Jeans vs. Corona: Sorgt die Pandemie für den Untergang des Denim-Klassikers?

Der Jeanskauf ist für mich immer mit einer gewissen Panik verbunden – ein Überbleibsel einer Zeit, in der ich in die meisten nicht reinpasste. Der Besuch in der Jeans-Abteilung war für mich als Teenager jedes Mal eine Mutprobe und endete zwangsläufig in Scham und Schande. (Verzeih mir mein mangelndes Selbstbewusstsein: Ich war ein Teenie mit einem Plus-Size-Körper in der Ära der Low-Waist-Jeans – lange bevor der Begriff Body Positivity aufkam). Ganz egal, wie dein Körper aussieht und wie du d...

Mickey Avalon is a 44 year old rapper from Hollywood, California blowing up on Halloween 2006 with the release of his self-titled debut & then the loose single “What Do You Say?” appearing in The Hangover just 3 years later. This resulted in a deal with Suburban Noize Records, who helped Mickey release his 2012 magnum opus Loaded. Since then, he’s kept himself busy by self-releasing the equally fantastic Teardrops on My Tombstone & a handful of EPs. But with Subnoize’s reforming last year, Mick...

The best record stores in the US

Record store day is this Saturday, April 13, and if you’re reading this, that means that you are likely among the last bastion of badass music fans that actually care about the quality of the sound in your ears. While most cram trebled-out Spotify tunes through Bluetooth headphones, you are curled up on the futon next to a turntable and a pair of speakers drowning in a full spectrum of highs and lows that may have not even been recorded on a digital mixing board. For you, intrepid listener, t...

For comic book kids, Stan Lee was The Man long before Marvel movies began

You didn’t need to have been there when it happened to appreciate just how marvelously Stan Lee transformed the superhero comic book. But if you weren’t a kid in the 1960s, I feel sorry for you. I was, and I can tell you that the sense of discovery, wonder and oddball empathy that came with each month of new Marvel Comics opened and shaped young imaginations like nothing else. By injecting a sense of reality into the mythic, he made us storytelling junkies for the rest of our lives, and the firs...
