Action Bronson – ‘The Symbol’ [New Video]



Vienna Goes Verticle in Trafalgar Sq.

Check this video from our buddies at Vice, mental acrobatic displays on a vertical slant!

At 21m high this is the biggest structure erected in the iconic square and featured a lineup of art, music, light and aerobatic displays. The show was based around the many creative elements that make up modern day Vienna, from the obvious; Viennese Waltz, Gustav Klimt, to the rapidly flourishing electronic music scene, the food and the wine. The show played four times a day from 25th to the 26th of October, and was watched over by the world’s highest bungee jump record holder Jochen Schweizer and his team.

Between the wonderfully bizarre performances, members of the public were invited to test their nerves by braving a vertical walk down the face of the wall… not one for the faint hearted! (i.e. me)

Daisy Lowe vs. Xperia

To celebrate the launch of the Xperia™ ray, a new HD smartphone from Sony Ericsson here are some pictures of the ‘effin gorgeous Daisy Lowe…


And for those who like moving images, here are a few sweet videos shot on aforementioned phone of the aforementioned hot as hell Daisy Lowe, mostly ‘behind the scenes’ as she entertains her hipster mates!

Part 1.

Part 2.

Part 3.

The videos do look very nice, and I guess you could describe the style/look/feel of the videos as ‘current’. Not sure how much post-production effects have been applied (I was kind of concentrating on Daisy) but it sure does look a hell of a lot better than the videos on my phone!

Sign up here for victory

Two athletes don their specially contructed boiler suits, with two usable arms and three legs, and work as a team to shoot pool.

This is table football but with a furious addition. Instead of one ball, a whole bucket of balls is dumped in and the game lasts until all the balls have been scored.

The concept is simple: sing karaoke on the crosstrainer. There’s a calorie counter attached and whoever burns the most calories is the winner. Can you beat the record: 54.7 calories to Iron Maiden’s Run To The Hills. If you can your prize will involve 5,000 calories.

Two ladies stand together back to back, each holding out a handbag filled with something heavy, at arms length. This is a test of strength and stamina: whoever drops their arm first is the loser.

This is a re-work of the classic cereal box game, using a stack of six pizzas. Each athlete has to bend down and pick up a piece of pizza without using their hands. After each round a pizza box is taken off the stack and it gets lower. People have been known to take their clothes off during this event.
