Stonkbros Are Angry Over Netflix’s GameStop Documentary Trailer

Image: Epic / Google / KotakuBack in January of 2021 GameStop’s stock price exploded as Reddit trolls went to war with old-school investors after the latter bet on the company failing. Reddit et al called their bluff, and well, it’s now the stuff of documentary films. Speaking of, Netflix just released a new trailer for its upcoming documentary about the wild “gamestonks” saga, and it’s made some of the trollish Redditors who were involved in all this very mad. So mad, they’re threatening to cancel their streaming subscriptions.Let’s rewind real quick to (briefly) explain what the hell happened back in January 2021.At the beginning of the year, GameStop’s stock was trading at under $20 a share, and the brick-and-mortar retail chain it was attached to was in desperate need of a Plan B. But ...

McDonald’s CEO Makes a Big Political Statement (Some Won’t Like It)

Chief executives and political commentary rarely go well together — when outgoing Whole Foods CEO John Mackey went on a podcast to say that the "socialists are taking over" and young people "don’t seem like they want to work," the internet did not let him retire without one last scandal.The latest person to make a splash with his remarks is McDonald's  (MCD)  chief executive Chris Kempczinski. During a conference at the Economic Club of Chicago, Kempczinski drew attention to the issue of crime in the Midwestern metropolis that serves as the headquarters of the Golden Arches.The city alone has more than 400 restaurants and, Kempczinski told reporters at the event, rising crime has been making it difficult to run many of them.ShutterstockKempczinski: 'Violent Crime In Our Restaurants'"We hav...

A Fashion Editor’s Mejuri Jewelry Review

Photo: @indyabrown Fashion editors have a lot of opinions. And while it may take more than the average to please us, when we like something, we tend to stick behind it. A brand that's been ringing in my ears from my editor colleagues is Canadian jewelry brand Mejuri. Admittedly it's been on my radar for a minute—via events and general shopping research— but until recently I never dove deep into ...

32 of the Best Bob Hairstyles for Your Next Haircut

My hair has recently reached that awkward in-between length. It's no longer the mid-length lob that I visited the hairdressers for last year, but it can't quite be considered a long hairstyle yet. Instead, it's sitting rather uninspiringly on my shoulders, causing me to seriously consider going for the chop. I've experimented with shorter hairstyles over the years but have never taken the plunge into a full-on bob.However, with my Instagram feed starting to fill up with dramatic haircuts, I have to admit that I'm seriously tempted to forgo my lengths in favor of something shorter, choppier, and infinitely cooler. And a quick look online confirmed that the bob just might be the hairstyle of the fall. So many celebrities have undergone major short-hair transformations over the last year, and...

These Are the Best Plus-Size Stores, Hands Down

Body inclusivity is no longer an extra asset that brands throw on their marketing techniques. It's a default—a prerequisite for fashion brands to expand their sizes to ensure that all women have the opportunity to feel stylish, beautiful, and at their best. A clothing store without plus-size options is reminiscent of a makeup brand without foundation that caters to different skin tones. And even though fashion continues to exhibit signs of progression, there is obviously still so much more work to do. However, there is more than meets the eye when it comes to shopping for plus-sizes. Most people are unaware of the unseen labor that goes into it. Contrary to their straight-size counterparts, those above a 12 or 14 don't necessarily have the option of just popping into a Zara to find a last-...

15 Fall/Winter 2022 Fashion Trends That Are Taking Over

The overarching mood of fall/winter 2022's fashion trends can be summed up in one word: nostalgia. Now, nostalgia comes in many different forms depending on your age, experiences, and interests. Whatever you might associate with happier, simpler times has likely been translated to the runways for the upcoming season because the creative collectives in Copenhagen, New York, London, Milan, and Paris have all been feeling that desire for a better life. Designers powered through the past two pandemic years with optimism, channeling their energies in quite literal pick-me-up trends such as dopamine dressing—a hashtag that continues to garner attention on almost all social platforms—but with...
