Yes, there really is something to be said about wakeskating through an enormous lake of cranberries. This video is mesmerising, shot in the dramatic surrounds of Wisconsin’s Manitowish Waters, where the berries ripen on the vine and are then flooded with water from a nearby reservoir.
Just breathtaking. That’s about all we can say about this short video by Terjes shot atop El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain (3,718 metres) over 7 days between April 4th and 11th, 2011. It gives you a frontrow seat to some stunning nightly activity, awash with colour, light and action.
Question: where hasn’t a GoPro been lately? What, between falling into pig pens, flying with baby pelicans, and capturing plane crashes … from inside the plane … it would seem there is no frontier left to conquer. Until now.
We always had our suspicions, but now, thanks to the good folk at Carroll University in Wisconsin, it’s been confirmed by science: cat owners are officially smarter than their dog loving peers. Yes, according to Live Science ‘cat lovers scored higher than dog lovers on measures such as introversion, open-mindedness and a term used far too loosely in society, sensitivity’. Sensitivity!
For any number of reasons, ranging from a too large stomach (her words, not ours), and a long standing desire to be a nun (huh?!), these women have literally never seen their own vaginas. Never! So, of course, YouTube sensation DaveyWavey decided to, erm, introduce them to it. In the nicest possible way. The results were pretty fascinating (and amusing) to see, as this video below reveals.
This is definitely one for the Only in America category: in this land of mass gun ownership, are we really shocked to see these young kids proudly holding their colourful Crickett rifles and heartbreakingly outlining the fears that have promoted it. Photographer An-Sofie Kesteleyn approached strangers at American gun ranges asked if she could photograph their children holding guns.
So we may not have the real deal around anymore to shimmy and shake on stage like no-one else, but we do have a hologram version of the King of Pop. And it’s NEARLY as good as the real thing. At last night’s Billboard Music Awards, and five years after his death, the visual-effects studio Digital Domain projected a life-size version of Michael Jackson into the living rooms of millions around the world.
Jessica Harrison, you’ve done it again. Not content with distorting the inherent beauty of her Victorian-era stylised work via subtle destruction of her figurines, Harrison has now created an epic series of porcelain figurines sporting sailor tattoos. Wild. The Scottish artist will be showing this work at Paris’s Galerie L.J. in a solo show titled […]
Sometimes you see something that makes you question the natural order of the world, and your somewhat insignificant place in it. This remarkable security video footage uploaded by YouTuber Roger Triantafilo shows his young son being set upon by a vicious angry dog, who was in turn set upon by an even angrier, vicious cat.
The most famous music video of the past decade just had its music stripped away, and it’s still awesome!
Everyone knows the routine by now – some of us better than others. But seeing Ok Go perform this viral video monster (20 million views and counting) without the music is way more entertaining than the original ever was. Don’t believe us? Feast your eyes on this action and prepare yourself for more grunts and groans than, really, you ever wanted to hear.
Stop the clock: this video of a bunny furiously eating a raspberry officially beats out the baby shark and the cat with ducklings as THE cutest thing we’ve seen all year. Yes, we want one. Yes, we will feed it all the raspberries it can eat. Yes, that ‘lipstick’ looks divine. Sigh. Now won’t someone please rescue us from watching it all over again.
The most beautiful thing you’ll see all year: missing ducklings found safe in the loving arms of the family cat
Ok, so this is the heartwarming story of the year. Irish couple Ronan and Emma Lally couldn’t find their pet ducklings one day and went into a panic fearing that they had become, erm, breakfast for their beloved cat, Della. But it turned out that poor Della had been wrongly accused.
Created in 1692, this book by unheralded artist A. Boogert featured beautiful watercolours and theories around how best to mix them. As our friends at This Is Colossal have noted, the 800 page book, entitled Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau, ‘was probably the most comprehensive guide to paint and colour of […]
It would be fair to say that we have a thing for magnified photos on Lost At E Minor. And can you blame us? Who knew that a single grain of sand could look so vibrant under an intense lens, or that dust could harbour so many colourful elements? This incredible photo shows what you […]
This is so compelling we’ve spent three-quarters of the day watching it over, and over, and over again. That’s right, who would’ve thought that the simple act of blowing up a balloon with too much, erm, hot air, could lead to such visually powerful imagery. But it did, and here’s the proof. Fun, huh? [Watch […]
