Give the Gift of Crewners

It starts innocently enough, with a display at the grocery store. After that, it’s the saccharine commercials. Then the music starts permeating the radio. Before you know it, it’s upon you with the full weight of corporate America behind it: Christmas. Read More

Iconic Men from Now and Then: Men Who Croon

It’s hard not to look up to somebody who spends their whole life up on a stage. Putting the literal meaning of that statement aside, let’s talk about the men who give us a framework for how to be men ourselves in terms of style, appearance, and personality.

It’s no secret that entertainers are quite possibly the cornerstone of American pop culture. Those who live their lives in the limelight form archetypes in our minds in their own image. After all, when a person makes entertainment their trade, it means that they specialize in creating our most impressionable moments. You might not remember your first teacher’s name or your current best friend’s favorite color 10 years from now, but you’ll never forget the people who help you escape to a different world that your own.

Few mediums provide this kind of escape and catharsis better than song. Films give us a story to dive into, and actors provide a character to relate to or despise, but a great song can make you transcend yourself, and a great singer can look like a saint or an angel when standing behind a microphone.

It’s funny how an art form that’s primarily focused on sound can produce such visually iconic styles, looks, and characters. Let’s talk about a few.

Pulling Panache from the Past

What is it about the past that we find so inviting? The allure of history leads us to become immeasurably invested in words like “vintage” and “retro,” but what practical meaning do these concepts have, really? It makes sense that we reserve a certain amount of reverie for our own personal nostalgia – such as tales from our childhood or individuals we looked up to in our youth – but why do we tend to think so fondly about time periods which we never lived in and are sometimes several generations removed from? Read More
