Slittens: Kittens And Sloths Together At Last

The genius mad scientist behind the SLITTENS Tumblr has managed to tap into an artery of bizarre Internet cuteness that we never even knew existed. People love both kittens and sloths, so this Tumblr blogger decided to give us the best of both worlds by digitally combining them into “slittens.”

The cherry on top is the Slittens blog’s correspondence with fans. Most of it seems pretty funny, but our favorite is the response when one reader asks whether these digital manipulations are real or fake; “REAL.”

Visitors can also submit kitten photos, so if you want your kitten to get a facelift, give it a try!

Dollar Bills Turned Into Portraits Of American Icons

Why are presidents and political activists the only people who tend to get recognition on national currencies? In a series called American Iconomics, artist James Charles explored what our money might look like if it was dedicated to the cultural icons and characters who have shaped America’s, and the world’s, cultural evolution.

With what must have been incredibly careful and painstaking ink work, the artist incorporated the familiar presidents’ faces into his new creations, until their original faces are almost lost in their new identities. Even the text at the bottom of each (real, authentic) bill is altered to carry a message together with his portrait.

Couch Surfing In The USA: Three Friends, Two Dogs And One Couch

Three friends (and two dogs) who took a summer roadtrip across North America together came up with a novel way to keep track of the many beautiful landscapes they saw. When they posed for photos, they dragged their van’s futon out to the most picturesque locations they could find to create a photo series that is both beautiful and silly.

Some of you might have noticed that, in each photo, someone is either looking away from the camera or doing something else. According to Reddit userthezim0090, who uploaded what he said are his friends’ photos, the idea behind this touch was “to use the “imperfection” of the portraits to reflect the imperfections that the three of them saw in humanity when compared to nature.” Who could have expected such depth from three friends on a futon in the mountains?

Some of the sweetest rock ballads were inspired by daddy’s girls: Billy Joel’s “Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel),” Bruce Springsteen’s “When You Need Me,” Phil Collins’ “You’ll Be In My Heart,” and other emotional tracks you’d find on a father-daughter dance compilation album.

Even Bono — who came under fire recently when Apple installed the new U2 album on iTunes users’ devices without asking — covered Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” at his daughter Eve’s 21st birthday party.

From models and DJs to actors and musicians, meet the new crop of muses of the most celebrated rock stars.

That Laser Cat Yearbook Photo Just Got Even More Awesome

How do you take a laser cat yearbook photo to the next level? Add a chihuahua and a principal, and do it all to spread awareness about animal adoption.

Draven Rodriguez, a senior at upstate New York’s Schenectady High School, made headlines earlier this month when he launched an online campaign to get his school’sapproval of his cat-and-laser portrait for the 2015 yearbook. The photo featured Rodriguez posing in a suit while holding his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, with pink and blue beams shooting across the image.

At the time, school district spokeswoman Karen Corona told Schenectady’s Daily Gazette the photo could appear somewhere in the yearbook but would not appear alongside the professional senior portraits.

Now, Rodriguez’s cat-and-laser theme is getting even more prominent placement thanks to the addition of Principal Diane Wilkinson and her dog, Vivienne.

Rodriguez and Wilkinson posed for a new portrait, taken by photographer Vincent Giordano from Trinacria Photography, that will be featured on the principal’s page in the annual yearbook along with a message about animal rescue, according to the Albany Times Union. The image shows Rodriguez and Mr. Bigglesworth — who is a rescue cat — standing next to Wilkinson and Vivienne. There are laser beams, too, of course.

The joint photo was Wilkinson’s idea.

Amazon Warns About ‘Racial Prejudices’ In ‘Tom And Jerry’

TOM JERRY

Cartoons today aren’t like they used to be, and maybe that’s a good thing.

BBC reports that Amazon Prime is accompanying “Tom and Jerry” with a cautionary statement about depictions of racism.

In a screenshot above, “Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume” is given the following warning:

“Tom & Jerry” shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.

The decision to include the warning definitely ruffled some feathers, with fans on Twitter lamenting the political correctness of the situation. One fan called it “Political correctness gone mad.” Another added, “So, Tom is basically a racist, sexist, chain-smoking cat. COME ON.”

The cartoon has come under fire in the past for depictions of blackface and appearances by the maid, Mammy Two Shoes.

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.

Read The Original Deleted Ending To ‘The Shining’

via Business Insider: 

If you’ve seen “The Shining,” you know the film (spoiler) ends with Jack Nicholson’s demise looming over the haunted Overlook Hotel; however, that wasn’t always the way the movie originally ended.

jack nicholson the shining

When the film first debuted it included an epilogue in a hospital where both Wendy and Danny went afterward to recover.

Co-screenwriter, Diane Johnson explained the original decision to include the scene:

“Kubrick felt that we should see them in the hospital so we would know that they were all right,” said Johnson. “He had a soft spot for Wendy and Danny and thought that, at the end of a horror film, the audience should be reassured that everything was back to normal.”

However, after Kubrick showed the film to former publicist for Warner Brothers, Julian Senior, right before its debut he said the original ending didn’t work for him.

The scene was then removed right after the films release with all of the copies supposedly being destroyed.

If you’re wondering how the scene played out “Toy Story 3” director Lee Unkrich hosts a site dedicated to the film, appropriately titled The Overlook Hotel, where he posted the script from the deleted scene.

Check it out below:

If you need some imagery with your reading, there are also three Polaroids that remain of the scene’s existence.
