Back in May, Activision/Infinity Ward announced they were bringing back the OG, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but a newer version of it. Today (July 18) we get our first glimpse at the forthcoming games new 2v2 “Gunfight” mode ahead of the August 1 Multiplayer Universe reveal event.

The return of the single-player campaign won’t be the only thing fans will be excited about. COD’s multiplayer is what has taken the game to astronomical heights, making it a worldwide phenomenon. In the 3:20 video, we get a glimpse of the “quick-action, close-quarters duo-based combat that is a blast to play and to watch.” The new game mode is described as only “fraction” of what’s coming to the rebooted Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer Universe.

Per Activision/Infinity Ward:

As players enlist in the heart-racing Modern Warfare story, multiplayer continues the experience as players head online into the ultimate playground for the global balance of power. Featuring unified progression across modes, Modern Warfare seeks to unite the community with plans to support cross-play across platforms and the removal of the traditional season pass in order to deliver a greater mix of more free maps, content and community events post-launch.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare already impresses ahead of its global October 25 release earning “Best Online Multiplayer” honors from the Game Critics Awards Best of E3 2019. If this is just a sample size of what to expect from the game’s multiplayer universe, we don’t doubt we will be blown away during the reveal event.

Hill City Athleisure Gear—Active Wear for the Modern Man

Whether you choose to call it “athleisure” or athletic wear, there’s no disputing that hoodies, run pants and shorts are wardrobe staples. Hill City aims to blaze its own path through the segment with an awesome line of versatile tech-wear designed for today’s active man. They’re stylish and comfortable clothes that blur the line between work wear, leisure wear, and sportswear.

“Men’s lives are evolving,” said Noah Palmer, former MLS player and General Manager of Hill City. “We no longer want to dress as either an ‘athlete’ or ‘outdoorsman’ or a ‘businessman’—we are all of those… We don’t want a different look for each aspect of our lives.”

With the unpredictable weather and challenging topography of San Francisco providing a fine testing ground—and a namesake—Hill City’s design team found ways to imbue the technical components of performance clothing into fashionable, comfortable essentials. The line fuses a clean aesthetic with technical innovations that are felt and experienced rather than seen. This approach allows men to purchase fewer, more versatile pieces.

What’s in Hill City?

Hill City launched late last year and is clearly poised to fall in line with popular athleisure brands such as Lululemon and Rhone. Water- and wrinkle-repellent workout shorts and moisture-wicking tee shirts are great for gym, trail, or street. And everyday options like slim fit pants (made with water-repellent fabric), thermal shirt jackets, and sweatshirts are made to go from beach to boardroom without fuss. The styles are clean and minimal, focusing mostly on neutral colors with the occasional pop of white, rust, or red.

Moisture-wicking fabrics, stretch components, subtle (or even hidden) zip pockets, and neutral colors and earth tones make up a stylish and simple but versatile and high-tech line of active gear, marked by sustainable materials and a ton of real-world R&D.

Hill City is a high-performance men’s apparel brand offering technical clothing that transitions seamlessly through the day, from workout to work to weekend. Sign up today for the Hill City newsletter and get $ 20 off your first purchase.

Native Son Gets An Afropunk Update In Rashid Johnson’s Modern ‘Reinterpretation’

How first-time director and visual artist Rashid Johnson reinterpreted Richard Wright’s classic Black novel ‘Native Son’ for 2019.
News

How to Get Zachary Levi’s Modern Pompadour Hairstyle

Zachary Levi is soaring to new heights in Shazam!, as the reluctant superhero of the same name who steadily comes to terms with his newfound powers. And when he came to set for our April cover shoot, Levi seemed none too reluctant about his stellar sky-high pompadour. His Hollywood hairline is a power he’s been wielding for years, and this style is easily adaptable for guys with similar hair structure.

Here’s how you can get it for yourself—and how to maintain Levi’s lived-in scruff, too. We got insight on both from Bradley Smith, creative director of his eponymous London salons Bradley Smith Hair at both Heathrow and Sofitel Heathrow.


Ready for Takeoff: How Zachary Levi Went From Hollywood Outsider to Big-Screen Superhero

The Type of Hair You Need to Pull Off the Look

Smith says this pompadour quiff works well with many types of hair textures—you just might have your own unique variation on it—like slightly less volume or bounce.

“Wavy, medium-density hair is the best suited for this look,” he adds. “In this case, you can work with your hair’s natural movement in creating texture and volume, which is fundamental for the lift in the quiff. However, too much weight in the front will cause the quiff to collapse.”

He notes thinner hair will be easier to style, but lacks the natural texture, volume, and buoyancy that define this style. Curly hair is tougher, too, although Smith says you can work with your natural growth patterns and modify it in a way that suits you.

Most importantly, Smith encourages men with receding hairlines to avoid the style “at all costs”: “It will ultimately expose your recession points, as hair is pushed up and back over,” he says.

What to Tell Your Barber

Smith says to ask for a #2 buzz around the back and sides. “Or you can opt for the scissor over comb method for a softer, more natural approach,” he says. “You want to keep around three inches in length up top to create the lift in the fringe, however, too much weight in the front will cause the hairstyle to collapse.”

Then, up top, the barber should use texturizing shears to add some dimension to the style. This won’t compromise the overall length, though.


How to Get Matthew McConaughey’s Signature Wavy Hairstyle

He or she will then need to blend the sides: “This will create a subtle contrast, but maintain the classic appearance,” Smith says. “It’s important to keep the style in proportion, which is achieved by cutting the overall crown shorter than the fringe in front.” It helps emphasize the height of the pompadour.

How to Maintain the Cut

“Visit your stylist every four to five weeks,” Smith says. “You’ll clean-up the sides, remove excess weight from the top, and retexture it.” He warns that any neglect to get it cleaned up at proper intervals will only cause the weight in front to fall flat.

How to Style Your Look

Start with towel-dried, slightly damp hair. Then, give it a few spritzes with some sea salt spray (try Bumble and bumble Surf Spray), as a pre-styling agent. “This will give your hair volume and provide additional hold throughout the day, as well as flexibility in styling,” Smith says.

Next, blow it dry, and use a vent brush (like Baasha Medium Vent Brush) to push your hair up and over. Smith says to follow your hair’s natural growth pattern. “Blow-drying this fringe will create the shape and the roundness of the pompadour quiff.”


How to Get Justin Theroux’s Tousled Hair and Beard Style

Apply a matte paste (we like Imperial Matte Pomade Paste) to finish—just a dime-sized amount to start. You can add more as needed. Warm it up in your palms to activate it, then apply it through the hair starting from the back of the crown, moving forward to the fringe (this adds lift, instead of pressing it down from the front and moving back). Target the roots: “This will provide added control over your style,” Smith says. “Use your fingers to add texture by working with your hair’s natural movement.”

Then, to actually sculpt the quiff, Smith says to work with the shape that you formed with the hair dryer and brush; the hair should still want to naturally fall this way since you only recently set it. Now, work it all back into place, to create the height. A final light coat of hairspray (try Sexy Hair Play Dirty Dry Wax) should preserve its hold all day.

How to Get Levi’s Stubble

A stubbled face paired with the quiff gives an overall low-maintenance style, says Smith. The scruff complements an otherwise classic hairstyle, and together they create definition and a bit of grit.

Smith says to trim every other day to maintain this length, and focus on keeping a clean neckline each time. Shave or trim it all the way down, to avoid a neckbeard.

And, as a bonus tip: Be sure to hydrate the skin here, just as you moisturize the entire face. “This will also encourage strong hair growth, keeping ingrown hairs away,” Smith says.

3 Easy, Modern Ways (and a Mustang) to Channel Steve McQueen’s Classic ‘Bullitt’ Style

Think about the coolest, most stylish film you’ve ever seen. Chances are, Bullitt and Steve McQueen come to mind. Sure, the car gets tons of the attention, but McQueen’s wearable apparel has become just as iconic as the kickass Mustang he drove in the 1968 film, complete with epic car chases, a fast-paced tour of San Francisco, and plenty of style lessons any guy can take and make his own.

 

 

Ford recently brought back a new version of the Bullitt just in time to celebrate the release of the flick, and the 2019 model combines some of the original’s design cues with a modern twist.


50 Years of Bullitt: Taking the Ford Mustang Bullitt for a Spin Around San Francisco

And now, years after McQueen took the wheel on screen, we think his character’s style still holds up, too. The pieces Frank Bullitt wears are hands down some of the coolest you’ll see in any movie, but you don’t have to own the exact pieces to follow his lead.

Here, we came up with a few simple ways to give your wardrobe a modern McQueen-like upgrade—some a simple nod; other pieces, nearly identical to Frank Bullitt’s outfits—that you should be able to get miles out of for years down the road.

And if you’re sticking to a budget? You won’t spend more than around $ 250 for most of this gear (Bullitt not included).

The Shoes

Astorflex Greenflex Boots

Taking a walk in McQueen’s shoes just got a little more possible. You won’t find a better fit than these casual Astorflex boots that nail the perfect balance of things you can wear to work or the bar. And luckily, our friends at Huckberry have you covered.

[$ 150; huckberry.com]

The Outerwear

Flint and Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

Because you’re not going to want to wear a blazer with elbow patches everywhere you go. (If you want to spring for a full suit, we like this Polo Ralph Lauren option, patches and all.) While you can’t go wrong with McQueen’s dressed-up attire, this versatile jacket nails his simple, timeless vibe. Its subtle color won’t take attention away from your new Mustang Bullitt, plus it’ll keep you warm when those California temperatures dip thanks to the flannel lining. Not to mention, its waxed coating will stand up to just about everything up ahead—epic car chases included.

[$ 220; huckberry.com]

The Basics

Flint and Tinder 10 Year Crew Sweater; Proof 72-Hour Merino LS Tee

So a stylish turtleneck might not be your everyday go-to layer for driving fast cars—or getting stuck in rush hour traffic on your daily work commute. A solid navy sweater or crewneck tee will do the trick just fine, and they’ll still help you achieve McQueen’s look without making you want to stretch out your collar to get some extra breathing room. During the winter months, opt for the sweater, which you can wear on its own or under your jacket. For the rest of the year, go for something a little on the lighter side, like this Proof 72-Hour Merino top.

FRANKENSTEIN or The Modern Prometheus (The Revised 1831 Edition – Wisehouse Classics) – Mary Shelley

FRANKENSTEIN or The Modern Prometheus (The Revised 1831 Edition – Wisehouse Classics)

Mary Shelley

Genre: Theater

Publish Date: November 26, 2015

Publisher: Wisehouse

Seller: Ingram DV LLC


This is the Revised 1831 Edition of FRANKENSTEIN; OR, THE MODERN PROMETHEUS, a novel written by the English author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley about the young science student Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque but sentient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was eighteen, and the novel was published when she was twenty. The first edition was published anonymously in London in 1818. Shelley's name appears on the second edition, published in France in 1823. Shelley had travelled through Europe in 1814, journeying along the river Rhine in Germany with a stop in Gernsheim which is just 17 km away from Frankenstein Castle, where, two centuries before, an alchemist was engaged in experiments. Later, she travelled in the region of Geneva (Switzerland)-where much of the story takes place-and the topic of galvanism and other similar occult ideas were themes of conversation among her companions, particularly her lover and future husband, Percy Shelley. Mary, Percy, Lord Byron, and John Polidori decided to have a competition to see who could write the best horror story. After thinking for days, Shelley dreamt about a scientist who created life and was horrified by what he had made; her dream later evolved into the novel's story. Shelley completed her writing in May 1817, and Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus was first published on 11 March 1818 by the small London publishing house of Lackington, Hughes, Harding, Mavor, & Jones. The second edition of Frankenstein was published on 11 August 1822 in two volumes (by G. and W. B. Whittaker) following the success of the stage play Presumption; or, the Fate of Frankenstein by Richard Brinsley Peake; this edition credited Mary Shelley as the author. On 31 October 1831, the first "popular" edition in one volume appeared, published by Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley. This edition was heavily revised by Mary Shelley, partially because of pressure to make the story more conservative, and included a new, longer preface by her, presenting a somewhat embellished version of the genesis of the story. This edition tends to be the one most widely read now, although editions containing the original 1818 text are still published. Many scholars prefer the 1818 text, arguing that it preserves the spirit of Shelley's original publication.

Apple Music aims to strike modern lifestyle chord

"All of these companies have a huge head start on Apple and Apple will have to convince users to switch," said Edison Investment Research analyst Richard Windsor. Apple Music will do likewise, while also adding real people who design playlists based on artists or genres.

Modern Art

Two teenagers were on a tour of a modern art gallery. They suddenly found themselves alone in a room of modern sculpture and were staring at the
twisted pipes, broken glass, and tangled shapes.

One of them exclaimed, “We had better get out of here before they accuse us of wrecking this place!”

This ‘4D-Printed’ Dress Just Became Part Of The Museum Of Modern Art’s Collection

The Kinematics dress, created by generative design studio Nervous System, is, in all cliches, not your average piece of fabric. For starters, the Museum of Modern Art recently acquired the fashionable objet d’art, along with the app that goes with it, adding it to the institute’s growing collection of contemporary design products. Secondly, the dress is made from four dimensional printing technologies, meaning it’s a 3D-printed object meant to “change shape or automatically reassemble” according to its environment.

dress

Nervous System (est. 2007), Jessica Rosenkrantz (American, born 1983), Jesse Louis-Rosenberg (American, born 1986). Kinematics Dress. 2013. Laser-sintered nylon. Image courtesy of Steve Marsel. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Committee on Architecture and Design Funds.

“We refer to Kinematics as a 4D printing system because it generates compressed objects that unfold into their intended shape after printing,” creative director Jessica Rosenkrantz told Dezeen. “The garments that we’ve designed can only expand to their full size after being removed from the printer and they do so automatically, no assembly is required.”

skirt

The dress is composed of thousands of interlocking pieces (2,279 unique triangular panels interconnected by 3,316 hinges, to be exact), taking the shape of a single folded nylon garment. The dress is entirely customizable, and is able to conform and move according to a body’s flexibility. “This textile is not uniform,” Nervous System explains, “it varies in rigidity, drape, flex, porosity and pattern through space.”

The coordinating app allows anyone to design a Kinematics work, printed by Shapeways, “from an uploaded 3D body scan, selecting the size and shape of the modules and ‘painting’ them onto the dress or skirt in real-time,” C-Net writes. Not only are the resulting garments verifiable works of art, they are part of a movement that seemingly democratizes the way we produce boundary-pushing fashion.

dress back

The Kinematics dress will go on view at MoMA as part of the upcoming “This Is for Everyone: Design Experiments for the Common Good,” debuting on February 14, 2015. The title of the show takes its name from British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee — you know, the inventor of the World Wide Web — who tweeted the message as part of the Olympic opening ceremonies in London in 2012. While Berners-Lee’s quote emphasizes the possibilities of information sharing across the internet, “This Is for Everyone” questions the sentiment through a series of design products that challenge the universality of that potential.

“We sometimes forget that new technologies are not inherently democratic,” MoMA wrote in a press release for the exhibition. “Is design in the digital age — so often simply assumed to be for the greater good — truly for everyone?”

You can see a preview of the other pieces on view in the exhibition below.
