Amazingly, Austrian super biker Markus "Hercules" Stöckl has managed to break the world's bicycle speed record (actually, his own) on a basic mountain bike on a 45 degree slope in the alps of La Parva, Chile by reaching 130 MPH (210.4 KM/H) in a mere 40 second run. Unreal. Check the video:

At least when A-list arthouse directors like MICHEL GONDRY go commercial, they put the money to good use. Case in point: the mad genius' new Motorola RAZR2 commercial debuting this week, and no, we didn't get paid to say this (but we wish we did):

THE CITY'S TOP INKERS: SCOTT CAMPBELL
By Jenny Eliscu

He’s so busy with commercial ventures (like designing ads for Camel cigarettes, for example) that he only lays ink on the weekends, but it’s still worth the three-month wait for Scott Campbell. His knowledge of what he calls “antique ornamentation and specialized typography”—as well as old-school classics like swallows, anchors, sailing ships—is exhaustive, which is why his Williamsburg studio, Saved Tattoo, pulls in clients like Marc Jacobs, Josh Hartnett, Heath Ledger, and Helena Christensen. The price is steep ($1,000 for the first hour, $200 each hour thereafter), but it’s worth the investment to brandish one of Campbell’s works on your skin forever (3 Hope St., nr. Roebling St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-486-0850).

Heads keep buggin like this new KAWS collab is out of left field, but we saw it comin miles (light years) away. The last three movies may have killed the STAR WARS franchise dead forever, but this toy singlehandedly redeems the whole mess. Unfortunately, the final word is that NONE of these roughly 400% Be@rbrick-sized bad boys will be available from Read More
