One Ring To Bind Them: Lord Of The Wedding Rings Fancy Dress Ceremony Is Fantastical

A groom ditched his shoes and tie as he transformed into the hobbit, Frodo Baggins, for his Lord of the Rings wedding day. Will Grant, 28, who’s a big fan of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy novel, convinced his wife-to-be, Amy Gander, 33, to turn their garden in Woolacombe, North Devon into Middle Earth for their big day. They rowed to a pond where a man dressed as Gandalf took their vows and a well-trained eagle delivered the wedding rings.

寝ていると鳥たちがあつまる宿り木としての猫

no title


 自然界では基本的には弱肉強食となるが、人間の飼育下においては餌と愛情がたっぷりと用意されているので、また違った生態系が育まれるようだ。

 トルコ、ゾングルタクにあるご家庭では猫と鳥を飼っている。猫は鳥を襲うことはないし、鳥も猫に対して全く恐怖心を抱いていない。

 だから猫がお昼寝をしていると宿り木のごとく鳥たちが集まってくるのだ。 続きを読む

椅子が人を襲うだと?B級ホラー映画「キラー・ソファ」予告編(怖いソファ注意)

so1_e

 チープだったり味がありすぎだったりとメジャーなホラー映画にはない魅力満載のB級ホラー映画。中にはマジでトラウマ級にホラーなものもあったりする、愛好家も多いジャンルである。

 その特徴のひとつに呪いの人形やゾンビ、幽霊だけでなくムカデや植物などがバラエティー豊かに襲ってきがちなことがあげられるが、ついにリクライニングチェアまでが殺人鬼と化してしまったようだ。

 リクライニングチェアが一体、どうやって殺人を・・・?というミステリアスな雰囲気を残しつつ、「キラー・ソファ(KILLER SOFA)」が間もなく公開である。 続きを読む
