The Jokers

Every youngster filled with anger, energy, enthusiasm, and sadness can relate to these intimate photos. This is a study of the age of adolescence in NYC in the 1950s by Bruce Davidson. These kids are anxiously moving forward with an unknown future and unknown goals. Not only is Davidson’s work a sincere portrayal of troubled teenagers coming of age, but it also acts as a documentation of teenage life during the 50s, exposing the emotional climate of that time period and exposing the dark side of a supposedly innocent time period.

Due to my ever worsening eye sight, I was in need of an updated prescription and new glasses. I haven’t had an eye exam since my freshmen year of college (I’m 25 now…yeah I know, old right) and I figured it was a good time to update the glasses as well. I’ve never been a contact person and glasses can be ridiculously expensive, I mean who wants to spend $350 bucks on a pair of Ray Bans or something? 

About 4 or 5 months ago a buddy of mine told me about a company called Warby Parker. I did a quick Google search, which is always the answer, and I found an amazing company. Warby Parker could be described as the Netflix of glasses. You can pick up to five frames for a home try on that will cost you zilch. They mail the glasses to you and you have five days to have everyone and their mothers check them out and let you know what they think before you ship them back with a prepaid return slip. Best of all, once you’ve made your decision, glasses with prescription and anti-reflective coating come in at an amazing $95. Even better, they give a pair away to some one in need of eyewear that normally wouldn’t be able to afford it. 

My pair are the Preston in Whisky Tortoise. I can’t recommend them highly enough. I will most definitely be purchasing a second pair in the near future.

For 2012, let’s get back to the fundamentals. For example, dark denim and brown wingtips always looks A+. It’s so easy you might just be able to stick to a resolution for once.

Easier than trying to lose 30 pounds or whatever.

As a man who often wears flannels and at the moment has a pretty impressive beard going, it is required by law that I like a good whiskey, especially bourbon. I have always been a Jim Beam fan, especially Knob Creek. About a year ago a buddy of mine introduced me to a top of the line bourbon from Jim Beam, Booker’s.  There is nothing quite like a bourbon that gives you a swift kick in the groin and then a smooth kiss to make up for it.

Booker’s has an intense flavor of tobacco, vanilla, and oak. The bottle that I’m currently on is almost a whopping 128 proof. It is definitely a bourbon that will put a little hair on your chest. I definitely recommend it, it is worth the 50 or so bucks!
