Beautifully Ugly Tattoos

Dec 05

Exhibit a

My friends know that I’m obsessed with PeopleOfWalmart.com. That was, until I discovered UgliestTattoos.com. It’s the sweet spot of lowbrow. The bullseye of trashy. The chewy center of bad decisions. Believe me, this website is guaranteed to leave you scratching your head in confusion and asking yourself, “Why?”

A few of my recent favorites:

We the People (of WalMart)

Oct 10

If only I could have back the countless hours I’ve spent sifting through the People of Walmart website! I guess I’d probably spend them on my previous addiction to Awful Plastic Surgery (FTR: my addiction was enabled by the talented and hilarious Kristy W).

The photos on People of WalMart are amazing and the copywriting is brilliant. It satisfies your people-watching craving without the painful trip to WalMart, or, um, MalWart (as I like to call it). Bingo anyone?

A quick tour of some of my recent favorites:

Bonus links: If you like People of WalMart, then you will love Awkward Family Photos, and my all-time favorite: Sexy People. Oh, and if you need a WalMart Bingo board. Go ahead, get ‘er done!

Stop-Motion Breakdancing

Oct 07

I love the stop motion style of this video by director Ben Wheatley. Del Mak and Tommy Franzen are the breakers, and get down to some serious battling in this video. Enjoy!

Landscapes of Pork

Oct 04

Wow! Bacon World. I’m stunned by these photographs by London photographer Carl Warner. It’s not unlike the recent “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” campaign here in the States. But, much better craftsmanship and much more surreal (and disgusting). I gotta give props to the artistic value of these amazing photos, but all that raw pork and cold cuts kinda grosses me out.

Thanks for the link @johnbriggsdesign!

Thru You

Mar 28

Kutiman mixes unrelated YouTube video clips edited together to make cohesive tracks that will funk you up.  I’m digging “The Mother of All Funk Chords” and “Babylon Band.” Check it out on Thru-you.com (and more of Kutiman’s work on MySpace).

Look out! It’s Bacon Explosion!

Feb 02

Is there anything truly more sexy than bacon-on-bacon? Bacon Explosion is the mother of all caloric intakes (and definitely requires a nap). This is by far one of the most disgustingly delicious things I’ve ever seen. Also, it’s interesting to note the role that Social Media applications played in the advent and popularity of this dish.

Sketch With Your Voice

Jan 29

Here’s another goodie by designer/commedian/geek Zefrank. This web-based app allows you to draw with sounds captured through your computer mic. Try playing with volume and pitch to get the line to turn in a different direction. It’s also fun to let it go for awhile to some music. I dare you to try to draw an image of something representational. Go ahead, give it a try. Fun stuff, Ze.

Nice Woody!

Check out this amazing laminated hardwood Vespa scooter built by Portuguese craftsman Carlos Alberto. The Jalopnik blog mentions that “Realistically though, we’re betting this Vespa is now quite a few pounds heftier than when it started out, and the original was not known for its swiftness so despite it’s beauty it’s probably kind of a pig in the performance department. Then again, if something looks that good, we’ll give the zero to sixty times a pass.”

I totally agree.
