Enter The Twilight Zone With The SCP Foundation

Are you a fan of the unknown? Do you tend to investigate strange encounters that have unexplainable results? In that case, the SCP Foundation may be perfect for you. It’s a site the crosses Kolchak: The Night Stalker with the Men In Black. A place where reality and the ethereal meet. Right along the lines of Creepypasta, the SCP Foundation is a wiki featuring articles about strange, unusual, and seemingly supernatural entities.

Show Off Your Creativity With These 8 Subreddits

One of the hardest things about taking on a creative project is not having anyone to share it with when all is said and done. Although there’s enough reason to just make stuff for fun, sometimes it’s great to get other people’s opinions. As we’ve said before, Reddit is an excellent place to share links and discuss topics with people from all over the world.

5 Online Sources For Digital Art Tutorials

Every so often, I believe that everyone has some sort of creative urge. Whether it turns into a beautiful painting on canvas or simple bathroom graffiti, it’s all driven by the same fire. Fortunately, with all the technology that surrounds us, we have an easy outlet to carry forth our desires to create, and that comes in the form of digital art. What is digital art? It could be a painting, a model, a graphic design, or even a photo composition.

How To Create Your Own Basic Music Video

There are often lots of creative musical artists out there just waiting to shine, but as I recently discussed with someone in the music industry, you are nearly forced to have some form of video to accompany your music these days. As nerve-wracking as that may sound to some, it’s really not that hard to make your own online video content. To make things simple, I’m going to say that you just need three things for this basic tutorial.

What I Think About DSLR Video [Opinion]

If there’s one thing that I know, it’s that DSLR video production is here to stay. As a DSLR-owner, I’ve finally succumbed to the new wave of production, and I can’t complain too much (though I can complain). With that being said, I’d like to give you just a quick overview as to what I personally think about DSLRs. I have both my pros and cons about them.

6 Unwritten Rules For Posting Content On Reddit [Opinion]

Every society and/or community has their own unwritten rules of proper etiquette, courtesy, and communication. Granted, I’m not going to say every set of rules is perfect, but I will say that they do exist. As a matter of fact, the social sharing site Reddit has its own set of said rules (in addition to its official rules that do exist). Today, I’ve got only six of the billion unwritten rules that exist on Reddit.

Experience The Perfect Combination Of Mario & Portal With Mari0

Do you ever see Nintendo and Valve getting together to create something beautiful? No? Me neither. Thankfully, the kind folks at Stabyourself manufactured this hypothetical gaming lovechild all on their own, and it has come in the form of of Mari0, the perfect combination of Mario and Portal. It’s a crazy little game, but it actually works. Not only that, but it works quite well.

Live Out Your Operating System Nostalgia With The Restart Page

Here on the Internet, you’ll see a whole lot of nostalgia – old movies, old music… Pokémon. It’s all here, and if it doesn’t affect the rest of your life too much, there’s nothing wrong with living in the past (just don’t get too carried away, now). With all that said, a little site called The Restart Page is definitely worth taking a looksie if you have a few minutes of your time.

How This MakeUseOf Writer Procrastinates In 8 Easy Steps

As you may know, MakeUseOf isn’t staffed by robots that churn out articles daily through an automatic system. All of us have our own methods of getting down to the writing. Since I’m not a full-time freelance writer, it takes me a little extra oompah to get myself started. With that in mind (and based on what I’m doing right now), I figured I’d give you a little insight into what I’m doing. Basically, here’s how I procrastinate.

6 Of The Most Unusual Products On Vat19

We’ve briefly talked about Vat19 on MakeUseOf, so you may know a little about it already. Basically, the site sells very interesting items and gifts. On top of that, they make a video of each item that is typically quirky, and although it is pretty much a commercial, it’s worth watching. Here on MakeUseOf, we like the unusual.

5 Facebook Notifications That I Can’t Stand [Opinion]

We recently talked about an easy way to clear up email notifications, but that doesn’t mean Facebook notifications themselves aren’t still a problem. These notifications are great when they actually pertain to you and are relevant to what is currently going on in your life, but sometimes they simply don’t. It gets really annoying, and yes… this is all silly.
