиумов.

Депутат отметил, что законодатели долго работали над этим проектом, однако текст документа ещё предстоит детально обсудить.

Один из ведущих трансплантологов страны, Михаил Каабак, отметил, что в нынешнем виде законопроект о донорстве органов «выглядит невнятно». Он признался, что больше всего его расстраивает нечёткое описание трансплантационных регистров, которые содержат только отказы и не содержат согласие. Сейчас люди часто заявляют о несогласии на донорство из-за того, что опасаются, что их убьют в больнице ради органов.

СТИЛИЗАЦИЯ В АЙДЕНТИКЕ

Всем привет! Решил в первый день нового года запилить небольшой вебинар. С одной стороны — накопились вопросы учеников, на которые не было времени ответить в предновогодней беготне, с другой — надо как то убить время в эти затяжные каникулы. Этот вебинар посвящен тому, как одну и ту же придуманную нами идею логотипа, можно представить в разных стилистиках. В данном, конкретном случае, речь идёт о том, как сделать логотип в стиле хенд мейд, не тратя на это кучу времени, бумаги и интеллектуальных усилий, то, что называется “дёшево и сердито”.

Этот коротенький вебинар — доп. материал к моей двухмесячной онлайн школе “Айдентика”. Школа “Айдентика”это, наверное, лучший в Рунете образовательный кейс, позволяющий обучиться профессии дизайнер фирменного стиля за 2 месяца не выходя из дома.
Программа курса охватывает основные аспекты работы графического дизайнера, мечтающего заниматься визуальным брендингом профессионально и зарабатывать этим деньги.
Кстати, посмотреть работы учеников, прошедших курс и почитать их отзывы можно тут: http://videokurs_ajdentik.tilda.ws

Рекомендую сходить на страничку школы ещё и потому, что, с сегодняшнего дня и по 10 января включительно, для читателей и подписчиков Дизайн Кабака действует скидка 25%. Всех с наступившим Новым годом и и не забывайте ставить ?


СТИЛИЗАЦИЯ В АЙДЕНТИКЕ was originally published in Дизайн-кабак on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
