  • Honest Posters For Best Picture Nominees [9 Photos]

    The nominees for the 86th annual Academy Awards have officially been announced and everyone feels compelled to check out the 9 Best Picture nominees. But those movies tend to be 2 hours at least and going to a theater that many times gets expensive. Thanks to College Humor, you’ll have no need to watch any of them! They’ve put together a series of honest posters that summarize the films perfectly, giving you more time to watch the incredible movies that the Academy passed over, such as Grown Ups 2 and After Earth.  No Best Actor nomination for Jaden Smith? He almost made you believe he was a living person at certain points!

  • Boring Eastern European Buildings Turned Into Works Of Art [15 Photos]

    Etam Cru, a joint effort between Polish artists Sainer and Bezt, are well known for their large scale murals that give new life to old buildings. Originally working around Eastern Europe, especially in their native Poland, they’ve since had works commissioned all over, even recently painting a mural in Richmond, Virginia. No matter where they’re located, Etam Cru’s enormous paintings invigorate their surroundings and make even the dreariest of structures into a destination. More of the duo’s surreal works can be viewed at Etam Cru.

  • Classic Paintings Come Alive In BEAUTY [Video]

    Milan-based experimental animator and director Rino Stefano Tagliafierro has released this incredible video that takes classic paintings form the likes of Bouguereau, Rubens, Vermeer, and Rembrandt and brings them to life through animation. Titled “BEAUTY,” the 9 minute short highlights the beauty that was such an integral part of these works from the masters of Renaissance, Pastoralism, Romanticism, and Neo-classicism. Animated GIFs taken from the video can also be found on the BEAUTY website, along with a list of the paintings used.

  • If Domestic Beer Commercials Were Honest [Video]

    I’ve got no problem with cheap domestic beer. I often choose to drink Schaefer, PBR, Schlitz, and others of their ilk, but this honest beer commercial from Random at Best is still pretty damn funny and accurate. I could go on and on about how much I enjoy the taste of Genesee Cream Ale (and I really do) but what it mostly comes down to is this: it costs $7 for a 12 pack and it gets me drunk. And now I’ve gone and made myself thirsty. Anyone want to grab a beer? Maybe something domestic?

  • Scott Hocking Documents Detroit’s Bad Graffiti [25 Photos]

    Scott Hocking, a photographer and artist from Detroit, has captured the amazing artwork of the unknown street Picasso’s around his city in his collection titled “Bad Graffiti.” Everyone pays attention to the Banksys of the world, but how often does someone champion the dude who paints crude genitalia on abandoned buildings? Or how about “free balls in your mouth” written in giant cursive letters? Not even Magritte is so brilliant! Looking through these, I have a newfound appreciation for whoever draws the horrific vaginas all over the benches in Jersey City’s Exchange Place. Also check out the rest of the collection and other work from Scott Hocking.

  • So NBA All-Star Jerseys Are Just T-Shirts Now

    The NBA All-Star jerseys have leaked and they are painful to look at. For better or worse the All-star game has become a full blown calamity. Players don’t play defense, the dunk contest stinks and now this. These terrible jerseys are everything that embodies a game players take for granted. The jerseys themselves aren’t necessarily ugly, but they’re far from nice and far from even looking like a basketball jersey. They’re stuck in a limbo of awfulness combined with a lazy design scheme. Shame on you NBA. Both jerseys feature a large Fleur de lis on the chest and uniform numbers on the left sleeve similar to the terrible jerseys worn on Christmas day. EXCLUSIVE! NBA All-Star jersey leaked on French site. I confirm it's the real deal –> http://t.co/ihX7lPzEQu pic.twitter.com/7tuvUvp3E4 — Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) January 16, 2014 Los "pijamas" del All Star ya han salido a la luz #allstar #nba pic.twitter.com/rXSHaxX1xa — FUIKAOMAR (@FUIKAOMAR) January 16, 2014

  • Frozen Lighthouses on Lake Michigan [9 Photos]

    Winter is here and we are all cold and miserable. Despite this, there are lunatics out there, like photographer Thomas Zakowski, who dare to venture outdoors and even manage to make these bleak times appear beautiful. Zakowski travels around Lake Michigan during the calm after a winter storm and captures these striking images of amazing ice formations on frozen lighthouses. I don’t know what brand of magic he employs, but for a brief moment his photographs warmed the cockles of my heart  (maybe even below the cockles, in the sub-cockle area) and made me forget that i was wearing multiple layers of clothing and shivering INSIDE my apartment. You almost had me, Zakowski. See more of his work at 500px.

  • 35 Women We Want To See In Sports Illustrated’s 2014 Swimsuit Issue

    Less than one month until the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hits newstands and the buzz is beginning to build.

    Nike’s new ad campaign for their new Nike VR_S Covert 2.0 club is to “Play In The Now”, a message to all the nay-sayers of progressive golf clubs.

PEP has released a video for “Stephen” and it really illustrates how much Rhea understands the genre. She has stated that the idea came to her when she heard “Runaround Sue” playing in a store then downloaded over 100 albums from the period. PEP’s appreciation of that golden era of pop is evident and “Stephen” is a fun song with a great video. Check it out then pre-order the EP at PEP.

With the winter Olympics gearing up, the North Face has taken center stage with uniforms and sponsorships, to pay homage to the sport that made them a cultural icon they created “The Rise”. This episode takes a look at filmmaking in skiing, an art that has been sought after for many years, but blown out of the water in recent years with film tech making serious leaps and bounds.

  • Stencil That Helps Tourists Take the Perfect Photo

    Mimi Chan and Utsavi Jhaveri, recent grads of the renowned Miami Ad School, created the #noshittyphotos project. A project dedicated to tourists who take really bad photos.

  • “Foster The People” Use “Young & Sick” to Make Largest West Coast Mural for New Single

    Foster the People have released their sophomore album, dubbed “Supermodels” today. Their first single off the highly anticipated album is ‘Coming of Age’, a melodic upbeat riffs, layered hooks, a piano break and of course some hand claps. The band used artists “Young & Sick” to create the largest mural on the west coast, spanning 148 ft X 126 ft tall, just completed on the side of the Santa Fe Lofts in downtown LA. They then used the footage as a time-lapse set to their new single. I don’t know if the song makes me enjoy this video or mural time-lapse hooks me on the song. The paradox of Foster the People.

Guy Code comes to the rescue with these tips on finding the hotties when it’s oh so cold out.

  • Stop Everything And Watch The “Devil Baby Attack” Video That Is Burning Up The Web

    There has been a lot of bellyaching lately about the proliferation of viral videos as movie marketing, but as long as the videos keep entertaining us, we see no reason to complain. The newest video making its way around the Internet is an ad for “Devil’s Due” which opens this weekend. In the video, an animatronic possessed “devil baby” riding in a remote controlled stroller is let loose around New York City. People look inside the stroller, “devil baby” pops out and scares them, they scream, and we laugh. Simple yet effective.

  • Everything You Ask Google Sounds A Lot Stupider When You Actually Ask Google. [Video]

    Ever imagine what it would be like if Google was a man with the unfortunate duty of answering every idiotic question we’d come up with? College Humor did and it’s hilarious. It’s easy typing in any random query that pops into your head, but if you had to actually talk to Mr. Google face to face, would you have the balls to ask for “college girls nude” or “butthole”?

  • If NFL Logos Were Hipsters [Link]

    We love when talented designers take on team logos. We especially love it when there’s a touch of humor involved. Check out these hipster redesigns of all the NFL teams and see what it would be like if it was, I don’t know, a bike polo league or something. Dan Snyder should consider the Redskins redesign since hipsters don’t yet have any official organization (unless there’s a barista union).

  • Eddie Murphy’s $12M Mega Mansion Is On The Market [25 Photos]

    How would you like to live in the house that Vampire in Brooklyn built? The Granite Bay, California mansion that Eddie Murphy purchased in 1998 for $3.8 million is back on the market. Murphy sold the property to a real estate investor back in 2007, probably in anticipation of the success of his Norbit, for $6.1 million, but the market must have rebounded because it’s now listed at $12 million. But good news, house hunters, the 12,600 square-foot mansion comes fully furnished! Actually, after looking over these pictures, you may realize that’s not a particularly strong selling point. In addition to the eclectic decor, the mansion also boasts 10 bedrooms, a 12-seat screening room (for group viewings of Daddy Day Care), a billiard room, and an arcade. Outside you’ll find an infinity pool, spa, waterfalls, gazebos, basketball and tennis courts. There’s also a really weird looking piano, perfect for playing the Beverly Hills Cop theme “Axel F,” that is one of only 14 in existence. I’m no real estate guru, but if you’ve got the cash, I’d say go for it, but demand a copy of Bowfinger for the screening room. That movie is way underrated. 

  • Beautiful Aerial Photography by Klaus Leidorf [27 Photos]

    Photographer Klaus Leidorf takes these incredible aerial shots from a Cessna 172 Skyhawk light aircraft using a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III and Canon EOS 5D Mark II. His finished product is this beautiful collection of photographs that look more like up-close shots of miniatures rather than the real-life aerials that they actually are. Life sure looks a lot more peaceful from up there. 

  • The World’s Largest Sand Sculpture Park [20 Photos]

There are 40 works on display, all based on scenes from the world renowned “1001 Arabian Nights” stories.

  • Raw Footage From the Launch Of SpaceShipTwo [Video]

    Virgin Galactic is one step closer to its goal of bringing tourists (albeit extremely wealthy ones) to space after a successful test flight of the SpaceShipTwo (SS2) on January 10. It was the third rocket-powered supersonic flight for the subspace-craft and Virgiin Galactic officials said all their objectives were met. This is great news for the company, which plans on beginning commercial service later this year. Many celebrities have already reserved spots for when the service takes off, including Stephen Hawking, Katy Perry, Ashton Kutcher, and Tom Hanks. If you’d like join them as one of the first space tourists, sign up at Virgin Galactic. Wait, you don’t have $250,000? Better cut back on your daily Starbucks.

  • Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Stage Impromptu Show on NYC Bus

    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, so hot right now. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The DJ/MC duo have taken the ‘hip-pop’ world by storm over the past year, dropping chart topping hit after hit and now, they’ve taken over a New York City bus. In preparation for their performance at the Grammys on January 26th, the duo hopped on a bus ‘occupied’ by city patrons going where they need to go, but what they got was an impromptu show from one of the most popular artists out right now. Looks like the crowd enjoyed it. Recipe for internet success, I guess.
