CELEBRITIES & MODELS

Rihanna's Fashion Evolution

Rihanna has had a drastic journey from unknown Barbados girl to international household name and her image and fashion sense has gone through a change that has been every bit as radical. Since 2005, the Barbadian pop princess has morphed from a stone-washed-denim-skirt-and-long-hair-weave-wearing teenager to a high fashion diva with a punk edge; one of the greatest transformations in music style history. The photo gallery below shows the many faces and fashions of Rihanna through the years.

Anne Hathaway Gets Leggy On Kimmel

Here’s Anne Hathaway looking red hot and getting seriously leggy on last night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Now the last time we saw Hathaway I was utterly shocked that her plentiful breasts were nowhere to be found, which is the case here as well, but thankfully we get to gawk at her distractingly killer pair legs. Hell, this is so much of a shwingtastic legfest that I wouldn’t even care if she were topless. Ok, that’s a straight out lie, but hot damn does she have great legs. Enjoy the screen caps and check out the video to see everything in motion.

Carmen Electra - Still Hot. Still Too Good for Us

Blah, blah, Carmen Electra is still too hot for us, blah. I cannot believe that she is still so amazing. The poster of her that I ... admire... every night looks exactly like the gallery below. It's incredible. I guess money does buy happiness. I.e., the ability to not age. And cool stuff.

Scarlett Johansson To Play Sex Addict Alien

Awesome casting news of the day. Scarlett Johansson has signed on for Under the Skin, a sci-fi film directed by Jonathan Glazer who did Sexy Beast. “Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes."

Westland Michigan Mud Festival Lets Kids Play Dirty

This festival certainly isn't good, clean fun. A mud festival in Westland, Mich., let kids play dirty on July 12. Children ages 12 and under had a chance to frolic in the muck at Wayne County's 2011 Mud Day, held at Hines Park-Nankin Mills Area, according to MyFoxDetroit. The 24th annual Mud Day drew more than 1,000 kids -- not to mention 20,000 gallons of water and 200 tons of topsoil, The Detroit Free Press reports. Thankfully for parents, the fire department hosed kids off afterward and handed out bags for muddy clothes, according to WOMC.

Volcano-chaser Braves Some Of Earth's Most Dangerous Situations

Most people would think themselves unlucky if they passed a volcano as it erupted, but this counts as a good day at the office for one photographer. Martin Rietze is part of a select group of volcano-chasers who seek out the exploding phenomena, and braves huge electric storms and boiling lava to get the perfect shots. The 45-year-old travels around the world's volcano hotspots, from Costa Rica to Italy, in his pursuit of Earth's greatest fiery spectacle.

Horrifying Examples of Natural Disaster Photography

Over the recent years, I have posted various types of photography on my blog from high-speed photography to the fabulous technique of wave photography. But none of those techniques are as challenging as what I am about to share today. Since the past decade, we have seen a massive increase in natural disasters including earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and storms. However, capturing the distressing moments and terrified emotions associated with natural calamities is known as “Natural Disaster Photography”. Natural disasters occur all over the place and demonstrate nature’s fury and rage on mankind. Many people attribute this changing environmental trend to global warming. To capture the terrifying and heartbreaking scenes of natural disasters is a challenging and courageous job for photographers as they put their lives in jeopardy.

Beautiful Sunset Photography

There is nothing better than to enjoy a sunset on a nice place, relax and watch live the beauty of nature. It's even better when you have a camera to snap some shots of this great moment, and this is what we have here, a collection of the most beautiful sunset photography from all over the globe.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

Enjoy Some Gratuitous Ferrari 599 GTO Porn

Ah, the Ferrari 599 GTO. It’s still got a glorious V12 engine that produces 670 horsepower. It still does zero to 60 in less than 3.3 seconds and it still tops out at 208 mph. And with just 599 slated for production, it’s still an exotic among exotics. So no, there’s nothing new to say about this beautiful machine. But Ferrari’s released a bunch of carporn, so we’re more than happy to share it. Try not to drool. And if you don’t know what makes this car so awesome, we run it down here.

Indigen Armor Introduces the NSTT Battle Ready Pickup Truck

Looking like a militarized TORC off-road racer, Indigen Armor's Non-Standard Tactical Truck is the crew-cab pickup truck you've been looking for if you're a member of a special-ops team hunting bad guys halfway around the world or fighting zombies in L.A. after the apocalypse. According to a press release, the four-door NSTT is "designed to afford soldiers greater mobility in urban, desert, woodland, jungle, mountainous, and arctic terrain. The chassis, suspension, power train and armored occupant safety cell were engineered specifically to carry large payloads across rough landscapes in denied areas." The NSTT's sheet metal appears to combine bits from Nissan's Titan and Frontier pickups and an old Toyota Hilux, but its skin and windows are tough enough to repel bullets from an AK-47 assault rifle (and, we're assuming, the teeth and nails of the undead).

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

Dodge has dropped the Street and Racing Technology motherlode on the eve of the Chicago Auto Show and first out of the gate is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 – what Eminem should've rolled in during the Super Bowl. As with anything birthed from Chrysler's in-house tuning division, the Charger SRT8 is all about the engine, so the transformation begins with the new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 putting out 465 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque – a boost of some 80 lb-ft over the old 6.1-liter mill. That torquey wave comes on at 2,900 rpm and Dodge claims that with the fitment of its Fuel Saver tech, allowing the engine to run on four cylinders when its not under load, fuel economy will improve, although Dodge isn't saying how much. Chrysler's W5A580 five-speed automatic transmission backs up the HEMI, and you can select your own gears by either slapping the AutoStick or thumbing the steering wheel-mounted paddle-shifters.

MV Agusta Builds a Bike to Make You Swoon

We have just one thing to say about the MV Agusta F3: We want one. Badly. This bit of two-wheeled heaven is everything we love about motorcycles: It is impossibly gorgeous, it is ridiculously fast, and it almost certainly handles like nobody’s business. MV boss Giovanni Castiglioni tells Hell For Leather the F3 will be “the smallest supersport ever produced.” The 675-cc inline triple is good for a claimed 140 horsepower. That, according to the guys at Hell For Leather, makes it the second most-powerful engine in its class behind the Ducati 848 Evo. Top-shelf hardware includes Marzocchi fork, Sachs shock, Brembo brakes, yada yada. Two cool bits of tech, both first in the class, include traction control and a counter-rotating crankshaft to minimize vibrations. The styling nicely updates that of the F4, which is among the most beautiful motorcycles ever. Anything this cool isn’t cheap, and the F3 is no exception. Look for a sticker price of 11,500 euros, which comes to $15,970.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Major League Baseball Bat Bottle Opener

The song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” features one glaring omission: There is zero mention of drinking in it. Maybe it’s the speed of the game or just relaxing in the stands on a summer day, but whatever it is, baseball and beer just go together. Now, even when you’re not shelling out $10 for a draft at the stadium, you can bring a little piece of the action into your home. Each Major League Baseball Bat Bottle Opener is crafted from an actual game-used bat that got either sawed off, splintered, or, if you’re lucky, picked up by Roger Clemens and “gently” hurled at Mike Piazza. Each bat bottle opener even comes with a unique hologram number to show you which game your beer-cracker was used in.

How to Take Better Pictures with Your Smartphone's Camera

Cameraphones have come a long way in the past few years, but they don't always take point-and-shoot quality pictures on the first try. Here's how to squeeze the best quality photos out of your smartphone's camera. They say the best camera is the one you have with you, but that doesn't mean it'll always give you the best-looking pictures. If you have a great shot in sight, but don't have the time to grab your DSLR or point-and-shoot, you'll have to make do with your phone's camera. Depending on your cameraphone and the lighting conditions, the results are often dull, ugly photos that are barely worth looking at later on. You can do better, though; you can take most cameraphone shots from forgetful to interesting with just a few tweaks. All phones and cameras are different, so your mileage may vary with any given tip. While most cameraphones suffer from similar weaknesses (most notably the inability to take good pictures in low light), each has its own idiosyncrasies as well. The iPhone, for example, usually takes photos with pretty good color, while the Droid often produces colors that are less than stellar. That said, most of these tips can apply to your phone and favorite camera app pretty easily.

Drones Will Be Admitted to Standard US Airspace By 2015

The skies are going to look very different pretty soon, and it’s been a long time coming. Congress finally passed a spending bill for the Federal Aviation Administration, allocating $63.4 billion for modernizing the country’s air traffic control systems and expanding airspace for unmanned planes within three and a half years. By Sept. 30, 2015, drones will have to have access to U.S. airspace that is currently reserved for piloted aircraft. This applies to military, commercial and privately owned drones — so it could mean a major increase in unmanned aircraft winging through our airspace. That’s airspace to be shared with airliners, cargo planes and small private aircraft. As it is now, drones can only use some pieces of military airspace and they can patrol the nation’s borders. Some 300 public agencies can also use drones, according to the AP, but they must be at low altitudes and away from airports.

Sir, Your Liver Is Ready: Behind the Scenes of Bioprinting

Say goodbye to donor lists and organ shortages. A biotech firm has created a printer that prints veins using a patients’ own cells. The device could potentially create whole organs in the future. “Right now we’re really good at printing blood vessels,” says Ben Shepherd, senior research scientist at regenerative-medicine company Organovo. “We printed 10 this week. We’re still learning how to best condition them to be good, strong blood vessels.” Most organs in the body are filled with veins, so the ability to print vascular tissue is a critical building block for complete organs. The printed veins are about to start testing in animal trials, and eventually go through human clinical trials. If all goes well, in a few years you may be able to replace a vein that has deteriorated (due to frequent injections of chemo treatment, for example) with custom-printed tissue grown from your own cells.
