Depends what you mean by "make" a snowman.
So here we are in Year Two. Feels different, doesn't it? Sexier. More established. Ready to move on up. To the sky. To at least a moderately nice apartment, if not deeee-luxe. I'll be on a secret mission this weekend which will no doubt produce lots of material for next week, so just try not to sit on the wrong end of the tenterhook until I get back.
Lords of light! It's a Thundarr the Barbarian tribute page. I always liked that cartoon as a kid because it was by far the strangest thing on Saturday morning TV (even more so than the Herculoids). I mean, it takes place AFTER the apocalypse! Somebody broke the moon, for chrissakes! And one of the villains was a flying green brain. And then there's the episode with the frozen orangutan from the 20th century that ... er, anyway. (via)
I liked this bit from lindsayism describing her reaction to some godforsaken book project that seeks to assemble an "oral history of blogging." I visualize some kind of Walker Percy assemblage of ancient, weathered bloggers squatting on their clapboard porches. "Yessir, first blog ah ever seen come up on thet livejournal, then this feller in ter next cubicle started up one on thet blogspot, and then ah says, ah got to git me one a them, and .. and ... lordamighty, it was a mighty fine time ter be alive." [wipes tear, sucks on corncob pipe, takes cellphone camera photo of interviewer] Lindsay also points to yet another iteration of endlessly repurposed Super Friends animation, this time with dialogue from Office Space.
Here's a flattering and frequently updated archive of screencaps of various celebs and talking heads in mid-blink. Misty was a 1970s lite-horror comic in Britain, and someone took the time to scan and post the entire run in full. It's nowhere near as lurid or gory as the American versions of the classic horror-comic era, but it's impressive nontheless (obviously I like the angry Mr. Frosty pictured above). "Sonia's Escape" is an excellent Russian short cartoon that uses a truly weird, compelling, Picasso-like animation style ... I find the pulsing, corpulent cat especially groovy. Mostly more traditional but cute nonetheless is "Hello", another short toon about the struggle between love and format obsolescence. Decidedly not toon-like or suitable for audiences of any kind are these repurposed romance novel covers. (via)
