Things Are About To Get Rough On The Naked Streets Of New York



Have you ever heard of the Naked Cowboy?

He's the street performer who has become famous for singing songs in New York's Times Square wearing next to nothing.

Well, his gimmick has met with opposition in the form of the Naked Indian, a man who has decided to battle NC for the right to perform on the naked streets of New York.

It's like a grown up version of cowboys and indians, only much lamer and with less imagination.

Maybe they'll both be taken out by a mysterious Naked Buffalo!

Vocal Impression Of 151 Pokemon Characters


(YouTube Link)

This girl has an amazing vocal range, not for singing but rather for something far more important- imitating 151 characters from Pokemon!

I wonder if she's been developing these impressions since childhood, or is imitating Pokemon a newfound ability?

Scary Zombie Head Gumball Dispenser



This zombie head gumball dispenser is one gnarly piece of home decor, but what kind of sicko would want to take a gumball out of this disgustingly dessicated head?!

It would look right at home in a haunted house or the Munster's living room, and may horrify kids enough to put them off the sweet stuff for a while!

A Tribute To Classic Video Game Maps



There's something so warm and inviting about the maps that came with many classic fantasy themed video games.

Maybe it's the prospect of exploring all those brightly colored lands, or the whimsical little details and painterly style to be found in these incredible illustrations.

Whatever the attraction, I'm sure old school gamers will agree- these maps were so cool that they often stayed on the wall well after you beat the game!

Artist To Give Away Over 1,000 Pieces Of Art



Connecticut based artist Ted Mikulski has come up with a fun way to expose more people to art- he plans to give away over 1,000 of his own works to random people on the streets of Manhattan.

Ted feels this will be a good way to put a little color into the lives of those who aren't normally considered art lovers, but I'm sure these pieces will find their way into the hands of Ted's fans once they hear he's handing them out for free!

British Special Forces Used Exploding Rats Against The Nazis



This sounds like a plot element from the movie Inglorious Basterds, but it's true- British Special Forces used dead rats, among other things rigged with explosives, against Nazi forces during World War II.

Here's how those rat bombs were used:
But the most exotic device was the "explosive rat". A hundred of the rodents were procured by an SOE officer posing as a student needing them for laboratory experiments. The rats were skinned, filled with plastic explosive, and sewn up. The idea was to place a rat among coal beside a boiler. When they were spotted, they would immediately be thrown on to the fire, causing a huge explosion.

That was the theory. As one of the SOE files records: "This device caused considerable trouble to the enemy, but not quite in the way that was intended." The Germans intercepted the container of dead rats before they could be used for "operational purposes". But all was not lost. According to an SOE report, their discovery had an "extraordinary moral effect": the rodents were exhibited at all German military schools, prompting a hunt for "hundreds of rats the enemy believed were distributed on the continent".

SOE concluded: "The trouble caused to them was a much greater success to us than if the rats had actually been used."

(YouTube Link)

Do you have a bunch of boring photos sitting around inside your iPad or iPhone (with hopefully more platforms coming soon!), photos that lack tentacles and that ever elusive WTF factor?

Then you need Alex Pardee's Waycooler App!

It lets you stick all kinds of stuff on your pictures, making them (surprise!) waaay cooler!

It kinda makes me wish I had an iPad....aaaaand now I don't care anymore. Thanks Alex Pardee!

Bat Man of Shanghai is an upcoming DC Nation series which will feature an alternate version of old Batsy from 1930s China, and the feline temptress who's always on his tail.

Amazing LEGO Colosseum



This masterfully crafted colosseum sculpture was built by Ryan McNaught, a certified LEGO builder who used over 200,000 bricks to make what is arguably "the most challenging LEGO model ever created".

The piece is built with both the version from two thousand years ago and the modern version represented on either side, and it was so difficult to build that it gave Ryan a new respect for the ingenuity of Roman architecture.

Bravissimo Ryan!

Awesome Pencil Drawings By Paul Lung



I can't believe the detail and accuracy found in these pencil drawings by Paul Lung, and I imagine that a cat would choose that exact same bow tie if given a choice.

Paul Lung clearly breathes the airs of artistry quite freely, his bronchial tubes full of dander and inspiration, and hopefully he isn't allergic to his prized hairball pitching subjects.

*kitty voice* Now howsabout sketchin' me up some Meow Mix?

A Film Festival For Cat Videos



Everyone knows that cat videos rule teh interwebs, with their silly box jumping tactics and love of cheezburgers, so it was only a matter of time before someone gave them their own film festival.

Minneapolis' Walker Arts Center will be hosting the first ever Internet Cat Video Festival on August 30th, and it looks like a purrrrfectly fine festival to honor our feline friends.

Yes, little kittehs, you finally haz a cheezburger!

Y: The Last Man Fan Film


(YouTube Link)

This incredibly well made fan film is based on the Vertigo comic book Y The Last Man, which centers around an apocalyptic setting where everyone on Earth with a Y chromosome is wiped out, except for a guy named Yorick and a monkey named Ampersand.

The film is entitled Y:The Last Man Rising, it was made by IGN and Drake 1129 productions, and it does a great job of adapting the comic book into film format.

I don't think Y would work very well as a feature film, but a TV series or a series of short films would be really fun to watch!

As an extra organized bonus, kitsovereign has also created a chart which categorizes the images according to their in-game mission, which can be found at the Kotaku link below.

Comedy Video - Unlikely Dark Knight Quotes


(YouTube Link)

This collection of unlikely Batman quotes are brought to you by Chicago's own Octavarius, a group of folks known for bringing the funny.

You're unlikely to hear Batman say any of these lines in the new Dark Knight movie, so you'll just have to imagine how much better the film would be if he talked about Tumblr, hated on Pez dispensers and sang I Swear by All 4 One!

This Is One Sharp Looking Ruler



This machete shaped ruler by Palehorse is strictly for hardcore measuring, and not for settling schoolyard arguments.

It has a deadly cool style and the lovely warmth of natural wood, one sharp looking inch at a time.

It won't help you cut a path through the jungle, but it'll make it easy to measure the length of the spider latched onto your face!

Jaw Dropping Shark Attack Bench



Forget about that boring old park bench, plant your keister on this shark bench...if you dare!

This shark attack bench is on display at a shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, and it was clearly installed to drum up business for the local shark repellent store.

Fan Made G.I. Joe Video Game


(YouTube Link)

It's hard to believe that this G.I. Joe video game is fan made, and available to download for free!

Attack Cobra Island plays like a classic sidescrolling arcade brawler, and even though it isn't the prettiest fan made game I've ever seen, it has lots of retro charm and looks like more fun to play than the original G.I. Joe game on the NES.

If only someone would make a G.I. Joe game where you can play as Cobra...

Beautifully Surreal Anatomical Art



These gorgeously inaccurate anatomical artworks are by Valerio Carrubba, an Italian artist with a penchant for combining images of what lies beneath the skin with the beauty of the natural world.

His works are inspired by anatomical artists of the past, such as Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery and Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty, but he adds an interesting background element to form a complete, if somewhat disgusting, picture.

This Little Drummer Boy Really Rocks


(YouTube Link)

Attention rock drummers-watch out for this little drummer boy, because he's poised to take the music industry by storm before he hits puberty.

The talented kid featured in this video is Jaxon Smith, which is already a cool name for a rocker, and he has some serious skills on the drums that didn't come from playing Rock Band.

Watch him play along to the Foo Fighters hit Pretender, at six years old he keeps a beat better than most bar band drummers!

Comic Con's Creepiest Exclusive



Comic Con exclusive merchandise just got a little darker thanks to Activision, makers of the upcoming Walking Dead video game.

They're hooking up 100 lucky consumers with this grisly replica of the ear necklace worn by Darryl in the AMC TV series.

Whether these lucky people will have the nerve to wear this freaky piece of television memorabilia around the Con is another matter entirely.

Interactive Murals By Ernest Zacharevic



These awesome murals by Ernest Zacharevic really make the buildings on which they're painted come alive, and add a whimsical touch to the town.

Ernest's paintings range from entire walls to subtle little pieces, and they all look like they're interacting with the environment, and objects, around them.

Animated Short - What Is Dead May Never Die


(Vimeo Link)

What Is Dead May Never Die is a techno trip in the way back machine, with oodles of retro charm and an electro-pop soundtrack to match.

Created by experimental animator Kadavre Exquis, this is an homage to the warm glow of old computer screens tempered with bits of video footage and lovely cascading pixels.

Hungary's Red Sludge Disaster Zone Two Years Later



There's a section of Hungary known as the red sludge disaster zone, where the land was ravaged by toxic waste in 2010 and now looks like a surreal martian landscape devoid of human life.

The photos in this series were taken by Palíndromo Mészáros for American Photo, and they capture the colorfully barren nature of the ruined Hungarian landscape.

Hit the link below if you want to see the rest, they make a rather clear statement about the devastating effects a toxic waste spill can have on the environment.

Rubber Bands Vs. Watermelon


(YouTube Link)

How many rubber bands does it take to make a watermelon explode from the pressure? The world may never know....

Oh wait, some guys in Korea already figured that out waaaaay back in 2008 (that's like the 1950s in blog years), and the answer might come as a surprise.

Well, not as surprising as one rubber band, but watch anyway and find out for yourself!

The Psychedelic Works Of Keiichi Tanaami

These eye popping, neon colored illustrations are by Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami, who wants to feed warped imagery to your head until it explodes!

Inspired by a trip to NYC in the 1960s, during which he had the good fortune to meet Andy Warhol, Keiichi went home with a head full of dreams and started creating these far out works of psychedelic art.

Fan Film - Indiana Jones And The Jungle Spider


(YouTube Link)

A very young fan of Indiana Jones asked his father to help him make this adorable fan film, in which young Logan plays Doctor Jones of course.

Watch as he searches for the elusive Tiki looking ceramic thingy missing from his collection, all the while trying to avoid being bitten by a rather nasty looking spider.

Oh, kids these days, what will they come up with next?!

I Guess Those Helmets Aren't Blaster Proof After All



This grisly act of cosplay should serve as a warning against fighting for the Dark Side - don't join up if you value your good looks.

I've seen zombie stormtroopers before, but this one takes the cake and utilizes anatomy and backstory to maximum gory effect.

If you see this guy wandering around, don't point at him or he just might bite off your finger!

An Amazing Array Of Custom Action Figures



Figure modder elvis1976 knows his way around the clays and the plastics, and he creates unique versions of popular comic book characters that show his deep love for the funny books.

Of particular note are his versions of Tank Girl, Cable and the baby (pictured above), a movie version of Big Daddy from Kick Ass, and a Dark Knight that would make Frank Miller proud.

The Trololo Kid


(YouTube Link)

Remember the Trololo guy, aka Mr. Trololo?

He entertained us all with his unique vocal stylings and theatrical performance before he sadly passed away at age 77.

Well, the kid in this video may be the chosen one who will carry on his legacy, if he ever learns how to sing...

Watch him ham it up in a uniquely Trololo fashion, it sure squeezed the chuckles outta me!
