Will You Be My Ghoul Friend?

Monsters need some love, too. And back in the 60s, the Topps candy company tasked the late pulp artist Norman Saunders with painting a series of cards called Frankenstein Valentine Stickers.

Saunders painted iconic monsters from TV and film together with the cute, punny, and creepy pick-up lines they might try on the opposite sex. Mole Man has eyes for your silky skin, while Dracula vants you in vein, and all Zacherle hopes for is a ghoul friend.

Have a look at the Frankenstein Valentine Stickers after the jump.

Play This: Maverick Bird

At the height of its existence, the fat-lipped Flappy Bird was netting its creator – Mr Dong – a tidy USD 50,000 a day in revenue. But it ruffled too many feathers and was recently removed from both Google Play and Apple’s App Store.

Though it’s gone from the official channels, the silliness of Flappy Bird lives on. We’ve seen Squishy Bird, Flappy Doge, and just the other day indie developer Terry Cavanagh showed his appreciation by releasing Maverick Bird.

Better known for the dangerously addictive and fiendishly difficult Super Hexagon, Cavanagh tweaks the Flappy Bird mechanics by adding a dive action. The thumping musical accompaniment is provided by KOZILEK.

Let your rage continue at terrycavanaghgames.com/maverickbird and let us know how far you got.

Drugs Exposed to Film Negatives

Different drugs have different effects on people. In her series entitled All You Can Feel, Berlin-born artist Sarah Schöenfeld wanted to know what kind of impression certain drugs had on inanimate objects.

Schöenfeld squeezed drops of different prescriptive and illicit dugs onto film negatives. Each substance affected the coating of the film differently. The resulting chemical reactions make for some striking photography. Have a look at some of the image after the jump.

Final Fantasy XIII 16-bit RETRO-spective

The next installment of Final Fantasy XIII hits us later this month. It’s been a while coming, and it’s always good to catch up story-wise either by replaying the prior games in the series (or playing for the first time, if you’ve not done that yet!), or if you’re lazy, re-reading old reviews. Square Enix has provided a more entertaining way of catching up with the story, though: a 16-bit SNES-style RETRO-spective. Watch it below.

It Will Be Fun, They Said

What looks like a fun music video takes an unexpected turn when some school goers decide to cut class and spend the glorious day frolicking on the beach. A boy and girl hope to turn their canoodling to coitus in the dunes, but are interrupted in a most disturbing way. See what happens below, but be warned the content is rather graphic.

This PSA was supposedly created for the Learn for Life Foundation of Western Australia.

Speaking of dumb ways to die, have a look at another of Australia’s unforgettable PSAs.
