LFC: Chicago

I've seen a fair number of mentions of the LFC visit to Chicago, but was unsure if there is any plan to visit a particular bar before hand. Though I cannot think of any bars in the area, I imagine...

HAMSTERDAM ACTUALLY BUILT AN X-WING

728

JJ Abrams continues to appeal to the superfans by building real props, instead of using CGI for Episode 7. The latest is an X-Wing. Pretty neat. There's also mention in this video of the charity drive Force for Change, which allows winners to be in Ep 7, and now also includes a preview screening. So if you're a super-duper-fan, now you can give money to charity to prove it, and be remembered forever.

HAMSTERDAM IS THE WORLD'S WORST VALET

Here's a silent, and not very simple to follow video of what is probably the world's worst valet driver crashing a $500K Lamborghini. I am still not quite sure what the hell happened. Additional photos can be found HERE

WORLD CUP FINAL GAME THREAD

Sorry for the delay. Here's your World Cup Final thread. As of the 15th minute it remains scoreless, though there's been some decent efforts. With a goal Müller would win the Golden Boot. With 2,...

HAMSTERDAM DOES NOT NEED HANDS

774

This video went viral a couple days ago, but there were other things happening, so it's showing up here now. Although pants are optional 'round these parts, if you're going to wear them, you should at least put them on like a boss.

Look at how awkward Sakho is!

Can't believe this might be the future anchor of Liverpool's back line. Look at all that awkwardness. Can't even stay on his feet!

HAMSTERDAM'S HEART IS SINKING LIKE A STONE

776

Beware, thar be large Game of Thrones spoilers on the other end of that link. I won't even tease them. I will admit to being disappointed, though. SERIOUSLY. BIG SPOILER.

HAMSTERDAM IS GIVING THE QUEEN SIDE-EYE

870
The-queen-iron-throne

Queen Victoria's visit to Westeros has been talked about a good bit today, but this photo of Lena Headey throwing daggers at the queen is my favorite. Thanks, UPROXX

HAMSTERDAM IS MADE OF METAL

703
Bqw9lv-iiaanagh

Not, not music metal - though the new Mastodon album is now streaming on iTunes - but the tangible metal. Here is a leaked photo of new Shredder, who kind of looks like a spawn of Edward Scissorhands and Gregor Clegane.

HAMSTERDAM IS STILL CELEBRATING

860

I wandered up to Des Moines to see Eddie Izzard last night (great show), and was lucky enough to see the USMNT win at The Royal Mile with a few pals. It was hot, and crowded, and stressful, and AWESOME, and this guy pretty much nailed the feelings of the victory. That was fun.

HAMSTERDAM IS BREAKING MARIO

988

The game considered Nintendo's "big" reveal at E3 likely depends on the type of game you prefer. You've got Zelda, Star Fox, or Mario. I've embedded Mario because it's the headliner, but everyone knows that Zelda is the best of the three.

HAMSTERDAM IS RECREATING MOVIE MAGIC

920

I have not yet made time for this video, but it keeps popping up as a "MUST SEE", and the premise is good enough for me. Enjoy the GTA V remake of the chase scene in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

HAMSTERDAM BRINGS ALL THE BOYS TO THE Y-A-R-D

607

The Scripps National Spelling Bee was last week, and while overly confident failure kid, and the split title were the early talk from the contest, this is my favorite clip.

HAMSTERDAM IS SENDING PEOPLE INTO SPACE

720
Dragon2-2

Sorry, that's a lie. Elon Musk, and SpaceX, though, ARE going to send people to space in their newly unveiled Dragon V2. The Verge has more. Musk just continues his effort to become a real life Tony Stark.

HAMSTERDAM IS TAKING SEL*crash*

759
Here's another reminder that playing with your phone while driving is a dumb idea. In a related story, airbags sure do smell like hell. (They're fine, albeit a little banged up)

HAMSTERDAM IS AN AMERICAN PHARAOH

698

ALL OF THE SOCCER. PBS is releasing a documentary on former USMNT, and Egypt coach Bob Bradley. That's not necessarily interesting on its own, but when you consider the events occurring in Egypt at the time, it becomes a tale worth telling. Here's the trailer. Maybe check out the actual documentary, too.

HAMSTERDAM IS TERRIFYING CHILDREN

Bobt9oviaae5t6o

McDonalds unveiled their new mascot yesterday, and it's nearly as terrifying as Pierre the Pelican used to be. Watching major corporations fail at marketing sure is becoming the standard. (Looking at you, DTV wireless ads)

HAMSTERDAM IS NOT MEANT TO SAVE THE WORLD

876

I'm a full-blown sucker for Christopher Nolan. Add Matthew McConaughey, and I'm throwing money at my monitor. Hurry up, and get here INTERSTELLAR

HAMSTERDAM LOVES THE CREST

744

As the World Cup draws nearer, it's going to grow increasingly difficult to avoid soccer. This video - episode 1 of a series - comes to us from MLS by way of SB Nation blog Stars and Stripes FC to provide some insight into the American Outlaws.

HAMSTERDAM FOUND BATFFLECK

Zack Snyder teased the new Batmobile earlier this week, and now he's gone a step further with a black & white image of Batffleck. Look at those teeny ears. AAWWWW. As is the norm, thanks to UPROXX for the heads up.

HAMSTERDAM IS PLAYING WITH ITS MOUTH

716

From the mothership comes Ibrahim Hamato, the armless table tennis player participating in the 2014 ZEN-NOH Team Worlds.

HAMSTERDAM IS GIVING THE WORST NOTES

799

‘This is awesome. I really love this. Does it have to have zombies in it?

HAMSTERDAM IS TAKING DIRECTIONS

898

I enjoy the hell out of Kickstarter, and although I found this particular store on The Verge, I'll share it anyway. If you want to help fund a bike that tracks your rides, and gives directions, head on over, and contribute.

HAMSTERDAM CAN'T FIND ANY LIMES

690
79180111

There's a lime shortage, and it's ruining dinners in La Casa Mexican't. This is dumb. FiveThirtyEight says weather and cartels in Mexico are crushing imports. That's dumb. Get it sorted, Mexico.

HAMSTERDAM IS LETTING THE WINNER STAY ON

731

This video was already shared by WSR in the last Ham'dam, but I'm using it again, because I like making it easier to find videos I love. Also because it's more fun than that Donald Sterling recording that everyone has been chattering about this morning.

HAMSTERDAM FOUND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BULLDOG

(Back to FanPosts, because the FanShot widget was being a pain in the ass.) The Drake Relays are upon us, which, apparently means that Drake's Beautiful Bulldog competition is back. 35th annual...

HAMSTERDAM FEARS THE APES WILL TAKE OVER

Monkeysee

Scientists are teaching rhesus macaques math. This is the first step in their world takeover. It's been nice knowing y'all.

HAMSTERDAM IS OUTSELLING EVERYONE

761
Cases_of_beer_or_beer_like_beverage_sold_by_brand__2013

Vox.com is still mostly political, but this story seemed to fit in traditional Hamsterdam discussion. Bud Light sells so much beer that last year it did better than the combined sales of "every imported beer, craft beer, hard cider, and flavored malt beverage". That's crazy.

HAMSTERDAM IS AN EARLY BLOOMER

572

Space is doing weird things again. This time, it's (maybe) causing cherry trees to blossom early. Seeds taken to the International Space Station have blossomed in just 6 years, as opposed to the expected time span of 10 years. So, in conclusion, space is crazy.

HAMSTERDAM IS UHRRRR AHHHHRRRRRR

According to The Hollywood Reporter (b/w/o The Verge), Chewbacca will return for Episode VII. That title is The Verge's interpretation of Chewy speak. That's fun. Also fun, Chewbacca pitching: v...
