Probably, most of people have a fear of zombies, and i don’t blame them! These monsters looks creepy! Well, it’s all started with a small group of people, who are so bored, that they had to go out dressed like zombies, and then make a parade. Kids were screaming, woman were crying, men were protecting their family from that creepy creatures. And that marched dressed like that, not for a while, and than, they suddenly stopped, because, no one didn’t care any more. So, if you are not was there, we will show you some pictures how it really was. I hope that you want puke after that, and if you will, sorry. So, take a look.Read More
Did you ever wonder how they can be like that? Well,make-up can do anything! Take a look.
Jack Pierce (make-up artist) (From Wikipedia)
As the head of Universal’s make-up department, Pierce is credited with designing and creating the iconic make-ups for films like Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Wolf Man (1941), and their various sequels associated with the characters. Utilizing his “out of the kit” techniques, Pierce’s make-ups were often very grueling and took a considerable amount of time to apply. Pierce was always reluctant to use latex appliances, favoring his technique of building facial features out of cotton and collodion (a strong smelling liquid plastic), or nose putty. Pierce eventually started using latex appliances, most notably a rubber nose for Lon Chaney, Jr. in The Wolf Man (1941) (the edges of the appliance are clearly visible through most of the film), and a rubber head piece for Boris Karloff in The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and Son of Frankenstein (1939). Pierce was not especially liked around Universal, which partly lead to his demise at the studio. His most notorious relationship being with Lon Chaney, Jr., the two despised each other. Both worked on four Wolf Man films and three Mummy films at Universal. Chaney claimed that Pierce compounded difficulties in the long uncomfortable process with the adding on of sticky appliances. Lon’s Wolf Man make-up consisted of yak hair being glued to his face, and having it singed with a hot iron. Chaney furthermore claimed, Pierce would purposely burn him with the hot iron. Chaney also had an allergic reaction to the make-up Pierce used on him in Ghost of Frankenstein. Later, Chaney suffered with Pierce’s laboriously wrapped bandages for three Mummy films. In Jack’s defense,the use of the fused elements of make-up was a needful 8 hour task for the desired effect that Pierce was looking for.
Unfortunately for Pierce, throughout the 1940s, make up artists were dropping their “out of the kit” techniques in favor of molded foam latex appliances that were cheaper, quicker, and more comfortable for the actors. Pierce always known as a stubborn man, continually resisted this way. The old regime at Universal was gone by the late 40s and new studio heads were looking for quicker, more cost-effective make-ups. Pierce was eventually let go from Universal in 1948 after over a decade of creating make-ups. It had become difficult for him to adapt to more modern and less costly methods. Jack was a man of tradition to his own executed designs. In the 1950s, things took a turn for the worse as television broadcasting came onto the scene. The Hollywood studios saw television as competition. Universal started the process of cutting their costs by selling needless studio assets, and trashing the unnecessary things they thought at the time were questionable.Read More
Yesterday, the richest socialites and dignitaries from England and beyond headed over to Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot race meeting, sort of like Halloween for the obscenely wealthy. As is tradition, England’s richest ladies go on parade in the most expensive of haute-couture gowns, shoes, and — most importantly — hats. Oh, the hats. Let’s take a look at The 10 Silliest Hats in England, yes?
This woman must be very brave. For starters, I’m not entirely sure that that hat doesn’t have a heartbeat. Much like the Alien in Independence Day, this hat might secretly be alive, waiting for the perfect moment to laserbeam his mindthoughts over to our President Bill Pullman. But let’s say this isn’t an otherworldy creature, and, in fact, is just a hat as she’d like you to believe. Wouldn’t you think other birds in the neighborhood would lose their sh*t at the sight of this woman? Imagine spending a nice day in the park, only to see some bird wearing a hat made out of people. You’d probably be pretty upset. Luckily, this woman seems to have a back-up plan in place in case of any unwanted deadly attacks, as her purse seems to have come equipped with an ejector seat. Good thinking, lady with no eyes.
Nothing says “British Class” like a woman wearing a miniature toilet, or “loo”, on her head. Though I imagine once she removed her hand, her head would quickly fall to the floor like so many rotted teeth. If only a tiny man were taking a “wee poo” on that hat, my personal circle of life would be complete.
After the jump, 8 Hats you do NOT want to miss…
NOTE TO LITTLE PEOPLE: If you’ve ever wanted to roll around in the famous American Gladiators Sphere for a bit, contact the woman above. She’ll be wearing said sphere on her head. Thank you, Minimanagement.
Much like Homer Simpson’s “Nacho Hat”, this head covering is simply delicious. UPDATE: Wait, is that little cake made out of PORK, as that sash indicates? In which case, let me backtrack: That cake is not delicious… it is SCRUMPTIOUS.
Remember in National Lampoon’s European Vacation, when all of their luggage got stolen and they had to buy entirely new wardrobes? I’m still not entirely convinced the above snapshot is not a still from that montage.
Guess who took a quick dip in the cemetary pool last night? Daffy Duck, seen above.
How can you tell when a loved one is being abducted by aliens? When they are wearing this hat. Her smile just screams “Take. Me. To. Your. Inbreeder.”
Guess who smelled like baby vomit all night?
This hat isn’t so much “silly” as it is “terri-f**king-fying”. It looks like she’s being chased by the Ringwraiths from Lord of the Rings. And this poor woman… look how happy she is!!! She has no idea the four whoresmen of the apocalypse are hot on her tail! Look how happy she is to see you… she’s all “Hi Bahsil! What? Behind me you say? Ghosts? Oh Bahsil, you ol’ –” THUD. El morte.
JAKARTA, Indonesia — A funky, psychedelic fish that bounces on the ocean floor like a rubber ball has been classified as a new species, a scientific journal reported.
The frogfish – which has a swirl of tan and peach zebra stripes that extend from its aqua eyes to its tail – was first discovered by scuba diving instructors off Ambon island in eastern Indonesia.
After that,they contacted Ted Pietsch from the University of Washington who submitted DNA work on the fish to the journal Copeia this month.
he fish – which the University of Washington professor has named ‘psychedelica’ – is a frogfish of the genus, Histiophryne. The fish’s stripes were probably intended to mimic coral.
Each time the fish strike the seabed, for instance, they push off with their fins and expel water from tiny gill openings to jet themselves forward. Coupled with an off-centered tail, it causes them to bounce around in a bizarre, chaotic manner.
It has fins on both sides of its body that have evolved to be leg-like. But it has several behavioral traits not previously known to other frogfish, Professor Pietsch said.
Mark Erdman, a senior adviser to the Conservation International’s marine program, said it was an exciting discover
‘I think people thought frogfishes were relatively well known and to get a new one like this is really quiet spectacular. It’s a stunning animal,’ he said.
‘It also speaks to the tremendous diversity in this region and to fact that there are still a lot of unknowns here – in Indonesia and in the Coral Triangle in general.’
The fish, which has a gelatinous fist-sized body covered with thick folds of skin that protect it from sharp-edged corals, also has a flat face with eyes directed forward, like humans, and a huge, yawning mouth.Read More
Ouch. In one of the oldest known medical interventions, a hole is drilled in the skull of a patient who is suffering from defects such as seizures or migraine headaches. The idea was to relieve pressure in the head which was believed to be causing the ailment. Today, trepanation is used on a very limited basis as a mechanism to access the brain for necessary surgery. Some people practice recreational or spiritual trepanation, presumably because they need modern medicine like they need a hole in the head.
2. Female hysteria
Women in the Victorian age were said to be suffering from female hysteria when they were moody or a little more “difficult” than usual. Fortunately for them, the treatment was something called pelvic massage. We can’t laugh too hard at this one, though. Many years later, it directly caused vibrating devices to be widely available for, um, home treatment.
3. Expanding Earth
As bizarre theories go, this one doesn’t sound that far-fetched. Expanding Earth is the idea that the planet was once a lot smaller and completely covered in one continent. If you mentally shrink the globe and try to fit the continents together like a puzzle, you could almost start to believe this theory – after all, the galaxy is said to be expanding, right? However, the Expanding Earth theory has been discredited by nearly all of Earth’s scientists.
Would you believe me if I told you that I could tell you how likely you are to commit a crime in the future without talking to you? What if I could do it just by rubbing my grubby hands all over your noggin? Phrenology was on the cutting edge of Victorian-era medical science. Practitioners claimed to be able to determine your personality, propensity for crime, and intelligence from the size and shape of your skull. Although it’s been discredited by modern medicine, there is a small but dedicated community of people who still believe that phrenology is a useful science. Yes, seriously.
The idea that California was an island separated from North America by the Gulf of California was actually a cartographic error that was blown way out of proportion. In the 16th century, Spanish explorers mistook what we now know as California for a legendary Atlantis-like paradise island. Despite being disproved by subsequent explorers, many people continued to believe in the Californian island paradise. Something tells me that even without accurate maps, you wouldn’t get many people to believe that legend these days. Other theories like Quantum Evolution may explain everything or might equally well be just as funny as these five in fifty years.
The woman, known only as Anat, had bought a new mattress for her mother as a surprise and thrown out the old one. It wasn’t until the following morning when her mother awoke screaming that she realised something was wrong. The elderly woman had been squirreling her savings away inside the mattress for years, and now it was heading for the garbage heap in Hiriya.
By the time the woman reached the site, the mattress had been moved on with up to 3,000 tons rubbish to a larger site. Speaking to Army Radio, the manager of the tip claimed that his staff are helping them in their search, and claimed that ‘Anat’ appeared “totally desperate.” Not surprising, given that the site receives over 2,500 tons of new rubbish every day.
The money is thought to have represented the entirety of the elderly woman’s life savings, but she has asked not to be identified and has refused to give further details that might aid the search. It is thought that she fears treasure hunters will reach the mattress before she does. Ask why she had chosen to stash her cash in a mattress rather than in a bank, she referred vaguely to a bad experience she had suffered in the past, but refused to go into detail.
At the time of writing, the Israeli police have stated that no report of the incident has been filed, but a picture of the woman searching a landfill has appeared in Yediot Ahronot, a daily newspaper published in Tel Aviv.Read More
