For the low, low price of only $125 night (which actually isn’t so bad for a regular hotel), you too can stay in a single hotel room that is one half of a public restroom in a park. Of course, you also have to factor in the cash to travel to Osaka to do it. […]
If someone out there is making something or being even vaguely creative, there’s a better-than-average chance that I’ll be stupidly excited about it. When that something is blisteringly awesome in the extreme, I generally flop around in paroxysms of joy for a while before telling everyone I know about it. I encountered the Ukiyo-e Heroes […]
Gundam Wing is NOT my favorite Gundam show but the Epyon is my favorite Gundam for two simple reasons: It has a fucking whip, and… its face looks like an Akira Toriyama character. Do you want your own giant robot? Of course you do; who doesn’t? Well, if you have a mere $1.3 million gathering […]
Can you see the Chinese man in these pictures? Camo Paintings! His art looks like the thermoptic camouflage in Ghost in the Shell, where you wouldn’t notice it unless you were looking. It’s pretty sweet- though that soda aisle in the first pictures is the really shocking thing. Look at all those different kinds!
The article says these pictures are of an artist who does body art to blend in with his surroundings…but I can’t se any artist. Article Gallery Oooooh…there he is! That’s pretty freaking cool.

Article Sure, his stuff might be kind of head-scratching (sneakers encrusted in diamonds?) and tacky-looking, but at least it’s not sharks in formaldehyde or Jesus made out of rotting ground beef. I know art is always evolving and […]
Japanese pop-artist Takashi Murakami will soon be living on skid row, with an annual income that barely scratches $3.5 million dollars. Seriously, Takashi – that’s a fuckton of money. I’m sure you’ll find a way to cope with your reduced income. But the real story here is that his previous year’s income was $8 million…that’s […]
This weekend’s release of the Jonah Hex film prompted me to consider the man who helped create the character, Filipino comic-book artist Tony DeZuniga. Unbeknownst to many American comic book fans, Filipinos have had a huge influence on mainstream comics – Ernie Chan, Alex Niño, Carlo Pagulayan, Whilce Portacio, Nesto Redonodo, Romeo Tanghal, and Lenil […]
English artist Sebastian Horsley, who gained infamy a decade ago by taking part in a Filipino crucifixion ceremony, died yesterday of a heroin overdose. To the Filipinos inflicting pain upon yourself is both an act of faith and a test of faith. Protection from pain is interpreted by participants as evidence not only of divine […]
Here’s one for our resident Asian design major, Musashi: a nifty gallery of “creative infography” that presents complex information in a simple and visually appealing fashion. (via MeFi)
Some genius created an awesome stop-motion video of Mario making a two-dimensional journey around his school thanks to the magic of paper cutouts. (via BoingBoing)
