A Rare Glimpse at a Deserted Great Wall of China Captured by Andres Gallardo Albajar

This past February architectural photographer Andres Gallardo Albajar traveled to the Great Wall of China where he was able to take in a rare sight—one of the seven wonders of the world without a single soul in sight. Albajar had expected to create the same tourist-filled images as others who visited the architectural feat, however when he arrived he found a thick fog encapsulating the structure. The dense cover may have been a deterrent for tourists, but this particular weather added further mystery to the deserted landscape Albajar captured in this recent series. Continue reading

Seen here in stabby mode, this is a video of knifesmith and Youtuber Kiwami Japan creating a functional knife from a roll of plastic kitchen wrap that he melted, molded, and sharpened (previously: forging knives out of aluminum foil and fish flesh).

First ‘Halloween’ Poster Heralds the Return of Michael Myers

Universal has released the first Halloween poster. We don’t know much about the story of this new Halloween other than the fact that it’s a sequel that disregards all Halloween films after the first Halloween II. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer plays her daughter, and the film will introduce Laurie’s granddaughter as presumably another potential victim for Michael Myers. David Gordon Green (Stronger) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley. Obviously, this teaser poster doesn’t give us much to go on, but I’…
