I don’t always grow a long, silky smooth beard, but when I do… Ok, I don’t. I can never grow a beard and enjoy its warm, comforting thickness hugging my cheeks. That’s why products like ‘Beardski’ are a godsend. It’s basically a ski mask that comes with a fake beard that will keep you toasty as you hit the slopes.c
Looks like we can’t get enough of Ben Young’s glass sculptures. Raised in Waihi Beach, New Zealand and now based in Sydney, Australia, the self-taught artist has been doing these for over a decade, drawing, cutting and crafting his works by hand, layer by painstaking layer.
The project called Freedom Tattoos has one goal: to transform those ugly, and often crude, amateur tattoos on prisoners. Made in prisons and juvenile detention centers, they are a means of expression, but aren’t well-perceived once out of prison. To help ex-convicts get back into society and find a job, Freedom Tattoos covers those amateur tattoos with professional, artistically tasteful ones.
Some of our past Favourites
Who knew the salt flats of Salt Lake City, Utah, could be so beautiful? Julieanne Kost did. The photographer, who is also the principal digital imaging evangelist for Adobe Systems, captured these amazing aerial shots of salt flats near Salt Lake City, and the dream-like textures really make us swoon.
There’s a 1977 hit by the Jackson 5 titled Keep on Dancing. You might’ve heard it before-it’s quite catchy. Well, maybe this is why a group of Russians decided to keep on dancing at the traffic lights.
It finally happened! Aussies put vegemite inside their pizza crust, and the rest of the world are gagging!
Pizza Hut went where not many companies would go. They advertised how much their customers hate their products. Well, one of them anyway. And it only makes us want to try it more! Just in time for Australia Day, Pizza Hut is launching a new pizza with a Vegemite-filled crust. Yep, that Vegemite, the typically Australian yeast paste, an acquired taste and one that (most) foreigners are definitely not used to (cue gag reflexes)
Parenthood can be looked at two ways: you either adore your kids and your life changes for the better… or, it doesn’t. One anonymous dad named ‘UKJoel25′ might be one of the dads out there who doesn’t exactly embrace fatherhood. He recently posted on EBay to sell his bright green pram, with bids starting at just £9.99. Since it’s been on the site, the ‘green monster’ has accumulated bids higher than £150K. Why? Read the description below and tell me that isn’t worth £150K!
Take a look at this awesome Touchdown collection that Pilot & Captain is running especially for the Super Bowl. With the big game almost here, they are now selling these limited edition, two-colour tees for both New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks fans. To make the deal even better, fans get a discount. These one-of-a-kind […]
The U.S. is known for its aisles and aisles of snacks in grocery stores and convenience shops, but the rest of the world isn’t always in-the-know on American snacks, so it seemed like a fun experiment to gather a few Korean girls, sit them down, and have them taste some of America’s favourite snacks.
While paintings and sculptures are the center of attraction in any museum, it appears that their lives (if they had lives) are not as glamorous as we thought they’d be. In his series ‘What They See’, filmmaker and artist Masashi Kawamura went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and took pictures […]
New Zealand law can reject names for any number of reasons. If they are too long, resemble a title, rank or considered offensive, then they can’t be used. Simply as that! Last year, the NZ Department of Internal Affairs knocked many names off the list. A couple who tried to name their baby Senior Constable was rejected (thank goodness!). And those who entered symbols like ‘3rd’ and ’09’ were also rejected.
The Plaza’s got nothing on this line of hotels! Developed by Dutch agency NL Architects, the proposal for the Amethyst Hotel looks just like violet variety of quartz, cut in half. Designed to promote the healing qualities of the amethyst, the first Amethyst Hotel (of many) is under development in China, on a man-made island called Ocean Flower, which is in the sea north of Hainan.
Know what’s better than close-up footage of lava spilling into the ocean? Absolutely nothing. So you’ve got to watch this video. It’s actually quite mesmerizing. Kawika Singson used his GoPro to capture this pretty cool phenomenon off the coast of Hawaii, and you can’t help but wonder just how hot that water is getting with that neverending spillage of lava (which is around 1,100 degrees).
Along the Great Ocean Road in Fairhaven, Southern Australia, sits – or should I say, delicately balances – a unique beach house that doubles as an illusion. Called ‘The Pole House’, the oceanfront home appears to be floating in mid-air, with only a walkway connecting it to the ground!
