Humanity's Unwitting Alien Enslavement Has Never Looked More Adorable

Truck Torrence, better known as 100% Soft, has made a career of taking icons of pop culture and making them unbelievably, almost excruciatingly cute.

Artist Draws Eminem Out Of Spaghetti, Because Memes Never Die

Video: Despite critical and commercial success and a storied career, the two words that have followed Eminem the longest are “mum’s spaghetti,” from his Academy Award-winning song “Lose Yourself.” Bait-and-switch text memes were built around it.


This Floating Walkway Is Christo's First Truly Important Work Of Art

Over the weekend, my social media feeds were draped in neon orange as the world exuberantly shared the first photos of Christo’s latest work, The Floating Piers, a 3km walkway across an Italian lake. It is easily the artist’s most ambitious piece from an engineering perspective — and one that actually adds value to its location.

For a facsimile of a scientifically unfeasible guy who abducts babies and commands an army of the dead, the watermelon Night King looks pretty friendly!
