|A New Year, a Fresh New Recyclotron|
| by Fëanor|
Fëanor pours the entire internet into the Recyclotron, and only the best links come out the other end for you to enjoy.
- You can listen to The Decemberists' new album, The King Is Dead, in its entirety on NPR. As the folks in the band have said in interviews, this album is a departure for them - simpler, more straightforward; not an epic concept album, just a collection of songs. As a result, I'm not as excited about it as I was about their more recent releases, but it's still good music.
- Yay! A hilarious new edition of Hark! A Vagrant!
- A visual history of Daft Punk's costumes. Daft Punk's cameo in Tron Legacy was one of my favorite scenes.
- You may have heard Pixar is doing a short film set in the Toy Story universe, centering on Barbie and Ken. The plot has been revealed.
- Watch polar bears attack and destroy the high tech spy cameras sent to film them.
- A 1991 Mexican Alka-Seltzer commercial directed by Guillermo Del Toro - it features a werewolf, naturally.
- Neil Gaiman offers a very fine New Year's benediction.
- Awesome Christmas card by Nick Edwards, featuring Santa riding a dinosaur and firing a laser cannon.
- Pac-Man's cameo in Tron, revealed!
- Nice custom Hellboy figure.
- Cult classic movies turned into comic books. I particularly like Legend #18, which features the return of Darkness, and The Other Adventures of the Dread Pirate Roberts #74. (Via)
- If you're going to Germany any time soon (or you live there), beware the radioactive wild boars!!
- I've been looking forward to seeing the entries in Super Punch's latest monthly art contest - the one centering on Stanley Kubrick's Lord of the Rings film adaptation, starring the Beatles - and now they've finally been revealed! As it happens, the site's erstwhile creator, Mr. Struan, is having a hard time picking a winner, and is asking for your help on deciding, so head on over and tell him your favorite.
- Download Squad picks its 12 favorite time-wasters of 2010. Might have to waste some time with these soon...
- Sad news: great character actor Pete Postlethwaite has died.
- Going up for auction on January 13th: the Playboy pinup that was smuggled aboard Apollo 12.
- Cute 8-bit version of Tron Legacy, based on Mega Man sprites, complete with an 8-bit version of Daft Punk's "Derezzed."
