  • This Karaoke Montage Of “Don’t Stop Believin'” Will Ruin The Song Forever

    We recently learned that Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” has received more “thumbs up” votes on Pandora than any other song. Over 20 million people have given the track positive votes, despite the fact that “Any Way You Want It” is the band’s best song. Who are all these people that love it so much? If this video is any indication, the song’s fanbase is made up entirely of bad karaoke singers from the Seattle area. Welp, time to go smash my copy of Escape.

  • 5 Facts You Should Know About the $2.8M Ferrari FXX K Hypercar

    In case you’re unfamiliar, the Ferrari FXX-K is a high performance race car and prototype built by automobile manufacturer Ferrari in Maranello, Italy and designed by architect Flavio Manzoni director of Centro Stile Ferrari, not street legal. You could say they took the restrictor plate off this red dragon. It’s roughly $2.8 Million and ownership lasts 2 years, before you need to re-up. Ferrari hasn’t set a price to re-up… Because they don’t need to.

  • Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Swimsuit Photos Have Us Pining For Summer

    We’re bracing ourselves for some afternoon snow here at RSVLTS HQ while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is torturing us with a photoshoot featuring some very skimpy swimsuits. The British actress and supermodel made the cover of Esquire UK’s April issue, which also contains an interview and photos from the shoot.

  • Tommy Boy’s Hilarious Gag Reel On The 20th Anniversey of It’s Release

    Chris Farley in Tommy Boy is renowned as one of the most iconic comedic roles of all time. If you disagree you’re an idiot, plain and simple. His presence as an on screen big man has still yet to be over shadowed. Although Farley’s time came too soon, the few movies he managed to accomplish in his career will go down as some of the funniest roles in the history of cinema. The performance that made him a household was undoubtedly Tommy Boy, where he stars alongside co-star and friend David Spade. The gag-reel shown below really gives an insight to what kind of a guy and on set character he really was.

  • A Timeline Of Jared Leto’s Hair Over The Last 20 Years [31 Photos]

    The world first became aware of Jared Leto in 1994 when he became the object of desire for every 90s girl as Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life. His signature long hair was as short-lived as the series, with both disappearing in 1995. But over the years, he has grown out his hair, spiked it up, bleached it, and just about everything else you can think of. Most recently, he sported a beard and long ponytail but yesterday he again broke hearts worldwide when he shaved his face and chopped off his hair. You know, Brian Krakow would never do such a cold-hearted thing… Anywho, let’s take a look at Jared Leto’s coifs over the last two decades and in the process realize that he never actually ages. Also, as someone considerably younger who fears that their hair won’t grow back with each haircut, I can honestly say I hate him.

  • If House of Cards Were a Whimsical Sitcom

    House of Cards much anticipated Season 3 was recently released on the hungry pit of binge watchers on Netflix and is already getting rave reviews, but what if Frank Underwood was the center piece of a sitcom? YouTuber TalkFine created a jingle to go along with a House of Cards supercut that acts as an intro for a whimsical sitcom. And now it’s stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

  • Geico Just Tricked Us Into Watching An Entire Commercial

    Does anybody really watch commercials these days? Thanks to DVR we can escape them on TV and most Internet ads can be skipped after a few seconds. Geico realizes this, which is why they made this ten-second commercial that has already said everything it needs to before you can skip it while waiting for a YouTube video of a monkey pleasuring himself with a frog. But if you don’t immediately skip it, it keeps going. And it’s entertaining. And we just got tricked into watching an entire commercial. Hmm…I suddenly have the urge to change my car insurance. And eat spaghetti.

  • How Tinder Gets Away With Charging People Over 30 Twice as Much

    How Can Tinder Charge Thirtysomethings So Much? Bloomberg Has The Answers Tinder is asking its users for a more committed relationship, but age is a factor. The dating app began charging for premium features on Monday, and as thirtysomethings learned, they’ll have to pony up twice as much as their younger counterparts. Americans under 30 will be charged $9.99 a month to subscribe to Tinder Plus, the new, paid version of the app that offers unlimited “likes”—which once were free—as well as features that let users undo swipes and connect with people in different locations. Members aged 30 and older must pay $19.99 for the same features. In the U.K., the age-based price disparity is even wider. Those under 28 will pay £3.99 ($6) for the service, while anyone older will be charged £14.99 ($23), almost four times the price. Tinder says it spent several months researching different price points around the world before it introduced the service. “Lots of products offer differentiated price tiers by age, like Spotify does for students, for example,” Rosette Pambakian, a spokeswoman for Tinder, wrote in an e-mail. “Tinder is no different; during our testing we’ve learned, not surprisingly, that younger users are just more »

  • Shaqs Funniest Moments in GIF Form For his Birthday Week

    This week is Shaquille Rashaun O’Neal’s 42nd birthday and as one of the best and most beloved athletes of all time, we thought we’d bring to you his absolute funniest moments from his career. Shaq had always been known to have fun on and off the court, missing three-point attempts at All-Star games, missing free throws during regular season games and even bringing down the rim. Coaches would actually foul Shaq on purpose because he was so bad at free throws, it would more than likely be a rebounded attempt for the ball, they’d call it the “Hack-a-Shaq” and once Greg Popovitch even tried it 5 seconds after tip off.

  • Makeup Artist Transforms Regular People Into Comic Book Superheroes

    25-year-old Calgary-based makeup artist Lianne Moseley spends her days making brides and models beautiful in a traditional sense, but it’s in her spare time that Lianne’s true talent shows through. An avid comic book and cartoon fan since childhood, Lianne has mastered the art of cel shading to give the illusion that her real life, three-dimensional models are flat comic book or cartoon characters. Using bold outlines and a limited color gradient, Lianne is able to erase any trace of depth from her models. And with such a unique talent, Lianne is finding herself a star on the Calgary cosplay circuit. For more of her work, check out Facebook and Instagram.

  • COUNTING CALORIES IN 50 POPULAR BEERS [Infographic]

    Looking to lose weight? Well if you eat food AND drink beer, you might have some trouble unless you introduce exercise (gasp!) into your daily routine. Apparently beers, even those advertised as being low calorie, are calorically dense. And interestingly enough, Michelob Ultra and Natural Light both seem to be your best bet when it comes to ABV and calories. It just depends on what stigma you’d rather have applied to you. I’ll just keep drinking high-calorie stouts and porters and do a few jumping jacks between pints.

  • NYC is Vanishing, Here Are Aerial Photos of a Gutted Roseland Ballroom to Prove it

    Roseland Ballroom is in the process of a very slow death. It’s roof has been torn down, the stage where thousands of the worlds best performers has been ripped apart and with it a small piece of New York City’s history. An Instagram photo taken from above shows the West 52nd street landmark dismantled Roseland had been around since the 1950s, but the building itself had been around since the 1920s—at one time it housed a rollerskating rink. Vanishing NY has been keeping a close eye on the demo project. Is that Noah's Ark? Nope, just what's left of Roseland. A photo posted by Jake Weinstein (@jakeweinstein1) on Mar 1, 2015 at 2:31pm PST

  • So What If Superheroes Had Average American Body Types? [Photos]

    When it comes to accurate depictions of the human body, comic book heroes are hardly realistic. Whether they’re sprouting blades from their hands or surviving decades in a deep freeze, these characters regularly push the limits of what’s considered possible. But they also depart from realistic human anatomy in a more mundane sense: Almost none of them reflect the typical physique of most Americans. Today, 33.7% of men and 36.5% of women in the U.S. are considered obese, and more than two-thirds are overweight. 1. Weight gain has put millions of people at risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other preventable conditions. 2 Meanwhile, comic books depict vastly different figures: men with massive biceps and shoulders and women with toned abs and tiny waists. So what would they look like if they reflected more typical body shapes and sizes? We’ve Photoshopped several major comic book characters – not to touch them up, but to make the average hero look more like the average American. — Use the slider to switch between the superhero in the comic book form vs the superhero in realistic form — Batman vs Realistic Batman — Iron Man vs Realistic Iron Man — Black Widow vs more »

  • This Frog Burger Is A Bun Full Of Nope

    Japan, the nation that infamously tricked the rest of the planet into eating uncooked fish, is at it again! Sega and the Sunshine Aquarium have teamed up to bring the Deadly Poison Exhibition to the Orbi Yokohama nature museum. The exhibit features 25 poisonous animals, such as frogs, from all around the world. And after viewing the dangerous creatures, you can head on over to the museum cafe where, for just 1,000 yen ($8.34), you can enjoy a frog burger. Whereas most oddball burgers at least grind up the bizarre meat so you don’t know what you’re eating, this frog burger is just battered and fried frog legs. Oh, and for extra weirdness, the bun is black. There’s no way Japan will trick us into eating this. Well, not until it shows up at a hip New York restaurant for at least twice the price…

  • NFL Team Logos Get The Minimalist Treatment

    Nothing goes better with the sleek simplicity of Ikea furniture than the bold colors and simple geometric shapes of minimalist art. But if you also want to show your support of your favorite NFL team, your bound to lose your simplistic aesthetic.

This collection, entitled “Touchdown,” features minimalist representations of all 32 teams using their iconic colors and clever representations of their names. Check out the collection then order prints of your favorites from Art of Sport.

  • Here She Is, The Beautiful and Smart Samsung Galaxy S6

    At first glance it looks like an S5, at second glance a competitor, but one thing’s for sure. The Galaxy S6 is stunning. Samsung’s recent S6 and S6 Edge took a page out of their Galaxy Alpha phone when designing the 6th generation flagship phone, it’s design is clean and simple, feels great and looks even better. As speculated, the S6 Edge is the phone that really sticks out a curved glass screen makes gripping and thumb-navigation much easier on it’s 5.1’’ display similar to the Note Edge, the Quad HD(2560×1440) 577ppi resolution doesn’t hurt either. The S6 has always been known for a wonderful display and guts behind the glass, but for the first time Samsung’s hardware might feel just as valuable. Ditching plastic and faux leather for glass and metal give the phone the substance it’s been lagging. The new glass is called Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and will be available in an array of colors, including White Pearl, Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Blue Topaz and Green Emerald, which supposedly change with natural light. While these features are a step in the right direction to acquire a new consumer base, Samsung’s longtime loyal customers might not see eye to eye more »

  • Ferrofluid Makes Lava Lamps Cool Again

    For a brief period in the 90s, easy access to designer drugs and the ubiquity of Spencer Gifts resulted in many of us purchasing lava lamps. After a few hours of watching melted balls of wax float around, the drugs wore off and we regretted ever buying the stupid things. But thanks to ferrofluid, the atomic age novelty may have a new lease on life. Inventor Kyle Haines believes that the strongly magnetized liquids known as ferrofluids can revive the lava lamp in the 21st century in a device he calls The Inspiration. Much like a traditional wax lava lamp, the blobs of ferrofluid in The Inspiration float up and down in response to heat from an incandescent light bulb. The difference comes in the magnetic properties of the ferrofluid. In the presence of neodymium magnets, the ferrofluid reacts and forms spiky shapes that zip around the lamp. Kyle is hoping to finance The Inspiration with a Kickstarter campaign. A pledge of $149 gets you a 450mL lamp with 15mL of ferrofluid inside along with a couple magnets. At that rate, he should have no problem surpassing his $7000 goal. Let’s just hope he can get them into every remaining more »

  • Believe It Or Not: These Images Are Absolutely Not Photoshopped

    Jee Young Lee creates highly elaborate scenes that require an incredible amount of patience and absolutely no photo manipulation. For weeks and sometimes months, the young Korean artist works in the confines of her small studio bringing to life worlds that defy all logic. In the middle of the sets you can always find the artist herself, as these are self-portraits but of the unconventional kind. Inspired by either her personal life or old Korean fables, they each have their own backstory, which of course, only adds to the intense drama. Via imgur

  • Bob Dylan Salutes Film Noir With New Music Video

    Bob Dylan will never be a crooner. Over the years, he lost his already limited ability to hit high notes and now you just want to smack him on the back to help him cough up whatever he’s fighting in his throat. Indeed, Dylan is a far cry from the velvety smoothness of Frank Sinatra. But that doesn’t keep him from trying. Last month Dylan recorded an album of songs made famous by Sinatra entitled Shadows in the Night. The album was recorded live, just like they did things 60 years ago, with a small, five-piece band. Now Dylan has released a music video for “The Night We Called It a Day” that pays homage to the film noir classics of the era. Starring Dylan and Robert Davi, best known as pock-marked villain Jake Fratelli in The Goonies, the video is beautifully shot and an excellent reminder of how music videos are capable of being artistic shorts in their own right. And the music, a sparse arrangement of upright bass, acoustic guitar, and haunting horns that sounds like a track off of Tom Waits’ Swordfishtrombones, is the perfect pairing for the visuals.

  • This Guy Pretended To Be An Oscar Winner And Reaped All The Benefits [Video]

    Looking to score a bunch of free stuff and receive VIP treatment everywhere you go in Los Angeles? No problem! All you have to do is spend years working your ass off in Hollywood and, with a ton of luck, you will one day win an award that lets others know you are their better. Or you can save yourself a lot of time and just pretend to win such an award. Mark David Christenson pretended to win an Oscar for The Imitation Game (get it?) and carried a fake statuette around on award night. He came away with access to all sorts of parties, free Gatorade and condoms from starstruck convenience store clerks, and, most important of all, empanadas.

  • 13 Things We Know About Mumford & Sons New Album and Tour Dates

  • The History Of The NYC Subway System In One Animated GIF

    For over 100 years, people have been traveling beneath New York City at all hours of the day, from the easternmost most parts of Queens to the tip of the Bronx. No, I’m not talking about those subterranean crustacean ne’er-do-well crab people, but the NYC subway system. The first underground line opened up in 1904 and in 1940 the multiple independent lines were united when the municipal government took control of the entire system. And the subwy continues to grow, with the Second Avenue Line currently under construction. It’s just too bad this excellent map from Appealing Industries didn’t include the marvel that is the PATH train, which has been transporting folks from New Jersey to New York underneath the Hudson River since 1907.

  • This Design Competition For a Bicycle Bridge in London Brought out Amazing Entries

    The Wandsworth Council in London recently held a design competition for a planned pedestrian/ bicycle bridge that will span the Thames river between Nine Elms and Pimlico. So far the competition has attracted 87 design proposals, many of which will forever be designs at best, but bring out the best elements of imagination. While the designs are amitious to say the least a true winning team will be selected in July. Why can’t a bridge be made out of 3 giant trampolines?

  • Michael Jordan’s 23 Greatest GIFS Because He Joined Forbes Billionaires List For The First Time

    A record 290 newcomers joined the Forbes billionaires list in the last year as world markets defied international turmoil. While wars, diseases and currency crises made headlines, tycoons from every continent but Antarctica managed to mint new 10-figure fortunes. The most famous rookie on the billionaires list? Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player of all time and indisputably the best-paid athlete of all time. Most of his cash comes from Nike payouts on his iconic brand. The Jordan brand grossed an estimated $2.25 billion in 2013, earning his Airness some $90 million. But his most valuable asset is his stake in the Charlotte Hornets, worth more than $500 million. When ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer bought the Los Angeles Clippers for a stunning $2 billion, values of all NBA teams skyrocketed, creating three new billionaires. Jordan’s old boss Jerry Reinsdorf, owner of the Chicago Bulls, joined the list with a fortune of $1.3 billion, and Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander boosted his net worth to $1.6 billion. Give the GIFS a quick moment to load, it’s worth the wait.

  • Key West: 25 Stunning Photos Of America’s Hottest Destination for 2015

    Arguably no other destination in America exudes the exotic, off-the-grid allure of Key West in the Florida Keys. Since its discovery in 1513 by Ponce de León, who claimed the island, along with the rest of Florida, for Spain, it’s been revered for its wildly independent spirit, devil-may-care vibe, and spectacularly storied history. For a period in the mid-19th century the so-called Conch Republic was the richest city per capita in the United States, thanks to a brisk salvaging business done by savvy local entrepreneurs who plundered the cargo ships that regularly foundered on the treacherous reefs just a few miles from Key West’s shores. Cigar-making was a hot ticket for a time in the late 19th century, and in the 1920s, Prohibition gave rise to another cottage industry in Key West and the surrounding keys, as enterprising locals smuggled contraband beer and rum from Cuba and whiskey and scotch from the British Isles via Nassau. Marijuana smuggling in the 1960s through the early 1980s also made many Key West residents rich (and sent many others to jail). These days, Key West’s various stints as a carefree capital of vice form the foundation of a booming tourism business that’s the more »
