My Little Raptor- A Series About Cute Critters Who Like To Eat Ponies

They're cute, in a flesh eating, mouth full of fangs kind of way, and they're the answer to all those who are totally over the whole Bronie trend.

The My Little Raptor series by artist Cherry Garcia shows us that just because a cartoon character has more of an edge, and likes to eat cute little ponies for lunch, doesn't mean they can't be adorable. Just don't try to give them a hug, or brush their hair, and you'll survive the encounter with your limbs intact.

I wonder what our resident My Little Pony fan John Farrier would do if his massive collection of MLP memorabilia was suddenly replaced by products featuring these carnivorous cuties?

Cute Ceramic Figurines Wearing S&M Gear

Nobody ever thinks about what cute cartoon characters do in their off time, when they’re not running around chasing each other with mallets or serving as mascots for fast food restaurants, but if you believe artist Richard Ankrom then they’re all into some pretty naughty stuff!

Richard’s sculptures are full of juxtapositions between cute and kinky, innocent and sadomasochistic, and his works somehow manage to look adorable even though most of the figures are sporting zipper mouthed gimp masks.

Looking through a collection of Richard’s works will make you wonder why the two totally contrasting themes have never been mashed up before, since his tongue-in-cheek works are playful without straying too far over to the dark side and somehow seem visually quite compatible.

Martin Scorsese's Student Film- It's Not Just You Murray!

(Video Link)

Martin Scorsese is the undisputed master of the gangster flick, responsible for such greats as Casino, Goodfellas and The Departed just to name a few, but his career seems to have brought him full circle with his latest release The Wolf of Wall Street. To illustrate his return to his good old days of student filmmaking we present It’s Not Just You, Murray!, a film he made as a student attending NYU.

The story bears certain similarities to The Wolf of Wall Street- the main character breaks the fourth wall and speaks to the audience about how he made all of his money, and the two characters seem to be a similar breed of smarmy narcissist. Enjoy this slice of New York cinema history!

The Facts About That Most Evil Of Numbers 666

It’s a number that has vexed and troubled people for generations, a triple dose of the digit between five and seven thought to bring bad luck, and possibly the devil himself, when it appears.

That number is the dreaded 666, and up until six years ago there was an area code 666 that was sent straight to numerical hell by the mostly Christian residents of Reeves, Louisiana.

But did the Reeves townies actually defeat that most evil of numbers, or will 666 forever pop up wherever three digit numbers are used? Here are eleven curious facts about the source of all evil mathematics, the number 666.

Nostalgic Short Film - FROM 1994

(Video Link)

Reminiscing about the good old days has now begun to include the early 1990s, which officially makes those of us who are over 35 feel old. However, short films which utilize the 90s as a point of reference in the life of a kid aren’t all bad, and they're often quite relatable by people of all ages.

From 1994 is a short film by Casey Warren and Danielle Krieger that isn’t really about the 90s at all, the 1994 referring to a year when the main character's mother wrote him a farewell letter. This film is simple and straightforward, yet manages to be so touching you may tear up a bit by the end, especially if you've experienced the loss of a family member. But don't worry, it's not all sappy, and it's one of the best looking indie short films we've seen in a while.

The Finest Sweded Movie Trailers Of 2013

(Video Link)

The one thing that always seems to make a movie trailer look even better is when it gets the sweded treatment, and 2013 was a very good year for both blockbuster films and sweded versions of movie trailers. From Iron Man 3 to Thor 2 to The Hunger Games Catching Fire, and every other over-the-top action title in between, here’s a recap of the year’s best sweded movie trailers brought to you by the good folks at Geeks Of Doom.

Watching these sweded trailers is like taking a bite of cheese you’ve been holding on to since last year- at first the whole thing seems a bit off, but as you surrender to the cheesy flavor you’re transported to a magical land where up is down, bad is good and people acting out scenes from movies while wearing homemade costumes are actually funny!

Cuphead Is What Video Games Would Have Looked Like In The 1930s

(Video Link)

Stylistically speaking, the retro cartoon look has been done to death in short films, artwork and various animated series, but there’s one medium which hasn’t used this rubber limbed style of animation nearly enough- our old pals the video games.

Cuphead is an indie game from developer MDHR which is going to be hand drawn and inked in the style of 1930s cartoons. In it you will play Cuphead, who runs and guns his way through wacky levels and over 30 bosses that look like they stepped straight out of your favorite old timey cartoons.  

The game already looks like a breath of fresh air in a market flooded with quirky puzzlers and hyper realistic combat simulation games, and we are eagerly awaiting its release some time in 2014.

Steve Comes To Life In This Minecraft Themed Short Film

(Video Link)

When someone says they made a live action short based on the video game Minecraft your mind probably goes straight to those block headed costumes and pixilated props you see every year at Halloween, but Benjamin Combes didn’t want to go the traditional route with his short film Pixel Passion.

Instead, he chose to imagine what main protagonist Steve would look like in real life, and how badass it would be if blood sprayed instead of pixels every time he killed a zombie.  

There are still some blocky stylistic elements, to keep the whole thing true to the game from which Ben drew inspiration, and the totally gnarly retro soundtrack by Arcade High makes the whole thing super rad to watch.

Adventure Time Meets What Does The Fox Say

(Video Link)

Ylvis's video "The Fox" (What Does The Fox Say?) took the interwebs by storm a few months back, creating an upsurge in Google searches for the keyword FOX and a renewed interest in the film The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Now that the video has gone viral and stuck around for over a week the inevitable wave of mashup videos have begun to come crashing down upon us! Avalanche!

This mashup should prove to be the least annoying of the bunch- it's a melange of scenes from Adventure Time clipped together to go along with the song. The Fox may already be getting on your nerves, but look on the bright side- Adventure Time!

Man Reenacts Movie Scenes With Boss's Dog

Ask a man to watch your dog for you at work and you’d better have someone check in on them from time to time, or you may not like the pics you find online. Reddit user mmsspp has been posting pics of himself and his boss’ dog Wrigley re-enacting scenes from famous movies, and the only real problem is they all seem to be from love stories or scenes of romance.

The dog looks cute and all but I can’t imagine anyone wanting to share photographic evidence of their creepy love affair with a dog online, but maybe mmsspp justifies it by claiming they’re just pretending to be in the movies. Yeah right!

Strange Jobs And The Workers Who Love Them

Have you ever thought to yourself- "Gee, I wonder if there’s a person who samples dog foods, or dives into golf course ponds for balls, or evaluates human breath odor?" The answer is yes, yes and oh my yes! These are the odd jobs that most people wonder about, never sure whether they actually exist or not.

They’re odd occupations not normally found in your local job listings, and they are all featured in two books of photography by Nancy Rica Schiff entitled Odd Jobs and Odder Jobs. They range from “that’s weird” to “man am I glad I don’t have THAT job!”, and the mere existence of these niche jobs makes for a fun bit of trivia.

Wolverine Ups The Ante With His Uncanny Epic Split

(Video Link)

First Jean-Claude Van Damme did the Epic Splits stunt in real life between two semi trucks, then an animated Chuck Norris outdid Van Damme with an Epic Splits stunt between two airplanes with a bunch of spec ops guys balanced on his head, Channing Tatum apparently did the splits too but I don't think anybody ever saw that one.

And now we have the only Epic Splits video that actually matters, besides the original that is because Van Damme's stunt was pretty darn cool, featuring some sweet action figure stop motion by Kyle Roberts- here's Wolverine doing the Epic Splits his way, complete with a grumbly little monologue and some Sentinel destruction.

Eat A Pickled Turnip, Don't Get The Flu

When we think of flu prevention we normally think of shots, vitamins, and washing our hands before we eat. But what if you could make yourself unable to contract the influenza virus simply by eating a pickled turnip? Japanese researchers have discovered this possibility hidden in a commonly eaten food called suguki, a pickled turnip that is thought to be a “superfood” because of its health benefits.

When the Lactobacillus brevis bacteria found inside suguki was fed to mice it kept them from contracting the influenza virus, but the same bacteria has yet to be tested on humans. If it turns out to be a viable way to avoid getting the flu every year I’m sure people will start to appreciate the taste of pickled turnip much more!

Man Proposes By Building Three Story Tall Transformers Model

When a guy asks a girl to marry him the proposal is usually accompanied by flowers, dinner, champagne and a box with a ring inside. But one Chinese man felt that the only way he could get his geeky girlfriend to say yes was to construct a thirty foot tall model of Optimus Prime.

He built the Autobot leader out of over 40,000 rivets and almost $10,000 worth of iron and stainless steel, working through 400 drawings over the ten months it took him to transform a pile of metal and bolts into one amazing looking metal sculpture.

A Private Theater Experience For Your Head

Unless you’re in the habit of entertaining lots of guests, or you have a large movie loving family, you probably don’t have a need for a movie theater-sized screen and stadium seating when you sit down to watch your favorite flick.

In fact, those who live alone have probably found themselves wishing for a private viewing experience that completely removes them from all the annoying distractions of the outside world, like friends and family for instance.

According to unfortunately-named Reddit user CertifiedPuppyRapist all you need is a smartphone, a razor blade and a cardboard box big enough to cover your head and you've got a private theater experience that will make you at one with your movie, and forever alone.

The Thirteenth Doctor Has A Silly Little Film Secret

(Video Link)

Any actor who steps into the iconic shoes of sci-fi’s most famous time traveler Doctor Who knows they will have to deal with some far out alien species, strange storylines and as much weirdness as the writers can fit into one hour long episode.

However, it looks like the man who will be playing the thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor, Peter Capaldi, is quite familiar with cinematic strangeness, and he wrote and directed a BBC funded short film entitled Franz Kafka’s It’s A Wonderful Life back in 1995. Take a gander if you dare, and try not to hold this surreal oddity against Peter when he takes over for Matt Smith in 2014.

Stephen Colbert's Brief Appearance In The Latest Hobbit Film

(Video Link)

Patriot and celebrity conversationalist Stephen Colbert has been very up front about his love of The Lord of the Rings, both the movies made by Peter Jackson and the classic novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, and now his devotion to the series has resulted in a split second cameo in the latest film The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.

I’m sure Stephen was super jazzed to be included in the film, but his appearance was so short it’s doubtful moviegoers even realized that the briefly appearing vagabond character in Laketown was actually played by Colbert, but now thanks to ScreenSlam you can bask in the momentary glory of Stephen’s Oscar worthy performance in a LOTR themed movie! You’re welcome America!

A Fun Way To Destroy Your Leftover Christmas Candy

(Video Link)

Do you have a bunch of leftover Christmas candy which are making your New Year’s resolutions hard to keep? Tired of having a sugary Santa Claus staring at you from inside his plastic wrapper? Take a note from YouTube user mist8k and set that candy santa on fire with a little help from science.

Whip out your handy dandy hot plate, a beaker and a bottle of potassium chlorate and you’ve got the makings of a fiery candy explosion. That’s one calorie packed treat that won’t be going straight to your hips!

Don’t try this at home unless you’ve got a scientific background and the proper fire extinguishing materials on hand, but if you’re the neighborhood mad scientist by all means have a ball- of molten candy fire.

3D Paper Illustrations By Sam Pierpoint

Unless an artist is creating papercraft sculptures artworks made out of paper tend to look pretty flat, but Sam Pierpoint creates a sense of three dimensionality with her imaginative and colorful hybrid works.

Sam’s art draws inspiration from psychedelia, children’s book illustration and graphic design, and there's so much to look at in each piece it may take your eyes a while to make the rounds. She creates her works by photographing various sections of paper sculpture, made out of patterned cardstock and construction paper mostly, then she puts the whole thing together in Photoshop, fine tuning the 3D look of each piece with a touch of digital enhancement.

A New Japanese Island That Looks Like Snoopy

Many Japanese people are obsessed with pop culture, both from their own country and abroad, but you know their pop mania has reached new heights when an entire Japanese island starts to look like Charles Schulz’s iconic cartoon character Snoopy.

Over 170 miles south of Japan lie the Bonin Islands, and many people think that the aerial view of the island looks like the overly imaginative white beagle Snoopy. The similarity was pointed out by Twitter user @tekken8810 and now those who have seen cannot seem to unsee the cartoon beagle in the island's outline.

Here's the science behind how this Snoopy shaped island came to be:

There, at this very moment, an active volcano is in the process of rather violently creating a new island. Originating very close to Nishi-no-shima (西之島, Western Island), since last month the new land has steadily grown and is now beginning to overlap with Nishi-no-shima, merging the two.

The volcano is still quite active, so the island probably won't remain in its cute beagle shape for long.

Sculptures Of Stuffed Birds Sporting Bizarre Hairstyles

There are so many varieties of birds flitting around planet Earth that it’s nearly impossible for anyone to have seen them all, but I guarantee even the most experienced birdwatcher has never seen birds like these! With their crazy coiffed hair, fashionable adornments and bold colors these otherworldly birds look like they’re ready for either the catwalk or an interstellar moonwalk.

They were created by Karley Feaver using stuffed birds that died of natural causes, wood, gold plate and human hair, and although all of the elements are from the natural world when they’re used together they give each sculpture a truly unnatural look.

Fan Film Based On Tomb Raider Video Game Series - Croft

(Video Link)

Ever since the first Tomb Raider video game debuted in 1996 people have been going gaga over the smart, sexy and totally badass adventurer named Lara Croft. She’s starred in over a dozen Tomb Raider titles since then, and become a true video game icon in a world sadly lacking in strong female characters.

There have even been a few feature films based on the video game franchise, but none of them have captured the dire circumstances Lara often finds herself in quite like this epic fan film by CanCinema entitled Croft. It’s full of gritty action scenes, beautiful scenery and, of course, Lara Croft kicking some serious tail. (NSFW due to violence)

Broadcast news is full of opportunities for anchor related errors, whether they misread the teleprompter, say something because they don’t realize the cameras are rolling, or have their on location report interrupted by a drunken idiot or some guy flashing his full moon.

It’s a wonder news broadcasts make it on the air at all, and when things inevitably do go wrong the internet is waiting to share these bloopers with the world. Here’s a compilation of the best news bloopers of 2013, which range from silly to ribald, honest mistakes to people acting downright dumb. (NSFW due to language)

Massive Joker's Funhouse LEGO Model

(Video Link)

The Joker loves to play with his toys, and there’s no doubt that if he got his hands on thousands of LEGO bricks he’d begin building some nefarious mass destruction device and have a darn good time combining his passion for toys with his love of mayhem.

This amazing work of LEGO architecture is a fitting homage to the Clown Prince of Crime, and because of its awesome assortment of mechanical details, clever theme and gigantic stature LEGO mastermind Paul Hetherington won Best In Show at Brickcon 2013. The piece took almost 30,000 pieces to build, beating out last year's winner- a 20,000 piece LEGO Batcave.

Wisconsin Is Using Cheese To Thaw Icy Roads

The state of Wisconsin is known for its cheese, and the Cheeseheads that love it so much they’re willing to wear cheese wedge shaped hats to football games. Now that winter is upon them Wisconsin has discovered yet another use for their beloved dairy product- they’re using cheese brine instead of salt to thaw the icy roads.

Salt tends to bounce off the icy surface, and gets knocked away even more by drivers, but a waste product from the cheese making process called cheese brine helps the salt stick to the ice, and together they melt the ice better than salt alone.

The best cheeses to use are provolone and mozzarella, and when you’re finished you can make some delicious cheese flavored slushies with scrapings from the road! Mmmmmm, road cheese!

Surreal Short Film - Stanley Pickle

(Video Link)

When the main character of a film has a funny name like Stanley Pickle you kind of suspect odd and hilarious things from them before the film has even begun.

Stanley lives in a wind up world where everything works like clockwork, and everything can be fixed with a simple turn of the key. But when he encounters a feathered femme fatale in the forest outside his house his mechanical view of the world changes forever.

It's surprising how much heart this short film from Vicky Mather et al packs into a quirky storyline about an oddball mechanical family's life and an unexpected romance. And despite the silly title there’s a maturity to both the story and stylistic elements of the film that make it one fun short to watch.

The Lion King - Cute Kitten Version

Nothing gets people singing Hakuna Matata quite like a good old fashioned Lion King reference, and when you combine the beloved 90s Disney movie with cute kittens you’ve created a video that’s bound to take the interweb by storm.

Just like their previous videos such as Pug Puppy Version of Home Alone and Pug Puppy Version of Elf, this one stars a cuddly cast of young critters (from the People And Cats Together rescue) and a kid narrator to make the whole thing off the charts adorable.

Man Beats World Record For Largest Video Game Collection

Most gamers keep their games just long enough to beat them, but those archivists of digital entertainment who treat video games like Pokemon and gotta catch em all take their collecting very seriously.

Recently the Guinness World Record for largest video game collection was broken by Michael Thomasson who, according to The Associated Press, has a whopping 10,607 titles in his museum quality collection, beating the previous record holder by nearly 2,000 titles.

The funny thing is Michael never has time to play his games since he’s always so busy with work, and he’s already sold his collection twice in his life- first to pay for a Sega Genesis when it was the new hotness, then later in life to pay for his wedding.
