2014 was an interesting year. In the past 12 months we’ve witnessed the rise of normcore (if you don’t know what it is, you’re not alone. Check it out here), celebrated the 20th anniversary of the TV show Friends, participated in the ice bucket challenge, and taken thousands of selfies.
Instead of placing a sweet ad online to get ‘Eddie the Terrible’ adopted, someone at the Humane Society of Silicon Valley decided to let truth reign. And sometimes the truth hurts. But Eddie’s just a dog so he won’t know any better. The post was titled ‘Three Reasons You DON’T Want To Adopt Eddie The […]
Because Aussies know great pizza, and because Johnny di Francesco’s a world champion pizza-maker, we’re all treated to the newest pie on the menu: the 99-cheese pizza. Called the Novantanove Formaggio (99-cheese pizza), this pie from 400 Gradi in Melbourne is created using a ‘super cheese’. This super cheese is used as a base and is created by melting down 94 cheeses in a pit.
Some of our past Favourites
Johnnie Walker Red Label recently collaborated with British cobbler Oliver Sweeney to make leather brogues that conceal miniature whiskey bottles. At first glance, they appear just like any elegant Oxford-style shoes, but flip them over and you’ll quickly see that inside their stacked heels are spaces big enough to fit mini liquor bottles. The idea is more discreet than a […]
Called Antoine, this compact boulder cabin has a bed, table, stool, fireplace and window (you have to look outside for your ablutions). It is inspired by and act as a tribute to the alpine experience and the writing of French philosopher Paul Virilio in 1975 on hidden bunker archaeology and principles of camouflage. Built off […]
We’ve gotten dragons all wrong! They’re not the destructive, vicious, fire-breathing creatures we thought they were. Bangladeshi cartoonist ‘Manik n Ratan’ paints dragons in a whole new light – one that’s more adorable and endearing, not to mention, alive. He illustrates them interacting with everyday objects, such as toy cars, a toothbrush, a magnifying glass, […]
The dreidel game is about to change. He first conquered the music industry with Beats, now he’s revolutionizing Hanukkah. San Francisco-based artist Hanna Rothstein, who we’ve featured here before, has come up with the Dr. Dreidel. Basically it’s a dreidel with Dr. Dre on it. The pun-tastic spinning top has the rapper’s images etched on […]
Be the star of your upcoming office Christmas party by bringing in these goodies.

Last year, London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz amazed us all after he came up with a series about naked pin-up girls wearing nothing but splashes of milk. Now he’s back with something more… super.
It’s a S-L-O-W news day and I will give you one. Caught on tape live at the Taipei Zoo, this turtle was taking a leisurely afternoon stroll, presumably to walk off lunch, when it sees another turtle sunning on its back. Since it really takes one to know one, our turtle knew the other can’t […]
The trouble with taking selfies with monkeys is that… you’re taking a selfie with a monkey. A tourist on holiday in Bali has given us all a good laugh when she decided to capture a cute moment with a monkey on camera. The selfie started out as any selfie does-both are smiling wide and in good spirits.
At the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, a baby elephant attempts to chase down a dog. However, when you’re a hulking 265 lb. pachyderm trying to keep up with an agile and elusive canine, things aren’t bound to go your way. And for this calf, it sure didn’t.
This is beautiful. Kevin Moran, from Chicago, hatched a plan to propose to his girlfriend, Molly, while in a photobooth to capture the moment in a unique way. As it happens – the photos are spectacular and there’s video footage from the booth as well.
