Ultra realistic paintings on the wall

Passing by these amazing 3D paintings will make you almost believe that there are real people standing by the wall.

5 Great Cover Bands You Should Check Out

Cover songs are great for many reasons. Some are related to the original song or band that’s being covered, and others are connected with the new band that’s doing the covering.

Farewell, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The much-loved writer and journalist Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed away a bit over a week ago, on the 17th of April, after struggling for a long time with the ravages of a degenerative disease.

10 Software Pioneers of the 80s

The '80s are apparently back in style with a lot of nostalgia-capitalizing ventures are bringing them back with a glamorous vengeance. With that said, it's about time we do a different kind of excursion into the 80s.

Weird Easter and Passover Traditions around the World

Since it’s that time of the year again and most of us have, by now, finished stuffing their faces with chocolate bunnies and stollen-like cakes and confections, maybe we should consider that this holiday doesn’t mean the same thing for everyone celebrating it, even within the same religion.

Incredible Prison Art: What a Confined Artist Created with Only Prison Materials

Jesse Krimes, a 31-year old artist who had to serve a 70-month jail sentence for the possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, found the time in jail particularly hard as he had no one to talk to or no means to express himself artistically as he was once able to.

Disney’s Dark Side and Maleficent

We’ve previously shared with you a list of not widely known Disney short films and animations that are unlike what you would expect or at least… well, weird.
