Google Broken Image icon is everywhere

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Trends on Thursday 18 April 2013

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? […]

Members of 90s Teenbeat bands cover the Bumblebee Tuna song

Erik Kraft Reader Find

By Erik Kraft in Video on Saturday 30 March 2013

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 […]

Cyrus Daruwala Reader Find

By Cyrus Daruwala in New Art on Friday 29 March 2013

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.

SModcast: the funniest download on iTunes?

Pony Boy Reader Find

By Pony Boy in New Trends on Wednesday 27 March 2013

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 […]

The Automatic Rexifier: the answer to stupid comic strips

Erik Kraft Reader Find

By Erik Kraft in Cool Websites on Wednesday 27 March 2013

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 […]

Strangely humorous art by Paul Motisi

Derek Smith Reader Find

By Derek Smith in New Art on Wednesday 20 March 2013

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 […]

Cyrus Daruwala Reader Find

By Cyrus Daruwala in New Design on Saturday 16 March 2013

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.

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.

Products that promise to be good for you (but aren’t)

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Tuesday 8 January 2013

Haha, we can’t help chuckling at ads that state obvious untruths to the point that they’re almost a parody of what they advertise. Oobjects has a great collection of these hyperbole-laden ads that over-promise the goodness of their products. We have too many favourites on this list, from the ‘wholesome’ fast-food grub of McDonald’s to the ‘instantaneous cure’ that be these dubious-sounding Cocaine Headache Drops.
