He isn't a bat, just a bit batty. His behavior doesn't make him seem like much of a man, more like a pool of bad jokes and silliness. But when it's time for bullets to start flying and things to start dying Wade is the man you're looking for. He'd be the perfect candidate to take over The Bat's job should that dark knight ever arrive, but Gotham doesn't have one restaurant that serves Mexican food, and without chimichangas or tacos Mr. Wilson can't get no work done...
Bring your geeky wardrobe back from the dead with this I AM THE NIGHT! t-shirt by Skullpy, it's way cooler than a Bat-shirt and is sure to make your fellow merc with a mouth fans guffaw with delight!
Some slashers have style, some have a way with words and a talent for frightening their prey before they go in for the kill, but Jason doesn't need all that. His style screams classic slasher, and instead of putting an ensemble together and preparing a bunch of scary tricks he's busy collecting weapons for the next kill. A simple hockey mask and some coveralls is all Mr. Voorhees needs to get the job done, but those who think his style is so last Friday the 13th should consider whether they're willing to say that to his face...
Show the world you have truly terrifying taste with this Killer t-shirt by Max58, and cut the boring clothes out of your wardrobe!
When the Hollywood powers that be inevitably decide to reboot and reimagine the Jurassic Park franchise they should consider ditching those dumb old dinosaurs and replacing them with mega sized cats instead.
As soon as cats become larger than humans, so large that people are no bigger than mice in comparison, then the world is truly in trouble.
For dinosaurs can be dazzled into submission with a particularly noisy television program, but cats aren't so easily fooled.
The Soviet Buran space shuttle program came to a grinding halt when the Iron Curtain fell in the early 90s, and as a new era of Russian freedom began another era came to a close.
The Buran came to represent the Soviet space program in many ways- it only managed to go on one automated orbital flight, more money was put into the ship's aesthetics than the actual functionality, and it was once considered extremely important but is now mothballed.
These days it’s not uncommon to see people proudly flying their freak flags, because society in general is more accepting of practices and lifestyles that used to be considered deviant.
And yet those who have embraced these freedoms aren’t exactly accepted with open arms by society, and they're often forced to live double lives, leaving their "deviancy" behind closed doors when they head out into the world.
Photographer Sandra Hoyn documented the indoor life of one such "deviant" named Dirk, a man who married his Real doll and feels he has no need of another woman so long as he has his Jenny.
It's an intimate look at the life of a man who has chosen a silicone life partner instead of one made of flesh and blood, and how this strange bond actually helps Dirk feel more normal.
Even though their princesses are extremely popular Disney is best known for their animal characters, which makes sense considering Mickey Mouse is their most famous character.
Disney feature films include an animal character whenever possible, or a full cast of critters when the story fits, but despite the fur suit they're usually anthropomorphic just like the big Mouse himself.
So what would those animals that talk like, and often act like, people look like as human type people?
A talented artist named Pugletto has taken the time to transform some of Disney's most beloved animal characters into humans, keeping the stylistic essence and personality of each character intact.
Groot is so well liked around the galaxy that wearing this shirt might make you a mighty popular person, so popular in fact that people are likely to follow you around and act as your guardian just so they can get close to the big barky guy. So think of this shirt as not only a geeky fashion statement, think of it as a way to rocket you to superfandom!
Meet interesting raccoons and become the star of your own geeky galaxy with this Wood You Believe? t-shirt by ZumWorks, dancing baby groot not included.
The Empire has taken a drastically different approach to galactic conquest ever since they joined forces with Apple- planetary residents are now converted into Apple cultists instead of kills, since they citizens are now subjugated through sales, and Force powers are used primarily to make those citizens purchase every new Apple product that is released. Lord Vader didn't like this change at first, but as soon as he was comped a new mp3 player attachment for his light saber and an eyePad for his helmet he couldn't help but be on board, because he was too busy crushing candy and posting selfies on social media to care!
Prepare yourself for an interstellar marketing campaign war with this Apple Star t-shirt by Royal Bros Art, and show the world that the Death Star was only the beginning...
It’s important to keep your head while gambling, because the last thing you want to do is lose your shirt.
Gamblers are better off betting money or goods you don’t care too much about, because when you start making those “If you lose you have to…” kind of bets a loss can become a mighty embarrassing ordeal.
A young man named Hansel Qiu (known as Hansel34 on the Reddits) placed a GPA/pushup based bet with his cousin, and the winner got to do whatever they wanted with the other one's hair.
Hansel lost by a mile, so his cousin turned him into a totally fruity fellow by shaving and coloring his head to look like a pineapple.
In the end it seems like Hansel came out on top, because he seems to be totally owning his wild and flavorful new hairstyle!
It’ll give you that Ken doll feel without the messy surgery or painful recovery, leaving you free to procreate at a future time. That is, if anyone will have you after seeing you in this suit!
These image altering suits come in Lean and Mega Muscle varieties, and while they don't come cheap (lean runs around $900, mega costs $3500) they're cheaper than undergoing radical surgery to become a living doll.
Bethesda Softworks has a pretty good sense of humor about their games, and often incorporates humorous elements into their games just to keep the whole thing from becoming a total downer.
The post-apocalyptic series Fallout, which they took over from Interplay in 2008, features a monetary system based on Bottle Caps. Players use bottle caps taken from Nuka Cola bottles as currency, a system which works in the game world because those particular caps are rare, but in the real world we’ve got caps a-plenty.
However, it took Fallout fanatic GatorMacheteJr seven years to save up 2,240 bottle caps, which he promptly sent to Bethesda as payment for a copy of Fallout 4.
Will his dedication to cap collecting pay off, or did he send off eleven pounds of heartache?
Video game companies used to rely on slick advertisements, word of mouth and, most of all, box art to sell their cartridges back in the day, and I remember being taken in by this box art time and time again as a kid.
The cover would often show the protagonist engaged in battle with something totally tough, for instance a ninja on a motorcycle fighting off a pack of panthers with his katana plus explosions, but the games rarely lived up to the cover art.
Netflix became a household name by being one of the first companies to deliver streaming video service straight to your gaming console, television and computer, ushering in the age of bingewatching.
They continue to expand the boundaries of streaming video service by creating original content and bringing our beloved shows back from the dead, but there’s also a lot of stuff that Netflix does you probably know nothing about.
As we watch their content Netflix is watching us, recording our ratings and viewing habits to deliver more precise recommendations, and they’ll soon be working with Nielsen to record viewership data and create ratings figures for streaming video.
Responding the best way they knew how artists Peter and Joan Foldes created an animated short entitled A Short Vision, which premiered on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956.
Sullivan felt this short had a very important message, so he shared it with his viewing audience after preparing them for the horror with this monologue:
“Just last week you read about the H-bomb being dropped. Now two great English writers, two very imaginative writers—I’m gonna tell you if you have youngsters in the living room tell them not to be alarmed at this ‘cause it’s a fantasy, the whole thing is animated—but two English writers, Joan and Peter Foldes, wrote a thing which they called A Short Vision in which they wondered what might happen to the animal population of the world if an H-bomb were dropped. It’s produced by George K. Arthur and I’d like you to see it. It is grim, but I think we can all stand it to realize that in war there is no winner.”
There are merry pranksters all around us, people who enjoy messing with the minds of their fellow human beings and making the world an interesting, albeit a bit chaotic, place to live.
These funsters derive pleasure from pushing our buttons or blowing our minds, and they get a kick out of knowing their pranks tripped someone up, if only for a moment.
Artist and merry prankster from Milwaukee Mark Gubin decided to mess with people flying into his fine city by painting a massive “Welcome To Cleveland" on his roof back in the 1970s, and it's still screwing with airline passengers to this day.
Here's the story behind his pranky paintjob:
According to a 1985 article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, there used to be a Northwest Airlines route from Denver to Cleveland that used Milwaukee as a layover, and the airline was obliged to pre-emptively reassure passengers via the PA system that they should not worry—the plane had not skipped the intermediate destination.
Gubin’s quotations in that article are priceless. One of them goes, “There’s not a real purpose for having this here except madness, which I tend to be pretty good at.” He also said, “It was all tongue-in-cheek, just for fun. Living in the world is not a dress rehearsal. You better have fun with it.” That’s for sure.
Jake the Dog loves to dig in to a giant pile of pancakes, in between adventures of course, but how does the voice of Jake feel about those savory sweet stacks of deliciousness?
An interviewer asked John DiMaggio, the voice over actor who gives Jake the Dog his signature grumble, how he feels about bacon pancakes, and his response was emotionally charged and utterly delightful.
Enjoying a libation or ten with friends can be fun, but the next day you're left with a heavy head and a heavy load of bottles and cans to clean up.
Depending on how much you and your friends drank the night before you might end up with hundreds of bottles bound for the recycling bin, and that thing can fill up fast when your friends are heavy drinkers.
So maybe it's time to do something else with some, if not all, of those bottles. If you're a drinker and a crafter then you should be upcycling those used booze bottles into something aesthetically pleasing and useful.
Here are ten fun projects that turn bottle trash into home decor treasure-
1. Beer Bottle Tumblers-
We'll start this list with a quick and easy project, which will ease you in to working with glass and give you something cool to drink out of. Making tumblers out of beer bottles, or most glass bottles for that matter, is simple and requires simple things like string and acetone that you probably already have sitting around the house.
Glass bottle trays can be used for cutting, serving or displaying, and they look so unique your guests are sure to wonder "how did you flatten out a bottle like that?"
Well, in order to "slump" a bottle and turn it into a flattened serving tray you'll need access to a kiln, but the rest of the process is a breeze. There is a bit of trial and error involved though, so feel free to experiment and don't use your best bottle the first time around.
Parents have drastically different reactions to their children’s choice of wardrobe, especially when it comes to teens dressing sey, and their reactions generally range from stricter rules and grounding to letting their kids dress however they’d like.
But one parent made a bold move and showed that the purr-fect way to get your teen to dress more modestly is to show her that the sexy clothes she's wearing look better on the cat.
A concerned mom didn't like the look of the crocheted crop top her daughter bought on Amazon, so she decided to take action by putting that ridiculously small top on the cat and snapping some hilarious pics.
The crocheted crop top was advertised as "one size fits all", so mom decided to help girls avoid embarrassing themselves by posting a review of the garment on Amazon, so young buyers will know what they're getting (squeezing?) into.
The rain can dampen anyone’s day, but when you’re a little squirrel without a tree nearby to provide cover you can end up all wet. That’s why squirrels don’t like to come out when it’s raining, they prefer to keep their spirits like their tails- high and dry.
So what’s a squirrel loving photographer to do when he has a tiny umbrella and a brilliant idea for an adorable photo series?
Animators have to apply some real world knowledge of anatomy to their character designs, or else viewers will be bothered by the totally unnatural way which the characters move.
Characters like Mickey Mouse and Goofy might look more humanistic, but they still retain elements of their animalistic anatomy, such as elongated skulls and metatarsals.
Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee revealed what lies beneath all that cartoon skin and muscle in his series of sculptures entitled “Animatus”, and dem bones look pretty good before they're broken into a million pieces by a falling anvil!
But even with 99 lives Contra is one tough game to beat, so when YouTubers REACT gave teens three lives and three continues to cooperatively beat Contra they eagerly stepped up to the challenge...and don't do very well at all.
Don't fret teens, I can't get past the second level of Contra without the cheat code!
Science fiction films and television shows run the technological and emotional gamut, from uplifting and full of far out tech to dismally post-apocalyptic, but there's always darkness surrounding the stars.
Those who enjoy the dark futuristic stories told by sci-fi movies, video games and TV shows usually like to share their imaginative interests with the world, and the best way to do that is with a dark sci-fi t-shirt from the NeatoShop!
And if you're fresh out of credits just make your way to the end of this post and enter to win your very own NeatoShop t-shirt.
Sci-fi franchises have created some mighty memorable characters over the years
Strange things have been happening around Chernobyl ever since the 1986 disaster, but those things generally involve nature’s reaction and adaptation to irradiation, such as trees that don’t decay and animal populations that are thriving despite being radioactive.
One wild and crazy gal has taken Chernobyl exploration to the next level, a level that would be considered pure madness by many, and thanks to the internet we get to see her madcap adventures on the YouTubes.
She goes by “Bionerd23”, and there's something about the calm and collected way she handles herself while exploring the Chernobyl region that almost makes it look like a fun destination for adventure travel.
And then you hear her geiger counter start crackling away and you're reminded of just how dangerous those adventures really are...
Video editors have one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated jobs in the entertainment industry, and the fact that most people are unaware of how important their work is to the look of a feature film leaves editors feeling like faceless nobodies.
So let’s change all that by revealing what a video editor actually does with an eye pleasing animated video by Dave Penn for Inside The Edit.
