Anti Rob Ford Campain Posters 1

Toronto has some fascinating new mayoral candidates, and they’re promising to “just smoke pot as mayor, not crack” and never get caught urinating in public. “Wait,” you say, “aren’t those two things incumbent mayor Rob Ford has allegedly done while in office?” Yes, yes they are. These poster feature fake candidates with the tag line “Anyone’s better than Rob Ford.” It’s a hilariously pitched ad campaign, featuring characters who look as questionable as their statements.

5 Great Reasons To Read Hunter S. Thompson

I have loved Hunter Thompson’s writing ever since, in high school, the film of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starring Johnny Depp turned me on to the book of the same name. You don’t forget a sentence like, “We were somewhere around Barstow when the drugs began to take hold.”

And you shouldn’t dismiss him, as some critics have, as a sloppy, self-indulgent, drug-ingesting hack. He took a lot of drugs, drank too much, loved guns and women (and excess in general) – he was a bit of a maniac to be sure, an imperfect character if there ever was one… and it is unfortunate that these facts obscure his real talent. Here are some of the best reasons why you should read his books and take him seriously. [Read more...]

Hover Boards 5

When Back to the Future II launched in 1989 there were a load of people convinced that Hoverboards were real. I was one of them. As I thumbed through the back of magazines like Popular Science, desperate for news about when they’d be released, my enthusiastic young mind saw me hovering through the park and even shooting across water – I’d have POWWAHH of course! Now a group calling themselves HUVrTech are saying they’ve created REAL hoverboards, and they’ve got Christopher Lloyd (yes, Doc Brown), Moby and even Tony Hawk (yes, TONY HAWK) backing them up [Read more...]

Working a Thursday night at Skylight Books in LA, Emily Pullen grabbed a book and matched her body to the figure on the cover. Her friends and co-workers joined in, matching each of their bodies more or less perfectly with those on the books – everything from faces and eyeballs, to punching fists and flexing muscle men.
