The Aleph is a short story by Jorge Luis Borges that relates the experience of a man suddenly able to see everything in the world all at once. And now, thanks to David Hirmes, that story just got a quirky, modern update. You can read the story translated into modern Twitter slang. Or maybe you’re feeling classy, in […]
Andrew Mason is recording his first album, Hardly Workin’, ‘a seven song album of motivational business music targeted at people newly entering the workforce’. For quite a while, Mason had the job of managing over 12,000 people at Groupon. Most of those people were under 25 and had no clue when it came to basic business […]
It’s everywhere. We’ve all seen it before. It’s absolutely infuriating if we’re being completely honest. That stupid “broken image” icon always pops up when my Internet is too weak to load a full page from Google. Hey, but what if Google helped give the iconic image a more positive connotation? What if it were used everywhere? […]
A collection of shit illustrations. It’s not pretending to be anything it’s not. Simple, graphic and a bit of a laugh. You don’t have to be good at something to be good at something.
Honestly, what were the parents thinking when they paid to have their child’s photo taken with these nightmare bunnies? I understand Easter Bunnies are part of most American families’ tradition for the Easter holiday, but some people just don’t know where to draw the line. Seriously. Find 31 more terrifying photos here. It’s kind of […]
In the 90s, if it said Teenbeat on it, I would buy it (and usually did). So take two members of great 90s Teenbeat bands (Unrest and Blast Off Country Style) and get them covering jingles? I’m listening. After all, what is a jingle if not just a really short pop song? The Bumblebee Tuna […]
What’s the mane feature of a lion? This wacky art project has the king of the jungle styled like a rock star. We think ‘Afro Lion’, by the Japanese artist Mountstar is definitely going to be the look for the runways of the savanna this spring.
This graphic short is the culmination of a 24-hour comic. Which just goes to show that great work can happen in quick time too. A poignant story of a man who is shipwrecked on an island with a gorilla that is fluent in English, Eastern Mountain Gorilla, French, Bonobo, and Crow.
SModcast is in my opinion the funniest podcast download on iTunes. Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s genesis seems to have been that two friends thought it would be a good way to stop the third friend potentially committing suicide. The aforementioned suicidal one is easily one of the funniest human beings […]
If you’re unfamiliar with The Comics Curmudgeon, the gist is that Josh reads the terrible daily strips so we don’t have to. But when he pointed out the ridiculousness of the opening panel to a recent Rex Morgan, M.D. one of his readers really rose to the occasion and created the Rexifier, adding the good […]
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012, Ned Beauman’s second book is filthy, funny and endlessly interesting. One of the most exciting young writers out there, his books are a joy to read.
Paul Motisi is a good friend of mine, so I have nothing bad to say about him. It’s good that I don’t, because he’s exceptionally talented and creative. On one level, his work is very sleek and cartoonish, but the concepts and delivery of it have such heart and humor that comes across instantaneously. I’ve […]
Language is constantly advancing but this would be nothing short of hyper-evolution. Our favourite is the Morgan Freemark, whose usage denotes that the text should be read out in Morgan Freeman’s voice. The best way to add gravitas to any statement.
If you’re looking for a good laugh, you should definitely check out Wax’s latest video for his tune, Rosana. It’s Spanish flavored and infused with more then a hint of Mexican. In fact, you could liken the clip to a perfect burrito. It’s outer tortilla is the catchy beat which holds the song together, with […]
Meet the shouting men’s choir of Finland. They run in teams of thirty, dress in all black, drink Vodka, and shout in unison. You might hear them performing at the MoMA. You might run into them performing for the President at the White House. But no matter where you encounter this group of Finnish men, […]
