SCHICK-Animal-Beards-FERRET-web

There’s facial hair, and then there’s strapping a live, sharp clawed animal to your face. Either way it’s pretty manly. That’s the gist behind this 3 part series of photo manipulations that sees various members of the Mustelidae family keeping faces warm (no men or animals were harmed in the making).

The series was created by image production company Electric Art of Sydney for Schick New Zealand and their “Free Your Skin” campaign.

But honestly – if you had a beard this gloriously alive, would you really want to shave it off? [Read more...]

David Shale Photographs Deep Sea Creatures Hydromedusa

Considering that oceans cover roughly 70% of Earth’s surface, we have only explored a fraction of the planet we occupy… and a lot of that is deep, deep underwater. Photographer David Shale has spent the last four decades documenting the creatures you find in these deep and hostile environments, capturing the animals with remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and bringing them up to be photographed in a circular cold water tank called a kreisel against a black background. His hard work – done in a cold room on a moving ship – gives us a glimpse of the beautiful, and terrifying creatures of the deep. [Read more...]

If you’ve seen movies like “Shaun of the Dead” or “The World’s End”, you already know the work of Edgar Wright… and you also know he’s a master of visual comedy. His films use elements forgotten by much of the comedy genre, not to mention mainstream filmmakers as a whole. Good thing for us Tony Zhou has created a hilarious, and thought provoking critique of Wright’s sight-gags and British visual comedy as a whole, while pointing out the general laziness found in many Hollywood comedies.

Weeks-block-LIFE1 header

Depending on where you are in life, these graphics will either be highly motivating or panic inducing.

We all know our life has a limited number of years, and if we’re optimistic that might be 90. You’d think with such a small number like 90 we’d be more willing to make the most of each year, but most of us are pretty short sighted, letting each small day pass without any more motivation than getting to those two glorious days we call the weekend. Maybe there’s a better way to visualize this…

Tim Urban over at the hilariously thought provoking Wait But Why is helping us see our life broken down into its segments of time. Where does your life fit in? [Read more...]

1 A day in the life of Everyday Astronaut by Tim Dodd

Many of us have had childhood dreams of becoming astronauts, creating space ships out of refrigerator boxes and imagining ourselves flying through space. Photographer Tim Dodd never let his childlike wonder disappear and still has fun playing astronaut. After placing the winning (and only) bid for a Russian high altitude space suit in an RRauction, Dodd began enlisting the help of fellow Redditors to help him come up with amazing ideas for an astronaut suit photo shoot. After months of putting his ideas into action, he has finally released his series, which he calls “A Day in the Life of Everyday Astronaut” on r/Space. Among the pictures are hidden “Easter Eggs” that will delight Space Geeks of all ages- see how many you can spot! [Read more...]
