PopChartLab has managed to capture the entire history of sneaker design, in one cool infographic.

It’s interesting to see what has and has not changed over time, or as Mark Wilson put it, “sneakers have run on a sort of quarantined evolutionary track seemingly independent of the whims of popular fashion.” 

Here’s the full infographic. Got a favorite shoe brand?

"A man does not exist until he is drunk." -Ernest Hemingway
Don Draper drinks an Old Fashioned because he’s a man. Rocky Balboa drank his protein shakes—five raw eggs—for strength. Phil drank sweet vermouth because it was Rita’s favorite libation in Groundhog’s Day (he was trying to get her into bed)…
The Cocktail Chart of Film & Literature, a new print from Pop Chart Labs, features the signature cocktails of your favorite fictional boozehounds.

Infographic of the Day: 108 of the Best Haircuts in Music History


What’s pop music without crazy haircuts? Nothing, that’s what — and as iconic as the great pop stars are, you might be surprised at how iconic their hair is, all by itself.
Just check this new poster from Pop Chart Lab, which reproduces the haircuts of 108 inimitable pop stars. The truly uncanny thing is how many you can probably recognize without even looking at the name:
Weird, right? Of course, the poster has many, many omissions — I mean seriously, no Bieber? C’MON. But if you tweet new suggestions to @popchartlab and they use it in the next version of the poster, they’ll give you a $10 giftcard.
