Kevin Abstract - ARIZONA BABY Music Album Reviews

The BROCKHAMPTON star’s latest solo album is an often powerful document by a queer artist who has weathered life’s bruises.
In a move inspired by Shia LaBeouf’s bemusing catalog of durational work, Kevin Abstract recently endured 10 hours on a treadmill on a suburban street of his hometown, Corpus Christi, Tex. While running, the BROCKHAMPTON singer and rapper multi-tasked: He took selfies, signed sneakers, posed with a baby, and mumbled along to the chorus of his recent single, the yearning gay love song “Baby Boy.” Abstract vaguely told one fan that the performance was to teach empathy—indeed, you could interpret it as an allegory for the upstream battle to make it out of suburbia for so many kids—but that didn’t save it from feeling like a stunt.

2019 Audi Q3 Preview

The 2019 Audi Q3 stands out for its striking design outside and its big tech inside.
The trickle-down effect is in full force with the 2019 Audi Q3. Channeling big-brother Q8's styling with its octagonal grille, the 2019 Q3 marks as dramatic a departure from its predecessor in the looks department as we've seen from traditionally staid Audi in a while.

The biggest changes might not be obvious at first glance, however. With the 2019 Q3, Audi has transitioned its entry-level crossover SUV to the modern MQB modular architecture that now underpins the bulk of VW and Audi models. The new platform means that the Q3's wheelbase stretches by about 3 inches, while its overall length is up by about 4 inches to 176.6 inches. The redesigned Q3 is also about an inch wider than its predecessor.

That gives the Q3 a larger footprint than its direct rivals, which include subcompact crossover SUVs such as the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, and Volvo XC40.

The newfound girth reaps benefits inside, where the five-seat Q3's maximum cargo volume grows from just over 50 to nearly 54 cubic feet.

Up front, a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment dominates the Q3's dashboard, where it is wrapped in a thin silver hexagon that echoes the crossover's grille. The Q3 gets Audi's latest infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility plus Google Earth maps for the available navigation system via an LTE Advanced antenna. A 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system will be available.

In place of conventional analog gauges, the Q3 features a standard 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

On the safety front, the Q3 will offer automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, and active lane control. A surround-view camera system will also be on offer, as will a park assist system that can slot the Q3 into parking spaces at the press of a button.

Underhood, the Q3 will offer four turbocharged engines globally that culminates with a 230-horsepower turbo-4 paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. For now, Audi has only said that the Q3 will come with all-wheel drive, but a front-wheel-drive version may follow. A choice of 17-, 18-, and 20-inch wheels will be on offer.

For off-road use, the Q3 will be available with hill-descent control, but the sport suspension included with the available S Line appearance package may match the Q3 best.

Audi has not yet detailed standard and optional equipment for the U.S.-market Q3 when it goes on sale sometime in 2019. Later, a hybrid version of the Q3 and a high-performance SQ3 are likely to follow.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?
The Nokia 7.1 is a familiar mid-range phone for the end of 2018: a notch, big bottom chin and dual cameras. But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.
