  • The 10 Most Instagrammed Places in 2014

    Instagram is now the absolute standard in social media photography and with that comes a certain geotagging, especially when hashtags are involved. PetaPixel obtained the most Instagrammed locations in the world from their archived data and the results are more than surprising. It’s no shocker sports arenas/stadiums make the list 3 times, but it’s the actual stadiums that are surprising. Yankee Stadium and MSG top the entire list, but Dodger stadium comes in at a far higher ranking. Most likely because they sell out nearly every game at over 47,0000 people in attendance every home game (81 total) which adds up to 3,782,337 people. Now it makes sense. Take a look at the top 10 most Instagrammed locations in the world in 2014. 10.

  • The 6 Wildest Stories From Leonardo DiCaprio’s Long, Party-Filled History [Link]

    Leonard DiCaprio has been in the news after he was recently seen leaving a Miami nightclub with 20 women. Not bad for a 40-year-old who’s never won an Oscar.

  • Ebola Fighters are TIME Magazine’s choice for ‘Person of the Year 2014′

    The epidemic that struck Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, Nigeria and Mali took the world by storm in 2014. It’s unprecedented outbreak, while deplorably fatal, didn’t stop doctors and nurses from traveling into the belly of the beast to help a region in dire distress. With minimal resources and precautions, volunteers from across the globe risked their lives and rejection from reentering their native country to help the Ebola epidemic any way they could. While the rest of the world watched in terror, unknown the reality of the situation, because of confusion in the media, “the special forces of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Christian medical-relief workers of Samaritan’s Purse and many others from all over the world fought side by side with local doctors and nurses, ambulance drivers and burial teams.” as told by TIME. “The rest of the world can sleep at night because a group of men and women are willing to stand and fight. For tireless acts of courage and mercy, for buying the world time to boost its defenses, for risking, for persisting, for sacrificing and saving, the Ebola fighters are TIME’s 2014 Person of the Year.” The Ebola Fighters are TIME’s Person more »

  • Insane Person Rides Motorcycle Down a Roller Coaster, Because Red Bull

    Riding a motorcycle down the street might be considered dangerous enough for some of us, but not Red Bull. French legend of moto trials, Julien Dupont decided that he wanted to be a part of “Red Bull Roller Coaster”, a trial run that includes Julien riding through a wooden coaster. A wooden roller coaster in Mexico. A wooden roller coaster in Mexico City. Not only is that dangerous enough for the most daring of daredevils, but Dupont decides to throw in a couple of back flips in there on the narrow track. The famed 108ft-tall Montaña Rusa coaster is a 50-year-old wooden ride at La Feria de Chapultepec amusement park in Mexico City. Dupont flips and falls through the drops and turns of the coaster most would second guess riding on a cart grounded by tracks. For Julen’s next trick he’ll be driving his motorcycle directly into a volcano.

  • UFC Before And After Photos Are Tough To Look At [15 Photos]

    Obviously UFC fighters are not familiar with Ron Burgundy’s one and only rule of fighting: No touching of the hair or face. Which is a shame, because maybe, just maybe, if they followed that rule they wouldn’t all suffer from disgustingly enormous cauliflower ears. Oh well. At least looking through these pictures you can feel happy that when you came to that fork in the path between UFC champion and desk jockey, you opted for the latter. Unless you didn’t, in which case you may want to take up the valiant battle cry “Not in the face!”

Here are our choices for best movie posters of 2014.

  • This Disabled Tortoise Was Fitted With A Lego Wheelchair

    Blade the tortoise suffers from a growth disorder that progressed to the point where his own limbs became so weak, he couldn’t hold himself up. German veterinarian Dr. Carsten Plischke was inspired by his son’s Lego collection to build a wheelchair for Blade using the popular toy. Just six pieces were used to give Blade mobility, attached to the bottom of his shell. Not only can Blade move around again, he can also rebuild the muscles in his limbs by scooting about on his Lego wheelchair. Hopefully he never falls at the top of a hill…

    This holiday season the police department of Lowell, MI had a little surprise for the people of their city.

  • Jack White Transforms Your Android Into A View-Master

    Jack White is always looking for ways to innovate. Earlier this year, the “Ultra LP” of his Lazaretto vinyl featured tracks at three different speeds, dual-groove technology that played different versions of songs depending on where the needle drops, hidden tracks beneath the labels, and even a hand-etched hologram. So what could he do next? Yesterday White released his Third-D app for Android. Using the Google cardboard VR headset, viewers are immersed in 3D stereoscopic videos of “Freedom 21″ and “Ball and Biscuit” recorded at a recent performance at Fenway Park and “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground” recorded at a recent Red Rocks show.

Learn how to build your own headset for your 5″ or 6″ Android device at Google Cardboard then download the app from Google Play.

  • The Most Insane Ski Line Ever Is A Big Nope [Video]

    Red Bull has done the impossible: They’ve created a ski film even better than the 1991 classic Ski School. Days of My Youth was filmed over two years and features incredible shots that make you feel like you’re the one on the skis and not just some lazy bum watching other people do fun things while you sit on your couch with your laptop and an Utz Barrel of Cheese Balls. One such insane scene features Cody Townsend’s line of the year. A lesser man would kill himself navigating the same crevice. A much lesser man would spill his cheese balls and wet his pants.

  • This 3D Street Art Hurts Our Brains [20 Photos]

    We’re big fans of street art, but anamorphic street art is on a totally different level. For you uncultured dolts, anamorphic art is two-dimensional but appears three-dimensional when viewed from a certain angle. Street artists will often employ shading techniques and tactical placement, such as where two walls meet, in order to accomplish the illusion. One of the most famous proponents of anamorphic street art is Portugese artsist Odeith. Beginning his career in the 80s as a graffiti artist, Odeith’s adept use of shading and perspective eventually led to the development of his anamorphic style. If you look at the photos in the gallery, you can see where the walls meet and get an understanding of how Odeith accomplishes the 3D look. But then you look down and realize that the illusion extends onto the floor. Then your brain melts. For more great pieces, including anamorphic and standard murals, check out Odeith.

  • I Spent One Day Experiencing the Future of Movies, and It Was Full of 4-D Katnisses and Virtual-Reality Narwhals [Link]

    3D movies have been around for more than half a century, but it wasn’t until they went high-def and IMAX supersized in recent years that the technology became more than just a silly novelty for campy horror movies. And we’ve really enjoyed the 3D experience for the last few years. However, we move at a fast pace these days, and 3D is already becoming stale. What’s next? 4D of course! Regal has now opened its first 4DX theater in Los Angeles, complete with rumbling seats, scents, and simulated elements to immerse you in the onscreen world. But is the $27 ticket price worth it?

  • 35 Bootleg DVD Fails

    To be fair, although these are all fails as far as translations go, some of them are happy accidents that would make for much better movies than what they’re supposed to be. Game of Thrones with Thor? Incredible Hulk with King Kong? Star Wars with Arnold Schwarzenegger? These bootleggers should be Hollywood producers!

  • 15 Inappropriate Uses Of Comic Sans

    Comic sans is a perfectly good font to use if you’re seven years old and making a shitty, clip-art cluttered card for your parents that they’ll hang on the refrigerator until you forget about it and they can throw it out. But if you’re an NBA star, LeBron James for instance, and you’re wearing a shirt to protest a serious issue, perhaps one that says “I can’t breathe,” you probably shouldn’t go with comic sans. Last night, LeBron James made such a faux pas, but he is in no way the first. There have been plenty of egregious uses of the font since it’s creation over 20 years ago. Here are a few especially shocking examples of unintended levity. Rape, electrocution, and death never seemed so silly!

  • Incredible Drone Footage Of Iceland [Video]

    The quality in this video is so good, it must have been made with professional equipment, for an absurd amount out of reach of any hobbyist, right? Nah. It was all done with a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro Hero4 Silver. The video was shot in 30fps then slowed to 24fps in post to give it an ethereal quality. Also, the original 2.7k resolution was downsampled to 1080p, resulting in supersharp video. And as a testament to the incredible quality of the GoPro, all the settings were left on auto. For a detailed description of the project, be sure to check out the story at Fstoppers.

  • President Obama Takes Over The Colbert Report

    Stephen Colbert is nearly done with The Colbert Report for good, taking a final leave for a desk job on CBS. Last night was the first of his last 10 shows and he began the final countdown by having President Obama on the show for an interview, but the Prez decided to come out early and read Colbert’s renowned segment, “The Word”, which Obama renamed “The Decree”. Obama joked “you’ve taken plenty of shots at my job, I’m going to take a shot at yours.” The segment circled around Obama-care, first knocking in Colbert-style, then lifting it back up while taking shots at Republicans on the matter, noting how if they wanted to destroy it they’d have to replace it, to where “The Decree” stated “Fracking the Elderly?”. The President then went on poking fun at the significant physical change he’s endured, no doubt because of stress, since he took office.
