Gonegator Linky

The Alligator left on a jet plane this morning. He will bring the new sport of gatorball back to its spiritual home, the United States of America. Here, we will have to gatorball on without him.

Here’s a link he sent me a month ago: some crazy ant photos. David Attenborough this ain’t.

He saw Taika Waititi’s film Boy the other night and appreciated the early-80s Kiwi charm: Maori smurf and the use of “egg” as an insult were particular favourites. But it reminded me that in NZ, “bro” appears to mean something very different to what it means in the U.S. Witness these bro subtitles:

(via the AVClub, which notes this is a promotion for a translation of On The Road into Bro-speak.)
See also the stupendous Three Word Phrase, a 4-panel comic by Ryan Pequin, which has been hitting Bro notes lately. Check out this and this and this and this. (Then just subscribe to Three Word Phrase because it’s amazing.)

Stars of frequently-spoiled TV shows school you on spoiler etiquette:

Guy invents covers for recent Doctor Who stories as if they’d been turned into novelisations during the classic era of the show.

Winter is coming! no that isn’t a game of thrones reference, down here winter really is coming. We use upside-down fires in our place – if you have a woodburner and don’t know about this method, you should. Campers should also pay attention.

This has been in the linky file for over a year, time to air it out:

BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.

Likewise this fascinating collection of amateur photos.

And this, Fantasy Travel Posters (but aren’t they all?)

101 micro-stories that make you think, laugh, cry, etc.

Photos of women operating big mainframe computers.

Weird doll photographs

Interesting letterhead designs

The hunt for the worst movie of all time. (Eat Pray Love is a good place to start.)

Read Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman

Inspired by Banksy, a family leaves painted stuff in places.

And finally… self-portraits while levitating

    That review of Barf, Barf, Barf is one of my favourite things ever. As far as I am concerned, the existence of the internet has now been justified so anything from here on it is just a bonus.

    Eat,pray,love!!! How could you not love this movie??????????? My wife made me watch it. I know I love and trust her. So I ventured into this movie in the secure knowledge she would do me no wrong. I now find that I understand the emotional turmoil that is a relationship and that eating is so much fun. I also found that one side effect of watching this movie is I have no balls anymore and when other guys mock me and punch me hard, I realise, I deserve their cruel ribbing. If I had only poked my own eyes out with a rusty fork before this movie I would still be the man I was.
