    Turtlecalls: $2 Calls From Someone Acting Like a Turtle

    When the internet first started to blow up, analysts thought that it would bring a new kind of economy to the world, one defined by quick and easy services provided for free (or for a nominal fee), with no overhead and no middlemen. That dream has mostly dissipated, but it lives on in Turtlecalls, an […]

    ‘Street Fighter V’ Full-Length Trailer (Video)

    Fighting game franchises don’t come much more beloved than the Street Fighter series, and the eagerly awaited fifth installment now has a big, flashy, cinematic trailer to stoke that anticipation to even greater temperatures in advance of the release of Street Fighter V later this month.

    “Formation”: Beyoncé’s New Orleans Tribute (Video)

    Beyoncé tends to approach fame in the same manner as Stanley Kubrick or D’Angelo: We don’t hear much for years, then all of a sudden she’s everywhere. Last night she performed in the Super Bowl halftime show, and around the same time she was releasing a single/video/short film: “Formation,” a previously Tidal-exclusive track that has now […]

    ‘Star Wars Headspace': ‘Star Wars’-Themed Album Coming Soon

    One cool part about a pop culture phenomenon like Star Wars isn’t just the thing itself, but the other things it inspires, some of them more than a little unlikely on paper. Take, for example, the upcoming album from super-producer Rick Rubin entitled Star Wars Headspace. For Star Wars Headspace, Rubin has enlisted a wretched […]

    ‘Jason Bourne’ Super Bowl Spot (Video)

    Super Bowl commercials really aren’t as fun as they used to be, since most of the best ones are all released online days before the game, and a lot of the brands have “caught on” to the whole thing in an ultimately detrimental way. But last night’s game was still home to a cool movie […]

    Not so long ago if you called someone “smart as a basketball” it would have been a pretty unambiguous insult (and a pretty funny one, depending on your delivery), but now we live in a world of smart everything. Enter the Wilson X Connected Basketball. The Wilson X Connected Basketball is equipped with an internal […]

    ‘Skate Near Death': Harrowing Skate Video From Roma Alimov (Video)

    The era of death-defying stunts for our entertainment is usually thought of as the product of a less cautious time, but there are still a few modern-day Harold Lloyds and Jackie Chans out there carrying the torch for amusing other people to death. One of them is Russian skater Roma Alimov, who recently released a […]

    ‘When the Evil Smiles’ Supercut Showcases Villainous Grins (Video)

    Society generally tells us that evil things will lead to bad, unpleasant emotions: Sadness, loneliness, anger, and so on. But why is it, then, that the bad guys always seem to be enjoying themselves so much? That’s the implicit question posed by When the Evil Smiles, a new supercut from Semih Okmn. Soundtracked by the […]

    Frinkiac: A Searchable Index of Three Million ‘Simpsons’ Screenshots

    In certain corners of the internet, screenshots from The Simpsons are basically like currency. But much like the early days of our modern economy, sources for good screenshots have previously been scattered across the web, with no centralized place to get the one you want. Now, though, we have Frinkiac. The Frinkiac search engine has […]

    ‘Go F*ck!': The “Mature” Version of Go Fish

    Go Fish is a time-tested way to occupy the minds of children, but the whole enterprise can start to feel a little bit juvenile after a while — “do you have any queens?” “Do you have any jacks?,” etc. Luckily, we live in the year 2016, when no children’s activity goes un-adultified, and now we […]
