Here’s the newest addition to the “seedy fictional underbelly” of New York’s celluloid body. If you can get past the croaking “it’s like the city itself can you alive” line, you will rewarded with pretty slobbering girls and dance music someone from Salem made. She doesn’t remember what happened last night! Invest, emotionally! […]

French photographer Thomas Czarnecki’s fallen princess series From Enchantment to Down is some dark stuff. It’s sinister, glum, and almost glib. Unlike other IRL fairy tale shoots, these princesses don’t end as alcoholic spinsters or neglected housewives. They don’t get to. The Little Mermaid, allegedly like all precocious young girls, ends up dead, wrapped in […]

Special effects artist Kevin Kirkpatrick (The Avengers, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) has really done a stellar job bringing the cartoon teenage fiends Beavis and Butt-head into so-called real life.

You want to push it, push it real good. I know. Consider the philosophical implications of this IRL Facebook “Like” button first, before you start cooing over its cleverness. Yes, pressing a physical representation of a button that has become an integral part of all your Internet meanderings would be very, very cathartic. However, this […]

Uh-oh. Somebody ring God, ’cause… lawsuit! Is Chuck D’s lawyer still available? But really, why do these real-life, marble crack commandments exist? Because Swyndle & Hawks are thieves. They even say so. They rip iconography, flip out slogans and objectify lyrics so you can hang C.R.E.A.M. on your wall. See more 2010 work below. […]

So, about the Bosch Garden of Earthly Delights… Those mutant harp-lutes and contorted drums? They sound “horrible” in real life. Yes, some musicologists and crafty dorks of Oxford constructed exact replicas of the musical instruments from the 16th-century painting. They’re “painful to hear.” Makes sense. They look painful to play too. The academics were quite disappointed, […]
