Asks Rahzzah: "How about, instead of reboots, Hollywood starts doing mash-ups?" Oh, yes please! Hey Hollywood, look though a few pages of this blog if you need any inspiration. (The Xavier's Club by Rahzzah, via Comics Alliance)
A collection of famous fictional twins as they may have looked in the womb. I can only imagine that babies being born with weapons and clothing would be a little disturbing. (Film Twins by Mr. Whaite, via That Geek Lover)
Graphic designer Jerod Gibson has created a series of typographical posters using quotes from classic movies and TV. Awesome stuff and it was hard to pick just one, but you can't ever go wrong with a good Homer Simpson quote. (Thanks, boyreporter)
From designer Jimmy Thomason: "This is my take on René Magritte’s The Son of Man, with a little Kubrick twist thrown in. I’ve always loved surrealist art and A Clockwork Orange is one of my wife’s favorite movies, so while we were talking about the movie recently, this design popped into my head."
If you haven't seen this parody of the New York Times/death of Osama bin Landen, it's worth checking out. It's got online news media down to a science, complete with comments: "Why are we still giving aid to Tatooine? They probably knew of Kenobi's existence the whole time and even helped him! That whole planet is just a big hive of scum and villainy." to op-eds: "Their Only Hope: The War on the Rebllion After Obi-Wan Kenobi"
Actually, it's the comments that really make it. (Thanks, @boyreporter)
I was digging through my saved files and came across this gem that I always meant to post, Princess Leia in a old-school Coppertone ad, but with a decidedly more adult geek flare. (Copper-Tatooine by Casey Weldon, prints here)
Through a strange series of events the Central Perk crew took on the powers of the Super Friends to become the Super Whiners:
Matt Le Blanc as Superman - perfect choice, all brawn, very little brain. Monica Geller as Green Lantern - I've no idea, really, why. Guess she had to be someone. Chandler Bing as Batman - a nice choice as the most neurotic of the superheroes. Phoebe Buffay as Aquaman - one talks to cats, the other to fish. Rachel Green as Wonder Woman - this really should have been Monica's role, though the hair was a wonder. Ross Geller as Robin - yep, they were both useless. (Link via Karl Heitmueller)
I've always been a fan of Jughead, but all the more now that I know he's a Pavement fan. And Pepé Le Pew like Liz Phair? Cool, as long as it's for Exile in Guyville, Whip-Smart & Whitechocolatespaceegg. From artist and illustrator Karl Heitmueller, who has three other of these charts. (From Flavorwire, thanks John Farrier)
Another awesome alphabet series from Fabian Gonzalez, who says he is wrapping up the series with this video-game-inspired alphabet. I did my worse on this one, only picking up 12 of 24. You can also get it on a poster or tee.
An epic conversation that consisted of quoting They Might Be Giants lyrics at @boyreporter yesterday led to a response from @tmbg and me finding this literal video version of Birdhouse In Your Soul. Countless screaming Argonauts indeed.
The Joker as Clockwork Orange's Alex would be terrifying. Alex was redeemable — they were able to, through mental torture, reach his moral core. I get the feeling that the Joker would have enjoyed being forced to watch graphically violent films. It would only make him crazier.
I don't need to take a quiz to know that a Snooki is not the right pet for me, though I might feed it vodka on the porch. Enjoy the rest of 14's work at Gallery of the Absurd, at least until the Beliebers see this.
And while a cheap time machine made out of pressboard does sound appealing, entering the dimension-bending maze that is an Ikea store just isn't worth it. See more Sci Fi Ikea Manuals by Caldwell Tanner.
Don't you forget about me. Seems like fans of Firefly won't. From artist Kari Fry: "It was a tough call, but I had to make it a direct reference to The Breakfast Club poster, which is five characters. I thought about shoehorning more characters in, but I needed to stay true to the iconic original"
