Crazy Custom Painted Movie Posters From Nigeria

Countries around the world make movie posters their own way, using their own native art techniques and imagery that appeals to their own people, and whether the movie is local or imported from LaLaLand every release gets its own custom poster treatment.

Nigerian artists have a very unique style when it comes to creating a painted movie poster, and this style is partly derived from the subject of their paintings- the freaky films being created in Ghana:

Movies like Wondeful Dog, Why Should I and Blood Money look like the African equivalent of Grind House cinema, and they've inspired some wonderfully terrifying movie poster masterpieces which can be found in a gallery created by Imgur user iliketechno.

Oh, and there are a few whacked out versions of Hollywood movie posters in there too:

Stylist Cuts Hair for the Homeless Because "Every Human Life Is Worth the Same."

Climbing out of homelessness is the pursuit of human dignity. Society at large may express that homeless people are worthless or at least worth less. But Mark Bustos doesn't think so. He wants to restore the dignity of homeless people in New York City.

Bustos is a professional hair stylist at Three Squares Studio, a high-end salon. Every Sunday, he takes a kit of hair cutting tools and seeks out homeless people who need a haircut. He approaches prospective clients and says, "I want to do something nice for you today."

Afterward, when his clients look better, they feel better about themselves.

Smartphone Notification Trolling

This wouldn't work with me. I keep my cellphone on silent all of the time. People who really need to contact me can, well, go away, I guess.

So at most, Manfred Hanberg would be able to confuse me. He' a great impersonator. Watch him troll a friend by mimicking the notification tones perfectly.

Eleven Facts About The Woman Behind The Mouse - Lillian Marie Disney

The saying goes "behind ever great man is a greater woman", and even though this saying is considered a bit outdated these days the phrase often rang true throughout history.

Take Walt Disney for example- his wife is almost never talked about anymore, and even though many people know the names of their children who later took over the company far fewer know her name, or the impact she had on the creation of the Disney empire.

Some folks may know that Lillian is the one who actually came up with the name Mickey, because she felt Mortimer sounded too pompous, but did you know that there's a Disneyland Railroad car and a paddle steamer replica in Florida's Downtown Disney named after her?

The train car's called the Lilly Belle and the steamer is called The Empress Lilly, both named in honor of Walt's one true love.

A few of these "before" photos are a testament to the horrible way that some humans treat animals. Thankfully, all of the "after" photos speak volumes about the wonderful impact that some people can have in the lives of such animals. These uplifting canine transformations not only show what a difference a good grooming can make, but also the spiritual difference evildent in the dogs' postures and expressions.

Man Claims to Have Tamed a Japanese Giant Hornet, Keeps It on a Leash

Japanese Giant Hornets (Vespa mandarinia japonica) are as scary as the name sounds. At two inches long, they're huge by hornet standards. They're aggressive and have killed people. You do not want them around you.

Unless you're Twitter user @mikuru625. He claims that he's tamed one enough that it willingly wears a leash.

He says that the hornet has occasionally bitten him, but never stung him.

Microsoft App Aims To Turn Boring First Person Videos Into Thrilling Hyperlapses

The internet is full of first person footage these days, whether it’s fun action footage or boring everyday stuff, because everyone loves their GoPro cameras or their Google glasses, and they’re dying to share their video view of the world with the world.

However, that footage is usually way too long, with lots of camera shake and bounce, so even when it’s shortened into a time lapse the footage is really hard to watch.

(Video Link)

A new Microsoft Research Project is concerned with creating a solution to those first person footage problems, and they’re about to introduce an app that will allow users to create hyperlapse videos that run at 10x the speed of the original video without all that shake.

You'll be able see the world through someone else's eyes without feeling sick to your stomach, although you still may feel a bit queasy after watching some of those stunt videos...

Poker Player Wins 15 Million Dollars, Keeps Poker Face

YouTube Link

Daniel Colman's reaction to winning 15 million dollars in a poker tournament — the second largest prize in the history of the game  has elicited confusion and criticism from all over. Colman has been publicly called out for his refusal to do interviews promoting himself or the game following his big win. Journalist Case Keefer from the Las Vegas Sun dubbed him a "petulant child." Colman beat Daniel Negreanu in the 2014 Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker, held in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

As a person who is uncomfortable in any spotlight and who reacts calmly and contemplatively to many things for which others might jump for joy, I get it. That may not be the reasoning behind the 23-year-old man's behavior, but I choose to give him the benefit of any doubt. Via Viral Viral Videos.

Summer Camp in a State Prison


(Photo: Shereen Marisol Meraji/NPR)

When a child's father is sent to prison, it may be years before the child gets to see that man again. Traveling great distances for visits can be expensive. That's why Hope House was founded in 1998. It's an organization that conducts summer camps for the children of inmates. They do fun outdoor activities and crafts. And every day, they visit and reconnect with their fathers behind the prison walls.


(Photo: Shereen Marisol Meraji/NPR)

Hope House operates two camps in Maryland, one in North Carolina, and partners with similar programs in California, Texas, and New Hampshire. Inmates can apply to participate after a year of good behavior and completing a parenting class.

Shereen Marisol of National Public Radio visited one of these camps in Maryland. You can listen to audio of her interviews with children and program directors here.

Witold Pileki: Polish Badass

Witold Pileki was a leader in the Secret Polish Army, a resistance group that operated under the radar after Hitler’s troops occupied the country. In 1940, they knew that the Nazis were rounding up Jews and others they considered undesirable and sending them off by train. Pileki hatched a plan to be arrested and start an uprising among the prisoners. September 19, 1940, Pileki made sure he was among a group of 2,000 to be arrested, and he was sent to Auschwitz.    

At the time, no one knew (or believed) that the Nazis were systematically murdering Jews and others in concentration camps such as Auschwitz. Pilecki and TAP were no exception. But Pilecki’s ability to infiltrate the camp began to change that. He managed to organize a small resistance group within the death camp, focusing mostly on increasing morale — any attempts to forcibly resist the Nazis would have certainly failed. Similarly, his ability to communicate with those outside of Auschwitz’s walls was limited, to say the least. So Pilecki did what few others were able to do: he broke out.

After two-and-a-half years in the concentration camp, that was no small feat. And it was only the beginning of the efforts in which Pileki spent the rest of his life to free to people of Poland. His story remained unknown outside of Poland until the fall of communism in 1989, but now you can read about him at Boing Boing.

Generation Nice

The millennial generation, those born between 1981 and 1999, are now estimated to number over 80 million in America. That’s more than even the baby boom generation! They’ve been called spoiled, narcissistic, and overly tech-dependent, but those generalizations come from the outliers that get our attention, not from real statistics. The events that shaped their lives include Katrina, 9-11, the housing bust, the longest war in American history, and millennials have developed their own ways of dealing with the uncertainties and insecurities of modern life.

“Almost two-thirds (64 percent) of millennials said they would rather make $40,000 a year at a job they love than $100,000 a year at a job they think is boring,” the Brookings Institution recently noted in a report by Morley Winograd and Michael Hais titled “How Millennials Could Upend Wall Street and Corporate America.”

The generation that gave us Occupy Wall Street has embraced its own modes of entrepreneurship, found across the broad spectrum of “creatives,” from stylists to techies, who reject the presumed security of the corporate job and riskily pursue their own ventures, even if it means working out of their parents’ basement. At the same time, record numbers of new college graduates are applying for jobs in the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps or Teach for America.

Sneaky Mom Creates App That Prevents Her Teens from Using Their Phones Until They Call Her

Do you need to get in touch with your kids? There's an app for that.

One day, Texas mom* Sharon Standifird tried to call her teenage children who were gallivanting about away from home. They ignored her calls and texts. Stanifird became worried. Although her kids were okay, she had no reason to think that.

When her kids got back home, Stanifird decided to put an end to this problem. She worked with app developers to build an app that would lock her kids' phones until they called her and got a password from her verbally. They can call 911 and they can call her. But that's it.

The app is called Ignore No More. It's available for Android devices. Is it any good? Stanifird's son, Bradley, likes the idea--in theory:

Um, well I thought it was a good idea, but for other people, not me.

What It's Like To Play Online Games As A Grown-Up

Nobody knows how old you are when you’re playing a game online, but there are certain things that can tip you off about the age of your opponent- overly cheerful cursing, lack of post-pubescent knowledge and the sound of a mom's voice in the background are all clear signs you're battling a bunch of kiddos.

So how do you properly handle the pimple faced masses online when you're busy growing a beard and having a girlfriend, and other rather grown-up activities?

You act like a grown-up and shove that game aside, for the good of your love life...and your sanity!

Mom Goes to Elementary School to Register Her Son, Promptly Gives Birth in the School Office


(Photo of Vanessa DeLeon and her family by Malini Basu)

"At first I was like, oh my God. I can't believe I'm one of those ladies that has baby at one of those weird random places," said Vanessa DeLeon.

Yet this was Ms. DeLeon's fate. She is similar to the elementary school teacher who gave birth in her own classroom. But the mother in this story from Pasadena, Texas didn't work at the school. She went there to register her son Alexis for pre-kindergarten. While doing so, she went into labor.

Fortunately, the school nurse, Ashleigh Morris, was present. She was on her second day on the job. KHOU describes the event:

"This is our makeshift labor and delivery room for the day," said Moore. "She layed down right here. She was screaming."

With the help of the principal and school officer, they delivered the baby. Minutes later, little Geovani came into the world. They used a string to cut the umbilical cord.

With no towels or blankets in school, they needed something to wrap the baby in.

"Ashleigh is over there and she is saying I need t-shirts, we are just grabbing them and throwing to her," said Principal Libby Escalante.

Mommy and baby are healthy.

And Alexis even got a spot in pre-K.

-Thanks, Wifey!

The Expendables - Video Game Stars Take Action


The Expendables by Berserk7

They weren't the first choice for the front line, but their surplus of extra lives made them the perfect choice....and totally expendable. Mario headed the team of hand picked video game superstars because his sweet 'stache made him look like a leader, and because nobody could understand what Pac and Crash were saying. Sonic decided to slow down and do some sniping, while Mega went heavy weapons with his minigun arm. Together they would change the way people thought about action games, and earn a team high score at the same time.

Celebrate the action packed legacy of video game mashups with this The Expendables t-shirt by Berserk7, it's rated M for movie mashup mayhem!

Radar Showing Airplanes Avoiding Thunderstorms

YouTube Link

It is easy for air travelers to get wrapped up in the excitement of going on vacation, or in the business or personal situations that necessitate their presence. Usually they aren't cognizant of what their pilots are being carefully instructed to avoid.

This video shows the pointed twists and turns in airplane routes as pilots maneuver around storms that have potential to negatively affect their flights. It's easy to take for granted that generally, airplane flights are relatively smooth and free of disturbance. Footage such as this is a reminder just how much air traffic controllers and pilots work to make that happen. Via Viral Viral Videos.

I Made a Taco Pizza

Because we have been married for 10 years, she did not even look at me funny when I proposed the idea.

Perhaps my saintly wife has come to understand me. Perhaps I've worn her down. In either case, I am a lucky man.

For you see, my taco pizza made with 3 whole Taco Bell tacos required her assistance to make. She makes perfect pizza dough, so I asked her to make me a batch.

Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day

(YouTube link)

August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day! Black cats, like black dogs, are often passed over for adoption, possibly because of outdated myths, or possibly because their color makes it difficult to see their facial expressions. But black cats need homes, too, and they can be wonderfully loving pets.

Furball Fables celebrates with a video highlighting their favorite black cats: Kitten Gunnar, Buddha, Spooky, Squiggy, Ziggy, Lucky and Miss Blacat.  

There’s a Facebook page called For the Love of Black Cats where you can plenty more black cats on Black Cat Appreciation Day -or any time.



And here’s a “now and then” picture of my black cat Gogo as a kitten and fifteen years later.

This Lamp Looks Like a Giant Pencil

This is the HB Lamp by Michael & George, a design team in London. It looks like a sharp pencil. But don't worry that someone will mark all over your floor and walls. The line is just a 33-foot long power cord. That's enough to plug in from a great distance or let you draw a lot.

Michael & George will display their lamp at the London Design Festival on September 12.

The Marmot That Stopped Time

(YouTube link)

Greenpeace was working on a video about coal mining on public lands, which features a time-lapse nature sequence. Filming such a sequence doesn’t always go smoothly, though. This one was photobombed by a marmot, who not only screwed up the possibility of converting the video to a time-lapse, but also got so friendly with the camera that it was knocked off balance! That’s a good marmot. -via Metafilter

At the end of a long day, the topiary laid back and slept.

I'm having trouble determining the origin of this bush, but I gather that it is located in Le Jardin de Plantes, a botanical garden in Paris. It may have been inspired by the work of the children's book illustrator Claude Ponti.

27 Photos That Show The Transformative Power Of Makeup

(Image Via Imgur)

Using makeup seems like a ridiculous habit to some, a must before leaving the house to others, and although everyone can agree that Halloween/special effects style makeup is really cool looking, not everyone sees eye-to-eye on the idea of covering your true face with a bunch of cosmetics.

(Image Via Dailymail)

Makeup is a powerful tool for visually altering or enhancing facial features, and The San Francisco Globe's article 27 Photos That Demonstrate The Power Of Makeup clearly shows how makeup artists earn their artist title- by creating some rather incredible facial transformations.

So, whether you think wearing makeup is fun and necessary, or a total waste of time and effort, these photos clearly demonstrate why so many people still wear makeup every day, and why some feel naked leaving home without it.

Drivers Claimed That They Didn't See the Giant Safety Cone Crossing the Street

(Photo: Riverside County Sheriff)

Police in Riverside County, California, would to remind drivers that they should stop when pedestrians are crossing the crosswalk. It's the law and an essential safety procedure.

To illustrate the importance of this traffic law, one undercover officer dressed in a huge orange safety cone costume. They pulled over and ticketed drivers who drove through the crosswalk without stopping while the cone was crossing. Some of the drivers they cited claimed that they never saw the giant walking safety cone.

This was not the first time that police performed a sting operation like this. The safety cone costume is, though, a new addition:

Officers had specifically selected a high-profile outfit because motorists cited in past operations complained the undercover officer was not visible.

Shark Cat Returns With Shark Baby

YouTube Link

Max-Arthur, also known to his beloved Internet as Shark Cat, has had many adventures in his time. He pioneered Roomba surfing. He went Roomba riding in pursuit of a duck. He's been immortalized in Lego and even has his own theme song. I'm surprised Barbara Walters hasn't emerged from retirement to interview this feline legend.

But if Walters did come out of the shadows to pose meaningful questions to Max-Arthur, I imagine one would be, "You've done it all Shark Cat  what's next?" The likely answer? In honor of Shark week, Max-Arthur has teamed up with an as yet unnamed shark baby. Baby looks cute and serves as a representative of Shark Cat's enthralled audience. And all is right with the Internet. Via Tastefully Offensive.
