  • Weekend Update Interviewed Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey Ensues.

    Taran Killam, SNL’s budding superstar is no stranger to being in the spotlight for his spot on impressions, but his Matthew McConaughey is so on point, it’s more eerie than Rust Cohle on a existentialist rant. Killam, dressed in his Academy Awards McConaughey white tux, goes on tangent after tangent in true to form, now signature McConaughey style. McConaughey won the best actor award at the Oscars after a spellbinding performance in Dallas Buyers Club and has gained recent admiration for his role as a brilliantly lethargic yet philosophic detective on HBO’s True Detective. New co-anchor Colin Jost interviews McConaughey on his recent accomplishments and future projects. This is one for the ages.

  • The Real Wolf Of Wall Street [Infographic]

  • The Sleaze Of Old Times Square [30 HQ Photos]

    When artist Mitch O’Connell was trying to make it big in his late teens, he would travel to New York City with his illustrations and wander the city, taking photographs. In those days, the most exciting place was 42nd Street, home to peep shows, porno theaters, and adult book stores. And a Howard Johnson’s! Apparently, in the days of wine and roses that were late 80s/early 90s Times Square, you could get a peep show for just a quarter! You’re lucky if you can get a gumball for a quarter these days. Sure, Times Square is a lot safer now, but at what cost? This is just a small sample of Mitch’s photos. Check out the rest and his great illustrations at the Mitch O’Connell Blog.  

  • 20 Times You Might Have Seen Bryan Cranston On Screen And Not Realized It

    Bryan Cranston may be a Hollywood darling now, but for every Argo or Drive, there are a dozen bit parts on shows like Walker, Texas Ranger and Baywatch not far behind. Saying that he’s paid his dues in Hollywood is an understatement — the man appeared on Murder, She Wrote in three different roles! Seinfeld and Malcom In The Middle excluded, here are 20 Bryan Cranston roles before Breaking Bad that you might have forgotten about.

  • Amazing Dad Animates His Son In Dragonball Intro [Video]

    Imagine how cool this kid must be with his group of friends. “What did you get for your birthday?” “A rock tumbler and some stupid mancala game. How about you?” “Oh nothin’ much, my dad just animated himself and me in the opening to Dragonball. But, hey, a rock tumbler, that’s cool.” Brazilian animator Robson Menezes dos Santos has set a high bar for 2014 Father of the Year. I just wish my dad had animated me with the Thundercats.

  • The Empire Strikes Back, Lego Style [25 Photos]

    Using Star Wars Lego sets and baking soda, photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, or Avanaut, is able to recreat the ice planet Hoth from “The Empire Strikes Back.” Sure, some nerds might complain that the photos don’t follow the actual storyline, but there’s no denying how impressive and cool they are. And anyway, I think we can all agree that Boba Fett making an appearance on Hoth would have been awesome. Who can get enough of the Slave I? Be sure to check out the rest of the Hoth series and Avanaut’s other Lego photo sets on Flickr.

  • Inside The Nirvana Superyacht [25 Photos]

    The 2014 Dubai International Boat Show recently wrapped up and although we couldn’t be there to rub shoulders with the disgustingly rich, we can still enjoy their ostentatious lifestyles through photographs. I know that if I was to develop an app that scared Facebook into giving me billions or exploit my fellow man for the sake of oil riches, I would want to buy the Nirvana superyacht. For a tad over $300 million, this 290 foot yacht could be all yours. The Nirvana features everything you need for entertaining, with 10 jet skis, a 3D movie theater with popcorn maker and bar, a stage for live performances, and a vivarium that comes loaded with lizards and turtles for your amusement. And if you don’t feel like taking the stairs to travel between the six decks, you can always use the 6-person elevator. Time to get started on the 52-week money challenge!

  • PornBurger Can Turn A Vegan into a Carnivore

    Our new favorite foodie website is a Tumblr dedicated to the art of a good burger. What PornBurger has done is found the perfect formula to visually articulating different delectable variations of the burger into super high quality photos with detailed ingredients noted on each photo. Simple, but effective. I literally just ate a burger before viewing the site and I’m already jonesin’ for another. Each burger is described in elegant detail just underneath the photo, here’s an example of the Dirty Birdy Burger “This is a classic case of a racy burger flown a-fowl: A duck confit burger, scandalously dressed in fried chicken hearts, smothered in fig catsup, and bedded on a creamy spread  of chicken liver pâté. This is certainly one bird you won’t be bringing home to umami and daddy.” Now go. Enjoy all that is the naughtiest burger site on the internet. PORNBURGER

  • Chrysler Orders Original Dodge Vipers To Be Destroyed [2 Videos]

    93 first-generation Vipers have been ordered to be destroyed by Chrysler. The preproduction cars were donated to schools to be used for auto shop classes, but somehow two of the not street-legal cars, lacking emission controls or speed-limiters, made it onto public roads and were involved in accidents. Since Chrysler still owns the cars, they were held liable for the accidents. Now Chrysler’s lawyers are demanding the other cars, worth upwards of $250,000, destroyed all because of the actions of a couple of morons. Good work, guys! That’s why you can’t have nice things.

  • Computer Vision Syndrome And You [Video]

  • Beautifully Bizarre Underwater Creatures [18 Photos]

    Russian photographer Alexander Semenov has traveled all over the world, spending hours and hours diving in order to capture these bizarre sea creatures on film. He’s photographed all manner of jellyfish, marine worms, sea butterflies (a type of swimming sea snail), and sea angels (swimming sea slugs). The 29-year-old wants his photography to reveal the beauty of underwater life. That’s fine and I can appreciate that, just keep them away from me. Especially those Lion’s Mane Jellyfish, they look nasty. Also, check out more of Alexander Semenov’s work at Flickr.

  • Bringing Skateboarding To Afghanistan [15 Photos]

    For the past five years, Skateistan has been dedicated to bringing skateboarding to war-torn Afghanistan. The charity opened their first skatepark in Kabul in 2009 after Australian research Oliver Percovich noticed a crowd of young Afghanis entranced with his skateboarding. Over 400 children in Kabul now visit the skatepark weekly, and with interest growing, Skateistan decided to grow with it. The second facility, pictured below, was opened last year in Mazar-e-Sharif. The new compound, when completed, will feature a skatepark, educaiton center, and sports hall. In addition to the recreational aspect, Skateistan also employs Afghanis as instructors and crew members, offering a new source of revenue in places where gainful employment can be scarce. There have been some issues along the way with culture clashes, but Skateistan has no intention of being scared off. It’s honorable to see people making so much good of a tough situation. Keep up with the charity’s future plans and see what you can do to help at Skateistan. 

  • When Playing With Your Food Becomes Art [37 Photos]

    Obviously nobody ever told Victor Nunes not to play with his food, and that’s a damn good thing. Apparently Nunes has the ability to see faces in everything he comes across, including bananas, bread, sugar, and folded up towels. I once drew a smiley face on my hamburger using ketchup. If these aren’t enough to make you feel bad about your lack of talent, check out Victor Nunes on Facebook where he has over a thousand photos of his incredible art. But seriously, using sugar spread out on a table for your art? Does he want ants? Because that’s how we get ants. 

  • First Trailer for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For”

    Th long awaited follow-up to 2005’s “Sin City” is set to be released on August 22. The first trailer is now out and “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” is looking even more stylish than the original. Many actors from the original are returning, such as Mickey Rourke, Powers Boothe, and Jessica Alba (thank God), and they will be joined by plenty of actors new to the series such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, and Eva Green (thank God). 

  • Badly Drawn Seinfeld

    Sean Ryan is great at drawing badly. Below are his Seinfeld characters, but his talent (or lack thereof) isn’t just limited to the greatest TV show of all time. He also has plenty of bad drawings of famous writers and every footballer from the Merlin 94 Premier League Sticker Book. As good as those others are, we like the Seinfeld drawings most. Really, they’re not even that bad. They look like characters on a hip 90s cable cartoon, like “Duckman” or “Dr. Katz.” See the rest of Sean Ryan’s bad drawings at his Tumblr. 

  • Science: El Niño Has A 50% Chance Of Making a Comeback This Summer

    There is a 50% chance that El Niño will arrive in full-force this summer bringing with it temperatures that scientists are saying could be “in near record-breaking territory.” El Niño, the weather phenomenon brought on by the warming of the Pacific Ocean, may be making a comeback this summer, leading to warmer temperatures but also rainier weather. NOAA released a report giving El Niño a 50 percent chance of developing this summer or fall, which could bring the U.S. a much milder winter next year, a relief after the recent bitter cold. Meteorologists say El Niño’s arrival may lead to fewer Atlantic hurricanes and seriously benefit parts of California and the southwestern United States, both suffering from terrible droughts. But it could also lead to potential losses in food crops and a much hotter year across the globe. So after never being able to go outside during the freezing winter, you won’t be able to stand the outdoors in the summer either. Via: NY Mag

  • Ecuadorian Bachelor Pad Made From Steel [22 Photos]

    Architects José María Sáez and Daniel Moreno Flores constructed the Algarrobos House in 2011 in Ecuador using steel. 8 identical 18 meter long steel beams placed along the x y z axis frame the house. Identical wood pieces fill in the area and the repetition dilutes the structure so as not to take away from its surroundings. Giant glass panes, many of them movable, complete the structure and offer fantastic panoramas. Reflecting pools on the metal roof truly reflect by mirroring the surrounding landscape. The abstract form is at once a jarring sight in the setting while somehow managing to blend in.
