    This is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Wagon toy that pro modder Platinumfungi fitted with a functional Nintendo system. The controllers were painted by Custom NES Guy. They both did amazing jobs. So good, in fact, that I'm willing to offer my firstborn son for the sy... / Continue →

    This is the $185,000 Onyx Sofa from Peugeot. It measures 3-meters (~10-feet) long, 800-pounds, and is made from a chunk of volcanic rock and carbon fiber. It does not look like the sort of sofa I'd want to throw myself down on. Or make love on. Make love TO? Maybe. Regar... / Continue →

    Seen here looking exactly like the kind of person I imagine would get arrested trying to sell stolen brains online, David Charles (two first names!) poses for his mug shot. David was apprehended after stealing jars of human tissue (including brains) from the Indiana Medical Hi... / Continue →

    Note: This is nowhere near the whole thing, keep going to see the entire piece in three separate images. This is a 3,266 line piece of ANSI art created by the members of blocktronics and ACiD Productions. What's ANSI art? I'll let my buddy khz explain it. You see, he used t... / Continue →

    This is a 1935 Buffalo/Indian head 'hobo nickel' for sale on eBay featuring a carving of the Hulk ready to leap out of the coin and rage-stomp a pocketful of pennies. What the hell is a hobo nickel? Take it away, Wikipedia!: The hobo nickel is a sculptural art form involving... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE, because art was meant to be enjoyed and not just squinted at. This is the Michalangelo's 'The Creation of Adam' (part of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling fresco) reimagined by DeviantARTist PurpleKecleon with 'Adventure Time' characters (which is appropr... / Continue →

    This is a series of shots from Japan of the rice patties farmers have turned into giant works of art by carefully planting different colored rice plants. Cool, but I went to a farm once and splashed around in a mud puddle for ten minutes before Old MacDonald finally told me it... / Continue →

    This is a time-lapse video of an Egyptian statuette of Osiris, the god of death, slowly rotating 180-degrees in its locked display case over the course of several days. Some people are convinced there's a ancient curse involved, but those people are idiots. Clearly this is th... / Continue →

    This is the 1953 Volkswagen Beetle exterior that was crumpled into a sphere by Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor. I think we can all agree it makes a powerful statement about how fun it would be to push that thing down a hill. He got his idea of this piece from his personal per... / Continue →

    This is the styrofoam cup some guy drew on while waiting for his car to be repaired at the dealership. Me? I usually see what they have in the snack machine, make a cup of bad coffee, then take a seat and think about all the different ways I'd rather die instead of sitting th... / Continue →

    This is the giant floating assault rifle artist Michael Murphy made by suspending black ping pong balls from the ceiling (it's actually like twenty feet deep -- more shots after the jump). SURPRISE, it's supposed to carry a powerful social message. And apparently not one abou... / Continue →

    This is the 20-foot long (it looks longer to me but I've ridden real dinosaurs though so I should know) balloon animal Acrocanthosaurus built by balloon-twisting professional (and awesome dude to have at a kid's birthday party) Larry Moss and his team at Airigami for Virginia's... / Continue →

    This is a collaboration piece between Vincent Van Gogh and DeviantARTist SirNosh featuring Pac-Man and some ghosts running amok in Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'. Now I'm not saying throwing some video game characters into classic paintings would be a great way to get kids interest... / Continue →

    Well folks, the Space Shuttle Discovery felt the wild blue yonder for the last time today, making a low-altitude flight over Washington DC atop it's special 747 shuttle carrier on the way from Florida to its final resting place at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res desktop background version HERE. Remember Mike Doyle's 60,000-piece LEGO Victorian house that'd been smashed by a tree? Well he's back with another build, this time a "110,000 - 130,000-piece Victorian perched atop a mud heap. Which, WHO BUILDS A HOUSE ON A M... / Continue →

    Paleontologists in Canada have discovered a treasure trove of dinosaur feathers (I know -- it's still hard for me to believe too) trapped in amber that should shed some light on the evolution of feathered animals, and, God unwilling but let's totally do it anyways, the potentia... / Continue →

    This is a Predator (NOT Terminator) bust made entirely out of LEGO pieces by numba one stunna skilled builder Shawn Snyder. I...never would have guessed you could have made such an accurate Predator face out of LEGO. I f***in' love those eyebrows. Mine? Not so much. I shav... / Continue →

    I know you're not supposed to speak ill of the dead for fear of their ghosts pouring laxatives in your chocolate milk powder while you sleep (I KNOW IT WAS YOU, CASPER!), but damn, for a guy whose body turned to soap after he was buried you look pretty f***ing dirty. Just sayi... / Continue →
