Your next Swedish Pop Crush Zara Larsson on Third Wave Feminism

Before jumping onto the phone with Swedish pop sensation Zara Larsson I felt an old but instantly recognizable pang: I was about to speak to a teenage girl. But rather than adolescent angst, this was the usual nerves of a new interview. The feeling, however, was apt—many of 18-year-old Larsson’s songs are melodic reminders of all that is frightening about teenage […]

An Exploration of Iconic Brand, Guess, with Founder Paul Marciano and a Handful of His Insta-Muses

A skip through the hallways of Guess headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles is a bit like an astral tour high above DTLA at the famous, mysterious, Griffith Park Observatory. At the Observatory, you’ll interactively witness how seemingly designed ripples through our universe precipitate star showers, stellar explosions, and alluring phenomena—an experience not unlike my morning spent with co-founder and Chief Creative […]

Maybe we just have a soft spot for the finer things; or maybe, like Cyndi Lauper intoned in her classic verse, we really […]

50% Hustle: A Side-Mirror Glimpse Into the L.A. Street Racing Scene

I was picked up a little after 10PM, to roll north along sulfur-lit freeways to an undisclosed location. After weeks of false starts and dead ends, I finally had traction with the Los Angeles street racing scene. I was in the car of an intermediary who had offered me sage advice, invaluable intel, explicit threats, and a generous ride to […]

The universe is mind numbingly vast and within it lies an alluring phenomena, a pervasive subculture, and a mystifying movement that has transited through the 20th century. Paranormality, extraterrestrial excavations, cosmic catapults, and a belief manifested in mysteries of an extraterrestrial world. These are the imagining that are actualized and contemplated in […]

Shawn Mendes

“The second you start trying to write about things that other people want to hear, it’s not as honest as it should be”

Shawn Mendes would rather take a drive to the beach than go out to the club. However, he’s a Leo, and he’s not exactly shy. He’s a tender-voiced, albeit outspoken, peach-fuzzed cat of 18 who rocketed to fame after posting to the Vine social media platform short looping videos of himself singing. Three years, and almost half a billion plays […]
