Bloody King Oedipus!

We live in an age of mashup.The most recent example is a horror movie based on the 70s kids TV show The Banana Splits. But that's only the latest. There's the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the movie Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, and a million Facebook memes. My favorite lately is a picture of Micky Mouse as a Borg.One of the most audacious mashups ever is Todd Haynes' brilliant 1987 short film Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (which you can watch here), using Barbie dolls instea...

A Mix

A mix of photos without any particular theme. Most were taken in the evening after a movie. An ancient building with a turret. They were usually on buildings as a safety feature as you could see out and down onto the street. Another ancient place. This is the funky interior of a place selling herbal products. Steamy windows at a beauty salon. An inviting interior. Frog legs a specialty here. Art seen from the street.

Batman’s entire utility belt… inside a ballpoint pen

Vintage Album Covers Featuring Frightening Clowns

Wherever there’s a clown, you’ll find a child crying. What possesses adults to think children love clowns? It was particularly bad in decades past, when those nightmarish denizens of the underworld (i.e. clowns) plastered their grotesque faces on tons of children’s products – including album covers. h/t: Source

The Neurological Connections Between Gorgeous Landscapes And Our Relentless Desire To Photograph Them

There’s a bit of a problem: At least one study has shown that we remember less about the places and things we photograph. Going outside can combat our phone addictions and calm our brains … but there’s an issue. “Your cortisol levels may decrease when traveling in Banff National Park, but they’ll still increase every time you pick up your phone to take a picture. It’s the great paradox of our globally connected world.” – The Smart Set

Disney Spent A Lot Of Money And A Quarter-Century Getting The Internet Wrong

Kara Swisher has been writing about companies and the internet for even longer than Disney has been trying to figure out how to deal with the contemporary world. Swisher: “Forget the dashing Mandalorian. Do you remember Starwave? Infoseek? Go? Daily Blast? Club Penguin? Tapulous? Maker Studios? I’d like to say I don’t either, but I know them very well. They were among the many failed efforts by Disney that I have covered as a reporter since the mid-1990s, when it became clear to D...

Listen Up

From the enjoyably odd to playfully political, our favorite new songs Moses Sumney: Virile From his upcoming album græ (which will be released in two parts), Moses Sumney’s “Virile” is a huge, stirring song that explores the concept of masculinity.

The Trash Pirates Of Art (And Music Festivals)

There are festivals just about all of the time now, and that means there’s waste. “Garbage has long been the uncomfortable fallout of the festival world, and as these gatherings multiply like glow sticks at a Phish concert, stretching the season into a year-round party (hola, Costa Rica), its impact has roused young artists and activists.” – The New York Times

George Takei Says He Spent Way Too Much Money On The Broadway Musical ‘Allegiance’
