Stitchy Stardust - Even Aliens Appreciate Good Music


Stitchy Stardust by Fishbiscuit

Stitch had always been a fan of the greats- Elvis Presley, Don Ho and Chubby Checker, just to name a few, but when he got his hands on an early David Bowie record his little alien life was changed forever. He heard Major Tom calling out to Ground Control and imagined his former life in the cosmos, listened to tales about Ziggy Stardust battling Spiders from Mars and remembered battles he'd fought in the days before the big Aloha...

Mary Anning, "The Greatest Fossilist in the World"

YouTube Link

England's Mary Anning, born in 1799, was a pioneer in the field of paleontology. Her family's property was near Lyme Regis, an area known for its wealth of Jurassic-era fossils.

Anning risked her life to recover fossils, as the area was suceptible to landslides, particularly in the winter months. The landslides would expose new fossils, but they posed a great danger to those who traversed the land. She lost her dog Trey in such a disaster.

Anning is credited with some important finds, including the first skeleton of a plesiosaur, among other firsts. Check out this SciShow video to understand how Mary Anning shaped the scientific study of fossils. -Via Laughing Squid.

Summer Movies 2014: Hits and Misses

Believe it or not, despite how many massive movies came and went this summer, movies in general did not do as well this summer as projected. That means, a lot of big movies did not make the money they needed to make, while a couple other movies no one expected came in and kicked butt.

To put the summer movies of 2014 in perspective, Screen Junkies hosted a panel of some of the finest in internet movie writing (though I was woefully neglected) to talk about some of the best and some of the worst movies that came out this past summer. You really can't argue with their logic (though you don't have to agree with the one person who liked the TMNT reboot. Best we will just leave that alone).

(YouTube Link)

Much like the panel, I was shocked at how good Edge of Tomorrow was, but feel the need to expand on something they say. They all agree that Edge of Tomorrow was a surprisingly engaging and fun film, but that it had a super generic name. But someone should point out that the movie Edge of Tomorrow is based on a Manga book called All You Need Is Kill.

Now that, my friends, is a name that would have brought the movie the crowd it deserved. Okay, that is all. Just proving my worth for the next time they have one of these panels.

Burglary Victim Finds Himself Standing Next to Suspect at the Police Station

(Photo: ABC)

A burglar in Melbourne, Australia stole two expensive surfboards from Ross Moresi, who is pictured above. When he discovered his boards missing, Moresi called the police and alerted nearby surf shops.

A few hours later, the burglar sold the two boards to a local surf shop. He was quite casual about it. 7 News reports:

"He seemed really normal, drove a nice car, and you know was happy to hand over his licence details," said store worker Damien Bailey.

The store staff informed Moresi, who went to the local police station to inform them of this development. While he was standing in line at the front counter, Moresi heard the man in front of him identify himself with the name of the person who sold the stolen boards: Daniel Burne.

"He was spelling out his name," Ross said. "I looked down and I had that name written on a piece of paper."

"It was the guy.

"I looked at him and just said 'it's your unlucky day mate'.

"They pretty much told him you're under arrest."

Burne subsequently pled guilty to receiving stolen property.

Krispy Kreme Makes a Box of 2,400 Donuts


(Photos: Krispy Kreme UK)

Be a pal and pick up a box of donuts while you're out, okay? This one will do nicely. In every way except one, it's the traditional way that Krispy Kreme packages its boxes of 1 dozen donuts: this box contains 200 dozen instead of just 1.

The box is 11 feet long and over 3 feet tall. You may need some help with it. And remember to lift with your legs, not your back.

Krispy Kreme's UK division made this special box of donuts (yes, sadly, these are not available for general purchase) as a prize for a contest. Some lucky person in the UK has secured an entire week's supply of donuts as a result.

Meet The Suitsy - A Business Suit And Onesie Hybrid

Folks who have to wear a suit to work on a daily basis know what a pain it is to put on their suit piece by piece, only to take it all off again as soon as they get home.

If only there was a simple solution to this dressing dilemma:

Well now there is, thanks to San Francisco based inventor/venture capitalist Jesse Herzog and his unique creation the Suitsy- a suit-onesie hybrid that makes it stupidly simple to get all dressed up.

The Suitsy combines the sophisticated style of a business suit with the unified ease and comfort of a onesie, and might be just what the terminally lazy need to ensure they're properly dressed for work.

(YouTube Link)

Here’s the 411 on the funky fashion faux pas brought to life by Betabrand:

The Suitsy is a jacket connected to a shirt connected to pants. A zipper is hidden behind the shirt button placard (with false buttons) and pants zipper. Fake shirt cuff material extends from the end of the jacket sleeves to give the impression of an actual complete dress shirt worn underneath. It’s like if a jumpsuit and a business suit had a lovechild.

A Weird And Wonderful Trip To The Doll Hospital

Parents like to tell their children that broken dolls or teddy bears will be taken to the doll hospital for medical attention, to fill their young minds with a sense of wonder and spare them from the fact that their beloved toy is beyond repair.

I've always assumed the doll hospital was a product of some caring parent’s imagination, but as these photographs by Jason Reed prove the doll hospital is a real, and magical, place after all.

The Sydney Doll Hospital has been repairing cherished children’s toys since 1913, bringing dolls both plastic and porcelain, teddy bears and many other types of toys back to life with tender loving care.

Jason's photographs reveal the specialized skills involved in this labor of love, and the people who gladly use their crafting know-how to make children's lives a bit brighter.

Salvador Dali's Illustrations For The Twelve Signs Of The Zodiac

Salvador Dali wasn’t known for being a particularly spiritual person, although he believed that he was a reincarnation of his dead older brother.

He believed in mathematics and science over religion or superstition, but he was also known for capitalizing on a trend or two in order to make a quick buck.

The profit driven side of Dali led him to create an illustrated version of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, which were released in 1967 as limited edition lithographs meant to capitalize on public's renewed interest in all things astrological.

Dali replaced the Cancer crab with a lobster, as an homage to his earlier works, but left the rest of the Zodiac icons virtually unchanged, his surrealist vision focused on the use of color and texture rather than the radical reconstruction of their forms.

Check out the rest of Dali's Zodiac illustrations here

Trailer For Tim Burton's Upcoming Movie Big Eyes

Tim Burton is known for his kooky creature creations, his dark and quirky sense of humor, and the touch of classic cinematic style he adds to every film, and since he's always reinventing himself fans will always find something new to love about his movies.

Burton has created many different kinds of films, such as supernatural comedies, stop motion animated fantasies, dark sci-fi flicks and lighthearted family films, and now he's adding a new genre to his collection- the biographical drama.

(YouTube Link)

Tim Burton's upcoming film Big Eyes is based on the life of artist Margaret Keane, whose paintings of bug eyed kids and critters caused quite a stir in the pop art world in the 60s and 70s.

Big Eyes looks like it will be an interesting change of pace for the prolific filmmaker, adding yet another dimension to the visionary's incredibly diverse cinematic career.

Logic Power - A Vulcan Revolutionary


Logic Power by Chibi T-Shirts

Spock had always been a fan of revolution, especially when it involved people fighting for their basic rights against an unjust ruler, but there was something about Earth's 1960s that really captured his imagination. He pictured himself marching on Washington, giving extremely logical speeches about how all people should be treated equally, and shouting "Power to the People!" while sporting a shaggy afro wig. But when the crew of the Enterprise saw Spock marching around the corridors shouting and pumping his fist in the air they knew something had to be done about this flight of fancy before the whole thing became another protest related tragedy...

Bring the power of logic and reason to your geeky wardrobe with this Logic Power t-shirt by Chibi T-Shirts, and show the world you have the power of imagination on your side!

Metallic Shield - Superheroes And Super Spies


Metallic Shield by Alecxps

If the super secret agency known as SHIELD ever had to choose a color to represent their agency chances are they'd choose either black or metallic silver. Black is the color of stealth, the nothingness of midnight and the ever present forces of evil they battle against, metallic silver is the color of the weapons, be they guns or power armor, they use to take down the bad guys. Separately these colors mean business, but together they spell total destruction for anyone who messes with SHIELD!

Declare your allegiance to the mightiest spy network in the universe with this Metallic Shield t-shirt by Alecxps, and show those supervillains who's boss!

Pixar and Their Awesome Blooper Reels: A Bug's Life

Pixar seem to go above and beyond when it comes to producing family entertainment. The quality of their work, when paired with the art and writing, pretty much ensures everyone walks away a fan of everything they do.

A great example of going above and beyond is going so far as to animate blooper reels to put at the end of some of their films. It is those little examples of going further than necessary that puts Pixar above most film companies. Also, how can you possibly be in a bad mood when animated bugs are messing up their lines to a cartoon? It just elevates the soul.

(YouTube Link)

I may not be a doctor, or anything close to a doctor. Heck, I would go so far as to say you should never take medical advice from me. That being said, pretty sure a Pixar blooper reel a day would keep the doctor away.

Los Angeles Lawyer Thought Phony Pictures of Her Hanging With Celebrities Would Boost Biz



Los Angeles-based attorney Svitlana Sangary, on a website advertising her legal services, filled a page with bad Photoshop jobs of herself standing side-by-side with President Obama, George Clooney and Barbra Streisand, among other celebrities. Her false advertising now exposed, she faces a possible six-month suspension by the California Bar. In spite of being in hot water, Sangary has not removed the images from her website. 

Sangary, in a nonsensical reponse to the charges, wrote,

“Also with regard to false statements and misleading advertisement, none other than Natalie Portman comes to mind. The online media extensively covers the controversy surrounding Natalie Portman’s performance in the film Black Swan. The ballet dancer who performed in the Black Swan, Sarah Lane, has come forward to revel [sic] a “cover up” and says that Natalie Portman’s head was superimposed onto Sarah Lane’s body, and that Natalie Portman lied…Despite the foregoing, Natalie Portman has won an Oscar for her performance in Black Swan.”

 On September 11, State Bar Court Judge Donald Miles made a decision that read in part,

"The court has grave concerns regarding [Sangary's] demonstrated lack of insight and her contemptuous conduct during these proceedings," Miles wrote. Her "failure to remove the deceptive images from her website, even after the State Bar brought this issue to her attention, and her demonstrated disregard for the disciplinary process give little reason to believe that her misconduct will not continue."

The California Supreme court will make the final decision as to punishment for Sangary. Read more at the Los Angeles Times.

The Scariest Music Video You Have Never Seen

Music videos often come across like they want to be bubble gum. They want to be easily accessed and enjoyed by all. They want to be safe and tasty, but nothing too out of the ordinary. But there are exceptions to every rule. In this case, the exception are the music videos of electronic artist Aphex Twin (who is actually known as Richard David James). He blends the scary with the insane, and it all acts as a soundtrack to his frantic, break-beat music that makes you feel like you are going to jump out of your skin.

Though I will tell you this video is intense, scary, and at times, overwhelming, I can also tell you it is SFW. Just keep the volume fairly low, and expect anyone who walks by your cubicle to look at you really strange and maybe not want to sit with you at lunch after.

(YouTube Link)

If you find the anarchaic and dystopian future in this video cool, you should check out some of his other work. Pretty much all his music videos will scar you for life in one way or another.

7 Incredible Natural Phenomena You May Have Never Seen

Image Credit:Rolf van Mellis

Weather is a fairly compelling spectacle. Not just weather itself, but some of the weirder weather phenomena that occurs throughout the world. The stuff we hear about, but never see. Truthfully, in regards to some of the things mentioned on the following list, you may not even HEARD of them.

While everyone can say they have seen a particularly tumultuous rainstorm before, what about when it rains fish in Honduras? That is one we might not as familiar with.

Witnesses of this phenomenon state that it begins with a dark cloud in the sky followed by lightning, thunder, strong winds and heavy rain for 2 to 3 hours. Once the rain has stopped, hundreds of living fish are found on the ground. People take the fish home to cook and eat them.

I am not even sure what is weirder. The fact that the sky rains fish semi-regularly in Honduras, or the fact that the natives take the strange fish, cook it, and eat it. To them, it is a gift from the Gods. To us, it is science.

This list over at Oddee of strange natural phenomena is well worth checking out, as raining fish seems to be the tip if the iceberg. Don't worry. It is not all weather related. One of the entries is about goats who climb trees.

Yup. You just read that correctly.

Thirteen Facts About George R.R. Martin


Tomorrow is George R.R. Martin's 
66th birthday. In honor of the occasion, Dustin Rowles at Uproxx has compiled a list of facts about the celebrated writer/producer. The focus of this list is on Martin's personal life. 

For instance, when George R.R. Martin was in the sixth grade, he impulsively decided to stop buying and reading comic books which, prior to that decision, was a significant hobby of his. At the time, young George had a collection of Superman comics, which he gave away. Just in time, and in what could be considered an omen of his future success, he changed his mind six months later, buying first editions of The Amazing Spider-man and The Fantastic Four. Martin now says they could fund his retirement.

Desensationalized Headlines

Headlines: in the past five years or so, they seem to have reached a level beyond ridiculous. A writer may say that reading X will make the reader Y, when Y is to go insane, be unable to believe their eyes, scream, hide under their desk or some other dramatic presumption. Readers may be assured that a certain article will change their lives, alter the way they live them, or revolutionize the way they cook beets until the day they die. Readers may be told in advance that, in a list, number three will make them rip out their hair/laugh hysterically/do a jig/hug their mama.

Headlines for celebrity gossip stories are similarly absurd. Older celebrities are crticized if they have wrinkles or show other signs of age, yet they are constantly being monitored for signs of plastic surgery. Male and female luminaries who dare to wear swimsuits without being perfect tens have their bodies picked apart, feature by feature. Some headlines suggest that overweight stars have a lot of nerve to show their face in public. Starlets wearing baggy sweaters or who've just eaten big dinners may be described as pregnant. 

The pictures here are examples of such exaggerated celebrity headlines. Summing up the photos in plain language may sound boring and state the obvious, but at least they are accurate. Via 22 Words.

Designers Reveal The Typography Found In Everyday Objects

Human beings are surrounded by shapes and letters, at least according to our human eyes, which are always busy spotting the work of some invisible scribe in objects all around us.

Writers/designers Steven Heller and Gail Anderson have put together an inspirational sourcebook called The Typographic Universe: Letterforms Found In Nature, The Built World, And Human Imagination that reveals the typography we think we see all around us.

With sections revealing the letters found in the garden, in home furnishings, and even the letters formed by parts of the human body, you can be sure that no stone was left unturned in the making of this compelling sourcebook.

Seeing the typography of the everyday world is easy if you know what you're looking for, but be forewarned- once you start seeing the typography all around us you won't be able to stop seeing letters everywhere!

Hand Stitched Portraits Reflect Life In The Digital Age

As we become more reliant on technology in our everyday lives our relationship with the digital age becomes more complicated, and we find ourselves growing more accustomed to having a part of our lives that is purely digital.

Between entertainment, social media and mundane tasks like shopping or banking we’re constantly relying on technology to keep us linked in to a global digital network driven by interaction, but aren't we losing a bit of ourselves in the process?

Melbourne-based artist Catherine Tipping created these masterfully hand stitched portraits that reflect our complicated relationship with the digital age, portraits of people losing a bit of themselves to the digital world.

Catherine's subjects are in the process of being interrupted by digital static and pixelation, like our modern minds are constantly being interrupted by the digital technology that surrounds us.

Vintage MTV Concert Doc - Punks And Poseurs

It’s hard to believe the MTV of today was once a network devoted to music, and thriving subcultures based around music, instead of cheesy reality shows and decidedly non-musical content.

MTV has begun to show music videos once again, but it's safe to say they will never be the trend setters they once were, as this amazing documentary called Punks and Poseurs that aired in 1985 will demonstrate.

(YouTube Link)

This freakin’ rad, totally cutting edge (for its time) concert video features performances by bands like the Dickies and GBH, and footage of perfectly punk writers Pleasant Gehman and Iris Berry trashing the influx of "poseurs" making their way into the L.A. punk scene in the mid-80s.

The Titan's Blue Box- My Collection Is Now Complete


The Titan's Blue Box by Fmm3

Thanos sees the universe as his personal property, full of people and planets to do with whatever he pleases, but he didn't count on the power of one lord of time and his sonic screwdriver. When a blue police box passed through a sector of the galaxy currently under attack by Thanos' forces the titan had to have it for his own. It was just his bad luck that The Doctor hadn't ever heard any tales about Thanos' might, so he didn't know better than to bring the fight to that big, ugly brute...

This 8-Year Old Earns $1.3 Million a Year


(Photo: EvanTubeHD)

This is Evan. He's 8 years old. He earns more money than you and I do. In fact, he earns more money than we ever will.

Is that depressing? Wait--I'm not finished yet.

Evan earns that money by playing with toys, reviewing them, then posting his thoughts on YouTube. For example, here he is trying out a LEGO Ghostbusters kit:


(Video Link)

His YouTube channel earns $1.3 million a year. He doesn't get to keep all of that, of course. There are production expenses. But Evan's father invests what's left in a fund for Evan and his siblings.

So, clearly, I should quit my job and make YouTube videos. Then I'll get rich!

The Ancient Maya Batman

To mark the 75th anniversary of the birth of Batman, the Mexican division of Warner Home Entertainment and the Mexican Museum of Design gave plain white plastic busts of Batman to 30 Mexican artists. They encouraged the artists to do whatever they wanted with them.

One of the artists, Kimbal, responded with this Pre-Columbian Batman inspired by Maya art and mythology. Appropriately, it references Camazotz, a Maya god that looked like a vampire bat.

In the current DC continuity, Batman has appeared in paleolithic Gotham, 17th Century Gotham, and the Old West. Perhaps DC should make a comic about Batman in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica.

Eight Little-Known Facts About Zoolander



Rumors have been going around about a Zoolander sequel lately, thirteen years after the original. Hard to say what Hansel, Mugatu, Derek and the gang could be up to these days. But for now, a blast from the past -- eight facts about Zoolander

Here's a fun one: bizarro novelist Brett Easton Ellis (whose Twitter feed alone could probably get him committed for a 72-hour psych eval.) sued Ben Stiller, claiming he stole the Zoolander concept from Ellis'1998 novel, Glamorama. The book's plotline involved a model who turned terrorist. The case never made it to court, as the two camps reached a settlement. Somehow I think Stiller got ripped off in that exchange.

The Mexican Burrowing Toad Is Cute--From a Certain Point of View

Well, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view, as the wise Obi-Wan Kenobi put it. Far be it from me to engage in toad-shaming.

The entomologist and nature photographer Piotr Naskrecki found this Mexican burrowing toad (Rhinophrynus dorsalis) in Belize. He says that in the traditional Mayan religion, it was called Uo and was associated with the god of rain. It's about the size of a human fist and is a surprisingly quick mover.

The toad is known for burrowing with its hind legs. As it digs, it inflates its body to expand and stabilize the burrow. It feeds underground, where it hunts insects, such as ants and termites.
