  • Steven Soderbergh’s “Psycho” Mashup

    Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, who constantly threatens to quit the biz but never seems to follow through, has released a mashup of Alfred Hitchcock’s original “Psycho” with Gus Van Sant’s 1998 remake, aptly calling it “Psychos.” Since the 1998 version was mostly a shot for shot remake, the two mesh together fairly seamlessly. Of course, Soderbergh made Van Sant’s version black and white so as to not make it look ridiculous, except during the iconic shower scene where he layers the two together for a really great effect. As of now, the mashup is only available on Soderbergh’s Extension 765, with no embed available, so the site has been up and down all day. It’s definitely worth a watch, if only to remind us all how hot Anne Heche was. Also, if Soderbergh ever does quit making his own movies, he should try his hand at a few more projects like this. He has a ton of material to work with, since Hollywood just remakes movies every couple decades these days. Can we get a “Wicker Man” mashup?

  • Ben & Jerry’s Just Changed the Game and There Ain’t no Goin’ Back

    Ben & Jerry are Innovators of a generation. Saviors of summer days and binge eating nights. The dynamic duo of delicious. The Vermont based ice cream company has just changed the game forever. They recently released new ice creams feature a flovor column that runs down the center of the ice cream container. That column is a delicious accent to the ice cream of fudge, caramel or raspberry jam. The flavors to hit and sell out fast are Hazed & Confused, Peanut Butter Fudge, Salted Caramel and That’s My Jam.

  • Poland’s Creepy Skull Chapel [13 HQ Photos]

    From the outside of the Skull Chapel, or Kaplica Czaszek, in the Polish village of Czerma, you would just think it to be a run of the mill place of worship for the townspeople. But then you enter and see the skulls of 3,000 people on the walls of the small church. Then you’d go into the basement and find another 21,000 skeletons. The remains are those of people who died in the Thirty Years’ War, three Silesian Wars, and from various cholera epidemics in the 18th century. It is the only monument of its kind in Poland and one of only three in all of Europe.

  • 1980s New York City News Teasers are Horrifying (Video)

    new York City in the ’80s was a bit more terrifying than today. Subways skinned in graffiti, street walkers owned Times Square and the lot of the Lower East Side was a decadent wasteland of drugs and addicts. But this CBS news supercut of two news anchors teasing the nightly news is just plain scary. Matthew Callan, creator of the video wrote on YouTube that these teasers aired during 1985 “holiday specials aimed at kids.” with teasers like “Undercover cops in the classroom” and “The search is on for the High-Rent Rapist” the news really pulled out all the scare tactics during the holiday season.

  • Around The World with a Lego [20 Photos]

    LEGOgrapher is the creation of photographer Andrew Whyte, a cute and fun campaign that lasted for 365 days. Andrew would carry his LEGOgrapher around the world during his travels and shoot one shot a year using the shallow depth of feild to make the viewer feel the world from the tiny point of view.

  • The Intriguing Dense Architecture Of Hong Kong [38 Photos]

    With an area six times that of Washington, DC and a population more than 10 times the US capital, it’s safe to say Hong Kong is a fairly densely populated place. In fact, 36 of the world’s 100 tallest residential buildings are in Hong Kong and more people there work on or above the 14th floor than anywhere else on the planet, making it the world’s most vertical city. German-born photographer Michael Wolf lives and works in Hong Kong and has  taken a keen interest in the mega city. His work manages to make the repetitive, simple architecture of Hong Kong’s residential buildings into works of art. These photos represent just a small sampling of the people and places he’s captured. For other series, check out Michael Wolf Photography.

  • Everything Wrong With Taken In 9 Minutes Or Less

  • Smell Like The Man You Wish You Were With Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap

    Fact: When you use Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap, you instantly grow a big, thick beard; acquire infinite knowledge of carpentry, mechanics, and animal husbandry; your shirts all turn to flannel; and the women, my God, the women can’t help but fall all over you. More accurate fact: Those things don’t actually happen but you’ll feel like they do. Grandpa’s Pine Tar Soap has been sold continuously since 1878 and is made from coconut oil, palm oil, and pine tar oil. What does pine tar oil smell like? Imagine an old leather baseball glove mixed with a campfire and just a hint of rubber. It may not sound all that great, but one whiff and you’ll be transported back to your grandpa’s shed. Unless unspeakable things happened to you there, in which case just think of happy times with Laphroaig single malt Scotch, which has a very similar scent now that I think about it. And although the soap may leave you smelling like a tough guy, the natural ingredients are gentle on the skin, leading to the soap’s popularity among folks suffering from various skin conditions. If you’re a bearded gentleman, Grandpa’s is a great moisturizer that will keep you from more »

  • Tu-144: The First Supersonic Transport Aircraft [12 Photos]

    Everyone knows about the Concorde, the supersonic transport, or SST, that was retired in 2003, but the first and only other SST to enter commercial service was the Soviet-built Tupolev Tu-144. The prototype first took flight in December of 1968, two months before the first Concorde. It went supersonic June 5, 1969 and reached Mach 2 May 26, 1970. The Tu-144 began passenger service November 1, 1977 but after a test flight ended in a crash in May of 1978, the passenger fleet was grounded, with only 55 flights completed. The SST was still used for cargo until 1983.  Although both the Concorde and Tu-144 have been retired, they are fondly remembered as symbols of a most exciting era in commercial flight. 

  • Robin Thicke’s Ken Doll Arms

    What’s up with Robin Thicke’s arms? Are his jackets too small? Does he have “Tin Man” joints in need of oil? This is probably why Paula Patton split up with him. She needs a man whose arms are fully articulated, more a G.I. Joe than a Ken doll. I’d just like Miss Patton to know that I happen to have fully functional elbows. And I won’t play grab-ass with other gals at the VMAs. 

  • 50th Anniversary Of Cassius Clay Vs Sonny Liston [16 Photos]

    On February 25, 1964, in a well publicized bout in Miami, Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, faced Sonny Liston for the first time. Ali’s record at the time was 19-0 and it was the first title match for the 22-year-old. Although he was an Olympic gold medalist, the odds favored Sonny Liston 7 to 1. After 7 rounds, however, Liston was counted out and Ali became the heavyweight champion. Bookmakers would have been smart to listen to Ali the night before the bout, when he released this incredible poem: Clay comes out to meet Liston and Liston starts to retreat, If Liston goes back an inch farther he’ll end up in a ringside seat. Clay swings with a left, Clay swings with a right, Just look at young Cassius carry the fight. Liston keeps backing but there’s not enough room, It’s a matter of time until Clay lowers the boom. Then Clay lands with a right, what a beautiful swing, And the punch raised the bear clear out of the ring. Liston still rising and the ref wears a frown, But he can’t start counting until Sonny comes down. Now Liston disappears from view, the crowd is getting more »

  • Ride A Real Life “Tron” Bike, The Lotus C-01 [8 HQ Photos]

    Originally announced last year, Lotus recently revealed that the C-01 hyperbike is ready for production. Designed by Daniel Simon, the man behind the Bugatti Veyron, the C-01 is 400 pounds of sleek carbon fiber, aerotech steel, and titanium. The unique bike is built to be light and strong, having more in common with a formula 1 car than with most other bikes. Only 100 units will be produced, but that should be plenty for the few people who can actually afford it. The C-01 will retail for a hefty $137,450 plus taxes, which, for the same amount, could get you 4 Ducati 1199 Panigale R superbikes. Or a small house is many places.

  • Skynet Update: Robots Direct Traffic In Congo

    Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo, is home to 10 million people and is ever growing. Traffic, especially during rush hour, is a problem, and to keep drivers and pedestrians safe, officials made the obvious choice of installing 8 feet tall humanoid robots.  An amalgam of traffic cop and traffic light, the robots can stand all day and night without needing a break and they even talk to pedestrians, alerting them when it’s safe to cross. Made of stainless steel and aluminum, the robots should easily stand up to the elements, but angry drivers could be another story. So far, only two have been installed, but if successful, this can be the beginning of a future ruled by our peaceful robot overlords.

  • 10 Athletes Who Would Have Made Excellent Vikings [Link]

  • Fascinating Time-Lapse Video Showing Snowflakes Being Formed

    “Snowtime,” from Vimeo user Vyacheslav Ivanov, is an interesting time-lapse video that shows snowflakes as they form. Unfortunately, he shares no info on his method, but his many other time-lapse videos are proof that he is a master at capturing natural occurrences we would normally miss out on. As an added bonus, the music is one of the few not scary Aphex Twin songs.

  • Unprecedented Massive Land Art Installation in the Sahara [15 Photos]

    Founded in 1995, the D.A.S.T. Arteam, made up of installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantinedes, was formed for the purpose of creating “Desert Breath,” a massive art installation in the Sahara Desert. Taking up 100,000 square meters of the eastern Sahara near the Red Sea, “Desert Breath” is made up of positive and negative conical volumes forming two interlocking spirals moving out form a common center. The project was completed in 1997 and still stands but is slow disappearing due to the nature of, well, mother nature. For more info on “Desert Breath” and other projects, check out Danae Stratou’s portfolio.

  • LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy Makes Music For NYC Subway [Video]

    It has been almost 3 years since LCD Soundsystem played their last show, and frontman James Murphy has announced his new project: turning New York City’s subway stations into beautiful symphonies. He has been working on the idea for 15 years, and with the MTA soon changing the turnstiles from a swipe to a tap system, the timing finally seems right. Murphy wants to get rid of the extremely annoying, high pitched tone of a successful swipe and replace it with different melodic sounds played at random that during the busiest times would create unique musical works and make the entire experience a more pleasant one for commuters. If you like what you hear in the video, help him out and add your name to the petition at Subway Symphony.

  • First Time In 20 years: Great Lakes 88% Frozen [3 HQ Photos]

    NASA satellite images are showing that the Great Lakes are now 88% frozen, something not seen since 1994. The winter average since 1973 is just over 50% coverage, with 80% only reached 5 times. 2002 saw the lowest coverage on record, with just 9.5%. The first image is a natural color photo of the Great Lakes region with a false-color image following to differentiate between ice (pale blue), open water (navy), snow (blue-green), and clouds (white).  The final image is a natural color photo showing the shipping lane carved by ice breakers. Although it may not seem like it, the ice is positive for the region, with an increased water supply and good news for shipping and recreational uses. That is, if it ever thaws.

  • Dennis Rodman’s North Korean Exploits Will Be Turned Into A Comedy Movie [Link]

    At least some good is finally coming from Dennis Rodman’s bizarre, alcohol-fueled, “hoops diplomacy” mission to North Korea. A comedic film based on the Worm’s January journey to North Korea and his mind boggling relationship with its despotic leader is now in the works with “Ride Along” director Tim Story attached to the project. Is a nation rife with human rights abuse an apt subject for a goofy comedy? Maybe with the right cast…

  • 5 Different Perspectives of the Metrodome’s Demolition Implosion

    Yesterday the former home of the Minnesota Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves and U of Minnesota football was finally put to rest. The Twins and Wolves would eventually move on to greener pastures, but the Vikings were stuck with the stadium until last year, when the ceiling of the dome literally collapsed due to weight from a snowstorm. Luckily the dome wasn’t in use at the time. Since the incident, new plans were approved for a brand new facility the Vikings can call home, putting to rest the stadium TIME Magazine pegged dead last in a 2012 NFL stadium ranking. On Sunday morning a series of controlled explosions finally put the aged stadium down. Using demo explosions were originally out of the question, but last week crews decided it would be the best option, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. The “Dome” was the only stadium to host the World Series, MLB All-Star Game, NCAA basketball’s Final Four, and a Super Bowl.

  • An Epic Antarctic Journey: There and Back [Video]

    In 1912, Robert Falcon Scott put together a team and set out on the unheard of journey to the south pole on foot. It would have been an amazing feat, but it was not meant to be, for on the return voyage the entire expedition perished in the cold. Contemporary British adventurers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere decided to take up the challenge and after 105 days, recently became the first to make the trek without the help of motorized vehicles. This video gives some highlights, but for more information and a look at their travel journals, check out The Scott Expedition.
