  • The many faces and films of Bill Murray

    Add “The Grand Buddapest Hotel”, Wes Anderson’s newest feature film, to the long list of accolades Bill “F*cking” Murray has under his belt.

  • 16 Home Theaters That Will Put you To Shame

    Think all you need for your home theater is a 60″ TV, a recliner, and a mini-fridge? Think again. These 16 home theaters incorporate elements from classic films like Batman, Star Wars, and Star Trek to create an experience before the movie even begins. Suddenly your wobbly coffee table and “Scarface” poster just don’t seem to cut it anymore. On a related note, I’ve decided to redecorate my home theater in homage to my favorite film, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The toilet in the bathroom adjacent to my den broke some weeks ago, and I’ve opted to not fix it, instead allowing the effluence to create an authentic New York underground ambiance.

  • Examining The Vocabulary Of Hip Hop Artists

    Shakespeare is often considered to have had the largest vocabulary ever, with 28,829 different words used throughout his entire body of work. But how does that number compare with various hip hop artists? New York City-based designer, coder, and data scientist Matt Daniels wanted to find out. He examined 35,000 lyrics from different hip hop artists (about 3-5 albums worth of material) and compared their vocabularies with 35,000 words of Shakespeare from 7 different plays and the first 35,000 words in Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.” The results are pretty incredible, and people who have little knowledge of the genre may come away with a newfound appreciation. Check out the interactive infographic and see how your favorite artists compare at The Largest Vocabulary in Hip Hop.

  • NASA Crowd Sourced Their New Z-2 Space-suit of the Future

    NASA left the design of their new space suit up to the internet. Giving the public three choices to choose from, NASA left the fate of the space-fashion in the hands of voters. With over 150,000 votes the internet chose wisely. Of the three options; “Biomimicry”, “Trends in Society” and “Technology”, “Technology” won. “”Technology” pays homage to spacesuit achievements of the past while incorporating subtle elements of the future. By using Luminex wire and light-emitting patches, this design puts a new spin on spacewalking standards such as ways to identify crew members. ” The suits have vibrant electroluminescent wire and patches across the upper and lower torso, exposed rotating bearings, collapsing pleats for mobility and highlighted movement and will be a more bearable suit for astronauts to weather the elements of the red planet, NASA’s next projected landing course for humans. Traversing Mars will be unlike any other environment NASA’s current suits have endured, which is why their Z-2 suit, will have a more durable surface for tough walk missions. Stay up to date on production at NASA.

  • If Wes Anderson Made A Porno, It Would Be Beautiful [Video]

    Being a pure young man, devoted to Bible study and needlepoint (it keeps down the urges), I have absolutely no knowledge of pornographic films. But from what I gather through overhearing conversations between salty sailor-types, the factory system of adult cinema leaves very little room for auteurship. But what if highly stylized directors like Wes Anderson were to make pornos? We’d probably get something like this video from Nacho Punch, sure to win the Hairy Palm d’Or at Cannes.

  • Animated Movie Posters Are The Future Of Advertising [20 GIFs]

    In the future, when we are finally rid of paper and using digital screens for all our magazines (such as RSVLTS Magazine) and newspapers, we will be able to have animated movie poster advertisements such as these. Movie theaters would probably opt for sharp LCD screens over paper posters that nasty kids draw “peepees” on, too. Unfortunately the future has yet to arrive in the present and we still have have boring old paper ads that nobody cares about. At least we know that when the future arrives and the present is past, there are already artists available to animate our movie posters.

  • Class Up Your Derby Party With These Bulleit Cocktails

    The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow and even if you know nothing about horse racing, it’s a great excuse to throw a party. But what do you do if, instead of being a Southern gentleman, you’re a just a simple Jersey jamoke who wouldn’t know the finest seersucker from outlet mall nearsucker? Luckily, Bulleit Bourbon enlisted the aid of master mixologist Dale DeGroff, aka King Cocktail, to teach us Yanks all about that classic Derby cocktail, the Mint Julep. The first two recipes, an antebellum Mint Julep 1862 and Whiskey Smash, were adapted by Dale from “How to Mix Drinks,” an 1862 drink recipe book by Jerry Thomas which is one of the most well-known bartenders’ guides ever published. The final drink, a Modern Mint Julep, is Dale DeGroff’s updated take on the classic cocktail using Bulleit Bourbon for a less sweet and more whiskey-spiced experience. Whichever you choose, all three will be sure to keep the vapors away. So what are you waiting for? Put on your white suit or big dress and even bigger hat and get your Derby on!

  • 17 Terrifying Masked Monkeys To Ruin Your Friday

    Finnish photographer Perttu Saksa was traveling in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2012 when he first saw the masked macaque monkeys that were forced into performing on the street for money. The “monkey masters” who keep the macaques dress them in doll masks and children’s clothes to make them appear fun and playful, but in Saksa’s eyes they are anything but. His series, “A Kind of You,” collects the most chilling portraits of the monkeys. Thankfully, Saksa isn’t the only one to take pity on the monkey performers.
