Now i have to say when i saw the title before the picture i thought it was going to use one bowling pin as a lamp but surprised i was when i saw that no not one bowling pin had been used but in fact all ten. This lamp modified by Etsy seller RenegadeVintage was originally a bowling arcade game. Those aren’t pins but markers that fold back when hit by balls. Now the assembly is a lamp that provides ambient light perfect for a romantic love nest.

Daddy does hair!

Now this is how you do your daughters hair! Dad’s of the world take note its not just mother who can do the hair in the house. All you need is a vacuum cleaner and a hair band.  Stick the hair band on the end, suck up all your daughters hair, pop the band off and job done.

“Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song, Google-Translated

Now we all know the theme song from The fresh prince but i bet you haven’t heard it like this…

From the youtube page:

In the geekiest experiment ever, CDZA co-founder Joe Sabia shows us what happens when we translate the lyrics of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air through every language in Google Translate (64 times), and then taking what remains and translating it BACK into English.

Featuring Jeremie Harris as Will Smith.

Technically speaking, all but the first verse were translated. The lyrics were translated from English to the world’s most spoken language (Mandarin), to the second most (Spanish), to the third most, to the fourth most, ETC, putting all 64 languages in order by finding the demographic population size on every language on Wikipedia. 

Fun facts: 
The last translation we put it through was “Esperanto”, because apparently, only 10,000 people speak it.
No one has an official language of “Latin”, but we had to assume a lot of people are still able to speak it. So that was a bit ambiguous. 
Proper Nouns never really changed. Neither did numbers, as you can tell in the last stanza, “7,8”.
We have no idea why we did this.

This lastest work created for a Birmingham gallery space was created using sheets of A4 paper folded into pyramids onto which he projected light resulting in an interesting organic effect. No video unfortunately, but you can learn more about his work here.
