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!

The Reign Supreme B-Boy Battle @ Bumbershoot 2015 In Seattle

Once again I was back in Seattle Labor Day Weekend to cover the Bumbershoot Festival.  If you are not familiar with Bumbershoot it is a 3 day festival focused on Music, Art, Comedy and celebrating the city of Seattle, WA.  This year the festival brought back the BBoy battle competition.  I was able to get exclusive access to the behind the scenes of this competition thanks to my friend DV One who along with DJ Lean Rock provided the sounds for this event.  This was organized by the Reign Supreme collective out in Seattle.  I have footage of dancers from Seattle to Poland to Taiwan in the video clips above and after the jump.  Enjoy and once again you can catch us in Seattle next year covering this great music festival once again!

Technology: The World’s First Supersonic Skydiver (Video)

Okay, I tagged this one “technology” but it should really be “adventure.” This past Sunday, Austrian former paratrooper Felix Baumgartner finally got to fulfill his latest mission… to skydive from over 24 miles up AND become the first human to break the sound barrier without a vehicle! Interestingly enough, Chuck Yeager celebrated the 65th anniversary of his breaking the sound barrier (in a supersonic vehicle). Whew! These guys are a couple of man’s men… and NERDS (can’t do this and be stupid y’all)… at the same damn time! Big up to space research like this… and to those who BOLDLY go where none have gone before. Respect!

Peep the congratulatory Tweet from NASA:


‘The dive was, in fact, more than just a stunt. NASA is eager to improve its blueprints for future spacesuits.’

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

One GIANT LEAP for mankind… sponsored by Red Bull. Now, THIS ought to sell some energy drinks!
