Kids These Days

BY debbie in General

I've been curious about this truly old-school subculture trend, ever since I caught eye of some of it while in London last fall, and spotted a few people in my Brooklyn nabe wearing oversized Newsy caps, spats, and assorted other style paraphernalia from the 1920s and '30s. And now, I've found the proof that there really is a seemingly unlikely revival happening these days—of the Jazz Age! Back when I was a yoot, we kids made the trek out to  ... Read More

Reasons To Be Pretty

I mean, I adore Bjork's video for “All Is Full Of Love” (and if you haven't seen it...), and I just finished reading 24Seven, an Eisner-award nominated comic anthology all about robots in NYC. But that's all theoretical, right? I mean, robots aren't actually capable of emotion, affection, love, right? Sega Toys claims otherwise. They're marketing the world's first ... Read More
