“Compliments of Chicago”: Gang Business Cards from the 1970s and 1980s

In the 1970s and 1980s, gangs in Chicago advertised their presence and membership on business cards. This was criminality with a dash of style and wit. Meet the Almighty Playboys, the Royal Capris, The Almighty Hells Devils and the Almighty Playboys. Or rather, you’ve been met by them, their signature calling card tucked into their victim’s pocket.

Brandon Johnson has compiled gang cards many from his collection into a book Thee Almighty & Insane: Chicago Gang Business Cards From the 1960s & 1970s.

“Back due to popular demand, another volume — Thee Almighty & Insane: Chicago Gang Business Cards from the 1960s & 1970s. Same format, but with all new content including a selection of older and rarer Chicago gang compliment cards from the North and West Sides made during the 1960s & (mostly) 1970s. This book documents a collection of historical ephemera from a period of time in which city-orchestrated displacement, the loss of industry, and racial antagonism created socioeconomic conditions that led to the formation and expansion of gangs in the streets, parks, and schools of Chicago. Once again, 70+ enlarged reproductions of original compliment cards listing members, territories, slogans, and declarations of loyalty/animosity, are brought to the forefront for examination and interpretation.”

Akso, check previous post illustrated business cards of the real street gangs from all around the world.

 「衆生」とは、”命ある者”、”心をもつ者” を意味するサンスクリット語の訳語であり、生きとし生けるもの(生類)のことだ。

 これまで、動物は法律上「器物」として扱われていたが、このほどイギリスで、動物を正式に衆生として認める条項が、動物福祉法にくわえられることになった。『iflscience』や『Lad Bible』などが伝えている。

“Retric Dreams”: The Superb Synthwave Inspired Artworks in Dark Neon by Maximilian Auer

According to Maximilian: “This is my personal exploration in digital art. Heavily inspired by synthwwave & music in general, I aim to capture fleeting, somewhat dreamlike, nighttime moments, which could be just around the corner but still feel miles away.

Transporting emotions of nostalgia and longing for something distant and yet close, like a memory that comes back up to your mind, is at the core of what I try to achieve with every new artwork I create.

I am excited to take on new challenges and create unique, meaningful worlds & visuals. Let it be graphics, animations, shortfilms or music videos.”

Photos Show What Life of American Teenagers Looked Like in the 1980s

The 1980s may feel like yesterday, but the teenagers of the 1980s are now unfortunately distinctly middle-aged. If you’ve tried to explain to a modern child the significance of a pencil to a cassette tape, and they don’t even have a clue what a cassette is, then welcome home.
