Team Twilight Zone


Team Edward or Team Jacob? Those supernatural looks have been seriously toned down after pop artist Casey Weldon gave them the Eye of the Beholder look for Gallery 1988's recent Twilight Zone show. I must have missed it the first time around, but they are for sale again for the holidays. The creepy, creepy holidays.

Famous Robots Roles During The Robot Apocalypse

There are some small errors in this (seems C-3PO becomes a Borg during the apocalypse and Bender's primary objectives are bending, "cheesing" it, and killing all humans,) but I love how they all turn on us in the end. (Robot Roll Call by Pleated-Jeans, via zupaztrupa)

Cookie Monster For Saturday Night Live Host!



"Me know that many of you think of me as cookie-eating fanatic, bordering on glutton. Actually, me prefer the term cookie enthusiast."

Sesame Street's Cookie Monster wants to update his images and to do so he is campaigning to host Saturday Night Live. His audition is, by far, better than anything SNL has done recently, plus you get Monster Gaga as the musical guest playing Cookie Face. (Link via The Ampersand)

Why So Curious, George?


The Batman, Curious George crossover did not unfold as well as hoped but, in retrospect, exactly as one would have expected.

Why So Curious, George? by Skeleton-Boy (Thomas Boguszewski).

Note: I found this on a Tumblr site, but I'm not giving credit as they, nor any of the sites they reblogged it from bothered to give Thomas any credit or link to his site, which took me under two minutes to look up. This behavior is rampant on Tumblr and while I like it for discovery, people need to step it up. Seriously uncool.

Harry Potter Is Dirty Harry


"Police Inspector 'Dirty' Harry Potter is a hot-headed rookie fresh out of the Hogwarts Police Academy. His first assignment is a sadistic serial killer known only as 'Voldemort'. Dirty Harry will stop at nothing to solve this crime even if it means roughing up a few muggles along the way."

Well, Daniel Radcliffe has said he wanted more adult roles. (T-Shirt Laundry via Fashionably Geek)

Maybe You Can Hire The Pop Culture Team


Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the Pop Culture Team.

Glen Brogan put together the perfect stereotypical gang for Front Magazine. 'We have Peter Venkman as the ladies man, Donatello as the brains, Chewbacca as the muscle, Screech as the wild card, Dobby as the mascot, and the A-Team van as the vehicle."
