Ten Things You Shouldn’t be for Halloween

-Tamara Feingold

You only have a couple of weeks before October 31st is here, but that doesn’t mean you should be lazy with your Halloween costume. Here’s a list of ten people you shouldn’t try to dress up as because everyone else has already tried it.

1. Snooki

Although the Jersey Shore star can be pretty loveable, all of the fake tans/teased hair/huge pink slippers have been a little too much the past few years.

2. Famous Athletes

I know it’s easy because all you have to buy is a jersey, but most of us still won’t know who you are and will probably think you didn’t even dress up. Try being a celebrity that’s easily recognizable for those who don’t watch sports all day.

3. Black Swan

Although this may seem like a good idea at first, let’s think about the mess. No one wants to have to pick up your failed attempt at stick-on feathers, even though some fierce eye makeup and red eye contacts would look pretty convincing.

4. Lady Gaga

I know all of her little monsters want to pay some respect with a hair-in-a-bow headband and some fake bangs, but Lady Gaga herself is the only one who wears meat dresses and outfits made out of bubbles. Let’s keep it that way.

5. Anything Prepackaged

This year, instead of going to Spencer’s and buying a sexy police officer outfit, you should try to think of something clever. You can still look cute, but without spending $50 on something five other people at the party also bought.

6. The Cast of Twilight

Being pale and glittery is okay if you’re Edward, but if you try this at a party everyone will make fun of you so they can pretend like they didn’t see New Moon three times in theaters.

7. Spice Girls

A tempting costume choice for any group of five girls, the classic Baby Spice & Co. entourage should be avoided. It’s been done too many times and you never really turn out looking like Victoria Beckham.

8. Nicki Minaj

Don’t get me wrong I love a little Super Bass. But it’s just too easy to pick up a plastic Barbie necklace and a pink wig and call it good.

9. The Cast of The Office

Unless you wear a nametag (also forbidden) no one will know who you are and you’ll probably just look like a nerd who shouldn’t have been invited to the party.

10. Steve Jobs

It’s just too soon.

The End of an Era

In the world of technology, Steve Jobs wasn’t just the face of Apple In., but he was also one of the most innovative thinkers in the industry. For the past few years, Jobs had struggled with his health and was forced to step down from his title as CEO of Apple. Earlier today, Jobs passed away and the technological word lost one if its leading visionaries.

During his time at the helm of Apple, Jobs made sure that his products were the standard of all technology. Over the last several years, iPods have practically held a monopoly over the mp3 player market and Mac Books have become one of the most popular laptops for students and businessmen alike. Jobs was also one of the main reasons the iPad has been able to stay ahead of the game and continue to be the leading tablet available.

Aside from the impact he had on the technological world as the Co-founder of Apple, Jobs also had a significant impact on the entertainment industry. In 1986, Jobs purchased Pixar Animation Studios, which was then known as The Graphics Group. The first film released by Pixar was “Toy Story,” for which Jobs was named an executive producer. “Toy Story” went on to be a major success and Pixar is now one of the most respected animation studios in the business.

Apple has responded to Jobs’ unfortunate death by adding a tribute to the homepage of their website of apple.com. Current Apple CEO, Tim Cook release a statement saying, “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor.” Disney CEO, Bob Iger, also released a statement saying, “Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era.”

Whether you’re a Mac or a PC, there’s no doubt that the technological world lost an icon on Wednesday. Steve Jobs worked tirelessly to ensure that Apple’s products became the standard of computers and mobile devices, and kept them at the top for many years. There no way to measure the impact that Jobs has had on the technology we use today, and his innovative ways of thinking will truly be missed.
