Han Solo

0

Reddit user bergerfred has made a pretty damn good representation of Han Solo encased in Carbonite as a wall decoration.  It looks pretty good if you ask me.  I don’t remember how shiny it was in Return of the Jedi, but it looks like it’s pretty spot on.  I would say that it looks alittle … Continued

Cats rule the world

0

Well, at least the internet.  But these photos unearthed by The Atlantic show that even 100 years ago, people were still obsessed with cats.  I’d go so far as to say that the humans were mistreating their feline friends, but I have a feeling that the cats had it all part of the plan. {Peta … Continued

Gotta Make ’em All

0

Reddit user I_donut_exist has started the ardous process of making LEGO models of Pokemon.  I don’t know if he plans on making models of all 719 of them (there’s a new one since that video was made, obviously), or only the original 151.  Either way, he’s got along way to go from the 13 generation 1 … Continued

NYC through the eyes of Game Boy

0

David Friedman has opened up the history books.  He’s unearthed pictures of NYC taken with his Game Boy Camera 14 years ago.  He’s documented 10 of them on his other site – Ironic Sans (which is a pretty ace website name, 2nd only to Deadly Computer I think).  Don’t worry if you only have dial … Continued

Sleeping with the Enemy

0

The ghosts of dead enemy of The Civil War that is.  In 1934, Oswald Young of Petersburg Virginia bought over 2,000 tombstones from the Poplar Grove Cemetery and used them to construct his house.  Just by looking at it you wouldn’t guess what the facade was made of (since the names are apparently facing inward). … Continued

The Chinese artist of the name Zheng Chunhui has spent the better part of 4 years carving this replica of the Chinese painting by the name of Along the River during the Qingming Festival.
