  • Bruce Lee Revealed as Mystery Character in Upcoming UFC Video Game

    Last week EA teased the nation with a series of clues for a mystery fighter in their upcoming UFC game. GameStop stores hinted at the fighter with various teaser posters which ultimately spilled the beans. The most notable, a yellow poster with a verticle black stripe down the left side a piece of the iconic jumpsuit worn by Bruce Lee in “Game of Death” then brought back to life by Uma Thurman in “Kill Bill”. Dana White had this to say about the martial arts legend in an interview with Fight Times in 2004, “Actually, the father of mixed martial arts, if you will, was Bruce Lee. If you look at the way Bruce Lee trained, the way he fought, and many of the things he wrote, he said the perfect style was no style. You take a little something from everything. You take the good things from every different discipline, use what works, and you throw the rest away.” The game is set for release in Spring 2014 for the Xbox One and Playstation 4.

  • The Daily Schedules Of (Successful) Creative People [Infographic]

    Is there a perfect schedule to maximize one’s creative output? Probably not, if these varied schedules are of any indication. What’s more important is to probably just have a schedule in the first place. It’s interesting to note, too, that the notion of creative types being night owls who sleep in until the afternoon is not all that true. Most of these folks are up by 6 AM. So what’s your excuse?

  • American Food Aisles From Around The World [15 Photos]

    Go into pretty much any supermarket in America and you’ll find the “ethnic foods” aisle which undoubtedly stocks all sorts of Mexican food, and, depending on your neighborhood demographics, British, Indian, Korean, Estonian, etc. But if you go to another country will you find “American” food in a special aisle? Hell yeah, you will! And apparently American food to everyone else is either high sodium or high sugar junk food. It’s good to know that wherever you are in the world, you will be able to buy marshmallow fluff and peanut butter. What’s that, garcon? You want me to eat escar-huh? Ain’t that a snail? No thanks, dude, I got me some fluffernutters.

  • The Hottest Pictures On…eBay? [10 Photos]

    The secret of selling on eBay revealed! Other motorcycle part sellers hate him. What does “babenotincluded” do to make a ton of money on the auction site? It’s simple, really. All you need to be a successful seller is competitive pricing, accurate and detailed descriptions, pictures of the product from various angles, and barely-clothed babes handling your wares. And it really works! I don’t even own a motorcycle or know what any of this stuff is, but I’ve been ordering all morning. By the end of the day I’ll have enough stuff to open my own eBay store. Now I just need to get some models. Check out more great deals on motorcycle parts (and photos, if that’s you’re thing, you dirty devil you) at eBay.

  • Replace Your Gross Bath Towels With The Body Dryer

    Why did it take so long for this to be invented? We’ve been air drying our hands for years now, but when it comes to our bodies, we are still using stinky old bath towels. Finally, someone has figured out how to harness the power of air so we can dry our entire bodies after a shower. Sure, it’s great to not use towels from a sanitary standpoint because of all the bacteria, but the prospect of not having to wash towels all the time is even better! Also, there is a scale built in so you don’t have to worry about a bunch of devices crowding your bathroom floor. The Body Dryer team is still raising money for the initial run and you can contribute at Indiegogo. The device is expected to retail for $250 but early investors can secure one for just $150 or four for $425. What are you waiting for? Place your order and stick it to those fat cats at Big Towel.

  • Skydiver Nearly Gets Hit by a Meteor

    It was business as usual for Nowegian Anders Helstrup, jumping out of a plane, soaring through the air until he released his parachute. Helstrup was enjoying the air up there, when a basketball sized rock flew past him. A meteor soared past the skydiver at 300km/hr which in MPH is about a million we think. Around 500 meteorites reach the Earth’s surface each year, with many thousands more burning up before reaching the ground, so the chances of a skydiver seeing a meteor at this close of a proximity is about one in a quadrillion percent.

  • What If The Moon Was A Disco Ball? [Video]

    YouTube greats Vsauce, who makes fun AND informative science videos, and Yeti Dynamics, who makes all sorts of visual effects laden videos about space, have teamed up to answer the age old question, “What if the moon was a disco ball?” Initially, it’s not all that exciting, because it wouldn’t work the fun way we’d expect. But by moving the moon closer and allowing it to quickly rotate, all sorts of awesomeness starts to happen. So watch this video and try to learn a little something that you can share with your friends next time you’re drunk but get all the facts wrong with your inebriated recall.

  • 12 Rappers As 17th Century Paintings

    Ever wonder what your favorite rapper would look like as a 17th century painting? Probably not. That would be a weird thing to ponder.

  • Berlin Wall Graffiti In The 80s [12 Photos]

    Despite the tense political climate that literally divided the city, West Berlin was a destination for many artists and musicians in the 80s. French street artist Thierry Noir moved to the city in 1982 and became the first artist to use the Berlin Wall as a canvas when he began painting it on a whim in 1984. Noir spent 5 years covering the wall in bright imagery that was a stark contrast to the infamous wall separating democratic West Berlin and Communist East Berlin. The wall came down in 1989, and now, 25 years later, Thierry Noir is having his first solo exhibition at London’s Howard Griffin Gallery. Prints based on Noir’s Berlin Wall painting will be exhibited alongside photographs and video from his work in the 80s. For more info on Thierry Noir and the exhibit, check out the Howard Griffin Gallery.

  • Illustrating Tel Aviv’s Bauhaus Architecture

    Tel Aviv doesn’t often get the architectural recognition that it deserves. In fact, many people would be amazed to learn that the city is home to the largest number of buildings in the Bauhaus style, made popular in 1920s Germany. Tel Aviv-based designer Avner Gicelter wanted to share his love of his city’s architectural gems, so, following in the style of José Guízar’s “Windows of New York,” he created the “TLV Buildings” blog where every week a new illustration of an actual Tel Aviv building is posted. Over 20 buildings have been digitally represented so far, and Avner is showing no sign of slowing down. Also, be sure to check out more of Avner Gicelter’s work on Behance.
