These nightmarish images feel like scenes from a B-movie, but they’re really photos of a powerful traveling art installation by Colombian artist Rafael Gómezbarros entitled Casa Tomada (“Seized House”). Giant ant sculptures swarm across urban exteriors and gallery walls. As if the idea of monstrous ants wasn’t already freaky, these 2-foot-long specimens feature tree branches for legs and segmented bodies made of joined pairs of fiberglass resin skulls and fabric. These hair-raising urban interventions are meant to draw attention to the uprooting, immigration and forced displacement of peasants and migrant workers in Latin America.

"When placed on the facades of government buildings and blank gallery walls alike, the ants give off a chilling sense of foreboding and encroachment. By placing them in swarms, Gómezbarros makes the insects even more strikingly representative of the peasants displaced by war and strife in Gómezbarros’ native Colombia."

Another great video making the internet rounds to remind us big girls that we can do whatever the hell we want, we shouldn’t let society dictate what we can and cannot do, and… we is hot as hell ;P

She’s super talented, and athletic— I can’t even imagine how much strength and flexibility one needs to do this. Not to mention, she just exudes sexiness.

I’m starting to think… My next project? Pole dancing?

This is spectacular.

Amazing (don’t read the youtube comments)

Fat woman pole dancing reminds me I can do anything I set my mind to.

Erykah Badu Interviews Kendrick Lamar

  • BADU: How do you choose chicks from backstage?
  • LAMAR: How do I choose chicks from backstage?
  • BADU: Yeah, what is the protocol?
  • LAMAR: I try not to. [laughs] I’m too scared. Anybody who knows me knows that I’m probably the most scared person when it comes to that because I’m so caught up in the act of sex, of something going crazy, going out of my control. I’m too paranoid.
  • BADU: [laughs] So you just pass?
  • LAMAR: I’ve got to because I’ve seen a situation where it got totally out of hand, where something seemed so innocent, and now this person has got allegations on them. It spooked me. This was before my career really started, though—before any “Kendrick Lamar.” And that right there? It changed my whole perception about certain things. I’ll always keep that in the back of my head.
  • BADU: So who is your asshole-checker?
  • LAMAR: Who is my what?
  • BADU: Your asshole-checker—the person in your crew or your family who let’s you know if you’re being a asshole.
  • LAMAR: I have two, actually. [both laugh] But the main one is a friend of mine—a lady friend who has known me since high school. She has always been someone, since day one, who has said something whenever I’m an asshole, or also if I’m doin’ something positive—but more so when I’m out of my element.
  • BADU: What’s your favorite cereal?
  • LAMAR: Fruity Pebbles. When people ask for my rider, they think I’m crazy: Fruity Pebbles, baked chicken, bottle of Hennessy, and some Polo socks.
  • BADU: What do you, as a man, envy about what it means to be a woman?
  • LAMAR: There’s just a certain knowledge instilled in a woman. There are these things that women have that men just can’t grasp: the understanding of love; the understanding of being; having a certain type of care in your heart and knowing when to be compassionate; knowing how to be a confidante…
  • BADU: That’s a good perspective. Something I envy that men have is that ability to grow a goatee. I think that’d be really hot on me.
