You find the strangest stuff over on Etsy sometimes. Like this mask which envisions a hybrid between Batman and Bane. The artist who made it likes to call it “Batbane.” I just like to call it straight-up weird.
While physical books and magazines are clearly going the way of the dodo bird, one genre of print which is still going strong is the graphic novel. And you can’t mention graphic novels these days without mentioning The Walking Dead.
If you’ve ever tried to put out seed for birds, you know how much of a pain in the butt those pesky squirrels can be – hogging the feeders and stealing all the birdseed. If you want to get revenge on those meddling little rodents, then here’s a solution.
Now that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm, you might be wondering what sort of stuff we might expect from this $4 billion marriage. While there’s word of Episode VII (and possibly VIII and IX) finally going into production, there are also some less-than-exciting possibilities – like these reimagined, Disnified versions of Star Wars characters by illustrator John Martz.
For the generation schooled by Wikipedia, babysat by YouTube and bred by bloggers… Ours is a university where everyone knows everyone (despite never having seen each other), where we major in everything and master nothing.
Minecraft is an adventure game. Minecraft is a horror game. Minecraft is an engineering game. Minecraft is a chemistry game. All of it is made possible by mixing and stacking it’s most basic parts, its elements.

While much of the world knows the game with a round black and white ball as “football,” here in the U.S., we call the game “soccer.” So this picture of multiple Spocks dressed up in soccer uniforms probably only makes sense here, in Canada and maybe Australia.
This is how the New England office (blue) of Dealer.com is connected to the company’s California office (orange). Either that, or this is actually a shot of Aperture Science Laboratories, with webcams included as props to throw us off.
You don’t usually see much creativity in the design of rain gutters and downspouts. They all pretty much look the same to me (when the bums in the alley aren’t stealing them for scrap metal).
