There are very few super hero/comic book movies that I get excited about. G I Joe sucked, Dare Devil was a joke, Ghost Rider made me want to ghost ride my jeep off a cliff, and the first Hulk made me wish I didnt know what TV was. But this movie is different. Kick-Ass is an upcoming 2010 superhero film based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn.
The plot of Kick-Ass concerns a lonely teenage boy, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), who decides to become a real-life superhero after being inspired by the heroes of comic-books. He soon encounters a mysterious vigilante called Big-Daddy (Nicolas Cage), and his daughter Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz), who are working to bring down the drug baron, Frank D’Amico. The cast is jacked with up and coming comedy stars and I cant wait until 2010 for this to drop. Check out the trailer, it is gold from the very start.
Infinity pools have been around for a while, so it only makes sense someone would apply the same idea to another home-sized water feature: the aquarium. ZeroEdge Aquariums ($600 and up) do exactly that, providing overflowing aquatic environments for all types of fish and sea creatures in a variety of styles and shapes, ensuring you can find one that’s right for your home or office.
Charlotte, NC-based artist Karen O’Leary re-imagines the map as an exchange of negative and positive space. Using cities such as London, New York City, and Paris She uses a razor to cut out all the land and building areas, to leave only the streets as the positive area. In a recent interview with The Jailbreak, O’Leary said of her work, “I love the idea of a completely familiar object made new and even more beautiful.”
The maps, haunting in their simplicity and startling visual potency, highlight the transient beauty of each city’s skylines through their delicate construction. Says O’Leary, “Imagine all the sounds and smells and feelings of being in a large city…then try to transfer that to paper without using words, only by using a knife or a pen.”
If you score a touchdown in any type of football game have it be the NFL or your back yard you have to put on a show to rub it in the opponents face. I don’t even really play football that much anymore, but when I get on the field for a pick up game trust me, I have dances that would make Michael Jackson look like an infant. Here are the top 5 celebrations we have gathered for you. Please take note that we could have easily dedicated this whole post to Chad Johnson but we wanted to shake it up a bit.
5. Rocket The Ball Into A Ref’s Balls Celebration
4. Ocho Cinco River Dance Celebration
Perky Jerky is caffeinated beef jerky, made from 100% all natural beef, with an invigorating additive derived from Guarana, a natural energy booster with approximately twice the caffeine content of a coffee bean. The result? A beef jerky with outstanding flavor and a powerful jolt. This might be the greatest invention since the microwave. I can’t wait to be at a bar gnawing on my 28th piece of beef jerky and slamming beers down smelling like a lumberjack wearing roadkill cologne. Ordering 500 bags right now, you can do the same by buying it here. Twelve 2 oz bags cost $59.00, with a two oz bag going for $4.99. Why did I never think of this?
That was f%#king awesome. Thank you to all who could make it.
When I see stuff like this, I get stoked. Not only because it might be the best wedding invitation of all time, but it makes me think that no matter what obstacles might be in your way, if you really want something, you can find a way to make it work. (Find a variety of save the date and thank you cards from Vistaprint.com). Maybe it is because Ive never felt something like this before and it lets me think that it is real, and not just some myth people make up to sound like their life is a fairy tail. Whatever the reason I like this, I figured I should share it with everyone. If I ever convince a girl to spend the rest of her life with me, you can bet I will be contacting Kayrock in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to do the invites.
Who said smoking butts wasn’t good for anything? If you take a look at smoke in the air, whether it be from a cigarette or a fire, it is really amazing. The way it moves in the the air so freely, and the forms it creates, it is truly memorizing. Now of course you aren’t going to achieve anything that looks anything remotely as cool as these smoke art photos. But while your sitting on your couch in your underwear with a bag of Doritos on your chest smoking a Marlboro Red, try to recreate these images, I’m sure you will really nail the Mona Lisa.
I know Halloween is over, but we are not going to wait a whole year to show you how ridiculously creepy Halloween used to be back in the day. I have no idea what year these photos are from, but I do know they are old enough. Black and white pictures make anything look scary, but add these hand made costumes and you got “Texas Chain-Saw/ The Hills Have Eyes” type shit. Call me a hard ass, but a kid in a Ninja Turtles costume just doesn’t scare me much. If I saw a pack of these things waiting at my door I would instantly call the cops, throw tear gas onto the porch, and hide in my basement with a shotgun until help arrived.
For those of us who have never been to war, it is hard to understand exactly what a soldier goes through from the recruitment to deployment, and then to returning home again. This is how an American Soldier is made.
For 27 months, Ian Fisher, his parents and friends, and the U.S. Army allowed Denver Post reporters and a photographer to watch and chronicle his recruitment, induction, training, deployment, and, finally, his return from combat.
I think that this is a great project, and an awesome way for the public to see exactly how the young men and women of this country handle such a mind blowing responsibility. Most of the enlisted men and women in the armed forces are fresh out of high school and it is suprising to me that they are able to handle the pressure so well. My good friend Zach has completed a tour in Iraq, and for that I thank him. It might have always been hard for people to understand exactly what he went though, and maybe this photo essay can help with that. He is a patriot and a soldier through and though. He also looks like Teddy Ruxpin, just sayin, Zach.
When you see a bear no matter what kind, all you see is power and an animal that would rip you to shreds. That mind set kind of changes though when that bear has no hair and is a bald wrinkly sac of meat.
An unfortunate bear by the name of Dolores has lost all her body hair and has just been left with a few tufts around her head. Vets have been left baffled by the condition of the bespectacled bear, who lives at a zoo in Leipzig.And Dolores isn’t the only one. The sudden hair loss has affected all female bears at the zoo. Some experts believe it could be due to a genetic defect though the animals do not seem to be suffering from any other affliction. The bears, which originate from South America, normally have fluffy dark brown fur and would now be growing a thicker fur coat to keep warm during the winter
This is what the bear should look like with hair, a lot tougher looking if you ask me.
