The Fifth Element - 8-Bit Cinema Edition

(Video Link)

Cult classic sci-fi flick The Fifth Element is beloved by fans for its original sense of humor, vibrant characters, and truly unique twist on the sci-fi genre, but when TFE gets an 8-bit makeover the whole thing becomes even more far out!

Cinefix's conversion of The Fifth Element into a pixel-tastic, video game inspired animated short may not replace the original movie in the hearts of fans, but once again they have done a great job of making me long for an old school style video game that will never come out. *sigh*

A Time-Lapse Stop Motion Trip Around The City Of Light

(Video Link)

The City of Light is full of so much beauty that it has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, but this time lapse stop motion short by Mayeul Akpovi called Paris In Motion Part 4 does a great job of showing off the finer points of Parisian beauty.

Mayeul compiled thousands of still photographs to create a visually compelling portrait of Paris, taking the viewer on a virtual tour that's a bit jerky, a bit brief, but way cheaper than heading there in person! And if you like what you see make sure you check out parts one two and three in the series.

Incredible Animation Generated By Code That Fits On A Floppy Disk

(Video Link)

As video game quality goes up so does the size of the assorted files needed to play the game, and video games have gone from a miniscule hundreds of kilobytes of data to file packages too big to fit one one Blu-ray disc. However, there is one thing working behind the scenes to help keep those file sizes manageable- the algorithm.

Revision is a programming demoparty held in Saarbrücken, Germany each year that plays host to digital artists and programmers who want to show off their skills, and the standout at this year's party is this 64k intro called The Timeless.

It was created by a demoscene group called Mercury, who used procedural generation to generate the music and graphics in real time, and despite the fact that it weighs in at less than 64 kilobytes of data The Timeless sports impressively robust sound and visuals.

Meet Street Art Pioneer Dan Witz

(Video Link)

The name Dan Witz may be unknown to those who think street art begins and ends with Banksy and Shepard Fairey, but his outlaw artworks paved the way for the fame enjoyed by many today, fame which has eluded Dan because he's in it for the art, not the notariety.

Dan started his street art career in the late 70s with little painted birds and cleverly rendered slogans. He then moved on to creating unique installations that look like people stuck behind grating, and nowadays he's part of the gallery scene, creating amazingly detailed paintings of mosh pits.

Animal New York created this brief yet highly informative mini-doc about Dan Witz, which is a must see for street art fans and those who wonder how it all began.

Star Wars - Bad Foley Edition

(Video Link)

Star Wars is one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of all time, and both the special effects and the movie soundtracks still hold up decades later.

A big part of the original trilogy’s charm is the fun foley sound effects created specifically for the films- they're so iconic you can tell a lightsaber from a blaster rifle from a TIE fighter just by hearing the sound, but what would Star Wars be without those iconic foley sound effects?

YouTube user Hudson Hongo brings us Star Wars: Bad Foley Edition in an effort to prove just how important sound effects are to those wars in the stars.

The Hive-Inn - Stacked Shipping Container Housing

It may seem like a strange idea to use stacks of shipping containers as hotel rooms or temporary housing, but this isn’t an idea conceived for the luxury set.

Hong Kong based OVA Studio came up with the idea of using modular containers as a quick and easy way to provide shelter for people displaced by natural disasters, for use as mobile hospital units, offices, basically whenever a situation arises where a lot of people need some temporary housing.

The recycled shipping containers are slotted together to create a multi-level structure OVA calls the Hive-Inn, which can grow or decrease in size as needed and is ready at a moment's notice.

This project reminds me of the trailer park "stacks" which are home to the main character in the Ernest Cline novel Ready Player One.

Japan's Demented Real Life 'Truman Show'

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

There was a show which aired in Japan from 1998 to 2002 that made the Truman Show look like Romper Room, and attempted to answer the question- can one live only on winning prizes?

The show was called Susunu! Denpa Shonen, and it starred a Japanese comedian named Nasubi who "won" the privilege of being trapped in a studio apartment with no clothes and no supplies for a year and a half, forced to win a million dollars worth of prizes from magazines and other media if he ever wanted to get back to his normal life.

Unbeknownst to the star of the show his every move, 24 hours a day, was broadcast to a Japanese audience who couldn’t get enough of this voyeuristic experiment in delicate torture TV.

Read more about this totally bizarre Japanese TV show over at Dangerous Minds.

Amazing Treasure Planet Cosplay Of Captain Amelia

We have shared many fine examples of cartoon character cosplay over the years, but Ryoko Demon’s portrayal of Captain Amelia from the Disney animated feature Treasure Planet really takes the cake!

Ryoko Demon brings the fearless character to life like never before, with seamless makeup that makes her look like a real purrty alien cat lady and an equally high quality wardrobe just like what the character wore in the animated feature, complete with far out laser rifle.

Treasure Planet didn’t receive the attention or critical acclaim normally associated with Disney movies, but cosplayers like Ryoko Demon may inspire people to look into this underrated Disney flick.

Comedians Gather For A Space Jam Table Read

(Video Link)

Unless you're a diehard fan of both basketball and Bugs Bunny chances are Space Jam didn’t make its way onto your top ten movie list.

However, those who grew up in the 90s consider this composited animated feature to be a fun bit of nostalgia from their childhood, and the rest of us are left wondering why the heck they made such a ridiculous movie.

It turns out the reason they made Space Jam is so a bunch of hilarious comedians like Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, and Seth Green could resurrect the film’s script nearly twenty years later for a hilarious table read! Now that’s a Space Jam I can get behind!

Harry Potter Reimagined As A 1980s Cyberpunk Anime

(Video Link)

Kids who grew up in the 80s didn’t have Harry Potter in their lives, but frankly they didn’t need the shrimpy spell flinger hanging around when they had Transformers, Dungeons & Dragons and He-Man to keep their imaginations occupied.

However, now that the lil scarhead has made such a big splash in the world of geekdom he’s being integrated into all kinds of silly projects, like this animated short which reimagines Harry Potter as a 1980s Anime series.

Created by Nacho Punch, Harry Potter Cyber Punk Adventure: The 1980's Anime is heavy on the Akira influence and light on the teen angst, and would have looked right at home with the Saturday Morning cartoons lineup.

Artist Paints Her Face To Look Like Classic Album Covers

Artist and music lover Natalie Sharp discovered the Unknown Pleasures of painting her face to look like various album covers, and now she must Remain In The Light lest she be mistaken for a Veckatimest and elicit some Screamadeica from those who catch sight of her in public.

Natalie came up with this fun face painting concept as a way to pay homage to Record Store Day, which took place on April 19th, and she cites the albums painted on her face as inspirational to her art.

Here’s what Natalie had to say about this unique project:

I stupidly thought I could knock these out in a day. Three days later with a bleeding face and being accused of racism after posting my progress on Facebook, I had to stop. These are not my top eight albums, I don’t believe in that crap, but they are eight very inspiring and spectacular albums that I keep returning to. Each face took between 3 – 6 hours to paint. I cried after finishing grizzly bear, I thought it had broken me. I don’t use any stencils its all freehand.

Record Store Day, here is my gift to you.

An Energy Efficient Glow-In-The-Dark Highway

(Video Link)

Energy efficiency is a big part of “going green”, and delivering electricity to a long, lonely stretch of highway is not only a daunting dask- it’s simply inefficient.

With the advancement of solar power we may find better ways to bring electricity to rural areas, but a remote highway generally has little use for light, and typically needs to be lit up on the road itself more than the shoulders.

That’s what makes this highway in Oss, Netherlands so unique- the road markings glow-in-the-dark.

Studio Roosegaarde spent two years developing the idea of integrating photo-luminescent powder into the road paint, and their glowing highway innovation makes a drive in the dark seem like a trip into the world of Tron.

Crocheted Monster Benches At San Francisco's Ferry Building

(Image Via Knithacker)

(Image Via Lorna Watt)

Yarnbombers add color and crocheted warmth to gray and sooty cityscapes, and their creations are the warmest and fuzziest works in the street art scene.

Yarn enthusiasts Jill and Lorna Watt brought a bit of monstrous fun to San Francisco’s Embarcadero by turning two benches outside the Ferry Building into colorful yarnbombed monsters.

These monster benches weren’t created solely for aesthetic value or to further yarnbombing as a valid art form- the yarn art installation was created for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s Full Frame which will focus on these innovative yarn artists who also happen to be sisters.

A Bed And Breakfast Shaped Like A Beagle

Waking up with some hair of the dog that bit you last night means something completely different when you’ve just spent the night in a B&B shaped like a beagle.

This charming canine shaped cabin is called the Dog Bark Park Inn, it’s located in scenic Cottonwood, Idaho and it was built by chainsaw carvers Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin.

Each room is decorated with works by Sullivan and Conklin, which are all shaped like dogs of course, and the modest bed and breakfast has room to host four guests in the main beagle building called Sweet Willy.

There’s one major rule at the Dog Bark Park Inn- guests must love dogs, or else they’re barking up the wrong tree!

These Guys Make Epic Pen Spinning Look Easy

(Video Link)

What was once something kids did while sitting around bored in class has now become a thing kids do while bored in class, while hanging out with friends, and also to impress people online.

Whether you call it twiddling, spinning or twirling a pen the two smug young men in this video are really good at making writing instruments fly around their fingers, flip across their legs and generally flit around like they have a mind of their own.

Ian Jenson and PPM are bringing epic pen spinning to the masses, but no matter how hard they try it will never be as cool as being part of the color guard!
