Action Movie Kid - A Video Series That Brings Imagination To Life

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

Dreamworks artist Daniel Hashimoto doesn’t take his work home with him, because he’d rather spend time playing with his son James and using a little movie magic to turn James into the world’s youngest action movie star.

Now James may not do all of his own stunts, and he may have the power of visual effects programs like After Effects helping him look more heroic, but their video series called Action Movie Kid is about the power of imagination, and bringing James’ superhero dreams to life.

From daring grappling gun stunts to sweet lightsaber swingin' moves, James is ready for a leading role in upcoming movies like Die Hard: With A Kid or The Bourne Adoption.

Animated Short Shows How To Read Cat Body Language

(Video Link)

Cats are kinda crazy and unpredictable, or at least we think they are because we have a hard time reading their body language and understanding how their postures and behaviors reveal what they’re actually thinking.

Now, thanks to animator Cindy Suen and her adorable animated short Cats Communication, we have a guide to the visual language of felines.

It's not the most definitive source on the subject, but it reveals enough information so you can avoid becoming a target of kitty rage the next time you encounter one of these furry freaks in the urban jungle.

Jimmy Kimmel Asks Kids If They Know Any Naughty Words

(Video Link)

We recently posted a video featuring a guy asking his three year old nephew to recite all the bad words he knows, many of which were unsurprisingly butt related.

But Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t satisfied with the results- he felt that this particular kid's list of curse words didn't fairly represent the bad words known by all kids, so he decided to head out to Hollywood Boulevard to see what kind of filth was running through the mind of L.A.’s children.

Kimmel's scientific research into the subject yielded some rather surprising results, including the fact that most kids think dumb is a bad word, and when these kids let loose it's enough to make a sailor blush!

TMNT Movie Trailer Spawns The Michaelangelo Meme

(Image Via Awkward Elevator)

A trailer for Michael Bay's controversial Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot movie finally made its way onto the interwebs this week, and while it relieved some of the anxiety felt by fans of the franchise it also created a whole new meme- the Michaelangelo.

Mike’s odd appearance in the trailer was immediately likened to that of Shrek, then other folks jumped on board the Michaelangelo meme train and created some hilarious visual masterpieces sure to make net surfers say cowabunga.

Got a Michaelangelo meme of your own design? Post it in the comments section!

Hoarder Is Killed By His Own Wall Of Trash

(Image Via WFAA)

Increased risk of fire, exposure to toxic mold, and toxoplasmosis due to animal waste exposure are all risks you run living life as a hoarder, but the most common risk is the one that recently took the life of a Dallas man- death by suffocation or crushing, when giant piles of junk come crashing down on top of you.

The 67-year-old Dallas resident was buried under what neighbors described as “a ten foot high wall of trash” so police had to enter the home through the roof, searching for two full days because the dogs were unable to sniff out the victim's body beneath all the trash and rotting animal carcasses.

The only good thing to come of this tragic incident is the fact that his dog Buddy survived the ordeal and found a new home with one of the victim's friends. They should probably change his name from Buddy to Lucky!

What Marge Simpson Would Look Like In Real Life

(Video Link)

The Simpsons, and all the cartoony folks that populate the imaginary city of Springfield, may look cute and colorful on the small screen, but in real life they'd look downright freaky!

This depiction of Marge Simpson in real life called "Flower Marge" was created by photographer Alexander Khokhlov, with the help of makeup artist Veronica Ershova and stylist Mikhail Kravchenko.

Marge's hair gets its textural look from the hundreds of chrysanthemums which were glued to the frame that forms her signature hairstyle, and when the model closes her eyes the transformation into cartoon superstar is complete.

The included video shows the making of Flower Marge, but you may want to mute the sound before you tune in.

Ghost Photographs - Little Spectral Paintings On Found Images

Even though we can’t see them with the naked eye, there are ghosts hanging around everywhere we go, revealed in the developed photographic image. In fact, some of our friends and neighbors are ghosts, at least according to Angela Deane’s Tumblr site Ghost Photographs.

Angela ghostifies found photographs with a little paint and a lot of tongue in cheek, revealing the spectral side of the human world and using her skills as a ghost whisperer for good.

Turns out all those Halloween costumes we were right- ghosts really do wear white sheets with cut out holes for eyes, I guess those costumes weren’t so cheesy after all!

Impressive Papercraft Phoenix Sculpture By Zim & Zou

Paper has been used as an artistic medium for centuries, with papercraft creations used as decorative elements and inexpensive works of art by many cultures across the globe.

This amazing papercraft phoenix sculpture created by papercraft superstars Zim & Zou looks like it could be the centerpiece for a fiery fall festival. However, this particularly vibrant work was created for a pro-recycling campaign put together by French environmental organization Ecofolio.

The phoenix looks so delicate, with intricately detailed layered elements that look like they’d end up ripped or wrinkled during transportation, but surprisingly this papercraft masterpiece was placed on display under glass at a bus stop in Paris.

Morrissey And Phil Lynott Go Head To Head On Pop Quiz

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

Pop Quiz is a star studded British game show that has been revived many times over the years yet never seems to live up to it's original incarnation from the 80s, mostly because pop stars were way cooler back then.

This totally rockin' episode from 1984 stars Kim Wilde, Derek Forbes from Simple Minds, rock legend Philip Lynott and the Moz himself- Morrissey!

Watch as Morrissey suddenly regrets his decision to appear on this painfully milquetoast show, laugh as the host in the funny shirt, Mike Read, tries to act like he’s totally New Wave while using hip lingo like “groovy” and calling people “captain”, and wonder how they got Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott to stay so mellow throughout the entire show.

Thomas Card Documents Tokyo Street Style

Tokyo’s Harajuku district is known as the place to go if you want to see outrageous street fashions and uniquely Japanese counterculture movements, and even those who are in the know can’t seem to keep up with all the iterations of style which are constantly appearing in this most fashionable district.

Photographer Thomas Card travelled to Japan one year after the tsunami devastation to document some cutting edge Japanese street styles for his book Tokyo Adorned, but unlike previous photo series featuring Harajuku style Card’s series documents the subjects in front of a white background, so their crazy clothes and accessories can take center stage.

There are so many different elements to their outfits that it may take a second or third look to see it all, and can you imagine how long it takes them to get dressed?

This Is The Corey Feldman Music Video You've Been Waiting For

(Video Link)

Don’t call it a comeback, he’s been here for years, you just haven’t been able to see him because he hasn’t been in any TV shows, or movies, he’s been playing music and trying to keep Corey from being so Corey.

Corey Feldman is back, with a new music video for his band Corey’s Angels called Corey Feldman’s “DUH!”

In the video we see Corey wearing his signature Michael Jackson inspired outfits, busting some MJ style moves and clowning around classic TV style with a bunch of scantily clad babes.

I'm sure you'll have lots of questions after watching the video, but unfortunately there are simply no answers to be found. This is, after all, a product of the enigma known as Corey Feldman.

Images Of Bears Doing Human Things

(Image Via Imgur)

There’s a reason they chose a bear to be the star of so many cartoon shows, from Yogi to Baloo to the Three Bears in those Looney Tunes shorts, because very few critters act as humanistic as bears.

When a bear stands up and gives you a wave you can almost see your big, hairy uncle doing the same thing, and when they hold a newspaper, sit at a picnic table waiting for a basket full of goodies to come their way, or simply stick their tongue out at the photographer we instantly imagine a friend or family member doing the same thing.

Enjoy this selection of images showing Bears Doing Human Things, put together by the animal loving folks at Bored Panda.

A Stomach Churning Series Of Photographs

The best way to see what lies inside your stomach is to get a scalpel and split yourself wide open, or shrink a ship full of photographers down to the size of a pill and swallow them whole.

But the best way to see what your stomach acid will do to anything it comes in contact with is to swallow some film and see what happens.

That’s the idea behind “I turn myself inside out” by Luke Evans and Joshua Lake- frames of unexposed film were swallowed then retrieved after digestion (nicest way to put it), then the film was examined under an electron microscope and enlarged images, like the one above, were printed.

Here's the idea behind the series from the creators:

There is a physicality to film that we wanted to explore: the soft emulsion layer, its thickness, the way it reacts to touch and temperature. At this point we were really excited because there was absolutely no way to envision how the results would look, and that no two would be the same: would the film's gelatin content be completely digested by enzymes? Would we ever get the film back?

Photographer Captures The Strange World Of Creative Dog Grooming

The world of creative dog grooming revolves around color usage, contour shapes, and other design principles that feel right at home in print but are hard to imagine seeing on your pet.

Paul Nathan is a fashion photographer who was captivated by the strange beauty of creatively groomed canines, specifically those who compete in a national competition called Intergroom, so he put his pretty pictures of dogs looking rather ridiculous into a book appropriately entitled Groomed.

Dogs that have undergone a creative grooming makeover look fine on stage with the other colorful contestants, but they would look completely ridiculous walking around the neighborhood!

PBS Off Book Examines The Rise Of Video Game Economies

(Video Link)

The billion dollar virtual economies created by massively multiplayer online video games are something very few people saw coming in the 80s, when video games were just beginning to hold their own against other popular forms of media.

Even more surprising is how fast these virtual economies sprang up, and how people around the world are now making a living farming for loot in video games like World of Warcraft and EVE Online.

This episode of the PBS series Off Book focuses on the strange virtual economies created by video games, and how this internal economic snafu has become quite a headache for both the game studios and international law enforcement officials. Dern gold farmers, dey tuker jobs!

Every Spider-Man Ever Will Appear In Upcoming Series Event

No other superhero has had as many imitators, incarnations or variations as that wisecracking webhead Spider-Man, and even though it’s hard to keep track of all the men and women who have donned the Spidey suit it’s easy to see why Marvel loves coming up with new versions of their most popular hero.

Series writer Dan Slott revealed an upcoming series event called Spider-Verse which will feature “every Spider-Man from every universe” in one big ol’ web slinging bonanza that will start in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man and expand across multiple titles. And what's the best part about this crazy event? Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham will be there!!!!

Mini-Doc About South African Train Surfers - Staff Riding

(Video Link)

When the railroad cars come roaring into towns in South Africa some of the locals see it as an opportunity to take a ride and advance the dangerous sport of train surfing.

Marc Casino’s mini-doc Staff Riding focuses on these rail riding rebels, revealing how these thrill seekers relieve their angst by throwing on some sweet Adidas gear and staring death in the empty socket.

It’s good to know these guys feel that train surfing is a better outlet than violence and armed robbery, but if they want to make train surfing into a real sport they need to get their hands on some Adidas helmets and athletic pads because athletes need to live to play again.

A Terrifying Robot That Will Gyrate Her Way Into Your Nightmares

(Video Link)

Robots can build cars, take a spin on Mars and generally do some pretty cool stuff, but are we already running out of ideas for uses?

You might assume that if you saw this gyrating robot dancer doing her hypnotic hip sway for them and didn’t know the back story, but this scary robo-gal is an art installation created strictly for entertainment purposes by Jordan Wolfson in conjunction with special effects studio Spectral Motion, and not necessarily the next step in robotic evolution.

So maybe she isn't the future of robo-tech, but it looks like Chuck E. Cheese is about to get a sexy new stripper to add to his animatronic band!

First Episode Of Machinima's New Sci-Fi Web Series ENORMOUS

(Video Link)

Enormous is a web series with a mighty big name to live up to, and a highly competitive online market full of quality productions to vie against for viewers, but the Machinima and Prime Universe Films production looks like it might live up to its monicker.

Enormous tells a different kind of post apocalyptic tale- the world is overrun by monsters, and the remaining human survivors have to fight for survival or risk becoming a pile of critter crap.

It suffers from the usual first episode problems, namely generic dialog, slow pacing and actors still becoming familiar with their roles, but these problems are sure to be ironed out as the series gathers steam.

A Boy Imagines A Day On The Town In This Animated Short - Around

(Video Link)

Around is the kind of animated short that some viewers may find disturbing, not because of mature content or language but because of the squiggly hand drawn animation style.

Around was created by Ryu Kato in 2010, and it's a visionary short full of living motion, lines and otherwise, with a rough illustrative style that comes off as a mixture of Bill Plympton style and the unnervingly twitchy look of Dr. Katz.

The premise is simply "A chain of dizzying images illustrate a day in an imaginary town as seen through the eyes of a boy", but there is a lot more to this short than a simple visionary trip around town.

Real Life Tetris Art Installations By Michael Johansson

It can be a real pain to fit all of your stuff into a garage, storage space or closet, but thinking of the entire process as nothing but a big game of Tetris might make it easier.

Artist Michael Johansson is really good at playing Tetris in real life, with real life objects you'd find in storage, and his colorful puzzle game inspired art installations show his amazing ability to pack a bunch of junk into spaces of all shapes and sizes.

The objects in his installations fill every inch of space perfectly, and the color arrangement gives the whole arrangement a video game feel.

Blizzard Artist Gives Disney Movie Stills A Digital Painting Makeover

Animation has come a long way since the days of classic Disney animated features like 101 Dalmatians and The Sword In The Stone, and now that we use digital art and animation programs to make the whole process easier than ever before these classic films would have a very different look if they were made today.

Tyson Murphy is a lead character artist for Blizzard, and he decided to do a digital painting lighting study by painting over stills from old Disney films.

Tyson's versions look very painterly, and the characters definitely look more realistic, but for my money it's impossible to improve on the perfection of the original backgrounds. Tyson says he's planning to do more of these studies soon, may I suggest a scene from the Black Cauldron?

Beware The Staten Island Clown

(Image Via Instagram)

(Image Via Instagram)

Coulrophobes had better steer clear of Staten Island for a while, until the local authorities take care of a certain creepy clown they’ve got lurking around the city streets.

He has become a bit of a local legend in the few short weeks he’s been clowning around the streets of S.I., because people claim he’s an elusive clown, appearing with a wave then disappearing back into the city before most of them can snap a pic.

Is this the same clown faced freak that has been haunting Northampton, England, or is this one of the British clown’s disciples? Whatever IT is, if you see the Staten Island clown prepare to laugh your head off!

Bizarre Helmets That Warp Facial Features

Helmets are worn to protect the head against flying objects and the elements, occasionally worn to keep a Sith lord alive and show the galaxy that he’s a total badass, but these are not the helmets you’re looking for if you need head protection.

These bizarre dome helmets distort facial features in fun ways, helping Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee create some truly unique portraits for a series called The Objectuals, a series where the subjects look like Space Age supervillains or something out of an anime series.

Hyungkoo definitely has an affinity for facial feature distortion, with another series called Face Trace you can check out on his site.

Dad Asks Three-Year-Old To List All The Bad Words He Knows

(Video Link)

Toddlers are delightfully innocent, and any rude words that come rolling out of their mouth sound pretty darn funny, especially when they’re trying to prove how grown up they are.

Redditor PirbyKuckett asked his three-year-old son to list all the bad words he knows, and the kid’s reply is just what you’d expect from a grown up toddler.

You guessed it- butts, lots of butts, and one actual curse word at the end which makes this video awesomely NSFW, but that's what you get when you tell a kid "Tell me all the bad words you know...GO!"

Frank Zappa Played The Pope On Ren & Stimpy

(Video Link)

Once upon a time, way back in 1992, a little cartoon show about a dog and a cat called Ren & Stimpy was making waves with episodes about rubber nipples, a toast headed superhero, and all sorts of gross out gags parents felt were too extreme for kids.

But Ren & Stimpy wasn’t really a kiddie show, John Kricfalusi’s seminal animated freakout simply fell victim to the cartoon stigma built by Disney decades earlier, which established the idea that all TV cartoon shows should be made for kids.

Proof that Ren & Stimpy was not made for kids lies in the episode where Frank Zappa voiced the Pope, who is rescued by Powdered Toast Man and has to cling on to Toast Man's speedo clad buns as they fly through the air.

Boy, they sure don’t make cartoon shows like that anymore!

Game Of Thrones Advertising Fail

A note to those in charge of advertising for Game of Thrones- be careful where you place your billboard ads or you might not get a very kind reception from the people.

It seems someone dropped the ball when they decided to put up this billboard advertising season 4 of GoT with the slogan “All Men Must Die”, because the billboard is located right above the Santa Monica Pavilion, a building that provides residential care for the elderly. 

I’m sure plenty of people will be watching when the show premieres in early April, but I doubt many of the viewers are going to be senior citizens with an advertising slogan like that!

Commuting Would Be Better If You Could Ride A Giant Cat To Work

(Video Link)

Morning commutes can be rough, especially when you're riding public transportation to work, but it would all be so much more enjoyable if you could ride a giant cat to work!

You'd finally be able to catch up on the sleep you've been missing, the cat would provide you with a bath if you didn't have time to take one before work, and if giant rats attack the city you're sitting pretty atop your own rodent devouring machine.

This pleasantly ridiculous Japanese commercial for Lotte's Fit gum, who claims chewing will put you in a good mood, but if you can ride a giant cat to work without being in a good mood you're either allergic to cats or you'd prefer to ride the puppy to work.

The Family Album Of Lucybelle Crater

Photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard spent the better part of the 50s and 60s putting together this apocalyptic family portrait series, using his own family members as the subjects in a creepy collection that was way ahead of its time.

His wife wore an old hag mask and played the role of Lucybelle Crater, while other friends and family members donned masks and played along, creating the kind of family portraits only the Manson family could love.

The entire Family Album of Lucybelle Crater was collected in book form in 1974, two years after Meatyard's death, and I can’t help but wonder how many people received the book as a gift or bought a copy on a recommendation, then found the whole thing too disturbing to keep in the house!

Geekapella Presents - Robocop Theme 1987

(Video Link)

What’s the one thing that was missing from both the original and the remake version of Robocop? Some will say wizards, others will say aliens, but a select few will claim that what both movies were sorely lacking is some good ol' fashioned a capella style singing.

They are the Andy Bernards of the world, the Burton Gusters, the Carlton Banks’s’s, and they are the target audience for Max and Sam’s Geekapella version of the Robocop Theme (1987).

The date’s there to remind you that this song is dedicated to the original movie, and the dancing in the video- well, that’s just there to remind everyone that Max and Sam really know how to get down!
