This will warm the cockles of your heart and teach you something

March 16, 2010 at 10:56 am (cuteness) (, , , )

Sometimes the most aggressive creatures are the most terrified.  I tried to remember this when working with teenagers, and I’m so glad these people remembered this in time to rescue a dog named Edie.

Thanks for making me cry, Neatorama.

Fly Art. Dig it.

This is my new favorite thing, and I found it on Neatorama.  See a few more after the jump, and then go to the site to see a ton more.  Bask in your lack of understanding of the captions.  Bathe in the cuteness of dead flies.  Do it.

More than meets the eye…

This is a super cool Transformer made from Thomas the Tank Engine parts.  It came from Neatorama, and it’s awesome.  Back in Brooklyn tomorrow!

I saw this on Neatorama today, via PhDComics, which is an amazing site.  I love this.

Now this is research

February 11, 2009 at 7:33 am (music) (, , , )

These three guys, Vitaly Komar, Alex Melamid and David Soldier, did some research in the 90s about what kinds of music people hate the most: instruments, genres, lyric subjects, etc.  Then they decided to create a song with every single one of those elements.  And that song is nearly 20 minutes long.

Do yourself an unfavor, and go listen to it.  Just give it until 1:26 when the opera rapping kicks in, and then have it on in the background.   I don’t know if you’ll enjoy the whole thing, but really, you should always finish what you start.   It’s a mindfuck.

Thanks to Neatorama!

Who will save your soles?

Friday morning, on a highway in Palmetto Florida, thousands of pairs of shoes “inexplicably materialized” at 7:42 AM.

This is happening.

Recipe for success

December 15, 2008 at 9:34 am (cool things i've found) (, , )

If you have a big meeting, or interview, or fight to the death coming up and want to feel jazzed up for it, I suggest you watch this.  Twice if need be.  I saw it at Neatorama and it’s simply one of the best montages I’ve ever seen.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:  40 Inspirational Speeches in 2 Minutes.   (I bet you a dollar you’re a little choked up by the time it gets to Aragon’s “a day will come when the courage of men fails…but it is not this day” part)

Smoke. Smoke! Smoke!!!!!!!

On the heels of today’s emotional assignment of the day, a completely surreal cartoon from Disney that chronicles Goofy’s attempts to….stop smoking?!?

Yep.  Watch as Goofy decides that the “red eyes” and “scratchy throat” are too much to put up with for the pleasure of smoking, and then watch him go through insane withdrawal.

Whose Spider is That?

November 10, 2008 at 12:04 pm (cool things i've found) (, , , , )

This is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while, so I thought I’d repost it- I saw it at Neatorama, but it’s originally from Urlesque, one of the best-named blogs ever. After the jump, witness the email exchange between Jane Gilles, automaton customer service representative, and David Thorne, who wants to pay his overdue bill with a picture of a spider.

Yeah.
