Man Building Model Toronto

Toronto businessman Jean-Louis Brenninkmeijer has spent the past couple of years building a to-scale replica of his adoptive city at a warehouse in Mississauga.
The Rogers Centre has a retractable roof and a working Jumbotron. The St. Lawrence Market teems with mini bagels. Trees made of twigs and sponge cluster on the banks of a painted Don River.

Union Station

Distillery District

CN Tower
Brenninkmeijer got the idea for what he’s calling “Our Home and Miniature Land” from a similar, set-up in Hamburg, Germany called Miniatur Wunderland.

Cutaway World

Melody Owen's Cutaway World Tumblr cuts to the chase : "x-rays, dissection, third eyes, stripping away the outer shell, revealing, exposing the inside."


TV-Show Restaurants You Can Visit In Real Life

Have you ever wanted to slip into a booth at Tom's with the Seinfeld gang or dig into a gumbo at Dooky Chase? Perhaps you'd like to be a fly on the wall and eavesdrop on Frank Underwood as he plans his next nefarious plot. First We Feast has posted a guide to the best real-life restaurants we know from TV. Here are three to get your mouth watering:


Address and phone: 5801 Pulaski Hwy, Baltimore, MD (410-483-2379)
Signature dish: Pit beef sandwich
Best TV moment: Wee-Bey’s love of hot-as-hell food might come as no surprise to viewers, but it did make D’Angelo raise an eyebrow when the guys visited Chap’s for a bite. “Damn, Bey, how can you stand that shit with all that hot shit on it?” D’Angelo asked incredulously when Bey slathered his sandwich with horseradish. Wee-Bey doesn’t miss a beat. “The trick is not to give a fuck, boy. I got this.” (Photo: Shiny Metal Tiger)


Address and phone: 231 E Redwood St, Baltimore, MD (443-842-7430)
Signature dish: Braunschweiger sandwich
Best TV moment: In Season One, Frank Underwood’s (once and future) right-hand man, Doug Stamper, meets with the D.C. chief of police in the wee hours of the morning at this famed diner to kindly request turning a blind eye to Representative Peter Russo’s indiscretions. Oh, Doug, if you only knew what was in store. (Photo: Yelp)


Address and phone: 144 2nd Ave, New York, NY (212-228-9682)
Signature dish: Pierogis and borscht
Best TV moment: While Ben’s Pizzeria might make an appearance in the opening credits, it’s a scene at this 24-hour Ukrainian diner that truly taps in to what the show’s all about. After a series of terrible mishaps, Louie finds a tiny bit of peace eating breakfast with his pajama-clad daughters as the sun rises. (Photo: Yelp)

The Suburban Dad Who Took the 1960s’ Eeriest Photos

Ralph Eugene Meatyard was born in 1925 in Normal, Illinois. He was an optician and, on the surface, a typical suburban dad who coached his son’s baseball team and served as president of the PTA in Lexington Kentucky. He was also a self-taught photographer and the nightmarish work he produced was anything but normal. He is best known for his surreal images populated with dolls and masks, with family, friends and neighbors pictured in abandoned buildings or in ordinary suburban backyards.

In 1969, when asked about the sensation his photographs provoked, Meatyard said it was a feeling “akin to a shiver, and pleasurable as a shiver sometimes is.”
