• This Gaudy Mansion Is Fit For An ’80s Drug Lord [26 Photos]

    If you’ve made your millions selling cocaine to guys who wear white sport coats over pastel shirts and whose faces have permanent five o’clock shadow, you may be an 80s drug kingpin. And you need a ostentatious mansion that’s as big as your personality. The subtle, minimalist aesthetic of the 21st century just won’t cut it. Good thing this mansion, which looks like a place Robert Downey Jr.’s character in “Less Than Zero” would frequent, is for sale for the low price of just $1.995 million—that’s just 100 kilos! The 6-bedroom home, located in Glenndale’s College Hills neighborhood in California, features 4 bathrooms that look straight out of a VHS porno your dad hid in the back of his closet in 1984 and watches once a year when your mom goes out of town with her sister (pay no mind to this oddly specific scenario). There’s also plenty of crystal chandeliers, a sauna, and a swimming pool, a statue and a kitchen with more wood paneling than your grandparent’s South Florida mobile home. For more information on this disturbingly irresistible mansion, check out the listing at Redfin.

  • If You Strap a GoPro to a Bird of Prey, We’ll Watch It

    Anything I’m doing immediately becomes secondary when someone in the office says “Hey did you see that new video of a hawk with a GoPro attached to it flying through the air?” Sold. In. How much? I want to see it right now. If I happen to be holding a baby when I hear that, I’m dropping said baby and running to the nearest desktop (preferably with a retna display) and ogling for what seems like an eternity at a first person perspective of an enormous bird soar through the air, most likely hunting for an animal to eat. In their latest bird x GoPro collab, the HD camera company features a video with David De Vleeschauwer and Debbie Pappyn as they travel to Mongolia to capture the point of view of a golden eagle as he soars over the Altai Mountains.

  • These Chalk Drawings Are Hiding In Plain Sight [30 Photos]

    Street art often has a reputation of conveying powerful political, anti-establishment messages. But not all street art has to be deep and though-provoking. Equally important is art that simply entertains and enhances a community, such as the work of David Zinn. Zinn’s street art has been delighting people in Ann Arbor, Michigan since 2001. His work is temporary, composed of just chalk, charcoal, and found materials. Often his characters, a menagerie of animals and monsters, interact with the objects or cracks in the sidewalks and walls on which they appear. Some of our favorites are in the gallery, but you can see much more at Zinn Art and keep up with his most current work on Facebook.
