The Whisper Campaign Against Batman



Apparently men wearing spandex on television wasn't looked upon very kindly during the 1960's, and whisper campaigns plotted to take shows like Batman off the air due to an overwhelming fear of homosexuality, implied or otherwise.

An article from TV Radio Album, circa 1967, suggests that Adam West and Burt Ward might have been more than just friends, which was meant to turn public sentiment against them, then the article proceeds to show the dynamic duo doing karate and surfing like total studs. Read on, faithful viewer!

Tweet Like One Of The Mad Men



File this device under unique and useless, perfect fodder for blog posts! The device is the one and only analog Twitter client, Tweephone, and you must use the rotary dial to enter the letters, one turn at a time just like the old days.

If you have money to burn and love to Tweet then your house needs this decorative device. The rest of us will be more than happy just reading about it, i'm quite sure of that.

Prisoner Makes Final Fantasy Weapons Out Of Matchsticks



A prisoner/geek in Wales had his secret stash of matchstick weapons, including the Buster Sword and Squall's Gunblade from the Final Fantasy video game series, confiscated because:

"...the realism of the swords presented a threat to staff safety, not because they could be used to send the staff back to the Lifestream, but because they look real from afar and could be used to threaten people."

This guy will have a sweet job waiting for him when he gets out-making replica weapons out of balsa wood.

Oddball Japanese Video Game "Pepsiman"



Pepsiman is a true hero, overcoming every urban obstacle thrown at him in order to quench the thirst of citizens in need!

This strange offering from Japan was released in 1999 for the Sony Playstation game console, and it's faceless hero graced an advertising campaign in which Pepsiman saved people from death-by-thirst.

Do you think this game looks like goofy fun or a shameless advertising campaign?

These Are Some Serious Superhero Sculpts



These great sculptures by Calvin Ma casts an oddly frumpish light on spandex clad superfolks. They look emo, bored with life and overweight. These are what action figures must look like in the Bizarro world, with catchphrases like "why bother?" and "i'll get to it later". And, looking at his website, all of Calvin's sculpts look like action figures, even the bronzes!

Pop Surrealism From The Mind Of Mike Mitchell



Mike Mitchell is no stranger to Neatorama, since his paintings of Brobocop and the Parks and Recreation cast in Casablanca, have graced our pages before. So, as soon as I saw the gallery at BuzzFeed I just had to share.

This guy knows how to paint beloved pop culture icons like you've never seen them before, and his images are like eye candy to me-I always crave more, and I just can't get enough!

The Strange Statues In Frogner Park



Sculptors often express themselves in strange and mysterious ways, but most sculptors don't have their works on display in a public park.

Frogner Park in Oslo, Norway has chosen an odd assortment of statues to fill their park, 23 works that center around nude forms in weird poses doing who knows what to each other (nothing pornographic, I assure you) and often looking quite happy doing whatever it is they're doing.

BuzzFeed has a gallery showing off these enormous oddities, take a gander and i'm sure you'll be asking yourself the same thing I did- "Wait, what's going on here?"

Scratching The Surface Of The Urban Environment



Portuguese born street artist Vhils has an original vision of what urban development really means, and he travels the globe exposing what's beneath the surface of city walls .

Using various tools to dig, drill, scrape and otherwise remove sections of masonry, he reveals the images hidden behind the smooth walls, and the results are nothing less than spectacular. He should call his style of art urban erosion sculpture!

"This excavation, often a process of violent removal, stands in sharp contrast to the delicate portraits discovered hidden underneath."

Can you dig it?

Surreal Mascot Masks



These kooky mascot masks are the brainchild of Ian Langohr, who used skills learned while working for a mascot production company to channel his inner strange. Maybe these masks will inspire the wildest bunch of college mascots ever-California Nest Mouths anyone?

Tintin Fights Back

[Image deleted per DMCA request from Moulinsart SA]


I guess size doesn't matter when it comes to messing with Tintin. Illustrator Mike Holmes created this piece for an exhibit called Toronto Draws Tintin, running from November 2-27 at the Beguling. These guys must have been talking trash about Tintin's mother!

Painting With Light Photographs



Brian Hart creates these really cool light painting photographs by using exposure times up to 20 minutes long. Now that's what I call bending light! These images are so detailed that I can't help but wonder what sort of reference he uses while the shutter is open.

Master Splinter, What Happened To The Ninja Turtles?



Was a spell cast upon the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which turned them into trees, or is this tree just a really big fan of the series? This tree with a face would have fit in quite well on the set of the Dark Crystal.

Zombie Iron Man Is Falling Apart



Zombie Iron Man showed up at the Paris Zombie Walk 2011 looking like a billion bucks. I'm surprised he wasn't at Occupy Wall Street supporting the 1% by eating protestor's brains! Wouldn't it be hilarious if this caught on as a Halloween costume?

Awful Retro Halloween Costumes



I remember seeing stacks of these awful things on the shelves when I was a youngster, and hearing parents say things like "look for the ones that say non-flammable" and "well, at least you can use the mask", as their kids stifled tears over their terribly disappointing selection of flimsy plastic costumes.

Browse through this gallery of awfulness and see just how good kids have it these days when it comes to Halloween costumes.

Awesome Hand Drawn Animation Video

This animated music video by Kijek/Adamski is really cool to watch, even if it makes you feel a bit seasick at times. The song "Pirate's Life" by We Cut Corners is pretty sweet too, but what's even cooler about this video is that the entire thing was hand drawn on paper with markers!
