An Eggstraordinary Pop Culture Compilation for Easter




Enjoy this special animated Easter video that turns the main characters of popular cult TV favorites such as Game Of Thrones, Star Trek, Breaking Bad and The Big Bang Theory into, you guessed it, eggs. Created by Easy Explain Video, a company that creates animated videos for companies and agencies.



I took it upon myself to create little individual images for each show by compositing multiple screen grabs from the video. Feel free to share them with your friends as Easter cards:

Game of Thrones - Game of Eggs:


Star Trek - Star Tregg:


The X-Files - The Egg Files:


Breaking Bad - Breaking Egg


Homeland - Eggland:


The Walking Dead - The Walking Egg:

24 - 24:

Hats Off To Thom Browne and Stephen Jones For Some Seriously Strange Headwear.





Thom Browne's menswear collection for Fall Winter 2014 is both sartorial and satirical, to say the least. Ragged edge plaids, giant fat silhouette suits and autumnal leaf camo face make-up are topped off, literally, by unusual grey flannel and plaid hats and headgear in the shapes of animals. Rabbits as top hats, masks, caps and eyepatches, elephant heads, badger and frog caps, pinstripe bowlers as bears, hunting caps with antlers, driving caps with eyes and cage-like construction. There's even a Bear with a salmon in its mouth as a hat. Designed by Browne, the hats were made with the help of well-known milliner Stephen Jones.

I do not believe the hats are available for purchase, but instead were designed to accompany the collection on the runway. No words can do these imaginative animal hats justice, you just have to see them.

So here they are:






























The rest of the collection is absolutely wild, here's just a peek:
