These Are Painted Wood Sculptures. No Fabric Is Involved…

Nov 25, 2014 By Abraham 0

The incredible work of sculptor Tom Eckert is made entirely of wood which he then paints. And yet, even knowing this, it is nearly impossible to see anything other than actual fabric in these pieces. He explains

One of my earliest recollections, on a car trip, was my perception of the wet, slick highway ahead that turned out to be an illusion, a mirage.  The revelation that I was fooled, visually and intellectually tricked, stuck with me.  This visual deception is now the basis for my creative direction.

When this idea is applied to my compositions (floating book, floating cards, floating rock) a sense of the impossible happens — for me, magic.

Magic, indeed.

NFL Star Gives Up Millions to Be…a Farmer. And That’s Not the Most Incredible Part.

Nov 25, 2014 By Joey White 0

At 29 years old, Jason Brown was at the top of his game. The star center for the St. Louis Rams was called “the cornerstone of our line” by his head coach. Then suddenly, after playing three years of a five-year $37 million contract, the North Carolina native walked away from the game…

…to farm.

Brown had never farmed in his life, so he watched YouTube videos to figure out how to manage his new 1,000-acre property in rural North Carolina.

Leaping 3-fingered Touchdown Catch May Be the Greatest Completion of All Time

Nov 24, 2014 By Abraham 3

Yesterday, New York Giant Odell Beckham, Jr. made a catch that will be featured in highlight reels for decades to come.

It’s already unlikely that a pass thrown from midfield will result in a touchdown. Add to that a defender’s interference and the fact that this pass was thrown several feet over Beckham’s head and this seems like an impossible catch.

But he was able to leap and get a couple fingers on it…and that was all he needed.

Immediately, the announcers began hailing it as a catch that will go down in history…

Nov 23, 2014 By Abraham 2

Australian designer and gamer Jerome Wilson was playing Call of Duty a while back and not having a very good game. He was about to quit when he heard another player start singing. The other player, apparently unaware that his mic was on, sang the entirety of Coldplay’s song “Fix You.”

Wilson continued to play enjoying the “odd beauty of the moment” and then perfected it by adding the song’s instrumentation and posting it for us to see, too…
