Less than a year ago, New York-base designer Lawrence Leyderman sought to address what was missing in the watch market – a fairly valued timepiece with distinctive features. What he came away with was the Bedlam Chronograph Watch, named after Babylonian Bedlam, an early description of New York City’s endless chaos and grimes. Another was the creation of his watch label, which Leyderman named “House of Horology”.
Available in 16 variations of colors, finishes, and accents, House of Horology‘s Bedlam Chronograph Watch offers elements found on more expensive timepieces such as scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and Japanese quartz movement. Yet, each retails at 0 only. Measured at 43 mm in diameter and waterproof at up to 10 ATM or 330 feet, the collection is currently featured at PROJECT trade show and available through House of Horology online store as well as it’s newly opened boutique on Prince Street, NYC.

Get ready to feel extremely old. On January 22nd 2003, Chappelle Show made its debut on Comedy Central.
Today marks the ten year anniversary of the debut of Dave Chappelle’s wildly popular sketch comedy show. The controversial show starring the stand-up comedian is still one of the funniest television shows ever to air.
The show pushed the boundaries of what was allowed and not allowed on cable television as Chappelle shined a humorous light on race relations, pop culture, politics and everything in between.
What we’ll never forget about Chappelle is the stage that he always gave Hip-Hop. It was one thing to include Hip-Hop artists as performers on the show, but it was the comedian’s use of the artists in the sketches that made for some truly unforgettable. Dave’s ability to equally satirize some of the most iconic artists in Hip-Hop also added to what made Chappelle’s Show the benchmark in sketch comedy television.
In no particular order, take a look at some of the most hilarious Hip-Hop moments in the history of Chappelle’s Show. We miss ya, Dave!
Maybe because of his Midwestern upbringing, or perhaps it’s his experiences working at Ralph Lauren, Gap, and J. Crew, but there is a certain affableness to Todd Snyder‘s clothing, much like the designer himself. Needless to say, it is the same homeliness you will find in Snyder’s latest collaboration with Champion. Together with Ned Munroe, Chief Designer at Champion, and Joanne Sessler, Designer Director for the classic American label, Snyder recreated scenes he found on vintage photographs belonging to the storied New York Athletic Club with Champion’s archival designs.
A focus on American sportswear, tailoring, and materials, the collection, billed as “City Gym,” will consists a full range of 35 pieces, from thermal long-sleeve crewneck tees and sweatshirts to garment dyed tees, all in familiar colors palettes such as oatmeal heather, stone, grey, crimson, vintage green, and washed royal. There will also be preparatory school staples such as wool flannel varsity jacket, merino wool varsity sweaters, and waxed duffel coats, within the collection. Each design to include a 1950s styled Champion label with a “T.SNYDER” marking in handwritten font, a reference to Snyder’s own gym uniforms when he was still in school.
Currently on display at PROJECT Show New York in Pier 92, the Todd Snyder x Champion “City Gym” Collection will be available starting on August 2013 through select retailers with Todd Snyder account.

Branded an international automotive hub for the better part of the last century, Detroit has also become a sort of forum-like domain for the controversial industry having hosted product detailing auto shows since 1907. Now in its 24th year, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) focuses on redefining what it means to be a consumer-driven international trade show through the introduction of bold new ways to “enhance attendees’ experiences and deliver exceptional value to media, industry and the public.” Opening its Cobo Center doors on January 14, this year’s show featured over 500 new model upgrades from 40 manufacturers, daily admissions totaling over 100,000, a slew of concepts, millions of dollars raised for charity and imaginative exhibits that included Toyota’s “Drive Land” motion-controlled game and Kia’s dancing hamsters. Now in its final week, Hypebeast was in attendance during its press week to capture some outstanding images of the various unveiling automobiles which included Chevy’s Corvette Stingray, the Ford Atlas and Acura’s NSX among many more.

Long before Sway Calloway joined MTV, where he’s interviewed everyone from Jay-Z to President Barack Obama, the iconic hip-hop VJ/journalist ruled the airwaves in his native Oakland on the “Wake Up Show” with longtime partner-in-rhyme King Tech. On Friday (January 18), it was announced that the duo would bring their world-renowned radio show to Sirius XM’s Shade 45.
“They continue to help us make sense of what we love about Hip-Hop,” said Adrian Miller, one of the show’s executive producers.
The show, which also includes DJ Revolution mixing on the 1’s and 2’s, is best known for its exclusive access to cutting edge hip-hop music and its innovative format. Additionally, the show is widely recognized as a springboard for rising stars and has had a number of upcoming hip-hop icons on the show early in their respective careers, such as Notorious B.I.G., The Wu-Tang Clan, Tupac, Jay Z, Kanye West and, most notably, Eminem, who was signed by Dr. Dre’s Aftermath imprint as a result of his weekly slot rapping on the show.

Last night’s "American Idol" premiere was everything we thought it would be. Catfights between Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj and classy shade thrown by MiMi. Check out some tidbits inside in case you missed it…
As the "Idol" judges made their way around the country for auditions during the first night of the premiere, Nicki & Mariah clashed to the high heavens. And you gotta love it.
When Nicki rocked her fluffy drum major’s hat and had it sitting on the judges’ desk, Mariah remarked:
‘I wanted to bring my dog. We can have accessories? I didn’t know that was allowed. But that’s the last thing I’m going to say.’
Teeheeeeee. And it didn’t end there.
One of the contestants began by telling Mariah her Christmas song "All I Want For Christmas" is the best Holiday song ever. Nicki unnecessarily chanted through her gritted teeth:
"She’s a b*tch, she’s a b*tch, she’s a b*tch."
Mariah’s response: "If she called me something that begins with a “B” and ends in an “-itch”, I rebuke it."
Ha! Not REBUKE though.
And another funny scene went down int he hair and makeup room. Mariah said, "I want to lose three pounds." And the convo went downhill from there:
‘I know how you can,’ said Minaj.
‘It’s a quote from Mean Girls. If you knew Mean Girls you would know,’ said Carey. ‘I do know Mean Girls,’ said Minaj.
‘OK, who says “I want to lose three pounds.” Which character?’ challenged Carey.
‘Not Lindsay. The other one, with the blonde hair,’ said Minaj.
‘What’s her name?’ asked Carey. ‘You know something?’ said Minaj. ‘Mariah?’
‘I just want to know,’ said Carey. ‘Broken promises, right?’
Check out a video recap of last night below:
Meanwhile, nothing seemed to get to Mariah:
Because chick Instagrammed a pic of herself watching her premiere in bed with her baby girl Monroe Cannon. Sweet!
