Italian artist Maurizio Savini has spent the last ten years creating amazing sculptures out of thousands of pieces of bright pink chewing gum. Chewing gum may not be the most common media of the art world, but to 39-year-old Maurizio Savini it’s the most versatile material available. It’s easy to manipulate when warm, and can be cut with a knife, just like clay. Regardless of what many may think, chewing gum sculpting is an established art form, recognized all over the world, and Savini’s artworks are eagerly awaited by critics and connoisseurs, alike. Disgusting as it may seem to some people, Maurizio Savini uses thousands of chewed up pieces of bubble gum for each of his sculptures. He molds them into the desired shapes and when the whole thing is done, he fixes the sculpture with formaldehyde and antibiotics. The amazingly detailed chewing gum sculptures of Maurizio Savini have sold fro up to $60,000 each.

The sports world is rife with double entendre and pun opportunities, so it should come as no surprise that, intentionally or accidentally, print media can perhaps string some words together in a headline that might come across as a little…odd or unfortunate. Factor in headlines about a sex scandal and you’ve go the trappings of some damn funny headlines.
I vowed a while back that I would never call him by his real name and would only refer to him as Fat Pippen, because that’s what he is, a fat sidekick. For our new readers I am referring to LeBron James, and he is turning to Nike, like Tiger Woods did, to rebuild his image. We weighed in on his decision here, and why it was a terrible one, and he is still whining like a fat balding baby, seriously he is balding faster than a un-watered Chia Pet.
If you’re keeping count, there’s a Decision reference in that ad, a nod to the time he left his local high school for a stronger program in Akron as a teen, a Charles Barkley (“hi Chuck!”) reference, a Miami Vice redux with Don Johnson in tow (what, Nike could meet Philip Michael Thomas’ demands?), and James also gets to dress up like a cowboy, a beatnik, and a construction worker. And then he tries to get us to feel sorry for him because we judged him by our own set of values this summer.
LeBron? You still screwed up. You did the right thing going to the better team and taking less money to do it, but you completely and utterly blew the execution behind the whole move. You listened to your friends (because, as the ad states, “they’re [your] friends”), and your friends led you astray. This is pretty much how it’s always gone for every narcissist, in whatever forum, that surrounded themselves with yes-men.
Love him or hate him Kanye knows how to push the envelope. He decided not to make a generic 4 minute video for his new song Runaway, but instead jacked it up to a 34 plus minute mini movie featuring the gorgeous Selita Ebanks. If you have a half an hour to kill check it out below.
I’m pretty sure the lady in this video shares the same feelings I do when it comes to roller coasters. Sure, some consider them the epitome of excitement — flying through the air at top speed, whizzing and whirling in different directions, up and down, left and right, all under the control of some guy at a switch making minimum wage. But to me (and this lady), a roller coaster ride is the ultimate nightmare, and just writing about it has made me second-guess getting lunch today. Personally, I don’t want to defy gravity. I don’t want to feel my stomach where my heart should be, and my heart where my throat should be. And I certainly don’t want to pay for it. But this poor, poor woman was either pushed by friends and family into strapping in or she just made a terrible mistake the second she stepped afoot the roller coaster. Because, holy wow, the thing that happens to her in midair is something you never want to happen to you midair. (Not safe for the squeemish.)
I for one am a huge sucker for fast food, I eat it a lot, and I like it a lot. Since I hit up every fast food place known to man on a daily basis I am starting to run out of fresh and new exciting items to get on the menu, so I think it is about time we import some of the world’s finest fast food items to the states so I can clog my arteries a little bit more. While some of these I would truly like to have in America, some on the other hand can stay the F out of my country.

Incredible hand painting art created by talented Italian artist Guido Daniele. There really isn’t much to say about these things, all I got is my one friend makes a goose hand puppet all the time when he’s drunk and pokes girls in the face with it, it get’s really awkward actually. But anyway you can see more awesome hand paintings by Daniele here.
