Surf wear maker Rip Curl recently teamed up with Timeslice Films for an ambitious project of shooting surfers in “bullet-time“, the effect that many people first saw in The Matrix. They used a crazy camera array of 52 Canon Rebel DSLRs in order to capture the same shot from 52 different angles, stringing them together for the final footage.
Weezer has always been known to produce fun upbeat songs and “Memories” is no exception. This song has a feel good vibe writen all over it and they decided to make the video with a little bit of that goodness. For their latest video, the band decided to hang out with the cast of “Jackass” and show everyone how to really have a good time and make some “memories” that you’ll remember forever. There’s everything you would expect from the “Jackass” guys – skateboarding, funny faces, odd characters, and stupid but hilarious stunts.
Put Mike Tyson in any comedy and it’s instant gold. Just put a camera on him and it’s gold. Why does he not have a reality show yet? Seriously. Mike’s now breaking out his best dance moves with Wayne Brady and Bobby Brown in “Every Little Step I Take” presented by Funny or Die. Best part is Mike dancing past the letters at the 1:39 mark. Threw Mike on the Piano doing Phil Collins and Mikes best reality moments clips here too. “I’ll fuck you til you love me faget!” What does that even mean, its great though. Reality show time Mike!
Thank god Justin Bieber is a 51 year old pedophile. I was starting to get depressed with the thought that a 10 year old boy with a dyke cut was getting more action than I am. This news report will explain everything you need to know, very shocking stuff.
Best Made Company axes have a new series of short films coming this Fall entitled CHOP. Succinctly described as “celebrating the collision between a Best Made axe and wood,” the seductively destructive 30 second teaser already has us itching for more. Directed by Finn O’Hara with music by Nico Muhly.
If you miss Conan O’Brien as much as we do, then you are probably really starting to have withdrawals like us. Luckily he is starting to take questions from people and then answer them with a video response. Of course they are hilarious and awesome. Below is a video response from Conan on a question asking him what his favorite sandwich was that he got to try on his time off from television. Conan not only answers the question, but gives a tutorial on how to make this tasty sandwich, prepare to laugh your ass off. Reminder Conan returns November 8th on TBS, THANK GOD.
As digital content takes away more and more advertising dollars from print it seems that the print industry is scrapping for every last way to bring in additional dollars. Theres been rumors of audio ads in print publications for a couple years now but it seems the technology has never really been small or cheap enough to mass produce. Either way don’t be surprised one day when you go to open up your paper for a quiet Sunday morning read and have some stupid car commercial barking in your face. Try to restrain from smashing and having this ruin your morning. Readers of the Times of India were surprised with a VW car ad when their opened the paper this morning.
This makes me feel old. One day when someone finally cracks time travel, I’m going straight back to the 90s. Here is a nice little quick mix of all things 90′s set to a solid 90′s track, cowabunga dude.
Ken Block and DC are back at it again in Gymkhana. We’ve covered the previous episodes but if you missed it you can check the first on here, and another here. Shot just south of Paris, France in Linas at l’Autodrome de Linas –Montlhéry, this 1.58 mile oval track, built in 1924, features banks as steep as 51 degrees, which is more than double the standard incline of most NASCAR ovals. Chosen by Ken for this specific reason, the ramp-like banking proved to be a unique and exciting challenge. The driving physics for the stunts performed were totally unknown until Ken attempted the maneuvers during filming.
“Do not think that I don’t know where I’m at right now. I’m also honored to be on this fuckin’ stage in the Bronx, the fuckin’ birthplace of Hip Hop.”- Eminem
Last night marked the first of Eminem and Jay-Z’s two sold-out performances at Yankees Stadium in the Bronx. Th performance was a star-studded event that found Hip Hop’s two reigning titans sharing the stage with a plethora of guest artists and zootpatrol was there first hand. I know everyone is hearing how incredible the show was but it truly was a once in a life time event that I am so happy I got to attend. I am not going to bore you with a play by play review because everything I write will end with me just saying how awesome it was.
Highlights for me though was when Dr. Dre came out as well as 50 Cent during Em’s performance. Chris Martin from Coldplay coming out during Jay-z’s set was also a highlight as well as Beyonce doing a song with Hov with jay remarking “Damn that girl is baaaaad.” when she left the stage. I really liked how Jay-Z paid homage to Notorious BIG in a giant way, playing a few Biggie songs before playing a clip of an old interview on Big explaining performing in front of 30,000 people on the big screen, it was a nice touch. From beginning to end it was just unbelievable leaving me getting excited just thinking back on the night. If anyone reads this and does not have tickets for tonight, do yourself a favor and just go to the stadium and scalp them, sell your body if you need to, it’s worth it.
Highlights of this video:
1. How awesome is 50 Cents glow in the dark gear.
2. Dr. Dre telling us he isn’t going to let us down with Detox gave me chills, he is going in HARDDDD.
3. Yankee Stadium looked unreal last night with the sold out crowd bouncing the whole time.
4. Loved how Eminem didn’t have Drake come on stage to do the chorus of Forever live, that talentless ass bag doesn’t deserve to be on the same stage.
Beyonce definitely winked, smiled, and asked me to have sex with her back stage after the show. Unfortunately security didn’t believe me and they wouldn’t let me through, freakin cock blockers.
