    You know what's cooler than being cool? Being cool in a $26 long sleeve Power Ranger t-shirt from 80'sTees. Just look at Peter Ponytail here. He's wearing thumb and index finger rings on opposite hands. And rings, as I'm sure none of you were aware, are a symbol of fertility... / Continue →

    This is a series of comic book covers designed by Brazilian artist Butcher Billy reimagining post-punk/new wave musical artists as superheroes. The Billy Idol one is my favorite and not just because I have a thing for Aquaman, or that riding a giant seahorse would be cool, but... / Continue →

    Because your dog is bad enough to have to wear a muzzle, it's probably bad enough to be humiliated at the same time. Enter the ~$25 Quack Muzzle from OPPO in Japan, it makes your dog's snout look like a duck's bill. Probably not convincing enough for your dog to get close eno... / Continue →

    This is a growing series of Pokemon reimagined as Tim Burton characters by artist Hat Boy. Is Hat Boy secretly Tim Burton in disguise? No. I mean I guess he COULD be, but he's probably not. His name's probably not even Tim. Or Hat Boy. Then who is this man of mystery?! Is... / Continue →

    Denis Medri (of rockabilly/1950's Batman and steampunk Spiderman characters fame) is back at it, this time with the cast of Star Wars reimagined as characters from a 1980's high school movie. He did well. I especially liked Han, Chewie, C-3PO and R2. Oooh -- and Obi Won and ... / Continue →

    Oh man, I used to have a buttplug with rainbow streamers coming out the end that made me look like a unicorn. I think my roommate stole it when he moved. You've probably already known about these forever because you're some kind of animal role-player in the bedroom, but you k... / Continue →

    UPDATE: Fake-ass hoax. I'm so ashamed. No -- no I'm not. I am topless though. Seen here pretending to be Condorman, Jarno Smeets takes flight by running and flapping his wings, just like an ostrich. "Ostriches can't fly." Just like a dragon. "Dragons aren't real." You k... / Continue →
