Beautiful Photos Of Coney Island In The 1960s

When many people hear the name Coney Island they think of beachside fun, amusement park rides and sideshow acts, but personally the Warriors always seems to spring to mind, and then the whole place seems somehow terrifying.

Truth is, Coney Island is both entertaining and frightening, charming and creepy in a uniquely Coney way, and back in the day it was the go-to destination for many New Yorkers looking for a mini vacay, and boy do those vintage hotspots make for great photo ops!

The photos in this particular series were taken by shutterbug Aaron Rose in the 1960s, part of an exhibition showing at the Museum of the City of New York called “In A World Of Their Own: Coney Island Photographs By Aaron Rose”.

Cast Of X-Men: Days Of Future Past Dance And Explore Fan Art

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

There’s something about talk show host Graham Norton that makes people want to act the fool around him, which makes his show great fun to watch and often changes my opinions about certain celebrities based on their appearance on his show.

The stars of the upcoming movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender hung out with Graham while he exposed them to semi-erotic fan art and strange fan fiction tales about the three men, Hugh exposes everyone to stories about running around the set naked, and then they get down to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines.

Meet Frane Selak, The Luckiest Unlucky Man To Ever Live

(Video Link)

Frane Celak has the dubious distinction of being the luckiest unlucky man in history, and he has survived so many vehicular disasters in his day they ought to sign him to the National Transportation Safety Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration!

Frane's amazing string of lucky escapes culminated in him winning the lottery, and now his story is being told in animated form thanks to this colorful short by This & That Visuals, with voice-over by John Block.

Animation seems like the perfect medium for telling Frane's tale, since his many escapes make it seem like he's living in a cartoon!

Norman Rockwell Inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Art

The Ninja Turtles have become pop culture icons since they were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in the 1980s, and the various video game, movie, toy and comic book incarnations that have come out since cemented their place in pop culture history.

However, their geeky fame is nothing compared to the overall popularity of the iconic artworks created by Norman Rockwell, who is generally seen as one of America’s greatest painters.

Well, it was only a matter of time before someone brought the Rockwell look to TMNT, and that someone is illustrator Bryan Lee, who has created a geek-tastic series that captures the look and feel of Rockwell with mutant turtles as the stars of each piece. Classic Cowabunga!

If Life Was Like A Video Game It Would Look Exactly Like SUPER LIFE

(Video Link)

Life is like a dream or a box of chocolates, life is hell, beautiful and golden, but if your life is like a video game then you probably have some pretty interesting stories to tell!

However, a video game based on real life has the potential to be quite boring, unless it’s something like the everyday found in SUPER LIFE, a video game inspired animated short by Eben McCue.

SUPER LIFE has all the ingredients of an average lifetime- a baby crawling out of the hospital, confusion and cooties on the playground, a football scholarship that leads to a job with a tech company, and finally a good old fashioned seaside burial.

New Mickey Mouse Animated Short - Fire Escape

(Video Link)

The creative animators at DisneyShorts have done a really good job of bringing Mickey Mouse back for fans young and old, and trying to get us all to forget about that awful looking called Mickey’s Clubhouse, which features some downright terrible CGI.

Since the release of the Mickey short Runaway Brain in 1995 the DisneyShorts division has succeeded in getting fans of that most famous mouse back on board, and Get A Horse! (2013) began a new wave of Mickey shorts with a snazzy new look.

Their latest short is called Fire Escape, and it continues the new old school series while retaining a lot of the comedic charm people have come to expect from Disney animated shorts.

Women And Children Who Look Like Michael Cera

Comedic actor Michael Cera has a very familiar face, and he has stated in interviews that he gets mistaken for other people on the street all the time, but what is it about his face that seems so familiar? Is it those gentle eyes, that pert nose, or that soft, downy moustache he sometimes sports in public?

It’s hard to put your finger on why Michael Cera looks so familiar, that is until you see this collection of Women and Children That Look Like Michael Cera (and one entire Michael Cera looking family), put together by those fun-loving folks at BuzzFeed.

Student Poses As Teenager From Every Decade In The Last Hundred Years

There’s a common misconception that young folks don’t care much about the past these days, since they’re too caught up in tech gadgets and social media, but teenager Annalisa Hartlaub aims to change that misconception with a school photography project where she imagines herself as a teenager from every decade over the last hundred years.

Her era specific photos find her as a mainstream teen on the left and a counter-culture teen on the right, and in addition to being a project about self exploration the photos also do a great job of showing how little styles have changed over the last hundred years.

Muscle Dancing

(Video Link)

Muscle Dancing is one of those strange videos that makes you wonder why the heck it was ever made, or what the stars were hoping to accomplish, besides driving the ladies wild!

Muscle Dancing is a unique video clip to say the least- it was taken from a Winnipeg public access show called Winnipeg Babysitter that aired back in the 70s and 80s, and even though it is virtually devoid of muscles, and the dancing looks like the trailer park version of Magic Mike, you gotta applaud these two cavalier fellows for their high self esteem and winning smiles! *grin*

Watch A Full Talking Heads Concert From 1978

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

The Talking Heads are often best remembered for hit songs like Burning Down The House and Psycho Killer, and that music video where David Byrne wears the suit with the ridiculously large shoulder pads, but they had to put in quite a bit of work touring and performing before achieving mainstream success with these popular songs.

They played 130 shows in 1978 alone, an epic year of touring that they admit left them "feeling pretty uninspired", and even though both of these concert videos were recorded in New York that year it's hard to tell that they're burned out on touring, because they put on an amazing show!

A Magical Kingdom Indeed! Disney Tarot Cards

It appears practitioners of the mystical arts are getting started at a rather early age these days, and thanks to accessories like these Disney Tarot cards by DeviantARTist D’Morte, the Arch-Druid of Tinver Moor, they can divine the future in animated style.

These colorful Tarot cards feature the major players in the world of Disney cartoons as each of the 22 figures in the Major Arcana, including Goofy as the Hanged Man, Pinocchio as the Fool, and Sorcerer Mickey as (what else!) the Magician.

They’re the cutest way to anger your ultra-religious parents, and a colorful way to get kids playing with a totally different kind of Magic cards.

The Doozers Are Back And Teaching Kids About Engineering

Do you remember the Doozers from Fraggle Rock? They were those little construction working cuties who were always trying to finish building stuff before a hungry Fraggle came along and ate up all their hard work.

They were tiny and green and adorable, and they seemed to know much more about construction than any Fraggle besides Travelling Matt, of course, because he knew everything!

Now the Jim Henson company is bringing the Doozers back in a brand new animated series to be released on Hulu. It's a fun way to teach kids about engineering, and any new project that may bring the Fraggles back is alright with me!

Amazingly Detailed Papercraft Addams Family House

Creepy TV families don’t come much more iconic than the Addams Family, and their home was like a museum of weirdness that made Dracula’s castle look like a gingerbread house.

Creative paper crafter Alan Ronay has created his own version of the Addams abode, complete with crazy taxidermy on the walls, Lurch's signature harpsichord, and many visual easter eggs only a true fan of the Addams Family will be able to spot.

Alan's Etsy shop EverydayMiniatures is where he sells many of his fancy fictional paper homes, from shows like the Golden Girls and I Love Lucy, but be forewarned- these mini estates cost a pretty penny.

Skeletal Sculptures Made Out Of Cassette Tapes

Now that music has gone from cassettes to discs to digital files what the heck are we supposed to do with all those leftover tapes?

Brian Dettmer has a pretty good idea of what to do with dead media, and his amazing skeletal sculptures are made out of cassette tapes which are melted ever so gently into bone shapes.

Brian’s works are so meticulously crafted that the tapes preserve much of their original integrity, like the album titles, the reels and the windows, and Brian's grasp of anatomy is so strong that his melted musical masterpieces have all the right parts in all the right places.

Bugs Are A Taste Sensation That's Sweeping The Nation

People around the world enjoy eating bugs- they’re a good source of protein, a renewable and plentiful resource, and there are enough flavor varieties to keep even the most jaded foodies coming back for more.

But Americans in general haven’t really embraced the concept of eating bugs, except for the occasional worm at the bottom of a bottle of tequila, but edible insects are a culinary delight that should be embraced, especially since so much of the pre-packaged food out there can’t compare to the vitamins and nutrients found in bugs.

Entomophagist Daniella Martin is the author of Edible: An Adventure Into The World Of Eating Insects, and her take on why we should all eat more bugs is enlightening and may change the way you think of those snacks that go squirm in the night.

Creative Father Makes Crazy Photo Manipulations Starring His Three Daughters

Being the proud father of three girls can be an adventure in itself, but real life adventures in fatherhood rarely make for epic photographs.

However, when daddy has some serious Photoshop skills he can turn even the most mundane fatherly activities into an epic scene straight out of a movie!

John Wilhelm is an IT Director at a Swiss university and the father of three adorable little girls, and he uses his digital art skills to spice up his family's home life by casting his daughters, and occasionally his wife, in imaginative adventures. The photos in his series are not only full of fantasy imagery- they're fantastically well made, and represent a father's love of both his art and his family.

How Well Do You Know Pokemon?

You can discover all of these facts and more by watching this video entitled How Well Do You Know The World Of Pokemon, brought to you by BuzzFeedPop.

Behind The Scenes Movie Photos You Can't Unsee

Behind the scenes photos from classic movies are a fun way for fans to learn more about the production process involved in making their favorite flicks, but when those photos present a disillusioning side of the Hollywood machine those fans may want to tear down their posters and put up pictures of their favorite cartoon characters!

It may be a bit disappointing to find out that Marlon Brando didn't memorize his lines so he needed cue cards, or that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was actually a miniature puppet and not a giant guy in a rubber suit (shocking, right?!) but that's why they call it movie magic!

Disneyland has undergone many changes since Walt first opened the gates back in 1955, and even though the lands, and the costumed characters that inhabit them, have changed quite a bit over the last sixty years many parts of Disneyland remain relatively unchanged.
