We have illustrated animal books to help children learn the alphabet, why not teach people about Rock & Roll the same way? These adorable illustrations by Tracy Worrall were commissioned by Dorothy, a UK design firm based in Manchester as a Rock ‘N Roll Zoo. Featuring 77 animals who have been made famous through Rock ‘N Roll Lyrics, the adorable collection can be purchased as one big print, individually, or in themed sets of 4. If you’re a Beatles fan, maybe you’d prefer the 3 piece set which features Rocky Raccoon, the Walrus (I am the Walrus), and Blackbird all in a 12″ record sleeve. [Read more…]

not in reverse

Eran Amir has a talent for creating videos which are not what they seem. When we last covered his work, he’d created a fascinating video which seemed to be in black and white – only it was soon revealed to be in vibrant color. Now he’s created a video which was filmed in forward motion, but seems to be going backwards. Some of the tricks are easy to figure out, but we’re still stumped on how he managed to eat a sandwich in reverse. Can you figure it out? [Read more…]

Toppling Dominos

In this video, Stephen Morris gives a fantastic demonstration of how dominos work. He uses a collection of dominos made from steel, with each one 1.5x larger than the one toppling before it. Pushing over the minuscule first domino (just 5mm high and 1mm thick) starts a chain reaction that looks nearly impossible – especially when it knocks over the last domino that weighs over 100lbs.

As if hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, which stretches from Canada to Mexico, weren’t challenging enough when the weather is nice, these two crazy cats are raising the bar and doing it in the Winter. Nobody has successfully completed this arduous task, although one couple did attempt it, with a tragic fate, in the 80’s. Shawn “Pepper” Forry and Justin “Trauma” Lichter started their traverse on October 20, 2014 and have already passed Lake Tahoe in northern California, but they still have a long way to go. They have already nearly worn out the metal on their snowshoes and will soon be switching to skis until they are out of the snow. [Read more…]
