This new piece by Alabama street artist Priest appeared on a side of an insurance building in downtown Mobile, attracting a crowd and the local media. We covered Priest once before and all of his art really carries a political/Banksy feel. Keep up the good work!
Here’s a peak at what the new 30 minute Adam Yauch-directed, new Beastie Boys album-promoting short film will look like. This thing features Seth Rogen, Will Ferrel, Jack Black, Elijah Woods, Susan Sarandon, and seriously everyone else funny that you can think of. Check it out, because honestly, who doesnt like celebrity cameos and new fresh Beastie Boys songs!
I think the drunk dial was invented at the same time the telephone was invented, they go hand and hand. We have all done one and they are brutally embarrassing when you wake up the next morning, especially if there is answering machine evidence of your suave talk. Here is one of the funniest messgae I have ever heard from a chick who is completely bombed and in love with a guy named Ryan after meeting him for thirty seconds at at bar the same night, enjoy.
A lot of people complain about the prices of gas and that we are only in Iraq to get oil so the rich can get richer, well I hate to break it to you politician majors but gas is not really that expensive when comparing it to the rest of the dumb shit you have no problem buying every single day without hesitation. Although it was sweet when gas was a dollar a gallon and I was able to fill up my dope 1992 4 door chevy cavalier for ten bucks, at car got me more butt then ashtrays…… Not.
I don’t know much about Phuket Thailand nor do I really care to, but after seeing this video I definitely would want to visit for vacation. Before all I though Thailand had to offer was tranny hookers and shitty beer, but from the looks of it Thailand has a little bit more to offer.
Here is a pretty cool little representation of Superheros in alphabet form. Cheat sheet can be found below if your too lazy to guess.
I need to shamelessly plug this video for a few reasons. 1) It came out great, and 2) I need to represent PATCH.COM! This is a wonderful place to work and the movement in hyper local media is a really exciting place to be right now. This video gives you a great idea of some of the cool things Patch is doing, and how they are moving forward to be a industry leader.
Making the trek to catch a major music festival can be the highlight of any long summer. Millions of music fans across a variety of genres make their yearly pilgrimages in order to catch some great live tunes, use some seriously overworked porta-potties, and, if they’re lucky, have a topless girl sit on their shoulders.
Sound like fun? Well then here are some of the largest, most riotous music festivals of the smoldering 2011 summer season. (If you can think of other worthwhile shows that I’ve omitted, please share them in the comments section.)
In the middle of the brutal California dessert, there is a rock oasis that goes by the name Coachella. Celebrating 12 years of showcasing the biggest acts in music, Coachella has become one of the biggest festivals in the U.S. with over 220,000 attendees at last year’s show.
Not just aurally pleasing, the concert site also features interactive art works and captivating displays. The festival promoters are also making attempts to reduce the show’s carbon footprint by offering special prizes to groups of 4 or more who carpool. (But keep in mind the average temperature is 100 degrees in the shade so pack LOTS of deodorant). This year the Strokes, Kanye West, and Arcade Fire (along with a hundred more major acts) will light up the festival’s five major stages.
Named one of the “50 Moments That Changed Rock & Roll” by Rolling Stone Magazine, Bonnaroo is one of the largest and most musically diverse festivals in the United States. Held on a farm in Manchester, Tennessee, Bonnaroo (which is Creole slang for “good stuff”) hosts major acts in genres from indie rock, hip hop, bluegrass, and Americana. Last year an estimated 80,000 people attended the four-day multi-stage festival.
The festival sprawls out, creating a 100-acre city that includes a comedy tent, beer festival, carnival rides, and even a nightly silent disco which allows patrons to dance the night away to synched up headphones while not violating local noise-ordinances. (How considerate.)

The Startup Kids is a to-be-released documentary about young web entrepreneurs in the U.S and Europe. The recession has created many new startups often out of sheer necessity, and that’s exactly what these two Icelandic girls, Sesselja Vilhjalmsdottir and Vala Halldorsdottir did – they went out and got started. Even with But although they received a EU grant to do the filming, they still need additional funding to finish post-production as well as funds for promoting and premiering the film. You can pledge money here on KickStarter to help them finish this project and we can see interviews from some 70 leading entrepreneurs.

On the way they’ve had some advertures, such as getting questioned by security for trying to sneak into the Google cafeteria and some interesting scenes shot at a Berlin start-up brunch.
The game changing technology company Condition ONE is getting you as close to the front line of the Libyan Revolution as possible, without actually having to worry about ducking out of the way from stray bullets. This promo video is beyond epic and it really demonstrates how you easily you can pan through all the bloody happenings with a simple swoosh of your iPad. I for one am not an iPad owner, but whoa, this really is awesome and finally a legit reason to own a iPad. The demo starts out just like any news report, but quickly you are reminded just how close you can feel to the people of Libya with a simple touch of your finger.
