Soul Flyers Catch Their Plane… In Wingsuits! (Video)

This is f**king INSANE! I have often said that you will not catch me jumping out of a perfectly good working plane. So, SOMEBODY goes, and films, not just one, but TWO wing flyers. And two crazy fools jump off a cliff and fly right INTO a plane, entering from the side, and LANDING inside!

Technology/Gaming: Learn To Make Car Repairs In Virtual Reality (Video)

Perhaps not an age-old question, but a cool one to answer: “Can I learn to fix race cars without risking damage to something expensive (like a car, or myself)?” “Oh wait, follow up, I don’t have a car, garage or tools of my own; does that matter much?. Oh, and wait, do I have to get ‘dirty’ and stuff?” Hahaaa!

Fix your car…in VR!

It’s time to get your car ready for racing without getting your hands dirty. “Wrench” is an indie game for virtual reality that lets players assemble photorealistic components for a custom race car. Players diagnose problems with their speed machines and try to fix them.

The game is still in development, and the developers say it won’t include any driving simulation either.

Well, there’s your answer!

Remember When That Cliffside Shop Was Giving Out Free Jackets? (Video)

Ah! Here’s what looks like a winner for best response to when bae pops up like, “Honey, let’s go shopping,” all excited and *ish. Just make sure bae’s not a climbing enthusiast, and you can have your weekend back… Sheeeeit! They haven’t made a jacket worth a death-defying rock climb. Sorry, so NOT sorry. HA!

A pop-up clothing shop lets you get warm 300 feet up.

Cocona set up a shop 300 feet in the air in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon. Climbers earned the clothing simply by making the ascent up the canyon’s Bastille Wall — no purchase necessary.

Cocona wants to show off their clothing, which is based on “37.5 technology” — it keeps climbers’ body temperature at 37.5 degrees Celsius, or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Many climbers claim that temperature is ideal for endurance.

There was a Guinness World Record for largest basketball lesson? Yup, and there is a new one now! Shout and respect to KD. Looks like he is living life right and doing dope things with his mills; plus doing it for others, across the globe. That’s how you build a legacy that matters – living life loud, and helping others along the way.

70 Year Olds Try Smoking Weed For The First Time (Video)

Bwaaahahaaa! THIS is why, though I am not a consumer, I am cool with having the doobie-doers around. No personal politics in this video one way or the other. Just some dudes who have gone all their lives without taking even one hit off a joint, now deciding to fire up and fuse up. The result is informative and incredibly funny (looking at you, Graham)!

Plus… there are snacks!

See All The Nice Rides At The Atlanta Car & Bike Show (Video)

Cars, cars, cars are the stars! Shining liked they were just dipped in the sweetest glaze. Couple of bikes in this vid, too. If you see a fly & flashy motor vehicle and it gets your motor running, this visual has much whip appeal for YOU!

(Shout to photographer Ralph Lenard aka DaMan WithDaPlan for going HAM on the cam when he attended this cars-travaganza!)

So dope! I hope it still works…

I was playing with this Hip-Hop Birthday Google Doodle widget thing Friday and was getting it in, thanks to some snazzy app ware and on point tutelage from Hip-Hop icon Fab 5 Freddy. Watch, learn, play, enjoy. I certainly am!

(Shout to the homie Demetria for this epic share!)

‘Black Nat Geo’ Documents The Hood Version Of A ‘Friars Club’ (Video)

Booking? Corning? Hmm… never heard it called that. But this Black Nat Geo clip takes a hilarious look at homies verbally jabbing each other with jokes for sport in their ‘natural habitat.’

The eFoil is like motorboat-meets-surfboard. If you wanna surf but are living somewhere landlocked, now you can just go the nearest lake or river and ride out on the waves. Cost is just north of $6,100 US.

(Actually, no waves required. It’s motorized.)

Recess In Real Life: Watch These Professional Tag Players Play (Video)

Because YES! Whoever picks this up, tell me where and when you are broadcasting, and I am tuning in. Promise. Bonus: Got an idea to amp this up. Put all this in a ‘danger room’ setup (like Gladiators, but cooler) and have folks slinging heavy high-speed burgundy dodgeballs. Dodgeball AND tag to the extreme!

(Maybe next work on a ‘Four Square meets Double Dutch’ game; or sandlot football where you bust through a team’s Red Rover line to score. Solid gold ideas!)

Hobby/Craft: How To Make A Mini Crossbow (Video)

Hmm. Doesn’t look all that dangerous. More like hobby/crafty/fidgety fun. Of course, a mini crossbow that shoots toothpicks might cause a bit more of a sting than a paper airplane or a spitball. Schools can handle any ‘offenders’ who misuse this toy in the classroom: detention or whatever punishment they are doling out nowadays. Let’s just enjoy this vid for what it is, a cool do-it-yourself how-to.

If you don’t feel like making one, it looks like you can buy a toothpick crossbow… still, but the number of sellers may be dwindling. Follow the ‘more’ link below to see why. Watch the video first though.

Girls Gone Viral: Black Beach Weekend 2017 (Biloxi, Mississippi, USA) [Video]

Wowzerrrrs ma’ams and sirs! By now you know, or ought to know, that I am from Alabama. Begs the question of me: WHERE did all them thick Alabama molasses asses in this vid come from, and WHY did they all flood Mississippi like this and not tell me???

Oh, Black Beach Weekend. They still do it like that? Apparently so. And I’ain’even know must be getting old *sigh*

Now, it might just be me, but I must warn y’all that there is a HIGH degree of ratchet roaming about. Not mad at that. Folks getting ratchet provide the best batches (drink, smoke, photos, videos, and all kinds of ASStonishing things). The music you’ll hear is the perfect soundtrack for all that hood hectic (fair warning). Young Black folks going WILD for sure. But I saw some hustlers handling biz, too. Every archetype from the trickster/gambler, to the curbside fry cook, to a weed edibles salesman. Then you see folks walking and flashing the fly liquors and folks riding in the big body vehicles with even bigger rims. All that kind of stuff I remember from back in the day for the most part.

But THEN you get new school star power. Sure, rumpshakers alone will get views. But how about folks who are already viral stars out there? Coming to the stage NOLA’s own PATTIWHACK and Dancing DanRue (around the 7 minute mark) getting live baaaaby with the ‘Peter Piper pick a pan… Yeeeeaaaah!’

Hahaaa! I’m not mad at y’all overall Biloxi (but some YouTube commenters are apparently… chill will’ya… sheezus). Do you! But at least send home some of them juicy ‘Bama yum-yums though.

Recreation: 5 Amazing Toys For Grown Men (Video)

Because I am not playing with y’all… I have started (re)collecting the Transformers toys of my youth. Living the dream! I am trying to get the original G1 Autobots (all 18, including big rig Optimus Prime) and original G1 Decepticons (all 10, including the ‘ugly gun’ version of Megatron).

So that’s out there. Get at me on here or on Twitter if you have a lead to buy outright for the CHEAP! Used is more than okay. I’m not looking for collector’s or mint edition. I’m gonna play with mine… PAUSE!

(Wait, is it noon yet? Because all ‘pause’ is off for the nooner. Just saying.)

Alright. In case my tastes are a bit too nerdcore for you, here’s a more ‘hip’ list of cool toys for grown-ups: Manuka Gyroscope, Bottle Rocket Launcher, UGears Models, The ForeverSpin, and Delorean Time Machine. The video above gives us the skinny on some phat fun stuff.

(Did I use ‘phat’ right? Been a while. Plus, I’m a nerd; and I’m pretty proud of it #RevengeOfTheNerds)

New Animated Lego Video Game Features Many Marvel Universe Heroes Battling Kang The Conqueror Across Time (Trailer)

Ohhhhh! This is a trailer for a video game? I thought it was teasing some kind of epic movie – like how they did the Lego Batman joints. Maybe they will make a Marvel mashup movie down the road. At least we get this dope trailer. Game’s probably fun, too.

Go head-to-head with the time-traveling Kang The Conqueror in an epic battle across Chronopolis, from Ancient Egypt and The Old West to Sakaar and New York City in 2099. Along the way, gamers will be able to take control of a host of iconic characters, from Cowboy Captain America from the past to Spider-Man 2099 from the future along with Thor, Hulk, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Green Goblin, and dozens of other Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains.

Thor calling out Kang The Conqueror though. Epic!

Baaahahaaaa! Words you do not want to hear in a human interest piece for the local news. Heck, you don’t wanna be the one saying them while doing the story… on an amusement ride… for Guardians Of The Galaxy. That said, THIS dude’s ride reaction is PRICELESS! Watch. Just watch.
