The Seven Sutherland Sisters With World's Longest Hair

The Seven Sutherland Sisters of Lockport, New York, were world-famous for their incredible hair, which reportedly had a collective length of 37 feet.

The Sutherland children were all musically inclined and often performed around New York State as the "Sutherland Concert of Seven Sisters and One Brother." In 1881, they performed at the Atlanta Exposition in Georgia. They traveled with "W.W. Coles Colossal Shows" in 1882 and joined "Barnum and Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth" by 1884.

Sarah Sutherland (1845 - 1919)

Victoria Sutherland (1849 - 1902)

Isabella Sutherland (1852 - 1914)

Naomi Sutherland (1858 - 1893)

Another Evil Mickey Mouse

I love finding random and darker versions of cute icons, like Mickey Mouse as they subvert what was once a staple part of Western kid culture into zombies or capitalist scum with a mission to destroy. It's the latter theory that forms the foundations for this mad video found from HERE.
According to the post, "Toy Box Series, Episode 3: Picture Book 1936” (Omocha-Bako Series, Dai-3-Wa: Ehon 1936) is a 1934 propaganda-ish film about a future (1936) conflict started by a swarm of evil, bat-riding Mickey Mouse clones that descend on a tiny island inhabited by peace-loving dolls and cats (including a Felix lookalike). Overwhelmed by the attack, the desperate island residents bang on the cover of a large picture book to enlist the help of Momotaro, Urashima Taro (the Japanese version of Rip Van Winkle), and other traditional fairy tale heroes and characters. After Urashima Taro uses his famous “mystery box” to turn the big Mickey into a decrepit old fogey."
Sounds like a blatant propaganda vid to create animosity of the West in the eyes of the East. In our day and age though, it can be seen as a pretty amusing animation with some seriously ripped off characters. Enjoy!

Color Blind artist Learns to Paint by Hearing

According to an article on the Times Online, Neil Harbisson is a color-blind (Black & white sight only) artist who has recently been given the ability to paint with a full range of colors using a small gadget that allows him to "hear" the hue of the color pallette. He has been fitted with a device called an Eyeborg, which converts 360 colours into different sounds.

"As an art student at Dartington College of Arts in Devon, he painted only in black and white because that is all he saw. But three years ago he met Adam Montandon, a cybernetics expert who came to give a lecture at the college.

After the talk, Montandon was told of Harbisson’s condition and he took up the challenge of solving the problem, enabling Harbisson to paint in colour. The artist suffers from achromatopsia – or complete congenital colour blindness.

Montandon created the Eyeborg system, which is a head-mounted digital camera that reads the colours directly in front of it. The camera is connected to a laptop computer, carried in a backpack, which slows down the frequency of light waves to the frequency of sound waves. The computer then sends the “sound” of each colour to an earpiece worn by Harbisson. Montandon expects the system eventually to be as small as an MP3 player."

How it works

1. Lens examines colour artist is looking at

2. Computer analyses colour and calculates an equivalent sound frequency

3. Earpiece emits a noise to tell artist which colour he is looking at

4. Artist has to learn which sounds identify particular colours

Simply amazing!!!!!

PHESP Review: The Mist (Film)

PHESP Review: The Mist (Film)

Stephen King does it again
So how do you review a film without giving too much away and ruining it for those who haven’t watched it yet? Well let’s just say this film is well worth a watch and kept me curious and intrigued till the end and I would definitely recommend it to all of yall. In short, this film is a ‘fiction-thriller bloody monster ‘film that should please most people.

The Mist is a horror novel originally written by King in 1980 and made into a film in 2007 which was written and directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile) and stars Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Marcia Gay Harden (Into The Wild, Mystic River), Toby Jones (Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets) and Andre Braugher (Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer).
The cast isn’t anything special but actually, I thought the actors did a good job in this one. I went into the cinema to watch The Mist without knowing anything at all about it and came out very pleased. There were moments when I thought ‘ok, this could get really shit, really quickly’ but again, was always pleasantly surprised especially with the ending which, let’s just say is NOT Hollywood’s usual disaster of ‘happily ever after’ style crap.

I haven’t read the novel but this film really made me want to.. if you’re interested, I recommend not watching any previews or reading any really in depth reviews and just going to watch it with an open mind. Enjoy!

Cast 3/5
Story line 4/5
Creativity 4/5
Suspense 4/5
Gore 4/5
Over all 4/5

Tire Sculptures

Tires wear out every few years, and then you have to replace them. But what happens with the old tires? Often they are ground down and made into a surface for a running track. Or they are made into a sculptures, like the ones shown below:

Andy Gregg's bike furniture

These are created by Rama Anand - Delhi Art Gallery.

When one can make eco-friendly furniture out of these worn-out tires then why disposing them off! State of the art furniture can be created using these; ranging from tables, chairs, sofas & apart from these, there are many other uses too: purse, shoes, sandals, sculptures, well the list seems to be never ending.
And the best part is there wont be much any wear & tear at all, it can be really be ultra hard wearing & weather proof.
