O'Gara Coach, LA, Formula 1, Hollywood, 360 MAGAZINE, Robert Grubbs

O’Gara Coach × Formula 1

This week marked the first-time Los Angeles has played host to a Formula 1 event. The Formula 1 Hollywood Ride of Fame took place on a closed down Hollywood Blvd over the course of two days, beginning Tuesday, October 29th, and ending on Wednesday 30th. Leading luxury car dealership group, O’Gara Coach Beverly Hills, sponsored the event as well as provided three of the participating vehicles, a McLaren GT4, McLaren 600LT, and an Aston Martin DBS.

“We’re very excited to welcome the Formula 1 family to Los Angeles and introduce the city to the pinnacle series of racing! We are particularly happy to have the Aston Martin Red Bull team here to tear up the streets on Hollywood Blvd and O’Gara is thrilled to also be a part of the show and excite the fans alongside F1.”
– Rhys Edwards, Executive Director of Marketing at O’Gara Coach

Formula 1 kicked off the event by featuring a static display of past and present F1 cars, giving enthusiasts the opportunity to take an up-close and personal look at the vehicles. The O’Gara Coach vehicles were also on display at this time, garnering attention from the crowds hoping to snap a photo and peek at the models. By 4 pm on Wednesday, the live festivities officially began and thousands of spectators were lined up on Hollywood Blvd to watch the live show. O’Gara kicked off the show by driving their cars through the track driven by world-class professionals including Parris Mullins, Mark Proto, and Geoff Reeves. The crowd was mesmerized as these dazzling vehicles exhibited a true pinnacle of supercars in the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Blvd. Following O’Gara’s presentation, Red Bull provided an extravagant display of dare devil’s parachuting from the sky to arrive right on the track, stunt bikers, and acrobats. As a special delight, a live orchestra led by composer Brian Tyler performed the F1 theme song.

Wednesday also featured demonstrations from three Formula 1 world champions Valtteri Bottas, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. The trio was accompanied by their respective teams; Mercedes AMG Petronas Racing, Renault F1, and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, before heading to Austin Texas to compete in the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. All three riders also took part in an inaugural “F1 Donut Competition”, and with the help of the crowd, guest judge Brian Tyler chose Valterri as the champion. To close out the festivities all three world champion riders took to the track and all completed donuts with their race cars at the same time. Safe to say, the crowd went wild!

The McLaren 570S GT4 is a full competition specification GT4 car that is ready to race straight from the factory. The new McLaren 600LT builds on the agility and the purity of the 570S, its detailed connection to the road, and imbues it with the raw thrills and exhilarating performance that only a McLaren “Longtail” can deliver. The Aston Martin DBS has long signified the utmost in elegance and speed, comfort and performance. The shape is unmistakably Aston Martin, but stronger, broader, and more muscular than ever, not as a stylish whim but to cool and control the most powerful machine Aston Martin has ever produced.

teens take the met, met museum, 360 MAGAZINE

Teens Take The Met

The Met will welcome thousands of teens from New York’s five boroughs for Teens Take The Met!, a night of performances, hands-on activities, dancing, and giveaways. Since the program’s launch in 2014, the event has brought together over 28,000 young people for what has become one of the most dynamic events in New York City for teens. In partnership with over 40 youth and cultural organizations, the event encourages teens—many of whom are visiting The Met for the first time—to immerse themselves in hands-on experiences while exploring the Museum. Teens Take The Met! is free for all teens (age 13 or older) with a middle school or high school ID. 

The event is made possible by the Gray Foundation. 

“The Museum always looks forward to Teens Take The Met! with great anticipation,” commented Sandra Jackson-Dumont, the Museum’s Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Chairman of Education. “It is core to The Met’s mission to create safer spaces for all young people to be able to be themselves in big and beautiful ways.”

A wide and engaging variety of interactive stations, performances, and activities have been created for the event. There will be activities inspired by The Met’s inaugural annual facade commission by Kenyan-American artist Wangechi Mutu, The NewOnes, will free Us, including a power pose workshop led by Martha Graham’s Teens@Graham and a sun print activity with Met Teen Interns. 

Stations that offer art-making, hands-on learning, and thought-provoking discussions led by The Met and partner institutions will be scattered throughout the galleries. Some highlights: Art and Resistance Through Education (ARTE) will invite teens to create collages centered around the question “What does social justice mean to you?”; The Met’s Digital team will provide tips and tools on how to explore hundreds of thousands of open access artworks from the Museum’s collection online; the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian will teach teens how to create their own calendars that reflect the personal rituals in their lives, while learning about Indigenous calendars and timekeeping systems;  The Center for Anti Violence Education—a new partner for the event-will lead a self-defense demonstration followed by a session on self-care tips and breathing exercises; and The Door—also a new partner-will engage a station centered around the life and work of legendary artist, Keith Haring. 

Sign Language interpretation, assistive listening devices, sighted guides, large print and braille programs, and a designated quiet space will be available, along with free snacks and photo opportunities.

To participate, teens will need a special-event wristband, which they can pick up at either of the Museum’s two Fifth Avenue entrances (at 81st and 83rd Streets), where a pop-up performance by Bard High School Early College Panther Team Steppers will entertain the crowds during check-in. The wristbands will provide access to teen-only activities throughout the building. 

The event will be featured on The Met’s website, as well as on  Facebook,  Instagram, and Twitter via the hashtag #metteens.

Scott and Alison Stratten, The Jackass Whisperer, 360 MAGAZINE

The Jackass Whisperer

Five ways a Jackass can stress us out while travelling, and what we can do about it.

We could write an entire library about travel and the Jackasses you meet (or become) along the way. We travel for a living, so we find ourselves in planes, trains and rented automobiles more days than not.

Getting from A to B is a Jackass minefield. We’re all just trying to get where we’re going on time, without losing our cool. Air travel is particularly stressful, bringing together an expensive purchase, long lines, a ton of strangers, each with their own agenda, close quarters and being faced with our own mortality. It’s basically a Jackass stew.

How we react to the frustrations of travelling shape the way we interact, and most importantly whether we pay the Jackassery of our seatmate Carol with the emotional support squirrel, forward. We all need to be Jackass Whisperers – snuffing out the purveyors of pet peeves, before their attitudes spread.

So, after years of research with no arrests, here is our Travel Survival Guide, AKA our top five ways Jackasses stress us out while travelling, and what we can do about it. For each, there will be a Jackass Reaction – that pays the attitude forward, and the Whisperer Reaction – that stops the spread.

  • The Jackass thinks children should be seen and not heard

No one likes to travel beside a crying baby. Not even another crying baby. You’re going somewhere important enough to defy gravity to do it. You’ve awoken, driven in traffic, dragged your belongings through security. There were lines and waiting and an unexplainable anxiety, even though you don’t have any drugs, weapons or fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ve removed your shoes in public. All you want to do is watch a movie on a tiny screen and eat bad food off tiny cutlery, in peace. So when they find themselves sitting beside a crying baby and their apologetic parent, this Jackass just can’t keep their angry eyes to themselves.

Jackass Reaction: You threaten a baby.

Whisperer Reaction: You smile, pick up fallen toys and try your best to help out the worn-looking parent. We were all crying babies once. Besides, you packed your noise cancelling headphones in your carry on.

  • The Jackass never gives up their seat

This Jackass never gets out of their own head to look around them. Usually we support this kind of keep-it-to-yourself personality, but this is our exception. If someone could use that seat a little more than you, get up, buttercup.

Jackass Reaction: You walk over and sit in their lap. Clearly they’ve voided all rules of common decency, so you may as well teach them a lesson. Grab their hands and try to clip them together around you like a seat belt. After all, safety first.

Whisperer Reaction: You give up your seat, offering it loudly enough for others to see and hear. “Good example” is your middle name.

  • The Jackass boards a plane

Now boarding group Jackass! They stand up half an hour before boarding and crowd the entryway. They show no concern for others, for airport staff, or for the fact that they’re actually boarding group C. Once on board, they commit every overhead-bin crime against humanity. They squish a giant bag into the overhead bin, which we assume they believe has a tiny Houdini inside it, ready to magically transform their duffle bag into a tote. Without concern for others, they flail madly, hitting fellow passengers with their bag, elbows and belly, as their shirt rides up.

Jackass Reaction: You take a photo of that bare, hairy midriff, tag it #PlaneMoron with your flight info and seat number and hope the internet finds him.

Whisperer Reaction: You smile because you’re sitting in first class. Can’t swing a first class seat? Your preparedness, excellent packing skills and latte make every seat feel luxurious.

  • The Jackass makes out in the elevator

This Jackass treats hotel hallways, elevators and the check-in desk as their own personal space. Even with the plutonium-grade insulation we assume they think is in the walls, we can see and hear them fighting (or, shall we say, the opposite of fighting) with their significant other in any of these places.

Jackass Reaction: You do what Scott did recently. You open the hotel room door while standing in your robe and stare quietly at them until they notice you.

Whisperer Reaction: You invest in some ear plugs, and if it gets out of hand, you contact hotel security. They’re used to it, and you don’t need to get into an altercation in your bathrobe. Again.

  • The Jackass has arrived

Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the flight is over! This Jackass takes that seat belt off as soon as they hit the tarmac and stand up. They muscle ahead of everyone and pull their giant carry-on out of the overhead bin, elbowing and bumping along the way. Deplaning is about survival of the fittest, patience be damned!

Jackass Reaction: You stand up and do your best Roadblock from G.I. Joe impression, running into the prematurely standing passenger with the force of an offensive lineman on gameday.

Whisperer Reaction: You stay in your seat and let the stewards deal with this guy. Some people are just the worst.

Whether on the road, in the air or at a hotel, travel brings out the colicky baby in all of us. So take your seat, adjust your mirrors and for the love of tiny bags of peanuts, remember to pack your sense of humor. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

SHECK WES RELEASES NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “YKTS”

Harlem rapper Sheck Wes has premiered his long-awaited new single “YKTS. Released via Cactus Jack/ G.O.O.D. Music/ Interscope Records and accompanied by a wildly outlandish video, “YKTS” showcases the raw intensity and lo-fi but hard-hitting aesthetic that made Sheck a breakout star with his viral hit “Mo Bamba.

Watch the video for “YKTS” HERE.

Directed by White Trash Tyler (a filmmaker known for his work with Travis ScottKanye West, and Kodak Black) and shot on both coasts, the “YKTS” visual finds Sheck in a variety of outrageous scenarios: racing foreign cars through the California desert, buried in an avalanche of sneakers, donning crystal chandeliers as headwear. The starkly potent track’s title phrase stands for “You Know the Scouts” — a term that Sheck coined himself and quickly made essential to the cultural lexicon.

A 21-year-old first-generation American, Sheck broke through with his triple-platinum single “Mo Bamba”: a tribute to his childhood friend and Orlando Magic draft pick Mo Bamba, and a powerful portrait of survival in the inner city. Originally released in June 2017, the song went viral in early 2018, eventually reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and amassing over 527 million streams on Spotify to date. In addition, the New York Times featured “Mo Bamba” in its “Diary of a Song” series, with Sheck appearing alongside his collaborators 16yrold and Take A Daytrip. Check it out HERE.

“Mo Bamba” appears on Sheck’s widely acclaimed full-length debut MUDBOY, which arrived in October of last year. Along with hitting the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart, MUDBOY landed on the Top 50 Albums of 2018 list from on Pitchfork (who also hailed it as a “a strong and holistic statement” and “the rare project from an über-hyped rap prospect that actually delivers on its promise”).

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MY MOTHER

Directed by Beniamino Barrese


The critically acclaimed documentary on legendary model-turned-activist Benedetta Barzini

Opens NY on DEC 6 at QUAD CINEMA & LA on Dec 13 at LAEMMLE MONICA

Upcoming screenings & QA’s w/Beniamino Barrese & Benedetta Barzini:

NY – Nov 16 at MoMI

LA – DEADLINE’s “For the Love of Docs” on NOV 19 at THE LANDMARK

Official Selection: Sundance Film Festival, Hot Docs, Frameline


Benedetta Barzini wants to disappear. An iconic fashion model in the 1960s, she became a muse to Warhol, Dali, Penn and Avedon. As a radical feminist in the 1970s, she fought for the rights and emancipation of women. But at the age of 75, she is fed up with all the roles that life has imposed upon her and decides to leave everything and everybody behind, to disappear to a place as far as possible from the gaze of the camera. Only her son Beniamino is permitted to witness her journey. Having filmed her since he was a child in spite of all her resistance, he now wants to make a film about her, to keep her close for as long as possible — or, at least, as long as his camera keeps running. The making of the film turns into a battle between mother and son, a stubborn fight to capture the ultimate image of Benedetta — that of her liberation.

5 Reasons to Pair Vegan Food with Organic Beer
 

Jai Ho Midnight IPA offers some reasons why those celebrating World Vegan Month will want to opt for organic beer
 
November is World Vegan Month, making it the perfect time to raise awareness about vegan food and beverage choices. It’s also a good time to remind people of the importance of opting for organic beer when they make their selections. With so many people focusing on vegan lifestyles this month, it’s an ideal time to look at how organic beer fits right in.
 
“Anyone can see that there’s a major vegan and plant-based movement taking place right now,” explains Jai Patel, chief executive officer of NDN BV, Inc. “We’re going to see even more about vegan food and beer in November and in the months to come. As many people transition to that lifestyle, it’s a good idea to explore new beer options, too.”
 
The term “vegan” was coined in 1944 by a man named Donald Watson. It is a lifestyle seeking to reduce contributions to animal cruelty. Those who follow a vegan lifestyle avoid consuming or using any animal-derived products, as well as animals being used in entertainment when possible. Most vegans also try to be mindful of their environmental footprint, because when caring for the planet you’re also protecting it for all beings inhabiting it.
 
In addition to the millions of people who adhere to a vegan lifestyle, interest in plant-based foods also continues to steadily rise. According to the Plant Based Foods Association, U.S. retail sales of plant-based foods have grown 11% in the last year, and now have a market share value of $4.5 billion. 
 
Due to some of the ingredients used, or because of the animal products used during the refining process, many beer and wine options are not vegan. Vegans seek out beer options that match their lifestyle choice, and organic beer makes for a great match.
 
Here are 5 reasons to pair vegan food with organic beer:
 
Organic beer is more environmentally friendly. It’s made with ingredients that are grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides, including barley and hops.

When beer is made with organic ingredients the environment is protected from chemical runoff. Chemical runoff is responsible for harming water sources and the ecosystem in general.

Organic beer is also thought to be healthier because it’s made with better ingredients. Plus, many people find that this process leads to a better tasting final product.

Organic beer is the best option for pairing with vegan or plant-based lifestyles. Due to the way it is made, it’s a natural fit for people who are more mindful of what they consume. Jai Ho 100% organic beer, for example, pairs well with spicy and savory dishes. Whether having an ethnic meal, such as Indian or Thai, or savory vegan entrées like mushroom stroganoff, baked mac and cheese, or tacos, Jai Ho 100% organic beer makes for perfect pairing. Vegan sushi is another good option for pairing with Jai Ho beer.

Opting for a beer that’s labeled 100% organic, consumers will be avoiding chemically added sulfites. According to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, only beer that contains organic ingredients and processing aids with no chemically added sulfites can use the “100% organic” label. Those using just the “organic” label must contain at least 95% organic ingredients, with no chemically added sulfites.

“The decision about going organic when it comes to drinking beer is a personal choice,” added Patel. “If you’re concerned about what you put into your body and how your food choices affect the planet, then some extra money spent on organic beer seems well worth it.”

Jai Ho Midnight is a craft India Pale Ale (IPA) beer featuring a red/orange pour with a frothy white head and a smooth citrus aroma. Having already caught the attention of many craft beer enthusiasts, it’s currently available in numerous cities around the country. It’s 100% organic and made with high-quality barley malt, hops and crystal-clear water from the Scandinavian underground. Unfiltered and slow brewed over 49 days, Jai Ho Beer is rated IBU 57, meaning it’s less bitter than other IPAs.

Jai Ho Midnight IPA is currently available in restaurants, bars and fine dining establishments in the following cities and states: Los Angeles, CA – San Francisco, CA – Las Vegas, NV – Houston, TX – Northern Virginia and New Jersey.
 
Coming soon: Jai Ho Midday, a full-bodied lager that features notes of fruit and hops.
