  • Mogwai’s Whiskey And Other Odd Celebrity Endorsed Spirits

    To coincide with the release of their new album “Rave Tapes,” Scottish band Mogwai decided to release their own brand of whiskey. Makes sense, right? Of course not. But this certainly isn’t the first time celebrities have slapped their names on booze to increase the price tag and stuff their coffers. Here are some of our favorite celebrity endorsed spirits from over the year. The name’s attached certainly don’t up the quality of the drinks, but the novelty value is priceless.

  • More NFL Bad Lip Reading [Video]

    BadLipReading takes on the NFL again, just in time for the Super Bowl. There’s some real good ones this time around, especially the nonsense spouted by 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Hopefully he’ll be just as entertaining next Sunday. Pro tip: make sure you have closed captioning on so you don’t miss any of the hilarity.

  • Awesome Crony Capitalism Toy Commercial For The Lil Libertarian [Video]

    I can’t be sure if these toys are real or not, although their is a website that says they’ll be available soon, but there is no denying how awesome this commercial is. It’s just like the toy/cartoon commercials of our youth but with an obvious political message. Actually, if you think about it, it’s sort of like glorifying the villains in Captain Planet. I don’t know about you, but after watching this I’m ready to stifle entrepreneurship and get konnected with the Kronies!

It was an emotional victory, but just deserved after a tremendous first run that sealed his fate on top. Watch the run here

  • Photos From The First Winter Olympics 90 Years Ago

    This week marks the 90th anniversary of the first Winter Olympics held in Chamonix, France in 1924. 16 nations competed in 16 events from 6 sports. Norway was the clear winner with 17 medals, while the US finished third with just 4 medals and only 1 gold. Later that year, the Summer Olympic Games were held in Paris, beginning the tradition of holding both games in the same year which continued for another 70 years. The lack of safety gear makes these games look pretty exciting. Bobsledding in a wool sweater and a hat? Sounds like fun!

  • NYC Snowstorm From MTA’s Point Of View [15 Photos]

    The New York City MTA has one of the greatest flickr accounts and we’ve often shared their pictures with you. With another snowstorm hitting NYC earlier this week, the MTA sent out their photographers to document the hard work of the employees who keep the trains and buses running regularly. We thought we’d share these shots so you can see the hard work these folks do and also because the Hurricane Jet Snow Blower clearing the track in the Coney Island Yard is pretty awesome.

  • Thierry Cohen’s Darkened Cities [15 Photos]

    Photographer Thierry Cohen, who’s been working professionally since 1985, is considered a pioneer in the field of digital photography. Beginning in 2010, he’s been focusing all of his attention on his series “Villes Enteintes,” or darkened cities. For the project, he photographs famous cities, meticulously documenting the precise time, angle, latitude, and longitude of each shot. He then calculates exactly where and when he can find that same night sky in a light pollution free spot on Earth, such as the Mojave or Sahara deserts. The result is a composite of the two images, with the cities darkened so we can get a glimpse of exactly how the night sky would look without light pollution.

  • “Her” Trailer Plus Philip Seymour Hoffman [Video]

    Richard Trammell is quickly becoming quite the viral video celebrity thanks to his expert editing that changes the way we look at classic films. For his latest video, he’s taken on the sappy trailer for Spike Jonze’s “Her” and replaced Scarlett Johansson’s voice with that of Philip Seymour Hoffman. The result is funny and incredibly creepy at times. It’s also a movie I’d want to see a lot more than “Her.”

  • Comparing Jonah Hill’s Salary With Other Hollywood Sidekicks

    Poor Jonah Hill. He wanted to work with Martin Scorsese so bad on “Wolf of Wall Street” that he accepted the Screen Actor’s Guild minimum for his pay. The budget is estimated at somewhere around $100 million, so Jonah’s pay amounts to pretty much nothing. Don’t get me wrong, I’d gladly violate myself onscreen for such an amount, but I’m no Jonah Hill. So how much did he get screwed over? Let’s take a look at the salaries of some other movie sidekicks.

  • Arnold’s Gym Trainer Video Sweeps the U.S. Except for One Place, Because Mississippi

    According to YouTube Trends the Arnold Schwarzenegger Gold’s Gym trainer video has spiraled out of control. Dominating views in nearly every region of the country. All except Lafayette, IN, Harrisonburg, VA and Meridian, MS. Not surprising, right? When a new viral video featuring a celebrity of Arnold proportions reveals itself, that’s a recipe for YouTube Gold. Now two of the three regions excluded are Lafayette, In, the location of Purdue University, hence the video trending in that region deals with the recent shooting at the University. The other, a JMU Fraternity Rush video in Harrisonburg, VA. Makes sense so far, right? Then we travel down to Meridian, MS, where the trending video of the moment is “Mississippi Woman Gives Stripper Head on Stage” Can’t help but SMH at Mississippi. Stay Classy, Meridian.

  • Entourage The Movie Yacht Party In South Beach! 32 Behind The Scenes Photos

    Filming of Entourage the Movie is in full swing and this past weekend Vinny Chase and the boys hit South Beach to shoot the opening scenes of the anticipated film. In typical Entourage fashion Doug Ellin, the creator of the show, rented a 160 foot super yacht named “Blind Date,” which features a large sun deck, five state rooms and a seven person hot tub, to shoot the opening scenes. In addition to all these incredible yacht amenities he added a dozen of the most beautiful women Miami has to offer, including one of our favorites Nina Agdal. We tracked down some behind the scenes photos from the shoot for you to see how it all went down.

  • Motorhead’s Lemmy Roars Again [Link]

    One of the biggest surprises of the Coachella lineup this year was the announcement that Motorhead would play the festival. Last year Lemmy Kilmister, the 67-year-old frontman for the metal band, canceled touring due to health reasons. It looked as if his hard living, which included a steady diet of speed and booze, had finally caught up with him. Rolling Stone recently caught up with the iconic bass player and it sounds as if the Lemmy we all know and love is back, albeit with a few less vices. 

  • Super Bowl Ticket Price Infographic

    Plan on heading to scenic East Rutherford, New Jersey for the Super Bowl? If this infographic is any indication, you may want to head to your local bank or credit union (or Amscot, I won’t judge) and get yourself a not so small loan. Also, pack a sweater, because this isn’t just one of the most costly Super Bowls to attend, it’s also really, really, cold! Sounds enjoyable, right?

  • The History of The Winter Olympics Logo

Each year the Olympics are held a definitive logo is created to market the games. Here is every Winter Olympic logo ever made. 

  • USA’s Opening Ceremony sweaters are Ameritastic

    The U.S. Winter Olympic opening ceremony uniforms have been unveiled and they’re a wonderful conglomerate  of an ugly Christmas sweater and an ironic ‘Murica 4th of July shirt, with what looks like a pair of good ol’ fashioned American sweatpants. Let’s not forget the turtleneck underneath. Yeah, sure. You can say they’re ugly, you can even say they’re awful, but we at the Roosevelts respect the uniforms. In all their awfully awesome glory. They’re fun, there loud and they scream America as though from the top of the Rockies holding a baby bald eagle in one hand and drinking a glass of bourbon in the other. Own your own for the very American price of $598. .@juliechu13 in the Opening Ceremony uniforms which are being unveiled right now on @TODAYshow #GoTeamUSA pic.twitter.com/ie5EwCq7l9 — US Olympic Team (@USOlympic) January 23, 2014 Thank You @RalphLauren & @DavidLauren For Showing Us The #Sochi2014 #TeamUSA Uniforms! pic.twitter.com/sJnqmoielq — TODAY (@TODAYshow) January 23, 2014

  • A Guide To American Football [Video]

    You bought an officially licensed jersey to wear. You looked up instructions on making one of those football stadiums built entirely of cold cuts and condiments. You have two fridges filled with both kinds of beer (light and full flavor(?)). You have a football to fumble around with nervously while watching the game. You are ready for the Super Bowl. Wait…you don’t know anything about how the game is played? Check out this video and brush up on the basics so that when you’re friends come over, you’ll have more to talk to them about than the commercials. With GoDaddy opting for a more mature image without scantily clad women, you might as well pay attention to the game.

  • The 12 Biggest Contracts in MLB History

    At one point in time the big, long and ridiculously money driven contracts in professional sports were few and far between. These contracts were generally only given to the guy everyone considered a “once in a generation” type player. That was until Alex Rodriguez and the Texas Rangers changed the blueprint for long-term contracts in Major League Baseball. Today, contracts of great length and dollar amounts are signed on a regular basis and in lure of the huge contracts signed this off-season, the Roosevelt’s takes a look through history and count down the top 10 biggest contracts in MLB history. Brace yourself; some of these may make you want to change your profession.

  • Yuengling Beer + Ice Cream? Yes, Please!

    Back during the dark, sad days of prohibition, Yuengling brewing company, the oldest in the United States, began operating an ice cream business. The ice cream was a hit and even after the end of prohibition in December, 1933, Yuengling’s Ice Cream continued production. But then in 1985, Yuengling broke the hearts of dessert lovers when they ceased production. After almost 30 years of public demand, Yuengling has begun production and plans on having the ice cream back in stores in February. With 10 different flavors to choose from, such as Mint Chocolate Chip, Root Beer Float, and Chocolate Marshmallow, there’s something for everyone. Sorry beer lovers, the Black & Tan flavor is actually made with chocolate and caramel rather than the alcoholic lager and porter combination the name implies. But really, that’s probably for the best. For more info and to see if it’s available near you, check out Yuengling’s Ice Cream.
