  • 22 Frightening Behind-The-Scenes Photos From The Set Of “The Exorcist”

    “The Exorcist,” released in 1973, is consistently voted one of the scariest movies of all time. Contemporary audiences may not find it as entertaining as “Ouija” or “Paranormal Activity 14,” but that’s just because they’re morons. “The Exorcist” is an incredible film that doesn’t really on any computer generated effects. Because there was no such thing at the time. And we’re thankful for that, because that means the producers had to rely on the incredible make-up skills of Dick Smith. Dick Smith’s career began in the 1960s, but it was when he transformed Dustin Hoffman into a 121-year-old man in “Little Big Man” that audiences first got a look at his immense talent. He then aged Marlon Brando for his role as Vito Corleone in “The Godfather” and “The Exorcist” followed a year later. In 1985, Smith won an Oscar for his work on “Amadeus,” transforming F Murray Abraham into the aged Salieri. Smith died earlier this year at the age of 91, leaving behind an incredible body of work. These photos and captions come from his website, Dick Smith Make-up, where you can find more great work from Hollywood’s Godfather of make-up.

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

    The idea for this story is 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.

  • Can Pete Davidson Become ‘SNL’s New Franchise Player?

    You might have already started hearing the buzz for SNL’s newest featured cast member, Pete Davidson might just be the face of a new breed of cast members looking for an identity. With the mass exodus of season 38 (Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudakis, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen and Seth Meyers) the new young faces of SNL had some trouble finding their way last season with young veterans Taren Killem and Keenan Thompson being thrown in the ring as the stars of the show. Though the two could hold their own, the show was looking for a rising star viewers could get excited for. That may just be Pete Davidson, a 20-year old, Staten Island native who’s been making waves on the stand-up circuit since he was 16. Davidson was featured in a few skits that showed glimmers of a young Andy Samberg, but then absolutely crushed it with his already infamous Weekend Update bit alongside Update Hosts, former Daily Show correspondent, Micheal Che and another Staten Island native and head writer, Colin Jost. Davidson has immediate charisma, a trait that the new cast members from last season were lacking. Combine that with female franchise player, Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong, more »

  • 28 GIFS That Perfectly Describe a Morning in a Manhattan Starbucks

    If you’re like me, your first thought is something along the lines of:  And your second thought is: I need it now. Why is this? Well because the only way you’ve gotten through life/education/anything up to this point is with the help of caffeine. And it’s no longer socially acceptable to drink Mountain Dew mixed with Red Bull so… Here we are. Madly addicted to caffeine. And by caffeine I mean coffee. And by coffee I mean Starbucks. Sweet, sweet Starbucks. Oh yeah. I’d sell my soul for the stuff. Perhaps by agreeing to pay boatloads of money for a cup of Joe I already have… Oh well! I don’t question it. Rather I ask, myself: Of course I do. Coffee is delicious. It was love at first sip. Of course I could always be cost-effective and make a pot of the stuff myself. But what am I? A scientist? I can’t make that stuff. Ok so I can. I just can’t make it taste magical, like Starbucks can. Seriously. What do they put in there? Fairy dust? Unicorn tears? Maybe it’s just heaps of sugar. Or maybe it’s science. I vote for science. But really They could put anything in there. more »

  • 50 Animals Taking Perfect Selfies [Photos]

  • These OG Life Hacks Were The Difference Between Life and Death… And Made By a Cigarette Company

    Life Hacks have been around for generations, but before they were called life hacks, I’m sure they were just called “Tips to Avoid Death”. Around 100 years ago Gallaher’s brand cigarettes would insert cards with helpful tips illustrated on them in every pack. So essentially Gallaher would put these life saving tips on every pack of cigarettes, while slowly killing you from the inside. Isn’t it ironic. Don’t you think? 1. How To Extract A Splinter “Fill a wide mouthed bottle with hot water nearly to the brim, and press affected part of hand tightly against mouth of bottle. The suction will pull down the flesh, and steam will soon draw out the splinter.” 2. How To Fell A Tree “Have decided which side you wish the tree to fall, cut alternatively a downward and inward cut as shown. When about half through, proceed to cut the other side a few inches higher, and finally pull tree down by means of ropes.”   3. Keeping Plants Watered While Away “Fill a large pail with water, and stand it a little above the level of the plants and group round or near as many plants as practical. Loosely plait two or more »

  • Ranking The Most Powerful Militaries on Earth Based Off Their Firepower [Infographic]

    There’s only one true way to compare military strength, and thankfully we haven’t had the opportunity to compare powerful countries in recent decades  — though with a powder keg in the South China Sea, standoffs in Ukraine, and proxy wars throughout the Middle East, we are alarmingly close. For a simpler evaluation of military power, we turn to the Global Firepower Index, a ranking of 106 nations based on more than 50 factors including overall military budget, available manpower, and the amount of equipment each country has in its respective arsenal, as well as access to resources.

They want to get up and like… Go for a run or something. For everyone not on crazy pills, this is what 6am is like for a non-morning person. 1. Be asleep. Hear something that sounds suspiciously like your alarm Somewhere in the depths your half-conscious brain a voice feebly cries, “no…” 2. Sit up slowly, as if you’ve never been so rudely awoken before in your life Everything is awful. 3. Make it stop. Or as some people like to say “hit snooze” 4. Snuggle back into bed, search for the exact position you were just in Just like…five more minutes… 5. There’s that alarm again. Hit snooze.

  • That Time We Drove An All Electric Harley-Davidson Through The Streets Of Manhattan… [Photos]

    A few weeks back Harley-Davidson stormed into NYC with their new Project LiveWire bike we’ve been telling you so much about. Since we’re such huge fans of the brand we got the opportunity to be one of the first in America to actually test drive the bike on the streets of Manhattan. Our lasting impression, beyond the fact that it rides similarly to a traditional Harley-Davidson minus the growl, is the fact that it has effortless, white-knuckle pick me up that will take you from stoplight to cruising in a matter of seconds. A very impressive trait you won’t find in any other all-electric, street-legal vehicles on the road today. If you have interest in Harley-Davidson we certainly encourage you to visit projectlivewire.com to follow the Project LiveWire tour and learn more about testing the bike at your local stop. We’re working on getting pictures of our test drive around Manhattan and the event, where we sipped cocktails and mingled with Harley-Davidson executives, so keep following us on @RSVLTS for more.

  • A Car-Juggling Robot Is The Future Of Entertainment

    Did you ever go to a monster truck show as a kid and see those transformer-type cars that would destroy the other vehicles? Sure, it was incredible back then, but these days with the Playstations and Interwebs, the kids just aren’t interested in our dated ways of car disposal entertainment. What will win the young ‘uns over? How about a 70-foot-tall robot that will juggle cars? Okay. Former NASA engineer and inventor Dan Granett is currently raising $2.3 million for his BugJuggler. Powered by a diesel engine, the robot would be controlled by an operator using a haptic interface wherein the operator’s arm movements would control how the BugJuggler moved. Granett is hoping the project will attract corporate sponsors like Red Bull who will hold huge events with the robot. We hope so, too. Learn all about the robot in the video below then keep up with the project at BugJuggler.
