Shirtless Prince Harry Immortalized In London Gay Bar Mural

“Pride” takes on a whole new meaning at Manbar, a London gay bar that just got its own shirtless Prince Harry mural — our royalty is more bangable than your royalty, Swedes. Manbar commissioned artist Mike Bliss to put a shirtless Hot Ginge outside its Charing Cross pub and surprise, surprise, it’s quite popular with the ladies … and gentlemen.

Lady Gaga Learned Everything She Knows From Leigh Bowery

While I really can’t stand much of Lady Gaga’s music, the bitch does know how to style herself so that everybody’s talking about her all the time. Like, take the weird outfit she wore to the airport in Spain this past weekend. It’s so bulbous and ungainly and unflattering, but in a totally pointed way. But you know? Her style? It’s kind of a rip-off/homage to another incredible artist: Leigh Bowery. I’m not the first to see the connection between the two — it’s been written about and noted by everyone from Colette to Vogue — but the genius and dark subversion of Bowery’s work has to be seen to be believed.

Have you ever gone to the movies and sat behind someone who’s talking and texting and throwing popcorn and thought, I wish a ninja were here to kick that guy’s ass? Well if you’re watching a movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London, your wish could very well come true, thanks to a new campaign called, fittingly, “Invisible Cinema Ninjas.” Here’s how it works: volunteers dressed in black lycra “Morphsuits” are given free movie tickets in exchange for hiding in a dark corner of the theater and keeping an eye on the audience. If anyone dares pull out their cellphone or start up a side conversation with a friend, the ninja will leap out of the darkness and incapacitate them with a karate chop to the throat give them a stern warning. “The ‘Cinema Ninjas’ may sound ludicrous, but they have been a real success in clamping down on those ruining films for everyone else with inconsiderate behavior,” says the theater’s PR rep.

Damn, first the hot tub cinema, now cinema ninjas? London really knows how to make the most of the movie-watching experience. [Oddity Central]

Welcome to Ami's #1 life dream. Read More »

I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tub parties where guests can sip bubbly, flirt with moviegoers in neighboring hot tubs, watch the sun set over the London skyline, and enjoy quality films such as “Anchorman.” I can think of worse ways to spend a September evening.

Race Imboden is a 19-year-old DJ from Park Slope and a member of the U.S. Olympic fencing team who was eliminated from competition by Italian fencer Andrea Baldini. As much as we’ll miss his athletic skills and dramatic lunges, we must admit we’re going to miss his partially shaved, self-described “classical mad man haircut” even more. Here’s to 2016!

“Downton Abbey” Left The Manor For The Olympics

The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking of the Countess … the season three promotional cast shot is online, and it features some of the heralded new castmates and a foreboding dark sky (oooh symbolism!). Check it out after the jump!

This Sandcastle Replica Of London Is Giving Me Anxiety

This incredible sandcastle version of London’s famous architecture is currently being finished and detailed by sculptors at the Sand Museum in Tottori, Japan in honor of the 2012 Olympic Games. If you weren’t amazed enough by the mere existence of a sand museum, get this: the sandcastle exhibit will open to the public on April 14th, and the plan is for the castle to stay intact until January 2013. The fragility of sandcastles has always freaked me out a little, and damn, now I’m also worried about the Sand Museum janitor who will inevitably trip and crush Westminster Abbey. [Architizer]

The Ballad Of Bobcat And James

Anybody who’s ever owned a cat knows that they choose you as much as you choose them. And that’s what makes the story of stray cat Bobcat and his owner James all the more remarkable. James, a street musician, takes Bobcat with him everywhere that he goes, and Bobcat happily seems to comply, even submitting to wearing a harness and walking around the streets of London with James on his daily jaunts. As James often reiterates to passerby, if he didn’t want to be there, he wouldn’t, but it’s clear that cat and man have a strong bond. [Laughing Squid]
