Bloody Good Sci-Fi Animated Short- Malaise

(Video Link)

Space is the place where nobody can hear you scream, the final frontier full of strange new worlds, alien lifeforms and lots of stars, and it’s also the setting for this retro sci-fi themed short Malaise.

Malaise is a short that feels like a segment from a feature length film-it's punchy, bloody and very stylish, with CGI characters and backgrounds that have the look of stop motion animation. It was created by Daniel Beaulieu from the Vancouver Film School, made as a final project for a 3D animation class, and from the look of this short Daniel has a bright future ahead of him.

Ashley Eckstine To Unveil Geek Couture Line At Comic-Con 2014

Actress, fashion designer and Sith seductress Ashley Eckstein is planning to debut a “Geek Couture” line, from her fashion label Her Universe, at Comic-Con 2014, with a little help from the geek royalty at Nerdist

From the look of her preliminary drawings those who can afford to shell out hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars for a TARDIS themed outfit, or a pair of shorts and a top inspired by Bumblebee from the Transformers are going to be mighty excited to get their hands on one of her fancy geek getups.

But even if you can't afford to buy a piece from the collection you can still submit your own design, and thirty lucky winners will have their designs entered into the show, with two grand prize winners selected to co-design new clothing for Her Universe.

Hands Are Symbols Of Desires And Fears

Appendages are growing out of all sorts of strange places in this creep-tastic series of digitally manipulated photos by Babak Hosseiny and Jeffrey Vanhoute entitled “O les mains”.

There are fingers where hair should be, angry arms ordering a hand to pull back on some poor guy’s face by his eyelids, and all sorts of appendage shaped protrusions in all kinds of wrong places.

Hosseiny was influenced by a Wittgenstein book he'd read about hands being the symbols of a person’s fears and desires, and together with Belgian photographer Jeffrey Vanhoute he brought this idea to light in a disturbingly surreal manner.

The images in the series were created using traditional studio photos of the subjects, which were then digitally composited together, creating the desired, and decidedly creepy, effect.

Tech Support Gandalf Is Here To Help

When you call tech support with a computer problem you usually reach someone who is really far away, but you probably had no idea that some of those calls were being routed to Middle Earth!

Tech Support Gandalf is the meme flavor of the year month week, and he’s full of all kinds of computer wisdom- You should always let the installation wizard finish doing its thing, for the installation wizard completes precisely when he means to, and when in doubt Google it.

We’ve included a blank version, so you can try your hand at creating a Tech Support Gandalf image of your own.

The Illuminati Pyramid Is Everywhere

The pyramid, the All-Seeing Eye, the pentagram- these are the symbols utilized by the Illuminati, that shadowy organization controlling the world with their secrecy and power of lots of money.

Conspiracy enthusiasts know that when you start looking for the Illuminati you’ll discover to your horror that they are everywhere, putting their symbols into everything so we’re constantly reminded that they are in power.

From puppy mouths to Jay-Z’s nose to seemingly random pixel arrays, you can find the Illuminati’s power pyramid everywhere and in everything, but if you’re still not convinced take a look at these 4chan Illuminati images posted to Imgur by bravesaint.

Warning- once you start seeing the Illuminati everywhere you won’t be able to stop seeing the Illuminati everywhere, because they are everywhere!

Hilarious Japanese Translations Of Hollywood Movie Titles

For some reason movie titles don’t survive the trip across the ocean unscathed, and when international audiences go see a movie they may not be totally sure what they’re going to see because the title has been so badly butchered.

A website called Rocketnews24 has taken it upon themselves to reveal this title butchery by translating Japanese versions of Hollywood movie titles back into English, showing us how easy it is for Being John Malovich to become Malcovich’s Hole, Despicable Me de-evolves into Mysterious Thief Gru’s Moon Theft, and a third Final Destination becomes a ride on a Final Deadcoaster.

Adorable Bulldog Puppy Rolling Down A Hill

(Video Link)

This wrinkly little English bulldog is named Sophie, and she has figured out that the fastest way to get down a hill without falling on your face is to roll to the bottom.

Apparently rolling is a common English bulldog behavior, so it's not surprising that this little girl figured it out at such an early age, and once she gets going it looks like she's having fun and doesn't want to stop!

Bulldogs are so cute when they're pups, with those faces all wrinkly and those tiny legs attached to that signature sausage body, but it seems the only way to make them cuter is to dress them up in a little hoodie.

Rare Photos From The Rothschild Illuminati Ball In 1972

The Rothschilds are one of the wealthiest families in the world, and they were known for throwing wicked costume parties back in the day, with only the most famous and distinguished guests in attendance.

However, very few photos have surfaced from their decadent soirees, and those photos which have been released reveal how the one percent get their party on.

In 1972 Baron Guy De Rothschild and his wife Marie-Helene hosted a Surreal Face themed party at the Chateau de Ferrieres, where their famous guests, including Salvador Dali and Audrey Hepburn, were asked to wear "black tie, long dresses and surrealists heads".

The guests didn't disappoint, arriving with wildly decorated heads and austere garb, but it seems all the crazy facepaint and liquor in the world couldn’t liven up such a stiff crowd!

B-Roll Footage From The Muppets Most Wanted

(Video Link)

The Muppets Most Wanted is about to hit theaters, treating legions of puppet loving people to a new big screen adventure starring their favorite fleece covered friends.

Filming an epic movie like The Muppets Most Wanted means lots of B-roll footage and scenes removed from the final edit of the film, and for fans of the filmmaking process these unused scenes give us insight into the entire process, and shows how a scene starring a puppet actually comes together.

But since this is actual B-roll footage from the film there are all kinds of spoilers, so don’t watch if you’re worried about spoilers ruining your Muppet movie viewing experience, just come back and watch the clips after you've seen the film!

Animated Short Set In Post-Apocalyptic Brooklyn - Fathoms

(Video Link)

Animator Joe Russ drew inspiration for his epic length CGI short Fathoms from his father’s untimely death due to cancer when Joe was only seventeen, he drew the funds to complete the film from a successful Kickstarter campaign, and he drew, and animated, and created over a six year period, working mostly on nights and weekends, until he'd finished this heartfelt project.

Fathoms is a touching, relatable and beautifully melancholic short film about “Sam, Evan, and Hippo the cat as they struggle to survive and find meaning in a flooded world haunted by remnants of the past”, and with a total runtime of just under twenty minutes you're going to have to set some time aside to watch this one, but believe me-it's worth it.

Steve McCurry's Photographic Vision Of Ethiopia

Photographer Steve McCurry has an epic vision which he has been happily sharing with the world for over 30 years, and his knack for revealing the heart and soul of his subjects makes him the perfect person to call when you need help promoting a humanistic cause.

This photo journey took Steve to Ethiopia, more specifically to the remote Omo Valley region, where he was invited to capture the plight of the Omo children and help spread the word about a great cause.

The Omo Child charity takes care of children who are considered mingi (cursed) by their tribe and either sent to die in the desert or ritualistically murdered.

These unwanted mingi children are given a home and an education thanks to the efforts of Lale Lubuko and photographer John Rowe, founders of Omo Child, and with Steve McCurry’s intimate and illustrative photo series showing the world who their donations are benefitting the Omo children will hopefully receive the funding help they so desperately need.

This Dog Really Knows How To Get Comfy

It's tough to be a dog, especially if your owners have kids, and sometimes a dog just wants to kick back and relax with some canine “me” time.

This dog may not be able to iron out all the wrinkles in his life, or his face, but at least he’s got time to kick back on the couch and sip on some Irish coffee before heading back to the daily grind of bone chewing, digging holes in the backyard and chasing the neighborhood cats off the fence. A dog’s work is never done…

Corporate Lifestyle Simulator Is A Video Game, Not A Corporate Lifestyle Simulator

(Video Link)

Working a desk job can make some folks go absolutely batty, or it can turn you into a mindless zombie who shuffles through the day watching the clock until quitting time. But for a few sturdy individuals the office worker’s life can transform you from a cubicle jockey to a real fireaxe wielding hero.

The office is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse in a quirky little game called Corporate Lifestyle Simulator, which was created by game designer Big Nic, and you must battle your way through zombified office workers, the bosses and what looks like a giant desk monster if you're ever going to get around to taking your lunch break.

How It's Unmade - Oreo Cookie Edition

(Video Link)

People love Oreo cookies, and they’re the best-selling cookie in the United States. So what makes them so adorable, so delicious and the go-to choice for cookie lovers nationwide?

Well, you won’t find any of those answers in this video entitled “How It’s Unmade- Oreo Cookies” by Jerk Circle, but you will discover how powerful wizards aid in the deconstruction of Oreo knockoffs, in huge factories built for the sole purpose of stripping those delicious discs of goodness down to their core ingredients.

It’s definitely not an episode of “How It’s Made” played in reverse with a new narration track, and the wizard element alone should prove it’s a true story!

Dog Tells Couple It's Time To Go By Honking The Car Horn

(Video Link)

Graham and Fiona Haddow decided to leave their boxer Fern in the car for about twenty minutes while they visited an art gallery, but Fern wasn't having it.

He started honking the car horn, telling them it was time to go, and didn't stop for a full fifteen minutes until they came out!

Their first mistake- leaving the dog in the car in the first place, which is just plain wrong, especially if you're doing something totally unessential like visiting an art gallery.

They're lucky Fern didn't deposit a big, steaming pile of disapproval on the driver's seat!

Scientific Research Shows The Five Second Rule Is True

(Image Via Shutterstock)

The five second rule is one of those schoolyard myths that seems to make no sense as you learn more about germs and bacteria, but as it turns out the playground talk was true- if you pick food up off the ground within five seconds it’s (relatively) safe to eat.

Students from Aston University in Birmingham, England, led by microbiology professor Anthony Hilton, conducted a study that focused on how E. Coli and Staphylococcus aureus are transferred to many different foods from many different floor types.

They found that "time is a significant factor in the transfer of bacteria from a floor surface to a piece of food", meaning it often takes longer than five seconds for the bacteria to adhere to the food.

A note by Professor Hilton:

Consuming food dropped on the floor still carries an infection risk as it very much depends on which bacteria are present on the floor at the time; however the findings of this study will bring some light relief to those who have been employing the five-second rule for years, despite a general consensus that it is purely a myth.

Animated Cartoon Dissections By T- Wei

The colorful illustrations and GIFs created by T-Wei have a sense of motion built in to each character design, like a cartoon dissection in progress with lots of squiggly bits, a colorful peek underneath the skin that really comes to life in Tea’s body splitting GIFs.

Interactive viewing reveals the joy of cartoon surgery, as a bunch of fairly square folks are opened up to reveal the wriggling masses that lie beneath their skin.

They say the only way to truly understand someone is to know what lies beneath the surface, so those who live in T-Wei's mind are total squares with a lot of guts.

Minimalist Animated Intro For Game Of Thrones

(Video Link)

The hit show Game of Thrones is as popular, if not more popular, than George R.R. Martin’s book series that inspired the show, and fans are gearing up for another dose of grim fantasy in the upcoming fourth season.

But if you can't remember where all the characters are in the world of Westeros and Essos you may want to consult this minimalist intro that’s also a handy guide to every character’s current location, which was created by student animators Mathilde Loubes, Jory Bertrand and Alison Dulou from Atelier de Sevre in Paris, France.

The overall design scheme is simple yet elegant, and the only problem with this intro is they've identified everyone by their real names so unless you know the actor that plays every character by name you may still be a bit lost.

Wolf + Unicorn - An Unlikely Relationship Told Through Animated GIFs

Wolf and unicorn have a very touchy relationship, it’s always bite and get bit when they’re together, and they’re both prone to random acts of violence.

They’re codependent in all the right ways, and even though their relationship teaches us something about predator and prey getting along in the wild it's also full of macabre twists and turns, a colorfully chaotic relationship unfolding on Andrew Benson's GIF Tumbler Wolf + Unicorn.

Wolf + Unicorn is more than just pretty little polygonal pictures- there's a story building that will rival the greatest love stories ever told, and I can't help but think of Andrew's series as a sign of GIF webcomics to come.

The DIY Weapons Of The Ukranian Revolution

The riots in Kiev, Ukraine, which subsequently turned into a full blown revolution, weren't started by soldiers or police officers, they were started by average people willing to fight for their rights against a corrupt government.

DIY weaponry is the norm among the freedom fighting citizen soldiers that form the front lines, and these weapons look like something straight out of a post apocalyptic movie.

Photographer Tom Jamieson has chosen to document the DIY weapons of the Ukranian Revolution in a totally artsy way, taking them out of the fray and simply showcasing the brutal ingenuity and crude beauty of each weapon.

And even though you can't see the wielders in these photos you can somehow get a sense about them simply by looking at their choice of arms.

Kevin Bacon Explains The 80s To Millennials

It’s hard to believe by looking at him, but Kevin Bacon has been acting in Hollywood since 1978, so if he can’t explain the importance of 80s Awareness to Millennials then nobody can.

Let two time Saturn award nominee Kevin Bacon explain to the young folks born after 1985 how the danger of getting nuked by the Russians while skateboarding to the store made life in the 80s one wild ride.

It's a good thing we had those comfy parachute pants on when the Russians invaded...oh wait, that's the plot of Red Dawn. My bad.

Man Reveals Crack Epidemic At Magic: The Gathering Tournaments

There are many things you’d expect to find at a Magic: The Gathering tournament- powerful custom built decks, rule mongering über nerds, dice, rulebooks and the occasional playmat. But there’s one thing that’s at every Magic tournament from here to Timbuktu, yet never gets taken into account by attendees, and that one thing is the mysterious butt crack.

Every gamer has one, not all of them on display, but attendee and redditor OB1FBM decided to pose with the visible cracks for a photo series that exposes an epidemic in the Magic: The Gathering community.

He calls his photo series Grand Prix Richmond Crackstyle, and hopefully OB1FBM's bravery will send a strong message to future players of trading card games- Crack is Whack!
