  • Yelp Launches A Wildly Accurate “Hipster Heatmap” For 14 Major Cities

    Yelp has launched the “Yelp Wordmap,” a heatmap showing the density of various words used in over 39 million Yelp reviews in 14 popular cities. It’s a very handy tool for finding outdoor seating, bacon, cocktails and… best of all, an incredibly accurate heatmap of where all the mustache loving, scarf wearing, PBR drinking hipsters live in 14 major cities across the globe. Looks like our homebase of Jersey City, NJ made the map with a small but every expanding red blob. For better or worse the hipster revolution is coming.

  • The Largest Building in the World is Open for Business

    500 meters long, 400 meters wide and 100 meters high, the 1.7-million-square-meter mega-structure is capable of housing 20 Sydney Opera Houses and almost three times the size of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Just what’s inside this mammoth building anyway? The New Century Global Center is the “largest freestanding building in the world,” Chinese officials say and it is now home to business offices, hotels, movie theaters, shopping malls, a faux Mediterranean village and a water park. The building opened it’s door on June 28th and is located in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in southwestern China with a population of over 14 million.

  • Man Show Reunion: Adam Carolla Shows Up on Kimmel

    Pod cast king, Adam Carolla made an appearance on Kimmel last night for a nice little blast from the past reunion of ‘The Man Show’. Remember? That show that was on 20 years ago, where hosts, Kimmel and Carolla used to touch on topics you could only talk about in the sanctity of a man-cave or in a garage fixing up the red dragon. Then they would close with girls jumping on trampolines. For me it was 26 minutes of issues I wouldn’t understand and 1 closing minute that would define me as a man. There hasn’t since been a more bluntly executed minute of simplistic brilliance than girls jumping on trampolines, but I digress, it was a pleasure to see Kimmel’s quick wit and Carolla’s inate ability to rant about pretty much anything back together for a harmony from a decade ago. Carolla has a new film coming out dubbed ‘Road Hard’ about his ‘Pirate Ship’ pod cast, staring him and funded by the public on Fundanything. The more you donate the sweeter the pot gets. Take a look.

Hashtags that say ‘#murica’ or ‘#back2backworldwarchamps’ are sure to be trending by early afternoon and who are we kidding. We’re guilty of loving the country so much it’s almost ironic too.

So tomorrow in between two swigs of whiskey and Budweiser let your peers know that the youngest person to sign The Declaration of Independence was only 26 or that George Washington gave out double ratons of rum to celebrate the Fourth in 1778.

  • 5 Bourbon/Whiskeys To Pass Around on the 4th of July

  • The Great Gatsby VFX Reel Will Blow Your Mind

    Chris Godfrey, the VFX supervisor on ‘Gatsby’ released this visual effects reel, director, Baz signed off on. The reel consists of real time ‘before and after’ shots that slide seamlessly from studio to finish product shot, giving the viewer a thorough idea just how much the film was crutched by VFX. It’s almost as shocking to see the environments created around the actor, as the actors ability to execute the shots with nothing around them, but a blue canvas. That’s Hollywood for ya.

  • The 15 Best American Made Supermodels

A centerfold here, a bikini shoot there, but I digress. Here are the ‘The 15  Best American Made Supermodels’.

  • Japan’s Abandon ‘Battleship Island’ is Explored by Google Maps

    A small island off the coast of Nagasaki Prefecture, Hashima was populated from the late 19th century to the 1970s as a coal mining facility. The island was then abandon, closing out all access to the public until late 2009, and then now opened up to Google Trekker and the Maps Team. In the most recent Bond film, Skyfall, 007 is taken to an uninhabited, abandon island similar ro Hashima, which was actually the inspiration for the villans secret hideout. With the help of the Nagasaki goverment, Google gained access to even the territories blocked off to tourists. Look closely and you can even get a glimpse of abandon technology, bottles and old TV’s.

  • The 10 Most Bizarre Trades In Sports History

    Trades are often some of the most rumored and speculated occurrences in all of professional sports. People’s minds are often littered with images of what the discussed player would look like in a different team’s uniform. But, some trades in sports history are something of an oddity. Whether a player is traded for himself, an inanimate object, a seemingly oversized bounty, or in the presence of sheer spite, all of the completed trades on this list stand out in athletic history as thoroughly bizarre.

  • Top 5 Speeches From Fictional American Presidents in Movies

    In the crazy mixed up world we live in, fiction many times takes precedent over non-fiction. The grey area can sometimes even confuse the history of the world with fantasy. We’d like to think… Well we hope to think we can distinguish the two and commemorate great speeches made by fictional American Presidents. Now we know none of these speeches can compare to the eloquence of The Gettysburg Address or the courage of Teddy’s Milwaukee speech minutes after an assassination attempt left him wounded by a gun shot. These fictional speeches by actors live on in the distance of JFK’s Moon speech or LBJ’s address on equal rights, but in the generation we live in some of these speeches, ironically or not, have become more familiar than the great ones of our past leaders. We’re not trying to glorify them, more like ‘distinguish’ them from truth… And also expose the sheer awesomeness that are the Top 5 Speeches from Fictional American Presidents in Movies.

  • Junyong Pak Is The World’s Toughest Mudder

    At some point growing up, every boy dreams of becoming a tough-as-nails super soldier, like a Navy Seal or Green Beret. A child might fantasize about brutally exhausting training that molds him into an unstoppable force. But in most fantasies the warrior emerges from the training to go on and save damsels and nations; the reward is the heroics after, not the training itself. Junyong Pak, two time winner of the World’s Toughest Mudder, must somehow have gotten stuck in the “brutally exhausting training” part of that fantasy never to move on.
