Bizarre Google Street View Photography may make you reconsider reality.

Take a look outside. Anyone having sex on the cement? Is a tiger running loose? You never know. Canadian artist Jon Rafman has been exploring Google Street View, snapping photos from around our world to remind us that there are some seriously bizarre things going on outside. His photography is both humorous and surreal, a strange collection of screenshots that capture spontaneous oddities happening right outside our window. I love how each shot seems to have an entire novel behind it. Check out a few below, but definitely don’t miss checking out the awesome selection brought to you by Tom over at demilked.

Poster Pairings: Adventure Is Calling

One of my favorite parts of Moonrise Kingdom is when Sam and Suzy ask each other what they want to do when they grow up and they both answer “take adventures”. Can I admit that scene made me smile, like really hard? This poster pairings print by Leah Flores is an ode to that sentiment, a reminder to just get out there and make adventure happen because it’s one of the greatest things life has to offer. For the tune, I’ve called on New Pornographers. You can find out exactly which song below the print.

Poster Pairings: Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names

This edition of poster pairings blends science and hip-hop because we love old-school rhymes and science is incredibly sexy right now. If you haven’t seen the Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names in person, you’re in for a treat as it had me perusing the chart for my favorites and checking out a few artists I’ve never even heard of. As for it’s pairing, there’s a lot we could have gone with but decided to kick it old school with Grandmaster Flash giving us some sage advice (you can find the song below the poster).
