Would you sell your old and tiny house for a million dollars? In 2006, Edith Macefield of Seattle turned down such an offer, paving the way for her home to become the inspiration for Disney/Pixar’s hit movie, ‘Up’. The 84-year old woman made headlines when she refuse to sell her property to developers, forcing them […]
This incredible series of photographs features “morbid depictions of common beauty rituals” of women. Created by artist Jessica Ledwich, each photo is just as bizarre as the next, showing just what women have gone through in their beauty practices that are quite “monstrous”. Ledwich says her project explores the fact that throughout “history, the bodies […]
Want to teach your dog a lesson it will never forget? Turn your pooch into an enchanted creature via this unicorn mask for dogs. Tokyo-based crochet artist Hiroko Fukatsu created the ultimate shaming device for the upcoming ‘Year of the Horse’. She used the photos of the embarrassed Shiba Unicorn as New Year’s Day greeting cards.
Biochemist Linden Gledhill reveals to us the little things that make a butterfly beautiful, through the lens of science. In the series, Gledhill first collected various specimens of rare and colourful butterflies. He then placed them under a microscope and a set of high-powered lights to capture the mesmerizing world hidden in their wings.
MossyTortoise is an Etsy shop offering custom crocheted cozies for your pet tortoise. No, truly. Katie Bradley is behind the concept, which began with an ‘accidental hobby’ of rescuing tortoises. [Check out our recent post on Penguins in Sweaters]
Taboos are everywhere, even when it comes to dining. Lucky for you, a dining etiquette infographic by Visual.ly has been made to make sure you never make a faux pas while abroad. This chart features some things you might not be aware of while dining overseas, such as, be ready to share your food while […]
Ever felt like buying something just because the accessories for it were so cool? I don’t admit this to just anyone, but one of the reasons I begged my boyfriend (more like whispered subliminal messages to him in his sleep) for an iPhone for Christmas was for the plethora of cute cases. Same applies to Shelfie, a new product on Kickstarter.
We love how Danish designers Mateusz Mastalski and Ole Robin Storjohann have ingeniously proposed using the negative space in between buildings as actual living spaces with these cool urban infill design concepts that look really livable and edgy at the same time. Who knew there was so much potential to house more people in already-packed […]
What do you do when death is peeking its head down your car’s sunroof and is staring straight into your soul? Take photos, naturally! Australian photographer Bobby-Jo Clow was on a safari in the Serengeti when her tour group came across a cheetah and her two juvenile offspring. To Clow’s surprise, the two juveniles made their way towards the Land Rover, with one eventually hopping onto the hood.
Sure, hot air balloon rides are in every country, but nothing quite beats a hot air balloon ride above Cappadocia. Alfonso Salcedo took these amazing photos above the surreal landscape of Cappadocia, in Turkey’s Central Anatolia region. The area is known for its ‘unusual moon-like landscape. It’s mixture of naturally formed hills, deep canyons, valleys, […]
This stunning fence looks like a proper picket fence that every respectable American girl dreamed of in the 1950s, except that it’s not: it’s an art installation and unfortunately cannot be purchased at your local hardware store.
Sure, Miles Davis may have an extensive discography of really good stuff, but it doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about 135 minutes of previously unreleased tracks from his full set at Fillmore 45 long years ago. One of these tracks, Footprints, is now being floated by Legacy Recordings online prior to the boxset hitting […]
Say hasta la vista to that painful process of trying to create the perfect sushi roll. Arm yourselves with this secret weapon from Firebox, and you will dominate your sushi cravings like never before. The Sushi Bazooka is a kitchen tool that makes your life easier by removing that daunting phase of having to load all the filling perfectly and shaping it afterwards.
If you can’t make it to an art gallery, the art gallery will come to you. Thanks to Los Angeles-based street artist Plastic Jesus, the streets of LA have become an artistic playground. Described as ‘The Banksy of LA’, Plastic Jesus’ work shines ‘a small light into some of those dark corners of society then stands back to watch reactions and opinions’.
‘The President’ doesn’t have a nickname for just any old reason. This giant sequoia, one of the largest trees in the world, stands 75.3m tall, 8.2m wide, measures 1,274.3 cubic metres in volume, and is an estimated 3,200 years old. And it’s never been completely photographed – until a tree-climbing scientist got involved. Behold, 32 days of work to take 126 individual photos, stitched together to create one amazing image.

You’ll never know when you need a banana, so it’s best to have one nearby even if you’re on a bike. Designed by Etsy seller ‘Biken’, this quirky bicycle accessory is designed to safely transport and protect your banana from harm. The genuine leather strap can be attached to the bike’s frame, or if you’re extra clingy, to your waist belt.
New York photographer Paul Nathan has probably seen a lot in his career, but these creatively groomed dogs have got to be one of the wackiest things ever. In his series Groomed, Nathan captures all sorts of K9s who have been dyed and fluffed up for one of the largest international dog and cat grooming conferences (who knew there was one).
Design student Nicole Pannuzzo of Arizona State University has found a way to squeeze that hard-to-reach last drop of toothpaste out of the tube. How? By turning the tube into an accordion. Redesigning the typical toothpaste packaging design as a spiral utilizes simple physics to eject the toothpaste more easily and without hassle. As the toothpaste empties, the accordion-like tube collapses, becoming flatter and flatter until there’s no more room inside for the paste to hide in.
They say that too much of anything is bad. That’s true, even for balloons. In 1986, non-profit organization United Way of Cleveland held a fundraiser by attempting to break the world record for most balloons launched at once. They held the event in Cleveland’s Public Square, where hundreds of volunteers worked tirelessly, inflating 1.5 million balloons and gathering them under a net. When the balloons were released, it created a vista like no other, filling the sky with clouds of colour and plastic.
Sean Sullivan may have done his overwhelmingly detailed Grand Pale Maw mural with a Sharpie years ago, but that doesn’t stop us from marveling at it still. Thanks to Joey Morris, who took some photos of the work in its various stages of completion, we are able to ogle at this quite happily.
This heart-warming video is part of the Canon Shine movement, where Canon are aiming to bring back the power of the photograph - encouraging people to submit a photograph and use their lens to change the world.
In this clip, Australian cricket legend and founder of the Waugh Foundation, Steve Waugh, chooses Daniel as his subject - a 19 year old man who has spinal muscular atrophy. His robotic arms allows him to do simple things like pet his dog and comb his hair.
