    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 Barisieur, a fancy coffee brewing alarm clock that looks like a mini meth lab designed and built by Josh Renouf. Because when you wake up, you need coffee, and you need it f***ing NOW. Not a bad idea (just not as good as an IV on a timer that starts injecting coff... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bunch of old historical photos that have been carefully colored to add new life to the shots. I'm pretty sure I'd already seen a bunch of them before, but it was nice to have them all in video form so you can just sit back and enjoy. Plus there's a little... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger version HERE in case you want to experience the wrath of God in higher def. This is a shot of lightning striking Chicago's three tallest buildings (the Willis Tower, Trump Tower and John Hancock Building) simultaneously on the evening of June 30th, 2014. ... / Continue →

    This is the stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / Continue →

    This is a video of a mariachi band performing the Gerudo Valley theme from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time at a wedding. That sounds like a pretty promising wedding. My friends Rob and Jackie's? I bet they break up before they even send Save The Dates. Per Youtuber Chr... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Dan Newbie performing Super Mario Bros. themes using 48 wine glasses, two pencils and a frying pan. It sounded very pretty. Kinda reminded me of visiting the Caribbean. Granted I've never been, but in my mind that is what it would sound like. And... / Continue →

    This is a video from German watchmaker Nomos Glashütte of one of their modern watches being assembled. It was a treat to watch(!), mostly because I've always been fascinated with watchmaking (and collect vintage Doxas). Everything is so small. Did you know the jewels in a wa... / Continue →

    This is the Bradley, a $195 - $275 watch designed to be read by the blind, but one that's also sleek enough for anybody to want to wear. Hell, I can see 20/20 and I still want one. Hey Terry, eat shit you f***ing monster! *squinting* Wait -- is this not my Google Chat box? ... / Continue →

    These are the Nebula rugs printed using photos of actual nebulae available from SCHÖNSTAUB. They make three varieties: Nebula MOB3915, Nebula NGC346 and Nebula HEIC0607A. Amazingly, Nebula HEIC0607A is actually my favorite nebula in the whole universe. Unfortunately, the rug... / Continue →

    So it's April Fools' Day and my inbox is jam-packed with fake stories people either think are real or are trying to trick me into posting. I've been sifting through them all morning. The only April Fools' prank worth pulling involves faking your own death. So unless you're w... / Continue →

    OMG, SO MANY BUTTONS TO PUSH! This is a worthwhile video (at least skip around) of Jelani Eddington performing the Star Wars main theme on one of the largest pipe organs in the world, a Wurlitzer theater organ with some 8,000-pipes. For reference, I only have one pipe. "Your... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Carnegie Hall Ensemble Orchestra performing 43 separate cartoon theme songs in five minutes. Just a bit of each song though, not the whole thing. That would have taken way longer. Like me getting dressed this morning. "You still only have one pant leg... / Continue →

    Listen: I don't get paid for posting these GoPro videos. I just post them because they're interesting. I am not endorsing GoPro. At least not until they send me a camera durable enough to survive the amateur sex tape I've been planning. You ever seen a p0rno with extreme st... / Continue →

    If you haven't seen it already, this is a video of a dolphin stampede and humpback whale migration caught by aerial drone cameras operated by Captain Dave's Whale and Dolphin Safari. Apparently Captain Dave sunk one drone after flying it into the boat's antenna. Captain Ron n... / Continue →

    This is a video of The Harp Twins (Camille and Kennerly Kitt) performing Hedwig's Theme on dual harps. Plus they do some magic and frolic through the woods a little bit. You know, they both kind of remind me of girls from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. Remember the little bl... / Continue →

    This is a video of a girl performing the Super Mario theme on a sheng, an ancient Chinese instrument that dates back as far as 1100 BC. It sounds like it was MADE to perform the theme. It wasn't though, because the Super Mario theme didn't exist until 1985. That's a 3,085 ye... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. This is the portrait of famed animator Hayao Miyazaki created by DeviantARTist C3nmt using Miyazaki's movie characters. I'm actually playing through Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's PS3 game 'Ni No Kuni' right now, and it's like living in one ... / Continue →
