The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia

This documentary will give you a glimpse into the lives of a troubled family of criminals in rural West Virginia. The infamous White family is as reckless as it is honest. It is this honesty is what will eventually win you over. Brought to us by the folks who brought us the Jackass movie series, Dickhouse, I knew this would be no ordinary documentary. This movie not only lived up to my expectations but it introduced me to some awesome music.

Michael Sirvet – Michael Jordan’s dining room table

Michael Enn Sirvet’s table is the design equivalent to a slam dunk. Sirvet decided to drill a hole for every point MJ scored during his NBA career. The result is vast and and elegant representation of his achievement. A subtle reminder to anyone of what 32,292 points look like.

“[Sirvet] knew that he would be competing against several artists for the honor of crafting a dining room table for His Airness. He wanted something that would catch Jordan’s eye, so he proposed a table drilled with one hole for every point Jordan scored in his basketball career, totaling 32,292 (The table actually has 32,296 holes if you include the holes drilled for each leveling foot, but Sirvet doesn’t count those).

“‘[If I were him,] I’d like to see some manifestation of my life’s work,’ says Sirvet. ‘It’s gotta be cool to sit back and say, ‘I can quantitatively look back at every point I’ve scored.’”
