    This is the R/C quadrocopter outfitted with a custom glowing eyes ghost costume built by Alton Porter to scare trick-or-treaters this year (previously: this less impressive one). That would probably work on me. I'm not that afraid of people because I'm a really quick shooter/... / Continue →

    This is a video from a Brazilian television show where unsuspecting victims are riding a fake elevator when all of a sudden the lights flicker off, and a ghost girl (who looks like a little sister from Bioshock) appears out of nowhere (actually a secret door in the wall) and yo... / Continue →

    Okay, so "terrifying" might have been a giant overstatement. MY BAD. I can't help it if I have a flair for the dramatic. *flourishing cape* "Stop that." Not until you acknowledge I'm naked underneath and you saw the goods. This is Haunted Beauty Ghost Barbie, the first in... / Continue →

    This is a video of a piece of red scarf dancing around in the air vortex artist David Wertzel created with a bunch of fans. It's pretty mesmerizing to watch, and several times you'd swear it was a ghost. So I guess it could even be considered erotic for those of you that are ... / Continue →

    This is promo commercial for the BBC's upcoming series, 'Superpower', a show airing this month which will investigate the ways in which the interwebs are transforming the world. It's narrated by what I thought was a ghost-alien at first, but actually turned out to be A PERSON ... / Continue →

    I see you there, little ghost. You can't hide from me. Sure you've managed to every time I've tried for the past 14 years (you're so elusive!), but one of these days, one of these days. You know what the problem is? I always get told I'm "too nice". Really? Well I can't b... / Continue →

    I can never see the word "balaclava" without thinking baklava, which is totally different but infinitely more delicious and arguably my favorite dessert. Now I know what you're thinking, "but GW, I don't care what your favorite dessert is". But you know what? It's too f***in... / Continue →

    This is a pixelated Ghost Pirate LeChuck tattoo in the style of the original Monkey Island. It's badass and if my balls were any more steel I would have it on my face. Sadly, my little pirate huevos are 24K gold AND BLIND YOUR MOTHER ALL THE TIME. Oh, and for those of you wh... / Continue →

    Want a pet ghost but too big a wuss to kill somebody in your own house? Well you're in luck, because now you can buy bottled ghosts for a scant $20. Just don't drink them! Each Ghost is captured from a reported haunted establishment, (house, hotel, ship, cemetery, etc), by o... / Continue →

    Some BBC employee allegedly took a picture of a ghost at a museum in England. This is the picture, and, quite frankly, I just don't see it. Unless it's an Arab smoking a hookah with a hand down his pants. That I can see. Mr Sandys, 30, was photographing at the reputedly hau... / Continue →

    Hopside Down is a beer glass by Fred & Friends that looks like an inverted bottle. It hurts my brain just to look at and I couldn't imagine myself successfully drinking out of it without pouring beer in my shoes. Still, maybe there are a few of you out there that are more ski... / Continue →

    The brainiacs at MIT have gone and created a 'sixth sense' device, which is basically a smart phone/camera/projector combo small enough to be worn on your face like my fist. KA-POW! Also, it does stuff, and won't leave you bruised. The device...can turn any surface into a to... / Continue →

    This is a $26 t-shirt from 80'stees that makes you look like Dr. Peter Venkman, Ghostbuster. Plus, the slime glows so even in a dark bar people will know you just got slimed. Or had sex with an alien. In which case, high five. Product Page via Ghostbusters Uniform T-Shirt [... / Continue →

    Okay, so the wave of literal translations of music videos continues. This time it's Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up, aka the Rick Roll song in case you've been a vegetable for the past year and just came to. And, if that is the case, it's good to have you back. But tel... / Continue →

    Just in time for Halloween comes a DIY article on how to stuff an LED into a LEGO minifig's carved out head. It isn't too complicated, so if you have some LEDs lying around you could make a pretty sweet LEGO Halloween diorama tonight and be ready for tomorrow. And, honestly, ... / Continue →

    This is a short film called Pac-Man: The Movie. It's told from the ghosts perspective, by four people running around in colored trash bags. I thought it was pretty cute. Not baby bunny cute, mind you, but definitely cuter than unidentifiable roadkill. Youtube Thanks to N... / Continue →

    Hailing all the way from Thailand, this commercial was made for Sylvania by ad agency JEH United and has it all -- a picnicking family, ghosts, a guy who may or may not be a member of the Blue Man Group, and a transvestite. Advertising people, take note: this is how you sell ... / Continue →

    Using 448 LEDs and a controller unit, this guy modded his Roomba into Pacmba, the Pac-Man Vacuum. It's fairly awesome, but nowhere near as awesome as the Donkba, my Donkey Kong Roomba. Say, who ate the last of my bananas? F***ing Donkba! I swear I'm gonna kick -- whoa now,... / Continue →

    I watched this video a couple of times so needless to say I'm making this post from under the bed. It's allegedly a video of a ghost in a Singapore hotel's elevator (let it load and skip to 1:20 to see the goods). I'm sure it's fake as all hell. Right? It's fake right? Goo... / Continue →
