  • Can Alexandria Morgan Be Our Woman Crush Wednesday Again? [22 Photos]

    To say that we have high hopes for Alexandria Morgan would be an understatement. We think she is going to be the next big thing in 2014 and to celebrate we’re making her our #WCW, again. Sure, some of you might be saying, “but guys you featured Alexandria as Woman Crush Wednesday back in April” and to that we respectfully say, who the f&%k cares. Did we mention that Alexandria Morgan stopped by RSVLTS HQ for a photoshoot that will be debuting leading up to Memorial Day weekend? Make sure you follow @RSVLTS to see all the exclusive photos when they launch…


    The dump is long gone, some of us do have axcents, and yeah, you may see a few overly tan folks and a velour tracksuit or two while you’re here. But for the sake of your stomach, I ask you to push aside your stereotypes and fear of the unknown, and allow me, a lifelong Islander, to take you on a tour of the 11 best pizzerias on Staten Island. Consider this your delicious first step into the borough that has much more to offer you than you originally thought. 

  • 5 Money Issues to Discuss Before the Wedding Day

    Talking about money might not be as fun as discussing the songs your reception band will play or the tropical location in which you’ll be honeymooning, but it’s truly one of the most important pre-wedding talks you’ll have. You’re probably aware that finances are one of the issues married couples argue about the most. To make matters worse, these types of arguments have also been attributed as the leading cause of divorce in the United States. Like any issue in a relationship, the best course of action is to have an early discussion to get ahead of any potential problems before they arise. To help you get started, here are five money-related conversations to have with your future spouse before the big day:

  • The Incredible Loads Of Vietnamese Motorbikes [10 Photos]

    With tons of people traveling on very narrow roads, motorbikes are the most common mode of transportation on Vietnamese streets. Whereas Americans find the need to drive gigantic SUVs and pickup trucks to transport absolutely nothing, the Vietnamese do the exact opposite, overloading their little bikes to an absurd degree. Photographer Hans Kemp moved to Ho Chi Minh City in 1995 and in 2000 was commissioned to capture photos of the city’s motorbike culture. He was enamored with the insane amount of all sorts of objects on the tiny bikes and spent the next two years photographing as many as he could. The collection became a book titled “Bikes of Burden.” Kemp recently returned to city for a revised edition to his book. He found that although the streets have widened, the bike culture is just as prevalent, with immense loads as abundant as ever. Order the new edition of “Bikes of Burden” for $24.

  • Awesome Illustrations of “Pop Culture Buddies” from TV & Film

    The term bromance is the common term used today, but throughout cinema and TV history alike, there has always been major success for two best friends who offer a dynamic charisma to the screen. Australian artist Dave Collinson thought up a great concept to illustrate the most famous “bromances” of the past 40 years captured in a series of paintings. Collinson went all in getting great moments like Jesse and Heisenberg getting after some ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ fried chicken, Marty McFly and Doc Brown cruising on some hoverboards and Carton and Will doing “the Carlton”.   

  • Famous Brand Logos Star Wars Style

    These are the logos you’ve been looking for. New Zealand-based designer Barn Bocock used logos from brands like Coca-Cola, Atari, and Nike to mixed them up with Star Wars characters to create these awesome designs. Hopefully this is just the beginning of the series, because a Lando Rover logo would be pretty sweet. Or maybe Leia potato chips? No, that’s actually a terrible idea. You can order your favorite on a T-shirt at the incredible named How to Carv Roast Unicorn store.

  • Your First Look At The Atlanta Braves New Ballpark [7 Photos]

    The Atlanta Braves have released six conceptual renderings for a first peek at the new ballpark and mixed-use development design. “This is a very early look at how our vision is shaping up and, even though we are still months away from final plans and drawings, we are very pleased with the progress,” said John Schuerholz, president of the Atlanta Braves. “The renderings represent the sense of place we intend to create 365 days a year in addition to a world-class ballpark.” Shopping, dining, living, office and entertainment space, as well as a boutique hotel, will create a play, work, stay environment complete with green space and a water feature. The development, combined with an intimate, state-of-the-art ballpark, will keep this destination bustling year round. You can attempt to view the images over at homeofthebraves.com but chances are the site will be down because it is flooded with traffic so we pulled together the photos below of the ballpark set to open in April 2017.

  • Pop-Up Restaurant That Parachutes Sandwiches to Customers Is Coming To New York City

    There’s nothing really special about toasted sandwiches, but when they’re delivered via parachute, people are bound to notice. Taking full advantage of this idea is a new Melbourne business called ‘Jafflechutes‘ that has taken the city by storm. More pop-up eatery than regular restaurant, Jafflechutes is just a bunch of guys dropping wrapped sandwiches from their friends’ balconies, to customers down below.

  • This Hovercraft is set to Hit the Market by 2017

    California-based tech company Aerofex has been working on a street ready Aero-X hovercraft that is slated for flight tests in 2 years and will be market ready by 2017. The estimated price is a steep $85,000, but by then limes and honey should cost about the same so it’s a no brainer. The Aero-X hovercraft rides like a traditional motorcycle carrying up to two riders weighing up to 310 lbs combined.  After a vertical helicopter like takeoff, the hovercraft can cruise at speeds of 45 mph and get as high at 10 ft off the ground. The rotary engine only gets 1.25 hours per tank, so be weary of your travels. While safety is an obvious concern with propellers flailing about 10 feet above civilization, all the proper precautions have been taken making sure the rotors are isolates completely, also making for a better liftoff. While this may seem like the ultimate recreational experience, there are whispers of serious practicality uses for safety officials to patrol treacherous terrain like desserts or rocky regions. Reserve yours for just $5,000 now, a small price to pay for hoverglory.

  • Summer Warmly Welcomes The Runwell Watch By Shinola (Watch Wednesday)

    There’s no hotter watch brand than Shinola right now, we wrote about them in our inaugural issue of The RSVLTS Magazine in September 2013 and they’ve grown ten fold since then. Recently opening up a flagship store in Manhattan and having their watches distributed around the globe is proof that the great people of Detroit have taken their assembly skills to another level of intricacy. Handmade in a Detroit factory from the best watch materials in the world (Switzerland) the Shinola brand is sweeping the globe with their subtle yet bold designs. Each of The Runwell line is made from a sapphire crystal, Super-LumiNova printed dial details, and a solid stainless steel case with screw down crown with the movement thanks to the Detroit-built Argonite 1069 high-accuracy quartz movement. But that steel blue face with that brown leather band though. The Runwell watch is one of Shinola’s best selling watches, but all three models amplify the same style. Keep your eyes peeled for their signature lightning bolt, you’ll be seeing it for years to come. Shinola The Runwell $550

  • Live Long And Prosper In This Star Trek Bachelor Pad [22 Photos]

    Marc Bell, best known as former CEO of FriendFinder Networks, a company we’ve never heard of and whose services we have certainly never used when drunk and lonely, is selling his home in Boca Raton, Florida. And at $35 million, it’s the most expensive listing in the city’s history. From the outside, the 8-bedroom, 16-bath home looks like any run of the mill Mediterranean-style mansion you’ve seen. But inside the 27,000 square foot home is a replica of the control room from Star Trek’s Enterprise spaceship along with a “Call of Duty” themed room and a huge arcade. Outside you’ll find a basketball court, pool, and lounge complete with a giant chess set. For more info, beam yourself up to Douglas Elliman Real Estate. And may the force be with you or something.

  • Evolution Of The Batmobile [Infographic]

    Yesterday, “Batman vs. Superman” director Zack Snyder tweeted a picture of the new Batmobile while simultaneously humblebragging about his $8000 camera. Snyder’s version looks like the version from the Nolan trilogy from the back, but more car-like and less like a tank in front. It’s safe…but boring. With the new car in mind, take a look at this infographic chronicling the Batmobile from its beginnings as a plain, red convertible to the assorted comic book versions of 2010 (is that a Batmobile in space???) and let us know which one is your favorite. I typed this on my @Commodore SX-64. While wearing my @Hanes briefs. And nothing else, because I’m not at the office today. You’re not the only braggart, Snyder.

  • Zack Snyder Tweets First Photo of Ben Affleck at Batman With Batmobile

    Zack Snyder, Director for the questionably anticipated Batman vs Superman movie scheduled for release next summer, has released the first photos of the caped crusader in his bat-gear. Snyder caught some heat after making the questionable choice to cast Affleck as Batman after Christian Bale dominated the role for a decade. Eyebrows were raised, but many are overlooking the stellar comeback the Surviving Christmas star has made over the past few years as an actor and director. Snyder revealed a self shot photo of Batman with his trusty bat-mobile, which was definitely built with the image and likeness of the last generation as inspiration. As far as Batman’s costume goes, not much can be seen other than his unusually small bat-nubs on his head. Let’s hope Snyder does it right. If anything we’re still psyched Jesse Eisenberg will be sporting a bald cap as Lex Luther. I shot this with my @Leica_Camera M Monochrom. #Batman #Batmobile #Gotham http://t.co/WPHKLxgBLM pic.twitter.com/p5DEf6fLzJ — ZackSnyder (@ZackSnyder) May 13, 2014

  • Lonely Super-heroes Surrounded by Beautiful Landscapes

    Ever wonder where super-heroes go to get away from the perils of their every day environment? French photographer Benoit Lapray‘s photo-manipulation series called “The Quest for Absolution” which shows lonely super-heroes surrounded by beautiful landscapes. The series is suppose to portray comic book protagonists alone in their thoughts, Lapray says “Perhaps they are quite simply on a quest to find themselves?”. The series depicts a never before seen perspective of wonderfully shot landscapes with the hero immersed in their surroundings. The real brilliance of the series is how Lapray makes the photos more about nature than the hero.  

  • The Future Of Travel At Spaceport America [10 HQ Photos]

    With the American people electing more and more Luddites who refuse scientific evidence and are unable to understand any sort of technology, NASA’s future isn’t looking so bright. In fact, during the government shut-down last year, 97 percent of NASA employees were deemed “unessential” and sent home. It’s up to the private sector to explore space now and in New Mexico they’ve built the perfect headquarters. Spaceport America has been described as “the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport,” with tenants including Virgin Galactic, SpaceX, UP Aerospace, and Armadillo Aerospace. A visitor center in downtown Truth Or Consequences, the closest town to the Spaceport, is in the works and will offer shuttle bus services. With Virgin Galactic aiming to begin commercial space flights later this year, Spaceport America is the start of a new chapter in travel. For more info and photos, visit Spaceport America.

  • 5 Ways Your Car’s Paint Job Is Being Destroyed Every Time You Wash It

    Don’t ever get suckered into one of those $10 car wash locations ever again.

Not a good look for a guy trying to keep his paint job pristine. The best way to maintain your car is by doing it yourself. There is more to maintaining a car then just giving it a quick soap scrub and a rinse. It’s an art form. If you take prode in your car and want to keep it’s resale value high this is a must watch video.

  • Did You Notice These 15 Companies Changed Their Logos This Year? [Link]

    Netflix was in the news last week when the company was found to be using a new logo on ads for upcoming original programming. The new design opts for a minimalist approach, like so many other brands have done, eliminating shadows and cutting down on spacing. But Netflix isn’t the first company to change its logo this year. Here are 14 others you may have missed (probably because so many logos are beginning to look the exact same).

  • Dracula’s Transylvania Bachelor Pad For Sale [25 HQ Photos]

    You’d have to be batty to pass this up: Transylvania’s Bran Castle, also known as “Dracula’s Castle,” is up for sale. Although the castle was never the residence of Vlad the Impaler, the basis for Bram Stoker’s Dracula character, it is believed to be the influence for the setting of the gothic novel. The 57-room, 22-acre castle features a dungeon, music room, lavish dining areas, tall towers…and no bathrooms or plumbing. But don’t let the state of this fixer-upper scare you: With half a million visitors per year paying about $7 admission, the castle basically pays for itself. The price isn’t listed, but it’s believed to sell for over $135 million. Remember that scene in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” where Keanu Reeves is seduced by the three brides (including Monica Bellucci!)? A chance at that is totally worth $135 mil.
