Tune Out in Style With Molami + The Manic Video You Don’t Want to Miss

Edited by

Headphones –  you buy, they break, you buy again. There are a few color and style options out there, but for the most part, they’re all the same, right? Bring Molami into the picture, and you’ll discover not all portable sounds is created equal. In fact, you’ll find sound can actually be worn. Materials like silk, leather and stingray adorn some of the best little systems around. And there is a style for everyone, from subtle earbuds to an ultra-comfortable, headband-like contraption. You won’t find headphones cooler than these.

Seven Ways to Stow your Secret Stash

Edited by

What say you work in an office, or live in a house, where one of your lot has viciously sticky fingers. Or you simply have something blatantly illegal you’d like to stow away someplace conveniently sneaky. Master of design, Yiting Cheng developed several methods that will put your hidden high school weed box to utter shame. Cheng works more on the level of 007. Slim drawers that only open with detachable magnets, coffee cups that hide car keys (or pills) and also holds coffee (see video). Flip through the gallery to start stashing today.

The Amazing Technicolor Typewriter

Edited by

Most of us probably wonder what it’s like to write on a typewriter, in any sort of earnest. Now imagine typing with pigments rather than letters. Artist Tyree Callahan pondered that exact thought and set out to rebuild a machine that could type with all the colors of the wind. He polished up an old 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, scouring the lingering nicotine residue from the Hunter S. Thompson-like writer that slaved for years, cigarette in mouth, over the old QWERTY keys. He reset the letters with color swatches and the cartridges with watercolors. One month later, the world has the first watercoloring typewriter.

Jimmy Kimmel Gets an Early Start on Next Year’s Oscar Race with “Movie: The Movie”

Edited by

This is perhaps the greatest cinematic achievement that will actually never be achieved. Sure, The Artist may be the year’s Best Picture, but does it have Kate Beckinsale banging Chewbacca? Jimmy Kimmel recruited basically every star under the sun for the trailer of epic fake film, Movie: The Movie. Let’s see, we’ve got Tom Hanks as a robotic lawyer, Charlize Theron as a gun-toting sexy judge, Meryl Streep in a mustache, George Clooney as a wheelchair-bound scientist, Don Cheadle as a black white swan, Dame Helen Mirren on a hovercraft, Matt Damon as a disgruntled bunch of grapes, Gary Oldman as a centaur, Daniel Day-Lewis as Tyler Perry as George Washington  and Gabourey Sidibe as Black Hitler riding a meteor headed straight for Earth. Based on the novel Push by Sapphire, Movie: The Movie ensures that once you go black Hitler, you’ll never go back Hitler.

Emmanuelle Alt Wants You to Wake Her Up Before You Go-Go

Edited by

Jitterbug. Emmanuelle Alt has finally made me not long for the kohl-eyed, pencil-skirted days of Carine Roitfeld and all it took was a few dozen models or so in a pitch-perfect parody of Wham!‘s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”  To fete the relaunch of French Vogue‘s website, its editrix-in-chic recruited Anja Rubik, Kendra Spears, Karmen Pedaru and Jasmine Tooks to back her up in a feat of lip-synching that would put Madonna to shame. And while Alt is not as pretty as 80s-era George Michael — then again, who is? — she sure gives him a run for his jitterbugging money. Check out the thoroughly AMAZING clip after the jump.

Uniboob Alien Alert on Rome Runway

Edited by

uniboob is nearly always a tragedy. There’s a darn good reason we have two of them, and seeing just one can be a bit jostling. It’s especially shocking on a couture runway in Roma. To keep you abreast of the situation, the literally titled “Fishlike Alien With A Literal Boob In The Center” is by bridal and couture designer Gianni Molaro, a wacky wedding dress designer, maker of “couture art”, and now likely considered one of the top Italian comedians*.

Fake Boobs Saved Woman from Stabbing

Edited by

In a nasty case of the ex-fiancé’s wily new grilfriend, the crazy bitch stabbed her man’s ex in the chest. Repeatedly. After keying her car. Meanwhile, if she was going to kill her, what was the point of keying her car? But looks like the knife wasn’t quite long enough to cause damage to any major organs. She was saved by the saline of her three-month-old breast implant.  Well kids, that’s one more reason to support plastic surgery

Under a Hot Hundred: Jump From Paper Cartoon Bags

Edited by

This bag looks more fit to adorn an avatar of one of those alleged “second lives” (creepy) or a My Little Pony (adorable, unless you’re their biggest demographic which is 15-24 male…creepy). It’s a cartoon, drawn on the page of animation’s past, yes? NO! “I’m a real bag!” it tells you from its cartoonish ability to speak. But really, you can use it in reality. It will literally Jump From Paper for you! See after the jump.
