22 Rare Star Wars Polaroids From 'Return Of The Jedi'

These days, Star Wars can be a bit of a polarizing series. Many fans moan and groan about the deterioration of storytelling, how they feel rushed, and how there are tons of unresolved plot lines - not to mention straight up plot holes. Instead of lamenting the new, why not celebrate the old? The original Star Wars trilogy starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford is nearly always worthy of a revisit. And what better way to revisit than with a gallery of rare Polaroids from Return of the Jedi? Polaroids were utilized to preserve continuity by prop stylists, wardrobe, and the script supervisor. Generally, these photos would be destroyed after production, so we're lucky to have this amazing behind-the-scenes look at production. We've put together some of our favorites, but you can enjoy a whole lot more over at vintag.es .

No more influencers. Society has passed the need for influencers. 

While the influencers themselves may disagree with this sentiment, anyone who has been scrolling their way through the garbage fire of 2020 is probably with it. We're not sure if we're spending more time on the internet or if they're losing it because they can't travel and dine out on clout alone, but they've become way more insufferable than we ever thought possible. The only thing we can really do to cope is mock them, and YouTube's effspot makes that extremely easy with this compilation of these vapid souls running wild on the streets of Los Angeles. Brace yourself: cringe is coming.

20 Cursed Christmas Images For Festive Freaks

For anyone who enjoys holiday festivities but is desperately bored with the same old decorations, family photos, TV specials, and Mariah Carey Christmas hits, Chris Maggio is one honorary memelord who knows how to mix it up by embracing the inherent awkwardness of western holiday traditions and deep focusing into the cringe. His 'Male Chef' photo series satirizes the familiar and banal parts of holiday practices and turns Christmas into Cursed-mas.

We're pleased to share Maggio's repulsive reimagining of holiday ritual. It's fun to try and formulate some sort of narrative as you scroll through these cursed gems.

22 Cursed Thanksgiving Images

Beautiful, shallow-focus closeups of warm pie and glistening cranberry sauce are cool if you want to feel really hungry for some reason, but otherwise, scrolling through an endless Instagram feed of the same holiday dishes can get pretty damn boring. How about some content that's both festive and cursed? The antithesis of food porn, if you will. Photographer Chris Maggio is someone who truly appreciates the repulsive beauty of the cursed image. We're featuring some of the most absurd Thanksgiving images from Maggio's 'Male Chef' series, which satirizes holiday traditions. We've also included a handful of random cursed tidbits from the weird crevasses of the internet for good measure.

This 'Grandma: Gone Wild' Photoshoot Is Hilarious Wholesome Goodness

Photographer Samantha Bishop is nothing if not a devoted daughter. When her mother requested a saucy photoshoot, Bishop just had to make her mother's wishes come true - even if her demands were that the shoot take place in a bathtub full of yarn. Both mother and daughter seem to have gotten very into the photoshoot. Mom hamming it up for the camera, daughter incorporating some hilarious details (Werther's, anyone??). The photos were a Christmas gift for Bishop's father. His reaction, which is at the end of the photo set, is absolutely priceless.  

Funny grandma photoshoot, yarn.
