    This is a small series of superhero logos reimagined as neon signs by DeviantARTist 3ftdeep (which, for the record, is way too shallow to bury a body). They're not real. I don't see any reason why they couldn't be made real, but these are just renderings. My feelings for you... / Continue →

    This is a toddler's Halloween costume made out of a couple strings of LED lights. It makes them look like a little walking stickman. I love the way the kid in the video wobbles around. It's like they don't really have full control of their limbs yet. "THEY'RE A TODDLER." S... / Continue →

    This is Youtuber user treehorn89's Halloween light display synchronized to AWOLNATION's 'Sail'. Sail is one of those songs I like to listen to when I'm depressed. Which, if we're being honest, is constantly. Now I wouldn't go as far as to blame God for giving me a faulty min... / Continue →

    Because some people still dare to dream, a group of Doctor Who fans have created a petition to have the Empire State Building be lit 'TARDIS blue' (technically just regular-blue) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series on November 23rd, when we'll all gather around our ... / Continue →
