We spend about thirty seconds setting up a shot. Fabian Oefner spends two months. Each of these photographs from his "Disintegrating" series took about that long to create, but, clearly, the results are worth it. The Swiss artist took apart model cars and suspended the various pieces to give the illusion that the cars were exploding in the picture. No bombs or laser beams used, just some ingenuity and a crap-ton of patience.
With around 28,000 entries coming in, the winners of Red Bull's Illume Sports Photography contest sure earned their snap-shooting medals.

The floor of the San Diego Convention Center during Comic-Con is way beyond packed. In fact, it gets so full that cosplayers just spill out into the streets of The Gaslamp Quarter and jam them too.

The first time I saw a Scion cruising down the road about 5 or 6 years ago, I thought “What is that?” It didn’t really impress me or impact me much at all, but I remembered the name Scion and I began to see the Toyota owned company grow.
Unbeknownst to me, I was not only witnessing a new outlet for modern ... continue reading
The ultimate goal of most New Year's resolutions is more time without pants. Eating healthy, working out more and getting a better job all point in that direction.

It's time once again for every red-blooded male's favorite time of year - Halloween. You might get presents at Christmas and pie at Thanksgiving, but Halloween is the gift that keeps on giving.

Vintage is all the rage these days - clothes, music, equipment, and now porn. Polaroid no longer "exists" as it once did and, oddly enough, its death as a company was the best thing that ever happened to the medium. And now that it's back, we get all the benefits. Before you stop paying attention to us and get ... continue reading
Being inside a beautiful woman's domicile is the first and last thing on a man's mind every day - regardless of whether or not it actually happens. The simple truth is that being inside her place for the first time is equal parts voyeuristic and exhibitionistic and yet somehow comfortable. Me In My Place is a site ... continue reading
Going to the doctor is one of the things that men dread most - and for good reason. The only positive thing to come out of a trip to the Doctor's office is a chance to mingle with the nurses, everything else is just pain and reprimands about how you drink too much, smoke, and don't sleep enough. If the nurses look ... continue reading
If you happen to live in the Middle East - or just have more money than God - things like champagne falling from the heavens, panties hitting the floor, and making your own islands doesn't seem that out of the ordinary. With a list of common occurrences like that, getting a big-name German car manufacturer to make ... continue reading
Marketing is something we're forced to interact with on a daily basis - whether we like it or not. None of us is immune to it because we've all ended up ordering an otherwise shitty beer in hopes that it will make us more interesting (it won't), or an even shittier towel in hopes it's really as absorbent as we ... continue reading
Art Deco was a popular international art design movement primarily inspired by the blah, blah, blah. If it doesn't have to do with cool things you can hang on your walls or your body, or park in your garage - we don't give a shit about international art design movements.
BMW will single-handedly change your ... continue reading
Tony Stamolis is not cool with the current disconnect between food and porn. Men love food and men love porn, so why not combine them? It seems crazy at first, but after a look at the pictures (NSFW!) you're bound to have one of those "why didn't I think of that?" moments. T&T&A is a pictorial collection ... continue reading
