Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Art on Tuesday 25 November 2014

Got to love this collection of the women in classical art paintings rejecting prospective suitors, with hilariously dubbed subtitles by Seth D Michaels. Goes to show that classical art is not always about the male gaze but really open to interpretation.

Goats balancing on wobby metal sheet prove they are better athletes than you

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Monday 24 November 2014

So us humans can walk into brick walls and manholes as we text… while goats out-perform us in everyday life — as this video of a bunch of goats gallantly balancing on a buoyant metal sheet clearly shows. We are properly ashamed of our lack of dexterity.

Stop the presses! Online store Archie McPhee just dropped the mic on the Christmas ornament scene! This is Santaur, and if you haven’t noticed by now, he’s half Santa, half horse. He’s a six-inch tall glass Christmas ornament you can hang on your tree or place it in the middle of a table.

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Photography on Monday 24 November 2014

How should makeup really be done? Is there a universally correct way to do it? Should it be based on what society perceives as beautiful, or should it be up to the person wearing it?

Back in the 70s, Continental Airlines had some groovy inflight entertainment: two-player ping pong!

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Cool Travel on Monday 24 November 2014

Presented by Tiger Air

Believe it or not, but back in the 1970s, air passengers weren’t spoiled with a huge assortment of video games to play while flying. In fact, Atari was just in its early days and arcade games weren’t nearly as highly developed as they are now. So to keep passengers occupied aboard Continental Airlines, passengers were treated to rather extravagant inflight entertainment: two-player ping pong.

What if Quentin Tarantino created Disney films!

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 22 November 2014

A ‘what if’ series of Disney movies re-interpreted as Quentin Tarantino flicks? Brilliant! Of course, the mug of Samuel L Jackson — a perennial Tarantino favorite — is all over the face of these Disney posters, accompanied with suitably cussing taglines like ‘I just cleaned them step-bitches’ whole motherfucking castle’ (Cinderella) and ‘They just killed […]

Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in Video on Saturday 22 November 2014

Dogs, they will never disappoint you. If they do what you tell them, it’s endearing. If they don’t do what you tell them, can you really get mad at those adorable puppy dog eyes?

Kenny Ong Contributor

By Kenny Ong in New Fashion on Friday 21 November 2014

Little girls may dream of owning their Barbie doll shoes when they grow up but their big sisters think nothing of wearing barbie heads in their shoes. At least in Harajuku, the teen retail fave spot of Tokyo. At age 55, the controversial bombshell hated by staunch feminists is hitting the streets of Harajuku inside […]

By Nicole Hughes in Video on Friday 21 November 2014

These two brothers are caught red-handed, or purple and green-faced. Together they teamed up and decided it would be a great idea to paint themselves. Layered in a solid coat of paint, their dad does what any good parent should do: film it and upload it to YouTube for the world to enjoy.

All together now: ‘Shut up and take my money!’ This is an LED-embedded moon lamp by Japanese designer Nosigner (Eisuke Tachikawa) and his team. If it looks like the real thing, that’s because it’s based on actual 3D topographical data obtained from the lunar orbiter spacecraft, Kaguya.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Fashion on Thursday 20 November 2014

Slavik might be homeless in the Ukrainian city of Lviv, but you’ll never see this man wearing the same outfit twice. Documented by photographer Yurko Dyachyshyn, Slavik’s Fashion is a touching photo series that follows Slavik’s unique day-to-day wardrobe choices. According to Dyachyshyn, Slavik takes great pride in his ‘fashion-forward sensibilities, taking the time to change his clothes at least once a day while restyling his hair and his beard with each new outfit’.
