45 awesome seconds of 8bit sound and video madness by Saitone. The video was released as a tribute to Michael Jackson.
Vanja Mrgan, a talented illustrator from Croatia, is a self-confessed “geek and an all around alright kinda guy.”
Vanja’s latest series of illustrations feature (normally clean-shaven) pop culture icons sporting thick, luxuriant beards.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Hilarious illustrations by Patrick Moberg.
So damn true. The other vices are here. [Warning: NSFW language]

But I just *know* that the zombies are hiding in the shadows.
Mills & Boon, the highly successful publisher of romantic novels, is celebrating it’s centenary year. The novels have sold in the hundreds of millions, lapped up by a staunchly loyal readership base. Often criticized for being misogynist as well as sexist, the themes of the novels have moved in a decidedly raunchier direction.

Pigeon Impossible is an animated short film made by Lucas Martell.
A rookie C.I.A. agent faces his greatest nightmare, when he loses control of his nuclear briefcase to an evil pigeon (yes, a pigeon). With the fate of the entire world at stake, the agent has to use all his skills to counter his deadly winged adversary.
To know whether he succeeds in saving the world, you will have to watch the film to find out.

Here are some of the funnier submissions:
- “We’ll pay you two thousand now, plus fifteen when we reach Alderaan.”
- “Millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.”
- “I shouldn’t have come… I’ve endangered the mission”
- “I don’t think the Empire had wookies in mind when they designed her, Chewie.”
And finally, the one that takes the cake, IMHO - “I am your father.”
If things were this simple, it just wouldn’t be so much fun (but I’m sure my wife would disagree).
The short film was made using photographs taken over a period of nine months. More on the making of the film.
