Wear The Dovahkiin Helmet And Be Awesome



Are you tired of returning to the real world, after epic length Elder Scrolls: Skyrim gaming sessions, without some way to show the world just how obsessed you are with the game? Well then, this fleece Dovahkiin helmet must be yours! Just don't try to use it as an actual piece of battle armor, or you're in for a massive headache.

Sculptures Made From Sheets Of Paper



These fabulously detailed paper artworks by Peter Callesen create form with negative space, style from their almost generic non-style, and the frame is often used as a sort of mini stage for the scene. It's amazing what people are doing with paper these days!

This Kung Fu Flick Is Full Of WTF Moments


(YouTube Link)

The strangeness of the Kung Fu film known as "Demon of the Lute" goes well beyond language barriers and cultural idioms. This movie is downright nutty, even the YouTube description sounds crazy:

Bear witness to Yuan Fei's heroic struggle against the soulless ginger, Red Haired Evil, and his logic-defying pal, Eagle Man. Shazam!

Isn't it nice to get a little craziness mixed in with our martial arts action once in a while? I, for one, love the Red Haired Evil's magnetic personality, and to say he's having a bad hair day is an understatement.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Tauntaun



This is what the Empire Strikes Back would have looked like if it was released by stop motion animation pioneers Rankin Bass. The only thing I don't like about this illustration is the thought of Rudolph the Tauntaun getting gutted by Hermey/Han Solo and used as a meat sleeping bag, but at least he comes with a built-in nightlight!

Urinal Video Games Are A Ridiculous Reality



This urinal video game allows you to control a slalom skier via *ahem* your stream, as you try to reach the finish line before you're finished emptying your bladder. And while this might sound like fun after lifting a few pints, I can't imagine it's going to last long in the typical men's bathroom, what with all the graffiti artists and *ahem* wetness everywhere.

OMFG Mini Figures Channel The Power of MUSCLE



As a kid growing up in the 1980s, I loved me some M.U.S.C.L.E. Men toys! These kooky little mini figures were superbly sculpted, featured some far out character designs, and they were the perfect size to launch from a slingshot.

Now, twenty odd years later,  October Toys' has released a new line called "OMFG Mini Figures" which faithfully channels the charm and style of the original M.U.S.C.L.E. toys, and just might incite the same kind of collector's mania. Check out these super sculpts, in various Pantone colors, at the link below.

A Giant Christmas Tree Made Out Of LEGOs



This 33 foot tall LEGO Christmas tree was unveiled last week in London's St. Pancras International Station. It's made out of 600,000 bricks, features ornaments made out of LEGOs and took over two months to build. Hopefully the children who visit the station won't be tempted to take the towering plastic tree apart!

This Serbian Textbook Is Raising Arizona



Why are Nic Cage, Holly Hunter and the baby from the 1987 movie Raising Arizona on the cover of this Serbian biology textbook? Your guess is as good as mine, but I'd be willing to bet this image wasn't used with the studio's permission!

Accordion Version Of Super Mario Bros. Theme Song


(YouTube Link)

After hearing this Bulgarian accordionist version of the Super Mario Bros. theme song, i'm starting to rethink Mario's heritage. Maybe he spent some time in Bulgaria as a kid, or he has a Bulgarian doppelganger, because this song sounds so Mario!

Some Of The Best Worst Album Covers Ever



Tastes change from decade to decade, but I can't imagine that the album covers in this gallery were ever considered to be very cool. These are the album covers your Polka loving uncle might have owned in the 1970s, with covers cheesy lovable enough to overshadow whatever terrible music is pressed onto the record.

Etch A Sketch X NES Gamepad Hack


(YouTube Link)

If you ever wanted finer control over your Etch-A-Sketch lines, then you may want to consider splicing in a NES controller! Here's the process as described by Alpinedelta32, the creator of this brilliant mod:

I connected the etch-a-sketch knobs to stepper motors, which are then controlled by an Arduino microcontroller. The Arduino program I wrote takes signals from the NES controller and sends them as stepper motor control instructions.

Low tech toys meets high tech mod, this is what geeks do with their toys when they grow up!

Animal Poses As Iron Maiden Mascot Eddie



We all know that Animal from the Muppets likes to rock out on the drums, and occasionally he likes to destroy things at random, so posing as Iron Maiden cover mascot Eddie was a no brainer. The only thing missing is a hapless victim and a heavy metal soundtrack!

Photo-Realistic Paintings Of Food



If you prefer your comfort food without all the calories, then the photo-realistic paintings of Pamela Michelle Johnson may be just the thing you need this holiday season.

With all the warm, rich colors of real food, these food paintings are not only drool inducing, they're also massive in scale, typically over five feet square! Check out the delicious gallery at the Flavorwire link below, but try not to lick the screen.

Ralph Steadman's Vision Of Wonderland



Self proclaimed Gonzo Illustrator Ralph Steadman decided to take on Alice in Wonderland in 1967, and he brought his usual flair for warped character designs and messy style to Alice's fantastic world. The oddity of Steadman's style seems like normalcy when related to Wonderland.

There's a great gallery of images at the article link below, including another Lewis Carroll work Steadman brought to life with his illustrations called "The Hunting Of The Snark".

Cartoon Eyes Street Art By Timm Schneider



It's funny how much personality you can add to inanimate objects simply by attaching a pair of cartoon eyes. Cookie monster trash cans, hungry trash cans, bashful locked outlets, Timm Schneider's street art would be a pleasure to come across in the urban jungle.

Fashion In The Year 2000, According To The 1930s


(YouTube Link)

Further proof that the future isn't as cool, or cheesy according to your taste, as everyone thought it would be. The top fashion designers of the 1930s contributed their idea of 21st century fashion to this newsreel, and I for one am very glad that they were wrong about some things, or else men would dress like astronaut clowns and women would be wearing aluminum dresses!
