  • 852 Instagramers Unwittingly Contribute To Short Film [Video]

    Amsterdam art director Thomas Jullien used 852 photos on Instagram from 852 users to create this video that shows how similar we are when it comes to what sort of pictures we take. From France, to Australia, to New York, Jullien shows how artistic these photos are as part of a project when on their own many would dismiss them as just typical social media garbage. Will this usher in an era of movies crowdsourced from the seemingly infinite amount of material available on social media? Maybe, but it seems like a lot of work. We’ll leave it to Jullien for now.

    The Russian island of Kildin, located in the Barents Sea near Norway, is home to tons of old military junk from the Soviet-era. Photographer Ralph Mirebs explored the island and took these pictures of assorted anti-missile systems, machine guns, target drones, and a really creepy bunker. The island also has underground tunnels where Russia stores radioactive waste. If the condition of the island’s surface is any indication, the radioactive waste is undoubtedly disposed of in a safe and controlled manner.

  • Seth Rogen And James Franco Parody Kanye and Kim [Video]

    Remember how terrible Kanye West’s “Bound 2″ video, featuring fiance Kim Kardashian, was? If not, you should get your head checked because it just came out last week. Anyway, James Franco and Seth Rogen have remade the video from the set of their upcoming movie, “The Interview”, and it’s as good as the original was bad. Which means it’s really, really good.

  • Meme Alert: Birds With Arms [28 Photos]

    It’s a good thing that birds don’t have arms. If the imaginative photo manipulators at Reddit’s “birds…with arms” subreddit are right in their assumptions, then our winged friends would use their arms to smoke, drink, shoot firearms, and flip us the, um, bird. Of course, they would also be real funny to look at, which these pictures also prove. 

  • Stunning Video Using A Phantom Quadcopter And GoPro Camera

    YouTube user Claytonias F spent months travelling across the United States with a DJI Phantom quadcopter with a GoPro camera mounted to it. The collected footage was paired with Big Black Delta’s “Love You This Summer” to create this incredible video. The pairing of small, resilient, high quality cameras with versatile quadcopters has ushered in a revolution in videography by allowing aerial shots that would have been all but impossible for any production without a significant budget just a few years ago. And this revolution is one we can definitely get behind.

  • Major Lazer Teams With Palladium For “Sweat” [Video]

    Major Lazer, the fun, dancehall DJ side project from famed producer Diplo, has released a video for “Sweat” from their “Free the Universe” album released earlier this year. The video was produced in partnership with footwear manufacturer Palladium, whose boots are prominent throughout. Major Lazer videos are always fun, and “Sweat”, directed by Ryan Staake, is no exception. The black light lit video is a great showcase for Palladium’s boots and if this is the future of footwear advertising, then it’s a future we’ll gladly embrace.

    Colorado news anchor Kyle Clark is sick and tired of viewers sending in pictures of their snow covered patio furniture every time it snows. Last week he took to the air to call out his unimaginative public and plead for better photos of the snow. Come on, Coloradoans (Coloradans?), get your act together. Or not, because this guy is pretty funny and I would like to hear his continued complaints.

    Long lines have been forming inside the David Zwirner gallery in New York City as visitors wait for their chance to stand inside one of eccentric Japanese artist Yoyoi Kusama’s vertigo-inducing “Infinity Rooms.” The installation’s mirror room, “Souls of Millions of Light Years Away,” is brilliantly simple – it’s a room in which the walls, the floor and the ceiling are mirrors.

If you don’t feel like standing in the cold for three hours only to have under a minute of payoff check out the photos we pulled below.

  • Insider Look At A Chaotic Amazon Warehouse [11 Photos]

    As the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon owns and operates 80 enormous fulfillment centers around the globe that are strategically placed to make every online order a breeze, from click to delivery. Amazon must rely on barcodes and human hands to find the ordered items and drop them into the proper bins — without robots, Amazon utilizes a system known as “chaotic storage,” where products are essentially shelved at random. Consumers typically only experience the selection and receiving parts of the fulfillment process; rarely do they get a glimpse into the warehouses where their orders are received, fulfilled and shipped. Now, with thee insider photos, and you’ll finally understand just how overwhelmingly massive Amazon’s warehouses truly are.

  • Pharrell’s 24-Hour Music Video for “Happy”

  • Criss Angel’s Shaq Balloon Sightings

    Earlier this month, Criss Angel blew Flavor Flav’s mind when he made Shaq “levitate” in one of the silliest looking stunts in his lame career as a David Blaine wannabe who looks like he lives in a dumpster behind Hot Topic. Radio hosts Opie and Anthony used their detective skills to deduce that Criss Angel switched out the basketball great with a Shaq balloon that floated around for a bit then, upon landing, pulled the ol’ switcheroo one more time. Shaq, who honed his acting chops in such classics as Steel and Kazaam, then acted as if he had no idea what just happened. Or maybe he wasn’t acting. Now the Shaq balloon has gotten loose and is showing up all over the place.

    Check out these 17 sites from the Internet of long ago (the 90s!) for some nostalgia overload. While at the Space Jam site, be sure to download the free background images, but don’t forget to tile them. Those 128 x 128 Bitmaps don’t stretch too well. The 1996 Fantasy Baseball website is pretty informative, too. I’ve got a good feeling about Kenny Lofton.

  • Celebrities Read More Mean Tweets on Kimmel, Classic Ruffalo

    Call the wambulance. In this weeks roundup of “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” on Kimmel, John Kasinski, Kevin James and Larry David will have us laughing well into this weekend at their own expense.

    Want to feel better about yourself? Then take a look at these pictures from Planet Hiltron, a Facebook page from artist Danny Evans.

  • Chris Farley Stars In Rob Ford: The Movie

    Everyone has made jokes about how similar Toronto’s hilariously troubled mayor Rob Ford is to Chris Farley’s characters, and no someone has actually done something about it. Taking footage from a ton of Farley’s movies, YouTube user Tristan Gough made an awesome trailer for Rob Ford: The Movie. If you can get posthumous Oscars for fan made trailers for films that don’t exist, then Chris Farley is a shoe-in.

    This technology is so jaw dropping, ten years ago these MIT students would’ve been looked at as aliens, 20 years ago, burned at the steak. inFORM, a new project that can reproduce digital content physically in 3D, which allows a user to interact with an object without being in it’s presence. Essentially this is the first step toward the movie Avatar. Inform can also be used for 3D demonstrations rendering physical bar graphs, models and fluid tangible experiences. The inFORM was developed by MIT PhD students Sean Follmer, Daniel Leithinger, and Professor Hiroshi Ishii, from MIT’s Tangible Media Group. Revolutionary steps when thinking of physical form science and architecture, being able to shape and mold an object without even being in the room. “The traditional sort of interaction design and device design sort of assumes for a very static way of interacting and this [inFORM] device can change its physical form very quickly and that means that we need to come up with new ways that we interact with technology,” Follmer said. But All this didn’t come cheap the inFORM contains 900 small motors which control each pin on it. Every pin works to render objects in 3D, and each more »

  • Hypnotizing Commercial For Mike’s Golf Shop [Video]

    Mike of Mike’s Golf Shop in Chattanooga, Tennessee, made his own commercial where he lets you know that he buys golf. Did you get that? Don’t worry, he’ll repeat it again and again until that’s all you hear. Could he be the mastermind behind those Head-On commercials (apply directly to the forehead)? The original commercial, made last month on Mike’s iPhone, is now going viral but Mike feels his message may still not be clear. To rectify this, he has just released a video where he sings about buying golf clubs. Maybe he would be less confusing if he took down that “we buy music gear” sign.
