“[My brother Ethan and I] were at a movie theater together with our families a year or two ago in San Francisco, coming down from a movie, and we saw there was a little booth set up with Big Lebowski posters on it and a young woman sitting on the other side of this table, maybe 17 or 18 years old, and Ethan stopped and said, “What is this?” And she said, “Well, we show The Big Lebowski every night and people come dressed up in costumes. You should come, you’ll like it. It’s fun.”
It is a Sunday morning in late October. I am a 29-year-old male from the Midwest who grew up playing football. The first of six NFL games kicks off in less than a half-hour and I have no intention of watching any of them.
I don’t love football the way I used to.
Meet Hank Butitta, an architect who, as part of his Master’s Final Project at the University of Minnesota, bought a used school bus off Craig’s List for $3,000 and made it into a truly mobile home.
Originally, Butitta had planned to build a tiny cabin on an 80-acre plot owned by his grandfather north of the Wisconsin Dells. When the potential costs added up, he took the tiny cabin idea to the only natural alternative: a school bus. Only continue reading if you’re willing to experience that Dammit-that-bus-is-cooler-than-my-actual-house feeling.
I am not a Halloween person. Never have been. Even as a kid, if Halloween fell on a weekday, I remember constantly checking the time while trick-or-treating and thinking to myself, It’s so late. I’m going to be so tired at school tomorrow.
Nowadays, I’m the type who might come up with a brilliant costume idea in mid-March, but come Halloween, I’m completely miffed. I end up staying in, turning off all of the lights and watching Netflix on my iPad. Maybe I’ll even watch a scary movie if things really get crazy.
It’s always fun to guess what the most popular Halloween costumes will be each year, and the good people at Sioux Falls, S.D.-based visual marketing agency Lemonly tend to be spot-on when it comes to this. This is the third consecutive year they have unveiled their Halloween costumes infographic. It just went live a few minutes ago, but chances are you’ll be seeing it around the Interwebs quite a bit between now and Oct. 31.
Bottom line is that if you’re planning to wear one of the costumes below, you’re probably not alone:
The Minnesota Vikings (1-4) will start newly acquired quarterback Josh Freeman Monday night against the New York Giants. Freeman will be the third starting quarterback for the Vikings this season, which probably indicates OH MY GOD WE’RE NEVER GOING TO WIN ANOTHER GAME AGAIN.
Cancel that order of stadium, people of Minnesota. This ship is sinking fast.
While we were busy swooning over Bryan Cranston’s high-school-chemistry teacher-turned-druglord in Breaking Bad, apparently a new drug hit the streets and its effects are completely nauseating. Seriously, grab a bucket.
Nash Grier (above) is a 15-year-old high school sophomore from Davidson, N.C. He is not an actor, reality television star or musical artist. He is, by most measures, a very average teenage boy.
He also happens to be one of the most followed Viners on the planet.
Surely you remember Vine. Earlier this year, it was the next big thing in social media. The mobile app-based network allowed users to parse together as many video cuts as they could fit into six seconds to create a clip that loops infinitely much like a GIF.
