Goodbye to That Mustache

Goodbye to That Mustache

Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact, and it appears the recent celebrity sadstache phenomenon is on its way out. Of course, maybe everything that dies someday comes back, so don’t get too excited.

Billboard reports that on Sunday Justin Bieber shaved off the notable dirtstache that’s been crawling atop his mouth for the last few months, posting an Instagram photo highlighting his newly...

Japanese FIFA Fan's Favorite Team Is Not Very Good, Travels 6000 Miles To See Them Anyway

Japanese FIFA Fan's Favorite Team Is Not Very Good, Travels 6000 Miles To See Them Anyway

Japanese FIFA player Akito Aoki flew all the way from Japan to the UK last week to watch his favourite team play. And while you’d expect that to be a club from the Premier League, or maybe the Championship (ie, the second division), he was actually there to watch Stockport County, a side currently toiling away in England’s fifth-tier.

“I like video games and I found Stockport County and I...

Puerto Rico, A Territory in Recession, Falls Prey to a More Than $4 Million Online Scam

Authorities in Puerto Rico reported this week that hackers had targeted more than four million dollars in government funds in recent months. The attack unsettled lawmakers on the island, who criticized the vague explanations given by the government at a time when Puerto Rico is in a financial crisis.

Adele apparently told some friends that she'll release a new album this year

We haven’t heard much from Adele in the last few years. Her last album, 25 , came out all the way back in 2015, and after that she pulled off a shocking Grammys upset , suggested that she might never want to tour again , had to get emergency surgery after damaging her vocal cords , and then… probably continued to do something, but we’re not sure what. Apparently, though, the reason we’re not...

Sambo Be Damned! Black Fashion Model Refused to Wear ‘Racist’ Accessories at Fashion Institute of Technology Show

Sambo Be Damned! Black Fashion Model Refused to Wear ‘Racist’ Accessories at Fashion Institute of Technology Show

The trashion fashion world is still about that bullshit!

One would think that even in higher institutes of liberal learning — in New York City, at that — folks wouldn’t be so tone deaf to think anything that could possibly be construed racist is a non-starter.

But no, not when it comes to fashion.

A black model at a Fashion Institute of Technology runway show is blowing the whistle about being...

Total RecallTotal RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.

I’ve been reading through the new book Japansoft: An Oral History recently, and while it’s full of very cool and interesting stories about the earliest days of Japanese game development, there’s one story in particular that’s my favourite.

No, Pete Buttigieg's Campaign Didn't Make A Sockpuppet Twitter Account Claiming to Be Nigerian

No, Pete Buttigieg's Campaign Didn't Make A Sockpuppet Twitter Account Claiming to Be Nigerian

Is the vehemently pro-Buttigieg account @easychineduu actually a staffer for the Democratic candidate trying to curry favor with minority voters? Or is it just the latest in a series of troll attacks on the 2020 presidential nominee?

The answer, as anticlimactic as it might seem, is neither.

A conspiracy theory whipped Twitter into a frenzy Sunday morning when a popular tweet suggested that...

Barbara Remington, Whose Lord of the Rings Illustrations Were Beloved By Everyone Except Tolkien, Has Died

Barbara Remington, Whose Lord of the Rings Illustrations Were Beloved By Everyone Except Tolkien, Has Died

Before Peter Jackson’s movies, the visual identity of Lord of the Rings was the territory of artists and animators. And few created a vision so iconic, and so loosely related to the actual books, as Barbara Remington.

Now, at the age of 90, the well-loved illustrator has passed away. As reported by the New York Times, the illustrator, who did paperback cover art for Tolkien’s The Lord of...

The Week In Games: Slide To The Left, Slide To The Ride

The Week In Games: Slide To The Left, Slide To The Ride

It’s time to power slide and shoot some robots. Vanquish is being released on PS4 and Xbox One this week, alongside Bayonetta. It is a good day for fans of action games.

I’ve been putting off playing Vanquish for too long. I need to just buy it and play it. I’ve gone too long in my life without sliding across the ground while shooting a dozen robots. Nobody should deny themselves that...

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip Sure Does Look Fragile in this Durability Test

Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip Sure Does Look Fragile in this Durability Test

Samsung’s proclaimed that it has “done the impossible” with its Galaxy Z Flip, that the smartphone even “bends the laws of physics.” But now a new durability test video has us questioning whether its screen really is made of that ultra-thin glass that’s supposed to set it apart from the company’s other bendable phone, the (originally disastrous) Galaxy Fold .

Weekend Wallpaper Put these on your desktop to look cool and awesome.

The Mid-to-late 1960s was perhaps the best period for vehicle design. A time when advancements in manufacturing, a growing economy, and total unawareness of the impending oil and pollution crisis allowed car companies to try designs that were never seen before, and some that would never be seen again.

Jake Johnson and Omar Sy can't escape the dinosaurs, will return for Jurassic World 3

Remember how much fun the first Jurassic World was in those pre-Star Wars: The Force Awakens days, where everyone was primed for some nostalgia-baiting action regardless of how good it actually was? Those were the days. If only there was some way to recapture the excitement of 2015 with some kind of… nostalgia-baiting action movie.

Actually, it sounds like that’s exactly what we’re getting...

It's True, Not Everyone Is Trying To Bone White People

Interracial relationships. Some people like them, some people still really hate them , and some people actually believe that they have the potential to solve racism. (Spoiler alert: they do not.)

However, as interracial relationships become increasingly common in real life (in 2015, 17% of all newlyweds had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity), people are beginning to ask that Hollywood...

Let's Explore The Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter

There are car company names that are acronyms like Fiat and Alfa, and plenty of model names that are initialisms, like the NSX or the BRZ, but not many model names that are acronyms. Subaru made one starting in 1978 called the BRAT, which stands for Bi-drive Recreational All-terrain Transporter.

It’s kind of a weird name, but the BRAT is kind of a weird vehicle. It was made in Japan but was...

This Unsettlingly Accurate Deepfake Casts Tom Holland and Robert Downey, Jr. in Back to the Future

Deepfake technology continues to weird me out . It seems just a matter of time until it changes how we experience visual media. These just look so damn persuasive, and I have to imagine they’re only going to get better. Or worse, depending on how you look at it.

Like this, from YouTube EZRyderX47: a compelling deepfake recasting of Back to the Future, featuring Tom Holland as Marty and...

Love Is Blind creator reveals unaired engagements and late-night dates you won't see on the Netflix hit

Love may or may not be blind, but fans of Netflix’s latest reality hit have definitely been left in the dark about a few things.

Love Is Blind is a “social experiment” that asks 30 men and women to make love connections and get engaged before seeing even a photo of their potential spouse. Fans who binged all five of the episodes released Thursday saw six couples meet in person and leave “the...

Watch The Delicate Tranquility Of A 2,872 Horsepower Dodge Viper Dyno Pull

While many car manufacturers were finding clever ways to squeeze hundreds of horsepower out of three and four-liter engines, Dodge did what Dodge does best and just made a pushrod engine with ten huge pistons, each made by melting down an entire Dodge Neon.

The resulting 8.0-liter engine was not enough and thus later increased to 8.3 liters, and again to 8.4 liters. This is basically the...
