Premiering on April 14th at 10pm on the Travel Channel is a high intensity new show about NYC bike messengers. Im sure that this show will have some familiar added drama just like all reality shows. However, unlike others show that are out right now, I dont think that this profession really needs too much manufactured drama to make it a white knuckle ride for fans. Personally being a biker in NYC makes me really appreciate these guys to the fullest. When I see them rip by and owning traffic, I have to just pull to the side and admire their skill and fearlessness.
I meant to post this last week but it slipped through the cracks. The whole song is about how ugly and inefficient their dicks are, which is a lot more interesting and skillful then rapping about cars money and hoes, well pretty much the same thing.

Here is another addition of what your state is awesome at and what it sucks balls at. This edition focuses in on the environment. Once again my home state of New Jersey holds it down, not. Click on the images to enlarge to see all that states in detail.
I think we can all agree that the cooler your office space is, the easier it is getting yourself motivated to go to work. My first job was basically inside this mini cube with high walls, and it was the worst thing I ever had to do. My current office is filled with ping pong tables, kegs of cold beer, rubix cubes, gongs, pets, flat screens, snow globes, and more couches and relaxing massage chairs than your mind can even fathom should be allowed in a legit office building. Simply stated, my company is right on par with the leaders in the tech game when it comes to making their employees feel comfortable and at home when they are in the office. A new blog Tech Crunch recently profiled the YELP office in San Fran, and whoa! this place is awesome. Its not yet at the level of google, but the ipad keg app and the random dog walking around sure do sound awesome. Check it out, and finally get an explanation why when the YELP site is down, the image that comes up is a dog chewing through an ethernet cable.
This is one of the most extreme residential sites I have seen, hands down. Sadly there is no images of the actual house inside yet, but these aerial pictures of the site is truly remarkable. It’s owned by architect Charles Sieger (of Sieger Suarez), who has designed over $10 billion in real estate properties. Yes there is a working moat with a fully functional bridge, to keep zombies out of course. I have also included a video to Birdman’s music video Fire Flame, why? Because the opening scene is a walk through the main doors and over the moat into the house you see here, sweeeeeeeeeeeeet, fire flame SPITTAAAAA.

As if people in Brooklyn dont have it bad enough with the stereotypes, a new sticker has been popping up all over the place. Subways, signs, and public phones are getting plastered with what is being called the Williamsburg Waldo. So I guess any cartoon that has a stache and some nice fancy shoes must be the “Williamsburg type.” Designer Daniel Savage is the culprit and shouldn’t be confused with the squarer aesthetics of the “The Tailor,” an artist responsible for slapping up adventurous icons on NYC cabs last year. Nice work Dan, I sure do get a kick out of seeing Waldo on subway stops from time to time.
Six degrees of Kevin Bacon anyone? We live in a world trying to understand connections in everything so why not movies? Trying to connect actors to movies is a favorite past time of the seasoned movie buff friends but this new app, “Movies Mobile” by New England Complex Systems Institute takes it a bit further. Using IMDB’s database the network allows users to more deeply explore movie connections. NECS is best known for studying network structure influences for economic conditions, but told wired.com that it could also be done with social groups, disease spread and gene networks. A free version of the app is available for iphones.
Retro fantasticness from Max Dalton — a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off board game. Created for an art exhibit honoring our Gen-X patron saint, John Hughes.
I like skate video and I like dogs, so it is about time someone finally thought to use a dog as an actual skateboard, makes sense to me.
If we grew up hundreds of years ago we probably wouldn’t think of an overpass as a canvas for a piece of art. (In part because there were no overpasses.) However for as long as we can remember, we’ve liked our art like we’ve liked a lot of things in our lives – with a hint of danger and illegality – so we’ve long been fans of what we’ve dubbed The American Graffiti Movement. And, this is our textbook. The History of American Graffiti explores the entire culture of the art form from guys tagging train-cars back in the day to modern day work in cities across the country. Meet all the players in the game and check out some of their best work in this 400 page book. If they taught this in college we probably wouldn’t have gone to just the exams in Art History. $24
