    A construction got stuck in an apartment fire in Washington Heights in New York City and nobody seemed able to help him.

Seeing all the smoke blow out just as the rescue occurs shows how incredibly fortunate the timing was.

  • Kevin Spacey’s Spot On Hollywood Impersonations [7 Videos]

    With roles in such critically acclaimed films as American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, and L.A. Confidential, Kevin Spacey has shown that he is one of the greatest actors of our time.

Do you think he shared his Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino impersonations with them when they all starred together in Glengarry Glen Ross? 

  • Banksy Posts video of ‘Rebel Rocket Attack’ on Dumbo

    On Banksy’s sisxth day in NYC, he refused to post a piece on his month long NYC tear. Instead, he posted a video to his YouTube page of a man with a rocket shooting down Dumbo. Could this be a hint of whats to come to DUMBO, BK? Either way Banksy’s work has been gaining a lot of steam, not for his work, but for the defacing of the defacer. Banksy’s latest NYC works have all been mauled by graffiti artists looking to hop on his coat tails.

A New York City coffee shop was rigged to portray a girl with extreme telekinetic powers and the terrified reactions of unsuspecting customers were caught on video. It must have been tough to come up with a situation that’s even freaky to jaded New Yorkers.

  • New Benjamin: The $100 is Getting Some Work Done

    With Government being shut down, good ol’ Benjamin Franklin decided to have some work done. The Federal Reserve will begin circulating a new $100 bill Tuesday after a two-and-a-half-year delay. The Fed is technically fiscally independent, so it doesn’t need any approval from congress thus unaffected by the shutdown. The original date for release was February, 2011, but had some delays after the Federal Reserve noticed some some security flaws that caused the note to crease during printing. The AP made a visit to the Fed to get a first glimpse at the Benjamins. Is it me or does Benjamin look like he’s smirking a bit more these days?

  • R. Kelly’s Delicious New Single “Cookie”

    The ever classy, old-fashioned romantic R. Kelly released a new track off his upcoming album, Black Panties. The song, Cookie, is a delightful ode to love-making, wherein Mr. Kelly characterizes himself as a cookie monster who wants nothing more than to lick, bite, and get inside his special lady’s cookie. I sincerely hope that Sesame Street invites him to perform the song as a duet with Cookie Monster, although they might need to tweak the lyrics a tad.

  • A Look Inside Mark Wahlberg’s Beverly Hills Bachelor Pad (16 Photos)

    Mark Wahlberg recently sold his Beverly Hills Mansion for $12.995 million. What does almost $13 million buy you these days? Apparently an 11,500 square foot estate on 1.7 acres. The house has 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, and a theater complete with a 35mm digital projector. There’s also a 2500 square foot gym with a boxing ring, a pool with a grotto and a waterfall, a putting green, and even a full basketball court with stadium lighting, something Larry Bird forgot in his Florida mansion. I hope Mr. Wahlberg was kind enough to leave the new owner a copy of The Awakening so they can watch him talk to trees whenever they want (often, no doubt) in their personal movie theater.

  • The Smiths Lyrics Meet The Peanuts Gang

    The Smiths lead singer and songwriter Morrissey was known to write some of the most depressing songs of the 80s. This Charming Charlie is a Tumblr blog that takes his bleak lyrics and places them in the dialogue balloons in Peanuts cartoons. Amazingly enough, they still make sense coming out of the mouths of Lucy and Charlie Brown. Universal had the site taken down, but has since dropped their lawsuit. Now it’s back and Morrissey himself has recently expressed delight over the mashup. Here are some of our favorites from the page.

  • New Fruit Of The Loom Commercial: Panty Stunt (Video)

    Martial artist and stunt woman Mickey Facchinello is featured in Fruit of the Loom’s new commercial, performing all sorts of badassery in her underwear. Personally, I wouldn’t mind if Hollywood asked her to star in a whole series of action features as a scantily clad ninja.

  • Samsung Gear Commercial Evokes It’s Inspiration

The spot features devices from The Jetsons, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Knight Rider, Predator and Star Trek followed by a 360-degree look at the Gear with a tagline that reads “it’s finally real.”

  • The 2013 Giants: As Bad as the 2008 Lions?

    To truly grasp how bad the Giants have been, a look at the worst team in recent memory is necessary: the 2008 Detroit Lions. Finishing the season 0-16, the Lions—obviously—also started the season at a mark of 0-5. Through the Lions’ first five games of 2008, the defense allowed 159 points—31.8 points per game. In contrast, the Lions scored only 76 points in their first five games—15.2 points per game and less than half of their total allowed points. Moreover, the average margin by which they lost games was about 25 points. Enter the comparison toward which Big Blue fans might cringe: the Giants—offensively abysmal—have scored 82 points during their first five games. Of course, this total is just 6 more than the 2008 Detroit Lions’ total. Moreover, the Giants’ “vaunted” pass rush-fueled defense has allowed 182 points during their first five games—a total that is 23 greater than the 2008 Lions. Moreover, the Giants have lost games by an average margin of 20 points—less than four points fewer than the 2008 Lions. In summation, there is disappointing and then there is historically bad. And, thus far, the Giants poor numbers—both offensively and defensively—have been eerily consistent with a team more »

  • Adidas Samba + Blauvelt Snowboarding Boots

    Adidas has officially kicked their winter sports campaign into full gear, developing their first lineup of snowboard boots. Basing their boots off their classic footwear styles, adidas created a familiar style boot from their Samba line. First introduced to the world in 1950 as an indoor football shoe, the Samba’s iconic design quickly became a staple from the pitch to the streets. The Samba shoe lineage is traced back to their roots as a indoor soccer shoe and one of the most iconic sneakers of all time, also used by a large percentage of skateboarders. Only appropriate to take the model that made adidas a household name for the inaugural Snowboard boot. Adidas is also unveiling the first pro-model for Jake Blauvelt, which is their first signature line, a modified version of the boot.  adidas Snowboarding

  • RSVLTS Exclusive Preview of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

    There has been much publicity made about “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag”. And, recently, RSVLTS got a chance to get an exclusive hands-on look at the upcoming title. Demoing the Playstation 4 version of the game was Jean-Sebastien Decant—the lead designer of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. In a dimly lit room in a lavish New York City hotel suite, he showed off what was a portion of the game that—according to him– was at “about the game’s midpoint.” The first thing that must be said about this upcoming title is something that has been reiterated in every hands-on preview of the game; it’s of massive proportions. Decant openly stated that it is the largest Assassin’s Creed game to date.   To put the scale of this game into context, Havana, Nassau, and Kingston are the three major cities in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. And, in addition to the three major cities, the sailing mechanic provides for greater levels of exploration. Obviously, fast travel is still an option for the impatient. But, for those who wish to fully explore, Decant roughly estimated that it would take the gamer ten minutes to sail from Kingston to Havana—a stretch of time more »

  • Nick Offerman’s Guide To Facial Hair (Infographic)

    Nick Offerman, better known as Ron Swanson from NBC’s Parks and Recreation, has authored a book called Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals For Delicious Living. It is filled with all sorts of manly advice about woodworking, grilling, and even picking up women. Artist Mike Mitchell illustrated the book, including this infographic on acceptable and unacceptable facial hair. Sadly, when I was a naive teenager, I was guilty of sporting a “nut smudge” but I’ve long since learned the error of my ways and now I often proudly wear the “tracker” look.

  • New Meme Alert: Scarlett Johansson Falling Down [45 Photos]

    This one seems rather appropriate considering Scarlett Johansson was recently named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire. On October 23rd, 2012, Johansson was photographed falling down while filming in Glasgow, Scotland for the 2013 science fiction thriller film Under the Skin (shown below). Almost a year later a guy on Reddit named pegasus_x used a cutout 0f the fall to place Johansson in various photos falling down.

  • Miley’s VMA Performance led to the Apocalypse on SNL

    Miley Cyrus opened SNL this past Saturday imagined in a post-Apocalyptic America, all due to the destructive force of her raunchy “VMA” performance. Set in 2045 two survivors of the ruble that is now America talk about the moment the country started falling apart, the conculsion; Miley Cyrus’ performance. “Old Miley” travels through time to try and warn Miley about the consequences of her performance, but it does no good.

  • Scarlett Johansson Earns Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive. No One Complains. [8 Photos]

    Scarlett is anything but new to this title, seven years ago she was crowned Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire and hasn’t aged a bit since 2006. This is a milestone for the blonde bombshell, being the first woman to ever receive the honor twice. The 28-year-old actress told Esquire she’s “gotta hustle” and “pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop.” We strongly disagree, the Cougar/MILF is a role we’d travel time to see you play, Scarjo. The November issue of Esquire hits newsstands Oct. 15.

  • Harvey Dent Plays Frankenstein in New Action Flick (Trailer)

    Aaron Eckhart is the face of a new type of Frankenstein in “I, Frankenstein”. No bolts in his neck, platform shoes or flat top haircut, instead the new Franken-hipster dons a hoodie with a topcoat 200 years after his shocking creation. The original Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, walks the earth as a miracle of life,  but when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. Normally I would give this movie two bolts down, but Eckhart might have the star power to make this thing into a franchise. I Believe in Frankenstein.
