That might sound a bit too permanent, but that’s exactly what Jonathan Berg of Brooklyn got on his torso the day after the quake. Tattoo artist Joe Khay of Citizen Ink in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn originally advertised the tattoo he designed as a joke on Facebook, but people actually ended up taking him up on the offer.
It’s bad enough having to swat away a single bug, but an entire swarm? If you’re anywhere near the Missouri River that’s just something you might have to contend with – these “bugnadoes” form in areas with high volumes of water, particularly after flooding has occurred.
John Taylor secured his rightful spot in metal heaven when he recently broke the record for world’s fastest guitar playing. He clocked in at at 600 BPM (Beats Per Minute), almost twice the speed of the original record holder, Tiago Della Vega.
How would you react if a painting suddenly came to life? Alexa Meade‘s painted people look like works of art but move like humans — making for an eerie sight.
Whereas most artists would just paint their subjects on a canvas, Meade actually turns her subjects INTO the canvas. She creates life-size installations that are shockingly exact in their similarity to actual acrylic paintings. Upon first glance it’s almost impossible to tell that there are real people under all that paint.
A drastic haircut can be a traumatizing experience. But what if you could get your old look back in a snap?
Tom Offer Westort and his friend Peter Simon got inspired by Tom’s decision to shear off all his head and facial hair and created this clever stop-motion video in which his extreme haircut is shown in reverse. Watch Tom go from totally bald and clean-shaven to his old shaggy-haired self in 30 seconds.
If Andy Warhol were alive today, how would he react to modern culture? The iconic artist, who died in 1987 at age 58, would probably flip for internet microcelebrities on sites like YouTube, which affirms his “15 minutes of fame” theory.
To commemorate Warhol’s 83rd birthday this past Saturday, artist Edgar Askelovic created a sculpture that imagines what he would have looked like had he lived to see 2011.
For those who spend tons of time of Facebook, the real world can feel like a foreign place: How can you know if that cute girl at the bar is single without a relationship status? How to remember the name of that guy from high school if he hasn’t been helpfully tagged? And how does one share an opinion on a clever magazine article or cool piece of art without a “like” button? Happily, liking things in real life just got a whole lot easier with Jailbreak Collective’s set of Like/Dislike stamps.
On July 16, New York’s Rockefeller Park was lit up like a Christmas tree when over 3,500 people converged for Improv Everywhere’s latest MP3 Experiment. The popular series of “missions,” as IE calls its stunts, asks participants to download an MP3 file, gather in one spot, hit play at the same time and follow the audio instructions for an awesome effect.
The eighth installment in the MP3 mission series included activities with flashlights and glowsticks, giving the phrase “flash mob” an entirely new meaning. Check out video of the mission below:
