21 and Over - Movie Trailers - iTunes

Plot:
“Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.”

Will the film reinforce or loosen the stereotype of the hard-working Asian student? What do you think?

Makes me think back to my 21st birthday, what a blast…. of what I can remember anyway.

Greg Needel, mechanical engineer, combat roboticist and toymaker. For his entry this year in the Red Bull Creation competition (last year’s program he built a beer tap that senses the size of a glass and pours the perfect brew) he continued the party theme with a robotic cooler. Bravo, Greg. Enjoy.

Red Bull: Schuster Skate Villa

Taking a neglected hunting lodge and adding a few thousand pounds of wood and concrete, skater Philipp Schuster and a motivated group of friends transformed an old lodge into one of the cooler indoor skateparks around. Highlighted here by Red Bull, the space, complete with hunting decor, represents one of the most unique skate spots around and arguably the best in Salzburg.

1972 Datsun 240Z

1972 Datsun 240Z

$125k

Finding a 40-year-old ride that’s as good as new? Extremely difficult. Finding one that’s even better than when it rolled off the lot? Nearly impossible. Yet that’s the case with this lovingly restored 1972 Datsun 240Z ($125,000).

Coated in an attention-grabbing lime green, it features a 100% stock interior in perfect condition thanks to every piece having been replaced or restored, a body that’s been completely restored by the experts at Miller Brothers Hot Rod Barn, a suspension that’s full of upgrades from Arizona Z Car, and a lightweight SR20DET engine that’s been tuned for two settings depending on your mood: 320 hp when you’re cruising, and a raucous 439RWHP on pump gas with a beautiful graph to boot.

Its been fully rotisserie restored by one of the biggest names in Barrett Jackson auto restoration. No expense has been spared.  The interior of this car is 100% stock and 100% PERFECT. The owner had to track down every piece and replace it or restore it. This is why this car took nearly 4 years at 40hrs/wk to finish.
