SPOILER ALERT (if you aren’t caught up on seasons 1-3)! As someone who never got into Game of Thrones, this animated spoof of Burton’s ‘What’s This’ song embodies my reaction to the popular show I know so little about. Until you are willing to 100% commit, Game of Thrones is a foreign world that makes no sense. Nor does what all your friends keep saying about it.
Recently selected as Artist of the Week by MTV, Supaman can apparently do everything but fly. Which, incidentally, is still hella fly.
Cats by nature are pretty evil but BaneCat? Well that’s just funny and weirdly adorable.
There is so much to love about this video: her voice, the visuals, pure raw talent. But what makes me smile just a bit brighter is the fact that Kawehi made it to thank supporters of her Kickstarter project who gave her just under ten grand to tour and make music.

World champion freediver Guillaume Nery calmly walks into the water then dives into the deepest blue hole in the world, Dean’s Blue Hole, which measures 663 feet to the bottom.
The cinematography is beautiful. I have no idea how they knew to put the cameras where they did. Was there a diver filming? Nope. It was his girlfriend is also a freediver. So many mysteries. I want to become a champion freediver so I too can fall into the cracks in the ocean.
To be honest, I don’t know if this is the best or worst idea ever. That said, it’s still incredibly cool. I was all about Scholastic’s Magic Eye as a kid and relished in seeing things my friends couldn’t. Now as a grown-ass adult who stares at a computer screen all day, I’m not seeing so clearly through all that fuzz. But that doesn’t stop me from trying and admiring the Young Revel’s awesome concept.
By using one of several different techniques to view them, an autostereogram produces the illusion of depth perception. To view autostereograms, people have to “decouple” or defocus their eyes, which tricks the brain into seeing the slight variations in the repeating pattern as depth information, Raab wrote in this post on the band’s website.
In 24hrs. Shot entirely on iPhones, this rumored Apple commercial skipped the Superbowl and went straight the the Internet. Pretty smart of you Apple. It’s no ’1984′ but it definately makes a statement. iPhones are everywhere. It’s amazing how different the world has become now that amazing, creative, talented people carry mini-computers in their pockets.
