Skater, artist Haroshi had collected a number of old decks in his room from years of riding. The boards had sentimental meaning to him, so he wasn’t going to throw them out. Instead, he thought of ways to reusing these decks for artwork. The end result is an exhibition entitled “Skate & Destroy,” recently held at PLSMIS gallery in Tokyo. You can check out Haroshi’s website found here for more of his stuff.

Insiders at the Marvel compound say that John Krasinski is close to landing the superhero gig of his life. John, who plays Jim on “The Office,” has appeared in front of producers repeatedly since the start of the new year and since rumors began in February. He has read 4 times and is doing screen tests. It’s very likely that he will be the new Captain America. He is a favorite among the key decision makers and has been asked to come back for more this week. Humm. Whos making the decisons over at Marvel, because I just dont see this one happening. Dont get me wrong. This dude is awesome on The Office, but Captain America? All Im saying is you better get your weight up Johnny.
For a lot of people, vacations are a time to rest and relax while for others they’re a chance to see some sights and experience interesting cultures around the world. But some people couldn’t imagine wasting a second of their vacation sitting on a beach or dining at a restaurant when they could be setting off on their next adventure. If that sounds like you and you’ve had your fill of average ski trips and snorkeling then check out these extremely dangerous travel activities from around the world.
1. Swimming with the Whale Shark in Donsol, Sorsogon Philippines
If you’re on the hunt for big adventure with an emphasis on the big, head over to the shores of Donsol in the Philippines for an incredible undersea adventure and swim with a whale shark. You’re not allowed to use scuba gear or under water scooters—it’s just you, the massive fish and the deep blue ocean. Just be sure you stay at least about 10 feet away from its head and don’t get in its way!
2. Racing the Nuerburgring in Nürburg, Germany
If “become a racecar driver” is on your list of things to do before you die, we hope for your sake that it’s last on your list. The Nurburgring racetrack in Germany is the most dangerous circuit in the world and for €22 a lap anyone can drive it. The part you can drive isn’t the F1 circuit, but the Nordschleife or “Nothern Loop” which is a famous testing ground that’s sometimes closed off for racing events. During “Touristenfahrten” the road is open to the public and (for the most part) doesn’t have a speed limit.
This is the portable chair that elevates your prominence–as well as your physical stature–at any outdoor event. Measuring 5 1/2′ tall, the chair is certain to provide stadium seating at any venue, and its 9′ sq. seat affords ample room for full-body gesticulations or sharing your prodigious chair with a friend. The lofty seat elevates feet well above the ground, where they’re free to dangle and sway instead of merely floundering in dirt or sand. The reinforced powder-coated steel frame and 400-denier rip-stop canvas support up to 400 lbs. The chair has six cup holders and folds to just 8 1/2″ wide to allow transport in the included duffel bag. Step stool not included. Open: 5 1/2′ H x 5′ W x 3′ D. (35 lbs.) You can buy yours here, but it will run you $150.
What do you get when you mash together high definition video, Steven Hawking knowledge, a dope beat, fire, firecrackers, things exploding, and all in slow motion? The answer is this awesome video sure to entertain your bored self. I just wish Hawking broke into a gangster rap or started cussing profusely, that would be rad, but I guess that’s the only thing really missing from this video. The video was made by Mike Barzman, a Vimeo user from Los Angeles, California. The audio track is called Pink Terror which you can download on Barzman’s site.
With the success of Avatar 3D and it’s ability not only to create an extraordinary visual experience but also pull the viewer deeper into the plot you better get ready for the 3D barrage. Formatting a film to 3D only takes about 16 weeks and is relatively inexpensive for a studio to do, in the months to come don’t be surprised to see re-released 3D versions of your favorite visually stunning flicks such as Lord of Rings and The Matrix. Wired.com reports that a source close George Lucas has confirmed he is spending the 10 million it will take to update his 1976 classic Star Wars.
On top of that we have had heard rumors of 3D HDTVs coming out but nothing concrete. Well Sony announced yesterday their pricing and release dates of the LX900 series which they unveiled in Las Vegas in Jan. Panasonic and Samsung have similar announcements scheduled over the coming weeks. The Sony line is made up of 38 models ranging in screen sizes from 60 to 22-inches. The LX900 series offers integrated 3D functionality with Sony’s 3D active shutter glasses and built-in 3D transmitter, while the HX900 and HX800-series are 3D capable using Sony 3D active shutter glasses and 3D transmitter (each sold separately). They are dropping in Japan this summer and expect the U.S.A release soon after. Price range should be in the $6,000 to $3,000 depending on size with 60 inch being the largest. In 3 years I would expect 3D HDTV to be the new standard.
This brand-new, completely unreleased studio album features 12 previously unreleased studio recordings totaling over 60 minutes of unheard Jimi Hendrix. Ten of these recordings were made between February and May, 1969, as the Jimi Hendrix Experience set out to create the sequel to their groundbreaking 1968 double-album Electric Ladyland. The album features “Valleys Of Neptune,” one of the most sought after of all of Hendrix’s commercially unavailable recordings, and includes exciting 1969 arrangements of the classic signature songs “Red House,” “Fire,” and “Stone Free.” Also includes unheard studio versions of Hendrix’s inspired interpretations of “Bleeding Heart” (Elmore James) and Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love.” Mixed by Eddie Kramer, the engineer for all of Hendrix’s albums throughout the guitarist’s lifetime. Produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer, and John McDermott, the team behind all of the acclaimed Jimi Hendrix CD and DVD releases since 1996.
Ever wonder what happens to dead elephants, yea didn’t think so but it is pretty interesting. This photo set was taken within 24 hours from start to finish. It was taken in the land of Zimbabwe where an adult elephant was found dead in the middle of nowhere. When the locals found notice they pounced on this thing, and pounced fast. It makes sense, one of those ivory tusks probably gets you a Bart Simpson t-shirt and a Colt-45 handgun, not to mention a elephant leg can feed your family for months. Warning not for the faint of heart. I like the guy in picture 3 going straight for the butt hole, what is he getting out of the anyway geez.
Ut oooooo here they comeeeeeee.
RiP!: A Remix Manifesto is a 2008 open source documentary film about the “the changing concept of copyright” directed by Brett Gaylor. I know this is now 2 years old, but somehow I never heard of it, and I love the entire concept.
Created over a period of six years, the documentary film features the collaborative remix work of hundreds of people who have contributed to the Open Source Cinema website, helping to create the “world’s first open source documentary” as Gaylor put it. Gaylor encourages more people to create their own remixes from this movie, using media available from the Open Source Cinema website, or other websites like YouTube, Flickr, Hulu or MySpace. I was doing some youtube viewing of old Girl Talk shows that I had been too, and this popped up. If you have never seen GT, please go check out a show. The energy is great and you will never have more fun at a show.
