Oldest Selfie Ever

This portraiture from approximately 1900 may be the oldest known selfie ever taken.

And here’s one taken sometime in October 1914 by the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna.

Congrats to the Red Sox

Here’s how one can transform “NIKE” into my favorite city “NYC” courtesy of the design shop Triboro.

Carhenge

We’ve all heard about Stonehenge located across the pond, but did you know we have our own more superior 100% ALL AMERICAN version here in the good ol’ U.S. of A? In Alliance, Nebraska (population 8,491) Jim Reinder, as a tribute to his father, built a replica of Stonehenge except instead of stones he used vintage American cars

Carhenge is a replica of England’s Stonehenge located near the city of Alliance, Nebraska on the High Plains. Instead of being built with large standing stones, as is the case with the original Stonehenge,[1] Carhenge is formed from 38 vintage American automobiles.

There is also another one made out of styrofoam in Virginia called…Foamhenge. Clap clap clap.

Master of Animated GIFs

This is the insane home-based workstation that GIF creator extraordinaire Tim Burke, a former professor of communications and speech who lectured on media theory and now Deadspin.com contributor, works from and where he quickly pumps out GIFs of noteworthy highlights (or lowlights) from various games. He spends approximately 100 hours a week here and monitors dozens of games simultaneously. He is able to view and record from 28 sources at once thanks to his 10 monitors which are then split into eight or more mini-screens.

In the understatement of the year Burke explained, “I am not able to do many other things.”

His wife’s response to all this: “I’ve done a lot of personal growth this past year.”

[Insert GIF here of her rolling her eyes.]

Center of Disneyland

Tens of thousands of visitors have probably walked right over the above tiny dot in Disneyland without nary a glance. Located near Sleeping Beauty’s castle this dot represents the geographic center of Disneyland.

Browse some pictures from my life over the past few weeks, such as the one above where I couldn’t resist joining the other hordes of Banksy groupies at one of the artist’s more recent stencils. This one can be found on the corner of 79th and Broadway because nothing screams counter culture street art audience like the Upper West Side.
