What you are watching is built entirely from the sounds of Craftsman tools mixed and edited by Kutiman. No musical instruments were used, which is really amazing for how awesome this little jam is. When the sprinkler came on I started laughing I don’t know why. Check it out.
When we saw this trailer we thought it had to be fake, but low and behold, this is a real movie. All amateur skateboarder Walter Rhum wants to do is turn pro and ride for the Machotaildrop Co. When he finally gets the invite to the companies island things get way surreal and a bit sinister. Part acid trip, part hilarious commentary, the film is screening this Friday, May 21st at Tribeca Cinemas. Buy your tickets NOW!

With graduation just around the corner, college seniors are thinking about the future. Sure, there are always the standard career choices—doctor, lawyer, teacher—but there are plenty of other options no one ever hears about. Some sound tempting, like a professional waterslide tester, while others will make you count your blessings (ahem, odor tester?). So whether you’re just starting out on your career path or daydreaming about greener pastures, check out the 15 jobs you never knew existed.
1. Odor Tester
Think your job stinks? Try being an odor tester. These employees test the efficacy of deodorants and antiperspirants by sniffing subjects’ armpits. Thanks to all of their nosing around, we’re spared the results of faulty products.
2. IMAX Screen Cleaner
The magnificent, larger-than-life images on IMAX screens wouldn’t be quite as powerful if they were cloaked in a layer of dirt and dust. Luckily, there are companies dedicated to keeping your viewing experience crystal clear. According to Michael Quaranto, cofounder of IMAX screen cleaning company 1570 Cinema Services, the biggest challenge to keeping the screens clean is making sure they’re dust-free (they are so dusty, cleaners usually have to empty their vacuum two or three times per screen).
Harvard and University of Tokyo students Hiroto Tanaka and Isao Shimoyama created an artificial butterfly to try and understand the bio-mechanics of butterfly flight. (wired.com). It’s said the chaotic unpredictable flight of a butterfly is to avoid predators. When I watch a butterfly it doesn’t seem chaotic to look at but more captivating than anything else. If you are super high watch this video on repeat.
If you have been keeping up with Banksy, you know his art has recently been spotted around the US, and it has finally shown up in NYC. To be honest, thats all we really care about. Detroit? Where? Since Banksy is one of our favorite artists, we tend to follow his moves pretty close, so when his art started getting bombed around NYC, we took instant notice. Earlier in the week, we let you know that Poster Boy had just been sent to the slammer for his subway art, but his street team of followers have taken to repping their leader and letting Banksy know that this is New York, and its their turf. Its going to be interesting to see how this all plays out, but my bet is that this is just the start of something great and something that used to be the stapple of artist competition.
I was watching “Reality Bites” the other day and I don’t know which I would rather be. The grunge, cut up jeans , long hair hipster of the 90′s or the skinny’s , salon hair cut hipster of present. Which would you be? Either way the tunes are good. Here are some must have 90′s alt jams to listen to in your old doc martins and jean jacket.
Porno For Pyros – Pets
An amazingly cool short movie by Patrick Jean involving lots and lots of pixels on a rampage through NYC. My favorite part is probably when Donkey Kong rolls in and just starts chucking barrels destroying everything in their path, pretty rad stuff.
Amazing to see how a lack of pigment can make an animal appear so very differently. Plus, you can print these pictures out and color them however you want. I wonder if the other animals tease them like albino humans get tortured by society.
The 80s were a glorious time. They featured some of the most marvelous hair ever, and the movies will forever go down as all time classics. The best part about most 80′s movies was that they had some kind of bully, and that same bully had some of the worst insult lines ever. Seriously, if some kid called me a turd burger or butt snot in high school, I would have yawned and slowly given the “okkkkkkkkkkkkk” look while turning away. This mash up features just about every 80s bully and their oh so silly disses that were considered edgy at the time. I love the way it starts with the first clip. Pure gold.
