"My Generation" tells the inspiring story of the pop culture explosion in 1960s through the eyes of Britain’s greatest living movie actor. Michael Caine introduces the film in the buttoned up, monochrome heart of London at the start of the 1960s, in a world blighted by economic hardship with WW2 rationing having ended only six years earlier. In 1960s London a new generation has come of age. They’re energised, rebellious and hopeful. It’s these young men and women, particularly the working class, that were to have a huge impact on popular culture as barriers collapsed and the world headed into the most tumultuous decade of the century. The documentary transforms into glorious technicolour as the cultural revolution gathers momentum and we’re enveloped in the kinetic world of London in the mid-1960s, an era marked by the rise of Beatlemania, the first star photographers, film makers and advertisers, creative people who embrace the exploding world of mass media with astonishing results.

The New Generation of Watchmaker: Cameron Weiss on Building an American-Made Brand

Cameron Weiss, the founder of Weiss Watch Company, was only five years old when he first started taking apart watches. Of course, back then he didn’t have the ability to put them back together. Instead, they would be rendered into a pile of debris, so when family or friends had a piece that had run its course, they would hand it off to him with no expectation of getting it back.

“I would just sit there and dismantle any piece that I could get my hands on,” says Weiss from his workshop headquarters. Those pieces weren’t exactly of the highest caliber, but they helped ignite a fascination with the tiny mechanisms. “I didn’t know that there were people who actually got to put them together as a job.”

Since then Weiss has come a long way, all the way to Switzerland and back, where he honed his craft inside prestigious houses like Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. That experience, paired with an apprentice-style education under Swiss watchmakers, gave Weiss all the tools he needed to open his own watch company out of California.

Men’s Journal spoke with Weiss on becoming a watchmaker, being a tradesman in the digital age, his Crown & Caliber-backed podcast Watch and Listen, and building an American-made brand.

How did you first learn about watchmakers?
My parents asked me to help them buy a watch for my brother as a present. They didn’t know too much, and they knew how much I was crazy about them. I came across this collector while I was shopping around and ended up talking with him quite a bit. He was the one who first told me about the watchmakers in Switzerland, he had been there and visited some of the factories. I was amazed by the stories of people actually hand-making and polishing the parts.

How did you start training to become one?
I found out from a family friend that there were watchmaking schools, and a certain program called WOSTEP [Watchmakers Of Switzerland Training And Education Program]. They operate with a Swiss curriculum, and while most are in Europe, there are three very small ones in the United States. They cap it at eight students for two years full-time. There was almost no book reading. It was all hands on. Two Swiss watchmakers and the head of the program fly in to grade your final tests. Getting the call that I passed was one of the best phone calls I have ever gotten.

What came for you next?
One of our instructors worked for Audemars Piguet, and I got a job offer from them right after the test. They flew me out to Switzerland, to Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux, just north of Geneva. It is the watchmaking capitol of the world. I had never been to Switzerland at the time; I had only seen photos and read about it. They drove me through the mountains, through this little village where Audemars has taken over pretty much all of the buildings. Every one of these beautiful, farm-style buildings is working on some part of their watches or built around the workers. I got to walk through the factories and see all of the people assembling or doing complex repairs. There is one special restoration workshop where these very experienced hands are able to work on almost any piece that Audemars ever made. Plenty of antique tools that they don’t even make any more, some of the machines are still manual. It was a life-changing trip. I got the chance to go back when I started working for Vacheron Constantin, and stayed there for a couple of months. I got to train in complex watches with them, which meant I got to explore quite a bit more.

Did you ever plan on living out there?
The idea of starting my own watch line was always in the back of my head, and I thought that I would have to live in Switzerland to do it. That was just the way it had always been done. I was waiting for my French to get good enough, and to get enough contacts, but while I was working at the Vacheron boutique on Rodeo doing repairs on old pieces, I realized that I could do it right here in California.

How did that realization come to you?
I had already started making watches for myself, and I would wear them whenever I wasn’t at the boutique. People stopped and complimented them or asked where I had gotten them. I would attend these pop-up events for American denim lines, which were full of people who cared about craftsmanship and aren’t an electronic watch crowd. But they weren’t going to spend thousands on a Swiss timepiece either, so what they needed was a product that had all the mechanics while keeping the cost reasonable.

How did you start building?
I bought a whole workshop from the widow of a watchmaker. It was an amazing collection and I was honored to get it. I still have his workbench and a lot of the tools I got from him. There are so many tiny hand tools that are tailor made for just one precise purpose. Pin vices, screw drivers, and just gripping parts while you work on it. The tools have to be in perfect condition, because you can damage the piece if it hasn’t been taken care of expertly.

What problems did you come across?
The biggest issue was finding local manufacturers and machine shops that would help make the raw parts. For my own watches, I had been doing everything on my own, with my own hands, but to make a run properly I needed to find people that could help with that part of the process. There were many months driving around meeting with shops in the Los Angeles area. There were a lot of companies that just wrote me off, but there were a few that were excited by the idea. Many of these companies hand never made watch parts before—they were making gear for cars and planes, and so it was a completely new business for them as well. Some of them we still work with to this day.

How did you go about designing the look of your watches?
I wanted to create a brand that was distinctly American. I was a diver growing up and have spent a lot of time in the ocean. I worked for a company that built underwater camera housings before I started making watches. That job not only gave me access to CNC machines but also this beautiful and complicated diving gear. During that experience I discovered this love for old dive equipment and antique gauges. That, along with a fascination with aviation instruments, influenced my design for my first Field Watch.

How has the watch industry changed since you have been in it?
I think the watch industry has become a lot more fun than it was say five years ago when we first started. Everything was done a certain way and there weren’t a lot of the younger brands that exist now, not just outside of Switzerland but also inside of the country. People are starting to understand that you can buy a watch that isn’t a Rolex and that can have its very own cool factor. They are much more open to having a diverse collection with new names in it, which can be discovered in new marketplaces like Crown & Caliber.

What are the benefits of sites like Crown & Caliber?
One of the really cool benefits is it is a great way to find old watches outside of the standards we usually see. There is a really unique selection on there from brands that had been sort of lost to history. They are the kind that could become your favorite new piece, one that turns heads, and before Crown & Caliber, you may have never known it existed. I remember while doing an episode of our Watch and Listen podcast they sent us a white gold Blancpain where the case back opened up to reveal a sapphire. Nobody produces anything like that anymore.

Now you do a podcast with them as well. Why did you want to create Watch and Listen?
I enjoy getting to do the podcast because for so long I was only focused on what I was doing and the watches that I was making. The show gives me an opportunity to really look at what others are doing in the industry and that makes me an even better watchmaker. For most of the episodes, Crown & Caliber will send us a batch of pieces that I get to play around with, and because we also shoot on video, I can show people what is going on inside of them. Some of the pieces I have been really thrilled to get my hands on. They sent us the JLC Duometre Chronograph, which is just an unbelievable and gorgeous watch. One of the most beautiful things I have seen in person.

Have you found a lot of young people interested in becoming watchmakers?
I take apprentices in, which has been a great experience, to help me with the production. I don’t get as many as I would hope for. I think it’s tough in Los Angeles with the cost of living so high. People are interested in it, but they don’t have the time to really invest in building the skillset. There have been some successes still though, one of the guys I had working for me has gone on to start his own company. I can only hope that more and more makers will start up here in the United States. That is one of the main goals I have: to create an infrastructure to have more watches made here.

Now that you have your own workshop, outside of your apartment, what does a day look like for you?
I have a Sprinter van that we have set up for camping that I drive to the workshop. I love the walk through the back, roll up doors in the morning, seeing all the raw materials laid out ready for the machine shop. I have to be extremely diligent at not sitting down at the computer to look at emails or check my phone when it buzzes. So instead I will write a note to get organized and stay away from the laptop. I enjoy having that quiet time to myself in the workshop, getting time at the bench.
I always have a coffee to sip while building; there are so many great roasters around here. I have made a lot of friends in the coffee industry over the years. I will lay out all the parts of a piece in front of me, ready for assembly, and play some music while I work. Finishing one can take a few days, but I love it.

What is the best part of your job?
The most rewarding part is seeing a watch that you built out in the wild, whether it is at a car show or on the street. I will usually try to say hello, or ask them where they got it. One morning I drove up next to a guy at a traffic light and I saw one of my pieces on his wrist. I have to say that made me smile.

Fredro Starr & Keith Murray To Battle At Generation X This October

It’s been over a year since the unfortunate cancellation of the highly-anticipated battle between veteran rap legends Fredro Starr and Keith Murray. Now, the Generation X event will take place this October in Brooklyn, New York, altering the typical modern battle rap format just a tad.

Generation X was put together by Atlanta-based battle rap league M.C. W.A.R., and the organizers have corrected the issues of last year while bringing the clash to the hometown of the warring artists. The hype building up to this battle was immense before, and has grown back to its original pitch. Adding to the excitement, the battle will be streamed online for those fans who won’t be able to make it to New York.

From M.C. W.A.R.:

Celebrating this historic event and promoting the culture to a worldwide audience, the battle will be live streamed free on AllHipHop. Originally scheduled to take place in Atlanta last year, the event is now being hosted in the birthplace of hip-hop. “Thousands of fans  disappointment the battle wasn’t being hosted here initially, so during process of reorganizing the project it made sense that it take place New York City,” says Amir James, M.C. W.A.R.’s Chief Officer.

In a departure from today’s battle culture, where rappers go up  each other a cappella, this “Generation X” event features veteran DJ  radio personality DJ ENUFF spinning music from Grammy-winning producer MAGNEDO7. Each rapper gets two verses—16 bars apiece— per beat. Referees will count the bars and make sure the emcees give each other ample space when rapping.

Several of Fredro Starr and Keith Murray’s peers will be in attendance and have chimed in on the upcoming battle, including Lord Jamar, Fame [MOP], Peter and Cory Gunz, Sadat X and this particularly vicious commentary from 50 Cent.

The battle is being documented by legendary New York music host Ralph “Uncle Ralph” McDaniels [Video Music Box] in addition to a range of invited media and special guests.

For tickets and more info, follow this link. It all goes down October 4, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. ET.

Check out the trailer for the Generation X battle between Fredro Starr of Onyx fame, and Keith Murray of the Def Squad camp below.

Who do you have in this battle, Fredro or Keith? Sound off in the comments.

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.

How Jackie Kennedy’s Favorite Irish Designer Paved the Way for a Generation

Sybil Connolly

Fashion doesn’t top the list of things that Ireland, that Emerald Isle, is known for—linen and lace, moss-topped cottages, and talents like James Joyce, Yeats, and Maud Gonne. Sybil Connolly, a favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy, who Vogue once described as “the vitamin C of the Erin-go-Couture movement,” was the first to put Irish design on the map when she showed her designs on a summer’s eve in 1953 at Dunsany Castle.

In 1956, Connelly developed her signature look: horizontal, hand-pleated, taffeta-backed handkerchief linen. So fine were these pleats that it took nine yards of fabric to create just one of the pleated material. Connolly was a romantic designer with a mission to incorporate native materials, like Carrickmacross lace and Donegal tweeds, into a feminine silhouette. Kennedy also deemed them suitable for the White House, selecting one of Connolly’s linen outfits for her 1970 official portrait by Aaron Shikler. More lasting than Connelly’s designs, though, lovely as they are, is her legacy, one that has enabled the careers of such breakout Irish runway stars as Simone Rocha and J.W.Anderson.

The post How Jackie Kennedy’s Favorite Irish Designer Paved the Way for a Generation appeared first on Vogue.

Gender Fluid Generation: Evolving Gender Norms at School


Originally published on, the premier source for youth generated news throughout the globe.

By: Nanette Thompson

The first time I learned that gender could be fluid was in sex ed in the 9th grade. I remember the teacher mumbling under her breath that some people don’t identify their gender with the biological sex they were born with. At the time it didn’t phase me because I’d never known anyone who’d talked about it or felt that way. But now, three years later, I have a 16-year-old classmate who’s trans. His name is Jace McDonald.

“That is the name I have chosen,” said Jace. “It’s what my parents would have named me if I was born biologically male.”

Jace McDonald was born female. But says he always knew there was something different about him. He didn’t like so called girl things, and more than that, he felt like a boy. At 13, he started identifying as transgender, and has become something of an activist.

“Never ask someone who’s trans what their real name is,” he said. “That is so offensive. My real name is Jace. And my birth name is none of your business.”

Jace has thick glasses and short brown hair, and he’s outspoken at school. One time in English class when a teacher stumbled over gender terminology, Jace stepped in to clarify and ended up teaching a whole lesson himself. He sometimes finds himself fed up. “High school is hard enough as it is,” he said.” High school as someone who is non-gender conforming just makes it harder. How many times today am I going to be called a girl?”

In many ways, it seems like gender non-conformity awareness is at all-time high. Last week Congressman Mike Honda announced via Twitter that he was the “proud grandpa of a transgender grandchild.” And according to new polling out last month, young people increasingly see gender as not just limited to male and female. But the torchbearers of gender fluidity aren’t just celebrities or politicians, but kids. But schools are still catching up with the needs of gender nonconforming students. Last year, California’s first law protecting gender nonconforming students went into effect. It gives Jace the right to use the bathroom of his choice.

Last month, Jace and I walked down the hall of the high school that we both attend. He stopped and pointed to set of doors that are our main bathrooms on campus. He says when he uses the bathroom between classes that kids occasionally give him strange looks.

“So if I walk in there are there are people already in there, I’m more likely to hold it and just go to my next class,” he said.

It seems rough, but Jace says this is way better than he used to have it. He’s a junior now, and this is his first year at my school. He’s gone to two other high schools and left because he was taunted and called names like tranny. He says, the schools didn’t let him use the boy’s bathroom, and insisted on keeping his birth name on the roster. At my school, he says he finally feels safe.

Just a few towns away at Malcolm X Elementary School, teachers start addressing gender identity at a young age, with the goal of making school more safe and inclusive. One of the students there, third Grader Tomás Rocha has shoulder length hair and long bangs. He’s wearing a turquoise My Little Pony t-shirt  with black flats. A lot of days he wears dresses, and last year he started using the girls bathroom. Tomás says people regularly ask him if he’s a boy or a girl.

“I just really think i’m really both,” said Tomás. “I really don’t care what people call me . Sometimes I say I’m a girl. Sometimes I say I’m a boy. Sometimes I say does it really matter?”

However, it mattered to his mom Amy. She struggled with Tomás’s gender bending. And at first hoped it was a phase. “His first grade teacher told me that, ‘Yeah I don’t know if this is a phase,'” she said. “And so that scared me because I wanted it to be a phase, because I didn’t want to have to have my child hurt. I wanted him to be what society wants a baby boy to be like when they’re born. You know, tough and want to play sports.

Her concerns came from her fear of Tomás  might get bullied.It’s something Tomás’s teacher Julia Beers also thinks about. Beers was Tomás’ second grade teacher last year — the first year he started wearing dresses to school. When students question Tomás, Beers tries to assume the best — that her students are curious and not trying to be mean. Like when she overhears a student say to Tomás, “Did you know you were wearing a dress to school today?”

“If a student is laughing for example, I might say,  ‘Hmm what are you thinking when you laugh like that?'” she said. “And by opening up that question, it can often help that student kinda dig deeper and realize ‘It just seems weird’ or ‘I feel uncomfortable’ or ‘I’ve just never seen someone do that before.'”

According to the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, 82 percent of transgender young people say they don’t feel safe at school.  Struggles, like the ones my high school classmate Jace has been through, are the norm.

For Tomás though, his elementary school’s efforts seem to be working. His mom says his grades and behavior improved after he was given more freedom to be himself.
