Best Geeky Yarnbombs

Share

For those unfamiliar with the term, yarnbombing — also known as yarnstorming, guerilla knitting, or urban knitting — is like graffiti mixed with photobombing. Instead of spraypainting messages and artwork on walls, people knit or crochet directly over public fixtures. Diapers for naked fountain babies. Crocheted caution tape. Bolas hung over tree limbs. Octopi attacking streetlamps.  (The editor’s personal favorite.)  Entire cars covered in form-fitted car-blankets. Car-clothes. Yarn-paint? Whatever. It’s the new, weird form of graffiti. There’s even an International Yarnbombing Day. …

The Avengers As Dragons: THEY’RE ALL DRAGONBORN

Share

  The Avengers have been re-imagined as dragons, and the result is amazing.  Notice that if you scroll down so that you can only see the bottom half of the picture, they all look like stunted, colorful tree trunks.  Also notice that nobody appreciates my observations, but I give them anyway.  Like those pamphlets in Las Vegas, except my opinions are less interesting than those.  “You don’t say.” DrawsTillIdie hopefully doesn’t have any type of terminal illness, because I appreciate their artwork. …

LEGO Hermit …

LEGO Game Boy Transformer Makes Me Appear Uncoordinated

Share

  The LEGO Game Boy Transformer gets me mad, because it showcases a talent that apparently fell out of my rather un-filled box of skills and abilities.  (The lid was still on when God was finished.)  This creation turns me into a maelstrom of negative emotions that usually ends up breaking my fragile psyche and a couple of giant ice cream cone lamps in my living room, not to mention motivating me to watch a couple of Billy Banks videos and work off …
