Boardwalk Empire will be running two promotions with the MTA. Starting on Saturday and running through weekends in September, the 2/3 lines will be using throwback trains from the 1920s, which is basically the same as the subway cars they currently have running.
The show’s second promotion takes place on September 24th and 25th and has the potential to cause a riot. They’ll be handing out free MetroCards to passengers at the 2/3 stations at Times Square and 72nd Street. Im lucky enough to walk to work, and thank god. Theres going to be some serious battles going on for those free metros. At $105 bucks for an unlimited, every little free hand out helps!
Why dont I paint or draw anymore? Inspiration like this makes me want to turn my entire apartment into a mural.
Amazing mountain bike video. I love when videos find a way to make something so rough and aggressive come off as beautiful and peaceful on film. The song is Radical Face- Welcome Home.
I read a pretty inspiring blog this morning so I decided to share it.
“Some people dream of success, others make it happen. Of course, you can dream as much as you like but waiting for things to happen gets you nowhere. Get active and start making things happen.
Whatever journey your path takes you on, the most important thing is to have passion in what you do.
How many of you went to college, got your degree, and ended up doing something totally unrelated to your major? Studying it did not make you passionate about it. It wasn’t your path.
Education or even talent aren’t worth much without passion. So do the stuff that you love and you’ve always wanted to do because without it, you’ll feel stuck and unfulfilled. If you work in a bank but your dream is to be a naturopath, then make those changes now. Make this year the turning point in your life. When you do what you love you will be rewarded — it will just flow naturally.
Look at those around you who just make things happen. They have a clear goal in mind and they know where they want to go. They don’t always have a plan but they have the passion and the tenacity to make it work, and they achieve their goals as the end result.
Trust us when we tell you this. If something important to you, you WILL find a way. If it isn’t, you’ll find an excuse. It’s that simple. Find your way. Make it work, whatever it takes. Are you 10 kilos heavier than you should be? It is simple: Commit, go to that gym every day, no excuses, and train until you lose those 10 kilos. When you accomplish this, you’ll have the confidence to do more. Set a goal and make it happen.
Want to stop smoking? Stop making excuses, take control of your circumstances before they take control of you.
Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life, it’s about what you inspire others to do and when you do accomplish something as simple as quitting smoking or losing weight, you’ll inspire others to do the same. Anyone can change the world, and everybody should try. And it all starts with your own life.
Stop waiting for the perfect time to do what you want to do. Do it now.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so get used to being uncomfortable. It won’t kill you. Do you need a sign? Here it is”: – Bill Tikos
The trailer for the long-awaited film adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy: Three Tales of a Chemical Romance is the long awaited follow up to Train Spotting, but lets be honest, there is only ONE Train Spotting.
Obviously, it’s different story and a different set of protagonists than Trainspotting, but this Rob Heydon-directed bit lacks all that hard grit of Danny Boyle’s film and only rubs that it in with a quick flash of a fish-eyed lens in a “high” shot. There could be a lot of things that make this film less compelling, but I think the 80s drug grit of Spotting is something that cant be matched. I do like the idea of hitting on some mid 90s hard rocking techno joints. Brings me back to high school and what the club scene once was and how you will only know if you experienced it that clubs and techno was once a world of its own, and not the Jersey Shore.
For V Spain’s Fall 2011 issue, the controversial Naomi Campbell and photographer Sebastian Faena come together for a very seductive spread done in dedication of Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, a classic film by Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar. Its nice to see Naoimi’s artistic side and not her taking a blow dryer to the side of her maids head for once.
This is a pretty cool video that explains how copyright laws have morphed from protecting writers into protecting corporations and hurting the public’s consumption of entertainment. Come on though. Star Wars go rereleased 17 times?! Thats just out of control. Darth was cool, but seriously, lets get a grip.
