It’s the weekend you guys! But I still have tons of stuff to do so I’m knocking this out quick and fairly early. Let’s get to the links.

*Animated GIFs* *Japan*
Animated Avatars

Here is a collection of tiny black and white animated gifs from Japan. Feel free to use them for every avatar you’ll ever have online ever again. For the record I think my favorite one is number 570.

*Augmented Reality* *Puppetry*

It says a lot about Duncan Jones that I’m excited for a movie that’s pretty much Quantum Leap with Jake Gyllenhaal.

*Comedy* *Justice*

I’m kind of pissed he wasted his TV show shot on the talk show format because this is clearly the direction he should have gone in. Go. Listen.

*Art* *Comics*

Warren Ellis is a mad genius and an evil evil man and this week’s way he proved it was by having people come up with the poster for a David Lynch directed Spider-man Film.

*Animals* *Clothing*
A Squirrel’s Guide to Fashion

This exists so life is once again good.

*Food* *History*

I sorta have nothing snarky to add about this. Just read it, it’s awesome.

*Codes* *Art*

This is still one of my few favorite things about the military industrial complex.
