Who better to show us the incredible art at Burning Man than Met friend and professional HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff? This was the third year he attended the week-long annual event held in the scorching hot Nevada desert, which he simply describes as "always different."
"It's the only place in the world you can go where things are always different but always awesome,"…
What happens when the "Invisible Man" has a little too much coffee? He gets wired! Sculptor Ruth Jensen created the Coffee Man in order to challenge her "wiring limits."

Don't be fooled, realistic as he is, he is not real. " I like to use the human form as a way of exploring the nature of what we consider to be "real" and how we react when our visual perceptions of this reality are challenged. In our modern society we have become obsessed with our outward appearance, and now with modern technology we are able to alter this in almost anyway we desire. How does this outward change affect us and how we are…
As we go through life we often think about why we're here, what the meaning of life is. In these photos, photographer Rodney Smith shows us a man who's in search of these answers, a man who's life's quest is to find himself. Shot in black and white, the curious man travels far and wide, only to find that the real answers lie within him.…
What does the new modern man look like and how does he dress? If I had it my way, he would dress like Jon Kortajarena, here for Tom Ford. New modern luxury looks like this. Sure the glasses are a bit geeky but the style is just right. Mix and match patterns, add texture to your suits, make it unexpected, give us a show. Be daring, be different, and most of all be…

Expect collaborations with producers Kanye West, No I.D. and Timbaland, as well as musician contributions from… Continue
I've seen this video float around the web for some time now but only today did I truly come to appreciate it. This one lone fella just starts shaking it like no one's business and then suddenly others started to join him. One, two, three..and then a massive crowd followed.
Here's what Seth Godin had to say about it.
My favorite part happens just before the first minute mark. That’s when guy #3 joins the group. Before him, it was just a crazy…Continue

Has this man discovered the one, invisible jetpack left by our alien friends or is he just completely loco in the brain-o? Either way, you can't help but love this idea. Max "Bunny" Sparber throws on his invisible jetpack and putters around our favorite city, San Francisco.
Why does he do it? According to him it's because "there is no better way to be a tourist than by gently floating by the… Continue
Absolutely love this short video created by Stuart O'Keeffe for Populous' song Man Overboard. As you know I have a thing for monsters, add in a groovy song and you've got a music video that's nothing short of awesome.
One of my friends passed me along this video. I think it does a good job at shedding some light on our current economic crisis. It's done tastefully and it feels raw and gritty, much like the times that lay before us. let me know what you think.
Also if you can I'd watch it in HD at this link. The image quality is a whole lot… Continue

If you can sit through this 8+ min video you'll enjoy a nice story about a man who is convinced he has hidden superpowers. He seeks out his archenemy, hoping that it will help him discover his true powers.
This film was an exam made by students in Norwary, from The University of Bergen. More fun than the actual story is the idea that they had a hell of a fun time making… Continue
In his own words:
"The pictures are simple enough: the people in the photos have been digitally removed and replaced with drawings. Yeah, I know: anyone can trace a drawing. But so what? I am doing it, and you're not ... Maybe the pictures illustrate the idea that we all want to remove ourselves from life, and replace ourselves with fictional, self-created versions of… Continue
A darling "advert" a.k.a. commercial with aK accent for Lynx deodorant, Axe's British-brand cousin, tells the story of how the first metro was created, and encourages the modern man to "Unleash the Man Leather". Think of it as "Metro Begins".
Lynx took the marketing a step further, and published a study that showed men who used Lynx deodorant were seen as more attractive by females than men who used a "placebo" deodorant with no fragrance. But it was not a…Continue

I feel for this poor bloke. As an unskillful snow athelete myself, I've come pretty close to facing the same fate.
In a bizarre incident that will surely lead to litigation (or an out-of-court settlement), a skier at Colorado's ritzy Vail ski resort was left dangling upside down and pantsless from a chairlift last Thursday morning.
The 48 year old skier and his young son (the horror!) boarded a high-speed chairlift. The lift's fold-down seat was not… Continue
