World’s First Human Loop the Loop


Professional stuntman Damien Walters is used to putting his body in harm’s way to get some great shots but his latest stunt may be the most impressive yet. After seeing countless people perform a loop the loop on a bike or skateboard, Walters thought he could do one better: tackle the loop the loop on foot. Working with MIT’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, Walters was able to figure out exactly what kind of speed he needed and when he needed it in order to complete the feet.

Miss Kara.

The ever talented Kara has been gracing the pages of one of my new favorite sites for the last few weeks.  A lover of all things cold and refreshing, Miss Kara did this shoot on a hot summer afternoon in New York’s lower east side.  Aside from wiggling out of her jean shorts for this shoot, she was also photographed playing Chopin on her white keyboard set up in the kitchen.  A lifetime of classical training was not lost on this one.  I will attend any concert she gives, I promise you that.

Classic BTS Shots.

For those of you unaware of the term BTS, it stands for Behind The Scenes.  Movie magic is one thing for the people enjoying the movies, but for those of us lucky enough to be involved with what goes on in the making of media, being behind the scenes is a one of a kind experience that can sometimes be more entertaining that the final cut.  Below is a selection of some of the most awesome Behind-the-scenes shots I’ve seen from some famous movies found.  Back when set designs were huge and hand made, when special effects where mechanic and photographic and film stars were risking their lives on the set, being behind the scenes was the only place to be.

Eva Kurkova.

The ever so lovely Eva Kurkova, (a.k.a. Temptation), was born on April 4th, 1988 in Isla de Juventud, Cuba.  This diverse and ‘well rounded’ model seems to be able to inhabit any frame she’s put in, with any type of shoot she’s been a part of.  Eva was raised alongside 4 brothers in a fishing town called Nueva Gerona. Her parents are Czechoslovakian (father) and Spanish/Cuban (mother).  She spent her life in Cuba until the age of 9 (in 1997), where she moved to Spain, and started to develop a background in theatrical production.  In 2004, after having  her name associated with a few beauty pagents, Kurkova realized her passion was the limelight.  Since 2005  been living in the United States and following her dreams of modeling.

Transformers 3 Gets A Bit “Racier”

It looks as though the Decepticons have found a new disguise for the upcoming Transformers 3 movie, scheduled for release in 2012. These wild NASCAR-impersonating robots from outer space were seen tearing up the streets of Chicago during filming for the anticipated blockbuster this past weekend. Chevrolet’s presence has been strong throughout the recent popular Hollywood recreation of the 1980′s cartoon series, most notably with Bumble Bee, the yellow and black concept Camaro and the more recent Corvette Stingray concept, both of which were sighted as well during the Chicago shoot. So it’s no surprise that all three of the NASCAR themed stunt-cars are modeled after Chevy-sponsored teams.
