Every Day, This 99 Year Old Woman Sews a Dress for a Needy Child

This is Lillian Weber of Scott County, Illinois. She's 99 years old but still very active. Every day, she sews a dress for Little Dresses for Africa, a charity that sends clothing to impoverished children in Africa. She gets up in the morning, starts to work on a dress, takes a break, then finishes in the afternoon. For the past 2 years, she repeated this routine daily, producing 840 dresses. Ms. Weber plans to make 150 more by next May when she will turn 100 years old.

Ms. Weber works from a standard pattern, but she personalizes each dress by combining different fabrics and trims. A child who wears one of her dresses isn't getting a copy of a mass-produced dress, but an original.

This Psychedelic Art Is Actually A Birdsong Visualized

Andy Thomas is an artist who has a healthy appreciation for the beauty of bird songs, and a gift for creating technological innovations that help bring the beauty of the natural world alive in the digital realm.

He has created a way to visualize bird songs, which when visualized look like something you’d see while tripping on peyote, or after getting hit too hard in the head. 

(Video Link)

What you’re seeing is a product of a software that works much like previous visualizers WinAmp and that one nobody uses on iTunes, but this software is heavily influenced by Andy's own artistic vision, as you can see in this visualization of a crow's song:

(Video Link)

If Andy ever invents some Oculus Rift style 3D visor capable of rendering these birdsong visualizations in real-time people are suddenly going to become mighty interested in birdwatching!

Usagi Yojimbo Stop Motion Short That May Lead To A Feature Film

The ronin rabbit Usagi Yojimbo was created by Stan Sakai in 1984, at the height of the anthropomorphic comic book character craze, but Usagi has always been a bit different than the other critter comic stars.

His tales were less about life as a rabbit and more about the life of a ronin, because in Usagi’s alternate version of Japan's Edo period every character is an animal, so he doesn't have to wear a disguise or deal with mutant problems like his friends the Ninja Turtles.

Usagi was a fan favorite from day one, and his action packed comics are just as fun to read today as they were when they first came out, so why hasn’t Usagi Yojimbo been adapted for the big screen? 

(Video Link)

A film adaptation is finally being discussed, and as this proof-of-concept short film released by Lintika Films reveals it might actually live up to the geeky dreams of Usagi Yojimbo's fans.

Lintika seems to be staying faithful to the source material, but they still have to overcome a budgetary hurdle before the film can actually begin production.

Danger Zone Flight Academy - Archer Airlines


Danger Zone Flight Academy by Beware 1984

Sterling wanted a logo badass enough to represent him to the public, so he went straight to famed tattoo designer Steve "Gingivitis" Green. Sterling told Steve what he wanted in a logo- scary, manly, danger zone, freakin' cool, and Steve came up with this amazing logo for the Duchess' Danger Zone Flight Academy. Sterling was so proud of it that he wore a t-shirt with the logo underneath his cool spy clothes, and after one particularly long bender he even had the logo tattooed on his chest, so he wouldn't forget the good old days of ISIS...

Television super spies don't come much cooler than Sterling, and this Danger Zone Flight Academy t-shirt by Beware 1984 is the coolest way to show your love for that animated man of mystery!

Bodega Cats in Their Own Words

(YouTube link)

Bodega cats are cats that live in the neighborhood stores of New York City. They protect the groceries from vermin better than any pesticide, and greet customers daily. WNYC Radio produced a series of videos called Bodega Cats in Their Own Words, each featuring one store. The voices are provided by the store owners, who know their cats better than anyone. This one is about Oliver, a stray adopted by a bodega proprietor on the Upper West Side. Continue reading to see Carmel, Victoria, and Sheeba.

A Happy Baby Wombat Photoshop Battle

Wombats are pretty cute when they’re all grown up, but when they’re babies they look like something that would star in a sci-fi movie as comedy relief, in other words strangely alien yet somehow still extremely cute.

(Image Via nusigf)

The wombat's unique look makes them the perfect targets for memeification, cute animal photo shares and, of course, the fantastic world of photoshop battling.

Here are a few selections from the battle that started with an image shared by Redditor nusigf

We have his appearance on Conan:

The extremely appropriate Dobby disguise:

Kids Reenact Emmy-Nominated TV Shows

(YouTube link)

The Emmys will be presented this coming Monday night. The nominees for Outstanding Drama series are all shows that children should not watch: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Detective, House of Cards, Mad Men, and Downton Abbey. That’s why they had to memorize lines to re-enact representative scenes from those shows in this parody video from Mom.me. The kids did a wonderful job, but the incongruity of the young actors in those familiar adult roles is just too funny! -via Viral Viral Videos

The Perfect House For All Seasons

Tehran, Iran is known for its stifling summers and freezing winters, so most traditional homes in the area have a nice, cozy living room for winter and an open, light-filled one for summer. This house is by no means traditional and instead of offering two different living rooms for summer and winter, it instead offers three rotating rooms that can be open to the sun and wind or closed up against the harsh winters. The central structur is open, allowing the natural light from the glass ceiling and the open front windows to fill the whole home with a warm glow all year round.

John Muir Took the Scenic Route

When an accident robbed John Muir of his sight, he gained a vision that shaped the National Park Service.

John Muir was living the American Dream. In 1867, Muir, who had emigrated from Scotland as a boy, parlayed his technical acumen and inventive spirit into an engineering gig at an Indianapolis carriage factory. The job was good, but Muir especially liked that it left him with plenty of time to pursue his true passion: botany. As Muir delved deeper into the subject, he dreamed of trekking through the South to study the region’s plants.

Then in March, Muir suffered a horrific accident. An awl flew off a machine and into his face and blinded him. Muir’s promising career as an inventor seemed doomed, and he spent six weeks resting in a darkened room. As friends visited him and read accounts of  far-flung wildernesses like Yosemite, Muir made a deal with himself. If he ever recovered his sight, he’d give up machinery and spend his days studying plants in the wild.

Miraculously, Muir’s vision returned. And he kept his promise. In September, he set out on history’s most audacious road trip: a 1,000-mile hike from Indianapolis to the Gulf of Mexico. Muir took the scenic route. “My plan was simply to push on in a general southward direction by the wildest, leafiest, and least trodden way I could find,” he wrote in his journal.

Muir traveled light. He carried only a press to preserve plant specimens, a Bible, a change of underwear, and a book of Robert Burns’s poetry. His few belongings meant that he was reliant on the kindness of anyone he passed. As he wrote, “I oftentimes had to sleep out without blankets, and also without supper or breakfast. But usually I had no great difficulty in finding a loaf of bread in the widely scattered clearings of the farmers.”

Although food was scarce, natural beauty was abundant.

Number five on the list is the Costco True Earnings American Express card. This card benefits Costco members with two percent cash back on all Costco purchases, up to $4000 per year. Other perks include two percent cash back on travel purchases, three percent on gas purchases and one percent on all other purchases.

Chocolate and Lime Flavors: Toothpaste Just Jumped The Shark

CHOCOLATE CREST

Image Via

Toothpaste has always served one major purpose. To get your teeth clean. But over time, toothpaste companies have often tried odd ways to bring in new clients by offering up strange alternatives. Like this color changing toothpaste, for example. But I will go on record to say that I think maybe, just maybe, Crest just jumped the toothpaste shark. A quick glance at the above photo will tell you all you need to know.

Apparently, Crest thinks we need to be more "adventurous, inspired, and dynamic, and they think we are going to be able to achieve that by indulging in, what sound to be, terribly flavored toothpaste varieties. When your toothpaste is bottle is telling you that you need to be more adventurous, and proceeds to pour a minty chocolate paste onto your brush, something is wrong. If you need to be more adventurous, maybe just go for a nice hike?

They are also offering vanilla mint (which truthfully, doesn't sound that awful) and a lime mint combo that sounds like something out of my foodie nightmares. We give Crest points for being brave, but this feels like jumping the shark to me, and I didn't even think toothpaste could do that.

Kentucky Fried Chicken Haircut Earns Man Free KFC Food for Life

Miguel Rosas isn’t just a barber. He’s an artist with your hair. From the New Style Barbershop in Moline, Illinois, he carves highly realistic images into hair. With a splash of paint, he can also put in some color.

Recently, Rosas gave one of his clients this KFC logo haircut. Afterward, he and the client went to a local Kentucky Fried Chicken to eat. WQAD describes the reaction:

“When we went inside everybody pretty much just stopped working,” Rosas said, while shaving a flame design into a client’s head. “All the employees came up to us and started taking pictures of the design.”

Just a few hours later, a KFC district manager called Rosas and asked to see the haircut:

“He told me that they wanted to possibly get my work on the KFC website and possibly use it on a commercial,” Rosas said.

The manager also gave Rosas vouchers for free food. He said that when he ran out of vouchers, he could just call and get more.

Here are some other amazing hair designs that Rosas has made.

Griffen Von Porkchop

I’ve been seeing this cat’s picture all over the internet today, and I just love that snaggletoothed expression! His name is Griffen, and he belongs to redditor jonosvision, who says,

He is a healthy and happy adult cat. He was diagnosed with asymmetrical jaw and had his upper left canine removed once his adult teeth started growing in since it was digging into his gums. Now he has a snaggle tooth but besides that he's 100% healthy and happy and will be 4 years old in November.

Griffen now has his own Instagram where you can see plenty of pictures, including kitten pics.  -via reddit

Photo Essay Reveals The Everyday Lives Of Trailer Park Folks

There’s one particular place of residence that changes the way people think about you at the mere mention that you live there, one park that most people in the surrounding neighborhoods don’t want to visit, with a name that sounds more fun than the reality contained within.

That place is the trailer park- where residents become marginalized, disregarded and generally cut off from the rest of society simply because they can’t afford to live anywhere else.

Photographer David Waldorf went in to a trailer park in Sonoma, California looking for a few good shots, and he came away with a photographic story to tell about the park's residents.

David's photo essay exposes trailer park residents for who they really are- human beings from a lower economic status living life their own unique way, in a microcosm that seems miles away from "regular" society yet exists right next door to us all.

10 Incredible Female Daredevils

There are gender norms in our society that are archaic and silly. Expectations thrust on either sex because of outdated reasons, and it takes big thinking to change that. To try and change something that has been a cornerstone in society for so long is hard, but this makes it a lot easier. There is a list over at ODDEE right now that I think many of you (us) need to see. It is a comprehensive list of some of the more well known female daredevils throughout history. Daredevils like Jolene Van Vugt, who is seen here shattering some records and melting faces with her awesomeness in a normally male-dominated sport. The best part is, that is just one example.

neato oddee

How about a wing walking team of three females who risk it all and show the world the only thing between the genders are the invisible walls and fence we all put there? There is even a woman who went over Niagara Falls in a barrell.  Yes, we are talking that hardcore. So check out the list right here and allow yourself a moment to realize, we are all one, and we are all insane!

19 Interesting Facts About Beethoven



Most people are aware of key facts about Ludwig van Beethoven, such as his gradually going deaf while still composing masterpieces. This Mental Floss article digs deeper, featuring nineteen lesser known facts about the brilliant composer. 

For example, Beethoven's father was more than a little bit of a "stage parent." On the contrary, he seems downright cruel. Recognizing that young Ludwig was musically talented, his father became intent on proving he was a prodigy on the level of Mozart, who was fourteen years older and already well known.

Unlike Mozart, who took to instruments and practice more naturally, Beethoven's father forced him to play at all hours. Neighbors of the Beethoven family remembered Ludwig as a child, standing on a bench to reach the keyboard and crying as his father prodded him to continue playing. That puts many of his intense and foreboding pieces in a new light!

Russians React To Speed Bumps In Very Russian Manner

Over the last half decade and with the help of dash cams and the internet, Russians have become sort of the archetype for the idea of a badass. Someone who can see a meteor enter the skyline while they are driving in to work in the morning and not even react, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Russians are formed from solid stone and survive by wrestling bears, and their complete disregard for speedbumps proves this fact. I drive over these things at about 5 m.p.h. Some Russians, on the other hand...   The best part is, there are people clearly aware at how partially insane some Russian drivers are, so they are sitting there filming. Glad to know there is someone out there who understands that hitting a speed bump at sixty will not benefit you in any way and may do some serious damage to the undercarriage of your car and your tires. Or they were just filming because it is hilarious. Definitely one of those two.

Perfectly Timed Dog Photos

Previously, we've featured photos taken at precisely the right moment. This collection focuses exclusively on dogs. Canine companions are present for the good and bad times in the lives of their humans. Their constant companionship means they are in our photographs as well, whether we plan it that way or not. Sometimes their appearances in the frame result in comedy, as seen here. Take a look at other examples of wonderful canine photobombs at this link.

Some Of The Most Pointless Action Figures Ever Made

When toy companies keep pumping out product you end up with a bunch of figures that never should have seen the light of day, figures that are lacking one key word- action.

The Doctor Who craze ushered in by the series reboot resulted in a bunch of bad action figure releases, but no figure in the collection was more pointless than Destroyed Cassandra, the frame from which an animated flap of skin once hung:

The Waltons wasn’t a very exciting show, but even they got their own toy line, and for the sake of completion they released every member of the family- including Grandma and Grandpa Walton, the least action packed figures ever.

On the other hand, Starsky and Hutch was an action packed show worthy of having an action figure line, but releasing a figure for a drunken bearded man who never appeared on the show is the epitome of pointless:

And, last but certainly not least in terms of pointlessness, what action figure collection is complete without a side of beef? That's right- it's the iconic 1/2 cow Sylvester Stallone socked up real good in the movie Rocky.

Check out the rest of the figures that made io9's list of13 More of the Most Pointless Action Figures Ever Made, and see what your toy collection has been missing all along!

The Ice Cream Cloud and Other Great Photos by Emily Blincoe

The Instagram profile of Emily Blincoe is filled with gems, but these two are particularly outstanding. At the top, you can see a colorful arrangement of fallen ice cream cones. She writes the caption, "FORECAST: cloudy with a chance of ice cream." Below that you can see dog Eleanor haloed in flowers. Good dogs certainly are.

Blincoe is an Austin native who, if I understand correctly, currently lives in Nashville. She has a real gift for arranging objects in photos. You can see this strongly in her color-coded candy series.

Han With Friend - Rolling Solo Is No Fun


Han With Friend by Zarkan

We all know how Han acted solo- brash, cocky, a bit rude, and totally aloof even in the middle of a blaster battle, but we never got to see how he acted on his downtime. When he was hanging around the Falcon with his pal Chewie, tossing a few back in the cantina with Chewie, or happily jumping up and down with Chewie, Han was truly happy and looked more like a little boy than a bad boy!

See Solo in a whole new light on this Han With Friend t-shirt by Zarkan, it has the power to make people smile and put stars in the eyes of sci-fi fans.

The Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno is One of a Kind

Image: Flickr user Ondablv

The Cimitero Monumentale di Staglieno (Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno) in Genoa, Italy, which opened in 1851, is known worldwide for its fantastic sculpture. One of the largest cemeteries in Europe, its origin is associated with Napoleon's 1804 Edict of St. Cloud, which became law in Italy in 1806. The edict ruled that every burial was to be conducted outside of city walls, and burial monuments had to be the same size and were granted by committee. A portion of the hillside of Staglieno was originally chosen for the location of the cemetery due to its sparse population and acceptability within the rules of the edict. 

As the cemetery grew, English, Jewish and Protestant sections were added. Among the notable names buried there is the wife of Oscar Wilde, Constance Lloyd. Frequent visitors included Mark Twain and Friedrich Nietzsche.
