“I grew up a tomboy in New York. I also grew up pretty poor. I couldn’t afford name brands, so I’d go to the Salvation Army, buy something vintage and design my own clothes. For me, being an artist wasn’t just about self-expression; It was a way to survive.

Jägerbombs certainly have their time and place—namely college. But the bittersweet German spirit the drink incorporates is actually mixology friendly, and the artisanal-cocktail community is starting to embrace the complex ingredient.

Poke (poh-kay) has arrived on the mainland. The raw fish snack, which hails from Hawaii, exploded on the West Coast over the past year—Los Angeles alone has more than a dozen poke shops—and now it’s gone as far as Chicago and New York. “I took a family trip to Hawaii in 2012 and fell in love with the stuff,” says Drew Crane, who opened one of Manhattan’s first poke-dedicated restaurants, Wisefish, in January.

Vincent Boucher
You don’t need 27 blades and a subscription service to get a close shave. New versions of the redoubtably sleek safety razor give a design-worthy spin to the classic shaving implement. Unlike plastic razors, which can require excessive pressure, weightier metal razors do most of the work for you.

CORINNE IOZZIO
Downloadable songs and streaming music may have doomed the compact disc, but their popularity has helped breathe life into something much older: the vinyl record. After a nosedive in the 1980s, every facet of the vinyl ecosystem is rebounding.

Pulling off an appealing new take on a classic without seeming lame is easier said than done. Regardless of how much you may admire your old man’s 1970s sense of fashion after bingeing on the dearly departed HBO show Vinyl, you wouldn’t dare pair one of those psychedelic shirts with a Tom Ford suit in 2016.

BEN SCHOTT
Monday Night Football owes much of its immediate success to the filmic style and technical innovations of its first director, Chet Forte. Using about 10 strategically positioned cameras (twice the norm)—some mounted on golf carts, some handheld—as well as “shot-gun” mikes to capture every call and tackle, Forte coaxed a stop-start sport into telegenic narratives.

Why We Still Need Westerns
Director Antoine Fuqua's take on The Magnificent Seven is both classic and urgent

Stephen Rebello
Who says the Western is dead? Granted, recent sagebrush epics Diablo, Jane Got a Gun and Forsaken bit the dust, but The Revenant made wagonloads of money and won three Oscars. So don’t mourn the noble American genre just yet— especially when director Antoine Fuqua, known for the edgy cop dramas Training Day and Brooklyn’s Finest, delivers alean, mean and timely take on the 1960 classic The Magnificent Seven.

September of an election year is the cruelest month. In addition to experiencing the standard winter-is-coming heebie-jeebies, most anyone who cares about politics is worried that the end is nigh. Family dinners become battlegrounds; e-mail forwards provoke fistfights in office parking lots.

Arguably, the pop-culture divide between East and West is nowhere more apparent than in the realm of role-playing games. In Asia, the fashion is for depth and rigor, as you see in 100-hour epics such as Star Ocean and Persona. American gamers prefer the slick and streamlined punch of Mass Effect and The Witcher.

I stood on the sideline, hand over my heart, feeling the vibrations of the stadium. Adrenaline and cortisol pumped through my veins, along with Adderall, hydrocodone and Toradol.

A black flag whips in the early-morning breeze. Planted in the middle of a rocky hill a few hundred yards south of the mud-walled compound where the Afghan commandos have taken shelter, the flag’s message is clear: ISIS is here, waiting. The mission of the commandos of Afghanistan’s First Platoon, First Special Operations Battalion is straightforward: Find the ISIS fighters and take them out.

I’d had to let the cargo, but it was easy enough to order another, and, in the spirit of our new penny-pinching arrangement, again I shared the ride.
