By Low Lai Chow in New Photography on Friday 4 April 2014

This list is marvelous. If you have ever wondered what a Head of IT does (Director of Turning Things Off and Back On), or what a Receptionist does (Executive In Charge Of Signing For That), well, now you know.

Woman at work! Wonderfully gaudy French street art by KASHINK

Mareike Muller Contributor

By Mareike Muller in New Art on Friday 4 April 2014

Her artistic name is the onomatopoeic word for the sound of action: KASHINK. And action you’ll get, mostly through huge paintings of four-eyed characters in gaudy colours that you can find all around the world. The work of this French artist is inspired by her Spanish and Slovakian origins, and often features portraits of Frida Kahlo mashed up with comics, which she loves.

Cats making themselves at home in inconceivable places

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Eco on Friday 4 April 2014

Some things in the world simply defy explanation. We just have to accept that cats will always be cats and do cat things in their cat ways. Such as setting up cat camp in every space they take a fancy to and forcing said space to submit to the Rule of Cat instantly.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Thursday 3 April 2014

Poland’s Jagiellonian University has some pretty interesting research collections. And one of them includes a jaw-dropping collection of prison tattoos preserved in formaldehyde. It’s not there so much for shock value as it’s there for a look into the past. ‘Tattoos back then were markedly different than their modern counterparts,’ where they used a method […]

Sesame Street Fighter is now a video game

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in Tech on Thursday 3 April 2014

If you ever wanted to get your hands on Sesame Street’s Bert or Elmo or Cookie Monster and beat them to a pulp – for whatever sick reason you might have – now’s your chance! ‘Sesame Street Fighter’ is now a free playable online game thanks to game developer Cocoalasca. This genius concept started with DeviantArt user gavacho13 when he illustrated ‘Sesame Street’ characters in the style of ‘Street Fighter’. The internet loved it, and now we can get back at Oscar for all his grouchiness through the years, by typing in the random words that appear on the screen.

Check out the awesome merchandise inside the bedrooms of these 80′s kids

Marta Millere Contributor

By Marta Millere in New Trends on Wednesday 2 April 2014

Even if you didn’t grow up in the 80s, you’ll still probably appreciate the cheesy awesomeness of this cartoon and TV show character branded children’s merchandise. These ads were featured in catalogs and urged 80s parents to buy their Americana darlings everything from Cabbage Patch Kid dolls to Garfield sheets. Everything was themed: if you were a little girl who watched Rainbow Brite, you obviously wanted to be the Rainbow Brite girl: ribbons, sheets, toys and all.

Piipshow: a live stream of squirrels and birds dining at a bird feeder that looks like a coffee shop

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in Tech on Wednesday 2 April 2014

Do you ever get the feeling someone’s watching you? These birds probably do. ‘Piipshow’ is a three month long live broadcast of a bird feeder in Norway that looks like a trendy coffee shop. Instead of macchiato and cappuccinos, this café serves up nuts and seeds. Different customers come in during the day, most of them avian, including a Nuthatch, a Blue Tit (not THAT kind of tit), a great tit (not THAT too), and a Bullfinch. Sometimes the occasional squirrel thieves drop in too.

Norwegian boy gets a McDonald’s receipt as a tattoo

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Art on Saturday 29 March 2014

This is customer loyalty at its finest. Stian Ytterdahl from Lorenskog, Norway, will never ever forget what he had for lunch at McDonald’s last Monday, because he had the receipt details tattooed on his right arm. Asked by his friends to choose between sticking a Barbie up his ass and getting inked, he chose the latter (as I would probably too). The dare was supposedly a punishment for being too smitten with the ladies (kids these days).
