    Guns replaced with Thumbs up is exactly what the gun control advocates need to invest in.

The hilarious mantra of the site that’s dedicated to taking our favorite action movies and recreating them in a positive you-can-do-it light makes our day that much better.

  • Florida Player Blocks Florida Player. Sums Up Dismal Season.

    To think Florida was a SEC powerhouse just a few years ago, now they’re losing to Georgia Southern and blocking each other. In a play that sums up their first losing season since 1979, the Florida Gators sealed their fate with a devastating loss. With an unfortunate record of 4-7 the Gators managed to allow Southern to score 26 points despite not COMPLETING ONE PASS. That’s right Southern managed to come away with 429 yards of total offense without a single completed pass. But I digress, here is a video of a couple of two confused Gainesville players blocking each other on offense, although the play ended up a success, the UF on UF block will go down symbolizing a dismal season for the Gators.

  • New York City in the ’80s Makes Me Happy I wasn’t in New York City in the ’80s

    New York’s Lower East Side did not look like a good time in the 80′s. This documentary style film from Kinolibrary Archive Film collections shows a tracking POV from side car window past run down buildings, graffitied walls and cars. Shops with shutters down, rough area, ghetto. Streets are almost empty, apocalyptic compared to NYC’s standards today. The areas that aren’t covered with abandon buildings covered in graffiti are open fields covered in rubbish and trash. Thank you Rudy Giuliani.

  • AOL’s Colossal CD Campaign [Infographic]

    Every 90s kid remembers the America Online CDs that came in the mail almost everyday, supplying us with a seemingly endless supply of flying discs of death to fling at each other. Apparently, there were people who actually used them for their intended purpose since AOL’s user base expanded from 200,000 to 25,000,000 during the campaign. Now they’re down to just 3.5 million subscribers, but somehow they added 200,000 dial-up users last year. Who are these people?

  • Kanye West Leaves Nike For Adidas [Video]

    After his performance at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West stopped by Hot 97 and talked with host Angie Martinez about his troubles with Nike. Apparently, Yeezy, the Great and Almighty, wanted royalties on the level of athletes like Michael Jordan. Nike refused, pointing out that Kanye is not a professional athlete, to which he replied “I go to the Garden and play one-on-no-one. I’m a performance athlete.” Now the creative genius says he will partner with Adidas for the next Yeezy shoe. What will the professional crybaby have a problem with next? Only time will tell. I give it until the afternoon before we hear about the next thing that bothers him.

  • 2013 Nike Army Navy Gameday Uniforms

    For the rivalry’s 114th matchup in history, Nike pays tribute to each academy’s rich heritage and drawing inspiration from key historical figures within each respective military branch.  The Army uniforms tribute the legacy of General Winfield Scott, nicknamed “Old Fuss and Feathers” for his insistence on maintaining proper military dress. Scott served as General in the U.S. military longer than any other. The Navy garb pays homage to the dying command of Captain James Lawrence: “Don’t Give Up the Ship.” Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry flew a flag emblazoned with the statement during the decisive Battle of Lake Erie, one of the biggest naval battles of the War of 1812. The 114th meeting between Army and Navy takes place on Dec. 14 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

The Face-O-Mat is just an MDF facade that Gutmann sits behind and looks through a window at his subject. His project proves that despite all the benefits technological advances afford us, there is no substitute for one-on-one interaction with another human being. Gutmann posts his Face-O-Mat portraits to a Tumblr page with their happy subjects and we have just a small sample of them below.

  • 852 Instagramers Unwittingly Contribute To Short Film [Video]

    Amsterdam art director Thomas Jullien used 852 photos on Instagram from 852 users to create this video that shows how similar we are when it comes to what sort of pictures we take. From France, to Australia, to New York, Jullien shows how artistic these photos are as part of a project when on their own many would dismiss them as just typical social media garbage. Will this usher in an era of movies crowdsourced from the seemingly infinite amount of material available on social media? Maybe, but it seems like a lot of work. We’ll leave it to Jullien for now.

  • Meme Alert: Birds With Arms [28 Photos]

    It’s a good thing that birds don’t have arms. If the imaginative photo manipulators at Reddit’s “birds…with arms” subreddit are right in their assumptions, then our winged friends would use their arms to smoke, drink, shoot firearms, and flip us the, um, bird. Of course, they would also be real funny to look at, which these pictures also prove.

And this revolution is one we can definitely get behind.

    Colorado news anchor Kyle Clark is sick and tired of viewers sending in pictures of their snow covered patio furniture every time it snows.

Or not, because this guy is pretty funny and I would like to hear his continued complaints.

  • Vertigo-Inducing Mirrored “Infinity Room” Is One Of NYC’s Most Buzzed About Art Installations [18 High Quality Photos]

    Long lines have been forming inside the David Zwirner gallery in New York City as visitors wait for their chance to stand inside one of eccentric Japanese artist Yoyoi Kusama’s vertigo-inducing “Infinity Rooms.” The installation’s mirror room, “Souls of Millions of Light Years Away,” is brilliantly simple – it’s a room in which the walls, the floor and the ceiling are mirrors. This seemingly infinite space is populated by hanging, blinking LEDs, which make the space seem like a galaxy or a nebula. Word of the art instillation, on display until December 21st, 2013, has gone viral in the city and lines can be up to several hours long. If you decide to check out the exhibit that will have you trying to wrap your mind around “infinity” just know that there will be a 40-second limit, yes you heard us right, on how long you can stand in the room.
