BOYWITHUKE & OLIVER TREE DROP AMERICAN PSYCHO-INSPIRED MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “SICK OF U” OUT NOW

LISTEN TO “Sick Of U” HERE
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Gold-selling singer, songwriter, and producer BoyWithUke unveils the cinematic music video for his latest single “Sick Of U” feat. Oliver Tree, out now via Mercury Records/Republic Records—watch HERE

In the visual for “Sick of U,” BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree reimagine a classic scene from American Psycho with a twist. BoyWithUke does his best Patrick Bateman impersonation as he hacks up his guest—who sings back to him from a trash bag and while the dirt covers his final resting place. It matches the manic push and pull of this rapidly rising anthem from this dynamic duo.

BoyWithUke built anticipation for the track on social media prior to its arrival. He teased the song on TikTok with a series of posts, generating millions of views on videos of a bloody Oliver Tree in BoyWithUke’s signature mask and even getting his instantly recognizable hairstyle straightened. As for the song itself, the alternative pop disruptor breaks boundaries once again, dipping in and out of glitchy production punctuated by tightly threaded organic instrumentation. Meanwhile, he and Oliver Tree trade catchy lines worthy of the ultimate breakup text. Building towards an emotional sendoff, BoyWithUke reminds, “Life goes on and on.
 
BoyWithUke continues racing towards a major mainstream breakthrough. His following has grown beyond 6 million on TikTok, 2.5 million on YouTube, and 2.2 million on Spotify. His full-length debut album, Serotonin Dreams, only fueled this explosion. Beyond tallying hundreds of millions of streams, The Honey Pop hailed it as “the album of our dreams” and raved, “each song on Serotonin Dreams snakes into our minds in a different way, making some of our deepest emotions feel understood and making some of our favorite playlists feel like they just found a new winner to add.”     
 
Serotonin Dreams features collaborations with various artists, including blackbear (“IDGAF”), mxmtoon (“Prairies”), and Powfu (“Contigo”). Consequence declared BoyWithUke has proven himself to be particularly prolific” and “‘Understand’ shows potential to be the next of BoyWithUke’s hits.” Leading up to the anxiously awaited release of Serotonin DreamsBoyWithUke dropped his viral singles “Long Drives” and IDGAF feat. blackbearBillboard praised “IDGAF” as “a gently heartbroken kiss-off anthem about moving on from a toxic ex,” while Ones To Watch described it as “perfectly petty in all the right ways, BoyWithUke and black bear match earworm, radio-ready production with unapologetic low blows.” Indie Shuffle proclaimed, BoyWithUke has slowly become a household name in the indie music scene; now working with Blackbear, the combo of melancholia and high-energy pop has made for a gallery of pure entertainment and an addictive earworm at that!”
 
The tracks followed BoyWithUke’s 2021 gold-certified smash hit “Toxic,” which has amassed over 1.2 billion global streams to date and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for two consecutive weeks. Not to mention, his record-breaking live performance of the song for Genius’ Open Mic series is the platform’s “the #1 most-viewed video on Genius with over 86 million views and counting.
 
Earlier this summer, BoyWithUke sold out his first-ever headline shows in New York and Los Angeles.
 
You may be sick of your ex, but you’ll never be sick of BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree!

About BoyWithUke
What do we know about BoyWithUke? If you quickly scan TikTok, you can figure out he is a musical artist who writes and produces all of his own music, creating songs in his dorm room on GarageBand while hiding his face from the public with his now signature glowing mask. Take a deeper look, and you’ll see he frequently posts “minute long songs,” many times written in response to requests from fans. His biggest hit to date was written after a fan commented “make a song about toxic friends plzzzx,” and the response was the song “Toxic.” The song describes how it feels when you realize all your friends are terrible people (people you’d probably be better off without), but the thought of being alone makes you feel even worse. The song has taken over as it vaulted into the Top 10 at Alternative Radio and has reached nearly 1.2 billion global streams to date. Not to mention, his performance of “Toxic” has emerged as the platform’s second highest-viewed Genius video to date with nearly 60 million views and counting. Up next, he will be continuing his sold out international headline tour and releasing his debut album Serotonin Dreams that features new single “IDGAF” ft. blackbear. The project will be the follow up to previous full length projects Melatonin Dreams, Fever Dreams, Trouvaille EP, and his latest Faded EP (featuring numerous songs created from his TikTok “minute long songs” project).

I’m so happy to be able to put together this celebration for a band that meant so much to us and music,

ABOUT THE BLACK CROWES:

In 1990, when journalists were lamenting the death of rock, as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, Atlanta’s Black Crowes gave the genre a swift and much needed kick in the ass with Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles “Jealous Again,” “Twice As Hard,” “She Talks To Angels,” and the break-through cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle,” the band immediately took the rock world by storm, topping Rolling Stone’s “Best New American Band Readers Poll” in late 1990. The Black Crowes went on to release eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way; they sold out shows around the world; had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member; got kicked off a tour with ZZ Top for insulting the sponsor; got screwed by bad record deals; got married and divorced, fought amongst themselves and against the rest of the world. In other words, they’ve done everything a legendary rock group should do. For more information, please follow @theblackcrowes or visit www.TheBlackCrowes.com

H.K. Keller Auctions Announce Your Chance to Bid on Rare Autograph Collection via H.K. Keller (globenewswire) by 360 Magazine

 H.K. Keller & Rare Autograph Collection

H.K. Keller Auctions Announce Your Chance to Bid on Rare Autograph Collection

With nearly 60 years’ experience and now with their third generation of auctioneers, H.K. Keller have helped hundreds of sellers and thousands of buyers find and bid on their perfect item.

After uncovering Theodore Stillwell’s vintage and unique Rare Autograph Collection, H.K. Keller are now excited to offer this one-of-a-kind sale to the public.

Elderly Sister’s Discovery Uncovers a World of Autograph Treasures

When it was finally time to move out of their life-long family home and into a retirement facility, sisters Gloria and Nancy Stillwell of Ephrata, PA knew they couldn’t take it all with them. With the assistance of a local real estate agent, they contacted an auctioneer to help them with the transition.

While there were some things in the home with little value, a trunk in the attic caught the auctioneer’s eye. The ladies were aware of their father’s hobby, but they weren’t sure people would actually want the autographs that he had collected.

Inside the trunk were hundreds and hundreds of autographs from the 1940s and 1950’s. These autographs included famous athletes, military heroes, cultural icons, celebrities, heads of state, and world leaders.

World-Wide Life

Mr. Theodore Stillwell was born in 1907 and lived his whole life in the Ephrata, PA area. He was a career US postal worker. Although he never travelled, he enjoyed living a “world-wide” life vicariously through writing hundreds of letters throughout the 1940s. His letters afforded him the opportunity to collect an array of autographs, photos, flags, military patches, and correspondence.

Highlights include Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, who became the first African American to play in Major League Baseball. This 1947 letter personalized to Stillwell refers to Robinson being too new to the Brooklyn Dodgers team to request a baseball. There is also a Honus Wagner signed photo and a Mrs. Eleanor Gehrig (Lou Gehrig) letter. This is an autographed football from Amos Alonzo Stagg, an American athlete who played for Yale in 1885-1889, Springfield YMCA and college coach. There are signed items from American manufacturer, Aviator, and movie producer, Howard Hughes, and from Gen. George S. Patton, plus even more.

One of Stillwell’s letters to Patton dated March 20, 1943, is in the Library of Congress and is noted in the dissertation “In need of a hero? The Creation and Use of the Legend of General George S. Patton, Jr” by Nathan C. Jones, curator, historian, author, and museologist at The General George Patton Museum.

One-Of-A-Kind Opportunity

This impressive collection was discovered in December of 2021 in a trunk in the attic of the family home. This collection was reviewed by JSA, James Spence Authentication. Notable autographs received a Letter of Authenticity (LOA) or a Basic Certificate (COA).

This exciting auction is an opportunity for the public to secure many unique and one-of-a-kind autographs.

“We are honored to have discovered this treasure chest,” said Tim Keller, lead auctioneer, “Not only for the sisters, but also for the fact that these autographs, letters, and flags will be treasured by others for years to come. We are happy to bring this collection out of a foot locker to be enjoyed by the world.”

While online bidding is open now, a live auctioneer will be selling the items on Tuesday, June 7th, 2022 at 11:00am Eastern Time through an internet-only simulcast auction.

Beyond the music itself, the community aspect of Hangout remains at the core of the festival’s experience.

This includes measures related to diversity, equity & inclusion, taking steps toward environmental sustainability, and supporting local charities. More information on these actions can be found on Hangout’s website.

Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro – Super Luxury Group

Global connector and real estate entrepreneur, Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro, has grown to become one of the latest disrupters in luxury real estate. Over the years, he has developed unique relationships and sold luxury homes to public figures as well as celebrities from all walks of life, amidst accolades from different quarters. In addition to being a real estate talent on the rise of global repute, the founder and CEO of Super Luxury Group is known for his adventures as a skydiver and jetsetter.

We got the chance to speak with Alvaro last week and managed to get insights on how he manages his success and talked to us about his upcoming goals.

What are the objectives of Super Luxury Group?

Super Luxury Group (SLG) is a luxury real-estate media network that focuses on helping the affluent to celebritize and sell high-end properties from Miami to other jet-set locations through proven media, luxury brands, and influencer collaborations.

How have these objectives changed as you get more recognition?

We have a clear vision on what we want to achieve, so we are excited about the continuous journey we have ahead.

Coming from a different country, it’s not always easy to establish connections. What would you say is your biggest tip?

To be humble, energetic, positive, and to always find ways to add value to the right people around you.

In my case, I started by arranging luxury villa rentals and experiences at some iconic destinations, which led to build strong relationships, acquire more knowledge, and therefore, more opportunities.

While it is straightforward, is there a reason you chose the name Super Luxury Group?

The name of Super Luxury Group has a very meaningful story tied to it. As I began my entrepreneurial career doing luxury villa rentals in the Caribbean, I decided to take a leap of faith and expand the business towards Europe – which led me to travel for many months visiting each country and connecting with other companies to build a strong foundation. As I got back home in Madrid, I sat down with my grandfather – a successful visionary and consultant for many on the Fortune 500 list – to talk about the business model and vision for the company and my future. He then drew a logo on a napkin and handed it over to me – it said: “Super Luxury Group.” He then carried on explaining the reason behind it. This was my last conversation with him as a few weeks later he passed away. Therefore, I keep this name and company tied very closely to my heart.

What made you choose Florida?

Florida, especially Miami, represents lifestyle. We wanted an international hub where top players work and play. Even though we operate in many other destinations, Miami will always be the heart of the company, as we work with many successful entrepreneurs and celebrities that trust us every day with their real estate needs.

Are there any international services that clients can contact SLG for?

Yes, we have the same business model we have in Miami in other jet set locations, such as Bahamas, St. Barts, DR, Tulum, Ibiza, Mykonos, French Riviera, etc.

What else do you wish to achieve with SLG in the coming years?

Luxury TV show (which we are already working on it), to host large conferences related to luxury living, and develop our line of villa/hotels.

Any exciting collaborations you wish to share?

There are always great collaborations in place, but there is one related to the NFT world that is going to be mind-blowing – stay tuned!

Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro has built strong connections with the community and created a firm that helps buyers look for a new home. When working with Alvaro’s team at SLG, you will be able to use his connections and knowledge to find what you are looking for. His strong reputation is essential and aligns with his company’s vision and goals.

Super Luxury Group

SLG is an acclaimed Miami luxury real estate media network committed to connect and help the affluent to celebritize and sell high-end properties through influencer marketing. By using the power of proven media, luxury brands, NFT & Crypto integrations, and influencer collaborations, the Super Luxury Group team strives for the best results: matching the clients’ lifestyle with properties that reflect and cater their personal needs is a priority. SLG’s ability to find the best homes is attributed to its team’s knowledge and determination.

To the world, he is better known as Halston: the first American fashion designer who changed fashion forever. The new Netflix limited series Halston tells the story of fashion legend Roy Halston Frowick.

Created by Ryan Murphy and directed by Daniel Minahan, the five-episode series is adapted from the 1991 book Simply Halston: The Untold Story by Steven Gaines. It focuses on the rise and fall of the late designer (played by Ewan McGregor) known for dressing socialites and celebrities–notably Babe Paley, Liza Minnelli, and Jackie O.

With being the designer that brought American fashion onto the grid, many have been interested in Halston’s life. It is not the first time that his glamorous and tortured story has been put in the spotlight (2019 documentary Halston). But Ryan Murphy takes Halston and produces a version of him that does not try to escape his queerness. Some might not agree with this version of him, but Halston definitely shows us that with fame and status, stardom can also be very lonely.

Episode 1: “Becoming Halston”

The opening shot brings us to Halston’s hometown in 1933: a farm in Evansville, Indiana. Quite creative since his early days, Episode 1 shows Halston taking feathers from the chicken coop and making a hat for his mom. By 1961, he is known for designing Jackie Kennedy’s pillbox hats. Unfortunately, by 1968 Jackie O stops wearing them, and Halston’s hats become an afterthought.

The intro shows us how quick trends fade, and Halston sets out on his journey to rebrand himself. He tries to take a page from Ralph Lifshitz (now globally known as Ralph Lauren). Halston tries to create an exclusive American couture line for Bergdorf Goodman. However, the fashion world is not interested in his black and white dresses and not a single piece sells.

Unfazed, Halston meets up with illustrator Joe Eula (played by David Pittu), convincing him to join the Halston team. Eula tells Halston, “You want to be Balenciaga. There’s already a Balenciaga. What we need is to figure out your signature.” At the same time, Halston is introduced to Liza Minnelli (Krysta Rodriguez), who compares Halston’s pillbox hats to her famous mother Judy Garland: “You and me are living under the shadow of something, and we’re both trying to do the same thing.” Minnelli becomes Halston’s first muse, shaping her into a friend and collaborator over the course of the series.

Securing funding of $100,000, Halston gathers a small crew to set up shop: Joe Eula, model Elsa Peretti (Rebecca Dayan), and junior partner Joel Schumacher (Rory Culkin). Halston takes Schumacher’s idea of a flowy, dyed fabric and makes dresses out of them. Though the show doesn’t lead to any sales, it gains American socialite Barbara “Babe” Paley’s interest. During the meeting with Paley (Regina Schneider), Halston shows her Ultrasuede synthetic trench coats, claiming “It’s sexy. It’s comfort. It’s freedom.” She takes one in every color.

Episode 2: “Versailles”

The star of this episode is the iconic Battle of Versailles, which pitted French designers against American designers. In the French establishment is Yves Saint LaurentPierre CardinEmanuel UngaroMarc Bohan (Dior), and Hubert de Givenchy. The American establishment is composed of Oscar de la RentaStephen BurrowsBill BlassAnne Klein, and Halston.

Though at first, Halston was not interested in the 1973 fundraiser for the Versailles, which also doubled as a means to get the American fashion name out to the world. Despite every woman in Central Park wearing his Ultrasuede, Halston tells publicist Eleanor Lambert (Kelly Bishop) that he can’t do a fundraiser because he’s broke. Trying to balance art and commerce, Eleanor sets Halston up with David Mahoney who wants to buy Halston’s licensing, proposing mass production. However, Halston initially refuses, saying “you’re only as good as the people you dress.”

Norton Simon sponsors Halston’s team to go to the Versailles show, and Halston convinces Minnelli to tag along and perform for him. With his entourage, they travel to Paris with 24 designs in an attempt to show their worth to the fashion industry. While nothing seemed to be going right at first – the backdrop size is wrong, costumes have not arrived, looks need to be designed – Minnelli forces Halston to pick himself up as his nerves get the better of him. And Halston does, slaying the runway with a 70s purple sequin dress, topped with a feathered hand fan that gets him a standing ovation. Original designs can be seen here.

By the end of the episode, we see a glimpse of Halston wanting protection from his “magical” childhood that was actually lonely and scary. He signs the contract with David, “If I sign that contract, I must never, ever, be left to feel unappreciated, underfunded, unprotected, unsafe. Promise me that, David.” While not everyone agrees with him selling his name, Halston gets new cash flow at the expense of his trademark name, pushing him through to stardom.

Episode 3: “The Sweet Smell of Success”

Focusing on Halston’s first fragrance, the third episode reminds us of Halston’s roots and the scents that created him. In the opening scene, we watch Elsa design a sensual perfume bottle for Halston, though the gravity defying perfume stopper is not sold to Mahoney. In an interesting conversation about phallic symbolisms, Halston is told the stopper is impossible to manufacture.

Arguing that creativity wins commercialism, Halston writes a check for $50,000 to pay for his own manufacturer, unwilling to compromise the exclusivity of the design. To create his scent, we are met with Adele (Vera Farmiga), who forces Halston to dig into his past for scents that evoke emotions. Adele bends Halston to her demands, and we get to see Halston’s inner, broken child more than ever in this episode. They discuss different scents and the memories Halston has connected to them: his fascination with scentless orchids, spring grass, tobacco, and his lover’s jockstrap.

Liza is off getting married and Halston has a breakdown. His lover boy, Victor Hugo (Gian Franco Rodriguez), points out that Halston just wants yes men and loyalty, and not everyone can do that for him. While work-life balance is not something that Halston achieves, his perfume becomes one of America’s best-selling perfumes, achieving $85 million in sales within the first two years. This led Halston to launch a plethora of new products–including suitcases, sunglasses, and carpets.

Despite all his success, we see that Halston does not find much love at Studio 54. In the heartbreaking final scene, we watch Hugo witnessing his lover having sex with another partner. While people are lined up buying products by Halston, he does not seem to have anything for himself.

Episode 4: “The Party’s Over”

Studio 54-era of Halston’s life: This episode shows Halston’s spiral into drugs and partying. The surplus and gluttony in overwhelming success and his cocaine addiction has him dropping the ball on his business, Liza faints on the dancefloor due to her drug habit, and there is a vent death at Studio 54.

Calvin Klein takes reign as top designer, and Halston spends his time cursing his competitor out. David Mahoney believes that jeans could be Halston’s next best creation and proposes the idea to Halston, in which is declined. As he loses his self-control, Halston designs have stopped selling at a growing rate. On the other hand, Elsa starts to be successful at Tiffany’s as a jewelry designer. Halston’s ego takes a problem with this, as he thinks he is the only one with talent and that Elsa should be thankful for him and give him credit. Belittling everyone around him due to jealousy, Halston pushes everyone away, left with nothing but his own name.

Halston’s mother dies unexpectedly, and this changes his mind about designing jeans when he sees a Calvin Klein commercial (starring Brooke Shields, originally from the 1980s). His ego takes a beating when David tells him he is “six months too late,” and Halston is no longer setting the fashion trends.

Things don’t look up for Halston either, as Mahoney tries to take Norton private and fails, resulting in a change of management. The AIDS pandemic is seen through the lens of Victor who tests positive for HIV, and Liza checks into rehab. Unsurprisingly, Halston is left in isolation by the end of it. With no other choice, he becomes the inhouse designer for JCPenney for some petty cash, and we no longer see the Halston that believed in exclusivity and creative control.

Episode 5: “Critics”

With designing how JCPenney, Halston is no longer having any fun. With pushing everyone around him away, he is only left with his assistant by his side and that is only because she is “getting paid to do so.” Halston begins showing up to the office at dinner, pushing off his deadlines, all while snorting large amounts of cocaine.

The company replaces Halston with designer John David Ridge (Jack Mikesell), the first person that lets Halston know he is an embarrassment, “How dare you be so irresponsible with the empire you spent your whole life working for?”

After being diagnosed with HIV and forced to retire, Halston’s life is put into perspective, and he really thinks about what he wants out of this life. Perhaps afraid that he might die without a final design to call his own, he seeks out his friend Martha Graham, and designs a spandex collection for her show. The reviews for this design gives Halston the acceptance that he was searching for the entire life and he finally admits that “Halston” was not just him, it was his entire team.

The series ends with Halston leaving to the West Coast and spending the rest of his days along the Pacific Ocean, mixed with tearful snippets of him watching Graham’s Persephone.

“We’re given one name… just one. And that’s all we have when we’re on the earth. And that’s all we leave behind us when we’re gone. I wasn’t precious enough with mine.” – Halston to Joe Eula, Halston Episode 5.

While five episodes is not enough to talk about Halston’s magnificent life, we get to see the grandeur of Halston’s reign in Ryan Murphy’s rendition. Captivating and intoxication, we see his friendships and intimate scenes unfolding in the series. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, you cannot deny the legacy that is Halston.

“Halston” premiered May 14 on Netflix.
