Andre Saraiva joins forces with Italian photo publication Toilet Paper and French fashion magazineL’Officiel Hommes to present a trailer to the group’s latest collaborative endeavor. Titled “Six Piss Under,” the name plays off of the common phrase for the deceased but in true Maurizio Cattelan style. Those already familiar with Toilet Paper Magazine will be accustomed to the trailer’s subject matter, but for those watching this with no prior knowledge of past works, prepare to be asking a lot of questions.

Banzai Pipeline in Oahu, Hawaii is a surf spot that serves up some of the largest and deadliest waves in the world. If you can hold your own above its razor sharp reef, the surfing community will respect you forever.
Using a GoPro camera and a DJI Phantom quadcopter, aerial photographer Eric Sterman has captured the world’s top surfers taming these massive waves.
The result is a truly breathtaking video from a perspective which used to be impossible for filmmakers to achieve without hiring a helicopter. I’ve watched a few surfing films before (Billabong Odyssey and The Endless Summer are my personal favorites) but this is by far the best footage I’ve ever seen from Pipeline.
Web magazine The Smoking Tire revealed that the the car collection video they published over a year ago was actually the personal garage of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.
Here’s the official description from the YouTube page: Though we originally respected their privacy when they asked not to say who owned the cars, as we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now not to say the cars all belonged to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, two good friends of The Smoking Tire who tragically lost their lives on 11/30/13, and the world is officially a worse off place without them. Paul and Roger will be dearly missed by everyone who ever got to see their smiles, exchange words, or spend time with them at the track. RIP Roger and Paul.
Can’t wait for season two to drop.

So check out this brand new documentary we made at Kim’s mega-mansion and in the studio where our host, Tim Pool, got to lay down some backup vocals for Kim’s upcoming EDM album while talking about online surveillance, file-sharing, and Kim’s controversial case.
Season 3 of Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee kicks off with Louis CK riding shotgun. Gallivanting around town in a 1959 Fiat Jolly in coral orange, they ultimately head to CK’s boat where topics range from their shared history as standup comics, t0 facial hair, to the precarious makeup of the delicate car.

Motorhead magazine teams up with Maiham-Media.com to give you a glimpse into the life of three young at heart car maniacs that own three extremely unique Le Mans’ cars, the Mazda 767B, a Jaguar XJ220LM and the already famous road going Porsche 962C. You may think these cars should be put in a garage or museum for safe keeping, but that is not the case here. Some of them still spend their lives racing around the circuit while others can be found hunting the streets for speed.
These are the “Car Maniacs”, and this is their “Life With Le Mans'”.

There’s a lot of work going into making sure we’re giving Australians the information they want about our food, on the channels that they want to hear about it.
“This initiative is not a flash in the pan – it’s going to be a constant and long-term forum that we’ll be using to allow people to ask their questions and get personal responses. Our Food, Your Questions will allow us to do what we can to give people the information they’re looking for.”
