  • And the Most Hated Team of This Year’s MLB Playoffs is…? (Hint: Not the Yankees)

    According to a recent study conducted by the Wall Street Journal there’s a new king that sits on the thrown of most hated baseball team in this years playoffs. With the Yankees missing the playoffs over the last two seasons fans have turned their torches and pitchforks a bit west. For the second straight year the WSJ has conjured up a metric to gauge Major League Baseball’s Hateability Index, ranking this year’s 10 playoff teams in order of general loathsomeness. The rankings are based on how many points teams racked up in 10 contempt-worthy categories, such as drug suspensions, ridiculous beards and winning too much. (As with driver’s licenses, points are bad here.) Last year the Los Angeles Dodges took the cake with their over dramatic season, bloated contracts, annoying fans and Yasiel Puig, but have redeemed themselves this year with a more tame season and the feel good story of having super-nice guy, Clayton Kershaw arguably have the best pitching season of all time. This year the St. Louis Cardinals dethroned the Dodgers, possibly because of their recent success in showing up in October. No one likes a winner. The Journal notes, “The NL Central champs scored a 12.7 on more »

  • Should The Word ‘Redskins’ Be Banned from Broadcast TV? [Poll]

    There are plenty of sports teams with less overtly offensive names, if not more offensive traditions, that are flying under the radar as the Redskins take all the public scrutiny for their absurd team name. 80,000 people in Kansas City simultaneously doing the Chop and Chant (oooooh oooooh OH OH Oh ooooooooh ooooh oooooooooh). Several sports teams across America beating oversized war drums. It’s all kind of insane when you think about it. But where can we find a solution when billions of dollars and decades of tradition and well tuned branding are on the line? It looks like the government might end up making the decision for the NFL as Variety reports: FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said that the agency is considering a petition to issue sanctions against broadcast stations that use the term “Redskins” when referring to Washington D.C.’s professional football team. In comments to reporters, Wheeler said that the FCC “will be looking at that petition, we will be dealing with that issue on the merits and we’ll be responding accordingly.” But he personally believes that the term is “offensive and derogatory,” according to an interview he gave earlier this month to Broadcasting & Cable.

  • Iconic Concert: AC/DC Live at River Plate 2009

    In December 2009 AC/DC performed three nights in Buenos Aires, Argentina to a crowd who’s seismic activity could be felt hundreds of miles away. Just look at the 110,000+ people jumping in unison to Hells Bells, it’s almost mesmerizing. In recent years AC/DC has been lauded by critics for sounded better during live performances than they did earlier in their career and after watching the video we agree, which means they could be rocking crowds like this for another decade.

  • Things Got A Little Weird At Dos Equis’ Masquerade Party [Photos]

    Dos Equis threw a Masquerade party at Norwood Club in New York City. Good music, good friends and plenty of surprises. Someone brought a camera to the party so now we get to see how it all went down because I certainly don’t remember. Dos Equis brought me up to the roof of the Norwood Club, slapped on a blind fold and told me I was going to sample a few exotic foods. Here I am a little hesitant but ready to go. To be honest, I thought the blindfold was all hype. No way did I think they would make me eat something out of my comfort zone. It would probably be a platter from Meatball shop. But nope…. Fish liver and ostrich. For anyone who knows me this is so far out of my comfort zone but with a blind fold (and having no idea what it was) I unsuspectingly ate the whole thing and it wasn’t turrible. Our friend Cass from Guyism is about to get married so they decided to give him an impromptu bachelor party! NERD – “Lap Dance” Plenty of Dos Equis to go around What good is a Masquerade party without limbo? Amiright?

  • You Can Now Live Stream Weezer’s New Album For Free on iTunes

    One week ahead of it’s set release date, Weezer has begun streaming their newest studio project Everything Will Be Alright in the End on iTunes First Look. This will be Weezer’s 9th Studio album following Hurley, which only sold 175,000 albums worldwide. Though the declining numbers shouldn’t reflect their fan base or demand for their music, being that tickets for their October 27th show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom show are averaging $230. On the subject of an album name, Frontman, Rivers Cuomo recently told Rolling Stone “”On the surface, the name is optimistic,” frontman Rivers Cuomo recently told Rolling Stone of the potentially ominous album title. “But you’re not 100 percent sure how sincerely to take that. Those last three words can’t help but remind a sensitive reader of the end of themselves, of Weezer, of the world.” He went on to muse, “Part of me feels like, ‘Wow, this is bleak.’ But another part is like, ‘You can’t get rid of us that easily.’”

  • You Don’t Need 8 Glasses Of Water A Day [Link]

    For years we’ve all been told that we should drink 8 glasses of water a day. This has led to everyone carrying around water bottles that they refill multiple times a day in an effort to maintain their health. But is it necessary? Does drinking so much water do anything besides leading to more bathroom breaks? And where did that magical number 8 even come from?

  • 15 Eye-Opening HQ Photos Show The Disappearing Aral Sea

    Originally formed where the Syr Darya and Amu Darya rivers joined between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, the Aral Sea was once one of the four largest lakes in the world. But beginning in the 1960s, Soviet irrigation projects diverted the flow of the rivers and the Aral Sea began its decline. By 2007, the sea was just 10% of its original size and had split into four lakes—the North Aral Sea, the eastern and western basins of the South Aral Sea, and a smaller lake in between the North and South. A dam project was completed in 2005 in an effort to save the North Aral Sea. However, these photos of the last 15 years illustrate how little is left of the once great sea and why the disappearance of the Aral Sea is known as “one of the planet’s worst environmental disasters.”

  • 100 Side by Side Comparisons of Biopic Actors and The People They Portrayed

    Recently we stumbled upon one of the most interesting Reddit threads we’ve seen in a while. The idea was basic, a visual comparison of actors in bio-pics against their real life influences, but after visualizing a few of these side-by-side photos, you can’t help but stare awestruck at the parallels these actors have with the figures they’re portraying. While you can give credit to the actors after actually watching and judging their performances, you have to give it up to the hair and make-up teams that transformed these actors. We pulled together some of the best examples and also created several dozen of our own originals as well.

  • You Won’t Believe This Man Is CGI [Video]

    In the fields of robotics and 3D animation there exists a belief in an uncanny valley where human movement is replicated almost perfectly, but the slight difference causes revulsion in the viewer. It’s the reason why so many people found the 3D animated films “Beowulf” and “The Polar Express” so creepy and something that animators keep in mind when creating their characters. But by the looks of this video, Australian animator Chris Jones has absolutely nothing to worry about. The man in this video looks and moves so realistically, you’re brain will never even entertain the thought that he’s completely computer generated. We’ve certainly come a long way from the blocky Max Headroom characters of the 80s! Check out more videos of the process involved in making such a detailed short and see other projects at Chris Jones’s website.

  • These Dogs Are Surprisingly Good Surfers [23 Photos]

    Last weekend, Huntington Beach, California hosted the sixth annual Surf City Surf Dog competition. Billed as “three days of doggone fun,” the event features a costume contest, dog adoptions, and, best of all, a surfing competition where the dogs are strapped to boards and do their best to ride the waves. There are four weight-class divisions and even a tandem event, where their owners join in on the fun. The dogs are judged on how long they’re able to stay on the board and how confident they appear. By the looks of it, some of them seem to know what they’re doing more than we would. For more info, check out Surf City Surf Dog.

  • Hilarious NYC Taxi Driver Calendar Features Beefcake Drivers in Sultry Positions

    If New York’s Bravest releases their own calendar every year, why can’t New York’s toughest? The yellow cab drivers of NYC work endless, thankless days 365 days a year. they’re the battery that keeps going and going, and let’s be honest, if they stopped doing their job the city would shut down.

The drivers are shown in a playful mix of work and leisure, including a playdate with nine adorable puppies from Animal Haven shelter in Manhattan and some sensuous cookie consumption at New York’s favorite bakery, Levain.” A portion of each calendar’s sale will go to University Settlement, a nonprofit social service agency in the Lower East Side that helps over 30,000 immigrants and workers every year. The calendar is now available to purchase online, here.

  • Your Favorite Classic Music Videos Are Retroactively Getting Product Placement

    Since their inception, the main purpose of music videos was to promote the artist. They were advertisements for the record first and foremost, but they also offered artists the chance to express themselves in a visual manner not possible with a CD. They may have been ads in that sense, but they still had artistic value of their own as a visual medium. But now, the line between music video and advertising will be blurred much more, and change will apply to videos that have already existed for years. Universal Music Group has entered into a three-way partnership with in-video advertising technology company MirriAd and ad agency Havas. Music videos from UMG’s huge stable of superstars will now feature advertisements of Havas clients via MirriAd’s software that transforms bare walls and other surfaces in the background of the videos into billboards. The technology has already been used in Aviici’s video for “You Make Me.” Using MirriAd, Havas was able to insert advertisements for their client Grand Marnier. You can see the post-production product placement in the before and after shots below. As giant record companies find themselves more and more irrelevant in their traditional roles of production, promotion, and distribution more »
