Fantasy Style Marvel Superheroes



The superheroes, and villains, from the Marvel Comics universe look extra super in fantasy garb.

They were digitally re-designed by DeviantARTist theDURRRRIAN, who's clearly pushing for his own line of action figures!

Elders React To Dubstep


(YouTube Link)

This might be the most important video you'll ever see regarding dubstep music, and it proves that you're never too old to have good taste in music.

Watch as elders are subjected to Skrillex before sharing their opinions and point of view with the world.

Spoiler alert - some of them actually enjoy dubstep!

A Lamp Shade That Projects The Night Sky Onto The Ceiling



This astronomically awesome lamp shade casts the night sky across the ceiling, in case you can't go outside and see it all for yourself.

Created with the serious star gazer in mind, this piece was hand crafted by artist Anna Farkas and contains every major star, with a few thrown in for good measure and a constellation cheat sheet on the underside.

Sadly, this is an art piece and not something destined for production, so you'll just have to dream about the stars appearing on your ceiling via lampshade.

Or, better yet, grab a drill and an astronomy book and start drilling one of your own!

The New Look Of Chuck E. Cheese



Chuck E. Cheese, beloved icon of animatronic rock band pizzatainment, has been killed and replaced with the ratty little rocker you see before you.

Childhood is now dead and rolling in it's little plastic coffin, and token flavored pizza will never taste the same again.

How are they going to make a mascot costume for this guy, are they gonna throw a ratty head on some hairy scenester who doesn't get enough sun?

Or are they just going to beam him into the establishments via hologram? Maybe he's starting a new band with Tupac...

The Crooked House Of Poland



Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your computer monitor, the architects who designed Krzywy Domek, the Crooked House of Sopot, Poland are just messing with your head!

This crazy warped vision of modern architecture was created in 2004 as a unique and magical place to shop, and the fun doesn't stop when you walk through the door because the interior is just as kooky as the exterior.

Animated Music Video - Robo-Redneck


(YouTube Link)

Mike Judge is back, and this time he's directing the animated music video for Zac Brown Band's song The Wind.

The short is called "Robo-Redneck", so you know what you're in for-a kooky little cartoon full of Mike Judge's signature humor and a scifi spoof set in the deep south.

Git'er done, Robo-Redneck!

Vintage Chinese Firecracker Label Art



The delightful artwork found on these vintage Chinese firecracker labels almost makes the contents seem even more fun, but that's impossible right? More fun than fireworks, no way!

Now that I think about it some of these labels are a bit scary, so maybe the art is meant to serve as a warning against playing around with fireworks, like "be careful so you don't end up like the poor sap on this label."

Hit the link below to check out a massive Flickr gallery with over 300 beautiful examples of Chinese firecracker labels, they're really neat!

Puppet Neil Gaiman And Alan Moore Talk About Before Watchmen


(YouTube Link)

Alan Moore doesn't appear to be very cuddly in real life, despite the ursine beard.

Neil Gaiman seems a bit cuddlier, but his Jesus and Mary Chain style and dark wit cast him in a mysterious light.

But both guys look adorable, and quite cuddly, as puppets!

Let's play pretend time and imagine that their discussion about Before Watchmen is as nice as the one taking place in this video.

(Barely NSFW due to one word)

Pencil Vs. Camera Process Video


(YouTube Link)

This interesting process video shows how artist and photographer Ben Heine creates his surreal Pencil Vs. Camera series, one torn sheet of paper and a subject at a time.

It's an interesting look at how Ben's videos and illustrations comes together, but the video makes the entire process look a bit too easy!

Dreamlike Paintings By Kent Williams



Kent Williams has long been one of my top ten favorite artists, and his uniquely styled paintings have graced both the covers of comic books and the walls of fine art galleries across the globe.

His latest series is full of surreal, dreamlike imagery surrounded by painterly strokework and a sort of deconstruction that makes the whole scene feel even more real.

Hit either of the links below if you want to see the stuff dreams are made of....

Ultimate Fireworks Fail Compilation


(YouTube Link)

Let us close out the celebration of America's birthday with a compilation video containing explosive examples of stupid humans playing with fireworks.

A firework fail is best observed via video, mostly because you don't have to worry about taking someone to the hospital or cleaning up afterwards.

(Barely NSFW due to language at the end of the video)

The Thief Who Stole A Dali Then Sent It Back



A brazen art thief recently stole Cartel de Don Juan Tenorio by Salvador Dali, valued at over $150k, from the Venus Over Manhattan Gallery in New York by distracting the guard and walking out with the piece in broad daylight. Then he sent it back.

The gallery put the word out about the thief, but didn't expect to get the work back, until they received an anonymous email saying it had been sent back, and it was delivered to the gallery later that week via Express Mail.

Why would someone do such a thing? Your guess is as good as mine...

Awesome Animated Short - Bizarro Classic


(YouTube Link)

This superpowered animated short is called Bizarro Classic, and it was created by Disney animator Robb Pratt as a follow up to his short Superman Classic.

I loved the style, the animation was top notch, I only wish this short was a bit longer because it left me wanting more!

Zombie Targets That Really Bleed



If you want to get the feel of actually shooting a zombie and watching him spring a leak without harming living humans then check out these grisly bleeding zombie targets from Zombie Industries.

Created with a sense of realism, and a morbid curiosity, in mind these ugly little buggers are just begging to be pumped full of buckshot, and may be enough to deter a zombie attack if placed around your property.

Guaranteed to creep out your in-laws and most door-to-door salesmen.

A Hot Air Balloon Shaped Like Darth Vader



This custom Sith Lord shaped hot air balloon is still casting the shadow of the Dark Side across the globe, flying high since 2007.

It was custom made for (surprise!) a huge Star Wars fan from the UK, who actually got approval from the crew at LucasFilm before making this beautiful hot air balloon.

The sweetest part about this custom balloon has to be the attention to detail, making the Sith Lord's helmet easily discernible from miles away.

Watch Danger 5, But Beware Of Nazi Dinosaurs


(YouTube Link)

Danger 5 is one of the funniest, if not THE funniest, show to hit the airwaves since (insert title of your favorite funny show here)!

It's full of comedic action, dramatic comedic action, suspense filled action dramedy, and NAZI DINOSAURS!

The only Danger viewers will encounter when watching Danger 5 is the danger of running out of episodes to watch!

Your first episode, which happens to be the second episode of the first season, is on the house! Exclamation!

This Hummer Has A Little Too Much Firepower



This way too heavily armed Black Knight Hummer H2 is the most extreme act of vehicular overcompensation I've ever seen on the interwebs.

Bristling with guns and bad attitude, this Hummer screams "get the hell outta my way!" while the driver holds himself and cries "love me, want me, hug me!" to a world hung up on outward appearance.

SRSLY, this thing is armed to the teeth, with a fierce fantasy paint job to match. Hit the link if you want to see the full list of on-board weapons and watch this wicked vehicular weapon let some rounds fly!

Fireworks Safety PSA From The Early 90s


(YouTube Link)

This PSA from the early 90s was made by the Office of the California State Fire Marshal to warn kids about how dangerous it is to play with fireworks.

The ad has some terrible dialog and the overall cheese factor you've come to expect from retro PSAs, but the superhero star of the ad known as The Preventor has a pretty sweet costume!

The Underwater Sculptures Of Jason DeCaires Taylor



Jason DeCaires Taylor is an eco-sculptor, an artist who has found a way to make his sculptures meld seamlessly with the natural world.

His works become one with nature and even support life, as demonstrated by the ring of sculptures shown above which now serve as habitats for coral and aquatic critters who fancy a human of their very own to call home.

Street Art Style Advertising For Pest Control



These clever street art style installations were created by TBWA Hunt Lascaris Johannesburg as a fun way to advertise pest control sprays by letting people see the insects living inside the walls.

Mini furniture and real dead cockroaches were used to created comical dioramas of roaches living the good life, the idea being that the roach fogger can reach into the cracks in the walls and kill those happy little roach families where they live.

I've never felt so bad for a bunch of cockroaches in my life!

Ride A Bike, Shorten Your Prison Sentence



Inmates at  the Santa Rita do Sapucai prison in Brazil are being offered a deal too good to pass up-put in 16 hours on a bicycle and get a day knocked off your sentence.

It's an interesting way to encourage prisoners to cooperate and literally work towards their freedom, and the stationary bikes are being used to charge batteries which are then taken into the city and used to power streetlights.

Sounds like a great way to stay in shape, give back to society and whittle your sentence down while biking.

Meet The Pyro From Team Fortress 2


(YouTube Link)

Man, the Pyro character class from the video game Team Fortress 2 is one sick puppy.

Seeing the world through his eyes is like taking an acid trip through Candyland, too bad his foes don't see things the way he does!

Watch this fiery personality burn a path through the competition in this awesome animated short.

Vintage TV Commercial For Atari


(YouTube Link)

Talk about gnarly to the max! This totally rad Atari commercial from the 80s has it all-a beach, a boombox, and babes galore!

Oh, and there's the bit about totally tubular old games like Ms. Pac-Man, Vanguard, Centipede and Galaxian.

Man, I totally wish I could just take my Atari console to the beach with me and plug it in anywhere, that would be totally bodacious!

Hand Knit Monster Masks



Tracy Widdess has named her strange hand knit monster mask series Brutal Knitting, and they put the ITT in knitting!

They're full of monstrous details and ghoulish charm that only a mother could love, and when worn they will deter people from standing too close to you.

If you like them and want them for your very own, you can visit Tracy's Etsy shop and show the world how you really feel inside. I feel pretty...

Josh Atlas And His Strange Sweet Tooth



Artist Josh Atlas clearly has a thing for the sugary side of life, and he expresses his love for the sweet stuff through sculptures and drawings that look decidedly less delicious than the real thing.

His strange works are like cautionary tales against eating sweets just before bed, and they've put me off of donuts and ice cream for the time being!
