'Strange Wonderful' By Stephanie Swart

One of the great things about animation is that everyone has their own unique style, both in terms of character/background design and the movement found within their work, so you never know what you’re gonna get when you check out an indie animator’s keyframed creation.

However, this animated short by Stephanie Swart kinda gives you a hint about what to expect right there in the title- Strange Wonderful.

(Video Link)

This surreal short is certainly strange, and very sketchy in places, but the understated storyline shows that embracing the strange can be a wonderful, albeit somewhat lonely, experience.

The Guide To Spoiler Etiquette

(Video Link)

Navigating the internet without being exposed to spoilers can sometimes seem like an impossible mission, especially if you’re a passionate fan who genuinely hates to have your favorite media ruined for you by uncaring users/article writers.

So what actually constitutes a spoiler? Are some people being a bit too touchy about spoilers, or do they have a valid argument?

Screen Junkies host Hal Rudnick tackles this touchy subject with the help of actor Steve Byrne, journalist Devin Faraci, and Screen Junkies own Dan Murrell.

They discuss spoiler boundaries and try to put together a "spoiler bill of rights", tune in and see if you agree with their spoiler rules.

A Colorful Guide To The Worst Viruses In Computer History

Exploring the history of computer viruses tends to make readers a bit paranoid, especially if they’ve been struck by one of these malicious programs in the past.

But if you’re curious about the dark side of computing you can explore the ghosts of viruses past, complete with awesome graphic addition, at the Computer Virus Catalog, “an illustrated guide to the worst viruses in computer history”.

There you can read about the LSD virus, a DOS based virus that "overwrites all the files in the current directory and then displays a druggy video effect", or the Madman virus, a DOS virus that infects .exe files- "Whenever you hit CTRL-ALT-DEL the virus displays an ASCII picture of an angry red-faced amigo. Hit your keyboard again and the virus displays the creepy message: 'Nothing can save you here, friend - you're in my world now!'_"

For some this site will be informative, but for those who practically live on their computers (like I do) this information makes for a downright terrifying read! *shivers*

French Girls App Shows Young Selfie Takers a New Mirror




"Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes"

Ah, the age-old wisdom of the Butthole Surfers. Such a hard truth. Yet there is an app called "French Girls" that lets you know how you look in the eyes of an anonymous "artist."

According to the developers, the application's name is a reference to Kate Winslet's line in Titanic, in which she instructs Leonardo DiCaprio's character to "draw me like one of your French girls."

Application users upload selfies and wait to receive a drawing of their photo from the perspective of another anonymous user. The app is popular — presumably with the younger set — with over one million downloads to date. They may not know how they look to others, but apparently it doesn't stop them from trying.

Lovable Lynx Living Large




This Canada lynx kitten named Jasper seems to be having a ball at the Point Defiance Zoo, between the love he gets from keepers and admirers and his fondness for play. The nine-week-old kitten weighs approximately four pounds and is being hand-reared by zoo staff.

The Canada lynx is native to North America, specifically to Canada, Alaska and the northernmost parts of the United States. Adults of the species weigh 18 to 24 pounds on average and measure 19 to 22 inches in height. 

The lynx is typically a solitary animal, although it may occasionally roam in small groups. The lynx roams anywhere from 1.5 to 3 miles per day. As they take shelter in areas of dense forest, they usually stay close to the treeline, however they generally like to swim. One researcher recorded a lynx swimming two miles across the Yukon River.

Traditional Scottish Food: Deep Fried Mars Bars


(Photo: unknown)

Scotland is a land of refined tastes and thoughtfully-developed food traditions. (My ancestors were Scottish, so I know of what I speak.) Among their inventions are those now famous pillars of haute cuisine: haggis and Scotch eggs.

Yet the Scottish people are not the type to rest on their laurels. Among their more recent inventions is the deep fried Mars Bar. A 2012 article in BBC News describes how this culinary marvel has emerged from the fish and chip shops of Scotland:

Ahmed at Neptune's on Duke Street refuses to fry chocolate bars because "it turns the oil black and oil is very expensive."

But Mustapha from Denis's takeaway on the High Street is happy to oblige. He says he will deep-fry anything.

"That's my job", he says.

That's the spirit!

Mustapha says he sells one or two deep-fried Mars bars a day - more when the students are back at the nearby Strathclyde University residences.

He takes a Mars bar from the shelf, unwraps it, dips it in the same batter he uses for the fish and throws it in the fryer. A couple of minutes later he presents a soggy chocolate bar covered in batter.

The caramel squirts out when it is bitten. It is soft warm and sweet. Sickly sweet and fatty.

My Little Pony Sword

DeviantART member jablechien marked a sword with the cutie mark and traditional icon of Princess Luna, a character on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. He did so by applying acrylic paint with a toothpick.


(Image: Hasbro Studios)

Jablechien writes that he did this "for the glory of the New Lunar Republic!" This is a reference to a major body of fan fiction which places Luna (pictured above) and her sister Princess Celestia at war with each other.

My position on this as a brony: in keeping with the 34th Rule of Acquisition, stay neutral in this conflict and sell weapons to both sides.

Man Gets Arrested, Uses His One Phone Call to Order Pizza as a Prank


(Photo: ms.akr)

A man in Corbin, Kentucky was arrested on the charge of shoplifting $36 worth of beer from a convenience store. When he was brought into the police station, he asked officers if he could use his cellphone to make a call. They agreed.

The suspect then called a local Domino's Pizza and ordered five pizzas in the name of the officer who arrested him, Captain Coy Wilson.

The police learned this when a Domino's delivery driver arrived shortly thereafter with five pizzas for "Officer Wilson."

Now the suspect is facing additional charges of "theft by deception, identity theft and impersonating an officer."

Angry Ram Attacks Motorcyclist Over And Over Again

Animals generally aren’t fond of those noisy vehicles we humans love to ride around, and when they’re not scared of the noisy device they’re steaming mad at its very presence:

(Video Link)

This angry animal reaction to motor vehicles was captured by New Zealander Marty Todd on his GoPro HD Hero3+ camera, as an angry ram that lives on his property attacks him repeatedly while he tries to ride his dirtbike.

The ram was clearly not impressed by Marty’s sweet bike, and seemed unfazed by the fact that the entire incident was filmed from both Marty and the ram's point of view, but I guess even rams have issues with road rage!

Ninja Versus Apocalypse, With Zombies

Ask some people who would win in the battle of ninja versus (insert noun here) and the ninja will always come out on top.

There’s something about those masked martial artists that makes them really popular despite their murderous inclinations, and they seem virtually invincible when you see them on the big screen:

(Video Link)

Well, they’re definitely destructible, as the video series Daily Ninja proves by throwing them out in front of oncoming traffic, or in the path of a shorebound ferry:

(Video Link)

The wacky video series was created to help promote the upcoming release of Ninja Apocalypse, a post apocalyptic flick directed by Lloyd Lee Barnett that has something to do with magic, ninjas and zombies, not necessarily in that order:

Star Trek With Camera Shake Removed - Turn Down For What Edition

The original Star Trek show was filmed when all effects were practical, as opposed to digitally created special effects, and adding camera shake meant literally shaking the camera.

Star Trek: The Next Generation was made in the late 80s/early 90s, when digital effects were more widely used in television productions, so effects like camera shake were digitally added in post-production, with a little help from the actors, of course:

(Video Link)

Nowadays digital effects make it easy to simulate camera shake via software, but when you use the same software to remove the camera shake effect you're left with nothing but amazing performances.

Add the catchy DJ Snake and Lil Jon track "Turn Down For What" to those performances and you've got pure comedy gold on your hands, courtesy of some dude named Danny Rogers and his mashup "Turn Down For Spock".

Thor Is About To Become A Disney Princess

The mighty God of Thunder has undergone some changes over the years, from new looks and new attitudes to that time Loki turned him into a frog, but now Thor’s about to go where many male characters in the Marvel Universe have gone before- full blown female.

It’s quite refreshing to see Thor in this light, and just like when Loki took over the body of Sif for a minute these guys don’t lose a bit of their mighty attitudes when exploring their feminine side.

The only problem with this transformation is spelled out in this tweet:

And you thought Mulan and Merida were tough!

Pop Culture in Pen and Ink

Artist Rik Reimert has an impressive array of celebrity portraits on his website. The simplicity of his crosshatch pen and ink drawings does not lessen their intensity; on the contrary, it seems to enhance it. And simplicity is something that the artist wholeheartedly embraces. Reimert briefly explains his thought process behind his choice of media:

"Analog, that’s my thing. From music to photographs to art. Yes, of course we use computers and cellphones, but isn’t it great to put on a record on your turntable on a Sunday morning and just enjoy the cracks in the music and the great artwork on the cover? That’s why I chose pen and paper."

Visit Reimert's website to see more of his drawings or to request a commissioned piece. Connect with him through social media on FacebookTwitterInstagramGoogle+ and Pinterest. Via 22 Words.

Essential Traffic Sign in Helsinki

Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Toilet Lid

No worries: he will not be permanently damaged. The Empire will compensate you if he dies. At least, until Jabba sits on him. That probably voids any warranty offered by eBay seller derbycovers, a maker of custom toilet lids. This airbrushed wood lid shows Captain Solo's full horror at the sight of you naked.

Pop Up Restaurant In Tokyo Serves Food Shaped Like Pikachu

When Ash and his friends travel the world trying to catch all the Pokemon they can they're not hunting for their dinner, and most Pokemon don't look like they'd make for a very good meal.

However, a new pop up restaurant in Tokyo, Japan seems to think one particular Pokemon looks good enough to eat, and they're serving up colorful dishes shaped like Ash's pal Pikachu:

You won't find Lightning Rat Stew on their menu, just friendly faced food like the Pika Burger, the Pika Parfait, and the totally tasty Pika Rump Dumpling:

The Pikachu Cafe was created to promote the upcoming Pokemon the movie XY, and they'll be serving up these cute culinary critter shaped courses until August 31st, so if you're in Japan catch 'em while you can!
