Within the first twenty feet, Andrew Schmidt was sold on it. Prior to his first visit to Superpedestrian’s office in Cambridge, Schmidt knew enough about the Copenhagen Wheel to see the potential. He had been introduced to the electric bike startup by a friend. The Superpedestrian team was looking for someone to do the sort of marketing work Schmidt was currently doing for Puma. But up until that ride, there understandably was some uncertainty. More

Fetch vs. Fresh: A Look Back at Style Trends of 2004 vs. 2014
Nostalgia
In the grand scheme of things, 2004 wasn't that long ago. We still live our lives in basically the same way. Many of the cultural mores and conventions of that year still hold today, and we love the products of a decade ago with the same fervor as when they emerged ("Mean Girls" remains the most quoted movie ever). Still, a lot has changed — especially in the arena of fashion. No, the difference isn't as readily available as if we were wearing waistcoats and corsets a decade ago, but the styles have inevitably changed. Take a look at how the trends have shifted from the year that Facebook was invented (yes, really).

Ariana Grande, Ty Segall, More Albums out Today

One of the most highly anticipated pop albums of the year drops this week, but don't let that pull your attention from some of the lesser known acts with new records as well, including a semi-local eclectic pop troupe, a new indie release from some Canadian vets, and brand new sounds from a band whose title involves instruments snacking on other instruments.

Should I Leave the House Today? 5 Reasons to Go to the Movies Before Summer Ends
Movies
Traditionally, the end of the summer isn't the most exciting time to go the movies. The big-budget blockbusters have already come out, and the early fall Oscar bait is still weeks away. Plus, you live in Boston. It's still nice out (and won't be for long), you might be moving or helping someone move this week, and of course, there's Netflix. So why go to the movies this week? Here are a couple scenarios in which you could reasonably find yourself that you can remedy with a quick trip to your local theater:

Accessible By T: 5 Breweries Around Boston That are Worth the Trip
Boston
To go along with this sweet late summer weather, we thought letting you know about some of the golden nectar (beer) that is available a short jaunt outside Boston was a swell idea. While new microbreweries seem to be popping up every year, here are our favorite spots to get a pint or two of what we think is the elixir of life!

Don’t even try to bring that “last week of summer” stuff up in here. Unless you’re a student or teacher going back to school, summer ends at midnight on September 22 and not a minute sooner. Here’s some stuff to do to help you make the most of the fourth-to-last week of summer.

I’m a Cop, What Are You So Upset About?
Commentary
Oh, hello! I didn’t see you there, fellow human being with a pulse and probably a family or other such persons unknown to me that have a reasonable interest in your continued existence. You sure are lucky I didn’t blow your face clean off your body via the gun on my hip, what with my being a cop and all. Heh, we police really don’t like being sneaked up on, you know? More

Broke Beats: Kembe X – ‘Kembe X EP’
BDCWire
Chicago's Kembe X is smooth. Smooth enough to to have his new mixtape "Kembe X EP" be the highlight in a week the boasted new jams from Nocando, Milo,Busdriver, and Run the motherfucking Jewels. The 18-year-old raps through the tape's 5-song run without hesitation, turning beats to baby food with his bullet delivery. He's got an absolute monster of a flow, but it goes down like cold beer - and to that I say run it, young man, run it. More
