Anne Hathaway Is Catwoman!

Oh I like this! Christopher Nolan who is set to direct the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, announced today that he has cast Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in the film! “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story.” Anne’s star certainly seems to be on the rise! I think she’ll be incredible as Catwoman! Nolan also revealed that Tom Hardy has been cast to play villain Bane; “I am delighted to be working with Tom again and excited to watch him bring to life our new interpretation of one of Batman’s most formidable enemies.” Christian Bale of course will play the title role in the movie. So what do you think about Anne Hathaway donning the famous Catwoman catsuit?!

Sophie Reade Bikini Car Wash Photos!

What’s better on a lazy Sunday afternoon than pictures of a sexy reality show star washing a car in a bikini top and teeny tiny short-shorts? Not much! Here’s 2009 Big Brother UK winner Sophie Reade erotically sponging a Fiat in knee-high pink and white-striped socks, a pair of purple plaid nightie shorts and a pink plaid bikini top. Are those silver high-heeled Chuck Taylors?!?

Kelly Brook Rings in New Years With Some Bikini Love!

These were snapped over the weekend in St. Barts as Kelly Brook is busy enjoying the high life while she treats everybody to her bikini bod! This latest mini-vacation comes after a brief stint w/ her ex-boyfriend in the Maldives. Re-reading what I just wrote makes me realize how much my life sucks ass.

Lacey Schwimmer is Cunning

Despite the fact that she’s been on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ for 5 seasons, Lacey Schwimmer still isn’t very famous, and I rarely remember who she is when I see her, so it was very crafty of her to go to the pool at Hard Rock this weekend, take off most of her clothes and then let someone take pictures of it. Very crafty indeed. If she plays her cards right, I might even stare at her tits next time. She’s really turned our relationship upside down!

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Scenes From the Duct Tape Festival

According to its website, the Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival “celebrates duct tape, its enthusiasts and its wacky and fun uses.” The festival takes place in the Duct Tape Capital of the World, Avon, Ohio—the home of Duck brand duct tape. I attended last month with my daughters (7-year-old triplets), who enjoyed riding the rides, playing carnival games, and decorating jewelry boxes with duct tape. We also made sure to stop by all the duct tape sculptures scattered throughout the festival. Here’s what we saw.

Postcards from a Violent City

El Paso and Juárez used to operate as one community. But Juárez’s violence is causing anguish among El Paso residents. The car where four teenagers were shot in Juárez last December, above, had at least 39 bullet marks.

Historic Defense Tower Transformed Into Modern Home

This ancient defense tower in Suffolk, England has been transformed from a historic marker of a war-faring age into a remarkable one-of-a-kind home. The home’s designer and owner Duncan Jackson worked closely with Piercy Conner Architects to create a comfortable, contemporary living space that maintains the aesthetic integrity of the historically-registered defense tower. The project solved a set of thorny issues (a round building with few windows and 12 foot-thick walls) while creating a truly gracious home in the wetlands that preserves a unique piece of history. The resulting residence looks like it would be right at home on the Star Wars planet Tatooine.

Designers Spin Spidey-Worthy Webs From Packing Tape

Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore. Installed three times in the past year, the next deployment will be next week from June 9–13 at DMY Berlin's International Design Fair, which is now in its 8th year. The installations, which look like the work of horrifyingly large arachnids, grew in scale and scope as the year progressed, first deployed inside a small Croatian gallery, then an abandoned attic during October’s Vienna Design Week.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

VIN 001 Falcon F7 Shows Up on eBay

That was fast! It was just at the Detroit Auto Show that Falcon Motor Sports was announcing final production details on the new F7, and now they're selling the first one produced on eBay for close to 1M bucks. Yeow! Fortunately, cars 2 through 10 (that's all they'll make for 2012) will be "starting at" only $225,000. Whew, that's reassuring: for a second there I was thinking I wouldn't be able to afford one.

Lingenfelter 2010 Camaro Ta Concept Car Sema 2009

The Lingenfelter TA concept car was built from a 2010 Camaro SS and is powered by a LS based 455 CID engine that produces 655 horsepower & 610 lbs ft of torque. Lingenfelter's custom TA was built around the classic 71 Trans Am interior & exterior theme. The TA features a classic shaker hood, new front fascia, revised front and rear quarter panels, functional front fender vents and rear spoiler. To finish off the exterior the LTA has new lighting front and rear, blue stripping, badging, custom honeycomb 20" wheels, Nitto tires & Corsa exhaust. The interior enhancements include custom seats, console, door panels, carpets and a 70's style metal-turned instrument panel.

Citroen’s Ten Best Big-Air at WRC

To build hype for the upcoming Rally Finland, reigning WRC Champions Citroen have released ten of their best “big-air” photos from this year’s rallies in Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, and Sweden. Having attended a few rallies ourselves, we know a thing or two about getting big air in a car, and we like it. The photos show Citroen’s star driver, Sebastian Loeb, and others catching big air as they push their C4 Rally cars to the absolute limit. Loeb said, of his massive, 85-meter jump in Turkey, “It was an incredible sensation as we were up in the air for several seconds. Not for a moment did we imagine that we would jump so far.” Hit the jump (no pun intended) for all ten big-air shots.

Hidden Tech That Makes Modern Driving Better

Read sales brochures for new cars and you'll quickly reach tech overload. The level of gadgetry packed into vehicles these days is stunning, if not overwhelming. From lithium-ion batteries to voice-activated navigation to HDMI video inputs, the specs on many modern automobiles can read more like high-end electronics than anything you might commute in. Some of the stuff is really cool and gets a lot of attention, like gee-whiz infotainment systems and the nannies that keep you from wandering into another lane or running down some hapless pedestrian. But cars are loaded with subtler technologies that quietly go about their jobs without drawing attention. In fact, there's a good chance that you don't even know your car's got some of this hidden tech giving you more power, better fuel economy or a more comfortable slog through your commute.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Crash-Test Dummies Go To The Smithsonian

The crash-test dummies have taken up residence at the Smithsonian. No, not those Crash Test Dummies. You know—Vince and Larry, the guys who have been features in public service announcements going back to 1985. It's become one of the most successful safety campaigns in U.S. history, so they rightly deserve a spot at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, in Washington, D.C. From the mid-1980s through 1998, TV and radio spots as well as magazine ads featured a more slaptick approach, as well as a little comedy—with lines like “it's a great job...they may have to pry me away from it”--to help us understand the importance of buckling up and saving lives.

How New York's Subways Are Made

This tunnel-boring machine has been boring subway holes in the tough New York dirt for 30 years now, and has been brought into action again on Second Ave. Isn't it a beauty? The TBM was built in the 1970s in New Jersey, and has been reconditioned "like new" and reassembled in New York for this month's subway-digging work.

The Worst Part of Going to Space? Your Fingernails Come Off

Did you think drinking your own urine was bad? To truly test whether you have the right stuff, imagine ripping out your own fingernails, on purpose. A couple of astronauts have done this before going into orbit, because they figure it’s better than losing them inside chafing, unwieldy spacesuit gloves, according to Dava Newman, director of MIT’s technology and policy program and director of the university’s Man Vehicle Lab. Newman, who has studied space-related injuries, told a group of journalists at MIT that some astronauts have reported losing their fingernails during spacewalks. Fingernail trauma and other hand injuries are spacewalkers’ biggest complaint, she said. In a forthcoming study, Newman says astronauts with big hands suffer the worst. National Geographic News explains that improved, custom-fitted gloves might be the solution. In a recent study of astronaut injuries, at least 22 reported lost fingernails, a phenomenon called fingernail delamination. It happens because of pressure on the fingertips, but researchers also think circulation cutoff could be to blame, NGN explains.

Donated Fur Coats, Hats And Trim Make Cozy Nests For Rescued Wildlife

Got a fur coat gathering dust? The Humane Society suggests the ultimate recycling -- putting it on the backs of other animals. The Coats for Cubs program by the Humane Society of the United States helps orphaned, injured or sick wildlife by gathering fur coats and using them for nests, bedding or cuddly replacements for mom and dad. In 2009, 2,687 fur items were donated. "We use the discarded furs as bedding to give the animals comfort and reduce stress," said Michael Markarian, the agency's chief operating officer in Washington, D.C. "The fur garments act as a surrogate mother. It is a warm and furry substitute." The coats go to wildlife rehabilitation centers that take in baby raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels, coyotes, skunks and other animals. The program has helped thousands of animals since it began in 2005 with the Fund for Animals.
