Documentary About Rene Magritte Featuring Music By Roger Waters

(YouTube Link)

Belgian surrealist Rene Magritte is the subject of this 1978 documentary, which just happens to have a soundtrack scored by rock icon Roger Waters of Pink Floyd!

It may be a bit dry in places, and the narrator sounds like the one heard in those terribly outdated educational films you were forced to watch in school, but if you love Pink Floyd then you'll want to watch the whole thing for the sake of the tripped out soundtrack.

Photo Composites Of Women And Insects

Insectes is a photographic composite series by Laurent Seroussi that combines women and bugs into disgusting insectoid hybrids worthy of a starring role in your worst nightmares.

There's something elegant about these figure, despite the claws and various sharp bits, that makes them look rather delicate and decidedly feminine.

But you wouldn't want to show up to the ball escorting one of these bugged out femmes, at least not without feeding her first!

Animal Kingdom Wildlife Treated To Pumpkins For Halloween

(YouTube Link)

The folks at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park know the best way to get their critters in on the Halloween fun is to surprise them with a pumpkin.

Some of the animals think the orange squash in their enclosure might be part of a trick, but soon after they discover what a treat it is to have a pumpkin of their very own, and it sure beats going to the dentist after eating too much candy!

Looking Pretty As A Picture In A Polaroid Snapshot Costume

Photo: Christine Krizsa/Flickr

Turning yourself into a living snapshot is a fun idea for a costume that's also relatively easy to put together.

All you need is some foam core board, an xacto knife and some sort of adhesive or tape and you can put yourself in the picture.

The living snapshot also has lots of potential variations- mugshot, post mortem shot, trashy look with fancy clothes on below, black and white... the list goes on and on, which is why this costume is perfect for the DIY crowd.

A Terrifyingly Realistic Prop Called The Asylum Door

(YouTube Link)

This is the Asylum Door, a Halloween prop sure to scare the pants off of anyone who dares come a knockin'.

The effect is created by mounting a tablet or portable dvd player screen to a door's window pane, facing the footage forward so the viewer feels like they're looking in on a horrific asylum scene.

You can set it up to play any kind of scary video you'd like, but a hallway or interior scene creates the most convincing illusion.

Try it for yourself and see if anyone is brave enough to open the door...

This Boy Is Upset That He's Not A Single Lady

(YouTube Link)

There are lots of things that kids have to figure out as they grow up, like the fact that a little boy will never qualify as a single lady!

Watch this poor kid get his bubble burst by his dad, as he realizes that Beyonce is no longer singing directly to him.

It's Important To Be Honest With Your Children

When your little ones start playing dress up, and find their way into your makeup, be honest with them about how silly they look or they might start painting their faces like clowns during adolescence.

I don't know if I would put a bag over my child's head, at least not without cutting a few eyeholes in the bag first!

Weird Poems Accompanied By Even Weirder Drawings

Alex Sparks and Bret Hawkins are collaborating on a project called The Ninety-Nine Draft, which features oddball illustrations based on short "poems" meant to conjure strange mental images.

The accompanying drawings have an extremely unique graphic style that reveals the inherently serious nature of phrases like "all my friends have antlers" and "I am becoming a mountain of puberty".

Animated Short - Life By A Thread

(YouTube Link)

Animator Jim Segrue is part of the award winning team at Titmouse, the folks responsible for shows like Metalocalypse, Superjail and Black Dynamite, but this time he's stretching out his wings and flying solo.

His newest short Life By A Thread details an alley cat's search for warmth during those cold winter months, and the only thing this squashy, stretchy character animation smearfest seems to be missing is a suitable soundtrack.

Anybody have access to a theremin? Or a musical saw and trombone?

Dragon Sculpture Made Out Of Oil Drums

Chinese artist Qiu Zhijie created this magnificent metal dragon sculpture out of old oil drums, in order to signify "tension between the natural and modern worlds".

The face and body are covered in details so sharp they'll take your hands right off if you're foolish enough to try and pet the dragon.

What a fitting, and ecologically friendly, way to celebrate the Year of the Dragon!

Don't Mess With The Hob-Bot

Scary Cool Catrina Costume

Photo: Anna Fischer/Flickr

La Catrina originated in the Jose Guadalupe Posada's print entitled La Calavera de la Catrina (the skull of the rich woman), and has since become one of the most recognizable symbols of Mexico's Dia De Los Muertos celebration.

Catrinas wear pretty dresses, with spots where their bones show through, a big hat and lots of colorful flowers.

Catrinas have a bony skull face, but that doesn't mean they have to be scary. In fact, most Catrinas prefer to be elegant rather than gruesome.

Look Out! There's A Vicious Goose On The Loose!

You know your building's security has become way too lax when they post a note on the door about the dangerous goose on the loose, instead of simply shooing the thing away.

The note wouldn't be nearly as believable if the culprit weren't posing for the picture with that murderous gleam in his eye! 

Ack! My achin' kneecaps...

Strange And Cinematic Photographs By Alena Beljakova

Photographer Alena Beljakova has a story to tell, one which Hollywood directors should take note of and viewers are free to get lost in.

It's an extremely well formed vision for a nineteen year old, but I think that's what makes Alena's photos so special.

She's going to keep telling her tales, hopefully for a long time to come. And we may just get to the bottom of why those people wearing the bunny masks look like they're up to no good...

What If Pixar Made The Expendables 2?

(YouTube Link)

Wacky mashup videos abound, but this one's got the slurred tough guy tones of Stallone mixed up with the slick shiny look of Pixar's Toy Story movies.

I don't think this movie would have qualified as family friendly entertainment, what with all those plastic body parts being blown across the screen!

Grand Theft Auto- Dragon Style

It lets you play as a dragon from Final Fantasy XI, complete with fire breath and Skyrim inspired shout noises for some odd reason...

A Version Of Bert & Ernie That Might Scare The Kids On Sesame Street

Dressing as Bert and Ernie for Halloween can be a great buddy costume idea, but it can also be a horrifyingly creepy look if you're not careful. 

If you're going to represent the Street that Henson built, at least paint a smile on your face, for the sake of the kiddies!
