Real-Life SpongeBob and Patrick Are Terrifying
You want to see something really scary? We're not talking your garden variety slasher or giant monster from space. This creature lurks in the depths of the ocean. In fact, you could say he lives in a pineapple under the sea. Yes, it's SpongeBob SquarePants. Though, not quite like you've ever seen him before.

3D artist Miguel Vasquez has decided to infiltrate our nightmares with his own take on the iconic cartoon from Nickelodeon. And he's bringing his pal Patrick Starfish with him. It's hard to say which character is more terrifying when they get the real world treatment. But you wouldn't want to come across either one of these monstrosities getting ripped and loaded on ice cream sundaes at your local Fossleman's.

These images are part of Vasquez's 'Best Friends Forever' project. He rendered the speed sculpts in Keyshot. As you can see, they are not for kids or the faint of heart.

‘Bill Nye Saves the World’ Review: Teaching Scientific Literacy to Millennials Makes for a Fist-Bumpy Ride

‘Bill Nye Saves the World’ Review: Teaching Scientific Literacy to Millennials Makes for a Fist-Bumpy Ride
Bill Nye has an admirable mission but an unenviable task: to combat scientific illiteracy in an era that doesn’t value expertise and reason. The title of his new Netflix TV series “Bill Nye Saves the World” isn’t hyperbole at all. It’s his hope to get viewers psyched up enough about science that they’re not just curious; they want to create a change for the better.

Food Network Star Alton Brown Dishes on Oscar DPs

Food Network Star Alton Brown Dishes on Oscar DPs
Why care what longtime Food Network personality Alton Brown thinks about the nominees in the Oscar’s cinematography category? Because he knows lenses, film stock, and formats as well as he knows ingredients, recipes, and cooking techniques.

“I started off as a cameraman when I was still in college, and moved into shooting music videos in the ‘80s, then became a full-time cinematographer and a director-cameraman for TV spots, which I did for about 10 years,” Brown says.

Eventually burnt out by the ad business, Brown saw two choices. “I could either move on to New York or Hollywood and concentrate on shooting, or I could go to culinary school and try to make a food show.”

He chose the latter, resulting in the groundbreaking 14-season series “Good Eats,” which holds up so well that repeats continue airing today. Brown directed 200 of its 250 episodes. He calls his latest show, “Iron Chef Gauntlet,
