The Surreal Collage Art Of Irina And Silviu Szekely



These thought provoking collages by Romanian-born artists Irina and Silviu Szekely have a classic Surrealist/Dada style, and perception distorting elements that guide the eyes on a strange trip around the scene.

The images used to make up each collage are simple, yet iconic, which makes each piece powerful enough to be memorable, and they remind me of classic early 20th century works by Giorgio de Chirico and Max Ernst, among others. Take your eyes over to Irina and Silviu's Tumblr page to reveal more of their dreamy works.

Twin Peaks Intro-Parks And Rec Style


(YouTube Link)

Using the motion graphics style and song from the Parks and Recreation tv show seems to have given some of the characters from Twin Peaks a slightly different feel: the Man From Another Place seems less sinister, Sheriff Truman looks more intense, and Donna is way more weepy. Boy, Twin Peaks sure looks like a nice little town!

This Bird Is Wearing One Angry Dress



This Angry Birds dress caused quite a stir when Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbacka's wife wore it to the Finnish Presidential Palace, but why hate on someone representing the game that has taken the world by storm? I mean, the dress is kind of ridiculous looking, and the bird's eye is a bit too close to being mistaken for a nip slip, but anyone who would go to this length for promotion deserves at least a nod of approval.

This House Will Help You Survive The Zombie Apocalypse



This beautiful luxury home in New York's Adirondack State Park has an awesome secret-it's built on top of a former launch control center, and has an additional 2300 square feet of space which lies safely underground.

And now this cabin/bunker can be yours for a mere $1.75 million! Maybe Bruce Wayne is looking for a vacation home, complete with pre-constructed BatCave? You can see more pics of this survivalist dream house at the link below.

Camera Used To Film Star Wars Breaks Auction House Records

The Panavision PSR 35mm camera used to film the original Star Wars movie sold for over $600,000 at auction this week, a sale price which broke the record for highest selling price for a camera ever.

The camera was refurbished back to its original state, was said to be in full working order, and now the new owner can get to work filming Episode 4 all over again! Just kidding, but wouldn't it be hilarious if someone bought the camera then remade such a beloved movie?

Telling A Strangers Story Via Photo Triptych



These strange portrait photographs leave out much of the subject, and yet seem to tell more about each person than a regular photo would. Taken by photographer Adde Adesokan, they're part of his series called "Triptychs of Strangers", and they boil down the subject's personality according to their head, feet and what's in their hands. This is such a fresh approach to street photography that I can't wait to see what Adde comes up with next!

Retro Japanese Spider-Man TV Series



He's known as Supaidaman in Japan, and his live action Japanese tv show from 1978 is way cooler than the cheesy American incarnation. Watch as Spider-Man performs stunts on his motorcycle, battles baddies with duck bills, and tries to stop the sinister plans of one Professor Monster.

Adventure Time's Finn All Grown Up

Who would have guessed that Finn, from the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time, would grow up to be such a badass? Since his arms and legs are like noodles on the show, I'm thinking he went through a gym rat phase as he grew up. Now he looks like he can kick some serious tail!

A Scene From The Best 3D Artist of 2011

As a digital/3d artist it's easy to think that everything you do sucks when compared to stuff like this-a boxing ring scene by Guang Yang who was voted Best 3d Artist of 2011 by the folks at CGSociety.

The superb detail, from facial scarring to the soles of the shoes, and the way the personality of each character is so perfectly captured in their facial expressions and posturing, it's like Guang Yang has not only mastered 3d art but caricatures and life drawing as well. Check out the scene breakdown at the link below.

Surreal Paintings Made With Human Blood



If you've ever thought to yourself "Man, I would love to try my hand at painting, but paint is way too expensive" then guess what-your body is full of a fluid that works just as well but will cost you nothing!

I'm talking about blood, and although it may seem strange to paint with the stuff, it is definitely one of the less disgusting bodily fluids artists have decided to use in their works. Artist Vinicius Quesada knows the value of a pint of vital fluid, and you can see more of his sanguis works at the link below.

Artists Illustrate The Alphabet



What image do you relate to each letter of the alphabet? Various artists were asked the very same question, so they illustrated each letter, and drew up a small scene relating to each letter, like this Beatle themed letter B by Michael Gillette.

Together, they make up the print series called "The Illustrated Alphabet, and you can see more examples  from this great series at the link below.

The New Sexting Code, Or Is It?



Getting crafty to avoid punishment is what most kids do best, but I wonder if this list is really a new texting code used by the young folk, or a code used only by the kids who were caught up in this particular incident? Either way, I'll never look at the number 8 the same way again.

Skyrim As A Saturday Morning Cartoon


(YouTube Link)

Remember when Saturday morning cartoons were full of fantasy adventure? This throwback Skyrim cartoon by Harry Partridge reminds me of watching the Dungeons and Dragons animated series as a youngster, with eyes full of wonder and monster manual in hand.

The Safest Dress You'll Ever Wear



This strangely elegant looking dress was fashioned from 700 condoms by Vietnamese graphic design student Nguyen Minh Tuan, in honor of World AIDS Awareness Day.

These condoms may no longer be useful for preventing STDs or pregnancy, but the fact that they glow in the dark means you'll still be the center of attention even after the lights go out.

This Is Apple Wear From 1986



When the Apple company was just beginning to take the home computing world by storm, they apparently thought it would be a good idea to try their hand at designing clothing as well.

These clothes are the ultimate in computing comfort, and nothing says 1986 like wrapping sweaters around yourself in strange places.

Admiral Ackbar As A Wee Mon Calamari



This is what Admiral Ackbar looked like, as a newly sold alien pet shop slave, way before he was figuring out that things were traps and helping the Rebel Alliance blow up the Death Star. He looked so cute before he grew legs!

Cool Custom TARDIS DVD Bookcase



Model builder msmuse101 and her father threw their skills together and produced this awesome TARDIS dvd shelving unit, which looks so good they should mass produce them and sell them in stores.

The only problem with this TARDIS? It's way smaller inside than it looks on the outside, like it was made in an alternate reality.

Bizarro Mario Bros. Title Screen


(YouTube Link)

Digital artist Jonathan Fletcher has created the player select screen for a bizarro version of the Super Mario Bros. video game that would apparently take place in the Gulf of Mexico.

This has to be the skeeziest incarnation of the Bros. i've ever seen, but nobody ever said plumbing was a glamorous job!

Some Of The Sketchiest Lawyer Billboards I've Ever Seen



As an attorney trying to use a billboard to attract new clients, it's probably best to show the client why they should hire you, not how incompetent, insane or downright creepy you are. These guys and gals aim to show the entire city why their services should be avoided at all cost.

Mall Santa's Rappelling Mishap


(YouTube Link)

This is why a guy in a fat suit and fake beard shouldn't try rappelling from one level of a mall to the next, especially if kids are watching. I hope that mall gives out gift cards that repair shattered childhood dreams!

Uncomfortable Moments With A Russian Version Of TMNT



Apparently when Russia got a hold of our beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they decided to go nuts and cross them over with everything from the Predator to Disney cartoons to Batman.

WTF Russia? I thought the Cold War was over?! Please don't look at these images if you're a die-hard TMNT fan and have a weak heart.

Turn Your Hybrid Car Into High Fashion Art



Lexus claims that their new CT Hybrid is 90% recyclable, and they aim to prove it by having designers create fashion art pieces out of various car parts for "The Lexus Fashion Workshop".

The pieces will be shown in the January 2012 issue of Vogue magazine, and there's no word yet on whether the automotive fashion pieces will then be turned back into a car and driven away after the photo shoot. This line gives new meaning to the phrase "check out her headlights."

Live Action Version Of Catwoman Kicking Some Tail


(YouTube Link)

It was a great idea to make a stunt video that shows what video game combat would look like in real life, and it makes for an action packed minute-and-a-half. But why do the bad guys always stand around, waiting for their turn to face the character instead of just mobbing them en masse?

And why does kicking ass mean characters fly through the air, throwing flying punches and other equally ineffective moves? Oh well, please excuse my criticisms and enjoy this video showing what Catwoman would look like kicking some street thug tail.

This AT-ST Treehouse Is The Coolest



This awesomely geeky AT-ST treehouse is simple, no-frills fun for a child that's more content using their imagination all day rather than being plugged in to a tv or video game console all day. Combine this with some sweet kiddy cosplay sessions and you've got a little piece of Endor in your backyard.

For The Lush That Has Everything-The Booze Backpack



This double barreled contraption can either be loads of fun, say if you fill it with punch or soda for a kid's birthday party, or you can fill the chambers with booze and prepare for your house to become a vomitorium.

This is the kind of stupid invention you hope doesn't fall into the wrong hands, even though I'm pretty sure the only people that are going to buy this thing were born with the wrong hands.
