The Russian Avant-Garde artist, Kazimir Malevich, whose paintings are worth a fortune, initially got rejected by the art academy, twice.

Just when you think Google can't innovate "search" any more, they go and do this: hands-free, no typing awesomeness. Simply say "Ok Google" and then ask your question. Only in Chrome. Obviously.
And the winner of the very recently created WTF? Did I Just Watch Award is... (drum roll)... Vaginal Knitting. Yes. You read that correctly, folks. Vaginal Knitting. I shit you not. Right now, in Darwin, Australia Casey Jenkins is sitting in a gallery, knitting what looks like a very long, and probably very smelly scarf, out of wool she inserted inside herself.

Volkswagen Golf GTI and Underworld (remember them?) have collaborated on a project that reads a drivers’ unique driving movements, speed and location. Every steer and acceleration is calculated from a combination of the accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS receiver, and translated, real-time, into personalized music. Pretty awesome. Just wish it was commercially available.

Brilliant spoof. My hat off gentlemen. Oh, and if you haven't seen the original monstrosity that is Kanye's and Kim Kardashian's weird-ass video for Bound 2, you won't find it here. I'm not passing that shit around. Fuck that. The Internet's for awesome things not that crap.

Amidst the waters of the Arctic Ocean on the island of Spitsbergen, Norway lies the northernmost skate ramp in the world. And Element skateboarder, Karsten Kleppan, just skated it. What an amazing place. Have to go one day.

Ironlak Paint needs to sell their spray paint. So they did the smart thing and gave unlimited amounts of it to graffiti artists, sent them to an abandoned warehouse to wreak creative havoc and shot a music video.

A billboard in Piccadilly Circus, London that can sense whenever a BA flight flies over it and triggers a video pertaining to said flight. Clever.
Like this or not, I'm just happy there's another 21 Jump Street movie. Even though it's apparently called 22 Jump Street. Idiots.
