You’ll Never Look At Movies The Same Way Again. These Before & After Shots Are Crazy.

It has been discovered that the average American watches television about 5 hours a day. That’s a lot of programming being consumed and that number doesn’t even include how many hours of movies we see in theaters or in our own homes. Every day we are being entertained, but every day we are being lied to (but not in a harmful way). Most people would never catch how it’s being done. Special effects and CGI (computer generated imagery) is a useful tool in the entertainment industry. Over the years, the techniques have improved. Now, when most television shows or movies use CGI, the viewers can’t even tell what’s real and what’s not… HINT: Most of it’s not.

Before: we see a green screen and a boom mic.

After: a cruise ship on the ocean.

Before: actor Andrew Lincoln riding a horse in a parking lot.

After: Rick Grimes riding a horse into Atlanta.

Before: a small soccer field.

After: a giant World Cup stadium.

Before: a private entrance into a house.

After: a private entrance that leads up to a mansion.

Before: tables in front of a green screen.

After: a bustling restaurant.

Before: two actors posing in front of a screen.

After: a scene in the middle of a city.

Before: a helicopter body in a parking lot.

After: the remnants of an apocalypse.

You should never trust anything you see in the movies or television shows. “Movie magic” has been around for decades, but now the magic is almost seeming… magical. Share these cool before and after photos by clicking below.

This Girl Was Sick Of Her Tiny City Apartment Balcony. Wait Til You See What She Did To It.

Some might think that the outdoor deck in your apartment is just a waste of space. After all, you’re never out there, and it takes up space you’d love to add to your bedroom. But have you ever actually thought of how you could put it to better use? Well this Portlandian was inspired one day after complaining about Big City livin’ and the result is awesome-sauce. Check it out:

She always wanted a backyard, so her roommate surprised her with one. The cat was not impressed 😉

First she lined the balcony with a tarp for easy cleanup, then she spread some soil.

She then put a small fence to stop that lovely cat from trying to climb through the bars.

She rolled out the sod and gave it some water and they lined up some extra plants.

And of course, a chair was added, i.e., relax station.

Project complete!

2 months later, lawn is still going great, with only one small dead spot where everyone stands the most.

According to them, they let the grass grow without interruption.

Unless it gets to be too much, and only then do they break out scissors.

Add in a few lights, and you’ve got a great place to chillaxe.

How cool is that? Well I know what my weekend project is going to be. Toughest part now is getting MY roommate to agree 😉 Source: Imgur via Reddit

What She Does With 7-Up Is Pure Culinary Genius (And It Looks So Delicious)

Okay, okay, soda might not be great for you, but you can’t deny that it’s delicious, right?

Sitting out by the pool with an ice-cold glass of fizzy goodness is basically the definition of refreshing.

If these two treats are high on your “gotta have this right now” list, this amazing recipe is the one for you.

I really need to learn how to bake, because this is just too good to miss.

Imagine Just Casually Strolling Down The Street When All Of A Sudden… WATCH OUT! Wait, What?

British chalk and street artist Julian Beever (not to be confused with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber) is known all over the world for his stunning pavement drawings, and especially his 3D illusions, which are drawn in a special distortion to create an impression of 3D when seen from one particular viewpoint. His works are so amazing that people call him the Pavement Picasso, and when you see these incredible works of art below you’ll agree.

What immense imagination he has, some of these don’t even look real, like they are from some other magical realm. Source: Julian Beever and imgur Share these incredible pictures of Julian’s street art with your friends below.

He Got Shot In The Head To Make A Point. And A Very Good One At That.

Have you ever looked, really looked, at advertisements you pass on your daily commute? Many probably focus on the inherent needs, wants and desires of consumers, but there is a shocking trend you might not have noticed. New York-based artist Jon Burgerman, did though. By just posing next to some ads in the subway (and then editing the photos), he  made people realize how violence is romanticized in our culture… and it’s everywhere.

You might not realize it…

Jon Burgerman

But this violence is everywhere.

Jon Burgerman

Weapons of every kind are used in advertising.

Jon Burgerman

Maybe we shouldn’t be so romantic about this kind of violence.

Jon Burgerman

“It’s my belief that through these playful, creative acts, Art can act as an agent to change the world, by being the catalysis to allow people to change their worlds in really simple ways.”

Jon Burgerman

“The goal with head shots was just to make people look again at and re-evaluate the type of imagery we have no choice of avoiding in our public spaces.”

Jon Burgerman

(H/T Bored Panda) He calls the series Head Shots. Although the point of these digitally altered photos is to convince people that perhaps public advertisements aren’t the proper place for violence, British newspapers rejected these photos for being too violent. Have you noticed how often violence is pushed in your face during your daily routine? After seeing these photos, you just might.
