You're a space beetle careening toward a confrontation with a futuristic giant head. That's the premise of Thumper, an upcoming music game from Brian Gibson, bassist of tooth-rattling classic Lightning Bolt, and Seoul-based programmer Mark Flury. Read the rest

Rare ‘Magic Rabbit’ from China spotted for the first time in 20 years

Rare ‘Magic Rabbit’ from China spotted for the first time in 20 years

Apparently, you don’t have to go to a galaxy far, far away to see Ewoks. In the Tian Shan Mountains of China, researchers have spotted the elusive Ili Pika, an adorable creature which hasn’t been seen in two decades. Discovered back in 1983 by conservationist Li Weidong, he named the rare mammal after his hometown, and not after Pikachu.

The so-called ‘magic bunny’ measures about eight inches long and is a distant relative of the rabbit. It has eluded research teams for decades, sneaking in and out of cliffs, avoiding getting photographed. Until now.

Li, on another one of his Pika spotting expeditions, was able to snap the photos above. According to him, the species numbered around 2,900 at the time of their discovery. Now, their numbers are down to less than a thousand, most likely due to human activity and climate change.

‘I discovered the species, and I watched as it became endangered. If it becomes extinct in front of me, I’ll feel so guilty’, said Li. He hopes that the Ili Pika’s mountain ranges would soon be declared a nature reserve to help their species survive and thrive again.

This cat looks like a mad scientist with eyes that can stare deep into your soul

This cat looks like a mad scientist with eyes that can stare deep into your soul

Watch out Grumpy Cat, there’s a new feline in town. Atchoum is a nine-month-old cat from Quebec, Canada who suffers from hypertrichosis, a condition in which he experiences excessive hair growth. Basically, bad hair day every day for his entire life. His disheveled hair and those bright yellow eyes make him look like a mad scientist with a death stare.

Villainous appearance aside, his owner says Atchoum is a lovable cat who enjoys taking naps, baths, and reaping the souls of a thousand babies (Ok, maybe I lied about the thing about the babies).

You can stare death straight in the eyes see more of Atchoum on Facebook and Instagram, where he has already amassed more than 13,000 adoring followers and evil cat worshipers.

Magic Mushrooms In Stop Motion Action Will Leave You Breathless

by Stephanie Young

Generally speaking, mushrooms are fascinating organisms. As part of the fungi family, they are neither plant nor animal and have an incredible capacity for growth. As evidenced in these stop motion gifs, we witness the mushroom cap or fruit, sprouting out of the ground in various shapes and sizes. The fruit is made up of 92% water allowing for its rapid maturity and part of the fungi you would normally throw onto pizza and salad. It’s this top section, which makes for an interesting visual specimen, as seen here in phallic, veiled and bumpy shapes, credited to nature’s grand design. The part you don’t see, called the root or mycelium, can remain dormant and underground for years. These are the real heroes, acting as nature’s garbage disposals, devouring all that is dead and decaying. Some fungi lore to speak of, includes the toadstool known for its red color, and white dotted spores. Those who grew up playing Nintendo, will remember these colorful blobs as part of the landscape in Super Mario Bros. and incarnate to “Toad” a figure in the game. Psilocybin or “magic mushrooms” are the rebels. In existence since prehistoric times, the fungi first appeared during the mesolithic period as evidenced on rock paintings taken from archaeological finds. Known for its pleasant, hallucinatory effects, studies have shown psilocybin can not only give you a nice high but help with OCD and clinical depression. (via boredpanda

Romania-based architecture collective visualSKIN arrived at the Amsterdam Light Festival with a splash this year, installing a three-dimensional projection of a 17-century ship against a backdrop of water. Titled ‘Ghost Ship,‘ the installation makes use of two intersecting images projected onto perpendicular curtains of water that can be viewed from multiple angles. The piece is in reference to a Dutch East India Company ship, The Amsterdam, that was wrecked in a storm during its maiden voyage to Batavia in 1749.

In a fortunate coincidence, and unbeknownst to visualSKIN beforehand, Ghost Ship also rests on the former site of a large water fountain designed by sculptor Albert P. Termote that was removed more than a decade ago. You can see more views of the installation right here. (via Designboom)

Sketchbook: A Year in Jerusalem

by Jaanelle Pichaco






Ever feel homesick for a place you're not even from? I never visited Jerusalem, but these drawings feel like old memories of somewhere I haven't been yet. The artist is Vincent Mah�, a Parisian who spent a year in Jerusalem and brought it back with him in a sketchbook. His sketches include the big touristy sites everyone knows, but also the empty streetsides and tops of buildings that you don't normally see in photos. There's something captivating about the simple lines�-the way he creates shadows with them, the way the drawing seamlessly becomes less detailed the further away from the focus point.

The Restaurant of 10,000 Bones (Probably not for Vegetarians)

HNNNNGGGGGGGGHHHHHH

bones2

When it comes to restaurants, for me, the ambiance and decor is just as important as the food and I particularly enjoy it when a restaurant feeds me some serious home décor inspiration wherever I look in between mouthfuls. But this sock-knocking restaurant I stumbled upon really gives you something to chew on. Hueso restaurant is a reason to make it to Mexico’s Guadalajara city if you aren’t there already. In the quirky design district, a culinary cabinet of curiosities like you’ve never seen before awaits from Mexican architect Diaz Morales. Hueso, means bone– because they’re absolutely everywhere, 10,000 of them to be precise, mounted on the walls, displayed on the tables and stacked inside little nooks, all cast from aluminium– animal lovers take a breathe.

So for those of us who can’t make a booking for Friday night, let’s take an ogle around…

Kid's Sparkling Wine Idea Fails Miserably

by tastefullyoffensive.com
Brianrhart

I've always been tempted to try this, good thing youtube exists.


Plenty of people use Soda Streams to turn regular water into sparkling water, so Noah thought he was sitting on a brilliant idea when he decided to do the same thing with red wine. He filled up his machine with a nice Nouveau and gave the Soda Stream a few long presses. Unfortunately the brilliant idea didn't pan out and the wine exploded all over Noah, the kitchen, and the ceiling.


Bonus: Here's a compilation of Soda Stream Fails

Fascinating Portraits Of Criminals Covered In Russian Prison Tattoos

by Sara Barnes

Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files23 Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files2 Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files4 Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files9

Tattoos, historically, have been on the bodies of sailors and prisoners. It’s only in relatively recent years that they’ve entered mainstream society and lost some of their negative social stigma. Arkady Bronnikov collected photographs of tattooed Russian prisoners between the mid-1960s and mid-1980s. The amount he obtained was massive – 918 images worth –  thanks to his position in the government. As a senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs for over 30 years, part of Bronnikov’s duties involved visiting correctional institutions of the Ural and Siberia regions. He interviewed, gathered information, and photographed convicts and their tattoos, which gradually helped him build this comprehensive archive.

The images were later acquired by FUEL, a London-based design group, in 2013. Some of the photographs and official police papers authored by Bronnikov from the Soviet period will be published by FUEL in two volumes, the first of which was just released. Now, they are part of a current exhibition titled FUEL present: Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files at Grimaldi Gavin in London until November 22 of this year.

When these photos were taken, Bronnikov wasn’t concerned with composition or style. They were meant to act as a record and served a purely practical purpose. The gallery explains, “Their bodies display an unofficial history, told not just through tattoos, but also in scars and missing digits. Closer inspection only confirms our inability to comprehend the unimaginable lives of this previously unacknowledged caste.
