Muggsy Bouges & Manute Bol

Here we have a picture of Muggsy Bogues and Manute Bol.  Look how big that fool is, and look how little that other fool is!!


Manute Bol is the tallest player to ever play in the NBA, measuring in at an enormous 7'7".  The man also only weighed 230 lbs. Talk about a string bean....


Muggsy Bogues is the shortest player to ever play in the NBA. He stood at a whopping 5'3", 136 lbs. Dude was tiny.

Kobe Bryant, 11 years old...


I wonder if any of the people in this photo knew he would grow up to be the greatest of all time... It's crazy that it looks like Kobe, just as a little kid. I'm digging his flat top for sure.

I wonder if he knew he would have millions of fans, all over the globe? Millions of dollars from shoe contracts? Must be nice to be the greatest...

Whistler Blackcomb XXS tilt-shift video


Even though it doesn't feel like it here in sunny Southern California, winter is in full swing.  In less desirable other parts of the country, people are snowed in their houses, wishing they were lucky enough to be enjoying 75-80 degree weather in January.

This video gets me in the mood for snow. Good thing I'm going to Mammoth next weekend... (yes!)


Here it is in all it's glory. You all know how much I love miniature photography..

Diamond Encrusted Baby Skull? Really?

This piece is called "For Heaven's Sake" by British artist Damien Hirst.


I'm not too sure why anyone in their right mind would waste the time or money to do something like this. Must be one weird guy.

The skull is cast in platinum, and covered with over 8,100 diamonds. 8,100 DIAMONDS!!

Aiaiai | TMA-1 Headphones


These TMA-1 Headphones from Aiaiai are do damn sick! Flat Black, nothing else. It's nice to see a company take a step back on the marketing side and offer a headphone that's just plain cool...

And the best part is, they were designed with the help of some of the biggest DJ's in the world (A-Trak, Boys Noize, Erol Alkan, MSTRKRFT, and 2manyDJs a.k.a. Soulwax), so they should have the sound to go with the looks.

They better sound good, costing a fairly steep $240 (180 euros). Yea, they'll ship from Denmark, so that's kinda cool...

Jets Defeat Pats; Advance to AFC Championship

The New York Jets defeated the (heavily favored) New England Patriots 28-21. That means the Jets are headed to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in their second straight AFC Championship game.

ESPN | Rapid Reaction: Jets vs. Pats


For the record, I pretty much called the outcome of that game:


This should be a defensive match-up for the ages, but I feel like the Jets might be able to pull this one off...

My Prediction: Jets by 3
