This Zombie Pineapple Would Make One Mean Pina Colada

Not all Halloween carvings must be rendered in pumpkin, this pineapple zombie is downright scary without the candle and orange skin!

It was created by DeviantARTist kjas with a pineapple, some Laffy Taffy, black raspberry jam blood and a pair of custom eyes.

How Images Were Manipulated Before Photoshop

The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition made up of 200 photos which were altered or manipulated in some way between 1840 and 1900, well before the advent of digital image manipulation via programs like Photoshop.

They should have called the exhibition Ye Olde Way To Shoppe A Photo!

A Tim Burton Inspired Pokemon Menagerie

These crude yet utterly adorable sketches are by Vaughn Pinpin, who decided to show the world what Pokemon would look like if they were drawn by Tim Burton.

The only thing that would make this series better would be if Tim Burton actually drew them, then started making a series of animated shorts based on his scraggly version of Pokemon.

With the look of these little guys I'm not so sure anyone will want to catch them all...

A Handsomely Decorated Halloween Cake

This elegantly simple Halloween themed cake has a gnarly frosting tree crawling up the side, lots of sweet ghosts, black cats, pumpkins and bats, and the top is emblazoned with a spider's web bearing a birthday greeting.

It's a sweet work of cake art, and it looks like it was made with frosting, instead of fondant, so it was probably delicious to booooo-t!

They're just a bunch of handbags out on the town, no big deal on the fashionable Hollywood streets. 

Wait, this picture was taken during the 2011 Halloween festivities in West Hollywood? That explains the clown...

This Costume Is For The Birds

Photo: Brent Moore/Flickr

This clever Melanie Daniels costume, a character from Hitchcock's classic horror film The Birds, is so easy to put together that anyone can make it.

All you need is a vintage dress and jacket, blonde wig, some stuffed birds and lots of fake blood.

Slash the jacket for added horrific effect, maybe add a wound effect or two to your face and you've got a memorable Halloween costume in the making.

The King Is Back And Barking Up A Storm

Photo: Aphrodite-In-NYC/Flickr

Elvis may have physically "left the building", but his spirit lives on inside this cute little dressed up dog!

He ain't a hound dog, but his barkin' all the time drives the poodles in skirts wild. I think they're blinded by this little guy's bold personality and oversized belt buckle.

Celebrating Halloween In Antartica

These happy food shaped revellers are stationed at McMurdo research station in Antartica, but that didn't stop them from throwing on their costumes and having some Halloween fun.

They're dressed as Flunch- a flight lunch: 2 sandwiches, chips, apple, a juice box and a Kit Kat. What a fun and healthy meal!

Did Vincent Van Gogh Just Walk Through The Door?

Photo:Matthew David Powell/Flickr

This clever costume really brings the Van Gogh theme to life, and aside from that wire around his head it looks like a fairly comfortable costume to wear.

We applaud this guy's painting skills, creativity, and the fact that he still has both of his ears!

Now, before your heart drops remember- this is only a plushie, no cats were harmed in the making of this hilariously tacky decoration.

Halloween Costumes From Yesteryear

The times may be a-changin', but the Halloween fun of wearing costumes stays relatively the same.

Join us as we take a tour of Halloween costumes and sugar laced revelry from the last hundred years or so.

You'll laugh, you'll cringe and you'll soon find out that things don't change much when it comes to dressing up for Halloween!

Photo: rich701/Flickr

Even in 1917 dressing in drag was a popular costume choice for Halloween, and since this was a year found smack dab in the middle of World War I dressing in military gear was also a popular choice.

However, the combination of drag and olive drab makes this one group you wouldn't want to run into while you're on shore leave.

A little bunny girl captured on film way back in 1922 in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, and she looks like she's ready to have a hopping good time out on the town.

It's nice to see that DIY Halloween fashion hasn't changed much in the last 90 years.

Photo: Foxtongue/Flickr

The band of gypsys shown here look like they're up to no good, and once again they prove that Halloween can be a real drag!

I hope these ne'er-do-wells don't drag their younger siblings down with them, or else 1930 is going to be the beginning of their careers as petty criminals...

A public school teacher from Waterdown, Ontario Canada decided to show her love of Halloween by wearing this festive ensemble- jester style hat, mask, striped scarf with pumpkin medallion and striped skirt to match.

My, don't you look like the cat's meow Miss Crabapple!

Photo: State Library Of Queensland, Australia/Flickr

Here's a picture from 1946 of a boy wearing what is described as a "cockney style outfit", which looks a bit disco biker to me.

And is that a real live bird on his shoulder? This kid's got a lot of moxy, I tell ya what...

Art-o-Mat- A Cigarette Machine Converted To Sell Art

Once upon a time you dropped your money in the slot and pulled for a pack of cigarettes, now these renovated cig machines dole out miniature works of art.

They've been converted by Clark Whittington, of Artists-In-Cellophane out of North Carolina, since 1997, and I hope one makes its way to one of my neighborhood bars!

The "smoke 'em if you got 'em" days may be long gone, but these diner and barroom fixtures live on.

Hyperrealistic Ball Point Pen Drawings

This stunning portrait of a fiery redheaded girl is by Samuel Silva, an illustrator who really knows his way around a ball point pen!

Samuel's use of color elevates his works above the standard realistic portraits rendered in black ink, and adds to the realism and warmth of each piece.

Video Of A Flying Bike In Action

(YouTube Link)

This video shows a flying (hovering, really) bike created by Aerofex floating across the desert floor, proving that our Star Wars landspeeder/speeder bike dreams will soon be coming true.

It can go as fast as 30 mph, and as high as 15 feet off the ground, and once they've supplied the military Aerofex is going to release these hoverbikes for sale to the public.

Aside from all the dust this thing kicks up it looks like a fun ride!

Ghostbusters Theme Song Played On Eight Floppy Drives

(YouTube Link)

Retro computer junk is all the rage in the world of geeky electronic music, so when I saw a video posted by MrSolidSnake745 in which the Ghostbusters theme song is played by eight floppy drives I thought "why not?"

Now that I've watched the video I know what the buzz is about- this is the best floppy drive rendition I've ever heard, and that's saying a lot considering how many of these silly floppy styled videos are on the interwebs!

Portraits Of Musicians Made From CDs

Why throw all those old, scratched CDs away when you can make awesome works of art with them!

This detailed portrait of Bob Marley was created by Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco, and it's made out of discarded Bob Marley CDs that were no longer jammin'.

Hit the link and check out the rest of the rock icons rendered as CD sculptures, it's better than using them as coasters!

Now where did my wrench go?

Robot Heads Made From Salvaged Junk

Artist and robot lover Tal Avitzur doesn't believe in throwing away leftover metal junk- because he'd rather make cool robot heads out of it all!

He calls these wall mounted robot heads Talbotics, and they would look really cool adorning the wall of a scifi themed trophy room.

The Odd Life Of Timothy Green Ruined Their Day

(YouTube Link)

(Spoiler Alert-If you really wanna see Timothy Green spoiler-free, watch this hilarious video after you see the movie)

Somebody told these kids that The Odd Life Of Timothy Green is the "feel good movie of the summer", so they begged their parents to take them.

Now their young lives are ruined and there's nothing their parents, Disney or anybody else can do about it!

What Lies Beneath The Metal Skin Of Pixar's Cars

These fun Pixar's Cars themed internal anatomy illustrations are by Jake Parker, and I think they just made the whole talking car thing a bit creepier.

Jake's illustrations have come a long way from their humble beginnings back in 2008 (link below), and I hope he creates one of these cool diagram for every character.

One question comes to mind when I look at these drawings- do the dealerships scoop the brains out of the vehicles before they sell them, or is that procedure dealt with at the factory?
