Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
"Surf House" is a new online reality series that follows four professional surfers (two males, two females) who live together in Hawaii's North Shore. Think "Real World" meets "Blue Crush." Mitch Crews, Michael Dunphy, Alisha Gonsalves and Bree Kleintop are all trying to become household names in the surfing world.
Alisha and Bree are absolutely gorgeous. They're enough to make any man give up land-loving and swim with sharks. However, as we know from living with female roommates, Mitch and Michael can't sleep with them. It gets messy as hell. Watch how Mitch (seemingly an old pro with ladies) keeps Alisha at arms-distance, which only seems to make her want it more.
How far would you go for a chance to sleep with Daenerys Targaryen? Would you walk across a desert? How about fight in a battle? Would you double-cross your allies, cut off their heads and bring them to her in a burlap sack as she soaks in a bath?
That's what Daario Naharis did for her in last night's "Game of Thrones" and Jon Gabrus thinks that's a pretty baller move. You could argue that's a clear violation of Bros Before Hoes. Yet, as we learned from Charlamagne last season, that's an antiquated code. There is more to consider than just the fact they're your bros. For example, do they want to kill your lady crush? Well, then you might have to behead them. Metaphorically.
Watch and learn as Gabrus (now with a stately summer mustache) breaks down this week's Most Guy Code Moment.
Alesha Renee did two seasons of "Guy Code" before moving on to the pinker pastures of "Girl Code." We missed her take in season three, so we caught her during a shoot and asked her some of your questions from Twitter and Facebook.
Want to know how to pick up girls at the gym? How about whether women ever respond to cat calls? And have you ever thought about what Tourettes Syndrome code would be? Alesha breaks this all down and more in the following video.
If you grew up believing that marriage, children and a house payment are inevitable, congratulations, you're 60 years old and our oldest reader. Those things are all options, of course, but for a variety of reasons (poor housing market, progressive thought, improved birth control, high unemployment rate) those things are no longer a given.
DINKs (Double Income, No Kids) are on the rise. Couples living together in committed (or occasionally open) relationships with no intention of having children. Choosing not to procreate is becoming more socially acceptable.
There are plenty of blogs, scientific studies, standup comedy acts, '70s ballads, one-man shows, books, etc. out there to convince you to have or not have kids. That's not what this column is about. These are simply rules you must live by if you decide to live childfree. If you don't, you'll give the rest of us a bad rep. Read More...
Our boy Damien Lemon is starring in a new web series called "D.Lemon in the Morning." He plays a morning radio DJ, who coincidentally has the same name. His show is ranked fourth in the city and it could get to number one, but Lemon is going to have a tough time making that happen with two co-hosts who might land them all in jail and listeners who might also land his ass in jail. The first episode is funny as hell and we look forward to watching more.
We don't know much about Dutch dance and electro house music, but after watching this video, we're going start studying up. THUMP, the new electronic music and culture channel from VICE, has just released a new video of Melanie Iglesias seduced by a raver's glowing fingers as the Dutch electro house banger "Buzzcut" from the DJ duo Bingo Players plays in the background. There really aren't words for it, other than an open-mouthed, "Wow."
"Game of Thrones" geeks like Jon Gabrus have been eagerly anticipating last night's episode. Brienne of Tarth has to battle a grizzly bear with a wooden sword while wearing clothing that's completely foreign to her, a pink dress. Truthfully, Gabrus wasn't as excited for the fight as much as he was for more Brienne. He just can't help but be attracted to that bear of a woman.
The photo above is a great hint towards this week's Most Guy Code Moment. No, Gabrus doesn't award the bear the honor. Watch the video below for the full explanation. Plus, Gabrus even gives us the bonus of naming the Least Guy Code Moment as well.
Sometimes it can be tough for guys to know if they're coming off as creepy or charming. He might have the best of intentions, but the girl just reads the situation as, "DANGER! DANGER!" For example, a guy might watch the movie "Love & Sex" and decide to hire a little person with bongos to serenade his attractive coworker. If the coworker doesn't know where the gesture is coming from, she'll get creeped out and the office will become a very awkward place.
As a way to help out our male readers, we decided to have Jamie Lee from "Girl Code" play a little game called "Creepy Or Charming." We present her with a variety of situations and she tells if it seems like the guy is being cool or a clown.
Tonight on the series premiere of "Girl Code" (10:30/9:30c on MTV), the cast discusses the problems and benefits of roommates. Men only ask themselves three questions when picking a roommate: 1) Will he pay rent? 2) Will he mess with my stuff? and 3) Will he creep out girls I bring home? If the answers are "yes," "no" and "no" (or "yes, but in a funny way"), you've scored a solid bunkmate.
However, when faced with a potential female roommate, guys will overthink it. Maybe we feel like we're being tricked into a committed relationship, or we're worried she'll be a cock-blocker or that we can't just let loose and "be a dude" in our own home. These are all valid concerns, but the potential benefits of a female roommate outweigh the risks.
1. You'll meet more girls
Unless she's one of those girls who "only hangs with guys" because she "hates other girls," chances are a female roommate will have mostly female friends. This is a way for you to meet women while doing nothing. They'll just show up to your place, and they have to be polite to you since you're the roommate.
This can backfire, though, because if you hit it off with one of her friends, your roommate may cock-block you by saying, "You can't sleep with him. I have to live with him and things will get awkward." Still, the more girls you meet, the better your chances. Read More...
If you're a "Game of Thrones" geek like Jon Gabrus, last night's episode is what you've been waiting to see. Let's get the dragons attacking. Let's get an army for Daenerys Targaryen, so she can start kicking ass. And let's remember just how hardcore the ladies in this series are. It's almost like HBO knew MTV's "Girl Code" is premiering this week, because they scheduled one of the most kickass girls' episode yet.
In the above video, Gabrus gives a short recap of this week's episode with the Most Guy Code Moment as the kicker. If you watched the episode, you can already guess who wins his highest praise.
