This Is What Even A Little Too Much Sun Can Do To Your Skin. Yikes.

Summer is a time to get out and enjoy the sunshine. While most of us know the importance of sunscreen and the danger over exposure can inflict, we still often let ourselves just shrug it off. It’s not like you got a sunburn, so you’re fine, right?

Nope. As this video from artist Thomas Leveritt shows, that’s just not true. By asking strangers to pose in front of a UV camera, Leveritt reveals that there’s much more going on than we realize when we step out into the sunlight. You’re going to think twice before the next time you go out in the sun.

Imagine how much worse it would have been if he went to a tanning salon.

Man From The Audience Gets Called Up On Stage To Sing… And He Totally Nails It.

During all her concerts, singer Lea Salonga (who provided the singing voice of Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin) likes to call someone up from the audience to sing a duet of A Whole New World with her, never knowing what to really expect.

This time though she happened to ask a young inspiring singer called Jared Young onto the stage, and he absolutely nailed the song. Giving the audience a real musical treat.

That little curtsy at the end was adorable, as was the whole thing. (Hopefully someone took this guy aside at the end of the show, he was amazing!)

Give Umbrellas to Hundreds of People with Good Timing and Here’s What Happens.

OK Go, the alt rock band hailing from Chicago who became famous for their visually stunning videos, has wowed the world again. Just like the treadmill-dancing “Here It Goes Again” music video and their optical illusion-laden “The Writing’s on the Wall,” their new release is a showstopper. The video for “I Won’t Let You Down” involved lots of people, umbrellas and good timing. Keeping up their reputation for tight choreography and crazy, large-scale sets, this video features a huge cast of umbrella-wielding backup dancers and aerial shots. It also features the Honda UNI-CUB, described as a “personal mobility device” that operates basically like a scooter without handlebars. 

We’re not sure how well the UNI-CUB will catch on, but it works great in the video.

Two Homeless Dogs Living In A Junkyard Get Rescued And Immediately Shown Love.

Hope For Paws received a call about two homeless dogs living in a junkyard in a rough part of Los Angeles. When Eldad Hagar and Lisa Arturo arrived at the scene, they found the pair right away. However, the female was more fearful, so they needed to rescue her first.

The tight space she crawled into made it very difficult for them to reach her, but eventually they were able to gently pull her to safety. That’s when her brother showed himself to check if she was OK, completely ignoring the treats even though he was starving. Checking in on his sister was priority number one.

What a beautiful pair of dogs, who ever gives these siblings a forever home will be a very lucky person.

These Objects Are Distorted, But No Digital Manipulation Was Used In Their Making.

When you walk into a Robert Lazzarini exhibit, you might get a little dizzy. That’s understandable, considering everything you’re looking at was distorted to the extreme. You know what you think something should look like, but here, that’s not going to happen. Photos sadly don’t do these sculptures justice, because it’s easy to mistake them for digitally altered images. What you’re seeing is an actual, three-dimensional sculpture.  

Lazzarini morphs everyday items with dimensions we’re familiar with, like telephones, chairs, tools, and musical instruments. These items are built for human use, and we expect them to conform to human dimensions. Lazzarini’s work takes that expectation and throws it out the window. He creates warped versions of these otherwise totally recognizable objects.

The result is that, instead of passing by an everyday item, we’re forced to look at it more carefully. We might even find a new way of looking at something we thought we knew. The details in each item are faithfully reproduced, from the buttons on the phone to the features on the skulls. To create the distorted effect, Lazzarini uses a mathematical process to get all of the proportions just right.

As you can see in this video, there is no one “correct” way to look at these sculptures; each angle creates a new distortion. Also, Lazzarini’s pieces are all made from the materials the objects would be made from in real life. The violin is made from wood, the skull is made from bone, and the revolver is made from metal and wood. Keeping the materials true to life means that the pieces become even more boggling, as it becomes clear that no manipulation was applied to a completed object. Each sculpture was designed and built to look like this.

Lazzarini’s exhibit in the Aldrich Museum of Art also featured slanted walls, further disorienting visitors and taking distortion to the next level. 

The walls, which slant at different angles, throw off the visitor’s expectations before they even explore the sculptures.

Lazzarini says these sculptures are less about making the object different, but about seeing how far the object’s dimensions can be pushed while still keeping it recognizable. Despite their altered dimensions, the items can still instantly be read. “I start out with a notion of something, and go through a process of peeling away until it’s completely reduced,” he explained in an interview, “whatever that particular object is.”

That’s certainly one new way to look at a telephone. Now if only I had a window like that in my home growing up. I would have certainly been much different than I am today.

This Dog Is So Bored Of Waiting For His Owner That He Actually Honks The Horn.

First of all: don’t leave your animals in the car. Not only does it make them restless, but it can be dangerous.

This hilarious dog was clearly fed up with waiting in a car. He wanted to get home and take a nap, but his owner was taking way too long in the grocery store. Instead of continuing to wait, this little guy took matters into his own paws in the most adorable way possible. It’s the cutest case of road rage I’ve ever seen.

You can bet your life this dog has done this many times before. I wonder where he learned this from…

This Video Will Make You Question Your View Of Homelessness.

When is the last time you gave money to a homeless person on the street? If you did, did you happen to notice what they were wearing? A new video from Joseph Costello, an Austin Texas based video maker, shows that we’re more biased towards what homeless people are wearing than we thought.

In the video, Joseph and his friend Sandy (who is homeless), conduct a social experiment. First they have Sandy panhandle as a homeless man. Then they give Sandy a haircut and have him dress in a suit. The difference in how Sandy is treated is startling.

You have to see what happens at 1:22.

Even a homeless man tried to give him money. This certainly makes you think about your biases toward the homeless or people in need.
