This Artist Photoshops Old Paperback Books With Ridiculous Titles

Even though the internet is primarily focused on knowledge, connecting people, and providing services, a very nice and, to be honest, necessary function of the internet is to give people things to laugh about.

In the sea of comedy that anyone can find on the various social media, there’s also Paperback Paradise, a page dedicated to photoshopping vintage paperback book covers with funny, weird, and absurd titles, subtitles and marketing blurbs that were oh so popular on books back in the day; and Domi, the artist behind the self proclaimed “world’s #1 used book store”.

More: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Shop h/t: boredpanda

The idea was inspired by a photoshop contest of a book that Domi was a part of:

“I saw a photoshop contest for a Choose Your Own Adventure cover on a forum I semi-frequented in the early aughts and thought ‘I could probably do that.’ I didn’t try it until years later with this account, but have had a lot of fun doing it.”

He continued: “I probably honed the practice working in a comic book shop years ago. That’s how we would pass the time—you’d pick up a back issue and point to The Flash getting his ass kicked and go ‘look at this mother f!@#$% right here’ and start doing an impression of them in their predicament with a slight twist to make it more fun.”

Domi is a book collector who frequents thrift stores for much of his content that you see here. We asked Domi about the process of making a Paperback Paradise book a reality:

“I go to the thrift store and browse the paperbacks until something catches my eye. There are no hard criteria I follow other than it needs to be an illustrated cover, but typically one depicting a moment of great drama or action is what works.”

“Science fiction and fantasy are perfect for that. There is a real honesty in older book covers as the artists were trying to sell an entire book at a glance which makes them perfect for reappropriation. I usually know my title within a few seconds of looking at a good one, but if I just like the cover I’ll buy it and hold onto those until I can think of something later.”

“My process is pretty spontaneous,” elaborates Domi. “I never have anything pre-planned except for the back covers, which I’ll know two or three ideas that will make it there once I’ve got an idea for the cover. First ideas are typically the best ones.”

Lastly, Bored Panda asked Domi about some of his favorites among the heaps of covers he has done. He had this to say:

“I’m usually pretty high on my latest ideas, but some of my favorites are Here They Come: The Bats That Kicked My Ass, Come Be My Friend, Skeletons F!@#$% Up My Naked Husband, Crabitalism… I love fantasy and magic, so something like skeletons coming to life and beating a naked dude’s ass is very fun for me to think about.”

“I really like the few VHS tapes I’ve done as well—I Don’t Want a Little Brother, Dad!, God’s Punishment, and my most recent post Meet Your New Friend Forever, which was a video collaboration with my friend @LastKnownFootage.“

“Waste Management Confidential”: The Superb Vintage Inspired Artworks of Paco Pomet

A selection of work by artist Paco Pomet from Granada, Spain. Highly iconoclastic, Pomet’s work descends from a tradition in Western art building from the irruption of photography where credibility becomes a starting point for distortion and crises of representation. In this way, Pomet often uses photography to establish a sense of realism that is later dismantled by the introduction of a discordant element to the scene.

“The monochrome effect operates as a restatement of the alleged documentary character of the images I use. However, as soon as we are drawn into the scene the twist mechanism overcomes. What we assume to be real it is not. When I introduce the elements of discordance I am somehow pointing to the linguistical crisis that defines the western culture. The appropriation of History and the distorting elements becomes a critical practice that addresses our time, stigmatized by the nihilism and the discredit. Among the most characteristic distorting elements within my work highlight hyperbole, personification, metaphor, distortion of scale, decontextualization, absurdity and grotesque,” he explains.

Amazing Vintage Photographs of Linemen on Utility Poles at the Turn of 20th Century

Most people don’t think much about the wooden utility poles in their neighborhood. However, they rely on them each day—utility poles support overhead power lines, cable services, streetlights, and other public services in the area. As it happens, these important structures were created by mistake.

h/t: vintag.es

In 1843, the United States Congress gave Samuel Morse $30,000 for a demonstration project to prove he could send messages over a distance more quickly and efficiently than the means available at the time. Morse and his partners began laying underground telegraph wires between the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., and a railroad station in Baltimore, a distance of forty miles.

Unfortunately, the wires were defective, and Morse and his partners were running out of time and money. One of Morse’s partners suggested that the quickest way to complete the project would be to string telegraph wires overhead on trees and wooden poles.

On May 24, 1844, thanks to telegraph wires hastily strung on hundreds of wooden utility poles, the phrase “What Hath God Wrought” was successfully telegraphed via Morse code from D.C. to Baltimore and back.

Although the first wooden utility poles were the result of a mistake, they caught on quickly; aside from the Plains, the United States is richly forested, and the raw material for wooden utility poles was readily available. Soon there were thousands of wooden utility poles carrying telegraph signals around the eastern and the western portions of the United States, although the eastern and western networks were not yet connected.

By the early 20th century, these poles were used for telephone and electrical lines in addition to telegraph lines. Today, from wireless voice communications to the internet, they carry much more.

人間にも特殊能力が使えるかも!コウモリやイルカの超音波能力を利用できるオーディオデバイスを開発

人間も超音波能力を得ることができるデバイスを開発

 動物は人間より優れた能力を持っている。犬の嗅覚はすごいし、シャコは人間に見えない色を見ることができ。キツネや渡り鳥、クジラやカメなど一部の動物は、地球の磁場を感じることができる。

 だが我々には知恵がある。それをつかって、コウモリやイルカが持つ「エコーロケーション(反響定位)」を利用することが可能になるかもしれない。

 そう、音波を発し、その反響によって物体の距離・方向・大きさなどを測る天然のレーダーを使えるかもしれないのだ。 続きを読む
