    DIY Star Wars Snowflakes by Matters of Grey

    San Diego based blogging collective Matters of Grey have created some templates to help you make some Star Wars themed snowflakes. Very seasonal but they probably don’t get too many real snowflakes in San Diego. Download the templates, get your scissors and start cutting!

  3. George Takei seeks to unite Star Folk behind a common enemy: Twilight. (He also refers to Buffy! I love this man.)

    you know how rappers sometimes discover other rappers? it’d be cool if they were like jedi and took on padawan apprentices. they’d travel the world in cloaks seeking out swag sensitive individuals and then take them away to a temple in the mountains to study how to be a recording artist.

    like lil…

    I love everything this post chooses to be.

    I feel like Kanye West already does this.

    I think Usher is actually doing this with Justin Bieber.

    Think about it.

    I think it’d be great if you changed where Waldo was hiding whenever you got this piece touched up.

  6. Alas, only The Grillenium Falcon is real. The rest of these TV and movie-themed food trucks are just Photoshopped. I particularly like “This is Spinal Tapas”, “The Pielander”, and “A Clockwork Orange Julius”.

    This one wasn’t Photoshopped, but it was too good to leave out: “Snack to the Future”

    Good news, everyone! The Matrix isn’t a complete piece of shit*!

    I like The Matrix theory too—it’s a new spin on an old sci-fi theme.

    I also like the fan theory that Neville was the true chosen one, not Harry Potter…:

    But the best part of the theory, the part that makes it all come together, is the idea that Dumbledore, the principal of Wizard High, was intentionally allowing Voldemort to think Harry was the chosen one just to protect Neville. While we’re not saying they should have just ditched Harry in the last book and turned the other kid into the protagonist, it would have been pretty cool to have Harry find out he wasn’t the center of the universe after all, if only because it would have made the character slightly less insufferable.

    …because I think Harry Potter is a royal dingus.

     
  9. My day at the entertainment division of the evil empire

    We got to stroll around Fox Studios, where my brother works. We went on a weekend day when there aren’t any tours going on. It’s a surprisingly small lot:

    A couple of the many Houses That Groening Built. Seriously, The Simpsons buildings are like, half the lot.

    Even though Futurama has moved to Comedy Central, the show and David X. Cohen still have reserved spaces on the Fox lot:

    "New York City"

    The cute little bungalows where starlets under contract to Fox used to live (including many mistresses of studio executives).

    While people might still be screwing in them, the buildings are just offices now.

    Rupert Murdoch apparently has a thing about the ducks that nest near his office. The first sign reads “CAUTION: DUCK CROSSING”. The next one reads, “PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS”.

    So the official Fox policy regarding ducks is basically The Prime Directive.

    For some reason, there is topiary everywhere. No matter how hard I pressed him, my brother couldn’t give me an adequate explanation as to why.

    I smell a conspiracy.

    Penguins, a deer, a cello.

    What does it mean, Rupert? What are you trying to tell me?

Film Twins
A collection of famous fictional twins as they may have looked in the womb… or perhaps more appropriately, in their creator’s brain. This artwork is based on medical diagrams and black and white ultrasound photos.
T-shirts of each individual set of twins are available along with a print of all six - http://www.redbubble.com/people/mrwhaite/collections/65735-movie-twins
I’m planning to deliver six more sets of twins soon. Ouch.
