Believe It or Not: I Actually Want to Wear This Apron
Photo Illustration by Scouted/The Daily Beast/Hedley & BennettCooking more means one thing: more dirty clothes. I’m not exactly a messy cooker or messy eater—things just happen. I feel like most of these incidents happen when I’m baking; flour is a nemesis of mine for sure. But that doesn’t mean cooking isn’t just as bad, if not more treacherous (see: tomato sauce). Now, aprons themselves aren’t new but this one from Hedley & Bennett feels like something you’d see in a Michelin star restaurant — and that’s just the start.The Hedley & Bennett Denver Crossback is my absolute favorite apron, mainly because I don’t feel like it really is an apron It’s more of a cooking accessory, really. I think aprons get a bad rap — they are mostly known to be somewhat silly looking, protective devices that once on, force you to countdown until you can take it off. But not this one. This one is cool. It is made out of Duck Canvas and designed with the outdoors in mind. It has three pen pockets up top so you can look real professional, and two pockets near your pants which is a must for me: aprons without pockets are frustrating. But what’s so cool about it most of all, is that it doesn’t totally suck to wear it. Because it distributes weight down your shoulders and on your back instead of simply pulling at your neck, you can actually wear it for extended periods of time.Now, I look forward to putting on my apron before I cook. It’s actually become a nice ritual, especially now. It really helps me get into the chef mindset before I cook dinner or roll out pastry dough, and makes cooking that much more enjoyable and worry-free. Read more at The Daily Beast.

The Women DJs Exposing EDM’s Sexism Epidemic
TIFFWhen Jennifer Lee, better known as TOKiMONSTA, started DJing, there was one thing she heard whispered about her again and again: that she hadn’t created her own music. She remembers people attributing her work to the men in her life, guessing that her boyfriend must’ve made it for her. Since then, she has prioritized transparency in her process. “The more I share that with people,” she says, “the more they know that what I make is mine.”Seizing ownership over one’s work and artistry is a theme that comes up repeatedly in Underplayed, Stacey Lee’s thoughtful and thorough documentary probing gender inequality in the electronic music scene. Profiling a series of DJs and music producers, the film presents a broad and commanding look at the EDM landscape. It starts with a bleak statistic: On Billboard’s top 100 DJ list in 2019, only five women made the cut. The film then proceeds to interview each one of them—along with a host of other, more up-and-coming or underground female talents—about their experiences.The documentary opens on Suzanne Ciani, a pioneer in electronic music whose career began in the 1970s. For women in the industry at that time, she says, “There were lots of signals that you weren’t quite OK.” When Ciani went to work with Don Buchla, creator of the Buchla synthesizer, she remembers him disinviting her from a class he’d sponsored, saying that he’d decided not to include women. Men in the field found women to be “a social discomfort,” she explains. “They just were used to being among themselves. And they wanted it to stay that way.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
