The Tenth Annual No-Pants Subway Ride: 2012 Edition

So you’re done with the excessive holiday eating? What better way to strut your new-found pounds than with the annual No-Pants Subway Ride. What originally began as a 7-person prank has now evolved into an internationally observed day of silliness. More than 4,000 people took their trousers off yesterday in New York City’s subways, and thousands more reportedly joined in around the world. Improv Everywhere organizes the annual event, where the sexy strap-hangers begin their train rides all over the city and then converge onto Union Square Park for an impromptu celebration of sorts.

Digital Surgery: Another Example of Why You’ll Never Be This Beautiful

There are those of us who are born with average looks, and there are those who are genetically gifted. Folks with great bone structure, greater than average height and fast metabolisms have always had it a little easier in life. But even those people are trolls compared to the soulless aliens that grace our magazine covers and billboards. Here’s an in-depth look at the birth of a mutant. Continue reading »

Trigger Finger: This Is Why I Don’t Dine-In at Fast Food Joints

image

Dear [Insert Fast Food Venue Here],

I was considering your $5 foot-long deal today. I planned on grabbing a window seat so that I could people watch as I eat. I like to gaze out of windows in general, and with those gorgeous new 10′ panes, your venue seemed like the perfect lunch.

But you had to go and paste huge posters on your windows at seated eye-level. So that 75% of the window seats essentially become non-window seats. Why go through the trouble of designing such a modern establishment with huge windows if you’re just going to render them useless?

I understand you want to lure hungry people in with your marketing deals. That’s cool. But you can place the posters at 6′ and above, and everyone wins. No?

Trigger Finger: Rock Climbing for Toddlers

image

Playgrounds and Jungle gyms have undergone drastic changes since yours truly was able to play in them without suspicious looks from concerned mothers. This particular example in Long Island City made me giggle.

This looks to me like some kind of beginner rock-climbing thing. Did the playground designers imagine kids wearing junior climbing gear, coating their hands with Johnson’s Baby Powder to give them a better grip for the trecherous feat?

Do the parents in this newly gentrified LIC neighborhood encourage their spawn to “rock climb” at the playground? Do they hope their kid will someday grow up and climb the “real” wall at the $100-a-month gym? No. The parents don’t even know about their kid’s extreme sports adventures. Whenever I’ve passed by, its just been bored kids with chatty nannies.

Fashion Week Man-Stuff Preview: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Convertible

Just in case you forget who puts all this Fashion Week hoopla together, Mercedes-Benz kindly reminds you as soon as you enter the lobby with this stunning SLS AMG Convertible. This panty-dropping beast features Mercedes’ 6.3 liter engine which produces a disgusting 518hp and 465ft-lbs of torque. Mercedes claims this is the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine to date. But with looks like this, do you really care? Do you really need the 5.5 liter Turbo, or [God forbid] the 6.0 liter V12 bi-turbo? Well, depending on how short/fat/bald/old/Alpha/small-penis you are, you may want to consider the latter, with a tarmac-defacing 604hp/738lb-ft. Continue reading »

Fashion Week: JSong Way

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is upon us and we’re kicking off the festivities with some images from yesterday’s action.

Way Zen started her JSong Way line over twenty years ago. She took a trip to the orient and quickly fell in love with the rich embroidery artisans were producing. Zen has since been producing rich, hand-crafted articles that drape a woman’s body very elegantly. JSong Way focuses on details. By using unique craft patters that eliminate visible seams when working with textures, an aesthetic balance is achieved in every individual design. Gallery after the break: Continue reading »
