That time Evel Knievel fought the Hell's Angels

One night in 1970, daredevil Evel Knievel was preparing to jump his motorcycle over 11 vehicles in front of a packed stadium in San Francisco. Apparently, jumping a motorcycle over a fleet of cars in a confined space wasn't quite butch enough because Knievel also decided to start an epic brawl with the Hell's Angels.

Riddle Pays Tribute to Evel Knievel at WWE Elimination Chamber

Riddle paid tribute to Evel Knievel during the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Riddle has made a major name for himself over the last few weeks, and recent weeks of WWE Monday Night Raw have positioned Riddle for an opportunity to take on Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship. Although Riddle has been struggling to defeat Lashley solo, there was the hope that Riddle would be able to defeat Lashley in the midst of their Triple Threat match during the WWE Elimination Chamber. Though the make up of the Triple Threat match had changed with a last minute addition, Riddle was ready.

SCAD grad’s solo show collides Nascar, Evel Knievel with European history painting

Evan Jones exhibit, “Country Store,” is a hilarious look at countrified tropes. Evan Jones grew up in Cashiers, North Carolina, and his painting show at Thomas Deans Fine Art channels a strain of old-time religion, Nascar, flag-waving patriotism, duck hunting and corporate logos that inform many Southern young ‘uns sentimental educations. His solo show, “Country Store,” is a very funny celebration of the tropes and fixations of rural Southern life that blessedly avoids using a cudgel of irony or snark to make its points. This is an artist who can enjoy the excesses of homemade advertisements, primitive folk art painting styles and alternative history while offering a sharp-witted read on global art history mashed up with his countrified Americana. He has likened his paintings that blend advertising icons like the Michelin Man and Mobil Oil’s pegasus logo to an antique market where objects are mashed up into one mad jumble, devoid of origin or context.
