So 2011 marks the 20th anniversary for the best pirate movie ever made, Hook, which included Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, and Julia Roberts. I don’t care how many Pirates of the Caribbean they come out with, none will be better then Hook starring the ever so awesome Lost Boys. The whole movie is bad ass from start to finish, especially the dinner scene at the table, with the food fight and Pan and Rufio going back and forth with insults. Everyone knows these things about the movie, but here are 13 things you probably didn’t know, Bang-a-ranggggggggggggggg.

I should just start naming crib of the week, Guz architecture residence of the week, because this is the third time I have picked a house from the amazing architecture firm based out of Singapore. This week we are gong to dive into the Cluny house, bringing the rainforest into your home (click images to enlarge to really see the detail of the residence.). Description from Guz Architects:
The project demonstrates how technology, planning and design can be applied sensitively to generate a comfortable, luxurious, yet sustainable family home.
Photovoltaic cells and solar water heaters are employed together with design for passive cooling and cross ventilation to reduce energy usage. Irrigation tanks and roof gardens collect and recycle rainwater; and the use of materials such as recycled teak and artificial timber adds warmth without compromising the finite resources of our environment.

So here is the most terrifying thing but at the same time the most gnarliest thing you will see all day. It is a first person helmet cam view of a biker in the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo race in Chile. It’s some pretty amazing footage, and even more amazing that the rider manages to make it down all those steps and jumps without crashing (even when a dog runs out in front of him).

I get how some people like drugs, they make you feel better for short periods of time, that’s fine and dandy, but why anyone does meth is beyond me, it pretty much turns your face into the bitter beer face guy’s and you get red marks all over, what they are I don’t know I am not a dermatologist but they are gross. Here is an extensive look at normal looking people destroyed by meth in a short time. Don’t do drugs kids, just drink alcohol and party like a rockstar, no drugs though.

So I was trying to do some homework on the Ipad 2 release yesterday and quickly got tired of skimming through paragraphs and paragraphs just to find out what has really changed and decided it needed to be simply put somewhere. Aside from feeling bad about wondering if Steve Jobs was 33% thinner coming back from his health issues here’s what you need to know.
New With the Ipad 2:
-8.8mm 33% thinner than original
-Faster, new dual core processor Jobs claims is twice the speed
-Front and Back video/still cameras (The specs for the iPad’s rear-facing camera only lists one number: 720p. That should mean 1280 x 720 pixels, which gives a megapixel figure of 0.92, clearly useless for stills. Wired.com)
-a magnetic ‘smart cover’ that grips to the iPad using magnets and can be repurposed as a stand.
-high definition hdmi output
-Improved version of operating system, Imovie and Garageband
Price remains the same and contrary to popular belief screen resolution is the same and the anti glare screen was left out.

Here is an awesome photography set depicting our world in soap bubbles. Unfortunately I don’t know anything about the photographer who put these together so I apologize but it is definitely rad stuff. I was also going to label the location of each bubble, but quickly realized my geography skills aren’t as good as i thought they were. Some noticeable locations are Chicago, D.C., New York, among many others. I don’t know why they didn’t include my beloved home state of New Jersey, maybe the soap bubbles wouldn’t last more than .3 seconds in the polluted air, or maybe that back drop of run down factories and fist pumping guidos wasn’t to appeasing to the eye.

National Geographic continues its analysis of the human race by looking at some of the numbers that characterize us as a population and by taking a shot at the face of the most “typical” person on the planet. I swear I am not typical, I am the most unique person to ever exist on planet Earth, yea right.
Who knew deadbeat drunk alcoholics were also such phenomenal Yoga practitioners. Also known as Irish Yoga, here is a list of 10 well known and healthy Yoga positions usually performed on a mat during a spiritual relaxing Yoga session, with candles lit and soft guitar music playing. Next to that is that same Yoga position performed by the talented drunks of the world. If you are going to black out and fall asleep somewhere in public you better make sure you are in a relaxing pose to nurse health back to those wobbly legs.

I think everyone on Earth is aware of Charlie Sheen being a friggen gnarley gnarlington and winning in every aspect, so we aren’t going to post every time a new video of his awesomness comes out, which we probably should. But in case you aren’t on Charlie’s level here is your chance to start WINNINGGGG. Artist Alex Pardee created this kick ass poster inspired by Sheen’s winning all day every day. It is a 17″ x 22″ print with archival inks on acid free velvet cotton rag. You can buy yours here for $25 and decorate your walls with radical gnarlington tigerblood awesomeness. (The poster was inspired by the video below, Sheen doing work.)
