When you first see a celebrity you immediately think how cool they are by there awesome name, but I got news for you, 9 out of 10 celebs have fake names. I know shocking right. What makes it a lot more funny is how these celebs pick these over the top glamorous bad-ass names and they have a nerd-alert real name, it just makes them look like bigger idiots in my opinion. I mean you don’t see me prancing around saying my name is Machine Gun Funkerton, that would just be ridiculous, but seeing how many celebs change their name it’s not that bizarre. My favorite might be how we have all been tricked by Chuck Norris once again, this fucker’s name isn’t Chuck Norris. Damn it Chuck you win again. Check out all these nerds real names below.
Lady GaGa – Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta
Chuck Norris – Carlos Ray Norris
Having gained Internet success with their baby viral video, Evian created a t-shirt in honor of the popular campaign, and boy is it awesome. The tees allow just about anyone to become a totally cool, hip-hoppin baby. The idea behind the campaign is that youth is not a matter of age, but a mindset…and if wearing this will help get you there, more power to ya. You can buy yours here, but sadly they were sold out within hours of them being put up, but hopefully they restock them soon so I can get my baby on.
I don’t know if you have ever met a Sneaker Head, but they are some of the most insane and passionate people I have ever met. I know a guy who has every single pair of Jordans ever made, never worn, mint condition. I met a dude who had over 200 pairs of dunks, and sold a few to send his son to a good school. I even know a guy who is so in love with Nike Dunks, he created a massive painting, called it Dunk Therapy, has shown it all over L.A., and sold prints of it at shoe conventions. There are very few things that get twenty and thirty-somethings more fired up about their youth than sports and fashion. This affinity explains the recent spike in interest in the throwback jerseys and shoes, and nowhere is that more clear than in the realm of basketball. It seems as though many sneaker lovers are in the same boat as me, interested in the reissues from their childhood more than in new styles. Ive owned every pair of shoes on this list, with the exception of the Barkleys. Gross.
These shoes got great exposure from Dee Brown’s “no-look” slam dunk contest victory in 1991, when he took his sweet time pumping up his Reebok Omni-Lites in front of the cameras.
These photographs were taken with a Nimslo 3d stereo camera and boy are they awesome. They images are .gif files which allows for the slight movement of the photo that gives it the 3d effect. Yes that is right no funny glasses required for awesome 3d photography. Check out the whole gallery below. UPDATE: if your interesting in taking this kind of photography you can try to find one of these Nimslo cameras on ebay here.
I will put it out there right away, I hate soccer. Yea the World Cup is cool for about a week, I’ll give it that, but besides one week out of every 4 years it pretty much sucks, sorry. Now with that said I think soccer would be about a million times cooler if there was a goal scored at least every 5 minutes and it was a rule that you had to come up with an awesome celebration, like the one below aka the best soccer goal celebration ever.
Today its hard to find new fresh music that hasn’t been saturated by the influence of marketing giants. All we ever are exposed to is this fake world of rap music that projects an image of money, cars, women, and fame. I’m not sure when this really all happened, but I’m temped to call out Bad Boy or No Limit on this one. At some point hip hop made a drastic 180 from the gritty raw sound of Wu Tang, and even the first NAS album, to the flashy sampled computed generated radio friendly party rap we all hear on the radio today. A good friend has been building an empire in Brake Fast Records and that crew is single handedly breathing life back into the hip hop genre. Their latest project, Crew Cuts Volume 1 is an instant classic. With production work from Tom Delay and a cast full of talented lyricists, this album is perfect from front to back. My personal favorites are track 2 , Meet Me Half Way by Dirt Platoon, and the cult favorite No No No. There have been rumors circulating that Inpsychlopedia Brown will be back in the studio sometime soon, penning new rhymes, so lets hope and pray that the whispers are true. Check out the full Crew Cuts album here and stay up to date with all the upcoming events by Brake Fast Records. If you are a fan of hip hop, you wont need any convincing that this is a label to keep your eye on.
Eastbound and Down, HBO’s greatest, yet highly underrated show, returns September 26th and we’re excited to have Kenny Powers back in our lives. So to get you on board and in the mood, we pulled together all the promotional baseball cards from season 1. We’re having trouble picking our favorite card, but that’s understandable seeing that we can’t even pick our favorite Kenny Powers moment. (Like always click on the picture to enlarge it.)
You may have heard last week about Capt. Brian Bews, a Canadian Air Force pilot who made a last minute ejection during practice for the Alberta International Airshow. Brian was practicing moves at around 100 feet of the ground when he had to make the last minute ejection. Here’s the rundown of events in photos, pretty cool. Talk about some quick thinking.

When you are shopping for new furniture for your apartment, you should be focused on one thing, how cool does it look. That’s it. The main goal aside from getting a good deal is how dope all this new stuff is going to make your pad look. Lets be honest, no girls are attracted to the uniformed college dorm room look. They want something unique and cool. That’s where the Space Invader couch by Igor Chak comes into play. Just look at this thing. It doesn’t say gamer as much as it says class. Its a great design, doubles as an art sculpture, and makes you look like you have some taste in furniture design, of which, of course, you have none. You just read ZootPatrol. So your welcome.
