Eye Splash by Paul Stowe
No one would blame you for thinking these were real eyes looking back at you, but you’re wrong so get over it: what you see here is actually just good ol’ fashioned pencil grease. Using mechanical and graphite pencils (along with reference photos) and the better part of a 40 hour work week, Paul recreates the human form with flawless precision, made even more high five-worthy by the undulating contours of liquid that bead off his graphite anatomy.
nintendrunk: Marshmallow Vodka Kirby
Ingredients (makes 3):
1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin powder or agar powder for vegetarians
1/4 cup + 3 oz. chilled marshmallow vodka
1/6 cup cold water (2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons)
1/2 cup sugar
1/6 cup light corn syrup
2 large egg whites at room temperature
Small pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
Directions: Hold on to your warp stars! This recipe is a bit complex.
- Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch together in a bowl;
- Coat the insides of both the tops and bottoms a spherical ice cube molds (such as these) with a thin layer vegetable shortening, add some of the powdered sugar/starch mixture and shake so that the inside surfaces of the mold are well coated; return any unused powder to the bowl and set aside to use later;
- Sprinkle the gelatin or agar powder over 1/4 cup of cold marshmallow vodka in a bowl;
- Attach a candy thermometer to a small saucepan; add the water, sugar, and corn syrup. Stir the ingredients a few times then turn the stove to medium-high;
- Using the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites in an electric mixer on slow until frothy, then add a touch of salt;
- Once the syrup mixture gets to about 210°F, turn the speed on the electric mixer up to fast;
- After the syrup gets to 245°F, carefully pour it into the mixer;
- As the egg white and syrup mixture is whipping, add the agar/gelatin and vodka;
- Add the vanilla extract and 4-5 drops of red food dye; continue whipping until the outside of the mixing bowl is cool and the mixture has grown 2-3 times its original size;
- Pour the marshmallow mixture into the greased and powdered bottoms of the molds (there should be enough for 3, but the molds come in sets of two - so maybe make 2 Kirbys and 1 Ditto?) to the fill line, packing it down gently; add the mold tops and store at room temperature;
- Once the marshmallows are set (6+ hours) take the Kirbys out of their molds and coat them lightly in the leftover corn starch/powdered sugar mixture;
- Fill a culinary syringe with about an ounce of marshmallow vodka (2 tablespoons) and inject it a little bit at a time into one of your Kirbys at various depths; refill and repeat with the other marshmallows (inject in rough or uneven parts of your marshmallows rather than on the smooth parts);
- The marshmallows might leak a little bit so store them on a paper towl on top of a plate until they’re relatively dry;
- Take a pinch of the corn starch/powdered sugar mixture and add a splash of water and a drop of red dye; mix it with a spoon, then use a toothpick to apply Kirby’s cheeks; do likewise for his eyes but with 2-3 drops of blue dye; and
- Serve on a yellow cocktail napkin cut into the shape of a warp star.
A note from the creator:“Hiiiii!” This is our take on a Jello shot. The marshmallow recipe is based on this one, which is great as it is… but then we found a way to make them look like Kirby and fit about a shot’s worth of vodka into each 2.5 inch marshmallow. Inhale them! Copy Kirby’s drunk & friendly ability! Spit them at your enemies!
The description above worked with unflavored gelatin; if you’re using a vegetarian substitute, you may need to make certain small adjustments.

Holy butts! The Legend of Zelda 3DS
It’s not a remake for a Link to the Past — it’s a new game set in the SNES classic’s world, releasing this holiday season! It will feature new dungeons and an original storyline.
The new title looks to “”reinvigorate the flat 2D world of A Link to the Past with a sense of height and volume,” making it easier to differentiate levels and adding a new puzzle-solving mechanic. Link can also now become a drawing and move within walls, changing the game’s perspective and allowing you to see previously hidden connections to solve puzzles.
Watch the reveal and trailer past the break:
