A Guide To Recognizing Your Bread Cats



This handy, and adorable, illustrated chart will help you identify those pesky bread cats that have been hanging around your back door meowing their yeasty little heads off.

I don't know why but I find the idea of a cream horn cat to be quite disgusting, and I have a feeling that the rising dough cat isn't going to make it out of the oven in one piece!

The original artwork by Brittney Sabo and Britt Hammerberg is available for sale as an art print. Link  --via TDW

Andrew W.K.'s Cheesy Custom Guitar



What could possibly make Andrew W.K.'s already cheesy persona even cheesier? A custom made guitar that looks like a big ol' sloppy slice of NYC pizza pie, that's what!

Andrew built and painted the guitar as an homage to one of his fav foods, and he made sure to include his favorite topping on the pizza- jalapenos.

That's one spicy slice of rock n roll memorabilia!

Animated Short - D.A.D. Digital Amusement Device


(YouTube Link)

Here's an adorable animated short about D.A.D., a digital amusement device who has a lot in common with human fathers, aside from the telescoping arms and antenna on top of his head.

I really liked this cutie pie of a short, and I think animator Mark Osberg should consider making it into an ongoing web series!

Adorable Animated Short - OZO


(Vimeo Link)

This neat animated short is called OZO, and it was created by a group of talented animation students from France.

It blends traditional and 3d animation into a delightful story that seems like it would make a great TV series, and it's so cute it'll give you dimples!

Water Flavored Alcoholic Beverage



This carbonated alcoholic water beverage called Air might be the future of booze, or else it's a really bad idea.

It's made to be tasteless, created with a malt fermentation process that renders it odorless, tasteless and colorless, so nobody will know that you're getting your drink on.

Thankfully, Air only has 4% alcohol, so it's unlikely to be used against you by your neighborhood practical joker.

Mind Blowing Optical Illusion Art Installation



These art installations were created by Regina Silveira as a surefire way to blow the minds of all in attendance.

This Brazilian born artist has a way of making the senses reel, with simple linework and perspective tricks that really suck the viewer into the piece.

I hope she doesn't crack very many bottles of wine at her shows, or someone might get sick on one of her works!

Terrifying Baby-Laughs-A-Lot Encounter


(YouTube Link)

Let this video serve as a warning- don't let Baby-Laughs-A-Lot's batteries run low, or she will not be happy little plastic girl.

This encounter with a darkly dying doll is the reason some people believe their old toys are haunted, and I sure as heck wouldn't want to run into this doll in a dark alley.

I know this video is a few years old, but if you've never seen this doll possession video it's new to you!

Awesome Mixed Media Works By Zach Johnsen



These fascinating mixed media works are by Zach Johnsen, a guy who figured out a fun way to add a new dimension to his artwork- by painting on contour cut pieces of wood.

I love the theatrical look of Zach's installations, they make attending a gallery show feel like taking a trip thru a theme park ride!

Graph Paper Inspired Drawing Exercise



This illustrated sheet is both a drawing exercise and a fun cast of square characters, created by Dan Meth to:
Combine the looseness of tiny ink doodles with the underlying order of graph paper.

This extremely square technique yields interesting results, and seems like a good way to get people thinking outside the box about character designs.

Circular Graphic Representations Of Over 100 Years Of Sports



Are you looking for a way to boil down over a hundred years of professional sports championships into colorful, disc shaped statistical diagrams?

Well, look no further than these exciting and colorful sports stat discs created by Deroy Peraza from Hyperakt.

They reduce virtually every sports championship since 1903 into easy to digest colored pie pieces,  and they're way more fun to look at than the actual championship games!

Animated Short - Bhavri


(Vimeo Link)

This cute little animated short is called Bhavri, and it was lovingly created by animation student Sonia Tiwari.

It's an aesthetically pleasing and colorful tale of life and death, and I love the combination of flash 2d and 3d animation.

Strange Dissection Murals By Nychos



Nychos is a street artist who knows his way around the inside of his subjects.

His dissection murals cut down a cast of colorful characters, baring it all so that passersby can gawk at what lies inside.

So, you get a colorful work of street art and an anatomy lesson every time you spot a work by Nychos!

Whimsical Anatomical Works By Troels Carlsen



Multimedia artist Troels Carlsen knows just what to do to spice up those boring old medical illustrations- add whimsical accessories and cutouts which bring a tongue in cheek element to the dissected view of some guy's head.

Troels mixed media works are simple and understated, making those grisly human anatomy diagrams fun again.

Here's The Firefly Reunion Panel From Comic Con


(YouTube Link)

In case you care about seeing the hour long Firefly reunion panel from Comic Con, some geek samaritan has uploaded it to YouTube in five bite sized parts.

The sound is surprisingly good for a fan shot video, and I was kinda bummed about not being able to see it for myself, but now I'm glad I didn't wait in line for six plus hours just to see this panel.

Browncoats unite, and watch this five part documentation of geek history!

Surreal Superhero Art By Tim MacLean



Okay, so these paintings by Tim MacLean are only strange in character shape and appearance, the message they convey about modern superheroes being representations of ancient myths is pretty straightforward.

That being said, these are some incredibly cool pieces of pop art! They're colorful, the caricatures are fun and they don't all have a superhero as the subject, there's a Doctor Who in there too!

Awesome Dark Knight Rises 3D Street Art



In a perfectly appropriate form of movie promotion, this awesome work of 3d street art was created to celebrate the release of The Dark Knight Rises in Madrid.

The Bane of my existence would be if some Joker thought about Robin the world of this fabulous street art by acting like a Two-Face and ruining this piece with a Deathstroke!

A Collection Of Awkward Pregnancy Photos



Proud mothers-to-be please take note- awkwardly staged photos are even more awkward when there's a baby lump in your tummy!

The pics in this gallery are sure to make babies wish they were never born, and when they're old enough to recognize how incredibly awkward these prenatal photos really are they'll probably sue their parents for emancipation!

Thankfully, Claycat is here to enchant our eyeballs with goofy scenes of horrific clay-on-clay violence.

Watch this feline clump of plastilina take on the Evil Dead....part 2 even!

Seemingly Functional Cardboard Sculptures



These intricately designed cardboard sculptures were created by Bartek Eisner, a man who knows how to turn sheets of cardboard into stuff you might need around the house, like an AK-47, a fireplace and a chainsaw.

On the flipside, Bartek makes cardboard objects that he then integrates into the urban landscape, like a fully non-functioning security camera, or a bird that will never poop on your head.

These pieces are really cool looking, just don't get any ideas about cutting down trees with that cardboard chainsaw!

A Japanese Version Of Russian Roulette


(YouTube Link)

Traditional Russian Roulette has one major element which tends to prevent repeat play- someone usually takes a bullet in the head.

This Japanese adaptation of the game won't kill you, it'll only sting a little when the thumbtack sticks in your head.

That's right, simply attach a thumbtack to the front of a Nerf dart and you've got one hell of a way to put your eye out!

The Perfect Popcorn Tub For Horror Movie Night



This horrific holder of buttery popcorn kernels was created by an ad agency for the Detroit horror convention Motor City Nightmares, but I think they should start giving them out wherever scary flicks and extremely overpriced snacks collide.

This severed head tub would also make a handy holder for - strawberry Jell0, spaghetti, or beef jerky by the pound. Mmmmm...brain food!

This Torture Device Is Truly Kafka-Esque



I'm not sure if the person who built the Harrow, a device imagine by Franz Kafka in his seminal work The Penal Colony, meant for it to be an art installation or an actual torture machine, but either way it looks soooo Kafka-esque.

Don't you hate when people say things are Kafka-esque?

I do too, but this thing is actually inspired by Kafka, so it's one of the only objects ever built which can be correctly identified as being Kafka-esque.

Give Your Car That Disney Parks Smell



There are certain smells which you expect to greet your nostrils with delight every time you go to a Disney Park- turkey legs roasting, waffles, candy apples and popcorn.

Now you can take the iconic smells from Disney Parks with you wherever you go, courtesy of these rather blah looking air fresheners!

Something tells me that roasted turkey isn't going to be a top seller, especially during the summer, and the other scents would have me hitting the drive thru all day long!

Don't Get On Mr. Wizard's Bad Side


(YouTube Link)

I have such fond memories of Mr. Wizard's show from the early 80s that watching this supercut made me want to do a little science fair magic project of my own.

And then I realized that Mr. Wizard could be a bit of a condescending jerk at times, and he would've made me want to hide in the closet because my project was so disappointing.

Please, Mr. Wizard, don't blind me with your science!

Strange Metal Sculptures By Tilman Hornig



It's hard to make heads or tails of Tilman Hornig's metal sculptures.

Some pieces look like the shed skin of a serpentine Tin Man, others look like industrial pieces found in a post-apocalyptic cityscape.

All have something visually compelling about them, drawing the eyes to those deadly sharp folds in the bent metal.

Is Chewing This Piece Of Rubber The Same As Brushing Your Teeth?



This spiky piece of rubber that resembles a sea anemone is the Rolly, a product that claims to be just as effective as giving your teeth a good brushing when you're on the go.

Here's how it works:
Besides reaching into every nook and cranny of your mouth, and gently stimulating your gums while you chew it, the Rolly contains Xylitol and Fluoride which are claimed to fight plaque and strengthen tooth enamel. And using the small disc doesn't require toothpaste, a mirror, or even water to rinse your mouth out afterwards. When you're done, you just spit it into the garbage like a piece of gum.

It looks like a scary little squid creature to me, but if it works I guess I'd give it a go. Would you?
