Mad Quickies: Beyoncé Lemonade GIFs, Prince Video Game From the 90s, Art Crimes and More!

Oh hello, gang. I’m about to eat a whole bunch of ice cream. Because I can. You know what else I can do? Share the mid-week Quickies with you! And so…

Did you know that Prince had an interactive video game back in the 90s? Well now you do. -Via Donna

Photographer Levon Biss has photographed insects at the Oxford Museum of National History. Yeah, so? Check this out: “Working in this comprehensive manner required between 8,000 and 10,000 shots for each final image, moving the camera just ten microns (1/7th of the width of a human hair) between each shot.” The amount of detail captured here is… mindblowing.

What do you even know about Saturn’s moon, Titan? Well maybe you should learn how much like our own planet it is. Courtesy of the Cassini space probe.

Sometimes The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a 2/3 scale replica of the house from Psycho on its roof. This is one of those times.

We’re all stoked about Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the front of the US $20 bill. Seems there’s a trend. England is putting celebrated landscape artist J.M.W. Turner on their £20 note. Art and money. Who’d have paired the two?

Art + Crime = ART CRIMES

Just gonna leave these Beyoncé Lemonade GIFs here for y’all. You deserve it.
