Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, who went from unsigned free agent to leading the NFL in rushing last season, knows the power of hard work and staying positive. (Like, really, really positive.) He also knows the power of a good jam. 'Cause when he's not practicing yoga or eating vegan cuisine--slightly atypical for a pro football player--he's amping up his workouts with new fitness device Armour39 and music at full blast.
We wanted to pump up our muscles and our music collections, so Arian gave us his favorite tunes...and his reasons for loving 'em.

She might not be a movie star, but this Rambo is a lot sexier than Sylvester Stallone's. In addition to being one of the most popular SuicideGirls models (you can see why), she works as SG's model coordinator, scouring the Internet to discover future SuicideGirls.
We had the pleasure of a Skype session with the stunning and very sweet Rambo, who gave us some valuable tips for dating SuicideGirls--and convinced us to pick up a copy of the new SG book "Hard Girls, Soft Light."
So what makes a SuicideGirl, a SuicideGirl?
First of all, we're super independent. We have different kinds of quirky interests and talents and I think a lot of us came from situations in high school where we didn’t really fit in and always felt like outcasts. This is a safe haven for all the weirdos out there to come together and celebrate being unique.
There have been some fantastic entries to MTV2's "Win A Date With Melanie Contest" from guys (and girls) hoping to impress Melanie Iglesias. But one video made our jaws drop, not just because the dude is a ridiculously talented singer/guitarist, but because--as a citizen of Ireland--he's not even eligible to win. He just wanted to share his song, "Melanie," with the world. And we're glad he did, 'cause it's really, really good:
Turns out, he's a bit of a YouTube phenomenon. His name's Alan Patterson, but he goes by "The Sidesho," and his songs have racked up hundreds of thousands of views. He told us all about his career, whether "Guy Code" is popular in Ireland and why Melanie is his muse. He's definitely our favorite Irish guitarist with a fake name since The Edge. Read the interview and watch more of his (occasionally NSFW) videos after the jump.

Melanie Iglesias and Donnell Rawlings from "Guy Code" chilled with Reddit yesterday, fielding a variety of questions about the show, their careers and, uh, chest hair. The duo dispensed Guy Code wisdom, Donnell dished about his character Ashy Larry from "Chappelle's Show" and Mel received the inevitable come-ons, but responded with good humor. (Seriously, guys, just enter the "Win a Date with Melanie Contest.")

Even as the temperature continues to dip outside, baseball fans across the country continue to count the weeks until the opening of spring training. Not to fear, Sony PlayStation just announced the latest version of their highly acclaimed baseball video game "MLB 13:The Show." Along with the announcement came news of this year's cover athlete, Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen. "Cutch" finsihed 2012 with 31 Homers, 96RBIs and 20 stolen bags. He also happened to win the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Award. Not too shabby.
Guy Code Blog sat with Cutch last week in New York to discuss his ideas on video game etiquette, and what it means to grace the cover of "MLB 13: The Show."
What rules of etiquette do you follow when playing "MLB 13:The Show"?
I only have a few, but you need to follow them if you want to play with me:
1) Always make sure your controllers are clean. I don't want to play after someone just ate Cheetos.
2) Make sure you play on the same level as your opponent. No need to show off, it makes you not want to play with them again.
3) No betting money or swearing while playing- My home is a sanctuary and I don’t need to hear the F-bomb dropping. You swear you are out.
4) No "pop-ins." Its rude and it might become awkward if I am playing someone at that time. Call me if you want to get your game on.
5) Don't hold back. Throw out the fast balls, make the big plays and come ready for battle.
On the most recent episode of "Guy Code," the crew laid down the law on house parties: Invite every female you know, hide your valuables and keep it going until either the sun rises or the cops arrive.
For a few extra tips, we sat down with 50 Cent, a guy known to throw a party or two. If you want your bash to be a massive success, not a humiliating bust, heed Fiddy's advice, which is just as applicable to a dorm room as it is to his 55,000-square-foot mansion.
1. Every Party Needs A Theme
"Always pick a theme. So, in the dead of winter I would throw a beach party. Imagine 1,500 people dressed in their bathing suits, jammin' inside while there's snow on the ground outside. A good theme takes time to come up with, but will be rewarding down the line."
Following in the footsteps of Tony Hawk, President Obama and Travis Pastrana, the Terminator himself (also formerly Mr. Olympia, Conan the Barbarian and governor of California) Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared on reddit Tuesday for an "IamA" question and answer session. Ahhnold added in his bio, "I killed the Predator."
He didn't stick around reddit very long, but long enough to answer a bunch of fun questions, occasionally responding in mangled purple cursive on his iPad. He declined to dish on his younger, orgy-filled days (or about "Kindergarten Cop"), but nevertheless made us want to purchase his autobiography, and more likely to see his latest movie "The Last Stand," costarring MTV's own Johnny Knoxville.
Highlights after the jump. Obviously, we implore you to read all the responses in his voice to maximize entertainment value.

Plenty of celebrities, from Ludacris to Snooki, pop up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas for product endorsements--but rap mogul, author and actor (and headphone connoisseur) 50 Cent distinguishes himself by hanging around for the whole week, promoting his various ventures to anyone who'll listen. Fiddy took time to drop some knowledge on us about how to survive "the Super Bowl of gadgets," and which ones have him the most excited.
Jonah Falcon is a man of average height (about 5'9") and above-average length (9" flaccid, 13.5" erect). Although Guinness World Records hasn't certified it, he's the proud owner of humanity's largest dong. So, pretty much the luckiest dude alive, aside from the inevitable TSA pat-downs when he travels.
He's also an actor, blogger and aspiring TV game show host currently pitching an idea to networks ("The Size Is Right," maybe?), but Falcon--yes, his real name--is most famous for his anatomical anomaly. We invited him to discuss it over lunch at a Manhattan bratwurst restaurant... 'cause, you know, sausage, ha ha. "I've actually applied for a job here," he said as we walked inside. (Not as a menu item, we're hoping.)

A successful Thanksgiving leaves you with a belly full of stuffing-topped turkey, gravy-topped potatoes, ice cream-topped pumpkin pie and eggnog-topped whiskey. But mostly it just leaves you with a belly, which you can pat and call your "food baby." Except that it might hurt your chances with the ladies on New Year's Eve.
