A First Look at Virgil Abloh’s Limited Social Studies New York T-Shirt Design

During this weekend’s eagerly-awaited Social Studies event, attendees will have the chance to meet with some of the biggest names in the youth culture, customize a variety of garments and listen to exclusive talks between creatives. They’ll also have the opportunity to grab exclusive merch, including this duo of Virgil Abloh-designed T-shirts. Emblazoned with “STUYVESANT LEADER PHYSICAL ED.” verbiage, the red/yellow and black/white shirts juxtapose the collegiate text on the front with the logos of every single event contributor on the rear, making for a crowded, yet communal, design.

All proceeds of the $ 100 USD shirt will go to Casita Maria, a Bronx-based youth charity. Guests will be able to grab their choice of tee at the event this weekend, November 16-18.

Most recently, Abloh got into hot water over his work on Serena Williams’ GQ cover.

Anthony Bourdain’s Final Episode: A Touching Tribute to Fellow New York Misfits

David Scott Holloway

It would have been easy to make the final posthumous episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown a sentimental tribute to the late host. And in fact, CNN did air such an episode, featuring interviewers with friends and admirers a few weeks ago. But instead, this Sunday night’s series finale, set in New York’s Lower East Side, is an almost entirely selfless examination of the artists who shaped Bourdain’s life during the early days of his restaurant career.

Mostly absent from the episode is food, aside from a chocolate egg cream here and a a bowl of soup at Veselka there. Instead of interviewing chefs, Bourdain visits a series of once revolutionary punk rockers, performance artists and experimental filmmakers who are trying to figure out a way to maintain relevance in the 21st century.

Debbie Harry. Fab 5 Freddy. Jim Jarmusch. These are his people.

Jussara Lee Taking Her Message of Sustainability to a Multisensory Performance in New York

SECONDHAND NEWS: Committed to sustainability as an individual, designer and business owner, Jussara Lee used that ideology as a rookie costume designer for “Inside the Wild Heart.”
Based on the writings of one of Brazil’s most famous writers, Clarice Lispector, the immersive theatrical experience was conceived by Andressa Furletti and Debora Balardini and directed by Linda Wise. The show bows Thursday in New York. Lee was initially approached by the Brazilian theater company Group.BR about helping to fund the production. She offered to pitch in with the cast’s attire instead.
Lee described Lispector’s work as “amazing,” but the project’s upcycling is what really sold her. Working with a low budget meant “that it was all about secondhand and vintage shopping. I was very interested in that and told them, ‘We’ll make adjustments. We’ll make things fit. That’s what we do best,’” said Lee, adding that she liked the idea of reusing “things that had already been extracted and polluted. There is so much clean-up to do and so much stuff in this world.””
In addition, the project forced her to switch up her usual routine and do some thrifting at Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn and “all the other underlings.” It was also an

Huckberry Will Open First Shop in New York

Huckberry is jumping into the pop-up craze.
The San Francisco-based online men’s retailer will open its first retail location at 383 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village in November. The shop will feature “seven actionable adventures” that will highlight journeys ranging from a ​West Village Drinking Tour with Jack Kerouac to ​72 Hours in Iceland​. Each will offer a free itinerary that customers can take away from the store, insider perks at select stops such as discounts, VIP treatment, etc., and an edited selection of the season’s apparel, footwear, gear and gifts targeted to the specific adventure.
The pop-up will also offer a series of in-store events such as fireside chats and product demos. The first will be a question-and-answer with adventure photographer Chris Burkard on Nov. 6.
“When we started Huckberry in our apartments back in 2011, our mission was the same then as it is now: to inspire and equip adventures near and far,” Huckberry cofounder Andy Forch said. “Today, we’re excited to take our mission offline and serve our largest market with a fun and inspiring shopping experience we hope will push the boundaries of experiential retail.”
Cofounder Richard Greiner added: “Our vision is to build the most inspiring men’s retailer in the world through

Lingerie Française to Open Lingerie Loft in New York

Lingerie Française, an organization that represents French lingerie brands, is hosting a lingerie loft in New York.
Open from Nov. 2 to 4, it will display pieces from brands including Aubade, Chantelle, Passionata, Empreinte, Antigel, Maison Lejaby, Simone Perele and Implicite. The loft is a way to highlight these brands and introduce them to the U.S. customer, who Ulyana Sukach, director of international development at Lingerie Française, said already enjoys French lingerie.

David Mallett Opens New York Salon at The Webster

David Mallett is bringing his signature brand of Parisian-chic hairdressing to New York.
Mallett, an Australian native whose taxidermy-filled eponymous salon in the Second Arrondissement is something of a fashion insider institution in Paris, is set to open a third location — his first in the U.S. and first outside Paris — on the top floor of Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s The Webster in SoHo, on Oct. 16.
The 1,600-square-foot space will operate as a full-service, eight-chair salon, with color, cutting, styling and treatment services overseen by Mallett himself and staffed by longtime employees of his Paris salons, including two hairdressers, two colorists and a client director. Mallett, who opened his second outpost at The Ritz Paris in 2016, will split his time between New York and Paris going forward.
The salon on the fifth floor of The Webster was designed by French architect Charles Zana to replicate the style of Mallett’s Paris salons, which are inspired by French-style craftsmanship. Lamps, furniture and other decor were custom-made for The Webster by François Pouenat, a fifth-generation French artisan metalworker. In a nod to his native Australia, Mallett partnered with Australia-based Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen on accent pieces. Mallett purposefully to designed the New York space

The 10 Biggest Stories From New York Comic Con 2018

New York Comic Con 2018 was the biggest yet. Numerous TV shows and movies were showcased at the massive annual celebration of pop culture, giving fans a glimpse at what’s to come, a look back at iconic films or series, and exclusive insights alongside sneak peek footage. But some stories from the event stood out from the rest — this is our pick of the biggest, buzziest reveals from NYCC 2018.

Daredevil Bullseye Reveal

The Daredevil panel announced the show’s worst kept secret — that Bullseye would be the villain in Season 3 — albeit one manipulated by Wilson Fisk. We’ll see Bullseye’s origin story as FBI agent Benjamin Poindexter puts on the red Daredevil suit and starts meting out his own brand of justice. However, it was during our interview with the series cast that we revealed just how much of a threat he will pose to Matt Murdock. Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Fisk — one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most perturbing villains – had this to say about Bullseye:

“It’s important that Poindexter becomes the worst part of himself. The city needs somebody to hate more than they hate Wilson Fisk.”

Showrunner Erik Oleson,  meanwhile, told us: “I think in this season, we very much needed a physical threat to Matt in addition to the Machiavellian plottings of Wilson Fisk.”

Hellboy — the First Bloody Trailer

David Harbour as Hellboy.

Anticipation for Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot had just about reached the limit on the scale of expectancy. Then the first trailer dropped at NYCC. And the scale all but busted — for the assembled fans at the Main Stage, at least.

From the very first shots, the film sets out its stall to be a bloodier, way more hellish, R-rated version of the Mike Mignola comic-book creation, compared to Guillermo Del Toro’s 2004 screen adaptation. According to our man who was there, you see David Harbour’s version of Red “pressing his hand cannon to an enemy soldier’s head and blowing his bloody brains right into the camera.”

Harbour described Mike Mignola’s work as “existential horror” so we can presumably expect to see something thoughtful that resonates with viewers, as well as a fair amount of blood and gore. And a sense of humour, of course. Oh, and Milla Jovovich as a badass Hela-esque Nimue the Blood Queen.

Spawning of a Title

Todd McFarlane Wants to Call His Superhero Reboot ‘Spawn… Do You Believe?’

Todd McFarlane took to the stage at NYCC to talk about the upcoming Spawn film set to star Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner — and revealed it’s yet to get the greenlight. The artist, writer, and Image Comics founder also announced the title he’s gunning for: Spawn… Do You Believe?

Because everyone in this movie is going to be going ‘I don’t even know if this even exists, or if it’s in my head, or if it’s a boogeyman, or if it’s physical’,” says McFarlane.

McFarlane’s Spawn reboot would be “a true, dark, nasty, R-rated superhero” film — but he says that Hollywood is “timid”. However, with special effects maestro and Walking Dead supremo Greg Nicotero on board as well as horror king Jason Blum, the film is looking increasingly like a valid proposition.

Shazam! Captures the Vibe of an ‘80s Classic

Zachary Levi Says ‘Shazam’ Reminds Him of ‘The Goonies’

Shazam! actor Zachary Levi took part in a Q&A in which he compared the upcoming Shazam! movie — the latest entry in the newly labelled Worlds of DC, due for release in 2019 – to 1980s kids’ classic The Goonies.

“It’s a lot of wish fulfilment and a lot of fun and a lot of heart and a lot of levity,” said Levi. “I don’t know if anyone else felt this way, but when I was watching it [the trailer]… it delighted me. I felt joy. I felt the way that I felt when I was a kid when I was watching The Goonies. There was something very adventure-y about it.”

We first got a taste of what Levi is talking about when the initial trailer dropped earlier this year. The trailer garnered positive comments from fans and critics praising the film’s comedy and tone.

Brace Yourself for a Saucy Take on Sabrina

So, Uhh, There’s Gonna Be a Witch Orgy in ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’

During the panel for teen-witch reboot The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Chance Perdomo, who plays Sabrina’s pansexual warlock cousin Ambrose in the series, let slip that there would be a full-on orgy in the show’s inaugural season. Kiernan Shipka, who plays Sabrina, added that it was witches only, with no mortals allowed. Recalling shooting the scenes, Perdomo said, “That was fun.”

The Dark Crystal Purists Are in for an Animatronic Treat

The New ‘Dark Crystal’ Netflix Series Won’t Use Any CGI

In 1982, Jim Henson released The Dark Crystal — a film that relied upon puppeteers and animatronics for its charming, and groundbreaking, look. A 10-part Netflix series based on the original film is currently in production and Lisa Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company and Jim Henson’s daughter, dropped into NYCC to chat about the upcoming series. She was joined by director of the series, called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Louis Leterrier, who ruled out the use of CGI.

“It’s puppets, man. It’s all puppets,” he said.  He went on to clarify that they mostly used old-school technology, but are using a green screen to remove the puppeteers in post-production.

Bane Is Coming to Gotham

Comic-book Bane breaking poor old Batman's back.

We recently wrote about wanting Bane to pop up in new Arrowverse show, Batwoman. But we’re more than happy to take an appearance in the final season of Gotham instead. Gotham has consistently proven itself to be one of DC’s most successful screen adaptations and its dark but kitschy tone is the perfect place to explore Bane’s villainous personality. Popularised among mainstream audiences by Tom Hardy’s performance in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, Bane will be played in Season 5 of Gotham by Shane West.

Showrunner John Stephens revealed that they’ll focus on his origin story. He said they wanted to “tell the story of how he was before he became Bane,” before adding that they “tied it to Jim’s backstory, in a way that I think is clearly different than canon, but I feel like it is like a tributary that then goes into the canon.”

In the storyline, Bane will fight with Alfred in a take on the classic Knightfall narrative in the comic books. Sean Pertwee, who plays Batman butler Alfred Pennyworth in the series, divulged, however, that it’s his character that gets his back broken rather than the Caped Crusader as per the comics. What a way to close the series.

First Look at Spock in Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Will be Filled With Mini-Mysteries

During the panel for Star Trek: Discovery, they wasted no time in giving the audience a glimpse at Season 2 in the form of the first trailer. The trailer contained a host of reveals to get fans excited, but none more so than the glimpse at the end of Ethan Peck’s Spock. We see the young Vulcan wheeled through on a medical bed before he’s injected in the neck and awakens suddenly. It’s especially exciting for the series because Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham – the show’s main character — is Spock’s half-sister.

Riverdale’s New Characters

‘Riverdale’ Showrunner Reveals Jughead’s Mum and Sister Arrive for Season 3

Ever since Season 2’s shock ending, which saw Archie arrested and thrown in prison, fans have been desperate to find out what Season 3 has in store. And with the Sabrina reboot — which is a property that in the comic books takes place in the same universe — also upon us, there’s been more speculation than ever that things are about to take a supernatural turn in Riverdale.

While we’re still waiting on confirmation of that, we did get news of some new characters about to enter the town. And they’ll be coming in the form of Jughead’s mum and sister — Gladys and Jellybean Jones. Adding to the show’s exceptionally strong older cast, Gladys will be played by Gina Gershon and looks set to shake things up. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also announced the arrival of comic-book favourite, Evelyn Evernever, while Madchen Amick revealed that her character Alice Cooper will be cosying up to a certain Edgar Evernever — Evelyn’s father and leader of a cult called The Farm.

Good Omens Will Diverge From the Book

The ‘Good Omens’ TV Series Has a Different Ending Than the Book

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett was always a match made in heaven. When they wrote the novel Good Omens, about an angel and demon teaming up to prevent Armageddon, together in 1990, a cult classic was born.

With the Amazon series based on that book set to air in 2019, Gaiman joined the series cast — Michael Sheen and David Tennant, no less — on stage at NYCC to launch the first trailer and answer a few pressing questions. With showrunner Gaiman revealing that he has “reconfigured” the ending.

“If I did [the book’s] ending, then the book story would end, and you’d still have half an hour of television while people said goodbye to each other,” he said. “Now there is a plot that takes until the final second of the final episode.”

Peter Jackson Shelved ‘Mortal Engines’ for 5 Years – Because of ‘The Hobbit’

The post The 10 Biggest Stories From New York Comic Con 2018 appeared first on FANDOM.



So Sad: 20 Killed in ‘Horrific’ Limousine Crash Involving Wedding Party in Upstate New York

Twenty people were killed when a limousine carrying a wedding party crashed into a car and bystanders outside an upstate Apple Barrel Country Store, according to New York State Police.

via NY Post:

Eighteen of the dead were traveling in the limo, while two were bystanders, a person with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press.

Two vehicles, including the limo carrying a wedding party, collided at an intersection in Schoharie ? about 35 miles west of Albany ? around 1:55 p.m. Saturday, according to New York State Police.

The SUV-style stretch limo was speeding downhill when it smashed into another vehicle, sending at least one of them careening into the parking lot of the Apple Barrel cafe, a popular spot for tourists taking in upstate’s fall foliage, according to the Albany Times Union.

“I heard a loud bang, [and] I came out my front door to see what was going on,” resident Bridey Finnagen told local ABC affiliate News 10. “I saw a lot of people here at the Apple Barrel out in the parking lot. Then I heard screaming.

“Then I saw this large van, a very unusual looking vehicle out here in Schoharie, in the bushes and really wrecked, hit a tree,” she continued.

The crash kicked off a huge emergency response that included six ambulances, three fire companies and two helicopters, the Times Union reported.

“The first responders broke some windows [on the vehicles] to try to get people out,” said Finnegan. “I believe the Jaws of Life were here on the side of one of the fire trucks.”

State police confirmed the deaths of 20 people at the scene, but would not provide any other details pending a 3 p.m. news conference.

The names of the deceased were not immediately released as state police worked through notifying their next-of-kin in the wake of the massive smash-up.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board are en route to investigate one of the deadliest vehicular accidents the region has seen in years.

Those fearing that a loved one may have been involved in the collision are urged to call the New York State Police at (877) 672-4911.

So sad.

The Panels We’re Stupidly Excited For at New York Comic-Con 2018

New York Comic-Con just gets better and better. And NYCC 2018 looks set to be the best yet, with a bunch of panels and events we’re beside ourselves with excitement to see. We’ve picked six miss-at-your-peril highlights to mark in your diaries.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

She-Ra re-envisioned for a new audience.

You don’t have to have been there first time around to get excited for the She-Ra reboot, but if She-Ra: Princess of Power or He-Man and the Masters of the Universe were your childhood fandoms, your thrill levels will be peaking, oh, right about NOW. On Thursday, October 4, showrunner of the Netflix Original Series, Noelle Stevenson, will present a first look at the all-new animated series, alongside Aimee Carrero who provides the voice of She-Ra, and Karen Fukuhara who voices fellow princess Glimmer. The series tells the story of Adora, an orphan who leaves the evil Horde behind upon discovering a magic sword that transforms her into mythical warrior princess, She-Ra.

But it’s not just the panel worth getting in a tizzy about. Dreamworks is also hosting an immersive fan experience claiming to transport all-comers to the planet of Etheria, Whispering Woods and Hordak’s Lair included.

WHEN? The Dreamworks She-Ra and the Princesses of Power panel takes place between 3-4pm on Thursday, October 4 at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Manhattan Center.

Find the fan experience at Booth 502.

American Gods (and Good Omens)

Ian McShane reprises his role as Mr Wednesday in American Gods Season 2.

The first season of American Gods was one of 2017’s TV highlights. It was indulgently slow but engrossing storytelling, with a deliciously charismatic central performance from Ian McShane as Mr Wednesday. It also looked glorious. Since it ended, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the second season of the TV adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel.

Dogged by behind-the-scenes issues which saw Season 1 showrunners Michael Green and Bryan Fuller exit, and with reports that replacement showrunner Jesse Alexander is being sidelined, fans will be looking for some reassurance that Season 2 is, well, going to be good.

Great to hear, then, that the much-celebrated author – who doubles as executive producer on the show — Gaiman will be in attendance at the NYCC panel to present an exclusive first look at Season 2. He’ll be joined by cast members effusing about how Season 2 ups the ante. Gaiman will also pop up again on Saturday, giving fans a glimpse of Good Omens with stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen – another panel totally worth checking out.

Like She-Ra, American Gods is also bringing an experiential treat for fans at NYCC. The Motel America Diner, one of the show’s key locations, is going to be painstakingly recreated. Littered with Easter Eggs, the diner also presents fans with the opportunity to bag some American Gods-themed swag — by making a sacrifice to the Gods, of course.

WHEN? The American Gods panel takes place between 1.30-2.30pm on Friday, October 5 at the Hammerstein Ballroom. The Good Omens panel is at 10am on Saturday, October 6 at the Madison Square Garden theater.


We’re just days away from Season 3 of Riverdale, and with so many theories swirling around what the next twist in Archie’s tale will bring, we’re looking to the NYCC panel to give us eager fans a deeper insight into how the third season will pan out. And if the opportunity to discover more early doors about TV’s maddest, darkest and most unflinchingly subversive teen show doesn’t fire you up to fever pitch, you need to get with the Riverdale programme pronto.

The panel will feature series cast and producers fielding questions, as well as a sneak peek at Season 3. The premiere will pick up immediately following that dramatic Season 2 finale in which we saw Archie thrown in prison, while ensuing episodes could see a cult influencing the inhabitants of Riverdale, and even zombies terrorising the town. Cannot. Wait.

WHEN? The Riverdale panel takes place between 10-11am on Sunday, October 7.

Mortal Engines

Peter Jackson fans will be champing at the bit for any insight whatsoever into Mortal Engines – and NYCC promises to deliver. Jackson himself will be on hand at the panel to answer questions put to him by moderator Andy Serkis, as well as – hopefully – questions from the audience. Jackson will be joined by members of the cast and production team – including director Christian Rivers, and partner and collaborator Fran Walsh — presenting the first eight minutes of footage from the film.

He’ll also be overseeing a detailed presentation of how the team brought a world to the screen in which mobile, motorised cities prey on other cities.

WHEN? The Mortal Engines panel takes place on Friday, October 5 at 12pm in the Hulu Theater, Madison Square Garden.

Netflix and Chills

In an obvious yet simultaneously genius play on the popular colloquial euphemism for something you’d actually probably describe as the opposite of relaxing in front of the telly, Netflix and Chills brings the scares to NYCC this October.

This panel sees the casts of upcoming Netflix shows The Haunting of Hill House, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Umbrella Academy assemble to chat all things supernaturally spooky about their respective series as Halloween creeps closer. It’s suitably seasonal, as well as giving you three shows in one to get excited about.

But wait, there’s more. The audience will also be treated to a first look at The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance before anyone else. Fans of the Jim Henson 1982 animatronic original won’t want to miss this.

WHEN? Netflix and Chills takes place between 7.30-10pm on Friday, October 5 on the Main Stage at the Javits Center.


David Harbour as Hellboy.

It’s been 10 years since Hellboy was last on the big screen. In Guillermo del Toro’s original 2004 movie and its 2008 sequel, Ron Perlman was the hench offspring of a demon and a witch otherwise known as Big Red. In Neil Marshall’s reboot, the role is taken over by Stranger Things star David Harbour. And a better fit it’s difficult to envisage.

Whispers suggest that the NYCC panel will give us our first glimpse of footage in the form of a trailer — presented by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, no less, alongside the cast including Harbour himself, plus Ian McShane fresh from his American Gods panel appearance, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim.

WHEN? The Hellboy panel takes place between 11am-12pm on Saturday, October 6 on the Main Stage at the Javits Center.

The best restaurants to try in New York City


New York is one of the most iconic cities in the world. When we say New York, we get a picture in our mind of streets bustling with beautifully dressed people, skyscrapers whose tops disappear into the sky, the Empire State Building, and of course, the timeless Times Square.
New York has always been known to be the center of commercial interactions and tourist visits. The city simply has a quality about it that takes your breath away. Living in New York City is an enriching experience and it seems as though it is always a step ahead of the rest of the world.
New York is also known for a number of things in addition to being a commercial destination. One of the things the city is known for is the rich mix of cuisines and the different types of food it offers.

Here are a few of the best restaurants in New York. Treat your taste buds by paying a visit to some of these restaurants when you are in town.

Ping Seafood

You may be surprised to know that this particular restaurant has been open since 1998. It was a hit back when it opened and continues its excellent service to this day. The Cantonese restaurant offers some exciting seafood dishes like noodles with lobster. Ping Seafood is a great place when you want to eat some good food in a lively environment with your near and dear ones.

Burger Joint

If you are craving some messy, delicious burgers, the Burger Joint is the perfect place for you. It serves some of New York’s best burgers and is definitely not a place to be missed. Their perfectly cooked beef patties, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and a generous serving of cheese placed between freshly baked buns is every meat lover’s fantasy.

The Grill

The Grill is always buzzing with people and it’s no wonder. The restaurant is well known for its stunning interiors, and the food which is just as amazing. The Grill’s interior is actually a revamp of the popular Four Seasons restaurant and the results are nothing less than breathtaking. People flock to this restaurant just for the dining experience alone, although the prime rib and the pasta a la presse are definitely items you should try in the menu. Do not forget to book your table in advance.


Would you believe it if we told you that this restaurant has been around for almost a century? Of course, the face of the restaurant has changed several times since 1917, but the food remains unmatched. The quaint restaurant always has a mixed crowd and sports a very elegant interior. Some of the most popular dishes include steak tartare and chicken. The Fedora is perfect for a casual night out, but it is also a great place if you want something fancy.
