See Public School and SoulCycle’s New Collection

Uber-cool designers and fashion industry darlings Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of Public School have launched a special collection of athleisure gear and activewear for SoulCycle.

The collaboration which features crewnecks in terry fabrics and a hoodie with grosgrain ribbon detailing–ranging between $ 65 and $ 655­–is a new take on versatile activewear, meant to get riders from the studio to the street without sacrificing style. Chow and Osborne, who are both big SoulCycle fans, were inspired by their signature monochrome streetwear pieces and translated this aesthetic into the seven-piece collection available now at SoulCycle studios nationwide and on soul-cycle.com.

16 Years Later, That Song From Donnie Darko Still Makes Me Want to Cry on a School Bus

Next to certain smells, nothing triggers my memory faster than a song. Like most people, I imagine, I’ll find myself going about my day as normal when, all of a sudden, I hear it: a song that rips me out of present day and dumps me back in a memory I’d all but forgotten about, like some sort of audio time capsule.

Hearing a certain Kate Nash song is a one-way ticket to the foot of my college boyfriend’s bed, the spot where we broke up for the sixth time. One note of Carol King’s «Where You Lead» and I’m in the passenger seat of my parents’ rusted Honda while my mom spills Diet Coke all over the cream-colored leather.

That same visceral sensation of memory rushes through me anytime I hear Gary Jules’s «Mad World,» which I keep running into because of Donnie Darko‘s 16th anniversary. The song, which is a cover of the 1983 Tears For Fears classic, is me as a melodramatic teenager, tearfully staring out the grimy window of my bus ride home, crying just to cry. It’s also me pasting gloomy lyrics like «I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad / The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had» in my AIM away message (dark gray background, light blue font, asterisks everywhere).

It still holds up.

Arkansas High School Football Player Gets Eligible By Getting Married To 17-Year-Old Girl

This one comes to us from @markwebbclfs, an Arkansas expert who knew I’d be all over this story of how things operate in Hog country. Mark knew that I’d be fascinated by the thought of a high school football player getting eligible as a transfer by using a rarely used rule — in Arkansas you can transfer high schools to play football and be eligible if you’re married. 

Not joking.

I’ll let KATV explain a little more about what’s going down at Mountain Pine High School:

After a winless season last year, Mountain Pine opened this season with a 35-0 loss to Jessieville. But the next week the Red Devils won. Then in week three, the team won again. Mountain Pine is now 7-1 and heading for the playoffs.

So, what changed between week one and week two? A star player became eligible.

Mountain Pine has several good players, but this player has rushed for over 100 yards in every game. He has scored 16 touchdowns in those seven victories.He was a transfer student initially ruled ineligible by the Arkansas Activities Association.

He gained eligibility thanks to a little-known and seldom-used exception: He got married to a student in the district and moved in with her parents.

The station isn’t naming names because the married couple are both 17.

I thought I’d heard it all with high school football until this came along. I’ve seen 400-pound running backs. We’ve seen wild endings. I’ve never heard of a kid getting married to get eligible. Never. Ever.

Doing a little i-Team work, I learned that this marriage rule is available in Michigan. Atlanta high schools seem to have a similar rule.

Look, I can’t knock the hustle these high schoolers and their families put into eligibility and like 45 games of a high school career. There’s nothing wrong with bending a couple rules here and there. One player at Mountain Pine shouldn’t make this much difference.

The haters need to stop the married guy. DBAP.

Marshawn Lynch Is Spending His One-Game Suspension Bullying High School Players On The Practice Field

Here’s a good way to let out a little frustration while serving your one-week suspension. Instead of bullying refs on the field, Beast Mode went back to his old high school this week and decided to destroy some poor high school players at their practice.

It’s like setting Madden to rookie mode when you just want to get a win under your belt. Marshawn needed to blow off steam and get some on-field reps while he’s suspended, so he hit his old stomping grounds to truck stick some kids before they go home and do their calculus homework. Genius.

You can bank that that’s the best scout team running back those kids will ever see.

Side note: I’m sure the Raiders are THRILLED with this.

A week ago today, the reason Marshawn is suspended

Texas High School Volleyballer Has To Win An ESPY For This Save

I’ve been sitting on this one since Monday afternoon when I first saw this video of high schooler Autumn Finney of Decatur High School (TX) with one of the best saves in volleyball history. I don’t know much about volleyball history, but I know enough to know that Autumn will likely get some sort of ESPY out of this one. Her save has even reached the phone/tablet/computer of Keri Walsh Jennings who seemed to think it was pretty good.

Decatur is 25-13 and has won 3 of its last 4 matches.

Here’s the angle that will put this all in perspective:

Welcome to the Real World, Kid: Prince George Is Apparently Already Tired of Going to School

Prince George only started at Thomas’s Battersea school a few weeks ago, but according to his dad, Prince William, the 4-year-old is already pretty over it. While at a royal engagement on Tuesday, William reportedly told mother-of-two Louise Smith, «I just dropped George off and he didn’t want to go.» The duke may have had an idea that the George would tire of it, as he made this remark after the first day of school on Sept. 7: «We are all seeing how long that lasts before he doesn’t want to go.» Maybe it’s the strain of having another little sibling on the way?

Some advice for you, George: I can obviously see why you’d rather be at home, riding a pony around your living room, watching Peppa Pig, or shaking hands with former President Barack Obama while wearing a monogrammed bathrobe, but your education is really important. One day, you’ll thank your parents for putting you in such a prestigious school and making you mingle with regular kids rather than being homeschooled by some stuffy baroness. As for now, just stay strong, Cambridge!

Brawl Breaks Out After High School Football Game, Cop Shuts It Down By Pepper Spraying Everyone

Here’s one way to shut down a post-game high school football brawl: just walk over calmly and empty a can of pepper spray on the crowd.

You’ve seen these high school fights before, they happen all the time. You could wake up on any given Saturday morning in the Fall and find a video of high school teams going at it. What I bet you haven’t seen, though, is this pepper spray technique. Old buddy in blue shut that thing down with the QUICKNESS.

Details from the Review-Journal:

Clark County School District police used pepper spray to break up a fight on the field between Canyon Springs and Basic football players after the Pioneers’ 20-15 victory over the Wolves on Friday night at Basic High School.

The brunt of the spray was directed toward a group of Canyon Springs players and coaches, though at least one Basic staffer was targeted.

Several Pioneers, including coach Gus McNair, screamed in pain as they walked back to their sideline. McNair’s prepubescent son also was hit with pepper spray and cried for several minutes.

Now, maybe he could’ve tried a little harder to break it up before he decided to burn everybody’s eyeballs. The fight had barely gotten going at that point, but you can’t deny the effectiveness. Expect to see this method used more often.

The Unusual Reason Prince George Isn’t Allowed to Have a Best Friend at School

Prince George began classes at Thomas’s Battersea School in London this month, and we’ve already gotten a few details about his new life as a student — for instance, he goes by George Cambridge and eats gourmet meals at lunch. Another new fact about George’s school program sounds a little weird but actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it.

It was reported this week that though George will be encouraged to make pals with the cute little commoner children in his class, he’s not allowed to have a best friend. Now, before you start feeling sorry for the 4-year-old who will one day rule all of England, keep in mind that none of the other children in George’s class are allowed to have a singular BFF; Loose Women host Jane Moore, who lives near the school and has friends whose children attend, spoke on the show about the policy, which discourages the kids from getting too close to one another. «There are signs everywhere saying ‘be kind’ — that’s the ethos of the school,» she said, adding, «They don’t encourage you to have best friends.» She went on, «There’s a policy that if your child is having a party — unless every child is invited — you don’t give out the invites in class.»

Basically, Thomas’s goal is to prevent any of the students from feeling ostracized — and something tells us George is going to make so many little friends, he won’t even want to choose just one of them to invite over for a playdate at Kensington Palace or a weekend sleepover at Balmoral. The more, the merrier!

A Woman Has Been Arrested After Attempting to Break Into Prince George’s School

A 40-year-old woman was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly trying to break into Prince George’s school, Thomas’s Battersea, in London. According to the Metropolitan Police, the incident took place on Tuesday when the woman tried to gain access to the school’s premises. She was eventually taken to a South London police station, where she is currently in custody. «We are working with the school, which is attended by His Royal Highness Prince George, to review its security arrangements after the incident,» the police said in a statement. A spokesperson for Kensington Palace told ABC News that the royal family is «aware of the incident but cannot comment any further.»

The news comes nearly a week after George’s first day at the school, where he shyly held his father Prince William’s hand when he met with the head of the lower school, Helen Haslem, before class. Unfortunately, his mom, Kate Middleton, was unable to be there for the special moment, as she is expecting her third child and once again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum.
