TWK speaks with Milo Manheim, who plays lead zombie Zed in Disney’s upcoming movie Zombies (slated for release in 2018). He talks about his theater background…including what happened when his scene partner went to the bathroom and left him all alone on stage in the middle of a play, his circus performer days, and of course about his new role and movie for the Disney Channel.

DJ and Singer Chloe Jane is a Rising ‘Superstar’

Chloe Jane is on a roll. The pop singer, YouTuber and DJ released her debut single called “Superstar” just a few months ago, which was written by Meghan Trainor and The Elev3n (video embedded below) and recently deejayed at one of the most famous nightclubs on the planet: Amnesia on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

And, she’s only 14 years old!

Born in New York into a family of professional musicians, Chloe Jane learned piano at age 9 and started singing and dancing at the age of 10. Summer holidays with her parents in Ibiza and a special friendship with the legendary DJ Jellybean Benitez (who remixed and produced some of Madonna’s early music) inspired her to go to the DJ school Dubspot in NYC. She started her professional DJ career by performing at the age of 12 at Le Ti and Do Brazil in St Barth. During the Summer of 2016 she spun at KM5 in Ibiza as well as a string of charity events hosted by Paris Hilton.
We got the chance to do a written Q & A with Chloe for TWK, and she also recorded a quick cover video for you guys, our lovely readers! (Video is embedded at the bottom of the page)

Hi Chloe, nice to e-meet you! Tell us a little about yourself and where you grew up.

I am 14 years old. I sing, DJ, play piano, write songs and dance. I grew up in New York City.

What made you get into DJing and how did you learn how to do it?

My parents met in Ibiza, Spain and Ibiza is the biggest music island in the world. Every summer I went and watched DJs play. I watched them perform and wanted to learn how to DJ myself. A family friend of mine, Jellybean Benitez is a legend in the DJ/music industry. When I was 12 years old I told him I wanted to learn to DJ. He taught me all his tricks and that is how I started DJing.

How would you describe the style of music you play?

I play all different types of music. Depending on where I am playing, and for which crowd, I play different tracks. When I play for teenagers at my Glow Parties at Amnesia in Ibiza, I play a lot of EDM and pop.Which deejay has made the biggest impact on you and why?

I love Martin Garrix because I admire how much he has accomplished at such a young age. I love the music he creates and I love the shows he puts on.

What is the best piece of advice you have gotten from a fellow DJ or mentor?

PRACTICE and always keep looking for new music and remixes.

You are only 14. What was it like DJing at one of the most famous nightclubs in the world, Amnesia in Ibiza at such a young age? Were you uncomfortable at any point?

I loved having my own Teenage party at Amnesia because it gave the kids an opportunity to have a party and have fun as there are really no places for them to party. I always have fun when I DJ and sing. When I am on stage I have so much fun and I get to interact with the crowd.

What do you like to do besides spinning?

I sing, write songs and dance.

What are your goals in show business/DJing—where would you like to see yourself in 5 to
10 years?

In 5-10 years I would like to see myself releasing music throughout the world, touring in large venues around the world and appearing in major movies and television shows.

Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you.

My mom and aunt are from Australia and my aunt was Ms. Australia.

Can we get a quick selfie of whatever you are doing right now?

Is MMO Toxicity Simply a Reflection of Real Life?

As an MMORPG enthusiast who enjoys peeking into human psyche, I’ve often found that MMOs are perhaps one of the greatest platforms for conducting experiments and observing the many personalities humans possess. Quite frequently, I’ve heard it suggested that MMOs harbor toxic environments, rife with trolls and bullies, especially in guild culture. In this article, I’d like to examine any truth to those statements, and whether MMOs are uniquely conducive to toxicity, or simply a medium of extending our true-life personalities into virtual worlds.

Multiplayer games provide an astounding look into sociodynamic behavior – players who are thousands of miles apart, bonding or dividing over common creeds and goals. For example, players in MMOs can form groups called “guilds”. The actual mechanic name may vary depending on the MMO — they’re called cabals in The Secret World, for example — but guild is the general term. Generally speaking, they’re simply a way for players to form permanent groups, and often revolve around common causes – related to gameplay or not. I’ll explore that latter scenario later in this article.

The size of guilds can range from a handful of players, to several thousand – the largest corporation in Eve Online has 11,880 members as of writing. Interestingly, online games didn’t have guilds in the early days, because there were too few players. The earliest online games, known as MUDs, did have them; but the concept was seen as just another differentiator, in the same way that idiosyncratic healing strategies or the presence of currency were. There weren’t friends lists: the games were so small that you knew everyone anyway.

Today, guilds serve to divide the player base into smaller organizations. However, it’s been posited that they may hinder game immersion – owing to drama, elitism, and a general level of toxicity. Because there are real people behind the screens, real life biases can and often crop up in these social environments. I’m not speaking simply of online bullying, though this is often a major contributor.

Take for example Houses in the online game Achaea. Because Achaea is highly role-playing enforced, the guilds revolve around in-game fantasy concepts, such as protectors of Nature, or evil knights in service to Lord Sartan. Players join these guilds to expand their character’s story, to take part in enhanced roleplay, to leave real life behind and engage in a fantasy world. Yet more often than not, players complain of elitism, bullying, and out-of-game communication channels where players gossip about each other’s personal lives, and then bring these biases into the game itself.

Now what’s truly fascinating is that in games without hardcoded methods of forming player-organizations, people do it anyways. Take a look at Agar.io – an extremely simple yet popular online game. It is fairly devoid of plot, storyline, or any sort of hardcoded mechanics that would reward player groups. The goal of the game is to grow your cell, represented on screen as a colored circle, by feeding on pellets and smaller players. It is a literal free-for-all, with no mechanics for player grouping.

Ironically, players found ways to divide themselves into teams – through online names or cell colors. In fact, Agar.io became a center of political advocacy during the 2015 Turkish elections. Players were naming themselves according to political affiliation, and grouping up to battle players on the opposing spectrum. This highlights an obvious, yet intrinsic value hardcoded into the instinct of mankind – the desire to form like-minded communities. As Plato suggests, unless human persons congregate in groups, they could not survive, or if they could survive, they could not go beyond a minimal, animal kind of existence.

It’s worthwhile remembering this when considering whether or not guilds in multiplayer games are responsible for toxic environments. This piece on MassivelyOP, titled “Dealing with Toxicity in MMO Communities”, reached out to game developers, asking how toxic behaviours could be minimized in MMO games. The majority of responses focused on different aspects of the root causes of toxic behavior – competitive gameplay, the anonymity of the internet, and ultimately human nature. The responses seemed to reach the same conclusion; that humans are inherently toxic towards one another, and only extreme community moderating can begin to solve the problem.

The idea of competitive gameplay as the root of toxicity is an interesting theory, however. Because competition is indeed ingrained into the very cores of evolution. Without competition, there would be very little reason to evolve as species – and while “peace on earth” may be a desirable dream for mankind, it’d make for extremely boring gameplay. In fact, real world history remembers the conquerors – the Genghis Khans, Alexanders, and Napoleons of the world. Were Genghis Khan an MMO player today, he would certainly be accused of “trolling” and “toxic attitude”, as he raped and pillaged his way across game servers, with his guild of Mongolians. And yet, isn’t that the point of MMO gameplay, to a degree?

I know I’ve seemingly veered off into a separate subject than the sociodynamics of MMO organizations, but perhaps not – because as long as we retain that “conqueror” gene, that basic human instinct to categorize ourselves into like-minded groups with the goal of expansion, organizations will always be an element of multiplayer games, hardcoded or not, for better or for worse.

Thus, I posit that MMOs are not uniquely conducive to toxic environments, because toxicity already exists all around us in the real world. It’s simply that it’s easier to notice toxicity in virtual worlds, and we expect someone, like the administrators, to do something about it. Because when MMOS are seen as an “escape” from the real world, yet simply offer a mirror reflection of the real world in virtual form, it’s a very real reminder of the harsh world we live in, and thus the point of playing these games as a form of escapism becomes severely moot.

5 Cool Ways to Enjoy Your Favorite Movie

There’s nothing better than relaxing with your favorite movie. While watching the movie itself is pretty great, there’s also plenty of ways to make the experience even better than it normally is.

Movie theaters are cool, but they have become pretty expensive lately. Factor in the price of a ticket and concessions, and you are spending almost as much as it would cost to buy the movie. And what do you do when your favorite movie has left the theaters?

A Drive-In Experience

Drive-in movie theaters have become a bit of a relic in modern times, but for those who got to experience them in their heyday, it was an experience like no other. While traditional drive-ins might be all but extinct these days, you can mimic the experience from home. Simply set up your projector in front of a large wall on your house or a garage door, grab your friends, and park in front of it. You can even get your neighbors in on the fun, too.

Watch Parties

Themed watch parties with friends are a great way to take your viewing experience up a notch. Movie series with a cult following, like Star Wars, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings, are perfect for a long movie marathon with your friends. Or choose a theme and vote on movies that fit the theme. Depending on the movie you’re planning to watch, you can match the decorations, food, and even costumes to go with it. Seeing everyone get so into the mood will only help you enjoy things more. You can even make a contest out of it and award people for the best costumes if you want to take it even further.

Home Theater

A good home theater system can take your viewing experience for anything – whether it be movies or regular TV – to the next level. Powerful speakers, a huge screen, a clear projector, and an expansive home media server full of all your favorite movies give you that authentic theater experience at a fraction of the price and double the comfort. There’s really no comparison.

Camping

Camping might not be for everyone, but movies sure are. Putting them together can make even the most ardent homebody relent for at least a couple hours. Bringing a projector and screen along on your next trip into the woods gives you a unique viewing experience unlike any other surrounded by nature. Just make sure to properly steel yourself if you pop in a horror movie, and invest in a camping hammock to cuddle with your crush or BFFs!

Fake Reviewing

They say everyone’s a critic, but very few of us actually want to put our money where our mouths are. The next time you and a group of friends watch a movie, pretend you’re making a riff track in the style or your favorite review show. If you’ve never done it before, you’ll be surprised how much tossing out your best quips can improve the experience of watching a film (particularly the bad ones).

Watching a movie on its own is always a treat, but you can use these tips to make it even better. Dim the lights, grab some snacks, turn on the projector, and assemble your friends for the best viewing experience you can have.

Top Essentials for Easy, Chic Travel Dressing

Packing for a long trip or a weekend getaway isn’t easy for everyone. On top of making sure you have the right clothes for different types of weather, you also have to think about outfits for a variety of occasions, like a day of sightseeing or a night out on the town. But have no fear — this blog is here to be your travel style guru and help you look chic and effortless while on the go! If you want to look fashionable while traveling, these are the top essentials that every gal should definitely pack.

  1. Packing the Basics

For a three-day or week-long vacation, start by packing a pair of denim jeans or leggings in a neutral color, like black, blue, or white. There are so many ways to mix-and-match different tops, shirts, and blouses with the same pants, which gives you countless options from just a few basic pieces. While a pair of jeans takes up a considerable amount of room in your suitcase, t-shirts and tank-tops can be rolled up and fit easily into side pockets, or even slipped into a pair of shoes to save even more space.

  1. Monochrome Fashion

You may think that Monochrome sounds boring, but it’s actually a great strategy for putting together your outfits when traveling. The monochrome trend is all about picking one color that looks best on you and then combining it with different shades and tones of the same hue. If you always look fabulous in blue, then pick out pants, tops, dresses, and shoes that are either dark blue, navy, light blue, periwinkle, cerulean, or aquamarine. Also, consider colors that pair well with blue, like black and white, or are close to the hue on the color wheel, like purple and green.

  1. Day to Night Transitions

Dresses and skirts are lightweight, can be worn with leggings underneath, and are one of the best ways to switch a casual, daytime look to a more elegant, evening ensemble. Simply pair a dress with sneakers or sandals when out exploring during the day, and then change it up at night by wearing a pair of heels and adding some jewelry. When you shop dresses online, you can stock up on travel wear easily, and turn a single outfit into two with a few small adjustments!

  1. Accessories are Essentials

Accessories can make or break an outfit, and it can be hard to know what to take with you while on vacation. The best things to bring are eye-popping, stylish accessories that serve multiple purposes. Every girl needs one or two colorful or patterned head scarves, which ensure you look great whether you’re on a guided boat tour, relaxing at the pool or taking a selfie in front of a historic monument. Wear these scarves as a headband or a hair wrap when out to dinner and pair them some flashy, gold or silver hoop earrings for a cute yet classy look.

Other dual-purpose accessories include slip-on sneakers or sandals, hats, inexpensive and designer sunglasses, and a small purse or shoulder bag in an eye-catching color. Even if you’re rockin’ a blue-inspired monochrome look, you’ll stand out if you add a pair of bright red sneakers, a crimson patterned head scarf, and a pair of red hot shades.

Look Chic Every Day!

With these few simple tips, you can see why Hollywood starlets and other fashionistas always look great while traveling. Packing the basics with a few different types of accessories ensures you always look fresh while on the road. Try these tips today and discover how easy it is to look amazing all the time!

The wide variety of patterns and colorful designs make it easy to show off your unique individuality, and as a plus, they tend to be fairly inexpensive.

Sheepskin Slippers

The Top 5 Most Iconic Sneakers You Can Still Buy Today

Sneakers, or trainers, are shoes designed primarily for training and exercising purposes, but evolved to be worn as casual footwear over time. These shoes have a flexible sole and an upper part, both of which are made of either rubber or leather and are comfortable for physical activities such as running or jumping because they absorb shocks and provide good grip and support. They come in various designs and colours which also allows them to be a style statement.

Early models came to be known as Plimsolls in the 1870s, according to the book ‘The Plimsoll Sensation’ by Nicholette Jones. The shoes had a coloured band which connected the sole to the upper, and this resembled Plimsoll lines on a boat. Today, these shoes are known for comfort, design, flexibility and most of all, the fame garnered within the fraternities of celebrities, sportsmen and artists. While sneakers are generally affordable, there are many expensive models designed or promoted by well-known sports and entertainment figures.

Let’s have a look at the most iconic sneaker brands, all of which are still available to buy:

#5 Vans

Since the 1960s, Vans have been synonymous with skate culture, starting first in California and extending throughout the rest of the world as years passed. These shoes were specifically designed for skaters, not traditional athletes. Today, they are associated with extreme sports cultures, such as BMX, Motocross, surfing, and snowboadring. The company also sponsors the Warped Tour, an annual travelling rock festival.

Now, Vans is a major apparel brand, and you can even order custom vans online, with yoru choice of colors for just about every element of the shoe. Vans made a splash with their recent release of the Toy Story line of Vans, featuring designs inspired by the Pixar films.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

#4 Air Yeezys

Air Yeezy was a sneaker collaboration project between Nike and Kanye West from 2007 to 2014. It is iconic because probably no other non-athletic shoe has ever received as much hype, with collectors showing near fanatic devotion to the brand. Air Yeezy and Air Yeezy II featured various official releases, as well as test samples which only served to increase the hysteria around the shoes, which normally sell out in seconds.

Due to royalty disputes, Kanye moved hsi Yeezy brand over to Adidas in 2015…and these are proving to be even more popular than the original Nike Yeezys. Collectors are willing to pay up to $10,000 or more for cerain mint condition, genuine models. Unfortunately, many of the models available in the market are knock-offs made by Chinese laborers of inferior quality material and craftmanship, so be careful when shopping for you next pair of Yeezys!

#3 Adidas Originals

In 1920, Adolf “Adi” Dassler and his older brother Rudolf created their first sneaker, and Dassler Brother shoes became quite popular athletic footwear. Due to differences between them (Rudolf was rumored to be a devoted Nazi), Rudolf later went on to create his own brand called Puma, while Adi renamed the company Adidas (“Adi” + “Das,” from his nickname and last names).

An Adidas Original is a sub-brand of Adidas and is also its heritage line. An Adidas Original gives a retro feel and is popular amongst celebrities. Adidas has multiple iconic designs which have their own editions like the Stan Smith, Gazelle trainers and Adidas Superstar. Adidas Stan Smith was originally designed as a tennis shoe but is now used more as a fashion item, as are the Adidas Superstar which were shoes designed for basketball players.

#2 Chuck Taylor All Stars

Chuck Taylor All Stars is a casual shoe brand manufactured by Converse, which is a subsidiary of Nike. The design of Chuck Taylor consists of a stitched upper portion, a white rubber toe cap and a brown rubber sole. It was first manufactured in 1917 as a high performance athletic shoe for basketball players by Converse Rubber Shoe Company. Charles Chuck Taylor joined a basketball team which was sponsored by Converse Shoe Company, and he marketed the shoes while he held basketball clinics in high schools where he taught the basics of the game. Chuck Taylor made improvements to the shoe after which the shoe had enhanced flexibility, support and also a patch for ankle support. Initially, Taylors name was engraved on the shoe but later, they included his autograph in the shoe. Initially a sports shoe brand, it later evolved as a casual shoe brand where it gained popularity with teenagers and rock stars everywhere.

Two models of Chuck Taylor All Star shoe have been launched till date, with the new model sporting more modern elements for greater comfort.

#1 Air Jordans

When  Air Jordan’s first came out, they caused nearly the same hysteria as Yeezys do today. They were produced by Nike and specifically introduced for Chicago Bulls player Michael Jordan in 1984. The shoe which was designed for Jordan was then released publicly in 1985.  Unlike what you may believe, Jordan did not design the sneaker himself like Kanye did. The shoe for Nike was designed by Peter Moore, Tinker Hatfield and Bruce Kilgore. Air Jordan launches a model every year and 31 models of Air Jordan’s have been released till date. Air Jordans currently sponsor 21 active NBA players–they are not just reserved purely for Jordan any more.

The nomenclature of the shoes for every year has been AJ followed by model number in Roman Numerals except for some years wherein the launch year was mentioned. The naming examples are as follows: AJ I, AJ II, AJ 2009. There are other shoes also from the Air Jordan line which include Spizek, Defining Moments, Retro 6 Infrared Pack to mention a few. There is also a special edition collection known as Jordan 6 Rings which is a mash-up of elements from Air Jordan shoes that Michael Jordan wore during his 6 championship seasons.

Sneakers are one of the most preferred footwear of our times. They are trendy and comfortable, both of which are the most desired attributes while purchasing footwear. Being closed shoes, they are also protective for your feet. Trainers are a must have and these five iconic shoe brands offer trainers that will fit your budget. You can now choose the one that suits you the most by simply comparing each one on online retailer sites like mandmdirect.com which offer all the brands so you don’t have to go and check each and every brand’s store.

What Types of Shoes are Trending in 2017?

Looking stylish and fashionable can help you feel great the second you step out the door. A look should work from head to toe. The latest in shoes for 2017 are all about both fun and fashion. Put on a pair of these shoes and you’ll be touch with what’s going on right now.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Wild Colors

Color is in today. Have your shoes dyed to match your dress. Combine varied shades in a single pair or look for shoes that use multiple colors at the same time. Pick a pair of neon green boots, a lovely pair of sky blue mules or a pair of spiked heels in shocking pink and you’ll be right on trend.

Minimalism

Minimalism is also in fashion right now. Let go of the frills for shoes that have elegant lines. A single strap and understated back is all you need to show off those perfectly manicured toes and toned calves. A pair of sandals without the ruffles is ideal for the beach.

Sixties Revivals

The sixties are back and in style once again. Shoes in wild colors with swirls of color are just right for the fashionista. Paisley colors and psychedelic hints are today. If you have a pair of shoes from that time go back and put them on. If not, raid the vintage shops and your mother’s closet and you’ll look perfectly in touch with what’s hot. Have fun with the look.

Bring on the Bling

Bling is another trend today. The sparklier the better is the new mantra. Take an old pair of plain shoes and make them modern again. Get out your glue gun and add some bangles to the front and the back for the ideal evening look. Choose a mixture of clear and colored stones for your own original look that is sure to attract attention and admiration.

Calf-High Boots

High boots that cover the calve have been seen on the runways from major designers. You can show off your ability to remain fashion forward and help you enjoy additional height at the same time. A pair of calf-high boots will also help you get added height in the winter and keep your legs warm.

New Materials

Designers are experimenting with new materials for shoes. Look past standard leather and you’ll find shoes made from materials such as spandex. Spandex helps you cut an even thinner silhouette.

The biggest key with all of these trends is finding the shoe that best fits. Sometimes that means sacrificing the brand but it is worth it so that you don’t have to see a podiatrist later on.
