OK. Deep breath. Here we go: Tina, Bob, and Louise; The Human Torch, Red Skull, Captain America, and the Sub Mariner; an alien woman I don’t recognize; Princess Bubblegum and the Ice King; Russell and Kevin; zombie Barbies; a life-size Henry Cavill of your very own, to have and to hold, to hug and to squeeze; OMG MIND FREEZE. MY BRAIN JUST STARTED BUFFERING. I HAVE NO IDEA. PRINCESS AMETHYST? WITH RED ARROW? HELP, HELP, ANYONE?; Captain Marvel and Supes; Wonder Woman with A SUPERCOOL LIGHT-UP LASSO!; a giant Joker Head; and, um, a gender-swapped Ice King? (Photos: Michael Roha)
Not too long ago, the people at I Love Dust were asked by the Cartoon Network to work with them on a music video for the network’s 20th-birthday celebration. What resulted was this trippy epic two-minute video featuring original music from Mad Decent and virtually every character Cartoon Network has had over the past 20 years. Of course, you’ve probably seen it numerous times – it’s not new, it’s on iTunes, Amazon, and the Cartoon Network’s YouTube channel – but we hadn’t seen it until today. And it made our day, oh boy. So let’s look at it again right now.
I’m in the process of making my annual “Hottest Boys of the Year” list, and so far it’s lots of OBVIOUS ones like Harry Styles OF COURSE and the NASA mohawk guy DUH and Tyler Hoechlin from Teen Wolf blah blah blah, but then I realized if we are talking ABSOLUTE PERFECTION there’s no one hotter than Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians, AM I RIGHT? The ne plus ultra supertwink OF THE WORLD! (If a thousand-year-old cartoon character can be classified as a supertwink). He reminds me of a busboy from Area that I used to chase around in the ’80s, a little skate punk with white-white hair like that, which, as you know, just SENDS ME. I’ll post the full list the week between Christmas in New Year’s. In the mean time, who do YOU think should be on this year’s list? I’m open to suggestions.
The GOP’s vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s Secret Service name (now not so secret) is “Bowhunter” because he likes to kill animals with his trusty bow and arrow. Their name for his wife Jenna is “Buttercup.” We can only think of the Powerpuff Girl or the iconic cow as possible reasons for that name. (via Towleroad)
To top last year’s “Gaga’s Workshop” holiday display, Barneys New York has teamed up with Disney for a season they’re calling “Electric Holiday.” Some of Disney’s most beloved characters, like Minnie Mouse, Cruella de Vil, and Snow White, have been transformed into suitably anorexic runway models in couture getups, based on the designers’ sketches. Here, Daisy Duck is svelt in Dolce & Gabbana and Goofy kicks Johnny Depp’s pirate ass in Balmain. (via OMG Blog, via WWD)
Gay.net made this list, go there to see their full explanations of what makes each character so incredibly gay. Of course I would argue that they forgot Squidward, Spongebob and Patrick, Him from Power Puff Girls, the devil guy from Cow and Chicken, Xandir from Drawn Together, Jughead from Archie, Peppermint Patty and Marcie from Peanuts, and Fred from Scooby Doo (OH COME ON, YOU KNOW HE WAS). Who else are we forgetting?
