    Higher res version HERE. This is a composite shot created by photographer Mike Mezeul II of Sunday's blood moon lunar eclipse moving across the Dallas skyline. Beautiful, isn't it? It's hard to believe there's a planet so close to us. "The moon is not a planet." The moon i... / Continue →

    This is the stained glass Claptrap lamp built by DeviantARTist Darke Solace. You know, I've always wanted my own Claptrap unit. Just a buddy to to drink and dance with. Buddies can dance together, you know -- there's nothing wrong with that. But they cannot slow dance toget... / Continue →

    This is an absolutely beautiful timelapse video created by David de los Santos Gil of a bunch of different flowers blooming. It really is worth a watch. I had almost forgotten just how beautiful the world can be. I blame mainstream media for that. The only news I read anymo... / Continue →

    This is the 'Virgin Rainbow', the world's finest opal ever discovered. It's being called the Virgin Rainbow despite the fact I heard from a reliable source that it has, in fact, stuck one of its ends in a pot of gold before. Also, my source was a leprechaun, just so we're cle... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful tribute video to Hayao Miyazaki films created by Vimeo user dono using Blender, Gimp, Octane and Natron. Not to brag or anything, but I made a smoothie this morning using Blender. Ask me what I put in it. "What did you put in it?" Hairballs! Just kiddin... / Continue →

    These are several photos of a smoldering rose bouquet that's been covered in ash. It looks like a scene straight out of God Of War. It's not though, it's a real picture. I don't know, something to do with dreams or something. A quote that reads like a way-too-long motivatio... / Continue →

    This is Edge Of Stability, a timelapse created by photographer Jeff Boyce using over 70,000 photographs. I especially liked the scenes of the tornadoes forming. I remember growing up in Alabama we'd have tornado warnings in middle school and we'd all have to line up in the ha... / Continue →

    This is The Dress Of The Phoenix. I don't really have any more information than that except it looks cool and also looks long enough to comfortably wear without underwear. Unless it actually catches fire, then you're gonna wish you were wearing underwear. Right now I wish I ... / Continue →

    Seen here doing his best Dave Matthews, this is a video of pianist Andrew Johnson performing a beautiful medley of Zelda themes. It was like music to my ears. Because it was actually music to my ears. I swear, the original Legend of Zelda theme still sends chills up my spine... / Continue →
