Cartoon Café

It’s never boring scrolling through a vibrant Instagram food scene, and it seems like every café these days is trying to satisfy the need of a hungry eye.

Of all the insta-worthy cafes, here’s one that will make you feel like you walked into a cartoon.

From the moment you cross the café’s doorstep, you are greeted by comic strips plastered all over the interior, from walls and floors to the furniture and dishes, so you can’t help but feel as if you magically found a secret entrance to the unreal comic world.

And it all makes sense, as Café got its inspiration from Korean TV hit “W – Two Worlds” by Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo, in which the characters enter a fantasy webtoon world.

Sadly, if you don’t live in South Korea, specifically in Seoul, you will have to put a bit more effort to experience the illusion of being in a book.

Fantastic!!!

Badass

I do not condone or endorse blatant thievery, but I do endorse foolery produced by raccoons, and quite fucking frankly, I condone blatant thievery by a criminal ball of fur who only gives a fuck about getting some deliciousness in the robber bag they call a stomach.

That leads me to this robber who proves that not all Canadians are polite and well-mannered creatures who are perfect houseguests.

This one’s a straight-up rude bitch and makes zero apologies for it. My idol!

Jenny Serwylo of Toronto tells the Toronto Star that on Tuesday night, she was getting ready to go to bed when she heard some noises coming from her kitchen. Jenny went to investigate and found a band of Goldilocks’ raccoon cousins stealing her food. Jenny grabbed a broom to shoo their thieving asses out, and two of them skedaddled off. But this one didn’t…

This hero chilled out behind Jenny’s toaster oven (above) and nibbled on some English muffins while throwing her, “Trick, try ME”, eyes.

Jenny was smart and decided not to try to tussle with a motherfucker who is just daring you to mess with ’em. She called 311, but the city told her to call a 24-hour wildlife removal company. None answered her call, so Jenny had two choices: 1. Try to tussle with the bread bandit again. Or 2. Pack up her things, hand her keys over to the bread bandit, and move out. Strangely enough, Jenny went with option 1.

Once the bread bandit ate up all of the bread in Jenny’s kitchen, the raccoon calmly exited out through the kitchen window like nothing.

I’d like to think that even Jenny stood back like, “What a badass bitch.”

That raccoon was pretty smart in my opinion. I am surprised he didn’t grab a sponge and clean that toaster oven a tad.

Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker

When I heard there was going to be a movie about the origin of the Joker, I just assumed there was a Netflix documentary about Kellyanne Conway coming out.

Luckily, they meant Batman’s sparring partner! 

Joaquin Phoenixis taking over the role as “Arthur” and we didn’t have to wait long for the film studio to drop a lewk at what Arthur looks like when he hits up the MAC counter.

As a fan of DC (and Marvel) comics and on serious note, I very much approve Joaquin’s Joker look. He looks mad and creepy as hell. In my opinion this looks for a mature audience, unlike Jared Leto’s trying-hard incarnation on Suicide Squad. 

Heath Ledger’s Joker set the bar very high, and it’s a good thing to cast actors in typical serious roles, like Phoenix, to portrait them.

Bitch looks absolutely insane and I’m buying it.

Batdick

Looks like the people over at DC were inspired by their latest Batman, Ben Affleck, much more than anyone first thought. Not really by his performance of Batman itself, but by the performance of his dick in Gone Girl. Does art imitate life or life imitate art? Who knows.

Vice is reporting that in the first of a three-issue miniseries called Damned, our favourite extremely rich and broody super hero Batman, shows us his tool, and not one from around his belt, honey.

That’s right! Batman shows dick, and we aren’t talking Grayson. The NSFW (Is comic book dick NSFW?) is below and like Batman, Batdick is moody as hell and lurks in the shadows.

My thanks to writers Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo who decided that Batman’s cut dick was relevant to the plot development of this narrative. Thank you for your hard work.

So, after this  maybe there’s some Superpeen on the horizon? Oh god I hope so! I hope this means they keep Henry Cavill as Superman. 

Now Clark, it’s your turn. Let’s see what you’re packing, homeboy…

On Brand

He’s more tongue than man, now.

Venom, the upcoming movie about a monstrous symbiote bonding with a man with an impossible accent, really does seem to be nailing the vibe of the over-the-top, goth nightmare/dream of the 1980s and ‘90s.

Like, for instance, this new poster, which is just so very Venom it hurts a little.

The poster, as shared by Bloody Disgusting, is a promo for the IMAX showing of the film, which promise all the excitement of amorphous alien goo biology in all the screen real estate that you could possibly want. And also probably a bit more.

But, seriously, look at that art. The tongue alone is worthy of an entire post.

It just feels very classic Venom to me, fleshy and energetic and as creepy as it is something I could totally see myself putting on my trapper keeper when I was younger.

Whoever’s making the Venom posters seems to have it down.

Iconic 80s Duet

The word icon is overused, but few would disagree that this petite pop princess (aka GODDESS Kylie Minogue) has earned true iconic status!

More than thirty years since I Should Be So Lucky and Never Gonna Give You Up catapulted to the top of the charts, here’s Kylie joined by Rick Astley at Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park .

A match made in 80’s Pop heaven!

3D Art From Sneakers

While sneaker deconstruction may be a fetish phenomenon for some, British artist FILFURY has transformed the act into a highly conceptual art form.

Trading in the canvas for sneaker parts (among other objects), the artist, née Phil Robson, translates his love of hip-hop, UK music subcultures, sportswear and, of course, sneakers into tactile sculptural pieces.

From skulls and insects to weaponry and birds, Robson’s acute attention to detail and wildly imaginative concepts have lead to a slew of collaborations with high-profile brands like Nike, Jordan Brand, Philipp Plein, Reebok, adidas, Casio, Corona and counting.

Needless to say, these are truly marvellous works of art.

This is one talented guy.
