This Artist Creates Eerie Sculptures That Look Like Victorian-Era Ghosts Emerging From Mirrors

Michael Locascio is a New Jersey-based artist and the owner of Dellamorte & Co. – an online store that sells all sorts of eerie and macabre sculptures that draw inspiration from mythical creatures, catacombs, and mysticism. And even though Michael’s store is already incredibly successful with over 39k sales and nothing but positive reviews, one specific sculpture recently caught the attention of Twitter users.

A few days ago, Twitter user Draculasswife shared photos of one of Michael’s sculptures, a Victorian ghost emerging from an antique mirror, and it went viral almost instantly, receiving over 203 K likes. Check it out in the gallery below!

This specific sculpture is 8.5 in (21.6 cm) in size and will set you back $60.

One of his sculptures – a Victorian woman emerging from an antique mirror – recently went viral on Twitter

As for the artist himself, Michael says he studied classical sculpture at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and the Newington Cropsey Foundation, so he’s no newcomer when it comes to sculpting.

People found it both eerie and amazing

“Working with live models, skeletons, and annual cadaver dissections, I trained in anatomy and the bronze monument process there while studying at New York University,” writes the artist in his bio. “Since then I’ve worked as a fine artist in addition to building a prolific career sculpting action figures, toys, and collectible statues.”

And it even glows in the dark!

Michael says the works presented in his store reflect his fascination and appreciation for the macabre, the mythic, and the unusual. “I design, sculpt, cast and patina all the pieces for sale,” explains the artist.

Michael has even more amazing pieces of art for sale on his Etsy store – check some of them out below!

Someone Shares A London Apartment Listing For Over $250K, And People Share What Other Homes You Can Buy For The Same Price

If you’re in the market for a home, you’ve probably seen your fair share of ludicrous listings. Weird interiors, bizarrely planned out spaces, and horrible carpeted bathrooms – you never know what you’ll stumble upon. However, Twitter user Just_RichardB has recently shared a real estate listing for an apartment in London that just might take the cake.

At first glance, it doesn’t seem that bad. Sure, it’s pretty terrible and claustrophobic, but it’s not uncommon to see these types of apartments of up for rent in big cities like London or New York. The thing that makes this listing especially terrible is the asking price – a whopping 200k pounds (~255k USD). People simply couldn’t believe that an apartment the size of a cardboard box could cost that much and quickly pointed out that you can purchase four-bedroom homes in other parts of the country for roughly the same price!

Twitter user Richard Brooks recently shared a crazy £200k apartment listing in London and people couldn’t believe it’s real.

Hilariously Photoshopped House Listing Goes Viral, People On Twitter Start Having Fun ‘Improving’ It

There’s a general knowledge that if you want to sell or rent out a house or an apartment, it has to look presentable. Clean surfaces, cozy interior, nice furniture is more than enough. Unless… unless you want to take it to the next level! Which the people who shared this listing just did. And boy, did they go viral for their efforts (and Photoshop skills).

“Losing my [damn] mind at these apartment listing photos,” Caitie Delaney, one Twitter user, wrote upon sharing the screenshots of the Los Angeles listing. And we have to agree—they really are mind-boggling. There’s a reason graphic designers exist, you know! Scroll down below to have a good laugh!

“Be the first to live in this amazing cottage,” the listing reads. “Not your typical 1920’s back house, this great home has been totally reimagined and reborn as an amazing modern home, retaining its classic look and feel. The best of both ‘worlds’ can be yours.”

The “best-of-both-worlds” cottage has gained some popularity since being shared on social media. Caitie’s viral Twitter thread amassed more than 50k likes and over 3k retweets. And honestly, it just made our day a little bit better.

In addition to its “classic look and feel,” the house also has an “attractive yard, your ‘own’ patio (interesting how the word ‘own’ has quotes, hm), nearby parks and equestrian areas provide great space for work and play.” And it can be yours for a little bit over 3k/a month. What a bargain!

Soon enough, people on Twitter started upgrading the listing

People Share 29 Statues That Are Better Than The Ones Torn Down By The Protesters

If you’re following the news, you probably heard that protestors took down the statue of Edward Colston, an English merchant who was known for being involved in slave trade, in Bristol. Well, the takedown of this statue actually inspired other protesters to tear down numerous other statues who depicted slave owners and other human rights abusers, like Christopher Columbus and Robert Milligan. However, this doesn’t mean that all monuments are dedicated to terrible people. People on Twitter are sharing photos of monuments dedicated to activists and revolutionaries who fought for peace and equality, and all of us should learn more about them.

Check out the monuments dedicated to heroes all around the world in the gallery below!

30 Random Things Twitter Told Us That We Should Have Learned In School

Your teacher, mom, and virtually any adult with a thoughtful mind would never approve of Twitter as a learning tool. And how would they with this whole infinite source of the not-very-serious side of the internet where memes, jokes, and burns are roaming free?

But people are proving them wrong by sharing incredible facts brought to them by Twitter that should have been put in the textbooks. From realizing the symbol “&” is a ligature for the word “et” to finding out that an 18-inch pizza has more of a good thing than two 12-inch pizzas, these are some of the facts that could have been part of my wisdom bank this whole time.

So scroll down, upvote your faves, and after you’re done with this post, check out our previous list of 30 random facts that will make you feel “today years old.”#1

Look, I am not saying we should believe all that Twitter has to offer. But it turns out, the things we were taught at school are not so innocent either. Some facts we still believe to this day are complete myths, and they had better be laid out bare before you become “today years old” to realize they aren’t true.

You probably would place a pretty high bid on the fact that Columbus discovered America. You’re not the only one. A 2005 survey showed that 85% of Americans believed Columbus discovered the continents and only 2% correctly answered that he couldn’t have discovered America because it was already inhabited by Native Americans.#4

Another fact which turns out to be a myth is the tongue map idea, which suggests that different parts of our tongues identify different kinds of tastes. However, the University of Florida Center for Smell and Taste stated that “the locations of those taste buds aren’t in accordance with the ‘tongue map.’” And even if taste buds are indeed receptive to certain types of tastes, the difference in reality is tiny.

You’ve probably heard how Einstein failed math in school and was not an A student in general. It turns out, the only exam he failed was an entrance test to the Zurich Polytechnic he had to take in French, which he didn’t speak well at the time.#7

People Start Putting Their Christmas Lights Back Up, Take Social Distancing To The Next Level (23 Pics)

Cities all over the world continue to enforce social distance in one way or the other. But while the authorities are trying to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the pandemic and all the problems that have come with it are taking a real toll on people. So, to cheer themselves and their communities up, some of them are putting their Christmas lights back on.

“My youngest son was bored today and said, ‘Can we put Christmas lights on our tree outside to cheer us up?'” Twitter user Mike Griffin wrote. “Great idea, buddy. Lights are on tonight as a sign of hope and the sweet mind of my 10-year-old.” The Griffins and many more families are turning to social media to share photos of their resurrected holiday displays. Driveways, rooftops, and entire backyards have been illuminated, making the quarantine a little bit merrier.

As of today, there have been 228,000 global coronavirus cases, while US cases soared by more than 40% in just 24 hours. The pandemic has been shaking financial markets, upending local economies and resulting in over 900 deaths worldwide. It’s easy to give in to fear in the face of this crisis, full of uncertainty and unpredictability.

People-Decorate-Christmas-Lights-Coronavirus-Quarantine

prairieswan Report

Chuckie 11 hours agoThis post brought tears to my eyes for some reason. With all the bad things happening at a time like these, the humanity just comes out from where its hiding to bring some joy to our lives to give us hope to survive mentally.

However, there is some good news as well. For example, China has reported no new locally transmitted coronavirus cases for the first time since the outbreak, marking a major turning point in the global battle against COVID-19.

In the weeks following the early spread of the virus, its government enacted draconian quarantine measures and travel restrictions affecting hundreds of millions of citizens. In some cities that were hit especially hard, people were unable to leave their apartments for more than a month, while transport was limited or halted altogether. The country really struggled to get where it’s at now. But it did.

Also, researchers from McMaster University and the University of Toronto have isolated the agent within the novel coronavirus, and this should help us to develop better diagnostic tools and, eventually, a vaccine.

A better future is within reach. We just have to work hard to get there. So why not do it under dangling Christmas lights?

Nadine from Saskatchewan, Canada, is very familiar with this initiative. “It was brought on by one of our neighbors, suggesting it on our neighborhood’s Facebook group and then others followed,” she told Bored Panda. “A lot of us can’t turn [the Christmas lights] on because we had a bad hail storm come through two summers ago and we’re still getting work done on our houses. We’d all have them on if it was not the case.”

Nadine lives in one of these houses. But it didn’t stop her from contributing. “I did, however, put on my white LED tree in the front,” she said. “We have a tight-knit neighborhood here. We call ourselves The Cove. We look out for each other and this pandemic will be no different.”

The woman is married to a doctor, so their family is well-aware of the tough situation. “For us, in our house, it’s not a matter of if this virus will get to us, it’s more a question of when because [my husband] may already have unknowingly exposed me and the kids. We have been self-quarantining ourselves since the first case was announced in the province,” she said.

“Neighbors have already offered to get us anything we need. We are now in a state of emergency in the province, with cases doubling overnight. It’s been pretty grim, to say the least in our house. We’ve had tough conversations as to what we are about to face. How we are going to deal when [my husband] gets sick, when I get sick.”

Nadine said her husband is sad for all the patients he’s likely going to lose. So the lights came just when everyone needed them. “When I saw the lights on, it brought me back to Christmas. It brought me back to a time where none of this was happening, a time where we weren’t afraid of what’s to come. It brought me back to the birth of Jesus and the reassurance that he has this under control. It’s in his hands.”

Twitter Users Are Posting Things We Haven’t Thought About Since Elementary School, But Will Instantly Remember (30 Pics)

There’s something about school memories that makes them so vivid and long-lasting, it feels like they happened yesterday. The classic ones like leaving home wearing slippers or failing a math exam usually come back in a sweaty nightmare. Miscellaneous memories like stealing a scented marker from your classmate arrive with a flashback. More emotional ones like an auntie picking you up all worn-out after another day at school can be triggered by a sharp valerian scent that reminds you of her.

But the most peculiar thing about these experiences is that they’re both too specific and too weird to digest. That’s why, when Twitter users started sharing their personal flashbacks from elementary school, people came to the conclusion that we all lived in the same childhood.

Pandas, if any of the posts below ring a bell to you, don’t forget to share your personal take on elementary school in the comments. And after you’re done reading this one, keep going down memory lane with some more school nostalgia here and here.

Typically, our earliest memories begin to form at around the time we’re 2 or 3. From this time on, kids learn how to express their inner emotions and make a coherent sentence. However, there are some dark spots in our memory when it comes to the age of kindergarten or elementary school. Scientists believe that childhood amnesia is to blame.

As soon as you become an adult, it becomes virtually impossible to retrieve early episodic memories. It seems quite paradoxical because the human ability to retrieve childhood memories shouldn’t deteriorate with time if the brain is functioning well and one could be described as healthy.

Modern theorists explain that the key to forgetting lies in the early development of the brain itself, because infants are able to recall information for weeks or even months. The amnesia of early events occurs suddenly over a period of two years, and the younger you are, the more likely you’ll forget things from early days. However, the tendency to forget slows down with age.

With every single reminiscence, we make a repetition in our brain that allows us to keep the episode longer in our memory banks. Walking down memory lane every now and then turns out to be an excellent way to keep the precious moments locked in our brains!

Dr. Phil’s House Goes Up For Sale And It’s The Perfect Proof That Money Can’t Buy Taste

Some celebrities are known for their lavish and extravagant homes that look more like modern art galleries instead of your regular dwelling. Just take talk show host, Dr. Phil, for example. Someone on Twitter recently spotted that his Beverly Hills villa went up for sale and it’s the perfect proof that money can’t buy taste. Not only that – it turns out it’s chock-full of all sorts of weird stuff, and some Twitter users even started a scavenger hunt looking for the most bizarre items in this crazy home.

Looking at the pictures, it’s pretty clear that Dr. Phil is into pretty weird things, ranging from teddy bears with the F word on their chests to weird sculptures of bunnies and gun walls.

Surprisingly, it looks pretty tame from the outside

We can’t help but wonder what the future buyer will do with all of that weird stuff. Maybe just buy the home and turn it into a modern art museum? Just charge $10 at the entrance and we’re sure the house would pay for itself within the end of the year.

People later found out that Dr. Phil doesn’t actually live there – his son 33-year-old son, musician Jordan McGraw does. That explains it – kind of. He even gave a tour of the crazy home a few years back although it has changed a bit since. Oh, and the gun wall is apparently an anti-gun statement.

Turns out the house was inhabited by Dr. Phil’s son, musician Jordan McGraw, for the last few years
