“Neomorphus” is an insanely surreal animated two-minute stop-motion short film created by the Brazil-based Animatorio studios. In the film, imaginary creatures adapt through a fantastic cycle of darkly morbid transformations. This is a wonderfully strange way to begin your day!
Includes color photographs, as well as the wickedly twisted animated short film.

This week GlobalPost published an interesting series on the challenges posed by the world's rapid urbanization, focusing in particular on Dhaka, Bangladesh, which it identified as the "fastest growing megacity in the world."
Indeed, the population growth numbers in Dhaka are staggering. According to U.N. population figures, in 1985 the city had less than five million people; by 2009 it had just under 15 million. By 2025 it is projected to surpass 20 million inhabitants.
But Dhaka, of course, is not alone in this growth: as an article on megacities in the Christian Science Monitor last May noted, by 2050 7 out of 10 people would be living in one.
(A megacity is typically defined as an urban agglomeration that has more than 10 million people.) Currently the world has 20 or so of these cities: by 2025 we could have more than 30.
As for what this means for the planet, the authors of GlobalPost's report see the issue as follows: The world's rapid urbanization is a reality fraught with both peril and hope. The peril is obvious. Overcrowding, pollution, poverty, impossible demands for energy and water all result in an overwhelming sense these megacities will simply collapse. But the hope, while less obvious, needs more attention. The potential efficiencies of urban living, the access to health care and jobs, along with plummeting urban birth rates have all convinced some environmental theorists the migration to cities may in fact save the planet. But only, these experts hasten to add, if this shift is well managed.
With that in mind, here is a look at the current 10 largest megacities, along with their projected 2025 populations. (Full U.N. data also at this site.)

Soccer fans couldn’t believe their eyes the moment a man stripped to a provocative g-string and raced across the field in the middle of a game!
The shocking moment unfolded in Brazil on Sunday during a match between Sao Paolo Football Club and Santos Football Club. Stunned players, spectators and TV viewers were taken by surprise when a Santos FC goal celebration was interrupted by a gallivanting shirtless male field invader who wore a black-and-white stripped g-string and waved a red sarong.
It’s unclear whether it was a show of support or a gibe to the Sao Paolo team (whose uniforms are red and black-and-white stripped).
The bomber’s intriguing and ambiguous physique has made the video an Internet hit. More than a million viewers have circulated the footage, and commenters are divided as to whether the man had pectoral implants or suffers from gynecomastia–a condition that produces an abnormal amount of fatty breast tissue in men. Confused by his muscular tone and well-endowed breasts, several video descriptions have incorrectly labeled the man a “shemale.”
Watch him get apprehended after the jump!

Sao Paulo artists Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo obliged London's Tate Gallery by painting their distinctive yellow graffiti on outside walls of the museum. Just a month later, their hometown began rolling gray paint across one of the brothers' murals as part of clean-up efforts.
Officials did an abrupt about-face after the Pandolfos and other artists complained both to the city and in the news media. Now Sao Paulo is creating a registry of street art to be preserved, exempt from Mayor Gilberto Kassab's drive to eliminate ``visual pollution.'' The episode is sparking a public discussion of what constitutes art.
``Outside of Brazil, graffiti art has been much more accepted,'' said Gustavo Pandolfo, speaking by telephone from Barcelona, Spain. ``Galleries and museums invite us to do shows. And in Sao Paulo, where we do this mural for free as a present to the people of the city, it's viewed as trash.''
Under the Clean City law, enacted in 2006, billboards were removed, signs with large corporate logos were scaled back, and graffiti is being expunged.
The Pandolfos' 680-meter (2,230-foot) mural on retaining walls along the 23 de Maio expressway, south of downtown, was half-covered by gray paint on July 3. The destruction occurred even though the art had been officially sanctioned.
Some of the city's 800 inspectors ``understood the Clean City law to mean paint over anything that's irregular,'' Monteiro said. ``Because the law didn't give objective criteria, it was left up to subjective opinion.''
Sao Paulo is developing those criteria, giving priority to cataloguing works of graffiti that were painted with permission from the property owner, Monteiro said. The Clean City law prohibits graffiti that functions as advertising. The city expects the catalog to be ready by November.
Before the crackdown, South America's biggest city had been seen as a place where graffiti artists could go to work without interference from passersby or police, Gustavo Pandolfo said.
``Graffiti would stay up for 10 years, and no one would erase it,'' he said. ``People liked seeing the graffiti.''
Hundreds of the brothers' works have disappeared during the clean-up campaign, he said. That would be a costly loss if measured by the price of their gallery works.
The Tate exhibition is helping change Sao Paulo's perception of its graffiti art, Monteiro said.
``We want to make this part of the city's look,'' she said. ``It's a trademark of the city.''

Adbusters Magazine ran this interesting story last fall (Adbusters #73, Sep-Oct 2007) by David Evan Harris, and featured an interview by On The Media’s Bob Garfield with Vinicius Galvao, a reporter for Folha de São Paulo, Brazil’s largest newspaper, about São Paulo’s ban on visual pollution. São Paulo’s “Lei Cidade Limpa” or Clean City Law, which went into effect last year, put an end to commercial advertising and signage around the city, the fourth largest metropolis in the world. The ban extends to all kinds of outdoor signage and has a greater reach than putting an end to billboard campaigns, and has become an unexpected success.
