A bus driver in Russia nicknamed “The Punisher” takes vengeance on rude drivers who cut him off by not slowing down – and captures it all on his cam. He’s already been in about 100 accidents, and doesn’t look like he plans on stopping. Road rage or righteous rider? You can be the judge, just don’t be in his way.
Filmed over the course of Fall 2012 and Winter 2013, Mark Suciu rips in the city of Brotherly Love making his official debut for adidas Skateboarding. Looks like our city did him right. Official Website: www.adidas.com/skateboarding
As you already know, Jay-Z is writing the score to The Great Gatsby. Whether you think Hov’s lyrics can be considered American literature, they definitely fall into classic rap. But Vulture thought it might be fun to test fans on their knowledge of both, offering 10 lines which you have to guess either be spoken by Jay-Z or penned by F. Scott Fitzgerald (our editor got 8/10, not bad). Take the Quiz and find out how much of a fan you are.
Musician Jonathan Dagan (also known as J.Viewz) introduces the The Makey Makey, a circuit board that connects to your computer and any object that conducts even a small amount of electricity, with the help of a piano keyboard computer program. He decided bananas made great keys.
And if you thought bananas were fun, watch what he does with strawberries, kiwis, eggplant, carrots and grapes. In the above video he plays an entire cover of Massive Attack’s song Teardrop. And you thought you were doing so much creative shit on your MPC 5000. Pshhh, just don’t bust any grapes on your equipment. Pause.
Considering that everybody’s got their something to celebrate Chinese New Year (which was Feb 10), we’d thought we just share our favorite Chinese movie clips, from the most visually stunning to the best fight sequences. Because nobody does epic like the Chinese.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Too many egg tarts make you heavy for the bamboo tree.
Curse of the Golden Flower. If your wife, the Queen, cheats on you, you can’t try her for treason. Just poison her slowly.
Hero, touch a woman’s hair, and you’re asking to die.
Red Cliff, Zhang Fei vs. everything, and we mean everything.
Warlords, you ever want to win so bad you cut your enemy’s head off and start crying? Yeah us too.
IP Man, although technically not “epic”, we bet Donnie Yen gives killer massages.
Reebok’s Affili’Art program, which has previously produced collections with the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ryan McGinness, has now teamed up with the Keith Haring Foundation, to feature the late artist’s well-known icons – the antic Everyman, Barking Dog and Radiant Baby interpreted into classic sneaker silhouettes, fusing fashion and art. The unique collection features much-loved Reebok Classic models – the Classic Leather, Classic Leather Mid, NPC II, Workout Plus and Freestyle – that were first introduced during the 1980s, coincidentally around the same time as some of Haring’s most acclaimed work.
UBIQ has just received our first shoe from the creative collaborative. This special pair features the iconic “Barking Dog” graphics on a pair of mismatched yellow and blue Reebok Classic Leather Mid, which also uses Haring’s linear artwork on the midsole.
