flamingo-dragons

This swirly dazzling dragon is actually an up-cycled flamingo. Artist and Etsy shop owner Flamingo Incognito takes old pink flamingos and transforms them into beautifully decorated fantasy creatures. The garden sculptures are made from “weather resistant paints, paper/aluminum foil structure and recycled materials, lots of coffee and imagination.”

And her wild imagination has led to tons of whimsical dragons, sea life, and even a Plesiosaur.

Check out more fantastic garden art after the break.

dinklage coldplay red nose day

If you’ve been wondering what this whole Red Nose Day thing is all about, here’s a great intro. Red Nose Day has been raising money in the UK for 30 years to the tune of £1 billion to help save and change lives all over the world. This year, NBC has stepped up to add their support and help #RedNoseDay become more well known here in the States.

One of the huge benefits of this new push are videos designed to help raise awareness, like this one with Peter Dinklage and Coldplay teaming up to bring you Game Of Thrones: The Musical.

Check it out after the break.

As many Game Of Thrones know, the television series has begun to deviate from the books in a major way. Thankfully, Joeltronics has stepped in with a graph that will help you match episodes up with the chapters in the books and identify which bits of the books aren’t in the show and vice versa.

See the graphs after the break (click to enlarge).

Colin Furze (who we’ve featured previously for his amazingly dangerous experiments) decided to strap a jet engine, and his own ass, to a homebuilt go-kart that can reach speeds of up to 60 mph.

That’s not particularly fast to be honest, but it looks like a crazy vehicle you might find in Mad Max: Fury Road. See it in action after the break…

These nostalgic paintings by Craig Davison capture kids pretending to be Jedi, smugglers, and wookiees. They highlight the joy of a child’s imagination—a place where a stick can be a lightsaber and a couple of cardboard tubes can be a blaster. You’ll wish you were a kid again.

Capture

This propane rifle was built with just a few simple components, but the firing effect is awesome to watch. All it required was a self-igniting propane torch and some 7/8 inner diameter tubing. The Backyard Scientist went a step further however and colored the flame green with boric acid. Adding a little powdered charcoal resulted in an orange flame with sparks.

See the video of the gun in action after the break.

Pulp fiction cover art is one of my favorite things, and these covers of the Dragon Ball Z Androids Saga by artist Ástor Alexander feature Android 17 & 18, Cell, and Trunks. They are, in a word, gorgeous.

rick and morty simpsons

If you’re a fan of the Adult Swim show Rick and Morty, you’re going to love the couch gag for the May 17th Simpsons season finale. From the press release:

“This couch gag plays like a full-fledged mini-episode,” said The Simpsons creator and executive producer Matt Groening. “It’s going to be a real treat for fans of The Simpsons, fans of Rick and Morty, and fans of animated belching.”

“We are honored and blown away to be a part of The Simpsons,” said Rick and Morty co-creator and executive producer Justin Roiland. “If I could go back in time and tell myself that this would happen, I’d be like ‘No way, Jose!’ I simply can’t believe it. I think we might all be living in some kind of massive computer simulation to be honest. Look up simulation theory. That would explain how this happened.”

Check out the couch gag after the break. I guarantee that it will make you want to check out Rick and Morty if you aren’t already familiar.
