LOL of the Day: Guy Plays Music to the Exact Tune of Angry Grandpa Yelling and Destroying PS4

angrygrandpaps4-mononeon

After I shared this EPIC VIDEO, a member of our Facebook group Pedro Piccinini (thank you sir!) pointed me to this glorious Instagram account: @theMonoNeon. Dywane MonoNeon Thomas Jr. plays music to the exact tune of random internet videos, everything from stand up comedy sets to scenes from famous films. People like this are what I love most about the Internet.

To really get a sense for what I’m talking about watch this video of an angry grandpa destroying a PS4 accompanied by music from MonoNeon below.

sea/see/saw is a kinetic sculpture by Caitlind R.C. Brown and Wayne Garrett, constructed from 14,000 used eyeglass lenses. The piece was installed on the Pera Museum in Istanbul, and designed to mimmick a shimmering surface. The lenses were all donated by Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre (CLERC) which helps visually impaired people around the world. These were lenses they were unable to recycle. To donate glasses in Canada, head over here.

Unconventional Sandcastles by Matt Kaliner

Kaliner3

Harvard University lecturer, Matt Kaliner, combines his talent for building unconventional sandcastles with his research background in the sociology of art. However, while fascinated by the different ways people respond to his work depending on where they’re built, Kaliner admits to not having “worked up anything particularly deep about sandcastles” and ultimately being drawn to do what he does by “the sheer joy of playing on the beach.”

Whether or not you can read anything deeper in them, these sand castles are stunning to look at. See more of Kaliner’s amazing creations below!
