I’m finally 21. I have walked this planet for 21 years. How is this real?!

Turning 21 means a lot of things for The Whisper Box. I can now officially gain entry to 21+ concert venues without asking for an artist interview beforehand. This means that even if I can’t sit down with a performer, I can still enjoy the show and review it for any publication.

Oh, yes, and let’s not forget the best part:

Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015 @ Jack Shainman Gallery

Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015 by Hank Willis Thomas @ Jack Shainman Gallery on W 24th

Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015 by Hank Willis Thomas @ Jack Shainman Gallery on W 24th

After reading about this exhibit in New York Magazine a few weeks ago, I made it my business to see Hank Willis Thomas’ “Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015” at the Jack Shainman Gallery.

My obsession for the culture of the 1920s and 1950s really made me appreciate this exhibit. Interestingly, all of these portraits are advertisements striped of the words that go along with them. I wish I could go back in time to see Thomas’ earlier exhibit of the same concept, titled “Unbranded: Reflections in Black by Corporate America, 1968-2008.” I’m sure it was amazing.

The exhibit really makes you think about how different picture ads would be without words. They just look like normal pictures you’d see in a history textbook or on the wall in a nice house.

Not surprisingly, some of my favorites in the exhibit were ads from the 1920s and the 1950s. And also the ones that featured couples. Can’t help my hopeless romantic eye!

April Favorites: Detroit D, Square-Faced Dogs & Grace Helbig’s Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

April Faves

Alrighty. April is over, May is here, and hopefully you’ve got those ridiculous Justin Timberlake “It’s Gonna Be May” meme laughs out of your system.

The beginning of April seemed kind of dull for pop culture news but things got interesting towards the end.

Here are my April favorites!

Favorite News Articles

1. Ariana Grande’s dad intervenes on Big Sean’s Instagram comment. Detroit Sean? Hmmmm… The D is not…lemme just leave that alone…
