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.
Remember that time Girl Talk put out that song that mashed all those other songs together? That was awesome. Also awesome, Girl Talk's mullet in this video. Lastly awesome, this video itself and the interview with Girl Talk, or "Greg" as he likes to call himself, conducted by the incomparable hosts of "The Check-In," Jeff and Eric Rosenthal. You'll be entertained by the discussion of copyright law, playing tennis with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and an intense Atari Teenage Riot show, and you'll be educated by this remarkably professional demonstration of how to conduct an interview. OK. We good? Cool.
Here's a theory: There's nothing in life more fun than driving a go-kart. You're thinking, "What about eating, watching 'Designing Women' and doing it?" And I'm acknowledging that those things are fun, but telling you that they're not more fun than go-karts.
If you still don't believe me you need to take part in an endurance karting race, like the contestants on "Burnout: The Ultimate Drag Race Challenge" do on this weekend's episode. Do it with some friends, too, so you can make fun of the fat ones for driving slow and the girls for running into walls. Making fun of fat people and girls, they're the only things even remotely as fun as driving go-karts.
"Burnout: The Ultimate Drag Race Challenge" airs Saturday at 12p/11c.
"So You Think You Can Dance" struck again last night with erotic dancing and half-naked women. The show is the greatest worst-kept striptease secret on network television. Back in the '90s guys actually had to exert effort when they boob-surfed the boob tube. Now, TV networks are serving it up on a platter on top of a lazy Susan. Not complaining--just saying. The hottest moments of last night's "So You Think You Can Dance" are ranked in the video below.
In the middle of his decade-long tenure at Sports Illustrated, Steve Rushin once wrote: "Perhaps you've noticed, the men at the top of baseball's all-time saves list are at the bottom of baseball's all-time shaves list."
Little has changed since then. Today, pitchers sport 'staches, beards and goatees of all varieties to give them a mental edge, a sort of primal, furry battle cry. But inside every lip lizard, nose merkin and wideburn, there's a dark side. Sure, they make you look tough at first, but they can turn on you in an instant, like old sushi. One second, you're standing on the mound looking like you were touched by Gods of Selleck, and the next you're just a dude, alone on a hill, with schmutz on your face.
So here, for your appreciation, we offer 10 examples of this stunning shift. Read More...
Happy Bastille Day! Those of you still calling your French fries "Freedom Fries" may not know that today is French National Day. It's essentially the same thing as Fourth of July for Americans. Don't worry, this post is not going into a European history lesson. Clutch is honoring today with GIFs of what we consider to be France's national sport: Parkour.
Parkour is like skateboarding without a deck. Participants run across urban landscapes and jump over walls, fences and cars. It sounds lame in print, but in action it's a sport of impressive moves, flips and face-plants. See for yourself after the jump. Read More...
Lupe Fiasco announced yesterday on his blog that he's gathered the strength to officially swear off his most serious addiction--Twitter. After gaining more than 723,000 followers, the rapper decided to give up his 140-character habit and handed his account over to "Glow In The Dark" tour mate and collaborator, Nikki Jean. Critics will view this as nothing more than a publicity stunt on par with Charlie Sheen's regular assertions that he's not addicted to drugs. Fiasco even plugged Nikki Jean's new debut album, which he performs on in track "Million Star Motel."
Is it possible though that Lupe is the first in a series of celebrities who will give up Twitter? Does he foresee the site starting to slowly slump into the social media graveyard with Friendster and MySpace? Probably not. Celebrities are more hopped-up on Twitter than '80s stockbrokers on cocaine. Where else will Chad Ochocinco ask pertinent questions like "How do I get a spot on #Congress" and Justin Bieber tell @lindsayvonn "great meeting you tonight." Sorry, Fiasco, Twitter is here to stay and will tempt you back in no time.
Ahhhh, the ESPYs--the one night each year when athletes get together to pat one another on the back and hand out the only awards more meaningless than a Pro-Bowl selection. For as much as sports fans like to bitch about them, the ESPYs tend to be a entertaining enough. What else are you going to watch on a night when every baseball team is off?
If you want to find out who won all the ESPYs last night, you can do that at plenty of other websites. But if you want to find out who the winners and losers of the acutal event were, you can only do that here at the first ever ESPY Awards Awards.
There's no better excuse than summer to have a 64-babe, single-elimination bikini bracket. We'll be rolling out the matchups for the entire month of July. Voting on Round Two contests will remain open until Sunday, July 17 at 10 p.m. ET.
UPDATE: Voting has now closed for this round. Vote in the current match-ups here.
