Donatello by Dave Rapoza

Donatello by Dave Rapoza

I love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Donatello was always my favorite. Even when Eastman & Laird first created them they weren’t really threatening even though they killed a lot of bad guys ninja-style. But they still have a cute quality about them. Well, not this time. Donatello looks to be out for blood […]

Mario as a Painted Fire Hydrant

Mario as a Painted Fire Hydrant

Mario has been a part of our pop culture for decades and seeing him as a painted fire hydrant kind of feels…I don’t know…just right.

Metal Skeletons Out for a Walk

Metal Skeletons Out for a Walk

Love this sculpture art, somewhere in the middle of nowhere, showing a man skeleton walking his pet T-rex skeleton. Good boy, Rex, good boy!

Going in Circles

Going in Circles

If you thought painting was hard, or even drawing proportionately accurate stick figures was mildly difficult, check out what Signapore-based artist Chan Hwee Chong can do with just one pen. As part of an advertising campaign for a company’s pen, he recreates classic masterpieces in ink. Better yet, he does it all without lifting the tool […]

Tire Sculptures

Tire Sculptures

This is why you go to art school. The amount of detail put into each sculpture is just amazing. Sculptor Yong Ho Ji has mastered the practice of turning what is otherwise roadside garbage into works of original art. Using only resin and screws to hold the sculptures together, Ji makes anyone who is lucky […]

Straight as a Ball

Straight as a Ball

At first you may be wondering what the smurf that thing is, and you’d be correct in doing so, because it’s weird looking. You may think it’s a strange cup holder or perhaps a stylish engagement ring for nerds, but you’d be wrong. In fact, you were very wrong. It’s actually a device that supposedly […]

Best Conan Movie Quote Ever! Lamentation Ripped Off?

Best Conan Movie Quote Ever! Lamentation Ripped Off?

I’m psyched to see the new Conan movie this weekend starring Jason Momoa. He was awesome as Khal Drogo, in Game of Thrones, and has the perfect look for Conan. Regardless of if the new movie is good or not, I’m sure in some ways it will never compare to the original Arnold Schwarzenegger Conan […]

Take My Car – And My Wife

Take My Car – And My Wife

- At first it looks like any other car for sale on eBay.  It’s a bitchin’ Camaro for sale by some dude in New York.  But, take a closer look at his advertising strategy. The text says:  “As much as this car & my wife are loved and will be missed.  I am forced to part […]

Plays on Names – Mr. T and Ice T.

Plays on Names – Mr. T and Ice T.

Why didn’t I think of this?  And, how many more of these can we do?  Did somebody make a picture for Apple Martin?  Audio Science Sossamon?  50 Cent?  Eminem?  Where are all those pictures, you crazy Photoshop wizards? He looks so sad.  But all the little Ice Cubes look pretty happy.  What’s up with that?  […]

More Dancing Dogs – Cindy Gives El Willy a Run for His Money

More Dancing Dogs – Cindy Gives El Willy a Run for His Money

So. Cindy here is a dancing dog. Maybe a Golden Retriever?  She has a dress, which puts her a few points above El Willy since he’s dancing totally in the nude.  Also, she can follow choreography, so that makes her, obviously, a smarter dog, but is she really a better dancer?  Where is Bruno when […]

Maneggs Mario Nightmare

Maneggs Mario Nightmare

What is wrong with me that I find this so amusing?  This artist, maneggs, does some really disturbing but funny stuff.  I’d like to say I understand it all, but the horse one (one or two before the one you see above) flummoxes me.  This above, this is just a masterpiece.  Though I don’t know […]

Goats are Rule-Breakers

Goats are Rule-Breakers

Also, goats can’t read.  They do, however, have a rich mythological history dating back to Norse mythology, where they were responsible for pulling Thor’s chariot.  Thor’s goats have a special talent – he eats their flesh, then wraps their bones up, then in the morning they’re revived and ready to start all over again.  In […]

Advice for Mid-Morning RE: Your Farts

Advice for Mid-Morning RE:  Your Farts

There is this delightful blogspot called All About Chuba where the guy puts cute pictures of his own dog, Chuba, and other very cute pictures of dogs.  If you are one to look at lots of cute dog pictures during your workday, I’d advise you to go there.  This particular picture (not of Chuba) cautions […]

Binder clips cost about $13 bucks for 48 of the big 2″ ones.  I’m not going to do a ripoff of Master Card’s Binder Clips:  $13 bucks, Having Your Cords Untangled:  Priceless bit, but this was a really clever way to keep your computer cords sorted out without one of those inexpensive labels and whatevers […]

Sneak Attack

Sneak Attack

From gifbin.com.  I wish this was a bigger gif.  The gif giffeth, the gif taketh away.  Unfortunately, the Gif Mecca that is gifbin does not speak to the context of this gif, except to say that it is “Camouflage.”  Yes, yes it is.  Gizmodo also posted it (bigger, and not as a gif), and commented […]

Tragedy Strikes

Tragedy Strikes

VIA:  UniqueDaily It was a normal day on the piece of paper.  Ted and Joe were walking along, talking about how nice the temperature was on the piece of paper, how pretentious those stick figures drawn in pen are…the normal stuff.  Suddenly, without warning, the pink hand of the Alien Pencil People descended on the […]

The Dark Phone

VIA:  Unknown Are two Batman-related posts in two days a bad thing?  To some, maybe, but to many, absolutely not.  For some people. we could post something about Batman every day and people would like us more.  Or not.  I know that Star Wars stuff makes people like you more.  Everybody likes Star Wars. So, […]

Unexplainable Gif

Unexplainable Gif

This is my favorite thing today. I would be lying if I said, “Why no, I could not spend an entire day an a half looking at animated gifs.”  They fascinate me.  This one, in particular fascinates me.  “If you don’t give me the deed to your ranch I’m gonna wobble all your wobble horses.”  […]

Disturbing Superhero Fan Art

Disturbing Superhero Fan Art

I could probably do a post with a hundred pictures for this subject, but I’ll save that for a longer blog post.  For now, I submit this, which I found on a friend’s Facebook page, where the friend was tagged as the baby in Batman’s belly. This is disturbing on many levels.  Suspending the disbelief […]

Damien Hirst: Bizarre Art, Commercial Vanity or Genius?

Damien Hirst: Bizarre Art, Commercial Vanity or Genius?

The English artist, Damien Hirst either evokes gasps of shock, fits of giggles or a furrowing of the brow with thought provoked.  Personally, he evokes none of these feelings; instead, it is far worse for an artist – it is indifference. Let’s take a look at some of Hirst’s works first and we’ll take a […]
