Since we are going to have to watch douche bag Mark Sanchez play in New York for the next 15 years, I think we should get acquainted with his lady friend. Introducing Jennifer Mueller, the type of girl I would crawl through 5 miles of broken glass just to sniff the car seat she was sitting in last week. Jennifer isn’t just the typical free loading Hollywood arm candy either. Mueller ran the 200 and 400 in high school and earned all-state and all-league honors. Then she went on to run for athletics powerhouse USC, where she met Sanchez. With the amount of good looking people that attend USC I’m starting to think it doesn’t even exist as an actual university. It’s just one of those fake Hollywood colleges where everyone is 27, all drive 1960′s muscle cars, routinely break out in choreographed dances, and never actually go to class. Anyway here’s some more pictures of Jennifer being a normal college student, totally rad.
I don’t really think there is anything I can say about this photo that it doesn’t say for itself. Darth Vader, one of the all time bad ass movie villains, taunts poor Luck Skywalker in a way that would break any mans self dignity. Well done Darth, well done.
We have lasik surgery technology to help correct your vision, but what if you could get an entirely new set of eyeballs? Yea that’s definitely much too futuristic but not entirely out of grasp. Researchers at MIT have come up with a microchip for the eye that will help give the blind sight again. A specialized pair of video glasses send images to a microchip implanted in the eye which in turn relays that information to the brain. Not nearly perfected yet, this technology will be able to give a blind person minimal vision enough to allow them to navigate a room and recognize faces. Man I can’t wait for the day when plastic surgery is like the 8-track player and we replace body parts with robot pieces and be superhumans!
Anyone who knows me knows that when it comes to picking up women, I fall somewhere between Steve Urkel and Uncle Joey from Full House. I never take that random shot at a stranger at the bar and if on the off chance I start chatting it up with a girl, its probably because she approached me, or I am apologizing for drunkenly spilling my drink on her new dress. I always thought that guys who smoked had it so much easier, especially now that you cant smoke in NYC bars. You have to go out side like cattle in this little smokers section. Seeing these snazzy cuff links makes me almost want to take up smoking. Find other great Cufflinks at RedEnvelope.com. I mean lets be honest, a super hot girl is trying desperately to light her Capri Slim Light when she cant find her lighter. I move in like a stealth fighter jet and break out my cuff link lighter. I could get away with never saying a word to this girl, and still probably go home with her because she would think the James Bond movie series was based off of my life adventures. Cufflinks also make great Anniversary gifts so if your someone like me, pony up the $40 bucks for these and never worry about lacking pick up lines again.
A freebord is more or less a skateboard designed to act as a snowboard. They have 6 wheels, two spring locked castor wheels on the central axis, and four slightly raised conventional wheels. The central wheels are able to turn in any directions which enables the rider to make cuts and carve as if they were snowboarding. The central wheels thus mimic the deck of the snowboard, while the outer wheels mimic the two steel edges.
Since the start of the freebord they have become a lot more lighter and more maneuverable, to capture better and more realistic “snowboarding experience”. This gives the crazed snowboarder something to do during those summers when they are itching for snow fall again. Need to stop? Just edge in and slide to a stop, just like you do in snow. All you need is a hill and some pavement. You can purchase your own at Freebord Inc. for $210-$340 depending on the model.
I don’t know what goes through people’s minds when they are getting something drawn on their body that’s going to be there forever. You would think they would have a little bit more concern on how it’s going to look, but maybe these people wanted exactly what they got, in that case thanks for giving me a good laugh today. It’s hard to pick a favorite but the bald cat with sad eyes and open mouth, with a red pepper in his mouth, but obviously suppose to be a tongue, gets me every time. I also like the pre-schooler who drew the side profile of a T-Rex doing the mashed potato with a crown on. Then you have the biker crushing a thousand beers next to his motorcycle with a zombie hooker in the back yelling at him. Either way idiots around the world, keep getting these rad tattoos for the good of everyone’s humor.
Tanner Goldbeck was born on the 4th of July 1979 in Baltimore, Maryland. He started his art career shooting halftones on stat cameras, cutting layers of rubylith and changing chemicals for diffusion transfer machines. Spending entire days hand drawing type so that it would have the three dimensional layout that press type couldn’t provide was how Tanner spent his Saturdays.
In 1992, he graduated from The Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA. After spending several years working in different shirt shops and picking up small freelance jobs around the east coast he moved to New Jersey (HELL YEAH!) to attend The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Like many artists, that period of time allowed him to dig into New York City and open up to the idea of larger markets.
Shortly afterwards, in 1998 he relocated to the west coast and worked for Powell Skateboards in Santa Barbara, California. During this time of art and babe watching on the Venice pier, he began working freelance for Icon Motosports doing helmet and jacket work, which he is now widely known for. This lead to a gig at West Coast Choppers in Long Beach but after realizing that the morning rush was not for him, he went full time freelance. He currently works from his home office for Icon and is his own words, “does whatever it takes to make the landlord happy.” Check out his video as there is WAY more to Tanner Goldbeck than just some airbrushed helmets.
Damon Dash is officially back in the music business. The Roc-A-Fella co-founder has formed his own, new independent label to release a rap/rock album between The Black Keys and a slew of hip-hop artists, including Mos Def, Jim Jones, Q-Tip, Ludacris and more. Dash said that he never heard of the Black Keys until some of his staff invited him to a concert for one of their birthdays. The show was sold out, so before heading to the concert, Dash started to listen to the Keys, and they soon became his favorite new group.
The album, titled Blak Roc, also features appearances by Raekwon, RZA, Billy Danze of M.O.P., Pharoahe Monch and Ol Dirty Bastard, among others. Set for a release on the day after Thanksgiving, otherwise known as Black Friday in the world of retail, the disc will be on a new label started by Dash and the Keys.
When asked what made him return to the music business after all these years, Dash said it was all about the love.
The Black Keys are about real music and all these other people that came through are really good at what they do, and it was more for love really. We didnt know what it was gonna be, we just knew that we just liked making music. And thats really what its about at this point. At least after being in the game this long you dont wana just be doing it for money that becomes obvious. If I was to be a part of anything, it would have to be something like this
One of the cooler advertisements I’ve seen in a while, Lamborghini puts in perspective how crazy it is to actually own the new Lamborghini Reventon Roadster, as seen above. The Lamborghini Reventon Roadster, a convertible version of the famed Italian marque’s most coveted creation, has seen its price increase just a few weeks after it was unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Lamborghini announced that fewer than 20 and perhaps as little as 10 examples of the topless supercar would be built, priced at about $1.5 million. As with the original Reventon, however, it is thought that the limited edition Roadsters were quickly snapped up, and at least one early purchaser is already looking to turn a profit: a Reventon Roadster has now been listed for sale in Berlin via global online luxury marketplace JamesList for $2.1 million. The car’s 6.5 liter V12 engine pumps out 670 hp and can do 0 – 100 kph (62 mph) in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
Born in 1982, Sylvia Ji has a style all her own. Her art encapsulates a timeless feeling, but is also cutting edge in its subject matter. Ji’s interest in art was implanted at a very young age when she would look through her mother’s sketchbooks and watch her father paint. In her art, she explores themes of beauty, sexual provocation, and social notions of femininity juxtaposed against the dystopian reality of modern cities to create highly charged paintings of women. Some of her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting beauty. She graduated with distinction in 2005 from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco with a Bachelors in illustration and already had her first ambitious and successful solo show while still in her last year of school. Since then she has been in high demand, keeping continuously engaged in an onslought of numerous shows on the West Coast. Currently, she has works on display in both San Francisco and Los Angeles galleries. Seeing this art really inspires me, especially since Silvia and I are the same age. I think people have a tendency to only look up to or admire people who are older and more established, but there is a lot that you can learn from your peers. Big ups to my homegirl Lanie for turning me on to some of this awesome art!
