Five Thirty Eight Breaks Down the Statistics of Bob Ross Paintings

by Brian Heater

Bob Ross Stats

Statistical analysis site Five Thirty Eight has analyzed the artwork of Joy of Painting host Bob Ross, discovering that 91-percent of the works he created on the show featured at least one of the “happy trees” for which he is remembered. Author Walt Hickey further breaks down the 381 episodes on which Ross painted by conditional probability — i.e., what is the likelihood that he painted another object after he painted a first.

There’s a 93-percent chance that Ross paints a second tree given that he has painted a first […] Ross was also amenable to painting friends for mountains. Sixty-percent of paintings with one mountain in them have at least two mountains.

It's a Shame To Think These 3D Milled Ice Cubes Will Melt Away

You can find silicone ice cube moulds for everything from perfect spheres to gummy bears these days. But if you're throwing a dinner party and really want to impress your guests, nothing says "I have too much money and free time" like using a 3D milling machine to sculpt a frozen drink-chilling masterpiece like this.

If George R.R. Martin Wrote Mad Men

by John Farrier
Chelsea

also totally into the megan/sharon tate stuff (spoilers): http://www.vulture.com/2014/04/serial-killer-expert-analyzes-mad-men-for-clues.html

Joy of Tech imagines a great re-telling of Mad Men that would make the characters more treacherous.

Pete Campbell as Joffrey? That seems unfair to Pete, though I’m far, far behind on Mad Men, so I don’t know what’s he’s been up to lately.

These Food Art Birds Are Ready to Fly off Your Plate

by John Farrier

Anna Keville Joyce is a food stylist and photographer. It's an art form that I've become aware of only in the past few years. Masters of it like Joyce can create arresting images like these. With carefully sliced, chopped, and arranged foods, she's made birds that look both realistic and tasty. You can view more works in her portfolio here.

Political Cartoon Comes to Life

by Miss Cellania

(Image credit: Lalo Alcaraz)

In 2002, cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz drew a political cartoon about sports teams and fans who use disrespectful Native American names, mascots, and imagery. Ann Boobus remembered the cartoon when she saw this picture.



(Image credit: Peter Pattakos)

The resemblance is uncanny and uncomfortable. Last Friday, this picture was taken outside Progressive Field before the Cleveland Indians home opener. Protesters from the American Indian Movement were outside the arena to urge the team to remove Chief Wahoo as its mascot, and were confronted by a Cleveland fan in full dress. Twelve years is a long time for such an issue to still be unresolved, but the controversy has been going much longer. -via Metafilter

WATCH: Sony Made a Volcano Spew 8 Million Flower Petals for Its New Commercial

by James St. James
Chelsea

reminds me of the rose petal tent :D

… and it looks AMAZING. The McCann Advertising Agency commissioned photographer Nick Meek to promote Sony’s new 4K TV with this incredible artistic statement. Apparently, it took the creative team and the inhabitants of an entire village in Costa Rica over two weeks to pluck all the petals of the brightest, most vibrant flowers they could find. Some on YouTube are calling it “an incredible waste of resources, time, and money” and saying things like:  ”Really sad that an campaign causes so much environmental damage just for an ad when there’s already so much beauty in the world.” I suppose, but this is JUST MAGNIFICENT. I mean, the flowers were going to die eventually ANYWAY. And the petals are all biodegradable, so what’s the problem? I’d love my village (Larchmont, btw) to be covered in flowers. (via WeTheUrban)

From the YouTube description:

As flowers erupt majestically from a volcano and sweep through Costa Rica’s vibrant landscape, the ad conveys the emotional power of seeing Ultra HD for the first time and experiencing the deeper, more natural tones of the unique TRILUMINOS Display showing more of the colour spectrum.

Everything was shot in 4K with Sony’s revolutionary F55 and F65 cameras, as used on movies Oblivion and After Earth.

Director Jaron Albertin said, “I was really excited to be shooting this ad in 4K in such an amazing location… when I saw the final footage, I was stunned – it just produces really amazing, detailed images… you can see the tiniest detail.”
