Some people take sport to a higher level and make it art. Justin Darlington and Guy Dupuy try to do this during a dunking contest and in my eyes they succeed with honors. This is one of the best head to head dunk contests I’ve ever seen, of course Jordan vs Wilkins taking the cake but come on throw these kids a bone. What makes this contest unique is the creativity of the dunks pulled off, some of which I’ve never seen before. I especially enjoy the rushing of the court by the crowd after every dunk, it adds a great touch.
The latest art installation from Banksy popped up at Brighton Pier in England. The re-purposed child’s ride features a dolphin tangled up in fishing nets attempting to escape a leaking BP oil drum, can you say genius. It’s funny how when something isn’t hot news anymore the American media tends to completely shut it out of the headlines. Since they stopped the oil I haven’t heard one word on how the clean up was going and or the effects it is having. It’s old news so out of sight out of mind, so much so your kids are bound to ride it with a big smile on their face.
What I would ever need to carry 12 beers strapped to my chest like Rambo is beyond me, but I don’t think that far ahead, I want this thing. There are 12 insulated holsters and each one holds a single 12-ounce can. I guess next time you’re tailgating, camping or attending a BYOB party you can avoid those long, thirsty walks back to the cooler or the fridge by keeping a plethora of your favorite canned beers right on your chest. Warning: Wearing this holster may result in your friends using you as a human pack mule that exclusively carries beer. You can buy it here for $29.95
* Capacity: (12) 12 oz cans
* Adjustable waist belt fits waist (or belly) 28” to 42”
This incredible skate video was shot at 120 frames per second to give it an awesome feel and look. The tricks pulled off are in super slow motion to give your naked eye the chance to see what goes into pulling off those gnarley tricks you see the pros pull. Shot by Raphaël Aupy using a red camera. Song: It’s Alright, Artist: Bang Gang, Album: Something Wrong. FYI.
Rope swings and cliff jumping is one of the coolest and most fun things to do on Earth, simple as that, so when I saw this video I was just blown away with it’s pure awesomeness. The video features Mike Wilson killing it on the Truckee River doing 60 foot double and triple back flips. The video is very well put together and great music to go along with it. I love how everyone rafting down the river pulls over and enjoys the show, as would I. If this doesn’t get you in the mood for the weekend, I don’t know what will. You can visit Mike Miller’s site for more extreme stuff found here.
This video is pretty rad and almost hypnotizing when watching it. If you enjoy watching this sort of thing, here’s nearly 7 minutes of it for your viewing pleasure! Personal favorites are the Karate Chop and Eggs on Face. The video was shot on the Photron SA1.1, Directed and produced by Philip Heron and James Adair.
There’s nothing quite like hearing the tune of one of your favorite cartoon shows to send a jolt of nostalgia right through your body. But anyone can line up a playlist of a bunch of cartoon themes, so DeStorm wanted to do something a bit different. He’s used the power of multiple voice tracks to record a series of videos called “Soul Tunes” where he uses he R&B song stylings to cover the themes of many classic show themes. The first video below has Tailspin, Chip and Dale, Pinky and the Brain and more. I’ve posted two more videos after the jump with even more tracks. Did he get your favorite?
There are millions of fire hydrants all over the world, but for some reason they are painted red every single time. I get the whole “everyone needs to be aware there is a fire hydrant there so lets paint it red” theory, but come on spice it up a little bit. That is why I have gone around my town and painted every fire hydrant as a penis, there is now 50, 3 foot tall penis hydrants scattered throughout my town, I rule. On a little more creative note, here is a bunch of fire hydrant art found around the country.
Words cannot describe how very excellent this is: DeviantARTist Suzuran drew 54 Marvel characters in the sprite-tastic style of classic Mega Man. If you wish to weep tears of joy, click the image above to see the full panorama in all it’s glory. Update: For easier (though slightly less awesome) viewing, we’ve sliced the panorama up into five component panels; if you like what you see, check out Suzuran’s DeviantART page for more.
If you were one of the many souls whose minds immediately leapt to thoughts of a resurrected Firebird when GM first introduced the Chevrolet Camaro Concept way back in 2006, you’re probably a bit bitter about the fact GM kicked Pontiac to the curb before that dream every came to life. Fortunately, Classic Design Concepts stepped in to fill the void in a big way. The Firebreather takes some of the more iconic elements of the Firebird’s history and melds them with the already muscular lines of Chevrolet’s pony bruiser. In addition to the creative body work, the car packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that manages to dump 599 horsepower onto the rear tires and the Classic Design Concepts team also took the time to work over the interior with a few Firebird-like design elements. If you really want one you are in luck, they are producing just 50 of them for only $60,000 which isn’t that bad when you think of the limited quantity of the car. Since we know you are made of money go to the site found here to go buy one.
