I Want To Die, Like, Yesterday Just So I Can Be Buried In This Pod That Turns Me Into a Tree

Earlier today, this caught my eye on a friend's Facebook wall: an Italian design company has designed an organic burial pod that will turn the deceased person's ruins into soil nutrients that will grow a tree. EXCUSE ME, WHAT. If I can't attend Hogwarts, the next best thing would definitely be to transfigure myself into a tree upo…

2014: The Year In Jenna Marbles Being Weird

Jenna Marbles is one of my greatest pleasures. My thoughts on Jenna Marbles are almost unequivocally positive. I started watching her channel when she posted “Some Idiot/How Sports Bras Work” about Yuksul Aytug’s truly idiotic comments about female Olympians and have watched every single main-channel video since then. Jenna Marbles is basically the highlight of…

This Is What Happens When You Saw A Rubber Band Ball In Half

I don't know what I expected to happen when a rubber band ball is sawed in half, but I certainly did not anticipate feeling a mixture of delight, fear and revulsion. Like, I am oddly terrified of, grossed out by and dying to touch whatever is happening on my screen right now. [IFL Science!]…

Kate Godwin Is Sharing Her DNA For The Sake Of Art And I Love It

I have a Shelf of Oddities (yes, I capitalize it in my head) that contains a toy bust of a Black Barbie, a miniature black Frank Kozik Gipper Bust, a School House Rock soundtrack, a vintage Franc, a chunk of pyrite, a bag of semi-precious rocks (mostly also pyrite), a paper knife, the rubber-band detritu…

UK Man Drops Dead After Opening “Pandora’s Box”

Novel idea: if, for any reason or due to any twist of fate, one stumbles across a container labeled "Pandora's box," refrain from opening it. We all know what happened last time, right? There shouldn't have to be a next time for something that, as legend goes, is responsible for giving us all of the…

I Don’t Really Understand The Appeal Of Japan’s New Owl Cafes

Is it just me, or does the concept of an owl cafe not quite possess the same appeal as their predecessor, cat cafes? A bird of prey is not exactly my ideal coffee 'n' crumb cake companion … but as Japan would have it, "fukurou" cafes offering owl-themed food and drink are all the rage,…

Dennis Rodman And A Kim Jong Un-Alike Star In An Ad For Pistachios

Wonderful Pistachios have really stepped up their ad game in what seems like an exorbitantly expensive way. I mean, they've landed Snoop Dogg, Homer and Bart Simpson, Psy at the height of his awful-moment-in-pop-culture fame, even the Prancercise lady … I had no idea there was so much money in pistachios. This latest video star…

Regular Dresses Too Regular? Try Some Hairy Ones Instead

When we talk about the hair at fashion shows, we generally mean the hair on the models, not the hair on the clothes. Charlie Le Mindu certainly didn't have convention in mind when he presented Metal Queen, his "haute coiffeur" collection, on the runway in Paris during Couture Week. "I wanted to do a collectio…

Sir Ivan Takes Us To “La La Land” And Obliterates Our Minds

Sir Ivan is what might happen if David Guest and "Juicy" Joe Giudice had an adult baby. He made this horrific song and spent approximately 99 percent of the music budget on body paint. So it's basically can't-look-away terrible. Color us thoroughly mindfucked. [Sir Ivan]…

$1,800 Sneakers Made Of Genetically Engineered Stingray Skins, Anyone?

Just when I start to think that disgusting displays of excess have reached capacity, someone comes up with the idea of genetically engineering stingrays in order to produce unique colorful designs on the shagreen (the hide of the stingray) to then be made into shoes. Sneakers, to be exact. This is apparently a real thing,…
