Chalk this up to a simple fact. If you have enough money, you can turn your childhood dreams into reality.

The Ramp House was designed by Archivirus Architecture and Design of Greece, for a client who made a simple request that the house be a ‘skateable environment’.

Bite Your Tongue

The ShamWow guy got arrested last month for beating up a hooker after she bit his tongue and wouldn’t let go. All things considered, that is one of the better hooker mug shots I have seen.

We predict the future

During an internal site search for ‘adidas’ I came across an extremely funny coincidence.  Ages ago (March 2008), I was making fun of sneaker collaborations and mentioned how insane it would be if Nike released a Teen Wolf dunk, knowing that Teen Wolf wore Adidas.  Fast forward to January 2009, when the blogosphere mentioned a Teen Wolf Tribute Dunk, pretty wild.  Have you ever imagined where all of these shoes go that never get sold?  Anyway, hopefully they’re recycled but, more realistically they are in some landfill.  2010 prediction, the fall of streetwear is marked by a collaboration with Ringling Bros..  take this seriously.

I have never enjoyed watching a woman eat a burger more than this

A Presidential Hard-on

justine-lai-abe-lincoln-sex

San Francisco based artist Justine Lai has been painting oil portraits of herself banging out our nation’s Presidents for a couple years. We wholly approve.

“In Join Or Die, I paint myself having sex with the Presidents of the United States in chronological order. I am interested in humanizing and demythologizing the Presidents by addressing their public legacies and private lives. The presidency itself is a seemingly immortal and impenetrable institution; by inserting myself in its timeline, I attempt to locate something intimate and mortal. I use this intimacy to subvert authority, but it demands that I make myself vulnerable along with the Presidents. A power lies in rendering these patriarchal figures the possible object of shame, ridicule and desire, but it is a power that is constantly negotiated.

I approach the spectacle of sex and politics with a certain playfulness. It would be easy to let the images slide into territory that’s strictly pornographic—the lurid and hardcore, the predictably “controversial.” One could also imagine a series preoccupied with wearing its “Fuck the Man” symbolism on its sleeve. But I wish to move beyond these things and make something playful and tender and maybe a little ambiguous, but exuberantly so. This, I feel, is the most humanizing act I can do.
