Well, it’s Monday…the Winter Olympics are on, football season is over, “The LEGO Movie” is number one at the box office. Nothing out of the ordinary…unless you scan the web! Holy shit….what the hell is Bruce Jenner doing to himself?! Shia LaBeouf cruisin’ Berlin wearing a paper bag. Bode Miller whining about mother nature at Sochi (what’s the matter Bode? Someone have a case of the “Mondays”?) Listen, I can’t do what he does but it seems when the expectations are high..well….let Bode explain: “I think I skied well enough to win, but it just doesn’t happen sometimes.” It just doesn’t happen sometimes? No kidding. At least he doesn’t look like Bruce Jenner, who should borrow Shia LaBeouf’s paper bag. All teasing aside, I wish I was famous! – THE 4519
This is from an article in the Associated Press about Hunter S. Thompson. According to author E Jean Carrol’s biography, “Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson”, this would have been his typical daily routine. Who cares if this itinerary of his typical day is unlikely – if it were real and he did consume all the drugs and booze listed it only adds to the legend!!! As Dr Gonzo always said, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
Super Bowl XLVIII
Denver Broncos (Colorado) vs Seattle Seahawks (Washington)
The only two states in America (and 2 of only 3 places on earth) where cannabis is not only legal but have a “budding” legal system for growing and selling weed will face each other in the Super Bowl.
Go Broncos!….wait…Go Seahawks!…Wait, who is playing again??? Time to smoke a “bowl”. May your pipe always be full – the4519
Graphic designer John LaRue has created an infographic that shows the colours worn by all the major characters over the first five seasons of cult AMC show “Breaking Bad”.
Colorizing Walter White’s Decay gives away a lot more about the characters’ moods than you might expect. Walt, for example, wears increasingly darker colours over the first two seasons, before moving on to more bold (or dare we say, confident?) colours.
While Skylar’s descent into her husband’s world is more than evident when you look at how her colours have evolved over time.
This group of kayakers got the treat of their lives when they were joined in the sea by a massive basking shark. The group were out for an evening paddle around the coastal town of Peel on the Isle of Man just off the west coast of the Island. The incredible images were taken by Keirron Tastagh, founder of Adventurous Experiences, who was leading the kayak trip. Tastagh commented: “The Isle of Man is a known hotspot for Basking Sharks, but it’s rare to have everyone in the group experience such a close encounter.
