Custom Made Creepy Cute Little Creature Dolls

Santani is an artist from Moscow, Russia who has been making cute yet creepy little creatures for about five years now, which combine sculptural elements, plush sewing and amazing paint jobs to bring her fantastically furry creations to life. They look like real life Mogwai, or Pokemon, or whatever kind of skin crawlingly adorable little critters typically seen in a sci-fi movie or cartoon.

Santani has come back into the spotlight recently to announce that she’ll soon be opening an Etsy store, so anyone who has been dying to get their hands on one of these magical creatures, but didn’t want to go through the hassle and long wait of commissioning, will soon be able to bring one home. Just don't try to shove them in a plastic ball, or feed them after midnight, they hate to be treated like one of those other critters!

Cards Against Humanity- Doctor Who Edition

Those who like their playtime card based and social have probably tried their hands at a game of Cards Against Humanity, the brilliantly crass card game best played in a group of people with thick skin and a sense of humor.

One of the greatest things about the game is how easy it is to add your own cards to the mix, the basic set even includes a bunch of blank cards so you can make up your own wacky content, and you can even download the whole set for free if you prefer to print and play.

Now a comedy improv group called Conventional Improv have created their own set of cards to add to the game called Cards Against Gallifrey, full of fun Doctor Who references that range from bizarre to downright dirty which you can download for free. What exactly is a Rusty Cyberman? Maybe we're all better off not knowing... (NSFW due to explicit language)

What It Feels Like To Be Cured Of A Zombie Virus- The First Wave

(Video Link)

Zombie films, comics, television shows and novels have attempted to explain every little aspect of life during the zombie apocalypse, from the spreading of the virus to the effects on plants and animals and beyond, but what about those who are cured of the virus? What do those rare breed of horror scenario survivors do with themselves once they’ve been cured of a zombie virus and get to live again?

The First Wave, a short horror film by director David Freyne and prequel to upcoming feature length movie The Third Wave, addresses this problem in an extremely humanistic manner, with the air of desperation still left to linger about the room and peril waiting just outside the door. (Warning- contains zombie related violence!)

Game Of Thrones Scenes As Japanese Woodcut Style Prints

George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones saga may have taken place in Westeros, which is more like Europe than Asia, but it's every fan art/fiction creating geek's duty to consider the possibility of their favorite storyline taking place in another locale, or an alternate dimension.

Imagining scenes from the Game of Thrones series as Japanese woodblock prints somehow makes sense, and the characters really look right wearing old timey Nihon garb. Created by Imgur user seiji, these sharp looking scenes are so popular that seiji is now planning on offering prints for sale online. Check out all the prints in the series here, complete with description of each scene.

Three Hour Long Supercut Of Every NES Title Screen Ever Made

(Video Link)

Old school gamers with no new games to play and nothing better to do might want to set aside some time, approximately three hours or so, and watch this compilation of every single NES title screen ever made in alphabetical order.

Press Start was made by YouTube user NicksplosionFX, and it's sure to bring back fond memories of waiting for your game to start, waiting for player two to get back from the bathroom, or waiting until you've finished your Hot Pocket before hitting the start button.

Some screens are a bit mundane, others are totally epic and exciting with full color pixelated visuals, and watching them all is the ultimate exercise in time wasting! Can you bear the full three hours of excruciatingly monotonous nostalgia?

Nursing Home Residents Re-Create Scenes From Their Favorite Movies

You’re never too old to have some photographic fun, and when life gets boring for retirement community residents in the Westphalia region of Germany they get all dressed up and re-enact scenes from some of their favorite movies.

The Essenes Contilia Group gathered seniors from ten different homes across the region, brought in wardrobes and props and shot these hilarious movie re-enactment shots for a calendar called Klassiker 2014, which was made strictly for the employees, residents and their families. The seniors look like they had a lot of fun starring in these Hollywood themed photos, and hopefully they'll be putting together another calendar for 2015.

Trailer For Love Child- A Documentary About Internet Addiction

(Video Link)

A South Korean couple were so immersed in the multiplayer game Prius Online that they let their child starve to death, raising questions about whether Korea’s “place as the world leader of Internet infrastructure has adversely affected its communal society”.

That’s the story behind the first plea of not guilty due to internet addiction that actually worked- a manslaughter case against Kim Yoo-chul and Choi Mi-sun that inspired Valerie Veatch to create the documentary Love Child, a timely documentary which recently played at the Sundance Film Festival addressing the problem faced by nations across the globe as our daily lives become more integrated with the Internet.

Iggy Pop Shows You Around His New York Neighborhood In 1993

(Video Link)

Iggy Pop once called the city of Detroit home, but since he moved on from his time with The Stooges and became a solo star of stage and screen he’s spent some time in a few major cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York.

In 1993 Iggy was living in the Christodora House in New York’s Lower East Side and loving every minute of it, and in this video tour directed by Bram van Splunteren the original punk rocker gives us a very Iggy tour of his neighborhood, which has changed quite a bit over the last twenty years.

Majestic Scrap Metal Lion Sculpture

Creating a sculpture befitting the regal King of Beasts is a tall order, but making one out of nearly 4,000 pieces of hammered metal seems like a virtually impossible task, or at least one that involves a lot of time, patience and know-how.

Turkish artist Selcuk Yilmaz apparently has an abundance of all three, because his metal lion statue titled Aslan took him only ten months to complete and looks absolutely amazing. Aslan is larger than life and weighs 550 pounds, and each piece was hand cut and hammered by Selcuk, proving that he has the heart of a lion and a limitless supply of scrap metal!

Our Lenin Soviet Propaganda Kids Book From 1934

Back in the good old days of Communism the art was hip to be square, the statues were crazy huge and the kids were allowed to march around in the square. Dressed in smart little uniforms with their heads all full of that Red propaganda, what is a Soviet kid to read during story hour?

Here’s a copy of Our Lenin, so they can get the back story on their mighty leader Joseph Stalin and learn how long it took him to grow that sweet moustache. Freshly translated into English in 1934 by the American Communist Party, Our Lenin is jam packed with armed conflicts, corruption and, of course, Lenin looking all stoic and heroic.

Clean Up New York PSA By David Lynch

(Video Link)

If you don’t properly dispose of your trash, if you simply toss your garbage around like a litter loving savage, the rats will come and they are terrifying! According to this 1991 PSA by David Lynch for the City of New York the streets will be overrun with rats if people don’t do their part to clean up after themselves, and rats spell doom for the thriving metropolis.

Lynch created this stylish black and white PSA as part of the “Clean Up” campaign, and it’s so noir meets avant garde meets modern urban realist that they should write papers about it in film school, with a chapter on why rats are so good at method acting.

The Skeletal Remains Of Vehicular Creatures

Warning- Seeing vehicles without their shiny metal veneers, molded rubber bits and windows may be disturbing to some viewers.

Looking like the insides of the killer vehicles in the horror movie Maximum Overdrive or the dog shaped van in Dumb & Dumber, these skeletal vehicle sculptures show us why our cars really purr, and what the fossils of an extinct species of automotive dinosaur might look like.

These spectacular vehicasaur sculptures were created by Jitish Kallat- the big one’s named Aquasaurus and the little bikey fellow is called Ignitasaurus, and both are on display now at Art Stage Singapore.

We featured another car from Jitish's series previously on Neatorama- the Prius skeleton Collindonthus, so check that one out and complete the series!

Ten Debunked Myths About World War I

World War I seems like one bleak, trench filled exercise in outdated war tactics and mustard gas attacks when history is viewed through the veil, but as it turns out we have been living under many false assumptions about The Great War, and with the centennial fast approaching historians want to set the records straight.

It seems most soldiers didn't mind being sent off to war, since they got luxuries like meat, rum and cigarettes every day which most couldn’t afford at home. Troops also weren’t stuck in trenches for years on end, they were rotated out about every ten days, and most soldiers only spent a maximum of three days on the front lines.

Read on to discover the truth about many World War I myths.

Comedic Short Film About Prison Dating- Dinner And A Movie

(Video Link)

When you start an online romance with a prison inmate you never know who, or what, you’re going to be dealing with when they finally get released and you meet face-to-face for the first time. Some may be even crazier and more dangerous than you thought, while others simply got caught up with the wrong crowd and aren’t really bad at heart.

In Ben Aston’s comedic short Dinner and a Movie we see two people who met through a prison dating website seeing each other in person for the first time, and let’s just say he’s not quite what she expected when she started writing letters to a con. (Barely NSFW due to language)

Photographer Turns Himself Into A Two Headed Freak

There are very few photographers who would choose to make themselves look like some sort of freakish creature when they shoot a self portrait series, but Swedish photographer Samuel Pettersson decided he’d rather play the role of a two headed monstrosity in his series entitled “The Animal”, and as you'd expect the photos are delightfully bizarre to behold.

Watch a two headed, no legged man wander the streets looking all creepy, climb trees and drain pipes and take a nap all while looking creepy. He even lays on his own lap, and cuddles up in bed with two more versions of himself, like a good little animal man.

Computer Generated Images Of Animals In The Womb

Before the advancement of computer generated imaging, three dimensional ultrasound technology and the ability to use those enhancements in the medical field, seeing images of animals in the womb seemed impossible without the use of invasive cameras and surgery.

While we still aren't able to capture images quite as colorful and detailed as these computer generated images created by Peter Chinn, who used "a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, tiny cameras and computer graphics to create these truly astonishing embryonic images", the images featured in a National Geographic Channel special we covered nearly six years ago here on Neatorama give us a good idea of what future 3D ultrasound images might look like. And for the first time you can see all twelve embryonic animal snapsots, from the adorable elephant to the long-necked horse.

The Living Clay Art Of Johnson Stang

Johnson Stang has the alchemist’s gift of making solid materials, in this case ceramic clay, bend to his will and take on the characteristics of a fluid without sacrificing solidity, while beautifully replicating humanistic forms in a splash of sculptural liquid.

His latest series is called Living Clay, and it combines ceramic crockery with sculptural element to create the fluid illusion, capturing the look of liquids mid-pour with realistic human faces emerging from the drink.

The sculptural forms flow in such an organic way it's hard to believe they're made of clay and not splashing liquids, and Johnson seamlessly integrates human forms into each piece in a way which makes them feel like they've always been there just waiting to rise up out of the water.

Highly Detailed Model Of Boeing 777 Made Out Of Manila Folders

(Video Link)

Papercraft modelers who work in offices have discovered a nearly unlimited resource sitting in the file cabinetsall around them- manila folders. These lightweight yet strong tan colored folders make for great papercraft models, as is evidenced by this amazing model of a Boeing 777 airplane created by Luca Iaconi-Stewart.

The 1:60 scale model took him over five years to build, and features working cargo doors and landing gear, full interior details including bathrooms and overhead bins, and meticulously detailed thrusters that look like they might roar to life at any moment.

Not only has Luca paid attention to every little detail you can imagine, he’s posted an exhaustive amount of process photos and showoff videos so we can all bask in the glory of his mighty manila model plane.

The Long Lost Photos From Gordon Parks' Segregation Series

Gordon Parks is best known for his portraits of Civil Rights Movement leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, and for documenting the plight of Black Americans during the 1950s and 60s for Life Magazine, but did you know he also directed the hit film Shaft?

He was a man of many talents, and in 1956 Gordon was sent on assignment by Life Magazine to document the daily life of a southern Black family for an article titled “The Restraints: Open and Hidden”.

Gordon’s pictures really hit home with readers across the nation, but many of the shots taken during that assignment didn’t make it into the magazine layout, and the unused extras were thought to be lost until 2012 when someone from the Gordon Parks Foundation discovered 70 more full color photos in some old storage boxes.

This MLK Day we celebrate the second anniversary of the discovery of the long lost Segregation series photographs by remembering the guy behind the camera, and one extremely iconic Black American, Gordon Parks.

Hanging Light That Makes Your Room Feel Like A Spooky Forest

(Video Link)

Home décor inspired by shapes found in nature tends to look pretty cool, but when home décor looks naturalistic and brings the feel of the outdoors inside, where it's warm and dry, it lends a magical air to an otherwise boring space and shows the world how outdoorsy you are without sacrificing the comforts of home.

Take this amazing light sculpture work by Hilden Diaz- it looks like a mass of branches or roots, which is cool in itself, but when a light is placed in the center of the sphere it casts root shaped shadowforms upon the walls, giving any room the feel of a spooky forest or briar patch.

Blood Drenched Game Of Thrones Red Wedding Cake

The Red Wedding scene in George R. R. Martin’s television series Game of Thrones forever changed the way geeks think about their weddings, and some sickos out there probably found the scene inspirational for their own wedding theme.

Those who delighted in the Red Wedding slaughter will love this Red Wedding Cake, which features oodles of oozing blood beneath a miniature Iron Throne placed atop the cake to remind the guests who is in charge. It's fancy, in a blood drenched kind of way, and the only thing that could make this cake better is a bit of strawberry filling inside so it bleeds when you slice it open.

If you see a cake like this at any weddings you attend do yourself a favor and get the heck out of there, before the bolts start flying and guests start dropping like flies!

Strange Psychoanalysis Comic Books From The 1950s

When comics are selling like newsprint hotcakes publishers are constantly on the lookout for something or someone else to make a comic book about, and in the 1950s there was even a comic book series based on psychoanalysis. It was meant to steer the Comics Code Authority away from the more violent titles released by E.C. Comics, as part of their educational New Direction series.

Watch as super powered shrinks use Freudian techniques to steer their patients toward sanity, behold as they ask each patient to talk about their mother, and marvel at the mundane nature of this supposedly educational title created by the same company that made Tales From The Crypt and The Vault of Horror!

An Old Silo Transformed Into A Modern Lighthouse

The Lighthouse Design Collective in Finland gave an old steel oil silo a second life by turning it into a fully functioning modern lighthouse and urban light art space for visitors to enjoy.

The walls of the repurposed oil silo, dubbed Silo 468, are covered in over 2,000 perforated holes housing LED lights that illuminate the coastline outside, and put on an incredibly beautiful light show for visitors inside.

The interior space looks like it would make the ultimate skating rink, with walls painted red and lights playing off every surface, and outside the computerized lighting setup does something pretty darn neat:

At night 1250 white LED’s flicker and sway on the surface of the silo controlled by a bespoke software mimicking swarms of birds in flight – a reference to silo´s seaside location. The prevailing winds, well-known to those living in Helsinki, are used to trigger different light patterns in real time.

Surreal Animated Short - Waiter

(Video Link)

Here’s an animated short that may be the strangest short you’ve ever seen, or at least until the next time someone posts something utterly bizarre that they found online.

The short is called Waiter, and it was created by Ryoji Yamada, a Japanese animator who is clearly way too familiar with psychotropic substances. Waiter centers around an overworked waiter who delivers drinks to customers with flower heads, tube heads and one sporting a stack of three heads up top, and when the waiter decides to take a drink at work the whole thing becomes even stranger than before.

If you enjoy surreal animation, or have ever felt like you were losing your mind due to being overworked, then you'll definitely enjoy this odd little gem of a short.

Spectacular Venture Bros. Doc-Dusa Stop Motion Puppet

The Venture Bros. is one heck of an Adult Swim cartoon show, and fans can't get enough of the animated adventures experienced by Team Venture as they go through life being a super scientific dysfunctional family.

A recently aired episode entitled "Spanakopita" featured a stop motion segment created by the team responsible for the animated action figure antics of Robot Chicken- Stoopid Buddy Studios.

Lead fabricator Lauren Leigh created this amazing Doctor Venture Medusa Head for the Greek mythology themed dream segment, and it's such an incredible work of animation art that we felt like it was worthy of kudos and tons of shares. Spanikopita Lauren!

Dreamlike Photos Of Life On A Russian Farm

Idyllic scenes abound in this series of photographs by Elena Shumilova, which consists of portraits of her two boys Yaroslav and Vanya, and the animals they love on their family farm in Russia.

Elena took up photography in 2012 in order to document her boys as they were growing up, and the amazingly close relationship they have with the animals on the farm. The warmth of the natural lighting and the wonderfully lush environment that surrounds them makes each pic feel like a private glimpse into the moment a mystical bond is formed between child and critter.

Elena obviously puts a lot of love into her works, and it will be a delight to see which captured moments of her rustic life she chooses to share with the world through her photography in the coming years.

The SNES game Nightmare Busters has finally arrived, twenty years after it was featured in Nintendo Power magazine, and from the look of these fantastic screenshots fans of retro console gaming are about to go squee.

Spirited Away Sets Re-Created In Minecraft

(Video Link)

Hayao Miyazaki has become a household name because his animated features are some of the best in the biz, and fans particularly enjoyed Spirited Away, the story of a young girl who encounters mythological creatures and spirits out of Japanese folklore as she tries to find a way to save her family.

One such fan is animator Alan Becker, who is showing his love of Miyazaki by re-creating the world of Spirited Away in Minecraft. His designs are spot on and just as colorful as the originals, and even though he claims to be only 80% done with his virtual sets they already look 100% awesome!
