In this world, there's swagger, and there's Dennis Hopper. This new book collects tons of photos from his prime (the long hair and crazy-beard of Easy Rider, the dangerously smooth suit-wearing guy of the '80s and '90s), including his own impossibly cool work as a photographer (shooting Jane Fonda and Paul Newman, among others). Consider it a primer in badass.

Dennis Hopper, ChatRoulette and Lasers
The weekend is the fifth number-one seed.
ChatRoulette—that online treasure trove of strangers, naked people and naked strangers—has now gone to the next level. This site lets you know how many people are on in a given location—right down to the very block. In other words, we know you're on there, Jim Wilson of 207 Providence Drive in Madison.
These are crazy times, but before you go full OCD and begin tracking every single thing you do, you should know that there's an app that can help you go full OCD: Dayta, a strangely comprehensive app that lets you log everything from hours slept and time spent exercising to glasses of scotch consumed. As if exercise and scotch consumption aren't one and the same.
It might be hard for people like us to imagine, but there are some folks in this world who have no idea how attractive they are. That's where this thing comes in—it's a sort of Hot or Not where you can vote on whether someone "could do better" than their current partner. And trust us, they can.
After decades of slow development—email, instant messaging, the wonder that is the keyboard cat video—the Internet has finally fulfilled its purpose: this photo blog, which combines, yes, lasers and... you-know-what. It's the greatest combination since boobs and explosions.
