Photo Study of Life in a Womens Prison

Cosmin Bumbut is a fantastic Romanian photographer I’ve known about for years, that hasn’t been properly featured at the Daily Sloth yet purely by chance. But this post isn’t about the pictures he took.

2000 Boobs for Vladimir Putin

2000 Boobs for Vladimir Putin

I will leave my opinion of Putin and political idolatry in general aside, and just say that this guy is my new hero. 1000 women, 2000 boobs and one man very dedicated to breasts.

Also: Moscow girls are NICE. This is possibly the best viral tourism ad ever. Anyone for a road trip?

The Album of Bebel

The Album of Bebel

It’s smooth, hip, sharp. Chilled not cold. It is pop without the bullshit. This is Bebel Gilberto’s Tanto Tempo Remixes album. For some, the name Gilberto might ring a bell, but this isn’t her daddy’s music. Gilberto was born into a musical family, being the daughter of Brazilian singers and performers Miucha and Joao Gilberto. The songstress cut her chops early, with a performance at Carnegie Hall alongside Brazilian legend Stan Getz, and even appeared on her mother’s solo album, Miucha, at the age of nine. She was
destined for the stage.

But some might wonder why I would write about an album that is six years old, and from a foreign artist, instead of exploring something more “recent” and local. Truth be told quality never gets old. This album is worth a pick up. Bebel’s voice is smooth. It hits in the right place. It’s not overbearing and it allows for the music that accompanies her to really develop as the album progresses. The production value on the tracks are in itself something worth nothing. Remix albums are a tough sell. For those who are music lovers, they get used to the original sounds of the album and to create a new base sound that can fit into the mold of the first album is tough. But the producers of this album broke that mold and did so in the way that allowed the album to shine as if it were an original creation. The beats flow naturally, allowing the listener to…

Douglas Adams: Parrots, The Universe and Everything

Douglas Adams: Parrots, The Universe and Everything

This is a lecture by the great Douglas Adams at University of California not long before his death. Yes, yes I know – “the video is a bloody hour and a half!”, I hear you cry. But if you can manage to carve out that much time out of your day, you really should see this. Actually it’s even a time saver, because if you went and watched a nature documentary for 90 minutes and then a comedy for another 90 it would take you twice the time, and here it’s effortlessly merged into one.

The Boob Jiggler

The Boob Jiggler

So here is a Chinese infomercial which, it seems, is trying to convince us that jiggling womens breasts will somehow get them to grow – by a process which apparently stops boobs from seeping into the stomach and instead makes the brains flow down to fill up the cleavage. No doubt fun to watch, but certainly complete hogwash as far as science goes.

Still, I firmly believe that even while this invention may do nothing to increase breast size, if it catches on it may bring about world peace.

The Anatomy of a Toy: The Screwed-up Art of Jason Freeny

Jason Freeny is a ridiculously talented designer that likes to show us what it would look like if you ripped the skin off of some of our favorite cartoon and video game characters. It’s a very interesting study into anatomy and general screwed-upness. It is also quite awesome.

Stitching Dreams: Amazing Examples of Panography

Stitching Dreams: Amazing Examples of Panography

Panography is a photo merging technique that’s a close cousin to panoramic photography. But whereas panoramic photography relies on a strict grid to create one huge image, Panography uses a “scattered” structure where the pictures aren’t taken in a neat sequence from a tripod, but instead usually hand-held and seemingly without any order whatsoever.

This Should End Well – KISS Declares War on Anonymous

Looks like Anonymous done goofed and pissed off The Demon himself, Gene Simmons.

If you have no idea what any of that meant, you may be one of the lucky delicate internet virgins that haven’t heard of Anonymous. They are a loosely-knit group of hackers and internet mischief-makers that frequent one of the last bastions of anarchy and true anonymity on the internet, 4chan. Between swapping child porn and creating internet memes they put on their tights and fight injustice on the web.

Making Movies and Negotiating Obscenities

Making Movies and Negotiating Obscenities

Prior to it’s theatrical release in 1975.  ”Monty Python and The Holy Grail” was privately screened before a member of  the British Board of Film Classification (in charge of movie ratings). Producer Mark Forstater sent the following  letter to co-producer Michael White notifying him of the changes they needed to make in order to get a lower (and as such more commercial) rating.
