…Philias can be fun?

Philias

People get aroused by the strangest things, and though it’s tough to imagine what’s going through the mind of a somnophiliac as they get aroused by watching someone else sleep or a dacryphiliac as they get turned on by the thought of making someone else cry, it’s actually kind of funny to see it all in comic form.

Dustin Glick’s Fun World of Philias details 25 strange and unusual ways to get your rocks off, and adds enough hearts to almost make you forget your watching an apotemnophiliac get turned on from the thought of having a limb amputated.

Almost.

…The Grawlix is #@$&ing cool?

Grawlix

You know the string of symbols that come out of a cartoon character’s mouth every time they swear?

Apparently it’s called a Grawlix.

Mort Walker (the Beetle Bailey cartoonist) coined the term around 1964, and though the Oxford English Dictionary doesn’t officially recognize it as a word, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start using it every chance you get.

#@&%?$!

…Jowling is crazy looking?

Jowling

Jowling (AKA the Slap n’ Flap) is a photography technique where the subject completely relaxes their facial muscles and then shakes their head side to side as fast as they can.

The end result is a funny/silly picture that gives anyone’s face cartoon like proportions, and is perfect for capturing those candid moments.

Just something to keep in mind during your next family portraits…

…It’s Movie Monday: Big Buck Bunny?

Big Buck Bunny

Blender is an open source 3D modeling software, and to help promote the fact that it is a suitable environment for professional level 3D animation, Blender created an animated short called Big Buck Bunny.

Big Buck Bunny is a big rabbit with an even bigger heart, but when three rodents start to harass him, something snaps, and he enacts his revenge in a typically cartoonish fashion:

If you’d like to see how they did it, then check out the Big Buck Bunny website, where you can download the source files for the movie and more.

…Superheroes age?

Old Superheroes

Donald Soffritti likes to draw cartoons of what superheroes would look like after they retired and moved to Florida.

I guess even the mighty must fall eventually.
