or collaborating with artists such as Takashi Murakami – is possible. Wallpaper* worked with Abloh on a variety of projects. We were lucky to preview Project Geländewagen, his boundary-pushing collaboration with Mercedes-Benz in our September 2020 Style Special issue, which reinterpreted the German brand’s classic G-Class SUV series. For the same issue, we invited Abloh to take over our front cover. In the most groundbreaking interpretation of our limited-edition subscriber cover yet, he created an understated, tactile and radical design, which saw a scissor graphic invite the reader to cut the magazine in half. As an added element of

Michigan high school shooting suspect, 15, appears at court hearingEthan Crumbley, to be tried as an adult, seen on video during hearing after four students killed in Tuesday attack The United States of America will never learn no matter how many prayers they say 👎 Yes charge the parents who gave him open access to the gun & whose only concern after he shot a dozen other people was to tell him not to talk to the police. No statement however mealy mouthed & bogus of sorrow or condolence or apology for the premeditated murder their son did. Am I a cynic for assuming that as the 15 year old 'suspect' was taken into custody alive and well with a handgun in his possession, he was white?
