Mission Impossible.

Courtesy of Shaw Speed and Custom

Motorbikes, I've seen quite alot of motorbikes in my time, but I must admit I've never really seen something quite like this. A custom built softail bike for a private client of Shaw Speed and Customs named Mission Impossible. It's F*cking sexy! The brief? it needed to look "Badass", a request stated by their client.

“It's F*cking sexy!”

This is Range Rover meets Harley-Davidson. The bike was built in 8 weeks, which was an extremely tough challenge that the team at Shaw Speed and Custom beat.

Mission Impossible gained its name on the back of the short build time, 8 weeks, one of the shortest lead time the Team had ever taken on.

Donor bike: Harley-Davidson Rocker C

The donor bike chosen for this build was a Rocker C. the main reasons for this was because the standard frame has the space to accommodate a 300mm rear wheel to be fitted and suited the big back end look.

We think it looks real F*cking Badass and thats why we've chosen to share it with you. Enjoy Guys.

187 ideas for your paid holiday

“I’m bored”. Probably the two most commonly combined words in the English dictionary that form a legitimate sentence.

“March down to the HR department”

I often hear a plethora of people exclaim this all the time and it often makes me think. Why are a large sample of the population out there so easily bored? Is it because we have evolved into the next generation of human beings that just seem to lack attention span?

But then again, isn’t it only boring people that get bored? I certainly agree, in my opinion, that this is the case and if this is the case, well then people need to just stop being boring and start living.

Here’s a video with 187 people who aren’t bored or boring and also 187 reasons why you need to march down to your HR department right now and rightfully claim your paid holiday to go break a bone or two.

The cat's out the bag

The devil is in the detail, a phrase that has never been more accurate, unless that is, if you are applying it to the brand new Jaguar F-Type. F for Fast and F for F**k you.

"The devil is in the detail"

If you’re looking for something that would wipe that smug smile off the face of a Porche Boxter driver then this is not the car for you.

This is a car that will absolutely decimate the ability to feel any emotional feeling in a Porche Boxter driver. You would simply make them wish they were deaf, as the sound of the growl is so alluring it’d make them want to park their car up on the hard shoulder and hitch a ride in yours.

If you don’t believe me, well I have a video to prove it.

Nokia Lumia 925's Low Light Photography Debut

3210, 3310, 8500, What were the correlation between those numbers? Searching my mind, those numbers ring a bell, an all too familiar bell by the name of 'Nokia'. A once dominating force in the world of mobile phones. It was solid form factor that was the correlation between these three numbers and it went something like this. The higher the number, the smaller the phone.

"Tank like resistance"

I remember when I was young my best friend had had a 3210 and we was somewhat amazed at the tank like resistance his phone had. We'd actively spend all afternoon trying to pierce its armor like shell. I guess thats what kids do in general, try to deconstruct things, or maybe it was just us, we were kinda crazy kids.

We had this one exercise that we liked to call "The Rocket ship" which involved launching the phone as high as possible in his front yard and watching it fall lifelessly to the ground again. Then afterwards we would play autopsy and assess the damage in our post-mortem report, only to watch the phone revive itself in a slow flickering motion, it was slightly dissapointing and very impressive that it didn't die but survived our torture.
In a way, I guess you could say the phone was immortal. I mean if it doesn't break at the mercy of a couple of deviously determined kids then it is in that sense somewhat immortal and I am sure a lot of you would agree with me.

But what isn't immortal or everlasting is Nokia's once monopolistic share of the market. With an ever "growing in demand" audience, in the last couple of years Nokia has slowly slipped from pole position to second place after being over taken by Samsung earlier this year. But if all goes to plan, Nokia's new flagship model the Lumia 925 is going to change all that and propel Nokia back into first place.

"Play autopy and assess the damage"

Focusing on a niche offering that so far all the other competitors quite simply s*ck at. Low light photography. Nokia has managed to make quite an interesting proposition to the next wave of consumers reaching the end of their contracts and looking for an upgrade.

NSFW: Shia LaBeouf & Stacey Martin engaged in steamy sex act in newmovie 'Nymphomaniac'

Courtesy of Vulture
So we've been eagerly awaiting and following the news on Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac' ever since we heard that it had gone into production and every piece on news that emerges seems a little more salacious than the last.

This latest photo featuring Shia LaBeouf and Stacy Martin engaged in a steamy sex scene marks the most graphic image that we've seen from the movie so far.

According to Von Trier this scene comes from the second of nine chapters in the film, entitled 'Jerôme'. The chapter boasts the description "Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences."
The exact release date is not yet known, but is rumoured to be scheduled somewhere between December 2013 and January 2014.

"Though love is a shallow feeling in the eyes of the cynical nymphomaniac, young Joe is met by forces penetrating her armoured defences."

All I can say is that we're eagerly awaiting the release of the film in the cinema here at Dogstone. For more on Nymphomaniac head over to the film's official site
