Moving to California for snowboarding is spontaneous. Keeping his Back East Stencil Geek roots is quite another.

Growing up in Massachusetts, 23-year-old Keegan Flynn first found his passion for stencil art thanks to his AP Art teacher Mr. Barry. After working one afternoon in his woodshop’s spray booth, Keegan didn’t just go home with some portfolio self portraits. He went home knowing stenciling was where he wanted to direct his attention.

Reynolds is quoted in the magazine saying, "The most difficult part is going to be organically working this title into a conversation with random strangers." He even pokes fun at his new husband privileges, "Now it's going to be, 'Sexiest man, take out the garbage."

Get Forever Lazy

“I always loved the movie Office Space as a kid, but never really understood how true the references were until I graduated from college and got into the corporate world. I hated having to wake up early to do something that I hated doing, and, like [the character] Peter, ‘ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it.’”

Does this way of thinking strike a chord? According to Tyler Galganzki, this is exactly the way he once felt. That is, until him and friend Dave Hibler decided to do something about it. “Ironically enough, I spent my days working hard to figure out ways that I could get away with doing less work. It's not that I was lazy or didn't want to work. It's that I just didn't care. That's when I realized that I wanted to work for myself and make my work my passion: Laziness. I had had enough of corporate politics, multiple bosses, pointless meetings and mission statements. I knew that there was no way that I was going to last another 40 years of my life in such an environment.”

Greenest Country You Say

According to National Geographic's Greendex, India is currently the greenest country in the world.

The country takes first for the second year in a row being ranked as 62.6 percent green. The country beat out the other 16 countries that are indexed because of the way they maintain their goods and foods indexes.

Who's the lowest? Well, Americans. Let's just take a peek into the mirror shall we? America is the lowest for the third consecutive year in a row. There does seem to be an increasing trend though. The US score is up 1.3 points since 2009 and 2.6 from 2008.

Going green. Changes being made in a worldly effort.

Remotely Creative Pillow

New remote control pillow—for those who tend to lose the remote and those who apparently have a brown color schemed living room.

Pillow Universal Remote Control is a fully functional remote with fabric buttons sewn-in. It does everything a regular remote can do such as turning up and down the volume, changing the channel and accessing the DVD and VCR.

Creative, yet bland. Buyer's are sure to give it a try if more color choices became available. Just be careful to not fall asleep and leave a drool stain. The $30 cushion does take two AAA batteries.
