The Fantastical Imagination Of Artist Story Sabatino

Story Sabatino (Oozn on DeviantArt) has a style that jumped out at me immediately. While she does some wicked fan art inspired by things like Game of Thrones, she also creates wonderful scenarios of her own with some interesting creatures. See for yourself…

Curious Creatures From The Imagination of Gibson Radsavanh

When I spotted Australian artist Gibson Radsavanh’s work on DeviantArt, I was immediately swept away to an usual place that reminded me of Wonderland. Where some inhabitants were sweet, some sinister, and others sinister disguised as sweet. Here’s a sampling of Radsavanh’s unique creations with a few well-known pop-culture characters skewed to his particular stylings mixed in. Beware, some creepiness lies ahead…

Zookeepers Order Booze For Elephants, Zookeepers Drink Booze For Elephants

Here’s a funny story for your late afternoon enjoyment: Zookeepers in Pakistan regularly purchase alcohol for the zoo’s elephants for when the animals get a little keyed up during mating season. Or so they claimed. For twenty years. If that isn’t funny enough for you to begin with, try this one: Someone thought it was strange that elephants were basically being “prescribed” booze, so they asked a veterinarian, “Hey, can elephants drink booze?” And the vet said, “No, elephants cannot drink booze. God, I hope they haven’t been drinking booze.” Don’t worry! The elephants never drank any of the booze. It was for the zookeepers, who bogarted all that elephant-relegated booze for all those years.

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On Takes on Brian Williams in Hard-Hitting Interview [Video]

On his new show Rock Center, NBC News anchor and all-around media hero Brian Williams was awesome enough to feature some New York-based comedians, Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, and their amazing internet creation, Marcel the Shell With Shoes On. The tiny, one-eyed be-shoed shell has two videos on the internet, boasting millions and millions of hits — and hearts. Yeah. I said it. But Marcel the Shell is newsworthy, so you should follow us behind the jump and watch the very excellent video. Marcel won’t talk to just anybody, people.

In Case You Missed It: Tim Burton’s Balloon at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Yesterday, during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Tim Burton made his debut as “parade balloon designer” and introduced his original character B. Boy to the all-star lineup. B. Boy was part of an artists series called the Blue Sky Gallery, a regular part of the parade that gives artists and creators the opportunity to make a balloon that sits just outside of the mainstream “cast” of balloons. (Past artists have included Keith Haring and Takashi Murakami.) According to the Macy’s team, Burton was always very high on the list for this. B. Boy was first featured at the Museum of Modern Art last spring, and that’s when the parade team starting courting Burton. More pics, behind the scenes video, and B. Boy’s origin story after the jump!

This Short Spike Jonze Film Contains Passionate Sex Between Felt Puppets [Semi-NSFW Video]

Spike Jonze: Mourir Auprès de Toi on Nowness.com.

Make no mistake: Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side) by Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn — based on the work of fashion designer Olympia Le-Tan — is a beautiful and sad short film. But it does contain a small amount of NSFW language and a copious amount of sex between a skeleton and a woman, both made out of felt and who have magically sprung off the covers of books at the Shakespeare and Company bookstore in Paris. Enjoy!

Best/Worst Person Ever Pranks Friend With Insane Dark Crystal Costume [Video]

For some reason, this video of a man who built an unbelievable Skeksis costume inspired by The Dark Crystal for the sole purpose (it seems) of scaring the bejeezus out of his co-worker has not gone insanely viral. (Okay, maybe he had some plans for Halloween, too.) We have no idea if this is awesome or horrible … we’re just going to go with both, because it is not nice to scare a co-worker, but look at that Skeksis costume! The craftsmanship! Seriously!

Illustrations of How Kids See Things

Back in ye olden tymes when I was a kid and played outdoor games with my neighborhood friends, we used to imagine that the woodsy patch separating two houses was real quicksand, and we never went over there. Ever. These illustrations, by Pierette Diaz, will probably remind you about how our young eyes (and ears) were interpreting things a but differently than they do now.
