  • Behind The Scenes Photos Of James Franco, Jason Segel, And Seth Rogen When They Were Teens [17 Photos]

    From 1999-2000, NBC aired “Freaks and Geeks,” a high school comedy-drama set in the early 80s. The series was created by Paul Feig, who went on to direct “Bridesmaids,” and produced by Judd Apatow, who has made pretty much every comedy blockbuster of the last 15 years. The short-lived show is most remembered, though, for the “Freaks,” including James Franco, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen. It was the first time many of us saw these actors, and nobody could guess the huge stars they would become after appearing on a show that lasted just 18 episodes.

  • Drunk Russian Teaches Us The Futility Of Existence [Video]

    In this Russian take on classic Commedia dell’Arte, we find a contemporary Pierrot enduring an excruciating, caged existence. He pines for freedom, but his attempts, marred with buffoonery, are increasingly futile. When it looks as though all has failed, our clown resigned to this desolate Purgatory, stuck in an endless cycle of Sisyphean tasks, a lone cherub reveals an egress. Like Beatrice leading Dante from Purgatorio to Paradiso, the hero of this Divine Comedy is able to finally transcend his tortured plane and, perhaps, finally find the peace that has oft eluded him. Fin.

  • Bizarre Japanese Vitamin Water Commercial Celebrates NYC [Video]

    What’s the best way to sell Vitamin Water to the Japanese market? Well if I could answer that, I’d be in Tokyo swimming in piles of yen and not in Jersey rolling pennies so I can get some pork roll for breakfast (every little bit helps!). Whether it’s the best way or not, somebody at Coke had the idea to make this frenetic ode to New York City with a dancing man with a boombox for a head to advertise the tasty beverage often utilized as a hangover cure. Featuring such NYC staples as Ramen Burger, Strollercize, and Nitehawk Cinema, I’m not sure what the video has to do with Vitamin Water, but there is a lot of shouting so I’m pretty sure I should buy some just to be on the safe side.

  • A Look At The Navy’s New $3 Billion Ship, USS Zumwalt [11 Photos]

    On April 12, the US Navy christened its lates ship, the USS Zumwalt. It is the first of 3 ships in the new DDG category of destroyers, featuring the latest technology at a cost of over $3 billion each. Initially offering two 155mm AGSs equivalent to 12 155mm howitzers, it is anticipated that one AGS will be switched out with the Navy’s awesome new rail gun beginning in the 2020s. And despite being 40% larger than the ubiquitous Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, the new class of DDG is incredibly stealthy. The radar signature of the ship is akin to a fishing boat and the sound levels are about the same as the common Los Angeles-class submarines. All 3 DDG ships should be launched by the end of the decade, ushering in a new era of Naval warfare.

  • Forgo College And Study TL;DR Wikipedia Instead

    In this fast paced world of instant gratification, who has the time to read and study in order to learn? Sure, Wikipedia was fine for reading hours at a time in the quaint, relaxed early 2000s. We all spent long summer days in front of our Sony Trinitron 17-inch CRT monitors while sipping on Pepsi Blue, but those were simpler times. Now we need our information in inaccurate, succinct snippets. TL;DR Wikipedia sums up any subject, from Hitler to Soul Patches to Swing Dancing in a single sentence. Let these “facts” fill your head and feel your intellect embiggen.

  • 1 Star Amazon Reviews On Movie Posters Are Hilarious [25 Photos]

    Remember the days when film reviews were written by critics who were eloquent writers, imparting knowledge along with their well though out opinions? Lame. Thanks to the Internet, we can all voice our inane opinions and plaster reviews on sites like Amazon while we’re perched atop our toilets, dropping a deuce. In fact, as I write this piece about the lack of professionalism of Amazon users, I am sans pants and drinking a beer. But who cares? These reviews may not have the insight of a James Agee piece, but they’re certainly a hell of a lot more entertaining to read. For more great movie posters, follow “Awful Reviews” on Facebook.

  • 5 Absolutely Laughable Romantic Subplots in Blockbuster Movies

    With the millions of dollars that get poured into making blockbuster movies, sometimes the scripts fall short of expectations. Based on numbers, Hollywood cinema always seems to add a sappy romance subplot that humanizes even the mightiest of heroes—bringing the character to a level that the audience can relate. Hence, the audience is able to live vicariously through a fictional—yet still superhuman—entity. But, not all sappy romance plots are of equal quality. And, some evoke emotions that are the antithesis of the desired reaction—making it impossible to not laugh, cringe, or feel otherwise cringingly uncomfortable.

  • Astronaut Bloopers

    It’s pretty evident that walking on a surface area with completely different gravity might not be the breeziest of walks, but astronauts are people too. It’s just so hard to get those moon dust stains out of those million dollar suits.

  • Rosie Jones Crowned The Sexiest Brunette On The Planet [19 Photos]

    The ‘blonde vs brunette’ debate is one that has raged on for years. It might never be settled but to give dark hair ladies around the world a leg up Nuts decided to count down the 101 sexiest brunettes on the planet and who came out on top, one of out favorites Rosie Jones. You’ll hear no arguments from us about their decision. Now lets take a look at her sexiest brunette on the planet photo shoot. All photos via Nuts Magazine.

  • Have A Space Party Celebration For Yuri’s Night [12 Photos]

    April 12, 1961 marked the monumental occasion of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s first manned spaceflight. On that day 20 years later, NASA launched the first space shuttle. To commemorate the importance of April 12, Yuri’s Night was established in 2001 to encourage parties and gatherings aimed at entertaining while celebrating these milestones and encouraging a new generation of space explorers. In 2011, on the 50th anniversary of Gagarin’s flight, over 100,000 people attended 567 official events in 75 countries on all 7 continents. If you still haven’t made plans, find a party near you on the official Yuri’s Night site or use these photos from past events to give you ideas on planning your own. Check out more Yuri’s Night photos on Flickr.

  • Disguised Drake Gets People’s Honest Opinions About Himself [Video]

    Jimmy Kimmel sent Drake out on the streets in disguise to ask people what they think of the rap star and their reactions to his hosting of the ESPYs (which has yet to actually occur). There were plenty of Drake haters out there but the superstar took it all in stride. A guitar player even freestyled a song chastising Drake for not playing any instruments. He did find one fan with his final reveal, but everyone else was pretty brutal. Fear not, though, he most surely consoled himself in the arms of good friend Lebron James later that evening.

  • George Bush Uses Wikipedia For Artistic Inspiration [12 Photos]

    Everyone’s a critic, especially critics. Last week, former President George W. Bush unveiled portraits of world leaders he’s painted since leaving office. He’s no Chuck Close, eschewing realism for a more grade-school art class aesthetic, but his work does have a folksy quaintness about them. But leave it to an art critic to point out that Bush based his paintings on photos from Wikipedia and the top results on Google Images. You can read Greg Allen’s critique of the process on his blog. It seems that by tearing apart Bush’s art and the “message” of his methods, it just legitimizes him as an artist and not an old dude who just wants to paint to piss away some time. And deeper-meaning or not, that wonky-eyed Merkel gives me the willies.

  • Three Students transformed a 3-D Printer into a Tattoo Machine

    Three French design students participating in a workshophosted by ENSCI les Ateliers, a famous design school in Paris, were invited paricipants to spend eight hours transforming something in the public domain into another use entirely. They opted to take a 3-D printer and make it into a tattoo artist. The brilliant out-of-the-box thinking is just once of many feats 3-D printers will be capable of in the future. Think of it, perfect geometric shapes and circles could be the future of body ink. 3D PRINTER X TATTOO MACHINE / EP 02 from appropriate audiences on Vimeo.

  • Smithsonian Photo Contest Finalists Announced [25 HQ Photos]

    The photo editors at Smithsonian have announced the finalists for their 11th Annual Photo Contest. Over 50,000 submissions were whittled down to just 60 finalists. 10 photos were chosen for the following categories: Natural, Travel, People, Americana, Altered, and Mobile.

  • Lorde And Joan Jett Perform With Nirvana At Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction [Video]

    Last night Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, as custom dictates, performed a couple hits at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “But wait,” you say, “Kurt Cobain has been dead for 20 years. How could they ever play live?” In this age of creepy hologram zombies of our favorite musicians of yesteryear, this could be a frightening prospect. But fear not, agèd grunge fan, for surviving members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear, opted to forgo holograms, instead choosing to perform with other talented vocalists. Lorde sang “All Apologies” and Joan Jett performed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with the band. Although nobody can replace Cobain, they’re vocals were sufficiently gritty and anguished and the rest of the band sounded great. Also singing with Nirvana last night was Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and St. Vincent’s Annie Clark.

  • The Tim “The Toolman” Taylor and Batman Love-Child Hot-Rod

    Tim “The Tool-man” Taylor was known for his love of hot-rods and this one takes the cake. Batman is known for his futuristic gadgets and toys, the most recognizable being the Batmobile. So when you mix the two together you get this; A conceptual rendering from a couple of blokes from London, one being a sketcher and one a 3-d renderer. A dangerous combination for this type of Hobby.

  • NBA Logos Of The Pokemon Universe

    What would your favorite NBA team look like in the Pokemon universe? These logos popped up on Imgur this morning and we haven’t been able to track down a source yet, but whoever made them did a pretty good job. Some are obvious, such as the Team Rocket/Houston Rockets mashup. The most inspired has to be the Orlando Magikarps. Not only does Magikarp sound similar to Magic, the team looks like a bunch of fish out of water hopelessly flailing up and down the court (it’s okay, I lived in Orlando for ten years and rooted for those perennial losers). If you have any info on the source, let us know so we can give the artist some attention.

  • Iconic Concert: Nirvana Live at Reading 1992

    The remaining members of Nirvana visited Jimmy Fallon last night to talk about their time with Nirvana, the 20th anniversary of Kurto passing and their recent induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame so it seemed like the perfect time to post this incredible video from their performance at the 1992 Reading Fest.

  • This Supercut of Rats Invading New York City Will Make Your Skin Crawl [Not For The Squeamish]

    This week, New Yorkers were gripped by an era-defining viral video: the one where a rat runs all over a subway car. But that footage was just part of a larger genre of modern outsider art: cell-phone videos of New York City rats. nymag.com dove into a simple YouTube search (“new york rat”) and uncovered hundreds of videos taken by everyday people who felt the need to document their rat sightings. Some are relatively mundane, at least for native New Yorkers (rats on the subway tracks, rats hanging out near garbage in broad daylight); but some can horrify even the most hardened city-dweller (three words: “rat in toilet”). After rooting through this huge trove of amateur video, they put together a little supercut to celebrate rat videos and the rodents who inspire them. Claw away!

  • The 10 Types Of Friends You’ll Have in Your Twenties

    As you get older, one thing you’ll notice is that your pool of friends will decrease year-by-year, until one day the only people texting you are your wife and your 8-year-old son, who your wife insisted on getting a phone “in case of emergencies” (i.e. Snapchatting his balls to a classmate and getting suspended because that’s what happens when you give third-graders cell phones). But this article isn’t about what an asshole father I’m gonna be. This article is about the people you’ll have in your inner or not-so-inner circle at some point on the journey to eternal solidarity with your significant other and dipshit kid. These are the types of friends every bro will have at some point in his 20s.

  • Stephen Colbert’s 12 Greatest Moments On YouTube

    In what feels like a logical move it’s been announced that Stephen Colbert, the comedian and host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report,” will succeed David Letterman as host of “Late Show,” CBS’s flagship late-night franchise, when Mr. Letterman retires next year, the network announced Thursday.

  • 10 Retro Games That Are In Need Of a Remake

    Nostalgia is a vicious mindset—one that makes the reminiscing mind longing for days past. In the entertainment industry, musing retroactively can be especially powerful with the source of such past-longing being right in front of the ruminator—an electronic landmark from two decades ago. And, given the aforementioned industry’s obsession with rehashing the past in a nicer package—this exercise is seemingly more Dusting off the Nintendo 64, the Super Nintendo, the Sega Genesis, or the Sony Playstation; RSVLTS has come to the following conclusion—some games are simply too awesome to be trapped within the confines of their primitive technology. Hence, the gaming industry has a unique opportunity to make the past more tangible. But, what the ten best opportunities? Well, RSVLTS is here to countdown the top 10 Retro Games that deserve a full remake—not just an HD re-master.

  • Extreme Close-Ups Of Insects Look Like Aliens [17 Photos]

    Indonesia-based photographer Yudy Sauw takes extreme close-up photos of insects, getting as close as 10 centimeters away, to capture details we could never see with the naked eye. Patience is of the utmost importance since the slightest movement can cause the insects to flee, ruining the shot. In the end, it certainly pays off, with Sauw capturing incredible photos such as tiny water droplets on a fly’s head and the fangs of a tiger beetle. For more great insect photos, check out Yudy Sauw on 500px.

  • The Cast Iron Bottle Opener

    Pincers are probably one of the few tools that you don’t have in your garage, and it’s time to change that… kind of. Hand-forged in the Toyama region of Japan (where they’ve been casting iron for over 400 years), this pair of black enameled pincers looks and feels quite real – but it’s a bottle opener. Because the only thing you should be pincering anyways is a bottle of beer. [$20.95]

  • 7 Battle Lessons from a (German) WWI Warrior That Every Man Needs To Know

    “In war you learn your lessons, and they stay learned, but the tuition fees are high.”-Ernst Jünger, Storm of Steel There’s something to be said for a real world education. In such a classroom, you learn in a real-time, hands on, trial-by-fire way. Not only does the lesson stick better, but you have something concrete to show for it, from which you can analyze and learn. War is about as real world as the world gets. Trial-by-fire is literal, and missteps are a matter of life or death. Therefore, Jünger is quite right when he says the tuition fees are high. He’s also quite poignant on a few other topics in his WWI memoir, Storm of Steel. Now, we know the outcome of WWI, and we know it didn’t end in Junger’s favor, but we can still extract some lessons from his account about life, leadership, and business. (Also note that Jünger drank hard, smoked, and by most accounts, lived a very dangerous, risky life, being injured 7 times in WWI alone. He went on to live to age 102. Talk about resiliency.) So here’s one lesson for each of this crazy bastard’s WWI injuries (all following quotes from Storm more »

  • 22 Jump Street Trailer [Video]

    The final 3-minute trailer for “22 Jump Street,” possibly the biggest comedy of the year, has hit, and it looks great. This time Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and their boss, Ice Cube, are going undercover at spring break. Expect more of the same from the first movie, which means “22 Jump Street” will be a hilarious blockbuster when it’s released June 13.

    More than 3,000 dog and cat groomers from around the world descended upon New Jersey last weekend for Intergroom 2014, one of the largest conventions of its kind. Attendees were offered seminars and demonstrations of new products, but, mot important, was the competition. The following dogs from the Creative Challenge competition illustrate the talent and bizarre creativity of the best groomers the world has to offer. Do you think they have a creative competition for cats, too? I wouldn’t mind watching the calamity of such an event unfold…

  • The Hipster Fashion Of Namibia [24 Photos]

    At first glance, the people in these photos, what with their vintage clothing, trilby hats, pocket watches, pipes, and antique luggage, could pose for your regular Brooklyn hipster. But then you notice the background, and that sure ain’t Williamsburg. These pictures come from the African nation of Namibia, where Loux the Vintage Guru, a designer, stylist, and tailor, is leading a sharp-dressed fashion revolution. Loux gives old clothes new life and is spreading his vintage aesthetic with the help of a group of like-minded designers and stylists form Johannesburg known as Khumbula.

  • Land Rover Transparent Hood Concept [Video]

    Next week at the 2014 New York Auto Show, Land Rover will be presenting its Discovery Vision Concept, setting the tone for its new SUVs. Included in the presentation will be this “Transparent Bonnet Concept” system that uses cameras placed in the grille to capture the terrain below while it appears on the vehicle’s Head-Up Display, rendering the hood invisible. For those who use their Land Rovers for the off-road driving they’re intended for, the system will make navigating narrow tracks and climbing and descending hills and rocks much easier and safer.

  • The Mercury 7: America’s First Astronauts [22 HQ Photos]

    On April 9, 1959, NASA announced the original seven men chosen to be astronauts for the manned spaceflights of the Mercury program. Dubbed the Mercury 7, the group was made up of Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, Wally Schirra, Gordon Cooper, and Deke Slayton. NASA originally planned for an open competition to find its first astronauts, but President Eisenhower, ever a stick in the mud, insisted that they all be test pilots. Due to the size of the Mercury capsule, candidates could be no taller than 5’11″ and weigh less than 180 pounds. Other requirements were age under 40, a bachelor’s degree, and at least 1500 hours of flying time. More than 500 initially applied, and after rounds of testing, both physical and mental, the group was whittled down to 18. The final 7 were chosen because of their genius-level IQs and their ability to function both as a team and solo. Between them, the 7 flew on all classes of manned NASA spacecraft from the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle programs. With the exception, of Gus Grissom, who was tragically killed in the 1967 Apollo 1 fire, they all lived long lives well into retirement more »
