Unreleased 2nd Generation Pokemon Found in 20 Year-Old Demo

Multiple unreleased 2nd generation Pokemon have been discovered, including never-used baby forms and evolutions, different starter Pokemon, and other entirely abandoned concepts.

A recently uploaded ROM of the 1997 Nintendo Spaceworld demo for Pokemon Gold and Silver has been unpacked by fans at The Cutting Room Floor. The demo pre-dates the final version of the game by two years – and a lot seems to have changed in that time.

Most notable are the Pokemon themselves. For instance, the Cyndaquil and Totodile starters and their evolutions didn’t exist at this point – instead, they were Flambear and Cruz:

A New Generation at the House of Bijan Eyes $1B Valuation

It’s a balancing act and a heavy responsibility resting on the shoulders of 26-year-old Nicolas Bijan.
It’s his family’s name on the building and a legacy left in place by his late father, Bijan Pakzad, which created a boutique business that’s worked with some of the most powerful players across industries including Prince Charles, Carlos Slim, Giorgio Armani and Tom Ford.
The upscale men’s retailer, which sells everything from custom men’s suits to diamond-encrusted watches and has car collaborations with Bugatti and Rolls-Royce, now aims to evolve the business in a way that resonates with a new generation of clients.
The company recently unveiled an outpost at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills and is set to open a store at the Wynn in Las Vegas next year. The younger Bijan also has his eye on international growth, but tempers those aspirations with not wanting to expand too quickly. If all goes according to plan, Bijan estimates that by the time the business gets to five doors, it will be generating $ 250 million in revenue at a valuation of $ 1 billion.
It’s ambitious but when the selling floor includes $ 1,200 jackets and limited-edition handbags (a category Bijan only recently got into) starting at $ 65,000,

The Brooklyn Print Studio Fostering a New Generation of Indie T-Shirt Brands

Alex Dondero is dazed and bewildered. The founder of Lqqk Studio — better accustomed to Brooklyn chill — has spent the past 12 hours displaced in Midtown, Manhattan. His print shop has temporarily taken up residence at a high-profile fashion brand based in the Garment District prepping and printing runway samples in the weeks leading up to New York Fashion Week. He phones in at 11 p.m. on the drive home to Bedford-Stuyvesant, remarking, somewhat trancelike, between tollbooths.
This Midtown studio residency — for which Dondero has signed a nondisclosure — is just the latest notch in Lqqk’s ascent. A commercial printing studio, Lqqk (pronounced: “Look”) also produces its own label known for handprinted T-shirts, hats, knapsacks and patterned outerwear that typically sell out within 48 hours of release.
The past year has seen Lqqk lend its distinctly minimal, off-kilter aesthetic to a suite of new partners. The studio has collaborated with Japanese men’s wear brand N. Hoolywood, opened new wholesale channels and devised a sneaker and apparel collaboration with Vans’ tier-one label, Vault, due this spring.
Commercial jobs are but a spoke in Dondero’s wheel. As such, Dondero has used the studio to spin a creative web and establish a Lqqk network

Levy made it clear that he isn’t interested in simply doing a straight-up adaptation of the games – citing his experience of “bad” or simply “decent but unsuccessful” video game adaptations – and says that he and Tom Holland are both approaching the film from the same angle.

How Heath Ledger’s Legacy Is Nurturing the Next Generation of Dreamers

Nine years after Heath Ledger’s death, members of his inner circle share memories of his zest for life and his troubled final days. Subscribe now for the emotional new details and never-before-seen photos — only in PEOPLE.

Heath Ledger‘s legacy is helping aspiring Aussie actors get a start in Hollywood.

In partnership with his family and high-profile friends, the organization Australians in Film created the Heath Ledger Scholarship, which aims to help young actors make the difficult transition to Hollywood — just like the late Australian actor did.

“It’s designed to help Australian actors make their international career leap, sort of like a network to establish them in Hollywood and provide them with support and assistance,” Ledger’s sister Kate tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. “From industry introduction to managing finances to providing airfares back and forth to Australia, we aim to provide the complete transitional package.”

The scholarship has been awarded annually since 2009, and winners have included Fifty Shades Darker‘s Bella Heathcote and James Mackay, who appeared in Hacksaw Ridge and can be seen in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Ledger is the focus the new Spike TV documentary I Am Heath Ledger (set to premiere on Spike TV on May 17 following its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 23), which provides a revealing glimpse of the star including his early days as an actor. Like those his scholarship aims to help, Ledger himself made the leap from Australia to California in 1998 after moving from his hometown of Perth to Sydney when he was 17.

Courtesy Ledger Estate

When his career took off in 1999 following the sleeper smash 10 Things I Hate About You, the actor made sure to help out other Aussies coming up behind him by letting them crash at his house — even if he didn’t know them that well.

“I think he knew how hard it was himself because when he first moved over, he didn’t have anything,” Kate says. “It’s such a tough existence when you have nothing and you have to start from the beginning. Hollywood is big and scary and it is a hard thing to crack.”

For more on Heath Ledger, including the revealing new documentary about his life and legacy, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Now in its ninth year, the scholarship is appointed by a panel of high-profile judges who review hundreds of submissions. This year’s judges include Naomi Watts, Ryan Murphy and Gary Oldman, while past judges have included Colin Farrell, Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Vince Vaughn.

It includes a seven-day trip to California, $ 16,000 for expenses like rent, a living allowance and transportation, and even acting classes. Benefactors for the scholarship include the Ledger family, Michelle Williams, Naomi Watts, Hugh Jackman, Rose Byrne, Vince Vaughn, Liam Hemsworth, Baz Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Through the scholarship, its judges and benefactors hope to nurture Australian actors whose talents can burn as brightly as the star who inspired it.

“Sometimes people break through because of one thing, whether it’s good looks or talent or timing or who knows? But he sort of had everything down,” Watts says in I Am Heath Ledger. “One of the most powerful things for an actor, particularly for a man, is their voice and their physicality and their level of masculinity, and he had all of those things in spades.”

Applications for the 2017 edition are open now.

The ‘Arthur’ Generation Will Need To Save America

The first lady of the United States gave Marc Brown a call after the publication of his popular 1991 children’s book, Arthur Meets the President.

Barbara Bush, wife of President George H.W. Bush and creator of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, wanted to include the democracy-themed story ― which features an aardvark family going to Washington D.C. ― in the National Archives. Brown, still half-a-decade away from premiering the first episode of his animated “Arthur” television series, was happy to help. And over the next few years, the author joined Bush’s literary initiatives by attending various events and meeting families across the country.

When “Arthur” the TV show, which launched in 1996, became a success during the Bill Clinton administration, the original President book became an animated segment where Arthur Read’s family met an amiable Clinton in the White House. They all shared a pizza.

As the second Bush administration took power and Laura Bush revived Barbara’s literary initiative in the White House, Brown again joined the effort.

Part of this experience involved taking shots of vodka in Russia with Vladimir Putin.

“Laura Bush invited me to go to Russia with her and represent the country at the first children’s book festival that then Mrs. Putin was trying to replicate what Laura was doing in Washington,” Brown told The Huffington Post in a rare interview about the creation of his beloved aardvark character.

“And so that was very interesting to go over there and actually have dinner with President Putin … He made a big entrance. As I remember it, we were in the Kremlin and the entire room was covered in gold leaf. There were first ladies from all over the world and each one would give a toast. We all had to drink vodka shots after each toast and so things were getting a little fuzzy.”

A representative for Laura Bush relayed the details to her for HuffPost and the former first lady apparently recalled the incident with fondness and laughter.

The second Bush administration eventually ended, and the Obamas entered the White House. The animated “Arthur” series remained on PBS and continued to be as popular as ever. The show introduced a lovable Obama character, of course. 

“Arthur” has always been a bipartisan story for kids all over and across America ― teaching morals of love, friendship and acceptance any parent could get behind. And so the rise of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States has created a conundrum for the show, which celebrates 20 years on the air this year.

“I am terrified that this maniac could actually become a leader of this country,” Brown told HuffPost before Election Day.

Over the course of 2016, Brown spent his free time drawing cartoons depicting Trump as the emperor with no clothes. In one cartoon Brown sent to HuffPost, a naked Donald wears a crown while sitting atop a gold throne.

He’s on a cellphone talking to Putin and says, “Vladdy, it’s me, Donny. Got a little cash flow problem over here …” Another depicts a traditional Christian church where the steeple’s cross has been changed to a golden “T.”

“With all the work that I have done and invested with children being successful …” said Brown, “I worry about what would happen with children.”

It remains unclear whether this will be the first presidential administration during the history of “Arthur” that has no involvement with the program. HuffPost tried following up with Brown after the election, but did not get a response.

Unlike the popular children’s show “Sesame Street,” which teaches basic fundamentals such as the ABCs and counting, “Arthur” is geared toward a demographic that is just starting to form opinions about the world and is searching for a way to live. Similarly, “Arthur” sets itself apart from the Disney and Nickelodeon shows that tend to favor pure (typically slapstick) comedy over substantial ideas about morality and how to be.

The first lines of the now iconic theme song told young viewers, “Everyday when you’re walking down the street / Everybody that you meet / Has an original point of view.” A song from the show that became almost equally as recognizable touted the joys of having a library card. “Arthur” constantly pushed its audience to go explore and then report the cool things they found out to strangers who could soon become friends.

Brown’s creation was, and still is, overtly pro-education and pro-inclusivity.

Arthur and his friends are animals of all shapes and colors because Brown cared deeply about the ills of stereotyping people. “I wanted all kids to be able to relate to any of the characters,” said Brown. 

Just recently, while guest-teaching a class of college students at the University of Wisconsin, a student asked Brown if the character Francine is gay. “You know, I thought about it, I said, ‘Well, she could be, of course she could be,’” explained Brown. “And so they kind of liked the idea that Francine could be gay.”

Despite these super-sized doses of positivity and teaching moments, “Arthur” has still found a way to resonate with restless kids. Amid the lessons, the series has referenced shows such as “South Park” and “Beavis and Butt-Head,” as well as a notable episode-long cameo from the Backstreet Boys at the height of their fame. “It was fun,” A.J. McLean of the boy band told HuffPost. “It was weird to see yourself as an aardvark.”

The show knew exactly what it had to do to both win at the ratings game and achieve its goal of truly affecting children. “Collectively, what we wanted to do with the show was to use animation and television ― two very seductive mediums ― to engage kids and make them want to read,” said Brown.

“That was this underlying agenda, but also, we were hoping that we could get parents and caregivers wanting to watch the show with kids so there might be conversations that we could start between them … you [as a parent] can share your values, it’s such an opportunity.”

This cross-generational appeal of the show has led some viewers to return to “Arthur” as grown-ups.

Earlier this year, countless memes based on stills from the animated show notably propagated online. Fans would take a screenshot from “Arthur” and write their own dialogue and jokes for the characters.

A parody of this “Arthur” meme phenomenon even found its way on the new and critically-acclaimed FX show “Atlanta.” 

Brown is well aware of these memes, which had fans sharing a certain image of Arthur’s fist and jokingly questioning why the animal characters would wear headphones on the sides of their heads rather than their actual ears.

Arthur’s glasses also notably just float on his head without any support.

“I’m really having such a good time watching Arthur and all his friends pop up on BuzzFeed all the time,” said Brown. “It’s very interesting that I’ve been able to sustain these characters through an entire generation, a little longer actually … 40 years?” 

Despite its longevity, Brown actually struggled for years before his true breakthrough came with the publication of the first book in the Arthur series, Arthur’s Nose, in 1976. He briefly held a job at a television news station in Erie, Pennsylvania, where his creative ideas weren’t exactly respected. Trying to pitch something nobody had ever done before, Brown came up with an idea to turn the weather person into a weather fairy. In his vision, the weather fairy would descend into the scene via a swing and Brown himself would hide in a wishing well to help talk about the weather. 

“So, there was no reaction from my boss,” Brown recalled. “I was explaining how perhaps it could have a little mechanical squirrel [give the weather fairy] a magic marker to do the weather maps … I finished and left his office and then the next day there was a little pink slip of paper in my mailbox informing me that I was no longer needed,” Brown laughed.

“I think I learned early on that perhaps I needed a career where I was more self-directed.”

The genesis of Arthur came right after Brown lost a teaching job and his son, Tolon, asked for a bedtime story. “I don’t know why, I sometimes think maybe I was thinking alphabetically, and aardvark popped into my head,” said Brown.

This idea that just popped into his head went on to dominate Brown’s life for over four decades and continues to do so today. The prevalence of “Arthur” in his life has come at great reward, but also existential cost.

“I have been frustrated by having such good fortune, to have this wonderful adventure with ‘Arthur,’” explained Brown. “I never ever expected the television show to last as long as it has and PBS shows no sign of it ending anytime soon. But as an artist, personally, I have had to put a lot of things I wanted to do on the back burner ― styles I’ve wanted to experiment with and other kinds of books I’ve wanted to write.”

Brown is clearly proud that he’s gotten to call the shots for so many years and had such success doing so, but it’s also been a sacrifice. Creating a property geared toward educating children doesn’t necessarily earn critical attention from peers and adults, except as a parenting tool.

But our world, now perhaps more than ever, needs more people like Brown. Luckily, he helped raise a generation that continues to share his beliefs of acceptance, curiosity and the will to do what’s right.

We can all dream of becoming president, but if you can even influence the person that eventually does take over that job ― and for the better ― well that’s a pretty amazing place to start. 

As Brown put it …

“Kids are my boss and, you know, I really like my job.”

 

Listen below to Chance the Rapper’s cover of the “Arthur” theme song. “Ohhhh, I love his version,” Brown said of the musician’s song. “I was just blown away, it was so powerful and beautiful and dreamy.”

The Greatest Generation

The Greatest Generation


In the spring of 1984, I went to the northwest of France, to Normandy, to prepare an NBC documentary on the fortieth anniversary of D-Day, the massive and daring Allied invasion of Europe that marked the beginning of the end of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. There, I underwent a life-changing experience. As I walked the beaches with the American veterans who had returned for this anniversary, men in their sixties and seventies, and listened to their stories, I was deeply moved and profoundly grateful for all they had done. Ten years later, I returned to Normandy for the fiftieth anniversary of the invasion, and by then I had come to understand what this generation of Americans meant to history. It is, I believe, the greatest generation any society has ever produced.” In this superb book, Tom Brokaw goes out into America, to tell through the stories of individual men and women the story of a generation, America’s citizen heroes and heroines who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War and went on to build modern America. This generation was united not only by a common purpose, but also by common values-duty, honor, economy, courage, service, love of family and country, and, above all, responsibility for oneself. In this book, you will meet people whose everyday lives reveal how a generation persevered through war, and were trained by it, and then went on to create interesting and useful lives and the America we have today. “At a time in their lives when their days and nights should have been filled with innocent adventure, love, and the lessons of the workaday world, they were fighting in the most primitive conditions possible across the bloodied landscape of France, Belgium, Italy, Austria, and the coral islands of the Pacific. They answered the call to save the world from the two most powerful and ruthless military machines ever assembled, instruments of conquest in the hands of fascist maniacs. They faced great odds and a late start, b.

Generation A.D.D.: Natural Solutions for Breaking the Prescription Addictions


Ritalin is classified as a Schedule II narcotic-along with heroin and cocaine-and it’s a compound that is given to children to drug them, to keep them under control, because parents and teachers feel they can’t go into the territory of actually learning how to help kids live better lives. It’s a crime against children. – Peter Breggin, M.D., author of Toxic Psychiatry and The Ritalin Fact Book �Six million children in the U.S. are currently prescribed Ritalin or other drugs to reduce the symptoms of ADD/ADHD, without a thorough examination of the causes. This book was inspired by Dr. Papa’s distress about our country’s abuse of pharmaceuticals as first-line therapy for a disease that according to many medical authorities is a fiction. Dr. Papa’s 20 years of work with children and parents affected by ADD/ADHD, have shown that natural approaches greatly reduce symptoms of ADD/ADHD, in some cases eliminating them entirely. In this confronting, solution-oriented book, Dr. Michael Papa urges us to explore and understand the lifestyle-related symptoms and underlying causes of ADD/ADHD, but also to choose natural solutions first. He states: It is essential that we break free from this drugging epidemic that is robbing our younger generations of their health and livelihood; it is our obligation as a society. “Dr. Papa’s book is a breath of fresh air for parents and individuals who have been suffering the consequences of dangerous drugs with nume

5 Healthy Habits for the Next Digital Generation

The Internet is a mere 25 years old. Think for a minute on how far we’ve come as a society in such a short period of time. Think about how quickly connecting to the Internet has become as casual to our society as the use of electricity. If you want proof of our deep dependency on Wi-Fi, just go to the closest coffee shop, ask them to unplug the Internet for 10 minutes, and watch the panic unfold.

In many cases, our online lives have become habits. When it comes to social networking, the little things we post online have an effect on how we behave towards one another in the real world. While there are still many trolling the Internet, research finds that online trends are creating kinder, gentler users.

Keeping these trends comes with utilizing TECH that does exactly what it spells…

Teach
Exceptional
Character
Habits

Taking into consideration that we are creatures of habit, as we teach our children proper behavior in both their digital and real worlds, here are 5 healthy habits that will create a digital generation worthy of praise. What may seem like no brainers, are things we constantly have to remind ourselves of in such a fast-paced world.

Use positive, forward thinking language.

Eliminate the face-to-face aspect of communication and it becomes difficult to read the sentiment or emotion behind what people are actually trying to communicate. We are emotional creatures and respond more sensitively than we might imagine to undertones of online language. Improper judgments in communication can lead to a lot of problems. So, it needs to become a habit to use clear, positive language in our online interactions. With that it needs to become a habit to become positive thinking human beings.

Take information overload to a level of full understanding.

How many emails are you inundated with on a daily basis? How many articles do you sift through when reading the news online? How much of that intake is negative? The information we take in will translate into the way we begin to behave.

We need to make it a habit to control the amount of information we consume by practicing self and social awareness.

Watch Psychologist Sherry Turkle’s TED Talk: Connected, but alone? which asks us: “As we ask more from technology, do we expect less from each other?”

Pay attention to Emotional Intelligence.

Our emotional intelligence gives us the ability to empathize and connect. In the broad sense of social understanding, they say having strong emotional intelligence can be more important than a high IQ.

We can understand and empathize with the negative information we are taking in, but we should also make it a habit to put more focus on what is good in our world, who is good in our world, and how that good can be spread.

Take time to reflect on connection.

Not your Internet connection, your human connection.

If we take this to an existential level and ask what we are doing on this planet, many might say that we exist for each other. We exist to build beautiful and deep connections with one another. Those relationships and collaboration of ideas are what help push the growth of humanity.

So, as we are glued to our phones and devices, we need to make it a habit to recognize what they exist for. They exist to connect society to information, ideas and, at the end of the day, each other. We connect with each other by respecting each other – acknowledging faults of people and systems while choosing to extract the good out of those same people and systems. As we move forward into a spinning world of increasing data, doing so will help us keep our heads on straight.

Pay attention to the reflections of your character.

The problem with online interaction can be its lack of accountability.

Because of the nature of human life, the Internet might always have trolls. So with the existing darkness in our online social world, we need to practice habits of higher integrity in our actions. We need to turn attention to the true meaning of virtue as often as it is turned towards our digital devices.

Our behavior online affects our behavior in the real world and vice versa. Making an impact starts with small habits of positive action.

“Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” — Frank Outlaw

Social Media: The Next Generation of the Salem Witch Trials

Everybody’s heard of the Salem Witch Trails of 1692-1693, right? If you haven’t, you need to get your ass to a library right ASAP. Many history teachers use the Salem Witch Trials to teach their students about the dangers of what can happen when mass hysteria takes over communities. Most of us think when hearing these stories: “this is crazy, it could never happen in modern day.” But, with social media keeping us more connected than ever and Americans getting offended at nearly everything they read — it’s almost as if we’ve forgotten the lessons our history teachers tried to instill in us as children because the Salem Witch Trails happen everyday on our computer, we just don’t realize it.

This past weekend, my Facebook page was sent into a tailspin when someone in Alabama saw a t-shirt with an upside-down American flag on it for sale at a PacSun outlet store. Torch carrying Americans took to social media to express their outrage. With a thirst for blood not yet quenched, (it was a slow Memorial Day news weekend) people took to social media to all-but-destroy PacSun, anyone who wore their clothing and anyone associated with the brand. It was a witch trial of a different sort. I like to call it: “#tshirtgate2015.” Let’s take a look:

Salem 1692: Two girls begin rolling around on the floor, seemingly possessed. When a doctor can’t figure out what’s wrong with them (there is no physical evidence of illness) he jumps to the logical conclusion that witches have been f-ing their shit up. Because…what else could it possibly be?

Modern Day: Someone shopping in an outlet store in Alabama (I could make a joke, but that one just wrote itself), sees a t-shirt with an upside flag on it for sale at a PacSun. This outrages said shopper. They take a picture of it and post it on social media, expressing said outrage. Because there is literally nothing else horrible going on in the world today (black kids getting shot by cops for no reason, global warming, world hunger — no time for that!) the image goes viral. PacSun is ruining America with their upside-down American flag shirt. [An upside down American flag is a signal for extreme danger of life or property.] How could PacSun do this on Memorial Day when we are supposed to be honoring our veterans by getting blackout drunk and having a BBQ? WTF PacSun? WTF, indeed.

Salem 1692: Word spreads that two girls have been overcome by the power of witchcraft and other girls in town begin to say that they have been having similar issues. Soon thereafter, several of the towns most undesirable women (beggars, non-churchgoers and women of rival families of the girls who were original possessed) are arrested for witchcraft.

Modern Day: Word spreads that PacSun is selling a t-shirt with an upside down flag on it via social media and others begin to say that they too are offended by said t-shirt. Soon thereafter, several of the worlds most prestigious media outlets begin covering the story because a t-shirt with an upside-down American flag on it is by far the most disgraceful thing that has ever happened (today) and someone must pay. Meanwhile, somewhere in California the creators of House of Cards are probably chilling being like: “Um, an upside-down American flag has been our shows logo for three years and no one has said word one about it. Way to pick and chose, guys.”

Salem 1692: The women convicted of witchcraft are arrested and tried before a court of law. They really don’t stand a chance because in 1692 America, you can be executed for witchcraft based on the hearsay of a group of teenager girls.

Modern Day: PacSun is put on the stand and the judge, jury and executioner is the general public. They really don’t stand a chance because in 2015 America, you can have your life ruined or entire business crumble based on a biased group of people with loud mouths and nothing better to do.

Salem 1692: Many of the women convicted say they love the Lord, would never dance with the devil and have never practiced witchcraft. It doesn’t matter as the court has little-to-no evidence to convict them, so being practical, they send them to their deaths. On the flip, several of the women convicted throw their hands in air, give up and say “fuck it, I’m a witch.” Thinking they’ll be exonerated if confessing to witchcraft, they lie and say they’re witches. Well played ladies, but it doesn’t work. They too, are executed.

Modern Day: PacSun is put in a difficult situation. Apparently everyone fighting this social media war is either a direct descendent of Betsy Ross, a veteran or American flag aficionado and will not relent. This upside-down flag situation is the worst thing that’s happened in American history. Possibly worse than 9-11. If they don’t apologize, they will look like assholes. But this is 2015 and you’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Soon after #tshirtgate2015 starts, PacSun apologizes, basically saying, “we give up, we fucked up. Sorry, we’ll pull the shirt from stores.” But it’s not enough. It’s never enough. People are still pissed and call for an all-out boycott of PacSun. Why stop at accepting an apology when you can financially cripple a company and possibly put hundreds if not thousands of people who are just trying to make ends meet out of work? It’s not like you’ve ever done something wrong or made a mistake in real life and asked for forgiveness. Meanwhile, forget trying to put this amount of effort into fighting for equal pay for women — all affiliated with PacSun must pay.

Salem 1692: Mass hysteria reaches a fever pitch and the young girls begin claiming that everyone from infants to clergymen to the elderly are witches. Things have gotten out of hand then suddenly — it all stops. People cease claiming accusations of witchcraft and the townspeople return to their everyday affairs as if nothing happened.

Modern Day: Mass hysteria reaches a fever pitch. People are pissed. Social media statuses such as: “How un-American of Pac Sun!” “They should close all of their stores!” “I will never shop there again!” clutter Facebook and Twitter. Then suddenly — it all stops. People seemingly forget #tshirtgate2015 ever existed because the internet has made us all have the attention spans of five year-olds. However, instead of the good people of social media going back to their everyday affairs, they find something else “truly offensive” and begin complaining about that and the social media circle of life continues. Meanwhile, this is the most anyone has talked about PacSun since 1997, so hopefully their PR department can spin this to their benefit.

Guys, we simply cannot be outraged about inconsequential things on a day-to-day basis. It makes us no better than the two teenage girls who cried “witchcraft” because they wanted attention back in 1692. If everything we see and hear is deemed offensive, we are not only disrupting freedom of speech, we all also have some serious rage problems we need to deal with. Perhaps if we could channel that rage into something productive like fixing the environment, figuring out what to do with California before they run out of water or a better way to handle veteran affairs (everyone was crying “what about the vets?” when this whole t-shirt debacle was going down — how about not treating them like shit when they return from defending our country? They would probably appreciate that more than crying over a t-shirt) we could be in better shape as a country. Or, we could just find something a celebrity said, take it out of context and completely ruin their career. Really, either works.

I apologize in advance for any witches who were offended in the creation of this article.

Millennials Are The Least Religious Generation Yet, And Here’s The Surprising Reason Why

A large body of research shows that Millennials are significantly less religious than previous generations of young Americans. But as to whether the lack of religion seen in today’s Gen Y’ers (born between 1980 and the mid-1990’s) is transient or lasting, scientists aren’t sure.

But now a new review of surveys of more than 11 million adolescents, conducted over the course of almost 50 years, suggests that the religion divide between Millennials and their predecessors is a true generational one. According to the data, Millenials are much less interested in organized religion — and also less interested in spirituality in general.

“Unlike previous studies, ours is able to show that Millennials’ lower religious involvement is due to cultural change, not to Millennials being young and unsettled,” Dr. Jean Twenge, a psychologist at San Diego State University and of the researchers, said in a written statement.

Twenge is referring to studies like a 2010 Pew survey — which suggested that people may consider religion to be more important as they get older — and a 2014 survey that suggested Millennials do have a strong sense of faith in God, despite identifying less with organized religion.

Religion’s decline. For the new study, the researchers reviewed four surveys conducted between 1966 to 2014 and involving 11.2 million American adolescents between the ages of 13 to 18. They found that Millennials were less likely to attend services, less likely to say religion was important in their lives, and less approving of religious organizations than Boomers and Gen X’ers were at the same age.

Millennials “were also less likely to describe themselves as spiritual, suggesting that religion has not been replaced by spirituality,” Twenge told The Huffington Post in an email.

The decline in religiosity was found to be greater among young women than young men. The decline was also found to be greater among Whites than Blacks, and among Northeasterners than Southerners.

A cultural shift. What explains the religious declines? Twenge believes the changes may reflect a growing emphasis on individualism in U.S. culture.

“We found that religious involvement was low when individualism was high,” she said in the email. “Individualism is a cultural system that places more emphasis on the self and less on social rules. Individualism can conflict with religion, especially as religion usually involves following certain rules and being part of a group.”

As for whether the decline is a good thing or a bad thing, she said “I’d rather leave it up to others to decide.”

Whatever the reason, there’s no doubt “this is a time of dramatic change in the religious landscape of the United States,” as the researchers wrote in a paper describing the research, which was published online on May 11 in the journal PLOS ONE.

The Biggest (And Best) Difference Between Millennials and My Generation

We’re an enigma, those of us born at the tail end of the ’70s and the start of the ’80s. Some of the “generational” experts lazily glob us on to Generation X, and others just shove us over to the Millennials they love to hate. No one really gets us or knows where we belong.

We’ve been called “Generation Catalano”, “Xennials”, and “The Lucky Ones”, but no name has really stuck for this strange micro-generation that has both a healthy portion of Gen X grunge cynicism, and a dash of the unbridled optimism of Millennials.

A big part of what makes us the square peg in the round hole of named generations is our strange relationship with technology and the Internet. We came of age just as the very essence of communication was experiencing a seismic shift, and it’s given us a unique perspective that’s half analog old school and half digital new school.

You Have Died of Dysentery

If you can distinctly recall the excitement of walking into your weekly computer lab session and seeing a room full of Apple 2Es displaying the start screen of Oregon Trail, you’re a member of this nameless generation, my friend.

We were the first group of kids who grew up with household computers, but still novel enough to elicit confusion and wonder. Gen X individuals were already fully-formed teens or young adults when computers became mainstream, and Millennials can’t even remember a time before computers.

But, when we first placed our sticky little fingers on a primitive Mac, we were elementary school kids whose brains were curious sponges. We learned how to use these impressive machines at a time when average middle class families were just starting to be able to afford to buy their own massive desktops.

This made us the first children to grow up figuring it out, as opposed to having an innate understanding of new technology the way Millennials did, or feeling slightly alienated from it the way Gen X did.

2015-05-25-1432593856-4405809-aOREGONTRAILGAME200x150.jpg

An AOL Adolescence

Did you come home from middle school and head straight to AOL, praying all the time that you’d hear those magic words, “You’ve Got Mail” after waiting for the painfully slow dial-up internet to connect? If so, then yes, you are a member of the Oregon Trail Generation. And you are definitely part of this generation if you hopped in and out of sketchy chat rooms asking others their A/S/L (age/sex/location for the uninitiated).

Precisely at the time that you were becoming obsessed with celebrities, music and the opposite sex, you magically had access to “the Internet,” a thing that few normal people even partially grasped the power of at the time.

We were the first group of high school kids to do research for papers both online and in an old-fashioned card catalogue, which many millennials have never even heard of by the way (I know because I asked my 21-year-old intern and he started stuttering about library cards).

Because we had one foot in the traditional ways of yore and one foot in the digital information age, we appreciate both in a way that other generations don’t. We can quickly turn curmudgeonly in the face of teens who’ve never written a letter, but we’re glued to our smartphones just like they are.

Those born in the late ’70s and early ’80s were the last group to have a childhood devoid of all the technology that makes childhood and adolescence today pretty much the worst thing imaginable. We were the last gasp of a time before sexting, Facebook-shaming and constant communication.

We used pay-phones. We showed up at each other’s houses without warning. We often spoke to our friends’ parents before we got to speak to them. And we had to wait at least an hour to see any photos we’d taken. But for the group of kids just a little younger than us, the whole world changed — and that’s not an exaggeration. In fact, it’s possible that you had a completely different childhood experience than a sibling just five years your junior, which is pretty mind-blowing.

Napster U

Thanks to the evil genius of Sean Parker, most of us were in college in the heyday of Napster and spent many a night using the university’s communal Ethernet to pillage our friends’ music libraries at breakneck speeds. With mouths agape at having downloaded the entire OAR album in under five seconds, we built our music libraries faster than any other dorm-dwelling generation in history.

We were the first to experience the beauty of sharing and downloading mass amounts of music faster than you can say, “Third Eye Blind,” which made the adoption of MP3 players and music streaming apps perfectly natural. Yet, we still distinctly remember buying cassette singles, joining those scam-tastic CD clubs and recording songs onto tapes from the radio. The very nature of buying and listening to music changed completely within the first 20 years of our lives.

A Youth Untouched by Social Media

The importance of going through some of life’s toughest years without the toxic intrusion of social media really can’t be overstated. MySpace was born in 2003 and Facebook became available to all college students in 2004. o if you were born in 1981-1982, for example, you were literally the last graduating class to finish college without social media being part of the experience.

When we get together with our fellow Oregon Trail Generation friends, we frequently discuss how insanely glad we are that we escaped the middle school, high school and college years before social media took over and made an already challenging life stage exponentially more hellish.

We all talked crazy amounts of shit about each other, took pictures of ourselves and our friends doing shockingly inappropriate things and spread rumors like it was our jobs, but we just never had to worry about any of it ending up in a place where everyone and their moms (literally) could see it a hot second after it happened.

But unlike our older Gen X siblings, we were still young and dumb enough to get really into MySpace and Facebook in its first few years, so we understand what it feels like to overshare on social media and stalk a new crush’s page.

Time after time, we late ’70s and early ’80s babies were on the cusp of changes that essentially transformed modern life and, for better or worse, it’s shaped who we are and how we relate to the world.

ReThink Review: Dear White People – Lessons for Republicans and the “Post-Racial” Generation

A lot of people interested in race issues (including myself) have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Dear White People, a film about a group of black students at a mostly white university that was funded through Indiegogo and eventually made it to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where its writer/director Justin Simien won the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. With Dear White People currently earning a 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and spreading to theaters nationwide this week, the film has palpable momentum as issues like white privilege, cultural appropriation, and the systemic racism and discrimination illuminated by Michael Brown’s killing in Ferguson, Missouri are getting more attention than ever. But even with its seemingly perfect cultural timing, is Dear White People as relevant and hypeworthy as it seems? Watch the trailer for Dear White People below.

The film takes place at the fictional Winchester University, an Ivy-League-type school whose small population of black students has been roiled by new housing rules that have effectively eliminated the school’s only traditionally black residence hall, Armstrong Parker House. That issue gets a jolt when Samantha White, a black film student (Tessa Thompson), unexpectedly becomes head of Armstrong Parker, deposing golden boy Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell) who also happens to be the son of Winchester’s dean of students (Dennis Haysbert). Sam, an artist at heart with a rebel soul, shares her outspoken views on racism and cultural identity on her radio show “Dear White People”, informing the white student body why racism is flourishing and why many of the ways white people attempt to prove their lack of racism fall flat.

Sam is secretly dating a white teacher’s assistant in her film class (Justin Dobies), but she used to date Troy, who’s having his own problems with his white girlfriend (Brittany Curran) who happens to be the daughter of Winchester’s president (Peter Syverston) who’s jerk of a son (Kyle Gallner) runs the school’s National Lampoon-like comedy magazine Pastiche, which Troy would love to join. Also vying for a place on Pastiche is Colondrea “Coco” Connors, a black student (Teyonah Paris) who believes the best way for her to move up in the world is by assimilating, though she’s willing to be more controversial if it earns her more YouTube subscribers and a role on a reality show casting on the campus. Meanwhile, the more militant Reggie (Marque Richardson) has a crush on Sam and seems to be a more socially and culturally acceptable match for her. Bearing witness to all of this is Lionel (Tyler James Williams), a gay nerd (though he hates the categorizations) who doesn’t feel comfortable in any of Winchester’s social groups, though he seems to find a home with the school newspaper, whose editors feel that Lionel’s blackness will give him extra insight, access, and permission to write about the race issues brought out by Sam’s election.

If that seems like an awful lot of characters and subplots, it should, and my main problem with Dear White People is that it tries to do way too much with too many characters, like Simien felt that this may be his only chance to make a feature film so he had to jam everything he’d ever wanted to say about racism and racial campus politics into this one film. This leads to a movie that’s constantly jumping from issue to issue, character to character, and subplot to subplot, providing a lot of breadth without much depth. The acting is mostly good with dialogue that’s a little too earnest and on-the-nose. And as someone who’s done some stand up comedy, I was personally offended by the fact that all of the people involved in or aspiring to join Pastiche are the film’s most humorless characters, though the film is consistently seasoned with clever humor.

Dear White People may suffer for its many ambitions, but I’m certainly glad it has them and am even more glad that this film exists at all. That’s because Dear White People is the first film to really address race in the post-Obama era head on, where even influential black people like Pharrell, Raven Simone, and Donald Glover (in what’s called the “New Black” movement) have declared that racism against blacks is no longer relevant, seemingly agreeing with white republicans who go further to claim that even invoking the subject of racism amounts to race-baiting unless it’s talking about how straight white people are the only REAL victims of discrimination in America today. And I understand how a lot of young people may honestly feel that racism is a relic of the past that America just needs to get over, especially since so many of their pop culture heroes, and even the nation’s first family, are black.

But that idealistic, or perhaps ignorant, mindset doesn’t seem to have an answer to things like Ferguson, republicans’ blatant efforts to disenfranchise black voters, how black people are discriminated against in the workplace, or the large, small, and inadvertent indignations that so many black people continue to face every day just because they’re black. And Dear White People is quick to point out that sometimes these indignations come from within the black community itself, as characters sometimes struggle with their own blackness, worrying if they’re seen as too black, not black enough, or can be comfortable carving out their own spaces somewhere in between.

Dear White People is sure to become both a cult hit and a staple on college campuses across the country, and I’m glad for it since the movie ultimately ends with more questions than answers. And with an issue as multi-faceted as racism, that is as it should be — if there really were easy answers, we’d all agree on them and quietly and unanimously abolish racism forever. But there aren’t, especially as a large percentage of Americans refuse to even acknowledge that racism and its role in America’s history have any effect on how Americans live today. But one thing Dear White People is crystal clear on is that racism exists, and that we’re nowhere near the post-racial America so many wish us to be.

As my girlfriend and I were leaving the screening of Dear White People, an older black woman who was reviewing the film stopped us to ask what we thought of it. Because what struck her most about Dear White People is how most of the issues that were brought up in the film are the same ones she faced as she fought for black people’s civil rights over 50 years ago. And that’s a message that republicans and the so-called post-racial generation need to get through their heads. Just because you don’t see racism or don’t want to see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. As Bergen Evans said, and quoted in the movie Magnolia, “We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.” Or perhaps more appropriately regarding racism in America, we can look to William Faulkner who said, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”

Brandy On Social Media: ‘I Don’t Think I Would Have Made It In This Generation’ (VIDEO)

With a music career that began when she was just 15 years old, singer and actress Brandy has been in the spotlight for two decades. Being a star on the rise can be difficult to navigate for any teen, but Brandy believes that today’s young stars have it much harder than she ever did. The reason? Social media.

In the above web exclusive from Brandy’s “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” interview, she explains the challenge of living in a world that is so socially connected.

“Oh my God… the opinions are so in-your-face,” she says. “I feel for the young artists today because people can just type them anything that they want to say and [be] negative, you know?”

Had social media been around during Brandy’s teen years, she doubts she would have been able to handle her naysayers having such direct access to her. “I don’t think I would have made it in this generation,” she admits. “I don’t think I had… that strength that you need to really have a sense of self.”

She may now be an industry veteran, but Brandy admits that she still struggles reading harsh comments as an adult.

“They say whatever [they want],” she says. “And things still affect me now.”

In the video below, Brandy joins “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” producers and opens up to HuffPost Live about her next big career goal.

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

Strong is the New Pretty: What Beauty Looks Like in the Next Generation of Girls

“You don’t need to be pretty, perfect or compliant to be loved.”

That is the message photographer Kate T. Parker wanted to use to empower her girls when she started taking their pictures three years ago. You won’t see any dolls or pink tutus in this heartwarming, energetic series that beautifully showcases what it means to be a girl now. Parker, a photographer based in Atlanta, Ga., turned her lens on her daughters as a way to encourage them to escape the stereotypes imposed on young girls and celebrate their strengths and interests. Parker’s message to her daughters, aged 5 and 8, is “be strong, be yourself, be honest and celebrate who you are.”

fierce girls

Parker believes we should encourage every girl to “be an athlete, be loud, be a leader.” She said, “I was never made to feel like I needed to be “girly” to be loved or accepted, and I wanted to impart that empowering feeling to my girls by encouraging strength, confidence, kindness as well as toughness.” Parker says this sentiment bled over into her photography as an antidote to what we often see, which is stereotypically beautiful girls “photo-shopped to perfection.” Parker says, “I wanted to show the beauty, uniqueness and strength of my girls and their friends as they truly are: messy hair, dirty faces, angry, joyous — whatever it was, I wanted to capture it.”

As a former collegiate athlete, Parker is passionate about encouraging females to “be themselves and own their power,” and she hopes that by showing, through photography, what powerful, unique individuals her daughters are, it will inspire others to do the same. Parker believes “it is important for girls to know their strength and know their voice.” GLAM4GOOD could not agree more.

Check out Parker‘s tips on how you can take great pictures of your kids, too:

1. Look For The Light: Light is huge! The magic hour (the hour before the sun goes down) is the most flattering and beautiful light. Take your kids out about half an hour before the sun sets. Place them directly in front of the sun facing you, which is called “backlighting,” and snap your pictures then.

2. Don’t Say Cheese: You want real smiles and real interactions between the people in your images. Tell them not to look at you, but rather to look at one another and to tickle each other, or tell everyone to look at so and so’s nose! Most kids will laugh at that and you want to take their picture when genuine laughter happens.

3. Document What They Love: Take pictures of your children with the things (stuffed animals, toys, blankets, clothing, etc.) that they love. Find a blank wall in your home to use as a backdrop. The blank wall makes the eye go to the most important thing in an image: your children. Set your kids up with their favorite things once a year and snap away.

4. Get In Close: Shoot a close up portrait of your children every year or every time something major changes. Did someone get glasses? Shoot it. Lost a tooth? Braces? New haircut? Black eye? Baseball hat from the new team? Click, click. Click, click. If you stay close in and shoot only the face, it makes for a stronger image.

GLAM4GOOD loves how Parker empowers her girls through her passion for photography, and we think you will, too. Take a look at some of her beautiful photographs below!

Soviet Baby Boomers: An Oral History of Russia’s Cold War Generation

Soviet Baby Boomers: An Oral History of Russia’s Cold War Generation


Donald Raleigh’s Soviet Baby Boomers traces the collapse of the Soviet Union and the transformation of Russia into a modern, highly literate, urban society through the fascinating life stories of the country’s first post-World War II, Cold War generation. For this book, Raleigh has interviewed sixty 1967 graduates of two “magnet” secondary schools that offered intensive instruction in English, one in Moscow and one in provincial Saratov. Part of the generation that began school the year the country launched Sputnik into space, they grew up during the Cold War, but in a Soviet Union increasingly distanced from the excesses of Stalinism. In this post-Stalin era, the Soviet leadership dismantled the Gulag, ruled without terror, promoted consumerism, and began to open itself to an outside world still fearful of Communism. Raleigh is one of the first scholars of post-1945 Soviet history to draw extensively on oral history, a particularly useful approach in studying a country where the boundaries between public and private life remained porous and the state sought to peer into every corner of people’s lives. During and after the dissolution of the USSR, Russian citizens began openly talking about their past, trying to make sense of it, and Raleigh has made the most of this new forthrightness. He has created an extraordinarily rich composite narrative and embedded it in larger historical narratives of Cold War, de-Stalinization, “overtaking” America, opening up to the outside world, economic stagnation, dissent, emigration, the transition to a market economy, the transformation of class, ethnic, and gender relations, and globalization. Including rare photographs of daily life in Cold War Russia, Soviet Baby Boomers offers an intimate portrait of a generation that has remained largely faceless until now.
