From head-to-toe, the only way this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cosplay could have been any more authentic is if guimancreative had stacked on 30 pounds.
Behold the brand new, totally rebooted cast of Terminator Genisys. They look fine. I mean, it's a cover of a magazine — it is what it is. However, the plot reveal inside the actual magazine issue is a WHOLE OTHER FUCKING MATTER. Spoilers ahead.
Marvel announced a ton of movies yesterday , revealing the characters who'll be joining their silver-screen universe over the next five years. Some of the new heroes, however, aren't as well-known as big-leaguers like Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk. If you don't know who Captain Marvel, Black Panther and the Inhumans are, we've got a reading list that will help you learn.
One of the most intriguing things about Apple Watch is its non-orthogonal user interface, where app icons are organized in a circular, zoomable jumble. And it turns out the good old iPhone might be able to learn something about legible UI from its smaller, younger cousin.
I just saw this on Jezebel and had to share. I'm thinking we could all use a small coffee-break sized pick me up right about now and this is a visual spirit-lift (more like a blast-off) for sure: its got mini-Segway dancing, synchronized umbrella choreography, and it all looks like a giant kaleidoscope thanks to the fact that it was filmed by a drone. We're living in the future, people!
Since pretty much page one of A Game of Thrones, a terrible threat has been hanging over the land of Westeros — the Others, those supernatural butchers who raise the dead. And now at last, in his new book The World of Ice & Fire, George R.R. Martin gives us details about what would happen if the Others win. Spoilers ahead...
If you are into cooking you probably know about silicone molds. If you are not, it doesn't matter. Just look at how they peel from the cake—and then how the cake gets build into various patisserie wonders. It's such a satisfying process.
This is a British dish, if the sharp cheddar, mustard powder, cayenne and charmed name didn’t give it away. I realize that British food has long been a punching bag for other supposedly superior world cuisines, but I found this to be anything but the case. Even if I had, the awesome names of national dishes — toad in the holes, bubble and squeaks, spotted dicks, singing hinnies, jam roly-polys and doorstop sandwiches — would have more than compensated for any failures in the flavor department.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for two reasons: First of all I love horror movies and before Netflix and Amazon came along, there was always a marathon on some network leading up to the festivities of Oct.31. Also, I just love to hand out candy to children in their costumes.
I live in a pretty nice neighborhood in Los Angeles, but there aren't enough kids to come around for more than ten minutes, so it's great that children come from nearby locations to enjoy All Hallows Eve. All in all, it takes about an hour and a half of my time to fill up bags and pumpkin heads with treats. The smiles on the children knocking at my door is magical.
That's my take on Halloween, but here's another take from somebody living much better than most of America writing in to the Slate's "Dear Prudence" column:
It's been ages since I've exercised this much control over the music in a rhythm game, and I've never felt so sore after doing it.
OMG HOVERBOARDS FOR REAL
Hendo Hover of Los Gatos, California has created HENDO, a real-life hoverboard that uses magnetic fields to hover one inch off the ground above special surfaces. The company has also launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to build development kits for the board and help create areas to ride them. While the project invokes a certain iconic 1980s film sequel, HENDO is careful not to mention that project by name.
Yep, there was a movie. However, our attorneys have told us not to go there. So this is as far as we’ll take it.

“Cat circles“, the amazing phenomenon in which a cat will deliberately sit in a circle on the floor, has been a subject of discussion on a thread on reddit. The original thread, started by admancb featured photos by guremike, who lays out the process very simply with his own cat as the subject.
Et voilá, a cat circle is made. Here are some other examples from around the world.
Yet I adore harissa, a Northwest African chile pepper paste with red peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic, coriander, caraway. Of course, when a condiment is used everywhere from Tunisia and Libya to Algeria and Morocco, you’re bound to find as many versions of it as there likely are people who make it, so there are recipes with cumin, lemon juice or even smoked chiles. There’s no one correct way to make it.
let's keep trying to be more like this?
Maybe you see beautiful, clutter-free spaces in magazines or on the web, and think: my home could never look like that. But it can! Freeing your space — and your life — from overwhelmingly huge amounts of stuff doesn't take superhuman effort. All you need is a little commitment to some basic principles.
We might just have a new contender for the title of most Borderlands boss in the history of Borderlands bosses.
Fall of Gods is an "illustrated book" that tells the story of a Norse warrior who, having lost his wife, sets out on an epic journey to get her back. By fighting a ton of monsters.
Half-Life turns sixteen this year. It's likely older than some of you. Yet, aged graphics aside, it's still one of the best games—or rather, one of the best experiences—the PC has to offer. There's a couple reasons why.
Holy shit new Sleater-Kinney music for the first time in a decade. Today, Sleater-Kinney released "Bury Our Friends" and announced a new record, No Cities to Love, to be released in January. Oh and a tour. I'm so excited that I'm actually considering going to see their show at Terminal 5, New York's most loathsome club, just to get my ears exploded again.
OMG that is awesome.
The Human Hamster Wheel may be the most insane standing desk created to date. Is it crazy or genius? You decide:
When I was a kid, I had a huge keychain collection. Why on Earth I felt I needed so many keychains, or why I decided to start collecting them in the first place is absolutely beyond me, but nevertheless I loved that jingly ball of metal. I'm starting to find that my own daughter is beginning to gather collections of her own — shiny rocks, plastic princesses, and sticks, to name a few.
