Gap in Flashback, Mines 50-Year History for Collection

Ah, memories.
Gap Inc. will launch Archive Reissue — Logo Remix, a collection for men and women that includes T-shirts, sweatshirts and rugby shirts, designed with logos from the brand’s 50-year history. Logo Remix will be available at gap.com on Jan. 27 and select Gap stores globally beginning Jan. 29.
A limited-edition Logo Remix capsule featuring 30 one-of-a-kind items, made by deconstructing and reworking vintage Gap logo sweatshirts and T-shirts from the brand’s archives, was assembled by hand at Gap’s New York design studio.
A Logo Remix film is populated by a cast of  global talent that’s creating culture on their own terms through music, acting, comedy and activism. “They’re the world’s leading culture remixers,” said Craig Brommers, Gap’s chief marketing officer. “Gap is always one to celebrate and bring culture to the mainstream.”

A Brief History of Heidi Klum’s Unbelievably Over-the-Top Halloween Costumes

If there is one celebrity who is completely and totally obsessed with Halloween, it’s Heidi Klum. Year after year, the supermodel wears an over-the-top costume to the annual Halloween bash she’s been hosting in honor of her favorite dress-up holiday since 2001.

And this year is no different.

While we wait until the frightful night to find out which crazy costume the supermodel will choose this year, we’re taking a moment to look back at some of Klum’s greatest Halloween party looks of all time in the video above — watch it now! — from a fully-gilded extraterrestrial golden alien in 2003 to becoming a cadaver in 2011.

Looking for more style content? Click here to subscribe to the PeopleStyle Newsletter for amazing shopping discounts, can’t-live-without beauty products and more.

As it turns out, Klum’s crazy costumes aren’t a solo project. The star enlists the help of many makeup artists and designers to help her concoct the coolest looks for her party each year.

For example, the model underwent 10 hours of prosthetics to mold the cartoonish proportions of her Jessica Rabbit costume in 2015, and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano even designed the sparkling red dress for her look.

Major ISPs now say they won't sell your browsing history. Yeah. Right.

Major ISPs now say they won't sell your browsing history. Yeah. Right.Internet service providers are in an awkward spot. After getting all dressed up for the sell-your-data dance, it turns out they'll be staying home.  Or so they claim.
Reuters reports that representatives from Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T all came out today to assure worried consumers that the companies will not in fact sell customers' browsing histories to the highest bidder.  "We do not sell our broadband customers’ individual web browsing history," writes Comcast Chief Privacy Officer Gerard Lewis on the company's blog . "We did not do it before the FCC’s rules were adopted, and we have no plans to do so."   But should we trust Lewis and his counterparts at AT&T and Verizon? SEE ALSO: The software that could prevent ISPs from selling your browsing history could also just make things worse The denials were issued after the House and Senate voted to repeal landmark consumer privacy rules passed in 2016 that would have blocked internet service providers from selling the browsing history of their customers.  The public backlash has been strong — people are even donating to GoFundMes seeking to buy the browsing histories of members of Congress (although the success of those efforts is very much in doubt as no one is currently selling a "Congress's Browsing History" package deal) — and major ISPs are rushing to tell everyone that
hey hey hey, we're the good guys here. And yet.  The Electronic Frontier Foundation's Kate Tummarello points out the obvious incongruity of ISPs denying that they plan to take advantage of the new privacy landscape when those same companies lobbied so hard to bring it about.  "Those rules were a huge victory for consumers," Tummarello wrote on the EFF blog of the to-be-repealed rules. "Of course, the ISPs that stand to make money off of violating your privacy have been lobbying Congress to repeal those rules. Unfortunately, their anti-consumer push has been working." What's more, it's not like internet service providers haven't creeped hard on customers before. They most certainly have.  "Consumers have every reason to be skeptical about what the ISPs say," the EFF's Karen Gullo wrote to
Mashable, "because, as we have pointed out, they have already tried many of the practices — including hijacking your searches — that they are now allowed to do thanks to the party-line vote in Congress." Spokespersons for Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T can proclaim their devotion to your privacy all they want, but if the past is any indication you'd be right to remain skeptical.

The Brawny Man Is The Brawny Woman For Women’s History Month

Brawny is ringing in Women’s History Month by declaring (again) that #StrengthHasNoGender. 

The brand’s latest ad campaign highlights groundbreaking women in history and also focuses specifically on four inspiring women in STEM. This is the campaign’s second iteration, which was launched for the first time last year during Women’s History Month.

The ad campaign includes five videos; the main main one, titled “Breaking Barriers,” highlights the accomplishments of historic women like Harriet Tubman, Marie Curie and Serena Williams. The four other videos in the campaign focus on four women who are making history right now ― such as the first black female combat pilot in the U.S. armed forces.

Scroll below to read about these four badass women. 

1. Dr. Patty Lopez is a datacenter engineer, STEM leader and has won seven patents awards. Listen to her story here

2. Vernice Armour was the first black female combat pilot in the U.S. armed forces. Listen to her story here

3. Brittany Wenger is a self-taught coder who invented a groundbreaking breast cancer detection program. Oh, and she’s only a senior in college. Listen to her story here.

4. Dr. Anna Kornbrot is an oral surgeon, and the first woman to graduate from University of Pennsylvania. Listen to her story here

Brawny donated $ 75,000 towards STEM education for participants in women’s empowerment organization Girls Inc.

“There are women and girls everywhere who exhibit strength and resilience in their lives, and that’s the inspiration behind the Brawny #StrengthHasNoGender campaign,” Frances Morgan, senior brand manager at Georgia-Pacific, said in a press release. “STEM is among many areas of society that are underrepresented by females, and we felt this would be a powerful platform to address this issue. Our partnership with Girls, Inc. will help promote girls’ interest in these fields and empower them to break gender stereotypes.” 

For the month of March, shoppers can get a “limited edition” of Brawny paper towels that feature the Brawny woman not man. Commercial gimmick? Yes. A kinda fun one? Also, yes.

This Women’s History Month, remember that we have the power to make history every day. Follow along with HuffPost on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in March using #WeMakeHerstory.

#TrumpHistoryLecture Is Revisionist History The Way Donald Likes It

This week Donald Trump went after civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis, saying Lewis was “all talk, talk, talk – no action or results” after Lewis questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.

In 1965, Lewis’ skull was fractured after being beaten by Alabama police during the historic march from Selma to Montgomery. That same year, a 19-year-old Donald Trump began to feel the beginning agony of some real pesky heel spurs, before talk, talk, talking his way out of serving in Vietnam.

This week’s HuffPost Comedy’s hashtag game dug into Trump’s very odd and murky view of history. It’s #TrumpHistoryLecture.

This Dinner Party Handbook Is The Perfect Way To Learn Queer History

An awesome new project is in the works that will provide fodder for an inclusive conversation about queer history while bringing people together in a dinner party setting.

“Serving Pride: The Queer History Dinner Party Handbook” is currently engaged in a Kickstarter campaign but its creators hope to have the handbook complete by June ― just in time for Pride 2017.

“Coming out is, in some ways, one of the most important political acts we do as queer people,” co-creator Joey Stern told The Huffington Post. “We say to friends and family ‘See me, see me like this.’ Learning about our history, teaching others about our history, thats how we say to each-other ‘See us, see all of us.’ It’s not just learning history, but learning it together that really solidifies that experience. You’re not alone, you’re part of vast and connected community.”

Resources like “Serving Pride” are more important than ever, in an era when its easy to lose sight of our history as LGBTQ people and our collective struggles.

Head here to check out the Kickstarter campaign and keep your eyes peeled for more from “Serving Pride: The Queer History Dinner Party Handbook.”

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher: A History of Their Mother-Daughter Collaborations

Only a day after iconic actress and writer Carried Fisher died at age 60 after suffering a heart attack, her equally famous mother, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, died at age 84, reportedly due to a possible stroke.

Calling Debbie Reynolds’ and Carrie Fisher’s relationship “complicated” is likely an understatement. They had a fraught relationship that many Fisher used as inspiration for in some of her most famous writings, including semi-autobiographical book and subsequent film Postcards from the Edge and her 2008 memoir Wishful Drinking. The pair shared the screen, stage and page on a variety of occasions. Let’s take a look.

Fisher made her television debut as a 13-year-old in Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children. Fisher played a Girl Scout, which was fitting, given her mother’s well-documented love of the organization. The program — footage of which is scarce to non-existent — was based on the old “Monday’s child…” rhyme and featured Reynolds and children singing songs along those lines.

Reynolds and Fisher made their Broadway debut in the same production, 1973’s revival of Irene. Fisher was 16 and played “Debutante;” the show’s run was widely lauded and ran for nearly 600 performances. Reynolds was nominated for her only Tony Award for her role as Irene O’Dare, though she lost to Glynis Johns for A Little Night Music. (The show earned four Tony nominations in all.)

Fisher adapted her 1987 novel Postcards from the Edge into a film of the same name in 1990. Despite the obvious parallels between her relationship with Reynolds and that of the film’s central characters, both Fisher and director Mike Nichols brushed off the idea that it was drawn directly from their relationship.

“I wrote about a mother actress and a daughter actress,” she told Entertainment Weekly in 1990. “I’m not shocked that people think it’s about me and my mother. It’s easier for them to think I have no imagination for language, just a tape recorder with endless batteries.”

Fisher then reunited Reynolds with her old pal—and onetime frenemy—Elizabeth Taylor in These Old Broads, a 2001 television movie that aired on ABC. (Reynolds’ first husband (and Carrie’s dad) Eddie Fisher infamously left his family to marry Taylor in 1959.)  Fisher wrote the film’s teleplay, and as Shirley MacLaine recalled to the Los Angeles Times, “It was a very serious thing for them — here’s the daughter of one, who’s the stepdaughter of the other. The three of them met and decided what they would and wouldn’t say. It was really quite Hollywoodishly historical.” The film notably included moments where Reynolds and Taylor banter about a “Freddie Hunter” who their characters fought over some years before.

Fisher and Reynolds then turned their relationship into an actual movie with this year’s Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, from documentary veterans Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom.

“Carrie wanted to make Bright Lights for Debbie and Debbie wanted to make it for Carrie,” HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins told Variety Wednesday.

Much of the film’s footage was shot in 2015, and HBO is weighing the pair’s death this week in its consideration of the documentary’s air date.

“If this was a Hollywood script, no one would believe it,” Nevins continued. “They just loved each other so much. The bond was just unbreakable.”

DOUBLE DUTY: The Duchess of Cambridge carried out a series of royal engagements in London on Nov. 22.
The young royal visited the Natural History Museum in Kensington earlier this afternoon then attended the Place2Be awards ceremony in Mansion House later that evening.
A patron of the institution, she attended a children’s tea party to bid farewell to Dippy the Diplodocus, a dinosaur that has been mounted in the museum’s Hintze Hall since 1905. The pre-historic figure is part of a show that will go on a nationwide tour for two years.

Kristen Wiig Sings A Very Questionable History Of Thanksgiving On ‘SNL’

Kristen Wiig joined “Saturday Night Live” cast members in singing the history of Thanksgiving.

But some of her claims — like Christopher Columbus sailing to the Americas from South Korea — were, let’s just say, somewhat dubious. It was enough to prompt special guests Steve Martin and Will Forte to drop in and call out Wiig on her inaccuracy.

“Guys, I know I adjusted some of the facts so they would rhyme, like any true historian,” Wiig said in her defense, before her guests also got swept up in the holiday spirit.

After all, who needs real facts in this post-truth world?

The I.B.Tauris History of Monasticism

The I.B.Tauris History of Monasticism


From the earliest centuries of the church, asceticism and the contemplative life have been profoundly important aspects not just of western Christianity but of western civilization as a whole. For even as monasteries withdrew from the main currents of their societies they provided fertile soil and sanctuary to the liberal arts and sciences as well as those who wanted to spend their lives focused upon God. They became the driving cultural forces of Europe, nurturing education, music, manuscript illumination, art and history, agriculture and animal husbandry – all in addition to spiritual guidance. In this first general history of monasticism in the West since 1900, G R Evans explores the cloistered communities and individuals that have aspired to the ascetic ideal, assessing the huge impact they have made on the wider church and its practices. Including many of the best known names in Christian history – such as Cuthbert, Columba, Hilda of Whitby, Peter Abelard and Thomas Merton – this authoritative survey traces the monastic impulse, in all its rich complexity, from its beginnings in the Egyptian desert up to the present-day ecumenical Taizé community.

The History of Visual Magic in Computers

The History of Visual Magic in Computers


If you have ever looked at a fantastic adventure or science fiction movie, or an amazingly complex and rich computer game, or a TV commercial where cars or gas pumps or biscuits behaved liked people and wondered, ?How do they do that, then you’ve experienced the magic of 3D worlds generated by a computer. 3D in computers began as a way to represent automotive designs and illustrate the construction of molecules. 3D graphics use evolved to visualizations of simulated data and artistic representations of imaginary worlds. In order to overcome the processing limitations of the computer, graphics had to exploit the characteristics of the eye and brain, and develop visual tricks to simulate realism. The goal is to create graphics images that will overcome the visual cues that cause disbelief and tell the viewer this is not real. Thousands of people over thousands of years have developed the building blocks and made the discoveries in mathematics and science to make such 3D magic possible, andThe History of Visual Magic in Computers is dedicated to all of them and tells a little of their story. It traces the earliest understanding of 3D and then foundational mathematics to explain and construct 3D; from mechanical computers up to today’s tablets. Several of the amazing computer graphics algorithms and tricks came of periods where eruptions of new ideas and techniques seem to occur all at once. Applications emerged as the fundamentals of how to draw lines and create realistic images were better understood, leading to hardware 3D controllers that drive the display all the way to stereovision and virtual reality.

�Schools of Tomorrow�, Schools of Today: What Happened to Progressive Education (History of Schools and Schooling, V. 8)


�Schools of Tomorrow,� Schools of Today documents some of the child-centered progressive schools founded in the first half of the twentieth century and provides histories of some more contemporary examples of progressive practices. Part I discusses seven progressive schools founded in the first part of the twentieth century (Francis W. Parker; Organic; Park; City and Country; Lincoln; Dalton; Arthurdale), tracing them from their beginnings to the present, or until their regrettable demises. Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

Being their first child he was naturally the joy of their hearts. Later, another baby boy followed. In 1862 William H. Bonney shook the dust of New York City from his shoes and emigrated to Coffeeville, Kansas, on the northern border of the Indian Territory, with his little family. Soon after settling down in Coffeeville, Mr. Bonney died. Then the young widow moved to the Territory of Colorado, where she married a Mr. Antrim.

A History of England (Classic Reprint)

A History of England (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from A History of England A preface to a Fifth Volume may seem superfluous, yet a few words are wanted to introduce and perhaps excuse the appearance of a book treating of events of such very recent date. So close is the connection binding the events of history that it is always difficult to make a choice (which must in any case be arbitrary) of stopping-places to form what it is usual to call the beginnings or endings of periods. In writing contemporaneous history, the difficulty is accentuated by the very obvious character of this continuity. It is plain that the year 1880 cannot in any sense be regarded as such a stopping-place: the facts are incomplete, the stream of political opinion continues unchecked, and the prominent figures arc the same both before and after. On the other hand, the death of Queen Victoria seems to afford an opportunity of more than usual fitness for bringing the story of the fortunes of Great Britain to a conclusion. Not only is the close of the long reign and the death of a great sovereign in itself something of an era, it so happens that in this case it synchronizes with a real change of scene. The new reign has begun with different actors on the stage, and different objects of public interest. The old generation of statesmen has passed away. The grave has closed over the fiery will and enthralling eloquence of Air. Gladstone, and the cool sagacity and experience of Lord Salisbury. Lord Goschen, Sir William Harcourt, and Air. John Morley have withdrawn from the leadership of parties; (he high offices of State are filled by comparatively young men.

Henry VIII and History

Henry VIII and History


Henry VIII remains the most iconic and controversial of all English Kings. For over four-hundred years he has been lauded, reviled and mocked, but rarely ignored. In his many guises – model Renaissance prince, Defender of the Faith, rapacious plunderer of the Church, obese Bluebeard- he has featured in numerous works of fact and faction, in books, magazines, paintings, theatre, film and television. Yet despite this perennial fascination with Henry the man and monarch, there has been little comprehensive exploration of his historiographic legacy. Therefore scholars will welcome this collection, which provides a systematic survey of Henry’s reputation from his own age through to the present. Divided into three sections, the volume begins with an examination of Henry’s reputation in the period between his death and the outbreak of the English Civil War, a time that was to create many of the tropes that would dominate his historical legacy. The second section deals with the further evolution of his reputation, from the Restoration to Edwardian era, a time when Catholic commentators and women writers began moving into the mainstream of English print culture. The final section covers the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, which witnessed an explosion of representations of Henry, both in print and on screen. Taken together these studies, by a distinguished group of international scholars, offer a lively and engaging overview of how Henry’s reputation has been used, abused and manipulated in both academia and popular culture since the sixteenth century. They provide intriguing insights into how he has been reinvented at different times to reflect the cultural, political and religious demands of the moment; sometimes as hero, sometimes as villain, but always as an unmistakable and iconic figure in the historical landscape.

Biography of a Tenement House in New York City: An Architectural History of 97 Orchard Street

Biography of a Tenement House in New York City: An Architectural History of 97 Orchard Street


I trace my ancestry back to the Mayflower,” writes Andrew S. Dolkart. “Not to the legendary ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620, but to the more prosaic tenement on the southeast corner of East Broadway and Clinton Street named the Mayflower, where my father was born in 1914 to Russian-Jewish immigrants.” For Dolkart, his father’s experience of being raised in a tenement became a metaphor for the life that was afforded countless immigrant children growing up in Lower Manhattan during the past century. In this revised edition of his classic book, Dolkart presents for us a precise and informative biography of a typical tenement house in New York City that became, in 1988, the site for the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. The author documents, analyzes, and interprets the architectural and social history of this building at 97 Orchard Street, beginning in the 1860s when it was erected, moving on to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries when the neighborhood started to change, and concluding in the present day as the building is reincarnated as the museum. This edition includes new research on the basement storefronts (specifically the Schneider saloon and the kosher butcher), the backyard privies and their reconstruction, and the new Irish Moore apartment. “Biography of a Tenement House in New York City “is a lasting tribute to the legacy of immigrants and their children, who were part of the transformation of New York City and the fabric of everyday American urban life.

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain

The Thirties: An Intimate History of Britain


Acclaimed author of ‘Wartime’, Juliet Gardiner, brings to life the long neglected decade of the twentieth century – the 1930s. J.B. Priestley famously described the ‘three Englands’ he saw in the 1930s: Old England, nineteenth-century England and the new, post-war England. Thirties Britain was, indeed, a land of contrasts, at once a nation rendered hopeless by the Depression, unemployment and international tensions, yet also a place of complacent suburban home-owners with a baby Austin in every garage. Now Juliet Gardiner, acclaimed author of the award-winning Wartime, provides a fresh perspective on that restless, uncertain, ambitious decade, bringing the complex experience of thirties Britain alive through newspapers, magazines, memoirs, letters and diaries. Gardiner captures the essence of a people part-mesmerised by ‘modernism’ in architecture, art and the proliferation of ‘dream palaces’, by the cult of fitness and fresh air, the obsession with speed, the growth and regimentation of leisure, the democratisation of the countryside, the celebration of elegance, glamour and sensation. Yet, at the same time, this was a nation imbued with a pervasive awareness of loss – of Britain’s influence in the world, of accepted political, social and cultural signposts, and finally of peace itself.

From Marilyn Monroe to Madonna, Here’s a Brief History of the All-American Denim Jacket

If jeans are as American as apple pie, then denim jackets are the vanilla ice cream on top: cool, classic, and always appealing. And while Proenza Schouler, Valentino, and Rachel Comey may have all sent their own trendy iterations down the fall 2015 runways, the denim jacket had already been trending for, oh, just 130 years or so.

The first denim jacket was created circa 1880 by denim legend and Levi’s founder Levi Strauss. Strauss is credited with designing the first-ever jeans in 1870 as a durable, breathable utility garment for cowboys, railroad engineers, and miners to wear during the gold rush out West. Soon after the runaway success of jeans, he gave the world a top to match and dubbed it the Triple Pleat Blouse.

We spoke with Tracey Panek, a historian at Levi Strauss & Co., who said that the denim jackets were ideal for laborers. “Our denim jacket was incredibly durable for various types of manual labor,” Panek said. “The horizontal seams holding down the pleats could be removed to give the wearer extra room.”

While the Levi’s denim jacket has evolved since then, the functionality and innate coolness of the piece has earned it the status as an all-American rebel’s outerwear of choice. “By the ’50s, wearing denim was often associated with juvenile delinquency,” Panek said. “Jeans were even banned in some schools, and denim became the nonconformists’ uniform of choice.” From James Dean’s iconic denim-jacket clad character in Rebel Without a Cause in the ’50s to Rihanna’s deconstructed versions today, jean jackets buck convention, express individuality, and epitomize anti-establishment cool.

Here’s a timeline of denim jackets that will inspire you to pull yours out right now.

Reinterpreting Modern Culture: An Introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche’s Philosophy (Purdue University Press Series in the History of Philosophy)

Reinterpreting Modern Culture: An Introduction to Friedrich Nietzsche’s Philosophy (Purdue University Press Series in the History of Philosophy)


New – Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) presents himself several times as a physician of culture. He considers it his task to make a diagnosis of the culture of his age, to point to the latent or patent diseases, but also to the possibilities to overcome them. His diagnosis, prognosis, and prescriptions implied an overcoming of traditional interpretation of what is going on in the main domains of culture: knowledge, morality, religion, and art. This book presents Nietzsche’s thoughts on knowledge

John Leguizamo Says High School History Makes Latino Students Feel ‘Invisible’

Latino contributions to U.S. history remain largely absent from high school history books, and John Leguizamo is doing something about it.

The 51-year-old actor and comedian sat down with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski Tuesday to discuss his upcoming film “American Ultra” and his upcoming comedy project “Latin History for Dummies.”

Over the years, Leguizamo has had success with autobiographical one-man shows like “Freak” and “Ghetto Klown,” in which he details his life experiences as a Latino growing up in the U.S. These projects, he told HuffPost Live, arose partly because he felt Latinos were underrepresented in the media.

“It was like, I’m watching TV and I’m watching movies and listening to radio and we’re invisible,” Leguizamo said. “I was like, where are all the Latin people that I hang out with and goof with all day and talk about politics and talk about art?… So I started writing my own stuff, I wanted to see my people the way I saw them.”

On the topic of Latino visibility, the comedian showed particular concern for the absence of Latinos in U.S. history education — despite research that shows Latino students exposed to ethnic studies perform better in school. 

“Just imagine, you’re a white kid and all of a sudden everybody’s Latin and everything they’re teaching you is Latin and you don’t hear anything about yourself or about your contributions,” Leguizamo said. “You don’t know hear about George Washington, you don’t hear about Thomas Jefferson and you feel like you haven’t contributed anything. How would you feel? How would you think of your future? How would you think of your participation in American culture?”

“You feel like an invisible person screaming in the woods and nobody hears you,” he added. “And it’s really weird and unfair because we had huge contributions.”

Watch Leguizamo discuss Latino contributions to U.S. history above. And watch the full segment below to hear the actor’s thought on who is to blame for the lack of Latinos in film.

The Ten Greatest Stoners in Movie History

2015-07-09-1436481138-3421662-candc

2015 will most likely go down as the year that the once-taboo became respectable, with both gay marriage and marijuana finding legal and public acceptance nationwide. While the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states, the marijuana initiative is having an appropriately slower, but steady climb into legality. That said, we thought we’d take a look at some of cinema’s greatest proponents of the stoner lifestyle, before it all becomes downright conventional.


10. Jeff Spicoli–Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Sean Penn not only became a star with his turn as surfer/stoner Jeff Spicoli in the 1980s’ most iconic teen movie, he established how the stoners of the ’80s differed from their predecessors: while the rebels of the ’60s and ’70s viewed their use of cannabis as a symbol of rebellion, and preferred it to alcohol and the other symbols of their parents’ generation and its decadence, in the ’80s it was all about hedonism, which included drinking and smoking weed in kind. Spicoli’s mantra of “All I need are tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine,” became the motto of all kids raised in the Reagan Era.


9. Captain America (aka Wyatt) and Billy–Easy Rider (1969)

If the Beatles and Bob Dylan helped bring stoner culture into the Baby Boomers’ lexicon, Easy Rider was the movie that cemented stonerism as a necessary component of the counterculture. This was driven home in the now-classic scene where Wyatt and Billy (Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper) get country lawyer George Hanson (Jack Nicholson, in his star-making role) high for the first time (“Marijuana! Is that what that is?”), followed by George/Jack’s brilliantly stony monologue about how aliens are living and breeding among us.


8. Dave “Woody” Wooderson–Dazed and Confused (1993)

Matthew McConaughey’s character of perpetual teenager Woody Wooderson in director Richard Linklater’s homage to life in suburban Austin, TX., circa 1976, is never given a specific age, but his status as a weed connoisseur and an impressive lexicon of meme-worthy quotes (“Alright, alright, alright.” “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” And the pièce de résistance: “Wooderson: Say, man, you got a joint? Mitch: No, not on me, man. Wooderson: It’d be a lot cooler if you did.”) make his status as an all-time stoner champ indisputable.


7. Harold and Kumar–Harold and Kumar Trilogy (2004, 2008, 2011)

Harold and Kumar brought stonerism into the 21st century with aplomb, style and epic cases of the munchies. What began as a simple odyssey to fuel their Maryjane-induced hunger pangs, led to an epic, Candide-like tale to such exotic locales at Guantanamo, Radio City Music Hall, KKK rallies, and smoking up with such disparate characters as Santa Claus, George W. Bush and a persona-smashing incarnation of Neil Patrick Harris.


8. Sgt. Elias–Platoon (1986)

Oliver Stone’s Oscar-sweeper told a story of the Vietnam War from the grunt’s POV. One of the first things that Private Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen) sees when he arrives at his platoon’s camp is that the soldiers are clearly divided into two groups: the ultra-right wing boozers (led by psycho Sgt. Barnes, played to perfection by Tom Berenger) and the progressive rock & roll loving stoners, led by the philosophical Sgt. Elias (Willem Dafoe). I think most people can agree that there was nothing fun about the Vietnam War and the men who fought it were treated with equal contempt by the Vietnamese people and their fellow Americans upon returning home, one of the darkest chapters in our country’s history. That said, if you had to be there, deciding which camp you would have belonged to is one hell of a litmus test.


7. Ivan Martin–The Harder They Come (1972)

Perry Henzell’s story of country lad Ivan Martin (Reggae great Jimmy Cliff) who travels to big city Kingston with dreams of musical stardom is credited for single-handedly popularizing Reggae music and culture in the U.S. Of course as it deals with Rastafarian culture and people, there are epic amounts of ganja featured in this remarkable film, which has Ivan being pulled in opposite directions by crooked record producers and drug dealers, forcing him to become a criminal to survive. In the end, even the kind buds indigenous to Jamaica’s soil can’t change Ivan’s fate, but until then, what a ride!


6. Floyd–True Romance (1993)

A box office disappointment upon release that became a classic in retrospect, True Romance features a script by pre-Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino and a cast of actors who became a who’s-who of stars as the 1990s progressed. No one fit this bill more than Brad Pitt, whose scene-stealing supporting turn as Floyd, the uber-stoner roommate of Michael Rappaport’s Dick Ritchie, remains the film’s most memorable character, in spite of being surrounded with dozens of colorful turns by a dream cast. In fact, one could argue that Floyd’s passive stonerism is the only thing that saves him from becoming another notch on the gunbelt of ruthless mafia hitmen who lay waste to everyone else in their wake. “You guys wanna…smoke a bowl?”


5. Professor Jennings–Animal House (1978)

Donald Sutherland does a memorable loopy turn as stony college professor who turns on a few of his students one night in 1962. Tom Hulce’s monologue about universes inside fingernails remains one of the most authentic stony, pseud-intellectual monologues ever written. Sutherland’s gentle, amused demeanor throughout is priceless.


4. Carl Spackler–Caddyshack (1980)

Bill Murray’s left-of-center groundskeeper Carl is one of cinema’s most memorable oddballs, whether he’s chipping away a freshly-planted flower bed with fantasies of PGA glory, hunting terrorist gophers with plastic explosives or sharing his own strain of weed with Bushwood Country Club stalwart Ty Webb (Chevy Chase), explaining “This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.” The classic scene between Murray and Chase was, apparently, entirely improvised on the spot. We are all the luckier for it.


3. The Dude–The Big Lebowski (1998)

Jeff Bridges’ “The Dude” is a prototypical sixties leftover who finds himself stuck in the middle of a 1990s film noir nightmare, in the Coen Brothers’ brilliant, unique satire. When the Dude isn’t swilling his signature White Russian cocktails, weed is his go-to vice of choice, which he smokes with gusto. Our favorite exchange: “Blond Treehorn Thug: [holding up a bowling ball] What the fuck is this? The Dude: Obviously you’re not a golfer.” Through it all, The Dude abides.


2. Hunter S. Thompson–Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)

Director Terry Gilliam remains the only filmmaker to bring Hunter S. Thompson’s unique brand of mad brilliance to the screen with success, and what a dizzying, psychedelic masterpiece it is. Adapted from Thompson’s memoir (as his alter ego, Raoul Duke, played by Johnny Depp) detailing a cross-country road trip with attorney/comrade Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) and their search for “The American Dream,” fueled by a pharmacy of drugs and alcohol in the trunk of Duke’s car, The Red Shark. A book and a film that almost defy description, suffice to say that, according to most devoted stoners and practitioners of extreme behavior/lifestyles, no other film captures the energy, attitudes and visions of drug use better.


1. Pedro and “Man” (aka Cheech & Chong) – Up in Smoke (1978)

The most joyful depiction of stoner lifestyle ever committed to celluloid, Cheech & Chong popularized stoner humor and culture in a series of top-selling records during the 1970s, with this 1978 ode to taking it easy being their pinnacle. The plot, such as it is, has the boys unwittingly driving a van made of weed from L.A. to Mexico, with the Fascistic narc Sgt. Stedenko (Stacy Keach, hilarious) hot on their trail. Our favorite moment, which was a tough one to choose, is posted above.

The History Of Sneakers In High Fashion In One Short Minute

The rise of “Normcore” has proven that comfort is king, even when it comes to fashion. Any sneaker enthusiast will tell you, that sentiment has rung true long before the days of trendy Birkenstocks and overalls.

A new exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum titled “The Rise Of Sneaker Culture,” which runs from July 10-Oct. 4, 2015, features about 150 sneakers and examines the role the shoe has played in our society. “The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition to explore the complex social history and cultural significance of the footwear now worn by billions of people throughout the world,” the museum said in a release.

In honor of the new exhibit, CNN released “A Brief History Of High Fashion Kicks” Wednesday. The awesome video provides an overview of sneakers involvement in fashion and is a pretty rad history lesson, too.

Toxophilus -The School of Shooting (History of Archery Series)

Toxophilus -The School of Shooting (History of Archery Series)


Toxophilus -The School Of Shooting (History of Archery Series) Roger Ascham This work comprises of two books combined together: The First Book of the School of Shooting and The Second Book of the School of Shooting. They are written in the form of a dialogue between Toxophilus ‘A lover of the bow’ and Philogus ‘A lover of learning’. In the discussion Toxophilus justifies his love of archery as a pastime, puts forward his reasons for retaining the bow as a weapon of war instead of the newly favoured hand gun, and he gives practical instructions on the technique of shooting in the bow.

Shaping the Day: A History of Timekeeping in England and Wales 1300-1800

Shaping the Day: A History of Timekeeping in England and Wales 1300-1800


Timekeeping is an essential activity in the modern world, and we take it for granted that our lives our shaped by the hours of the day. Yet what seems so ordinary today is actually the extraordinary outcome of centuries of technical innovation and circulation of ideas about time.

Shaping the Day is a pathbreaking study of the practice of timekeeping in England and Wales between 1300 and 1800. Drawing on many unique historical sources, ranging from personal diaries to housekeeping manuals, Paul Glennie and Nigel Thrift illustrate how a particular kind of common sense about
time came into being, and how it developed during this period.

Many remarkable figures make their appearance, ranging from the well-known, such as Edmund Halley, Samuel Pepys, and John Harrison, who solved the problem of longitude, to less familiar characters, including sailors, gamblers, and burglars.

Overturning many common perceptions of the past-for example, that clock time and the industrial revolution were intimately related-this unique historical study will engage all readers interested in how ''telling the time'' has come to dominate our way of life.

Techniques of Event History Modeling

Techniques of Event History Modeling


Including new developments and publications which have appeared since the publication of the first edition in 1995, this second edition: *gives a comprehensive introductory account of event history modeling techniques and their use in applied research in economics and the social sciences; *demonstrates that event history modeling is a major step forward in causal analysis. To do so the authors show that event history models employ the time-path of changes in states and relate changes in causal variables in the past to changes in discrete outcomes in the future; and *introduces the reader to the computer program Transition Data Analysis (TDA). This software estimates the sort of models most frequently used with longitudinal data, in particular, discrete-time and continuous-time event history data. Techniques of Event History Modeling can serve as a student textbook in the fields of statistics, economics, the social sciences, psychology, and the political sciences. It can also be used as a reference for scientists in all fields of research.

Twentieth Century History For Dummies

Twentieth Century History For Dummies


The 20th Century brought revolutionary changes to our world and our lives: the human population of the world tripled, space travel became reality, two world wars and a host of other conflicts were fought, and huge advances in science, technology and communication resulted in the globalised world we know today. Enormous steps were made in wiping out widespread discrimination, from the women’s suffrage movement leading to women’s right to vote in western countries, to the civil rights movement in the US challenging racial segregation. The political landscape has provided lots of excitement, with charismatic and scandalous presidents in the White House, the first female prime minister in the UK, dictators working to various manifestoes across the world, the Middle East conflict and the changing balance of political and economic “superpowers”. Technological advances have resulted in nigh on universal adoption and dependence on automobiles, computers, mobiles and other wireless technology. The exponential rate at which technology is evolving is one of the variables that make the twentieth century so fascinating. All this and much, much more happened in a mere one hundred years – where did we find the time to do so much? Twentieth Century History For Dummies tells all.

The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party

The Republicans: A History of the Grand Old Party


Lewis L. Gould’s 2003 history of the Republican Party was a fast-paced account of Republican fortunes. The Republicans won praise for its even-handed, incisive analysis of Republican history, drawing on Gould’s deep knowledge of the evolution of national political history and acute feel for the interplay of personalities and ideology. In this revised and updated edition, Gould extends this history, adding a new chapter on the George W. Bush presidency, the election of 2008, and the response of the Grand Old Party to Barack Obama. His narrative covers such contemporary figures as Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and John McCain, as well as forgotten Republican leaders including James G. Blaine, Mark Hanna, Wendell Willkie, and Robert A. Taft. Contending that the historic Republican skepticism about the legitimacy of the Democratic Party has shaped American politics since the Civil War, Gould argues that the persistent flaw in the relations between the two parties has led the nation to the current crisis of stalemate and partisan bitterness. No other account of Republican history is as up-to-date, crammed with fascinating information, and ready to serve as an informed guide to today’s partisan warfare. Lay readers and political junkies alike seeking the best book on Republican history will find what they are looking for in Gould’s comprehensive volume.

Victorian Wedding Dress In The United States: A History Through Paper Dolls

Victorian Wedding Dress In The United States: A History Through Paper Dolls


The American obsession with weddings and wedding gowns is evident at least as early as 1850, when the March issue of Godey’s Lady’s Book included a colored plate in its feature on bridal dress. Yet brides who feed the nation’s current obsession to the tune of more than 0 billion annually may be astonished to learn how much things have changed. Fashion illustrator Norma Lu Meehan and costume curator Mei Campbell draw upon collections at the Northern Indiana Center for History and the Museum of Texas Tech University to illuminate the evolution of wedding dress in the United States from 1859 to 1899. This exquisitely illustrated work situates the white wedding dress and current perceptions of tradition within a surprisingly varied and colorful history.FROM THE BOOKWhen Americans think of Victorian wedding dress . . . we recall antique photographs and tintypes, possibly family heirlooms or those we’ve seen in museums. Though these images, like the gowns on these pages, certainly do not reflect the breadth of American cultural custom and practice, even in that era, they do reveal how much of mainstream America—particularly a rising middle class—saw itself and how it aspired to be seen. We can begin to understand how an increasingly affluent America became smitten with a British queen and with a fashion phenomenon that over the next century would become an economic and cultural force beyond imagining.

Boom: 100 Years of Fashion History in Under 3 Minutes

Check this out: The last century of Western fashion and women’s style has been neatly condensed in a quickie video that’ll take you less than three minutes to watch. Starting in 1915, you’ll go through decade by decade to see the full costume a lady of that era might have worn (prepare for more than a few Downton Abbey flashbacks at the beginning).

The retro looks are fascinating, but there’s also something super interesting about seeing the decades we all participated in given the same anthropological treatment. Imagining a museum of the future where a ’90s floral mini is displayed near a wasp-waisted dress accessorized with a parasol? Trippy.
