When the Nokia Push project began back in September 2009, it helped re-imagine skating, kite aerial photography, city guides and more. But even they could not have imagined this.
In 2011, Nokia Push will be collaborating with the world’s biggest snowboarding company, Burton Snowboards, to create a new type of connected snowboarding. Work has already started between Nokia and Burton, and the collaboration will be run in the spirit of the Push project — transparently, and openly in beta. Throughout this time, regular videos will be published detailing the progress so far, and counting down to a beta launch at next year’s Burton Euro Open in January.
With wild skies above him and 1,500 feet of vertical drop below, Cameron Zink persevered over the obstacles to become the 2010 Red Bull Rampage champion. Twenty-one of mountain biking’s best riders threw down all they had while battling wild weather, but when the skies cleared it was Zink who took home the trifecta, the contest win, Utah Sports Commission Best Trick Award and the Freeride Mountain Bike (FMB) World Tour season overall title.
This video was taken following an initial attack on Ukrainian lion tamer Oleksie Pinko shows the trainer trying to keep the lion at bay with a steel rod.
The video then shows the lion roaring, lunging and striking, and another lion joins in, biting down on the trainer’s left arm. Circus workers quickly attempted to hose down the angry lions, separating them from their prey.
As you might have noticed we love lions here at Shock Mansion, hence our official logo. So watching this really pisses me off. Stop caging these poor animals and turning them into puppets for our entertainment. This is what lions do naturally, what did these idiots expect?
Word on the street is that new trailer below for the supernatural horror sequel Paranormal Activity 2 is so utterly terrifying that the World Health Organization (WHO) has ordered theaters carrying it to include a label warning of the potential poo your pants effects while viewing. Watch it below and don’t forget to clench your third eye. Nobody wants to clean that up.
When Shaun White was recently in Sydney launching his new range of Oakley Sunglasses, Knack was lucky enough to catch the super human himself tearing apart their local skatepark a stones through from their studio. Check out the video the guys put together below shot by Rob Norman and with Photography and an edit by Justin Barnwell.
A couple of crazy bastards decided it would be totally awesome if they abseiled down into an active volcano just a few hundred feet away from boiling lava. It turns out they were right, it was totally awesome!
I’ve got a lot of respect for people who risk their lives to give me a few minutes of entertainment. When I die, I want to come back as an eagle so I can fly over a volcano and take a dump right in its mouth. Boo Yah!
While many people seem to only speak in other accents when drunk, this dude reveals himself to be an inadvertent dialect savant in this remarkable video.
Within eight minutes, he masters two dozen accents used by English speakers. He says that the video is “mostly for his friends,” but it’s no surprise that such an impressive mimic has received so much attention on the internoodle.
I’m curious how he learned all these accents, which he effortlessly flows out in hilarious one sided phone conversations. He even gets the American accents mostly down pat which is rare for many trained professional actors!
Which one was your favorite?
