Director Darren Aronofsky is known for scaring the crap out of people on the big screen with Black Swan and Requiem For a Dream, but now he’s back doing the same thing on the small screen. Four years ago, the Montana Meth Project hired the auteur to direct a few PSAs that give a very scary and very real look at the effects of meth. Now Aronofsky is back with a few more videos aimed at keeping teens away from the drug.
Though these videos may be aimed at ... Read More

I've recently been obsessed with watching videos of the Longboard Girls Crew. I don't longboard but, these women are just too cool! They carve and slide (check out my fancy terminology!) through the streets with ease, grace, and lots of style. Different from typical skateboarding, longboarding isn't as aggressive, but these girls make it seem like more of an art form rather than a sport. The girls are based in Spain, though there are other sub-groups in other ... Read More
