Artist Gives Grandma's Ceramic Figurines A Black Metal Makeover

Thrift store shoppers come across ceramic figurines all the time, figurines which probably remind them of their grandma’s house, but one savvy shopper saw those tchotchkes as an opportunity to make some seriously cool art.

Portland based artist Tom LaBonty started purchasing those ceramic thrift store treasures and giving them ghastly makeovers, and the results are spook-tacular! 

They no longer look like something that would fit in at grandma’s house, unless your grandma has a dungeon in her basement, but their new life as harbingers of doom somehow makes them look even more precious.

Just look at how cute this little girl is carrying around a scythe that's twice her size!

Forecast: Dog Takes Over Weather Report, Variable Conditions Expected

YouTube Link

This hilarious footage shows a Canadian weather report that goes to the dogs when Edmonton weatherman Mike Sobel attempts to give the forecast while holding Humane Society visitor Ripple on a leash. Ripple, a mastiff mix only wanting to play, plays too powerfully for the television personality to handle while explaining weather conditions and gesturing at the screen. The forecast might indicate "calm conditions," yet in the studio it's a different story! Make sure to watch at around 1:20, when things really start to get wild. -Via Viral Viral Videos

New Unicycle Design Promises to Make One-Wheeled Travel Easier

This is a unicycle? But where's the flame throwing bagpipes? As counter-intuitive as it may seen, Shane Chen's Lunicycle is a highly-functional unicycle.

Besides the conspicious absence of a set of flame throwing bagpipes, Chen's stripped-down design also lacks a seat. What it does have leg supports which permit the rider to squeeze his/her legs against the fame. This provides additional stability.

Spicing Up Supreme Court Coverage

(YouTube link)

News from the Supreme Court is extremely important, but since cameras are not allowed during hearings, the audio-only TV coverage is far from interesting. John Oliver has a wonderful idea to get people to watch SC news stories: use footage of dogs! To that end, his production team made an entire reel of “stock footage” which can be used to illustrate any sound bite from Supreme Court hearings. Each individual Justice is included, as well as lawyers and other court employees. 

(YouTube link)

And in case you like that idea, here is the entire reel, which can be excerpted as necessary. There is no soundtrack, but once you start watching, you won’t want to stop. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

24 Outrageous Stories about Prince



Tastes in music are subjective. One person's musical trash is another's treasure. Some much prefer one or two genres over any others. Some like music across nearly all genres. To some music lovers, Prince Rogers Nelson, known as Prince, is a musical genius. When his music must be fit into a category, such as in a music store, Prince is often labeled R&B. But his musical style is actually a blend of many genres and influences, including pop, rock, jazz, rap, funk, new wave and even gospel. 

This year is the 30th anniversary of his album Purple Rain. Particularly after that 1984 release, Prince has been considered by those in the industry as a musical force with which to be reckoned. The recording is often listed among the best music albums in history.

But as the saying goes, there's a fine line between genius and madness. "Madness," in that context, ranges from simple eccentricities to severe phobias and behaviors that few could understand. Strange stories abound about Prince, as over the years, he's established himself as one odd, purple duck. Some dismiss him as a jerk. Others give him a wide berth, accepting his quirks.

One story related by his ex-wife Mayte Garcia involved Prince installing a beauty salon in their extravagant, Spanish-style home. Yet Garcia was instructed by her husband not to use this in-home service. "I always went out if I needed my hair done," she said. "The salon wasn't for me, it was for my husband. Prince needed his space."

Read 23 other outrageous Prince stories here. See Prince perform live on the November 1 episode of Saturday Night Live, in which he will be the musical guest to host Chris Rock.

The Horror Movie House Quiz

When you watch a horror film, you can be excused for not remembering the details, like the architecture. But maybe you’ve seen these movies more than once, or maybe even recently. Can you identify the houses, haunted or not, from Hollywood’s biggest horror movies? The first one in the Buzzfeed quiz is a gimme, especially if you’ve followed Neatorama for a few years. The rest, well, you’re on your own. I scored eight out of ten, which is more of the movies than I’d actually seen, because I’m a good guesser.

R.V. Invaders - Why Walk With The Dead When You Can Ride In Style?


R.V. Invaders by Gordon Brebner Designs

They used the Winnebago as their mobile safe zone, a travelling compound that would shelter them from the apocalyptic storm and act as a barrier between the living and the undead. When things got extra hairy, with too many of the walking dead for the Chieftain to simply drive over, Dale would take to the roof with his rifle and pop off some head shots until the coast was clear. Just having the R.V. around made Dale feel a little safer, and somehow it felt like home in a world where the living had to roam like nomads...

Add some apocalyptic pixel art to your wardrobe with this R.V. Invaders t-shirt by Gordon Brebner Designs, and get your geeky game on!

Whodunit: An Attack of Gas

The following is a Whodunit by Hy ConradThese mysteries are from The Little Giant® Book of Whodunits by Hy Conrad and Matt LaFleur. Can you solve the mystery before you read the solution?

(Image credit: Flickr user Ann Fisher)

The island of Canary Rock had no police force and none was really needed—not until the fateful morning when Gerald Espy was found dead in his bed. The millionaire had been laid up with a broken leg, and although the local doctor was adept at setting bones, he was not well versed in murder. It wasn't until he saw the dead cat curled up in a corner that he even suspected foul play.

"Poison gas," the inspector guessed when he arrived. An empty glass container on the table was the primary evidence. "Pour one chemical on another." He pointed to the dead flies on the windowsill at the east end of the room. "In less than a minute everything in the room would be dead."

The body had been discovered by Espy's son, Melvin. "I was out with some friends on my boat. I dropped them off at about midnight, then motored back to Canary Rock. There were no lights on at the house, but every now and then the moon would peek through. I figured Dad was asleep. So I locked up the house and went straight to bed. This morning, I went to check up. He was dead."

Anonymous Hero Carries Man out of Burning House, Then Disappears

This is Dodgers Fan Man, a hero whose identity remains a secret. He is known only for his L.A. Dodgers ballcap and for, more importantly, carrying an elderly man out of a burning house.


(Video Link)

On Saturday, a duplex in Fresno, California caught on fire. Beth Lederach was driving in the area when she noticed it. She parked and recorded the video above. The rescue occurs at the 1:28 mark. There are shouts of alarm when the people in the area realize that an elderly and infirm man is still inside the building. But, suddenly, Dodgers Fan Man appears, carrying the old man over his shoulder! He put the man down, then disappeared. Carmen George writes for The Fresno Bee:

“I couldn’t believe it,” Lederach said. “I was so relieved, I just wanted to cry.”

The rescued man — whose identity also was not released — was transported to a hospital for smoke inhalation, said Kris Townsend, a spokesman for the Fresno Fire Department.

The rescuer appeared to have "come out of nowhere,” Lederach said. “He just calmly walked right in there and then came walking right back out with this guy.”

Lederach said the rescued man “was visibly shaken and wiping his brow; very sweaty.”

Al Crego Animates Street Art

Original street art and photo by Artestenciva. Animated GIF By A. L. Crego.

Laughing Squid put together a list here of some street art that artist A.L Credo ended up animating, and it is stellar. While the works themselves are remarkable, seeing just a dab of animation added to them seems to breathe even more life into the already staggering work. 

They are small touches in every piece, but just enough to breathe a little life into them all.

The Great Diamond Hoax of 1872

The following is an article from Uncle John's Curiously Compelling Bathroom Reader

(Image credit:  Flickr user  kawaiikiri)

 Most stories have the moral at the end. But we’ll put it right up front: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

NIGHT DEPOSIT

One evening in February 1871, George Roberts, a prominent San Francisco businessman, was working in his office when two men came to his door. One of them, Philip Arnold, had once worked for Roberts; the other was named John Slack. Arnold produced a small leather bag and explained that it contained something very valuable; as soon as the Bank of California opened in the morning, he was going to have them lock it in the vault for safekeeping.

Arnold and Slack made a show of not wanting to reveal what was in the bag, but eventually told Roberts that it contained “rough diamonds” they’d found while prospecting on a mesa somewhere in the West. They wouldn’t say where the mesa was, but they did say it was the richest mineral deposit they’d ever seen in their lives: The site was rich not only in diamonds, but also in sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and other precious stones.

The story sounded too good to be true, but when Arnold dumped the contents of the bag onto Robert’s desk, out spilled dozens of uncut diamonds and other gems.

PAY DIRT



If someone were to make such a claim today, they’d probably get laughed out of the room. But things were different in 1871. Only 20 years had passed since the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in California spiked the greatest gold rush in American history. Since then other huge gold deposits had been discovered in Colorado, as well as in Australia and New Zealand. A giant vein of silver had been found in the famous Comstock Lode in Nevada in 1859, and diamonds had been discovered in South Africa in 1867- just four years earlier. Gems and precious metals might be anywhere, lying just below the earth’s surface, waiting to be discovered. People who’d missed out on the earlier bonanzas were hungry for word of new discoveries, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869 opened up the West and create the expectation that more valuable strikes were just around the corner. When Arnold and Slack rolled into town with their tale of gems on a mesa and a bag of precious stones to back it up, people were ready to believe them.

OPEN SECRET

The next morning the two men went to the Bank of California and deposited their bag in the bank’s vault. They made another big show of not wanting anyone to know what was in the bag, and again they let some of the bank employees have a peek. Soon everyone in the bank knew what was in it, including the president and founder, William Ralston. He had made a fortune off the Comstock Lode, and had his eye out for the next big find. Ralston didn’t keep the men’s secret, and neither did George Roberts: Soon all of San Francisco, the city built by the Gold Rush of 1849, was buzzing with the tale of the two miners and their discovery.

Deep Fried Candy Corn

Amy of the wonderful food blog Oh, Bite It! is committed to proving that anything can--and therefore should--be deep fried. We've previously seen her deep fry Twinkie spring rolls, tequila shots, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. More recently, she took on candy corn, a traditional Halloween candy.

The process was straightforward. Amy made circles of canned crescent roll dough, then wrapped them around a few kernels of candy corn. Then she deep fried the dough balls and dusted them with powdered sugar.

10 True Stories of Survival Cannibalism

The idea of eating human flesh is abhorrent to most folks, but the truth is people, like animals, will eat anything when the alternative is dying of starvation. And most of us understand the vast difference between eating available corpses and murder. However, in the ten stories of people who survived starvation through cannibalism, there are a few that involved murder, although the details are sketchy. Self defense? That's what one claimed. In other cases, it was "either him or me," or helping along those who were about to die sooner or later. Read ten tales of desperation that led to cannibalism at How Stuff Works.

What If Christopher Nolan Directed WAll-E?

WALL-E was an amazing film. Christopher Nolan is an amazing director. So let's play around for a second and hypothesize how utterly brilliant it would be if Nolan had gotten the chance to direct WALL-E? Though I am not sure that movie could get much better, you do know a couple things right off the bat if you know the director's work. It would be a dark and gritty film, the score would be so powerful you would feel like you couldn't breathe while watching it, and it would have an ending that left you in awe (or a tad bit confused).

So really, Christopher Nolan should stick to what he does best (Interstellar looks unreal), as should Pixar. This still looks like it would be an amazing film, though, and is a fun way to spend two minutes.

What the World Eats

National Geographic brings us an interactive data visualization project that breaks down world food consumption. As you can see, globally, we consume more grains than anything. The staff of life, you know. At the site, you can mouseover the graph and break these categories down further: rice beats out wheat, just barely, with maize (corn) a distant third. But the United States’ graph is quite different, with sugar and fat taking up 37% of our diet! There are also plenty of graphs on meat consumption, which has grown considerably per capita over the past few decades. Not so much in the U.S., as we always ate more meat than other countries, and not so much in India, where meat eating is still relatively rare. There are plenty of graphs to explore and compare at NatGeo.

Couch Turns into a Pillow Fort in Just Seconds

The design studio Goula Figuera, which consists of Pablo Figuera and Álvaro Goula, developed this clever couch design called Orwell. It's a couch for sitting, a bed for napping, and a pillow fort for . . . well, pillow forts are self-evidently useful. 

The name is a reference to George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In the horrifying dystopia in which that novel is set, there is no privacy anywhere. There's a 2-way telescreen in every home which broadcasts propaganda and surveils every person.

Hopefully you don't live in such a nightmarish society. But a bit of privacy can be nice. When you need to retreat from the world, slide into the couch and lower the draperies.
