    These 12-inch steel blades are fully automatic: they can deploy or retract with the push of a button.
    "The first ever fully automatic wolverine claws that deploy AND retact automaticlly. These beautiful 12-inch stainless steel claws fire out at the touch of a button and bring me as close as anyone has to feeling like they have adamantium claws. I think these are best on the net so hope you like em." Cool!

    This is a joke! Re Made does not exist. It's an elaborate lampoon of Best Made, a company that makes ridiculously expensive tools, most famously axes. Re Made's website, you may notice, is almost a clone of Best Made's.
    Prof. Rebekah Mondrak of the University of Michigan created this satire. In an interview, she explained how her project explores a popular desire for authenticity--one that, it turns out, is often fake:
    I was introduced to Best Made Co. (BMC) by The New York Times in their puzzling 2010 article about founder Peter Buchanan-Smith and his urban axe. The gist of the story was that BMC purchases the axes from another company, and then sands, brands, paints, and resells them for between $162 and $350. The Times described the axes as “useful, manly objects.” They also noted that celebrity executives were purchasing them, and that art galleries had been exhibiting them. So they gave a wide berth for these axes to exist in this incredibly free-floating space — luxury item, useful tool, sophisticated design, New York City-styled, outdoorsy, artisanal movement, art object — without noting any of the contradictions in these terms.
    Here we were, just coming out of what they’re now calling the Great Recession, and the Times features an article about a tool symbolizing work, real work. Manual labor. For sale in the Prada “gallery” for $350. And all the symbolic properties of this tool are not lost on Best Made – they’re selling the mythical blue-collar working man identity with every axe. Yet there’s not one word in the article about how bizarre this is… Unintentionally, the article reads like parody...

    North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un will soon star in his very own video game.  The Atlanta-based studio Money Horse Games is designing the game for PCs and mobile devices.  According to published reports, players will play as Kim Jong Un, ride a unicorn through a forest and attack U.S. paratroopers. Moneyhorse CEO Jeff Miller says he was motivated to create the game because he is fascinated with North Korea. He says that he wants to raise people's awareness about the secretive nation.

    Tattooed Porcelain Figures by artist Jessica Harrison. More pics after more.
    "Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle. Working with this moving space between artist/maker and viewer, she draws on the active body in both making and interpreting sculpture to unravel imaginative touch and proprioceptive sensation in sculptural practice. In this way, Harrison re-describes the body in sculpture through the skin, offering an alternative way of thinking about the body beyond a binary tradition of inside and outside."

    What the human body looks like at 100 years old

    What the human body looks like at 100 years old
    Pic   /   Comments
    Photographer Anastasia Pottinger has a powerful photo series called Centenarians that reveals what the human body looks like at 100 years old.  Pottinger writes:
    When I later reviewed the images on my computer, I knew I was looking at something very special. It was when I began exhibiting the work that the idea to continue the series was born. The response to the images has been remarkable. Viewers are visibly moved by what they are looking at. Whether it's wondering, "is this what I'm going to look like?" or remembering a loved one – the response seems to be universally emotional on some level.

    The Impossible Anatomy of Godzilla
    Pic   /   Comments
    "Since his first awakening, the radioactive, fire-spewing kaiju has grown 200 feet and put on more than 150,000 tons. Godzilla is now 30 stories tall and weighs as much as a cruise ship. No actual animal could take the pressure of being so massive: It would overheat, its organs would implode, and it would need to mainline butter to get enough calories. For fun, we surveyed scientists to help us break down the beast's biology. If Godzilla were real, he would be an incredible specimen. "  (Photo by Stephanie Godot/Illustration by Andrew Rae)
