Vid Of The Day: Hey


Creepy-Ass Town Of The Day

At first it seemed like a sweet idea, but then... no.
From Colossal:
"This is one of those things you might never believe if somebody told you, and yet even when faced with the evidence in photos, video, or Google Maps, you find yourself questioning reality (and maybe shaking off a serious case of the heebie jeebies). Welcome to Nagoro, a small village tucked into the valleys of Shikoku, Japan, a place where old residents are being replaced by life-sized dolls.

The work is part of a project by longtime resident and artist Ayano Tsukimi who returned to the village after an 11-year absence to discover many of her old neighbors and friends had left for larger cities or simply passed away. The town itself is dying with a dwindling population of about 35 people.

While gardening one day, Tsukimi constructed a scarecrow in the image of her father and was suddenly struck with the idea to replace other friends and family members with similar dolls. Over 350 dolls and 10 years later, her work continues. She places each doll in a place she feels is important to the memory of that person, so strolling through the down you might discover these inanimate memorials working in fields, fishing in rivers, or passing time in chairs along the road."

News: Man dressed like pirate, armed with machete accused of 'stabbing car'


Man dressed like pirate, armed with machete accused of 'stabbing car'


A man dressed like a pirate, armed with a machete and carrying a cross attacked a car on Portland's east side Tuesday, according to witnesses.

Portland police said Konrad Bass, 30, was high on LSD at the time. Once police responded, paramedics took him to a hospital to be treated.

The alleged machete attack happened at Southeast Seventh Avenue and Morrison Street.

It probably looked something like this.

FOX 12 first received word of the incident when a witness tweeted the man was "stabbing a car with a sword" in front of Jay's Garage, a car repair shop located at 734 S.E. Seventh Ave.

Because Bass was given citations at the hospital and not booked into jail, no mug shot was available.

Police said Bass now faces charges of disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and menacing.
