Rather than beautify them, PhotoShop is used to great effect here to ruff up some celebrity actors. I find this selection originate from respectable talent, so now we just need to see some talentless celebs receive the same treatment.

With Dubai set to unveil the tallest building in the world, surpassing the current icon, the Taipei 101, I’m far more interested in French photographer Cédric Delsaux’s rendition of Star Wars in the Arab state.

Photographer James Griffioen left a comfy life as a securities lawyer in San Francisco to take pictures and raise his family in Detroit – what many consider the most dangerous city in America thanks to a staggering rate of 1,220 violent crimes committed per 100,000 people.
Griffioen has since spent his days walking the streets of his disintegrating hometown photographing the houses that others have long left behind. In the absence of their owners, architectural structures are slowly taken over by green matter. He calls the series of photographs Feral Houses; feral meaning “reversion to a wild state” and belonging to the dead.

I can’t help but stare at these huge monster cows! Apparently, they originate in 19th century Belgium by crossing local cattle with British cattle.
The Belgian Blue cattle are gigantic bovine wonders. Their enormous size and muscle mass, sometimes called “double muscling,” is a naturally occurring mutation of the gene for myostatin, a protein that regulates muscle growth. This mutation results in accelerated lean muscle growth.
For show, they’re often shaved to show off their muscle growth.
See this video below for a little insight into their “development”. Watch as they collect the semen from one bull for artificial insemination (not kidding!)

This must be the most impressive Star Wars fan collection I’ve ever seen! The memorabilia belongs to Cho Woong who has presented his collection in a super-stylish way. Check out the blue lighting and understated living room!

Wow – what is there not to love about carnival? I think London’s Notting Hill Carnival – the only one I’ve been to – shames in comparison to efforts from places like Sao Paulo, Brazil!
