Watch: A Crazy A** Guinness World Record Breaker

Now, a quick disclaimer before I go any further: this video put me into a state of shock. If you are like me and feel the need to say “Don’t look down” when at the top of a flight of stairs, nevermind any real height, I’d perhaps advise some caution on watching this.

It’s absolutely outrageous, and a video that requires immense fortitude just to watch. Now, I know they wouldn’t show the video if the participant had gotten into trouble…but still. The sheer scale of the height mixed in with the ludicrous nature of the walk itself makes me feel a little ill.

The video takes in daredevil and all-around cool guy Pablo Signoret. Pablo is a legend of the game and is one of the most daring people that I have ever come across. By walking between two massive mountains and a river on just this tiny bit of rope, I think it’s safe to say that he’s proven his mettle.

Insane

Walking it totally blindfolded, too, he goes from one end to the next in the most outrageous manner possible. I’m not even joking when I say that I struggle to walk down a street with the same coolness and accuracy, so it’s a feat indeed.

Honestly, though…. what could possess someone to take on such a risk!?

It’ a truly epic watch, and one that I recommend everyone takes the time to look into. The sheer nerves it would take to carry out such an event is truly mystifying. I was so impressed with his quality, and really found it to be one of the most impressive videos that I’ve seen in some time.

But yeah, you wouldn’t find me near a height of such barely understandable magnitude. What an experience it must be (if you like to terrify yourself with fear of death). Show this to anyone in your social group who, like me, cannot contain their fear at the slightest drop.

We want to be better…So if you found a mistake in this article, please let us know

Do You Vacation Like The Celebs?

When it’s time to go on vacation, we try and find a good combination of location Vs. price. It’s obvious that we try as much as we can to have a vacation experience that will last until our next, so sometimes the price is not as important as fun. Some of these celebrities have the same thoughts when picking a vacation destination.

The only difference is that their choices are not as hard as ours. For one, they have more money. Second, they vacation more often than we do, so they can allow themselves to have a “simple” vacation now and then.

Here are some of the locations you can choose from and maybe get a glimpse of a celebrity or feel like one.

Sophie Turner

From the cold lands of Westeros to the sunny beaches of Coco Prive, a private resort in the Maldives, where no King of the North would be able to survive. We know Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, but soon enough we will be seeing much more of her, as future productions will be set free at cinemas near you.

Let her rest now, because she is going to be a very busy lady in the coming months running around the country and world for these upcoming films:
Josie and Girl Who Fell From the Sky and Time Freak and the anticipated X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

Don’t finish your Martini yet, there’s more!

A Poltergeist in a Chinese Supermarket? See for Yourselves

When we go through our daily shopping, we rarely expect anything of note or interest to happen. A conversation with an old school friend and a frivolous purchase of a new appliance bought at s sale is the most common way for the day to be exciting, right?

Well, for one woman in China, things went a little hectic for her on a typical day around the store looking at the deals she could snap up. As she made her way through the supermarket on a normal day, everything is serene and normal. As the video footage shows, the woman is just walking along in the supermarket when an item falls off the shelf behind her.

It just falls – she never goes near it, never touches it, nothing. It just falls and hits the ground. So, she decides to do the good thing and help out the staff by placing the item back on the shelf where it belonged. At that point, things got weird.

As she placed the item on the shelf, her entire body falls into a locked mode. It’s like someone hit the Off switch on her spine. She just stops moving, and everything in her hands that she was carrying falls to the floor. She stands for a few seconds before she begins to seriously convulse and then just starts to shake and move around severely.

She falls to her knees, and a blonde woman runs over to her to try and help her out. Trying to work out what is going on, the woman tries to calm the affected party down. At that point, though, the woman lets out an unnaturally, ungodly, scream into the air – it’s deeply haunting and soon alerts the entire supermarket as to what is going on.

The woman helping her is visibly shaken and falls to the floor with terror when she screams out. A man then appears to try and help her out, especially as she starts to make noises that sound like someone choking. As he tries to help her out, though, she lets out another terrifying scream and really makes everyone wonder what is happening.

A man in black approaches her and sits with her, trying to calm her down. Two other people help to keep her arms at peace, and they continue to calm her down. Without any explanation, though, people in the local area now believe that she was possessed by some kind of spirit.

They believe that the man in the black was able to ‘exorcise’ the demon from her. Even weirder, when she is ‘exorcised’ and falls to the ground afterward, you generally see things all around the place begin to move and shudder around – like a massive gust of wind blows through the store.

Is it all a well-put-together scam? A great piece of amateur artwork? Or is this woman generally going through some kind of possession when out on her weekend shop? You can decide!

Why Over-40s Should Give Up Ibuprofen

When we have a sore tooth, a sore jaw, a sore back…sore anything, inflammation is often part of the problem. This is why so many take anti-inflammatory and pain management tablets- Ibuprofen. These over-the-counter medications are taken by millions of people every day and can help us to get over a pain to get back on with our days. However, it turns out that Ibuprofen might not be such an advisable product to take for those over the age of 40…

Some studies show that it could have toxic properties for heart muscles, meaning that anyone over the age of 40 should take a deeper look at what they are taking. The FDA found in 2015 that ibuprofen comes with a few ingredients in there that, broadly, could cause problems with the heart. It could be even related to heart attacks and strokes – making it especially worthwhile dodging in your 40s!

What’s better – a sore head or a dead heart?

Many people instead turn to taking solutions like turmeric, instead, offering anti-inflammatory properties without that big warning needed on the bottle. Turmeric is a great solution for this, and can easily be taken due to its high polyphenol count making it very good for the body indeed.

Simply mix it in with a cup of warm water, some honey and some lemon juice and voila! It can be an excellent way to help alleviate that pain without taking in anything that, broadly, our bodies should be avoiding. Ginger, too, is a good source thanks to the fact it can stop inflammation at its source thanks to the power antioxidant effects, ensuring that inflammation and joint acidity can both be minimized and, when possible, neutralized entirely.

Another good and natural source is to use capsaicin, which is found in red peppers. It’s a very easy product to apply, either done so in a cream or a gel form, and can be a great way to help release pain in our joints and muscles.

So, while there are so many natural options to fight inflammation and give your body the help it needs to stay strong and healthy, you should empty your cupboard of such synthetic solutions. As ever, be sure to go and check with a medical professional and make sure you are making the right choice – but, past the age of 40, ibuprofen should probably be minimized and, if possible, not taken at all for the foreseeable future.

Community Helps WW2 Hero Keep Moving with Chair Assistance

Time catches up with us all – even heroes who helped us all to be here today. When Harvey Djerf, 95, began to struggle to make his walks in the morning, his local Minnesota community noticed him. He goes for a walk twice a day to try and stay in shape, but it’s beginning to get a little tougher on him – he wasn’t resting enough, for a start.

Neighbours got together and started to put little chairs out on the lawn for him to make sure he could take a little break as he walked. At the time of writing, 12 chairs in total had been placed out for him to sit down and use when he was on the move.

Speaking about the act of kindness, Harvey was delighted.

”It’s kind of snowballed now. I’m up to 12 chairs now. They must’ve seen that I was pausing and catching my breath and that’s when they probably took pity on me.” he said.

On warm days, people come and serve him little lemonade and cookies to help him make sure he could keep on going. How awesome is that!?

He’d served as part of the 126th Anti-Aircraft Gun Battalion, who played a major role in taking out German bombers. For 33 months, he served across Europe before coming back home to the US. Having stayed in the Plymouth area for over six decades, he has long been a well-loved part of the community and they stayed in a home that he and his wife had built. Until his wife had a stroke and they moved into assisted living, they had stayed in the same spot.

What kind of nice gestures have you seen in your local community to warm the heart? Anything in particular?

Cracker Barrel Lovers Tour Every US Venue

As one of the most enjoyable cracker venues in the word, Cracker Bar restaurants are up there with the best drive-through foods that you get to enjoy. However, one couple decided that they loved Cracker Barrel so much, they would make a trip to every single Cracker Barrel restaurant in the whole of the USA!

The Happy Couple’s Adventure Begins

Ray and Wilma Yoder of Goshen, Indiana, are happily married farmers who have been together for the best part of 60 years. As Ray, an RV driver delivering them to dealerships and finding buyers, drove around the States for years he got used to the idea of stopping in for a quick bite to eat.

He stopped at a Cracker Barrel nearly 40 years ago, and says that at first he “wasn’t too impressed” but as he continued to use them as he drove around, it became a familiarly enjoyable experience for him.

With one in most towns, it became easy to eat in this way; always capable of finding one even in the smallest of towns. After years of eating them, though, and their kids grew older Wilma started to join him when he was on the road. They would go to all manner of Cracker Barrels together, and then decided that they should go and visit them all!

A Quest Complete

With the help of their daughter, Doris, the couple began to track down all of the best options for them to go and look at, divulging details on everything from store opening times to locations so that her parents could fulfil their wish of visiting every last one of them.

Wilma, sadly, suffered a brain aneurism and they had to take a year out from their trip to let her recover. Ray takes care of all the driving and instead drives around in a smart Ford Fusion rather than a big, bulky RV.

So far, they’ve finished their quest, having visited all 645 Cracker Barrels across the 44 US states that have one.

If you could only ever eat from one restaurant again, what would be your choice of food?

Disney Storylines that Should’ve Been Different

Peter Pan

We all love a classic like Peter Pan, but it wasn’t always suppose to be like we know it. At first, Disney animators wanted to make the whole story to go through Nana the dog’s eyes, plus to leave out John Darling completely. And that is not all; How do you feel about Peter Pan kidnapping Wendy so she could be a mother to Lost Boys? Yeap! This idea came up by Walt Disney himself. It is a children’s movie so this is some pretty dark stuff. In the end, Walt came to his sense and threw those ideas away, and made the classic we all know and love. He said:”We ought to get right into the story itself, where Peter Pan comes to the house to get his shadow. That is where the story picks up. How Peter came to be is really another story.”

The Lion King

King of the Beasts and King of the Kalahari were the first ideas for the name for this iconic movie back in the ’90s. The title was not the only thing that was different. Disney executive described the original script to be “more than a passing resemblance to an animated National Geographic special.” At first, Scar supposed to be a baboon and Rafiki a cheetah. The story, according to animators, was going to be about a war between baboons and lions. In the end, luckily, we were given a Hamlet of the desert.

Aladdin

Disney often has a weird habit of leaving out mothers from the story or in the “best” case, kill them off. In the first, original script, Aladdin had a mother character. But, that didn’t last long. Chairman at that moment was Jeffrey Katzenberg and he said:”Eighty-six the mother. The mom’s a zero.” Also, the fictional city of Agrabah wasn’t always the place where the story was set. It was supposed to be Baghdad until 1991 when the Gulf War started so Disney producers needed to change that.

Frozen

After almost 80 years of trying, Disney finally managed to make a movie out of Hans Christian Andersen’s story The Snow Queen. It wasn’t simple at all. Until 2008 the queen was using her powers to kill people, and the movie was pretty dark, especially for children. At first, Megan Mullally was supposed to be Elsa, but in the end, the physical inspiration was Bette Midler. The movie itself had nothing to do with sisters. The main story was about romance and it was showing Elsa as an unsympathetic villain. In 2012, director and screenwriter Jennifer Lee came up with the idea of how to revolutionize the story, so she made Anna and her relationship with her sister, Olaf as a fun sidekick and Hans as a villain.

Pocahontas

Flit and Meeko are Pocahontas’s sidekicks. They get along very well and are best friends. They were not alone in the original story because there was a third animal voiced by John Candy and it was a turkey, Redfeather. Flit and Meeko were left alone in 1994 when Candy died. Redfeather was left out and producers also muted Flit and Meeko who had voices at first.

What is Today’s Art and Can it be Defined?

Contemporary art is, we can say, art, that was created during our lives. Meaning that it evolves, based on how people blend with it, there are many types, styles, and forms of art today, but does all have a meaning?

“Modern” or “Contemporary” are only a synonyms for art. Sadly, in the world of art, these two forms describe two completely different moments of creations, and two separate concepts of art, bigger the difference, bigger the confusion. To fully understand the concept of Contemporary Art we should understand the difference of these two. The notion of Modern Art is usually related with arts emerged in between of 1860’s and 1970’s. During this period the art made successful experimentation and placed it past traditions aside. This new form of art and its freedom influenced by the inner views and expressions are making a great deal where the great changes and motives of Modern Art are questioned.

dreamstime_s_15816035

With all the diversity and its challenging nature, the art today includes various combinations of materials, styles, and meanings that are opposing the essence of simple definition. Artist today are constantly exploring ideas of new forms of art, aiming to understand the art of their time. With the lack of ideology or labels, as often seen, sometimes it’s “evolving” too fast for the audience, with them wondering if they skipped anything. The “missing content” is usually important, and its variations off different views that actually help in developing different styles. This deviation of the dominant, previous definition only improves the ideas of Modern Art.

dreamstime_s_9413092

Since it developed in the time of re-evaluations, experimentations, and with many questions, Contemporary Art sometimes misses the concept of shared idea, and the way of expressing. After this experiment, everything is so called art, according to all of this, followed by the upcoming trends, always questioning and expanding the idea of what else can be pronounced to art, to begin with. Contents of these works, are often not related to active social issues and are usually aiming to re-define the common values.

dreamstime_s_14024905

So, what now..? Obviously, there is a feel like something crucial and dominant that defines it is missing, and the approach that these vary valuables have towards art is never-ending, so how should we separate the concept of Contemporary art and Modern Art? Modern Art refers to the past, and with these references, it attempts to understand current time, present. Contemporary art, is also aiming for that, but the present is “shape-shifting” itself, and it is hard to know, so the question like “What is Art?” is often repeated, and it is no wonder.

Making art which is the opposite of what viewers expected, and its artistic nature is of modern concept actually. Artists from all categories and areas are producing something relative to their predecessor’s creations, and are influenced by their own relative culture and time period.

Contemporary art is, we can say, art, that was created during our lives. Meaning that it evolves, based on how people blend with it, there are many types, styles, and forms of art today, but does all have a meaning?

This Year’s Largest ‘Corso Zundert’ Flower Parade in Netherlands

Flower parades and festivals occur all over the world, but have you seen the ones held every year in Netherlands?

It’s called Corso Zundert by locals and ever since 1936, the colorful event is scheduled every year on the first Sunday of September. Teams complete with the best flower float of the year and the designs can reach several feet high and larger than typical trucks.

Mind you, this isn’t just any flower festival. Netherlands is known for its vast fields of flowers and their horticultural industry. Colorful tulip fields, daffodils, hyacinths, dahlias, you’ll never believe how colorful the world can be ‘til you see the whole country in full bloom season. Some say that the flower route in the Dutch country is a must in every traveler’s bucket list.

This year’s Corso Zunhert was held last September 4-5, 2016. Last year’s theme was inspired by Van Gogh in commemoration of his death anniversary. This year is even more dazzling and for all the 20 floats in the parade, millions of dahlias were used.

Colors range from orange, yellow, red, purple to other hues. The flower floats incorporate moving elements, effects, music, and some with marching bands. The teams surpassed expectations as designs ranged from mythical creatures, animals, abstract designs to human figures.

This one looks like a cathedral that morphed into a giant snail.

This year’s winner in Corso Zundert was the float depicting a huge captured dragon, designed by the team Tiggelaar. Everything in their float blended with the design, including the platform where the tied orange dragon sits. Even the team members or personnel around the float wore uniforms and hard hats as part of the whole exhibit. It looks like they capture the creature and they were transporting it to wherever the parade ends.

We’re asking same questions. Where did they get all those flowers? We’re there ever enough dahlias in the country for the whole event?

According to Corsozundert.nl, the building process of the floats begin months before the big parade. This is usually around May to June, and that’s usually the climax of the blooming season in spring. The flowers won’t last from those months to September, as they would wither in that long time. With that, the teams focus first on building the frame and other elements. The dahlias can only be placed on the floats a few days before the parade. Usually the busiest day is the Saturday before the parade as the team members complete the float for the big day.

The flower floats go around the street of Zundert village and there are judges during the parade. Afterwards, the winners are announced and prizes to the team who created the best float are awarded.

If you want to see more of the previous floats from last year’s Van Gogh theme, check out these photos.

If you want to see the parade next year, better schedule your trip to Netherlands in the first Sunday of September. For more info about the event, check their website here.

Jared Leto Will Star in Andy Warhol Biopic

It’s official – Jared Leto have signed up for a new biopic film about Andy Warhol.

We can’t deny that Jared Leto’s portrayal of The Joker is outstanding. He has the ability to transform even in the craziest roles we’ve ever seen. He hit the spotlight in his role in the TV series My So-Called Life in 1994, and from there he’s been in several box office hits like The Thin Red Line, Fight Club, and most recently as the DC supervillain “The Joker”.

The Suicide Squad actor will also co-produce the film and will be working with Terence Winter and Michael de Luca in this project to show the world more about the legendary pop artist.

Leto seems to be busy and booked these days with a lot of movie roles. He’s also working in a Blade Runner sequel with director Denis Villeneuve and actor Ryan Gosling.

This next biopic film will be based on the book Warhol: The Biography by author Victor Bokris. This was released two years after Warhol’s death in 1987. The part seems to perfect for Jared Leto, as he himself wanted to be an artist when he was young. He spoke about his love for art and has attended New York City’s School of Visual Arts. He was into painting and worked a lot in photography. Jared Leto also quoted Warhol once in an interview, saying ‘Labels are for cans, not people’.

His performance garnered a lot fans and as well from his role as Joker in Batman and Suicide Squad.

 “Warhol”

Andy Warhol was the most iconic figure in Pop Art of 20th Century. He took the world like a storm in the 1960s with his unique pop art. His influence extended not just in galleries and exhibitions but in consumer products as well. His works transformed product design into artistic creations. His pop art were seen in Cocacola bottles, appliances and other company ads.

Warhol also had a vivid world surrounded by Hollywood icons. He painted Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor. In 2008, one of his iconic portraits, ‘Eight Elvises’ was sold at $100 million.

He opened his own studio named as ‘The Factory’ where a lot of people of New York came that worked with art. It became a lavish cultural hotspots in the city and he became a celebrity on his own. He managed Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground and later became an icon in the famous Studio 54 nightclub in New York.

Beautiful and Breathtaking Street Lace Art by Artist NeSpoon

If you’re in Poland, particularly in Warsaw, Wroclaw or Pont-l’Abbé, you might want to be more aware of your surroundings. You might see beautiful lace patterns on or around the streets you walk on.

We’re not talking about lace and ribbons tied randomly somewhere or everywhere, but the street lace art created by NeSpoon.

NeSpoon is a Polish Artist who focuses on lace patterns painted on walls, streets, and other everyday objects. Take a look at the centerpiece below and you’ll see that she’s not your everyday graffiti artist.

While other artists have their own signature designs on street art, NeSpoon tapped into the intricate art of lace patterns. No, she’s not weaving lace on textile, rather, she lays her designs on urban surfaces. Her lace work is either made by white spraypaint or molded from clay and then blended into wood and other medium. Each lacework is designed and molded by her bare hands. It adds a sense of intricate beauty that blends well with nature.

When we talk about lace, it reminds us about table centerpieces, veils, and the dresses in the Colonial era. But for NeSpoon, it different. There’s more to painting lace patterns on the streets.  She said that every lace patter we find symmetry and harmony, “Isn’t that what we all seek for instinctively?”. In a way, she’s right. Looking at lace, the symmetry, and repeated patterns project order and harmony with each other.

We wouldn’t mind walking into pavements and alleys like this. It’s like walking on a carpeted alley.

Can you imagine what this wall looked like before the lace patterns painted over it? Most probably a boring wall, right? But now it looks like a huge artistic abstract structure that stands out against the backdrop.

 

If you’re in Poland, particularly in Warsaw, Wroclaw or Pont-l’Abbé, you might want to be more aware of your surroundings. You might see beautiful lace patterns on or around the streets you walk on.

David Bowie’s Art Collection in Manhattan Sotheby’s

Months after the iconic rock star’s death, David Bowie’s life is still continuously unfolding itself to the world. He pioneered his own kind of music marked with reinvention and innovative stagecraft. He was one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, and have amassed several platinum, gold and silver album certifications.

David Bowie died last January at the age of 69, and during his career, he was well known for his massive obsession with art. His collection will be on exhibit and auction at Sotheby’s Manhattan, and there will be over 350 items that’s up for sale. It includes his famous paintings, portraits and other modern, contemporary and post-modern Italian artworks. The auction will be held on November 10-11, 2016.

david-bowie-art

Sotheby’s previewed the famous rock star’s art collection last Monday in their gallery at New York, in preparation for the upcoming event. David Bowie’s collection extends to several artworks David Bomberg, Harold Gilman, Frank Auerbach, and Francis Picabia.

David Bowie’s Lifetime Love with Art and Everything Magnificent

In his lifetime, many have known him for his undying love with art. Even as a child, when he was in London, he studied art, design and music. The legendary musician once said that art was the seriously only thing that he wanted to own. To him, it can ‘change the way he feels in the morning’.

Apart from his music creations, he was also a painter and an art collector. The cover of his album Outside was painted by him. It was a self-portrait titled ‘The Dhead – Outside’ and was created as a signed lithograph.

Frank Auerbach’s “Head of Gerda Boehm” was said to have influenced Bowie in his work. The rock star had a profound connection to art and it seemed that art itself have connected to him deeply and in his creative process.

Among the most famous pieces he owned was Jean-Michel Basquiat’s “Air Power”. It is said to be the most expensive  item in his collection and is estimated to go over $3 million in the auction.

His love for art wasn’t limited to music and paintings, but also in film. Bowie also starred as Andy Warhol in biopic Jean-Michel Basquiat’s biopic film in 1996, which was directed by Julian Schnabel.

He was also in the movies Everybody Loves Sunshine in 1999, Zoolander in 2001, and also made a cameo in TV episode of The Hunger. He played various roles behind the camera, and at one point, he was the scientist Nikola Tesla in Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige.

There was never a boring show when Bowie was on stage. He was always innovative and glamorous, and perhaps the most iconic artwork that stood as his persona was his makeup in Ziggy Stardust. His shaved eyebrows made an iconic statement, apart from his announcement in front of his fans that it’s was ‘the last show that we’ll ever do’.
