  • Eye-Catching Series Captures The Piercing Gaze of Famous Eyes

    The eyes are a window into a person’s soul. They tell a story in themselves, even if you isolated them, cutting around everything else, which is exactly what artist Jason Edmiston did in his current series ‘Eyes Without A Face’ currently on exhibition at the Mondo gallery in Texas,  The gallery focuses on the piercing gaze of pop-culture icons from cinema and stage.

  • Morton’s Unveils “Million Dollar Burger” For A Fraction Of The Price

    Although Morton’s The Steakhouse may be best known for their steaks (duh), the restaurant chain all began with a hamburger. Arnie Morton and Klaus Fritsch were working together at Montreal’s Playboy Club in 1978 when Fritsch prepared a burger for Morton to sample. Morton said it was the best he’d ever had and the duo teamed up to open Morton’s of Chicago, the first of the chain’s 70 restaurants. Morton’s is celebrating the humble hamburger with their over-the-top Million Dollar Burger. It’s the classic Morton’s burger topped with foie gras, black truffle butter, and braised short ribs on a brioche bun. The decadent burger comes with fries and a glass of Stags’ Leap Winery “The Investor.” The meal will set you back $39 at most locations or $45 at New York-area locations. When you think about it, that’s a pretty decent deal for a Million Dollar Burger. Just be sure to get yours before they disappear April 12.

  • Is This A True Augmented Reality Demo Or Just A Gimmick? [Video]

    Last year Google invested $542 million in Magic Leap and at the time, nobody really knew what the company was up to. And now we’re still not entirely sure, but if this video is any indication, the company is onto something huge. The video begins with some standard augmented reality apps for checking email and the like, but when a game is launched, things get awesome. An office is transformed into a level from a first-person shooter in a totally immersive environment. Let’s just hope it’s the real deal and not a marketing gimmick.

  • The World’s Best Single Malt Scotch Is From…Taiwan?

    When you think of single malt scotch, you probably think of burly, bearded men distilling whisky in foggy, heather-filled moors of…Scotland. After all, the place is in the name. But these days, the best-rated single malts are coming from nowhere near Scotland. Last year we told you about the Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013 from Japan, which received top honors in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. Now the World Whiskies Awards have named Taiwan’s Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique the world’s best single malt. The 58.6 per cent ABV whisky has previously been awarded New Whisky of the Year in the 2012 Whisky Bible and was described at the awards as “surprisingly smooth on the palate” and “like Bourbon-infused milk chocolate.” Kavalan says the whisky is aged in American oak barrels that previously held both white and red wines. Sounds pretty good, huh? And at $140 for a 700ml bottle, the Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique is quite affordable as far as the world of single malts is concerned. So…anyone know if Clan MacGregor won any awards?

  • The Air Force Made a Stealth Super-car You’ll Never See Coming

    The Air Force isn’t just advanced laser warfare and sound barrier breaking aircrafts, sometimes they like to have fun with cars too. So they built the Dodge Vapor, a matte black muscle car with Air Force accents, because not every military ground vehicle has to be a Hummer. So not only does it’s fine matte finish actually look bad-ass, but according to the Air Force is absorbs radar, and is designed to emulate planes like the F-117. The “web-cam” mounted on top of the roof is actually a state of the art 360-degree thermo-survalence camera, the “command center” on the dashboard include 3 large LCD monitors that control, thermal imaging, GPS, internet access and stealth exhaust, not to mention a thermal-scanning camera mounted to the bumper that leads to a windshield heads up display for dark stealth purposes. Oh and some carbon fiber tire caps, just in case you enemy is trying to take out your brake line.   

  • A Malaysian Oil Rig Has Been Reborn As A Scuba Diving Resort

    Located in the heart of the famed Coral Triangle in Malaysia is Seaventures Dive Dig Resort. The 25-room resort was formerly an exploration jackup rig for the oil and natural gas industry that has been transformed into a scuba diving mecca. In addition to both four-berth dormitories and standard single and double rooms, Seaventures also features a movie room, a karaoke lounge and bar, pool tables, table tennis table, a souvenir shop, and a small conference room. Weekly barbecues and live music also entertain divers while they catch their breath. But the real marvels lie below the water. The Coral Triangle is home to more than 3,000 species of fish and 500 coral species. And the rig makes it easy for divers to make their way underwater, with an elevator eliminating the need to lug gear on and off a boat. Unlimited House Reef diving is free to guests whenever they want. A variety of PADI courses ranging from try dives and beginner courses to professional certifications and specialties is also offered by the resort.

  • What’s All the Hype Around the Nike Air Max Zero?

    Recently, Nike Design Director Graeme McMillan revealed a sketch from the Nike archives, where it had been collecting dust since 1987. The sketch was drawn by Nike’s legendary lead designer Tinker Hatfield, the man responsible for creating some of the most well known sneakers on earth, like a one man Pixar, he can’t miss. The vintage sketch was designed before the iconic Air Max 1 shoe released in the 1980s, called the Air Max Zero, a concept that would eventually turn into the Air Max 1, but because of technological limitations was never produced until now. Originally he designed the upper to be comfortable and form-fitting, with a tipless vamp, an idea borrowed from the 1985 Nike Sock Racer. The sketch also featured an external heel strap that lacked a heel counter, a design concept that remained unseen until the Nike Air Huarache release in 1991.

  • 8 Post-Punk Icons As Marvel Superheroes

    We never noticed how similar angsty, costumed, post-punk music icons are to angsty, costumed, Marvel superheroes until we saw this latest series from artist Butcher Billy. You may remember Billy’s insanely popular series of post-punkers as DC heroes a few years back, but we think the connection with Marvel’s tortured heroes makes much more sense. Just look at poor Morrissey down there. He would go out tonight, but he hasn’t got a stitch to wear. Because he tore all his clothes when he turned into the Hulk. But he is human and he needs to be loved. Just like everybody else does.
