I'm Not Gonna Make It To Halloween!

I'm so excited about Halloween that I decided to put my pumpkin out early, and this is what happened to poor old Jack.

Take it from me: don't go putting your pumpkins out too early, or you'll be wishing you hadn't come Halloween night!

Turning Life Into A Playable Video Game

(Vimeo Link)

Daniel Disselkoen had a really interesting concept in mind while working on his graduation project "Remake Reality"- what if life could be more like a video game?

His response is Man-eater, a fun little art installation/inspiration for imaginative tram riders that encourages passengers to play along.

You close one eye and imagine that little Man-eater in the window gobbling up pedestrians as you ride the tram across town.

Doesn't that sound like a fun way to pass the time on public transportation?

A Silent Hill Version Of SpongeBob SquarePants

This is what SpongeBob SquarePants would look like if he was born and raised in the madness of Silent Hill, instead of the calm waters of Bikini Bottom.

He's terrifying to behold, but I'm pretty sure he didn't get his job flipping burgers because of his good looks and customer service skills.

Street Jewelry Installations By Liesbet Bussche

Liesbet Bussche is a street artist who wants to add a bit of class, and proper jewelry accents, to all that ugly junk hanging around the city streets.

She adds her whimsical touches, like earring backs, half heart pendants and glowing chains, to the stuff on the side of the road, and the city gains about a hundred style points overnight.

Water Light Graffiti

(Vimeo Link)

This water activated LED light installation was created by Antonin Fourneau, and it looks like it would be fun to mess around with on a hot summer day!

The LED are "illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw."

Xenomorph Tyrannosaurus Made Out Of LEGO

This is the dreaded LegoXenoTyranno, but you can call him Alien Rex. 

A crafty builder named Retinence drew inspiration from a concept design by nebezial and created this impressive looking LEGO sculpture, complete with all sorts of pokey things and sharp bits.

It's the scariest critter I've ever seen rendered in LEGO, and kinda looks like a badass version of Grimlock from Transformers.

A Musical Performance On The New York Subway

(Vimeo Link)

I'm pretty sure this New York subway performance by the Stay Human band was well rehearsed, mainly because of the perfect camera angles and posed players, but that doesn't make it any less fun to watch!

Dig on some soulful subway grooves, played by some dapper fellows who always travel in style and like to get a few licks in on their way to the gig.

Lenticular LEGO Portrait Of Batman And Joker

This awesome piece of optical LEGO art was created by Arthur Gugick, a man who had a vision of Batman and the Joker on the same piece of LEGO art then made his vision come true.

Tilt it one way-you've got the Caped Crusader, tilt it the other way you've got Mr. Joker in all his glory.

Arthur's superheroic work has added another angle to the world of LEGO art!

An Old Timey Song Based On Bioshock

(YouTube Link)

It's The Bioshock Song, a new tune based on the video game Bioshock, which has a Big Band sound and really charming lyrics.

Rapture may be gone, but Andrew Ryan's legacy lives on in song!

Neil Gaiman's seminal comic book series Sandman changed the face of mature rated comic books forever, and made readers expect more from their illustrated storylines.

The Bundle Of Creative Energy Known As DOMA

The artist collective known as DOMA has created a wide variety of artworks, installations and lots of stuff that defies categorization since they first came together fifteen years ago.

Today, their works add color and life to city streets as well as gallery walls, and encountering a DOMA "happening" is like bearing witness to a spontaneous eruption of psychedelic color.

Check out the links below and you'll see just how colorful DOMA can be!

Beautiful Animal Sculptures By Beth Cavener Stichter

I really like the look of these savage animal sculptures by Beth Cavener Stichter.

Their rough clay finish makes the critters look as if they've just come into creation and have yet to have their forms polished and smoothed out.

They're part of her new series entitled Come Undone, a series full of raw texture and majestic natural beauty.

Falcon Helmet Cam Video Makes You Feel Like You're Flying

Falconers in Abu Dhabi have created a mini helmet cam for their falcons, so they can (almost) see through the eyes of the bird as it takes to the air, soaring free and hunting prey.

You can see a video recorded with this amazingly tiny helmet cam at the link below, it's really amazing to watch but there is a scene where the bird hunts down another bird, so it's not for the squeamish.

Harry Potter Themed Couture Dress Designs

These couture fashion design sketches were created by DeviantARTist DistantDreamer, and they're based on the four houses from Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter series.

They look surprisingly wearable, and less witchy than I'd expect from anything Harry Potter themed, although the Gryffindor dress does look something a shaman might wear out on the town.

Stop Motion Animation Created With Spreadsheets

(YouTube Link)

Creating a fluid and interesting stop motion animation can be tedious enough, but when you decide to animate via spreadsheet you're just asking for trouble!

Apparently Joe Penna, aka Mystery Guitar Man, likes tedious trouble, as he and his team converted 730 frames of video into this blocky stop motion music video.

LOST Themed Baby Nursery

This Dharma Initiative approved baby nursery will be totally LOST on the new addition to your family, but maybe they'll appreciate it when they grow up and watch the show for themselves.

There are all sorts of fun little visual elements in this nursery, including a stuffed polar bear, baby food with Dharma Initiative labels, and a cute little airplane mobile that hopefully won't crash into the sleeping baby's head.

Geeky parents have way too much fun with home decor!

F-Bomb, Sexting And Other Words Being Added To The Dictionary

The Merriam-Webster dictionary is getting some not so necessary additions, including f-bomb, sexting and brain cramp, that really define the slangy modern state of the good old English language.

These new additions are sure to vex the older generation, vindicate students involved in English class arguments, and turn future Scrabble games into a total mess.

What do you think- are the new word additions necessary or just a way to sell more dictionaries?

Fire Tire Sculptures By Gal Weinstein

These strange yet masterfully crafted sculptures are by Gal Weinstein, an Israeli artist who created the tire fires as a statement concerning pollution.

They are made out of (among other things) wool, wax and a not so eco-friendly medium-styrofoam.

Still, as works of art it's unlikely that they'll end up in a trash dump anytime soon, and the highly sculptable medium allowed Gal to add a lot of detail to these remarkable pieces.

A TARDIS Themed Delorean

This is the CARDIS- a TARDIS styled Delorean that may be the end result of Doc Brown and The Doctor meeting up somewhere in time and space.

The old "bigger on the inside" TARDIS factor would really make a difference when applied to the somewhat small interior of the Delorean, especially if the time travelling duo want to bring their companions along for the ride!

A Cityscape Made Out Of Staples

This is one cityscape where loose sheets of paper won't be blowing down the street.

It's a cityscape called Ephemicropolis, and it was created by British artist Peter Root, who used over 100,000 staples in its creation.

The entire piece measures approximately 235 X 117 inches, with the "tallest" building measuring in at a whopping 4 and 3/4 inches high.

Spot The Skull In These Optical Illusion Artworks

These black and white illustrations by Istvan Orosz are masterpieces in their own right, but the fact that there is a skull hidden in each piece makes them an optical delight!

If you're having trouble finding the skull try looking at a smaller sized version of each piece and the grinning face of death should be easier to spot.

400 Chairs Assembled Into A Sine Wave

Welcome to Atlanta's Freedom Park, won't you pull up a chair and stay for a while?

This awesome feat of furniture engineering, 400 wooden chairs arranged into a sine wave formation, is called (surprise, surprise) SEAT, and it was created by Ju Lee and Brian Brush.

I wouldn't wanna be anywhere near this installation when they remove one of the chairs and it all falls down!

Kids Dressed As Famous Movie Characters

File this advertising campaign under OMG ADORBS-kids dressed up like iconic movie characters to promote the Praia de Belas cineplex in Brazil.

There's little Eddie Safety Scissorhands, Jackie Sparrow drunk on fruit punch, and a Cruelita DeVil that would rather hug the little puppies than skin them alive.

You're tugging at my heartstrings Praia de Belas!

What Futurama Characters Would Look Like In Real Life

This series of realistic renditions by Jared Krichevsky shows what those crazy aliens from Futurama might look like in real life, and they're downright scary!

Jared even managed to make mild mannered Kif look rather repulsive, and I used to think Nibbler looked cute and cuddly...now I'm not so sure...

Coloso Wants To Share His Power With You

This is Coloso, and he's a massive electrical tower shaped like a robot that was created by art collective Doma for the Tecnopolis 2012 exhibition in Argentina.

He looks friendly enough, but if you try to give him a hug you'll get a shocking surprise!

Donkey Kong Was Only The Beginning...

dr.whodonkeykong

Digital artist Julien Bazinet has taken the classic arcade game Donkey Kong and recast it with some of pop culture's most beloved characters, creating simulated screens for an out of this world platformer.

Villains like Bane, the Xenomorph Queen and Cookie Monster?! await the hero at the top of the screen in these pixel-tastic homages to retro gaming.

Man, I wish somebody would make these into levels in a real Donkey Kong mod!

A Modern Take On The Classic Lava Lamp

Designer Merve Kahraman has created an updated version of the classic Lava Lamp, and this time the wax is flowing fluid-free.

He calls it the Revitalizer, and it looks like a big old waxy mess in the making!

Wax heated by a high voltage bulb up top drips into the cup below, and when the whole thing is melted down, you can take it out of the cup and start all over again.
