Some people have diaries near their beds to write down the dreams they had. Photographer Ronen Goldman we assume, has a camera. For his “The Surrealistic Pillow Project,” the photographer tries to recreate his dreams, exhilarating, bizarre or nightmarish as they may be. Of course, bringing dreams into reality may sometimes require a touch of image manipulation, but the Israel based photographer tries to use these tools as rarely as possible.
The automaton monkey is hooked to cigarettes. Somebody get the monkey some weed.
There is no easy way to curving wood when you’re thinking furniture. But why get into so much trouble when there is something as easy as used wine barrels available. Made by Stil Novo design in California, the furniture is made from French oak sourced from wine barrels. The barrels used are those that have no use left in wine manufacturing, so they are recycled into this impressive furniture.
For a life filled with adventure, injuries are a minor thing. But you can be sure someone will come up to ask about the bandage, so just put on one of these that explain why you’re wearing them in the first place. Costs $7.
Mario has spread a zombie infection throughout the mushroom kingdom, taking his friends down with him. I guess Bowser’s the hero now.
America’s finest news source, TheOnion is reporting what everybody feared. Osama Bin Laden has come back from the dead and is now terrorizing the USA. A 500-feet Osama is said to have come out of the ocean and destroyed large swathes of both Washington DC, and New York. Weapons had no effect on the Godzilla-sized terrorist who seemed to absorb bombardments and attacks to grow stronger, angrier and larger. It is never a good idea to throw someone into the ocean. Apparently, prime targets in Washington had been evacuated before Bin Laden reached there, and we assume the leadership league is busy making plans for a counter-attack on the giant terrorist.
Steve Thompson created these ingenious carvings of Star Wars characters on Crayola.
Nothing gets fantasies going like money. Some of these might be serious attempts at the dollar, others more playful like the Make Your Franklin project. The project website allows anyone to download the bill, and rework it into something artistic, like those shown here. There’s a lot more at the project gallery, with the ultimate goal of the project founders being to make a book with the best submissions, and possibly to get a few Franklins for themselves.
Epic Games and NECA teamed up to produce this wicked Gears of War 3 Retro Lancer; we’ll just skip the word replica from now on. The gun was created using 3D data from the game, and does maintain an authentic look throughout its 3.5 feet length. It will start shipping on September 13, and is available for pre-order on Gamestop.
Twenty light years sounds like a massive distance, but it is just a stone throw away when talking in astronomical distances. That happens to be our distance from Gliese 581d, a planet orbiting a red dwarf star, with a stable atmosphere, comfortable temperatures and plenty of water. Gliese planetary system has been of particular interest for quite some time now, getting some limelight with scientists speculating possibility of life on another planet, the 581g. Scientists now believe the 581g may not be such a great place after all, and it may just be a fairytale coming out of errors in measurement. The 581d though, is sure to exist, lying on the fringes of the star systems habitable zone, called the Goldilocks zone.
