First Look At Disney's New Animated Short, Feast

(YouTube Link)

The Paperman was an award winning short film for Disney, which put their short films back on the map a few years ago. The shorts are usually produced by people who work for Disney, but not the main crew that are working on the film the short precedes. The Paperman was a stunning piece of work, and it looks like Disney's next short, Feast, will be no less amazing. It features an adorable hungry dog, and that is about all we know right now.

Also, please note, the cell-shaded animation style is visually stunning, and it is awesome to see Disney stepping outside of their bubble and trying new things.

Keep your eyes peeled for Feast when Big Hero 6 is released on the 6th of November.

42 Peculiar Products of the Past



This little number shown above is The Isolator, a brainchild of one Hugo Gernsback, who is now often referred to as a pioneer of science fiction. The device, advertised in a 1925 issue of Science and Invention magazine (of which Gemsback was the editor), was intended to help a writer (or reader) focus completely on their task at hand. Or rather, to hyperfocus. The slit in the mask only allowed for one line of text to be seen at a time. If that wasn't enough to disorient and produce tunnel vision, sound was blocked and oxygen piped in via the tank.

As one who writes for a number of outlets as well as for myself, I think the act of being in a room with a computer and few distractions for as long as it takes to see a project to completion is quite enough isolation as it is, thanksverymuchhugo.

The 41 other strange, often hilarious contraptions featured in this article were marketed to people of the past as the latest products to revolutionize their lives. Before there were infomercials in the pre-dawn hours, these ads lurked in newspapers and magazines, their sponsors hoping the public would embrace them like apple pie. Fortunately for us, none of the products shown here survived the quasi-Darwinian cut of devices to persevere. -Image Source

Sweet Irony - S'mores For The Win!


Sweet Irony by Valdivia/Illustrations

When those busters were busy battling a giant sized marshmallow man they overlooked one secret weapon they had in their arsenal- Slimer! That little green ghost with the huge appetite would have made short work of a marshmallow man, especially if he had lots of graham crackers and chocolate on hand. The marshmallow man may have been one tough pile of fluff to take down, but imagine how hard it would be to stop Slimer when he has a full blown case of the munchies!

Share your love of delicious treats, and delightful movies, with this Sweet Iron t-shirt by Valdivia/Illustrations, and show the world you ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Krutika Mallikarjuna of BuzzFeed rounded up 33 of the best Adventure Time tattoos. They’re totally mathematical!


As revealed in “Prisoners of Love,” the Ice King has a tattoo of a penguin on his right buttock. That image would make a great tattoo on . . . well, some part of the body.

If Comic Creators Could See Their Characters Now





Tony Wilson of Dorkly imagined how the creators of classic comic book characters would react if they encountered what their creations have turned into. I would be curious to also see the reactions of Elizabeth Halloway Marston to the modern Wonder Woman and Paul Norris to the modern Aquaman.

E.C. Segar shouldn't shame Popeye for selling into a fried chicken restaurant with the same name. A man’s got to earn a living, you know.

Vending Machine and Mailbox Halloween Costumes

Redditor MoobyTheGoldenCalf is a generous and crafty parent. S/he writes, “So last year my kid wanted to be a mailbox for Halloween. This year, he wanted to be a vending machine. Here are the results.” They are impressive costumes--possibly enough to fool the inattentive.


The vending machine has a plastic sheet in the front “so that kids don’t run up to him and steal the chips.” Smart thinking, that. The candy deposit slot is on the right. There’s a light on the inside and a mirror film that lets the boy see out, but other people won’t be able to see in.


The mailbox is made of cardboard and foam. There are stated collection times on the front: trick-or-treating takes place between 5-7 PM.

The 5 Most Extreme Haunted Attractions in America

Image Credit: Chaojoker

When most people think about haunted houses and haunted attractions around Halloween, they imagine a school cheaply converted into a haunted house, where you walk through laughing while strangers in cheap costumes jump out at you an scream. While that may be an accurate description for most haunted attractions, there are a handful that are considered extreme. You need to sign wavers before you go through them, they can take hours, and the things you can see (and have happen to you) are troubling, to say the least.

For the few of you curious or brave enough to experience one of these traumatizing places, here is a list of The Five Most Extreme Haunted Houses in America, and I will warn you now, even the description of a few of these places is too extreme for me to put here.

Put it this way, if you do not like bodily fluids or being touched by strangers, these just aren't for you. For the rest of you, have fun and good luck.

The Matrix Trilogy Summed Up in Under 3 Minutes

The Matrix is one of those very polarizing trilogies. Some people like the fact that it incorporated Eastern philosophies and mixed them with modern ideas of technology and free-will. Others looked at it like a contrived action movie that tried too hard to be deep. One thing everyone can agree on, people walk away from the Matrix trilogy all with a different feeling on what just went down. It can be very confusing to piece together the whole thing after its many hours are behind you.

Thankfully, the guys over at TL;DW on YouTube put together this handy-dandy video that pretty much breaks this almost nine hour series down to just under three minutes. While the flash animations make lack some panache, the way they summarize the story is pretty awesome, and often times, hilarious.

(YouTube Link)

It is funny while also be pretty spot-on. Oh, and it saves you nine hours.

Ralph Steadman Illustrates Breaking Bad

When you need an illustrator to bring the characters from AMC’s beloved series Breaking Bad to life you turn to someone used to creating drawings for gritty storylines- Ralph Steadman

Ralph has created a series of portraits in his signature style featuring the major characters from Breaking Bad, and they are drop dead awesome!

Ralph was commissioned by BrBa creator Vince Gilligan to create six different illustrations which will be used as cover art for each season in the upcoming limited edition Blu-ray release of Breaking Bad.

Steadman's splattery style brings these troubled characters to life in an appropriately twisted way, and hopefully he'll create more art based on the series so we can see the world of Breaking Bad through Steadman's eyes.

Haunted Mansion Stretch Portraits Starring Disney Princesses

The stretch portraits found in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion slowly reveal what brought about the untimely demise of those who now dwell within the walls of that spooky estate. 

This colorful bit of dark ride décor has been a fan favorite from the very beginning, and a source of inspiration for artists whose illustrations are inspired by Disney animation. 

Illustrator Laura Knighton, aka That Disney Lover, has created a delightfully dark series of Haunted Mansion inspired stretch portraits starring Disney princesses, revealing the fate of those who have pushed these lovely ladies too far.

Laura's portraits might not ever find their way into the Haunted Mansion, but hopefully they'll show the Disney fans in the world that sometimes sugar and spice won't get the job done...

It's The Great Oogie - A Neighborhood Nightmare


It's The Great Oogie by Warbucks Design

That oogie Boogeyman was feeling dog gone tired after all that fussing and fighting with Jack, and he needed a little time to reflect on the direction his afterlife was heading.

In fact, the only real friends he'd ever had were those three little round headed kids he was always sending out to do jobs for him, and they'd stab him in the back for a garlic candy cane!

The Clowns of America Are Mad At American Horror Story: Freak Show

Image Credit: Aniol

So did you kids watch the premier of American Horror Story: Freak Show? From the ratings to the instant renewal for a fifth season as soon as the first episode of this season debuted, safe to say many of you did. A constantly creepy and shocking show, from the tone set in this season's premier, seems the show may be set to top its former seasons with more scares and more lines they are willing to cross.

But guess who watched the premier and were not at all amused? Actual clowns. As this article in The Hollywood Reporter talks about, seems there is an actual association of clowns out there (sorry guys, but even that sounds terrifying) who want to make it so clowns are no longer represented as something people should fear.

The single scariest moment of my entire life was when I was almost dragged from the audience by clowns at a circus in Boston (they were trying to get me on stage, but I was pretty convinced they were gonna eat me), and I have felt a deep rooted fear of clowns since. Coulrophobia for you science nerds. So sorry clowns, but I am with American Horror Story on this one. You don't get any sympathy from me. And John Wayne Gacy didn't help your cause, either.

Last Week Tonight: John Oliver Dissects Our Pumpkin Spice Addiction

If you have not watched Last Week Tonight with comedian John Oliver on HBO, I can tell you that you're missing something magical. To say the man is brilliant is to still sell him short. A wonderful summary of just how bright and observant he is with his humor, take this bit he did on his show this week about America's obsession with pumpkin spiced anything between October and the end of November.

Just the simple fact that he reminds us all there is no actual pumpkin in pumpkin spice flavoring and it just sits behind the shelf at Starbucks for nine months of the year is genius enough, and it only gets better from there.

(YouTube Link)

The "five pounds of pumpkin a year" fact is pretty mind-blowing, too. I may just skip the pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, come to think of it.

Watch Adults Get Scared Silly Playing Five Nights at Freddy's

There is something deviously enjoyable about watching adults get scared. When those adults are getting scared silly by a video game, it is even better. A medium initially created to entertain kids is now terrifying adults. Most mediums don't evolve like that, and it makes me drool with anticipation at where it might go.

Buzzfeed put together this video of people playing the point-and-click horror game, Five Nights At Freddy's, but they also throw in a twist around the 1:18 mark. I don't like to spoil things, so I wont say much, but it involves a grown man dressed in "furry" costume.

Now you KNOW you wanna watch it.

(YouTube Link)

By the way, to play the game yourself, click here. Just beware, it is like being stuck at a Chuck-E-Cheese after hours while on LSD. It is genuinely creepy.

Flamin' Hot Cheetos Bagels


(Photo: The Buffalo News)

Flamin' Hot Cheetos and bagels! Like pickled pigs' feet and jelly-filled donuts, they're two foods that naturally belong together. Now they are finally united, thanks to Allison Ewing of the BreadHive bakery in Buffalo, New York. Or perhaps the credit properly belongs to a 10-year old who proposed it while hanging out in the bakery. Andrew Z. Galarneau writes for the Buffalo News:

“She was supervising, and asking questions, and eating Flamin' Hot Cheetos,” said BreadHive’s Allison Ewing. "She said, 'You should put these on a bagel.' ” […]

They crushed a bag of the alarmingly crimson processed snacks, and dipped the ready-to bake bagels in them, instead of using organic garlic or one of the usual toppings. They found that the crumbs stay crispy for a few hours, and crisp up again if you toast the bagel.

Five Science Stunts Using Dry Ice

YouTube Link

Grant Thompson, a/k/a The King of Random, seems to have a "thing" for dry ice. He even used it to do an ALS challenge video earlier this year (and burned himself in the process). His particular dry ice passion/pathology continues in this video, as he messes around with the stuff five different ways (and utters a "don't try this at home" for several of them). -Via Science Dump

This Table Looks Like a Naturally-Formed Sheet of Ice

Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher designed this beautiful table which they call the Liquid Glacial Table. The transparent acrylic is carefully molded to have a flat surface for practical use, but a rippled interior to create the impression that it's a sheet of ice supported by icicles.

Hadid and Schumacher made a coffee table and a dining table version. The latter splits into two tables with a combined length of 17.5 feet. It would be ideal for Elsa's ice palace.

Choose Your Priorities

(Doghouse Diaries)

This chart is a bit inaccurate. If you choose children, then you don't get time or money. Or at least I didn't. And I wouldn't change my decision for anything.

The artist adds this caveat:

Exceptions to the rule include, but are not limited to, robbing a bank, building a time machine, or having imaginary children.

113-Year Old Woman Fakes Her Age to Get on Facebook


(Photo: KARE--warning: auto-play video)

It's been a while since Anna Stoehr, 113, of Plainview, Minnesota has been carded. Just shy of 114, she decided to sign up for Facebook. That's when she ran into problems.

You have to be at least 13 to be on Facebook. But the maximum age Facebook accepts is 99. So Ms. Stroehr lied about her age and claimed to be 14 years younger than she really is in order to sign up. A Verizon salesman helped her get set up:

Joseph Ramireza was selling an iPhone to Stoehr's 85-year-old son, who started talking about his mother. Ramireza said he had to meet her.

"She's become something of a kindred spirit," Ramireza told KARE.

He's helped her use FaceTime to video chat with friends on an iPad and has been teaching her to use email and Google search.

Woodkopf: The New Czech Sport of Board Dueling


(Photo: Unie Woodkopf)

You have a wooden board balanced on your head. So does your opponent. Your task is to knock his board off without losing your own. You may do so only by hitting his board with your own.


(Video Link)

So do you have what it takes to be a woodkopf champion? This sport, which is named “wood head,” began in 1992 at a cultural festival in Prague. It’s now an emerging sport with regulation boards that measure 200x16x2 centimeters and weigh between 3 and 4 kilograms. If you knock down your opponent’s board twice, then you win the match.

Cunning Football Play Tricks Opposing Team


(Video Link)

Hebron High School of Carrollton, Texas faced off against Allen High School of Allen, Texas. Hebron pulled off an elaborate trick play. Like a good stage magician, the team distracted its opponents by drawing their attention to the center of the field.

Meanwhile, one player ambled over to the sideline, apparently to talk to a coach. But he remained inbound and thus still in play. Hebron kicked the ball down the field, which was recovered by the player near the sideline.

Referees called the play an illegal shift, so it wasn’t accepted. But it was a commendably clever attempt.

Rare Celebrity Candid Shots

James Dean and Sammy Davis, Jr. | Image: georgejournal.org

These rare, celebrity candids (with a few impromptu poses in natural situations) are unusual in that many of the shots catch personalities in groups or pairs that the public doesn't typically associate together. Like the photo above, they are refreshing in their spontaneous, informal feel. They evoke reflection of a simpler time, in which Photoshop and unrealistic standards of beauty and body image for both sexes weren't yet the norm.

This Japanese Apartment Complex Will Be The Perfect Place To Trick-Or-Treat

There’s a fun new apartment complex being built in Osaka, Japan that will be the ultimate place to go trick-or-treating when construction is done, a complex the builders should just go ahead and call Halloween Town. 

(Image Link)

The complex is supposed to bring a sense of fairy tale wonder to the town of Hamamatsu, and so there's no mistaking that it's being built with Halloween in mind there are jack-o-lanterns and black cats on many of the roofs.

These whimsical buildings look like a fun and magical place to live, and a total nightmare to upkeep and repair, but it should attract plenty of Halloweenie tenants when construction finishes up just in time for Halloween next year.

Every Customer Service Call

YouTube Link

Have you made a call to a large corporation in the last... oh... two to fifteen years and had a positive experience in which you were waited on promptly without a number of transfers and without having to repeat the same information ad nauseam? Did the employees seem to want to resolve the issue about which you were calling? Yes? Do you have four legs, a silky mane and a single, pointed horn growing out of the top of your head? I thought as much. (NSFW language) -Via Viral Viral Videos
