Radiologist Recreates Famous Photos To Raise Funds For Cancer Patients

Australian radiologist Mark Udovitch knows his patients are in for the fight of their life as they battle to overcome cancer, and he also knows how costly that battle can be.

Which is why Mark started the Dry July fundraising campaign, so he could financially assist adults living with cancer in Sydney and raise cancer awareness at the same time.

Mark knew he needed a good gimmick to help him raise more funds, so he started recreating famous photos and posting them on his fundraising Facebook page.

Mark, and a few other members of his staff, are also planning to cut off their lovely locks as part of the Dry July Shave Off, a decision Mark made because one of his patients was so sad about losing her hair.

He hoped the photos taken by his girlfriend would not only help raise money but also serve as a funny way to approach a serious subject, so people would share them on social media and spread the word.

Considering his story went viral and tons of people, including a few celebs, have been sharing the story I'd say his plan worked!

South Park Studios Takes A Sentimental Look Back At Their First 19 Seasons

It's hard to believe South Park is about to begin their twentieth season but it's true, and two decades on the air has definitely softened Trey Parker and Matt Stone up a bit...just kidding!

South Park Studios is just as hardcore as ever (see the video game The Stick Of Truth), but they're celebrating the show turning twenty with a sweet and sentimental look back at all the dirty places they've been. (NSFW)

(YouTube Link)

The 20th season of South Park will premiere on Comedy Central on September 14, 2016, and the show is set to run until at least 2019, so keep growing older and South Park will grey right along with you!

A Stormtrooper Escort

Nicolas Denton went to Walt Disney World with his family. For the Hollywood Studios Star Wars Experience, he dressed up as Kylo Ren. When a couple of Stormtroopers saw him, they went right on duty, escorting him around the park, parting the crowd, leading him right into the Launch Bay their, past crowds of visitors in line, and right into the presence of a much-taller Kylo Ren!

(YouTube link)

As one of the commenters said, “A fast pass is no match for the power of the dark side.” A good time was had by all. -via reddit

The Pikachu Hunter Pumpgun

You shouldn't use dangerous weapons while hunting Pokémon in real life, because you're more likely to harm the little critters you're hunting than capture them.

Instead, you should check out this video by Joerg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel to see his Pokéball launching pumpgun in action.

It's the most hardcore way to catch 'em all, and actually makes being a Pokémon hunter look kinda cool...

Cosplayer Creates Epic Scale Spider Monster Costume

Cosplayer Marie-Claude Bourbonnais is so much more than just a beautiful face and a sexy costume- she's a truly talented costume designer and a crafty fabricator too.

Recently she created a costume that showcases all of her skills and makes her look amazing too, based on the anime character Rachnera from the series Monster Musume.

She “wore” the costume at Anime Expo 2016, although as you can see she can't really move in it once she's seated inside, and people began to bow down to the new queen of epic cosplay!

Marie crafted the arachnid abdomen and legs from scratch, starting with a fiberglass base which was covered with auto body filler so Marie could add sculpted details.

The whole thing was then sanded smooth and painted much like you'd paint the body of a car, with a nice glossy clear coat added on top of the paint job to make the whole thing pop.

Man Throws Batarang at Pursuing Police

(Image: Warner Bros.)

Batman has been in close calls with the police, who haven't always seen him as an ally. He has always gotten away, though, through his skilled use of precision tools, such as the batarang.

(Photo: Seattle Police)

But Batman's luck ran out on Monday. Police in Seattle say that officers were summoned to a bar one evening when a man began swinging an improvised spear (a knife tied to a stick) at a bar employee. He fled when police arrived. While they chased him, the suspect threw a batarang at a police SUV, which became embedded in the body of the vehicle.

They arrested the 23-year old vigilante.

50+ Fantastic Cosplay Photos From the 2016 San Diego Comic Con

Last week, Zeon Santos and I experienced the delightful, chaotic mobbing of geekery known as San Diego Comic Con. As always, some people went all out creating amazing costumes to celebrate their favorite movies, tv shows, comic books and video games, so as always, we took tons of pictures of those cosplays to share with you here at Neatorama. So here goes:

My personal favorite costumes this year were this Alien and his little brother, the Predator. These two couldn't have been more than 8 and 6, respectively, and the crowd loved them.

This incredible Xiall from Court of the Dead makeup was put together by Cig Neutron, a former Face Off contestant, and his talented model and partner, Rannie Rodil.

If you love costumes featuring stupid puns though, then perhaps you'd enjoy this group of "Slashers."

I got to see a real life barbarian this year, so that was pretty cool.

When it comes to beautifully detailed costumes, it's hard to beat this lion portrayed by Jo Skellington who even had sratches and scars carved into the fur on his body. Anyone know where he's from?

Son Replaces Family Photos With Pics Of Steve Buscemi, Mom Doesn't Notice

Steve Buscemi has a very unique appearance which makes it unlikely he'll ever be mistaken for, say, your uncle Ted, that is, unless Ted is a Buscemi look-alike.

Steve's look naturally makes him stand out in a crowd, and he can't hide his Buscemi eyes for long before somebody notices there's a major movie star in their presence and starts freaking out.

So how come this kid's mom didn't notice when he started replacing family photos in their house with pics of Steve Buscemi? Is she somehow immune to Buscemi's ocular charms?

The guy's sister @claremaura has been documenting the Buscemi invasion in her household and sharing it with the internet, and now that the story has gone viral maybe mom will finally notice?

Guy Wearing Dinosaur Onesie Edits Himself Into Photos Of Famous People

You know what every single photo taken of a celebrity is missing?

A dude wearing a dinosaur onesie while hanging out with said celeb, that's what, and since Lorenz Valentino owned a onesie and had the Photoshop skills he went to work editing himself into their photos.

Thanks to his skills, and his sweet onesie, Lorenz now hangs out with Macklemore, dates his dream Kardashian, err, Jenner, and poses like a sexy python ready to strike with his "longtime friend" Jennifer Lawrence.

When The Boss Institutes A Strict Dress Code, Start Cosplaying At Work

Office dress codes are a real drag, even with Casual Fridays, but employees who want to keep their jobs are forced to dress accordingly...or are they?

If you go by the experiences of June J Rivas then dress codes don't mean a thing, because when her boss instituted a severe and illegal dress code she replied by cosplaying to work.

June feels the new dress code is aimed directly at her and has filed complaints, but in the meantime she's having fun putting “work cosplay” outfits together which technically conform to the new dress code.

Cosplayers tend to be a mighty creative bunch, so if this dress code battle grinds on for a while June is going to make her boss wish she'd never had a problem with the way June used to dress!

Robert Jones and Brett Roberts clipped together the first supercut of The Greatest T-Shirts In Film, then Travis Greenwood teamed up with the duo to create the far more complete Part 2, now with over 100 entries!

Conan Patrols Comic-Con In His Superhero Suit

A true #American hero. #SDCC #ConanCon

A photo posted by CONAN (@teamcoco) on Jul 22, 2016 at 4:43pm PDT

Conan O'Brien has made it his mission to conquer Comic-Con ever since his show moved to L.A., so now we have show tapings and exclusive figures to look forward to at the event each year.

And when Conan hits the Con he hits it hard, bringing some of his patently unpredictable Coco magic with him, this time in the form of a super suit custom made for his bod by Ironhead Studio.

(YouTube Link)

Conan claims the suit is anatomically correct, but I think he stuffed his codpiece.

Surreal And Mesmerizing GIFs By Sam Cannon

 photo skullbubblegum_zpszxfywabi.gif

GIFs are a visual gift to the Users of the Internet, a mini cinematic present for our eyeballs to unwrap in a few seconds flat, but I can't decide if the GIFs created by Sam Cannon are given out of joy or spite.

Sam's mesmerizing and disturbing GIFs can be subtly creepy, extremely whimsical or both, and viewers may find it hard to tear their eyes away from these GIFs even when the subject keeps sending chills down their spine with a stare.

This Spokeless Cyclotron Is The Smart Bike Of The Future

Apparently all bikes will be spokeless in the future, since that's how they often appear in sci-fi shows and such, so in an effort to speed us towards the future the Cyclotron has appeared.

 photo cyclotron-feature-gif_zps8wwp2uqb.gif

The Cyclotron looks like a bicycle straight out of TRON, with built-in lights powered by a self- charging battery, smartphone connectivity, vinyl decals for customization and a modular design.

Riders can attach baskets inside the spokeless rims to carry stuff, and the Wingman child seat system lets you take your little ones along for the ride.

The History of Cosplay

Who knew? The first person to wear a costume to a science fiction convention dates back to the very first science fiction convention in 1939. The idea grew from there when people realized that it was fun, frivolous, and the better the costume, the more the fun. You got attention, made friends, and spread the news that fictional world fandom can bring the real world together.




(Facebook link)

While I have an extensive history in costumes, I only attended a science fiction convention in costume once. Conventions are a major hassle when you live in the middle of nowhere, while there are many opportunities to use a costume of one sort or another, at various jobs, parties, and when you have children. This video is from Timeline.  -via Digg

"Streets Of Whiterun" From Skyrim Played On A Beautiful Harp Guitar

Watching musician Andy McKee play is a delight for both eyes and ears, since his harp guitar sounds as wonderful as it looks, as you can see/hear when he plays Jeremy Soule's “Streets Of Whiterun” from the Skyrim soundtrack.

(YouTube Link)

Andy's magical instrument was made by Greenfield Guitars in Montreal, Canada, and proprietor Michael Greenfield shared a bit about the instrument's composition:

My harp guitar has its own, proprietary body shape and many unique features. While inspired by the early 20th century harp guitars, this is truly a contemporary instrument incorporating all of the modern physics and design features found on all of my guitars. …My harp guitar is made of a laminated rim set, with laminated linings and a system of aerospace composite carbon fibre trusses and buttresses. This makes for an extremely rigid and stable skeletal structure. The soundboard is lattice braced. The Laskin style extended arm rest is included, as is a mini-rib rest on the rear of the pointed section of the upper bout.

15 times Star Trek Altered the Timeline

In the Star Trek universe, the Prime Directive prohibits Starfleet personnel from interfering with the internal development of alien civilizations. They violate the directive over and over, but even worse, they interfere constantly with the space-time continuum. You can’t really blame the Enterprise crew, or even the writers, because time travel makes for wonderful stories. But it does mess up the continuity of several TV series and a dozen feature films. The Deep Space Nine episode “Trials And Tribble-Ations” even had the DS9 crew interacting with the characters in the 1960s series!

Plenty of Trek episodes dealt with time travel before DS9, but “Trials And Tribble-Ations” is the first to show characters traveling back to the events of a previous series; in a way, it serves as a prototype for the direction the new movie franchise would take, dipping in to the nostalgia of the original series while still maintaining its own voice. The plot here is largely an excuse to let the crew of DS9 interact with some of their “heroes,” as the episode uses footage from the classic original-series entry “The Trouble With Tribbles” intermixed with matching footage from the present. The effect is hugely entertaining, allowing the show to both mock and pay homage to the flaws and wonders of its predecessor. As a bonus, “Trials” also introduces the Department Of Temporal Investigations, a group dedicated to maintaining the internal logic of history. They mostly serve as a framing story, but the existence of the department is a helpful reminder that time travel and the shenanigans that result from it are an integral part of the franchise.  

The A.V. Club counts 14 other instances that time travel threw the Star Trek universe off-kilter. They always manage to “set things right” by the end, but who knows what changes they made in their timeline that the characters will never realize?

How Did The Klingons Get Warp Drive?

Klingons are one of the most barbaric and less technologically advanced races in the Star Trek universe, and they typically prefer to solve problems with combat actions rather than words.

So how did a race who spends too much time yelling, fighting and feuding and not nearly enough time studying, experimenting or inventing manage to create a warp drive?

According to this comic from Sheldon Comics they got it from that one Klingon who was super into science, the one who has a pencil tucked behind his ear instead of a knife.

6 Times Players Were The Real Villain In Video Games

Players always assume they're the hero when playing a video game, unless the box says otherwise, but they can never really tell what the game designers actually had in mind.

I mean, what if Dr. Robotnik was trying to save the defenseless animals from that hyperactive hedgehog, and Bowser was trying to convert the Mushroom Kingdom into a Democratic union?

Dorkly did an amazing job of making gamers wonder- which other video game "heros" have we been wrong to believe in all these years? Personally, I've always thought there was something not quite right about that Paperboy...

Studio Ghibli Explains Why Chihiro's Parents Turned Into Pigs In Spirited Away

Spirited Away is Japan's highest grossing film of all time, and even though the Japanese mythology themes aren't fully understood by most non-Japanese viewers the film is still a delight to watch.

But there's one scene even Japanese audiences wondered about- the scene where Chihiro's parents suddenly become pigs.

It was fairly easy to tell the scene was commenting on gluttony and/or greed, but Twitter user @0910noncha wanted to know for sure so she messaged Studio Ghibli- and they answered.

The studio sent her a two-page long reply, explaining that the pig scene is meant to represent “the greed that took place during the Japanese recession of the 80s”:

The letter also explained that the transformation was irreversible in order to reflect the nature of greed in the real world. The letter continued by saying that Chihiro knew that none of the pigs in the pen were her parents because her mindset had changed following her experiences in the underworld.

New Chinese Secret Weapon - A Giant Panda Wearing Iron Man Armor

It has become abundantly clear the Chinese are obsessed with Iron Man, and not just because his armor is red and gold in color just like their flag.

They're also obsessed with panda bears, which they thankfully began to cherish and protect before they went extinct, and now they've brought both obsessions together in one amazing statue.

This giant Iron Panda statue was created by Chinese artist Bi Heng, measures nearly thirty feet tall and must weigh a ton considering normal sized pandas definitely aren't lightweights.

The statue hangs around Shenyang, where people cherish this massive testament to mammalian ingenuity, and if the world is ever in trouble Iron Panda will be there to preserve balance with a blast of his Yin-Yang palm laser.

2 Fans Played Star Wars Music outside of John Williams's House. He Came out to Greet Them.

Michael Miller got his flugelhorn and Bryce Hayashi got his trumpet and they journeyed to the home of John Williams, the composer of the music of Star Wars. Standing outside his home, they played the title theme for the franchise.

It was a risky move. Williams could have taken offense at having his private life invaded by fans. But he was instead delighted at their performance. He came out of his house to greet them.

Female Fantasy Armor Explained

Female body armor seems to be made with sex appeal in mind rather than protection, at least according to many pop culture franchises, and up until the recent assimilation of geek culture that was fine.

But now people are declaring this sexy armor scandalous and demanding an explanation, so DeviantARTist Nebezial took a stab at explaining how it works with this strip. Seems legit to me!
