    Because Guardians of the Galaxy is the hot shit right now (I've seen it 14 times already because I live in the sewers below a movie theater like a cross between a ninja turtle and the Phantom of the Opera), this is the Groot costume made by Calen Hoffman of Propcustomz. Clearl... / Continue →

    This is 'Kiddie Arts', a series of digital paintings by Dutch artist Telmo Pieper inspired by the drawings he made when he was four. Clearly, his technique has improved significantly since then. Have I ever told you in kindergarten I got an 'Unsatisfactory' in coloring becaus... / Continue →

    This is the stunning Calvin & Hobbes time-traveling dinosaur scene that artist and mother Laura Hartrich of Etsy store Tiny Scissor Times embroidered for her son's birthday. It is most impressive. You know, when I was in middle school my mom embroidered my initials into the b... / Continue →

    Look out, there's a chupacabra behind you! This is a video of juggler and ringler Lindzee Poi performing more amelymeloptical illusions with his rings (previously: this one). Only this time he's doing the tricks blind. "OMG, what happened to him?!" Calm down, he didn't put ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Italian police officers performing a synchronized motorcycle routine in Rome in the 1950's. They do a great job. Way better than the guy who was trying to split lanes when I was waiting at a stop light the other day. It's cool bro, I didn't even like that ... / Continue →

    This is a video of hula hoopspert Rachael Lust showing off all her hooping tricks and stunts. Clearly she has been practicing. I actually didn't learn to hula hoop until two summers ago. I just tried it one night when I was drunk and finally understood how to do it. Then th... / Continue →

    This is a video of bartender Po Hseng Hsu, who's been dubbed the Bruce Lee of flair bartending. He does have some pretty cool tricks, I especially like when he spins the bottle on the cup. I could watch stuff like this all day, just as long as that's not my drink I'm waiting ... / Continue →

    Because it's Monday but when I woke up I thought it was Sunday, here's a video of a beatboxing goat. I'm pretty sure it's fake though, people in the Youtube comments were saying the cameraman is moving its head and making the sounds. That would make it way less impressive. I... / Continue →

    Hey so I puked on my feet in the shower this morning so if I disappear at any point today it's probably because I went to go do it again. Call an ambulance if you don't hear from me but make up a fake name and do NOT let them take me to the hospital because I don't have the mo... / Continue →

    This is a small series of anatomical body art created by Danny Quirk (sweet last name) using latex and Sharpies. Wow, who knew Sharpies could be used for more than just drawing penises on the foreheads of passed out frienemies? Not I! Yes, yes I did. They also make a great ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a handful of batsuit gliders flying around like lunatics narrowly avoiding death. I encourage you all to live 2013 the same way these nutjobs dive off mountains pretending they're flying squirrels: with gusto. Like a wise old man at the bar once told me, 'Y... / Continue →

    This is a video of Geekologie Reader Simon spending a lot of time and effort to build a 12-pound warhammer for a friend's birthday, making him a far better friend than any of mine. "Because you don't have any?" GOOD ONE, DINGLEBERRY. Did you come up with that one all by your... / Continue →

    I know the screencap is kind of blurry, but those are guns in the air. Also, THE LEAST COOL PLACE I CAN THINK OF TO PERFORM YOUR METAL GEAR SOLID GUNSPINNING ROUTINE. "Hey mom -- don't come in the living room for the next five minutes." God, go outside and stand in front of ... / Continue →

    I know, the screencaps I so lovingly slapped together wound up looking like shit and offer little to no explanation of what's going on. That was my bad. Basically, photographers took a whole bunch of cameras, mounted them on a long horizontal platform, then had them all snap ... / Continue →

    Napolean Dynamite deleted scenes. This is a video of a girl with a jian sword and her brother/lover from the same mother with a butterfly knife (plus sweet haircut!) "dancing" while their grandma sips a Budweiser and watches her grandchildren almost stab the butterball of a fa... / Continue →

    This is a video of tetromino trickster John Schuepbach building a (relatively) color-accurate Luigi in a game of Tetris. He ends up clearing 499 lines in the process though because, well, it isn't an easy one. Now I'm not saying I could have done it in less, because God and I... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for a higher-res shot that does the house more justice. This is a sickly amazing LEGO build by Mike Doyle of an abandoned Victorian house that's been crushed by a tree. And speaking of getting crushed by trees: people who have sex with Ents. TIIIIIIIIIIIII... / Continue →
