Merc Madness

Growing up, I had a handful of Mercedes Benz Hot Wheels cars—and I always used them as the bad guys. They were either the bank robbers' getaway cars or an evil spy networks' chase cars. However I imagined them they weren't the good guys and I've honestly never been into Mercs—until now. There are currently three beyond bada$$ Benz's right now that I'd be stoked to drive. 

Mercedes-AMG GT S

This maybe the obvious choice for most, but if you know me, it's actually the least obvious choice. I'm usually not big into supercars, but when I saw Randy Probst and the Motor Trend team put this one through the paces, I got excited. 

Mercedes-AMG A 45 

Now this is more like it. A Mercedes Benz hot hatch? Yes. I'll take it! This little beasty can crush anything in its class and do it with style and finesse.

Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Estate

You thought a Mercedes hatchback was a bit of a sleeper? Imagine a full-size family wagon that can not only smoke anything in its class, but pretty much anything on the road. If you told me I could have any car I wanted as long as it was a brand new vehicle—I'd, without hesitation—take this 5.5-Liter Biturbo V8 that makes 585 horsepower in a station wagon! Check this out.

The Force Awakens Trailer 3: Soundtrack Only

This music only edit of the third The Force Awakens trailer is a mind-blowing masterpiece. It's instant feels across the board and is hard evidence in hand—much like Soderbergh's silent film Raiders of the Lost Ark experiment—that JJ's accomplished something special here. Thanks to One Perfect Shot for uncovering this gem.

And just a quick note on the marketing perfection that's happening around Episode 7. Disney nailing it so hard. And though some would like to forget it, I think they really figured this out with the marketing of TRON: Legacy. If you remember, that film was seeded extremely well in the community without them giving too much away. Just the way a film should be marketed.

Celebrate Back to the Future Day with Supercuts!

First, catch every "Doc" and "Marty" ever uttered on screen from the fine folks at Screen Junkies.

Then go deep into the sound effects and close-ups that made me wanna go to film school.

Bespoke BMW

Loving this amazing little BMW 2002 build, especially the idea that a car like this needs to be driven. The wear and tear that happens along the way is all part of the experience.

Norway Longboarding

So yeah, everything about this Ishtar X Tussilago video makes you feel completely lazy and super uncool—everything except the hipster Amish kid. I think I got the jump on him at least.
