Humorous Street Art Installations By Leon Reid IV

Brooklyn's own Leon Reid IV brings the funny to the city streets with his tongue in cheek public artworks.

This is the kind of street art guaranteed to brighten your day.

A melting newspaper box, George Washington dressed up like a tourist, and walking street signs that look like they're ready to follow you around town are just a few examples of Leon's works featured in this gallery at Beautiful/Decay.

The Necronombox Custom Sculpted Boombox

This Necronomicon inspired boom box was made by Josh Marlar, and it may make your party guests a bit squeamish when you bust it out for an impromptu late night karaoke session in the kitchen.

It uses a Lil'G Mini Boombox as the basic structure, then Josh sculpted the horrifying features out of Sculpey.

The eyes are made out of marble, and the rest of the magic comes from the shiny paint job.

Personally, I don't like they way those weird little eyes are looking at me, it's like they're hungry for the other white meat.....human!

Celebrities Once Again Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

(YouTube Link)

This star studded celebrity comedy video is the second in the Jimmy Kimmel Live series, in which celebrities muster up their nerves and read some just plain awful tweets about themselves.

It's funny in an uncomfortable kind of way, and I must say these celebs handle the scathing remarks much better than I would!

How Long Would It Take A Guinea Pig To Mow Your Lawn?

Have you ever wondered how long it would take your pet guinea pig to mow the lawn?

Me neither, but now that I think about it having an army of guinea pigs mow my lawn every day would be pretty freakin' cute, that is until the hawks and crows move in for an all-you-can-eat buffet.

For my lawn it would take 8 guinea pigs all day to mow that sucker down, choose your animal and find out how long it will take them to clean up your yard for you at the link below.

Short Film - The King & The Worst

(YouTube Link)

The King & The Worst is a short film set during World War II, and centers around Jack Kirby and Ed Wood battling an even sorcerer.

King & Worst is a strange little film, but I had fun watching it and I hope they're setting up for a sequel!

It's subtitled in English, so I apologize in advance if you don't enjoy light reading with your movie.

This Floor Is Flat

This tripped out floor illusion was discovered in a Paris video game store, and is probably used as a deterrent against drunken shoppers!

I would have to repeat the mantra "this floor is flat" when walking around this store, or else my vertigo might kick in and send me to the ground reeling with dizziness...

A Composite Sketch Of Count Dracula

The composite sketch above is by Brian Joseph Davis, who utilized police sketch software to give us an idea of what Count Dracula, the fictional character from Bram Stoker's Dracula, should have looked like.

I must admit that this is one of the most unusual, and original, takes on Dracula I've ever seen.

Maybe they should reboot the Dracula movie and set it in the deep south?

Nightwing Fan Film Brings The Goods Without The Bat

(YouTube Link)

Batman sidekick turned badass with a bad attitude Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing, is the star of this fan made short film by Jeremy Le & Danny Shepherd.

Overall I enjoyed watching this short, it had good directing, nice visual effects and excellent costuming, but the bad acting did make some scenes feel a bit cheesy.

Still, I wouldn't mind seeing more of these shorts, and I've always wanted to see DC use Nightwing more in their screen adaptations.

Animated Short - Olympic Vermin

(Vimeo Link)

Amael Isnard and Leo Bridle are animators from London who are gearing up for the 2012 Olympics by making silly animated shorts about local wildlife carrying a torch of their own.

I like the simple and flat look of the critter characters, and compositing the animation over live action video was a nice touch.

Looks like even the squirrels and pigeons are excited about the upcoming Olympic games!

TARDIS Shed Guarded By A Dalek

What's the best way to protect the stuff crammed into your garden shed? Post a friendly Dalek out front and watch trespassers get the extermination they deserve.

This Doctor Who approved TARDIS shed and Dalek statue were created by Einstein19, who created these fun backyard additions a decade ago and finally decided to share them with the rest of the interwebs!

I wonder if this shed is as big as a two car garage on the inside?

The Creepiest Way To Store A Loved One's Remains

If you want to freak your family out for the rest of their natural lives then you gotta get your hands on one of these creepy bust urns before you kick the bucket and write it into your will!

Created by Cremation Solutions to look like the spitting image of the guy or gal whose ashes are inside, this is one scary way for your ashes to spend eternity!

Imagine finding one of these suckers at a yard sale in 2112- "What the heck is this?!"

"Primitive sculptural display urn, apparently he wanted to be remembered for being rather ugly...."

"I'll give you twelve Drekmars for it!"

Large Sculptures Made Of Rolled Up Magazines

The title of this article definitely describes how these paper sculptures by Yunwoo Choi were made, but these are more than just rolled up tubes of paper.

These are media honeycombs, wispy clouds of waste paper, gossip rags turned into sacred shrouds.

They are as compelling to look at, to pick apart, as they are heavy.

Seriously, each one of these suckers must weigh hundreds of pounds!

Go! Go! Watch These Animated Power Rangers Shorts!

(YouTube Link)

These awesome, and really short, animated shorts are by Power Rangers fan Mike McCraw, and they look like the perfect way to start off a sweet new animated series!

Seriously, I wasn't a big fan of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV show (I prefer Ultraman or Guyver), but I would definitely watch an animated series drawn in this comic book style, and any show that features heroes beating up on giant monsters gets my vote!

Mike- it's been a while since your last short was posted, when are we gonna see more?!

Superheroic Representations Of Typography

This fun superhero themed graphic design series is by Matthew Olin, a guy who knows that great graphic design comes with great responsibility, namely the fact that his works must be pleasing to the eye.

Matthew's designs are capitalizing on a recent trend, as nothing says pleasing to the geeky masses like superhero themed artwork, and likening heroes to different types of typography is an even more appealing idea!

This Guy's Room Is Like A Time Capsule From The 90s

(YouTube Link)

Taking a trip around YouTuber PauseDa90s bedroom is like travelling back in time, when the pants were Cross Colours, slap bracelets were all the rage, and Zac Morris and the gang were Saved By The Bell.

It's enough to make me wish I'd never thrown out some of my "vintage" goodies from the 90s, but what's with the random mini diskettes hanging around without an old IBM 486 PC to use them on?

(NSFW due to language- just watch it without the sound because the guy is obnoxious!)

This Big Red Bus Does Push Ups

Czech artist David Cerny has come up with a fun way for this big red double decker bus to stay in shape- he gave it arms so it can do push ups!

The push up bus is going to serve as an ambassador of sorts for the Czech people, because it will be set up outside the Czech Olympic headquarters during the 2012 London Olympics.

Go Big Red Bus!

This Picture Is Worth A Thousand Calories

Cocoagraph is a Philadelphia based company that sells a rather unique confection- edible chocolate photographs available in four flavors all ready to print and eat.

I'm not sure why you would want to eat a photo, but the Cocoagraph seems like a fun gift, and the act of eating a photo bar makes for a great photo opp.

Fly Fashion Ads From The 1970s

These fashion ads from 1970s feature an array of styles and garments no one should be caught dead wearing in public, unless you're attending a Halloween party or Player's Ball.

From fly pimp daddy furry coats to patchwork pants and jumpsuits, people sure had strange taste in clothing back in the day!

Meet The Kissenger - A Kiss Messaging Device

This strange little egg shaped device with lips is called the Kissenger, and it's supposed to somehow make being alone in the world feel a little more bearable.

You might be asking yourself- how does this creepy looking thing make someone feel anything but sheer horror?

The answer is- by giving you a big old kiss, of course!

The Kissenger allows you to send and receive kisses via pressure sensitive lips and an internet connection, just don't let anybody see you kissing this thing or you may find yourself even more alone than you were before!

Surreal And Spacy Illustrations By Raccoon Nook

Illustrator Raccoon Nook has blended styles so seamlessly that he has hit upon a style all his own.

With anime, magazine illustration and graffiti influences evident in his works, Raccoon's work supercedes them all without sacrificing that all important eyeball appeal.

I get lost in his works just trying to figure out what the heck is going on, meaning they each have a unique and interesting story to tell that is sure to keep me wanting to see more!

Pulp Novel Covers Based On Marvel Superheroes

These fun, pulp novel inspired cover designs are by an artist named Calamity Jon, a guy with a silly name who has designed some seriously stylish covers!

A Marvel comics series set in a pulp/noir styled universe would be rather fun to read, but might not make for top sales considering it wouldn't be as good without a mature rating.

Colin Mochrie Loves His Star Wars Toys

(YouTube Link)

Colin Mochrie is a comedian, Whose Line Is It Anyway alumnus, and an avid Star Wars toy enthusiast, at least according to this video which shows him re-enacting scenes from Star Wars with a bunch of toys.

Watch this video and you'll see that a grown man can become a silly little kid again at the drop of a hat when he gets his hands on his favorite toys.

Olympic Structure Which Can Be Played Like A Musical Instrument

This awesomely abstract piece of structural art is called the Coca-Cola Beatbox, and it can be played like a musical instrument by visitors who come into contact with its crystalline walls.

Here's how it works:
The Coca-Cola Beatbox, as its called, was designed by Asif Khan and Pernilla Ohrstedt and is made up of over 200 "interlocked translucent air cushions, each the size of a billboard." Those air cushions contain different sounds—which include athletes' heartbeats, shoes squeaking and arrows hitting a target—and will be triggered by people walking in and out of the Beatbox through gestures and movement.

Advertising gimmick or not, this is a pretty cool idea that's guaranteed to add a bit of color to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Woman Had A Pen In Her Stomach For 25 Years

It's a story you hear every day- woman goes in to see her doctor due to rapid weight loss, and an x ray reveals that she's had a felt tip pen stuck in her stomach for the last 25 years.

Here's more:
On subsequent questioning, she recalled unintentionally swallowing a pen 25 years earlier. While she was interrogating a spot on her tonsil with the pen she slipped, fell and swallowed the pen by mistake. Her husband and general practitioner dismissed her story and plain abdominal films done at the time were reported as normal. A gastroscopy demonstrated a plastic felt-tip pen sitting in the lumen of the stomach without evidence of any gastric damage [...] The pen was still in working order (figure 2). This case highlights that plain abdominal x-rays may not identify ingested plastic objects and occasionally it may be worth believing the patient's account however unlikely it may be.

They should use this story to advertise those pens, because if it can still write after 25 years in somebody's stomach that's one heck of a quality pen!
