One Last Dive

The rather specific time of 3:07 am is considered by some to be the most haunted time of the day, the devil’s hour. A dive session is about to wrap but there’s just enough time to go down for one last look-see. The diver uses his flash light to make his way through the murky water and makes a chilling discovery. Can you guess what happens next? Check out One Last Dive below.

Well that got the heart beating! This creepy one-minute-long horror film was created by film maker Jason Eisener for VICE Magazine’s 3:07 AM Project. See the other three horror films inspired by the haunting hour after the jump.

Jumping Spiders Wearing Water Droplets as Hats

This may be the cutest thing you’ll see today. A new trend seems to be taking off in the jumping spider community on Batam Island, Indonesia.

Local photographer Uda Dennie spotted the spiders in his garden wearing water droplets almost as big as their little heads, on their heads. Needless to say, the fashion-forward spiders captured his attention, and Dennie trained his macro lens on them. Have a look at this cute and colourful photos after the hop.

Handymartian’s Alien Planets

Gainfully employed rats, philosophical robots, and harmonizing aliens. These are some of the inhabitants on the strange planets created by animator and illustrator, Andy Martin.

Martin started the project Handymartian’s Illustrated Aliens where he’d illustrate a new alien every day. After a month, Martin would create an animation of the planet on which his weird and wacky menagerie call home.

The first planet was created at the beginning of the year and five more colourful and kooky ones have sprung to life since then. Have a look at Martin’s animated Alien Planets after the jump.

We Review: Le Tour de France 2013

Ah! The excitement, the joy, the thrill of the sheer speed as you whizz around the track and…hold on. Prawn Prime has a note for me here. Let’s see…NOT a motorized vehicle game? Bicycles? Seriously? Man with one testicle?

Oh. Ok. Let me start again.

Ah! The beauty of the French countryside, the wind blowing through your helmet, and the introduction of such nouns as “peloton”. This is the 2013 edition of Le Tour de France, the video game. I guess there’s a lot less speed here than I’d hoped, but I’m nothing if ever the video game optimist. I grab my bagels and baguettes and go see whether the video game version of the Tour is anything like the real Tour.

Breaking Bad Countdown: All Bad Things Must Come to an End

Hall H, bitch! Yesterday, Breaking Bad’s creator and cast gathered at Comic-Con 2013 to bid farewell to the show and its fans.

Exploding Actresses

Imagine if Meg Ryan’s diner scene in When Harry Met Sally was so orgasmic that it blew her head off, or if Baby burst with excitement in the iconic lift scene from Dirty Dancing.

Using visual effects software, After Effects, Rovellini takes scenes from popular movies and shows the actresses literally losing their heads. Check out Exploding Actresses below.

Beatbox Brilliance by Tom Thum

From Brisbane, Australia, beatbox extraordinaire Tom Thum usually plies his trade in clubs and seedy bars but made an appearance at a TEDx talk in Sydney recently. From the sounds of the didgeridoo to the tabla and thumping techno music, Thum takes the audience on a journey across the continents and throughout sound itself. It’s a wonderfully vocal trip. Check it out below.

We Review: Deadpool

Deadpool is everyone’s favourite “Merc with a mouth” and all-around anti-hero. If you’re not already aware of his existence in Marvel’s X-Men universe, you’ve got a lot of catching up to do, and a lot to look forward to. In any event, Deadpool now gets his very own video game courtesy of High Moon Studios. But is Deadpool all talk and no action? Or vice versa? Or verse vica? Let’s find out.

Adrift

San Francisco’s fog is almost as iconic as the city’s Golden Gate Bridge. The foggy weather—a blanket of coastal low-lying clouds—drifts in mainly during the summer months, and has captured the attention of photographer Simon Christen. Over the course of two years, Christen spent many an early morning hiking up to the Marin Headlands, a hilly area with expansive views of the Bay Area.

A collection of his favourite shots, the short film Adrift is Christen’ love letter to the fog of San Francisco. It’s quite magical, check it out below.
