Visit the Google homepage today and you might recognize a familiar face: Gumby is in the Google Doodle spotlight. The doodle, which commemorates the 90th birthday of late Gumby creator Art Clokey (he passed in January 2010), is also animated — clicking on the colored balls of clay reveals the whole Gumby gang, including Pokey the horse and the Blockheads.
To commemorate what would have been Queen singer Freddie Mercury’s 65th birthday this weekend, Google published a Mercury-ized doodle on their homepage, along with an accompanying animated video. The clip imagines the late star (who passed away in 1991 due to AIDS complications), cavorting through a heavenscape packed with 8-bit objects and some of his most iconic outfits.
A turbine-powered Batmobile replica manufactured by Pusch Racing Designs can be yours for $620,000. Owner Casey Pusch posted the car on eBay, but thus far, we suspect the listing has attracted more bloggers and comic fans than serious buyers.
The cast of the Coen brothers’ cult classic ‘The Big Lebowski‘ reunited last night to celebrate the film’s Blu-Ray release. The event went down at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom, where Jeff Bridges (the Dude), John Goodman (Walter), Steve Buscemi (Donny), John Turturro (the Jesus) and Julianne Moore (Maude) gathered to reminisce about the film in a live panel.
Our friends at PopCrush assembled an epic list of the worst album covers released in the top half of 2011, including atrocities from Lady Gaga, Limp Bizkit and 311. We must say, there’s something about the digital age that makes artists release pretty awful cover art — could it be that in the age of Spotify and iTunes, they think these’ll never actually get seen any larger than thumbnail-size?
Barack Obama must be gunning for the grammar school vote with all the kids he's been charming lately. After calming a crying infant earlier this week, the official White House YouTube channel shows him visiting with lots of other young constituents, teaching us some valuable lessons in how to win over these future voters:
Alex Thomas and Scott Jones, the couple who made headlines after being caught in a kiss at the Vancouver riots last week, appeared on ‘Today’ this morning to tell the story behind the makeout session seen ’round the internet. Jones explained that Thomas had been knocked to the ground by police trying to tame the crowd (which a video that emerged over the weekend supports) and he was only trying to soothe her:
After the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins in Game Seven of the Stanley Cup finals, hockey fans took to the streets of British Columbia’s capital city in a massive riot. With so much passion in the air, somebody was bound to get some action: Photographer Rich Lam snapped a couple making out somewhere between the throbbing horde and a line of riot police. See the full image below:
The infinitely talented star of ‘Big’ and ‘Cast Away’ isn’t just the subject of the publication, FoD also imagines him as its cocky editor-in-chief. Hanks’ letter from the editor in the inaugural issue declares, “I could kill a man and nobody would care.” Some of the hilarious coverlines sadly don’t exist as full articles (we’d read ”An exclusive interview with Wilson” in a minute), but there is a preview for next month’s swimsuit issue, which we hope becomes a reality.
