Watch a Teddy Ruxpin Get Hacked Apart to See What Makes Him Work

by Andrew Liszewski on Sploid, shared by Adam Clark Estes to io9

this gif, i havent clicked through. just this gif i wanted everyone to see

When it first came out, Teddy Ruxpin was an expensive toy. And yet, kids lucky enough to have one but curious how he worked wouldn’t dare incur the wrath of their parents by tearing Teddy open. The folks at YouTube’s What’s Inside?, however, happily sliced the toy open to see what makes Ruxpin tick.

One Thing In Mafia III Every Game Should Steal

by Nathan Grayson

literally the only thing good about the game. it is entirely mediocre in all other aspects

Mafia III has some issues. Despite that, I’ve been enjoying my time with it. I really like losing myself in the sprawling, multifaceted city of New Bordeaux. The game’s navigation system does a great job of enabling that.

Su Blackwell’s Captivating Paper Sculptures Make Books Come To...

Su Blackwell’s Captivating Paper Sculptures Make Books Come To Life.

British artist Su Blackwell makes fiction come to life by creating her captivating paper sculptures from the pages up.  Basing each on a work of classic literature from the likes of To Kill A Mockingbird to Alice Through The Looking Glass, Blackwell collects her books from second-hand markets then meticulously recreates details from classic scenes of the novels.  The three-dimensional wonders that remain are fantastic odes to the power of literature and it’s ability to instill a sense of wonder within us.

well i love these

Kevin Cyr’s “Hommage” at Matthew Namour Gallery.

Currently on view at Matthew Namour Gallery in Montreal, Canada is artist Kevin Cyr’s solo exhibition “Hommage.”

This new series of paintings uses imagery of Montreal’s loading trucks collected by Cyr as visual representations of the entire city.  “One can tell a lot about an area by the types of vehicles seen on its streets,” says Cyr who has become recognized around the world for his photorealistic paintings featuring these vehicles floating against horizon-less backdrops that become mirrors for the unseen urban sprawl surrounding them.  Personally, his work is some of my all time favorite and genuinely continues to intrigue as well as impress me as the years go on.

Hommage” is on display until the 30th of October, 2016.

Massive Spaceship Battles Make A Very Cool MOBA

by Mike Fahey

this game is free and i played it last night and i blew up three guys ships in a row and did a full on WHOOP WHOOP in my living room

When you replace traditional arenas for the depths of space and swap out colorful characters for massive capital ships manned by crews of 5,000, suddenly the term “MOBA” feels somehow inadequate. Yet that’s what Fractured Space is. A giant spaceship MOBA.

Some UFC Guy Tries To Diss Conor McGregor, Walks Straight Into Huge Burn

by Patrick Redford on Deadspin, shared by Riley MacLeod to Kotaku

this was great. if i win some money off of the ten bucks i am going to spend on scratch tickets imma buy me a ticket to this show in nyc

Nate Diaz came at Conor McGregor online this afternoon, and while we laud his utter disdain for the man and commitment to talk smack whenever we can, he still just did some tweets. At the UFC 205 press conference this afternoon, Some UFC Guy tried to diss McGregor to his face by claiming that he did sweet knockout punches while McGregor relied on TKOs. McGregor responded to Some UFC Guy by kindly asking the crowd, “Who the fuck is that guy?”

Thank you, Miss Emma, for stepping out in an ensemble that says loud and clear, “You guys should really listen to T Lo. Those bitches know what they’re talking about.” Did we not say non-autumnal florals and bold yellows were on the trend list for the coming season? We did. And clearly Emma ran out the door as soon as she read our words and picked up this whole ensemble. In fact, pearl jewelry, like that ring, is something of a micro-trend at the moment as well. She’s checking them off a list. And hey, that’s fine by us because we think she looks really cute here. It’s asking a lot of us all to accept a marigold, pink, and olive green color combo, but we think it inexplicably works for her. The dress is a bit too twee in style for our tastes, but twee is a pitch right down the center of her style plate, so to speak. It suits her.

Tackle Your Next DIY Project With This $60 Drill Kit

by Shep McAllister on Deals, shared by Shep McAllister to Gizmodo

that is a great price for a drill

There are surely more powerful drill/drivers out there, but this 20V model from Black & Decker includes 100 accessories, and a battery that lasts for 18 months all for just $60, today only. That’s unsurprisingly an all-time low price, but this is a Gold Box deal, meaning it’s only available today, or until sold out.

This Is the Only Plausible Reason Why There Are So Many Crappy Pokémon in Pokémon Go 

by Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Adam Clark Estes to io9

i lost all my pokeballs trying to catch a zubat then magiclaly i had to make a new character one day and now i have a staryu

This Is the Only Plausible Reason Why There Are So Many Crappy Pokémon in Pokémon Go 

Ever think all you see in Pokémon Go is that stupid Pidgey bird or that dumb Ekans snake one or that ugly Zubat? There’s a simple reason for this: they obviously get carpet bombed all over the Earth to clutter your map and drain your smartphone battery. Or at least, that’s what Nixolas imagines. His hilarious and wonderful CG work on how Pokémon Go spawns the most common Pokémon is so damn good.

11 Fans Who Love Overwatch So Much, They Got Tattoos

by Cecilia D'Anastasio

such giant pieces too... oh no that widowmaker looks about ready to cry :'( when it comes to bad tattoos i cannot talk, i quite like shitty tattoos whose sole purpose is to make me giggle when i remember i have them. that being said noooooooooooooooo to these

11 Fans Who Love Overwatch So Much, They Got Tattoos

It’s no news that Overwatch is in vogue, but for some fans, the game is more than just the flavor of the week. Overwatch heroes’ elaborate backstories and compelling character design has led some players to identify with them on a deep, personal level. And what happens when people really, really like something? They get a tattoo of it!

Abigail Goldman’s “Mea Culpa” at Hashimoto Contemporary.Opening...

Abigail Goldman’s “Mea Culpa” at Hashimoto Contemporary.

Opening this Thursday, August 4th at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco, California is artist Abigail Goldman’s “Mea Culpa.”

Mea Culpa” features a series of dioramas that contain tiny worlds, each similar to our own and inhabited by figures less than an inch high. White picket fences, manicured lawns and mundane suburban settings are all found throughout Goldman’s work. However upon closer inspection, these minuscule environments are also center stage for various acts of debauchery and gore. The show is comprised of both free-standing and wall-mounted sculptures, each serving as a small window into a different reality. One sculpture depicts two women enjoying a picnic on a grassy 8-inch square island, where fragments of their “guests” can be seen sprawled across the checkered blanket. Another shows a man scrubbing his back with a loofa in the shower, facing away from the bloody figure behind him on the tiled bathroom floor. These perplexing moments create an uncomfortable tension, which in turn forms endless questions of motive and implication.

Mea Culpa” will be on view until August 27th, 2016.  Continue below to see more images of the fantastic work:

This Is Not Fine

by René



Die großartige Webcomic-Site The Nib is back und macht schon seit zwei Wochen schwer Wahlkampf, weshalb ich die Comics seit dem Neustart dort auch bislang eher so mittelinteressant fand. Jetzt hat KC Green seine eigene Meme remixt: This Is Not Fine.

Das This Is Fine-Meme basiert auf einem schon vorher ziemlich bekannten 2013er Web-Comic, das im Juli durch einen Retweet der Republikaner dann auch noch in den Wahlkampf einzog. Daher wahrscheinlich nun der Remix: This Is Not Fine.

fine2 fine3

Gleichzeitig und wohl auch nicht ganz zufällig: Ein This Is Fine-Plushy auf Kickstarter. I totally WANT!!! one.

7f19206a9d1cf51a4016f02ff05eac83_originalFrom my old webcomic "Gunshow," this dark horse of a comic rose into prominent usage among the college testing crowd and grew from there. Normally the first two panels are only seen. Brevity is the soul of wit, after all! But it continued to seep into the consciousness of America and the world as things seemingly just got... worse.

I, for one, hope there'll be a day when we no longer have to look for the dog on fire to support our feelings, but until that day comes, maybe a nice big plush of the boy will help.

We are working with Soft Stuff Creations to make this 13" tall plush of our favorite dog (his name is Question Hound, if you care to know). He comes with a nice flat butt to sit upright and quietly stare off, wall-eyed, into the middle distance. Trying to suppress it all. And he has a little plush coffee cup too, with his good catch phrase emblazoned on it.

looks like a monopoly mansion

The House XL in Slovenia by SoNo Arhitekti is situated right on the outskirts of a brand new residential neighborhood fitting enough for a family with seven members.  The area is filled with everything Slovenian urban in terms of landscape.  The concept of the home is made from two parallel volumes and a connecting volume placed perpendicular to the two.  All the volumes come in an elongated form with gable roofs that are symmetrical with the shortest volume extending to a roofed carport.  The basement is made with reinforced steel and the upper floor having cross laminated timber.

All the floor plans are utterly wide in spaces and constructed in three levels.  The living section is enclosed with big glas surfaces which open to the atrium that maintains the flow of interaction between the interior of the house and the nature that surrounds it.  The façade has big format panels and the connecting volume done lighter and the other two in darker shades of color.  The bigger glass surfaced are moved towards the inside and mixed with wood.

SoNo Arhitekti brings together a brand new generation of Slovenian architects to come up with top of the line architectural projects which emerge from a perfect mix of amazing design theories.

well that is infuriating


This judge had exactly the right reaction to the shameful way nonviolent prisoners are treated in US jails

A woman was denied pants or tampons after being arrested for not completing a diversion course that was part of her sentencing from a shoplifting charge. But see how the judge reacts when she finds out that the prisoner’s humiliating treatment is apparently routine.

It’s been helping PC users customize, tweak, tailor, and enhance their desktops for years. The cool thing is that it walks you through the process every step of the way.

Playing D&D Online Is About To Get Easier

by Cecilia D'Anastasio

fantasy grounds is stupid expensive, but this should be cool. my experience with roll20 so far has been very good. the only thing im having trouble with is finding good tiles for building my own maps.

Everything is getting uploaded, including stalwart meatspace occupant Dungeons & Dragons. Today, Roll20, an online “virtual tabletop,” announced its new licensing deal with D&D to offer the pen-and-paper RPG’s original content on their digital platform. Although D&D intellectual property is already accessible on popular digital RPG platform Fantasy Grounds, D&D’s Roll20 collaboration is the latest in the game’s quest for accessibility and social play.

M.I.A. Calls VMAs Racist, Sexist, Classist and Elitist After Being Snubbed

by Jonathan Sawyer

could it have anything to do with the fact that the song is bad? i think so. the video is cool, i liked how she made humans into a human boat, but the song is bad

Never one to shy away from what she’s thinking, M.I.A. has come out and accused the VMAs of racism, sexism, classism and elitism. The eccentric artist took to Twitter to let us all know how she really feels, after her “Borders” video missed out on a nomination.

This year’s nominees for Video of the Year include Adele, Beyoncé, Drake, Justin Bieber and Kanye West.

In further explaining her frustration, M.I.A. went on to discuss the lack of acknowledgement that her video is a clear case of silencing certain groups, showing the difference between “‘allowed’ voice[s] vs excluded voices.”

Finally, the English hip-hop artist voiced that she doesn’t need recognition from the VMAs, then linking to an Instagram post of herself helping Greek refugee children.

This of course isn’t the only drama surrounding the 2016 VMAs. It is already being reported that Kanye West will be blasting Taylor Swift during his performance of “Famous” at the live awards show.

It’s a great dress for performing and she looks great in it, although it’s just barely on this side of “too tight.” And the hair looks awfully crunchy. You could break a nail running your hand through it. But it many ways, this is a typical Katy Perry look. It’s fine, if not exciting. And we wouldn’t have wanted to see her do anything too attention-seeking at a venue like this (although we’d argue this entire look is plenty attention-seeking enough). But she’s been showing up at Hillary events all year wearing some fun patriotic-themed costumes and we were hoping for more of the same here. This is a Grammys dress. We wanted Betsy Ross drag. At least the choker is fun.

Overwatch's D.Va Is So Good Now

by Kirk Hamilton

dva is insane. i cant figure out how to play her still but i get killed by her and her super fast ult like a thousand times already. my new favorite is WINSTON, i like to kill the healers and just chase them with the big lightning gun monkey. hate his ult though

Last week Overwatch got a big update with a new character and a bunch of balance tweaks. The new sniper Ana got a lot of attention, but some of the less obvious tweaks are just as big a deal. Chief among them: A remarkably involved buff to the mech-driving pro gamer D.Va, which has transformed her into the high-flying terror I’ve always wanted her to be.
