Watch The Crashes & Smashes On ‘Fury Road’… With No Special Effects (Video)

The “Mad Max: Fury Road” trailer we posted months ago and the actual movie were loaded with every special effect and CGI bell & whistle Hollywood could ring and blow.

Well, wonder no more.

It’s Not A Game: ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Brought To Life! (Video)

This will make you go ooh, aahh, wow, and hahaaa… all over the same clip. Visual artists decided to take GTA off the game screen into the streets and make a ‘real life’ video action-drama out of it. Don’t look for plot twists or even punch lines. More like a drop kicks and punches in the eyes. Ha! Lots of gratuitous thieving and violence with gaming effects (e.g. knocking the cash out of dudes). Great clip above; with behind the scenes footage after the jump.

Eye Candy: Behind The Scenes With Tamra D (Video)

Warning: This Tamara D clip is so sexy it hurts!

You may not realize it, but there is a special type of “special” (as in “touched” in the head) we are about the ladies we display ’round noon ’round here. I don’t watch much of that ‘Chrisley’ show on USA, but his line “Class not azz” applies. We curate the video selection for as close to perfect balance between sexy and coy; that give-it-to-me-but-tease-me look and feel is what we go for. This Tamara D clip lives on that thin line. I yearn to find Honeyz like this.

Plus… She’s THICK, yo (you KNOW that’s what I like)!

Follow Tamara D on Instagram (or just anywhere, to be truthful… whew, the thirst… I admit mine).

Eye Candy: Jai Livia (Behind-The-Scenes, Part 1) [Video]

Almost perfect. Almost. Now, the model Jai Livia (aka 5StarJai) is incredible! And her on the beach… put it this way… I don’t know what the temperature was that day, but the shoot with the hot model looks like it went cool. Watch. It will have you feeling a little… warm.

So why almost you ask? The music. You know, sometimes the cussing just isn’t necessary. It just kinda goes way too hard when Future drops in with the rapping. Just saying.

Anyway, this visual experience is a very nice reminder of warmer days gone by (and coming again); with visions of lovely Jay Livia on some beach, somewhere. So nice.

Also nice: Jay Livia aka @5StarJai on Instagram. Follow her there if you want more.
