Rihanna Wears Half an Outfit at Pepsi Fan Jam

From these photos of Rihanna performing live at the Pepsi Fan Jam on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, yesterday, I gather the no pants trend is nearly over. Nearly over, as in she’s wearing one of her two pant legs. That’s the most pant legs I’ve seen her wear in some time. She also appears to be covering one of her boobs, which is the most coverage I’ve seen those things get in some time. The singer is wearing a cut-out catsuit that makes me think of the black half-catsuit worn by Shakira in the She Wolf music video. One arm, one sleeve, one boob, one ass cheek, and most of their crotch hanging out. At least Rihanna has the good manners to cover her remaining boob with a strapless bra. And cover her bare leg with fishnet stockings. Her booty’s still kinda hanging out, but bish works out. I’m not even mad at her.

Erin Heatherton Contorts Pencil-thin Body Into Various Shapes As She Stretches During Yoga

Pouting away down the runway or from the pages in a glossy magazine, Erin Heatherton usually looks effortless and other-worldly. But today she appeared very real as she showed the strain of keeping her body trim with a sweaty private yoga session. The pretty blonde was seen contorting into various shapes as she sweltered under the Miami sun, spending most of the time on her knees before standing on her head with the help of an instructor.

Selena Gomez in a Bikini

I’m assuming God wants to test just how depraved society has become* because here’s yet another almost-18 starlet in revealing attire. This time around it’s Selena Gomez on the set of Monte Carlo today and had I known this was going to turn into Underage Summer, I would’ve made sure all my forged passports are up to date. So thanks for not sending me the memo, Disney. It’s always been a dream of mine to Polanski it up one day. *puts on fake mustache* This is not the blogger you’re looking for.

Dita Von Teese Drops Some Red Hot Cleavage

Here’s Dita Von Teese dropping some pretty damn sexy cleavage at the Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection 2011 shindig. Ok, so I really don’t dig this girl, never have, but I really dig cleavage (all kinds of it actually), and I have to admit that Dita Von Teese has stupendous cleavage. Not to mention some groovy curves, and the enthusiasm to show off said stupendous cleavage and groovy curves. Dang, I think I may have been wrong about this babe. Oh well, better late than never.

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Scenes from Kenya

Kenya remains one of Africa's most developed countries, but has been dealt several setbacks in the past few years. Political and tribal conflicts, unstable neighbors (Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia), and a crushing drought last year have left much of Kenya on hold, trying to regain recent momentum. The tourist trade has begun to pick up, nearly returning to the record levels - $810 million dollars earned in 2009. Several government plans are in motion to retain and rebuild the economy, including a massive translocation project to move zebras and wildebeest into lion territory - hopefully alleviating lion attacks on livestock in the drought-affected area. Collected here are a handful of recent photographs from Kenya.

Fantastic Photos Taken With a Fisheye Lens

Today we’re going to focus on a wonderfully distorted area of photography: fisheye shots. Fisheye lenses are essentially extreme wide angle lenses that were originally developed for meteorological purposes but are now used by all sorts of photographers. As you can see in the images below, the applications are endless and are seldom boring! Hopefully you’ll leave feeling inspired to pick up your own fisheye lens or a (considerably cheaper) fisheye converter.

The Truly Impressive Array of Colors Found In Underwater Coral

One of the most beautiful features of underwater coral lies in their impressive array of colors. Both the soft coral, that are akin to the trees and plants of the underwater world and the hard coral, that are part and parcel to the coral reefs are filled with life and bursting with color. It is their beauty which continues to attract and interest people around the world. Many people may not realize that coral are animals that have been around for more than 25 million years. They are an essential part of one of the more productive ecosystems on Earth and are known for their importance in fishery, medicines and coastal protection, as well as their draw for tourism.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

Rolls-Royce Once Again Proves Its Bespoke Department Knows No Bounds

Since its inception, Rolls-Royce has made a living making its customers feel very, very special. Given the average net worth of its buyers and the custom-tailored nature of their vehicles, this sort of approach makes good business sense. That said, some customers are clearly more special than others. Michael Fux, a businessman and philanthropist who commissioned the unusual purple Phantom Drophead Coupe seen here, is clearly one of the latter. Fux is one of Rolls' very best customers, and he's also known for being one of its most outlandish, perpetually giving Goodwood's Bespoke department specialists a workout. Rolls has debuted one-off Fux cars during past Monterey weeks, and this year, they've teamed up again to reveal this striking purple and white Phantom.

Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera

Even more dynamic, lighter, more powerful and stunning - the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera is the new top model in the Gallardo line-up. Its evocative "superlight" badge refers to a driving machine of true sporting character and describes a high-performance and lean automotive athlete. The Superleggera makes its entrance to continue the success of its predecessor, launched in 2007, of which Lamborghini produced and sold no less than 618 in just one year. Compared with the already lean Gallardo LP560-4, the weight of the Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera has been trimmed by 70 kilograms (154 lb). The super sportscar from Sant'Agata Bolognese boasts a dry weight of no more than 1340 kilograms (2954 lb) - the lightest road-going model in Lamborghini's range, and a new arrival in one of the most exclusive market niche segments.

Spied! 2011 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost V-6

Ford is about half a year away from starting production of the first six-cylinder EcoBoost-equipped 2011 F-150 half-ton pickup, but our spies have caught a tester SuperCab FX4 model racking up the miles. In the picture, you can see a turbo intercooler framed in the middle of the lower bumper. The EcoBoost twin-turbo system runs at up to 1,740 degrees, according to Ford. An air-to-air intercooler is used to cool the compressed intake air before it enters the engine's combustion chamber, and water cooling protects the internal turbo bearings in the high-temperature operating environment. Using two turbochargers, rather than one larger one, helps fight turbo lag.

1955 Ford Beatnik Bubbletop Custom Goes On The Block

Bubbletops are unquestionably an enthralling part of the custom car world, and the one we are talking about here is one good, gorgeous baby to look at. Built by Gary “Chopit” Fioto, the 1955 Ford “Beatnik” Bubbletop Custom is expected to fetch between $200,000 and $300,000 at RM Auction’s Amelia Island event on March 12, 2011. Inspired by futuristic design studies from the ‘50s, the Beatnik is a lavender 1955 Ford-based custom, rides on a modified ‘88 Lincoln Town Car chassis and gets its power from a Chevrolet 350-cubic inch small-block V8 engine. For the Beatnik, Fioto used a mix of Cadillac, Chrysler and Lincoln components, including the canted quad headlights. The front and rear fenders, the door skins and the rear section of the car are hand-formed. In 2006, the custom Bubbletop won the coveted $20,000 Grand Prize at Darryl Starbird’s National Rod and Custom Car Show. The Beatnik has received a number of awards, including the “Blackie” Gejeian’s 2005 Fresno Autorama Sweepstakes Award, “Outstanding Custom” at the 2006 Grand National Roadster Show and the George Barris Kustom d’Elegance Award.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Use Googles Open Spot Android App To Find Parking Spots

Google's new Open Spot Android app turns finding open parking spots into a social game. You earn "karma points" for marking down available parking spots while others earn open parking spots by tracking down those marked spots. Each time you mark down an available parking spot in Open Spot, you gain a karma point. The more karma points you get, the better you feel about yourself, or something like that. The marked spot shows up in the Open Spot app for 20 minutes and is shown in a time-sensitive color: red for freshly marked, orange for spots marked 5 minutes ago and yellow for spots marked 10 minutes ago. Parking spot applications have been done before, but not with the big G attached. But even with Google, Open Space's success hinges on getting enough users in the game.

Looking Back at the Space Station From Earth

The newly installed cupola on the International Space Station provides the astronauts with a window onto the Earth below them. Now, Ralf Vandebergh has captured an image of that space station component from his backyard telescope. The new viewing station was launched in February on space shuttle mission STS-130 and attached to the Tranquility module. Vandebergh manually tracks the ISS with his telescope and camera setup, and it takes a fortuitous set of circumstances to capture a great image. “The best results occur mostly as a surprise when lighting angle, viewing angle, seeing, distance and other factors of the objects are favorable,” Vandebergh explains on his website.

Before-and-After Pictures: Underwater Church Reappears

You might call it an act of God. A severe drought in Venezuela has exposed a church—pictured in 2008 (left) and on February 21, 2010—that had been inundated when a hydroelectric dam was built in 1985. The 82-foot-tall (25-meter-tall) church and the Andean town of Potosi (see map) were flooded to establish the Uribante-Caparo water reservoir to power the plant, which is currently operating at just 7 percent of its capacity, according to the Reuters service. The church is now an ominous symbol of energy shortages in the country, which gets around 68 percent of its power from hydroelectricity, Reuters reported. The droughts spurred Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to declare an energy emergency in February.

How Your Favorite Internet Companies Make Money

After setting up free networking profiles on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, an Internet user can instantly access the largest repository of information mankind has ever compiled at no cost — through Google. That person can stream music for free on Spotify, watch videos for free on YouTube, download free mobile phone apps on iTunes, set up a website for free on WordPress and post free classified ads on Craigslist. Indeed, the Internet is a bargain hunter’s dream. The paradox is that, while a great number of Internet services come gratis, the companies that provide these services are turning huge profits.
