Japanese Cosplayers Who Strive For Maximum Accuracy

(Image Via kasumi_s2461)

Cosplay has evolved from faithful adaptation to original creations by cosplayers that make their way into the pages of comic books, the students truly having become the masters.

Creativity is key, and there’s plenty of room for interpretation in the cosplay world, and yet there are many cosplayers who strive to look exactly like the original work that inspired their costume.

Japanese cosplayers have been posting side-by-side comparison shots to Twitter, showing off how close they can come to looking like the source material, and needless to say they nailed it!

High Speed Photos Of People Emerging From A Waterslide

There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues quite like taking a dip in the pool, and when the doggy paddling grows tiresome folks head to a good old fashioned water park for some water based thrills and spills.

Those who brave the waterslides normally don’t care much about commemorating their experience with a photo, but maybe they would if those souvenir shots looked like the delightful pics in Krista Long's series “I Love Summer”.

Each high speed shot depicts a slider emerging from the slide in their own unique way- some shoot out like old pros, while others flail their way back into the pool, looking like they barely escaped the slide with their lives.

It’s fun in the sun for your eyeballs!

37 Things You Probably Didn't Know About San Diego

(Image Via Port of San Diego)

There’s a lot more to San Diego than Comic-Con, surfing and a world famous Zoo- S.D. is a town with a long military history, a rich cultural history that we share with Mexico, and plenty of Old West flavor around every corner.

San Diego has been called "the birthplace of California", and former mayor Pete Wilson once called it America’s Finest City, a title that has stuck around because San Diegans are proud of their beautiful city.

Whether you’re curious about the home of Comic-Con, thinking about taking a sunny beachside vacation, or want to know more about the city that made Ron Burgundy a top rated newsman you should read this highly informative article entitled 37 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About San Diego.

(Image Via Dan DeChiaro)

A few facts they left off the list- Dennis Hopper lived in San Diego as a teenager, attending Grossmont and Helix high school from 1950-54, and our very own mascot The San Diego Chicken made The Sporting News list of the Top 100 Most Powerful People in Sports of the 20th Century, alongside Muhammed Ali and Babe Ruth. Not bad for a giant chicken!

'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*

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!

Six Ways Movies Are Wrong About Space

Space is still the final frontier for us earthbound human beings, and our fascination with what awaits humanity in the largely unexplored cosmos is still going strong. 

Movies have brought this cosmic interest back time and time again, most recently with the film Gravity, proving that people still can’t get enough of movies set in space.

Chris Hadfield is an astronaut who knows a thing or two about outer space, and he’s sick and tired of watching movies that seem to get space wrong every time.

Chris says space will kill you in mundane ways, like when Luca Parmitano came close to drowning in space when his water supply leaked into his helmet, but going to the bathroom in space is awesome, which is something they never show in the movies, for obvious reasons.

He shared these factoids and more with Cracked in 6 Ways Movies Get Space Wrong, and (spoiler alert!) Hollywood movies are typically all wrong about space!

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!

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.

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:

Historic Gravesite Lies In The Middle Of The Road

There’s a woman who was laid to rest almost two hundred years ago in Amity, Indiana, yet continues to have a physical presence in her town to this day. 

A woman whose grave splits highway traffic in two, serving as a reminder of how an armed loved one can preserve your legacy for generations to come:

(Image Via JBense)

Her name is Nancy Kerlin Barnett, and her grave is now a historical landmark that was initially supposed to be paved over during the creation of County Road 400, but the road workers were so afraid of the site that they split the lanes and paved around her grave:

(Image Via Graveyard Girl)

Some think the workers were deathly afraid of her ghost, or that superstition kept them from paving over the site, but the truth is they were most likely just terrified of Nancy's grandson, who camped out with a shotgun to make sure the site wasn't disturbed.

She may not be able to see the motorized carriages whizzing by her middle-of-the-road resting place, but Nancy''s legacy lives on as an odd piece of local lore for the folks who live around Amity, Indiana.

The World Of Futurama Beautifully Rendered In 3D

Futurama was presented to our eyeballs via image projection devices that only transmit two dimensional visuals, and even though the projected images are strictly reruns these days there is still a lot of fan love out there for the Adventures of the Galaxy Express gang.

If those image projection devices were able to transmit the show’s visual code in 3D it probably would have looked a lot like these amazing CGI Futurama visualizations by Alexy Zakharov, with lots of fine details and shiny bits.

(Video Link)

But since the show was created by Matt Groening, a guy who appreciates the value of super flat characters, two dimensional character art was a given.

The fine humanoids who worked on the show rendered the buildings, vehicles, and some of the space effects in 3D, using a technique called Toon Shading to make the 3D models look more like 2D drawings, but their CGI looked nothing like Alexy's incredibly realistic version of Futurama!

The Dark Side Of Life As A Street Magician

(Image Via Wikimedia Commons)

Ever since Criss Angel hit the street magic scene, in his bedhead, bedazzled shirts and mascara, people have begun to see street magicians as less edge and more Hollywood.

But the life of street magician isn’t all rhinestones and flash, and to survive the streets you need more than sleight of hand and a deck of cards.

A brave busker named Matthew Collins revealed 5 Hidden Dark Sides of Life as a Street Magician to Cracked, five things he learned the hard way while working the mean streets of Savannah, Georgia.

Matthew’s cautionary tales range from muggings and physical assaults to heartwarming bits about what kept him going as a street magician, tales that will give you a better idea of what that guy trying to guess your card on the sidewalk deals with to make a buck.

Ten-Year-Old Girl Left A Scathing Review Of Cinderella Themed Restaurant

(Image Via Orlando-Florida.net)

Contrary to popular belief, not every young girl is obsessed with Disney princesses, some have moved on to more mature interests, like fine dining and world travel, and these girls simply aren’t impressed by Disney royalty.

One such unimpressed ten-year-old left a scathing one star review on TripAdvisor after visiting Cinderella’s Royal Table restaurant in Walt Disney World because she wasn’t there to get a pic with Cinderella and Prince Charming- she was there for the “highly recommended” menu.

(Image Via Brasil VIP)

She was appalled when the Prince and Princess insisted on a photo, mortified when the waiter tried to hand her a kid’s menu full of chicken nugget level fare, and downright irate when her dinner arrived “cold and relatively tasteless”.

And here’s how she felt about the clientele and staff:

"Let it be said that the entire time we spent there, [there] were little children running around screaming and yelling, chasing the princesses, and hitting each other with the little plastic wands."

"the experience was not what was expected and was a complete madhouse with a lackluster staff. Save your money and go to basically anywhere else in WDW."

Don't get on that little girl's bad side Disney, or Mickey Mouse is next!

5 Nerdy Ways To Beat The Summer Heat

Infographic Shows How Much Underwear To Pack For A Trip

There’s one very important thing to consider when packing for a trip, whether it’s a weekend away or an extended stay, and that’s making sure you've packed enough underwear.

Good thing there’s this handy infographic created by well traveled traveler Reed Kennedy, so you can make sure your buns are covered for the entire trip.

Simply figure out how many days you’ll be away, and whether you’ll be doing any laundry while traveling, and this handy infographic will tell you how many pairs to bring along.

It may seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised how many people find themselves briefless in Seattle, a pair of boxers short in Brooklyn, or thongless in Thailand when they're trying to travel light.

New Trailer For Blade Runner Created Using Anime Clips

Blade Runner is such an amazing and beloved film that it just wouldn’t be right to bring it back with a new cast and cutting edge CGI effects because it looks amazing just the way it is, but if you're going to give it new life you have to recreate it as an animated feature.

(Video Link)

YouTuber Chris Kessler agrees, and he put together a trailer using clips from various anime series like Bubblegum Crisis and AD Police, with audio from Blade Runner, which is quite entertaining to watch and Blade Runner-y in all the right places.

If Hollywood filmmakers would stop turning cartoons into live action movies and flip the adaptation process around we might see some animated remakes of movies like Blade Runner that'll be worthy of those high box office prices!

Photo Series Shows Animals Eating Their Prey- Food Chain

It’s almost unbearable to watch some humans shovel food into their faces, and we may even call those who make a huge mess or smack loudly while they eat "animals", but watching messy humans eat can’t even compare to the disgusting way most animals devour their prey:

Photographer Catherine Chalmers is fascinated by the different ways animals eat their prey, so she created a photo series entitled Food Chain to show us how much more disturbing meal time can be.

Here's a bit of what Catherine has to say about her delicious photo series:

The project grew out of a desire to be more engaged with the natural world. Over time, I became fascinated by the strange disconnect between what people seem to want to believe happens in nature and what actually does. Humans are incredibly efficient killers, yet we are remarkably queasy at facing, or acknowledging, what we do. I’m an omnivore. Eating a chicken running around the yard is an ecologically sustainable thing to do. But supporting the industrial feedlot system of mass produced chickens, for example, is gross and distressing. I try to eat in a way that is easy on the planet. Unfortunately, though, there is really no innocence in eating. Something dies for us to live.

Buy My Barina

It looks like the maker of this video took notes from Castor, the Swedish art director we recently featured who created an epic video to help sell his old 93 Volvo Wagon, but the creator of Buy My Barina decided to go for less comedy and more slick, modern and sexy:

(Video Link)

The 99 Barina is like the Ford Fiesta of Australia, and generally not thought of as a very sexy car, but somehow the mysterious man behind Buy My Barina has succeeded in bringing the sex appeal to the little league helmet of cars.

What's more- he's auctioning off this hot little blue number for charity, with proceeds benefitting Cancer Council Australia, and whoever wins the car is going to get tired of explaining why they spent so much money on such a crappy car!
