Women vs Men: Not So Parallel (parked)

A British study billed as “the most comprehensive ever conducted on gender driving differences” has concluded that women are better at parking cars than men. The study, which relied on surveillence camera footage of over 2,500 drivers across 700 parking garages, was devised by professional driving instructor Neil Beeson, and produced by car park firm [...]

DON’T FLOP – Rap Battle – ‬Blizzard Vs Mark Grist

Don’t flop is good advice no matter what activity you’re indulging in and definitely not in rap battles. And definitely not in a rap battle where a pupil takes on his teacher. But while you’d think the kid might be more down with it and pwn teach, he actually gets schooled as teach takes it [...]

Dicken feat. Milah & Korben: ‘Everything Counts’

Is this the coolest dad in the history of dadhood? Not only is he spending quality time with his kids but they’re doing an awesome activity, laying down a cool Depeche Mode track which they get to perform on, rocking the keyboard and the recorder. And to top it all off and make us all [...]

Finnair Flight Goes Bollywood

In the Nordics they do air travel very different to the rest of the planet. No, they’re not completely bombed out of their minds, but instead they’re celebrating India’s Republic Day by literally rocking out in the aisles. A dancing flight crew surprises (annoys?) passengers after they’ve boarded a Finnair flight to Delhi, so [...]

Celebrity Sleepovers

Mark Malkoff is living the Hollywood dream, but in the same rotten global economy we all are, so when he went to LA, instead of staying in a hotel, he asked celebrities if he could sleepover at their homes. Not really big celebrities like Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts but the ‘less’ major people who [...]

Household Beat Challenge

Another musical mashup for you, though this one doesn’t use a movie for samples. The guy who made this is so good at it that he takes challenges from his viewers and the challenge here was to make a beat using only re-purposed sounds that he could make using household items. A plastic bag rustling, [...]

Richard Dawkins Disses Jesus

Richard Dawkins who’s made a late career for himself out of offending religious types takes them to task here, effectively using their own arm to beat them into submission by claiming that had Jesus existed and not been a fictional creation he’d have been an atheist. Not doubt Dawkins would’ve been his best buddy and [...]

Yosemite HD

Yosemite National Park, featuring a valley carved out of the American landscape by glaciers 4,000ft wide 1 million years ago. Yes, it’s one of those places where it’s OK to be totally wowed by nature and not come across like some leaf-loving hippy. It’s a place of stunning beauty, exactly the sort of place where [...]

Famous Photographs Meet Their Creators

The Tank Man of Tienanmen Square. Muhammad Ali standing over Sonny Liston in victory. The portrait of the Afghan Girl on the cover of National Geographic. Many of us can automatically recall these photos in our heads, but far fewer can name the photographers who took them. Even fewer know what those photographers look like.

‘Archetype’ by Aaron Sims

Get comfy, grab some popcorn and your favourite soda and take 7 minutes out of your day to watch this home-made labour of love from Aaron Sims. Go on, you deserve it. If you’re not convinced then know that it has an eight-foot tall combat robot, RL7, that malfunctions, goes AWOL and memories start surfacing [...]

SOPA and PIPA

NO, they are not 2 webcam wannabes shaking their thang. If you’ve never heard the two words above, then where have you been all week? Both these acts that threaten the freedoms of the online world with their lameness have had bad press this week, thanks in no small part to thousands of websites going [...]

Video Game Demake Artwork

It’s time to bring today’s modern gaming hits to the good old days – Bioshock, Deus Ex, Mass Effect, Portal, etc are all seriously beautiful games, but even when reduced to a fraction of their former pixel count by talented demake artists Pieceoftoast & JunkBoy, they still look totally awesome. I’d love to play these.
