How they got there is a backstory you'll have to create for yourself...

Almost 5,000 Flip Flops Wash Ashore On Chili Beach

In an epic display of environmental cleanup, volunteers gathered almost 5,000 flip flops (thongs to Australians) that had washed up on the shore of Cape York's Chili Beach in Queensland.

It took marine conservation group Tangaroa Blue Foundation nearly a week to clean up the entire beach, and flip flops weren't the only things gathered, although from the look of the photos they make up the overwhelming majority of the mess.

I'm pretty sure a similar pile could be found on most beaches here in California. I wonder how many complete pairs were found?

Protect Your Identity And Look Creepy At The Same Time

This pixelated hood upgrades the creepy factor inherent in most ski masks, and makes anyone who wears one look like some sort of Minecraft killer.

It's called The Pixelhead, and was created by Martin Backes to serve as "media camouflage, completely shielding the head to ensure that your face is not recognizable on photographs taken in public places without securing permission."

It'll set you back almost $200, but isn't your anonymity worth a couple hundred bucks?

How Skyrim Should Have Ended

(YouTube Link)

I'm pretty sure that the hardcore gamers in the world have gotten their fill of the video game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but in case you're waiting for the perfect time to pick up this epic gaming experience you should skip this spoiler-ish video and buy the game already!

The rest of us who've spent plenty of time in Skyrim will enjoy this animated short instead, which is part of the ongoing Machinima series How It Should Have Ended.

Photographing The Yakuza Crime Family

Photographing the Yakuza crime family sounds like a dangerous task, but Anton Kusters seems to have no problem mingling with mobsters and getting some amazing shots.

He spent two years capturing images from within the Yakuza subculture, after ten months of negotiation which granted Anton access very few Westerners have ever received.

I'm surprised Anton made it out in one piece, but the images he came back with were worth the ordeal!

A Pillow That Wraps You Up Like A Cozy Taco

This delightfully taco shaped pillow thingy is called the Blandito, and it kind of resembles a human version of a doggy bed when laid flat.

When it's time to get all cozy, you can use the attached loops and balls to make the Blandito into the soft fluffy shell shape, and you become the snuggly taco fillings....sweet dreams!

Comedy Video - Too Much Olympics

(YouTube Link)

If you've already had it with the 2012 Olympic games, then you'll relate to what these goofy puppets have to say in this comedy video entitled Too Much Olympics.

It warns us about the dangers of having the Olympics broadcast on television year round, and the horror of including an event called the Truffle Shuffle!

Nazi Sub Discovered Off The Coast Of Nantucket

Have you ever wondered how close the U.S. got to being attacked by the Nazis during World War II?

According to a recent discovery about 70 miles off the coast of Nantucket.

The German U-550 submarine was sunk by a coordinated barrage of depth charges, deck guns and a fierce ramming by the USS Gandy, and we've been looking for the remains ever since.

On July 23rd, 2012, a research team led by Joe Mazraani saw their sonar dreams come true when the notorious sub was finally discovered.

Incredibly Detailed Sculptures By Kris Kuksi

Artist Kris Kuksi creates "mixed media assemblages" from, among other things, various bits of model kits, including the stuff that's usually discarded.

His works are chaotic scenes of wonder, full of cyber-Rococo style and bold, iconic figures lurking within a landscape that resembles a post-apocalyptic junkyard.

Kris has cemented his place as an artistic superstar, with over 100 exhibitions and multiple awards under his belt, and the fact that Kris has a quote about his works from Guillermo del Toro on the front page of his website is pretty freakin' impressive!

Batman Stop Motion Animation Made With Action Figures

(YouTube Link)

The one thing this stop motion version of the Batman: Dark Knightfall trailer's missing is moving mouths on the characters.

It was made using hyper-realistic action figures from the Hot Toys line, and the figures give surprisingly good performances!

It's good to see the Heath Ledger version of Joker again, even if only in toy form.

The Wizard Of Oz Starring Gary Busey

Let's all petition Hollywood studios to remake The Wizard Of Oz, except we'll make them cast Gary Busey in each and every role.

Flying Busey monkeys, Busey faced munchkins, and Glinda Busey the Good Witch, oh my!

I wonder if this will spawn a Tumblr dedicated to images with Busey's face 'shopped on everything- let the insanity begin!

Animated Short - Mountain

(Vimeo Link)

This animated short is called Mountain, and even though it was created with minimalist vector shapes it's rich with depth, animated motion and expression.

It was created by David Prosser of Studio AKA, and it was inspired by a trip he took to Seoul, South Korea.

I really like the character designs, and the story kept me entertained until the very end. Enjoy!

Playground Designed By Friends With You

A mall in Hong Kong has a playground designed by art collective Friends With You, and I am soooooo jealous!

Not that I'd fit on any of the playground equipment, and I guess it would look a bit creepy if I was just hanging out digging on the whimsical candy striped playground.

I guess it's better if I experience the Friends With You playground experience on the interwebs after all...

Morphing Figures By Joram Roukes

These edgy artworks by Joram Roukes depict characters that appear to be in the middle of morphing into something else entirely, an abstract concept which works quite well with Joram's style.

It's all at once messy yet detailed, looks like a collage yet is fully painted, and the blending of realistic and cartoon styles make them really pop on the canvas.

Custom Built Warhammer 40K Servo Skull

This awesomely gruesome Servo Skull sculpture was created by Spooky777, who used a medical skull model to give it a realistic edge and plenty of ewww factor.

In the world of Warhammer 40k:
SERVO-SKULLS are drone-like devices fashioned from human skulls [...] and then given a rudimentary Machine spirit, support systems, and anti-gravity engine to allow them to hover and drift bodiless through the air.

If nothing else, this sculpture will make for a great conversation piece!

Hair + Architecture = Hairchitecture

The project known as Hairchitecture presents the challenge of combining hair and architecture into an extremely geometric cut.

Ranging from downright silly (pictured above) to much tamer stepped cuts, this Hairchitecture thing will probably catch on at salons across the globe, then there will be nothing left but to shave our heads!

Marvel Unleashes The All Winners Squad

I was overjoyed when I found out that Marvel is making an animated web series called All Winners Squad, which features Howard the Duck and some lesser known characters like Squirrel Girl, Hypno Hustler and Ruby Tuesday (the dome headed super not the restaurant chain).

This reject squad series looks like it will be a laugh riot, but they'd better do right by that Duck or I will seethe with nerd rage!

The Avengers Hit The Town

Now that the Avengers have once again saved the world, it's time for a little R&R- running and romping!

Watch as they chase a downright fugly version of Loki around town, pausing to take in the occasional guitar solo or to harass drivers.

The Avengers have assembled, and they are looking a bit disheveled.

Fargo - A Documentary

(YouTube Link)

Fargo is the Coen Brothers movie that had everyone going around saying "dontcha know" and "you betcha!" for a while way back in the mid-90s, and it's so highly regarded that it was inducted into the U.S. National Film Registry for being "culturally significant."

It's one of those rare multi-genre movies that actually works, and watching this making-of documentary made me love Fargo even more than before.

The Giant Kuratas Battle Mech

You don't want to mess with Suidobashi Heavy Industry, or they will unleash their newest creation upon you- the KR01 Kuratas Battle Mech.

Standing 13 foot tall and sporting some rather menacing hardware, this badass million dollar robo-suit might be the future of mechanized combat, once they set it up to fire live ammo.

Currently, the Kuratas fires 6000 BB rounds when the pilot flashes a smile, so you might not be safe even if you're on the pilot's good side.

Driftwood Doilies By NeSpoon

These driftwood doilies make the beach look like it has been invaded by spiders spinning lace webs, adding an air of mystery and a touch of delicate grace seaside.

Created by Polish outdoor artist NeSpoon then placed on wooden scraps littered across Oak Beach along the Baltic Sea, the artist was pleased to discover that the public really enjoyed the driftwood doilies for the week or so that they survived.

Perhaps the lace spiders will return again next year, to produce more eye pleasing woven doilies for beachcombers to admire.
