Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone As An R-Rated Movie

The Harry Potter series is meant to appeal to young adults, introducing teen and preteen readers to the fantasy genre while keeping the story YA friendly, but sometimes real life simply isn’t suitable for a general audience.

The world is generally an R-rated place, and to truly capture teens in an unedited format you’ve gotta go for the R.

(YouTube Link)

The Fine Brothers have begun releasing a series of animated shorts that show what our favorite G and PG-rated movies would look like as R-rated films, starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Despite the title, and aside from a little cartoon blood, it's SFW!

How Pixar Animators Handled The Problem Of McQueen Having No Hands

The idea for Pixar’s franchise Cars makes total sense now, but when the concept was first presented to the animators they weren’t sure what to make of the whole talking car thing.

The first problem- how does a car pick stuff up when their only appendage is an antenna?

(YouTube Link)

This amusing animated short reveals how animator Rob Gibbs and the rest of the Pixar creative crew developed an anthropomorphic car character into the McQueen we know and love today.

25 GIFs That Prove How Strange Japanese TV Can Be

 photo WXxU31S_zpsq8pdyha6.gif

Saying Japan is strange nowadays is like saying rain is wet or the sun is warm, because everybody knows Japan loves the bizarre. But how do we further define that particularly Japanese style of strange?

While that strangeness may be hard to quantify this collection of creepy-crazy-WTF inducing GIFs put together by Dorkly is definitely a step in the right direction.

Next time someone expresses doubt that Japan is “as strange as they say” you can show them a GIF of a guy floating around shooting bananas out of his nostrils.

Well played, Japan! I’ll never look at a banana the same way again!

Don't Cry Over Spilled Coffee, Use It To Draw Monsters!

Sometimes all you need to create a great piece of art is a jumping off point, some sort of inspiration to get those creative wheels turning.

Many artists use reference photos for this exact reason, or come up with thumbnail sketches before they get down to work, but artist and copywriter Stefan just lets the coffee flow and sees where his artistic mind goes.

Stefan has discovered a love of drawing coffee-monsters, little impromptu illustrations that all start with spilled coffee, and now he can’t stop drawing and creating stories for the little stains.

Stefan's full blown art and caffeine addiction has led to over 480 coffee-monsters being born so far, and Stefan will continue to bring those java stains to life, and tell their story, as long as it makes him happy.

Fans Share Their Most Embarrassing Moments When Meeting A Celebrity

Meeting a celebrity face-to-face is a really big deal for some people, and while I’m more of the say “Hey, how ya doin?” and keep on walking kinda guy I say to each their own when it comes to fandom.

If you want to see a famous face and freak out that’s your prerogative, and celebs should appreciate the kudos even if they come with hysterical tears.

But some people simply cannot hold it together when they see a celeb, and their embarrassing moments in fandom history become the stuff of internet legend.

BuzzFeed has put together a colorful collection of 21 Of The Most Embarrassing Things People Have Done When Meeting Celebrities, which is full of cringe worthy moments like this fan's encounter with the underside of Michael Bublé's car:

3 Librarians on Star Trek

What's all this doomsaying about libraries becoming obsolete? We know that libraries will thrive in the future because they're present in 23rd Century. In fact, Star Trek shows at least 3 librarians at work in the distant future.

In the original series episode "All Our Yesterdays," Kirk, Spock, and McCoy beam down to a seemingly vacant planet orbiting a star about to go nova. They discover that they are in a library. Despite the desperate circumstances, the librarian, who introduces himself as Mr. Atoz, is ready to help them.

Lifelong character actor Ian Wolfe, who plays Mr. Atoz, does a remarkably good job of carrying out a reference interview under conditions of extreme stress. He is friendly, welcoming, an advocate for the utility of libraries, and maintains the confidentiality of his patrons.

Batman vs. Joker in Stop-motion

It’s an action movie starring action figures! The fists and gadgets fly as Batman battles the Joker, and it gets more intense as they both bring out reinforcements. It eventually goes to old-school punching when they all run out of ammunition, but that's no less intense.

Awesome Images Of Pop Culture Icons Created Using Stock Photos

Photoshopped art pieces generally fall into two different categories- addition and subtraction. Either something is added to the original image or subtracted from it, which generally makes spotting a Photoshopped image quite easy.

But the digital artworks created by Jeff Chapman aren’t so easy to categorize, and the way Jeff creates these amazing looking images of iconic characters from pop culture is quite complicated.

Jeff uses various pieces from stock photographs, with some additional digital painting and visual effects, to create highly detailed images of strong and sexy pop culture superstars. Here's a glimpse into the making of this striking portrait of Elsa from Frozen:

Horror Villains Who Aren't As Bad As They Seem

Most horror movie villains epitomize evil, becoming the living embodiment of hatred, bloodlust, vengeance, anger or sheer psychopathia, but believe it or not there are some villains who simply don’t deserve all the hate.

These misunderstood monsters are simply acting on instinct, following their primal urges to devour primates who get in their way, or they’re simply searching for some existential thrills in their painful afterlife.

Cracked has put together a philosophically (and biologically) compelling article about 5 Horror Villains Who Aren't As Bad As They Seem, which may make you rethink your position on what makes a horror villain tick.

15 Albums That Cost Way Too Much Money To Make

Cost may not seem like a key factor in the recording of an album, as many artists are willing to show up and play for free if it means having an album recorded, but then the needless markups and inflated egos start jacking up the price.

Sadly, these costs often go to the recording staff, and the rental of the recording studio itself, and the artists see very little of the money used to record an album.

However, in the case of recording The Beach Boys album Smile, the star (Brian Wilson) was almost wholly responsible for the cost, which included:

an Arabian-style tent built in his house for the consumption of sandwiches, weed, and LSD, which ran $30,000 (about $220,000 now with inflation factored in). The placement of his piano in a sandbox filled with eight tons of premium beach sand could not have been cheap either. The economics behind "Good Vibrations," the song produced first and placed last on the track listing, was made public, approaching $75,000 ($550,000 today), including use of the Electro-Theremin itself (responsible for $15,000).

Ten Out Of This World TV Shows From The 1980s

Sci-fi TV shows are super fun to watch, with strange science theories and wondrous otherworldly technology that make the whole storyline totally mind blowing. But do you know what really makes a sci-fi show out of this world? Aliens, that's what!

Here are ten classic 80s TV shows that feature aliens, or alien technology, as a main part of the plot:

1. The Greatest American Hero (1981-1983)-

(Image Link)

Mild mannered teacher Ralph Hinkley is given the opportunity of a lifetime when a group of aliens bestow a supersuit upon him, giving him a bunch of super powers he must learn to control before he can become a true hero.

(YouTube Link)

2. The Great Space Coaster (1981-1986)-

(Image Link)

The Great Space Coaster took children's television to an asteroid called Coasterville on the outer edge of the galaxy, and introduced them to all kinds of fun creatures like newscaster Gary Gnu, Edison the alien elephant thing and the space clown Baxter.

Nic Cage Stars In Game Of Thrones

Nicolas Cage is sort of like an everyman in Hollywood, except that every man he plays in a movie seems to be out of their minds!

That wild card personality is what we like about Nic Cage, and why we continue to tune in to see his latest performance even though most of his newer movies are virtually unwatchable.

The Game Of Thrones world is going through a major reconstruction after the season 5 finale, so maybe it’s time to bring Nic on board and revitalize the show with his signature smile and singular acting style.

Redditor CarlosDanger100 shows us what an all Nic Cage Game Of Thrones would look like, and I think I like it better already! -Via Relevant

USA Challenges Japan to a Giant Robot Duel

Some robotics companies build robots for scientific and technical research. Others build them for specific purposes, like factory tasks. MegaBots, Inc. builds them for bragging rights. What do you need a giant robot for? To fight other giant robots! Duh, don’t you ever watch movies or read comic books?

(YouTube link)

Anyway, world reputation is on the line. Megabots has a giant robot called the Mark 2. Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Japan has the giant robot Kuratas. If the challenge is answered, we may see both of them destroy each other in about a year. Read more about the giant robots at Jalopnik. -via Viral Viral Videos

Butcher Billy Bullies Banksy

Butcher Billy is a Brazilian artist with a talent for mashing up famous figures from the world of pop culture, from comic book characters to cartoon superstars to famous musicians.

Billy's boldly derivative works are irreverent, silly and soft edged yet oh so hip, so it's only natural that his artistic journey into parody paradise has led him to the works of Banksy.

Butcher Billy has collected some clever cartoon parody art between the covers of a coloring book called Butcher Billy Bullies Banksy, and boy did that street art ever need a cartoon makeover!

Here's hoping this coloring book will actually be released in stores someday, but for now we can only dream of coloring between those mighty appealing cartoon contour lines...

Practical Redesigns For Female Superhero Costumes

Female superhero costumes are at the center of a huge debate that is mostly being debated by people who don’t even read comics yet like to opine about them for some strange reason.

That being said, the debate rages on for some reason, and even though the comic book industry is unlikely to make any major changes to their main characters’ wardrobes there are plenty of people with good ideas about what a redesign should look like.

One of those forward thinking artists goes by the name of Ingvard The Terrible, and he has some good ideas for making the suits worn by our favorite female superfolks more practical.

Of course, the redesigns make them all look very similar, like supporting characters in a sci-fi movie, but hey- at least they're all covered up now!

Quantifying Our Emotions After Watching A Disney-Pixar Movie

Pixar’s latest film Inside Out is leaving audiences with all kinds of feelings they’ve never felt before, and thanks to the colorful animated feature those new feelings now have a funny face.

The film is all about emotions, so it’s only natural to feel strongly about it one way or the other, but how do we quantify how all Disney-Pixar movies make us feel so other people will understand?

Why, you create an illustrated graph, of course! And that's just what the fine folks at Oh My Disney! did, using the emotion characters from Inside Out to illustrate the many different feels felt after watching a Pixar flick.

So now when your friends and family ask you what you thought of Inside Out  or any other Pixar movie you can show them one of these charts while you choke back the tears...

Terminator Timelines

The Terminator franchise has already given us four movies over 30 years with one story, but it’s a confusing one. The new film, Terminator: Genysis opens today, but before you see it, you might want to have a refresher course on the chronology of the other films. All time travel movies tend to be confusing, but with Terminator, each film alters the timelines of those that came before -and the new movie messes with that timeline even more. Direct TV gives us an interactive timeline for The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator Salvation, plus an alternative timeline and an overview of the entire saga. -via The A.V.

A Remake of Jurassic Park Made By 2 Kids Back In 1993

When the first Jurassic Park film premiered in 1993 audiences were blown away by the megasaurus-sized action taking place on the screen, but nobody got into the first flick quite like the kiddos.

90s kids had their tiny worlds rocked by the dinosaur based destruction they saw on the big screen, and for most, Jurassic Park became a fond memory from their childhood.

However, some kids didn't see the movie as mere spectators, they saw it through the eyes of budding filmmakers and found themselves inspired.

Two young moviemakers named Michael Raisch and David Chakris decided to create their own "remake" of Jurassic Park using their toys, hand drawn sets and a VHS camera. From Michael's website:

In the summer of 1993 inspired by the release of Jurassic Park, Michael and David set out to recreate the excitement and visuals of the hit film. Over a period 6 months in New Jersey they filmed multiple versions of the film until they were pleased with their final version. Equipped with the best VHS era technology, [Michael and David] re-created the movie magic of Jurassic Park with hand drawn sets, action figures and fishing line.

(YouTube Link)

It's incredible what David and Michael were able to accomplish with so little, and Michael has gone on to a successful career in graphic design and video that all began with this Jurassic Park short.

The History Of Wimbledon, As Told By Chris (Simpsons Artist)

Flourescent green balls are floating through the air, wealthy people dressed in bleached white outfits and sweatbands are running back and forth in a square divided by a net, while a judge sits in his tower overlooking it all.

That’s right, it’s time for Wimbledon’s whiffers to make their way back to the tennis courts, and even though tennis fans are all atwitter you can hardly hear a peep coming out of them because they’ve been silenced for the sake of player concentration.

Thankfully the amazingly knowledgeable Chris (Simpsons Artist) has all the 411 you need to understand the history of Wimbledon, including these tasty little fact nuggets:

1945 - tennis is accidentally invented by geoffrey tennis in his back garden while throwing a plum at the back of his wife annettes head as she slept on the grass

1947 - the first wimbledon is won by a man called glen littles who was known to have the littlest hands in the world that measured only 1cm long when fully erect

1948 - a man with tiny bell earrings entertains the crowd in the rain

Asgardian Iron Man Armor

Look at this beautiful suit of custom-made armor! It was fashioned by Samuel Lee of Prince Armory (previously), who specializes in one-of-a-kind cosplay armor. It’s made of leather with brass hardware, and it’s not for sale. Yes, Lee can make you something just as awesome, but he’s got a substantial waiting list. See more pictures at Geeks Are Sexy.

Love Wins, Robin Loses

The Supreme Court decision to legalize same-sex marriage across the U.S. is causing a few awkward moments. The most common joke is about commitment-phobic partners who are suddenly put on the spot about marriage. A 3-year-old Key and Peele routine illustrates that perfectly. In the scenario above, it’s a case of crossed signals and dashed hopes. Poor Robin! This is from the webcomic BatsVsupes. -via Geeks Are Sexy

Public Shamings That Ruined People's Lives

Public shaming has presumably been used as a punishment since people realized they could shame one another, but while shaming was once localized and would usually involve a pretty big faux pas, the internet means someone's entire life can be ruined by total strangers over something as minor as a tasteless Tweet.

This great TopTenz list demonstrates ten times people were publicly shamed online in ways that totally damaged their lives. While you could argue that at least most of them should have known better, it's hard to fault the baseball fan who tried to catch a foul ball and then ruined his team's chances of making it to the Series.

Death can be seen as a release from suffering, the point when your soul transition into an afterlife, or simply a fade to black.

(Vimeo Link)

That moment of death is the focus of this amazing animated short called “Coda”, by And Maps And Plans Studio as directed by Alan Holly. The art style is beautifully simplistic, the animation is top notch, and the story will truly sweep you away! (Contains cartoon nudity)

Forget Pink Plastic Flamingos, These Lawn Ornaments Are Where It's At

Plastic lawn flamingos are cool and all, but they're a little cliche. If you love the idea of lawn ornaments but want something a little more unique, you might consider heading over to Flamingo Incognito's Etsy shop where you can grab one-of-a-kind, handmade, flamingo-like ornaments.

From dragons to mermaids and from t-rex's to sea monsters, we can't get enough of these crazy, geeky sculptures that are all upcycled from boring, busted old pink flamingos.

I can't help but think that John Waters would love these, even if he wouldn't name a movie after it.
