100+ Famous Artists and Their Studios

Frida Kahlo

The workspaces and studios of any artist or creative says a lot about them. Do they like the space to be flooded with natural light, like Hans Hartung? Is the space imbued with a sense of style, like that of Roy Lichtenstein? Do they have drafting desks or easels? Salvador Dalí actually invented a mechanism that let his paintings be raised or lowered as necessary with pulleys.

See well over 100 famous artists in their studios, including Picasso, Monet, Pollock, Chagall and Munch in this user-submitted collection at Bored Panda.

Cat and Tortoise

(YouTube link)

It’s a game of cat and mouse, er, cat and tortoise. No, it’s more like tag. You’re it! Too bad the turtle is always the one tagged. He’s trying his best, though. He’s pretty fast for his species, but the cat, of course, has the upper hand. Or Paw. -via Tastefully Offensive

Friday the 13th Coffee Table

When entertaining visitors at home, it’s helpful to have a low table near the main seating area in order to serve coffee and tea. This helps create a welcoming atmosphere that builds warm relationships. For that purpose, the prop shop Slaughter FX built this custom coffee table that looks like the ruptured crypt of Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th horror movie franchise.

Rare Photos of Boris Karloff on Frankenstein Sets, Circa 1930s

Karloff in makeup department

Vintage Everyday has published these wonderful photographs of English actor Boris Karloff on the set of James Whale's classic film Frankenstein, which premiered in 1931, as well as on the sets of the sequels. Frankenstein's monster became the character that Karloff was best known for during his career as an actor; Karloff went on to play the monster in Bride of Frankenstein and Son of Frankenstein. After those films, his popularity surged. 

For Frankenstein, the 5'11" Karloff had to drag around more than his large frame. His costume included four-inch platform boots that weighed 11 pounds each. The facial makeup was burdensome as well, but Karloff handled it professionally and with good humor. Karloff also was beloved for his later voice work as the Grinch in Dr. Seuss' 1966 animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!  

Be sure to visit the link above to see the full photo gallery. It's worth the time of any film or monster movie enthusiast.

Give Her An Egg!

(YouTube link)

When I was 16 months old, I got the jelly jar out of the refrigerator and sat on the floor and ate it with my hands. That’s the extent of my food preparation experience as a toddler. Tony Quarella and his wife included their 16-month-old daughter in their family cookie-making project. Well, they gave her the hat. Then that gave her an egg. What do you suppose happens when you give a toddler an egg? You might be surprised! -via reddit

Cheesy Stock Photos, Starring Vince Vaughn



To promote his new movie Unfinished Business, Vince Vaughn and other members of the cast including Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson are lending their likenesses to a set of typically goofy stock photos. The images, which will be available for free download, were created in a joint effort by Twentieth Century Fox and iStock by Getty Images. While we've seen the Stock Photobomber innovate his way into the camp of stock photography, this is the first time it's been done in this manner and with recognizable faces. 

Twelve free downloadable images will be made available here over a period or three weeks. See the full set at Ad Week.

6 Ways to Impress the Idiots You Went to High School With

When you leave home after high school, seeing the world changes you. Then you go back home to visit your parents and you encounter your old friends -the ones who never left. Or possibly you’re there for a reunion weekend. Whatever, it’s an important time to try to let them know you’ve done well since you’ve been gone. Reconnecting can be fun, but just like high school, it’s all a matter of one-upmanship. J.F. Sargent has a list at Cracked about what you should do. Only it isn’t what you’d expect. As Ron Burgundy said, “Boy, that escalated quickly.” Be warned this is like no other Cracked list we’ve posted here before -but that’s all I will tell you.

Rock Band Meets Young Fan with Down Syndrome, Responds Perfectly to Him

(Photo: The Kane Show)

10-year old Christopher Warner of West Friendship, Maryland loves the rock band Maroon 5. He absolutely adores their work, especially that of frontman Adam Levine. His teacher, Avery Stanert, made a video of Christopher raving about Maroon 5. That video went viral and eventually came to Adam Levine's attention.

Maroon 5 invited Christopher, his mother, and his teachers to attend one of their concerts. They got backstage passes and the chance to meet the band.

When it came time to meet them, Christopher had a panic attack. He lay down on the floor and wouldn't get up. That wasn't a problem for Levine and his bandmates, who lay down on the floor with Christopher

We SUCK in Colder Weather

(YouTube link)

The Holderness Family (previously at Neatorama) took the opportunity of a few snow days in North Carolina to make a parody of the song “Colder Weather” by the Zac Brown Band. This version laments how inexperienced Southern people are about ice and snow. They use table salt and brooms instead of rock salt and snow shovels. And they had enough time to become obsessed with a certain colored dress. I hope they’ve gotten used to it by now -here in Kentucky, we are expecting another three inches of snow tonight.  -via Scott Kreidler

That's My Kind of Princess!

Now isn't she a pretty, pretty princess? I've seen tons of Barbie cakes, but never a kaiju princess like this one. And who wouldn't prefer a Japanese superbabe like this one? We'd better hope she gets a nice present or else this princess might just take down the city.

There are millions of apps available for your digital umbilical cord, er, I mean phone. Some of them push the envelope into the ozone, but people use them anyway. Or do they? maybe they just download them for laughs. Even if I had a smart phone, I would find all these simple to do without. Mike Rugnetta guest-hosts the mental_floss List Show this week.

Hulk, Possibly the Largest Pit Bull Alive, is a Big Softie

This is Hulk, a 173-pound pitbull. His owner Marlon Grannon breeds and trains protection and police dogs at Dark Dynasty K9 in New Hampshire, but he has made Hulk his family pet. While he's not an official record holder, Hulk may be the largest of his kind — he's certainly a massive example of the breed.

In spite of his formidable appearance, Grannon says Hulk is a cuddly sweetheart with all of his family members. He also likes to sing! See the videos below for an example of Hulk's musical stylings, and a profile of him by Barcroft TV. Keep up with Hulk's happenings on Facebook and Instagram, and see a number of adorable photographs of him here.

Lioness Opens Car Door at Drive-Through Safari Park

YouTube user Joshua Sutherland said his sisters Kaylene and Cindy were visiting their parents who are missionaries in South Africa when a lioness at a drive-through safari park opened the family's car door with her teeth. Hopefully that will teach them to keep the doors locked!

Miss Cellania posted about another 2009 incident at a Johannesburg, South Africa drive-through safari park in which a lion did the same thing. I wonder if it was the same park, and that's the way the pride gets their jollies? Via Tastefully Offensive

Adventure Time Jewelry Wraps Around Your Neck

Etsy seller lyl393 makes clever use of the elongated characters on Adventure Time by showing them stretched as necklaces. The shapeshifting Jake is, of course, the most obvious choice. But the form also works very well with her depictions of Lady Rainicorn, Fiona and Cake, and Lord Monochromicorn.

This romantic piece that shows Jake and Lady Rainicorn together is especially charming.

Men Pee on Beehive, Bees React

A bus in Quang Ngai province, Vietnam, pulled over on the side of the road to allow the men to relieve themselves. There was a beehive nearby, and one man thought it would be funny to urinate on the beehive. He convinced several other men to do the same, all at the same time. The bees were not happy, and swarmed out of the hive to sting the first body parts they came to. They also swarmed onto the bus and attacked other riders. Medics attended to 22 people who had been stung on their faces, hands, and penises. One person was taken to a hospital with swelling and a high fever. No word on whether that was the instigator. -via Uproxx
