New Museum of Selfies to Open Soon in Los Angeles for $25 Per Ticket

We’ve reached the next level of human vanity.

As if we weren’t seeing too much selfies on social media already, news tells us that, yes, a museum exclusively dedicated for selfies will be opening pretty soon. Is this the biggest proof of human vanity, so far? Well, maybe!

According to reports, the said museum will showcase selfie-inspired art along with the history of selfies. Of course, there will also be designated areas for museum-goers who want to take their own selfies during their visit.

The Museum of Selfies is scheduled to open in Los Angeles this January 2018.

According to co-founders Tonny Honton and Tair Mamedov, they thought it would be a great idea to open such a museum since people love going to museums not only to look at art but to take photos of themselves as well.

In an interview, they said:

“The relationship between people and art has changed.

“Now people don’t want to just be a silent consumer, they want to be a part of the art.

“There are many more selfies with the Mona Lisa than actual Mona Lisas.”

There will be a lot in store for selfie lovers.

Honton added:

“We definitely want people to laugh or be surprised by the entire exhibit. So we have the visual humor where people walk up, and they engage with the space. And we’re hoping they laugh, or they’re surprised, or are amused, and that they can’t help but want to take a picture with it.”

Among those to be highlighted in the museum are iconic selfies, such as those from Selfie Queen Kim Kardashian.

.

Historic selfies will also be featured such as this one which shows the first known use of “selfie stick” taken way back in 1934.

Other attractions will include a Game of Thrones iron throne made of selfie sticks, reported The Sun. As for the ticket price? Visitors will have to spend $25 per head.

Meanwhile, those who want to follow Museum of Selfies can check them out over at Instagram.

Comics Artist Shows Us How Vastly Different Western and Chinese Cultures Are

Hilarious and interesting at the same time. Check out #5!

By

What first comes to mind when you hear about China? Some of us would likely think about the fantastic food, its famous Great Wall, or perhaps some of the not-so nice aspects of the country (such as blatant piracy of products).

Well whether you’ve been there or not, there’s no denying that Chinese culture is indeed vastly different compared with the western. We’ve all seen that in books, movies, and in the news. Or maybe you’ve even personally noticed some differences as you observed your Chinese classmates, co-workers, or neighbors.

One artist on Instagram is currently making waves online for accurately depicting the distinct cultural disparaties between China and the west.

Born and raised in Beijing, Siyu has eventually spent 10 years “traveling, studying and working abroad in the US, UK, and France.” So yes, this artist has seen and experienced what it feels like living in both sides of the world – and this served as the inspiration for an ongoing weekly online comics series called Tiny Eyes.

In a BoredPanda post, Siyu shared:

“I started ‘Tiny Eyes’ comics a year ago in the hope of sharing Chinese culture through everyday life. To me, learning about other cultures has always been a fun experience, and I want to pass this feeling to people who are curious about China.

“In lots of my comics, I compare Chinese culture to western culture. Through comparison, we realize how differently we act in front of the same situation and how we tend to think in a certain way instead of another.

“In the end, every culture is ‘weird’ in its way, but it’s also the weirdness that makes it interesting.”

Check out the comics below along with some captions from the artist:

Dad Creates Epic Artwork on Lunch Bags to Help Son Make Friends

The best dad ever!

When we were still kids, parents would make sure that we had everything we needed before going to school - one of which was our lunch bags. Dominick, a dad hailing from California, is among those parents who take pride in preparing lunch for their kids. But mind you, he does it in a very different way.

For over 4 years, Dominick has been drawing on his son’s brown paper lunch bags. And mind you, his drawings are a work of art. According to him, he has managed to decorate more or less 550 bags. It is really amazing how passionate and determined he is.

Although his son is already in middle school, Dominick still continues to prepare and decorate his lunch bags. There was even a time when he decorated all lunch bags for his son’s soccer games when it was their turn to prepare snacks. For other people, breakfast might be the most important meal of a day but for Dominick, it is, without a doubt, lunch!

Check out the drawings below and be inspired by his creativity!
