  5. What If Michael Bay Directed Up? Hint: Explosions.

    You had me at Linkin Park.

    I hate to be one of those people, but I do think something's missing from YouTuber MrStratman7's epic reimagining of Pixar's Up in the style of the Bayinator: a shit-ton of American flags. Seriously—how else will we know Up is a paean to Amurrican ingenuity? That said, this video is absolutely brilliant. Be sure and watch to the very end.

  7. Guy Reserved Every Other Seat in a Movie Theater So Couples Couldn’t Sit Together on Valentine’s Day

    Couples respond by probably just going to a different movie.

    What's one to do in the face of a post-breakup Valentine's Day? Forgoing the popular "play video games alone and drink" approach, a man in Shanghai decided to reserve every other seat at a screening of Beijing Love Story so that snuggling couples wouldn't rub romance in his face... at a movie called Beijing Love Story.

  11. Things We Saw Today: Brosie the Riveter Could Hang on Your Wall, Too

    Things We Saw Today

    If you liked the story of how Brosie the Riveter came to be, you can now buy his poster (along with his distaff counterpart) from WeLoveFine. It's up to you to decide which of your walls can actually handle him. He's a bit too much for our front page, even, so I've, uh, cropped him.

  13. Noelle Stevenson Illustrates Famous Fictional Couples from Buffy, Miyazaki, ’90s TV, And More

    Together At Last

    There's a reason we love Noelle Stevenson (a.k.a. Gingerhaze) around here, and the reason is that she draws stuff like this. And her mad skills at depicting '90s hair and fashion. And her San from Princess Mononoke. And her propensity for stripes. (Fine, fine, I can't speak for Susana and Jill on that one—I just really like stripes and plaid.)

  15. Portland Lawyer Recreated the House from Up

    Almost Totally Excellent

    As a Portlandian, this story fills me with joy: Surrounded by construction for Portland State University, lawyer Randal Acker did what anyone with a penchant for Pixar would do: he tied a bunch of balloons to the roof, in tribute to the movie Up.

  16. Pixar Short La Luna Previews Clip, Offers Cute Kid and an Unconventional Family Story

    eye candy

    Pixar, that beacon of emotional fulfilment and escapism, is at it again. But then again, when did they ever stop? In their latest short, the Pixar team tells the story of a young boy who accompanies his father and grandfather out onto the sea on a tiny wooden boat to learn the ways of their most unusual family business. It's a coming of age story, so when you're in the theatres waiting for the opening credits of Brave and this pops up in the previews, prepare to cry before the movie even starts.

  17. Pixar Films: Secretly Including Messages About the Future of Humanity?

    hold on to your butts

    Kyle Munkittrick at Discover has an amazing essay on what Disney's Pixar movies have taught us what it really means to be human -- without being an actual human person. And not just that, but also what this means for how humans will react with other entities in the future, such as technology. The way Disney and Pixar have accomplished this is by creating entire worlds without humans as the main focus, or even present. As a result, we might be learning that it's a bad idea to underestimate the intelligence of animals, robots, and even other humans.

The house reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet and flew for about an hour. More pics and video below:

    It's the year 1965, and Disney has just finished it's latest live-action block buster film Up!. It's a star-studded cast, with Spencer Tracey, Kirk Douglas, and that lecherous talking dog from A Boy And His Dog. Throw in a flying house and  giant bird, and it's the hit that never was.
