Adventure seekers and travelers have long photographed their surroundings to serve as inspiration and to retain nostalgia. The cameras used have adapted and changed as much as the scenery they intend to capture. In no one camera is the evolution of this notion seen as clearly as with the Olympus Tough TG-810 ($400). The 14 megapixel camera is not only waterproof, freezeproof, shockproof and crushproof, but dripping with advanced features like: GPS, Electronic Compass and Manometer for detailed tagging; HD video capture with HDMI Control; 3D Photo Mode that captures two shots to create a 3D effect, even underwater; Eye-Fi card compatibility for automatic wireless uploading of images; advanced AF tracking to keep your adventure subjects nice and crisp; and in-camera filters and panorama abilities. Long story short, you’re looking at one of the finest new adventure photography tools out there. You can buy it now here for $400.
So here is the most terrifying thing but at the same time the most gnarliest thing you will see all day. It is a first person helmet cam view of a biker in the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo race in Chile. It’s some pretty amazing footage, and even more amazing that the rider manages to make it down all those steps and jumps without crashing (even when a dog runs out in front of him).
National Geographic continues its analysis of the human race by looking at some of the numbers that characterize us as a population and by taking a shot at the face of the most “typical” person on the planet. I swear I am not typical, I am the most unique person to ever exist on planet Earth, yea right.
YouTuber cofauver grew a beard for 1 year and 6 weeks as part of a bet, and chronicled his transition from a clean-faced cub to a gruffy man, then wolfman, then statesman and beyond AND IT KICKS ASS. If I could grow a beard I would probably do this, but I have one little patch on the side of my cheeks where I can’t grow hair and it makes me look like a scruffy dirty crack head looking for spare change.
February is coming to an end so that only means one thing, no not that winter is ending, more like a lot of people failed miserably and youtube user Twisternederland7 was there to round them all up in one nice little video. You really can’t go wrong with a fail video compilation, just sit back and enjoy the little time of people failing a lot worse then you, if that is even possible.
When you have a video with Emily Blunt, Scarlet Johansson, Kelly Ripa, Eva Longoria, Minka Kelly, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, and Lindsay Lohan humping big balls, you can’t really go wrong. Here is the latest sketch video from Jimmy Kimmel’s tonight show full of hilariousness. Jessica Biel is definitely the best in this video, her straight face humping is pretty amazing, I like her even more now, if that is even possible.
Although marching band’s get made fun of a lot by the media, they are pretty awesome if you think about it. They are a fraternity of hundreds of kids deep, they get front row for every major sports game, as well as being able to travel with the team, and they get to jam out all day in which some of the kids actually get scholarships for. Doesn’t sound so bad to me, and supposedly band chicks are freaks in the bed, that is just what I’ve heard though. This video below shows George Mason’s Green Machine marching band and how awesome school bands can be if the right song is chosen, and you can see how excited they are, especially the creature in the front with the red shirt, geez chill out sparky.
Even if you gave your Valentine a shitty box of chocolates and nothing else, it was better then this guy’s gift, aka the most disturbing Valentine’s Day gift EVER. This was done for a Brazilian TV show and the girl in the video, Dani Bolina, is a cast member. The reason she couldn’t get out was because the doors on the car were fixed, like a police car. Soooo now that car is completely infested with cockroaches, was it worth it? DEFINITELY.
So this is pretty much how it went down. Everyone was telling people they had to listen to Arcade Fire and they were an awesome band. A lot of people did listen to them but they pretty much stayed somewhat out of the spotlight, aka they were still cool. They just won best album of the year now are getting very big and being blasted on the radio left and right, aka not cool anymore, I liked Arcade Fire before they won best album of the year at the Grammy’s, says me in my best snotty hispter voice I can imitate. Well if you still don’t know who Arcade Fire, you better learn quick, unless you want this to happen to you, see below.
So I am sure everyone is aware of the protesting and rallies that have gone down in Wisconsin. Personally I really don’t know exactly what they are even protesting, something about a budget repair bill being passed and it is going to cut a bunch of job and money funding. I didn’t even know Wisconsin was an actual state till a week ago so don’t take my word for it though. Anyway a representative by the name of Gordon Hintz go an email telling him the meeting and voting would start at 5:00, he got there at 5 o’clock and the voting had already began, this was pretty much the last straw and he goes bananas on everyone in the room. Hintz for 2016 president all the way.
Bonus: A very moving video made by a UW Madison student showing the rally and protests over Governor Walker’s budget repair bill. Music is Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).” (seen below)
