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?

Epic Scale HALO Alien Costume



What would you think if you saw this thing walking down the street, eight feet tall and full of sinister snarl? Personally, i'd steer clear unless I had a squad of Spartans by my side, you know, like the ones found in the HALO video game franchise? (Thanks for the nerd edit Bearfoot!)

Hit the link and see the process from mere mortal to becoming this amazing alien creature.

Goofy Anime Adaptation Of Tomb Of Dracula


(YouTube Link)

Fans of the Marvel Comic series Tomb of Dracula were less than enthusiastic about this goofy anime version of their favorite comic when it came out in 1980.

Part 1 in a nutshell: Dracula takes off with Satan's girlfriend in an effort to keep Satan from getting it on. All six parts of this amazingly silly adaptation are on YouTube, watch them and see if it's anything like the silver age comic book series you remember.

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


(Vimeo Link)
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!

Tim Biskup's Polygonal Painting Series



Tim Biskup is no stranger to the strange, so it's fitting that his new series of paintings should feature polygonal heads of some rather strange creatures.

They look like simple 3d models juxtaposed into a Pop Art painting, with a swanky color palette to match. Their unusual, kooky, and their eyes are all over the place! Follow the link and check out this polygonal menagerie for yourself.

The House With A Halloween Light Show

This house better stock up on Halloween candy, because they're guaranteed to have a flood of trick or treaters this year! The brilliant light show changes with the music, and animated pumpkin faces sing along. I wonder what these people are going to do to their house for Christmas?

Care Bears In Real Life



There's something about these Care Bears that's not quite right. Maybe it's the massive fangs, or sharp claws, or the fact that the symbol on the bear's stomach seems to be running. Something tells me these bears don't want to hug and sing songs!

The Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator


(YouTube Link)

The British television show The Gadget Show has created a simulator for Battlefield 3 that will appeal to those who feel the game isn't realistic enough.

Featuring a treadmill floor, projection screens and a motion controlled gun that looks kind of cheesy but doesn't seem to detract from the tester's enjoyment of this unique gaming experience. I don't know about you, but I want one!

This Giant Camera Takes Amazing Photos



When photographer Darren Samuelson set up to take photos of Manhattan with his massive six foot long view camera that weighs over 70 pounds, authorities were alerted and the police had to be convinced that he wasn't pointing a weapon at the city!

This amazing device, which Ansel Adams will likely come back from the dead just to get his hands on, was created to use x-ray film three feet wide, and it takes some truly awesome panoramic photos. Hit the link to see a short video of the big daddy view camera in action!

ps-here's a link to the artist's website that I should have included with the article in the first place. Sorry Darren!

Attack Of The Zombie Wasp Queens



Parasites are raising an army of zombie wasp queens to do their bidding, and it's a good thing that these parasites aren't more ambitious,  because they'd probably be well on their way to taking over the world by now!

The parasites cause common wasps to believe that they are queens, rejecting their normal caste and acting as self serving loners in wasp society:

Infected P. dominulus — better known as common European paper wasps — reject their genetically preordained roles, abandon their hives and embark on a long, macabre journey during which a few live for a time as queens, albeit murderous queens.

Read on about this fascinating example of parasitic mind control at the Wired link below, and pray these little critters don't develop a taste for human blood!

Printing New Homes For Hermit Crabs



Hermit crab homelessness is reaching critical levels, leaving many of these fine clawed fellows without a shell of their own.

Now, thanks to 3d printers and our tireless search for new things to print out, there's a solution: custom printed hermit crab shells! The printed shells will last longer, look cooler and are sure to stir up feelings of jealousy among other hermit crabs. If only we could print houses for homeless humans!

What Cartoon Kids Look Like All Grown Up



If our favorite toon people were allowed to age, which of course they're NOT, we might not like how they turn out. Head to the link and witness a gallery of adult versions of cartoon children that is cute, funny and somewhat disturbing.

This gallery made me think the following:

How did Spongebob grow up to be so creepy? Did Mike from Monsters Inc. take steroids? Are Lilo and Stitch more than just friends?

Will we be able to look at these characters in the same way ever again?

An Office Worker Goes Kong


(YouTube Link)

If Donkey Kong wasn't a giant gorilla, but rather a lowly office worker whose promotion was given to a moustachioed employee named Mario, then the situation would probably play out just as it does in this spoof movie trailer for "Mr. Kong". It's a good thing nobody took his stapler!

This Koala Is Very Thirsty


(YouTube Link)

This poor little guy wandered into a woman's yard in Australia due to it being a particularly hot day, so the woman decided to let him drink from the hose. Apparently koalas don't understand how hoses work, because he gets more water on his arm than he does in his mouth!

Wackiest Wolverine Variant Costume



Here we see Wolverine decked out in his rare Banana variant costume taking a well deserved break after a day of slipping on himself, re-hydrating so he doesn't ripen and turn brown. If you see Wolverine in this outfit try to get a pic but be careful- he's bashful when he sports his Banana Style!

Finally! Prince Of Persia Is On Commodore 64!


(YouTube Link)

It would have been great if the game Prince of Persia had come out for the Commodore 64 in 1989 when I actually owned and used a C64, but sadly we had to endure the greatness of this classic game rubbed in our faces by our friends with Apple II computers.

However, hope is not lost, as the tireless efforts of retro gaming enthusiasts have finally paid off- Prince of Persia has been ported to the C64! So dust off your emulator and take this bad boy for a spin, or check out the video and pretend you played it through oh so many years ago.

Mario's brother Luigi once had his day in the sun, thanks to a Nintendo Gamecube game called Luigi's Mansion, in which Luigi wins a haunted mansion and must rescue Mario from his ghostly captors using a vacuum pack to bust the spooks.
