There’s nothing quite like hearing the tune of one of your favorite cartoon shows to send a jolt of nostalgia right through your body. But anyone can line up a playlist of a bunch of cartoon themes, so DeStorm wanted to do something a bit different. He’s used the power of multiple voice tracks to record a series of videos called “Soul Tunes” where he uses he R&B song stylings to cover the themes of many classic show themes. The first video below has Tailspin, Chip and Dale, Pinky and the Brain and more. I’ve posted two more videos after the jump with even more tracks. Did he get your favorite?
There are millions of fire hydrants all over the world, but for some reason they are painted red every single time. I get the whole “everyone needs to be aware there is a fire hydrant there so lets paint it red” theory, but come on spice it up a little bit. That is why I have gone around my town and painted every fire hydrant as a penis, there is now 50, 3 foot tall penis hydrants scattered throughout my town, I rule. On a little more creative note, here is a bunch of fire hydrant art found around the country.

If you were one of the many souls whose minds immediately leapt to thoughts of a resurrected Firebird when GM first introduced the Chevrolet Camaro Concept way back in 2006, you’re probably a bit bitter about the fact GM kicked Pontiac to the curb before that dream every came to life. Fortunately, Classic Design Concepts stepped in to fill the void in a big way. The Firebreather takes some of the more iconic elements of the Firebird’s history and melds them with the already muscular lines of Chevrolet’s pony bruiser. In addition to the creative body work, the car packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that manages to dump 599 horsepower onto the rear tires and the Classic Design Concepts team also took the time to work over the interior with a few Firebird-like design elements. If you really want one you are in luck, they are producing just 50 of them for only $60,000 which isn’t that bad when you think of the limited quantity of the car. Since we know you are made of money go to the site found here to go buy one.

Who would have known that one can use newspapers to create art? The inventive artist Nick Georgiou from Queens, NY, is folding different newspapers to create sculptures and other installations. The sculptures are usually placed in public so you may have seen them around in New York City, but some of his pieces are also for indoor exhibition like the ones he has framed in to look like paintings.
The artist himself loves to transform printed words into something else because he thinks it’s a way of giving new life to newspapers, as well as books.
