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!

Zombie Targets That Really Bleed



If you want to get the feel of actually shooting a zombie and watching him spring a leak without harming living humans then check out these grisly bleeding zombie targets from Zombie Industries.

Guaranteed to creep out your in-laws and most door-to-door salesmen.

A Hot Air Balloon Shaped Like Darth Vader



This custom Sith Lord shaped hot air balloon is still casting the shadow of the Dark Side across the globe, flying high since 2007.

It was custom made for (surprise!) a huge Star Wars fan from the UK, who actually got approval from the crew at LucasFilm before making this beautiful hot air balloon.

The sweetest part about this custom balloon has to be the attention to detail, making the Sith Lord's helmet easily discernible from miles away.

Watch Danger 5, But Beware Of Nazi Dinosaurs


(YouTube Link)

Danger 5 is one of the funniest, if not THE funniest, show to hit the airwaves since (insert title of your favorite funny show here)!

It's full of comedic action, dramatic comedic action, suspense filled action dramedy, and NAZI DINOSAURS!

The only Danger viewers will encounter when watching Danger 5 is the danger of running out of episodes to watch!

Your first episode, which happens to be the second episode of the first season, is on the house! Exclamation!

(May contain material some viewers might find to be somewhat NSFW)

Wonderfully Natural Artwork By Olga Ziemska



Olga Ziemska is an artist who finds inspiration in the rhythm and symmetry of the natural world, and she creates works which attempt to create order out of chaos.

Olga uses materials sourced from nature, and some of her outdoor installations look like whimsical props for a fairy tale themed movie.

This Hummer Has A Little Too Much Firepower



This way too heavily armed Black Knight Hummer H2 is the most extreme act of vehicular overcompensation I've ever seen on the interwebs.

Bristling with guns and bad attitude, this Hummer screams "get the hell outta my way!" while the driver holds himself and cries "love me, want me, hug me!" to a world hung up on outward appearance.

SRSLY, this thing is armed to the teeth, with a fierce fantasy paint job to match. Hit the link if you want to see the full list of on-board weapons and watch this wicked vehicular weapon let some rounds fly!

Fireworks Safety PSA From The Early 90s


(YouTube Link)

This PSA from the early 90s was made by the Office of the California State Fire Marshal to warn kids about how dangerous it is to play with fireworks.

The ad has some terrible dialog and the overall cheese factor you've come to expect from retro PSAs, but the superhero star of the ad known as The Preventor has a pretty sweet costume!

The Underwater Sculptures Of Jason DeCaires Taylor



Jason DeCaires Taylor is an eco-sculptor, an artist who has found a way to make his sculptures meld seamlessly with the natural world.

His works become one with nature and even support life, as demonstrated by the ring of sculptures shown above which now serve as habitats for coral and aquatic critters who fancy a human of their very own to call home.

Street Art Style Advertising For Pest Control



These clever street art style installations were created by TBWA Hunt Lascaris Johannesburg as a fun way to advertise pest control sprays by letting people see the insects living inside the walls.

Mini furniture and real dead cockroaches were used to created comical dioramas of roaches living the good life, the idea being that the roach fogger can reach into the cracks in the walls and kill those happy little roach families where they live.

I've never felt so bad for a bunch of cockroaches in my life!

Ride A Bike, Shorten Your Prison Sentence



Inmates at  the Santa Rita do Sapucai prison in Brazil are being offered a deal too good to pass up-put in 16 hours on a bicycle and get a day knocked off your sentence.

It's an interesting way to encourage prisoners to cooperate and literally work towards their freedom, and the stationary bikes are being used to charge batteries which are then taken into the city and used to power streetlights.

Sounds like a great way to stay in shape, give back to society and whittle your sentence down while biking.

Meet The Pyro From Team Fortress 2


(YouTube Link)

Man, the Pyro character class from the video game Team Fortress 2 is one sick puppy.

Seeing the world through his eyes is like taking an acid trip through Candyland, too bad his foes don't see things the way he does!

Watch this fiery personality burn a path through the competition in this awesome animated short.

(Warning: Lots of animated blood and gore)

Vintage TV Commercial For Atari


(YouTube Link)

Talk about gnarly to the max! This totally rad Atari commercial from the 80s has it all-a beach, a boombox, and babes galore!

Oh, and there's the bit about totally tubular old games like Ms. Pac-Man, Vanguard, Centipede and Galaxian.

Man, I totally wish I could just take my Atari console to the beach with me and plug it in anywhere, that would be totally bodacious!

Hand Knit Monster Masks



Tracy Widdess has named her strange hand knit monster mask series Brutal Knitting, and they put the ITT in knitting!

They're full of monstrous details and ghoulish charm that only a mother could love, and when worn they will deter people from standing too close to you.

If you like them and want them for your very own, you can visit Tracy's Etsy shop and show the world how you really feel inside. I feel pretty...

Josh Atlas And His Strange Sweet Tooth



Artist Josh Atlas clearly has a thing for the sugary side of life, and he expresses his love for the sweet stuff through sculptures and drawings that look decidedly less delicious than the real thing.

His strange works are like cautionary tales against eating sweets just before bed, and they've put me off of donuts and ice cream for the time being!

Mugshots Of Extremely Hip Troublemakers



The hipster baddies in these mugshots look so cool I wanna join their gang!

These rebels without a care were arrested in the late 1960s (and one in 1970) around Minneapolis, Minnesota, and probably set the fashion bar pretty high in their holding cells.

Being stylish isn't a prerequisite for a life of crime, but it doesn't hurt!

More Japanese Woodblock Style Video Game Art By Jed Henry

I recently posted an article about the amazing Video Game Themed Japanese Woodblock Style Art of Jed Henry.

Well, Jed is back and this batch looks even better than the last one!

This time around we've got fierce Pokemon battling in the ring, a kabuki styled Mario battling a big ape named Donkey, and many more awesome works of Japanese style art!

Anyone who says that video game themed art can't hold a candle to fine art should take a look at Jed's woodblock works, they're simply wonderful!

The Gatling Gun Made Especially For Chinese Cops



Police officers in China have been dealing with quite a lot of rioting lately, but by the look of this soon-to-be standard issue Gatling gun they're preparing for war!

This 7.62mm Gatling machine gun fires up to 6,000 rounds per minute, and looks extremely menacing as it barks away, mowing down anyone in its path.

What do you think--doesn't this seem like an extreme way for the police to handle civil unrest?

Causes Of Death: 1900 vs. 2010



Here's a nifty little chart from the New England Journal of Medicine that shows how far we've come, and how far we still need to go, in the field of medicine over the last hundred and ten years.

It's surprising to note how much more cancer we deal with nowadays, and how heart disease rates have risen despite all the advances we've made in the realm of cardiology.

Enjoy a weekend free of gastrointestinal infections everyone!

Hanging Out At A Costume Party When...WTF?!



I don't know what this guy was thinking when he decided to show up at a costume party with a plush koala on his head, but he sure was a big hit with the ladies!

They kept saying "oh, he looks so soft and cuddly!" and "he's the cutest guy here!", but I took one look in those eyes and I knew there was something wrong with this miscreant.

Maybe it's my childhood fear of koalas, or the fact that his shirt makes him look like he just escaped from prison and is using the koala mask to conceal his identity, but I had to leave the party early.

So much for life in the fast lane of DIY cosplay!

The Combat Gnomes Are Back With Even More Firepower



These combat ready garden gnomes are created from scratch by artist Shawn Thorsson, who obviously had a pest problem that a little bit of bug spray couldn't handle.

This time around the gnomish combatants are back with more firepower and a tactical formation which will ensure that every square inch of your yard or garden is protected, in case your local pests aren't keen on surrendering!

Fantastic Sculptures By Odani Motohiko



These massive, milk white sculptures by Japanese artist Odani Motohiko have an ethereal nature about them, with wispy details and fantastic subjects to match.

They have the appearance of fine porcelain, which adds to the delicate nature of these works, and would probably look even more impressive in a room where the walls are painted black, so they would really stand out.

Hit the Hi Fructose link below and take a tour of Odani's latest showing at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco-it's almost like being there in person, even though it really isn't the same at all!

Miniature Worlds By Takanori Aiba



You may remember John Farrier's post about the Bonsai Tree Castle, which was created by Japanese artist Takanori Aiba.

Well Takanori's art certainly doesn't stop there, and would you believe that the rest of his miniature worlds (structural sculptures) are even more fantastic than the tree castle?!

With a style ripped straight from mythology and every minor detail accounted for, these tiny kingdoms look like a great place for fairy folk to call home.

Computer Dialog Box Street Art



These hilarious computer dialog box street art pieces are by Jilly Ballistic, an artist and rebel who delights in showing advertisers the errors of their ways.

The clever statements blend so perfectly with the original piece that they almost seem like one of those unintentional Photoshop menu slips you see on fail blogs, and they're so perfectly pointed that any advertiser with a sense of humor will think twice before taking them down!

Wooly Dioramas Of Iceland



What natural fiber immediately comes to mind at the mention of Iceland? Why it's wool, of course!

Artist and photographer Eszter Burghardt clearly agrees with the wool-Iceland association, and she was inspired to create this series of wooly dioramas depicting the rugged Icelandic landscape during an artist residence on the island.

I love the use of macro photography to give the miniature textural landscape the appearance of being grandiose in scale, and wool is such a fitting textile to use as a representative of Iceland!

Canine Parody Of Adele's Video Rolling In The Deep


(YouTube Link)

This silly little music video from The Pet Collective shows how your dog feels when you go out of town, and reveals that the cat couldn't care less!

So grab a milk bone and bark along to Pawdelle's version of Adele's pop hit Rolling In The Deep retitled Digging In The Deep, and if you're a fan of this decidedly canine vocal style you should check out the Jingle Dogs, their songs are pre-paws-terously funny!

Samurai Boba Fett Cosplay



I've been wondering when someone would get around to creating costumes based on the Samurai Star Wars fan art series, and this cool Samurai Boba Fett costume means that my wait is over.

The costume was created by Allen Armis, and it was inspired by the artwork of Clinton Felker, who brought the look of feudal Japan to a galaxy far, far away.

You can see more pics of this awesome costume at the links below.
