Seth Rogen Testifies Before Senate About Alzheimer's Research

(Video Link)

When you think of who you want speaking at the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services hearing on Alzheimer's Research comedian Seth Rogen may not be the first name that comes to mind, but as this C-SPAN video shows Seth is the right guy for the job.

Seth breaks the ice with a signature stoner joke that has the normally stoic crowd cracking up, but when he gets into the specifics of why he's fighting for Alzheimer's funding (because his mother-in-law has early onset Alzheimer's), and how his charity organization Hilarity for Charity is working hard to fund research into the uncurable and unstoppable disease, Seth seems like the natural choice for leader of this noble cause.

Mashup Of Hitchcock's Original Psycho And Van Sant's Remake

(Video Link)

Psycho changed the way audiences saw movies back in 1960, which is exactly what Hitchcock was going for according to the recent biopic, but that same kind of revolutionary response proved to be too much for Gus Van Sant to hope for with his 1998 remake.

But what happens when the two films are combined, classic and panned remake coming together in a surreal feature-length mashup? Steven Soderbergh decided to address that question with his hybrid horrorfest called Psychos, which you can watch here.

Soderbergh's version bounces between the two films, with the occasional superimposed stacking of the two for artistic appeal, and he posted it to his site Extension 765 with the explanation “This post comes from a place of ‘total affection, openness, and honey bought directly from a beekeeper.’”

Classic Paintings Of London Superimposed Over Modern Photos

It’s easy to forget that most classical landscape (and cityscape) paintings were based on real life locations, and it can be hard to place the exact location in question when you’re viewing a work of art from inside the sterile walls of an art gallery.

But when the painting is superimposed over a modern day photo of the scene it all falls into place, and both art and history come to life in a way that's hard to imagine otherwise.

London based redditor shystone has been hard at work revealing the modern day locations featured in classical paintings from the 18th and 19th century, showing us around old London town through the eyes of Canaletto, Logsdail and Nebot.

Talented 4 Year Old Creates Dresses Made Out Of Paper

Most 4 year olds love to play, do arts and crafts and spend their days letting their imaginations run wild, but it’s safe to say that the girl they call Mayhem is unlike other 4 year olds, mainly because she already has a career in fashion design picked out for herself.

But Mayhem can’t use a sewing machine or needle just yet, so she creates her fabulous dresses out of paper. Some are original designs, others are based on dresses she saw in photos and on TV, all are incredibly detailed and quite wearable considering the inflexible medium.

Mommy Shorts interviewed Mayhem's mother Angie about the fun fashion crafting they've been doing together, creating very wearable outfits out of construction paper, tissue paper, gift wrap and any other kind of paper product they can find around the house.

You can see more of Mayhem's fabulous designs at her Instagram account and website Fashion By Mayhem, and I hope the fashion houses are paying attention because this girl is really going places in the world of fashion design!

Animated Short - Batman Versus The Terminator

(Video Link)

With all the comic book crossovers that have occurred, many of which have involved Batman or one of his extended Bat-family, it’s hard to believe that SkyNet never sent a killer android to Gotham City. Batman squared off against the Predator, and the Xenomorphs from Aliens, but never faced the Terminator in combat- until now.

Animators Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond have brought our bat shaped crossover dreams to life with this slick looking short appropriately entitled “Batman versus The Terminator”. 

The style is suitably dark and gothic, and the character designs are so cool Batfans will be pleasantly surprised by what they were able to accomplish in a five minute long film.

Rizzo's smartphone must be as big, or bigger, than his whole body- how does he carry that thing around with him?

Illustrator Imagines Animals As Quirky Humans

If animals became bipedal, anthropomorphic members of what was originally a purely human society they would probably be extremely quirky individuals, prone to chasing cars, licking themselves in public and chewing on everything in sight.

Since genetic hybrids have yet to become a reality we have to settle for imagining what human-animal hybrids would look like, but if your imagination machine is out of order then leave the imagining to illustrator Helena Frank.

Her fun illustrations feature hybrids that look like humans wearing realistic animal mascot costumes, with big fuzzy heads making appropriately animalistic faces and generally looking a bit strange set upon humanistic bodies.

The Oral History Of SpongeBob SquarePants

The seminal cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants is now in its fifteenth year on the air, and whether you love the pineapple dwelling strangeoid or cringe at the sight of his stupid face you have to agree there’s something iconic about that undersea wearer of square pants.

But before Stephen Hillenburg's absorbent series hit the small screen SpongeBob, and all the people and places that reside in Bikini Bottom, went through years of development and reworking until Spongeboy became the Bob we know and (some) love today.

Cartoon fans, budding animators and chroniclers of all things Nick will love this 36,000-word oral history of SpongeBob SquarePants, compiled by Tom Heintjes, which is the most comprehensive history of SpongeBob ever published.

The Simple Joy Of Fitting Things Into Things

There’s something very satisfying about discovering that something fits into something else, like fitting two shoes together, one inside the other, so they only take up one slot in your shoe rack, nesting bowls together perfectly in the cupboard, and figuring out that an orange fits perfectly in the space left inside an avocado after you pull out the pit.

A Tumblr called Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things explores the sheer delight we humans feel when we discover that things fit together so perfectly, and may inspire you to take a good, hard look around your house for things you can fit into other things. It’s not OCD, it’s the best way to save space!

Amazing Brick Sculptures By Brad Spencer

Sculpting with hard mediums such as marble and stone requires hammer and chisel and lots of sanding, but creating soft, human forms out of red bricks seems so ridiculously difficult it’s a wonder sculptor Brad Spencer is able to create such amazing works with the stiff yet crumbly ceramic material.

Brad’s brick sculptures really capture the look and feeling of children climbing around on a brick wall, kids whose bodies are seemingly turning into brick as they play, complete with mortar seams that run through their bodies as they run through the wall.

Brad creates sculptures of all kind out of brick, from free standing sculptures to walls with reliefs sculpted into them, and for some reason people just feel safer with Brad's sculptures hanging around their property!

Unusual Fashion Photography By Madame Peripetie

Fashion photography is supposed to show off the clothing, evoke a feeling about the ensemble and try to sell the viewer on some aspect of the designer’s image, whether real or make believe.

Madame Peripetie's approaches these ideals with a sense of avant garde experimentalism and freedom from the ordinary that probably appeals to the fashion forward, but not so much to the more uptight designers who just want to showcase their clothes.

The images are interesting to look at to say the least, and unlike most fashion photos the clothes take a back seat to the overall visual impact of each shot.

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

Katsucon 2014 is a fandom convention that started out being primarily about anime and has blown up to encompass all aspects of pop culture, primarily anime and video games.

Katsucon recently took place in National Harbor, Maryland and we’ve got the videos to prove it. These high quality overview videos were created by YouTuber beatdownboogie, and they showcase some of the best cosplayers in attendance, and generally make free range geeks look all dramatic and cinematic to a slick soundtrack.

Of particular note are the Iron Man Mystery Machine, the spot on Nights Into Dreams costume and the awesome little Doctor Who kid driving around in a K-9 mobile.

The Talking Angela Controversy- Real Threat Or Hoax?

There’s a strange little app out there called Talking Angela that has parents acting paranoid, kids running scared and online commentors going crazy spreading misinformation and fear about a harmless app.

Talking Angela is an app that stars a talking fox named Angela who asks you far too many personal questions, and supposedly spies on you through your webcam. Parents got understandably upset when Angela started asking their kids for their names, present locations and saying strange things like "You have been a naughty girl and you must be punished" or "My tongue likes action too ;-)", odd statements which can be construed as sexual messages.

But is Talking Angela safe? A posse of paranoid parents say no, and won't be taking the risk again, but you should read on about the Talking Angela app and decide for yourself.

Hand Stitched Pixel Art Versions Of Urban Landscapes

Hand stitched embroidery art has gone from traditional to ultra modern, from pretty flowers and basic lettering to pixilated landscapes and video game characters, and Michelle Hamer is one of those cutting edge stitchsters changing the way we think of needlearts.

Michelle’s embroidery focuses on cityscapes, and in particular the textual elements such as signs and billboards found in the urban jungle. But her billboards feature enlightening slogans like "Only a little bit dead" and "Blame and punish the individual", definitely not the kind of slogan embroidery artists once sewed onto samplers.

Freezing Japanese Man Turns Into A Turkey

Japanese blogger Mr. Sebuyama of Omocoro.com claims that his transformation into a turkey started because he can't afford to buy warm clothes, which forced him to figure out a way to make the most out of wearing nothing but a pink sweater, but I'm pretty sure Mr. Sebuyama has been a turkey since birth.

Once the wildman completed his transformation into comfy, cozy turkey he took to the streets to show off his slightly disturbing new look, which even the pigeons find off-putting, and in the midst of field testing Mr. Sebuyama realized that once you go full turkey you can't go home again.

The Most Interesting German Supermarket Commercial In The World

(Video Link)

Most American supermarket commercials push convenience, lowest prices, and freshest product, occasionally resorting to acting all hip and tech savvy in order to appeal to the younger generation.

German supermarket chain EDEKA chose to take the most interesting man route when they created this crazy ad, casting musician Friedrich Liechtenstein as the silver maned star of surreal fine dining.

He bathes in milk, steals some poor lady's croissants, and generally rocks the supermarket aisles with mad swagger as he keeps it Supergeil.

Wonder what he's singing about? Check out the full translation of the lyrics here.

Turkish Car Insurance Ad Starring Street Fighter Ryu

(Video Link)

Car insurance exists because accidents happen, and when you live in a town that hosts street fighting tournaments there’s even more risk of something bad happening to your automobile.

Turkish auto insurance company Anadolu Sigorta wants you to know that you can rely on them to help you pick up the pieces of your wrecked car, even if the cause of the destruction is a fiery attack by Street Fighter video game star Ryu as he tries to pick up some bonus points by smashing your car to bits.

Animal Shaming Finally Makes Its Way To The Chicken Coop

It all started with dogs, then we were treated to cat, hamster and rabbit versions, and now the animal menagerie has been completed thanks to the arrival of chicken shaming.

Technically it’s chicken and rooster shaming, and judging by the list of crimes the roosters really deserve shaming much more than those poor little egg laying hens, but since they're all birds of a feather they all get shamed together.

The public poultry shaming phenomenon was started by artist Amy L. Rawson, and she's happy to include pics from fellow poultry shamers on her website if they send the images her way, with an open submission policy that even includes turkeys.

Playful Street Art By Fra.Biancoshock

Street artist Fra.Biancoshock insists that his works are not to be defined as street art, but they are displayed in public, (some) make a political statement, and they embody the DIY aesthetic of street art so let’s just leave it in that category.

Fra. refers to his works as “ephemeral experiences” which, as you can see from the still images of Fra's fleeting public artworks, means delightful to come across in a crowded city, extremely creative and occasionally politically oriented.

Fra.Biancoshock’s works can be found all over Europe, but when the lucky viewer discovers one of his pieces they’d better snap a pic quick, because it probably won’t be there for long.

Wayne White Attends Pow Wow Hawaii 2014

(Video Link)

Wayne White is a legendary artist, puppeteer, designer and one of my personal heroes. He designed the set and created the iconic puppets that populated Pee Wee’s Playhouse, he was the art director for Peter Gabriel’s iconic music video for “Big Time”, and the Smashing Pumpkins video for “Tonight, Tonight”, and he’s worked in so many mediums the guy should have his own wing in MoMA.

Wayne’s latest adventure involves a trip to Hawaii for Pow Wow 2014, the Honolulu street art festival, but he felt that his aerosol painting skills weren't up to snuff so he contributed to the artistic cause in a very different way- by creating some totally wild looking Cubist inspired mascot heads that are guaranteed to make the wearer look much more attractive after they've been taken off!

Metal Objects Covered With Intricate Embroidery

Metal objects that have been sitting outside for a while tend to get pitted, rusty and full of holes, and soon becomes a useless artifact.

Artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė has figured out a very interesting way to give new life to these otherwise useless metal objects- she embroiders delicate flower designs into them, bringing the soft arts and hard metal together in a delightfully colorful manner.

The Lithuanian artist was inspired to create these unconventionally traditional embroidered works by her country's rich craft history, using traditional floral motifs on mostly weathered metal objects and rendering these objects useless for anything but artistic enjoyment.

Arizona Town Is Overrun By Roving Packs Of Chihuahuas

Chihuahuas may seem like a relatively harmless breed of ankle biter, but ask the residents of Maryvale, Arizona what happens when a bunch of yappy little Chihuahuas team up and they'll tell you it's a doggone nightmare.

Maryvale has totally gone to the dogs, with packs of 10-15 wild dogs led by the pint sized masterminds running rampant in the city streets, chasing kids and causing Animal Control to receive more than 6,000 calls a year, but Animal Control says they lack the manpower to patrol the streets and residents now feel like the canine gangs have won.

Looks like a good time to get the Taco Bell Chihuahua out of retirement, maybe he can bring these ruffian bands under control with the rousing battle cry "Yo quiero Taco Bell!"

The Mystery Of The Codex Seraphinianus

The Codex Seraphinianus is a surreal illustrated tome which has been shrouded in mystery since its first publication in 1981.

Written by Luigi Serafini, the Codex is full of finely illustrated and totally bizarre scenes showing skeletons getting fitted for new skin, a mother and child wearing strange fish costumes, a horse-insect hybrid, fantastic machines, scenes of people using psychic powers, and much more.

Luigi even made up his own language to accompany these illustrations, and the language has yet to be fully understood. The author claims that the script has absolutely no meaning despite code breaker and linguist James M. Duyer's assertion that he has almost completely decyphered the strange language/code.

To add even more WTF factor to the Codex Seraphinianus story- Luigi claims to have been told what to draw and write by a psychic cat that accompanied him as he put the book together in Rome during the 1970s.

Junk Mail Made IrresistibleTo Cats With Catnip

(Video Link)

To get a resident to pay attention to your direct mail you use bright colors, bold logos and slick, tactile cardstock, and even then most pieces are bound to get thrown away without much more than a glance.

But if you want a cat to pay attention to your mail simply apply catnip and watch the feline recipients go wild.

The Bulk Cat Litter Warehouse in Ontario came up with the idea to add catnip concentrate to the paper used to print their ads, and their plan worked almost too well, as the frisky kittys got their paws on the mailers and went crazy.

Photo Series Of Tiny LEGOgrapher's Trip Around The World

The LEGOgrapher sees the world from a uniquely tiny perspective, but seeing him unafraid to explore, to climb for the best shot, feels remarkably humanistic for a little plastic person.

LEGOgrapher is the brainchild of photographer Andrew Whyte, and he captures these fun and interesting shots with his smartphone as he travels around the UK and the world with the little LEGOgrapher in his pocket, shooting a pic a day for 365 days.

The shallow depth of field makes the viewer feel properly detached from the massive human world, and there are some nice textures and colors present that give the pics a vibrant liveliness.
