Ranking All 32 World Cup Jerseys from Worst to Best
Continuing with his series of insightful videos into unique fashion designs and obscure trends, Todd Selby has released a series of films with subjects taken from his third book Fashionable Selby. While the hardback tome profiles 42 individuals, this video series focuses on four characters who push the envelope in fashion with their bold dispositions and DIY approach to design.
First up is Yoshikazu Yamagata, a Japanese artist who retraces steps in art by “learning to draw as a child,” a style that correlates with his cut and sew work for his Writtenafterwards label. Next up, Antwep Royal Academy of Fine Arts graduate Yuima Nakazato takes us to a tree house built by his father and speaks on how his upbringing around nature influences his modern designs. Meeting another nature enthusiast, The Selby speaks with natural dye wizard Audrey Louis Reyolds who explores colors from plants and algae in creating interesting gradients via her own organic dye techniques. Lastly, we meet Yujiro Komatsu of Blackmeans Leather, a store located in Tokyo that stocks vintage leather jackets and punk accessories. Komoatsu and his cohort of modern cowboys live off punk’s DIY spirit, adding bold statement accents to second-hand wardrobe staples.
Enjoy the well-documented clips below and purchase Fashionable Selby from Amazon for $ 26 USD.

After being targeted by the National Music Publishers Association for “illegally” posting the lyrics to popular songs, Rap Genius has now been penalized by Google. According to the NY Times, the lyrics site has been removed from the search engine for inflating their traffic rankings.
Rap Genius was removed from Google search on Christmas Day, after representatives for the Brooklyn-based company came clean about practices that violate Google’s policy. In an apology letter, the founders wrote:
“The other strategy we employ on a much smaller scale (the subject of recent Hacker News controversy) is to find blogs whose content we think our followers will enjoy and ask them to link pages on Rap Genius that are relevant to their posts. We actually thought we had set this up to be compliant with Google’s linking policy in its Terms of Service, but we messed up and want to explain how.“
Rap Genius’ traffic numbers have reportedly suffered from the swift Google search removal, dropping from over a million to under 3,00,000 in just a few days.
I was invited to a holiday party where I’ll know the host, but not many other people there. Any tried and true tactics on how to enter a conversation gracefully? Or start one up with a stranger?
Honestly, I’d just stay home if I were you. Why would you go to this? Even if you manage to start talking to someone they’ll excuse themselves to go to the bathroom after five minutes so they can go back and talk to their ACTUAL FRIENDS and then you’ll be left alone by the cheese table AGAIN. And what’s worse is your presence there will prevent all the other guests partaking in the lovely assortment of cheese because no one wants to get stuck talking to you and by the time the party’s over even the host will resent you. He bought all the cheese! That no one could eat! Because of you! Save yourself and everyone the pain, I think. Unless you’re really hot—like 9 or 10—then you’ll be fine.
