Former Apparel Execs Aim to Make Most Comfortable Men’s Denim

Ryan Mark and Danny Kurtzman are calling Alday, their new men’s denim line, the most comfortable jeans on the market.
Alday is the brainchild of Mark and Kurtzman, who were struggling to find stretch denim for men that wasn’t constricting.
The cofounders and designers, who met while working at 3Point Distribution, a California company that manages the design and production on a variety of brands including the men’s wear line Ezekiel, struggled to find stretch denim that felt good, so they decided to introduce their own brand on Kickstarter.
“We couldn’t find a pair of denim that was both comfortable and still looked great, so we decided to create the most comfortable denim ourselves,” Mark said. “Our goal is not to just build another clothing brand, but to create a product that people truly enjoy. We chose Kickstarter to build up a core audience that is passionate about the product and wants to be involved in its growth.”
Alday denim is made with open knit technology that features four-way stretch, deep pockets for cell phones and hardware that helps denim hold up to daily wear and tear. This results in a lightweight denim that works for a variety of body types.
The proposition has resonated on

Former NBA Player Tyler Honeycutt Found Dead After Shootout with Police: Reports

Former NBA and UCLA basketball player Tyler Honeycutt was found dead on the scene Friday in Southern California after a shootout with police, members of his family tell ABC-7. He was 27.

According to Los Angeles Police Department, officers “assigned to Van Nuys Division responded to a radio call of a Man with a Gun in the area of Riverside Drive & Tyrone Avenue” at around 5 p.m. ET.

After arriving at the scene, an officer-involved shooting occurred as “they made contact” and were “communicating” with “the suspect, a male in his 20’s.”

“The suspect fired a shot out of the residence and officers returned fire,” the LAPD said.

Neither the LAPD nor the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner Coroner would verify to PEOPLE that Honeycutt was the deceased suspect. The late athlete’s family, however, made the confirmation to ABC-7.

That network also reports that the shootout continued for several hours, during which the suspect barricaded himself in the residence.

The LAPD went on to announce that while no officers were injured, after the SWAT team entered the home, they found the man unresponsive and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Investigations from our Force Investigation Division are at scene conducting a thorough investigation and we will provide more details as they become available,” the LAPD added.

Honeycutt was drafted into the NBA in 2011 by the Sacramento Kings.

After two seasons he was traded in February to the Houston Rockets, before being released from the team the following month.

He went on to play overseas, most recently for the Russian team Khimki.

Former Special Education Teacher Allegedly Caught with Victim While Awaiting Sex Assault Trial

A former special education teacher in Connecticut who is awaiting trial for allegedly having sex with two students is in more trouble after authorities say that she was recently caught with one of her alleged victims in her car, PEOPLE confirms.

Laura Ramos, 32, was charged last year with two counts of second-degree sexual assault after police claim she admitted to having sex with one of her 18-year-old special education students.

She was later hit with an additional sexual assault charge after police said that she allegedly had sexual contact with another student.

As she awaited trial, Ramos was told not to have contact with her alleged victims and was freed on $ 50,000 bond.

Instead, according to police, Ramos has continued to have contact with one of her former students. Police say she was pulled over in late in June a beachside community in Connecticut where she was found to be driving with one of the alleged victims.

As a result, Ramos has been charged with violation of a protective order, according to court records viewed by PEOPLE.

The case against her began last year after the principal of Central High School in Bridgeport, where she taught, called police on June 9, 2017. According to the police report obtained by PEOPLE at the time, another teacher reported that a student had told him Ramos was allegedly having sex with one of her special education students.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

According to this teacher, the student claimed that Ramos had been texting him about “her guy,” who didn’t want to have sex anymore and whom this student believed to be the victim.

This student said the victim was often seen with Ramos — “making eyes at each other, like flirting” — according to the Connecticut Post.

Ramos initially denied the allegations when questioned by police on June 12 but, in a later interview, allegedly admitted to having sex with one of her students from December to April, usually in her car, according to the paper.

At the time, Ramos resigned from her job “in lieu of … termination proceedings,” according to local TV station WVIT.

Prosecutors are seeking to revoke Ramos’ bond and remand her to prison while she awaits trial. A hearing will be held on Friday.

Ramos’ attorney, Edward Gavin, did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on Thursday, but he told the Post, “Laura Ramos has faithfully attended every court appearance and will continue to do so. We will address the motion at the hearing.”

If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison.

Rowing Blazers to Open Shop in Former Odin Space

Rowing Blazers is going the retail route.
The preppy brand of vintage-inspired sport coats, button-down shirts and ties will open a 2,500-square-foot store at 221 Centre Street in Manhattan on June 15. The space formerly housed the Odin store.
Rowing Blazers was created last year by Jack Carlson, a former coxswain on the U.S. national rowing team who also holds a Ph.D. in archaeology from Oxford University (a center of rowing worldwide), and is the author of “A Humorous Guide to Heraldry” and “Rowing Blazers,” a coffee-table tome about the “authentic striped, piped, trimmed and badged” jackets worn by oarsman around the world.
Since its debut, the collection of boldly patterned and brightly colored jackets has caught the attention of Millennial customers, and the brand had a successful partnership with J. Crew on a limited-edition capsule of rugby shirts.
In addition, a pop-up that the brand operated on Rivington Street last fall was so successful Carlson believes it’s the right time to take a bigger plunge into the brick-and-mortar world.

Former GQ Staffer, Tech Start-up Founder and Creative Director to Unveil Seam

Justin Hruska, a sneaker collector with a background in tech, wasn’t satisfied with his online shopping experience. Oftentimes he would visit larger e-commerce sites and feel shortchanged because he knew he wasn’t seeing everything a brand had to offer, which meant he had to visit other sites to find what he was looking for.
“A lot of brands use wholesale for awareness and put their best-selling products on their own site,” said Hruska. “So the consumer has to jump through all these hoops before they can purchase a $ 300 sweatshirt. With Seam, we want to reimagine what that looks like.”
Seam is a men’s and women’s shopping app set to launch this summer that was cofounded by Hruska, the chief executive officer, and Jake Woolf, the editorial director. Nate Brown, who cofounded Studio Institute, a creative firm that’s worked with artists including Beyoncé and Jay Z on tour visuals, is a partner and a strategic adviser who worked helped design the app.

Former Freemans Sporting Club Barber Steps Out on His Own

Ruben Aronov spent 10 years at Freemans Sporting Club Barbershop, the Americana-themed shop that operated alongside a men’s wear store and a restaurant. In its heyday, F.S.C. Barber was the personification of a certain dandy meets hipster New York aesthetic, but in 2013 its owners split, Aronov stayed with Freemans and become a partner but decided to start his own thing last November.
His own thing is Matter of Instinct, or Moi, which means “me” in French and “mine” in Russian. Aronov, who is Russian and moved to the U.S. as a child, helped manage and start F.S.C. Barber, and wanted to create an environment that’s less performative and more welcoming.
“I don’t want anyone to feel unwelcome here,” Aronov said. “I don’t want to live off of hype. I want this to be a lifestyle where clients can hang and get to know each other and the more time you spend here the more it feels like your home, hence the name Moi.”

Mack is well known for her work on Smallville, on which she played Chloe Sullivan for 10 seasons. Mack’s indictment stems from her involvement with the group known as NXIVM.

Mack is accused of luring young women into the secretive group under the guise of helping them with self-empowerment. In reality, prosecutors allege, Mack was part of a scheme meant to traffick these young women into a sex ring for Keith Raniere, the founder of NXIVM, and others.

Former Calvin Klein Designer Launches T-Shirt Line

Abby Moriarty never thought she would leave Calvin Klein, but six months after Raf Simons’ arrival, restructuring happened and she lost her job as vice president of design.
“I found myself at a loss,” said Moriarty. “It came as a big shock to me, but I started thinking about what I could do with all that I learned there.”
Moriarty, who helped lead design for the Calvin Klein White Label assortment that’s sold in department stores, decided to stick with American sportswear, but has taken a different approach. Called 1920, her men’s and women’s T-shirt line is grounded in modernist design — 1920 is the year the T-shirt was entered in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.
“When I was at Calvin, I would travel four times a year to places like Hong Kong, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and we were always thinking about how can we get more for less and not thinking about the impact it’s having on our environment and our culture,” said Moriarty. “It really prompted me to take a step back and I saw how much fast fashion has influenced the market.

The designer on Thursday sent out an e-mail announcing that her company is in takeover proceedings in a commercial court.
“I am no longer the designer nor the director of the company despite it still carrying my name and will continue to exist,” she said, adding that she was pursuing new adventures.
In a separate e-mail, Delafon told WWD that she had been planning to put things on hold and pursue a freelance career after her partner left and negotiations with a potential investor failed to bear fruit. The company had hit financial troubles and was being liquidated when a former intern bought it through the Paris Commercial Court without telling her, she said, without disclosing the former intern’s name.
“[It’s a] really a crazy story. And now she has my name,” exclaimed the designer whose fate echoes that of designers including Chantal Thomass and Jil Sander.
Known for her mixed-media bucket-bag pouches on twisted chains, the Parisian bag designer’s business started organically seven years ago when she began making bags for herself and started receiving orders from friends. She added a clothing capsule in 2016.

For the past couple of years, Joey Adler, the former chief executive officer of Diesel Canada, has been immersed in Millennial life while working on Dept. of Good, a for-profit retail ecosystem that will launch later this year. She’s used those findings to introduce Shades of Black with Trey Alligood, who serves as creative director and previously worked at Gents.
“Working with Millennials has inspired me to understand how we, the Baby Boomers, have lost completely the notion of less is more. For Millennials, life is about living. Not about amassing,” said Adler. “Living life and shades of black in its simplicity is actually full of fashion complexities. The pieces are so versatile and can be adapted to a variety of settings.”
Shades of black is a gender-neutral line that’s built around tones of black, white and gray. The line, which retails from $ 48 to $ 595, includes denim, jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies, bomber jackets, shorts and T-shirts that are made from Japanese silks, Italian leather and suede, French terry and bamboo cotton. According to Adler, the pieces can be worn as basic separates or layered together to create more fashion-forward looks.
The collection, which will be available in December, will be released every few months.

Former Miss Universe Says She Was Victim of Sexual Harassment

Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan and many more celebrities have come forward in the recent weeks to share harrowing experiences of being sexually harassed in Hollywood.

After dozens of women accused powerhouse film executive Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment from as far back as three decades ago, more women who’ve been harassed by other men in power have come forward. The trending hashtag #MeToo, created by actress Alyssa Milano to reveal “the magnitude of the problem,”  generated more than 500,000 tweets in just one day.

Now, Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera confessed in an interview with language program ¡Suelta la sopa! (Telemundo) that she too has been the victim of sexual harassment. “That’s why I left a specific country that I’m not going to name,” the Puerto-Rican beauty queen said when asked about the plethora of Hollywood heavyweights coming forward about sexual abuses they’ve suffered at the hands of men. “I left because I believe in me, in my talent, as far as I have come and what I have coming.”

Although she didn’t reveals specific details about what she endured, Rivera—who starred in “Despacito’s” viral music video—did make it clear that it’s very important for women to take a stand. “ lack of respect for women,” she said. “You have to value yourself and stand your ground.”

At the age of 18, the statuesque model won the coveted title of Miss Universe 2006, and went on to study acting in New York City, eventually nabbing roles in popular Mexican soap operas. She now hosts Spanish-language daytime talk shows Un Nuevo Dia (Telemundo) and Despierta America (Univision).

Former Pennsylvania Officer Pleads Guilty to Death of Pregnant Wife After Claiming He Shot Her by Accident

A former Pennsylvania State Police Trooper has pled guilty to the deaths of his wife and unborn child in 2014, which he claimed was accidental.

Joseph Paul Miller pled guilty on Thursday to two counts of involuntary manslaughter for causing the deaths of his wife, JoAnna Miller, and the baby girl she was pregnant with at the time, while he was cleaning his gun, according to the Associated Press.

Miller’s wife was taken to the hospital in critical condition while she was given an emergency cesarean section, according to the Montgomery Colonial. She was given an emergency cesarean, but the 24-week-old baby and the mother died after surgery.

Miller, 36, faces a maximum of 5 to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in the coming months, according to CBS Philadelphia.

Miller told investigators he had been taking apart a gun he owned in the family room to clean it when it discharged, according to the AP.

He initially said the gun was about 10 feet away from his wife when it accidentally went off, but he later revised that distance to about 2 feet away. Prosecutors, however, said ballistics and forensics tests showed the gun was only 3 to 6 inches from his wife’s head when it fired, and they charged him.

In a 911 call he said: “I, ah, was cleaning. I was about to clean my gun, and I didn’t realize there was a round … I shot my wife.” Miller’s children can also be heard in the background of the call, reports CBS Philadelphia.

Trump refused to discuss President Trump, but she had family on the brain. “I’m coming out with a new book Oct. 10,” she said. “It’s called ‘Raising Trump.’” While the president is often censured by the press for childish behavior, The Donald, as Ivana called the president when they were married, isn’t the subject of the book.

NBA Alum Derek Fisher & Former Paralympic Swimmer Victoria Arlen Join Dancing with the Stars

Two former pro athletes are joining Dancing with the Stars!

When the season 25 premiere airs in mid-September, audiences will see NBA alum Derek Fisher compete, a source tells PEOPLE.

Fisher, 43, was signed to multiple teams throughout his time in the NBA, including the Los Angeles Lakers from 1996-2004, before turning to coaching with the New York Knicks from 2014-16.

On Tuesday, Fisher entered a no contest plea related to a DUI crash that occurred earlier this summer. The retired NBA star reportedly flipped his car on the 101 Freeway in California just after 3 a.m. on June 5, according to multiple outlets. Fisher and his passenger, former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan, walked away unharmed, but he was arrested on suspicion of DUI. He entered a no contest plea to the traffic misdemeanor of driving with a blood alcohol level over .08 percent, his rep confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.

Also joining Fisher in the reality dance competition is former paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen, a second source confirms to PEOPLE. (Entertainment Tonight first reported the news.)

At the age of 11, Arlen got sick and was later diagnosed with “two equally rare conditions: Transverse Myelitis and Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, autoimmune disorders that caused swelling in my brain and spinal cord,” Arlen, 22, wrote in a May 2016 ESPN essay. She spent “10 years in a wheelchair paralyzed from the waist down.”

Supportive Ex! Lady Gaga’s Former Fiancé Taylor Kinney Attends Her Chicago Concert — See the Pics

A surprise guest was among the thousands in attendance at Lady Gaga‘s Chicago Wrigley Field concert on Friday.

Fans spotted the “Bad Romance” singer’s ex-fiancé, Taylor Kinney, among the throng of concertgoers. Several attendees posted about the celebrity sighting, with a few people sharing pics of the celebrity posing for snaps with people in the stadium.

“Tay with fans at Lady Gaga’s concert in Chicago last night. #TaylorKinney #LadyGaga,” a twitter user wrote for his post.

While Gaga didn’t address her ex’s attendance at the concert, she did post a pic and caption on Twitter, writing about her historic appearance at the Chicago stadium. “So proud to have been the 1st Woman to headline at Wrigley Field #joanneworldtour wih my manager and friend by my side! We love u Chicago!” Gaga wrote.

The Chicago Fire star had famously proposed to Gaga on Valentine’s Day in 2015, but the couple ended their five-year relationship in July of 2016.

The couple had always seemed supportive of each other’s careers. In 2016, Kinney turned down the opportunity to take the stage with Gaga at the Golden Globes award ceremony to make sure all eyes were on her.

“Do you want to know something wonderful?” she told PEOPLE that year. “They asked him to present tonight, but he said no because he just wanted it to be my night and he wanted to support me. Isn’t that special? I just found that out. I love him so much.”

The 31-year-old is currently on her Joanne world tour — based off of the album of the same name. Joanne reached the top of the U.S. charts in October. Her world tour kicked off in Vancouver on Aug. 1.

A new Netflix documentary on the famed singer titled Gaga: Five Foot Two, is set to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival before hitting the streaming service this fall.

Former PPQ Designer Amy Molyneaux Sets New Venture

NEW BEGINNINGS: Amy Molyneaux, former designer of the British clothing label PPQ, is preparing to launch a collection of her own: a resort and swimwear brand called Lelloue.
Molyneaux has launched Lelloue with her business partner Helen Johnson, and the partners are taking a bold, unapologetically glamorous approach in order to stand out in an increasingly saturated resortwear market.
“With the new brand, I’m focusing on what I think is needed, where I see the gap in the market. There is a huge amount of resortwear that’s bohemian and hippie, but none that embraces this Nineties power glamour,” said Molyneaux of her debut range which includes bold maxi mesh cover-ups, leopard-print or polka dot bikinis and high-waisted pants and jumpsuits made from luxurious printed silks.

“I wanted to add gold foil printing, silk satins and pieces that have structure yet can stretch easily,” added the designer, who has previously designed lingerie or swimwear for various brands as a consultant. “I’m homing in on the skills I’ve developed in the past 20 years.”
The decision to launch resortwear was also a personal one for Molyneaux, who said she always enjoyed seeing PPQ’s young clientele wear her flowy, chiffon

Former ‘Top Gear’ Star Involved In Serious Car Crash

TV presenter Richard Hammond has crashed an electric super car in Switzerland while filming for his TV show “The Grand Tour.”

The former “Top Gear” star was airlifted to a hospital, but he did not sustain any major injury and was conscious upon exiting the totaled vehicle, a Rimac Concept One, representatives confirmed Saturday.

The car burst into flames after the 47-year-old got himself out safely. Nobody else was involved in the crash.

“The Grand Tour” Twitter account released a statement:

The statement reads:

Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after completing the Hemburg Hill Climb in Switzerland in a Rimac Concept One, an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for “The Grand Tour” Season 2 on Amazon Prime, but very fortunately suffered no serious injury. Richard was conscious and talking, and climbed out of the car himself before the vehicle burst into flames. He was flown by Air Ambulance to hospital in St. Gallen to be checked over revealing a fracture to his knee. Nobody else was in the car or involved in the accident, and we’d like to thank the paramedics on site for their swift response. The cause of the crash is unknown and is being investigated.

“The Grand Tour” costar and fellow former “Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson tweeted Saturday about witnessing the incident:

Hammond previously had a serious crash in 2006 while filming “Top Gear,” which caused brain injuries.

The Amazon Prime show “The Grand Tour” is essentially a continuation of “Top Gear.” In 2015, the BBC fired Clarkson after he committed “an unprovoked physical and verbal attack” on a crew member. After the ousting, the hosts decided to start a new show.

Marketing for this Amazon Prime iteration of the show involved crashed cars across the globe as seen below:

Former 007 George Lazenby on Becoming Bond

Combining a documentary and narrative approach, Hulu’s new film Becoming Bond chronicles the life of George Lazenby, the roguish Australian male model-turned-actor who succeeded Sean Connery in the role of James Bond.

Having never acted before in his life, Lazenby won the role of cinema’s most famous secret agent but only played the role once, in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. According to Lazenby, he turned his back on fame and fortune, rejecting a multi-picture and $ 1 million offer to return as 007. (The franchise ultimately wooed Connery back for one more film before Roger Moore took over the role.)

Becoming Bond  is built around Lazenby recalling his life — from his impoverished, problem child youth in Australia to his days as a mechanic and car salesman to finally his accidental career as a male model and then, of course, the big screen’s second James Bond — and love affairs, which are all reenacted in largely comedic fashion in scenes starring Josh Lawson (Superstore, House of Lies) as Lazenby.

Dean & DeLuca’s Reels in Former Ralph Lauren President Laura Lendrum

LENDRUM’S NEXT COURSE: Dean & DeLuca has named Laura Lendrum president of Dean & DeLuca markets and global retail.
In her most recent post as president at Ralph Lauren Corp., she was responsible for the group’s luxury, Polo, RRL, Denim & Supply and children’s stores. With more than 20 years of experience in the luxury, retail, wholesale and e-commerce sector, she has also worked for Gucci America and Yves Saint Laurent.
She joins the gourmand-seeking company at a time when it is broadening its reach and trying new concepts. Lendrum’s marching orders are to shape Dean & DeLuca’s brand vision and identity, overseeing strategic direction, management and execution of domestic and global retail markets. Digital will be a key piece of that strategy, including its web site, social media channels and apps. Building Dean & DeLuca’s private-label offerings — as the company did with distribution in Brown Thomas in Dublin — will be another focus. Expanding the culinary brand in other cities across the U.S. is another priority.
“Similar to luxury fashion retail, Dean & DeLuca sets the highest standard by offering its customers unique and diverse products,” Lendrum said.

Drake Rep Slams Former Porn Star’s Paternity Accusation: ‘She’s Just Another Woman Claiming He Got Them Pregnant’

Drake is hitting back at accusations from former porn star Sophie Brussaux, who claims she is pregnant with his child.

Brussaux—who was spotted with the rapper, 30, in January following his split from Jennifer Lopez—has hired two major New York City attorneys to begin the proceedings to prove paternity and seek child support, TMZ reports.

The site says Brussaux claims she is three and-a-half months pregnant, and believes the conception occurred at the end of January. A photo of the pair together in Amsterdam was taken on Jan. 24.

“If it’s in fact Drake’s child, which he does not believe it is, he will do right by the child,” Drake’s rep tells PEOPLE. “She’s just another woman in a long line of women claiming he got them pregnant.”

In Two Words and One Photo, Former Obama White House Photographer Schools Sarah Palin, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on Respect

Another day, another lesson in subtle shade-throwing from former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza.

On Thursday, Souza — who has regularly used his Instagram account to compare and contrast the Trump and Obama administrations — took aim at a buzzed-about new photo of Trump supporters Sarah PalinKid Rock and Ted Nugent posing mockingly in front of a portrait of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during their Wednesday evening visit to the White House.

In an apparent clapback, Souza posted a throwback photo of former President Barack Obama and his White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley sitting solemnly beneath a portrait of Republican icon and former President Ronald Reagan.

“Being respectful,” Souza captioned the snapshot.

Though the photographer didn’t mention Palin, Nugent or Kid Rock in his post, his followers were quick to pick up on the signature Souza shade.

“Oh God, the juxtaposition of this photo with the photo of Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock sums up the sorry state of our country,” wrote one of Souza’s followers.

“You are the best, most low-key, delightful troll ever,” applauded another commenter.

RELATED VIDEO: Watch: Natasha Stoynoff Breaks Silence, Accuses Donald Trump of Sexual Attack

This isn’t the first time Souza has trolled President Donald Trump on Instagram. In the months since Trump’s inauguration, Souza has posted several photos of Obama and his team that, when juxtaposed with of-the-moment news about the Trump administration, offer subtle critiques of the new president.

In February, for example, Souza highlighted the lack of female leadership in Trump’s White House by sharing a photo of Obama meeting in the Oval Office with three top advisers, all of whom were women. “This is a full-frame picture,” Souza captioned. “I guess you’d say I was trying to make a point.”

Many others on social media also criticized Palin, Nugent and Kid Rock’s photo. Here’s what some people are saying:

Clay Adler, Former MTV Star, Dead At 27

Clay Adler, known for appearing on two seasons of MTV’s “Newport Harbor: The Real Orange County,” has died, TMZ reports. He was 27. 

According to the outlet, Adler took his own life last month. He reportedly went shooting with some friends in the desert on March 25, law enforcement officials told TMZ. While they were firing, Adler is said to have turned a gun on himself. He reportedly died March 26 in the hospital.

Sources told TMZ Adler had no drugs or alcohol in his system, but noted that he had struggled with mental health issues in the past. 

“We are saddened by the news of Clay Adler’s passing,” MTV told The Huffington Post in a statement Tuesday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.”

A tribute to Adler was posted on what looks to be Allie Stockton’s Instagram page; Stockton appeared on “Newport Harbor” with Adler. 

 “At a loss for words and truly heartbroken. We love you so much Clay. I do hope you’re in this outfit when I see you again,” the caption reads.

Former ‘Power Rangers’ Star Ricardo Medina Jr. Pleads Guilty To Manslaughter

Ricardo Medina Jr., a former star of “Power Rangers Wild Force,” pleaded guilty on Thursday in the stabbing death of Joshua Sutter, the Los Angeles Court District Attorney’s Office announced. 

Medina “entered the plea to one felony count of voluntary manslaughter and admitted an allegation of using a sword in the killing,” the LA Court DA’s office said in a statement. 

The actor is facing up to six years in state prison for the crime. Sentencing is scheduled for March 30, according to the press release. 

The 38-year-old actor was arrested back in January, after he allegedly got into an argument with Sutter, which then turned into a physical fight. The LA Court DA’s office has called Sutter Medina’s “roommate,” though Medina’s attorney Allen Bell told KTLA in 2015 Sutter was just a friend, not a roommate

According to the LA County Sheriff’s Department, Medina went into his bedroom with his girlfriend in the midst of the fight, but Sutter forced his way into the room. Then, Medina allegedly stabbed Sutter with a sword he kept next to the bedroom door. Afterward, Medina called 911, waited for police and was arrested when they arrived. 

Medina was held in jail for a few days but he was released after the DA’s office declined to file any charges against him. The DA did, however, ask the LA County Sheriff’s Department to continue their investigation into the incident, ABC7 reported. 

At the time, Bell told ABC7, “It is a self-defense case. It’s been a self-defense case. You have an individual here that was the victim of a beating in the kitchen area before he went to the bedroom and closed and locked the door in order to secure himself from any continuing violence.”

Medina is best known for playing Cole Evans/Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in 2002’s “Power Rangers Wild Force.” He also played Dekker in “Power Rangers Samurai” in 2011–2012 and has had small parts on “ER” and “CSI: Miami.”

Cotton Citizen Taps Former James Perse Executive to Grow Brand

Cotton Citizen is gearing up for its next phase.
The Los Angeles-based men’s and women’s luxury basics line, which was started by Adam Vanunu in 2011, has hired Eddie Bromberg as president. Bromberg, who previously spent three years as vice president at James Perse, will help Vanunu grow the business.
Cotton Citizen is known for its brightly colored knits that are hand-dyed at a dye house that Vanunu’s family owns — a few years ago Vanunu took over running the facility, which specializes in denim. The line, which consists of hoodies, sweatshirts, thermals, joggers, T-shirts and tanks created in on-trend silhouettes with slight distressing, retails from $ 65 to $ 225 and has gained a following among celebrities including Sofia Richie and Hailey Baldwin.
But now Vanunu and Bromberg want to expand on that collection and continue to differentiate themselves from competitors such as Splendid and Michael Stars by broadening the offering to include more ready-to-wear pieces such as trucker jackets, skirts and denim at some point.
“We want it to be more collection-driven,” said Vanunu, who added that they also want to move into home furnishings in the future. “We consider ourselves more of a fashion brand and we want to offer pieces that can

There is Nothing Dead in This Grandiose Former Funeral Establishment of the City of Paris.

2015-09-27-1443379118-5206737-104mainpix.JPG

Art Galore.

The 104, as it is called, spelled out in French as Le Centquatre-Paris, is a multimedia art center partly funded by the city of Paris. Located in a vast compound of gigantic halls and structures, it houses dance floors, exhibit halls, stores, libraries, workshop classes and stages. Calling itself an artistic and cultural factory, the place is geared towards public service — Art as a public service is definitely a great concept!

On any given day a buzz of artists, dancers, yogis, actors, painters, sculptors, fill the cavernous space with laughter and life. Visitors pop up at the arts library, shoppers stroll through the Emmaus thrifstore. It’s at the same time neighborhoods hang-out for young skaters, and an elite art space for openings and happenings.

Its success is real and tangible. You can witness art in various forms glow right under your eyes, and see how art really is a street expression in its best form. Over 60 percent of the performing artists at the 104 are not French.

2015-09-27-1443380423-538875-104logo.png

The fall schedule of exhibition is heavy with many new shows coming up: dance performances, visual arts, circus acts, theater and music fests. Solo acts or ensemble pieces, no matter what month you are able to go, several art forms will be on display or happening, including a ball in April open to all. About 50 artists in residence are planned to offer their creations for the 2015-2016 season.

An official opening was held Sept. 26 to present the 25,000 square feet of available galleries and open spaces to the public for the new season. On Oct. 3, a Nuit Blanche (White Night) is planned, when the space will stay open all night. The calendar is so full of events that it would be impossible to see and hear everything offered to each senses.

Les Pompes-Funèbres : From Death to Life.

Located on the site of a former municipal undertaker, the name comes from the original entrance’s address, at 104 rue d’Aubervilliers. This was not the mom and pop funeral home where one would visit one deceased family member in a flower-filled room and weep. This was where hundreds of horse-drawn hearses used to park and be maintained. Now an artistic factory, it churns out events and gatherings at a vertiginous speed.

The buildings were erected in 1873 by the diocese, ruled by religious staff; later on, with the separation of state and church, the city created in 1905 the Service municipal des pompes funèbres (Municipal Service of Funeral Process), considered at the times as a liberal progress, as it meant that from then on, regardless of religion or condition, everyone was due a proper funeral.

Before that, divorced women, suicide victims, atheists, all were to be buried at night without any dignified ceremony or family members present. The municipal monopole was taking care of everything, from coffins to hearses, from porters to cemeteries. One of the important rituals after a death was to wrap the front door of the building where the deceased laid with massive black curtains on each side of the front door – those were called the pompes.

This black veil was used until the 1980s. The Municipal Monopole was still in practice until the middle of 1997. Since then, the ceremonial is now left to family and private companies.

2015-09-27-1443379187-2043800-104hearse.jpg

At the Pompes Funèbres, 27,000 hearses were in use, with a staff of 1,400, only forty of which were women. Carpenters, wood workers, steel workers, mechanics, auto body specialists, seamstresses, cooks for the on-site workers’ cafeteria. Civil servants, horse caterers and other employees were lodged on the premises. There was even a football team, musicians, and firefighters dedicated to the ensemble of constructions. The funeral parlor did not handle corpses – that was done in private parlors. Except in times of war, when the bodies of soldiers were given back to their families.

Creativity at its Best.

So the place was truly always alive (pun intended) in a way, but for some 15 years when it was closed down, before the re-birth as an art center in 2008. When I last visited at the beginning of September, I saw several artists using the multi-levels center floor as a dance stage and yoga space, kids running around huge sculptures, workers having a sandwich on beach chairs, the feel of community involvement was very tangible.

2015-09-27-1443379310-119530-104weipei.jpg

At each end of the space giant art pieces jetted to the open sky – this is a place that could easily accommodate one of Louise Bourgeois giant spider sculptures. Not every art space can. An enormous funky piece made of hundreds of bicycles wheels and frames in a sculpture by Chinese Al Weiwei named “Stacked” was taking one end of the forum – representing the transportation mode of his native country, while a metal snake of rust-color boxes was being installed for the upcoming vernissage.

2015-09-27-1443379253-9869926-104sculpture.jpg

Concerts for all ages and all style are planned for the fall schedule. Several art shows will also open at the various venues encompassed in the buildings. It’s a real artistic community all housed under one roof. A glass roof that is.

The architecture is reminiscent of the former market halles (market halls) that were once famously popular in the center of the capital. Why waste beautiful edifices? The eco friendly turn-around of the classic buildings is a testament of the creativity of its new users, all artists.

Side Shows.

A food truck selling pizzas is permanently parked inside the Centquatre. The Emmaus store resales clothes and furniture pieces at very low prices, and involves members of the community to work there. Canvas beach chairs invite people to lounge at will. Several corners are meant to be used as sitting areas, or even picnic settings.

The café’s menu is full of childhood favorites, such as toasts, soft eggs, fries and milk-shakes. It is named the Café Caché (the Hidden Café). Another resting place for food is the Grand Central restaurant, the loft-like space offering traditional French dishes at a medium range price – think sausage and lentils, beef cheeks, mussels and fries, rabbit with granny smith apples, steak with Béarnaise sauce, etc..

2015-09-27-1443379498-4706031-grandcentral.jpg

The CentQuatre had a challenge — to fill the enormous spaces spread on several city blocks, and despite its sheer size, the place works — it is both a community haven and a convivial space for all. Despite being located in an untrendy area of Paris, that has not stopped Parisians of every corner to make the trip for the sake of art. Over half a million visitors/spectators came by last year. Bravo!

Annette Worsley-Taylor, Former Creative Director of London Fashion Week, Dies at 71

LONDON — Annette Worsley-Taylor, a former creative director of London Fashion Week who helped reignite global interest in British fashion, died this week at the age of 71. The cause of her death was lung cancer, a British Fashion Council spokesman said.
Worsley-Taylor was a driving force in establishing London Fashion Week. After launching the New Wave exhibition at London’s Ritz Hotel in 1974, in order to introduce young British designers to the international market, she went on to found London Designer Collections in 1975. After establishing the collections, the executive went on to win funding from the British government’s Department of Trade and Industry, to support a newly formed British Fashion Council. After that, Worsley-Taylor established the London Designer Show in 1990, which the BFC called a “prototype” for London Fashion Week in its current form.
A combination of the seemingly scatty yet surprisingly steely, the tireless Worsley-Taylor was an integral part of the renaissance of London fashion in the early Eighties when the likes of BodyMap, Katharine Hamnett, Betty Jackson and, later, Rifat Özbek and John Galliano put the British capital back on the global fashion map as their shows became must-sees for international retailers. She remained a champion of

How A Former Shy Girl Became A Confident Career Coach

Dear readers,

Welcome! I’m a self-employed career and business coach who helps introverts clarify and thrive in their true livelihood so they can have the meaning and balance they crave. I love my work, and I can’t wait to start getting your questions for this career and business advice column for introverts.

Let’s start off this relationship with me confiding in you.

My shy girl past

I was painfully shy all through my school years. I loved to escape by reading and climbing trees. Up in a tree, I could relax and watch people, but they couldn’t see me.

When I was little, people could barely hear me speak—if I could get any words out at all. The more people demanded I speak up, the worse I felt about myself, and the more I wanted to hide and stay silent.

I grew up in a loud and extroverted family, and I didn’t understand why I felt so out of sync. I craved quiet. I almost craved invisibility as well. One time, I crawled into a refrigerator box on the patio and happily read there for hours. I was delighted that no one could find me!

And yet, I also hated invisibility. I wanted to be noticed, to be heard! I had questions to ask. I had plenty of ideas and opinions. I just had trouble saying them out loud.

I was also highly sensitive—easily rattled by noise, light, speed, heights, and, well, people. (It wasn’t until I was an adult that I discovered what “high sensitivity” was and how to work with it instead of against it.) Turns out, it often correlates with introversion.

As a result of my sensitivity and external stressors, I suffered from a lot of anxiety. I didn’t know this then; to me, swirling thoughts, stomachaches, and fear of speaking (at all) was my normal state of being.

Throughout school, I was obsessed with getting good grades, probably as a way to not rock the boat and remain invisible. But when my 11th grade English teacher assigned an oral report, I panicked! I approached the teacher after class to see if she would just give me an F so I wouldn’t have to do it. An F for me was a horrifying thought, but speaking in front of the class was worse.

She refused, and I lived with a stomachache and panicky thoughts for two weeks. At last, I eked out a passable report. I think the pounding of my heart must have been louder than my trembling quiet voice. It felt like a miracle that I survived the experience.

(My heart goes out to kids in the same situation today. Luckily, teachers are getting more information about how to help.)

Speaking got easier in college. I didn’t “grow out of shyness” as people often assume will happen; rather, I finally tuned into my passions. The more interested I was, the less I noticed my fear.

Still, I dreaded giving oral reports, and I was one of the quieter students in class. I was driven by passions, but I still wasn’t confident.

My winding career journey

After college, I wanted to save the world, and I thought teaching was the perfect outlet. Despite my fears, I took a job as a health educator.

With the help of on-the-job training and a pre-set curriculum, my speaking anxiety gradually went away! My confidence was growing. Looking back, I now understand that passion (along with support) can trump fear. That lesson has shaped my work.

Even though I had more ease and confidence with public speaking, I still found it exhausting. After far too many days ended with my head on my desk and me in tears, I quit my job without another one lined up. I quickly went through my small savings and had to get help.

I went to a career coach, who helped me understand why my last job wasn’t a good fit. What a relief it was to learn I wasn’t a freak! There was nothing wrong with me, nothing to fix—I was simply an introvert and needed to focus on my strengths.

After that turning point, I tried various roles over the years, including human resources management and web marketing. I chose work that allowed more alone time to think, and I still found ways to have a say in groups. I found my own leadership style, and my confidence grew.

Still, I had a sense that work could be more fulfilling. With much soul searching and professional career guidance, I discovered that I was happiest when using my coaching skills, and I decided that coaching was the best fit for me.

My long-term dream of self-employment started to come into focus as I imagined being a coach. I was ready to spread my wings even wider.

But are introverts good at being self-employed?

At first, I was nervous about whether I could handle things like promoting and growing a business, which are typically associated with extroversion. I simply couldn’t bring myself to promote my business in the standard extroverted way.

To my surprise, the more I did things my own way, that was aligned with me, the better things went! People were drawn to my events and services, probably because of my authenticity and non-salesy approach. My business grew.

Turns out introverts can be great at the so-called extrovert territories of leadership, self-employment, and self-promotion—if they do it their own way.

I discovered I could just show up at a networking event, without perfect words, and simply engage in meaningful conversations. No sales pitch in hand. I was just myself. No extrovert mask. No race to collect stacks of business cards.

The more I took steps that aligned with my heart and my nature, the more excited and fulfilled I felt. My work energized me. People commented that I was glowing. And that glow helped attract more clients. Being true to myself paid off. It felt like a gift from heaven.

Who I am today

People who know me today are surprised to hear that I used to be extremely shy. In fact, sometimes they don’t understand that I’m still introverted, but I am. I’m confident, and I enjoy socializing, but it has to be on my terms. I still value my alone time, when I can slow down, breathe, and listen to what my heart tells me.

Introduction to this advice column

I’m not about doling out directions such as “you should do X because I said so.” I want to help you find and do what is true for you. I can detect where things are getting off track and help nudge you back into your true path.

Above all, I want you to understand that you can earn a living and be true to yourself. I’m challenging that outdated cultural norm that says we have to become extroverted to succeed. That’s what the Quiet Revolution is about, and I’m on board.

Career or business worries? Want to know how to say something at work? Want to figure out how marketing or networking can work best for you? Send your questions to Val Nelson!

Former Marine Travels 15 Miles On Horse And Foot To Honor Late Veteran

There was no horsing around for this man, who stopped at nothing to honor a fellow veteran.

Richard Kowalker, a 66-year-old from Middletown, Connecticut, often attends veteran funerals with his “riderless horses” as part of a tradition to honor a soldier’s service. In this custom, a horse with boots set backwards and no rider in the saddle follows the casket.

The 66-year-old, who served as a Marine in Vietnam, was set to attend a funeral for World War II veteran Norman Varney this past Saturday. But the night before, he realized that his horse trailer was damaged and he would be unable to cart his horses there. That setback didn’t stop Kowalker, however; he alternately walked and rode the two horses through the night, traveling more than 15 miles to make it to the funeral, WSFB reported.

“The Marine Corps motto is “semper fidelis” — Latin for ‘always faithful.’ … I have a lifelong commitment to adhere to. Once a Marine, always a Marine,” Kowalker told The Huffington Post in an email. “Sgt. Norman Varney was at Iwo Jima in World War II, the most famous battle in Marine Corps history. I considered it an honor to be in the presence of such people. … I am quite sure he would have done the same for me if the situation was reversed.”

The extraordinary gesture touched many and a fundraising page was created to help pay for a new horse trailer. Donors have already doubled the original goal, raising more than $ 4,000 for Kowalker.

Police from different towns along the walk escorted him during his trek, according to the fundraising page. Later on, Ken Yavis, who owns a horse trailer, spotted Kowalker, his horse, Melody, and his friend’s horse, Sassy, WFSB reported. Yavis got his own trailer and helped Kowalker for the rest of the way, allowing the animals to take a break at his house and eventually bringing them to the service.

Yavis, like many others, was moved by Kowalker’s devotion.

“I never got a chance to serve,” Yavis told WFSB. “But someone like that who continues to give, you have to help him.”

For the humble Kowalker, his actions weren’t anything out of the ordinary.

“I gave my word and I like to be a person of my word,” he told WFSB.

Former MTV VJ Jesse Camp Sets The Record Straight About His Drug Use

After beating out 5,000 other contestants in 1998’s “Wanna Be A VJ” competition, an 18-year-old Jesse Camp became a high-profile “video jockey” on MTV, which was still riding high during the peak of its cultural relevance. But his eccentric look, dry sense of humor and distinctively high-pitched voice made viewers wonder if he was under the influence as he introduced their favorite videos. During a Friday interview with HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri, Camp set the record straight about what substances he was using when and how he ultimately decided to end his “hardcore drug era.”

17 Things Every Former Tomboy Knows To Be True

Art by Eva Hill

In fourth grade, I wore the same pair of overalls every day for an entire year. In fifth grade, it was a pair of Adidas sneakers, which I insisted on slipping my feet into every day until there were gaping holes in the toes. (The only way my mom got me to stop wearing them was by throwing them in the garbage while I was sleeping one night.) I hated the idea of looking “pretty,” I always wondered why I had to play softball and not baseball with the boys, and I was never ready for school picture day. I was a “tomboy.”

Tomboys are, by definition, young girls who tend to conform to traditionally masculine characteristics and habits when they’re young. As a former tomboy, I’m no stranger to dirt, sweat and an overwhelming obsession with Michael Jordan (he was and still is the King).

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being a girl who’s more interested in learning to bead or braid than play sports or prefers pink to green. Being “girly” is nothing to be ashamed of — I was just never that.

My childhood was filled with bruised knees, softball tournaments and cleats. And I know there are many women out there who can relate. These experiences shaped who I am today, leaving me with amazing memories, a specific fashion sense and a wicked competitive streak.

This one goes out to every lady who still has trouble putting on her $ 1.99 CVS eyeliner. Here are 17 things every former tomboy knows to be true:

1. Your shoe obsession will always be with sneakers, not heels. Practice makes perfect except when it comes to heels and… walking in them.

2. Your favorite movie as a kid was a straight-up action flick. And people still look at your weirdly when you tell them that. (For me, it was “The Fugitive.”)

3. You appreciate the beautiful simplicity of a ponytail. Everything else takes too much time.

4. You know how to stand up for yourself. After years of proving yourself on the kickball field with the boys you’re not afraid of a conflict or some friendly competition.

5. Putting on makeup is still a big mystery. When you’re forced to get dressed up, half the time you walk out looking like this.

6. Your childhood pictures are more embarrassing than most, because you look like a little boy.

7. Sweatpants not leggings. Always and forever.

8. You pride yourself on being competitive in every single sport. Maybe a little too competitive.

9. The girly clothing store “Limited Too” still makes you cringe a bit. So. Much. Glitter.

10. You were one of the only girls who played the saxophone or trombone in middle school. You wanted to be with boys and the flute just didn’t do it for you.

11. Wall ball was your jam in elementary school. And if anyone ever challenged you today, you could still (gleefully) crush them.

12. You’ve broken a bone — probably more than once. Whether you were playing sports or riding your skateboard, you were always falling and breaking something.

13. Pink will never be your color of choice. In the words of Amy Poehler, “Good for her! Not for me.”

14. You constantly have to remind people that just because you happen to be a woman doesn’t mean you don’t understand sports. So please, stop explaining football to me.

15. You said “dude” a lot, growing up. And you probably still do. .

16. LEGO space ships remind you of your childhood — not Easy Bake ovens.

17. Instead of hopping on the elliptical at the gym, you head straight to the squat rack. So please, dudes in the weight-lifting corner — stop looking surprised when I know what a hang clean is.

Former NBA Player Jay Williams: ‘I Threw It All Away’ (VIDEO)

Jay Williams was poised to become one of the biggest superstars in the NBA. After leading Duke to a NCAA championship in 2001 and earning a national player of the year title, he graduated early to receive a No. 2 draft pick with the Chicago Bulls.

After playing one season, Williams was riding his motorcycle in Chicago — a violation of his contract — and lost control, crashing into a utility pole. He survived the severed nerve, fractured pelvis, dislocated knee and internal bleeding, but the psychological damage of the accident remained. His NBA career was over before it really began, and Williams tells Oprah in his upcoming “Super Soul Sunday” interview that he was left only with remorse.

“The first thing I yell is, ‘I threw it all away,’ Williams says. “I felt at that moment that I had thrown everything I had just worked for my entire life away.”

Williams says he couldn’t even think about being lucky to be alive. “I couldn’t even process what was happening at that particular moment,” he says.

Weighing heavily on Williams’ mind were the warning signs he ignored. “I’ve been told so many times not to ride this bike,” he says. “I’ve had a dream about this particular moment that I decide not to listen to.”

He’s referencing a premonition he had at age 17 about his accident. Williams dreamt he was spinning out of control and looked up to see a red fire hydrant, the exact scene he would experience years later during his motorcycle crash.

“Here I was in the situation that I’ve got all these signs telling me not to do this and I still put myself in that position to do so,” Williams says. “And, yeah, I felt like I threw everything I worked my entire life for away.”

The accident tested his will to live, and Williams says he became consumed with thoughts of “what could have been.” After 13 surgeries and hours of physical therapy, Williams attempted to return to the NBA in 2006 but was unsuccessful. He says he has spent the last decade on a journey to forgive himself and reclaim his purpose in life.

Jay Williams opens up to Oprah about his darkest moments and how he learned to let go on “Super Soul Sunday” airing Sunday, March 15 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.

Andy Cohen Jokes That Ryan Seacrest Had Former ‘American Idol’ Co-Host Brian Dunkleman Killed

On Thursday night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” host Andy Cohen was trying to get Kelly Clarkson to Plead The Fifth when he joked:

“Kelly easily withstood the pressure-cooker that was ‘American Idol,’ before Ryan Seacrest had co-host Brian Dunkleman killed.”

Co-host? Dunkleman? We had to access the parts of our brains reserved for useless pop culture knowledge to vaguely recall that, oh yeah, there was another guy who held a microphone and used to stand on stage next to Seacrest during Season 1 of “American Idol.”

This Former Bachelorette Sewed Her Own $15 Red Carpet Dress on the Plane. Wait, What?

Prepare to try and not be jealous of former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, ‘k? Beyond having that amazing head of hair and stunning rock, she’s also apparently quite the talented seamstress, whipping up this DIY dress on the plane ride to last night’s premiere of season 19 of The Bachelor.

Looking at how perfect the draping is, I’m honestly so surprised she made that—and for $ 15, according to People‘s Instagram. Sewing a simple shift would challenge me, much less a Grecian-inspired one-shoulder gown ready for a red carpet strut. Plus, there are the practicals to consider, people: How’d she get scissors on the plane?

Did any of you watch the premiere last night? Glamour‘s guilty—there was quite the chatty email chain going on.

Al Feldstein Dead: Former Mad Magazine Editor Dies At 88

NEW YORK (AP) — Before “The Daily Show,” ”The Simpsons” or even “Saturday Night Live,” Al Feldstein helped show America how to laugh at authority and giggle at popular culture.

Millions of young baby boomers looked forward to that day when the new issue of Mad magazine, which Feldstein ran for 28 years, arrived in the mail or on newsstands. Alone in their room, or huddled with friends, they looked for the latest of send-up of the president or of a television commercial. They savored the mystery of the fold-in, where a topical cartoon appeared with a question on top that was answered by collapsing the page and creating a new, and often, hilarious image. Thanks in part to Feldstein, who died Tuesday at his home in Montana at age 88, comics were more than escapes into alternate worlds of superheroes and clean-cut children. They were a funhouse tour of current events and the latest crazes. Mad was breakthrough satire for the post-World War II era — the kind of magazine Holden Caulfield of “The Catcher In the Rye” might have read, or better, might have founded.

“Basically everyone who was young between 1955 and 1975 read Mad, and that’s where your sense of humor came from,” producer Bill Oakley of “The Simpsons” later explained.

Feldstein’s reign at Mad, which began in 1956, was historic and unplanned. Publisher William M. Gaines had started Mad as a comic book four years earlier and converted it to a magazine to avoid the restrictions of the then-Comics Code and to persuade founding editor Harvey Kurtzman to stay on. But Kurtzman soon departed anyway and Gaines picked Feldstein as his replacement. Some Kurtzman admirers insisted that he had the sharper edge, but Feldstein guided Mad to mass success.

One of Feldstein’s smartest moves was to build on a character used by Kurtzman. Feldstein turned the freckle-faced Alfred E. Neuman into an underground hero — a dimwitted everyman with a gap-toothed smile and the recurring stock phrase “What, Me Worry?” Neuman’s character was used to skewer any and all, from Santa Claus to Darth Vader, and more recently in editorial cartoonists’ parodies of President George W. Bush, notably a cover image The Nation that ran soon after Bush’s election in 2000 and was captioned “Worry.”

“The skeptical generation of kids it shaped in the 1950s is the same generation that, in the 1960s, opposed a war and didn’t feel bad when the United States lost for the first time and in the 1970s helped turn out an Administration and didn’t feel bad about that either,” Tony Hiss and Jeff Lewis wrote of Mad in The New York Times in 1977.

“It was magical, objective proof to kids that they weren’t alone, that … there were people who knew that there was something wrong, phony and funny about a world of bomb shelters, brinkmanship and toothpaste smiles. Mad’s consciousness of itself, as trash, as comic book, as enemy of parents and teachers, even as money-making enterprise, thrilled kids. In 1955, such consciousness was possibly nowhere else to be found.”

Feldstein and Gaines assembled a team of artists and writers, including Dave Berg, Don Martin and Frank Jacobs, who turned out such enduring features as “Spy vs. Spy” and “Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions.” Fans of the magazine ranged from the poet-musician Patti Smith and activist Tom Hayden to movie critic Roger Ebert, who said Mad helped inspire him to write about film.

“Mad’s parodies made me aware of the machine inside the skin — of the way a movie might look original on the outside, while inside it was just recycling the same old dumb formulas. I did not read the magazine, I plundered it for clues to the universe,” Ebert once explained.

“The Portable Mad,” a compilation of magazine highlights edited by Feldstein in 1964, is a typical Mad sampling. Among its offerings: “Some Mad Devices for Safer Smoking” (including a “nasal exhaust fan” and “disposable lung-liner tips”); “The Mad Academy Awards for Parents” (one nominee does her “And THIS is the thanks I get!” routine); “The Lighter Side of Summer Romances;” and “Mad’s Teenage Idol Promoter of the Year” (which mocks Elvis Presley and the Beatles.)

Under Gaines and Feldstein, Mad’s sales flourished, topping 2 million in the early 1970s and not even bothering with paid advertisements until well after Feldstein had left. The magazine branched out into books, movies (the flop “Up the Academy”) and a board game, a parody of Monopoly.

But not everyone was amused.

During the Vietnam War, Mad once held a spoof contest inviting readers to submit their names to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover for an “Official Draft Dodger Card.” Feldstein said two bureau agents soon showed up at the magazine’s offices to demand an apology for “sullying” Hoover’s reputation. The magazine also attracted critics in Congress who questioned its morality, and a $ 25 million lawsuit in the early 1960s from music publishers who objected to the magazine’s parodies of Irving Berlin’s “Always” and other songs, a long legal process that was resolved in Mad’s favor.

“We doubt that even so eminent a composer as plaintiff Irving Berlin should be permitted to claim a property interest in iambic pentameter,” Judge Irving Kaufman wrote at the time.

By Feldstein’s retirement, in 1984, Mad had succeeded so well in influencing the culture that it no longer shocked or surprised: Circulation had dropped to less than a third of its peak, although the magazine continues to be published in local editions around the world.

Feldstein moved west from the magazine’s New York headquarters, first to Wyoming and later Montana. From a horse and llama ranch north of Yellowstone National Park, he ran a guest house and pursued his “first love” — painting wildlife, nature scenes and fantasy art and entering local art contests. In 2003, he was elected into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame, named for the celebrated cartoonist.

Born in 1925, Feldstein grew up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn. He was a gifted cartoonist who was winning prizes in grade school and, as a teenager, at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. He got his first job in comics around the same time, working at a shop run by Eisner and Jerry Iger. One of his earliest projects was drawing background foliage for “Sheena, Queen of the Jungle,” which starred a female version of Tarzan.

Feldstein served in the military at the end of World War II, painting murals and drawing cartoons for Army newspapers. After his discharge, he freelanced for various comics before landing at Entertainment Comics, whose titles included Tales From the Crypt, Weird Science and Mad. Much of Entertainment Comics was shut down in the 1950s in part because of government pressure, but Mad soon caught on as a stand-alone magazine, willing to take on both sides of the generation gap.

“We even used to rake the hippies over the coals,” Feldstein would recall. “They were protesting the Vietnam War, but we took aspects of their culture and had fun with it. Mad was wide open. Bill loved it, and he was a capitalist Republican. I loved it, and I was a liberal Democrat.”

Former Banksy Collaborator Says Online Photos Of Him Are Real

Ever since Banksy arrived in New York City this month, bloggers have gone crazy speculating as to the true identify of Britain’s illustrious — and very anonymous — street artist.

It turns out we may have already seen his face before.

Joel Unangst, a Los Angeles warehouse owner who granted Banksy the space to erect his first American art show, confirmed that the man featured in photos the Daily Mail published in 2008 is the devilish graffiti master himself.

In an interview with The Huffington Post’s Mallika Rao, Unangst pointed specifically to these images, claiming that they are, in fact, the real deal.

“There’s pictures of him at the Daily Mail,” he said.

Unangst has spoken about his experience of meeting Banksy in Los Angeles before, describing the mysterious Brit as a man who dresses in white paint-smudged T-shirts, shorts, and sneakers. Following his 2007 interview with The New Yorker, however, Unangst had a “fallout” with Banksy and his team, thus ending his communication with the famous street artist.

“If you want to be cool with Banksy, you don’t really talk about him,” Unangst explained to HuffPost.

For more information on why Unangst and other street art figures believe Banksy has been able to keep his identity a secret, check out our complete interview here. For more on the Banksy’s month-long New York City residency, which ends Thursday, visit our Live Blog.
