Ukranian Man Had Compulsive Graffiti Syndrome



A Ukranian man named Mitasov lived here, a man who suffers from a hyper-obsessive personality disorder which causes him to compulsively cover every surface in his house with layers of  inscriptions.

He can't help but etch his bizarre graffiti into everything-the fridge, walls, piano, doors, even the ceilings are covered by Mitasov's strange inscriptions.

However, some of his inscriptions are not so strange, like his sadly inspiring street art that can still be seen in Ukraine-"Happiness! I'm waiting for you here!"

Skywalking Is Not As Fun As It Sounds


(YouTube Link)

Why does something called Skywalking have nothing to do with Luke or Leia, or Star Wars for that matter? Because it's dumb, that's why. Skywalking is not the same as Planking, so don't even go there kiddies.

But that doesn't stop "daredevils" from risking their lives for attention and internet acclaim by Skywalking from such great heights that I tremble at the thought of looking down from way up there.

Not that I have a phobia or anything, it just isn't natural for people to be up that high without a net or a parachute!

Custom Arcade Cabinet That Plays Super Nintendo Cartridges



Well, I think the title pretty much sums this article up-this custom made arcade style cabinet plays any and all of your Super Nintendo cartridges like never before.

Arcade style SNES? Yes please! One player only gameplay? Noooooooo! Now I can't play Mortal Kombat, Clay Fighter or any of my favorite fighting games properly!

It was built by Reddit contributor Echoobrain, who will be posting step-by-step photos of the process shortly.

It looks like fun, but these console cabinets are bound to get better from here, right? Like maybe a four player cabinet? *wink*

3D Rage Faces--Forever Alone Statue



Designed to proudly share your Forever Alone status with the world, this Rage Faces inspired statue was first 3d printed then cast in an extremely limited run, so the creators Matt Scone and Sanden Henning could get a sense of what producing their own toy would cost.

Hopefully Matt and Sanden will consider casting another batch since the Forever Alone statue sold out so quickly, or maybe they'll continue the Rage Faces series so we can collect 'em all!

Cutting Edge Saw Blade Driver Crossbow



Have you ever been hanging around your workshop and thought to yourself "Gee, I sure wish I could launch circular saw blades at high speed, preferably from a crossbow with an awesome laser sight"?

Well, Patrick Priebe must have had the exact same vision, because he created the Blade Driver crossbow pictured above, and it looks like serious fun.

Trailer For An Amazing Looking Documentary- Samsara


(YouTube Link)

From the makers of Baraka comes a gorgeous looking documentary called Samsara, which takes you on a tour of some of the world's wildest places, and explores "the links between humanity and the rest of nature".

Director Ron Fricke shot Samsara on 70mm film, so it will look extra beautiful on the big screen when it premieres August 24th (hopefully) at a theater near you.

Ten Alien Species That Became Jedi Knights



Human Jedis are a dime a dozen, but Force sensitivity isn't limited to any particular race, species or planet, so all kinds of wild and wooly beings had their chance to wield a lightsaber.

i09 has put together a fun list of 10 aliens that represented their species and became one with the Force, any one of which would have made a great addition to the Star Wars movies.

Wookiee Jedi wielding a wooden lightsaber for the win!

Wire Mesh Sculptures By Shi Jindian



These wire mesh works by Chinese artist Shi Jindian may look like the wireframe view of a 3d object, or some sort of digital art projection, but these fantastically fine sculptures are the real deal, and they're constructed inch by inch from woven mesh.

Here's more on the process:
Shi Jindian process involves wrapping the wires around every square inch of the object and then carefully removing or destroying the object, leaving only its wire mesh skeleton

It's amazing how much detail Shi put into each piece, and the look of each object must change a bit depending on the direction the viewer is facing. Nicely wired indeed!

This Hamster Isn't Big On Sharing


(YouTube Link)

Can you blame this hamster for not wanting to share his snack with that greedy cat? If the tables were turned it wouldn't even occur to the cat to share his food with the little guy, so I can see why the hamster decided to pack it in and run.

What I don't understand is how he can let a cat get that close to him when their two species have been at war for centuries. Maybe the peace talks are working after all!

Trailer For Oddball Video Game Octodad: Dadliest Catch


(YouTube Link)

The indie game Octodad slipped under the radar for all but the most rabid gamers, but the premise sounds like pure gold-you are an octopus disguised as a human husband and father, who moves about like a....well, like an octopus wearing a suit and tie.

If that doesn't sound ridiculous enough, how about the fact that you somehow fathered human children in the game, and the goal of the original game is to build a mannequin so you can avoid having dinner with your wife!

A new, less buggy version is in the works, entitled Octodad: Dadliest Catch and it looks like a ridiculously good time, but check out the trailer and judge for yourself whether you'll be bringing Octodad 2 home when it comes out.

A Mummy Made From McDonald's Burgers



Artist BenEverywhere decided to drop $200 on McDonald's hamburgers in order to make this mummy/skeleton monstrosity.

Why would he do such a thing, you may ask? Because he wants to prove that McDonald's no longer makes food, they make a medium for morbid sculptures.

He combined the burgers with a little bit of resin to show the world that McDonald's food is so full of preservatives that it will literally last forever.

Well, I guess I'm adding a trip to McDonald's to my will, who needs embalming fluid when you've got the Big Mac?!

15 TV Shows Based On Comic Books That Didn't Make The Cut



Our friends at Comics Alliance have put together a list of TV shows based on comic books that never made it on the air, a sad memorial to what could have been and a reminder of why some stories simply won't work as live action shows.

Titles like The Amazing Screw-On Head, based on Mike Mignola's one-shot comic about a Civil War era robotic secret agent, and Locke & Key, the ghostly horror series fans have embraced but the networks have not, would have been great fun to watch, but we're left with only a pilot episode for each to whet our appetites.

Other titles, like Nick Fury Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D. starring David Hasselhoff, and the Smallville spinoff Aquaman Mercury Reef, are probably better off in the discard pile instead of cluttering up the small screen.

Take a look for yourself at this fascinating list of unwanted shows, some entries complete with video clip, and see what you don't have to look forward to watching on television.

LEGO Version Of 2001: A Space Odyssey



Now here's a LEGO construct that would make HAL 9000 proud: a LEGO version of the Discovery One from the seminal sci-fi flick 2001: A Space Odyssey, built from over 3,000 pieces at 1:60 scale, as well as a morbid Dawn Of Man diorama which is full of angry primates and a pile of LEGO bones!

The set was created by Jason Allemann, who was kind enough to include a construction guide PDF so that anybody with a pile of LEGO bricks and time on their hands can bring 2001 to their hobby table. Happy building!

Frank Welker Is The Voice Behind The Toons


(YouTube Link)

I'm sure you're familiar with Frank's work as a voice actor, even though you might not recognize his face or know his name.

He was the voice of Fred Jones in Scooby Doo, Doctor Claw in Inspector Gadget, Nibbler on Futurama and can be seen in the video above letting out a mighty roar for The Lion King.

His vocal talents have netted him a boatload of cash, and now you can put a face to the voices in your head!

3D Printed Darth Vader Lamp Shade



What could possibly make a lampshade shaped like Darth Vader even geekier? Why, printing it out with a 3d printer, of course!

Created by Zairy Zin (cool name!), this is one honey of a honeycombed helmet, and it sports an equally rich pricetag ($585).

Maybe, if all goes well,  Zairy will release the 3d file (for a fee) to the hungry Star Wars addicts across the globe who'd love to make this Darth Vader lamp right at home in their module.

All Star Bowling-Mad Men Vs. Nerdist


(YouTube Link)

The answer to the question that immediately came to mind when you saw this post is YES-John Hamm is a pretty good bowler, but he's an even better prankster, and he almost pulled off the old banana peel trick on Chris Hardwick!

Watch the two American institutions square off in that most American of indoor sports, and feel the Bromance brewing in the cold filtered air.

Corgis In The Sky And Other Oddities By Conrad Ruiz



Painter Conrad Ruiz will never be accused of lacking in imagination, nor will he catch flack for his misuse of color.

His watercolor paintings are an explosion of vibrant hues, pop culture references and an attempt to capture the look and feel of total chaos.

Conrad's other works employ repetition and rhythm to create an interesting optical effect, not necessarily an illusion as much as a field of fine detail for your eyes to get lost in forever.

Levi Mandel Does Some Strange Things With Photographs



Most photographers are content with taking and editing photos, but Levi Mandel can't leave well enough alone.

He feels the need to print out said photos, then he folds and bends and wrinkles them into some strange semblance of the original subject, then he shoots the photo again so we have something delightfully creepy to stare at.

You can check out more of Levi's discarded portraiture at the links below, take a gander before they end up in a pile of trash!

The Avengers Trailer From 1978


(YouTube Link)

This silly fan made movie trailer answers the question "what would a made-for-TV Avengers movie look like if it came out in 1978?"

The end result is all sorts of ridiculous, with Paul Lynde playing a schlocky version of Loki, and a guest appearance by KISS.

It would have been the best worst thing that ever could have happened to my childhood!

Bring The Clackety Clack To Your Desktop With The USB Typewriter Keyboard



If you're tired of how calm and quiet your office has become, bring a taste of the good old days to work with the USB typewriter keyboard.

Full of noisy key clacking and an undeniable charm, this stylish computer accessory is sure to get your co-workers talking about you, even if what they're saying is "shut that thing up!"

Uncharted Video Game Trilogy Cut Into Feature Length Movies


(YouTube Link)

To say that the Uncharted video game trilogy is the most cinematic gaming experience ever would be an understatement, and crafty editor morphinapg has spliced together the proof and put it on YouTube.

Each game in the series has been cut into an epic length movie, which speaks volumes about the major role storytelling plays in each game.

If you're afraid of spoilers because you haven't gotten around to playing the Uncharted trilogy yet, then don't watch the entire two to three hours of each video and your game won't be ruined.

Otherwise pop some corn, turn up your speakers and enjoy cinematic adventure game cutscenes at their very best.

Roosevelt The Off-Roading Dog



Shelter dog Roosevelt was born with deformed front legs, which made running around impossible for the poor little guy until his new owner Stephanie created this wheelchair rig for him.

Now Roosevelt likes to take his wheels off road, tearing it up and playing like a pup again.

Here's an inspiring word from his owner:
The only difference between Roosevelt and other dogs is that instead of a collar I snap on his wheels to take him out. … People think he should have been put down because they think he’s suffering. But he wakes up happy every day. If you had a child with a disability you’d try to enrich them, give them opportunities. So why not do the same with a dog?

Roosevelt has a sweet set of wheels, and a pretty sweet owner in Stephanie as well. Not bad for a dog considered by some to be destined for euthanasia, eh?!
