Government Offices In Different Cities

Around The World: Government Officials & Their Desks

When I think of bureaucracy, I think of outdated rigid rules, tons of paperwork, and tight budgets. I have compassion for people who can work as civil servants and remain inspired enough to make it all happen in their respective cities. Every time I go into a government office here in Atlanta, I’m itching to get out from the moment I walk in the door. Did you know you can tell a lot about a city or country by what their government offices look like? ...

Interesting Look At Nintendo Company

Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About The Nintendo Company

I’m sure you know by now that we love Nintendo on Bit Rebels. We write about it a lot, and we’ve covered everything from the original NES all the way up to the Wii. I still remember the first time I discovered Mario. I was just a kid, and of course, at that moment I was convinced I had to get the Mario lunchbox, the Mario sneakers and the Mario t-shirt. Playing videos games back then was considered mostly an activity for boys, not girls. ...

Unique Faces On Potatoes

Potato Portraits: The Real Life Potato Heads

A potato is a versatile little veggie, isn’t it? Not only can we cook it about a million different ways, it can also be used as an artist’s canvas. Next time you are sitting home bored on a Saturday night, just grab a potato from the kitchen, and you’ll be guaranteed hours of fun. Ok, maybe not, but that doesn’t take away from these fabulous real life potato heads. Ginou Choueiri, a visual artist living in Beirut, Lebanon, must really like potatoes because she’s created ...

Tiny Planet Photography: A Creative Way To View A Panorama

Panoramas are just plain cool, and this tiny planet photography takes it to a whole new level. A panorama is a wide-angle view of a space, and it’s usually found in the form of a painting or photograph. Creative artists frequently use a panoramic view to illustrate landscapes and historical events. For example, these Evolution of Man illustrations and Last Supper Parodies are both presented in panoramic views. Robert Piontek, a photographer from Germany, found a way to put a creative spin on the classic ...

Dramatic Silent View Photography

Creative Photography: Dramatic Effects Of Red & Black

Earlier this month, I wrote an article called The Beauty Of Selective Color Photography. It highlighted the photography technique which involves converting a photo to black and white, but leaving some parts of it in color. It’s truly a stunning effect. In addition to using the contrast of certain colors to add a layer of creativity and complexity to a photograph, it can also be used to add drama and display emotions. An example of this can be seen in the photography below by Silent-View. ...

Supreme Cover of Smooth Criminal

This Smooth Criminal Cover Will Mess With Your Head

Growing up I listened to my share of Michael Jackson (bless his soul) songs and became mesmerized by the lyrics just like everyone else. His songs have evolved into different meanings for pretty much everyone that has listened to them from the time they were kids all they way up until they are adults. Ever since Michael died (and of course before as well) there has been a landslide of covers springing up on the Internet, and most don’t even come close to the originals. ...

Depixelizing 8-Bit Game Artwork Algorithm

8-Bit Characters Depixelized: Awesome Futurfication Software

I sometimes get really bummed out that the 8-bit era has ended, and the original artwork created in the ’80s is forever over. Sure, we can create pixalated art pieces today, but that doesn’t really make it the same, does it? No, it’s the memories connected to the artwork that make it retro and cool. No matter how much we want more of the pixelated graphics, there was only so much created in the era of the Nintendo NES. But the future has some pretty ...

Twitter Facts And Figures: The True History [Infographic]

Alright, so here you are thinking, “What could there possibly be more that I could learn about Twitter?” Well, there is quite a lot actually! Twitter’s history is full of milestones and valleys that would make a huge difference to your online life if it never would have become reality. There are of course countless infographics out there that present the full statistics or the full story of Twitter and everyone has their point. The cold hard facts usually never get put on a piece ...

Sugar Is Not Healthy

14 Not So Sweet Facts About Sugar

There has been a lot of controversy about sugar over the past few decades. Among other things, we’ve heard that eating too much sugar causes diabetes. Then we were told that it doesn’t cause diabetes, but it causes obesity, which is linked to diabetes. There are those affected that need a continuous glucose meter. We’ve also been told that eating too much sugar is linked to insomnia, allergies and even our metabolism. I could go on and on about the side effects of sugar. My ...

USS Enterprise Star Trek Door

Make A Functional Star Trek Door For Your Home

I love Star Trek doors. You don’t have to be a Trekkie to know which doors I’m talking about. I was trying to figure out today what it is about those doors that makes them so cool. I think a big aspect of it is the way they sound. That woooooooosh sound when it opens is so geeky, and it always puts a big smile on my face. Wouldn’t it be a geek’s dream come true to have a Star Trek door installed in our ...

Technology Can Be Stressful

Study Reveals Technology Makes Us Stressed Out

I remember several months ago when I wrote an article about a study that showed Americans go crazy when their Internet is slow. At the time I wrote that, I wondered if that was a good representation for people around the world, or if it was just another example of how us Americans can be impatient and intolerant at times when it comes to technology. Today that question is answered. A poll of 3,000 adults conducted by Stinky Ink in the UK reveals that British ...

Snowflakes Photographed Up Close

Wow! Snowflakes Under A Microscope

I’ve always been inspired by snowflakes. To me, they are like little specks of magic when they fall from the sky. Since it doesn’t snow much in Atlanta, I don’t get to see snowflakes very often. I remember in January I wrote 5 Lessons A Snowflake Can Teach Us About Blogging on a day when it snowed here. Now that winter is long gone and most of us aren’t thinking about snow at all, I have something really special to share with you. AK Donovan ...

Boxers Before And After Fight

Boxers: Before & After The Fight

I have never been much of a boxing fan, but when Mike Tyson was active, I would watch the fights just to see how fast he would knock the poor guy out. He always amazed people in his glorious days, and I am sure many would consider him to be the best boxer that ever walked the planet. Sure, many would say Muhammad Ali is the best one, but as we have stated so many times before, everyone is of course entitled to their own ...

Denis Zilber Fun Caricatures

10 Creative Caricatures That Each Tell A Story

I’ve always been fascinated by artists that can create caricatures. We all know that a caricature is a portrait that distorts or exaggerates the essence of the person being drawn. The artist somehow has to choose which feature to distort and change, yet keep the likeness similar enough so that the person is recognizable. On top of all that, there is usually an element of humor. It’s next level drawing requiring lots of special talent and skills for sure. Caricatures can be traced back as ...
