Win T-Shirts from Mingo Lamberti!

Note: This competition has ended.

It’s been a week since our last giveaway and I’ve already got the DTs. Lucky for me and you, Mingo Lamberti has offered some of their super-cool merch for us to give away.

Named after his grandfather, a good man who believed in doing a good job at whatever he did, Brad Hodgskiss created t-shirt collective Mingo Lamberti to bring those same principles into the t-shirts and their designs. There have been six ranges thus far – each design gets printed 200 times and made available at independent clothing stores around Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban.

We’ve got not one, not two, but THREE Mingo Lamberti tees to give away this week, and if you’re picked as a winner you’ll be able to choose your tee from two specific ranges.

The gentleman can select any design from the Electric range.

And the ladies can take a pick from these three designs in the Nature range.

Full competition details are after the jump. Go to it!

How Much is a Petabyte?

The other day I was sitting on the toilet and as one does, I asked myself “Dude, like how much is a Petabyte?” Unsurprisingly I hadn’t the remotest clue what the answer was so I quickly changed the conversation to big hairy balls. This is my modus operandi when cornered by difficult questions or people.

It wasn’t until today that I remembered the toilet question and a convenient tweet from shawnroos revealed the answer:

There you have it. Now both you and I can impress the laydeez with our knowledge of frankly useless facts.  :yes:

The A-Team on the Big Screen!

As a kid I loved watching the A-Team. I sang along to the theme tune and totally empathized with the crack commando unit – I too kept getting blamed for everything that went wrong (thanks mom!) and desperately wanted to escape the “stockade” and survive in the world as a soldier of fortune. I must have spent years saying “Quit your jibba jabba fool!” whenever my older brother tried to speak to me. Good times.

I still catch the show on the Series channel, but I can’t regain that exhilarating feeling I had watching it back in the day. Needless to say, there is a plan to bring the A-Team to the big screen and I’d love for that plan to come together.

Variety reveals that the movie is to be directed by Joe Carnahan (Smoking Aces, Narc) and set for release in mid 2010. Two members of the awesome foursome have been set – Liam Neeson will play the A-Team’s leader Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Yes Man) will take the role of ladies man, Lt. Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck. No word yet on who’ll play the batshit insane Capt. Murdock and the team’s badass strongman Sgt. B.A. Baracus. Production set to start in August so I’d imagine the news will surface sooner or later.

What do you think of the cast so far? And which actors do you think should play the two remaining roles? Drop us a comment and let us know.

World Record Alert: Woman Lifts 14 Kg Ball With her Vagina!

In our earlier Link Loving post today, I posted a link to 1970s children’s book that showed how a baby was made. Onelargeprawn reader Macross and I got chatting how it messed up our childhood, from thinking vaginas were completely circular (that was me) to how words like ovaries, fallopian tube, and uterus destroyed the dream that babes were.

Of course there is no denying that the power of the punani. The sight of it alone can terrorize preschoolers and grown men weak at the knees.

A Russian woman who knows all about the pulling power of the female organ has set a new world record. 42-year old Tatiata Kozhevnikova of Novosibirsk, user her Hulk-like Vagina muscles to lift a 14 Kg glass ball! Guinness Book of Records were in attendance and officially crowned her the possessor of the world’s strongest vagina.

Kozhevnikova has been exercising her intimate muscles for over 15 years.

If you’re scratching your head wondering how it’s done, MosNews.com asked Kozhevnikova and this is the answer:

You insert one of the balls in your vagina, and it has a string attached to it with a little hook at the very end. You fix a second ball onto this hook.

There you have it. And here’s a video of Kozhevnikova doing her thing.

Your thoughts gentlemen and ladies?

Link Loving – July 9, 2009

I know times are tough at work when I can only manage to do one post a day, and I think today is going to be one of those days. Pity me, but whilst I try to un-break the things I mashed up yesterday here are some cool links for you to look at.

Tony Melendez: The No-Armed Guitarist

I totally need some inspiration to get this day going, and PS3ZA member Reiger kindly obliged with this amazing video. Tony Melendez was born in Nicaragua without any arms, a consequence of the thalidomide his mother was prescribed during her pregnancy. He was fitted with artificial arms and wore them til he was 10 years old, after which he disposed of them, saying that he could use his feet so much more.

At the age of 16, Tony started to learn the guitar, a task some people thought couldn’t be done because of this disabilities. Not only did learn to strum the guitar and play chords with his toes, Tony even learnt to sing. Watch as he performs “Let It Be” while on vacation in 2007.

Pew Pew! Johnny Depp Shoots up the Place in “Public Enemies”

Everything Johnny Depp touches seems to turn cult. Heck, I’d even let him touch me inappropriately…if the price is right :inlove:

From some memorable performances in Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Dead Man, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the incomparable Mr Depp now plays the role of notorious 1930s bank robber John Dillinger in the movie Public Enemies. Nicknamed “the jackrabbit” for his graceful movements, Dillinger murdered loads of police officers, robbed over 12 banks (and four police stations!), and escaped jail on two occasions. He operated in the so-called “public enemy” era, a period that led to the birth of the FBI.

Directed by Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral, Miami Vice), Public Enemies recounts the last year of John Dillinger’s life during the Great Depression. See the trailer below.

It looks like a solid crime caper. It’s already out in the U.S., but I couldn’t find anything concrete on its release date in South Africa. I’m guessing September 4th.

Play This: Fragger

In a bid to get away from the boring outdoor sports like football and rugby, Fragger tasks you with terminating your enemies with extreme prejudice. There is no story to the game, so your enemies could be anyone you see fit – bullies from your childhood, ex-partners, or even members of a certain political party’s youth league ;-)

In each level you have a set amount of grenades to play with and as the levels progress, certain puzzle elements are added to the mix.

It’s a great day to blow people up. Play Fragger at Kongregate.

Buzz Aldrin Lays Down the Rhymes in “Rocket Experience”

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his moon walk in 1969, Buzz Aldrin decided to do something a white man of his age hasn’t done before – rap. Teaming up with Snoop Dogg, Talib Kweli, and a series of back-up singers, the 79 year old astronaut laid down the rhymes for the track Rocket Experience. Check it out below.

A portion of the proceeds from song sales will go to the charities that Aldrin supports – the National Space Society, the Planetary Society, and the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.

See the making of video and a chat between Aldrin and Ali G after the jump.

Exploit Yourself

We’re not talking about selling your jiggly bits on Sea Point main road, but testing your own limits when it comes to sports, and by sports we don’t mean prostitution. Unless prostitution is a legalized sport, which it isn’t, or won’t be until the Soccer World Cup in 2010 ;-)

Anyways, swiftly moving on, “Exploit Yourself” is a fictitious Nike commercial created by Big Lazy Robot featuring a hoodie-wearing robot running and jumping about in his Nikes.

Check it out below or watch it in HD at Vimeo.

Earlier we had robots that consumed flesh to sustain themselves, then it was the death-dealing RoboGeishas, and now robots doing extreme running in our favourite sport shoes. I think the writing is firmly on the wall…
