The Star Wars universe wasn't always a universe. In 1978, it was a really popular movie — and George Lucas wanted to keep it that way. That was the rationale behind handing CBS the rights to make a Star Wars Holiday Special, which quickly became one of the worst TV airings of all time. This is how the Holiday Special happened, a long time ago, in a universe far, far away.
The 2000s was the death knell of the supercar. Once upon a time, supercars were cramped, uncomfortable, impossible to see out of, and temperamental. Then came the 00s, and suddenly, you could drive a 600+ hp car in the city like it was a Honda Accord. Before the outrageous hypercars of the 2010s, here were the best supercars of the 00s.
Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface. The glass spheres create an entirely reflective jacket that is constantly changing color while you ski or snowboard. The Blue Morpho is engineered for a max range of motion with plenty of room for a hoodie underneath. The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.

Brandan "Bmike" Odums got his intro to street art in an abandoned housing project in New Orleans. He started there and kept returning there, amassing a collection of graffiti paintings on the walls. When the building was torn down, they cut out Brandan's work where it is now on display.
