Fan Creates Scenes From An Earthbound Sequel That Never Was

When the classic video game Earthbound arrived in America in 1994 fans were blown away by the storyline, about a little boy saving the Earth from alien invaders, the satirical humor and the fact that Earthbound made everyday life seem like part of an epic roleplaying game.

Fans have been begging for a sequel for years, but digital artist Christopher Behr got tired of waiting, so he put together some awesome looking screenshots of what an Earthbound sequel with updated graphics might look like.

Maybe Christopher has the right idea- if you build it they will come, therefore if you put an Earthbound of your own together the game developers will have no choice but to make the game, right?.

Animated Short- Kim Jong Un Versus Christmas

(Video Link)

When western decadence threatens the celebration of the greatest North Korean holiday National Hand Stand Day, the mighty and glorious leader Kim Jung Un springs into action to save his poor people from the evil influence of Satan Claus and Christmas.

Even Rudolph Lundgren doesn’t stand a chance against the invincible North Korean benefactor, who is hell bent on pulling a reverse Santa Claus and stamping out capitalist corruption with his signature brand of fantastic adventure and daring displays of sexiness.

Can the most powerful and awe inspiring leader to ever walk the face of the earth save his special date and prove once again that he is the only one who deserves his own holiday?

Outrageous Christmas Cards By John Cessna

When John Cessna's mother told him to act like a grown up and send a Christmas card out to his family and friends back in 2008, he did what any immature grown up would do- he took pictures of himself fall down drunk and made them into Christmas cards. Now, five years later, his messed up Christmas cards have become John's very own pranky holiday tradition.

The card on top is from 2009, aka his drunken days, and the Fight Club themed card below it is the 2013 version of John's holiday madness. The card scenes may seem like pretty standard holiday fare for some, and an outrageous blasphemy against Christmas to others, but hey everybody has their own way of staying sane throughout the holiday season.

Film Noir Themed Art Series Created With Packing Tape

Sometimes artists use strange mediums simply to make a stir and raise publicity, but when an artist discovers a new medium that really works well, and looks really cool at the same time, you know they’re about to change the game.

Mark Khaisman is one of those innovative artists, and his latest series of Film Noir themed works are quite a breath of fresh air. Mark creates the signature look of his "drawings" by applying translucent duct tape to acrylic panels which are mounted on lightboxes, thereby creating shadows, highlights and linework as the light shines through layers of tape.

We first featured Mark back in 2008 (Link), and since then his works have evolved quite a bit- his portraits have become more detailed and his style more visually striking. However, these packing tape "drawings" have to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.

Vintage Advert Featuring Jimi Hendrix Dressed As Santa Claus

All that Purple Haze must have gone to Jimi Hendrix’s head when he agreed to pose for this advertisement dressed as Santa Claus back in 1967, but I guess he was so used to living in an Electric Ladyland that he didn’t mind dressing as Bold As Love in order to sell a few more copies of his album.

This cover shot comes from the December 23, 1967 issue of Record Mirror, and was used to promote then new release Axis: Bold As Love, which Santa Hendrix holds in his hands for all to admire.

As a bonus you can watch a performance at the link that was recorded the night before at Christmas on Earth Continued, with thirteen minutes of footage showing Jimi jamming at his prime.

Neverending Story Characters Reimagined For The 21st Century

When the NeverEnding Story debuted in 1984 viewers were utterly transported to Fantastica while watching the movie, and the characters were generally received as bigger than life yet still believable.

But as those kids who had their imagination sparked by the movie grew up, and a new generation of millennial kids raised on computer screens and technology emerged the NeverEnding story started to look a bit dated to some.

Now, thanks to artist Nicolas Francoeur, the whole epic fantasy world of Fantastica first imagined by Michael Ende has received a 21st century makeover, and things are looking dangerously good in eternal fantasyland.

A Very Fangirl Christmas Animated Music Video

(Video Link)

Ever since geek became chic the female fans have felt more empowered, more enthusiastic and free to totally geek out on their favorite pop culture franchise. Geek girls are now sporting their nerd stripes with pride, and the fangirl revolution is in full swing.

Here’s an animated music video made by a bunch of fangirls celebrating Christmas in their own, unique way- by singing about Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Lord of the Rings and other legends of pop culture that make the fangirls go squee!

The only thing this video is missing is a tribute to Robot Santa from Futurama, but since they asked our forgiveness for forgetting a few titles from fandom we’ll overlook their faux pas.

Downton Abbey Characters Dressed As Batman Villains

It’s highly doubtful that diehard fans of the decidedly British drama series Downton Abbey ever thought they’d see their favorite characters from the show dressed up to look like Batman villains, but whether you wanted to see it or not here it is, courtesy of artist Shadow Santa.

Somehow the characters seem a bit less stuffy in their Gotham villain garb, but the images are so overworked with digital brush strokes it’s hard to make out their faces. Maybe that’s how they’re meant to be- shadowy forces of evil discussing nefarious plots over a spot of tea.

Charmingly Creepy Re-Faced Realtor Ads

You’ve seen them all around town- bus benches, ads on the sides of buses, billboards and posters for realtors who are dying to sell you your next house. They’re always smiling, trying to come off as warm and personable to people who have no idea who they are or why they should be trusted at all. It turns out some of these realtors shouldn’t be trusted, at least not based on appearance alone.

Some goofball named Phil Jones has been going around Minneapolis plastering his face over the original face of the realtors in the ads, and now he’s getting more calls than he can handle! He says he has a lot of respect for the people in the ads, but I think he secretly wants to become each and every one of them.

Posters Show How To Be Polite While Riding The Tokyo Subway

In Japan society revolves around being polite, and trying not to offend anyone who might get mad and start emitting squiggly lines, spirals and exclamation points from their foreheads. The Japanese take civility very seriously, so if you’re not sure what people will find offensive the whole thing may seem a bit daunting.

Thankfully these colorful etiquette guide posters can be found in Tokyo subway stations, the easy to understand imagery showing us what not to do even if we can’t read one line of Kanji. Tips like don’t fall asleep on your neighbor, don’t play your music too loud and don’t smash people between your backpacks may seem like common sense, but some people just weren't raised in such a polite society and don't know how things go in Tokyo.

Giant Multi-Colored Slugs Invade France

Artist Florentijn Hofman likes to make big, bold statements with his oversized works, most of which are animal themed and adorable by the way. This time around his works were spotted taking to the streets and city steps in Angers, France, and people loved every minute of it! The

Slow Slugs were each made out of 40,000 plastic bags of various colors, so they’re not only appealing to the eyeballs-they’re earth friendly. The photos show the cute and colorful slugs moving slowly through the streets to the amusement of the town’s residents, and a few of the pics give us a glimpse beneath the bags to see how these amazing looking slugs were made.

Use Pawns To Save Walter White In Breaking Bad Chess

Now that Breaking Bad, aka the Chronicles of Walter “Heisenberg” White, is off the air people will have to feed the hungry fan lurking within them by watching the DVD box sets, writing fan fiction about the show, and of course buying up every bit of merch available.

Fans love the merch, but all you can find are mass produced products with run-of-the-mill designs. However, there are a few people out there with some really cool custom made Breaking Bad themed stuff, like this chess set made by Known Unknown Design and sold on Etsy.

The board sports a periodic table pattern, and the hand drawn look of the character cards makes it feel like something Walt might have made so he and Jesse could play while cooking in the RV.

Action Packed Short Film - PROXiMITY

(Video Link)

Color me impressed with many of the short films being created independently and shared online for all to see for free, they’re mighty well done! Shorts from many different genres and mediums have shown up online, and there’s so much good stuff to watch online nowadays you (almost) don’t need cable TV anymore.

Here’s an action packed short entitled PROXiMITY, which was directed, shot and edited by Ryan Connolly. The premise is your usual prisoner escaping gun toting captors storyline with a Prisoner TV show style twist, and it really feels like a great beginning for a full length action flick.

Hopefully Ryan has the same idea and is working on making PROXiMITY into a 90 minute movie, because we sure would love to see more. (Barely NSFW due to language)

Spider-Man has battled every baddie from the Green Goblin to the Juggernaut, and he seems to have no problem dispatching the baddies as long as he’s using his lightning quick reflexes, web blasters and his own two hands.

A Cartoonist And His Cat Drawn In Over 100 Different Styles

It’s safe to say illustrator Mike Holmes really loves his cat Ella, so much so that he has been drawing cartoons about their relationship in his series Mikenesses since 2011.

Mike captures moments between he and Ella which are both awkward and adorable, and occasionally involve paranormal activity, then renders them in the style of famous animators and cartoonists such as Berkeley Breathed, Chuck Jones and Gary Larson.

Some panels are text free, some feature moments of comedic gold like the Nicholas Gurewitch inspired strip where doctors tell Mike they had to put down his pig, and he replies “she was a cat”. Don't worry- it's only a comic strip, and no real harm could ever come to Ella while she's busy inspiring Mike to draw silly cartoons!

The Roast Of Good King Joffrey

Wee King Joffrey is the character everyone loves to hate in the HBO show Game Of Thrones, and our hatred for the boy King is the inspiration behind a hilarious Twitter campaign called #RoastJoffrey which was put on by the show's social media team.

People who had some scathing, and often hilarious, remarks to make about Joffrey were encouraged to send them out via tweets using the hashtag #RoastJoffrey, and as you would expect some of the tweets were R rated- as in ridiculously funny!

The two day knee slapper even spilled over onto YouTube in video form, as some of the show's cast shared their impressions of Good King Joffrey. Overall consensus- off with his head!

The Robots Are Coming- To Sell Us Insurance

(Image via Scott Beale)

Robots are built to serve mankind, so what possible use could a robotic telemarketer have but to annoy and frustrate? We all thought the robotic revolution was going to take place on the battlefields, with ray guns and cybernetically enhanced mega-tigers, but it turns out the robots plan on winning by slowly driving us mad via unsolicited calls and cagey conversations.

Reporters from TIME magazine had a rather interesting conversation with a robomarketer which refused to acknowledge that it was a robot, insisting “I am a real person!” and seeming to have hurt feelings over a question humans would answer quite easily.

Listen to the clips and judge for yourself, but if you ask me the robot revolution is already underway, and they're planning on selling us unnecessary insurance.

Sculpture Series Shows What Lies Beneath A Bear's Skin

Sculptor Deborah Simon has such a deep seated reverence for the world’s bear population that she wanted to share her love of all things bear by giving us a glimpse at what lies beneath all the fur.

Deborah’s sculptures are extremely realistic looking in both pose and facial expression, and the anatomical sections inject a sort of teddy bear feel into the whole thing that kinda makes me want to reach out and hug these big galoots! Oh, and did I mention that they're only about two feet tall?

Strange And Adorable Video That Explores Themes Of Fatherhood

(Video Link)

Photographer Michael Clinard wanted to come up with a project that involved his 2 year old daughter Tala, a project that was created simply for their own amusement and showcases how much he loves being a dad.

The result is Three Depictions Of Fatherhood, a video that truly takes the cake in terms of cuteness! Michael plays three different fictional fathers in the short, each more adorable than the last. 

Cave Daddy teaches his daughter about rockcycle safety and how to fish for her her own food. Lion Daddy shows her how to take down unsuspecting deer from the bushes, and look cute while tearing into prey. And last but not least Vampire Daddy, who teaches Tala that blood is good food and getting locked in a coffin is scary.

Photographer Showcases Texas Chrysanthemum Corsage Tradition

They say that everything is bigger in Texas, and although this expression is generally used as a crude euphemism what it really means is that Texans like their stuff large and showy. They like big cars, big hats, big bulls, big belt buckles, and really, really big chrysanthemum homecoming corsages.

These over the top corsages are the focus of photographer Nancy Newberry’s series called Mum, a series that shows guys and gals from the Lone Star State sporting their ridiculously elaborate homecoming chrysanthemum corsages, which are decorated with flowers, ribbons, charms and trinkets to create the signature multi-layered look.

Totally Edible Adventure Time Gingerbread Candy Kingdom

Anyone who watches the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time knows that the protagonists, Finn and Jake, are always saving the lives of some unfortunate citizens from the Candy Kingdom who are in peril. And yet, with all the good they do for the kingdom, even they would be banished forever if they went around chewing on the delicious looking buildings.

Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat wanted to bring Princess Bubblegum's delicious looking kingdom to life in a way that wouldn't result in banishment for Finn and Jake, so she created a sugary masterpiece she calls the Gingerbread Candy Kingdom.

The whole thing is edible, from the lickable Gumball Guardians to the fluffy cotton candy trees, and she was sweet enough to include a bunch of process photos to get our creative juices flowing.

Comedic Short Film - Life Doesn't Frighten Me

(Video Link)

Life Doesn’t Frighten Me is a comedic short film that is so darn watchable, relatable and downright likeable that it’s bound to get turned into a big budget Hollywood movie some day soon. This is a short with lots of heart, and an honesty that’s unusual to find in a film where the main character is a teenager.

It was created by Stephen Dunn, and has already won him quite a few awards in his native Canada and the U.S. Life Doesn't Frighten Me is charming and very genuine, although it sure seems like Stephen is hoping to make that leap to Hollywood production as soon as possible.

The Pneumatic Burger Delivery System

You may think you're receiving your food in a timely manner when dining at fast food restaurants, but now that this pneumatic tube burger delivery system has been introduced by C One Espresso cafe in New Zealand it seems they may be taking way too long to get that tray of fried goodness delivered to your table.

C One shoots tubes full of burgers and fries straight to the customer in a system they feel is both more efficient and more hygienic, since the food is handled less than when placed on trays by employees outside the kitchen. I can't help but think about how the old bank drive thrus can now be used to deliver burgers straight to my car.

Batman In Classic Movies - The Christmas Special

(Video Link)

Batman may seem like a super serious guy, but he just acts that way in order to strike fear into the hearts of Gotham’s evil-doers and ne’er-do-wells. In reality Batman is a real blast- he invented the Batusi, loves to surf, and he really knows how to celebrate the holidays.

Check out his guest starring roles in classic Christmas movies like A Christmas Story, The Santa Clause and It's A Wonderful Life, and watch him totally screw up Christmas scenes from such films as I Am Sam and Love Actually. It's surprising that anyone takes him seriously at all after seeing him screw up the lines in such iconic Hollywood movies! (NSFW due to language)

Ugly Sweaters Aren't Just For Christmas Anymore

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of wool, I put you on a sweater and now I look the fool. It seems ugly sweaters aren’t just for Christmas anymore, so now we have two chances a year to embarrass ourselves by wearing sweaters so hideous even Liberace wouldn’t have been caught dead in them.

Ugly Hanukkah sweater parties are sure to be a blast, where the manischewitz never stops flowing, the latkas are fried up just right, and the eight menorah candles are lit so everyone can take turns burning their ugly sweaters, freeing themselves of its curse before the new year.

The 50 Most Popular Toys From The Last 50 Years

Toys are as intrinsic to the holiday season as eggs are to the nog, and for the last fifty years toys have been a big deal in the consumer market, fueling a frenzy that results in over 30 billion toys being sold each year.

This year's hottest items seem to be a tossup between next gen gaming consoles xbox one and the ps4, but in years past kids went crazy for Zhu Zhu Pets, Furbys, Rubik's Cubes, Robosapiens, and a creepy guy named Elmo that really wanted to be tickled. Here's an illustrated list of the "most popular holiday toys from the past 50 years" by Abby Ryan, may you have a very nostalgiac and happy holidays!

The Living Shoes Of The Future

Shoes are always getting scuffed up, worn and generally beaten to heck as we wear them during our daily routines, so multidisciplinary designer and researcher Shamees Aden decided to bioengineer self-repairing and terrain-adapting shoes of the future in his series called PROTOCELLS.

He teamed up with Dr. Martin M. Hanczyc to create these shoes made out of living cells, and claims they could become a reality by 2050. They look like they’re made out of Play-Doh, or some kind of sea sponge. Let's hope these protocells don't develop a taste for human flesh, or we're all in big trouble.
