To promote a skate shop in Brazil, designer Beto Janz has made unique skull art from reused skateboards. And the catch is that the customized boards are left on the streets for people to find and keep them.
Notes about “Broken Decks” (from Janz’s website):
Ultra Séries Skate Store has gotten a new structure:
In order to promote this new spot, designer Beto Janz customized used and broken decks, using the decks to produce skulls. Stickers with the brand and the address of the new stores were applied to them and they were left on streets nearby main skateboard places around Curitiba/Brasil – Therefore, anyone who finds them, gets them. An “underground” way of promoting the store.
Hangovers are obviously the least fun thing part of drinking. But have you ever wondered why that is? Here’s an infographic to break the hangover down for you, courtesy of our friends at the MedicalInsurance Blog. And this is pretty much how we felt all of yesterday, hence the slow day.

I want to start out by first saying I didn’t mean to offend or make fun of handicapped people whatsoever with my costume. I had a lot of people legit mad at me when they found out I wasn’t really handicapped, it was all in fun, and come on it’s Halloween give me a break here. With that said this year’s costume, being the great Lieutenant Dan from the movie Forrest Gump, was the best costume I ever put together, and that’s saying a lot because I have had a few good ones.
Friday Costume Contest Mishap
So Friday we went to 46 Lounge and it was a great time, everyone there was really nice with making way for me in my wheelchair. They had a costume contest which I was entered in the “most original” category. They would bring everyone up onto the stage which was a 10′x10′ about 1 foot off the ground. They would announce each person and eliminate them by crowd applause so they would save the best for last, to make it easier for the crowd to decide. So when they got to me there was only 3 of us left. They announced “Lieutenant DANNNNNNNN” and I thought it would be a great idea to pop a wheelie to show off my moves. Welllllll that sounded better on paper and since I only had about 3 hours of actual time in a wheel chair I over shot my wheelie attempt horribly and flew back off the stage (pictures below). In the end it was hilarious and a still managed to take home the win and the cash prize, it was decent.

I knew alcohol wasn’t exactly good for you but worse then heroin, that’s a little extreme. You can check out the whole story and study here.
#1 You post too often about unimportant stuff. This was actually the single biggest reason for unfriending. And I completely agree. I can always hide someone who posts their daily banalities so they don’t show up in the news feed. (And that goes double for you, new parents.)
But the only time I’ve ever unfriended someone was when a guy who was barely an acquaintance sent out an event invitation… and then sent harassing messages twice a day trying to get hundreds of people to RSVP.
I think this one also has to encompass all of the Facebook quizzes. Even if the cereal mascot riding a vehicle that best fits your personality is the Trix Rabbit on a speedboat, I just can’t see that being relevant to all of your virtual “friends.”
#2 You regularly post about polarizing topics. Like politics or religion. (Or, I assume, magnets.)
To be honest I haven’t been to excited about any upcoming movie trailers in a while now, but that changed as soon as I watched this bad boy. Have you ever dreamt of a bad ass action movie where it is ninjas vs cowboys, well it has came true.
Eddie Money is truly a forgotten pop star of the late 70′s and 80′s. Eddie had a string of top 40 hits in the 80′s and single handedly brought back the front man in slick suit look. Everyone knows “Take Me Home Tonight” but probably doesn’t have it on their ipod. The best part of an Eddie Money jam is that they have the same feel good, crank at the bar, sing along vibe as “Livin on Prayer” or any of those played out songs you here everywhere you go. But you don’t hear Eddie everywhere go so you never get sick of him and start hating the assbags and sorority girls singing along. God I hate “Livin on Prayer”. Used to like it and I’m from Jersey too but try going to a bar or wedding in NJ and not hearing it. Here’s 6 of the best Eddie Money jams. He’s also Joe Dirts hero in case you didn’t know.
Eddie Money – I Wanna Go Back

If you want to see a balls to the wall, drug fueled, sex driven, rock and roll partying documentary, then look no further than Cocksucker Blues, quoted by many as being the greatest rock and roll movie ever made. Cocksucker Blues is an unreleased documentary, directed by Robert Frank, which followed the Rolling Stones on their 1972 North American tour. The film was not only unreleased, it is actually under court order, which forbids the film to ever be shown in public. The only exception is that the director, Robert Frank, is allowed to show the film once a year, and needs to be physically present at the screening. The film is a parade of grainy images fueled by wild roadies, back stage partying, naked groupies, over the top drug consumption, and o yea, some concert footage. To put it into perspective, guitarist Keith Richards was quoted as saying, “If anyone in America saw it, we’d never be let in the country again.” If you can manage to get your hands on a copy you won’t be disappointed, we sure weren’t.
Shout out to my boy Cory for tipping us on this.
So a few weeks ago a friend of mine put up a status on facebook saying “You’re a dbag if:_____________?” Of course people quickly added their personal opinions on what constitutes on being a dbag. While the obvious reasons are stated like looking or acting like a character from the Jersey Shore show is a given, there are some others that I found pretty funny, for instance, if you’re Fred Flinstone, you’re a dbag, why? I dunno why but it’s funny. Check out the whole thread below.
