!! OMG, That 70’s Big Brother?: Underground home built during the Cold War is for sale! !!

Paranoia will destroy ya, but it will almost make you build some major underground glamour! Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson, a wealthy businessman, built this underground family home in Las Vegas in 1978 to withstand a nuclear blast. Apparently, Henderson was convinced that things with the Soviets weren’t going to end well in the Cold War, equipping the house to allow it to be lived in for up to a year without resurfacing.
You enter the house via an elevator camouflaged by clusters of rocks, and won’t miss the outside world at all because according to Messyness Chic:

The “garden” includes a four-hole putting green, a swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, dance floor, bar, BBQ (camouflaged in a rock) and adjustable light settings for “sunset,” “day,” “dusk” and “night”. The night setting comes complete with twinkling stars.

The house was lost to foreclosure last summer so you can pick it up today for a cool $1.7 million. Check out more photos after the jump.

!! OMG, “the Roman Empire didn’t collapse, it took off into outer space”: Alex Taylor’s ‘Spaceship’ !!

Launched by UK film talent nurturing project Collabor8te Alex Taylor’s Spaceship centers around a fatalistic alien apocalyptic RPG meeting group who contemplate the idea that they themselves are aliens “without spaceships” [to escape].
Thus we follow a female group member who has been told she has energetic connections to angels and relates more to creatures than people; discarding her prescribed female anatomy and gender so she may painfully and publicly ani-morph into her own imaginary creature friend [a personification of everything she wanted to be as a child], a sort of creature couture with a tail and heels to boot.
As Taylor’s docu-style short delves into the protagonist’s fantasized lycanthropy she discusses a void of affection in her younger years which she feels now towards Beanie Baby-style cuddly Alien Trilogychestburster‘ creatures who’s invasive task in life-stage is to grow inside their human host and burst forth through said host’s chest…adorable of course.
Taylor’s tale culminates in an affectionate meeting between our couture creature-come-chainsaw wielding manga maniac humanoid ‘alien’ and a fellow druid-knight in cotton armor as she expresses her hopes for a post-invasion world:

“Afterwards is like a new world, people treat each other as equals and there are no wars as we stop assuming what people are like before we’ve met them, stop judging them and start being loving towards each other”

I hear you sister; me and Molder [not scepto-Scully] and the gender variants, and the D&D geeks, and Sigourney…ish !

!! OMG, RAISING THE ROOF: The New World of Lina Bo Bardi !!

Created by 
Architect Ouida Angelica Biddle
, Artist Nicolau Vergueiro and 
animated by Joao Rosa The New World of Lina Bo Bardi illustrates excerpts from late Italian/Brazilian Architect and Architectural Theorist Lina Bo Bardi’s Bela Criança ahead of a MoMA retrospective, supposedly in the works.
Described by the creators as a “commercial for the brain of Lina Bo Bardi” the video -beginning with a walking double-bum creature that EATS AND SHATS FARTITECTURE- illustrates cross-design-disciplinary Bo Bardi’s personification of Brazilian architecture as a child in need of nurturing and her aversion to cliché, routine and that misogynistic modernism that “[demoralizes] the spirit of new architecture.”

“She was unafraid to be childlike and vulgar, yet also unafraid to lead with boldness in a foreign country. Her work transcends institutional permission and speaks right to a space of fantasy.” __video creators Ouida Angelica Biddle & Nicolau Vergueiro.

!! OMG, death drop dead: ‘Little Boy Serves for your Nerves’ !!

This video is called “Little Boy Serves for your Nerves” when really it should be called “Small Brown Angel Serves to Fray your Nerves” because my nerves are just about in tatters when I watch this.
I keep dying [as my friend Max would say] and I can’t even get through the video; before he does his first death-drop I’ve already death dropped to the floor [in the literal dying sense] and I’m dead…and then I wake up and he’s still twirling and whacking in front of my eyes and so I just figure I’m in heaven because this is what an angel would be looking like.
If I owned the oversized trackpants no-shoes look the way sHe’s owning the oversized trackpants no-shoes look I would wear that look to work, to the club, to church, to weddings, ain’t no place I wouldn’t LOOK GOOD IN THAT GOOD LOOK !
