I consider myself fairly normal. If you are sitting at an office job trying to kill time, then chances are, your probably fairly normal too. I have a hard time understanding some of these people running around just getting into trouble for random nonsense at the age of 40. Your 40, calm down. Your ‘bros’ back home arent running around high fiving eachother saying ” dude, did you hear? Ricky got caught by the cops for huffing gold spray paint and trying to steal ferrets from that pet store on 1st street. Totally rad right?” Pull yourself together and cut the shit. Actually, dont do that, if all of these guys got their act together, we wouldnt be blessed with these money mug shots.
Karma? Is that you?
Besides “Big Love”, his show on HBO, Bill Paxton has been out of the major movie scene for a few years. There have been rumors of a Twister remake but who know’s if Paxton will have any part in that. His most memorable characters have been the sneering, sleazy and loud-mouthed kind like “Chet” from Weird Science and the car salesman “Simon” from True Lies. Since those early career roles Paxton has moved to more serious stuff like Apollo 13 (1995) and now Big Love. Long story short I think the world is waiting for the next good Paxton movie, he’s an actor everyone seems to love. In doing some re-search on Paxton, I discovered there is actually a pretty large underground following for his character “Hudson” from Aliens, in which Paxton won The Saturn Award for best supporting actor. No idea what the Saturn Award is though. Here’s to Paxton, the greatest B actor, who gets all the recognition from his fans, but never anything formal. The Aliens montage below is long but watching the progression of his character from a smart ass funny man to a freaked out nervous break down is pretty hilarious and showcases how good of an actor Paxton is. The True Lies clip is just classic comedic Paxton.
Everyone I know complains. They complain about money, work, relationships, their commute, and anything else under the sun that rubs them the wrong way. I also find myself getting aggrivated at the littlest things sometimes. When I saw this painting, I was pretty blown away by the percentages, and really kind of ashamed by some of the things I have recently let get under my skin. Im lucky, and if you are reading this, then you are probably pretty luck too.
By now I think we can all agree that drinking beer changes things for better or for worse. Here is a collection of photos of classic moments with beer, from epic fails to down right debauchery to start off your day with a smile. So raise up your beer and do something stupid, make sure you get a picture of it though.
Hopefully the beer doesn’t taste like piss too or that would just be awkward.
Some of this kids lines were just too funny not to share this video. He’s fighting stereotypes one lyrical masterpiece at a time, and he wants everyone to know exactly how much he really likes chicken. Im not exactly sure that naming the song “Ill Bust The Windows Out Your Car” was the best name he could come up with, but at least its catchy. Some people might think its pretty ridiculous to pen an entire song about chicken, but I am actually envious of it. I took a step back, and realized I dont think I love any food enough to make a song about it, come to think of it, I dont think I love ANYTHING enough to make a song about it. Im not sure what my favorite part of this video is, but the kids dad doing the slow Cleveland shuffle in the background is ranking pretty high right now.
Born Ruffians new video off his album “Say It”, it pretty unique and awesome to say the least. The video was recorded entirely off of a vintage oscilloscope. Oscilloscopes are used for viewing voltages, primarily in the sciences, medicine, engineering, telecommunications and industry. Though other people have reprogrammed oscilloscopes to display images in the past, the “video to scope” process used in this video is the first of its kind. The images you see are made up of a single point of light, moving quickly across a screen in order to draw shapes – that means the entire Born Ruffians video for “What to Say” displays vector images made from only one continuous line. The footage was shot once on video, edited, converted for use on the oscilloscope (using a live visuals program called TouchDesigner) and then shot again directly off the vintage machine. In other words, just watch the fucking video, it’s cool.
La Machine is a French based art-tech company which creates living machines that bring large scale robotics and scifi fantasy a little closer to reality. Their latest project descended upon western France this spring. A war of the worlds looking tripod with classical touch of an air balloon look from “Around the World in 80 Days”. Some of their other projects include a 50 ft tall spider named la princess that took over Liverpool, UK in 2008 and 50 ton wooden elephant that walked the streets of Nantes, France in 2005. Wish I could ride of these bad boys to work.
Love Letter is a project by Stephen Powers with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and is sponsored by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative. It is a installation scattered throughout West Philly which really emphasizes the true meaning of love. People get so caught up in the story book meaning of romance that they forget it is the simplest things in life that make relationships work. I’m not sure if this is dedicated to one person, but if it is it might be the best expression of love I have ever seen. The series consists of 50 or so murals, which took god knows how long to complete. I think my favorite one has to be the letter magnets. I have those on my refrigerator so I can relate. Yes. Im 27 with letter magnets. This is a post about love, not judging, lay off. Heres a ton of pics. Enjoy!
By now we have come to the conclusion that Maury Povich greatly enjoys fucking with people’s lives and putting it on national T.V. He comes off as trying to be a helping facilitator, but in actuality you know he is dying laughing inside from the the clowns he gets on his show. Some people might say it’s all fake, but I’m still going to believe it’s all true, I mean come on you can’t fake a 500 pound 6 year old, that’s real life people. Here are ten ridiculous themes from his past shows on why people should break up with their significant other, he has a point. If my girlfriend gave away my bologna sandwich I would be throwing hammer fists all around town.
