The Arts | stunning animal creations from living human models

Share

You may think you’re seeing a frog–but in fact you’re seeing five human beings, painted and intertwined to create an incredible art illusion by Italian artist Johannes Stoetter.

Body paint artist Johannes Stoetter makes stunning frog animal creations from human beingsInspired by nature, Italian artist Johannes Stoetter turns living models into animals, fruits, flowers, or blends them with the surroundings. These impressively detailed paintings take up to five months of thorough planning and up to eight hours of work to complete. The winner of the World Bodypainting Championship says that the key to success is to love what you’re doing: “I think I observe the world, nature, colors and shapes with very clear eyes and an open heart. And painting is my big passion.”

You’ll have to look really close at this picture of a beautiful parrot to realize that it’s not a parrot at all. The rich red-and-gold plumes are, in fact, a woman’s limbs painted to perfection. The incredibly clever photograph is the work of 35-year-old body painter Johannes Stoetter. Continue reading »

Video | comedic film-maker creates hilarious Vine illusions

Share

Zack King can make traffic disappear, jump through the closed doors of a moving train and steal the Eiffel Tower–and he does so with imaginative fun in his very short films known as Vines.

Zach King, Vine & funny Youtube illusionist comedian steals Eiffel Tower in France videoHere’s What You Need to Know About Illusionist Vine Star Zach King  —  By Laura Lane

Known as the Final Cut King, Zach King is a bona fide Vine star. While other popular Vine users post six-second pranks, mash-ups or jokes, King’s Vines are also comedic, but they stand out from the crowd with his astonishing illusions that use major motion-picture-quality special effects.

In a recent Vine, King grabs the Apple logo from his computer and turns it into a luscious silver three-dimensional apple and takes a bite out of it. “I definitely got lead poisoning, I think,” he tells PEOPLE. “I looked for edible spray paint and I couldn’t find any.” In another video he turns a lazy friend acting like a couch potato into actual potatoes. And in his most popular Vine, he takes a souvenir from Paris with him: the Eiffel Tower. Continue reading »

“Ornaments” by Aaron Rogers – an enchanted Christmas ornament will stop at nothing for a taste of milk and cookies

Aaron has created a whimsical and highly entertaining film about the death-defying efforts of a Santa Claus tree ornament in his pursuit of an elusive plate of cookies. Featuring a soundtrack comprising a few of classical music’s greatest hits, Ornaments is quite funny and a remarkably accomplished first film. The video has won awards at numerous festivals, including the Marco Island Film Festival, Anima Mundi, and The Festival of Festivals.

Humor | celebrities read mean tweets about themselves on Kimmel

If you haven’t seen these funny bits on Jimmy Kimmel before, you’re in for a tweet treat. I’ve gathered all 7 editions that have aired over the past two years to give you a quick laughing binge.

Thanks go out to my ever vigilant niece Maya for sending me cool funny stuff like this for my site.

At this point, the case could maybe, possibly be made that the market is oversaturated with late-night viral videos, and that maybe, possibly the talk shows should cut down on them a bit. That said, if only one can remain, it should be Jimmy Kimmel’s recurring “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” series. It is a national treasure. – Time Magazine

Podcasts | Adam Carolla Show-the iTunes top ranked comedy

Share

The Adam Carolla Show is the top ranked comedy podcast and Guinness World Records holder for the most downloaded podcast ever. Adam shares his thoughts on current events, interviews celebrities and rants about whatever’s bugging him today. Which is usually plenty.

The Adam Carolla Show is one of the podcasts I’ve listened to for years, although I usually only listen when he interviews a comedian or celeb I enjoy. He can be a ranting handful and an annoyance to my more pc correct friends, but he’s usually entertaining and quite funny when his rant-machine is racing and firing on all cylinders.

I recommend trying any of his podcast episodes that contain any of these recurring guests: Larry Miller, David Alan Grier, Dana Gould, Greg Fitzsimmons. You can read my post about Gould’s podcast here.

Three Lessons From Adam Carolla In Building A Podcast Empire

By Michael Wolf

As a longtime fan of Adam Carolla’s, I was both relieved and excited in February of 2009 when the comedian announced he would launch a podcast.

Relieved because, like many, I enjoyed the comedian’s hilarious rants about pretty much everything under the sun, and the recent cancellation of his syndicated radio show meant that I wouldn’t be hearing him on air anytime soon.

Excited because I thought it could mean something big for the podcast market. After all, while podcasts had grown steadily since the term was coined in 2004, they hadn’t quite fulfilled their early hype for a variety of reasons, and I thought Carolla’s entry could possibly bring more listeners to the medium.

Jerry Seinfeld is back with “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”–an excellent and amusing web based series. Episodes follow a format of Seinfeld introducing a vintage car, picking up the guest comedian, and taking them out to have coffee. A simple and engaging concept.

His Internet show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, is a well-deserved hit, and the second season features such luminaries as Sarah Silverman, David Letterman, and Don Rickles.

Each short episode is a lighthearted attempt to answer a serious question: what makes something funny?

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee – Review So Far

by Michael Record

In the new season premiere, Seinfeld takes Sarah Silverman out for a ride in a Jaguar XKE convertible. Each comedian gets paired with a car that matches their persona. So Silverman gets a sleek and sexy Jaguar, while comedy legends Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner got a silver Rolls Royce for their episode last year. In an upcoming episode, Seinfeld and David Letterman cruise the streets of Connecticut in a Volvo station wagon suped-up with a new engine by the great Paul Newman.

So why is Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee so popular? I think it is because there is a difference between watching a stand-up comedy act and watching innately funny people be themselves. Sure, the former is a crafted experience designed to make you laugh your ass off, but the humour presented in a naturally witty conversation always has that extra something due to the spontaneity of it.

Best and funniest Seinfeld bloopers collection ever

This is the best and funniest Seinfeld bloopers collection I’ve ever seen. This video includes uncut scenes that never played on TV. Hilarious! Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David pitched Seinfeld as a “show about nothing,” similar to the self-parodying “show within a show” of Season 4’s finale “The Pilot.” Seinfeld stood out from the many family and group sitcoms of its time. None of the principal Seinfeld characters were related by blood or worked together but remained close friends throughout the seasons.

Are you ready to ride the cardboard bike? This video shows how Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni created a functioning cardboard bicycle. Ride on!

Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni has created a functioning cardboard bicycle that he hopes to put into mass production in the next three months.

Despite being made almost entirely of cardboard, Gafni says the bike is strong, durable, fireproof and waterproof. And because it is made of cardboard, it will also be cheap. Gafni’s business partner Nimrod Elmish told Reuters that he expects the bike to sell at retail stores for $20.

Movies | The Descendants – the script and intriguing tales about the production, director, writer, cast

Share

The Descendants is a 2011 American comedy-drama film directed by Alexander Payne. The script by Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash is based on the novel of the same name by Kaui Hart Hemmings.

The film stars George Clooney, Shailene Woodley, Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard and Beau Bridges, and was released by Fox Searchlight Pictures in the United States on November 18, 2011 after being screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Tracing the journey of land baron Matt King who struggles with unexpected occurrences in his monotonous life, The Descendants was released to positive reviews from critics and won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as two Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture – Drama and Best Actor – Drama for Clooney.

The Descendants Movie Trailer

ABOUT THE DESCENDANTS PRODUCTION

The film began its on-location shoot in Hawaii on March 15, 2010. Most of the film was shot in Honolulu and around Hanalei Bay. Underwater photographer Don King filmed a crucial scene where Alex King sinks below the surface of a pool and screams out her grief underwater.

the_descendants_movie poster

The Descendants movie poster

The house used as Matt King’s house had one major flaw in that it lacked the banyan tree described in the book; the filmmakers solved the issue by transplanting a banyan. For the scene where the King family drives up to a ridge to look over their beautiful land, the film used a 3,000-acre private cattle ranch on the south shore of Kauai, Kipu Ranch. Kaui Hart Hemmings, the author of the novel on which the movie was based, had a cameo as Matt King’s secretary.

Post-production began on June 14, and continued into February 2011.It screened at the Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals and was originally scheduled to have a limited release on December 16, 2011, but was moved to November 23, 2011[9] and then November 18, 2011.

The soundtrack uses Hawaiian music, featuring artists including Gabby Pahinui, Ray Kane, Keola Beamer, Lena Machado, Sonny Chillingworth, Jeff Peterson, and Reverend Dennis Kamakahi.

TROUBLE IN THE TROPICS by Visual Hollywood

“My friends on the mainland think because I live in Hawaii, I live in paradise. Like a permanent vacation, we’re all just out here drinking Mai Tais shaking our hips and catching waves. Are they nuts?” — Matt King

Podcasts | The Bugle – weekly satirical news by comedians John Oliver & Andy Zaltzman

Share

The Bugle is one of my favorite comedy podcasts. For several years, I’ve been enjoying this weekly satirical news podcast created by comedians John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman.

You may know Oliver from his job as a correspondent on John Stewart’s The Daily Show, for which he won an Emmy in 2009, and his own HBO show.

And you may know Zaltzman from, uh, uh, let’s see, hmm, give me a minute… (crickets chirping) err, maybe… just a minute (paint drying)… uh…  ok, I don’t know what the hell Zaltzman might have done or be known for or is up to, but I like him plenty and laugh at him plenty more.

John is located in New York and Andy is somewhere in Great Britain, and through the marvels of modern technology, they get together every week to create this perfectly preposterous podcast.

 

Here a blurb they tarnished Wikipedia with… Oliver and Zaltzman, with their combined height of 3.59 metres, will together canoe through the murky swamp of big stories, small stories and assorted hogwash that inundates our daily world. Comprising news, sport, comment, analysis, other stuff, The Bugle is the newspaper of the future, before the future actually happens.

Video | Baby twins rock out to dad’s guitar & millions laugh

This is one of the cutest videos I’ve seen and apparently over 11 million people agree. The viral video of these two babies is short and sweet, and if you need a smile, it’s quite a treat.

Twin girls are eating their peas when their father starts playing his guitar. They look at each other, grin, and start moving their heads wildly back and forth, almost in baby unison.

Their mother, who is filming, starts laughing. And unless you are a monster, so will you. It is so pure and adorable and they love their dad’s guitar playing so much. I defy you to only watch it one time.
