Breaking Bad pop-up in Los Angeles

Ok, yeah, it’s cool there’s a Breaking Bad movie coming out next week and all. It’s no trip to Albuquerque, but it’ll be nice to get your Jesse Pinkman fix for the first time in six years. And though El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie will immerse us back into the sinister world we fell in love with in the late-2000s, it won’t put us smack in the middle of the show the way, say, a themed pop-up bar might. Oh, wait… here come the guys from Saved by the Max, who just in time for the Breaking Bad ...

These Activists Are Using Social Media To Empower Black Women — & You Should Be Following

Social media tends to get a bad rap — and for good reason. We can all agree that plenty of things in life are more enriching than the hours we spend hunched over scrollable feeds on our phones, saving astrology memes, skimming mega-captions, and ogling strangers' European vacations. That said, with a bit of curation, it is possible for our social media feeds to do more than just spark FOMO — they can be a source of inspiration and maybe even a force for good.In a world where it often feels like...

Instagram prototypes video co-watching

The next phase of social media is about hanging out together while apart. Rather than performing on a live stream or engaging with a video chat, Instagram may allow you to chill and watch videos together with a friend. Facebook already has Watch Party for group co-viewing and in November we broke the news that Facebook Messenger’s code contains an unreleased “Watch Videos Together” feature. Now Instagram’s code reveals a “co-watch content” feature hidden inside Instagram Direct Messaging. It’...

An Honest Review of Gay Dating Apps

Everyone has an opinion on the gay apps. They’ve become so ubiquitous and ingrained in our popular culture, they’re impossible to resist. I remember the first time I downloaded Grindr—shortly after it was released. Once The New York Times writers discovered it, the app world seemed to explode with location-based dating apps. Gay dating wasn’t easy for a long time. I was lucky enough to grow up & come out during the iPhone generation when thousands of new types of apps seemed to be released every...

Natalie Brennan is general manager of Muffin Break -- a multinational fast-food franchise business owned by Foodco -- and she's really angry that today's young people will not work for her for free. Ms Brennan says that a decade ago, she had a glut of desperate young people who would repeatedly call her and beg her to let her work for free (Brennan has been with Foodco for 18 years) while today's applicants are interested in getting paid, and want to know how long they'll have to work at su...

Best roadside lookouts in the US

Road trips are about a great many things. Cool playlists of the best song about every state. Excuses to eat more fast food in a week than you have since 2014. Gas station bathrooms. But they’re also about breaking up the monotony of the open road with a rest at a scenic lookout over something you’ve never seen before. It could be a mountain range, sprawling desert, or sweeping view of a modern city, but there’s something about scenic viewpoints that make us want to take a few minutes and appr...
