Amazing Ball Point Pen Art By Jim Rugg



Jim Rugg explores pop culture as the subject matter in his ball point pen drawings, in the style of classroom doodles on sheets of lined paper.

His hilarious illustrations make great use of color, tongue in cheek humor and as many popular movie icons as he can fit in between the margins.

The Walking Dead Are Coming To Comic Con 2012



Creator of the Walking Dead comic book Robert Kirkman plans to unleash hordes of zombies on San Diego during Comic Con 2012.

In fact, there will be so many zombies that he plans on renting a nearby stadium in order to house them all, and those willing to pay for a bone chilling experience with the undead.

Here's more on this gruesome event:
So, what are these activities? According to THR, they include: “an obstacle course where participants can do one of three things: be a survivor and race through a zombie-infested evacuation zone; be a walker who joins the ranks of the undead; or a spectator who watches from the sidelines during an Escape Party.”

“Our fans have been reading about it, watching it and now they get to live it with The Walking Dead Escape. We are literally transforming Petco Park into the early days of society’s collapse and San Diego is just the first city to fall.” said Robert Kirkman via press release.

Sounds scarier than watching a Padres game!

The PBS series Off Book sets its sights on artists that have chosen LEGO bricks as their medium, and the spectacular plastic works they create. It may inspire you to create some LEGO works of your own, and if you do please share!

Lying Isn't The Only Way To Set Your Pants On Fire



A woman in Orange County, California discovered that rock collecting can be a dangerous hobby, when the rocks she'd collected from the beach earlier that day suddenly ignited in her pocket!

Here's the scoop:
Orange County Fire Authority officials tell the newspaper that the woman collected the rocks on a nearby beach, returned home and "was standing in her kitchen ... when the pocket of her cargo shorts caught fire."
"I talked to the paramedic who treated her, and in his 27 years in responding to calls near the beach, he's never seen this," Fire Authority Capt. Marc Stone told the Register. "The rocks were still smoking when firefighters took them to the hospital."

Now, they're being tested. It's possible, Stone said, that phosphorus in the stones may have caused the combustion.

And they say hobbies like rock and shell collecting are a safe and relaxing activity.

The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Is Ready To Make A Comeback



If you've wondered where rock god Prince has been hiding out for the last few years, it appears that he has been undergoing some radical anti-aging treatments.

But now he's back and looking even more youthful than when he started his career in the late 70s, ready to hit the stage complete with scooter and Purple Rain era wardrobe.

I'm glad to see that he's moved past that whole name change debacle and has chosen to embrace his roots. Now he just needs to hit the playgrounds and find a girl wearing a raspberry beret!

A Different Kind Of NYC Subway Art


(YouTube Link)

Artist Ming Liang Lu has a rather unique way of creating portraits for customers that visit him in various subway platforms and tunnels throughout New York City-he cuts up small sheets of paper to look like his subjects, and the results are quite incredible.

The cut paper portraits are so small and delicate it's hard to imagine that such a clear likeness could be achieved in such a manner, but Ming has obviously been at this for a while (this video was posted in 2010), and his skills with the scissors are most impressive indeed.

Totally Neat Animatronic Terminator Bust



This animatronic Terminator head looks like it came straight from Judgment Day, complete with red glowing eyes and teeth modeled after Schwarzenegger's own mighty set of  choppers.

Created by Animatronic Works Japan, it's not for those who fear the subjugation of humanity by robotic overlords, but it definitely makes one hell of a conversation piece!

Hit the link to check out videos of the head moving about, waiting for an opportunity to lash out against the humans who dare to keep it trapped inside a glass case.

Adorable Animated Short - Crayon Dragon


(YouTube Link)

This imaginative and visually appealing animated short is by Toniko Pantoja, who is a second year student at CalArts with a promising career in animation ahead of him!

Dragons are always portrayed as ornery and bloodthirsty, so it's nice to know that they have a cutesy, artistic side too.

Life Support Machines That Keep Each Other Alive



Installation artist and mad scientist Revital Cohen came up with a rather kooky idea for her latest work entitled The Immortal-connect a bunch of life support machines together so that they will keep each other alive ad infinitum.

Why, you may ask, would she do such a thing? "The Immortal investigates human dependence on electronics, the desire to make machines replicate organisms and our perception of anatomy as reflected by biomedical engineering."

You can see a video of the machines in action at the Beautiful/Decay link below. I wonder how much her HMO is charging her to use this array of machines?

Illinois Approves The Use Of Mini Horses As Service Animals



Miniature horse fans rejoice! Thanks to a Senate vote, miniature horses have now been approved for use as service animals in the state of Illinois.

Here's why mini horses make awesome guides:
According to the Guide Horse Foundation, miniature horses can be useful for people with severe allergies or phobias to dogs, or people who want an animal likely to live longer than a dog. The horses are strong enough to provide support when handlers need to lean on them, and they are not easily distracted by crowds.

So, the next time you see a mini horse on a leash, sporting a fashionable vest and some oh-so-cute little shoes, don't panic!

They're here to help, and they're not just in it for the free carrots.

Taste The Dark Side In Blk Bottled Spring Water



I don't consider thick black liquid to be a tantalizing beverage option, unless it comes in a shot glass and contains about forty percent alcohol, but Blk Beverages Black Spring Water claims to be more refreshing than drinking a bottle of ink.

It doesn't get you drunk, it gets you vitaminized, so here's the scoop straight from the source of the darkness:
Blk Beverages Black Spring Water's proprietary blend of Fulvic Minerals (a derivative of plant matter) are mined from a 70 million year old source deep within the earth. Naturally black in color, Blk Beverages Spring Water's formula binds to the molecules of Blk Beverages pure Canadian Spring Water turning it naturally black, with no artificial dyes, coloring, or additives. Fulvic Minerals are critical in growth of plant life, helping the transportation and absorption of nutrients. Fulvic Mineral's small molecular structure allows for the fast absorption of over 77 different trace minerals and elements, powerful electrolytes, antioxidants, and free radical scavengers.

Nothing like some free radical scavengers to quench your thirst. Mmmmmmmm!

Corn That Looks Like It Came From Candy Island



This heavenly rainbow of kernels is from a variety of corn known as Glass Gem Corn, and it looks like it would make the most fun batch of candy corn ever!

This unusual variety is grown by "Seeds Trust, a family seed company, got the seeds for glass gem corn from Greg Schoen who got his seeds from his "corn-teacher", Carl Barnes, an 80ish year old part-Cherokee man, in Oklahoma."

I can't help but wonder if this corn tastes as good as it looks? Either way, it would make the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner table decoration, or string them up at your next farm themed rave and watch everyone in attendance trip out on the colors.

At The Pet Groomers When...WTF?!



This cat has a serious love-hate relationship with his owners. One minute they're petting his belly and feeding him cans of Fancy Feast and the next they're shaving his fur to make him look like a mock Stegosaurus.

Clearly he had someone take this photo for him as a cry for help, so it should be turned over to the ASPCA immediately!

Kiddies-this is what catnip addiction can lead to, so keep your fur clean and just say no!

The Strangest Review Of The Avengers Ever


(YouTube Link)

Want to know what two googly eyed chins thought about the blockbuster movie The Avengers? They loved it, and if you have a strange sense of humor you'll love watching them talk about The Avengers, and other weird stuff, like a pair of real life chinigans.

Spoiler alert: the chins talk about something that happens within the first ten minutes of the film, so if you're worried about going in to see the movie without knowing anything about it don't watch. Otherwise, enjoy the madness review!

The team behind Apocalypse Pizza Video are hoping to turn their project into a feature film, and by the look of this trailer it could be a lot of fun to watch! (NSFWish due to coarse language and humor)

Show your fellow cosplayers that you mean business with this DIY Gears Of War replica shotgun, which lets you load actual shells and scare the crap out of anyone suckered in to believing it actually fires live ammo.

Built by Mike Iverson of Blind Squirrel Props, the end result is stunningly realistic, and Mike was kind enough to include exhaustive step by step photos of the process, and basic plans so you can build one of these bad boys for yourself.

Now that's one good looking boomstick!

Go Out In Style With These Crazy Shaped Coffins



I can think of no better way to celebrate the life of a ballerina who has bitten the dust than burying her in a coffin shaped like a ballet slipper.

That way, when her body is exhumed by our alien overlords in the future, they'll immediately know her skillset, and can therefore properly employ her re-animated corpse based on her talents.

It's safe to say that not all passions should be commemorated in coffin form, I mean, who would want to be buried in a giant My Little Pony, or a casket shaped like a giant turkey baster?

Student Builds Fully Functional Portal Turret


(YouTube Link)

YouTube user kss5095 decided to get creative and show his love of video games at the same time with his final project for Advanced Mechatronics at Penn State, so he built a fully functioning turret like you'd find in the video game series Portal.

The turret is so sweet that it even has a soothing voice recording, which lures you out of hiding so it can blast you with laser guided NERF missiles.

This guy has a long career ahead of him in either animatronics or engineering weapons for the military, but for now he has the ultimate home defense system at his disposal, that is once he upgrades to live rounds!

A Geeky Art Tribute To The Avengers And Maurice Sendak



In the midst of Avengers mania we lost a seminal talent in children's literature-Maurice Sendak, so DeviantARTist AgarthanGuide decided to pay tribute in a manner most befitting an ubergeek-by turning the Avengers into a parade of Wild Things!

I like that Black Widow is waving a banner that says "Shield!", and all the detail that went into this piece, but where are the Hulk's pants?

The Brood Princess is hungry, so a few industrious little aliens hit that buffet counter known as Earth to find her the perfect meal, in episode 2 of Invageddon called "The Big Eating".

Take A Ghostbusters Themed Tour Of New York


(YouTube Link)

The Ghostbusters tour of New York is a tribute to the classic film that showed us all we don't need to be afraid of ghosts, or giant marshmallows for that matter.

A byproduct of Bleedingcool's Patrick Willems relocating to the Big Apple, this fan film is as much a tribute to the city as it is a couple of geeks hamming it up on camera and re-enacting scenes from the film.

And they even have their own official tour musician, so if you're a fan of the film you're probably going to get a kick out of this vid. If not, expect a visit from Slimer while you sleep.

Trailer For Dragon Age The Animated Series


(YouTube Link)

The video game series Dragon Age is dark fantasy at it's finest, full of murder, intrigue, magic and, of course, dragons.

This clip from the upcoming Dragon Age animated series by Funimation looks pretty cool, but I don't know how I feel about the cheesy spell casting sound effects, or how easy they make it look to defeat a dragon.

But if it stays dark, bloody and full of action then I'm on board.

The Birth Of Black Widow



The Avengers are such an iconic team of superheroes that it seems fitting for them to be celebrated by working them into an iconic painting.

Argentinian artist Julian Totino Tedesco shows his love for the classics and comic books with his piece The Birth Of Black Widow, which is based on Botticelli's masterpiece The Birth Of Venus and was used as the alternate cover art for Fantastic Four #17.

Venus is cool and all, but Black Widow has a much higher body count, and a skin tight black suit to match.
