What if Dr. Seuss Created 'Star Wars'?

What if Dr. Seuss Created 'Star Wars'?
digg_url = ‘ tweetmeme_url = ‘ tweetmeme_source = ‘comicsalliance’; The whimsical speech of Jedi Master Yoda may have progressed from endearingly eccentric to Jar-Jarringly annoying in recent years and in recent films, but the 900-year-old’s memorable dialogue and that of other characters from the Star Wars saga has been somewhat redeemed by cartoonist Adam Watson with some inspiration from an unlikely source: Dr. Seuss, who really should have created a book about something called a Nerfherder. Acting on that anarchic artist impulse that we love so much about the Internet, Watson reimagined some famous Star Wars scenes and characters in the style of the legendary children’s author, going so far as to create all-new rhymes in the Seussian tradition. The results are of course excellent, and like all the coolest things, make you wonder why nobody did this before.

Pokemon's Ten Most Disturbing Pokedex Entries Last week, Pokemon Black and White were finally released in America as the two latest installments of the long-running video game franchise. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced, to the point where I’ve been reading through the Pokedex — the official in-game database that describes all 649 Pokemon — and in doing so, I’ve discovered something: For a game made for children about adorable monsters, there’s a lot of really disturbing stuff in Pokemon. Okay, okay, admittedly: It’s a game made for children about adorable monsters who are sent out to fight each other for the enjoyment of their owners like gladiators battling at the pleasure of a ten year-old Caligula. But it’s one thing to have Mewtwo listed as being the product of “years of horrific gene splicing” (Pokemon Red), and quite another to have multiple creatures whose sole purpose is to drag children kicking and screaming through the gates of Hell, and that’s not an exaggeration.

A Growing Backlash Against 'Amish Exploitation' In Pennsylvania Lebanon Levi (center) is depicted as the ringleader in Discovery's Amish Mafia. Locals in Lancaster County, Pa., say the reality TV show and its spinoffs are offensive fabrications. Discovery Networks hide caption Sagaki Keita (click images for detail) Artist Sagaki Keita was born in 1984 and lives and works in Tokyo. His densely composited pen and ink illustrations contain thousands of whimsical characters that are drawn almost completely improvised. I am dumbstruck looking at these and love the wacky juxtaposition of fine art and notebook doodles. See more of his work here, and be sure to click the images above for more detail.

The Best of Socially Awkward Penguin From the hive mind that brought you Family Tech Support Guy comes Socially Awkward Penguin. He’s a penguin. He’s socially awkward. He’s surprisingly easy to relate to, unless you’re 1) incredibly confident or 2) so socially awkward that not even a penguin can speak for you. The Best Online Sources For Images Jeez, there are sure a ton of ways to find images on the Web, as well as many places where you can find lengthy link lists to image collections. I’d lay odds that most people, including myself, just use Google Image Search when they need to find an image. However, there might be instances when you want to use another tool — perhaps you’re a language teacher searching for just the right clip art or photography to illustrate a verb, maybe you have very young students and are concerned about what they might find on Google, possibly you’re particularly teaching about copyright issues, or you want your students to easily connect an image to a writing exercise and have them send an E-Card. (Google has recently added an option in their advanced image search feature — go to the bottom left under “license” and choose “labeled for reuse”)
