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!

Reporter Covering ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Park Ride Could Not Cover His Mouth (Video)

We should not have done this. We should NOT have done this.
Cory James, Reporter, Action News On ABC 30

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.

Reporter reacts to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Ride at Disneyland Resort.

Hey, at least he didn’t cuss. And all things considered, he took those G’s like a G!

Technology: Walking Boat Ramp (Video)

Okay, so I will admit that when I stumbled across “Walking boat ramp gets you to shore without getting wet” as a YouTube title… I was thinking that this would involve some mega-robo-tech that would let passengers board and ‘walk them out’ to a boat; like Godzilla going back out to sea after a monster fight.

No… I do not smoke… anything.

Hard Drive Marine made this walking boat. Its landing gates unfold and pull the craft to shore so you don’t have to go in the water.
– Tech Insider

Really cool. But you KNOW that sh!t would have been epic as I imagined it! Some of you would have booked a boat trip just to ride out on the MechaDockZilla (like MechaGodzilla, just made that up off the movie name, and you LOVE the name… or you’re a hater LOL)!

Technology: Looking At The NFL In The Future Through The Microsoft HoloLens (Video)

Microsoft shows us what the future of watching the NFL might be like if we all had a HoloLens in our home.

Man! Looking at this future tech teaser trailer… In the future, inviting folks over to ‘watch the game’ is gonna seem like a DRASTIC understatement! HoloLens could change the game; at least how we watch it.

Look! Up In The Sky… It’s The DeLorean From ‘Back To The Future’ (Video)

Dude… DUUUUDE! Okay, the noon slot is usually reserved for the physically hot. But while this is no ‘Honey’ you should recognize the ‘body’ on this one. Actually, on this DRONE!

Someone made a working scaled down (but no less awesome) flying drone version of the time-traveling DeLorean from the ‘Back To The Future’ movie. Extremely nerdy, in the dopest way possible!!!

Technology: Scorpion-3 Hoverbike (Trailer)

The Scorpion-3, or S-3, is being touted as The World’s First Fully-Manned Hoverbike. Thanks to Russian startup engineering company, Hoversurf, we now have a crowd-funded hoverbike, single-seat aircraft, drone-car, drone-taxi, cargo-drone… you get it… whatever a 1-person vehicle does, the S-3 platform does – a few meters above where a motorbike does and a lot lower than where a helicopter does. The S-3 is a fully-manned, hovering quadcopter that represents a big leap in human mobility and Air Transport as a Service (ATaaS for short). Are you ready for another dream come true? That is…

Have you ever dreamed of flying with the same simplicity as riding a bike?

History Of Social Dance (Video)

You know, we really ought to be smiling (at least on the inside) when the babies are going hard with the dances they do. May not be WHAT we used to do, but you KNOW we used to go just as HARD with the moves.

Turns out that there is a reasoning and history behind it all. And it’s all good. Now, excuse me while I get my Whip-Nae-Dab on!

New GoPro Throwable Camera Lets You Capture High-Quality Aerial Footage (Video)

Wow. When the director calls out “throw” to camera 3… well, now the cameraperson will need some further clarification… Because GoPro, that’s why! Watch the clip above: You can aim, throw and shoot this GoPro (as many times as needed) to get the perfect aerial shot. Whyyyyy are we not filming touchdown receptions with a ‘football cam’ yet? Get on that GoPro. ASAP. And get Cam Newton to speak on it (Cam’s Aerial Cam, Air Cam Cam, ThrowPro…something more catchy).

Hey! What about a dodgeball cam?? Imagine commentating someone getting BLASTED in the face, huevos, guts, glutes or somewhere sensitive (yet hilarious) from the ‘incoming!’ point of view. Could be some fun tech! And you can invest in it via the link below.

Think Baseball Games Are Too Long? So Does MLB (Video)

Baseball. If you’re a fan, you love it; including all its imperfections… the duration of the game, the pace, the lack of action, etc. But those things will have to be fixed to attract new fans; fans that are not currently ‘into’ the sport. Major League Baseball (MLB) knows. Vox knows. And now there’s a video to let us know. All that’s left is to right the ship or write the sport off as America’s Pastime.

MLB games are now longer than epic movies, but it wasn’t always that way.
