    This is 'Angel', a hyper-realistic sculpture created by Beijing artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu to resemble their concept of a fallen angel. Well I can certainly see why the angel fell -- it doesn't have any feathers. You can't expect to fly with those uncooked hot wings! It wa... / Continue →

    This is a hummingbird feeder that's incorporated into a $80 flowery mask. You leave it outside for awhile to let the birds get used to it, then put that sucker on one day and sit still while the hummers come to feed right between your eyes. INTENSE! Reminds me of the time I ... / Continue →

    This is the larger than full-scale R2-D2 quadrocopter built by Otto Dieffenbach (who also made that awesome Snoopy one) to show off at San Diego Comic-Con, which apparently started today and doesn't start July 30th like I thought, which explains why it was so easy to book a che... / Continue →

    These are a handful of shots captured by avian photographer Phoo Chan of a crow riding on the back of a bald eagle. That is certainly something you don't see everyday. Something I don't see everyday? Another human being. Just let that sink in while I talk to a pillow I drew... / Continue →

    This is a video of Red Bull stunt pilots Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones barnstorming (technically hangarstorming) side by side at 185MPH, caught from a bunch of different angles and in beautiful slow motion. They must really trust each other. Also, maybe it's true after all th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a stunt pilot taking his four-year old daughter Léa out for her first aerobatic flight. She really gets into it and giggles her face off. Me? I couldn't do it. I only fly out of necessity. It is not something I could ever do for pleasure. Mostly because... / Continue →

    This is a video of Bilbo (wrong franchise!) the barn owl flying a couple's wedding rings down the aisle during their marriage ceremony. Previously: this owl that was supposed to do the same thing but flew up to the rafters and laughed at the couple instead. This one goes a lo... / Continue →
