Sander Lak of Sies Marjan Makes Whirlwind Stop in Chicago

Sander Lak’s secret to juggling a nonstop schedule? Time management, but also, “a Diet Coke, a piece of chocolate and some licorice.” “It’s like a push and pull I have to do this but I also have to do 50 other things that are equally important,” said Lak, the designer behind the New York-based Sies Marjan. “It’s literally nonstop. It’s never one thing. It’s always 50 things at one time.”
The designer jetted to Chicago to host a cocktail reception Friday evening at The Gwen for 10 of Nordstrom’s best customers, top-level members of Nordy Club, the retailer’s loyalty program. The cocktail was followed by a fashion show at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue, showcasing 12 looks from the collection.
Lak wanted to spend the weekend in the Windy City, doing touristy stuff, like the architecture boat tours, but due to his busy schedule, that will have to wait until a trip planned for September.
“I have to split my time, not only my time, but my energy,” said Lak, whose current to-do list includes working on the women’s show in September, women’s shoes, the women’s collection for December, men’s collection for January, women’s show in February, collaborations and marketing. “I have an amazing team

People Keep Telling Me to Stop Blogging about North Korea

My critics have been extra vocal lately in saying I should stop writing about North Korea because I have no expertise in that area. So I decided to talk about North Korea some more. Today I’ll tell you how to end North Korea’s nuclear ambitions at a reasonable cost.

The entire GDP for North Korea is under $ 13 billion. China’s trade with North Korea is valued at under $ 3 billion per year. An article in Newsweek recently said most of that trade involves only ten Chinese companies. South Korea pays close to $ 1 billion per year to support U.S. troops there. I think we pay at least that much too. And that’s not counting navy assets in the area, I assume.

The South Korean military budget hovers around $ 40 billion. The U.S. military budget is over $ 600 billion per year. And North Korea is our biggest threat to the homeland. We could make all ten Chinese companies financially whole by allocating .005 of the military budget to paying them to find new suppliers and new markets. We might even become those new suppliers and markets in some cases.

As I often say in this blog, the key to deal-making is that the parties need to want different things. The Chinese companies trading with North Korea want profits, and the United States wants security. That’s the perfect set-up for a deal. The deal looks like this: “Take our money for ten years (only), stop trading with North Korea, and find new suppliers and customers, or we’ll turn out your lights with cyberattacks that look like they came from Russia.”

That’s the first-draft version. We can probably tighten that up a bit with lawyers and stuff.

Obviously this plan doesn’t work if the real problem is that the Chinese government wants to keep the North Korean nuclear threat the way it is. But that line of thinking never sounded credible to me. I’m also a bit skeptical that the Chinese fear mass immigration if North Korea falls apart. That seems like a smaller problem than nuclear war on the peninsula. But I could be wrong about that.

I could also be wrong about everything else in this post. I’m not an expert on North Korea. But as an American citizen, I have the right to wonder aloud why my government is skipping the cheap, non-military option for pressuring North Korea. If the government wants public support for whatever option they end up taking, it would help to keep citizens better informed than we are now, including me. 

You might enjoy reading my book because I am not an expert on North Korea.

I’m also on…

Sara is a young girl raised in a family of goat farmers. Her parents homeschool their twelve children, rigorously following the precepts of the Bible. Like her sisters, Sara is taught to be a devout woman, subservient to men while keeping her emotional and physical purity intact until marriage. When Sara meets Colby, a young amateur bull rider, she is thrown into crisis, questioning the only way of life she has ever known. In a stunning portrayal of contemporary America and the insular communities that dot its landscape, Stop the Pounding Heart is an exploration of adolescence, family and social values, gender roles, and religion in the rural American South.

We Can’t Stop Watching This Epic ‘Operation: Save The Date’ Video

Just when we think we’ve hit saturation point with viral wedding videos, something comes along and surprises us.

Tyler Macniven and Kelly Hennigan announced their wedding date with “Operation: Save The Date,” an epic “Mission Impossible”-style adventure short. On a quest to save an envelope containing their wedding date, the happy couple snorkels through the ocean and battles enemies with garters, a bomb-rigged wedding cake and a bridal bouquet.

“We love a good pun,” Macniven explained to The Huffington Post. He says the couple came up with the idea while on a run in the Marin Headlands near San Francisco.

Parts of the video were shot with a DJI Phantom Vision 2+ drone, capturing the stunning sweep of San Francisco Bay.

Macniven said the cast are all “good family and friends who we bribed to help using sandwiches and champagne,” which took up most of the $ 400 budget. The bride’s brother is a former WWE wrestler and played a supporting role as Thug #1.

Macniven, who runs the West of Pecos restaurant in San Francisco, is no stranger to the camera himself. He made a documentary about walking the length of Japan, and won Season 9 of “The Amazing Race” with a friend.

Hennigan is completing a PhD program in cognitive neuroscience at Stanford University.

Macniven says they’ll bring the same adventurous spirit in the video to the wedding itself: “Instead of a cake cutting, we’re going to have the traditional cake explosion, where we blow up a giant wedding cake.”

What’s more, he says, wedding guests will have to sign liability waivers for the “secret hijinks” they have planned.

We can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves.

Laws to Stop Marriage Equality Grow Increasingly Weird

Texas is pushing a proposed law that would let the state overrule the Supreme Court. There’s just one problem: they can’t actually do that. Alabama judges have decided that they don’t have to obey federal courts either, except that in reality, they do. And Oklahoma politician wants to switch from marriage licenses to marriage certificates, which would accomplish … not very much.

Let’s start in Texas this week, where first time State Rep Molly White has introduced a bill that would require the state to ignore any Supreme Court ruling that legalized marriage.

Can she do that? Nope, that’s not how laws work. Or the Supreme Court. Or America in general. For better or for worse, Texas is still part of the United States, so Texas can’t just say “no thanks” when the Supreme Court tells them to do something. White’s only been in office for two months, so hopefully she’ll get the hang of it soon.

Over in Alabama, the state Supreme Court is experiencing similar confusion. They’ve ordered probate judges to ignore the federal ruling that they have to issue marriage licenses. So now it’s state law versus federal law, and nobody knows who will win. Just kidding! Federal law will win. That’s the basis of our entire legal system.

Then there’s South Carolina, where a couple of politicians want to amend the US Constitution to ban marriage equality. This has no chance of happening. But State Senator Larry Grooms says that it’s necessary for “the propagation of our species.” Contrary to what Grooms seems to think, reproduction does not, in fact, originate in the U.S. Constitution.

And in Oklahoma, State Rep Todd Ross has solved the marriage debate with a new bill that stops the state from issuing marriage licenses, and instead requires marriage certificates. And this is different because … well, it’s actually pretty much the same, it’s just slightly less paperwork. So, okay.

Finally this week a new national survey shows support for marriage soaring to 59 percent, with just 33 percent opposed. This means that the freedom to marry is slightly more popular than the Pope.

Stop Reacting, Start Creating: The TNG2 Manifesto

2015-02-25-photo.JPG

Zack Rosen is the former Editor-in-Chief of defunct queer culture site TheNewGay.net.

If catching up after a sick day is merely stressful, the cleanup for a few sick years feels positively herculean. I find myself in 2015 grossly familiar with where I’ve been. So like Charlie Brown and his football, I’m putting my trust back into the internet and hoping for connection. I’m asking for help in figuring out where I’m going.

I put so much of myself online, for so long, that I woke up one day in 2011 with nothing left. I spent the year following as a couch cushion, a soft fixture of my own red velvet sectional and the leather davenports of too many trained professionals.

There were the guinea pig months, where every fortnight heralded a new chemical cure with side effects worse than the initial illness. Two years of glacial gains and mudslide setbacks, cut with an endless bog of unactable ideas.

Incapacitation, for me, felt like being slowly drowned in my own ambitions. First I lost my will to put my thoughts on paper, which left my flowers of inspiration to bloom and rot under the cartoon lightbulb in my head. The world divided into things I wanted to do and things I could do, with little overlap. The cavern between desire and ability grew so large that a trip to the bank required as much planning as an alpine hike, and left me just as drained.

So I stopped worrying that I wasn’t a part of the world, and turned my focus to how I had gotten to this point and what I would do when past it. The answers were linked. I had burned myself out as a blogger, and blogging is a reactive medium. Events happened, I reported them. Artists created, I critiqued them. Gay culture was an assault, and I was leading the defense.

I was fighting Them, for Us.

They strike, I perry. They advance, I beat. Sleeping with one eye open, exhausted and wary to stay current, I finally asked myself, “How long do you keep making the second move before you ask what you’re running from?”

I was so busy reacting to the world around me that I ceased to be a part of it, and it was here that my infirmitude gave me a boon. The nature of my illness at that time, combined with its first wildly exacerbating attempt at treatment, set me out in a car for three weeks to get out of a few bad situations in a few different homes and re-experience the world of the living.

I drove from Chicago to a frigid Madison in mid-February 2012 and spent the next two weeks chasing the spring down to Georgia. When I wasn’t making bad decisions in gay bars and thrift stores, I thought.

I thought while chain-smoking at 4:00 a.m. in a dark highway between Louisville and Nashville. I thought in hotel rooms and thought so hard and slept so long I thought myself out of the daylight. I holed up at the Athens Days Inn for 36 hours with the shades down, with a box of crayons and a blank sketchbook, and thought until I remembered what it meant to share a piece of myself without fearing my audience.

I’ve spent three years trying to grasp what I learned over the course of those three weeks, and the only way I can share it now is by telling you a story. It’s a story I told myself during a period of time when I deemed it OK to treat myself like a child, albeit a child who’d read The Republic.

***

It seemed to me that there were actually two worlds, the land of creation and the land of reaction, and I was trapped in the latter. The land of reaction is beautiful, but none of the beauty is local. It ends at a cliff and a chasm, and across that chasm is the land of creation, where real things happen and real people live.

The artists and poets over there, painters and storytellers, musicians and dreamers, revolutionaries and leaders, would pluck out a piece of their soul and fling it across the chasm for their subjects on the other side. And when it landed, this song or movie, this idea or inspiration, those in the land of reaction would jump on it and each try to claim a little piece for themselves.

Unable to cross the chasm of pain and hard work, they stay where they are and tear up what lands at their feet, twisting and turning the organs of another’s genius until they could present it, gored beyond recognition, as their own.

Such atrocities I’d committed there! An American president once said that the credit belongs to the man in the arena, and I’d found the illusion of apex at the tailgate. I still put thoughts online after this, interviewed musicians and made cat videos, but I couldn’t find joy in them. I couldn’t shake the idea that every second in the land of reaction sunk my feet another inch in the mud, and soon I’d lose the ability to cross forever.

***

Stability is a poor synonym for recovery, but I’m better these days. Fifteen months ago, the last hard hit I took woke me up and I decided to make a small, old dream a reality. I’m tackling a line by line rewrite of T.S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland” as “White Gayland” a critique of the contemporary dominant gay culture. It’s hardly a whole-cloth miracle to draw over someone else’s blueprint, but I wanted the challenge of condensing 10 years of experience into a handful of stanzas. I wanted to write something I was proud of, something that wouldn’t spoil after a week on the windowsill.

I finished part one of five, and couldn’t find anywhere to publish. I’m highly unfamiliar with the literary and poetic world, and know from experience how most creative writing is received on most popular blogs. So I repeated an old mistake; I’m starting my own blog.

A continuation of my last blog, TheNewGay.net, I’ve started up TNG2.com as a home for aspiring creators with no place to go. My attempts to cross the gap from reactivity to creativity will begin with the next four parts of “White Gayland” interspersed with “A Different Dolphin,” a serialized gay children’s book written by New York City artist Aaron Clippinger and illustrated by myself.

This is the scariest thing I’ve done, including posing for Fleshbot and interviewing Stephin Merritt. Art lives longer than people, than articles, than tweets or likes or shouting matches, longer than any news segment or opinion piece, than protests, than riots, than wars, than fantasy or reality, than our children or our pets.

I’d like to have a home base for the creators outside of Buzzfeed, of social media, of “Internet famous,” of “How many followers?” or “Where’ve you been linked?” A place for original work and unpopular perspectives, for video and visual art and whatever comes after, a place for those who don’t fit in, who don’t have a base, who have whole worlds inside of them and no venue for release.

I don’t know exactly what I’m asking for, because I haven’t seen yet. Only you, the creator, know what’s in store. I just ask if this resonates with you — If you’ve also longed to take the long hike down the slope of reaction and up the hill of true magic, but feared rejection by those already there — let’s journey together.

If this resonates with you, shoot a note to Zack@tng2.com. There’s no deadline pressure, no weekly posts, no shitting out an anecdote to meet someone else’s deadline. Just present me with your own best self and let’s hope that, together, we can build our own endpoint.

Please Stop Spitting on Me During Sex

WARNING: This post contains sexually explicit language. Please read on at your own discretion.

Please stop spitting on me during sex. It’s gross, unnecessary, and totally weird. There is absolutely no need for you to spit on me while we are having intercourse, and, honestly, the spitting causes more problems than anything else. I don’t know what porn you saw this in, but please stop doing it. I don’t know why you find it attractive, because I certainly don’t.

First of all, spitting on me is not going to provide any more lubrication than your mouth is already providing during sex. By sucking my penis or licking my anus, you are already providing a sufficient amount of moisture to facilitate the sex act. What’s more, by using your mouth like a normal person during oral sex, you spread your saliva evenly over me, which is much more useful during intercourse than stray wads of lube hocked up on me. Not once have I looked at my dick during a blowjob and thought, “Wow, I am incredibly dry in this one particular spot. I hope he spits exactly there to keep me lubed up!” Half the time you try to spit on me you totally miss your target. I really don’t need your spit on my futon, alarm clock, or rug. I also don’t want a loogie in my chest or ass hair; you keep trying to be manly, but you missed the spittoon by a mile!

I can’t stand when you spit on me while we are kissing. When we softly taste each other with our tongues, that is hot! When you grab my face and spit in my mouth, that’s not! Maybe some guys enjoy the degradation of having their face spit on, but that is not me. Your spit is actually kind of gross. It’s ropy and bubbly, and sometimes there is phlegm or bits of food in it. I don’t need to see that.

When I dominate another man, I absolutely never spit on him. There are a lot of things that happen in porn that look hot on video but are gross unfulfilling in real life. Spitting falls under this category. The rawness of it may appeal to some, but otherwise it’s completely gross. There are tons of other hotter and more agreeable acts to do to assert your power. Being dominant can involve holding someone down with exerted arm muscles, using powerful words to make them submit, or simply taking the lead in the bedroom (all consensually, of course). Spitting is the most unpoetic way to be dominant.

How to Stop Teens from Texting while Driving

You would become a billionaire if you built a device to stop teens from texting and driving. The insurance companies would love it.

I think I figured out an elegant way to stop teens from texting. Yes, I could form a company to produce the product myself. But building a company takes time, and luck, and patent applications, and lots more. I would be dicking around trying to form a company while thousands of people die in the meantime.

So I'm going to release this idea for anyone who wants to take a run at it. I think insurance companies would be first in line. And I think they can act faster than I can.

Before you understand my solution, let me give you some context.

All newer cars have a standard jack that lets consumers add third-party devices that interact with the car's electronics. The jack is usually under the dashboard and most people have never seen it. Devices already exist that plug into that jack and record data about the car's operation.

The brute force method of preventing texting while driving involves, for example, having an app on your teen's phone that interacts with the plug-in device and shuts off texting functions while the car detects movement. That device already exists. I think AT&T offers one.

The problem with that approach is that whenever the teen is moving as a passenger in a car, or on a bus, texting is disabled. All the app knows is that the teen is in motion.

The problem no one has yet cracked is how to identify the driver of the car and disable that one phone's texting capability while allowing texting for passengers and public transit users.

That's the problem I solved.

My insight is that the problem lies with psychology, not technology. Here's my solution.

Like AT&T's solution, a device is jacked into the car's port below the dashboard. (You literally just plug it in.) The device works with an app that your teen has on his phone. That technology is all standard stuff.

All I am changing is the psychology, and to do that we require some tweaks in the software.

My solution requires one person to register as the non-texting driver for the specific vehicle or else a text alert will go to parents saying the car has no designated driver and is in motion.

That's it. That's the psychological fix. Think this through with me…

For starters, the passengers are all free to text, even if they have the app on their phones, because they have not registered as the driver of the moment. The speed of the vehicle is irrelevant to them.

If your teen is driving alone, he can still text and drive. The technology does not prevent it. But what does happen is that an immediate text is sent to a parent alerting of the behavior. And I can imagine also sending that data directly to the car insurance company as a way of knowing if the non-texting discount can apply.

I think it is important to allow texting and driving because sometimes the driver might hand his phone to a buddy and say, "Text my dad that we're heading to Bob's house." Or maybe the teen is stuck in stop-and-go traffic and just needs to tell his Mom, "home in 10." That's reasonably safe, but the parent will get an alert text anyway, including the highway speed at the moment of the text. If the car is at rest, the parent doesn't care. If the text says, "Eric says to tell you we are heading to Bob's house," it is obviously from a friend in the car, and again the parent isn't concerned.

My idea assumes that teens are selfish. (Fair enough?) Imagine a car full of teens, each with a phone, each texting continuously during the ride as passengers. Would any of those teens volunteer to be the designated driver – just to fool the app – so the real driver can text and drive? I don't think so, at least not often. Teens have lost the ability to be car passengers without texting. It isn't even a thing anymore. They need texting like they need air.

A teen is dumb enough to ride in a car with a driver that is texting, but that teen is too selfish to give up his own right to text. A system that relies on honesty, good judgment, or dependability will always fail with teens. But a system that depends on teens being selfish has a good shot at working.

Best of all, this system gives the teen passengers an easy way to protest if the driver somehow tries to beat the system and text anyway. Teens aren't good at saying, "Drive safely and don't text." But teens are great at saying, "Dude, I'm not going to be your designated non-texting bitch."

Your brain is now busy thinking of ways your teen can thwart my clever system, and those ways surely exist. No system is hole-free. But I think this system takes a huge bite out of the problem.

This is a big deal. If you can't think of a serious flaw in the system I described, we just fixed a big problem. And if there is a flaw I don't see, perhaps this discussion will spark a better idea in one of you.

Let's see if we can do something good today.

Dear Market Researcher, I’m Gay — Stop Sending Playboy Subscription Offers!

This offer arrived in the mail the other day from Playboy‘s Market Research Department:

2014-06-20-playboy.JPG

Dear Domenick Scudera,

To attract readers with preferred demographics, you have been selected to receive this courtesy. As a special incentive, the price is reduced down as low as we are allowed, giving you a full year of Playboy for a token $ 12.

A sampling of my friends’ responses:

  • “I hear the articles are good.”
  • “Wasn’t this on your wedding registry?”
  • “I think the label has a misprint — it should read ‘…to a token,12.'”
  • “Oh, c’mon. Everyone knows gay men love women.”
  • “Did u forget to tell us something?”

Gay acceptance has reached new heights if 49-year-old, recently married gay men are one of Playboy‘s “preferred demographics.” I feel blessed that Playboy has extended me this courtesy, one that I never would have received back in the days when gays were being denied equality.

The offer says that I will get the “beyond-beautiful women, obviously.” In addition, they believe that I will “appreciate the award-winning journalism and no-holds-barred interviews” in every “smoking hot issue.” The fine print includes this guarantee: “Playboy always guarantees that if you are ever dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever you get a full refund on all unmailed issues.”

Dear Playboy,

I am somewhat dissatisfied with my subscription. Don’t get me wrong. There is a lot to admire in your magazine: The articles and interviews are terrific, and the women are, obviously, beyond beautiful. However, I would enjoy more male nudity in my magazines. Please refund me the amount of my unmailed issues, until you are prepared to give me some smoking-hot maleness.

Thanks,
Domenick

This is not the first time I have received an offer for heterosexual porn. When I was 7 years old, I innocently opened up a plain, white envelope addressed to me. There was a series of pictures of naked women with their legs spread wide, and before I knew what was happening, my mother leaped across the room, wrestled the envelope out of my hands and appeared to have some trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, she was on the phone, complaining to someone, trying to make sure I never received offers like this again. Who did she call? The Post Office? The Better Business Bureau? President Nixon? I have no idea, but whoever it was, she was ineffective. I received more offers for years. She carefully monitored my mail until I was well into my college years.

Were 7-year-old gay boys one of the “preferred demographics” for Screw?

Most likely, these marketing departments have misidentified me. This is a problem I encounter often. For instance, when I watch television, the advertisers assume that I am a heavyset, single female on her period. I gather this from the fact that most of the commercials are for weight-loss supplements, dating sites and tampons.

About an hour after I received the Playboy offer, a pleasant young woman knocked on our front door with an offer for educational books for our children. When I explained that we have dogs, not kids, she showed me the books anyway. Did I know that flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp, and that they would be white if they did not? No, I did not. This is educational, but my nonexistent children will not learn this, because I did not order any of the books.

Am I missing out? There might be other interesting factoids in those books, and Playboy‘s “no-holds-barred interviews” might offer some insights. But for now, I think I will hold on to my gay dollars for another day.

If You’re Only 20-Something, Stop Saying You’re ‘Old.’ Just Stop It Right Now.

Say you’ve just turned 26. You realize that most pop stars and actors are younger than you. People born in the 2000s are teenagers now. And, you realize you have adult things to worry about, like keeping a job. You’re older now…

But are you actually old? No. No you are not.

Seriously, just stop saying it.

Watch the CollegeHumor sketch above to see why you shouldn’t be calling yourself “old” unless you’re already worrying about hip replacements or retirement.

And even then, you could say it’s a grey area.

No, Seriously, We Mustache You To Stop Doing This… (PHOTOS)

Happy Mexican Cultural Insensitivity Awareness Day! Also known as Drinko…I mean… Cinco de Mayo in the United States.

Yes, today is Mexican Independence Day. Wait, it’s not? Why are we drinking again? I have an unhealthy amount of tequila, a sombrero and a cut-out mustache I’m ready to whip out, so I’m really hoping this has something to do with Mexico. What do you mean not all Mexicans wear sombreros and mustaches? Is Tequila even Mexican? Yea!? Phew, I was this close to being totally culturally insensitive. So what’s Drinko de Mayo about, again?

Oh yeaaaa, the Battle of Puebla. We’re celebrating an unlikely but major victory by the 4,000-soldier strong Mexican Army against 8,000 French troops in 1862.

If only conversations on Cinco De Mayo ended like that. Alas, it seems that some Americans have a hard time grasping the true spirit of the Mexican holiday.

While a couple of chelas or shots of tequila are always welcome in a celebration, we can assure you there is no need to “dress up like a Mexican” to honor your southern neighbor’s culture. In fact, if you want to celebrate their culture try not insulting Mexicans by getting wasted while wearing sombreros, mustaches or cholo outfits.

Over the weekend, many celebrated the Mexican holiday and Instagrammed their favorite moments with the #cincodemayo hashtag. We took a little peek and chose a select group of people who will show you everything you should stop doing on Cinco de Mayo. Seriously, don’t do it.

What a coincidence, we mustache you to stop.

We mustache you a question. #cincodemayo

Because nothing says ‘I Love You’ like a little PDA and plenty of cultural insensitivity.

Mustache kisses ❤️ #ucrawlbarcrawl#cincodedrinko #cincodemayo #loveyou

No, you don’t look cool at all. Yes, we’re talking to you.

Out here at @eyeheartsf SANFRANCINCO BLOCK PARTY!!! #mustache #cincodemayo eyeheartsf

So I just found out I can draw on my pictures… Hold on, let me take a selfie. #CulturalFail

#cincodemayo #selfie #selfpic

Clearly, these two are too cool for school. So here’s a lesson, we’ll keep it simple: Mexicans =/= Gangsters or Cholos. #truestory

Happy #cincodemayo from your fav Mexican gangsters!

Proudly wearing Mexican flags as capes. Score! Wearing sombreros and bigger-than-life mustaches while doing that. Nope!

#ehsf #cincodemayo #party #sanfrancinco Viva Mexico!!

Paper cut out mustaches are cute but NOT for Cinco de Mayo. Don’t fight it, just go have some tequila.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! #sombrero #cincodemayo#mustache

SERIOUSLY!? Cultural insensitivity…brought to you by these guys since #08. Also, add this to list of things not to be proud of → #firstpeopletodressup

#flashbackdemayo #08 #cincodemayo #h1n1#firstpeopletodressup #mustache #mexicanoson

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, fortunately this thoughtful lady gave us four…

Happy El Cinco de Drinko ! Seriously Happy Cinco de Mayo! #TBTpic #ElRanchito #Mustache #Cincodemayo

Make. It. Stop.

Ahh memories… we’re all for going down memory lane as long as that lane is not filled with ponchos, sombreros, tequila and inappropriate cultural appropriation. Thanks.

CORRECTION: Buy a bunch of tequila and be yourself. #NoMoreMustaches
