Aphex Twin Face Mapping

Richard James comes over all Being John Malkovich at the London Electronic Festival as he uses realtime face mapping technology to put that freaky face of his on his fans. Just what the world needs, an army of Aphex Twin. No I’m serious, that’s just what the world needs.

Protect Ya Neck (Busker Version) by Lewis Floyd Henry

Yo! This guy’s literally taking the music to the streets. Take a Wu-Tang Clan classic, an afro, guitar, mic, and some drums put them all together with some fine talent and what do you get? You get a lesson in badassery. If I saw this guy busking in the street I wouldn’t be able to [...]

First Choice Ad - Everyone’s Taken Care Of

Screaming people falling about in confusion and agony. Pellets of unknown origin falling through the pool, polluting it, and messing it up. Utter chaos with everyone scrambling about not knowing what’s going on, fighting for space, and having no regard for their fellow human. Sounds like a First Choice holiday to me.

The Social Network Trailer Music Makes *EVERYTHING* Dramatic

Hey look, if you put the Radiohead “Creep” cover from The Social Network trailer over any footage it manages to make it seem sinister and melancholy, no matter what, as Urlesque demonstrate here. Even our beloved memes, (although Keyboard Cat is quite fitting) are rendered dramatic and slightly scary. Why Lord, WHY!?

David Cross on Conservatives

Those right-wing Conservatives, they’re a fun bunch aren’t they. Obama’s a Nazi, Bush was the Messiah, the earth is flat, Jesus loves you, Europe’s full of Communists. Crazy fools. But without them who would be fighting for regressive attitudes and standing up for our rights to be idiots?

Dancing Swedish Policeman

It seems this is what happened to Techno Viking. He became a policeman in Sweden. If all else fails then there’s always this. So chin up, don’t be down. Because here’s a dancing fucking policeman.

Ants in a Scanner: A 5 Year Time Lapse

This guy put a colony of ants in his scanner, and he scanned the nest every week. The results are what you see before you. Some people have jobs, some people have families, this guy has an ant colony in his scanner. I know which I’d prefer. Now to get me a scanner…

Catception

He’s in your dreamz, changing you life. Yes it’s dramatic cat Inception inspired craziness. Because when memes meet memes you get meta-memes and we’re all for that over here on Muppetism. But never divide memes by memes, that could be very dangerous. Very dangerous, indeed.

Lego Starcraft: Brick Rush

When two geek worlds collide, LEGO and Starcraft, this happens, and my god it’s epic. Except they made a mistake, let’s see who can spot it. But for the rest of us just enjoy the fruit of what’s obviously a fair few hours’ labour.

YTcracker - “The Link”

8-bit chiptune Zelda dubstep awesomeness is the order of the day with this badass video and track. Yo! So grab that NES console and throw it upside your head. Let’s ride the internets to the planet Nintendo and fuck shit up!

Every Lightsaber Ignition & Retraction

Vrrrwwwoooom. Yes, we all love the sound of a lightsaber being unleashed, and here is every one that takes place in the Star Wars movies in chronological order, and then all the retractions neatly in reverse order. Nice one. I think I just lightsabered in my pants.

Interior Semiotics

Interior, who-shot-who-with-the-what-now? Here it is, performance art. A young woman rubs some dirt and tinned spaghetti on her shirt, recites some nonsense, cuts a hole in the crotch of her tights, urinates on the floor, cleans it up with her shirt, and then leaves. Yes, wtf. WTF, indeed.

Can the Twilight Saga Stop a Bullet?

Am interesting question, one that surely has been on everyone’s lips since this lame bunch of batshit books starting fouling the world with their poisoning presence. Well this guy’s gone one further and brought the imagined into the real. Bravo to him.

Girl Launched to Sky on Blob

Wowhoah! This goes to show you what you can achieve with a couple of fat guys, a skinny girl, a blobby inflatable thing, and a lake. You can launch people to the moon, baby! To the fucking moon!!!!! Well, quite high into the sky anyway.
