In a new project by New Orleans’ Candy Chang an abandoned building on Marigny and Burgundy gets some life pumped into it as a public chalkboard. The communal bucket-list now reads: Before I Die I Want To… “DANCE,” “Grow Old,” “Keep living in NOLA” and, our favorite, “be tried for piracey.” Anything that lets the community get involved is always a major hit with us, and this is just another example of how artists can really get the creative juices of the average person flowing. I really need to get on my bucket list. Riding an elephant and drinking snakes blood arent going to just magically happen, ya know?
Remember this guy from grade school? He loved Atari, computer programming, and long division. And he also found himself stuffed into lockers on a daily basis. But then he learned karate, and everyone who used to pick on him started to fear him, least he pull out an immaculate karate chop to the back of your neck. And so Karate Kyle was born:

After posting photos of his face on Flickr, Noam Galai has now appeared in countless artworks without his permission. He’s honored by the free works, but upset by the ones that profit off his art. photography was stolen hundreds of times for years without his knowledge. This is his story, and it truly is amazing to see how something can spread so fast over night. I know 10 minutes is about 9 minutes too much for your attention span, but if you got the time check it out, it really is an amazing story.
AHHHHHH burgers, the all-American comfort food enjoyed by millions every day in the states. How anyone can not eat meat is really beyond me, especially when they eat fish or chicken, whats the difference, but that debate is for another day. Today we are going to just enjoy these artery clogging burgers that have been fueling America’s fat epidemic for many years, and no you won’t be finding the Big Mac or the Whooper anywhere near this list. Here are the top 25 burgers found around the United States, in no particular order, enjoy fat asses.
Even superstar chef Thomas Keller is a fan of the West Coast chain – and with good reason. The cooked-to-order burgers are made from Harris Ranch beef and served with hand-cut fries. For a messier, more indulgent experience, order your burger “Animal Style” for extra sauce and chopped grilled onions. in-n-out.com
Minetta Tavern’s excellent burgers use a beef blend – dry-aged rib eye, skirt steak, brisket and short rib-from famed purveyor Pat La Frieda, and buns from Balthazar Bakery. minettatavernny.com

If you are not familiar with the song Careless Whisper by George Michael, you will recognize it as soon as you play the video below. It has a famous saxophone melody that makes you just want to start making passionate love.

This is a beautiful way to end the week.

1. I don’t know about you, but a highlight of my childhood was talking into the fan to hear my robot voice.
2. I think my other three stove burners are becoming jealous of front-right.
3. Every phone should have the same charger.
4. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
5. Double-Stuffed Oreos should just be called Oreos, and regular Oreos should be called Diet Oreos.

This is the new trailer for the down hill mountain biking movie, Where The Trail Ends, and it is amazing. The project started deep in the Gobi desert in China earlier this year. Everyone who knows me knows that biking is my thing, and I totally rip. Kidding. Not really. I rip. Living in the City Ive moved on to fixed gears but I can certainly appreciate the intensity and thrill seeking mentality associated with this down hill culture. This doc is great because it shows the lengths that some of these riders go to in order to find the perfect ride. Much like back country snowboarding, most times the best runs are far off the map, and require a ton of effort just to score one monster shred session.
This is by far one of the best Mike Tyson tributes I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot because I find Mike Tyson to be one of the most interesting sports figures of my time. Was he the best boxer of all time? Probably not, but he had the skills, speed, and power to stand toe to toe with the best of them for sure. Everyone knows his story. A poor kid from the streets, robbing and stealing to survive, when an old white guy by the name of Cus D’Amato took him under his wing. He exploded onto the boxing scene and was the youngest heavy weight champ ever. Here is an amazing tribute video to Tyson starting in 1985 rising through the rankings, and destroying everyone in his path. His speed and power displayed here is down right scary. They said his punch was the equivalent to putting a phone book to the side of your head and letting Mark McGuire hit you full speed with a swing of a bat. Also they said his bare fisted punch would have a 85% chance of giving someone brain damage, OOOOOOOOOOOOO K.
On March 9th, 1997, the world lost an icon, an entertainer, a father, a beloved member of the hip hop community, a visionary, a lyrical genius, and a true urban legend. That was the day Christopher George Latore Wallace, but known to many as Biggie Smalls, aka Frank White, aka the Notorious B.I.G. died and the hip hop world has not been the same since he left, but his legacy will live on forever. Two days ago was the anniversary and this should have been posted then, but it’s never too late for a Biggie post right? Every March 9th the real hip-hop heads sit back and reminisce the “Live from Bedford Stuyvesant The Livest one / Representing BK to the fullest / Gats I pull it bastards ducking when Big be bucking / Chickenheads be cluckin’ in my bathroom fuckin’ And those that rushes my clutches get put on crutches / Get smoked like Dutches from the master.” here are our top 10 Biggie tracks.
#10) “PARTY AND BULLSH*T”
This was the first time I heard Big, actually at one of our writers, k-bone, parties. It was on the “Who’s the Man?” soundtrack. Big was just raw back then. He was a SOURCE Unsigned Hype emcee who went from Uptown records w then A &R Sean “Puffy” Combs, over to Bad Boy Records, Combs label that he started once he left Uptown. “Party and Bullshit” was the first solo record that was released under his name.
#9) MACHINE GUN FUNK”
This is one of my favorite records off “Ready to Die.” “So you wanna be hardcore….” Is how the song starts with a beat that just gets you going. Produced by Easy Mo Bee, this is one of Big’s many lyrical gems.
