Redditor Kgriffin88 shared this photo of an awesome freight train car painted to look like a classic NES controller, but with one important difference. The car was painted by a graffiti writer named Texer and, instead of giving it two round A and B buttons, this colossal controller has three buttons - A, L and B - for Texer’s ALB crew.

If you happen to find yourself about six miles east of Seoul, South Korea, be on the lookout for this awesome roadside attraction. Called The Dreamy Camera, it’s a two-story building designed to look like a gigantic Rolleiflex Camera. It’s a fully-funtional coffee shop and camera museum. We don’t think this enormous walk-in camera takes photos, but we love the idea of simply standing inside, looking out the lens window and taking a photo from the perspective of the giant camera.
New York-based artist Thomas Doyle creates beautifully detailed and thoroughly unsettling mixed media dioramas using models and materials originally made for model train sets. Houses fall from the sky and crash into the earth, creating dystopian suburban scenes. Elsewhere another home and its residents have been completely reclaimed by nature. However Doyle is not trying to tell specific tales with these scenes. Instead he leave the interpretation up to the viewer. Choose your own (disastrous) adventure.
Doyle is currently showing work at the Torrance Art Museum as part of the Prep School: Prepper and Survivalist ideologies and utopianism/dystopian visions show, which runs through May 15, 2014.
This is the funniest thing I’ve ever read
When October Jones rides the train he amuses himself by privately selecting fellow passengers, determining what fictional character best matches their clothing and posture, and then drawing new heads for them on Post-it notes. He photographs his impromptu commuter makeovers and shares then on his Twitter feed, which might look familiar to you if you’re a fan of one of this other awesome projects, Texts from Dog.
Follow October Jones on twitter for more delightful sticky note traveler transformations.
