The Ani-Humans

Covered from head-to-toe in body paint, these brave models blend in perfectly alongside a succession of wild animals. After seven-hours in make-up over four days, they look completely at home whether tangling with a 12ft-long python, staring down cheetahs, or riding on the back of an elephant. The bizarre images were taken by wildlife photographer Lennette Newell and form part of her ‘Ani-Human’ series of portraits… A great amount of care was taken to ensure that the animals were treated humanely during the shoot. Ms Newell said: ‘Each of the animals came with their trainers and every second they were observed and watched whenever the models came in contact with the animals.” w/ photos

Talented Sea Lion

A sea lion at an aquarium in Japan has stunned visitors by writing skilfully in Chinese characters. The mammal known as Jay uses a paintbrush to write in Chinese calligraphy as he perches on a stool at the Hakkeijima Sea Paradise aquarium in Yokohama, Tokyo. Jay can be seen writing the word ‘Dragon’ in the picture above, as he uses his paint brush to make accurate strokes, to the surprise of many visitors who come to see the act for themselves. The word has much importance across Japan, China and other parts of Asia as 2012 constitutes the Year of the Dragon.” w/ photo

Coneheads Mask

You may think that the Coneheads hit their peak of popularity in the ‘70s, but in truth, the mountain of merchandising didn’t begin until their 1993 movie. One example is this 11″ Coneheads Mask made of plastic with a band in back to hold it in place. Whether you use it to ‘consume mass quantities’ or refer to your mom and dad as ‘parental units’ it will keep everyone in hysterics until the next Saturday Night Live sketch-inspired movie comes out. Personally, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a Debbie Downer trilogy. That joke never gets old!” w/ photos

Top 11 Books That Should Be Movies

“For every book that’s been made into a film, there are thousands just waiting in literature limbo for someone to give them some cinematic love. Books, however, are not films. Not all great novels are great candidates for adaptation. Although, history has shown that some ‘unfilmable’ books are just waiting for the perfect director to make it work as a film, it’s difficult to imagine a film version of One Hundred Years of Solitude that can capture the original’s scope and tone. On the other hand, there are plenty of books that should be films without requiring great liberties with their stories.” w/ photos
