  • Manhattan Micro Loft Bachelor Pad [10 Photos]

    Located at the top of a Manhattan brownstone, this loft offered the architects at Specht Harpman only 425 square feet to work with BUT with 25 feet of vertical space, they made this amazing micro loft. Through brilliant use of levels, every inch of the space is put to use. The fisrt level is the entry and kitchen, leading to the living space a few steps up. Then stairs lead to a bed pavilion projected over the living area that also has stairs up to a roof garden. The staircases contain storage area and even a bathroom. With very little furniture necessary, what was once a cramped space now seems perfectly comfortable.

  • Flight Attendant Beauties Of The 1960s [65 Photos]

    Apparently there was a time when flight attendants didn’t spend their time alternating between yelling at you (don’t tell me I can’t have more than two Scotches on my two hour flight!) and trying to sell you the airline’s credit card and passengers had fun with each other and the crew. Unless you’re rich or get a lucky upgrade, you’ll probably never experience such hospitality these days, so just take a look through these pictures and dream of these women the next time you’re being violated and humiliated by the TSA. These photos all come from the Pacific Southwest Airlines archive at the San Diego Air and Space Museum flickr page, where you can find thousands of great photos, not just of flight attendants.

  • 5 Hot Boozy Drinks to Keep You Warm Through a Blizzard (Infographic)

    Disregard if you live on the west coast. This winter has seen it’s fair share of snow storms already and it’s only early January. A snow day’s a snow day. I’m not complaining, but what makes a snow day? Booze. An egregious amount of booze. Granted you’re not operating a snow plow or any type of heavy machinery for that matter. So next time you’re cooped up with nothing to do, but booze, shovel, salt, repeat, try one or all of these warm concoctions by Michael Rego of the Stonhurst Manor.

  • Remembering James Avery AKA Uncle Phil

    Last night we heard the sad news that James Avery, who we all knew as Uncle Phil on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” passed away at the age of 68. Undoubtedly you will want to watch Uncle Phil comfort Will when his dad leaves him or revisit Avery’s work as the voice of Shredder on the original “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” cartoon, which is all well and good. But don’t forget his greatest accomplishment, starring in many YTMND pages that feature his “pillowy mounds of mashed potatoes” line from an episode of “The Fresh Prince.” So watch the original clip, then head over to YTMND and get your Uncle Phil fill. 

  • 24 Vintage Sports Ads

    I think it’s safe to say that if there’s one thing to take from these ads, it’s that if you wish to be a baseball great, you should start smoking cigarettes. Do they still make Chesterfields? Because I’d sure like to be the next Ted Williams! Also, note the Arthur Ashe Bufferin ad that mentions the heart surgery where he got the blood transfusion that was later revealed to be the cause of his AIDS. 

  • The Entire New Years Experience Summed Up In 15 GIFS

    Now that the champagne’s been popped, the ball’s dropped (pause), and the confetti has settled, it’s time to kick 2014 into high gear.

  • North Korea As Seen Through Instagram [25 Photos]

    Photographer David Guttenfelder of the Associated Press uses his Instagram account, dguttenfelder, to share his photos of the notoriously “camera shy” nation of North Korea. For his incredible work in the secretive, Communist nation, David was honored with the title of TIME Instagram Photographer of the Year for 2013. How is he able to do it? Recently, North Korea relaxed its laws concerning photography and Internet access, allowing tourists to carry around their smartphones and freely take pictures that they could immediately upload over 3G Internet without any intervention from the government. Guttenfelder, who resides in Pyongyang, has been taking advantage of the opportunity ever since, giving the rest of the world access to a country that has been hidden for more than half a century.

  • ESPN Releases First World Cup Promo [Video]

    2014 is finally here which means it’s time again for the the FIFA World Cup. This promo from ESPN will get you so pumped, that you’ll be sure to forget about the mass protests in Brazil against the tournament, which is causing the forced relocation of 30,000 families. Also, with the games closer to US time zones, we won’t have the luxury of getting drunk at 7 AM watching live matches from South Africa like the vuvuzela-laden party that was World Cup 2010, which means there probably won’t be as much interest from casual observers. No matter what, I know I’ll be glued to the TV come June just to see the South American fans. Remember Larissa Riquelme?

  • Invisible Bicycles Prove You Can Find Everything On The Internet [30 Photos]

    Reddit again proves that there is a subreddit for everything with the growing popularity of r/InvisibleBicycles. What started as a few viral pictures of celebrities with their bicycles erased through expert Photoshopping has now become a culture of people submitting requests of bicycled photos they want de-biked and eager digital media enthusiasts taking up the challenge. The results are sometimes sloppy, sometimes amazing, but for some reason they are all hilarious. Look at Olivia Wilde floating there and her dog’s just saying “Whaddaya want from me?” 

  • Man Pulls Off Epic Prank On The DMV [6 Photos]

    A man in Indiana pulled off an epic prank on the DMV that will probably backfire on him when he gets pulled over or tries to fly. He grew his hair out for a month, shaved a mu-manchu and went to the DMV to get a creepy drivers license photo that looks nothing like his normal self.

  • Dubai Won New Year’s With The Largest Firework Show In History [Video]

  • Ron Mueck’s Hyperrealistic Sculptures [20 Photos]

    Australian artist Ron Mueck uses resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials to create hyperrealistic sculptures that look extremely lifelike aside from the often outrageous scale. Mueck’s work, first shown in 1996 in London and most recently exhibited in Latin America, has been seen all over Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania. These grotesque representations of humanity are especially interesting since Mueck began his career making puppets for a children’s show in Australia in the early 80s. Let’s just be glad that whoever created the Lady Elaine Fairchilde puppet on Mr. Rogers isn’t making giant hyperrealistic sculptures.

  • 33 Pictures Of Famous People When They Were Young

    I never thought I’d see Ron Paul in anything other than a wrinkled cheap suit and sneakers.

  • Posters Visualizing SMH Client Feedback

    Everyone has someone to answer to. A boss, a client, a coworker; and they all have opinions. Sometimes it may be constructive criticism, but sometimes people talk, because they like hearing the sound of their own voice, unbeknownst of their own word vomit. A site called Clients from Hell, several Irish creative companies joined forces on a series called “Sharp Suits”… “Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters.” Let’s just remember that these quotes are from the people keeping the lights on.

  • Video: The Building Under the New Year’s Eve Ball Is Mostly Abandoned

    Millions of eyeballs will be glued to the ball drop in Times Square on Tuesday night, but few people know anything about the building underneath. According to the New Yorker’s fascinating short documentary on One Times Square, the building started out as the headquarters of the New York Times, housed a speakeasy and an FBI office used to trap German spies during World War II, and is now mostly abandoned, as no one wants to work in a building where all the windows are covered by billboards. Check out the video and head into New Year’s Eve with at least one top-notch conversation starter.

  • Where’d You Get Those? 10th Anniversary (Book)

    Bobbito Garcia is looked at as the Godfather of the sneakerhead. He’s been a follower of the style and life of sneakers since the ’60s and interviewed some of the best designers in the industry over the years. “Where’d You Get Those is a chronicle of the sneaker world from 1960-1987, a time where not only the style of sneaker was innovative, but the sneaker itself.

Although the book has been out for years, the 10th anniversary edition Out of print for years, features 400 hundred iconic sneaker designs arranged in an illustrated, chronological format.
