Telfar Clemens Teases First Paris Show with Brooklyn Film Screening

Designer Telfar Clemens gathered a cool crowd to 99 Scott in East Williamsburg on Friday night for a taste of what he will present at his runway show opening Paris Fashion Week Sept. 24. Guests got their first glimpse of the designer’s new collection in a six-minute clip of a film scripted by “Slave Play” writer Jeremy O. Harris and artist Juliana Huxtable that will be shown in Paris as part of the show. “Are you a citizen of united communities?” was one of question posed in the dialogue as characters walked through airport security, or stood on buoys in open water with the Manhattan skyline behind them. “I think one guy fell in,” said model Aheem Sosa, watching himself on screen, and stealing a few photos (guests were told not to take photos to keep things under wraps until Paris.) “The way he portrays black people is unique,” Sosa said of what he likes about Clemens. “…You don’t have to be a black gay man or a black straight man you can just be yourself.” Clothes spotted amidst the on-screen action? Utility pieces, thigh-hole track pants and Budweiser silk print shirts alongside Telfar’s new jewelry range that plays on his initials “TC,” and

Formula E Races Through Brooklyn to End Season

As many New Yorkers and tourists took in the city’s sights or fled to the beach over the weekend, thousands of others rushed to Red Hook in Brooklyn for the final leg of the 2018-19 FIA Formula E season. This weekend saw the end of the fifth season of the electric motor-racing championship.
Founded by former politician and businessman Alejandro Agag, Formula E is a fast-paced electric version of the popular Formula One competition. While the latter uses hybrid engines, an innovation it implemented in 2019, Formula E uses strictly electric cars produced by Spark Racing. The lithe 2,000-pound cars reach speeds as high as 160 miles an hour and can reach 60 mph in two seconds.
The 2018-19 FIA Formula E season saw races in Morocco, Chile, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. The season began on Dec. 15 in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, which also marked the first Formula E race to be held in the Middle East. Following a world tour that took racers to Marrakech, Santiago, Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin, the competitors headed to New York City to compete and claim the championship.
Prior to the weekend event, Hugo Boss and Porsche unveiled a collaboration collection, launching this

Alife Collaborates With the Brooklyn Museum, Faith Ringgold

Last year, Alife relaunched with an unexpected Crocs collaboration.
Alife approached Crocs before the footwear brand reentered the fashion conversation via a tie-in with Balenciaga on an imaginative, platform pair that retails for $ 850. But since then, newer streetwear brands including Pleasures and Chinatown Market have released their own co-branded Crocs.
“That’s the last thing we wanted to happen,” said Treis Hill, an Alife cofounder, when asked about these collaborations. “One thing that Alife consistently tries to ensure, which might be to our detriment, is that we aren’t trying to follow what people do. No one was thinking about Crocs until we did it, so for us let’s move on to something else and focus on a new message.”
That new message is Black History Month, and Alife has partnered with the Brooklyn Museum and Faith Ringgold, a Harlem-born artist whose work was featured in the “Soul of a Nation” exhibit at the museum. Ringgold is known for her quilts, but also practices painting, sculpting and performance art.
“Alife is centered around art and our objective is to push art and perpetuate that through our apparel, but this is the first time we’ve done something during Black History Month,” said Hill. “This was an

For the next few days, Adidas will operate Factory 55, a pop-up space at 55 Wythe Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that promotes its P.O.D. System sneaker.
Upon entering the private warehouse through clear vinyl hanging strips, viewers are presented with a detailed breakdown on the construction of the sneaker, which they can purchase nearby, but most of the venue is dedicated to customization experiences and workshops.
There is a station for T-shirt customization, and an area where attendees can create posters along with pop-ups from Fool’s Gold, Joe Freshgoods and Procell. Adidas has also scheduled a series of workshops ranging from a creative process session with Luke Tadashi of Bristol Studio, a Zine workshop with Paper Work NYC and a lesson in screen-printing from Morning Breath.
“At Adidas, we believe that sport has the power to change lives, and this holds even more truth when we think of the younger generations,” said Kelly Olmstead, vice president of brand activation. “They live in a creative space that is also influenced by culture, music, and even video games.

Chrissy Teigen, John Legend Cheer Brooklyn Decker at Finery’s L.A. Launch

“We realized that women were spending more on their clothing than their education, and yet there is so much that is hanging in their closets that they don’t use,” said Whitney Casey by way of explaining why she and Brooklyn Decker decided to create Finery, the virtual wardrobe and styling app they launched in March 2017.
Just over a year later, the former CNN journalist and the model-actress celebrated with a launch party at the Microsoft Lounge in Culver City, Calif. While the company is based in New York, where both divide their time with Austin, Tex., Decker has a host of friends in Los Angeles, such as Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and Jen Atkin, all of whom came to cheer her on, as did New Yorker Emmy Rossum (both she and Decker are filming television shows in L.A. this summer).

Pizza Inferno: John Travolta Channels Saturday Night Fever at Brooklyn Event in His Honor

John Travolta returned to Lenny’s Pizza in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, on Tuesday, over 40 years after his Saturday Night Fever character Tony Manero made the establishment famous.

Dressed in a white suit jacket and black shirt that mimicked the iconic outfit he wore in the 1977 film, the actor was all smiles as he was honored by the borough in what was dubbed “John Travolta Day.”

Wife Kelly Preston was by his side at the event, dressed in a long-sleeve black patterned dress. The two danced to the Bee Gees’ music from the film’s best-selling soundtrack, and sampled slices from Lennys as they were cheered on by thousands of admirers gathered along 86th Street.

Travolta, 64, put Lenny’s Pizza on the map in the opening credits of Saturday Night Fever when he ordered two slices from the eatery, stacked them, and ate them together as one. Lenny’s has since named the “double-decker slice” in Travolta’s honor, local outlet PIX-11 reported.

“It’s not often that we have an opportunity to recognize a great actor who helped turn Brooklyn into a cultural touchstone of the late 1970s,” New York State Senator Marty Golden told the crowd, in video captured by PIX-11. “John Travolta did exactly that.”

For his part, Travolta appeared to be overjoyed and humbled. “We love you. We love Brooklyn,” he told the crowd in the PIX-11 clip. “Thank you very, very much.”

“I’m so humbled, it’s amazing,” he added as police escorted him through the crowds, according to the outlet. “I never expected this big a turnout, it was awesome.”

Preston, 55, shared video and photos of the afternoon on Instagram.

“Having a total fangirl moment!!! 💁🏼‍♀️” she wrote. “Thank you Brooklyn for an insane day 😍.”

RELATED VIDEO: John Travolta’s Changing Looks!

Saturday Night Fever followed the dual life of Travolta’s character; a star on the discotheque dance floor but a working-class man with a dead-end job and an unsupportive family back at home.

The film — which was directed by John Badham — popularized disco music across the world. A Sylvester Stallone-directed sequel, Staying Alive, was released in 1983.

Travolta is in the Big Apple to support his new movie, Gotti, in theaters on Friday.

The week also marks the 40th anniversary of another one of Travolta’s treasured films: Grease.

Supreme Confirms Brooklyn Store

NEW YORK — Supreme has landed in Brooklyn.
After months of speculation, the company has confirmed that it will open a store on Thursday at 152 Grand Street in Williamsburg.
The cavernous space is sparse, much like Supreme’s other shops, but features skylights and a bowl for skating. This is the brand’s second New York store.
Resellers say rumors of a Brooklyn store have been percolating for a few years because of the crowds Supreme draws at its SoHo store on Thursdays when new product drops, but talks started to dissipate once the company created a drop system that alleviated those crowds on Lafayette Street. Customers now meet in a park the Monday before Thursday drops and put their names on a list. They then receive a number that dictates when they can enter the flagship, eliminating the need for a line.
In July, Louis Vuitton had to cancel its Supreme pop-up on Bond Street because Manhattan’s Community Board No. 2 unanimously denied the proposal, citing Supreme’s tendency to violate New York permit requirements and its lack of a plan to manage the crowds on a quiet, residential street. The collection was never released in New York.

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

Andy Roddick Reveals Wife Brooklyn Decker Is Pregnant with Their Second Child — a Girl

Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick‘s family will soon be set for a game of doubles.

Roddick revealed that his wife Decker, 30, is pregnant with their second child — a daughter — when he gave an acceptance speech at the International Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2017 ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, on Saturday.

“My wife Brooklyn, most people don’t know you’re kind of nuts,” the 34-year-old said. “You’re my partner in crime. In a life full of good fortune, being around you has been by far the luckiest part. I’m a better human for us having met 10 years ago.

“Brook, I don’t know how you juggle it all,” he continued. “I see it every day and it still doesn’t make any sense to me. You’re an unreal artist, businesswoman, mother, wife, sister and friend. You hear a lot of guys who find it very tough to walk away from professional sports. You’re the reason why my personal transition into a quasi-normal, everyday life has been gratifying and full. Hank will someday realize how lucky he is. Our daughter that’s coming will also realize she has the best mother on earth. Simply, thank you for being you.”

The retired tennis pro and Grace and Frankie star are already parents to son Hank, who will turn 2 in September.

Brooklyn Decker Wants to Help You Get Dressed for a Date

Brooklyn Decker and Whitney Casey’s Finery has a new partnership — with online dating site Match.com
Since launching the wardrobe operating platform in March 2017, Decker noted that most feedback has been related to getting dressed for a date. “We wanted to figure out if we could find a solution for this. We said, let’s reach out to the leader in online dating, so we reached out to Match.com,” Decker explains of the linkup between the two female-led tech companies. “I think ultimately, the thing we have in common with Match.com is probably anyone who’s dating online is probably shopping online,” she adds. “Most of our users do 70 to 80 percent of their shopping online.”

Utilizing analytics and machine-learning processes, the site is able to suggest outfits for users based on their preferences and past choices.

Supreme Said To Be Opening Brooklyn Store

Supreme is said to be opening its second New York location in Brooklyn.
According to the @supreme__hustle Instagram account, which is dedicated to all things Supreme, the streetwear brand will open a store in Williamsburg and a real estate source said Supreme had been eyeing a 3,000-square-foot space on Grand Street.
Resellers say rumors of a Brooklyn store have been percolating for a couple years because of the crowds Supreme draws at its SoHo store on Thursdays when new product drops. In 2014 the New York Police Department temporarily shut down the location due to safety concerns surrounding the release of the Supreme Nike Air Foamposite sneakers. The NYPD recently closed Palace, a streetwear brand based in London, due to unruly customers during its store opening.
Andre Arias, who resells Supreme, said talks of a Brooklyn store started to dissipate once the company created a new drop system that alleviated crowds on Lafayette Street. Arias said customers now meet in a park the Monday before Thursday drops and put their names on a list.

Rodd & Gunn to Open Store in Brooklyn

Rodd & Gunn, a New Zealand-based men’s wear brand, will open its second U.S. store in New York City in March.
The 3,200-square-foot store at 81 Front Street in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn joins a flagship that opened in Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., in October.
Rodd & Gunn operates 85 stores in New Zealand and Australia, but entered the American market as a wholesaler.
Asked why the brand chose Brooklyn instead of Manhattan for its East Coast debut, Mike Beagley, chief executive officer, said, “We weren’t really looking at opening on the East Coast, but this opportunity came up and we thought it was a great way of commencing in New York quickly. It is an amazing building in an iconic location that we believe is an emerging retail and lifestyle area of Brooklyn – incredibly high average household income and literally a stone’s throw from Wall Street.”
He said the California store has performed “exceptionally well and we are really happy in how the Newport Beach community has embraced us. We are trading well above plan and selling all of our categories from hand-made in New Zealand luggage to outerwear and footwear.”

How A Hijab-Friendly Brooklyn Salon Became A Space For Women’s Empowerment

Muslim cosmetologist Huda Quhshi used to lug her supplies around New York City, cutting and coloring women’s hair over sinks in crowded apartments. 

But Quhshi’s days of itinerant hairstyling are over. Last month, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bay Ridge, the 37-year-old realized her lifelong dream of opening a salon that caters entirely to women. Her salon, Le’Jemalik, has become a kind of sanctuary for women who want to let their hair down in a ladies-only space.

“It’s a place where you can come and feel relaxed, and just have a beautiful experience without worrying that a man is going to walk in,” Quhshi told The Huffington Post.

Le’Jemalik, which means “for your beauty” in Arabic, offers a full range of services, from hairstyling to nails, waxing and makeup. It even sells wedding dresses and offers regular seminars for beauty professionals looking to enhance their skills.

The salon hosted its grand opening on Jan. 29, with hundreds of visitors stopping by to glimpse the space, Quhshi said. It had already attracted a fair amount of media attention, not only as a business run by and for women but as a place where Muslim women, in particular, can feel safe and welcome.

Not all Muslim women cover their hair or wear hijabs. But those who do maintain a commitment to covering in front of men to whom they aren’t related. It’s a tradition upheld by some Orthodox Jewish women, as well.

Some salons have dividers or rooms in the back to accommodate women with these religious requirements. But Quhshi said she wasn’t aware of any other salons in New York City where the entire space is a men-free zone.

Men are allowed in the front waiting area of Le’Jemalik, but the actual service area lies behind a double door that only women may pass through. 

Quhshi said the salon has attracted many Muslim and Jewish clients since it opened. But she emphasized that “this space is for all women.”

“I’ve had women from other faiths tell me that they’re so excited about this space, even though they’re not Muslim,” she said. “They’re happy to be able to support a woman-run business and come here just because they want to feel comfortable.”

As a hijab-wearing Muslim woman of Yemeni descent, Quhshi said she hopes she can be an inspiration to other women who may have to overcome bias to achieve their goals. 

“I want to help other girls follow their dreams,” she said. “I’m definitely happy to empower other women and make other women feel like I’ve opened doors for them.”

Queer Brooklyn Art Collective, Party Duo Shutter Their Practice

A New York nightlife-based art collective and end event production duo will end their practice together, with their final collaboration taking place on New Year’s Eve.

Back in 2014, HuffPost Queer Voices engaged in a long-term examination of the NYC nightlife community both historically and today called “After Dark.” The Culture Whore, made up of Dream Dommu and Paul Leopold, were featured in this series, and just over two years later the pair will end their collaborative practice and pursue careers as individual artists.

“The Culture Whore (TCW) really happened because we loved the community we found going out and wanted to make it more accessible,” the pair told HuffPost. “There’s definitely been a renaissance in New York nightlife over the past few years, specifically queer nightlife and centered around Brooklyn, and we’re proud that TCW has been a big part of that. There is incredible art being made in New York City every day by truly brilliant queers, and TCW has always been a platform to bring that to a wider audience.”

Over the past four years, TCW has proved an important part of the queer art scene in Brooklyn, providing space for identity exploration and creative production in spaces that are largely DIY or underground. From raves that deconstruct the queer themes of Harry Potter to events questioning the nature of surveillance in the digital age, TCW’s events have proved important to a large number of the queer people navigating this outer borough.

As Leopold and Dommu move on to differing paths, the pair emphasized that it’s crucial queer nightlife in New York continue to revolve around the DIY.

“The underground is really about space. We need to support non traditional spaces so that they can survive,” Dommu continued. “Always choose a DIY space over a traditional bar or club. Sometimes people take for granted that the underground is just there when you want it, but if we all don’t support the underground it could literally be priced out.”

As for the legacy of The Culture Whore and its memory within the historical consciousness of this community, Dommu and Leopold emphasized that TCW has always been bigger than the two of them.

“We want TCW to be remembered as being bigger than us, a community and a moment in time that honored the past while shaping the future,” they said. 

The Culture Whore’s final party, called “Night Riders,” is a collaboration with Rify Royalty and will be on Dec. 31 in Brooklyn.

Pintrill Opens Brooklyn Store

Jordan Roschwalb’s enthusiasm for pins is infectious.
“I wanted to be able to give pin collectors a space to congregate just like sneaker collectors go to Stadium Goods,” said Roschwalb when asked about Pintrill’s first brick-and-mortar store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. “This will be a flagship where people from all over can come and experience this.”
Roschwalb cofounded Pintrill in 2014 along with Doni Gitlin and Andrew Yung. Over the past two years the brand has grown rapidly with its clever, of-the-moment pins, which retail from $ 12 to $ 20 and are released on a weekly basis.
The Pintrill flagship, which opens this Saturday at 231 Grand Street, sells Pintrill’s vast collection of pins. They are displayed on clear pegs to give the appearance that they are floating. The 625-square-foot space, which will also serve as Pintrill’s headquarters, is stocked with vintage pins Roschwalb sources from all over the word — they are featured on rotating trays in a glass box — and supplementary items to display pins such as vintage corkboards, trays and Pintrill’s line of hats.
Different displays in the shop, which is sprinkled with vintage toy viewfinders, will be dedicated to new weekly releases, in-store exclusives and a board behind the cash register

Paris-based model Sonia Ben Ammar is stunning, with classic French girl style she displays in full via Instagram. We know the look is about casual basics, plenty of flats, and outfits that have perfect little details you only notice when giving them a thorough once-over, and it’s pretty much check, check, check for the lovely.

Sonia’s style holds true to the sartorial standard: she’s got a super collection of perfect skinny jeans and cozy sweaters that are basic enough, but manage to look effortless when styled together just so. Her accessory game mixes some jealousy-inducing bags with the quirky pieces any 16-year-old girl would like (four of her most recently posted pics show one of those stretchy, thin plastic chokers that first emerged in the ’90s).

Stat-wise, she’s signed with Next Management and has also done some acting and singing. Her and Brooklyn’s relationship supposedly started when their families were vacationing at the same time in the Maldives, and they’ve moved on from “chaperoned” Paris trips to some Hollywood concert canoodling. For the latter she wore a ring-neck tee and carried a chain-strap orange bag. So cool.

Below, a glance at some of her best outfits to date.

They Are Wearing: Afropunk Fest in Brooklyn

The two-day Afropunk Festival — “a weekend of live music, vibrant art and good vibes” — has been known to bring out some of the most expressive and original street style in Brooklyn. The 11th annual festival, held this past Saturday and Sunday in Fort Greene’s Commodore Barry Park, was no exception, offering up plenty of eclectic, electric style. As Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Danny Brown, SZA and other artists performed, festivalgoers competed for sartorial attention with vibrantly hued head wraps and dashikis, bold eyewear, chunky jewelry and imaginatively colored hair. It was a celebration of both individuality and community — cool confidence on a hot summer weekend.

Kith Opens Redesigned Brooklyn Store

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Talk about being meticulous.
Ronnie Fieg considered every detail in the redesign of Kith’s Brooklyn location on Flatbush Avenue, which opened Monday.
The store, which was designed in collaboration with architecture firm Snarkitecture, is full of Instagram bait for Fieg’s sneaker-obsessed following.
“I’m invested in spaces as much as I’m invested in product,” said Fieg. “Building an experience is as important as building product because experiences stay in the memory bank.”
When shoppers enter the store, they are greeted by a Kith logo on a white marble herringbone floor, which is perfectly positioned for the brand’s snap-happy customers to shoot from above alongside the sneakers they’re wearing. On the ceiling there are 750 suspended cast-Air Jordan II sneakers, a design element that’s also featured at Fieg’s Manhattan store, which displays cast-Air Jordan I sneakers.
“The way I look at my brand and life is like a timeline,” said Fieg, who added that his women’s store, which is set to open in SoHo on Bleecker Street this December, will be decorated with cast-Air Jordan III sneakers.
Footwear from brands including Nike, Asics, Buscemi and Adidas are displayed on both sides of the store behind glass walls, lending a gallery feel to the boutique. On the other

How To Meditate: Tips From Lama Surya Das, The ‘Buddha From Brooklyn’

(RNS) Lama Surya Das, the “Buddha from Brooklyn,” is one of the handful of Westerners who have been teaching meditation for decades. And yet, he says we’re doing it wrong.

“So many people seem to be moving narcissistically — conditioned by our culture, doubtless — into self-centered happiness-seeking and quietism, not to mention the use of mindfulness for mere effectiveness,” he said. True meditation, he said, generates wisdom and compassion, which may be very disquieting, at least in the short term.

Born Jeffrey Miller, Surya Das has had a spiritual journey that is remarkable in its breadth. He was given the name “Surya Das” by the Indian guru Neem Karoli Baba, made famous by Ram Dass more than 40 years ago. But Surya Das shifted gears in the early 1970s to Tibetan Buddhism, subsequently completing two three-year silent meditation retreats and becoming one of the first Westerners to be authorized as a Tibetan lama.

At the time, meditation was still considered pretty weird: foreign, exotic, hippie-ish. Now it’s everywhere. Meditation — especially mindfulness, which trains the mind to observe nonjudgmentally and attentively — has gone mainstream. In secular forms, it’s now widespread in health care, education, the corporate world, even the military. Each year, 1 million Americans take up the practice for the first time.

Surya Das is not entirely happy about that. “Mindful divorce, mindful parenting, mindful TV,” he complained. “Why not mindful sniping, poaching, or mindful waiting to find the opportunity to take advantage of and exploit someone when there’s a chink in their armor?”

Moreover, he said, because of the way meditation is taught, many people think they can’t do it. “’Quiet your mind’ or ‘calm and clear your mind’ are instructions I hear way too much. Some teachers actually encourage people to try to stop thinking, when in fact meditative awareness means being mindful of thoughts and feelings, not simply trying to reduce, alter or white them out and achieve some kind of oblivion.”

What’s missing? In his new book, “Make Me One With Everything” (the answer to a well-worn Buddhist joke: “What did the Zen monk say to the hot dog vendor?”), Surya Das argues for a return to the original purpose of Buddhist meditation: not relaxation, but liberation. The goal, he said, is “to genuinely learn how to gain direct access to Oneness, wholeness, completeness, integration with all the parts of themselves and life.”

“All the parts” is a crucial ingredient. In “Make Me One,” he proposes what he calls “co-meditation” — not trying to find a quiet “moment of Zen” apart from the messy, noisy world of work, family and children, but inviting all of the noise into meditation. That is indeed unorthodox in a contemporary context. But it is also part of the ancient Tibetan tradition known as Lojong, which often features elaborate visualizations — not quieting down and following the breath. Indeed, many of the book’s unusual meditation practices — sky-gazing, gardening, meditation for couples, and wild neologisms including Presencing, Convergitation and Momitation — are based on Surya Das’ years of studying and translating esoteric Tibetan teaching tales.

“It’s the same transformative and liberating essence, yet I think it’s pretty new for almost everyone today,” he said. “The anti-intellectual meditators, thought-swatters and imagination-suppressors have long ruled meditation-oriented circles in the West. But authentic meditative practices can enhance and even unleash the creativity and imagination.”

One benefit of these practices is that you don’t have to quiet the mind to do them. “It’s helpful for people who think they can’t meditate because they can’t sit still and think less. That ain’t the point.”

Still, bringing more noise into one’s meditation practice is diametrically opposed to the popular conception of meditation as calming and quieting. Surya Das calls that “the old New Age, self-growth, self-development, self-improvement emphasis — trying to use meditation to get away from it all. We need to erode the Grand Canyon-like gulf we see today between self and other, us and them, inner and outer, and even body and mind, body and soul, heaven and hell, liking and disliking, to realize the great equanimity of what is called in Tibetan Buddhism One Taste, and what others call unity vision, oneness, third-eye vision and the like.”

You may have already noticed that Surya Das speaks in long, often hilarious sentences, filled with puns and jokes. This rhetorical style is of a piece with his conceptual point — that awakening isn’t some calm, blissed-out state but is being at home with every state of mind, including the rapid-fire speech of a born-and-bred New Yorker.

For example, here’s how he summarizes the key teaching of the book, complete with 13 adjectives, 10 nouns and 11 verbs: “Can I say that this book presents, elucidates, rationalizes and instructs, in the extraordinary American-Buddhism’s fresh and newly minted, jargon-free, straight talkin’, practical and flexible, adaptable, personal and integratable, nonsectarian organic ways for a whole new way of meditating, with tips and pointers to find your own way and authentic practice style, thus avoiding many, if not most, of the obstacles and hindrances, doubts and distractions practitioners so often face and stumble upon?”

Sure you can.

There’s a refreshing honesty in this iconoclastic approach. Whatever awakening is, surely it has something to do with authenticity. And for some of us, authenticity is fast-talking, free-associating and full of sound and fury.

Or as Surya Das himself put it, “It can become obnoxious, I know, but I’m a folksy, campy, backyard bodhisattva-from-Brooklyn kinda guy, what can I say?”

Brooklyn Decker’s Maternity Style Is Off to a Strong Start

Brooklyn Decker and hubby Andy Roddick shared the exciting news earlier this week that they’re expanding their family. Decker’s already had a few red carpet appearances since then, meaning an early chance to examine her adorable maternity style.

brooklyn-decker-blue-dress-pregnant-andy-roddick-foundation
To celebrate Roddick’s foundation, she chose a midnight blue silk dress that only flared out under her belly. Since it’s early on in her pregnancy, her stomach is still super tiny, but the decision to rock something formfitting is a pretty good indication that throughout the next nine months she won’t be shy about showing off her new curves.

brooklyn-decker-striped-dress-i-heart-radio-awards-2015
Last weekend she was at the I Heart Radio country festival in a striped maxi, proving that just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you should be relegated to a wardrobe full of neutrals.

So this happened… #the3ofus

For the big reveal and announcement on Instagram, she picked another floaty maxi, sharing the news with fans everywhere. Let’s hope for more beautiful boho moments like this one.

10 Brooklyn Jewelry Designers with Their Own Shops

2014-10-22-JewelryDesigners.png

Brooklyn jewelry designers have emerged over the past decade or so with a distinct philosophy, fusing the concepts of high-end luxury with low-key presentation. They’ve also shown a gutsy independent streak, which may go a long way in explaining why so many of them also run their own shops. Their retail spaces become extensions of their design aesthetics and ideal environments for people to enjoy their latest works. Many of these shops double as studios, allowing visitors to see firsthand how the pieces on display come into being.

Brooklyn Decker On Why She ‘Wasn’t A Good Model’

Brooklyn Decker’s happy to have made the transition from Sports Illustrated cover girl to “Friends With Better Lives” actress.

“Acting is much more gratifying than modeling,” she told HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill in an interview to promote the new CBS sitcom.

“But I wasn’t a good model,” she added.

“I know that’s so crazy and people want to hurt me when I say that. But really, when I was modeling, I never walked a runway,” she explained. “I got fired from jobs all the time. Sports Illustrated was really the only client that loved me.”

26-year-old Decker has been featured in spreads for Teen Vogue, Glamour and Cosmo. Still, she emphasized her that she’d be sticking to acting in the future.

“I was just never any good at it, so, for me, acting just feels right,” Decker concluded.
