The Most Awesome Sculptures Seen in Modern Cities

Some of the most awesome sculptures are found in the form of typical monuments and statues that are shown in community recreational areas and other locations of interest. These are, in most situations, just well known characters and other traditionally important people.

Lack of Dark Energy will not Kill the Universe

A latest research on dark energy has demonstrated that our Universe is growing as predicted by the already well-known theories of cosmic inflation, but this phenomenon is not as quick as specialists have considered and will not delay "The Big Rip" or the death of the Universe.

Apartment with Balcony

Small Worlds: Absurd Suburban Landscapes in Small-Scale

Take a quick glance at the image above and you’d be forgiven for thinking that it depicts nothing more than a boring, commonplace apartment block, perhaps the kind you pass by every day on your equally boring work commute.

Zhang Yimou Portrait Made of… Socks?

Shanghai-based artist Hong Yi is certainly not the most conventional of artists; while most virtuosos in the world of art construct their creations with paint or pencil or metal or marble, Yi (who prefers to be called “Red") uses any everyday object she can get her talented little hands on, and does wonders with them. In the past, Red has assembled portraits of Taiwanese actor-singer Jay Chou out o … [Read More...]

The Top 10 PG/PG-13 Horror Movies

There’s been an earth-shattering debate (read: crybaby whining) going on at the IMDb board for Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi horror feature “Prometheus.” Apparently, the film is under threat of being slapped with a PG-13 rating, which, as many horrified posters have anxiously pointed out, is “OMG, the same rating as Twilight, so gay.” This, in spite of the fact that the film serves as something of … [Read More...]
