WETA Workshop Sculptor Shows Off Incredible Prototype For "Labyrinth" Board Game

Artists, crafters and writers who become obsessed with board games often wonder if they can make their own game, and I've heard some great ideas from my many gamer friends over the years.

But theory and execution are two very different matters, and creating miniatures, art for the game and the perfect playing surface is really hard- unless you're a WETA Workshop artist like Johnny Fraser-Allen.

Johnny is a lifelong Jim Henson fan and sculptor who is working on a 3D board game based on Labyrinth, which he was happy to share with Adam Savage on this episode of Tested.

Massive Final Fantasy VII Snow Sculpture From The Sapporo Snow Festival

This year the skilled snow sculptors at the Sapporo Snow Festival chose to go old school by creating a massive homage to the classic SquareENIX RPG Final Fantasy VII.

The fifty-foot-tall diorama featured an incredibly detailed depiction of Cloud Strife and Sephiroth squaring off, and by some snowy miracle the sculpture stayed in place and didn't turn into an AVALANCHE.

Pop Culture's Best In Show For Every Breed

I can't watch the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show without wondering about dog breeds, or more specifically why breeds look the way they do.

That's because dogs are often defined by the look of their breed, and we assume certain things about their temperament and even give them a basic personality profile based on their breed.

But dog breeds get to break free of these generalities when they're featured in pop culture, and breeds we assume are weak, like the Maltese or the Pomeranian, are made mighty by the gods of geekdom.

I never want to go near a Pomeranian again after seeing this cute little guy in Blade: Trinity!

Pop culture franchises also do a really good job of turning killer dog breeds into total lovers, which is a much more realistic transition. Remember that vicious pit bull Backup in Veronica Mars?

Yeah, he was a real brute, just like that vicious German Shepherd Samantha from I Am Legend or that angry and violent Bullmastiff Butkus from Rocky.

Of course, some breeds have a hard time burying the bad rep they gain from starring in movies and TV shows, like poor Cujo the Saint Bernard who became the stuff of nightmares for all 80s kids.

Hauntingly Beautiful Driftwood Sculptures By Nagato Iwasaki

Pieces of driftwood are like nature's nomads, traveling far from their roots and going where the streams and rivers take them like no trees ever could.

These well traveled scraps of wood are shaped by their journey, twisted and gnarled until they become earthen works of art shaped by the hands of Mother Nature.

Sadly, most driftwood is used to build fires or as garden fill when collected, but Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki has found a better use for those beautiful bits of wood- he uses them as a sculptural medium.

Nagato's humanoid figures are naturally gorgeous, and realistic enough to give you a hauntingly eerie feeling of familiarity when you gaze at their faceless forms, like someone you used to know but let slip away long ago.

It's All In The Wrists

There are many little details of Mario's character design that seem like they were included just to give him the look of a lead character, and we're probably better off leaving our questions about his details at that.

Because, as this Fake Webcomic reveals, the less we know about what lies under Mario's clothes the better!

Glow-In-The-Dark Street Art Murals Come Alive At Night

Street art adds a vibrant, and sometimes interactive, element to an otherwise grey concrete city, and this artistic splash of color and life is enjoyed by all who lay eyes on the piece.

But imagine the viewer's surprise when they discover that piece on the wall transforms at night when a secret glow-in-the-dark element is revealed.

Barcelona-based Reskate studio paints mysterious street art pieces on walls all over Europe, and people who walk by the seemingly simple artwork during the day are treated to a neat surprise after dark.

The painstaking process requires the artists from Reskate Studio to add the photoluminescent paint details to the simple silhouette during the day, forcing them to wait until after dark to see how it all turned out.

Tom Cruise Falling Into Other Movies

Tom Cruise's career has been falling very, very slowly since the 80s, with a few updrafts here and there during his otherwise perpetual descent from superstardom.

But what's causing this fall? A string of bad roles? His connection to Scientology? That one time he went crazy and jumped on Oprah's couch?

Maybe Tom should just embrace the fall and work a "falling Tom Cruise" cameo into every movie that comes out!

KISS Is Now Selling Air Guitar Strings

KISS, or more specifically Gene Simmons on behalf of KISS, has been working hard to create as many types of KISS themed merchandise as possible, cashing in on everything from condoms to Kaskets.

But one of their latest releases seems too dumb to be true- KISS air guitar strings. It's a bag of air with a KISS header card on top, created for all those KISS air guitarists out there who keep breaking their strings.

If you think this $3.99 bag of air is taking KISS merchandising too far you're not alone, because Gene's son Nick seems to think this is a ridiculous idea too:

Photo Series Featuring Drag Performers Before And After Makeup

Drag performers aren't just men or women dressed up to look like the opposite sex- they're actors who create (often zany) characters and try to perfectly embody the role in every way.

That's why many drag performers are unrecognizable without their wigs or their makeup, because the people behind the flamboyant personas are often more reserved than their stage show would suggest.

Australian photographer Aaron Walker photographs drag performers before and after their dramatic transformation in his aptly titled series "Dragformation":

It’s the transformation process that is interesting to me, rather than the final look. It’s the amount of time and the attention to detail, from walking off the street and into the dressing room, to walking on stage. That’s a three-hour period of hair and makeup. …It’s really interesting. With most of the drag artists that sit for me, their before shots are slightly awkward—it’s a slightly uncomfortable process for them. But once they’ve transformed into their drag persona, they’re very confident and know exactly how to model for the camera.

Meet The Monkey Mom Of Illinois

For some reason animal lovers still think having a monkey as a pet is a novel idea, but nine times out of ten the shit hits the fan soon after they bring their pet monkey home and they realize they've made a terrible mistake.

And once those people have learned their lesson a poor little monkey is left without a home- unless they're lucky enough to land in the arms of Airocolina 'Pinky' Janota, aka the Monkey Mom.

Airocolina runs a primate sanctuary in Beecher, Illinois, where she currently serves as 'alpha monkey mom' for six orphans- two Marmosets, one Bonnet Macaque and three Rhesus Macaques.

All of the monkeys Pinky takes in at the Settlers Pond Shelter were abandoned by their owners in the United States, but in Pinky's care they're living the high life, with dapper duds to wear and all the finger food they can eat.

Brilliant Fan Art Inspired By Rogue One

(Art by Derek Laufman)

Rogue One has captured the hearts of old school Star Wars fans and new fans alike because it's just that awesome, and when artists are inspired by a movie they show their love with illustrative lines.

(Art by Shane Molina)

Some were happy about the return of the Sith we love to hate, who hasn't changed a bit since the 80s, while other artists got a kick out of that sassy reprogrammed Imperial droid K-2SO:

(Art by SAMiJEN)

But after all the arguments are said and done the best thing about Rogue One is the fact that it gave us that good old fashioned Star Wars movie feeling again!

Historic Best In Show Winners From Westminsters Past

Each year a carefully selected pack of canine contestants strut their stuff for the judges at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, where they represent their breed and try to prove they're the Best In Show.

This year the competition will be even hairier, since three new breeds have entered the battle- the Pumi, the American hairless terrier and the Sloughi, all very interesting dogs indeed.

But enough about the now, let's look back at Westminsters past with Miss C's article 12 Historic Westminster Best In Show Winners and see who won about 100 years ago.

His name is Haymarket Flawless, and he won Best In Show in 1918. Hay was both the first Bull Terrier and the first Canadian dog to win, and he definitely could have been the Spuds McKenzie of his day.

And speaking of dogs with star power, get a load of 1957's winner- Shirkhan Of Grandeur.

Shirkhan was the first Afghan hound to win Westminster, and he was so gorgeous and elegant looking TIME Magazine felt compelled to bow down:

The others walked or trotted, ran or cantered like dogs. Shirkhan moved like a king."

But you don't have to be doggy royalty to win Westminster, just ask Tickle Em Jock.

Scrappy little Tickle Em Jock was purchased from a London butcher for $15, and he became the first Scottish terrier to win Best In Show in 1911.

However, Jock obviously had a hard time putting his rough and tumble past behind him- because he bit a judge at another show later that year after winning Best in Breed. Tickle 'em indeed!

Artist Creates LEGO Fissures By Tearing Holes In The Walls

If you're going to tear a hole in the wall of a home to use as the base for an art project then you'd better be sure that art project is simply smashing to look at and worth all the destruction.

So when Miami-based club owner Dave Grutman asked artist Dante Dentoni to create a bricking awesome LEGO sculpture in his home Dante tore up the walls without hesitation- because he had a grand plan in mind.

It turns out tearing holes in walls then filling those holes with LEGOs is one of Dante's artistic fortes, only this time he has outdone himself by taking his LEGO fissure across two walls and the ceiling.

Horrifying Fast Food "Hacks" Tested

Fast food chains serve up familiar food that rarely changes much, and when people get bored of eating the same old menu items they hack the menu- and share their creations on the internet.

This is exactly what the internet community wants and needs, so they encourage people to play Dr. Foodenstein and create new monster hacks- and the world of fast food is a scarier place because of it.

Sickening creations like the Saucy Buns from McDonald's (practically every sauce available on a bun) and the Protein Shake from Dunkin Donuts (bacon, eggs, coffee, sausage and cheese blended into a smoothie) are hacks gone wrong.

So who could possibly bring themselves to devour these monstrosities?

Brave Ben Wyman from Cracked put his stomach on the line for the sake of research, and he was so gung-ho about his terror-filled taste testing he actually created his own monster meal- the Tac-Urr-Acho-Dilla Grande Supreme.

This horrifying Taco Bell hybrid is a taco, nachos and a burrito stuffed inside a quesadilla, and Ben had to fight to bring it to life:

The staff were upset that I had predicted their next meal, and were insistent that they couldn't stuff a taco, nachos, and burrito into a quesadilla, citing small-minded concerns like "the tortilla isn't large enough" and "it would be an affront to the very concept of civilization." But I wasn't about to let them stand in the way of progress, and eventually they relented.

Disney's Biggest Flops And Their Most Underrated Movies

Disney used to be the undisputed masters of the animated feature, and they made some mighty fine live action films too, so when Disney movies started to flop in the theater people noticed.

Nowadays Disney's track record at the box office (not including Pixar or Marvel movies) is about fifty-fifty, which is pretty low compared to their classic days.

Movies like Mr. Magoo, Home On The Range and The Country Bears seemed destined for failure, but John Carter's failure was a surprise.

The Black Cauldron and Treasure Planet were even bigger surprises, because they both bombed hard despite being pretty great films that later got lots of love as cult classics.

(YouTube Link)

That's why The Black Cauldron and Treasure Planet are also on WatchMojo's list of underrated animated Disney films, because they were sadly overlooked just like The Great Mouse Detective and Brother Bear.

Why You Should Never Play Hide-And-Seek With A Cat

(Image Link)

Most dogs don't get the hiding part of hide and seek, although they are really good at seeking thanks to their keen senses, but if cats want to hide and stay hidden, even in plain sight, they have the power to do so.

(Image Link)

Cats have mastered the arts of camouflage, burrowing and diversion, and if all else fails they will just use their ninja like climbing abilities to head to higher ground, so they can ambush the seeker if need be.

(Image Link)

So if your cat invites you to play hide-and-seek you may want to politely decline and distract them with some catnip, or else you're playing right into their paws.

Have You Had Your Stress Dream Today?

Our dreams transport us to a magical kingdom full of fun and imagination when we're young, but then our pragmatic adult minds come in and take a wrecking ball to the kingdom, killing our imaginary friends in the process.

This transition is sadly unavoidable because, as this comic by Dami Lee shows, we can't maintain a carefree state of mind when stress dreams keep reminding us magic kingdoms are expensive and really far away.

Photos Of Winter Weather Turning Cars Into Works Of Art

(Image Link)

Jack Frost is one amazing artist, but the cool, muted palette of winter is a bit limiting, so Jack has to go looking for places to put up his art other than a canvas or a city wall- so he slaps coats of cold on our cars.

(Image Link)

His icy art comes in many forms, from simple sheets to dangerously avant garde icicles, but my favorite car-based works by Frost involve feathers.

(Image Link)

But Jack refuses to restrict himself to any one style of art, and for every pretty and pleasant work he creates Jack counters with an edgier piece that really challenges the viewer.

This work challenges the car owner to open their door without shattering the window!

Kick-Ass Movie Poster Art By Frank McCarthy

Movie poster artwork is supposed to capture the feel of the film, but over the years creativity has been replaced with generic mass appeal, leaving movie posters looking dull and lifeless.

But it's hard to tell just how boring they've become until you check out these action packed movie posters by Frank McCarthy.

Frank's posters were made for people who like to watch movies full of action, and his posters are so dynamic they're often more exciting to view than the movies they're advertising!

Frank created amazing poster artwork for movies like Where Eagles Dare, The Dirty Dozen, The Dark of the Sun (aka The Mercenaries) and Thunderball, and his art style influenced generations of comic artists looking to put the "pop" back in pop culture.

Comic Characters Who Started Out As A Joke

Rocket Raccoon became a big hit with fans after appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy, The Tick is about to have his third TV show, and Howard the Duck got his own (albeit crappy) movie decades before Spider-Man.

Know what else these characters all have in common? They all started out as joke characters that became seriously popular.

Rocket Raccoon was initially named Rocky, created as an homage to the Beatles song, but after his first few guest appearances he became popular enough to get his own mini-series.

Then we didn't see him again for like 25 years...but now Rocket's one of the most popular Marvel Comics characters of all time!

The Tick started out as an absurdist parody of superheroes Ben Edlund created for the New England Comics newsletter, and folks liked The Tick so much he became the comic chain's mascot.

Ben began drawing Tick strips for the NEC newsletter, and then the company got into the business of making their own comics and started releasing The Tick as a series.

Lastly there's my favorite cigar chompin' duck Howard, who was created by Steve Gerber as a gag but became a pluckin' hero.

Howard came from an alternate Earth full of funny animals instead of humans, so he was the perfect everyduck to star in a comic series that satirizes American culture and genre fiction.

The original Howard The Duck series dealt with existentialist themes and life in a multiverse, and this is the series' main joke, according to Gerber-

"that life's most serious moments and most incredibly dumb moments are often distinguishable only by a momentary point of view."

The All-Female Skate Crews You Can Follow On Instagram

Back in the day both guys and girls enjoyed riding skateboards, but by the time vert and street skating became a pro sport the boys ruled the skate park.

There were always a few female skaters around, but in the 80s and 90s girls just didn't seem that in to the idea of skating on the streets, and therefore had less of a presence during those "Skate or Die" years.

But now female skaters are riding out in full force and forming crush-worthy crews to let the boys know they came to SK8 hard.

Crews like The Skate Witches, Nefarious Skate Crew and the Santa Cruz Lady Lurkers are getting all kinds of love on Instagram, where they're inspiring a new generation of female skaters to roll out.

Gamer Grandma Gets Gritty In Conan Exiles

Conan ain't your grandma's fantasy hero, and his adventures are full of the kinds of things most polite people try not to discuss with their grandmas.

But Shirley Curry ain't your average grandma, as established by her love of Skyrim, so she's not afraid to embrace the bloody and lustful world of Conan Exiles.

Just don't expect to see a pro gamer playthrough, because as Shirley says "I don't know meanings of things, I just play games!"

(YouTube Link)

I wonder how Shirley would feel about this game if she knew it had an "endowment" slider during male character creation and genital physics? Heck, I don't know how I feel about that!!

The Faces Behind Your Favorite Comics Revealed!

Many comic artists reveal a bit (or a whole lot) about themselves through their comics, and yet they often remain unseen.

Sometimes this is by design, because they're shy or they want their comic to speak for itself, but more often than not it's because we're too busy posting their comics to speak on the creator.

So let's change that, shall we?

This grinning man is Brian Gordon, the guy who draws that duck you love in Fowl Language Comics.

And this gorgeous gal in the striped sweater is Sarah Andersen, the creator of Sarah's Scribbles, aka that comic you relate to and adore.

Neither of them look anything like the characters they draw, but Cassandra Calin draws a spot-on cartoon version of herself for her comic C. Cassandra.

The guy at the top of the post is Chris Grady, creator of Lunarbaboon, and he also looks a lot like his character, but the creator of Catana Comics, Catana Chetwynd, has a much smaller and more detailed head than her character.

These Colorful Illustrations Will Test Your Knowledge Of Hollywood Movies

Filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams and David Fincher have had pretty eclectic careers in Hollywood because they don't limit themselves to any one genre or style of filmmaking.

And even though Abrams and Spielberg are best known for their sci-fi projects they've both done a great job of writing and/or directing serious dramas too, like Regarding Henry and The Color Purple.

Illustrator Maria Suarez-Inclan creates colorful montages she calls "Hollywood Kits", representing the careers of these writers/directors, which kinda ends up looking like a bunch of stuff laid out on a flea market vendor's blanket.

The movies and TV shows represented in each piece are listed at the bottom but it's still hard to figure out where all the symbols belong, and Martin Scorsese's is definitely the hardest.

Vintage Photos From The Golden Age MGM Cartoon Studio

There are more animated shows and movies made today than ever before thanks to digital art and animation software, which speeds up the process and allows for a few people to do the work of a dozen.

But back in the pre-digital days cartoonmaking was a very hands on process, with gangs of animators doodling their way through reams of paper, painters painting cels and backgrounds, and zany noisemakers creating that iconic cartoon sound.

These fun vintage photos give us a behind-the-scenes look at how Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio made the animated series Tom & Jerry during its golden age, circa the mid-1940s.

The pics are from a chapter in the classic Gene Byrnes book The Complete Guide To Cartooning called "How Animated Cartoons Are Made", written by Executive Producer at MGM Fred Quimby.

It'll make you appreciate how much work went into those cat and mouse cartoons!

Lonely Widower Posts Ad For A New Fishing Buddy On Classified Site

The older you get the more you're forced to deal with loss- the loss of physical and mental prowess, loss of friends and loved ones, and the loss of interest in activities we once enjoyed.

But getting back to doing those things you used to enjoy can help you recover from a loss, and it might help you make new friends too.

Ray Johnstone of Lewiston South, Australia, used to be an avid fisherman, and after his wife and his best friend passed away the 75-year-old decided to hit the internet in search of a new fishing mate.

He posted his fishing friend request on Facebook first but got no responses, so he decided to post a request on the classified ad site Gumtree, with his friendship marked as "free":

Much to Ray's surprise his Gumtree ad went viral and hooked him a real life fishing mate from Brisbane, 22-year-old Mati Batsinilas, who treated Ray to an all expenses paid fishing trip off the Queensland coast.
