An Animated Crime Movie Starring Snow White And The Seven Dwarves

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of Disney's most famous features, and even though the fairy tale has been adapted a million times our mind always goes back to the Disney version whenever Snow White is mentioned.

That lasting Disney influence isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially in animation, and when a Snow White adaptation manages to show us something new while giving a nod to Disney you know it's something special. (NSFW due to language)

The Seven Red Hoods - Taupes from Eddy on Vimeo.

The Seven Red Hoods was created by Léo Verrier, with production by Eddy and ARTE France and a bunch of wonderful models created by Martine Lafont, which really add to the unique look of the film.

How All 50 State Capitals Got Their Names

It doesn’t matter so much that the 50 cities on this list are state capitals, because any list of town name origins contains some interesting stories. However, using state capitals gives every American a connection to at least one of them. I never knew the story, but I had assumed, I guess, that the capital of Kentucky has some connection to Frankfurt, Germany. Wrong.

Historians aren’t certain where Frankfort got its name, but most people believe the name memorializes an early settler named Stephen Frank, who was killed by Native Americans near a river crossing. The crossing came to be known as Frank’s Ford, later shortened to Frankfort. Frankfort is located in similarly named Franklin County, named for Benjamin Franklin.

But they get more interesting. Check out Minnesota’s capital.

St. Paul didn’t receive its elegant sounding moniker until 1849. Before that, it was called Pig’s Eye, after a local tavern owner named Pierre “Pig’s Eye” Parrant. Parrant was an unlikely inspiration for a town name: He had a bad reputation and was said to be a coarse, uncouth man whose bad eye lent his face a piggish expression. But according to legend, a customer at Parrant’s tavern gave “Pig’s Eye” as the return address on a letter he was sending, and from then on, the town was known as Pig’s Eye.

St. Paul might have been known as Pig’s Eye forever, if not for the arrival of a Catholic priest named Father Lucien Galtier, who established the chapel of St. Paul in the region in 1840. Nine years later, the Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Minnesota, presumably weighing the pros and cons of naming the town after a licentious tavern owner or a Catholic saint, officially named the settlement St. Paul.

See if your state capital has such a colorful past, at mental_floss.

These Disturbingly Realistic Masks Seem Appropriate For The 2016 Election

(Image Link)

No matter who you're voting for or what your political beliefs may be you have to agree on one thing- Hillary, Donald and (formerly) Bernie aren't the most attractive candidates who've ever run for president.

They aim to prove looks aren't everything, but when you see their heads sitting on hairier, scarier and/or sexier bodies the look IS everything- everything nightmares are made of.

(Image Link)

Artist Landon Meier of Hyperflesh made a one-off mask of Trump, Sanders and Clinton in order to prepare American citizens for the true horror of the 2016 election.

Frida Guy - Art History Is A Lie


Frida Guy by Katie Clark Art

Not all of the Mushroom Kingdom's citizens appreciate fine art, but the little Shy Guys are huge admirers of art, and their paintings and sculptures fill the halls of Bowser's castle. Unfortunately, many of their greatest works have been lost over the years thanks to those art hatin' plumber bros Mario and Luigi, aka the guys who keep storming Bowser's castle and smashing all the art. It seems Mario has no appreciation for the Shy Guys or their art, all he ever wants to do is smash stuff on the way to battling his romantic rival Bowser once again. Perhaps the Shy Guys should start painting on and making sculptures out of those blocks even Super Mario can't smash?

Change the face of art history by wearing this Frida Guy t-shirt by Katie Clark Art, it's the cute yet creepy way to show love for your favorite artist and video game series at the same time!

Nature Is All About Balance

There are some beautiful sights to behold if you can manage to detach your eyeballs from the various screens in your house and take them outside, because nature videos ain't got nothin' on nature live.

But living things who are forced to live outside want what all of us indoor dwellers have- smartphones, computers, and some lucrative tech stocks. According to this Pie Comic that's what people call "the balance of nature".

Salsa Tequila

Americans may get the impression that Europeans speak all European languages, mainly because they often learn several languages. That’s not the case, as demonstrated by Norwegian comedian Anders Nilsen. A couple of years ago, he produced a song in Spanish. Nilsen doesn’t speak Spanish, as is made clear in the song, which consists of random Spanish words, names, and phrases, relying heavily on menu items. Nilsen wanted to make the point that a song could become a hit even if the lyrics make no sense.

(YouTube link)

Salsa Tequila indeed became a hit in several northern European countries: Norway, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, and Sweden. The tune is certainly catchy, but was the song a hit because people got the joke, or in spite of it? In Spain, southern Europe, and the Americas, it’s obviously a nonsense song, but it still could have been popular.

Other versions of the song were produced by various folks in German, Dutch, Finnish, and a mishmash of Scandinavian languages. -via reddit

Heavenly Photos Taken From An Airplane Cockpit

Flying a plane seems like a nerve-wracking experience, especially when people are relying on you to fly them safely to their destination, but one of the rewards is that heavenly view pilots get to see from the cockpit.

In fact, pilots get to see such breathtaking sights it's a shame they can't snap pics the whole time they're flying the plane!

But some pilots, such as photographer and Senior First Officer Christiaan Van Heijstfind, find the time to shoot and fly, capturing the breathtaking sights only pilots get to see.

Christiaan is a self-professed lover of natural light, which is the only light available while shooting through a cockpit window, but the long exposure times often make the pilots look like ghosts.

The $21,000 Airplane Seat

Casey Neistat makes videos about his life that make the rest of us wonder why we even bother. He recently managed to get an upgrade on his Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai to New York City. First class on the flight is a $21,000 ticket, but since empty seats make no money, he was glad to help them fill the section. And show us what first class really is.

Underrated X-Men Who Are Secretly Awesome

(Image Link)

There have been so many mutants on the X-Men roster it's hard to keep track of them all, and minor league mutants like Jubilee and Shatterstar are often overshadowed by A-listers like Wolverine and Jean Grey.

But certain eras of the comic saw dozens of new members joining the X-Men, and even though these newbies were overshadowed they had to be secretly awesome to join the X-Men, right?

Shatterstar is a Liefeld creation, but don't hold that against him, because this badass from Mojoworld is not only one of the strongest fighters to ever join the X-Men- he's a trailblazer for gay characters in comics.

And speaking of blaze- Jubilee's plasmoid "fireworks" are often described as being nothing but flashes of light, but like most mutant powers she just had to learn how to control it to unleash its full potential.

Get A Tattoo, Get Free Burgers For Life

Like burgers? Live in Australia? Well, you could get free burgers for life from Cafe 51 if you get a burger tattoo. Not just any burger tattoo will work though, you have to go through an application process and if you get approved, then you have to get a life size tattoo of one of their extreme burger creations with their logo. So far only one person has actually gotten their tattoo, but the restaurant has recieved over 3,000 applications, so I guess there are quite a few Australians that are dying for a free burger every day.

10 Secrets of the White House Calligraphers

In 2013, pundits criticized the Obama administration for spending nearly $280,000 a year on three White House calligraphers. Here’s what you need to know about every art major’s dream job.

1. They’re a White House staple.

Calligraphers have worked at the White House since John Adams started sending guests fancy dinner invites back in 1801.

2. They design everything!

Proclamations, citations, military commissions, special announcements, menus, place cards, invitations, official greetings, and even signs for the White House vegetable garden. One day, a calligrapher might inscribe the name of the Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. The next, they might pen a menu for a visiting monarch.

How an L.A. Printer Kept the Art of the Album Cover Alive

As music media became digital in the ‘80s with CDs, and later on with MP3s and now streaming, many audiophiles missed the rich analog sound of vinyl albums. Along the same route, the smaller media lost the visual art of the album jacket. There was less room for art, and forget liner notes. We missed those, too. That’s why there has been a resurgence on the old-fashioned vinyl record album in the last few years. And the  Stoughton Printing Company is ready to print new album covers, just as they have since 1964. Founded by Jack Stoughton, Sr. the company carries on in the 21st century under the direction of Clay Stoughton and his brother Jack Stoughton, Jr., who tells us about the early days of the business.  

“The Old Style jackets—that’s our trademarked name—can be printed on a variety of papers, substrates of any sort, really.” Jack Jr. says. “It can be book cloth, paper, foil, lots of different things, which gives you the ability to create many types of looks. We have highly specialized machines that are strictly purposed to make the Old Style jackets, be it an Old Style single, an Old Style gatefold, a gatefold single, you name it.”

If there’s a secret sauce to Stoughton, one of the ingredients is certainly its people, many of whom have been with the company for a long time, which means the institutional memory at Stoughton runs deep. “Some of our employees have been with us for decades,” Jack Jr. says. “They’ve seen it all.” Just as important is the fact that for every Led Zeppelin or Jack White, there have been countless other musicians of lesser acclaim who have turned to Stoughton to print their album art and design the packaging encasing their vinyl.

“When we started out,” Jack Jr. says, “we appealed to independent labels and artists. That was our niche. We had one customer, way back when, who sold his car to help pay for his record pressing. We had printed his jackets, so he came out here on the bus from Hollywood to City of Industry, which was about 25 miles eastbound. He probably made five or six bus transfers to get here. All he wanted was one box of 100 jackets, which he was going to take to the record-pressing plant so they could stuff them with his records, which he wanted to sell at a show that night. The jackets were ready, so we drove him and the jackets to the record-pressing plant, waited for them to get stuffed, and then took him home. He called us the following Monday to say he had been able to sell around 240 records that night, which effectively paid for his entire project. I couldn’t tell you that young man’s name today, and I don’t even remember if he went on to have any hits. But that was the way my dad treated everybody. In part, it was because you never knew who was going to be the next million-seller, but it was also to honor the dreams independent artists brought to us.”

Stoughton Printing Company is such a historic part of the record industry that the International Printing Museum is readying an exhibition called “The Music of the Presses: The Stoughton Printing Company Vinyl Jacket Collection” to open October first. Read about the history and the art of record jacket printing at Collectors Weekly.

The People Who Slowly Turn to Bone

Stone Man Syndrome is a very rare condition in which a person’s tissues turn to bone. Ratherm when the body tries to repair anything, it uses bone tissue, even when that's not appropriate. The disease so rare that even identifying it is difficult, much less getting funding for research into it. Some of the images in this video may be disturbing for sensitive souls.

Nyarlathotep - Can I Play With Crawling Chaos?


Nyarlathotep by Azhmodai

You know what they say- the harder a god's name is to pronounce the more messed up and wicked the god, which is why Nyarlathotep has such a fearsome reputation.

But believe me- compared to Great Old Ones like Cthulhu, or that oozing mass of carnivorous goo Shub-Niggurath, the Crawling Chaos isn't such a bad being after all!

Wear your love of the creatures Lovecraft created on your chest with this Nyarlathotep t-shirt by Azhmodai, it's one tasty design that's sure to drive your fellow H.P. fans crazy with delight!

Guys Taste Test A $4 Burger And A $777 Burger To See How They Measure Up

Foodies are paying a fortune these days for basic burgers they believe to be "gourmet" because they're made with upscale ingredients that make them worth the inflated price.

But just because your $777 burger has lobster, foie gras and 100-year-old balsamic vinegar on it and comes with a bottle of Dom Perignon doesn't make it much better than an $18 burger.

(YouTube Link)

Keith and Steven from BuzzFeed Video taste tested a $4 burger from The Habit Burger Grill, an $18 burger from Gordon Ramsay's BURGR, and the ridiculously decadent $777 burger from Burger Brasserie, which they both agreed was an "experience" to eat.

Surprisingly, the average price for a Burger Brasserie's burger is about $15, but seeing as how it's located in the Paris Las Vegas Hotel they're probably hoping high rollers will drop the dough just for the bragging rights.

Priorities

This is how I operate when I’ve got a feature article deadline looming. The more I think about it, the more I remember the email, the dishes, the garbage, the bill that needs to be paid, and the nap I really need. Comic artist Sarah Andersen knows she’s not the only one.

Meet The World's Tallest Teenager

Some kids don't get their growth spurts until high school, and a rare few don't have a growth spurt until college, but Broc Brown, the world's tallest teenager, was practically born taller than his peers.

In kindergarten he was 5'2", he hit the six foot mark before he officially got his "growth spurt", and at age 19 he is currently 7'8" tall...and still growing.

Broc has a genetic disorder called Sotos Syndrome, also known as cerebral gigantism, which causes "excessive physical growth" and may cause health issues such as hormonal imbalance, scoliosis and heart and kidney problems.

But despite the chronic pain Broc feels he manages to keep a smile on his face and live like a normal teen, and doctors say Broc will probably live a long and healthy life despite his disorder.

Here's hoping all your dreams come true, Broc!

Animated Indiana Jones Fan Film

Animator and lifelong Indiana Jones fan Patrick Schoenmaker produced an opening sequence for an Indiana Jones TV series. The only problem is that there is no animated Indiana Jones TV series. At least not yet.

(YouTube link)

Schoenmaker (previously at Neatorama) did some artwork for Lucasfilm to promote Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This animated sequence has been a side project of his ever since, and it’s finally been unveiled. He talked to Inverse about it.

My main idea was not to make a trailer that would have just been an excuse to take some random scenes and edit them together to look cool. I wanted a story, but I didn’t have the time to make it a full short, so instead, I came up with something like the intro to the Batman animated series.

It boiled down the feel and essence of any Batman story into a one-minute intro. It’s a great short film by itself because it makes you hungry for the episode, so I took that approach.

Well, there he’s nailed the biggest flaw in the video: it’s too short. If Lucasfilm would just hire him, he could work on Indiana Jones full-time. -via Den of Geek

Debunking the Myth of the ‘Real’ Robinson Crusoe

Daniel Defoe published his book Robinson Crusoe in 1719, at a time when stories of shipwrecks, pirates, and castaways were hot, and there were plenty of narratives available. His book survived better than other accounts because it was particularly well-written and gripped the public’s imagination. And it was fiction, so therefore not constrained by actual events. After Defoe’s death, scholars pointed to the true story of pirate Alexander Selkirk as the main inspiration for Robinson Crusoe. But that’s not the whole story. According to Auburn University professor Paula Backscheider, there were other influences that can be traced directly to Defoe.

Take Robert Knox, for example. After his shipwreck on Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, he was held captive for 20 years (closer to the amount of time that Crusoe spent on an island).

“He started his own little corn business,” Backscheider says. “He even made little wool caps, and Defoe knew him personally.” This and other tales suggest that there were many people who influenced Defoe.

Backscheider says Defoe scholars are tired of the assumption that Selkirk’s story was the inspiration for Crusoe, rather than just one of many survival narratives that Defoe knew about. When people bring it up to them, “we just giggle,” she says.   

National Geographic explains several of the ways the tale of Robinson Crusoe differed from that of of Alexander Selkirk, and more about the other stories that were just as influential.

Photo Series Reveals How Our Facial Expressions Change When We Get Undressed

Societal standards state we must wear clothing when we're out in public, and this standard of decency has made some feel self conscious about their naked bodies, or at least when they're naked around other people.

This nudity-related self-consciousness causes people to make certain facial expressions whenever they're naked around an unfamiliar person, expressions that sometimes include a nervous grin.

Photographer Dylan Hamm reveals people's facial expressions before and after undressing in his series "Naked Faces", a side-by-side portrait series that challenges viewers to guess which one's the nudie pic.

The World's Strongest Cup of Coffee

Some people can't wake up without a cup of coffee and for some people, a whole pot of coffee is neccessary. If you just can't get enough caffeine, you might want to head to The Viscous Cafe in Australia, where you can find the world's strongest cup of coffee. Just one mug of this strong brew is the equivalent of 80 regular cups of coffee. That means each cup contains 5 grams of caffeine, which considering that 18 is fatal for even a healthy adult means that just three cups would put you dangerously close to death.

An Essay on the Greatness of Gilligan's Island

Neatorama presents a guest post from actor, comedian, and voiceover artist Eddie Deezen. Visit Eddie at his website or at Facebook.

 Gilligan's Island, which premiered on CBS on September 26, 1964, is quite possibly the most ridiculed television show of all-time. Interestingly and ironically, with the possible exception of I Love Lucy, it is also possibly the most well-known and beloved. According to Dawn Wells, it is by now the single most watched TV show in history, including I Love Lucy.

As I always clearly state: what makes people laugh is subjective- like taste in women, cars and colors, And while Gilligan's Island will cause only eye rolls and channel-changing from many of my fellow TV watchers, I myself have always found the show to be hysterically funny.

True, the teaming of Bob Denver (Gilligan) and Alan Hale (the Skipper) as Gilligan and the Skipper, so obviously based on Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, never equaled Stan and Ollie. But who did? To me, both the verbal and physical humor of the show was very funny and often clever. (Like almost any great TV series, the writing did get weaker towards the end of the show's run.)

Like all great art, in my humble opinion, Gilligan's Island reflected and mirrored life.

Yzrey And Chewy Smash - The Unlikeliest Mashup Of Them All


Yzrey and Chewy Smash by Charamath

The where and how and why isn't important, but somewhere, somehow and for some reason Chewie the Wookiee and Yzma the sorceress wound up traveling across the galaxy together in search of new grooves. It seems Yzma felt bad about what she'd put old Kuzco through and was looking to make a change, and when she stared into the furry face of that big galoot Chewbacca she knew he'd make the perfect partner for redemption. But where would she start? The answer came to her one day when they were entertaining a group of slave children on a planet ravaged by war and subjugated by the Empire- Yzma would become a star, like one of those Jedis only cooler. So she changed her name to Yzrey and swore to avenge their planet by crushing that shiny helmeted jerk Kylo and restoring order to the people. Chewie wasn't sure about overthrowing Imperial control, but he really liked the bit about crushing and smashing so he went along for the ride...

Give your geeky wardrobe a strange new groove with this Yzrey and Chewy Smash t-shirt by Charamath, it's the perfect attire for both emperors and smugglers alike!

The Most Powerful Superheroes Who Refuse To Use Their Full Power

Readers often wonder why characters who are nigh invulnerable, like Superman, Zatanna or Spider-Man, would allow themselves to be whomped on rather than unleash their full power.

This question is generally answered with an explanation involving ethics, morality or "because the world/galaxy depends on it", but this kind of explanation only placates readers for a little while.

So why won't these superheroes unleash their full power?

Superman tries to refrain from killing at all costs, and despite all the destruction we've seen in the comics he tries to keep collateral damage to a minimum too, so it makes sense for him to hold back.

Zatanna's powers were passed down from her father, so the only thing holding her back from unleashing the ultimate power within her is her own self-confidence, which can be a hard barrier to break through.

Spidey certainly doesn't lack self-confidence, so what's his excuse for holding back?

He's opposed to killing too, but he also just holds back to give the bad guys a chance in battle, which Doctor Octopus discovered when he swapped bodies with Peter Parker during the "Superior Spider-Man" storyline. Cocky, ain't he?!

70 Bizarre Facts about Historical Figures

(YouTube link)

Biography has always been my favorite kind of literature, because real lives can be infinitely more interesting than fiction. You can always find something odd and interesting about any person, whether they are famous or not. It’s even more interesting when those facts are in complete opposition to what you think you know about that famous person. John Green has a whole slew of such weird tidbits about people you know from history, in this week’s episode of the mental_floss List Show.
