Here's Robert Pattinson's Uncensored Dior Homme Ad [VIDEOS]
03 sep 2013 09:38

It’s finally here … Kinda. Dior has now shared more than mere stills or teasers of Robert Pattinson‘s Dior Homme fragrance ad campaign by giving us several behind the scenes video as well as an uncensored director’s cut. In it, we learn that if you use Dior Homme you too will be able to land a supermodel like Camille Rowe and will therefore spend your time macking it to her, standing around while brooding on top of buildings and crashing parties for foreign dignitaries. Possibly. It’s kind of unclear in perfume commercials exactly what’s happening. Directed by Romain Gavras and featuring Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ you can check out the entire uncensored ad above. Side note: even though it’s labeled “uncensored,” it’s not that scandalous, unless it’s set in the town of ‘Footloose’ where dancing and suggestively cuddling is bad. As for behind the scene shots and actual uncensored clips? You can check out those below.

13 IKEA Products Whose Names Make Little Sense
03 sep 2013 09:28

f you’ve ever been to an IKEA store, or rather if you’ve ever found yourself trapped in the maze that is one of their stores, you’ll be familiar with the Swedish names they give their products. Generally speaking, these names denote the type of function that product will perform, so ‘DISKA’ translation “to wash dishes” is the name of a dishwashing brush. Seems logical enough doesn’t it? It’s a very succinct and efficient way of making sure consumers know the product does what it says on the label. Except when it comes to the following 12 examples. Here their names make no sense at all – maybe the right words were already taken? Maybe it was 5.30pm on a Friday and the person in charge of selecting thousands of functional names had simply had enough. Either way, they make for entertaining viewing.

What “trash” and “garbage” meant before they were synonyms
02 sep 2013 10:41

For many English speakers, the words “trash” and “garbage” are virtually interchangeable. If there’s a difference at all, it’s a subtle one rather than the words having completely different definitions. But that wasn’t always the case…

Watch Bill Murray's Spectacular 'Letterman' Entrance
31 aug 2013 18:46

To celebrate David Letterman‘s 20th anniversary of working on CBS, Bill Murray showed up and made quite a spectacle. For his entrance, he chose to channel Liberace. Then, he chose to channel Whitney Houston in a rather…spirited performance of ‘I Will Always Love You.’ Thank goodness for YouTube, so we can watch these without paying a cable company.

Kittens Run onto Subway Tracks in Brooklyn and Shut Down Trains

If anyone knows anything about New Yorker's, it's that they're always in a rush (they must have a large Russian population. yay jokes!) Last Thursday, 8/29, the two culprits were caught delaying the NY MTA services after meddling, or loitering around the subway tracks. Damn those loitering vandals! They were however rescued, and subway services returned to normal and now you can go on with your normal day after having been informed of these dreadful news!

THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Extended TV Spot
30 aug 2013 01:21

Marvel has released a new extended TV spot for Thor: The Dark World, and as you've seen, it looks like he has his work cut out for him in this next movie. He's going to be fighting some real bad dudes in trying to once again save the universe. Unfortunately, there's really nothing new to see here, but the movie still look amazing! I can't wait to see how this story turns out, especially the ending. I think it's going to be pretty jacked up. The highly anticipated film hits theaters on November 8th, 2013.

Watch a Reporter Get Naked Smack in the Middle of Interview with Mayor
30 aug 2013 01:14

Well, here’s proof that maybe Canada is not as bad as we think. In the middle of interview with the mayor of Kelowna, British Columbia, reporter Lori Welbourne decided to tackle the issue of going topless in public. Mayor Walter Gray is stunned, at first, but quickly gathers himself and continues with the Q&A and a spirited discussion with Welbourne. And good news for our intrepid reporter, too – Gray tells her she’s within her rights to discard her shirt. Let’s just hope this doesn’t start a trend. We don’t need to see Diane Sawyer showing off what God gave her the next time she sits down with President Obama.

Hello Gas Man. Please. Come in!

If you are like most of the population in America, then you probably have to get your water heater fixed every once in a while. And like other people in America, you probably are home when strange people come into your house to do some repairs. Well, turns out that some people go the extra mile to make gas men... feel special I suppose? I don't even know to be honest. Here, just, take a look at this:

The Incredible Monsters & Machines Of The Isle Of Nantes
28 aug 2013 18:27

When it comes to tourism, many countries highlight their unique landmarks (Sydney Opera House in Australia, The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy) or cultural celebrations (or the Rio Carnival in Brazil & Running Of The Bulls in Spain) as a reason to visit. But Nantes, the 6th largest city in France has an entirely different proposition to lure tourists to their region. Tucked inside several warehouses that were formerly used as shipyards, sits an exhibition titled ‘Machines of the Isle‘ (or if you’re a local Les Machines de l’Île de Nantes) that will genuinely blow your mind. Since it’s inception in 2007 it has captured the imagination of thousands of tourists visiting the area. But what is it exactly? It’s the creation of two artists François Delarozière & Pierre Orefice, their vision is based upon “Visualising a travel-through-time world at the crossroads of the “imaginary worlds” of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.” and if that sounds as ambitious as it does exciting you’d be right. Over the past 6 years, together they’ve built 3 major machines, ‘The Great Elephant’ back in 2007, ‘The Marine Worlds Carrousel’ in 2012 and ‘The Heron Tree’ which will be available to the public in 2014. Of the three, most famous is ‘The Great Elephant’ and it’s not hard to see why. Standing 12M high and stretching 8M wide it’s a structure built from a staggering 45 tons of timber and steel. But what is truly remarkable about the machine, is that was it was designed to actually move and carry members of the public. 49 to be exact and it can do so easily without any issues for around 45min. But it doesn’t end there, Delarozière & Orefice have brought other creatures to life, giant spiders, deadly venus fly traps, pterodactylus and even fish that could swallow you whole all make an appearance as you wind your away around their world. So next time you’re in Europe and what to experience something different away from the hordes and cramped cobble streets of Europe’s tourist traps – why not head over to Nantes? It’s a place where the past and future truly do collide.

Fake Dinosaur Helps Pull Off Greatest Prank Ever
28 aug 2013 18:24

As far as pranks go, this one is a tyrannosaurus-sized success. In this Japanese video, a man is heading into his office for what appears to be another ho-hum day when, all of the sudden, he sees his co-workers fleeing from what looks like a dinosaur. The frightened man tries to hightail it out of there, not realizing the dinosaur is actually a puppet (note the human feet commandeering the costume). It’s hilarious and kind of makes us wish the countless hidden camera pranks on YouTube make a dedicated effort to up their game. C’mon, USA!

The 'Dreams Are Real' Music Video Is So Very Internet

This, as far as I can tell, is a music video for a song named “Dreams Are Real” made by guy named Ryan Barger. I feel safe in saying that it’s probably the most internet thing you will see today.

Stoned Patrick Stewart Explains 'Quadruple Take'
28 aug 2013 18:14

Sir Patrick Stewart, the only knighted actor to ever give a master ACTING course on an animated show starring an alien and a talking goldfish, is now offering private lessons to his girlfriend, Sunny Ozell. Last night, she uploaded a video of one such lesson, apparently filmed in a tree house after firing up a doob, in which Stewart explains the complexities of the “quadruple take” using my new security answer for everything, “Her buns ARE the best.” My acting experience is limited to not screaming when I’m told “how great CSI was,” but I’d pay good money to have Stewart teach me all of the finest sitcom tropes. The spit take, the jaw drop, the scheduling two dates on the same night across the street from one another. Throw in a animal reaction shot exercise with Spot, and I’d start today.

PBS's Game/Show Argues Mario Will Be Around In 2525
28 aug 2013 18:12

PBS was pretty slow to embrace the Internet, but in the last few years they’ve really gone full out. They’ve remixed Mr. Rogers, they’ve been doing some pretty compelling short documentaries about all sorts of topics. And their first dedicated webseries about video games, Game/Show, is… really interesting, actually. First of all, it’s hosted by James Warren of Kill Screen, who’s probably one of the better games journalists out there at the moment. Secondly, it makes a pretty compelling case that long after everybody reading this is dust, we’ll still be playing Mario games:

Watch Olivia Munn And Letterman Dissect Her Viral Swing Fall Video
28 aug 2013 18:10

Olivia Munn is a good talk show guest. She’s funny and quirky and can somehow find a way to arouse you with her Tiger Mom abuse stories, so of course just a little over a week after falling off an indoor swing and dislocating her shoulder she shared the viral video of the incident with David Letterman who had not yet seen it. Olivia explaining the whole thing to Dave is reason enough to watch, but add Letterman’s endless fascination with the physics of the swing and just where and how she fell to sustain such injuries and you’ve got yourself some good television. He also can’t figure out how to say her last name at the end, which I enjoyed a little too much. And here’s the first segment of her describing how she gets uncomfortable at fashion shows so she just mimics whatever Catherine Zeta-Jones is doing. Needs more boob window, but good times nonetheless.

'Star Drunk' Proves All Sci-Fi Franchises Need More Booze (VIDEO)
28 aug 2013 18:09

Ever wanted to see a sci-fi short film written and performed by drunk people? Well, that’s probably half of all films, but Star Drunk did it intentionally. Of course this happened in Portland. Star Drunk is an experiment in writing a short film while drunk; several writers from Portland got together one night to write the script. We promised each other that whatever we wrote that night, we’d produce as a short film. We ended up creating a Star Trek-Star Wars-Battlestar Galactica’esque parody with laser gun fights and space battles. Taking the concept a step further (and stranger), we asked our cast to be drunk on the night of filming. [ChrisRWilsonFilm] Those actors include Greg James, Adam Elliot Davis, Kyle Smith, Britt Harris, Alexander Fraser, and Bethany Jacobs (pictured above) doing an impression of Carol Marcus from Star Trek Into Darkness.

When Is The 'Breaking Bad' Series Finale? That's A Big Night Of TV
28 aug 2013 18:06

Sunday, September 29 is most notable for our purposes because it is the date of the series finale of Breaking Bad. That is, provided we all survive until then and don’t just start vibrating at such a high frequency from the intensity and breakneck pace of the episodes leading up to it that we burst into a billion zillion little particles and eventually settle back down to the earth as a fine, sand-like sediment layer on the crust. (Scientists thousands of years from now will refer to this as the Heisenberg layer. It will be totally devoid of nutrients, but if you put your ear very close to it, you will hear it ramble on and on about its feelings about Skyler and what it thinks Walt did with the ricin.) But that’s not the only thing on television that night. Far from it. Sunday, September 29 also features a primetime football game on NBC (always a ratings juggernaut), an episode of Boardwalk Empire on HBO, and a SLEW of premieres, including: Homeland; the final season of Eastbound & Down; The Good Wife; The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, and the rest of Fox’s animation block; The Amazing Race for reality TV fans; and the series premiere of both Lizzy Caplan’s Masters of Sex and Stephen Merchant’s Hello Ladies. Now, none of this is to say that anything in that paragraph should prevent you from watching the series finale of one of the best television dramas of the past decade or so. But I did want to give you a month of notice in case you want to send your DVR off to some martial arts master for an intense training program to help it prepare. I’ve seen it work before....

Bryan Cranston Cast As Lex Luthor In 'Man of Steel 2' Fan-Made Video
28 aug 2013 17:13

When it was announced that Ben Affleck is our new Batman and Bryan Cranston may be Lex Luthor, we knew the fan mashups would roll in (Example: Southie Batman!). This one, however, threw the fulminated mercury against the wall and blew everyone else away. SoylentBrak1 pieced together footage from twenty properties including Breaking Bad, Man Of Steel, The Dark Knight, Total Recall (2012), Daredevil, and more. It’s all set to “I Will Find Him” and “Arcade” from Han Zimmer’s excellent Man Of Steel score. Let this video serve as a reminder why Warner seriously needs to cast Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor. Everyone else auditioning best stay out of his territory.

Amazon Enables 1-Click Within All Your Android Apps
28 aug 2013 17:13

In-app purchases are a pretty big deal to developers; there’s a reason the “top grossing” apps in the Android store are mostly free. Now Amazon is trying to extend that logic to buying… well, anything you see inside an app. Amazon calls it the “Mobile Associates API”, and essentially, it means you can make anything in an app an ad for it on Amazon. And it’s not necessarily a bad deal for developers, either: "The Mobile Associates API allows developers to sell real products from the millions of items at Amazon, whether physical or digital, from inside their apps or games while earning up to 6% in advertising fees from those purchases. The Mobile Associates API is an extension of Amazon Associates, our successful web-based affiliate program created in 1996, paying advertising fees to hundreds of thousands of affiliates worldwide." 6% may not sound like much, but consider that some apps can be seen by millions of people in a given day. 1% of those buying could put a lot of cash in the pockets of developers, and you have to admit, being able to click a link to buy a book is a lot less annoying than having to hit up your friends on Facebook for in-game gold. The ultimate goal, of course, is to crush all retailers under Amazon’s heel as it builds a massive fulfillment network that makes consumer gratification instant and Jeff Bezos can afford his own planet. But, hey, it’s convenient!

Listen To Jon Lajoie's Miley Cyrus Song
28 aug 2013 17:10

I don’t hate Miley Cyrus. THERE I SAID IT. I’d much rather have a shameless pop star that I can’t look away from than the one who’s as stuffy and boring as whatever a Austin Mahone is. They’re radio-ready machines; their main cultural purpose is to make us feel bad for loving their music and being fascinated by them. What Miley Cyrus did at the VMAs wasn’t important or even good (it DEFINITELY wasn’t good), but her dancing around in her underwear while raping a bunch of stuffed bears is far more entertaining Lady Gaga’s latest art-fart project. In response to those like MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski who called Miley a disruptive slut, basically, Jon Lajoie, best known as Taco from The League, recorded a song called “Miley, You’re a Good Girl.” Sample lyric: “We want topless women in our music videos/We want pop stars acting like they’re in a porno/You know we want it and get what we asked for/But then Miley does it, we say OH MY GOD NO.” Lajoie’s also working on a strain called Twerkin’ Tush.

Well this certainly beats the hell out of my neighborhood ice cream truck. A, it’s not even a truck, it’s just a van with all the seats taken out. B, they play Christmas music all year round. Do you know how it feels to hear Jingle Bells blasting over some shitty speakers while you’re sweating in your own apartment, but you’re too lazy to peel yourself off the sofa and go get an ice cream? Hell. It feels like hell. And a little bit like irony, but in the Alanis Morsette sort of way.

The relationship between words and their meaning is a fascinating one, and linguists have spent countless years deconstructing it, taking it apart letter by letter, and trying to figure out why there are so many feelings and ideas that we cannot even put words to, and that our languages cannot identify. The idea that words cannot always say everything has been written about extensively - as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon the absolute truth.

Sooo, it looks like the latest heart throb to hit Hollywood, RJ Mite, just turned 21 and celebrated his new found awesomeness in Las Vegas, like any other typical 21 year old boy. The results? Well lets put it this way: I'm not sure whether to laugh in amusement, or let out a giant "AAWWWWW HOW CUUUTTEEE" with a condescending look on my face. I think I'll do both. Here are the results of said party:

What If Dexter Writers Wrote Breaking Bad?
27 aug 2013 22:29

n yesterday’s next day Breaking Bad discussion a lot of you voiced your confusion and calls of bullsh*t as to how and when the light finally turned on for Jesse with regards to the ricin theft/Brock poisoning/Huell’s delicate hot dog fingers. Even Anderson Cooper didn’t know what the hell was going on. I personally felt like the groundwork had been sufficiently laid down and it made for a better reveal that they didn’t hold our hand through it. But, you know, I’m cursed with ridiculous perception skills and high cheek bones. We can agree to disagree if you feel differently, but we should also agree that given some perspective as to how it probably would have been handled by other, much hack-ier writing teams, Breaking Bad’s version of divisive writing is still superior to everything else on its best day. To really hammer this home one Redditor created the below graphic to remind us all why we’re so damn lucky.
