Artists design iconic architecture using only gingerbread and candy

The designs of such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright and I.M. Pei are unmistakable — most people would recognize the Louvre or Guggenheim Museum anywhere and in any medium. For better or worse, so is the Candyland-esque aesthetic of the gingerbread houses people see around the holidays. Artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin decided to play with those ideas, recreating famous museums and galleries from around the world using only gingerbread and candy.

The pair showcased Gingerbread and Candy Art Galleries at Miami’s Art Basel festival earlier this month. Each image of their sculpture is shot in black and white, “a deliberate antidote to the vivid colors and sweetness” associated with gingerbread houses.

How The Makers Of Candy Crush Can Avoid A Crash

The future of King.com, the maker of Candy Crush, depends on whether or not it can develop new hits to follow up its rise to worldwide prominence. Something others who have come before it have not been able to do.

If you don’t already play it, you've seen it — on the subway, in line at the grocery store, or in the elevator. It's a simple, brightly colored, pattern-matching game called Candy Crush Saga, and it's the hottest game on the planet. Tens of millions of people play it on their phones every day, and yet almost none of them could name the company that puts it out.

That would be King.com, a 550-person company that has ridden the explosive popularity of the game to a confidential IPO filing (think: Twitter). A public offering will infuse cash into the already booming company and, potentially, help it grow even faster. What could go wrong?

Well, ask Zynga. In 2009, that company released FarmVille, which also held Candy Crush-level momentum, and two years later helped propel Zynga to one of the largest tech IPOs since Google. But in the intervening four years since Farmville's release, Zynga has seen its value completely collapse from a series of bad decisions that ultimately led to CEO Mark Pincus stepping down. In short, it couldn't find another game to match the success of FarmVille and its follow-up CityVille.

The challenge before King.com is to avoid Zynga's fate in the immediate aftermath of its IPO. (Zynga, to be fair, is currently in the midst of a turnaround.) To do that, it must leverage the popularity of Candy Crush Saga into a stable and growing public company.

It won't be easy — interviews with nearly a dozen insiders, former and current employees at Zynga, industry watchers, and designers reveal that there are still significant questions around King's ability to branch out beyond its superstar game. However, the good news is that King.com has built an organizational infrastructure specifically designed to avoid suffering Zynga's fate — provided they are able to find a future beyond Candy Crush Saga.

King.com has in fact been around even longer than Zynga. Founded in 2003, the company went largely unrecognized until the launch of Bubble Witch Saga — a bubble-popping game — in September 2011. Candy Crush Saga followed just eight months later, launching first on Facebook in April 2012. Things didn’t take off for King.com, however, until it ported the two games to mobile later that year. Now, roughly 100 million people play its games daily, and more than half of those people are playing Candy Crush Saga, according to AppData, a service that tracks apps connected to Facebook. King.com also says Candy Crush Saga sees 700 million plays every single day.

Finally, Some Decent Medical Marijuana Cotton Candy

This is a video of severe medical marijuana patients ‘Bud Master’ and ‘Bud Jesus’ of The Dank City examining Kandy Care’s THC infused fairy floss. Or perhaps the video was just to enforce stoner stereotypes, it was hard to inform.

Struck the jump for a closeup of the product and the video.

Like Melted Candy: Giant Florescent Pink Slugs Found

giant-pink-slug.jpg

This is a newly discovered species of slug found on Mount Kaputar in New South Wales, Australia. I thought it looked like a melted AirHead. Or a unicorn turd. Unfortunately, scientists weren’t brave enough to poke it with a stick to see if rainbows and happiness shot out so there’s no guarantee it’s actually a slug. “It has tentacles.” Oh, like you’ve never seen a unicorn dropping with tentacles before? “I’ve never seen a unicorn dropping PERIOD.” It’s like you don’t even care if you win this argument.

Thanks to ChaosLex, who would have licked that thing on questions asked.

Eye Candy: Awesome Cut-Paper Silhouette Action Scenes

western-scene.jpg

This is an awesome series of photographs (and behind the scenes shots) by Geekologie Reader and photographer/designer David Reeves. He cuts little silhouettes out of paper, then varies their distance from his lens to create some really beautiful scenes. He even did some creepy SPOT-ON ones from Limbo. So go check them out. Then, come check me out. “You look terrible.” I’m, uh…I’m not wearing my Jon Hamm mask? “Not unless he looks like panties.” I CAN EXPLAIN. “You like wearing panties on your head?” Well damn Columbo, save some detective work for the rest of the readers.

Hit the jump for the very worthwhile shots, including some zombie attack, Batman, ninja and Limbo action.
