I found this cute little fellow over on Pinterest and tracked it back to an Etsy shop. Howl’s moving castle is one of, if not my favourite Ghibli films, if you haven’t seen it, you are really missing out! And he is such a cute little guy.
Found these absolutely amazing pieces of art from Dan Luvisi. He has recently been featured on Huffington post, and for good reason. The art is just awesome in its awesomeness, including the fantastic orange Tigger!
Take a look at what the author says about his work:
Now, I know, the characters I am painting are gross, scary and dark. But I am not a crazy person. I have two lovely cats (okay, may be semi-crazy), and I like to think I’m an okay guy.
But the reason I am drawing these are for an upcoming book of mine and my friend Alex Konstad, called Popped Culture. It will be childhood characters, re-imagined through the twisted culture of Hollywood and its corruptive ways.
We will be running a Kickstarter this summer, so keep your eyes out.
The great thing about these are not just the amazing images but also the stories that go with them. Go to the blog and check it out, and keep an eye out for the kick-starter project.
OMG. A real life Gravity gun from one of my favourite games of all time. I still pop back and play the half-life games even today and regularly play CSS. But the gravity gun was oh so much fun. This ‘toy’ is perhaps not real, but it is life size. Wait, a real gravity gun, imagine the carnage! Just check out the product description:
Created directly form the digital data supplied by Valve and fully accurate and authentic to the model from Half-Life 2, it’s the Half-Life 2 Gravity Gun 1:1 Scale Prop Replica! The Gravity Gun, also known as the Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator, is a full size, 1:1 scale model of the tractor beam type weapon featured in the Half-Life video games. It measures nearly 2-feet long and features glowing orange LEDs, 2 handles, 2 triggers, and 4 unique sounds directly from the video game. As a bonus, a carefully concealed fold-away kick-stand allows you to display your Gravity Gun on the shelf or desktop when not in use.
Everything about it looks awesome. Check out this unboxing!
Sometimes you come across a gadget you just have to try out, and this is definitely one of them, the Aeroskull HD. Not only does it come in an absolutely fantastic orange colour, and I mean how pretty is that thing! It plays my tunes. You know, Vanilla Ice, Richard Marx,Glenn Medeiros and other funky beats. There is just so much to love about this. Even the controller is cool. Anyway take a look over at the manufacturers site, Jarre. These do not only look great, if not a little bit like a crystal skull from that film, they sound excellent. Definite winner.

It is amazing the quality of work out there for all to see. Came across this fantastic animation by Alfred Imageworks, an animation studio based in Korea. You can see some more of their work on Vimeo and at their website http://www.alfredimageworks.com/ . It is one of those shorts you could imagine being a full 90 minute film, full of quality direction, timing and comedy. Plus Johnny Express is Orange! Cracking stuff.
There are all sorts of Aliens living throughout space.
Johnny is a Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages.
Johnny is lazy and his only desire is to sleep in his autopilot spaceship.
when the spaceship arrives at the destination, all he has to do is simply deliver the box.
However, it never goes as planned. Johnny encounters strange and bizarre planets
and always seems to cause trouble on his delivery route.
Will he be able to finish his mission without trouble?
Title says it all really. Orange bird with a nifty little haircut. He knows he’s cool, I knows he’s cool, and now you knows he’s cool too.
Take a look at Amazingly timed photos for more, well amazingly timed photos.
I was out and about in town today, and happened upon a large, bald man who looked like the Tango man from the old amazingly funny adverts. So I visited my old pal Google to ask him to refresh my memory with a suitable picture of the tango man. I don’t know what his name was, if he had one, but tango man will do. Surprisingly there are few images around, certainly not many of any quality.
Here he is, and below getting ready for action.
What was more amusing, was all the people who did come up for the search you know when you’ve been tangoed
I have selected few to share below.
Oh what a handsome man
Nothing to say.
Well hello to you!
Anyway, then I got bored and stopped looking, and went in search of the Tango video on youtube, and just so you know, the guy in town looked just like him.
This is a whole collection of Tango ads, 20 minutes of awesomeness
How to peel oranges, well its mandarins in the videos, but any small juicy oranges will surely work. Take a look at these videos for some excellent peeling techniques to impress your family and loved ones.
The annoying orange videos are a little old now, and I guess they do not get as many views either, but its still orange and its still funny, and we don’t care if it is no longer viral. Enjoy.
I ended up buying a new pair of headphones recently, why? Because I damaged the old ones after getting them repeatedly tangled, yanked, trodden on, and disregarded in a pile on my desk. While I love my new headphones, I did pay a bit of a premium for a tangle-free set. Instead I wish I had seen these fancy little headphone wraps. Not only are they very cool, there is an Orange set. How amazing is that. Bone mummy wraps? Just awesome. These funky little 100% degradable beauties are made from environmentally friendly silicone. They are dirt resistant and can be cleaned with a little water, or orangeade if you prefer. Take a look at the gallery, the manufacturers site and over at Amazon for the items themselves.
