  • A Slytherin is Playing the Owner of CBGB (trailer)

    Alan Rickman, formerly of House Slytherin, will be playing the proprietor of CBGB’s, Hilly Kristal in an upcoming true story piece about the New York City’s rock mecca. Original music from Iggy Pop, the Talking Heads, Blondie, the Velvet Underground, and the Police, with a laundry list of cameos playing the countless number of rock stars that sparked their careers at the venue. In it’s later days CBGB’s was known as more of a rotting landmark then a rock venue, which ultimately led to it’s demise and I’m sure Kristal wouldn’t have had it any other way.

  • The Awesome World of Minor League Theme Nights

    Minor League sports teams have always been synonymous with daring uniforms, a marketing gimmick to bring in fans and in some cases get some press out of it.

With college and premiere pro teams taking more risks with flashy jerseys, the minor league teams, known for their outlandish theme night kits have to push the envelope a bit. Here are some of the best, worst, laughable, awful, questionably WTF jerseys worn by minor league sports teams.

  • America’s Serious Addiction to Coffee (Infographic)

    The American Psychiatric Association released a Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders. (DSM-5) lists caffine intoxication and withdrawal as mental disorders. It’s the defibrillator that makes the world go round. I wonder the shear chaos that would erupt if, for one day, the world didn’t drink coffee. I, personally, can’t tie my shoes without having a cup of coffee in the morning. Before I know it, my shoes are across the room and there I lie, sprawled out on the floor in a full temper tantrum. It’s that bad. I could only imagine the full blown addicts (Denial is step 2?) trying to function in modern society. The APA has seen such parallels in addiction with caffeine and hard drugs, they’re now equated with each other. More shocking than that is the percentage of adults who consume it in this country, daily (%83). This infographic by TopCounselingSchools.com shows you the real dark roast side to our friend, Joe.

  • Rickie Fowler’s Lloyd Christmas Orange Tuxedo Inside Joke Explained

    This could be the discovery of the century. When Lloyd Christmas wore his iconic orange tuxedo to the Aspen Preservation Society’s Icelandic Snow Owl charity ball, he may have inspired a young golfer to bring that colorful flare to the course.

Plain and simple Rickie loves Dumb & Dumber. Who doesn’t? Best. Movie. Ever. This weekend Rickie showed off that he is a massive Dumb & Dumber fan, so much so that he actually got “Big Gulps, huh?” inscribed on his wedge. Which now explains why he wears top to bottom orange gear, it’s all an inside joke paying tribute to one of the greatest bro movie characters of all time… ‘Christmas, Lloyd Christmas.’

  • 5 Leadership Tips From John F. Kennedy’s Darkside

    Forget the bold words and speeches of John F. Kennedy. Let’s look at his actions. John F. Kennedy undoubtedly holds an allure over Americans as the young, attractive Catholic that presided over “Camelot” and fought for the ideals of a new generation. But his dark traits have also been well established over the last 40 years. Surely we can learn from his speeches and his noble characteristics. That isn’t hard to do. But I think he “dark side” offers some valuable lessons as well. What made him a dangerous President can also make you a stellar leader, if you apply these traits reasonably. Remember: those who can’t learn from the bad in life are missing half of life’s lessons. Here are 5 positive takeaways from the dark side of John F. Kennedy: 1. Be Willing to Take Risks “Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly.”- John F. Kennedy It was his defining characteristic. From the Bay of Pigs to Marilyn Monroe, JFK liked to risk shit. He liked to live on his toes. His sexual escapades continually disrupted national security (not to mention his own marriage), and his apparent recklessness brought us (arguably) close to World War III. more »

  • This is the Most Expensive Home in the U.S., Copper Beech Farm, Connecticut

    This is the epitome of wealth, my friends. Pure unadulterated $190 million wealth. Copper Beech Farm has 15,000 square feet of living space, 7,000 square feet of basement and attic space, and an 1,800-foot-long driveway. Other features include a grass tennis court, many gardens, apple orchard, greenhouses, 75-foot-long heated pool, and a carriage house. Although it might look like an ordinary house, it was built in the 1890’s and has the same floorplan as the original with some functionality adjustments, such as a kitchen on the main floor next to the dining room. The original was in the basement, which was part of the staff quarters. I’m still not exactly sure how this home got the price tag, but Bill Gates, Mark Cuban and Pitbull, eat your heart out. A small part of me actually likes how modest (modest for $190 million).

  • Adidas Unveils New Uniforms for Notre Dame and Nebraska

    Welp, out with the old in with the new. New beginnings for two of the most traditionally garbed schools in college football. Last year the Fighting Irish sported an off centered helmet, (almost) half gold, (almost) half navy with the fighting irsihman logo on a single side. Along with that was a simple navy uniform with gold numbers.Not crazy, but enough to get the traditionalists up in arms. This year they went ‘classy’, all white with gold numbers and back to their signature gold helmet, with a shamrock twist. The Fighting Irish will wear these alternate uniforms on October 5, 2013 when they face off against Arizona State at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Nebraska on the other hand went off the charts badass. Stencil simple white numbers, black uniforms with a dark grey micro pattern and stuck with their traditional helmet, sporting a black strip down the center, to keep grandpa happy. Well done, Adidas. You’re learning. Nebraska Cornhuskers will wear these alternate uniforms on September 14, 2013 when they host UCLA at Memorial Stadium for adidas’ annual Unrivaled Game.
