July 22, 2021

In an effort to get people back into museums, Pornhub (yes that Pornhub) has produced a "Classic Nudes" museum guide (the page is SFW but the URL is Pornhub so click at your own discretion).

From orgies to outdoor, and even a little bit of nipple play, prepare to savor in every stroke of these surprising masterpieces with audio commentary by Asa Akira and a special surprise by MySweetApple at the end of each tour. Select a museum below to start discovering their collection of Pornhub-worthy paintings and sculptures.

The guide covers thirty famous works across six major institutions including the National Gallery in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Prado in Madrid, the Uffizi in Florence, and the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay in Paris. It features audio tours, articles, and annotated maps, as well as some NSFW "recreations" of some of the pieces, though those were just hit with a cease and desist by the Louvre and may or may not still be up by the time you're reading this.

You can check out the "Classic Nudes" site here. Again, the URL is Pornhub and some of the pages do include NSFW recreations of the art and also obviously the art itself is nekkid so, ya know, exercise caution when clicking.

Cybathlon pits technically assisted pilots against each other

July 22, 2021

The Cybathlon is a multi-sport international competition in which people with physical disabilities compete against each other to complete everyday tasks using state-of-the-art technical assistance. It's basically an excuse to create enhancements in assistive technology and a nice showcase for the current state of the industry. Also, cyborgs competing against cyborgs. Plus the competitions are quite riveting and there's nothing quite like hearing an announcer get super stoked about somebody stacking cups or putting on a jacket.

Keep going from some videos from the 2020 event, including an event called the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Race where pilots with quadriplegia steer a car in a computer game using nothing but brain signals.

This golden bathtub rolls itself onto the balcony

July 22, 2021

bathtub-balcony-hotel.jpg

At the hotel Auberge aux 4 Vents in Fribourg, Switzerland, a gold painted bathtub on rails is available for guests to use that automatically rolls out to the balcony.

The luxurious bath was shared by Felix Unholz, as he sat in the tub whilst it rolled out of a window onto a small balcony specially designed for the bath.

As the windows opened he rolled out with a full bath of bubbly water to relax in, whilst he admired the stunning Swiss countryside from his room on the second floor.

Felix said: "We saw the hotel room on the internet, we instantly knew that we had to stay there for a night.

I keep picturing somebody using this not realizing it rolls onto the balcony. Like they're in the middle of a bath and suddenly it just starts rolling out like some Japanese prank show and next thing they know they're naked in front of a bunch of strangers eating brunch.

Keep going for the full video as well as some Japanese prank show videos of what I mean. Emphasis on mean.

This three minute animation was made entirely alone over three years

July 20, 2021

puparia.jpg

Puparia is a three minute animation that was made entirely alone by Japanese animator Shingo Tamagawa over three years. I have no idea what it means, but I love this kind of dedication and the end result is pretty stunning even if it isn't the most narratively coherent thing. Three years also seems a bit long, but then I remember it took me four years to finish assembling my Ikea desk so I get it. Perfection takes time and sometimes perfection is a bit wobbly and leans to one side.

Keep going for the full video as well as a 20 minute video portrait about the man who made it.

Lunar transit of the International Space Station

July 19, 2021

This is clear and stable footage of the International Space Station transiting the moon on July 16, 2021 taken using only an iPhone 12 Pro and an eyepiece from a telescope.

Here is a slo-mo video of the July 16 lunar transit of the international space station (ISS) taken with my iPhone 12 Pro close-coupled to the 16mm eyepiece of my Questar 3.5 telescope. A lucky capture, as the ISS appeared only 3 degrees below the moon before the transit began, with the entire sequence lasting less than seven seconds.

The video is exactly what it says but I recommend watching on mute since there's a noise at the end that appears to be the call of Cthulhu and kind of ruins the wondrous nature of the whole thing.

Keep going for the video.

Dash cam captures flying Dukes of Hazzard car crash

July 19, 2021

flying-car-crash-dash-cam.jpg

This is dash cam footage of a car flying, and I mean flying, through the sky before crashing and rolling in what can only be described as a failed attempt at launching their car into space?

Saved by THE Scream!! Non-fatality Dukes of Hazard Launch on an overpass berm! Scary way to start the day, especially for the lady in that car! I prayed for her and hope all will be well.

I'm assuming the driver's first thought was that he was being attacked by some sort of new car-based projectile weapon? Where instead of firing bullets or missiles, the enemy just launches cars at you? I still don't even understand how this accident happened. From what I can tell there's not even a street running in the direction the car comes flying. The skeptic in me wonders if this was staged to go viral since we never actually see a passenger exit the vehicle.

Keep going for the full ridiculous video. It'd be hard to believe if there wasn't footage of it happening.

2021 Audubon Photography Awards: Video Category Winner

July 16, 2021

hawk-head-stabilization.jpg

This is the 2021 Audubon Photography Awards winner in the Video Category and it shows a Red-tailed Hawk hovering in the sky with unreal head stabilization.

Story Behind the Shot: Over several days I watched a pair of Red-tails taking advantage of the strong early summer winds streaming down from the Rockies, hovering in midair while scanning the foothills for mice and ground squirrels. This one floated almost level with my lens. His head stayed still while his body moved, his wings and tail steadying him and his dangling feet acting as ballast.

Bird Lore: Red-tailed Hawks most often hunt from a raised perch, as flying low enough to scan for prey usually requires more flapping and more energy. At times, however, wind conditions are such that they can hang motionless, hardly moving their wings, resting in the air as they study the ground below.

The video looks so unnatural it seems like a glitch in the Matrix. The bird hovering in the air is weird enough, but the way the head remains so perfectly still is unnerving. It's the same way security stares at me whenever I walk into a store or a museum or a woman's changing room.

Keep going for the full video.

Kevin Parry magically turning into things

July 15, 2021

magically-turning-into-things.jpg

This is a compilation of stop-motion animator Kevin Parry magically turning into things. They're incredibly effective and well done and probably more convincing than anything you've seen in a Hollywood movie. I just need to somehow harness his visual effects magic to make my penis appear larger in videos. I mean, uh, smaller. To make it appear smaller. It's already too big.

Keep going for the full video as well as a bunch of behind the scenes videos showing how he does it.
