No this is not a Back to the Future project starring Marty McFly and Doc Brown. It is a photography project by Irina Werning who is a professional photographer from Buenos Aires. She explains on her site that she is totally obsessed with old photographs, so when she would visit other people’s houses she would immediately be drawn to the old photographs hanging on the wall. When looking at the pictures she would think what that person would look like in the same pose, same outfit, and same scene. Well she actually started doing it and it is pretty amazing and awesome. She admits the is a little obsessive on the detail, but that is what makes these photographs so great. For more of her work and more on this project you can check out her website found here.

This is how you throw up like a boss at choir practice. Step 1, get an awesome bowl cut. Step 2, do not sing along whatsoever. Step 3, get physically sick from the awful singing that is surrounding you. Step 4, let a warning shot of puke go to let people know you mean business. Step 5, When every single person does not show you the respect you should be given, unleash the rest of the ammunition. Step 5, do all of this with a straight face, folded arms, while not giving one single fuck, LIKE A BOSS.
Bonnaroo has now reached it’s 10th anniversy, and with a milestone like that, fans have been waiting patiently while other big festivals have already announced their lineups. Well it was Bonnaroo’s turn and they did not let their fans down with this one. Buffalo Springfield will headline the event after a 43 year hiatus. The group includes Neil Young, Stephen Stills, Richie Furay and Jim Messina. Buffalo Springfield is best known for the song “For What It’s Worth”. They will be joined with Eminem, Mumford and Sons, Lil Wayne, and the Strokes just to name a few. I have said I am going to Bonnaroo the past 5 years with no success at all, so maybe this will be the one.
So of course by now I am sure you have seen the video of news reporter Serene Branson tripping over her words, to say the least. Well at first it was reported that it was because she suffered a mild stroke on camera. If this was the case it would be mean to make fun of her, but of course that wasn’t true, she is just an idiot, or a genius who created a secret language only spoken by her.
If you missed it or just want to see it again, you can catch the original video below
Every time Home Alone comes on TV, I stop everything Im doing, and sit back to watch the magic of Kevin McCallister. Say what you will about Macaulay Culkin, but he was perfect in this movie, and it will forever go down as a Xmas staple. There are so many good one liners in this, its impossible to name them all, but here are a few things about the movie that you probably didnt know.

Banksy has recently popped up in Hollywood as of late, my guess is because of the Oscars being held on Feb. 27th, in which he is nominated for best documentary for “Exit through the Gift Shop”. I am actually really excited about the Oscars just because of Banksy. The problem the academy is having is they don’t know who he is at all, so they don’t know how to invite him, or not to have him kicked out when he tries to get to his seat, as well as they don’t know who is going to come up and accept the award if he wins. People across the board say he is a shoe in to win the award, but because of the mystery I wonder if he will get shafted to avoid problems, we shall see. (P.S. I am back from Miami so posting will be back to normal HOLLA.)
The internet is a weapon to fight oppression which is arguably more powerful than guns with it’s ability to bring together the masses. The recent events in Egypt are proof of that. And now the United States is officially recognizing and pledging to aid internet freedom fighters in their fights against worldwide repressive governments. In a speech at George Washington University yesterday Secretary of State Hilary Clinton expressed a venture capital like funding approach to activists trying to fight against repressive countries internet censorship. Pledging $25 million of US support. She stated “I urge countries everywhere instead to join us in the bet we have made, a bet that an open Internet will lead to stronger, more prosperous countries. At its core, it’s an extension of the bet that the United States has been making for more than 200 years, that open societies give rise to the most lasting progress, that the rule of law is the firmest foundation for justice and peace, and that innovation thrives where ideas of all kinds are aired and explored.” This is the type of the US foreign policy that generation Y can really wrap their heads around and support and there still might be hope for Hilary not being a psycho hose beast after all.
UFC is huge right? Violent sports like football and hockey are huge with their undertones of physical combat? Then what are we waiting for? It’s time to make brawling a controlled sport. It’s as simple as several referees, a massive closed in mat and teams of fighters. This hockey game is proof it needs to be developed. You most likely have heard or seen pieces of this already especially if your from the tri-state, but recently the worst team in hockey, the New York Islanders brought hockey back to it’s roots with 3 periods of straight brawling with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This stems from a Feb 2nd meeting of the two teams in which the Islander’s goalie got dropped in one punch by the Penguins goalie and there was also another very cheap hit that gave an Islander player a concussion. This game from Feb 11th was the Islanders retaliation. This 17 min video catches all the highlights, well put together by AGreatDayForHockey87 on Youtube.
Swedish street artist Akay created a robotic device to spray paint rainbows. Akay’s campaign “Instruments of Mass Destructions” revolves around creating complex technical and robotic ways to create street art. A nice rainbow would brighten up anyones day as they walk down the street.
This guy, Usman Ahmed Uzzy, know how to make an entrance, he has dance moves for days, a sweet fake gold chain out of 1998, and weighs 90 pounds, so he has to at least be an incredible fighter to back up this Goliath swagger right? Not so much apparently, hilarious.
