Watch A Man Age 12 Years In About 8 Minutes

(YouTube Link)

Photographer Noah Kalina braved the inherent fear of aging and took 4,514 portraits of himself over 12 years, then he put them all together in video form, adding a suitably eerie electronic track for aural effect.

Since this is the follow up to his previous 6 year record, I'm sure he'll keep checking in with a new video every six years until he literally drops dead while filming. See you in six Noah!

DIY Big Head Video Screen Costume

Industrious builder of wondrous contraptions Dan Rosenfeld channelled his love of video conferencing, and the Apple Macintosh commercial from 1984, into an awesome Big Video Head rig that would make the Wizard of Oz green with envy.

Here's more about the Big Head Project:

The rig is a head-mounted box with a 24-inch LCD monitor on the front that displays a larger-than-life version of Dan's face. Inside the box, Dan has a tiny camera trained on his face, a microphone, and a monitor connected to an external camera so he can see where he's going. To test gaze awareness, the rig is configured so that Dan is looking directly at you while talking to reduce the thousand-yard stare associated with teleconferencing.

Art Installations That Alter Your Perception Of Space

To say that the optical art installations created by Esther Stocker are trippy would be an understatement, because they are positively mind altering!

Each space evokes a unique perception shifting feeling in simple black and white, and even the individual pics of the rooms have a unique optical effect on the viewer.

Eminem In A Clown Costume

Sooo Eminem enjoys sporting a clown costume from time to time...no biggie just kickin' it on the block wearing a funny hat and making balloon animals for the kiddies. (not sure about that last part...wikipedia it?)

He's certainly entitled to dress theatrically, as long as he doesn't start showing up at birthday parties looking for work!

Who's Watching The Watchmen Fashion Show?

(YouTube Link)

Okay, maybe creating a fashion show infomercial isn't the best way to sell Watchmen themed costumes, but you can't blame a costumer for trying.

And try they did, right down to the clubtastic soundtrack that would have embarrassed the original Watchmen into hiding.

Mmmmmm.....Zombie Waffles!

Nothing says "good morning sleepyhead" like a zombie themed breakfast plate-a severed pancake hand clutching a waffle while all of the cherry jam runs out all over the plate.

Add a splash of syrup and you've got a hand I wouldn't mind sinking my teeth into!

Antique Samurai Armor Made For Dogs

It's no secret that dogs have fought alongside their human masters for centuries, so setting them up with a sweet suit of armor seems like the best way to prove that dogs really are man's best friend.

This suit of doggy armor dates back to the Edo period of Japanese history, and even though it wasn't made for use in combat it definitely would have made a pooch look extra tough!

Here's more about this armor:

General opinion is that this set was made from a dog belonging to a very senior samurai, possibly a daimyo, who apparently was extremely found of this canine companion [...] This set is of dubious practical value, and was almost certainly produced as a novelty item to appease the whim of an apparently very wealthy, powerful, and one can only assume, somewhat eccentric samurai warrior. The armour was most like used likely limited in its use to being worn during [...] formal parade-like situations.

Star Wars X Disney Character Design Mashups

Even though this isn't a totally original idea, since Disney has been doing something similar for a while now, these Star Wars - Disney animation character design mashups by Nathan H. Boyd are still pretty darn cute.

Of particular note is Jiminy Cricket as Yoda and Pete (who is missing his signature cigar) as Darth Vader.

What People In 1899 Thought The Year 2000 Would Look Like

If people living in the year 1899 could have seen what life would be like in the year 2000 they probably would have been disappointed, although 3D TVs and tablet computers would have seemed pretty far out.

Check out these illustrations which:

...were made by Jean-Marc Côté and other artists in France in 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910. The first series of these pictures were produced for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris.

For the most part technology hasn't caught up with our science fiction dreams, and in some cases this is definitely a good thing! I do wish we had winged firemen though...

Photos Of Haunted Homes, Hotels And War Bunkers

Photographer Kevin O'Connell enjoys taking pictures of abandoned buildings and spooky places, and makes the scenes look even spookier by using long exposure times (sometimes as long as seven hours!) to achieve an effect he calls "painting with light".

The night sky turns an eerie color that really frames each structure, making them look like somewhere you wouldn't want to be after dark.

If you like this pic of "an old Japanese bunker on a remote island in the Pacific" you have to check out the rest of Kevin's pics at the link below!

Meet Mr. Kitty, A Bat Rescued By A Cat

Once upon a time a flying rat bat was rescued by a cat and thereby named Mr. Kitty, thereby becoming one of the luckiest bloodsuckers to ever hit the night sky.

A feral cat discovered the poor little guy in the parking lot of the Bat World Sanctuary in Texas, his wing broken beyond repair, so the cat gingerly brought him to the caretakers and dropped the patient off in his new home.

Even though he doesn't look too happy about the whole ordeal I'm sure Mr. Kitty is thrilled to be alive, he's probably just a bit camera shy!

Chair Covered In Eyeballs Is The Scariest Seat In The House

This frightening, eyeball laden chair was created by artist Fiona Roberts, and it won't stop staring at you until somebody sits on it!

She calls this piece "Scopophilia", which means the love of looking, but if you look at it too long you'll swear that some of those eyes are blinking, and others seem to be looking around the room!

Or maybe it's just my imagination getting the better of me...

A Documentary About The Real Life Dude

Strange European Posters For American Movies

Sending a Hollywood movie overseas means simply adding subtitles, but advertising said movie means wacky new artwork created by someone who clearly hasn't even seen the movie!
