Deliciously Cute Skull And Candy Assemblages

The assemblage works of Cristina Burns are guaranteed to be the cutest skeleton based art photos you’ll see all day, unless you subscribe to a site called Cuddly Calaveras, in which case you’ve seen enough cute skulls to last a lifetime!

The Italian artist and photographer has a knack for combining cute and morbid visual elements in a manner pleasing to the eye and appealing to the tastebuds of sugarholics like myself.

Cristina's brightly colored candy and skull assemblages would look right at home on the ofrenda table during Dia de los Muertos, and the usage of fresh flowers, candy and plastic skeleton parts makes for a fun photo series with an infinite number of comical and colorful combinations.

Disney's New 3D Printing Technology Turns Any Object Into A Speaker

3D printing has reached a point where people are looking to do more than just print things in plastic, so we now have food printers, doctors are printing out bones, and most recently a technology developed by Disney Research interaction designer Ivan Poupyrev that turns any object into a speaker. Here’s how it works:

Technically, this means that any object around us would be able to “talk”

To apply this technology, we have to thread a wire that carries an “electrical impulse of sound” through the object, before covering it with electrodes in order to charge “its skin with the potential to create sound”.

Ivan’s advancement could lead to some incredibly immersive experiences, like the ability to cover entire surfaces of walls and objects with speakers, or turning fashion accessories into mini speakers so you can share your favorite tunes with the world.

The Nerdiest Explanation For The Lack Of Female Star Wars Characters

Many women are up in arms about the lack of characters in the world of Star Wars, in other words they’re looking for geeky icons of their own and coming up short, which is a fair point.

This used to be explained away with sales, stating that it was simply a matter of marketing towards a target audience, but nowadays there’s really no excuse not to include female characters in sci-fi franchises like Star Wars.

The discussion has been re-kindled by the casting announcement for Star Wars Episode VII, which only included one female character, and that has caused people to revisit the strange Star Wars theory set out last Octoer by author Matthew Gladstone last October dubbed the Hive Theory.

Short explanation: There are no humans in Star Wars.

This Is What Tattooing Looks Like In Slow Motion

(Video Link)

Tattoos can look amazing when they're done right, look like a train wreck when the gun is handed to an unskilled amateur, and they’re meant to last forever so whether you regret them or not, grow out of them or never stop loving your ink, they’re always going to be with you.

Tattooing is a process by which ink is punched into the skin with a needle hundreds, if not thousands, of times, and when you watch a tattoo being created in slow motion it may send shivers down your spine.

Tattoo artists GueT Deep created this slo-mo video showing a tattoo being applied to the skin, one agonizingly slow needle slam at a time.

Good Samaritan Turns Trash Into Mobile Homes For The Homeless

(Images by Brian J. Reynolds)

Recycling is a good act in itself, at least as far as the planet is concerned, so when you use recycled materials to construct cute little portable houses for the homeless does that make it the totally best thing ever done with recyclable waste?

Kind-hearted builder Gregory Kloehn definitely thinks so, and his Homeless Homes project is providing cool little mobile domiciles to homeless people in Oakland, California, which he creates using materials gathered while dumpster-diving in industrial neighborhoods.

Gregory’s custom homes are around the size of a sofa, and they all come on wheels with a charming look that often retains the look and texture of the source material.

Breakdancing Monks Show Off Their Skills For MCA-DAY

(Image Via KNARF New York)

(Video Link)

Breakdancing is really hard for people to learn who are used to counting their steps and holding their partners hands, but when you’re a Buddhist monk who has spent his life studying martial arts, and keeping your body in peak physical condition, breakdancing sorta comes naturally.

The monks in this video aren’t actually Buddhist monks, but they bust out with some impressive b-boy skills nevertheless, showing mad love for the fallen Beastie Boy MCA (Adam Yauch) who died on May 4, 2012.

May 4th has become an unofficial holiday in New York called MCA-DAY, and last year a park in Brooklyn Heights was dedicated to Yauch, but this year's breakdancing monk-stravaganza seems a more fitting tribute to MCA, who was a practicing Buddhist.

Dizzying Optical Illusion Freestyle Bike Course

(Video Link)

Freestyle bike courses can be long and rampy, or full of crazy ledges and mini-ramps packed into a tighter, faster space, but when you add an optical illusion paint job you’ve got a freestyle bike course that looks like a dizzying level from a video game.

This mind boggling 3D illusion course was created by Red Bull, and fixed gear freestyle rider Josh Boothby was chosen to ride on this course that doesn't look quite as crazy from the ground, but when it's viewed through a camera lens 30 feet above the course it looks like Josh is riding through the most maddening Marble Madness level ever created.

Growing Up In Arcades 1979-1989

Once upon a time kids spent a hell of a lot of time, and money, filling their eyes with pixels and their ears with beeps and boops at local video arcades, which were like heaven on earth to diehard gamers like myself.

Kids who grew up in the 80s often found everything their little hearts desired in arcades, from friendships to snack bars to prizes, as savvy owners cashed in on the trend that gave kids around the world Pac-Man Fever.

A fun new Flickr pool called Growing Up In Arcades:1979-1989 is helping gamers relive those glory days with photos taken at arcades, theme restaurants like Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theatre and Showbiz Pizza Palace, and anywhere you could find "vintage games in the wild" back in the neon colored 1980s.

Game Of Thrones Pick-Up Lines

When you come from a land like Westeros, which is full of brutality, slavery and the threat of death by dragon or frozen zombie, you don’t have time to master the subtle art of the pick up line. You need a more direct way to meet members of the opposite sex, ways to cut to the chase and show your prey that you're hungry like the wolf.

Imgur user GarthAlgar has come up with some rather creative ways to woo the apple of your eye in a series called (appropriately enough) Game of Thrones Pick-Up Lines, which includes gems like "Are your clothes a slave? Because I'd like to free you of them" and of course "Hodor? Hodor." because Hodor.

Infamous Dictators Being Comforted By Stuffed Animals

Dictators like Castro, Hussein and Gaddafi don’t seem like the kind of guys who seek comfort from  stuffed animals when they’re feeling picked on and unloved, but Chunlong Sun’s hilarious photo series “Celebrity” reveals their dark plushie secrets. 

These are the “forbidden portraits” of the infamous, the skeletons in their dictatorial closets that they don’t want their enemies to discover, the humanizing moments that undermine their ability to rule with an iron fist.

Sometimes you need an army to solve your personal problems, but sometimes all it takes is a little cuddle time with your favorite plush toy!

Cross Stitch Street Art On Chain Link Fences

Pixel art meets chainlink fence in these street art works by Urban X Stitch, who has been adding a bit of creative color to fences all over Lyon, France in the form of cross stitched pixel art murals.

Like Yarnbombing, the techniques used to create these soft artworks have their origins in the needle arts, and the simple existence of urban cross stitching seems to completely undermine the position by some that street art is created by vandals and criminals.

Urban X Stitch's works are full of colorful cartoon characters, and are sure to put a smile on the faces of those who come across these fence brightening cross stitches around town.

Beautiful Photos Of Coney Island In The 1960s

When many people hear the name Coney Island they think of beachside fun, amusement park rides and sideshow acts, but personally the Warriors always seems to spring to mind, and then the whole place seems somehow terrifying.

Truth is, Coney Island is both entertaining and frightening, charming and creepy in a uniquely Coney way, and back in the day it was the go-to destination for many New Yorkers looking for a mini vacay, and boy do those vintage hotspots make for great photo ops!

The photos in this particular series were taken by shutterbug Aaron Rose in the 1960s, part of an exhibition showing at the Museum of the City of New York called “In A World Of Their Own: Coney Island Photographs By Aaron Rose”.

Cast Of X-Men: Days Of Future Past Dance And Explore Fan Art

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

There’s something about talk show host Graham Norton that makes people want to act the fool around him, which makes his show great fun to watch and often changes my opinions about certain celebrities based on their appearance on his show.

The stars of the upcoming movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender hung out with Graham while he exposed them to semi-erotic fan art and strange fan fiction tales about the three men, Hugh exposes everyone to stories about running around the set naked, and then they get down to Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines.

Meet Frane Selak, The Luckiest Unlucky Man To Ever Live

(Video Link)

Frane Celak has the dubious distinction of being the luckiest unlucky man in history, and he has survived so many vehicular disasters in his day they ought to sign him to the National Transportation Safety Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration!

Frane's amazing string of lucky escapes culminated in him winning the lottery, and now his story is being told in animated form thanks to this colorful short by This & That Visuals, with voice-over by John Block.

Animation seems like the perfect medium for telling Frane's tale, since his many escapes make it seem like he's living in a cartoon!

Norman Rockwell Inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Art

The Ninja Turtles have become pop culture icons since they were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in the 1980s, and the various video game, movie, toy and comic book incarnations that have come out since cemented their place in pop culture history.

However, their geeky fame is nothing compared to the overall popularity of the iconic artworks created by Norman Rockwell, who is generally seen as one of America’s greatest painters.

Well, it was only a matter of time before someone brought the Rockwell look to TMNT, and that someone is illustrator Bryan Lee, who has created a geek-tastic series that captures the look and feel of Rockwell with mutant turtles as the stars of each piece. Classic Cowabunga!

If Life Was Like A Video Game It Would Look Exactly Like SUPER LIFE

(Video Link)

Life is like a dream or a box of chocolates, life is hell, beautiful and golden, but if your life is like a video game then you probably have some pretty interesting stories to tell!

However, a video game based on real life has the potential to be quite boring, unless it’s something like the everyday found in SUPER LIFE, a video game inspired animated short by Eben McCue.

SUPER LIFE has all the ingredients of an average lifetime- a baby crawling out of the hospital, confusion and cooties on the playground, a football scholarship that leads to a job with a tech company, and finally a good old fashioned seaside burial.

New Mickey Mouse Animated Short - Fire Escape

(Video Link)

The creative animators at DisneyShorts have done a really good job of bringing Mickey Mouse back for fans young and old, and trying to get us all to forget about that awful looking called Mickey’s Clubhouse, which features some downright terrible CGI.

Since the release of the Mickey short Runaway Brain in 1995 the DisneyShorts division has succeeded in getting fans of that most famous mouse back on board, and Get A Horse! (2013) began a new wave of Mickey shorts with a snazzy new look.

Their latest short is called Fire Escape, and it continues the new old school series while retaining a lot of the comedic charm people have come to expect from Disney animated shorts.

Women And Children Who Look Like Michael Cera

Comedic actor Michael Cera has a very familiar face, and he has stated in interviews that he gets mistaken for other people on the street all the time, but what is it about his face that seems so familiar? Is it those gentle eyes, that pert nose, or that soft, downy moustache he sometimes sports in public?

It’s hard to put your finger on why Michael Cera looks so familiar, that is until you see this collection of Women and Children That Look Like Michael Cera (and one entire Michael Cera looking family), put together by those fun-loving folks at BuzzFeed.

Student Poses As Teenager From Every Decade In The Last Hundred Years

There’s a common misconception that young folks don’t care much about the past these days, since they’re too caught up in tech gadgets and social media, but teenager Annalisa Hartlaub aims to change that misconception with a school photography project where she imagines herself as a teenager from every decade over the last hundred years.

Her era specific photos find her as a mainstream teen on the left and a counter-culture teen on the right, and in addition to being a project about self exploration the photos also do a great job of showing how little styles have changed over the last hundred years.

Muscle Dancing

(Video Link)

Muscle Dancing is one of those strange videos that makes you wonder why the heck it was ever made, or what the stars were hoping to accomplish, besides driving the ladies wild!

Muscle Dancing is a unique video clip to say the least- it was taken from a Winnipeg public access show called Winnipeg Babysitter that aired back in the 70s and 80s, and even though it is virtually devoid of muscles, and the dancing looks like the trailer park version of Magic Mike, you gotta applaud these two cavalier fellows for their high self esteem and winning smiles! *grin*

Watch A Full Talking Heads Concert From 1978

(Video Link)

(Video Link)

The Talking Heads are often best remembered for hit songs like Burning Down The House and Psycho Killer, and that music video where David Byrne wears the suit with the ridiculously large shoulder pads, but they had to put in quite a bit of work touring and performing before achieving mainstream success with these popular songs.

They played 130 shows in 1978 alone, an epic year of touring that they admit left them "feeling pretty uninspired", and even though both of these concert videos were recorded in New York that year it's hard to tell that they're burned out on touring, because they put on an amazing show!

A Magical Kingdom Indeed! Disney Tarot Cards

It appears practitioners of the mystical arts are getting started at a rather early age these days, and thanks to accessories like these Disney Tarot cards by DeviantARTist D’Morte, the Arch-Druid of Tinver Moor, they can divine the future in animated style.

These colorful Tarot cards feature the major players in the world of Disney cartoons as each of the 22 figures in the Major Arcana, including Goofy as the Hanged Man, Pinocchio as the Fool, and Sorcerer Mickey as (what else!) the Magician.

They’re the cutest way to anger your ultra-religious parents, and a colorful way to get kids playing with a totally different kind of Magic cards.

The Doozers Are Back And Teaching Kids About Engineering

Do you remember the Doozers from Fraggle Rock? They were those little construction working cuties who were always trying to finish building stuff before a hungry Fraggle came along and ate up all their hard work.

They were tiny and green and adorable, and they seemed to know much more about construction than any Fraggle besides Travelling Matt, of course, because he knew everything!

Now the Jim Henson company is bringing the Doozers back in a brand new animated series to be released on Hulu. It's a fun way to teach kids about engineering, and any new project that may bring the Fraggles back is alright with me!

Amazingly Detailed Papercraft Addams Family House

Creepy TV families don’t come much more iconic than the Addams Family, and their home was like a museum of weirdness that made Dracula’s castle look like a gingerbread house.

Creative paper crafter Alan Ronay has created his own version of the Addams abode, complete with crazy taxidermy on the walls, Lurch's signature harpsichord, and many visual easter eggs only a true fan of the Addams Family will be able to spot.

Alan's Etsy shop EverydayMiniatures is where he sells many of his fancy fictional paper homes, from shows like the Golden Girls and I Love Lucy, but be forewarned- these mini estates cost a pretty penny.

Skeletal Sculptures Made Out Of Cassette Tapes

Now that music has gone from cassettes to discs to digital files what the heck are we supposed to do with all those leftover tapes?

Brian Dettmer has a pretty good idea of what to do with dead media, and his amazing skeletal sculptures are made out of cassette tapes which are melted ever so gently into bone shapes.

Brian’s works are so meticulously crafted that the tapes preserve much of their original integrity, like the album titles, the reels and the windows, and Brian's grasp of anatomy is so strong that his melted musical masterpieces have all the right parts in all the right places.

Bugs Are A Taste Sensation That's Sweeping The Nation

People around the world enjoy eating bugs- they’re a good source of protein, a renewable and plentiful resource, and there are enough flavor varieties to keep even the most jaded foodies coming back for more.

But Americans in general haven’t really embraced the concept of eating bugs, except for the occasional worm at the bottom of a bottle of tequila, but edible insects are a culinary delight that should be embraced, especially since so much of the pre-packaged food out there can’t compare to the vitamins and nutrients found in bugs.

Entomophagist Daniella Martin is the author of Edible: An Adventure Into The World Of Eating Insects, and her take on why we should all eat more bugs is enlightening and may change the way you think of those snacks that go squirm in the night.

Creative Father Makes Crazy Photo Manipulations Starring His Three Daughters

Being the proud father of three girls can be an adventure in itself, but real life adventures in fatherhood rarely make for epic photographs.

However, when daddy has some serious Photoshop skills he can turn even the most mundane fatherly activities into an epic scene straight out of a movie!

John Wilhelm is an IT Director at a Swiss university and the father of three adorable little girls, and he uses his digital art skills to spice up his family's home life by casting his daughters, and occasionally his wife, in imaginative adventures. The photos in his series are not only full of fantasy imagery- they're fantastically well made, and represent a father's love of both his art and his family.

How Well Do You Know Pokemon?

Behind The Scenes Movie Photos You Can't Unsee

Behind the scenes photos from classic movies are a fun way for fans to learn more about the production process involved in making their favorite flicks, but when those photos present a disillusioning side of the Hollywood machine those fans may want to tear down their posters and put up pictures of their favorite cartoon characters!

It may be a bit disappointing to find out that Marlon Brando didn't memorize his lines so he needed cue cards, or that the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was actually a miniature puppet and not a giant guy in a rubber suit (shocking, right?!) but that's why they call it movie magic!
