Stitch had always been a fan of the greats- Elvis Presley, Don Ho and Chubby Checker, just to name a few, but when he got his hands on an early David Bowie record his little alien life was changed forever. He heard Major Tom calling out to Ground Control and imagined his former life in the cosmos, listened to tales about Ziggy Stardust battling Spiders from Mars and remembered battles he'd fought in the days before the big Aloha...
Show the world you have good taste in animation and music with this Stitchy Stardust t-shirt by Fishbiscuit, it's, like, tha coolest!
Folks who have to wear a suit to work on a daily basis know what a pain it is to put on their suit piece by piece, only to take it all off again as soon as they get home.
If only there was a simple solution to this dressing dilemma:
Well now there is, thanks to San Francisco based inventor/venture capitalist Jesse Herzog and his unique creation the Suitsy- a suit-onesie hybrid that makes it stupidly simple to get all dressed up.
The Suitsy combines the sophisticated style of a business suit with the unified ease and comfort of a onesie, and might be just what the terminally lazy need to ensure they're properly dressed for work.
Here’s the 411 on the funky fashion faux pas brought to life by Betabrand:
The Suitsy is a jacket connected to a shirt connected to pants. A zipper is hidden behind the shirt button placard (with false buttons) and pants zipper. Fake shirt cuff material extends from the end of the jacket sleeves to give the impression of an actual complete dress shirt worn underneath. It’s like if a jumpsuit and a business suit had a lovechild.
Parents like to tell their children that broken dolls or teddy bears will be taken to the doll hospital for medical attention, to fill their young minds with a sense of wonder and spare them from the fact that their beloved toy is beyond repair.
I've always assumed the doll hospital was a product of some caring parent’s imagination, but as these photographs by Jason Reed prove the doll hospital is a real, and magical, place after all.
The Sydney Doll Hospital has been repairing cherished children’s toys since 1913, bringing dolls both plastic and porcelain, teddy bears and many other types of toys back to life with tender loving care.
Jason's photographs reveal the specialized skills involved in this labor of love, and the people who gladly use their crafting know-how to make children's lives a bit brighter.
When a bunch of frat boys started brawling their yuppified brains out on the LSU parade grounds one intrepid reporter dared to film the fight with his smartphone, adding his own comedic reactions to the tragic scene:
His name is Skinny Vadamalez, and he just happened to find himself ringside for the Greek letter organization battle of the month, which gave birth to a brief yet hilarious video he called "When White People Fight".
Skinny's emoting skills are sure to land him a job providing silent color commentary for the UFC, and his candid footage may lead to several arrests!
Salvador Dali wasn’t known for being a particularly spiritual person, although he believed that he was a reincarnation of his dead older brother.
He believed in mathematics and science over religion or superstition, but he was also known for capitalizing on a trend or two in order to make a quick buck.
The profit driven side of Dali led him to create an illustrated version of the twelve signs of the Zodiac, which were released in 1967 as limited edition lithographs meant to capitalize on public's renewed interest in all things astrological.
Dali replaced the Cancer crab with a lobster, as an homage to his earlier works, but left the rest of the Zodiac icons virtually unchanged, his surrealist vision focused on the use of color and texture rather than the radical reconstruction of their forms.
Tim Burton is known for his kooky creature creations, his dark and quirky sense of humor, and the touch of classic cinematic style he adds to every film, and since he's always reinventing himself fans will always find something new to love about his movies.
Burton has created many different kinds of films, such as supernatural comedies, stop motion animated fantasies, dark sci-fi flicks and lighthearted family films, and now he's adding a new genre to his collection- the biographical drama.
Spock had always been a fan of revolution, especially when it involved people fighting for their basic rights against an unjust ruler, but there was something about Earth's 1960s that really captured his imagination. He pictured himself marching on Washington, giving extremely logical speeches about how all people should be treated equally, and shouting "Power to the People!" while sporting a shaggy afro wig. But when the crew of the Enterprise saw Spock marching around the corridors shouting and pumping his fist in the air they knew something had to be done about this flight of fancy before the whole thing became another protest related tragedy...

If the super secret agency known as SHIELD ever had to choose a color to represent their agency chances are they'd choose either black or metallic silver. Black is the color of stealth, the nothingness of midnight and the ever present forces of evil they battle against, metallic silver is the color of the weapons, be they guns or power armor, they use to take down the bad guys. Separately these colors mean business, but together they spell total destruction for anyone who messes with SHIELD!
Declare your allegiance to the mightiest spy network in the universe with this Metallic Shield t-shirt by Alecxps, and show those supervillains who's boss!

As we become more reliant on technology in our everyday lives our relationship with the digital age becomes more complicated, and we find ourselves growing more accustomed to having a part of our lives that is purely digital.
Between entertainment, social media and mundane tasks like shopping or banking we’re constantly relying on technology to keep us linked in to a global digital network driven by interaction, but aren't we losing a bit of ourselves in the process?
Melbourne-based artist Catherine Tipping created these masterfully hand stitched portraits that reflect our complicated relationship with the digital age, portraits of people losing a bit of themselves to the digital world.
Catherine's subjects are in the process of being interrupted by digital static and pixelation, like our modern minds are constantly being interrupted by the digital technology that surrounds us.
It’s hard to believe the MTV of today was once a network devoted to music, and thriving subcultures based around music, instead of cheesy reality shows and decidedly non-musical content.
MTV has begun to show music videos once again, but it's safe to say they will never be the trend setters they once were, as this amazing documentary called Punks and Poseurs that aired in 1985 will demonstrate.
This freakin’ rad, totally cutting edge (for its time) concert video features performances by bands like the Dickies and GBH, and footage of perfectly punk writers Pleasant Gehman and Iris Berry trashing the influx of "poseurs" making their way into the L.A. punk scene in the mid-80s.
Taking pride in your costume on Halloween doesn’t mean you have to spend a ton of money on a custom made or professional grade costume, nor does it mean you have to be a talented costumer to create something that looks amazing.
All you really need to create the costume of your dreams are some inspirational images, a few construction guidelines and the right supplies.
Thanos sees the universe as his personal property, full of people and planets to do with whatever he pleases, but he didn't count on the power of one lord of time and his sonic screwdriver. When a blue police box passed through a sector of the galaxy currently under attack by Thanos' forces the titan had to have it for his own. It was just his bad luck that The Doctor hadn't ever heard any tales about Thanos' might, so he didn't know better than to bring the fight to that big, ugly brute...
When you wear this The Titan's Blue Box t-shirt by Fmm3 you're sharing a tale of intergalactic adventure with the world, and you'll probably inspire people to write some far out fan fiction!
Children’s books are full of large, illustrated pages oozing with visual appeal, and fun stories crafted to captivate young minds, and when we're all grown up we look back fondly on the times when our parents read our favorite books to us before bed.
So what could have possibly made those beloved children's books even more memorable?
How about gritty covers, with catchy titles like Mummy's Breaking Point, The Futility of Existence, or that all-time classic Lassie Gets Even:
Photoshop funster Bag of Delights created these delightfully dark children's book covers, adding madcap titles to the original artwork to ensure that these twisted tales leave their mark on impressionable young minds.
These twisted cover creations aren't going to make their way onto store shelves anytime soon, but the idea of a kid reading a book about Episcopalian pirates or Death Cults is a bit of a knee slapper!
There are many reasons why someone would choose to turn their back on the city and start a new life in the wilds, and yet very few people actually see the move as a feasible option.
Noise, neighbors, pollution, high rent prices and an overwhelming desire to get in touch with nature are all popular reasons for leaving life in the urban jungle behind, but those who actually make the transition are immediately labeled as hermits.
Photographer Danila Tkachenko spent some time with those who dwell in woodland homes far removed from human society, and her intimate portraits reveal the quaint, and often kooky, way of life chosen by these modern day hermits.
There’s a compelling story being told by the photographs in Danila's revealing series Escape- a tale of solitary sadness, survival, and the effects of spending too much time alone with your thoughts.
Most of Norman Rockwell's paintings are considered lighthearted and fun, rendered with an incredible degree of realism that really sets the scene in each of his artworks.
Nowadays, artists apply the Rockwell name to any artwork rendered in a similar style, or with similar character staging, even if there's nothing Norman about the piece.
The digital paintings of OnlyMilo (Ruiz Burgos) deserve to be compared to Rockwell's works, and his realistic treatments of DC Comics heroes and villains make you feel like you’re on the scene, watching something spectacular happen right before your eyes.

People have created some pretty cool time lapse selfie videos over the years, but never has anyone shown more commitment to the bit than YouTuber dumo, who spent every day of 8 years creating the ultimate stop motion celebration of his face.
Dumo's taste in clothing changes, and his skin looks a bit weathered here and there, but one thing remains constant throughout 98% of the video- his stoic facial expression.
The most impressive segment of his selfie video (around 2:40) involves a scene from Karate Kid playing in the background, a masterful editing feat dumo admits was a pain in the neck to get just right. Wax on, wax off dumo...

Harry has a lot in common with those superheroes found on the pages of comic books- he has an interesting backstory, a supernatural power he must learn to control, and a responsibility to help save his fellow man from the forces of evil. The one thing he was missing was a sweet t-shirt with his logo on it, so he followed in the footsteps of some of his favorite heroes and created a design that looked just like the lightning bolt shaped marking on his forehead.

Everyone on Earth had always assumed The Invaders were just something game designers made up for their arcade game Space Invaders, and because of our lack of interplanetary knowledge they were able to invade unopposed. Good thing so many gamers had played this game before, because they knew how to get the best of those pixelated ships moving in horizontal bands across the sky. Suddenly someone suggested shooting a small hole through our own defenses, so the defenders could shoot them while staying behind cover, and the gamers knew then that victory was well in hand...
Bring the battle for coin-op domination home with this Earth vs The Invaders t-shirt by Piercek25, it's the perfect attire whether you're heading out for a night on the town with a pocket full of quarters or just kicking back at home with a good movie.
Many board games are created to be enjoyed by the entire family, and the idea of family game night was definitely helped along by toy manufacturers eager to sell more copies of their games.
Playing a board game with your parents is way more fun than taking candid family portraits, or watching their old home movies for the millionth time, but then again some family style games can feel like pure torture.
Toy enjoyer Attaboy hosted an episode of the web series “They Actually Made That!?” dealing with the strange and violent board games of yesteryear, from the family friendly Russian Roulette game Cold Feet to the hammer smashing "fun" of Bash!
Travelling can be incredibly fun, an adventure full of unexpected discoveries, cultural exploration and visual delights, but it can also be a huge pain in the neck.
Between the ever changing TSA rules, lost luggage, and the singular joy of riding elbow to elbow with your fellow passengers on a crowded airplane there are plenty of annoyances waiting for you every time you travel.
There are a few “tips” that shouldn’t have made the list, like putting your phone into airplane mode to save battery power, but with 40 tips on the list there’s bound to be something shared that you’ve never thought of before!
This bust of Lenin was Russia's response to the U.S. setting up a research station at the South Pole in the 1950s- Russian scientists placed this "research station" in the most difficult spot to reach in Antarctica, then they planted a cherry on top shaped like Lenin's head.
A bust in the middle of nowhere almost makes sense, but creating an art installation modeled after a Prada store in the middle of nowhere...now that's highbrow!
There's a full stock of merchandise inside the store, but there aren't any cash registers, or doors for that matter, as creators Elmgreen & Dragset intend to let the building slowly become one with the high desert.
Speaking of a structure with no customers- there's one and only one movie theater in the middle of Egypt's Sinai Desert, but they haven't had a customer for years:
The End of the World Cinema was built just over a decade ago by an unnamed French man who had the seats, projection equipment, a screen and a generator trucked in, hoping to start a cinematic sensation.
