Women have taken to Instagram to show off the red painted underneath their nails à la Louboutin heels.

The hashtag #LouboutainNails shows women who have taken the red-soled shoe trend to the salon.

The Secret To Perfect Weed Butter

by Jolie Kerr

To begin, the briefest of rants. A few years ago, I got one of these Crock-Pot Little Dipper dealies as a gift. The idea, the gift-giver told me, was that I could use it to keep queso or artichoke dip warm when I had friends over. This was going to be so great! No longer would once-hot queso congeal sadly on my coffee table! The days of artichoke dip going cold when only half the baking dish had been consumed were over! IT WAS A HOT-DIP MIRACLE.

Behind The Photo That Changed The Boston Marathon Forever

by David Davis
Krankota

This is a good read!

Everyone knows someone who’s run the marathon. Today’s big-city races—in places like Boston, New York, Berlin, and London—draw Olympic hopefuls competing for hundreds of thousands of dollars and hordes of weekend warriors raising money for their favorite charities or just hoping to check off “complete a marathon” on their bucket lists. Marathoning has birthed an industry of energy supplements and performance gear, training manuals and glossy magazines, corporate sponsorships and fitness expos. And nearly half of marathon entrants are women.

Noted: New Name, Logo, and Identity for Naked Chicken Co by The Watsons

by Armin
Krankota

Overdone typeface combo, sure, but I really like the execution

Pudgie Bares All

New Name, Logo, and Identity for Naked Chicken Co by The Watsons

Founded in 1981 in the community of Bethpage, New York, (as Pudgie's Famous Chicken), George Sanders developed his secret chicken recipe and skinning process. The concept quickly spread throughout Long Island and by 1989 had become a franchise company. In 2007, TRUFOODS LLC, acquired the Pudgie's brand. After exhaustive research, TRUFOODS, LLC. created the most unique, relevant & quality driven chicken brand in the quick service restaurant industry, Pudgie's Naked Chicken Co."

Design by: The Watsons (New York, NY)

Opinion/Notes: The previous logo and chicken had all the trimmings of a small, naive restaurant chain and could have probably stuck with that look for decades to come but a little update doesn't hurt. The new logo has a little too much faux texture but the basic structure is quite decent. The new chicken is good-looking (although maybe it has one too many off-register layers). The type is Lost Type Co-op all the way — with Highlands being the main one and Deming in the supporting role — which gives it a slight been-there-done-that feel. Still, it's an improvement that feels like a more modern franchise and the polo alone would be worth the effort to get a franchise going.

Self-Serve ‘Beer Robots’ Are Real, Spectacular, And Headed For Chicago’s United Center

by Brian Sharp
Krankota

I have seen the future, and it is good.

draftserv

Chicago Business


Levy Restaurants, the Chicago-based company responsible for selling concessions to Bulls and Blackhawks fans throughout the United Center, is setting up self-service beer stands on the stadium’s concourse for both teams’ respective playoff runs. The goal is to allow fans to pour their own beer, purchasing the exact amount they wish to consume at a set rate per ounce.

Two DraftServ units, each with four taps, will be installed at the United Center, stationed outside the Goose Island Brew Pub near Section 110 of the arena. They will be in use for Game 1 of the Bulls-Bucks series on April 18 and through the postseason for both Chicago teams.

Essentially, fans will buy a prepaid card from a cashier who will be standing nearby. The cards are then used to tap a sensor on the unit. After the customer pours their desired amount of beer, the final price is then deducted from their card.

Similar units were installed in Minnesota last summer for the MLB All-Star game and the results were positive, so Levy is hopeful of similar success at the United Center. “I am a big believer in the potential of it,” said Sean Parisi, director of beverage at Levy. “I could see the future of self-service beer in club environments where you walk in and have a preloaded card, or have areas for season-ticket holders.”

Beer choices will include Bud products at 42.5 cents per ounce and Stella Artois or Goose Island at 47.5 cents per ounce.

The Buck Stops Here

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright

Joining the league in the 1968 – 69 season as an expansion team, the Milwakuee Bucks are the professional NBA team of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, playing in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference. They have only won one championship, in their third season, with the help of a young player by the name of Lew Alcindor (later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar). The Bucks have never been a great team but somehow have had really great players like Kareem, Oscar Robertson, and Ray Allen, among others. Currently at a 50% win record for the season (with only one game left), the Bucks are looking to generate some excitement for the 2015 – 16 season as they introduced a new logo and identity designed by Brooklyn, NY-based Doubleday & Cartwright. (The Bucks have tried to appease the locals by stating that the firm's Managing Creative Director is a Milwaukee native).

The centerpiece of the new brand is the new Buck emblem. The new Buck is only looking ahead, an imposing figure determined and focused on the path in front of him. Several features chronicle the transformation of the team into an undeniable force:

1. An expanded rack (from 8 to 12 points) showing the maturation of the Buck, and underlining the point that he has become an even greater force.

2. The basketball feature in the negative space between the antlers.

3. The M Shape within the chest chevron as an homage to Milwaukee

4. With hard edges that appear almost cut from metal, and industrial but classic proprietary font juxtaposed against the curvature of the logo represents a symbolic union of urban and rural Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Bucks new logo page

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright
Primary logo, detail.

The previous logo was neither great nor terrible. It was a fairly literal drawing of a buck and some extra chiseled, extra stroked typography. Could be mistaken for a dozen other sports logos. The new logo is a more abstract interpretation of the buck and comes with plenty of rhetoric about its change from an 8-point to a 12-point antler. "We made it more badass" would have been an acceptable rationalization. The antler part is nicely done and I like the subtle basketball in the smaller horns. The face of the buck is much improved and more interesting. The "M" that makes up the chest or neck part of the buck is the one thing that drives me crazy — as it does in the secondary logo — but then the typography — I'll talk more about it below — saves it in this primary logo. The new logo has a good vintage feel without going full-blast to the past.

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright
OLD secondary logos.
Serving as a badge of honor, the secondary mark portrays a strong reminder of the rich heritage of Bucks basketball in Milwaukee:

1. Established in 1968, the Bucks are proud to be one of the five longest tenured NBA franchises remaining in their founding city.

2. The basketball that is alluded to in the primary logo begins to take concrete shape behind the antlers in this logo.

3. A stylized version of the subtle "M" from the New Buck's chest in the primary logo is now called out. This brings additional focus to our home city within our new identity.

Milwaukee Bucks new logo page

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright
Secondary logo, detail.

Other than the typography, this feels like a completely different project. The super streamlined curves on the basketball look like they belong more on the Houston Rockets' logo library than here. The "M" is very unappealing to me and has nothing to do visually with anything else (not even the swooshy basketball) in the system. It has a James-Bond-villain vibe to it that doesn't go very well with the much more earthy typography and color palette.

The outline of Wisconsin solidifies the importance of the entire state to the underlying fabric of the new Bucks brand. The basketball/antler element once again appears, representing a geographical anchor over the city of Milwaukee. This is the symbolic expression of the team as a statewide unifying force. This is the only element in which each of the three colors in the new Bucks palette appears together, introducing blue while retaining a strong green identity and use of cream as the foundational color.

Milwaukee Bucks new logo page

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright
Tertiary logo, detail.

This is another example of the swooshy basketball being completely mismatched. You have the shape of the state of Wisconsin and the typography with all their blunt angles and corners and then this ball from space. Also, this logo could have done without the inner blue stroke and outer cream stroke. (And without the ball). Then it could have looked like something you would see on a roadside diner in the 1970s.

Unifying all the elements is a custom typeface, MKE Block Varsity, inspired both by traditional varsity lettering and Milwaukee's industrial heritage.

Doubleday & Cartwright project page

New Logos for Milwaukee Bucks by Doubleday & Cartwright
"MKE Block Varsity" font.

Apart from indeed being the unifying element, the font is what gives some personality to the identity. It has no chiseling (for now), it has no spikes (for now), and it has no multi-stroking (for now), serving as a great respite from the usual sports typography. It's almost dumb in how basic and unpolished it is but that's what makes it work really well and give the identity some visual, industrial strength.

New logo introduction. Motion design team got a little too excited.

New uniforms have not been released yet and there isn't anything to see in application but, overall, this is a positive change — despite my grievances with the ball and "M" — that should give the team a bold look to work with next season.

Dove, you see, is owned by Unilever—the multinational consumer goods behemoth last seen being an oversensitive penis over the definition of mayonnaise —which happens to be one of BuzzFeed's major advertising partners.

Dirk Nowitzki Jokes Shaun Livingston Was Impressed With His Size After The Groin Hit

by Spencer Lund
Krankota

He is a national treasure.

The tape from Saturday’s Warriors-Mavs game didn’t look good for Shaun Livingston, but Dirk Nowitzki was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Nut shots aren’t cool, as Mark Cuban complained after the game, but Livingston has never been accused of being a dirty player before and Dirk appeared to forgive him for the transgression. Yes, the NBA suspended Livingston for one game, but as far as the Mavs were concerned it was over and done with.

Dirk was pretty chill about the whole thing after the game:

Dirk on Shaun Livingston: "He's actually a really, really good dude, so I have to give him the benefit of the doubt."

— Earl K. Sneed (@EarlKSneed) April 5, 2015

Dirk jokingly on the Shaun Livingston low blow: "I really enjoyed his tight grip. Yeah, I really enjoyed that." #DALvsGSW

— Earl K. Sneed (@EarlKSneed) April 5, 2015

He even joked yesterday about it:

“We talked a little bit afterwards, and he said ‘you know for a white guy, it’s pretty impressive.'”

Then he got on a carousel and had more fun than most eight-year-olds.

Instagram Photo

 

Dirk Nowitzki will retire one of these summer’s and we’ll be really sad. Not just for that impossible-to- defend one-legged step-back jumper, or those high arcing three’s from the top of the key, but for light-hearted comments like the one above.

Ever since winning the title in 2011, a huge weight has been lifted from the German’s shoulders, and he’s luxuriated in the twilight of one of the finest careers ever, and certainly the best ever by a European import. He’s just a guy you want to drink some Leffe beer with and joke about whether he ever used DeShawn Stevenson’s in-apartment ATM.

Always do you Dirk.
