Disney Wars

As soon as Disney announced they were purchasing Lucasfilm, the interwebs quickly turned to welcoming their new corporate overlord. Above and below by Austin Madison (via Super Punch)

Above: James Silvani, who has a whole lot more of these.

OK, NC Winters may not be as on board.

8-Bit Graveyard

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand games
And grizzy video ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

Throne Of Games

"Have you ever seen the Bit Throne? The joysticks along the back, the cables of twisted steel, the jagged ends of controllers and gameboys all tangled up and melted? It is not a comfortable seat ser. Mario cut himself so often men took to calling him King Koopa, and Wart the Cruel was murdered in that chair. By that chair, to hear some tell it. It is not a seat where a man can rest as ease. Ofttimes I wonder why Luigi wanted it so desperately".

An awesome description by redditor odinsprice of Aaron Jasinski's Throne of Games for Gallery 1988’s Old School Video Game Art show.

The Evolution Of Bond

Sellout? Because of the Heineken? Please people, I am a huge fan of James Bond and the touchstones of the films that pass from film to film, but I'm ok if he changes his drink to be able to continue on the revival of this character.

But other than that, I like Tokyosexwhale's take on the 007s.

The First Casualty Of War Toys Is Innocence

The Toy Story toys have a lot of time on their hands while waiting to be played with. So of course they have taken to remaking classic movie posters and scenes. As one would. (Jim Tuckwell via The High Definite)

The Breakfastables

There is nothing I don't love about this image. Nothing. These breakfast cereal mascots were as much a part of my childhood mornings as many of the Expendables actors were part of my teenaged evenings. Are they as washed up? Hard to say, but they don't have the hold on that they once did.

Breakfast today. Legends Forever. (The Breakfastables by Andy MacDonald, via Comics Alliance)

The Church Of The Mushroom Kingdom

Our Mario, who art in castles
hallowed be thy Name,
thy Mushroom Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
in castles as it is in warp zones.
Give us this day our daily 1-UP
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive Koopas
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into lava,
but deliver us from Bowser.
For thine is the Mushroom Kingdom,
and the power-ups, and the Starman,
for ever and ever.

(Mushroom Kingdom by Ian Glaubinger)

The Justice League Of The Ottoman Empire

Because who wasn't wondering what the Justice League would like depicted in the Ottoman style of classical art? Berk Senturk satisfies that curiosity.

Game Of Thrones Last Supper

Got sucked into a Game of Thrones reddit thread and came across this Last Supper illustration by sheilalala on deviantart. My current and constant obsession together at last!

The disciples of Christ (in this case Tyrion "The Imp" Lannister) are divided between House Stark and House Lannister (and the small council), which doesn't seem like a very cohesive group - and adds a few extra disciples. It also appears to make Catelyn Stark the Judas figure to Tyrion's Christ. She did kidnap him, sure, but I'm not far enough in the books to know if there's more to it than that.
