Hybrid Tadixermist Arrested For Using Endangered Species



Artist and Taxidermist Enrique Gomez de Molina creates hybrid animals by combining parts from different species into one new, and quite spectacular looking, creature that unfortunately may contain endangered species. Here's the story:

According to the report, he is charged with possessing the skins of a Java kingfisher, collared kingfisher, bird of paradise, and juvenile hawk-eagle as well as the carcasses of a slow loris and a mouse deer, all from Indonesia.

The artist had not obtained the required permits to import the animal parts, and police claim De Molina knew what he was doing was illegal as he asked the people he bought them from to wrap them in carbon paper, according to the MN Times.



The artist claims that he aimed to raise awareness with his work to the danger faced by a range of species...

His creations are interesting, but knowingly using endangered species is just plain wrong, and a terrible way to supposedly "raise awareness ...to the danger faced by" these animals.

Santa's Eight Derpy Raindeer



There is something very wrong with Santa's reindeer, like rabies or some sort of nerve related affliction, because they're twitching out all over the place in these creepy cute animated GIFs by Mel Roach.

They're perfect for watching, looking at, or just plain ignoring as they flail around on your screen. Happy holidays!

This Room Is Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind



This psychedelic habitat looks like a great place to *ahem* sit around with friends and laugh at stuff. Part of the Nautilus House in Mexico City, a conceptual abode that's shaped like a giant shell, it looks perfect for entertaining and terrible for getting any kind of serious work done.

Take a mini tour of this tripped out pad, including the original concept art that inspired the architecture, at the link below.

Cool Mosaic Portraits Of Geek Icons



These mosaic portraits of geek gods, such as Bill Gates and the creator of Space Invaders Tomohiro Nishikado, are cleverly constructed by Charis Tsevis using thousands of tiny images that directly relate to each subject's claim to fame.

In other words, Nishikado's portrait is made up of little Space Invaders, Gates' portrait is made up of Windows related iconography, and so on. They're really cool looking, and I think they would make awesome desktop backgrounds!

High-Speed Photos Of Exploding Christmas Ornaments



Alan Sailer is no stranger to shooting things, both with a pellet gun and a camera, but this time around he's making a pretty little mess in his series called The War On Christmas, which features Christmas ornaments frozen in time as they explode in a million shiny little pieces.

These ornaments look so cool being blasted that i'm tempted to take a few off my own tree and blow them to smithereens!

Furry Tauntaun Costume



Apparently nothing is sacred when it comes to Furry culture, because now they've set their sights on Star Wars with this creepy Tauntaun costume.

In other circumstances, this would be a cute mascot costume, but the thought of Furrys getting busy in this bad boy makes me want to ditch my lightsaber for good!

Custom Enterprise Mailbox With Solar Powered Lights



This custom made Enterprise mailbox was built with solar powered lights, so that high school kids can see what they're smashing no matter how dark it is outside. Really, the guy who built it must live in a nice neighborhood, because where I live people would steal this thing in a heartbeat.

Taxi Driver Sweded By Michel Gondry


(YouTube Link)

This sweded version of  Taxi Driver by director Michel Gondry, of Green Hornet and Eternal Sunshine... fame, shows us what the classic film would look like in a French art house style. It's schlocky, surreal and a whole lot cooler than the average sweded film, but I wouldn't expect any less from such a visionary director.

A Christmas Card From Terry Gilliam


(YouTube Link)

Iconic animator, Monty Python alum, and one of the best darn filmmakers ever Terry Gilliam made The Christmas Card back in 1968, as part of an animated short called Storytime.

Full of Gilliam's signature tongue-in-cheek humor and cut paper style animation, it sure puts me in some sort of holiday mood!

What Kids Wanted For Christmas In The 80s


(Image via mattonfire)

Continuing our series of what kids wanted back in the day, we explore the 1980s-a time of excess, badass toys and fashion regrets. While kids in previous decades may have had simpler tastes, by the 80s it was all about the latest toys based on cartoons and TV shows, electronics and video game systems, sometimes all rolled into one.

I couldn't find one site with a comprehensive list of what we all wanted for Christmas in the 80s, so I chose 3 different sites that detail most of the amazing toys from that decade:

14 Photos of Kids Opening Presents in the 80s --this one's cute because you get to see their reaction as they get the toy/present of their dreams.

Looking Back on the Hottest 80s Toys --a list, accompanied with pictures, that briefly describes each toy. This one's mostly aimed at girls.

Top 20 Totally Awesome Toys from the 80s --this one's fun because it features TV commercials for most of the toys on the list.

Enjoy this look back at the fabulous toys of the 1980s, and if you still have some of these treasures in a box somewhere, they may be more valuable than you think!

The Pyro Board Plays Some Hot Tunes


(YouTube Link)

This dangerous, yet beautifully mesmerizing, little device is called the Pyro Board-a table top full of flammable gas that makes flame patterns in a reaction to soundwaves that are directed at the board via loudspeaker.

The video is excruciating to listen to, but the concept is deadly cool. What a delightful way to burn down your house!

Digital Portraits Of Shredded People

This digital photo manipulation series, a collaboration between illustrators/designers Ayaka Ito and Randy Church, turns the subject of each piece into a sketchy, shredded mess.

The paper strip style is created by using 3d modeling software to re-design the models, then the photo details are added to the stripped model, resulting in these uniquely deconstructed portraits. You can see more of these intriguing artworks at the Flavorwire link below.

Harry Potter Vs. Lord Of The Rings



It appears J.K. Rowling was more than a little inspired by Tolkien's classic  fantasy series the Lord Of The Rings when writing her Harry Potter series, and this cute chart aims to prove it by illustrating the similarities between the characters and plot points in both series.

Check out all 4 sections of the chart at the link below, and see for yourself how Harry Potter literally owes his life to J.R.R. Tolkien.

Pro Wrestler Alignment Chart



This handy chart shows you where your favorite professional wrestlers would fit in, if they had to adhere to the alignments set forth by Dungeons & Dragons decades ago. Hulk Hogan is so epic that he can be good and evil simply by changing the color of his attire, and I thinks Vince McMahon has been hitting the muscle juice a little too hard.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Snowman



Boy, The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man sure is cute when he's not stomping around terrorizing a city with his sugary goodness! For those of you with snow, you're lucky because you can make your own geeky snowman, unlike we Southern Californians whose only knowledge of snow comes from the movies and tv shows. We'll just have to settle for sculpting our mashed potatoes into something cool...

Banksy's Latest Work Is A Cardinal Sin



Banksy has literally defaced a statue in his latest work, replacing the face of a replica statue with pixels as a political statement:

Banksy titled the statue “Cardinal Sin”, and designed it as a comment on recent crimes perpetrated by the Catholic church—a response to the child abuse scandal that was covered-up.

In a statement,
Banksy said: “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”

It's a statement, no doubt, but is it worthy of sitting alongside the works of Van Dyck and Rubens?

Unusual Artwork Combines Ordinary People And Disposable Objects



These sculptures are so beautifully crafted, and so finely detailed, that rendering them on aluminum roasting pans and trays is almost a shame, since these flimsy, throwaway objects can so easily be destroyed.

Created by Idan Friedman, these are classical styled portraits with a modern twist, recyclable works of art that hopefully won't end up in a recycling bin.
