Design student Fabian Brunsing has devised a fiendish device that makes pay toilets seem tame: Dubbed “Pay & Sit: The Private Bench,” it consists of a bench covered with retractable metal spikes and a coin slot.
If you want to sit down on the bench without an array of spikes jamming you in the keister, you’ve got to feed it cold hard cash.
As seen below, this causes the spikes to retract so you can sit on the bench, and also activates a timer. Shortly before the timer expires, you’re warned by a buzzer to get up; then, the spikes shoot back up. Beware!

I’m no parachute expert, but this doesn’t look right. During a UK military parachuting exercise, this soldier got caught on something and dangled behind a plane going 150mph! The only this scarier then that would be falling from the sky without the parachute. It all works out hunky-dory and this guy lives to serve his country another day.
Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him.
But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage bank manager, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name….and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug…not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her.
The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.
A short while ago we posted a sketchy video of an F1 car being driven up and down a Dominican beach. Well that did not happen without a purpose. Here is the official Red Bull video of the F1 car ripping up the beach and skimming the edges of the water. Rad, now can I have a go?
Horiyoshi III is recognized as Japan’s undisputed tattoo master. Born Yoshihito Nakano in 1946, Horiyoshi III had his epiphany when confronted with a Yakuza (Japanese gangster) sporting a full body tattoo — or “suit”—at a public bathhouse as a young boy. Inspired, he visited the studio of Horiyoshi I for his own tattoo, and subsequently became his apprentice at the age of 25. Now days Horiyoshi’s technique uses an electric needle to freehand the outline of the tattoo straight into the skin, then he uses traditional bamboo tools for filling in color.
“Gnarcade,” from Knifeshow Inc, features Scott Stevens, Micah Hollinger, Chris Beresford, Tim Eddy, Ben Bogart, and Casey Wrightsman shredding away from a bevy of classic Nintendo villains, underscored by the band Ground Up.
Being a computer game junkie myself this is the sickest thing I’ve seen in a while.
Check out the rad little Q&A with Joe G (the mastermind behind “0000”) below.
Question: So what’s the meaning of all this? What are we watching?
Joe G: We’ve just started filming for the new Globe Surf Film and we’ll be releasing these little video tests every few months as we make the film.
So first and foremost this is just a little test video. It’s not a trailer or anything like that. It’s just a test. That said, we definitely want it to be cool to look at. You can watch “a rad surf part” everywhere these days and to me a lot of it looks the same.
We want these video tests to be a series of audiovisual experiments…something a bit different. Maybe an alternate music video for the song? Maybe something trippy that just so happens to have a few surf clips in it? We’re basically kind of bored with a lot of the things we usually see in surf and like to try different stuff.
Question: What did you shoot it on?
Joe G: Mostly the Photosonics Actionmaster 500 and an ARRI SR3 HI SPEED. Old film cameras that look all gritty and weird and fun.
Question: Who’s the focus of the first test?
Joe G: Video Test One is just Dion punting a few little airs shot in super slow mo. We did it over a few days in Ventura, CA basically just screwing around with an old Hi Speed film camera i wanted to try.There are a few ladies making a cameo in the piece, but no other surfers.
Question: Globe always seems to push it creatively with their film projects. Why?
Joe G: I guess we think it’s not enough to “just shoot great surfing” anymore. For me to get excited about any film, it has to feel like a psychedelic experience. Not psychedelic as in you feel like you’re on drugs, psychedelic like it takes you out of your present state of mind and transports you to another. Ya know? Surfing to me is psychedelic and good clips should be treated with care. Music, editing, shots, aesthetics…everything needs to be carefully considered to create an experience for the viewer.
I guess to put it simply, we just like to create things that allow the viewer to experience surfing in a new way.
Question: So when do we get to see the new Globe Surf Film?
Joe G: Well we just started filming so it’ll be a little while. Our plan is to keep coming out with these little tests though to keep it interesting along the way. You can follow the progress of the film here: www.globe.tv/0000/
