Watch: Kate Upton Floating In Zero Gravity For ‘Sports Illustrated’ Highlights The Pinnacle Of Human Scientific Achievement

Swimsuits In Space
Because, Science

Yesterday we learned that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue perennial fave Kate Upton WILL appear on the flip-side cover of the 50th anniversary edition of the Swimsuit Issue which features 3 other non-Kate Upton models on the main cover. Today we get to watch behind the scenes video of one of Kate‘s photoshoot for the SI Swimsuit Issue that goes to show how far the advancement of scientific research has taken mankind. Kate was photographed in a zero gravity environment (provided by one of Zero Gravity Corporation‘s Boeing 727 planes which provides weightlessness for 30 seconds at a time) so that she could float around in space while being photographed in various bikinis. To be honest, the shoot looks like it was a lot of fun for everyone involved. The full set of photos from this zero g photoshoot are available HERE and in the pages of SI‘s 50th anniversary Swimsuit Issue on newsstands now.

The Anniversary Issue

The TV Guide

My Monday night was a really quiet one, for the most part, in that I managed to get some stuff done around the house and I managed to finish up some reading that I started over the weekend. I mentioned previously that I spent part of a recent evening catching up on a few issues of The New Yorker magazine that I wanted to get thru and I managed to get that finished last night. The most recent issue is their annual anniversary double issue so there is a lot included for me to read. Yesterday was an anniversary of sorts for me … one that I used to celebrate but now is only a painful reminder. I wish I could tell you that Monday was a great day for me but, unfortunately, it really wasn’t. More »

Mags, ‘Cards’ & ‘Floating In Space’

The TV Guide

My plan was to go out and see a movie last night but I ended up staying closer to home so that I could catch up on some way overdue reading. I try to keep up with reading The New Yorker but, obvs, I can’t always find the time to read the issues when they are delivered and they tend to pile up. I figured I’d spend a bit of time reading an issue or two and the next thing I knew, my evening turned into night and it seemed like the better option to just keep reading. I got almost all caught up so I do feel accomplished. At midnight, the entire second season of House of Cards was released so I was able to starting watching those new eps (OMG!!!!!). Tonight, I have plans to meet up with some very good friends for a truly special concert event. Today is going to be a great day. More »

Barbie Is Featured On The Cover Of The 2014 ‘Sports Illustrated’ Swimsuit Issue

#Unapologetic

For the first time ever, and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the magazine, the Barbie doll is featured on the cover and in the pages of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. As you may be well aware, both Barbie and Sports Illustrated have been criticized in the past over their depictions of the female form and over claims that they offer a skewed and unrealistic impression of female beauty. As such, the two entities have teamed up for this new collaboration and have dubbed the promo campaign #Unapologetic. On the one hand, I can absolutely understand how this pairing could make for a genius marketing move (after all, almost everyone is very familiar with Barbie, the SI Swimsuit Issue or both) but, again, I expect that critics will have a field day with this #Unapologetic collaboration. Click below to get your first look at Barbie on the cover of this year’s SI Swimsuit Issue and learn more about this historic pairing. More »
