Check out some behind the scenes action of Real Madrid’s first interview with Chicharito and his first time stepping on the pitch after being presented in the president’s box. “Little Pea’ is most likely with Real to provide backup for Karim Benzema. Real have an option to buy the 26-year-old at the end of the season.

* Nice knot.

The kid seems genuinely excited to be there saying things like, “Playing for Real Madrid is a dream come true” … and “I’ve come here to belong to Real Madrid and I’m delighted to be at this club.”

He made it pretty clear that he’s been a Real Madrid fan for a long time and wants to do everything that he can to help them continue to win.

“You’re going to see a decisive, determined Javier, a professional on and off the field, and I’ll try to repay the trust placed in me. What we want is to win titles and we’ll work hard for it.”

A short film about artist Amber Ibarreche.

mystery kills 2

Amber Ibarreche has been called “The Oprah of Instagram”. She’s from Brooklyn. She drops mad motivationals on the ig. She has some incredible art and designs like this custom t shown above (talk about “1 of 1″) and she’s a damn fine artist.

The video up top shows you a little bit of who she is. I happen to become aware of her because someone was writing about her ig posts. I wanted to find out more of who she was and what she was all about.
