  • 24 Vintage Sports Ads

    I think it’s safe to say that if there’s one thing to take from these ads, it’s that if you wish to be a baseball great, you should start smoking cigarettes. Do they still make Chesterfields? Because I’d sure like to be the next Ted Williams! Also, note the Arthur Ashe Bufferin ad that mentions the heart surgery where he got the blood transfusion that was later revealed to be the cause of his AIDS.

  • North Korea As Seen Through Instagram [25 Photos]

    Photographer David Guttenfelder of the Associated Press uses his Instagram account, dguttenfelder, to share his photos of the notoriously “camera shy” nation of North Korea. For his incredible work in the secretive, Communist nation, David was honored with the title of TIME Instagram Photographer of the Year for 2013. How is he able to do it? Recently, North Korea relaxed its laws concerning photography and Internet access, allowing tourists to carry around their smartphones and freely take pictures that they could immediately upload over 3G Internet without any intervention from the government. Guttenfelder, who resides in Pyongyang, has been taking advantage of the opportunity ever since, giving the rest of the world access to a country that has been hidden for more than half a century.

  • ESPN Releases First World Cup Promo [Video]

    2014 is finally here which means it’s time again for the the FIFA World Cup. This promo from ESPN will get you so pumped, that you’ll be sure to forget about the mass protests in Brazil against the tournament, which is causing the forced relocation of 30,000 families. Also, with the games closer to US time zones, we won’t have the luxury of getting drunk at 7 AM watching live matches from South Africa like the vuvuzela-laden party that was World Cup 2010, which means there probably won’t be as much interest from casual observers. No matter what, I know I’ll be glued to the TV come June just to see the South American fans. Remember Larissa Riquelme?

  • Invisible Bicycles Prove You Can Find Everything On The Internet [30 Photos]

    Reddit again proves that there is a subreddit for everything with the growing popularity of r/InvisibleBicycles.

  • Ron Mueck’s Hyperrealistic Sculptures [20 Photos]

    Australian artist Ron Mueck uses resin, fiberglass, silicone, and many other materials to create hyperrealistic sculptures that look extremely lifelike aside from the often outrageous scale. Mueck’s work, first shown in 1996 in London and most recently exhibited in Latin America, has been seen all over Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania. These grotesque representations of humanity are especially interesting since Mueck began his career making puppets for a children’s show in Australia in the early 80s. Let’s just be glad that whoever created the Lady Elaine Fairchilde puppet on Mr. Rogers isn’t making giant hyperrealistic sculptures.

  • Posters Visualizing SMH Client Feedback

    Everyone has someone to answer to. A boss, a client, a coworker; and they all have opinions. Sometimes it may be constructive criticism, but sometimes people talk, because they like hearing the sound of their own voice, unbeknownst of their own word vomit. A site called Clients from Hell, several Irish creative companies joined forces on a series called “Sharp Suits”… “Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters.” Let’s just remember that these quotes are from the people keeping the lights on.
