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.
The Hangout Music Festival won the weekend and became our new favorite warm weather event. In a genius move, it combines two of the greatest things on earth, live music and sexy ladies in bikinis. How did this revelation not come to music festival promoters earlier? All outdoor events from now on should be hosted on beachfront property: renaissance fairs, hotdog eating contests, book fairs, etc. Each would be improved by the presence of women in bikinis. Below are photos of our favorite sexy ladies enjoying the music and sun.
Everybody knows that ladies love guys who can play an instrument--especially if it's a guitar--but for every rock star swimming in groupies, there's a bassoon player sitting in the corner, playing "Magic The Gathering." Here are some instruments to avoid, unless you're getting tired of all that sex you've been having.
It'll be a party for sure, but if you can't make it down to the beach, don't worry: MTV is joining forces with VH1 and CMT to stream all of the best moments from Hangout 2013 on our official Hangout Hub.
All this sounds great, but we haven't gotten to the best news yet. The very sexy Katherine Webb will be one of MTV's correspondents at the festival. The girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, Webb is famous for nearly causing football commentator Brent Musberger to pass out on live TV when cameras found her in the crowd at this year's BCS National Championship Game. She's parlayed that 15 seconds of fame into national modeling work, a spot on the ABC reality show "Splash" and now working a gig with us!
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."
If you're a multi-platinum selling rapper, you probably don't have much trouble getting laid. But for guys who aren't musical superstars, a six-string might be more helpful than a mic.
At least, that's according to new research from the University of Southern Brittany in France. Behavioral scientists had a 20-year-old dude ask 300 college-aged girls for their numbers. (Not the worst job in the world.) A third of the time he carried a guitar case, a third of the time he carried a gym bag and a third of the time he carried nothing.
With the ax, he got 31% of their digits. With nothing, he got 14%. And with the gym bag, he got 9%. Which confirms previous Israeli research on the subject, and raises a question: Why do girls despise gym bags so much?
It's not exactly shocking that ladies love men with musical talent, except that talent apparently isn't even necessary. Hell, a guitar isn't even necessary...all you need is a guitar case. If we'd known it was this easy, we would've never paid for lessons.
So you want to play music and even do some home producing, huh? Are you sure? You know that making music yields no money for most artists, right? Are you ready for a life of poverty that might or might not lead to gigs at dingy bars? Really?
Well, you're still here, so we'll give you some pointers to get you started. Forget about "Big Pimpin'" yacht parties and wearing clothes you laughed at when you were broke; you have to get your skills down before thinking about anything close to the big time.
1. Spend a little dough on equipment
As you'll quickly realize, music's not a cheap hobby, from buying equipment to going all-in with a DAW. Spend time researching items you'll need, and try them out at a music shop before you commit. A combination of local Guitar Centers, Sam Ashes and mom-and-pop shops probably have what you need on display.
Online customer reviews and other secondhand accounts are helpful, but if you don't feel comfortable with whatever you're using, you're only playing yourself.
When writers on the internet make fun of Coachella (and boy, do writers on the internet make fun of Coachella), they often start with people like the guy above. Look at him show off his ample armpit hair and his fancy smartphone. Look at that pose. Look at those unnecessary arm bands. Look at his "freaking awesome, bro" headdress.
Chief Poses With Phone is by no means alone in perpetuating the stereotype of Coachella attendees as insufferable doofs. We've gathered a handful of pictures showing even more. If you scroll down and find a photo of yourself, don't feel too bad. You can always dry your tears with those piles of cash you peeled a few hundreds from to attend the festival.
Why didn't Hansen stop singing? According to police, it might've been revenge. The couple had been fighting because "Hansen accused Malson of drinking all the alcohol in the house." In fact, cops say, "his face was flushed and it was difficult to tell if the redness was from alcohol intoxication or from Malson grabbing his neck."
Regardless, she's now facing domestic violence and harassment charges. On the bright side, at least this couple finally has a tune they can consider "their song."
A lot has changed since the very first MTV Movie Awards all the way back in 1992. For starters, viewers were unable to vote for the winners via the Internet. We don't wanna lecture you on how life was back in the days of Heather B. and "Liquid Television," though. What we'd like to do is celebrate the 22nd Movie Awards with a trip down memory lane. Turn off the Super Nintendo, put aside your Jordan Dream Team jersey, and catch up on the winners/nominees/performers from the '92 Movie Awards.
When he decided to hang up his action-flick boots, he was elected governor of California. Among many other bills passed, his most popular one was the legalization of (cough, cough) medical marijuana. Nowadays, Schwarzenegger is returning to films, but not without a little scandal in the form of knocking up his maid. That's a judgment day we'd want no part of. Read More...
