Changing The Game: Lacrosse Comes To Harlem (Video)

Up top, it’s all about the blacktop. The lyric, “Basketball is my favorite sport,” not lacrosse… right? Well, these kids are into it AND it’s helping them level up to a better shot in life.

Basketball courts may still dominate north of 125th Street in New York City, but more kids than ever are taking up lacrosse as their sport of choice. We followed Javon to hear what his friends think about lacrosse and how he plans to make his mark on the game.

Watch. Might have to change that lyric.

Lifestyle: You’re In Los Angeles. You’re High. What Do You Do Next? (Video)

A weed travel show. Excellent idea! And an appropriately laid-back episode to boot.

On VICE’s weed travel show ‘BLUNT REVIEWS,’ we trek to places where weed is legal to review things a cannabis-consuming tourist can do while they’re stoned. On this episode, VICE’s Darlene Demorizi spent a day getting blazed in Los Angeles, where she cured her munchies at Pink’s Hot Dogs, a historic restaurant that tops franks with guacamole and nacho cheese. Then she unwound at Lit Yoga, a THC-friendly studio, and stopped by Puff Pass & Paint to make a little art over a glass of CBD-infused wine.

Glidecycling Looks Fun (Video)

…at least more fun than just jogging.

This bike without pedals is actually better for your joints than running.
– In The Know Innovation

Yep, the Glidecycle may well change the way you think about running (or gliding, or um ri-cycling, or… ah let marketing figure out a name for it).

2 Chainz Sets His Assistant Up For The Most Expensivest ‘Wet Dream’ (Video)

Been a good minute since we posted a ‘Most Expensivest’ episode, right. So let’s run it. And no… NO! I will not say ‘pause’ for the title of this write-up. Trust me. It fits (not saying ‘pause’ here either LOL).

2 Chainz hangs out with mermaids after exploring the high seas in an underwater jetski. And he meets the lucky winners of the Least Expensivest contest.

Make Your Own Monowheel (Video)

Ha! A DIY project to make a kooky kind of cool thing. Can you ride out on one wheel? Sure you can! Watch and see how YOU can.

Now… if you do build one of these to ride, do NOT brake too hard. They call that ‘gerbiling’… and the fun stops for you (though onlookers might get a laugh or seven out of your wipeout).

BeingSean: Friday Night Races And A Happy Father’s Day Weekend

Thank you, Andrea and Syd, for an AWESOME WEEKEND!!! I loved every minute of it. AND Happy Fathers Day guys!!!!!
– BeingSean.com

The realest talk. Give Dad what he really wants on Father’s Day, and he’ll be head-over-heels. Not because it’s required (real Dads don’t need a ‘day’ to recognize that), but just because… and out of real love. Awesome piece from the homie Sean. Check it out.

Father’s Day weekend was a little different for me this year in that Syd is spending the entire summer with her mom versus one month. See I’m used to Syd being at the house for most of the summer and this year I had to do the “I’m the summer dad” pickup for the weekend. It was… weird. 

Andrea and Syd both asked me what I wanted to do well in advance but as most dads know, we don’t need a special day to tell us we are great dads. Syd suggested we go to the Friday night drag races which is something we both enjoy doing. Andrea has never been so this was a first for her. Side note… (more)

Did You Know That Bob Ross Did Much More Than Paint On PBS? (Video)

I thought about whether or not many of you are even old enough to remember how awesome “The Joy Of Painting” and host Bob Ross were. PBS was home to some great television. And if watching Ross paint ‘happy trees’ gave you joy back in the day, too, you will likely be as wow’d as I was (in a good way) when you learn even more about the PBS icon.

He inspired generations of young people to paint, but did you know these facts about him?

A Look At The ‘Jet Capsule’ Mini Yacht (Video)

Talk about a Lil Yachty (ha)! This lil spaceship-looking Jet Capsule boat lets you explore the ocean. Pricey, but not as much as the full-size luxury yachts you see in the most bling-a-licious music visuals and such. Who needs all that and the tab anyway.

Forget a yacht — and say hello to the Jet Capsule.

If you can’t take losses. Don’t bet. Recognize that truth. Play responsibly (or maybe go throw some darts).

Yeah. Folks might call it ‘recreational betting’ but it’s not a game… Put your money under the rock and leave it for the winner. Want some tips to better your odds as a better (e.g. to collect what is under the aforementioned metaphorical rock) at the end of the day? Well, watch.

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.

– Vocativ

Well, there’s your answer!
