Almost all of us who drink will fight the beast that is the hangover at some point — some of us more often than not. A pounding headache, churning stomach, and extreme thirst are the last things we want to feel in the morning after a crazy night out, but many swear by their own cures as they stumble through life, weekend after weekend. From the basic (crackers and water) to the crazy (drinking even more), we’ve sifted through all kinds of “cures.” Most of what’s out there may be completely bogus, but these are the 15 greatest foods for when you’re hungover that will make a difference.
1. Breakfast Sandwich
The breakfast sandwich is a classic hangover food, whether your favorite is an egg McMuffin, a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit or even something homemade. There’s little to no work on your part — this grease bomb will ease your suffering. It covers the carbs and protein needed to clear your head and get back to work.
2. Mac and Cheese
There’s nothing like the warmth of good comfort food, and macaroni and cheese really hits the spot when you’re hungover. It doesn’t matter if it’s from Kraft in a box or if it’s that recipe your mom sent you, macaroni and cheese is a great option. The noodles allow easy digestion and provide plenty of carbs, while the cheese gives a decent amount of protein to help your body repair all the damage you caused.
I keep hearing things here and there about this movie “The Human Centipede”. It’s currently an IFC release in theaters. A few people I know watched the trailer and said it looked really disturbing, then I watched it and felt the same way. Unsure whether I could actually sit through the movie. Did a few searches and others are definitely feeling the same way. Veteran movie critic Roger Ebert said this about it, which pretty much sealed the deal for me that it has to be seen. “No horror film I’ve seen inflicts more terrible things on its victims than ‘The Human Centipede,’” Ebert wrote in his review. “The star rating system is unsuited to this film. Is the movie good? Is it bad? Does it matter? It is what it is and it occupies a world where the stars don’t shine.” Good luck with the uncomfortable feelings your about to get when you watch this.
Of all the iphone applications out there, this one seems to be one of the more important and complex I have seen. The point is to virtually care for your app. You can virtually feed him, virtually put him in a sleeping bag, or virtually ignore him. This homeless digital pet was created by Publicis London for Depaul UK, the largest charity for young homeless people in England. For some reason the app isn’t available in the US yet, but Im sure its only a matter of time. iHobo lives on your iPhone for three days. Look after him, and he might survive. Ignore him, and his life spirals out of control. “He might even OD.” I wonder what that looks like. Does he just start throwing up all over the inside of your iphone screen?
An explanation from the creative directors at the ad agency:
We wanted to reach that elusive generation of young, affluent donors, who tend to exist in a world defined by their mobiles. It’s been a complicated process getting live interactive footage onto an app, but doing something that’s never been done before was never going to be easy.
Are you having a shitty day? Well even if you’re not, but you probably are, here are a few dance videos to cheer you up and put a smile on your ugly mug. I’m not sure which one is my favorite, but when the collection ranges from a dog dancing to techno, to awesome Nigerian kids, a 150 year old grandpa getting down, and a group of kids owning a Beyonce song, it’s a tough decision.
1. Techno Dog
Yea dog bounce bounce, fist pump fist pump, now go fetch me some more glow sticks.
2. Nigerian Kids Let Me Clear My Throat
Nigerian kids dancing to “Let Me Clear My Throat” will brighten your day no matter how bad it might be. If it doesn’t work you’re clearly not watching the little chubber on the right breaking it DOWN. Theerre you go.
In April the “Mirror Man” was spotted at Griffith Observatory in LA. The “Mirror Man” is a LA street performer sure to turn heads because he is entirely covered in mirrors from head to toe. Definitely better than the naked cowboy here in NY, seems like this guy or girl who knows, is trying to send an existential message to those that see him. It’s more like you are viewing a piece of art instead of just your average street performer. If there was the constant sound of Michael Jackson’s “Man in The Mirror” playing when people saw him, he would really have people staring at him pondering their lives.

Rub your eyes again, what you read is true, this thing is really happening. Universal just promised $20 million to RZA to finance his next project ‘The Man With the Iron Fist.’ RZA will direct, score and star in the film as a blacksmith that supplies a village in feudal China with weapons. Whats a black man doing in China working with metal? Who cares. Eli Roth will produce the film as he also co-wrote the screenplay, describing it as “Kung Fu with a spaghetti Western mindset and a Hip Hop influence.” Those are 3 things that in my opinion have the potential to make this one hell of a movie. RZA is a kung fu genious, and Eli is the king of “torture porn” so we can at least expect a decent genre fetishism film.
Shooting starts in Hong Kong this September. YES!
Waking up at the wrong time because “PM” instead of “AM” was set up, the page’s left edge rips because the perforations don’t tear cleanly, the other sock in the pair goes missing, and so forth. These are all normal happenings that exist in our imperfect day-to-day lives and this series of simple illustrations points out what a perfect world would be like without such disruptions. It can also be seen as a means of discovering things that a lot of different people can relate to and think, “Yes! I hate it when that happens!”
Great 80′s movies were so simple to plot. A period of rough times followed by a period of rising up to the best motivational songs ever which manifested ultimate victory. Bottom line is these songs should be on your gym playlist and your sure to become a machine. If you need a little extra boost try the entire Rocky IV soundtrack played on repeat, it will give you those roided out results you are looking for.
Rocky IV – John Cafferty “Hearts on Fire”
BloodSport – Bush Stan “Fight to Survive”
Poster Boy is an anonymous New York City based street artist whose only utensil is a razor. We have all seen the mangled ad posters in the subway, and we have Poster Boy to thank for starting that movement. He is known for satiric collage-like works created by cutting out sections of the self-adhesive advertisement posters in the platforms of New York City subway stations, and pasting them back in different positions. He lives in Brooklyn, REPRESENT! and says that he wants to stay anonymous so that the movement behind his work is about the message in the art, and not about him as a person. Poster Boy also refers to a ‘Poster Boy movement’ where other people produce similar unsigned work in the New York City subways imitating this original artist. The only thing about him staying anonymous is that he didnt do such a good job. Poster Boy was sentenced to 11 months in jail on Monday for a felony charge of criminal mischief. In the mean time, Poster Boy will be appealing the case, but you can write him at this address. Send him some fan mail, the dudes doing 11 months!

The new Mike Nolan (The Dark Knight) movie, Inception is action packed and chock full of stars. Other than that I have no fucking clue what it is about besides that it looks like my mind is not ready for the raping its going to get while watching it.
