Her finely detailed charcoal and pencil drawings have made their rounds in Internetland, so you’ve probably seen her work at some point. They’re strange and beautiful and often haunting.
Check out Lipton’s website here for more of her work.

- Florida is some Bizarro vortex, crazy random shit happens every day there. This asshole beat up a child over an argument about hard-boiled eggs. David Belson slammed the girl’s head against the wall, harmed his wife who tried to save her, and is now thankfully in jail. Domestic disputes get pretty ugly in Florida. This guy dumped a cup of tea on his wife’s head.
- Florida isn’t the only place doing some harm with hot beverages. A 61-year-old woman in Japan killed her cheating husband with a cup of coffee!
- Meanwhile in Florida, again, a man is arrested and found with a crack pipe inside his stomach. Ouch!
- That’s nothing though, Anal Mishaps: US Woman Stuck $5000 Cash in Butt, Filipino Jobert Sucaldito Recovering from Cucumber in Rectum.
- A Colombian woman was caught trying to smuggle cocaine in a fake pregnant belly. This was a new one for Colombian police but obviously it didn’t work.
- An artist has created an “edible opera” using biotechnology which uses a cool facehugger-looking helmet that creates edible algae from carbon dioxide which feeds the algae. “The singer has trained herself specially for this project so that she can further enhance her lung capacity to produce the best quality algae possible. The slightest changes in pitch and frequency can apparently determine the algae’s color, texture and even whether it will be sweet or bitter.”
- The blobfish has officially been named the world’s ugliest animal. I totally disagree. They’re cute and endangered too. Poor blobfish!
- In beauty news, a guy named Herbert Chavez dropped £4,400 on 13 surgeries to make him look like Superman. He now looks like an android which is pretty cool.

The zombie comic started as a tongue-in-cheek campaign, but has evolved into a popular way to impress young people with the importance of emergency preparedness, he explains on the CDC web site.” You can read the CDC zombie pandemic graphic novel here.
- Talk about awesome finds! This German kid found a human mummy in a sarcophagus in a corner of his grandparents’ attic!
- 16 human skulls found near a school in Prague. The skulls were said to be from a “private collection.” Ok I want a collection of human skulls. Obtained legally of course.

He is said to be wearing a gas mask, boiler suit, and cloak. “While he does not seem to be obviously aggressive or dangerous, police are hoping to speak to Le Loyon in an effort to encourage him to be less threatening.”
- Joker-obsessed fan stabs a man at the gym and tries to carve a Joker smile on his face when he’s arrested. He also posted “Why so serious?” on Facebook right after the incident.

Fuck zombies, skeletons are fucking awesome. Did you know there’s a skeleton inside you right now?
That’s a lot of bones. Here’s more!
What can I say? I just have a soft spot for skeletons.
Ok, that’s more corpsey but you can start to see the skeleton. It’s the thought that counts.
Here are 6 cool skeleton facts:
1. A new-born baby has over 300 bones, over time some of these will fuse together. There are 206 bones in the average adult skeleton.
2. An adult skeleton accounts for around 14% of the body’s total weight. Experiments have shown that prolonged periods in weightless space will cause bones to lose weight and thickness.
3. Giraffes have seven neck bones, exactly the same number as humans.
4. Ounce for ounce, bone is stronger than steel and reinforced concrete. However doctors throughout the world treat tens of million of fractures a year.
5. One out of 20 people have an extra rib.
6. The hip bone or pelvis is six bones joined together. It is shaped like a bowl.
So as I was looking for creepy skeleton-related videos to post, I found this video of a guy putting a skeleton in a blender. Looks like a good Bizarro cooking course.
I know I’ve posted this song before but it’s so incredible that it had to be posted again and this is a Horrormas-sounding remix:
3 days until Halloween!

Einstürzende Neubauten made the soundtrack for this animation and pretty much made the soundtrack to my life.
If you like this video, definitely check out, We Are The Strange, a full-length animation with a similar style and some seriously trippy anime/80’s video game vibes thrown in.
