  • Audrina Patridge Catcalling Women, Kind Of. [Video]

  • Movie Posters for Fictitious Sequels we Wish Were Real

    Hollywood has somewhat of a sick obsession with sequels. Even if a movie is open and shut, if there’s a will there’s a way in Tinseltown. Los Angeles-based art gallery iam8bit put up an art show, ‘Sequel’, that showcases more than 40 illustrated posters of fictitious follow-up movies. From Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II to Fight Club 2 (which is actually in the works as a graphic novel) to a sequel to The Shining, these movies might seem sacrilegious, but heck, I’d probably pay to see them all. The Sequel exhibition, currently on display till 23 November 2014.

  • Vape Is The Oxford Dictionaries Word Of The Year

    It’s been a great year for stupid words, but of all the poor portmanteaus and atrocious abbreviations, one stood out from all the rest. And apparently that one was vape. As Oxford so eloquently puts it, vape means to “inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device.” There is also a related noun, “vaping.” Vaping was actually coined before vape, with its first use pertaining to vapour-producing tobacco products occurring way back in 1983. But it was in 2009 that vape really started to catch on. And in the last two years, use of the term has exploded. What other asinine words did vape beat out for its title? Here’s the list from Oxford Dictionaries: bae n. used as a term of endearment for one’s romantic partner. budtender n. a person whose job is to serve customers in a cannabis dispensary or shop. contactless adj. relating to or involving technologies that allow a smart card, mobile phone, etc. to contact wirelessly to an electronic reader, typically in order to make a payment. indyref, n. an abbreviation of ‘independence referendum’, in reference to the referendum on Scottish independence, held in Scotland on 18 September 2014, in more »

  • An Artist Wants To Live Another Person’s Life Via VR Goggles For 28 Days

    Would you like to experience a random person’s life for 28 days? But with no control over what they do? Of course you wouldn’t. That would drive anyone mad. But how mad? We’ll soon find out, all for the sake of art! Artist Mark Farid intends on wearing a VR headset 24 hours a day for 28 days. He will be viewing the life of a heterosexual male who’s in a relationship and is known only as the Input. That means for 28 days, Farid won’t see his own body or surroundings, just what the Input experiences. Including sexy time with his significant other! For the duration of the project, Farid will inhabit a space with a bed, toilet, and shower that will be on constant display to his audience. There will also be a screen projecting just what Farid sees for the audience to view. Will Farid lose his sense of self? Probably. Will he lose his mind. Most certainly! Which is why Farid will talk to a psychologist for one hour each day (while still wearing the headset) and will be under constant medical supervision. Of course, a project such as this comes with many expenses. A Kickstarter more »

  • Watch This New Video of Flight Patterns Across the UK

    London is the hub for the eastern and western hemispheres to reach one another. Each year over 2 million flights travel in and out of their airports spreading out in every direction from the island. Every single one of these flights is logged and mapped out through data, and now we can visualize these patterns thanks to NATS. Taking radar data from over 7,000 flights, the clip shows a standard day of aviation in the UK, beginning with an aeronautical invasion from the US between midnight and 5am before the islands light up with activity. Both Europe 24 and North Atlantic Skies were designed to give an overview of the daily complexity and volumes of air traffic across the UK and Europe and to do so in a way that was cinematic and exciting to watch.   UK 24 from NATS on Vimeo.

  • There’s a 2.7 Acre Floating Park Being Built on NYC’s Hudson River

    The old decrepit pier hugging the Hudson river on Manhattan is about to be knocked down and replaces with a beautiful 2.7 acre park on the water, including rolling hills and even an outdoor amphitheater. The new Hudson River Park Trust has revealed that the park will be largely financed by a foundation formed by the billionaire couple Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg. Von Furstenberg and Diller, the former head of Paramount Pictures and Fox, have committed $130 million to the park, with the city pledging another $17 million, and $18 million from New York State to build an esplanade to the pier park. The park will be between the pile fields of Pier 54 and Pier 56, which will remain in order to provide a fish habitat. If and when the project is approved, construction would begin next year with an expected completion date of 2018 or 2019.

  • This App Shows You What 200 Calories Looks Like. And It’s Depressing.

    If obesity statistics are to be believed, many of us are eating too much. And apparently, our gargantuan portions aren’t doing our bodies any favors. To visualize just how little we need to eat to get so many calories, take a look at a new iOS app called Calorific. Calorific is a collection of beautifully photographed plates of different foods with tranquil, pastel backgrounds. Each food is shown as a 200 calorie portion, and many of the photos are disheartening. To reach that 200 calorie mark, you wouldn’t even be able to eat an entire donut, bagel, muffin, or avocado. And it would be just a handful of Cadbury Mini Eggs. What kind of person has the willpower for that? The app also shows foods like lettuce or celery that you could eat a ton of, but what’s the fun in that? After all, in the words of Ron Swanson, “Salad isn’t food, it’s what food eats.”
