Awesome Maleficent Wall Mount



This is one of the coolest wall mount sculptures I've ever seen, and the artist has really captured the spirit of Disney villain Maleficent in her fiery dragon form.

It was created by Dan Reeder of Paper Mache blog, and yes that means this amazing piece is made out of paper!

Add some LED lights for a cool glowing mouth and eyes effect and you have a dragon wall mount worthy of display in a brave warrior's abode.

Skateboard Deck Ceiling Fan



Here's a fun idea in home improvement that would actually make a pretty cool DIY project for the skateboard obsessed in your life.

The folks at Notcot's Experimental Studio came up with this great idea- with just a few drilled holes, and maybe a coat of paint, your fan can McTwist the day away on skateboard blades and still provide a good breeze.

Abandoned Section Of Detroit May Become Zombie Theme Park



Parts of Detroit already seem like a scary place to visit, but add a zombie theme park and you've got a nightmare in the making.

Entrepreneur Mark Siwak feels that a zombie themed adventure might be just the thing to revitalize abandoned sections of Detroit, but to me it just sounds like a bad idea leading up to one hell of a lawsuit.

And what's up with the childlike scribbles they're calling concept art? I guess Mark's kids are helping out with the development phase of Z-World Detroit.

Animated Ode To YouTube Commenters


(YouTube Link)

This goofy animated short captures the statements made by archetypal YouTube commenters, and the state of their lives, rather perfectly.

Meet the colorful cast of characters who make the comments you love to hate as you wait for your video to load.

The only problem with this video - these guys are tame compared to the real thing!

(Barely NSFW due to one word)

Bizarre Nylon Sculptures By Rosa Verloop



These bizarre nylon sculptures are created by using a fairly simple technique which has some rather spectacular results.

Artist Rosa Verloop uses regular old stockings and turns them into bizarre caricatures by squishing, molding, shaping and straight pinning the nylons into place.

I want to yell at the work pictured above so it'll stop LOOKING AT ME like that! *shakes fist*

Surreal Short Film - Sarah


(Vimeo Link)

This dark little mini flick seems like an ad for a short film rather than a film in its own right.

That being said, Sarah is moody, compelling and combines audio and video to maximum effect.

And if you can't spare a minute of your life to watch a weird short film then stop being so busy all the time!

The Cat Who Hates On The Spot News Reports


(YouTube Link)

Be forewarned-Try and film an on location piece in this angry kitty's territory and he will take down your silly little news program, one reporter at a time.

This reporter is lucky that she caught him on a good day, or else he would have shredded her blouse to smithereens on live television.

Perhaps he went easy on her because she's a cat lover? She certainly doesn't seem fazed by the fact that a sinister cat has interrupted her precious news broadcast.

Or maybe that's what she was planning all along....*cue suspenseful music*

FLIP, The Ocean Vessel That Can Stay Afloat Vertically



This is FLIP, an ocean vessel that can actually flip on its side and keep on a-floatin'.  FLIP even has two sets of interior furnishings for long term floating in either position.

The Floating Instrument Platform is celebrating 50 years of staying afloat no matter what the high seas throws at it.

Hit the Laughing Squid link below if you're interested in reading more about this amazing vehicle and FLIP ON!

Warped Sculptures Of Characters From Wonderland



These wicked cool sculptures were created by multimedia artist Mark James Porter, a guy who has clearly spent some time with his head in the clouds above Wonderland.

His Cheshire Cat, complete with realistic teeth, looks great alongside a White Rabbit with a clock body, a cracked up version of Humpty Dumpty and a figure called the "Dance Of The Hanged Men".

These are truly kooky works of sculptural art, and I love each and every one of 'em!

Try Not To Lose Your Mind While Watching This Slit-Scan Video


(YouTube Link)

Slit-scan is a form of video processing that results in some rather mind blowing effects. Here's how it's done:
1. record a video of your action
2. extract each frame as an individual image (the opposite to what you would do for a time lapse)
3. extract a vertical single pixel wide line from each image (for example a line from the center)
4. stack those lines horizontally from left to right to form an actual "slit scan" image

Sounds easier than sitting through an entire slit-scan video!

And I know that this video is about a year old, but if you haven't seen it before it's new to you!

Kansas City Parking Garage Transformed Into Giant Bookshelf



Here's a fun way to make a parking garage look like less of an eyesore-paint it over to look like a giant bookshelf, housing classic novels such as The Invisible Man, The Lord Of The Rings and....Silent Springs? How did that one get in there?

Oh I see, the townsfolk of Kansas City voted on which classic works of literature would appear on the parking garage wall.

I guess KC is lucky that a giant copy of 50 Shades Of Gray didn't end up on the shelf!

How To Create A Fire Tornado In Your Own Backyard


(YouTube Link)

This video demonstrates a rather simple way to create a fire tornado right in your own backyard, so please keep your drunken friends from getting their hands on this video.

Fire tornado is so pretty, so deadly, so.....flamey! It's the next best thing to having the natural version sweep through your yard and singe off your eyebrows!

Cardboard Children's Furniture



Japanese company Tsuchinoco produces whimsical children's furniture made out of corrugated cardboard panels, perfect for the playroom of a kid who's a bit rough on the furniture.

Their furniture kind of looks like a three day weekend DIY project, or something that belongs on the shelves at IKEA, but the fun shapes and rough edged style make these pieces simply delightful.

Art Reproductions Made Using Torn Up Magazines



These reproductions of famous paintings take collage art to a whole new level of cool, and demonstrate a good use for all the magazines piling up in the corner of the living room.

They were created by Vik Muniz, a Brooklyn based artist whose passion is hacking up the printed page with scissors and gluing the bits together to make pretty pictures, reconstructing disposable magazines into something timeless.

It's a beautiful mess, with minute details only visible in the image blow up, details which show the meticulous care that went into each piece.

Animated Tribute To The Ninja Turtles


(Vimeo Link)

Animator Malcolm Sutherland pays tribute to the heroes in a half shell by letting them show you some of their sweet ninja moves, but they look like they're feeling a bit under the weather so don't stare too hard.

I would love it if they made a reboot of the Ninja Turtles TV series drawn in this style!

Video Game Themed LEGO Pixel Art By Meufer



There is something so right about pixel art being brought to life with LEGO bricks. Maybe it's the pleasant bumpiness of the bricks, or the bold colors that make the works really pop.

LEGO artist Meufer creates some bricktastic renditions of classic pixelated video game characters, and whether you see them as pieces for your wall or inspiration for your own diy project Meufer's LEGO works are undeniably cool.

Elders React To Dubstep


(YouTube Link)

This might be the most important video you'll ever see regarding dubstep music, and it proves that you're never too old to have good taste in music.

Watch as elders are subjected to Skrillex before sharing their opinions and point of view with the world.

Spoiler alert - some of them actually enjoy dubstep!

A Lamp Shade That Projects The Night Sky Onto The Ceiling



This astronomically awesome lamp shade casts the night sky across the ceiling, in case you can't go outside and see it all for yourself.

Created with the serious star gazer in mind, this piece was hand crafted by artist Anna Farkas and contains every major star, with a few thrown in for good measure and a constellation cheat sheet on the underside.

Sadly, this is an art piece and not something destined for production, so you'll just have to dream about the stars appearing on your ceiling via lampshade.

Or, better yet, grab a drill and an astronomy book and start drilling one of your own!

The New Look Of Chuck E. Cheese



Chuck E. Cheese, beloved icon of animatronic rock band pizzatainment, has been killed and replaced with the ratty little rocker you see before you.

Childhood is now dead and rolling in it's little plastic coffin, and token flavored pizza will never taste the same again.

How are they going to make a mascot costume for this guy, are they gonna throw a ratty head on some hairy scenester who doesn't get enough sun?

Or are they just going to beam him into the establishments via hologram? Maybe he's starting a new band with Tupac...

The Crooked House Of Poland



Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your computer monitor, the architects who designed Krzywy Domek, the Crooked House of Sopot, Poland are just messing with your head!

This crazy warped vision of modern architecture was created in 2004 as a unique and magical place to shop, and the fun doesn't stop when you walk through the door because the interior is just as kooky as the exterior.

Animated Music Video - Robo-Redneck


(YouTube Link)

Mike Judge is back, and this time he's directing the animated music video for Zac Brown Band's song The Wind.

The short is called "Robo-Redneck", so you know what you're in for-a kooky little cartoon full of Mike Judge's signature humor and a scifi spoof set in the deep south.

Git'er done, Robo-Redneck!

Vintage Chinese Firecracker Label Art



The delightful artwork found on these vintage Chinese firecracker labels almost makes the contents seem even more fun, but that's impossible right? More fun than fireworks, no way!

Now that I think about it some of these labels are a bit scary, so maybe the art is meant to serve as a warning against playing around with fireworks, like "be careful so you don't end up like the poor sap on this label."

Hit the link below to check out a massive Flickr gallery with over 300 beautiful examples of Chinese firecracker labels, they're really neat!

Puppet Neil Gaiman And Alan Moore Talk About Before Watchmen


(YouTube Link)

Alan Moore doesn't appear to be very cuddly in real life, despite the ursine beard.

Neil Gaiman seems a bit cuddlier, but his Jesus and Mary Chain style and dark wit cast him in a mysterious light.

But both guys look adorable, and quite cuddly, as puppets!

Let's play pretend time and imagine that their discussion about Before Watchmen is as nice as the one taking place in this video.

Pencil Vs. Camera Process Video


(YouTube Link)

This interesting process video shows how artist and photographer Ben Heine creates his surreal Pencil Vs. Camera series, one torn sheet of paper and a subject at a time.

It's an interesting look at how Ben's videos and illustrations comes together, but the video makes the entire process look a bit too easy!

Dreamlike Paintings By Kent Williams



Kent Williams has long been one of my top ten favorite artists, and his uniquely styled paintings have graced both the covers of comic books and the walls of fine art galleries across the globe.

His latest series is full of surreal, dreamlike imagery surrounded by painterly strokework and a sort of deconstruction that makes the whole scene feel even more real.

Hit either of the links below if you want to see the stuff dreams are made of....

Ultimate Fireworks Fail Compilation


(YouTube Link)

Let us close out the celebration of America's birthday with a compilation video containing explosive examples of stupid humans playing with fireworks.

A firework fail is best observed via video, mostly because you don't have to worry about taking someone to the hospital or cleaning up afterwards.

The Thief Who Stole A Dali Then Sent It Back



A brazen art thief recently stole Cartel de Don Juan Tenorio by Salvador Dali, valued at over $150k, from the Venus Over Manhattan Gallery in New York by distracting the guard and walking out with the piece in broad daylight. Then he sent it back.

The gallery put the word out about the thief, but didn't expect to get the work back, until they received an anonymous email saying it had been sent back, and it was delivered to the gallery later that week via Express Mail.

Why would someone do such a thing? Your guess is as good as mine...

Awesome Animated Short - Bizarro Classic


(YouTube Link)

This superpowered animated short is called Bizarro Classic, and it was created by Disney animator Robb Pratt as a follow up to his short Superman Classic.

I loved the style, the animation was top notch, I only wish this short was a bit longer because it left me wanting more!
