The New Face of “Evil”

2013/03/29

Ceremonial titles and changing gender roles can lead to some strange situations.

Progress is an odd, odd thing sometimes.

Progress can be a funny thing.

Accessorizing Your PlayStation

2013/03/25

Let’s face it: nothing sucks more than being dead. But you know what the second worst thing about being a ghost is? You get to stick around and see what happens to the body you leave behind.

Dude, can't you just get a lid sticker like a normal gamer? :P

Subliminally Yours – Part 2: Who Framed Roger Rabbit

2013/03/17

In some of the action sequences where Eddie Valiant is seen moving insanely quickly while interacting with toons – most notably during the Benny the Cab chase sequence and after going from floor to ceiling pancake while riding the elevator with Droopy – what the audience is seeing isn’t (an image of) Bob Hoskins composited into the shot, but an animated version of him.

What a Drag – Part 2

2013/03/13

There’re some rumors that you can’t escape even when you’re dead.

Subliminally Yours – Part 1: Wreck-It Ralph

2013/03/09

Yet another new series of posts dedicated to things that creators sneak into their works and which generally go unnoticed because they’re either presented in an unusual fashion or literally pass in the blink of an eye.

To start things off, here’s one from the climactic confrontation between Vanellope Von Schweetz and King Candy in the movie Wreck-It Ralph. When the former asks who the latter is after his true identity is revealed, for one single frame, while he’s glitching between his two very different appearances, he breaks the fourth wall and does this:

Me Grimlock Feel Fancy!

2013/03/01

When prolific Transformer fanartist Rekka started taking requests on her Tumblr blog, This Is Bad Comedy, for things that we’d like to see her draw, I almost immediately recalled this scene of Grimlock dressed as a waiter from the classic series episode Madman’s Paradise

Why would robots need giant glasses of booze? o_O

…and decided to up the ante by requesting an image of him dressed in a French maid outfit. And this was the end result:
