  • “House of Cards” Could Be Locked For A Third Season

    Remember when “House of Cards” was believed to be only 2 seasons and lots of critics and fans were very accepting of that fact so as to get a complete story without any jumping of the shark? Well Netflix is now saying that was never their intention and talks for more seasons are moving along. Will Netflix ruin the integrity of their shows by being just as greedy and stretching them out as long as possible just like the television networks? Will we keep watching while complaining? Stay tuned…

  • Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboot

    The Nike Lunar LDV SneakerBoot updates a pioneering long distance runner from the 1970s with plush Nike Lunarlon cushioning and a more aggressive Waffle traction system. The ankle collar gives this silhouette a fresh dynamic, and the reflective mesh underlay shines through the laser cut upper, giving this outdoor-inspired remix the capabilities to go the distance like never before.

  • Prohibition’s Unintended Consequences [Infographic]

    The 13 years of Prohibition were some of the worst this country has seen in terms of crime and corruption. Not to mention it was tough to find an affordable drink. Learn all about the problems that arose from this dark era so you can tear apart the arguments of any teetotalers. Then celebrate your newfound knowledge with a drink, just because you can, dammit.  

  • Ryse: Son of Rome is on a Mission to Recruit Every Man on Earth to Play

    The XBox One platform is just about set for release and like an angry bull in a stable is ready for the rodeo. Ryse: Son of Rome is probably their most anticipated game, a third-person action game, telling the story of Marius Titus who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarians. Hell bent on revenge, Marius joins and climbs the ranks of the Roman army and quickly earns the title of general. Essentially you’re Russell Crow in Gladiator with an XBox controller instead of a sword. The game play looks easy and adjustable polished with mind blowing graphics and shadows across a vast map. Here are some promo and game play videos to give you a taste of the work that went into production.

  • How X-Games Champ Missy Giove Went From Gold To Trafficking Marijuana

    What do you do when you have tons of medical bills and you didn’t plan for an early retirement when you were an X Games superstar? Transport and sell hundreds of pounds of marijuana, of course! That’s the path mountain biker Missy Giove took at least. And she would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for those meddling DEA agents.

  • Top 11 Most Anticipated Games For Late 2013 and 2014

    With the  release of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One coming in November, anticipation is beginning to mount among gamers across the world. Late 2013 and early 2014 will see the release of several games that will render the seventh generation of gaming as a distant memory. With the holiday season and the New Year on the horizon, game shopping can be slightly overwhelming. Luckily, RSVLTS is here to provide a list of the ten most anticipated games for the remainder of 2013 and for the entirety 2014.

  • Batman vs Superman: Gotham City U vs Metropolis State Football Scene

    The anticipated release for the Bat-ffleck filled Batman vs Superman movie is still two years away, but footage of a recently leaked video was revealed least week showing Gotham City University taking on rival, Metropolis State University in a college football match up. Not much else is known about the scene except it was filmed at Weingart Stadium in Los Angeles and from the looks of it, Under Armour is continuing it’s role as the official football sponsor of DC movies as we saw in The Dark Knight Rises. Here is a look at the uniforms worn and video of some set plays of the two teams going at it.

  • This Week in Coming Attractions (Movie Trailer Tuesday)

    With the summer blockbusters good and gone, there are a few movies that keep us trekking through the wintery cold into theaters during the next few indoor hibernation months, but we all know it’s mostly for the coming attractions. Here are five new trailers for upcoming films we’re particularly psyched out of our minds about (yes, that was a Dinklage reference as he makes a cameo in one of the trailers.) X-Men: Days of Futures Past The X-Men take on issues from, you guessed it Futures Past. Hugh Jackman is jacked, Patrick Stewart is bald and Jennifer Laurence does some breakdancing in a tight blue costume. Recipe for silver screen success. 47 Ronin It’s the Matrix meets Last Samurai. Exactly that. Mindscape “American Horror Story’s” Taissa Farmiga, Mark Strong and Brian Cox in a film,about a man with the ability to enter people’s memories. He takes on the case of a brilliant, troubled sixteen-year-old girl to determine whether she is a sociopath or a victim of trauma.

  • Goodbye Cruel World: Sun Will End Earthly Life in 2.8 Billion Years

    Well, it was fun while it lasted, but now those buzzkill eggheads at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have gone and figured out that life on Earth will end in 2.8 billion years. It’s probably for the best, considering that the sun will engulf us as a giant red star in just 5 billion years anyway. I guess I won’t be opening that retirement account now. It just all seems so pointless.

  • The Best (Or Worst) Custom License Plates [35 Photos]

    Remember when you were a kid and it was so much fun to type “80085″ on your calculator? Making a funny license plate is like the adult version of that, except it costs money and you have to be clever enough to get past the goons at the DMV decency squad. Some are clever, some are funny, some are just disgusting, but you’ve got to admire people willing to pay $50 or more for something that does little more than elicit a chuckle from an observant fellow driver every now and then. 

  • The 9 Greatest Sideline Meltdowns In NFL History

    The advent of nationally televised sporting events has given spectators an enhanced look into the happenings of an NFL sideline—some of which are publicized to the organization’s chagrin. With Dez Bryant’s recent sideline ranting, it left RSVLTS thinking about some of the more notable, ugly, or otherwise animated sideline spats, tirades, and incidents that were worthy of a countdown list.

  • The North Face Team USA Freeskiing Winter Olympic Uniform Drop Party

    The North Face invited us out to their USA team free skiing uniform drop for the 2013 Sochi Winter Olympics. Having free reign of the event to basically do what ever we wanted, we took advantage by indulging in the finer things in life, which included a plethora of  Mac & Cheese, more than a few Heinekens, some spiked snow cones and good times with American Olympic heroes Tom Wallisch, John Teller, and Nick Martini, free skiing stars who will be representing the United States at the Olympics. John with COED Ned pointing out the sheer awesomeness of his winter-beard. Conrad Anker. Read about him. Possibly the most decorated American climber of the last half century. His adventures are legendary, on one of his Everest climbs he found he found the body of legendary missing climber George Mallory. While you’re eating cheese dip on your couch, he’s climbing Mt. Everest without an oxygen tank. No seriously, he did that. Look at that intensity stare. The star on the inside of every athletes jacket is made of a piece of fabric worn by Anker on an ascent to the top of Everest. Think about that for motivation.

  • Never Get Caught Taking Inappropriate Pictures Thanks To The Neurocam [Video]

    Just think of all the photo opportunities you miss out on everyday because you cannot get your phone out in time. Or maybe it’s because you don’t want to look like a creep taking pictures of that bartender who makes sure to casually mention her boyfriend every time you see her but she didn’t charge you for a beer that one time so maybe she is interested after all. Or something. Anyway, with the Neurocam a brain sensor knows when you want to take a picture and activates the camera on your iPhone. Unfortunately, everything is strapped to your head. If these catch on, I imagine seeing a lot more people wearing hoodies around the city.

  • Super Storm Sandy in Hoboken: Then and Now Photos [RSVLTS Original]

    It’s been one year since Hoboken was devastated by Superstorm Sandy. One of the most popular stories in RSVLTS.com history was A First Look At Hurricane Sandy’s Destruction of Hoboken, NJ [70 HQ Photos]. The story captured the chaos and confusion that followed in the days post Superstorm. We were contacted by teachers, museums and news sources looking to use pictures featured in the story to educate students and the public across the country looking for a first hand encounter. View the map we used to shoot the photos >> Hard to believe the storm hit one year ago across the North East. After the destruction struck so close to our homes and offices, we saw the devistation and the process of progress in what seemed  like a seamless transition, thanks to help of first responders, volunteers and the National Guard. Today we attempted to shoot the same iconic photos on the streets of Hoboken to recreate several of those pictures to show how the Mile Square has rebuilt in the past year. The top photo will be the before, showing Hoboken during or just after the storm and the bottom photo will be the picture we shot on October more »

  • Beers of the World Map

    You might be familiar with Budweiser and Guinness, the popular beer brands of the USA and Ireland, respectively. What about the countries of India, Egypt, or Australia? Did you know a popular beer brand in the UK is “Bass”? Or that the beer brand most associated with China is known as “Boxing Cat”? This intricate infographic by Great Clubs features the most popular beer brands from around the world.

  • The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams (Book)

    Williams was the best hitter to every play the game. His 1941 .406 batting average has not and may never be topped again. Even after an era plagued with the PEDs, Williams record remained in tact. Want to feel even more minuscule about yourself, Williams 500+ home runs would have been even higher if not for his nearly five year baseball hiatus in the prime of his career to serve as a Marine pilot in WWII and Korea. Born in 1918 in San Diego, Ted would spend most of his life disguising his Mexican heritage. During his 22 years with the Boston Red Sox, Williams electrified crowds across America–and shocked them, too: His notorious clashes with the press and fans threatened his reputation. Yet while he was a God in the batter’s box, he was profoundly human once he stepped away from the plate. His ferocity came to define his troubled domestic life. While baseball might have been straightforward for Ted Williams, life was not. THE KID is biography of the highest literary order, a thrilling and honest account of a legend in all his glory and human complexity. In his final at-bat, Williams hit a home run. Bradlee’s marvelous book clears the more »

  • Tales From The Graveyard Shift [Infographic]

    This Halloween, why not salute those zombie-like weirdos that work the graveyard shift by learning a little bit about them. After all, it’s easier than trying to talk to them about what they do. All kidding aside, as someone who has worked nonstandard hours, I feel as though the greatest plus has been ignored in this graphic. For as great as it is to spend more time with your family or run errands, nothing beats being able to take full advantage of daytime happy hours at empty bars during the time when all the “normal” people are toiling away at work.

  • 1920s Mugshots Were Incredible Works Of Art [36 Photos]

    As our favorite celebrity mugshots proved, these days even the rich and famous look awful when they get arrested. But back in 1920s it seemed as though nobody would be caught dead committing crimes if not in their Sunday best. Maybe it’s the suits, maybe it’s the black and white photography, but something about this assortment of violent murderers and thieves just screams “class.”

  • Video Stores Explained To Modern Kids [Video]

    BuzzFeed has put together this short to teach the youth and remind the rest of us all about those dark ages when we had to leave our houses for entertainment. Some may be nostalgic but don’t forget how frustrating it could be when you’d get there and all 8000 copies of the newest release were already rented out. And those new releases weren’t cheap and you’d have very little time to watch them. You get a whole month of Netflix for the cost of a couple 1-night new release rentals. You know what? I’m happy they’re gone. Good riddance to a horrible business model. Book stores and record shops, I’ve got my eye on you next.

  • 17 New Ways To Make Your LinkedIn Profile Irresistible To Employers

    Are Mom and Dad starting to leave subtle hints that they want you out of their house (newspapers with circle classified ads, changed deadbolts, etc.)? Maybe you should get a job, you bum. It’s tough out there, but why not get an edge over the competition by finally using that LinkedIn profile you’ve done absolutely nothing with for years? Put these 17 tips to use and you’ll be off the dole (and your parents’ couch) in no time!

  • Greatest Halloween Prank Of All-Time [Video]

    Just in time for Halloween, prankster Tom Mabe uses a remote controlled aircraft made up to look like the grim reaper to fly over and terrorize a bunch of scaredy cats in Louisville, Kentucky. In all honesty, the grim reaper get-up doesn’t even seem all that necessary. If something swoops down from 200 feet above me and follows me around, I’ll be scared even if it’s made up to look like the Snuggles bear. Possibly even more so. No matter what, with over 2 million hits, this may be THE viral video of the season.

  • You May Be Hipster, But You Will Never Be This Hipster [72 Photos]

    The hipster is an interesting creature. Despite buying every product Apple puts out, they eschew many modern conveniences and choose to use inefficient devices like mechanical typewriters and penny-farthings (those bikes with the big wheels that were passe 120 years ago). They also put style before utility, wearing layers and layers of thrift store clothing and even donning scarves in the summer. All that’s missing from these photos is a hipster hunting with a blunderbuss which is probably only hard to find because I think most of them are vegans.

  • 10 Amazing Facts About The Simpsons

    America’s favorite family is in it’s 25th season and it shows no signs of slowing down. Through the years The simpsons have made TV history as the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series. Even with that there are still many things about the series it’s fanbase is unaware of. Here are 10 amazing facts you probably didn’t know about The Simpsons.

  • Stunning View of New Zealand As Seen From The Cockpit [Video]

    Check out this incredible view of Queenstown, New Zealand from a cockpit and see why Peter Jackson picked this fantastic country to film Lord of the Rings. With that being said, the music (Coldplay’s “Paradise”) takes away from the epic vista, so I suggest muting it and playing something more grandiose, like “Heart of the Sunrise” by Yes.

  • Bachelor Pad In Greece That WIll Have You Living A Life Of Leisure

    Today our Greek friends may be celebrating Oxi Day, but you’ll want to say “nai” to this bachelor pad (learn some Greek, I assure you it’s clever you cretins).  The Plane House by K Studio is located on Banana Beach on the Greek island of Skiathos. Taking total advantage of the geography, you can sunbathe on the deck or relax in the shade and let the breeze blowing over the perfectly placed pool cool you off. And with a 270 degree of the coast, it’s the perfect place to sip on an Ouzo and wonder what all the poor people are doing. 

  • Economists Say Reduce working week to 30 hours or die. Sort of.

    In a recent study, the UK based Telegraph says “A shorter working week would make us healthier, give us more fulfilling and sustainable lives and be better for the environment, economists have suggested.” Any young professional would not only chuckle, but bellow in laughter at the idea of a 30 hour work week, but economists say it’s possible. Cutting the amount of hours worked would greatly increase the quality of our well being, family life, friendships and communities. While the 30 hour week seems like a stretch by fantasies standards, with gradual changes to the labour market it’s foreseeable in the near future, says the NEF (New Economics Foundation). Companies should be encouraged to give workers more time off instead of pay rises, and entertain the thought of a four day work week, a practice that has seen much progress in the Netherlands. “Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany have shown it is possible to make changes like these without weakening their economies, the books claims. It adds: “Time spent providing unpaid care constitutes an important civic contribution that is often unrecognised. “A shorter working week would both ease the pressure on carers, most of whom are women, and enable their more »

  • Ohio State Marching Band Pulls off Epic Movie Montage

    The Ohio State University marching band has a reputation that precedes itself. Known for it’s elaborate halftime shows and illustrious themes the band has had a number of it’s performances go viral, including the most recent Micheal Jackson tribute. Well this might be better. A movie montage featuring characters from some of the greatest films with a synonymous soundtrack like Superman and Jurassic Park. It is about the music still isn’t it? Sort of. The music is great, but to pull of these steps alone would be a feat (get it?), let alone playing music while doing it.

  • AXE Hair’s #StyledInSeconds Photobooth Fun [41 Photos]

    On Monday night Ned from COED.com, Cass from Guyism.com, Steve from MadeMan.com and yours truly met up at Bounce Sporting Club (55 W 21st St, New York, NY 10010) where AXE Hair and their lovely celebrity stylist Natalia Bruschi (‏@NatiBru) showed us that it only takes a few seconds for guys to get the hair girls love with AXE Hair styling products. Natalia’s clients include some of the biggest names in Hollywood and I was told that my hair, see it in the GIFs below, looks very similar to Leo. Yes, Leo. I kinda see it. Once the pregame was over we boarded a party bus en route to MetLife Stadium for the ultimate Monday Night Football VIP experience that included a suite stocked with booze, food, and unlimited cookies. It was pretty damn incredible to say the least.
