Yeah this is pretty much in the wheelhouse.
Mike Brodie says that he never really wanted to be an artist. But he’s travelled over fifty thousand miles by train, lived with an underground rock band in Philadelphia and with vegans in Portland, and photographed it all. His images—of trains with the earth flying by, of a tender sleeping embrace—are touching and terrifying, exciting and raw. This work will be released as Brodie’s first book, “A Period of Juvenile Prosperity,” by Twin Palms Publishers and TBW Books, on March 1st. He will also have two concurrent exhibits in March, one at Yossi Milo Gallery, in New York, and one at M + B, in Los Angeles, and book signings on March 8th, at Dashwood Books in New York, and March 17th, at Family Books in Los Angeles.

A rodent-eating snake and a hamster have developed an unusual bond at a zoo in Tokyo, Japan. Their relationship began when zookeepers presented the hamster to the snake as a meal.
However, the rat snake (named Aochan) refused to eat the rodent. The two now share a cage, and the hamster sometimes falls asleep sitting on top of his natural foe. Zookeepers have since named the hamster ‘Gohan’ – the Japanese word for meal.
…oh my actual God what?
(See, in my head this has in fact kind of happened.)
This ends poorly.

If I had known I could be a LEGO Professional builder…seriously. That’s a thing?
