    I spy a hoverboard. First Dragon Ball moves in real life, then Vader force-choking, and now some Quidditch in real life pictures (although some just look like witches). It's weird how the internet works, isn't it? It's like, cyclical. Just one big turd-recycling series of t... / Continue →

    This is a series titled 'Water Wigs' by photographer Tim Tadder and his cohorts. It features bald men with wigs made from water as a result of thrown water balloons popping on their heads. Neat, but I still want mine made out of chocolate milk. We just finished shooting a ... / Continue →

    This is what one day of Flickr uploads -- over a million photos -- looks like printed out and piled all over the floor of an art gallery. It's...a mess. If this were my bedroom growing up there is ZERO CHANCE I would have gotten dessert with dinner. Some pretentious bullshit... / Continue →
