The world of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is far more cloak and dagger than you’d ever guess. The issue is kept under wraps until the day before it’s released and even the models don’t know who’s going to be on the cover.
Apparently everyone just shows up at the beach, looks hot for some photos and they get surprised like the rest of us when the magazine hits the stands. In Brooklyn’s case, we’re particularly impressed by the accomplishment, since half of her swimsuit isn’t even on properly. Brooklyn is also going to be at Fashion Week 2010, hopefully modeling off some similar bikinis. You can get a run down of the events and schedule of the event found here.
With the recent announcement that we are about to be graced with a modern version of everyone’s all-time favorite hoops game, NBA JAM, its got everyone wondering what it may look like. There is no doubt that technological advances have made graphics seem life like on recent titles like NBA 2K10 and NBA Live 10. So much so, that it has some people looking back at how far basketball video games have come graphically. Check out this cool video showing the evolution of basketball video games. Disappointingly it doesn’t have Dr.J vs. Bird, but pretty much everything else is in there:
Some men like to carry a comb wherever they go. If you are one of them, you will love this cool comb that shaped like a gun, designed by a Taiwaneese designer Lee-weilang. This would be a great accessory, until a cop sees it on you walking through the airport and you get clubbed and handcuffed on site. Either way you can get yours at this website found here. The whole thing is in Chinese or Japanese and cost 350, which I don’t know if that transfers to $5,000 or 18 cents.
We have all heard the expression “Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer”. Well, apparently there is some truth to the expression. At this point everyone knows there are some real assholes on the internet, but sometimes those guys give us some comical material. Check out the questions and the answers in these photos, which are from Yahoo Answers.
When we think of ice cream trucks, we think of kids running down the street with some change they just swiped from their moms purse. What we don’t think of is a hip and cool rolling art project that makes us all want to be young again. That’s what a few of these self made ice cream vendors did and we love it!
Lo and Benjamin are obsessed with spreading the love they have for things flavor-some and fun. Their motto, “the greatest challenges are ones from the heart” will be ringing in your ears as the two bring impromptu dance parties to a street near you.
Packing a more philosophical punch for ice-cream lovers, The Tactical Ice Cream Unit (TICU) provides a bit more than just food for thought. With its primary aim to replace cold stares with frosty treats, the TICU is an oasis for community activists. Supplying water, first-aid, film, gas masks, water balloons in addition to ice-cream, who knew caring-for-the-community could be so much fun?
Well since yesterday was the last day of football until next year, I thought I would share the truth behind the great game of football. Studies show that there is actually only 11 minutes on average of actual gameplay in a NFL football game, and of course my girlfriend manages to be walking in front of the television 7 of those 11 minutes. To break it down, we got: 67 minutes of players just hanging out, 17 minutes of replays, 11 minutes of gameplay, and 3 seconds of girls with pom-poms shaking their big boobs.
Above is a sortable chart to see how every minute is accounted for in a sampling of four recent NFL games on different networks. Each frame represents 1% of the broadcast, excluding commercials. I know it is a little hard to see but pretty much that first green strip at the top is actual gameplay, the rest is everything else that makes up the 3 hours of an nfl game.
Grant Gunderson is a Mt. Baker Washington-based ski photographer. His work has appeared in magazines like Powder, Skiing, and Backcountry, and he is the photo editor of The Ski Journal. As an adrenaline junkie hooked on the great outdoors & anything with beauty & danger as bed fellows , I think this work is outrageously awesome! Love the way he has used daylight to balance flash , super strong work, and super strong photography. These photos are just the tip of the iceberg and I recommend you checking out Gunderson’s website found here for more gnarly photography.

Now I admit this house isn’t as classy or modern as the houses I usually pick for this feature, but Caveland gets this week’s nod on sheer creativity and originality. Honestly who wouldn’t want to live in a friggen’ cave. I can guarantee that every man in the United States would trade in his traditional square box house in for Caveland any day of the week. Curt Sleeper and his entire family have been living inside the cave they’ve appropriately named Caveland, for the last five years. Their unusual story begins back in December 2003, when Curt was searching for a commercial property on eBay and he stumbled across a cave, in the Fetus/Crystal City area, Missouri. I guess it’s true what they say, you can find anything on eBay.
