Glastonbury Festival: The App

If you love listening to live music, there’s really no better place to do that than in a field in the British countryside. But as ever with Glastonbury there’s so much going on, it’s difficult to know what to do with yourself. Which is where this handy app comes in. Featuring customisable line-up, interactive map, [...]

Jedi A-Holes Strike Back

These guys just had to do another video, if for nothing else than the video title alone. So here it is, something we’ve all no doubt been waiting for, the sequel to Jedi A-Holes. Where a bunch of Force controlling douche-holes abuse their abilities and use the mystical power of the Jedis to be totally [...]

Modern Warfare 3: Fuck Yeah Edition

This will be the first thing you will think when you watch the new trailer for MW3. ‘Set gaming levels to ludicrous and let’s blow some shit up.’ That seems to be the reasoning behind the Modern Warfare franchise. If it exists, then for Christ’s sake it can be blown into tiny particles by artillery, [...]

Battles – Ice Cream

Wow, this has got an awful lot of awesome in it. It’s got a hot brunette in a bath tub eating ice-cream, in a suggestive manner. It has karate, it has cats, it’s got psychedelic effects, it’s got TVs on stage, it’s got crazy camera work, it’s got paint fights, it’s got too much. And [...]

LUCK – NYC Wedding Proposal

It’s things like this that make the rest of us look like pathetic a-holes when it comes to romance. As great as this video is, it should be buried in an unmarked spot in the Sahara desert, all copies of it erased from the internet, and no one should ever talk of it again. That [...]

Yung Funk “Haters”

This kid has basically made this video to goad the haters, a rallying cry for them to come out of their darkened basements, squinting into the sunlight, to spit abuse. But hating on this embryo in a cap would just be too easy, far better to laugh along with it. In a few years he’ll [...]

Boards Of Canada – 1969

In the 1970s, if there’s one thing they loved, it was violence. The world was discontent, which was bad news for society but good news for the movies. Because one of the most fertile periods in film history was born and it gave us Scarface, Taxi Driver, Apocalypse Now and a whole bunch of other [...]

Carrot vs. Ninja

Billing itself as a quick tale of violence is going to peak a few interests, and this short film delivers big on the entertainment front. It’s like Bugs Bunny, Roadrunner & Mad Max all rolled up into a big fat one. So sit back, get yourself some popcorn and then… Ah, it’s all over already. [...]

Pole Position

Well this game looks totally insane. A man sits atop a pole while a bunch of other men brawl below him, then that man gets pulled from atop the pole, another man attempts to climb to the top and the pole is pulled to the ground. Makes very little sense and looks like lots of [...]

Transphobic Techno (Bitch Got a Penis)

The lyrics to this slamming track are incredible, so profound, so full of the truth of the ages. It’s a shame they don’t post them in full so you can find out exactly what it is they’re saying. Because you’re going to want to remember these lyrics and sing them to strangers on the street. [...]

IT’S MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, we are all still here, so i guess the rapture must have had a slight malfunction, or they are gonna release it in a 2.0 version sometime soon, with a camera and the ability to play flash, maybe? Either way, i am sure some of us are wishing the day of judgement ‘did’ happen [...]

Greatest Protest Song EVER!

House gets his harmonica out and shows us that it isn’t just all about being a wisecracking, misanthropic doctor. It’s also about being a mumbling protest singer, so come gather round all ye children of the sun gods and sing the rallying cry of hope from the jaws of heroes “All we gotta do is [...]

Ben Grove: Skateboarding Badass

This is Ben Grove, with a killer hangover, on the meanish streets of Manchester, surfing the curb on his board of power. Nothing can stop him, not even one of those barriers that cars have to stop in front of, such is his skateboarding skills even the concrete jungle bows down to his superior awesomeness. [...]

Chick

The eternal dance between the sexes, the oldest tale in the world of boy meets girl, girl sucks boy’s eyeball, boy suffers. The allure of the femme, the duel between the two, the sucking of eyeballs, it happens the world over, every day, all day, and will continue to do so forever. Amen. And here [...]

Scary Insect Found In North America

Holy f#cking giant bitey insects Batman! We showed a video of this insect a while back from deep within in the Amazonian jungles of South America and prayed it would stay put! Then it turned up in India and now some chick has had an encounter with one in the USA and the damn thing [...]

24 Hours of Neon

Taking two of the internet’s favourite photo tricks — HDR and time-lapse — united together for a glitzy, disorientating spin round Las Vegas. Well, a spin around Las Vegas from his hotel balcony, but it still captures the chaos and madness that is the city in the desert. “We were somewhere around Barstow, on the [...]

People Are Awesome

Why are people awesome? Because they can balance themselves on a pedal-driven vehicle or plywood board with wheels attached and perform various tricks. Hell, they might even be able to balance on one of those things while on a ramp, which makes them truly amazing. They can also dive from really high up and jump [...]
