Artist Burt Jansen was bummed when his cat Orville was killed by a car, but he also saw his pet’s death as an artistic opportunity — turning lemons into lemonade, if you will. Jansen stuffed the dead animal, and through some ingenious engineering, turned Orville the Cat into Orville the Helicopter, or the Orvillecopter. The cat-cum-remote-controlled-toy is currently on display at the Kunstrai Art Festival in Amsterdam. And while Jansen admits that the Orvillecopter doesn’t always fly perfectly straight, he assures us that “he will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday. So this hopping will soon change into steady flight.”

Please enjoy a video of the Orvillecopter actually flying after the jump.

“[Jack Gleeson who plays boy-king Joffrey] really is lovely. After our takes when he’s mean to me, he’ll come over and have a nice chat with me. It’s kind of surreal. I had one particularly horrible moment with Joffrey, and then he came over afterwards and he said [imitates male Irish accent], “Yes. How are you?” I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! [Laughs.] I should be his bodyguard.”

 –The lovely Sophie Turner, who plays poor petrified Sansa Stark on “Game Of Thrones.”  Apparently when the series author George R.R. Martin met Gleeson, he told him, “Job well done. Everyone hates you.” [NYMag]

This Is Your Face On Sun

You’d think the picture of this 69-year-old man had somehow been digitally altered, but no. This is an actual guy, who shows signs of extreme aging and sun damage on one side of his face. That’s because he spent 28 years as a truck driver, exposing the left side of his face to the sun while he drove. The right side received far less exposure, and accrued far less damage. It’s a wild, true life example of why you should put some goddamn sunblock on already. [NEJM]

I don’t know about you, but my summer sandals often get totally destroyed. So I’ve resolved to not spend too much on them this year. After all, they’re going to be headed to the beach, to the park, tubing and all manner of other not-very-hospitable places with me, so they should be ready to get wrecked. But hey, they should still look cute, too. I don’t want no stinkin’ four-inch platform nightmares, either. So that’s why I’ve found 12 pairs of perfectly cute, perfectly affordable sandals — all under $25. Check ‘em out!
