Yippee Ki-yay Celebrate 30 Years Of Die-Hard

One of the most thrilling films of all time has to be Die-Hard. From memorable lines to iconic moments you will always sit down to watch John McClane save his wife and others at Nakatomi Corporation building. Now you can watch it with the 30th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray!

It’s Christmas time in L.A., and there’s an employee party in progress on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Corporation building. The revelry comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), who plan to steal the 600 million dollars locked in Nakatomi’s high-tech safe. In truth, Gruber and his henchmen are only pretending to be politically motivated to throw the authorities off track; also in truth, Gruber has no intention of allowing anyone to get out of the building alive. Meanwhile, New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) has come to L.A. to visit his estranged wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia), who happens to be one of the hostages. Disregarding the orders of the authorities surrounding the building, McClane, who fears nothing (except heights), takes on the villains, armed with one handgun and plenty of chutzpah. Until Die Hard came along, Bruce Willis was merely that wisecracking guy on Moonlighting. After the film’s profits started rolling in, Willis found himself one of the highest-paid and most sought-after leading men in Hollywood.

Bulleit Puts The Spotlight On Upcoming Artists

From newly discovered talents to the most influential figures of the 20th century, Frieze New York 2018 showcases the best of what’s happening in the international art world. It also sets the stage for the latest collaborative project from Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, where artist and actor Aldis Hodge, New York artists Taylor McKimens and Tara McPherson and thousands of fair goers will celebrate their frontier spirit by creating Impressions artwork inspired by the iconic Bulleit bottle.

For its latest Frontier Works collaboration, Bulleit has partnered with local artists in communities around the country to create Bulleit Bottle Impressions. Whether charcoal, paint or chocolate, artists create their pieces by laying paper on top of the Bulleit bottle and using their medium of choice to create an impression by pressing down on the bottle’s raised lettering.

As part of its partnership with Frieze Art Fair, Bulleit is now inviting adult visitors at Frieze New York to join in the project by tagging photos of their own Impressions artwork on Instagram using #FrontierWorks. Festival attendees will also have the opportunity to create their own Impression in the Bulleit Whiskey Lounge at Randall’s Island Park May 3-6.  Select consumer-submitted Impressions using #FrontierWorks will be featured as part of the Bulleit Frontier Works: Bottle Impression project later this summer.

“Bulleit is a whiskey living on the edge of culture, making an impact by uniting the imaginations of frontiersmen and women who challenge the status quo every day,” said Ed Bello, US & Global Brand Director for Bulleit Frontier Whiskey. “Bulleit Frontier Works: Bottle Impressions celebrates and brings to life the frontier spirit of artistic expression in all of us.”

To further celebrate these collaborations, Bulleit worked with local artists across the country to transform their Impressions into unique works of art. Contributors to-date include: Christina Mrozik and Zach Johnsen whose artwork debuted at Soul’d Out in Portland and Ryan Duggan and CHema Skandal! whose artwork was launched at One of Kind Festival in Chicago. Taylor McKimens and Tara McPherson’s artwork is currently displayed throughout New York and will be showcased at Frieze New York.

I really loved the X-Men baseball tee. It is great to wear out during the spring and summer months. The yellow and blue color theme for the baseball jersey takes me back to the 1990’s X-Men animated series where the team’s colors were yellow and blue.

The Magneto hat is a snapback. While I prefer the FlexFit style of hat this particular snapback hat feels comfortable. It has a great drawing of Magento underneath the brim of the hat.
