    Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida, has just announced an Indiana Jones themed bar coming this fall. I am probably the most excited a person can be about it, especially considering I'll probably never go. Florida Man has it out for me, and that guy means BUSINESS. Jock Lind... / Continue →

    This is a video news report about a construction crane that toppled over at the Dallas Museum of Art while erecting a tent. Onlookers mistook the precariously tilted crane for a new art installation, and I would have done the same thing. I mean, who's to say it's not art? Lo... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful stop-motion video created by animator Jon Rolph of an artist (presumably himself) producing a Mondrian replica by painting with LEGO bricks. You know, I wish I had the patience to make stop-motion videos because I have some GOOD IDEAS. "Let's hear them." ... / Continue →

    This is the $32 Melting Toht Candle available from Firebox. As it burns, it looks more and more like brutal Gestapo agent Arnold Ernst Toht as his face melts off at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the Nazis open the Ark of the Covenant and suffer the wrath of God. T... / Continue →

    FAKE! The shadows are all wrong. You can tell it's fake because the Enterprise is way f***ing bigger than that. This is a series of thrift store paintings purchased by Dave Pollot, who adds value to them by painting in his own sci-fi and other pop culture characters. You c... / Continue →

    Death Mask This is 'Alliance Is Rebellion', a series of characters and vehicles from Star Wars imagined as traditional Northwest Coast Indian art by Scott Erickson (links to his website with prints for sale). Good job, Scott. I love the style of Northwest Coast art, something... / Continue →

    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 →
